When Omenspeaker enters the battlefield, scry 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

Your CMC is way too high. 21 cards at 6+ mana, 31 at 5+! That's 1/5 and just shy of 1/3 your total deck respectively. I know you can play many for free but hear me out: you are going to draw a ton of these and they will be dead weight. So what to do? First work on your creature base! Thing in the Ice Flip(if you can afford it!), Laboratory Maniac, Disciple of the Ring, Voidmage Prodigy, Stonybrook Banneret, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Augury Owl, Omenspeaker, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Sidisi's Faithful, etc. That gives ya a much more stable creature base! Now to drop some of your well bad big drops. They might feel epic but they kinda suck sadly. You want plenty to use but many of your big, bad drops are kinda underwhelming, no? I could go on but think that's enough for one comment. If ya want more help then feel free to reply! Best of luck!

Personally, I am not a fan of Shivan Sand-Mage or Timebender. They are one time unless you are recurring them back to your hand somehow. I much rather have more fatties coming in than one fatty come in to be killed off.
Same goes for Omenspeaker, Mercurial Chemister, Augur of Bolas, and Archivist. There are better options, especially ones to suspend like Arcanis the Omnipotent, Mindwrack Liege or any of your massive creatures. The way I think of it, 2 mana for a chump? or 2 mana for a fatty? I think you have enough spells to slow their game you don't need your chumps. But, I also have a fairly budget meta, I don't know your opponents.
Ideally my game goes as:T2-3 Jhoira with protection. T4, pass turn. Before your turn, suspend Obliterate and something fierce. T5, play all your defenses to hold until obliterate happens and/or suspend more fatties. The key is survival. At this point suddenly everyone wants you dead.
Yes, the Timebender and Shivan Sand-Mage would be useful here to pop Obliterate out now, but you have other ways. Usually though, you need to protect your warp ins with your counters or just slowing them down. Frozen AEther, Winter Orb, etc the usual dick moves. Your walls are nice, but they may need to be cut, again just for their single usage.

Thanks for the feedback Killkow, but I can't use most of the cards you suggested, because it's for a format created here where I live (Brazil) that only allow decks that cost U$10 or under. By the way, these are realy good suggestions, but only one Keranos, God of Storms or two Thassa, God of the Sea already exceeds the budget, so they are a no go. I think the only suggestion I can follow is sideboard some Scouring Sands, as there are some goblin and elves deck where I play and that can deal with them. Oh, and the Mizzium Skins are already on the sideboard ;). I also think the Sigiled Skinks are terrible, maybe I will swap them for some Omenspeakers or Augury Owls (at least the owls can fly :P). I realy wish a could follow all of your suggestions, thanks again anyway.

Brandon, i have added you! :)
Guys,I have found some cards which might be useful. I do play some games against my friends, and i found Scry very helpful to control my deck.

Test Played some more tonight with many (but not all) of the swaps in place. So far, here's what I have (won't quite match the board since my deck is still in limbo while I think on this and get the cards) :
Not sure where / how to find room for something like Cloud of Faeries and Sphinx's Revelation. Being able to get some lands back on the combo end (since I usually run things as soon as I land Omniscience) would really allow me to exploit things like Deadeye Navigator and other activated abilities to maximize some effects.

He ran ok for me as just after he was printed, I was still playing good ol' Master of Waves. I threw 2 copies of him into the deck and the +1 was really good for me. Mainly because what the deck mostly did was Scry all the time using Thassa, God of the Sea, Omenspeaker and Sigiled Starfish and draw cards using Bident of Thassa and creatures like Vaporkin and Triton Shorestalker. So in that deck, he wasn't too bad; but I can easily say he's probably one of, if not the worst Jace we've ever seen (Jace Beleren I don't like much either, but in EDH he sees a lot of play).

JohnnyBaggins - The Scry N could be worked on some, I remember I thought of the scale for Omenspeaker but I forgot my original templating. But yes, the other creatures/abilities you mention are very tricky to evaluate using the MVT. Hence the subjectivity of the Ability Modifier.
Now I wouldn't include a card like Glint Hawk Idol or any non-creature card that can turn into a creature. That is because they can't, and shouldn't, be evaluated in the same manner. The Gods would work under the MVT, but they do have a larger drawback of the Devotion requirement to get them active.

As for your spells, you have way too much pump. Pump is usually used in hyper aggressive decks that just want to win fast -- evolve can't really do that. As such, I would for sure at least cur the Giant Growths. Although, also cutting vines or simic charm would be good, or at least a combination of them. As for your other creatures, i would likely cut Prophet of Kruphix, Polukranos, World Eater, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Omenspeaker, and lower the count of Master Biomancer by 1. Polukranos wouldn't be terrible to keep, but I feel there are much stronger finishers out there for evolve decks, such as Kalonian Hydra. Although Polukranos does have the added benefit of being able to act as removal if you have enough mana. Another 1 drop, in addition to Experiment One would be good. Cloudfin Raptor is usually the go-to after experiment.
