I think you should try out either Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Both tend to control the board until they can win with either Curiosity or Ophidian Eye . OG Niv is easier on a budget mana base, but paying more for new miv might be preferable for you if you're okay not turbo'ing him out and playing a slower game. Mizzix of the Izmagnus is also very combo-y if you're into Izzet. If you want to go Temur, Animar, Soul of Elements is typically build as a combo deck using Ancestral Statue to go infinite, and the popular Animorphs build is very budget friendly and lends itself well to the Pickles Lock combo of Brine Elemental + Vesuvan Shapeshifter . The Gates deck is a control deck that wins with your favorite one-card combo, Scapeshift . It's a one-trick pony, but if you're into it, I would build it with Child of Alara at the helm. Riku of Two Reflections might be for you if you just want all the value until you can find whatever wincon you like. Finally, if it's the rampy, storm bit you like about Nic Fit and Scapeshift, I love my Tatyova, Benthic Druid druid tribal deck. Chaining land ramp and drawing cards feels very stormy, even more so when going off with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , Guardian Project , or Beast Whisperer with Seton, Krosan Protector , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Stone-Seeder Hierophant , or Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip.

Nice deck, but since you already run Curiosity , how do you feel about Ophidian Eye , Tandem Lookout , and Drift of Phantasms to fetch them out?

Finally! A deck that uses Precognition Field. Have you considered Ophidian Eye, Tandem Lookout, or Curiosity? Also you have Dizzy Spell, Muddle the Mixture, and Drift of Phantasms to find them. They go infinite with your commander.

try Ophidian Eye for a similar effect like Curiosity

You thought about using Pemmin's Aura before as another way to protect Geist as well as give it evasion and pseudo vigilance? An all-star card that I use in my Tuvasa deck. Also Curiosity and Ophidian Eye are decent cards that can draw you cards and with Sun Titan it can give you recursion value as well. I feel you can cut Open the Vaults for Winds of Rath.

Additional removal spells that are annoying to deal with is Darksteel Mutation as well as Imprisoned in the Moon. Hope that helps!

Actually, there is a deck that I alone am a proponent of. I have yet to see another player in all of my years of EDH, looking online, IRL, etc for this commander another user of it:

Lu Xun, Scholar General

This commander is simple, a powerful mono-blue commander that while being considered low-tier, can be a powerful unblockable voltron draw-engine, a normal draw engine, or something to attach non-voltron equipment onto.

Ever seen a player be blown out by a few damage? Sword of Feast and Famine making them discard a card, Sigil of Sleep bouncing their biggie into their hand, Sword of Body and Mind milling them ten, and Quietus Spike doesn't help matters on their end ;)

It isn't the best commander, no, however it brings a mono-blue aggro commander onto the field, and can play a great midgame and lategame need be. Like drawing cards? It has you covered, and with extra turn spells for more damage, stacking Tandem Lookout, Sword of Fire and Ice, Fireshrieker and Ophidian Eye or Curiosity, you are drawing some 8 cards a turn, probably drawing another extra turn spell in the process. Sounds like Narset, Enlightened Master some of the time!

Don't worry about the big aggro problems of not being able to deal with threats, you often don't need to tap out, holding up mana for a Swan Song, Counterspell or Into the Roil, sometimes even the overloaded Cyclonic Rift, while still progressing your board by dropping a one or two mana enchantment onto Lu Xun.

See my following three lists for budget reasons:
