Here is the list of potential upgrades for the deck although I don't know what to take out for them:

I figured I needed more ramp, because lets face it, you can never have too much ramp. So, I removed a few spells that were good, but not overly important towards the deck and added more signets. Now the deck has all 6 signets that are possible for these colors.

I play a Mikaeus-deck myself and I really like your work. But I think your mana-curve is not really that optimal. I play many ramp cards and only combo-pieces, which allows to make a turn 4 or turn 5 kill, nearly every time. Please also be aware, that Mikaeus gives all your creatures +1/+1, so things like Mindless Automaton don't work, even if you kill them manually, it's stuck with only one +1-counter. If you want to make your deck more consistent and more deadly, take out all cards that don't kill your opponents IMMEDIATELY with Mikaeus. Cards like: Abhorrent Overlord or Dusk Urchins all need preparation time, so think about cutting them. Also cards like Liliana of the Veil don't do anything for your combo in this deck and are better off in a good modern deck (Oh, I wish I had one myself :( ). Here are some cards that I highly recommend to you, in order to combo off faster, and better:
Fume Spitter (I love him but only in my starting hand)
Diabolic Servitude (maybe, but recommend)
Infernal Darkness (maybe, but always worth it)
Sidisi, Undead Vizier (maybe...)
Dread Return (maybe...)
Pentavus (The only 7-drop allowed in this deck)
Grinding Station (you have many artifact creatures then...)
You may ask: "And what shall I cut?"Every Planeswalker, they do nothing for you in this deck. Every damn card that costs 5 mana or more (Only Exceptions are Pentavus and Triskelion) . (Yes, you can also cut Sidisi, Undead Vizier, if you have enough tutors). And everything, that doesn't combo with Mikaeus in a way that doesn't kill all your opponents immediately. Your goal is to win the game as soon as Mikaeus hits the battlefield. Most of the time the disruption can't do anything, because you can combo off in response to that. And to make it as fast as possible, add all mana artifacts known to mankind to your deck. Thran Dynamo, Jet Medallion and so on, and so on. You don't need any removal or any Temporal Extortion or Imp's Mischief and stuff like that. Aim for a turn 4 kill and cut everything that doesn't support your idea. There will be no threats on turn 4 or five that need you to have any special removal.
Hope this helps out.
If you want, I can post a link to my Mikaeus deck. I don't like to do advertisement for my decks, so I do it, if you want to see my idea of a perfect deck.

I like your deck a lot. It seems fun for you, not for other people though lol.A couple suggestions, Deepglow Skate and Tezzeret's Gambit would both be really good in this deck. Your mana dorks don't seem to synergize with your deck. I would consider something like Coalition Relic and Gyre Sage in order to maximize the advantage Atraxa gives. Also an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth should definitely be in your deck if you are trying to run cards like Phyrexian Arena and Temporal Extortion. You could probably include somePropaganda effects too.
