There's lots of legendary lands you can search for with Sisay. Academy Ruins is one options that gives you retrieval (and synergy with Dagsson). Dark Depths , Inventors' Fair , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , and Yavimaya Hollow are all other useful options too. Of course, lands tend to be $$$ expensive, so yeah...

Laboratory Maniac + Paradigm Shift does work like this: Paradigm Shift does exchange your library with your graveyard. If you have not many cards in the graveyard, then you may win pretty easy with Laboratory Maniac and any draw card.
- IF Laboratory Maniac is in your library while you are playing Paradigm Shift , then this card would be put into your graveyard and your commander Lazav, the Multifarious can turn into the Maniac.
- IF you have your combo pieces in your library, Paradigm Shift puts everything into the graveyard. That means, you may instant combo off with Necrotic Ooze and any other card. I strongly recommend to put in Grand Architect + Pili-Pala for infinite mana.
- This combo works well with your Mirror-Mad Phantasm , also with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , both cards help you to win with the alternative of having no cards in your library. Therefore please consider Leveler , because it's a 10/10 and helps the idea of winning with Laboratory Maniac .
With Doomsday you are able to put your cards in your library you need to win the game. Fantastic with Laboratory Maniac . A little bit of a risk to play this card. But wow, what an impact does this card make. Guess every opponent can't believe the awesomeness of playing this card.
On the other hand, if you are not going into this idea please take a look at "The Many-Faced God" - [[Primer]], because this deck works nearly the same as your deck wants to work.
If you are going to buy any of this card, please don't haste. This deck needs many test games to see what cards will word and what cards won't. There are many expensive cards you don't need at all. Like Wasteland . Play Strip Mine , this card is cheaper to buy and is better. The only reason that Wasteland is expensive is that Wasteland is unbanned in the popular MTG Play Format "Legacy" and Strip Mine is banned.
You may reduce costs in you lands, if you like to get a more budget reasonable deck. Bloodstained Mire , Marsh Flats , Polluted Delta are way too expensive for their effect. They are 1) better in other formats like Legacy or Modern and 2) you are playing 2 colors, so normally you have both colors available. Sunken Ruins , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Shizo, Death's Storehouse are good if you have them already, otherwise they won't make that big impact (They are indeed good cards, just saying) if you need to buy them.

I'd recommend adding a Kefnet the Mindful . He helps you draw cards and is also an indestructible blocker than can help you mill more cards. His ability also helps you reset certain lands like Bojuka Bog for repeated uses. You can also use it to use Minamo, School at Water's Edge 's ability twice in a turn (activate Minamo, return it to hand with Kefnet, play Minamo and activate it again).

captainamerica thanks for the suggestions.
I put Restoration Angel for a flash flying creature but it's a flex slot. Minamo, School at Water's Edge in theory should make Dragonlord Ojutai a hexproof, flying, vigilance creature, but still flex slot. Reflector Mage is something I can consider since it bounces threaths.

1) Tap Merieke to control a creature 2) Tap Minamo to untap Merieke, the controlled creature is removed 3) Tap Merieke again to control another creature 4) +2 on Venser to exile Minamo until the next end step 5) When Minamo returns, you can untap Merike again to remove the second creature 6) Tap Merieke again to control another creture

ShutUpMokuba: Thanks, glad you like it!
Anything that's out of your budget range just replace with something that has a similar effect and the deck will still run smoothly, perhaps a bit slower, but smooth none the less.

The land denial is a very valid option, just one I have personal dislike for. If your playgroup is more cutthroat or that's a strategy you enjoy then definitely throw that in.
I did consider Mox Diamond , it didn't make it in mostly due to initial budgetary reasons and may eventually make it in if I can find an FTV one for a non-insane price, although that extra mana rock hasn't been necessary.
Mox Opal I had not considered. I don't think my density of artifacts is high enough to consistently turn it on turn 1 or 2 where you really need it. I still don't think I do but I originally hadn't run the artifact lands nor the artifact tutors.
As I work on this would probably prioritize: Obtain WAR stuff > get the MagicFest plains & islands > finish foiling/promo(ing) the current list ( Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Cryptic Command , Chrome Mox , Mana Vault , Council's Judgment , Nimbus Maze , Seat of the Synod , Return to Dust ) > then pick up items like Mox Opal and Mox Diamond
