Take into Custody Discussion

I went 3-1 at my prerelease with a sweet grixis control deck. I had 10 removal spells, not counting the Fireforger's Puzzleknot, 2x Take into Custody, Fourth Bridge Prowler, Dark Intimations, Cruel Finality, ad Leave in the Dust in the sideboard. Foil promo Gonti's Aether Heart.
1x Die Young
By far the best card in this deck is Multiform Wonder. When combined with any other energy producing card, like Gonti's Aether Heart, Aethertide Whale, or even Mechanized Production on it, it's an evasive 10-point life swing each turn.
I also had the most epic win ever. I was at 3 life, then played Mechanized Production on my Pacification Array, which let me tap out his board each turn and i got up to 8 Pacification Arrays once I was at 1 life.

This looks amazing, might try put together a non-budget version and see what I can come up with.
To your list though I'd definitely drop the Aether Theorist for Anticipate. Its digs deeper and is much faster than theorist. Also it triggers Trail of Evidence. Glimmer of Genius is another dig option as well.
Jace's Scrutiny and Press for Answers I'm not sold on. I get why they are there but they feel way too weak. Take into Custody is much better than both of them. I'd swap the Jace's for Take Into Custody at the least.
Finally you might want to have another Mechanized Production target in the deck since it doesn't need to be attached to the artifact you want 8 copies of. An obvious choice is Torrential Gearhulk but that may be outside of your price range considering its been labelled budget. Maybe Dynavolt Tower? It could get out of hand absurdly quickly when you have 3-4 Towers out and are generating enough energy to bolt off of every instant/sorcery cast. The issue here of course is you start diluting the rest of the deck to fit the towers.
