I like Chandra's Ignition , good call. Punch is definitely a win con. I threw in Mystic Retrieval just so i could recall it a couple times, but good to have more options. 100 cards is a lot to get through when just looking for 1.

I am not sure if I have one in my collection, will have to check tonight.

Thanks for the view.

I really like some of your ideas to produce mana and will be incorporating them into my version. It's Mizzix in the Mix if you would like to look and see if my ideas work for you.

I went more "all in" on the experience counters and have found that colored mana is at a premium. Therefore, I changed my counter spells from things like Counterflux, Dissipate, or Spell Crumple to things like Condescend, Power Sink, or Syncopate. That way I only need one blue open and I always get an experience counter. Mindswipe gives added burn value, and I like Spell Burst over Forbid as the game lock.

I also tried to replace creatures with spells where possible, so Archaeomancer turned into Mystic Retrieval and Recall, and Lunar Mystic turned into Whispers of the Muse. I also found that effects like Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field didn't work as well for me as just having another burn spell. This may just personal style though.

Blasphemous Act takes out Mizzix with everything else. You could try Bonfire of the Damned, Sudden Demise, or even Rolling Thunder for some board control. Fanning the Flames looks even better in your list than mine I think.

You are right about there being a problem if Mizzix gets too expensive. I added Inexorable Tide to keep the experience counters coming even with Mizzix in the Command Zone. That allows you to just set up for one big turn where you recast him and win.

So if I have Time Spiral and Timetwister inside, we don’t need Mystic Retrieval? It’s almost always a dead card in hand and very expensive to cast. And Grafdigger shuts it off from the gy.

Also, what are your thought on Bonus Round?

Appreciate the help here. I’ve been playing this list with a few adjustments and I’m actually enjoying it. There’s one time wherein an opponent flashed Notion Thief before my turn (Niv already in play) and I just said, sure! In my draw phase though, ping that thief outta here. Haha.

First off, I assume you're somewhat on a budget for your land base? Personally I don't like the tap lands like Izzet Guildgate or Highland Lake. Cascade Bluffs, Swiftwater Cliffs, and Wandering Fumarole would be much better choices. You could also consider cycle lands like the Deserts from Amonkhet.

Aside from that you've got a lot of the spells matter token generators, but neglected Murmuring Mystic. I'd swap The Locust God for this since you're not particularly running a card draw theme.

There aren't a lot of cards that I'm super down on, but Arcane Denial is pretty bad. Same with Baral, Chief of Compliance. Counterspells aren't the best in commander, and you don't have enough for Baral to be worthwhile

Some other scattered thoughts:

Expansion / Explosion is imo way better than Invoke the Firemind

Mystic Retrieval and Mission Briefing are both more useful than Volcanic Vision

Viral Drake isn't that synergistic and could probably make room for something else

I'm a huge fan of Izzet Locket and Commander's Sphere as mana rocks.

Wild Ricochet and Mirari fit in your theme

Fabricate would be a good include to make your chain veil more consistent.

There's definitely more I could say, but this is enough of a text wall as it is.

I have made some changes to the deck, as I have been able to get hold of a few more cards I wanted:

Removed: Chemister's Insight, Command the Storm, Electrickery, Electrolyze, Izzet Charm, Lightning Strike, Ral's Dispersal, Stonefury Beacon Bolt, Divination, Invoke the Firemind, Precision Bolt, Roast, Windfall Nevinyrral's Disk Firemind's Research

Added: Mystical Tutor, Reiterate, Turnabout, Clockspinning, Shattering Pulse, Capsize, Gamble, Preordain, Vandalblast, Merchant Scroll, Mystic Retrieval, Past in Flames, High Tide, Hidden Strings, Misdirection, Young Pyromancer

This should give me a little more control, and has added some much needed combos in. Still not where I want to be with the deck overall yet, but all I could afford to put in for now. Will make some more changes after Christmas is out of the way, and once I have played with it a bit more to see what exactly needs doing.
