I'm curious to hear how Overmaster has performed for you. My Doomsday list doesn't have access to red, but I'd definitely give it a shot if I could. Black Market Connections also seems pretty sick. Has it lived up to it's cost? Plunge into Darkness is sick as well. Is it as good as I hoped? I haven't had a chance to pick one up.

Have you considered Thought Scour and its older brother Mental Note? In my experience, they give access to a pretty efficient pile that costs only in most situations. Both might not be necessary, but at least one might be decent. Opt seems a little weak to me, so I would consider one of these as a replacement.

I might have missed it, but is there a reason you're not running the first Faithless Looting effect? Frantic Search and Careful Study are also options for this.

+1. Love seeing people out here experimenting with Doomsday!

I'd cut: Rush of Knowledge - there are much better draw spells, even when you generally have your general as a 4cmc land out. Frantic Search - I don't think this is worth playing unless you care about the discard. Elvish Piper - there are better cards like Monster Manual now. Displacement Wave - potentially alright with how high cmc your stuff is? But it is kind of inefficient and works against your mana artifacts. Generally I think you want to replace more of your ramp with land fetches like Rampant Growth over the mana rocks.

For adds: Monster Manual, hullbreaker horror as one of the best new Sea Monsters. Trench Behemoth seems interesting to me? Khalni Ambush  Flip as a way to get your land count up. Farseek as land ramp.

I'm not sure about the small instant-speed subtheme you have going with Rewind and Unwind and just general high-amount of instants. You've got a lot of high cmc leviathans which I think would tend to lead to you playing more sorcery speed. Might be easier to have lower cost interaction over expensive interaction that untaps.

Also agree on all of Lynn's cuts.

Futuremonk on Spellshaper Madness

Thanks! I originally had it, but I realized the deck really wants to hold up mana for the spellshaper and other abilities, so I opted for instant speed options like Frantic Search and Izzet Charm instead.

Love tetsuo and will definitely brew him when he drops. Not sure how competitive he will be but I feel like he would be amazing with effects like Snap and Frantic Search.

Hey, you have an interesting/fun deck, but sorry it's casual power level (PL) 5 at most.

Lands in the manabase and ramp sources are a big sign of what PL. A low budget manabase that has Highland Lake and Temple of the False God isn't PL 7-8. Very little ramp with a 4.0 avg. CMC is not PL 7-8. Please get rid of Temple of the False God.

It's difficult to get to PL 8 or higher on a low budget because the best lands and mana rocks are some of the most expensive cards in Commander. At best on a low budget unless playing mono-colored you're looking at PL 6. Your deck doesn't have any instants or sorceries? Izzet has many good low budget instants and sorceries especially for draw.

You have an infinite combo Niv-Mizzet, Parun + Curiosity, that helps to have a higher PL. Although, Niv-Mizzet, Parun is better as a win condition when it's the Commander not inside the 99. You have many potential other win conditions: Purphoros, God of the Forge, Reckless Fireweaver, Impact Tremors, Nettle Drone, etc., but lack enablers to combo with these win conditions.

To increase PL your deck needs to be more tuned to get to the final goal which is to win the game. PL 8 uses just about all cards in the deck to help to assemble a combo win, ramp, tutor, draw, protect the combo or stop an opponent's combo. If a card doesn't help to do one of these then it's not needed in the deck. Don't try to get to PL 8 unless you can spend for expensive price cards instead shoot for PL 6.

Here's some low budget cards to increase the PL of your deck:

Feed the Swarm, Infernal Grasp and Pongify could be possible cuts for the suggested removal spells.

Cut a swamp for Geier Reach Sanitarium

I might be wrong about this but delve seems counter productive to the strategy. Cut Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time for the much needed Entomb and Frantic Search.
