Scry 2, then draw a card. (To 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.)

You should probably cut most if not all of your Divination effects in favor of stuff like Ponder Preordain Serum Visions and Gitaxian Probe .

Not sure what the role of Bloodmist Infiltrator is here. If you need a good sac outlet, Viscera Seer is probably the best one you'll get.

Mana Geode is strictly better than Manalith . Maybe consider running Darksteel Ingot instead. Flesh out your signet line and don't play lockets or cluestones. You'd be looking at Dimir Signet and Orzhov Signet .

Also DEFINITELY play Teysa Karlov .

Interesting deck idea, if you aren't on a budget or anything you might want to consider Imperial Seal and the OG Duals. Also you mention Necromancy in the description, but it isn't in the list. Also the average cantrips/card draw spells I would expect to see aren't here Ponder , Preordain , Gitaxian Probe , Street Wraith , Treasure Cruise , and Dig Through Time .

BTW, if you are one of those players who loves to build decks that just "somehow" turn the game into archenemy and have a ton of synergy and back up plans in them, like this, I would highly recommend you try building Kruphix, God of Horizons . I'm one of these players that loves decks like these and I've gotta say this card looks so chill the first time you see it, but every time I go to my LGS to play EDH everyone just looks at each other and says: Player to my left: "Not Kruphix... We need to kill John first." Next player: "We already know that." Player of my right: " Goblin Guide for turn. Go to combat, John I'll attack you."

Hollowdude711 on Budget Mizzix Storm [~$100 Competitive EDH]

This deck looks awesome to play for such a good budget! I’m planning on building this and giving it a spin, but I was wondering what you would cut for Preordain , Serum Visions , and Gamble since those are some cards I already own? I also have 8~9 lands that can tap for red or blue mana, so at that point should I try to run Fire Diamond for more on color artifact ramp? Last question; When upgrading the deck in the future for say, a Flusterstorm or Cyclonic Rift , do you do so by removing the worst counter or bounce spell respectively, or by simply removing the worst card in the 99?

you don't even need isochron scepter your commander does that for you. the scepter combo works with your commander. You also should take out lands and pt in mana seem to have an extreme lack of them Fellwar Stone Prismatic Lens are ones to consider...

Also remove Keening Stone and put in Codex Shredder it gives you a bit more flexibility and it still kills people.

You also need to play more cantrips like Preordain Serum Visions

How about Dovin's Veto as a straight upgrade from Mana Leak ?

Also have you considered adding Ponder / Preordain for unconditional card draw and filtering?

As you are playing blue, I think there are better options than Cremate . I love the card, but, frankly, Serum Visions , Opt , Ponder , and Preordain are all better options. I get that Cremate exiles a card from a graveyard and is an instant, but I don't think that's as powerful as scrying when you want to dig through your deck and find the threats. I also get that you want it for Ruin Processor , but I think your other ingest cards will do their job and you'll want more powerful draw spells.

Cool deck!

I would also be wary of land destruction in this deck. Usually decks that destroy lands have a way to break symmetry, that is finding a way to make everyone but you hurt from land destruction. Things like Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Crucible of Worlds help to mitigate this Mass effect. I would substitute things like Armageddon for like a Swords to Plowshares or a boardwipe for non-creature permanents, such as Tidal Wave . You've got a lot of Orzhov going on here, which is great, but you're also running blue, an awesome color for removal. Embrace the blue side and add some of the best cantrips in the world like Ponder or Brainstorm , Preordain , Serum Visions , or perhaps my all-time favorite Impulse . Depends if you want to go more control-focused or permanent-based, but you could definitely afford to add in blue. If you want to stick to Orzhov, Kambal is a great incremental lifegain commander.

Hope this helped
