I like Curious Homunculus  Flip but the flipped dude Voracious Reader doesn't synergise that well with your instants/sorceries. No effect on Counterflux / Serum Visions / Lightning Bolt , no one hard casts Rift Bolt , and Thunderous Wrath should only be Mircaled. So you only gain a benefit from Jaya's Immolating Inferno and Fight with Fire , and Jaya's Immolating Inferno is dependant on 6 other cards being on the field!

Feels slow, high CMC, and the synergy could be better. I agree with pretty much everything PhoenixNest said.

You could drop down to 32 lands with some more artifact ramp. Check out these: Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Creativity . Also Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic .

You run blue, why no counter spells? Delay , Flusterstorm , Counterspell , Mana Drain , Disallow (all top tier)
Mana Leak , Counterflux , Pact of Negation are... okay too.

Check out Ashiok, Dream Render ! A lot of high tier library's search for their combo pieces. She stifles this quite well.

Since you run copy artifact, you might like Sculpting Steel too.

Rhystic Study , Mystic Remora , Necropotence , and Phyrexian Arena are also top tier cards that I highly recommend. Card advantage is king.

There is a lot you can do with this deck.

Maybe you could take out Cancel , Mystic Confluence to put in Mana Leak , Arcane Denial to lower the curve and help ya draw more forks. Or if ya don't like soft counters, Archmage's Charm and Counterflux are strictly better options than Cancel . Also you could run Talisman of Creativity as a 2 mana replacement for Izzet Locket . I personally recommend taking out the ramp entirely and playing Ponder Preordain Serum Visions Sleight of Hand to improve your chances of curving out while still being able to interact each turn

Love to see another Niv-Mizzet deck!

But I have some questions about what you have here.

Why run Finale of Revelation ? Stroke of Genius can win games for more, and Pull from Tomorrow is an instant at the cost of discarding a card. Either (or both) seems better than Finale.

Since you aren't running many fetches, I think you could afford to cut Brainstorm for Impulse or maybe Sleight of Hand (or Search for Azcanta  Flip which I see in your maybe board).

I don't think Counterflux is all that great, it's really color heavy for a glorified cancel 80% of the time. If storm or control are common in your meta than disregard and keep going.

Ionize does seem rather weak though, I think Counterspell is an easy swap.

How is Consecrated Sphinx doing for you? I'm considering adding him to my own list but I'm not sure if he is better than a Chemister's Insight .

Clear the Mind may be less mana intensive, but I think Learn from the Past is better since it doubles as grave hate in a pinch.

AEtherize never felt great to me, have you considered Starstorm or Earthquake as more permanent control options instead?

How frequently do you actually need Reliquary Tower ? It seems really overkill in most cases especially when your wincon is Dramatic Scepter. Also tapping for colorless when the commander costs is painful.

Isn't Thousand-Year Storm really unnecessary? Sure you get infinite storm with dramatic scepter, but why not just run Grapeshot or Brain Freeze at that point?

How's Keranos, God of Storms doing? He seems painfully slow for the odd chance to bolt.

All in all, I do like the deck. Props for not defaulting to the Curiosity Combo Niv is infamous for! If you're interested, here's my own decklist, though it's still a work in progress, any suggestions are more than welcome: Mad Science with a bit of Control

Stormchaser Mage , Pteramander , and Enigma Drake could all find a home in this deck. You're also pretty low on both removal and counterspells for a deck that wants to be 'control'. Flame Slash and Lava Coil are decent removal options that won't break the bank. 6-8 targetted removal spells will be what you want to shoot for. 1-2 of something that can deal with a whole board of guys is a good idea too, like Sweltering Suns or Anger of the Gods . Spell Snare , Logic Knot , and Cryptic Command are some of the most popular counterspells that you're missing. Remand , Counterflux , Disallow , and Supreme Will are all less popular options that still get the job done, and can save you from shelling out $120 for a set of cryptics. Feel free to mix and match counters, but be sure you're getting a good mix of ones that are powerful early game and ones that are powerful late game. Try to shoot for 6-10 counterspells, your sweet spot will be somewhere in there. As for cuts, Ral Zarek , Clout of the Dominus , Frostburn Weird , and Void Snare will all probably struggle to pull their weight in the deck.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!
