Looking for a second opinion on two cards for my Mizzix deck

I just saw Muddle the Mixture and it looked like it would be good in my The Immaculate Mizzix's Experiment, but the only thing I could see that I could potentially cut is Spell Burst . So, what do you guys think Spell Burst or Muddle the Mixture?

I also just cut Thought Vessel for Helm of Awakening , what do you guys think of this cut?

I like spell burst, as it has buy back. Also I don't like helm of awakening as it helps the opponents also.

I like middle the mixture, as it can grab answers when needed, if the deck is built for it.

I like thought vessel, as it gives you no Max hand size.

Just my thoughts on the cards individually, but prob not much help.

Just my opinion, but I'd recommend against both moves.

Spell Burst > Muddle. It's so much more flexible. Just as a threat it's great -- opponents know you have an answer in your hand, can probably match any CMC value for X (due to Miz making the spell cheaper), and you'll have it back in your hand after you cast it! So good. Muddle is a one-time counter or a one-time tutor. Less good.

You absolutely do not want Helm of Awakening in this deck. Your main advantage is making your spells cheaper - if you make their spells cheaper too, you're losing advantage. If anything, Miz wants Sphere of Resistance effects to exaggerate her advantage.
