Mystical Tutor and Personal Tutor can help search for Approach of the Second Sun to cast it twice in 3 turns.

Smokethulhu Yeah, that's sort of what happens when comparing mono-colored decks with the same general.

xSKINCOLLECTORx I tried to make the list not only as competitive as my budget would allow, but also with the least amount of dead cards throughout the deck. Personal Tutor doesn't really have anything that's worth tutoring. Capsize is not a practical card to run outside of an infinite mana combo. Tolaria West seems like a cool land; however, searching for 0 drops at sorcery speed, not to mention trying to keep the Island count relevant for High Tide. Reality Shift seems like a cool card; however, I am aiming for the most efficient answers for mana efficiency. The only deterrant for Glen Elendra Archmage is the cmc, as I am trying to keep the overall cmc of the list low (as is with most competitive EDH lists). Despite this, I do thank you for your suggestions!

Omen is better. Soothsaying is better. Flash of Insight is mostly better.

Contingency Plan and Taigam's Scheming are better.

More expensive options are Foresee and Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar, both of which let you control your draw but also replace themselves.

Improving draw quality isn't a factor in EDH because it's a singleton format, so your draws will be mostly random anyway.

Personal Tutor and Mystical Tutor also give you better consistency, but they actually get what you want rather than just looking.

Looks fun! I love Maelstrom Wanderer!

If you feel like putting some money into the deck; Temporal Manipulation could replace Part the Waterveil, Scroll Rack can dump stuff from your hand onto the top of your deck in prep for Maelstrom Wanderer, Personal Tutor and Sylvan Tutor will help with consistency, etc

If you want more infinite turns: Progenitor Mimic with Eternal Witness and Time Warp does the trick. Cascading into the mimic might be interesting lol. Also Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall can act as Eternal Witness #2+3.

Idk if that's the direction you want to take it, but I figured I'd mention it.

Temur Sabertooth can also give you extra Maelstrom Wanderer and etb triggers

+1 from me! Please check out a few of my decks when you get a chance! ( LINK) ( LINK)

What do you want this deck to do? You seem to have too many different ideas going on in this deck. People might be able to give you better advice if you had a clearer vision of what you want this deck to accomplish and how you want to get there.

Having said that, I can already see some ways to make this better. Let's start by looking at the changes that seem most obvious to me. Let me start with bringing up the idea that card draw is always better than tutoring. If I'm drawing 2 or 3 cards a turn, then I have more card advantage than doing a 1-for-1 trade of a tutor for something else. Look at replacing some of the tutor cards: Mystical Tutor, Muddle the Mixture, Intuition, Long-Term Plans, Personal Tutor, Merchant Scroll. Consider replacing half of those tutors with card draw engines. Maybe Arcanis the Omnipotent?

Drop the Treasure Mage, the only target you have in the mainboard is the Ward of Bones. Use Trinket Mage instead. AEther Barrier, Counterbalance, War's Toll don't really seem to help with much of any strategy in this deck. You should consider addming more creatures to make the Sneak Attack more effecitve. The Blood Moon is a special case. It hurts you as much or possible more than it hurts your opponents. But the good news is that we can take adavantage of that easily. Add a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Consider adding an Archaeomancer and/or Izzet Chronarch to reuse the instants and sorceries.

Also, look at cutting Eternal Dominion. I think that card just hurts you too much. Look at the interaction of these 2 rules:
Epic (For the rest of the game, you can't cast spells. At the beginning of each of your upkeeps, copy this spell except for its epic ability. You may choose a new target for the copy.)
Suspend (At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter from that card. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost. If it's a creature, it has haste.)
The Epic ability would prevent you from casting the suspended cards as well as anything in your hand or that you might draw for the rest of the game. Not good.

As for your maybe board, don't use Paradox Haze. I know why you considered it, but I'm pretty sure it will end up biting you more often than helping. Instead of Reminisce look at Elixir of Immortality. You can search it up with the Trinket Mage and you get 5 life out if it. I pretty much auto-include one in every Commander deck I build. I've never regretted play one.
Let me know what you think of these suggestions and maybe we can continue the discussion and make the deck more fun for you to play. As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget. Feel free to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think.
