Good call on Tortured Existence . I love that card, and I don't know how I didn't think to put it in my Anje build. Just added it. I like your build here. I'm still tweaking mine. I'm going to throw in Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip as another wincon.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer wheel deck

Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip + Shabraz, the Skyshark wheel or discard/draw version

Feather, the Reedemed go a pinger/slinger version instead of voltron equipment strategy

Niv-Mizzet, Parun is really a combo deck

Mizzix of the Izmagnus buyback, NO deck or storm deck options

So I built a cycle deck Cycle the deck, and destroy everyone based around Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip and Shabraz, the Skyshark. TBH mostly because a sharkbird is the best card to come out of magic EVER. but now I want this to be a polished deck, any help is wonderful

Curse of the Cabal suspend it out early then hit them again from the graveyard. Especially mean after a boardwipe.

Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip

Reins of Power can take out two aggro decks at once. Play your turn then swap armies with one guy to attack another guy.

Cool Deck, Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip / Glint-Horn Buccaneer + Chandra's Spitfire + A Wheel will delete someone. The spitfire is already getting 19 power from a Faithless Looting effect and your commander and is getting 9x7 power from a Wheel with 3 opponents.

Gravitational Shift and or Bubble Matrix

Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip if you go full discard, right now half your cards put your hand on the bottom of your deck.

Do you get much use out of Ashnod's Altar? I don't see a real mana sink for all that colorless mana except Folio of Fancies. If you want more big mana then Mana Echoes just dropped in price.

Some cards that you might like: Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip, Shabraz, the Skyshark, Rielle, the Everwise, The Locust God, Psychosis Crawler, Burning Inquiry, Molten Psyche, Narset, Parter of Veils, Alms Collector, a Niv-Mizzet of your choice perhaps, Fevered Visions, Magus of the Jar, Wheel of Fate, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Winds of Change and I'll stop myself there lol.

Something you could do that might be cool would be to run a lot of cards like Dictate of Kruphix, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and Howling Mine to boost everybody's draw (might make them consider not killing you lol). That would rip the rug out from under everybody and make your wheels that much more impactful. Make them discard 12 cards instead of 6 or 7! Plus you're getting them closer to drawing on an empty deck.

To add to your fort cards I would recommend perhaps Silent Arbiter since you aren't trying to swing out anyway and it fits your Pariah combo quite well, and Crawlspace.

As far as card draw goes, my favorites are targeted X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith and Stroke of Genius as they could always be upgraded to kill tools with an infinite source of mana i.e. Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and I just like them a lot. If you decided to pursue group draw you could also experiment with stuff like Prosperity, Minds Aglow, and Fascination (you said you like options right?). Along with this I would add to your ability to win off of self mill with Thassa's Oracle and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries so that Lab Man has some friends.

I know you're running some recursion yourself but this deck has the potential to seriously fuel opposing decks with heavy graveyard interaction as their motif, for obvious reasons lol. Since you have have access to white you could always try Rest in Peace for the complete shutdown, and then maybe a Grafdigger's Cage just as another piece of graveyard hate. Alternatively, you might prefer cards with one time effects like Relic of Progenitus and Scavenger Grounds.. or you could mix and match! Up to you.

FINALLY, (yes I know, we're finally at the end) I would honestly just replace many of the dual lands you have that come in tapped with basics. I just personally don't enjoy having my lands come in tapped while everyone else gets ahead, and I really feel like basics are actually better than tapped lands even if they don't have the versatility or effects. Of course shocks and duals and fetches would always be nice, but we're trying to stay in budget so I'd just stick to the basics.

I know it's long but I just really enjoy researching cards and learning about different strats so I usually get carried away. I tried to stick with recommendations that stay under $10 but a few over the limit might've slipped through. I like your deck, hope this helped! :^)
