Aight. First, you need a good ramp package. I'd go

You have 3 taplands, two of which are useless. They're better off being basics, although Skyline Cascade isn't the worst. Also, Evolving Wilds never belongs in 2-color decks. Temple of Epiphany is infinitely better.

Teferi's Ageless Insight, Alhammarret's Archive if you have the budget.

I think there are a couple simple improvements that could help with this deck. First, I don't see the real use of Jace, Arcane Strategist. It's high CMC and does synergize a lot with the deck. Second, you have only 19 Wizards in the deck including Kaza, and a very surprising amount of creatures are non-wizards. Kaza decks are based a lot on having consistent wizards on board. Definitely removing some of those non-wizards and adding in more wizards is going to help a lot. You certainly have plenty of color fixing in this deck so I think Curious Homunculus  Flip is an excellent candidate for being removed. Also Vizier of Tumbling Sands is not a wizard but cards like Aphetto Alchemist and Fatestitcher have similar abilities but they're both wizards. I would definitely suggest poking are for some good ideas on where to go with this deck. You have a good budget start but lots of room for improvement.

hawk911 don't get so upset over people offering actual constructive, valid feedback. I just made a very casual Kykar deck myself and even though it's probably under $150 in total cost it is likely stronger simply because it's a bit more focused. The 11 planeswalkers in her deck are insane. Planeswalkers have inherent weaknesses in EDH and unless you're playing a superfriends deck that supports them you're really not doing yourself any favors. I mean how is she planning on protecting any of her walkers with the little interaction she has and very few actual blockers. Her creature choices are questionable and I would get rid of all of the card draw ETB ones. She has some of the Kykar staples in Young Pyromancer, Talrand, Murmuring Mystic and Monastery Mentor but since 3 of them care about instants/sorceries instead of all non-creature spells, the best way to build would be spell slinger. Support them with cards like Electrostatic Field, Goblin Electromancer, Guttersnipe, Curious Homunculus  Flip, Elsha of the Infinite, and definitely Niv-Mizzet, Parun. Then run way more interaction, some burn, definitely mana rocks, and if she wants to run walkers I would recommend Ral, Storm Conduit, Saheeli, the Gifted, or Saheeli, Sublime Artificer. Anthems might seem nice but you're really not going to be winning by going wide and tall with a bunch of tokens in a deck that doesn't create tokens anywhere near as fast as Elves or some other commanders could.

To maximize how versatile this deck was and to maximize the use of the sideboard of choice, I added 3 copies of all spells except for Maddening Cacophony, Fraying Sanity, Curious Homunculus  Flip, and Baral, Chief of Compliance. This is because you should never remove Maddening Cacophony and Fraying Sanity from the deck, as they are a major part of this decks strategy. The reason there is 1 copy of Baral, Chief of Compliance and 2 copies of Curious Homunculus  Flip is to remove the chance of getting more then one Baral, Chief of Compliance, wasting a card in your hand and the 2 copies of Curious Homunculus  Flip accomplish the same thing but just in a different way.

My second paper deck was a super budget deck that ran 4x Curious Homunculus  Flip, so it brings back memories

I second multimedia, this deck would benefit from fewer creatures and more instants (since that's what your commander's ability is based around).

That said, some creatures I would suggest for a spellslinger theme (other than those already suggested) Goblin Electromancer, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Electrostatic Field, Spellseeker, Curious Homunculus  Flip, Guttersnipe, Sprite Dragon, or even Wavebreak Hippocamp.

There are so many good/cheap instants you can consider to fuel this thing too.

Saw the link and request for budget suggestions. I haven't played Melek but I am currently playing Mizzix of the Izmagnus and used to play Keranos, God of Storms. I'm a fan or UR all-around. The suggestions below are fairly generic since I'm unsure of how you want to win. Suggestions are based around cards I've used before in 60-card formats or in EDH with the previously mentioned legendaries, and should be under $5 each.
