Omniscience_is_life: These are some interesting upgrades, thanks a lot for the comment and the upvote.
I'm not too fond of the mana rocks. Giving instead of is cool, but the upside seems minor. I'll still consider it.

Coldsteel Heart seems like an upgrade to Prismatic Lens, Commander's Sphere seems like it could be cut for Ornithopter of Paradise, and maybe Thought Vessel could come out for Star Compass. That should get you better access to colored mana, which it seems like you don't have much of.
If you can afford fetches... you know they're good. Enough said lol

Have you considered Planar Void? Once it goes into the Graveyard it automatically exiles. speeding up the damage your opponents. There's also the added bonus that, unlike Rest in Peace, it won't automatically exile your whole graveyard when it enters the battlefield, allowing a little bit of interaction if you so wish.
Speaking of Rest in Peace, I noticed you only have Feed the Swarm to deal with that and Leyline of the Void. May I suggest adding any combination of Introduction to Annihilation, Mire in Misery, Pharika's Libation, and Scour from Existence? All of these cards can get you around LotV's and RiP's ability to exile before your cards reach the graveyard..
Also, You may want to considerDakmor Salvage as an extra dredge card.
Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Looking ahead, I think we could add Treasure Vault, but it's also a bit risky.
Anyway, welcome back! Hope everything is going well!

While the theory behind Stolen by the Fae is solid- removing a problematic creature while leaving evasive, ninja-enabling faeries behind, I've never found it to be great in practice. Introduction to Annihilation can remove anything, including enchantments and artifacts that Dimir has trouble with, while also doing a solid five damage to each opponent if I draw it off of the top.

Contentious Plan Sort of replaced Impulse as my two-mana card for early counters. The value of Deflecting Swat can hardly be overstated, as it provides early protection for Mizzix while being relevant all game long.
Spouts is such a conditional card, and we have plenty of board wipes when we count or kill-the-table x-spells. Intro is great in that its free permanent removal for us much of the time.
A counterspell that can only counter a creature spell is underwhelming, and we added swat. I can't believe Dramatic Reversal hadn't been added earlier. It plays into our combo with Reiterate , and allows us to fetch the whole combo with Firemind's Foresight . A true must include!
Fall was always our worst x-spell, and we have more than enough in the deck. For a replacement win con its far better to just take another turn and steal everyone's best thing. The greatest thing about this card is that its so cheap to cast with Mizzix!
Spring is great but sorcery speed and a one-off. Archmage will draw us cards the whole game. We're up to three whole creatures in this deck now!
I've got plenty of copy dorks here, so another tutor is great, especially one that will usually cost me just two blue mana!

Hi Moby, thanks for the feedback. Lots of cool suggestions as always. :)
You're not wrong about evasion vs. anthems but I want some anthems so Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a two hit kill. I agree Obelisk of Urd is not a great fit as it doesn't add much beyond being an anthem and should be replaced by Akroma's Memorial which was previously too expensive but has been reprinted recently and I'll pick one on my next order. Phyrexian Splicer is also interesting looks to be a deceptively powerful one that I'll consider.
Whereas most of the other anthems do more Forsaken Monument is a mana doubler, Vanquisher's Banner and The Immortal Sun are card draw, and Adaptive Automaton is an early body which Eldrazi kind of lack.
I feel the monument cycle don't add enough outside of monocolour and granting trample is a little too conditional in this deck with less than 30 creatures.
You mentioned it in your comments but one of the most powerful things about Eldrazi are the big cast triggers hence why Lithoform Engine and Strionic Resonator are in instead of card like Helm of the Host and Minion Reflector .
P.S. I posted this deck in the discord because Ben ultimated Jace, Architect of Thought while playing on spelltable and wanted to search my deck.

Would you consider the new lesson as a possible spot nonland removal spell?
