The only rotating card I see here is Opt, and the best replacement is Anticipate

Cam_M Thank you for the tip on Anticipate ! I have the Tribute Mage in the the deck to get out Pili-Pala , which generates infinite mana with Grand Architect

I have a parun deck myself. I'd keep in mind that cards like Anticipate don't coun't as "drawing a card", because it says "put it in your hand" So niv wont trigger twice, only once for the instant. But it's still a decent card.

I'd take out the Tribute Mage . Doesn't really do much for your deck, only gets you the mind stone.

You're at 57 cards main deck so far. I recommend adding 3-4 Mission Briefing or Snapcaster Mage (Depending on budget).

I'd replace Dissolve with either 2 more Leaks, or something like Remand or Logic Knot .

The Gut Shot and Winterflame are better off as 2 Electrolyze

Anticipate should be Path to Exile as there are some creatures in Modern that your burn won't kill.

Right off the bat, I think you should run Preordain . The card is very powerful, and I see it in your 'Maybeboard.' Second, I saw you replaced Anticipate with Sensei's Divining Top . This is a good idea, but if you're looking for more cantrip effects, Impulse is a strictly better Anticipate . Furthermore, looking at your deck's curve, you might want to consider running Counterbalance in conjunction with top -- I have had good results with that combo, particularly if running Zendikar and Onslaught fetches to clear the top. Azami's draw ability would do just as well though.

I don't think Halimar Depths is a very good card. Sage of Epityr is a one-drop wizard who does the same thing (slightly better, actually) and doubles as card-advantage later in the game. Siren Stormtamer is another good utility one-drop wizard, as is Sidisi's Faithful . (Note that Sidisi's Faithful can be tapped to draw a card while the exploit trigger is on the stack, and you can still have it exploit itself.) Generally any low-cost wizard that has a relevant ability is a good idea. Furthermore, cards like Intruder Alarm and Paradox Engine are your friend, as they make spells into spells plus draw 4 or 5.

Pairing Azami with Mind Over Matter then becomes an auto-win in conjunction with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . For the record, Laboratory Maniac is a wizard, but I like your choice of Jace better. I think the Lab Man/Jace combos are likely a better way to win than wizard aggro.

Riptide Laboratory is a good way to protect your general.

Sapphire Medallion , which I see is also in the 'Maybeboard,' is also a good card. Mono-blue has little ramp, so any two-drop ramp is good. Same goes for Sky Diamond , Baral, Chief of Compliance and Coldsteel Heart . With more rocks, things like Aphetto Alchemist also get better (I strongly recommend playing him).

I do not recommend Portent . Half the time I use cantrips, I am using them to find a land or some other card I want to use immediately. The Ice Age slowtrips just don't fulfill that need.

Finally, I am not sure I think Arcane Lighthouse or Detection Tower are very good. It may be a meta-call, but I feel that Azami costing triple-blue means you want to run as few colorless lands as possible.

All the best and good luck! Azami was one of my pet decks when I used to play her.

Use Radical Idea over Anticipate because Jump Start and it will trigger Psychic Corrosion where as Anticipate does not.
Check out Predatory Mill for more good ideas.
