Some cards you may want to consider.

I hope some of these suggestions help.

Well Dark Ritual seems kind of weak. I've seen a lot of mono black decks that can't make room for that card in this format and most of your deck is blue. You really want to focus on long term value in most cases.

Elixir of Immortality is also kind of weak in this deck. With a 100 card deck you're almost never going to deck out naturally. It just isn't going to happen. Even if you come up against a mill deck, which are rare, the good ones will usually mill you out in one turn with a combo. Even if they don't, they could end up milling the Elixir, and the five life isn't enough to make up for that either.

Ornithopter is also not enough value.

Magewright's Stone doesn't have enough targets and your commander's ability costs too much to make much use of it.

I also don't know about Crypt Ghast in this deck. He is only really good if you get your Urborg out and even then he only creates extra black mana which is far less useful than blue. Perhaps you could add in a Expedition Map to insure you get some value from him. You could also use something like Trinket Mage to insure you get the map or failing that, Sol Ring.

Good one from what I can see. I would love to play the deck you already have assembled. I have always liked Trinket Mage to find Walking Ballista, Tormod’s Crypt, or Sol Ring. Also you could target other cards like Hangarback Walker, Skullclamp, Sensei's Divining Top, or even artifact lands like Seat of the Synod. Some tutors I wouldn’t want to miss out on would be Final Parting and Diabolic Intent. Finally, if you go more towards the Reanimator theme, creatures that rock my socks off every time are Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Phyrexian Delver. The instants and sorceries in this theme I would consider are Dread Return and Victimize. That’s about it, I guess. Hope my suggestions help you find your way. Cheers and good luck!

Dual Shot and mainboard Electrickery are conditionally good but often bad. MBC seems really big online, now, and it's pretty dead against them. With eleven main-deck removal spells and a little more help post-board, I think the split is about as good as it's getting, in that regard.

The trilands would be useful, but also don't power up Skred. Hitting a Gurmag Angler at instant speed always feels nice. Between all the cantrips and Trinket Mage, I almost always find fixing to be passable; most games go as such that you really only need one source of the nonblue colors, which is much more forgiving.

I think the SB can be adjusted. Haven't seen Inside Out combo in ages. More sweepers or Pyroblasts might be in order. In general, I have favorable win percentages outside of Delver and stompy, but I'm not sure how much more we can realistically do to prepare for those matchups.

Thank you for the comment!

ForsakenxEDHx, true on the non-GY interaction. Was thinking Trophy Mage, as opposed to Trinket Mage, can get anything at 3CMC or less, which lets you get your Isochron Scepter, any of your mana rocks, or pretty much any of your toolbox artifact creatures.

Voyager Staff is amazing. Tutorable with Trinket Mage. Makes SwampThang almost impossible to keep off the table, even against THE Cyclonic Rift.

Running Trinket Mage with Seat of the Synod, Tree of Tales and Vault of Whispers can supply additional mana fixing.

Thanks so much for your help 5c0r910n and pillowmint:)

I have made the following cuts:

Boreas Charger, Trinket Mage, Yennet, Cryptic Sovereign, Treasure Hunt, and Lightform

To add:

Mulldrifter, Ashen Rider, Infinite Reflection, Trinket Mage, Lavinia of the Tenth, and Reveillark

These are just preliminary cuts and adds. I see a lot more cards I want to put in the deck from your suggestions, but I am not sure what cards to cut for at least some of the following:

Dire Undercurrents, Cathars' Crusade, Knight-Captain of Eos, Rite of Replication, Jace's Mindseeker, and Pull from the Deep

Day of dragons looks awesome do you think Synthetic Destiny would be a worthy include as well?

I don't have a specific outlet for the Peregrine Drake combo but both cards are super powerful in blink and getting infinte mana is always helpful:) Do you think I should work some outlets in for the possibilty of comboing off or is it not worth it?

Thanks again for all your help:)
