MagicMarc Thanks for the feedback! Glad you like the idea. I added in Sentinel Tower instead of Mystic Retrieval hopefully that will speed the deck up a little.

Hey! Love the deck idea.

Some cards I'd recommend:

Elixir of Immortality for saving your graveyard.

Mystic Retrieval to pull from your graveyard.

Anger is a great card to have in your graveyard.

Desperate Ravings could be fun.

Pirate's Pillage for card draw, but Careful Study or Tormenting Voice would be better!

You may also consider Frantic Search, Faithless Looting, Looter il-Kor, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, or Dack Fayden!

Hey jeah ofc i can i will only suggest "cheap" 2 mana artifacts here you go: Coldsteel Heart Prismatic Lens Fire Diamond Sky Diamond

dont be afraid of the "enter the battlefield tapped" 2cmc rocks they are still good

i can really recommend Gilded Lotus it will generate the RRR you need for Niv

if you play Mystic Retrieval you dont need the eldrazi to shuffle your graveyard in your library:

draw your deck with your combo

get infinite mana with scepter and dramatic reversal(some fast mana really helps with this)

cast Echo of Eons

draw your deck again

cast Mystic Retrieval on your echo

cast Echo of Eons

repeat until everyone is dead

This looks like a solid budget build.

Unfortunately both of these have recently gone up in $$, but AEtherize and Jace's Archivist feel like they work well in this deck. Bounce your opponent's creatures and then force discard at instant speed.

Nivix Guildmage is a versatile creature that's more repeatable than Desolate Lighthouse and also lets you get extra value off your spells.

Given how much discard you have, I imagine that some graveyard recursion could be useful. You already have good flashback cards, but even adding just Mystic Retrieval is probably useful.

Kalamata If you get to 4 experience counters then you can cast Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, or Seething Song and copy it with Reiterate. At four counters Mizzix will reduce the spell and buyback cost to just 2 red mana (Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, and Seething Song will produce more than 2). Therefore you produce infinite mana, rack up your storm count as high as you want, and then cast Banefire for the win. The storm count only really matters for Temporal Fissure, and Thousand-Year Storm is more of a bait than a mandatory win con (I usually win without it), but that's the main combo.

You can grab almost all of the pieces with Firemind's Foresight (Either Mystical Tutor (To grab Banefire), Whispers of the Muse (assuming you have 5 experience counters), or a counterspell for 1, Desperate Ritual for 2, and Reiterate on 3).

You can also win through Enter the Infinite and either Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

Past in Flames, Mystic Retrieval, Snapcaster Mage, and Mizzix's Mastery give you redundancy and let you keep going even if someone stops or counters you (Though that is part of the reason we run so many counter spells).

All in all, the deck plays very quiet and unassuming until it's ready, at which point it explodes.
