You've given a ton to think about, Valius! Much appreciated! A lot of what you mentioned makes sense. Initially, my goal was to build this deck around the $100 mark, so I didn't consider cards like Cyclonic Rift , Toxic Deluge , etc. But... things change! :)
Mind if I ask you a couple of more questions? When you were writing your 2 comments, I was in the process of adding 3 questions to my description above. You've already answered #2 pretty thoroughly. Mind taking a stab at questions 1 and 3 (I didn't forget about Bojuka Bog )? Thanks in advance!

Cards you could remove to make space for better synergistic ones are:
Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker
Sire of Stagnation
Dreamborn Muse (I go back and forth on this but I still feel it’s worth taking out unless self mill is a strategy for you)
All your enchantments except Fraying Sanity
Brainspoil ( Grisly Spectacle is better)
Karn's Temporal Sundering
If I was building this deck, that’s where I would start. Of course it’s your deck, and if anything is sentimental then by all means keep it in.

I've updated the deck by going Orzhov and adding a bunch of cheap white changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Avian Changeling , and Irregular Cohort . I've also included three copies of Brainspoil to tutor up Liliana's Contract . The deck is now much more consistent overall.

Why are you running Brainspoil ? It is the only 5CMC card in the deck so it can't tutor anything.
Also, I like the idea for Rats. I have a Korozda Guildmage Rats deck that is really fun. You might consider a couple more pieces of recursion or some card draw, as Rat decks have a really shaky early game and losing a couple early on can hinder you the rest of the game.

multimedia I do like the idea of adding more tutors and cutting down on some of my wincons (especially the ones that require going sideways). I've been looking into including the transmute cards as well, like Brainspoil and Dimir House Guard . The reasone why I didn't put Authority of the Consuls and Blind Obedience in is because of my meta. Most of my opponents don't play many creatures, and although tapping their artifacts sounds nice, that 1-turn stall doesn't seem worth it to me. With extort though, we'll see if it makes the cut. I am considering the aristocrat combo you mentioned. My only thought is why would I look for a combo, in order to look for a combo? For that reason, I'm not sure if I'll include Razaketh, the Foulblooded , but I'll playtest with it and see how I like it.

Wall of Shards + Tainted Remedy , or Exquisite Blood + Epicure of Blood + Brainspoil to help pull off the combo. Tree of Perdition + Transmutation if you order the mechanic in proper order, can one shot your opponent as things resolve on the stack. must be played properly though.

Exquisite Blood will give you a secondary win can using Vizkopa Guildmage secondary ability and comboing that to infinity. Dimir Infiltrator Muddle the Mixture Shred Memory Can help you tutor the guildmage. Brainspoil can help you tutor the enchant.

Interesting idea! Some things to consider:
You might also like these cards: Bag of Holding , Dimir Machinations (transmutes for necropotence), Tectonic Reformation , Street Wraith , Treasonous Ogre , Archfiend of Ifnir , Bone Miser , Alhammarret's Archive , Brainspoil (transmutes for alham's archive), Illusionist's Bracers , Mindmoil , Bolas's Citadel , Skirge Familiar , Shred Memory (for transmuting, especially for Shadow of the Grave! digging for Shadow seems paramount), archfiend of spite, curse of fool's wisdom, Gamble , Words of Waste , Geth's Grimoire , Waste Not , Burning Inquiry , Dark Deal , Reforge the Soul , Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , Runehorn Hellkite , Memory Jar , Uba Mask , Bedlam Reveler .
I'm sure you can make room for some of these by removing some of those extra Muck Drubbs and Tainted Pacts :P
