Cut Jin, Melek and Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. You generally need a good reason to cast creatures with a similar CMC as your commander, and these either don't provide enough of a reason or are simply too expensive (you could just draw 10 cards immediately instead of playing Jin and drawing a massive amount of hate). Both Deserts are subpar and are probably better off being another Mountain and Academy Ruins. Whispers of the Muse and Accelerate are, to be blunt, terrible and should go. For more red, mix in Teleportal, Bedlam Reveler, Nivix Guildmage and Young Pyromancer.

There is a little stack of cards in this deck that I would most certainly cut;
Also I'm not a fan of the Equipments and any of the creature-based cards in this deck, as the Izzet guild's strongest point is spells.So cut Teleportal, Assault Strobe, Psychotic Fury, Fury Charm, Curiosity, Pemmin's Aura, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head, Neko-Te, Lightning Greaves...
Also, these cards I don't think fit the deck very well.-Dark Depths.
-Grafdigger's Cage!!! You should NOT play this card. It blocks out Melek and isn't of much use.
The rest of the cutting you'll have to do in the burn package. Hope I helped, please check out my thopter deck:THOPTERS!!!!! .

Pretty cool deck! However, I'd advise against combat tricks like Distortion Strike or Brute Force. Those generally aren't worth it in commander as their impact just isn't big enough. I'd look into cards that buff all your creatures, like Flying Crane Technique, or overload spells, such as (a personal favorite) Teleportal. I'd also advise you to look up some other decks on tapped out to get ideas; commanders like Mizzix of the Izmagus make for potent Izzet spell-based commanders.
Also, you might want to invest in your manabase a bit. Commander 2016 had quite a few dual land reprints that made them rather affordable, and the shadowlands (Port Town) and battlelands (Prairie Stream) aren't that expensive either.
Also, I'm a bit confused about your inclusion of Divine Presence. Quite a few of your creatures are already at or above three power before prowess.
Finally, I'd like to add that not including Kiln Fiend is hardly justifiable. It's even somewhat modern playable, for Bolas' sake ;)

For sure. Best album ever made imo!
Thanks for the suggestions man. Mizzium Mortars looks like it could find a place in here. Teleportal looks good too although I am dropping the goblins. I really wanted him in here but after looking at my spells he won't effect most of them.
Nice to find another Nas/Magic fan out there!

Having a good card-draw set will help with both your mana base and filling your hand with cantrips and Storm cards.
I like this article a lot: http://www.mtgeezer.com/hidden-gems-16-blue-card-drawing-spells-part-one/
Aerial Responder will be a great choice as a double-strike target with your commander. Sphinx of the Final Word might be good, too. Ojutai Exemplars, Docent of Perfection Flip, Anax and Cymede, Mirrorwing Dragon, and Zada, Hedron Grinder are neat.
Were I you I would trim down the creatures but definitely keep a bunch of them if Storm-ing is your goal. You have made good choices with them thus far and it would be a shame to not use your commander's ability. I do, however, believe it is a sign of a deck's strength if it functions without its commander.
Curse of the Swine is just good for commander.
Some good cantrips (and cheap spells to be discounted with Goblin Electromancer and Jace's Sanctum) to get your storm count up: Ponder, Lightning Bolt, Shock, Slip Through Space, Disenchant, Retraction Helix, Safe Passage, Snap, Artful Dodge, Twinflame, Distortion Strike, Brainstorm, Vapor Snag, Unsummon, Preordain, Titan's Strength, Pyretic Ritual, Mighty Leap, Strength of Arms, Shadow Rift, Return to Dust, Ethereal Haze, Emerge Unscathed, Chaos Warp, Ajani's Presence, Pieces of the Puzzle, Pongify, Lightning Helix, Brute Force, Banishing Knack, Seething Anger, Spite of Mogis, Void Snare, Polymorphist's Jest, Teleportal
