Sky Diamond Discussion

How about adding some mana rocks and some draw options to increase this deck's speed somewhat? In terms of mana rocks:
4 weeks ago
Add Cyclonic Rift, Enlightened Tutor, Rhystic Study, Mystical Tutor, Lim-Dul's Vault, Toxic Deluge, Chrome Mox, Chromatic Lantern, Sensei's Divining Top, Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Phyrexian Arena, Ad Nauseam, Muddle the Mixture, Misdirection, Spellskite, Diplomatic Immunity
I'd suggest you take out Catastrophe, Enchanted Evening, Opalescence, Umbra Mystic, Sovereigns of Lost Alara, Sky Diamond, Ruins of Trokair, Svyelunite Temple, Ravages of War, Prison Term, Phyresis, Pentad Prism, Marble Diamond, Inventors' Fair, Curator's Ward, Charcoal Diamond, Battle Mastery, Ancient Spring

Consider adding some of these: Dissipate, Capsize, Into the Roil/Expel from Orazca, Wizard's Retort, Swan Song, Rite of Replication, Unwind, Myriad Landscape, Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Disallow, Spell Swindle, Merchant Scroll, Muddle the Mixture, Aphetto Alchemist, Siren Stormtamer, and Gilded Lotus.
Here are the changes I would start with however, swap Syncopate for Disallow. Then Spell Pierce for Swan Song, Disappearing Act for Wizard's Retort, Divination for Dig Through Time or Preordain, swap Silent Departure for Into the Roil, Capsize, or Expel from Orazca, swap Dispel for Muddle the Mixture, Aether Spellbomb for Fellwar Stone or Sky Diamond (More mana rocks will help for what i'm suggesting below if you want to consider that route), and Tamiyo's Journal for Gilded Lotus (As you just don't have enough ways to make clue tokens, and it's kind of slow anyways. Instead focus on making lots of mana, tapping and untapping your creatures to draw lots of cards).
There is also of course Mind Over Matter and I have one myself, it is a very powerful card that pairs well with things like Temple Bell, Psychosis Crawler, even Azami, Lady of Scrolls. But admittedly it is quite expensive of course, I just thought I would make you aware of this card nonetheless. You listed the deck as budget, but I wasn't sure to what degree this means, whether that's no card over $10-$15 or what.
Dramatic Reversal is another one I highly recommend, it could be sweet if you pair this with an Isochron Scepter, and that's why cards like Long-Term Plans, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate you could more often have these. Then you can either make a ton of mana, or perhaps even infinite if you have a bunch of mana rocks out and or Paradox Engine. You could win then by casting stuff like Blue Sun's Zenith, Stroke of Genius, among other things.
Depending on how much your willing to spend other ideas include: Rhystic Study, Mind Over Matter as previously mentioned, Patron Wizard, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Laboratory Maniac maybe could be good here, Maze of Ith, Riptide Laboratory, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Tolaria West, Path of Ancestry, and Sensei's Divining Top (Just ordered one of these myself in fact last night, it is such a useful card that can be used in a lot of decks imo).
I know I suggested more to include than what I suggested to in turn remove, I can help more with this if you haven't solved it all yourself already once i'm done with exams in 3 days. In the meanwhile I recommend you visit the website edhrec.com wihich might be a lot of help to you if your not already familiar with it!

Basically never run anything over 3 CMC. Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo are single handedly the most overrated EDH ramp spells.
Here's what you should run:
- Coldsteel Heart
- Fellwar Stone
- Star Compass
- Sky Diamond
- Darksteel Ingot
- Voltaic Key (awesome to make your colored stuff great and goes nuts with Mana Vault and Basalt Monolith.
And if you have money:

You have so many counterspells and not enough gas. If you add in more mana rocks and draw, you will get to a counterspell when you need it. I think Jhoira should not be such a counter heavy deck. I am also not huge on the cards that only remove time counters, but I can totally see their usefulness at times. I just know that there will be a fair amount of times that they could be dead in hand. Mana Vault Sky Diamond Fire Diamond Everflowing Chalice Coalition Relic Mind Stone Thought Vessel are good options for ramp. Ponder Preordain Serum Visions Faithless Looting Blue Sun's Zenith and Pull from Tomorrow are good for draw.

I'd remove some of the vulnerable mana rocks Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, and MindStone all come to mind. Id replace them with Read the Bones, Frantic Search, and Burnished Hart all of which can help you hit those much needed lands. More spot removal is key, and maybe a better counter than Undermine. Noxious Gearhulk and Diluvian Primordial are both great adds, and removing the zombie tribal subtheme will open up a lot of options, and allow you to remove things like Door of Destinies, Maalfeld Twins, Undead Warchief etc

You might could add Arcane Melee although it might be overkill I think it might be worth it.
You might also like Sky Diamond over worn power stone possible.
Hope this helps
