Rather than pay the mana cost for a spell, its controller may discard a card that shares a color with that spell.

It’s my main phase and I have a Nekusar, the Mindrazer and a Dream Halls in play. I cast Echo of Eons through dream halls, it resolves. Me and my opponents draw 7 cards and they get dealt 7 damage. Now, is it possible to cast all at once without passing priority Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and Day's Undoing through dream halls before my opponent cast Return to Dust through dream halls and thus doing 21 damage (7 new cards drawn)
Side note: with nekusar and days undoing, do you deal damage before you end the turn or does day’s undoing not work with nekusar?

I built an EDH deck a couple of years ago with Richard Garfield, Ph.D. as the commander. My deckbuilding challenge was to use the worst blue cards and artifacts -- cards as irrelevant as Balduvian Shaman and Delif's Cone. The idea is that when he is not in play, the deck is completely useless, but as soon as you get him onto the battlefield, suddenly your Dark Sphere becomes Pact of Negation and your Air Elemental becomes Dream Halls.
In theory, the deck was absolutely nuts, but I ended up playing it once, getting frustrated, and taking it apart. The reason was that I wasted too much time during the game on looking up cards in Gatherer and writing things down on sticky notes. It was terrible! No fun for anyone.
Just recently, I had an idea that I could prepare for any game by printing proxies on cards I planned to play. I could have little slips of paper that go in front of the card so that everyone knows my Ornithopter has become a Black Lotus.
Has anyone else built a deck with Richard Garfield and has some thoughts to share? I'm looking forward to putting it back together and getting a proxy-board together.
By the way, I recently learned how to search Gatherer for specific mana costs. This is highly relevant for deck building with this commander. In the "Mana Cost" field, you can type m/3uu/ to search for ; e.g. https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&mana=+=[m/3uu/]

I recommend Jhoira of the Ghitu, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Knowledge Pool,Dream Halls, Pyxis of Pandemonium, and Paradox Haze. They seem like they would like to meet your deck. Also, maybe Goblin Test Pilot?
The only card I WOULDN'T recommend is Scrambleverse. Other cards like that are fine, but Scrambleverse is definitely NOT OKAY. XD

These suggestions are going to be 1-for-1 replacements as far as mana cost is concerned:
These suggestions are more or less "maybe-board-esque" includes that I don't know why they aren't in the deck:
Phantasmal Image is a 2-CMC copy a creature so you can hit it with Gyruda and keep it moving. Dies to any kind of removal, so it might be an okay reanimate target.
Voidwalk a flyer after Gyruda is out.
Victimize is kind of clutch since you'll be milling all sorts of stuff.
Bitter Ordeal keeps looking better. Like every time I read it, especially if you are recurring clones.
I don't like this card, but why not Dream Halls ? Keep jamming stuff out. I hate to think that Vilis would be a dead card in your hand because you're only running 31 lands.
Stitch Together because good cards are good.
Mirror Mockery because ETBs exist in your deck amongst a few cards.
So not as much replacement. It's pretty good as it is. I think if you were to lean in to what I'm suggesting, it'd be more ETB focused. I don't think that's quite as neat, but ya know, it's stuff with reasons.
Ted talk for how do you can tribe, thank?

My first commander deck I ever built was Marchesa in 2016. It was hot garbage. I revisited the deck in 2019 and tweaked it. I made an entire strategy around the card Sneak Attack and I loved it because why pay casting costs when you can just pay , glad to see it in other decks. I also really enjoy Dream Halls. It has a similar effect that lets you cheat stuff in, but it also lets opponents do the same. I think you might be able to benefit off of a Phyrexian Altar. Another card that was fun in the deck I made was Insurrection, because hitting someone with their own creatures, giving them +1/+1 counters, then saccing them to keep them is just degenerate and fun.
As far as hand hate, Sire Of Insanity, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Magus of the Wheel are good creatures to make sure people dont get hands. Other cards are Winds of Change, Windfall, and Wheel of Fortune. Throw in a properly timed Notion Thief and look ma' no hands!

Definitely think about Dream Halls, Hive Mind, Consecrated Sphinx. These cards bring chaos and fun to the table, but also have really powerful effects. Wound Reflection also has flavor in a lot of Nekusar decks, along with Pain Magnification, Painful Quandary, Fate Unraveler. If you're looking for more wheel effects, then Magus of the Wheel, Echo of Eons, and Winds of Change could help. Not sure of your budget here, but Wheel of Fortune is very powerful and useful. If your mana is feeling a bit off, you could try Chromatic Lantern to help get the colors you need. Hope this helps!
