Council's dilemma — Starting with you, each player votes for time or money. For each time vote, take an extra turn after this one. For each money vote, choose a permanent owned by the voter and gain control of it. Exile Expropriate.

I like your deck's style but you seem light on control finishers. On a budget I would recommend Approach of the Second Sun , Revel in Riches , Exsanguinate , Mind's Dilation , Painful Quandary , or Torment of Hailfire . There are others but things like Cyclonic Rift and Expropriate ain't cheap.
You also are kinda low on ramp and, for a control deck especially, card draw. You do have some but the conventional wisdom is eight-ish draw cards and eight-ish ramp cards (depending on plenty of variables, of course).
Seems like you're off to a good start though!

I love the deck, and I am building it in paper now! It's worked really well when I playtested it, managed to loop playing Expropriate and stealing all opponent's legendary permanents then ultimating Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and winning in a 30 min long turn so good job finding a fun new way to end games. I might just say though, there is one card Signpost Scarecrow which doesn't seem like it belongs there. Also another thing, by running half your basics as snow and half not, it counts as a different name to Field of the Dead

thanks bossomus for the suggestions. I definitely think Narset's Reversal could work well, any suggestions on a cut would be great! It's similar to Wild Ricochet and Dualcaster Mage (which I used to copy an Exsanguinate one game which was sweet!
As for Expropriate , that just feels against the idea of the deck, being defensive and using other people's threats against them.
I love the idea of Desertion , which I had in an initial draft, again it's about finding room and using more unique cards in some cases I think!

I think the card which best represents what it sounds like you want to do is Narset's Reversal . It gives you value and can save you from someone taking extra turns or outright winning (assuming they needed exact Mana). Just imagine taking an Expropriate (which I also recommend for this deck though it's on the pricier side).
You could also include Agent of Treachery as it gives you some good value and potentially draw if you're going hard on theft.
Lastly, I'd include Desertion . It can be cast from the top with Elsha and lets you take one of their creatures (or commander)!!
Best of luck!

have you considered Narset's Reversal ? I know you're running a lot of counterspells ect, but the reversal is really fun if your opponent plays like Expropriate , Exsanguinate , or any of the other spells that are meant to end the game on the spot.

ToolisMaynard I know of Expropriate very well. So well, in fact, that my playgroup house-banned it for obvious reasons, if you've ever played with it. In regards to Laboratory Maniac and Nexus, they aren't supposed to work together. I essentially built Muldrotha as a combo deck using Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + River Kelpie +sac outlet to draw my deck, play LabMan, and win. However, if LabMan gets exiled from my graveyard or permanently removed some other way, the deck folds quick, especially if removed in response to the draw. Nexus of Fate is supposed to counteract that, because you can't disrupt it unless you have an exiling counterspell.
While I do own most of the deck, my playgroup has opted to allow proxies due to financial imbalances :)

DubbaDubhey man that’s a good idea, I like the idea of extra turns, I don’t know if you know about this card but Expropriate it’s kind of pricy but if you own this deck then price really isn’t so bad lol, is there something I’m missing with the lab maniac? How would it work with nexus?
Expropriate occurrence in decks from the last year
