Beacon Bolt deals damage to target creature equal to the total number of instant and sorcery cards you own in exile and in your graveyard.
Jump-start (You may cst this card from your graveyard by discarding a card in addition to paying its other costs. Then exile this card.)

To start, it combos with one of my favorite cards from last year's set, Reality Scramble , IDK how good that is, but it'd be a blast.
For real value, I think the deck looks to be a graveyard value control deck. Maybe a bit of prison, considering how you can become 'immortal' by enchanting Sevinne, the Chronoclasm with a Pariah , or equipping it with a Pariah's Shield .
Swiftfoot Boots , Champion's Helm , etc. to protect it, then abuse it's ability to combo with Flashback, like Deep Analysis , jumpstart like Chemister's Insight , retrace like Oona's Grace , and aftermath like Refuse / Cooperate
Total, there are a lot of good spells to abuse with it:
That's all I can think of right now, if I remember any more sweet cards with Sevinne, I'll tell you!

FastIsFaster I made some changes, what do you think?

FastIsFaster I don't feel that Risk Factor makes that big of an impact due to the deck's inability to close out games quickly unless you somehow manage to pile up the burn spells. Most opponent's will just take the 4 damage and not bat an eye at it.
I have been pondering a bit about Invade the City . I like the card, maybe a 2 of? My only issue is that Beacon Bolt takes care of those threats that hit the board that are just out of range of killing without doubling up spells, essentially "2 for 1-ing" myself. Do you seem to be coming across issues where you are in need of a removal spell that deals more than 4 damage?
Are you playing any Beacon Bolt s in the sideboard?

Why no Risk Factor ? I have a similar build, and I've found that Risk Factor and be one of the most devastating reveals when you have God-Eternal Kefnet out. I would also suggest trying Invade the City instead of Beacon Bolt as it doesn't require your opponent to have any board state ( Beacon Bolt is dead against control almost 100% of the time, whereas Invade the City can at least get you a large body late in the gave if control taps out for one of their big cards

Giving a look at Jump-Start again. I'm disappointed how little of it is really usable. I really wanted this to be an interesting discard blend, but it seems to just run into mechanical malarkey. I will find a way though...and it might be Maximize Velocity .
Beacon Bolt on inspection, also seems a lot better now then when I first looked at it.

Looking at your commander I immediately want to do something with the new Guilds of Ravnica cards that count instant and sorceries in exile.
In the actually helpful range, it sounds like you're doing some tournament play, which usually means you get a sideboard if you want one. Have you thought about Burning Wish , Cunning Wish etc. To give you some more space to play with?

I like this deck a lot, especially for how budget-friendly it is--that makes me really happy :D
I have always wanted to like Stormchaser Mage but have found kind of limited uses for him in Commander. I might consider Bloodwater Entity and trade Stormchaser Mage 's haste for the recursion of Bloodwater Entity , although there is the drawback of taking sorceries/instants out of your graveyard and not even putting them directly into your hand (unless you have Tome of the Guildpact out). I might also take out Gorgon Flail to put in another gold card to give Tome of the Guildpact more mileage and to trigger the commander more. Maybe I'd put in something like Essence Backlash or Ionize for better control, though I don't like how expensive Essence Backlash is in terms of mana. (the addition of an instant rather than an artifact also makes Beacon Bolt and Enigma Drake go farther, and if your counterspell gets counterspelled, you can Expansion it to counter the counter and make more triggers happen...)
These are my thoughts, but well done nonetheless, I love this deck.
