Pseudo-ception Grind value and beat people to death with a 6/6 commander, 7/7 Nez and 8/8 Flample Raz.
Since the addition of Dance of Many the other combo pieces have become much more resilient(as it can replace either one), so you could consider swapping one of Animate Dead/Necromancy for either Riftsweeper or some other backup win like Smokestack, Second Chance or even Possessed Portal

Checked the actual card rulings on gatherer, the ability will only trigger if you have less than 5 life at hte beginning of your upkeep. You're correct there. However you can still just activate Unspeakable Symbol at the same time you would be flashing in Processor. The benefit here is that you don't need an aditional card to enable instant speed plays. That and the fact that Zur himself can tutor symbol, compared to both Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation, both of which you still need to draw into/tutor in addition to the Phyrexian Processor. The more cards you have to find, the harder your work is cut out for you to make the combo work.

Also, I'm surprised that you're running neither Demonic Tutor nor Lim-Dul's Vault as both of these are amazing tutors.

Also, Sun Titan seems to fit here well as he can also combo with Second Chance and provides good recursion in the deck in general.

The issue with Phyrexian Processor is that you have to paythe life as it enters, meaning that you go an entire round with really low life and hope not to die. The good thing about something like Unspeakable Symbol is that you can activate it in response to Second Chance's ability and pay the life in your upkeep.

Joker207755- I used to have Dovin Baan in an earlier version of this deck. I may try and add him back in over Second Chance. Thanks for the suggestion!

rshistorysmuf Thanks! I can’t believe I didn’t think about Paradox Engine

I did consider Demonic Tutor but I decided to go for other tutors that drain the life total to get you closer to the 5 life for the combo to go off.

Copy Enchantment could be good, there is already Estrid's Invocation which does a similar thing, however once the loop gets going you only need Second Chance and you can have as many turns in a row as you want!

Thanks for the suggestions:)

To be fair though, once you get Underrealm Lich and Doom Whisperer, it should be a lot easier to pull off the Second Chance infinite by paying nearly all your life right before your turn begins.

You have any thoughts on running Second Chance? it would probably take a little work to fit it in the deck but infinite turns is pretty dope.

What about runningSecond Chance as a way to take infinite turns?
