If your plan is to win by making people draw and discard then more wheels should always be welcome. The main ones being Time Reversal, Winds of Change, and Molten Psyche. More expensive options are Time Spiral, Wheel of Fortune, and the all powerful Timetwister.

With all the wheel effects, Waste Not should be an autoinclude with all the value it can generate. With all the mana that you can get, Gemstone Array can help fix it for any color.

Other considerations for the deck are Anvil of Bogardan, Liliana's Caress, Bloodchief Ascension and Breathstealer's Crypt.

As for what to take out, Day's Undoing while being a wheel effect really helps your opponents out first unless you have Leyline of Anticipation out. Also, Wheel of Fate may be too slow. Viseling and Servant of Tymaret probably aren't needed. Convolute could be swapped straight with Counterspell.

Overall, i think you have a pretty solid deck though and have fun tormenting your opponents. ;D

That's what Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is for. And honestly, I ran it for a while... And found that while it is a great card, it's exiling whatever I discard somewhat mitigates the value of Time Spiral and completely ruins Mizzix's Mastery. Oh and like 99% of the time I deck myself it's because I played Mind Over Matter and Otherworld Atlas

If you can find an affordable Time Spiral it's another good card for hand resetting.

You also might try running some field wipes besides Cyclonic Rift. Leovold, Emissary of Trest is only a 3 drop and could be recast again for cheap. Consider running Damnation, Oblivion Stone, and alike.

You could also run Fabricate to look for the puzzle box, and I would drop either Plasm Capture or Overwhelming Denial for a Mana Leak. Condescend is a rather underrated counter spell card that could be fairly useful.

IAmTheWraith, these cards are excelent! I reeeeeally want to put Time Spiral in the deck, just don't know what to change, do you have any tip? I was thinking about taking Skyscribing out.

Timetwister is THE BEST "wheel" to use when playing with Nekusar, but it is too expensive, I can't afford it (the card costs more them my whole deck). :(

Temple of Deceit is too slow, cut it for an Island
Geier Reach should also be an Island, you don't ever want to spend to give your opponents hand crafting
Not a huge fan of Bojuka Bog, but its ok for utility.
What I'm getting at is, the more Islands you run the more powerful High Tide becomes. Casting Time Spiral with 1 or 2 High Tides active can be game winning, it can also provide you with the gas to do less efficient Doomsday piles that run protection.
You still need to add Ponder.

In a dedicated Doomsday deck like this, you might want to use Street Wraith. Although it does hit you in the face for 5 when you Ad Nauseum into it, you cant really interact with cycling as easily as you can another draw spell. Admittedly probably not worth running in a cEDH build, I just have love for that card.
Take out Void Shatter add Arcane Denial.
Mana Crypt is too good not to run.
Jet Medallion is only letting you cast 10 or so spells for cheaper, Sapphire Medallion is slightly more justifiable, but even so, I'd ax them both.
Retract is sweet, just saying.
Consider Memory Jar, obviously this would be a Timetwister if it wasn't $900.

I'm a big proponent of "Future Top" enabled by Helm of Awakening.
Future Sight & Sensei's Divining Top
Some really cool fun things happen when you cast Doomsday with Future Sight on board. Your pile might look like:
Lotus Petal
Mana Crypt
Laboratory Maniac
Lion's Eye Diamond
So, if you run Future Sight, you might as well run the other 2 pieces that let you draw your deck and generate massive storm count anyhow. I LOVE "Future Top".

Cards that I think are otherwise very cut worthy:
Riptide Laboratory
Thing in the Ice  Flip
Leyline of the Void
Wish you best of luck tweaking this deck, and hope you have fun with it most of all.

For Timetwister you could do Time Spiral or Day's Undoing.

For Imperial Seal we have Lim-Dul's Vault or Worldly Tutor.

Another good option that checks both boxes is Bring to Light
