I'm looking for cards that allow me to put cards from my hand or my graveyard onto the top of my library, similarly to how Brainstorm works.
The color of the deck is Izzet. I'm looking to abuse Melek, Izzet Paragon .
Does anybody know of good cards that can fit? Yes obviously Scry will definitely help such as with Opt , but what I really need is the ability to put cards back on top of my library so that I can abuse Melek some more.

I think some better artifact ramp would do you good. It will speed up your deck significantly. Things like Izzet Signet Dimir Signet Rakdos Signet Chromatic Lantern . You could easily drop to 33 lands with 10 solid mana rocks.

In my experience, running 36 lands in an EDH deck is too much. I usually top out around 32 or 33. If you run something like Ancient Tomb , which is at a relatively low price nowadays, you should be able to do more with less. Cutting a few lands would also give you room for the Leyline of Anticipation and Vedalken Orrery .
I see you’re running Ponder and Brainstorm ; have you considered running Preordain ? It’s another turn 1 play that digs for what you need. Also, pairing Brainstorm with shuffle effects makes it around 4x as powerful... ideally, you’d do this with the Onslaught and Zedikar fetches, but these can run a cost about as high as a semi-used kidney. If you want to stay on a reasonable budget, Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse also work. Slow fetches, like Rocky Tar Pit , are also good.
I’ve had a good deal of success with draw-sevens in EDH, especially in conjunction with Narset, Parter of Veils . Casting Windfall with her out is a good way to build tremendous card advantage; throwing in Wheel of Fortune and Time Spiral may also prove fruitful, if you have $200 lying around.
If you craft your mana-base carefully, you can run some blue-moon types stax pieces to keep your more color-greedy opponents for slaughtering you while you wait for your guys to come off suspend. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon both come to mind, though Ruination is another favorite of mine.
Good luck with deck building man... I gotta go to work.

It depends on what you're trying to achieve. I've taken most of the tutors out ( Planar Portal and Planar Bridge fit the theme), and am trying to eliminate any infinite combos. Some cards like Lux Cannon are in for flavor, since every mad scientist needs a ray gun...
The five cards in my maybe board will be replacing Brainstorm , Basilisk Collar , Rings of Brighthearth , Clock of Omens , and Unsubstantiate . Endbringer is also too mana intensive and Urza needs a mount, so Nezahal, Primal Tide will replace it. Hope that helps.

Player A, for as long as they're the active player, will always receive priority after a spell or ability resolves, per the rule you quoted.
The only time someone other than the active player receives priority is immediately after casting a spell or activating an ability (then the player who cast the spell or activated the ability has priority).
So when Player C casts Brainstorm , they have priority immediately after to be the first to respond to their own spell. Same when Player D casts Lightning Bolt ; D has priority immediately after. Using that priority to add something else to the stack is "holding priority."
Yes, when Player D's Lightning Bolt resolves, Player A is the first to receive priority (if they want to cast/activate something), and they must pass followed by everyone else in turn passing without adding to the stack in order for the Brainstorm to resolve. Then A receives priority first again and everyone must pass for Grizzly Bears to resolve. It's the same in multiplayer as in 1v1, and it doesn't matter if it's team-based or not.

4 Player Commander Pod, Players A(active), B, C, D in game.
After Lightning Bolt resolves, who has priority? Is it Player A because they are active, or Player C who controls the spell on top of the stack?
From the Comp Rules: 116.3b The active player receives priority after a spell or ability (other than a mana ability) resolves.
This would mean, assuming everyone will pass from here, With Player C's Lightning Bolt on the top of the stack, Player A passes, then Player B, then Player C passes priority again on his own spell, then Player D, then it resolves.
This seems unintuitive, but I can't find any rule saying that it would function differently in (non-team based) multiplayer.

I predict there will be no change.
