So I’ve been trying this deck out a bit and have had a positive record with it. The only changes I’ve made are: go down 2 spreading seas to make room for 2 cryptic. I also took out a repeal for another land, the commands being 4 mana. I’ve also been thinking about trying 1-2 Metallurgic Summons and a Search for Azcanta Flip. The last thing I’ve thought about is Sleight of Hand . Can you give me your opinions on these cards?

A few minor changes I can suggest: Instead of Winds of Rebuke , I would rather play Echoing Truth . I realize that it can start your combo, but you have so many activators anyway that it likely will never matter. Echoing Truth has several upsides, being able to very efficiently answer Lingering Souls and Empty the Warrens as well as just answering something like a Rest in Peace as suggested earlier.
I'm not sure if this is a budget deck or not, but historically, decks that are a blue/x 2-card combo decks like being a control deck until they assemble their combo and win, prime example being Splinter Twin. I think Sword Combo did around the same thing. For this reason I like playing 4 copies of Cryptic Command if possible. If this is a budget, it's totally understandable why you wouldn't include this.
As someone pointed out earlier, Bloodchief Ascension was part of the combo and would be interesting, however it would be hard to activate. But on interesting implication this has is if you ran Search for Azcanta Flip with Ascension and Mindcrank as your combo, you could run a control shell as stated before, and then search for more answers or hunt out your combo pieces. I think if you turned this deck into a Grixis deck, it would be very effective at killing your opponent with the combo, as you can activate Ascension with Lightning Bolt or Kolaghan's Command .
Overall, the combo is really cool and it will be really fun if you bring this to an event an see how it goes!

Why no Ral, Izzet Viceroy? You have 24 Instants/Sorceries, so I believe the Ultimate would be effective, and the +1 to smooth out your draws would be great! Also, I suggest Search for Azcanta Flip for the smoothing Of draws as well. Otherwise, +1!

I think U/W operates just fine with 24 lands. You have enough sources of draw that the 25th land isn't needed.

Hi Zakkaery. Fraying Sanity would work very well with the deck, and I might replace Traumatize for it. Visions of Beyond probably will become a must because this deck has problems drawing, and Search for Azcanta Flip would help a lot too, even though it is expensive.
All this recomendations are very nice, but maybe the creature aggro side of the deck should be reworked to a full mill deck to make the recommended cards efficient.

Deck looks great for the budget and since a lot of your spells contain blue I think Drowned Secrets might be a good choice, that and Fraying Sanity are a good combo together to mill them out faster. As for non budget recommendations I would say, Archive Trap and Mesmeric Orb for more mill.Visions of Beyond and Search for Azcanta Flip for card advantage.
