Sphinx of the Final Word, though its expensive for modern. Pearl Lake Ancient.

Maybe too much creatures, get solid game enders like Sphinx of the Final Word and play it as your only creature.

All the enchantments are just bad. Diminish and Whisk Away out.

There are ton of options to add:

Condescend Good counterspell

Think Twice Card advantage

Engulf the Shore Goodboard wipe for Mono Blue

Disallow Solid counterspell

Jace, Architect of Thought Overall very good walker

Psychic Barrier Straightly better Essence Scatter

There are so much more that i'm not going to list everything but there are maybe the best budget options.

And to make deck more consistent don't play so much 1 and 2 ofs, just play 4 of all good cards

I'm not really an expert when it comes to sideboards, but Iv got a rough idea of what I want. I'm thinking something along the lines of:

2x Harsh Scrutiny - To be used against aggro decks and any deck that plays Carnage Tyrant.

3x Kefnet the Mindful - Kind of replacing Sphinx of the Final Word, being a control mirror breaker. Also good against midrange decks.

1x Yahenni's Expertise - I'm not sure about this, but I have found that it is better to have a another boardwipe against token decks, mostly Vampires these days.

2x Doomfall - Another answer to Carnage Tyrant, yet also has an discard effect, which might be useful against some decks I hope. xD

3x Negate - Replacing Dispel which was used against the control Mirror, yet also good against Vehicles and pretty much any deck that runs mostly non creature spells.

2x Sentinel Totem - Graveyard hate that I want to test. Only problem is that it takes away both graveyards, causing problems for The Scarab God.

Not sure about what to add to the last 2 slots. If u guys have some ideas, feel free to suggest!

Here are some suggestions: Talent of the Telepath lets you use the opponents removal (like if you need exile or enchantment removal), generate value, or it can be an emergency cultivate or something against a green player. Also its cheap. Memory Plunder is in a similar vein. Better when you need a specific spell, but it doesn't mill potential combo pieces, etc. Vandalblast is a great one sided artifact removal, and kess can cast it twice. Nightscape Familiar is a great cost reducer I don't see. Dack Fayden should be in your deck. At the minimun it's often ramp (can steal their mana rocks) or looting for what you need. At most it steals their combos. Toxic Deluge is one of the best board wipes in commander.Sire of Stagnation is great draw that makes opponents hesitant to play lands and can exile key cards. Sphinx of the Final Word this might only perform well in a certain meta, but worth considering. Imprisoned in the Moon You can't repeat this but its worth it. Shut down their commanders. Reliquary Tower Pretty self explanatory in edhDesolate Lighthouse is a great looting tool when you want itDemonic Consultation instant wins with Laboratory Maniac.

These next two are probably too expensive right now, but I am mentioning them because they are being reprinted in Iconic Masters which comes out in November so they're price will go down. Consecrated Sphinx great drawKokusho, the Evening Star usually kills all opponents with kicked Rite of Replication

DrukenReaps on Building EDH Simic

Simic is pretty good for throwing down giant X spells. I had a list I worked on for a bit but it was sultai so that I could use some of the really nasty X spells black offers. I would use Kruphix, God of Horizons so that you can just keep stacking up mana. Also it is hard to get rid of the gods... 10 or so spells like Blue Sun's Zenith and Metallurgic Summonings should be enough win conditions. The idea is viable, if using such effects to win you may want Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Sphinx of the Final Word, and similar things. Hydras wouldn't be out of place either with lots of mana.
