No moar exile, draw as many cards as you want
Also potent in lifegain, the other day i was playing ravos/tymna cleric edh and i achieved infinite life and needed a wincon, so i paid 65 life and exiled all but 10 cards from my deck, chose the 7 I needed and left the rest to the blind eternities
Its one hell of a card in edh for card draw/value, and with cards like library of leng, Reliquary Tower or heavy lifegain you can basically ignore its downside and draw as much as you want..
My personal favorite combo, either Donate your 'potence to an opponent or target an opponent with 'potence in play, then use Mindslaver or Emrakul, the Promised End to steal their turn and pay all of their life except for 1
You used to be able to draw their entire deck/pay all of their life to kill them, but now you can just leave them with 1 life and 1 card in library
Still a great card to abuse on your side as much as opponents side :p

I forgot to mention, between low block potential and very high cmc, all 3 bolas cards are too slow and only really get one activation for soo much mana
But what ive noticed as i put money into the deck is it does best when played like storm, casting rocks and rituals and a pain spell and then chaining wheels for spike damage, the cumulative upkeep stuff is rather slow and really draws hate from opponents before you can kill them, and you are forcefeeding draw but you dont necessarily want them to use the cards you let them draw,
Price of Knowledge is ok, but in order to achieve the speed for storm, its really hard on the mama base, the only card above 6 cmc i run in mine is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and i never cast them they're only as a more useful Library of Leng
On top of being able to chain wheels after sticking a 1-4 cmc pain enchantment like Liliana's Caress Underworld Dreams or a discard/draw/combo engine 4-6 cmc like Dream Halls, Waste Not Rhystic Study, playing dimir colors means you have access to the best tutors for wheels and graveyard recursion, ive found that filling my graveyard by discarding wheels as a massive secondary hand and then either resetting the mill with the eldrazi titan while milling opponents out often removes the need for Library of Leng, but its a good card to learn the deck in the sense it teaches you what you want to keep or discard during wheels, plus if you have 50 cards in graveyard casting a Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery usually wins me the game with either 300-500 burst damage or decking opponents
Theres plenty of budget ways to recast wheels and other important spells from the graveyard you usually can fill up relatively fast
Non budget versions would be
Tutors really help you with getting the enchantments, protection or wheels you need to gain the lead, ill start with budget
Better but more expensive options

Just stopped by cuz I'm currently making my own Linessa, Zephyr Mage edh deck and was looking to see what kinds of things other people have done with her. I would probably go for making a less intensive set-up and cut back on cards that are only useful in the set-up. I would drop all the type changing things and the Myr Reservoir stuff as that doesn't really do you much good if you don't have the cards to pair with it.
Two other Linessa options I'm working with:
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage's emblem - with 10 mana, you can play Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and Deepglow Skate in the same turn, allowing you to get the emblem as soon as you play Tamiyo, the Moon Sage. Once you have the emblem, play Linessa, clone her, send the real one to your graveyard (hand thanks to the emblem), and infinitely activate the clone's Grandeur ability thanks to the emblem.
Alternatively, you can use a more card intensive combo (but the pieces themselves are fairly good on their own) of :
Library of Leng + Mind Over Matter + Arcanis the Omnipotent - With all 3 in play, a Linessa clone in play, and the real Linessa in your hand (I use Mirror Gallery to get the clone out and a bounce effect on the real Linessa). Discard Linessa for Grandeur, discard another card to untap Arcanis the Omnipotent (if needed), and discard a 3rd to untap a land (to ensure you don't mill yourself and gives you infinite mana if you need it). All three go to the top of your library due to Library of Leng. Draw 3 cards with Arcanis the Omnipotent. Repeat as many times as you want.
The best part about using these ways to combo is that the cards are helpful by themselves, outside of combos. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage is just a great blue walker, and her emblem will never be bad. Deepglow Skate is not needed, but I run a fair number of planeswalkers so it can get multiple ultimate abilities ready to go in one turn. Library of Leng is good for the maximum hand size increase if nothing else, but allowing you to reuse things is also great (helps avoid things like Relic of Progenitus and Bojuka Bog too). Arcanis the Omnipotent is an excellent draw engine even without the Mind Over Matter giving him super powers. Mind Over Matter is just an excellent tool that is super flexible.

I don't entirely understand the Mind Over Matter+ Isochron Scepter with High Tide. You need lots of cards in hand for MoM to untap the scepter then you need two mana to tap the scepter, then finally what are you using the mana you made with this on, cause you discarded all your cards unless you have Library of Leng out.
Dramatic Reversal on the scepter with 2-3 rocks would get infinite mana alot easier.
Frantic Search is also just to good not to run especially in Mizzix

Thanks for the ideas. Currently I was working with all I had, but with what you and others have said I may need to go out and buy some. Ivory Tower sounds like a great idea for the 1 drop! And I think I just traded for a Collective Defiance. Library of Leng and Dream Halls, previously mentioned sound a bit OP and fun.
I will update this deck as ideas come forward, Thanks again

No problem! I'm usually not too good at cuts, though...but I'll try my best! Your enchantments look fine, and you could honestly use the free slots from cuts to slot more in. As for everything else, I can see a few things to cut. I'll try and keep the list orderly, though I'm not too good at formatting.
Simulacrum seems fine if you want to keep it. Twiddle, on the other hand, is almost completely outclassed by another card, Dramatic Reversal. One card I forgot to mention earlier in my suggestions is Isochron Scepter, which is great with a lot of instants, and is part of an infinite combo with Dramatic Reversal. That's all for these.
Feldon's Cane seems like a slightly worse Elixir of Immortality, and it's an effect that only really needs a "one-of." Neurok Stealthsuit is just unnecessary. Icy Manipulator and Library of Leng seem like super neat, weird cards, but perhaps not the most effective in practice. Darksteel Ingot might be better served as a Chromatic Lantern or Fellwar Stone.
I think that about wraps things up! Your landbase is perfectly fine as is, especially with those dual lands. Though, looking over your deck again, I noticed a really heavy milling theme. As such, I'd like to recommend Phenax, God of Deception. Perhaps as a commander, perhaps as one of the 99. In addition to this, I'd also like to recommend Tree of Perdition. A great partner for Phenax. Now, finally, I think that about does it. If you need anything else, message me. I'll gladly help out.
