Seriously though - I truly wish this deck would kick ass due to the fact that I have all the cards for it just lying around but I know that given my local meta only pain and frustration would await me if I built it...but kudos to you for giving it a red hot go!
A couple more suggestions - Psychosis Crawler for the crazy life draining ability...when combined with Thought Reflection things can get really deadly for your opponents, Sphinx's Revelation to straight up mill mono-color players out of the game and finally, Diviner's Wand so Niv can steal a win outta nowhere with some good old-fashioned Dragon beatdown :D

Okay so first Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle is pretty slow. Yeah he's a land at first, but you have to cast 5 spells while he's a land (which means you can't enchant him w/ auras).
Kefnet the Mindful isn't great, but I guess he's not outstandingly bad.
Masumaro, First to Live, comparable to Kefnet, is going to be restricted by the number of cards in your hand, and that's a max of 7. While a 14/14 is undeniably huge, it will probably draw hate and be removed very before you can enchant it.
Nezahal, Primal Tide is really just not good. I mean he give you no max hand size and he is recursive, kinda, but I don't think that's powerful enough to justify 7 mana.
Overbeing of Myth is a weaker Masumaro.
Prime Speaker Zegana requires you to have another large creature.
Psychosis Crawler will get you hated out of the game immediately.
Tishana, Voice of Thunder will draw you MAYBE 3 cards when it enters. It's only slightly better than Kefnet.
You have a lot of instants and sorceries. Too many counterspells, when your enchantments could deal with any permanents that get played.
There are a lot of cards at the higher end of your mana curve that are either not worth the mana cost or laughably not worth the mana cost. Also your draw synergies would be better devoted to their own deck (see my take on that idea Oreo Fluff). While this is a unique and interesting take on Estrid, it's slow and requires a steady draw engine to work, which requires a shitload of mana to work, which requires Estrid always being out to work, which requires, in the end, some degree of incompetence on your opponents' part. It's a great deck when left to its own devices all game, but that's just not how commander works.

So to start off, I would personally go Dimir and run Oona, Queen of the Fae as the commander, because faerie synergy. This would free a few slots for maybeboard cards to slot into. Green does not look all that useful in your deck, as you are not running much green ramp cards like Rampant Growth and
Otherwise, I would replace Thought Reflection with Bident of Thassa. In a blue aggro/tempo deck, the draw when combat cards are more valuable and generally cheaper, which makes them more valuable, than card-draw doublers. Otherwise, I would consider extra card-draw effects like Dictate of Kruphix and Howling Mine.
If you want to synergize with some of the faeries in the maybeboard, like Dreamspoiler Witches I would add in more counterspells and control cards like Cyclonic Rift. To take out, I would cut some vanilla creatures like Wasp Lancer and off-tribal cards like Weirding Shaman.
Finnally, you don't really run enough mana dorks or mana rocks to justify running the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo, and don't have a good infinite mana sink other than Oona, Queen of the Fae who isn't even your commander. Unless to dramatically change your deck, I would cut it.

Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower are both very good win conditions, with reservoir being the better one, and Thought Reflection is very expensive gas. Even if you don’t need another win condition, I would consider Alhammarret's Archive since it does the same effects for cheaper. Overall, what you need to do is decide if you need a wincon or gas.

Should I replace Thought Reflection in my The Immaculate Mizzix's Experiment deck with Aetherflux Reservoir or Sentinel Tower? I think both of them would be good in my deck, but I don't know what else to cut from my deck in order to add them both.
