Dramatic Reversal is kind of weak as it would really only be used to double up on Glacian's activated ability once. Come to think of it, maybe replacing that with something like Rings of Brighthearth or Lithoform Engine would be a better replacement for that?
Lux Cannon and Scourglass are some of the deck's only means of removal, so I'd like to try and keep them in. They're not in any sort of danger from removal most of the time, though, because once Rebbec is out, both will more than likely be immune to targeted removal.

Oops, I totally spaced and meant Blinkmoth Urn which makes way more sense!
My first cuts for Duplicant and Urn if you want it would probably be Lux Cannon and Scourglass , because your opponents have a lot of time to respond or deal with them; if you want to keep one of them, maybe Dramatic Reversal .

Don't know if you're interested, but a good addition might be Mimic Vat , to combo with your Coretapper . Creating a hasty Coretapper every turn for 3 mana means you can activate your Golem Foundry , Lux Cannon , Titan Forge , or Magistrate's Scepter every turn, or you can super charge/accelerate your Astral Cornucopia , Empowered Autogenerator , Everflowing Chalice , Grindclock , or Darksteel Reactor . Again, just a suggestion, +1 for the fun deck!

Decent deck. You might think about getting that average cmc below 2.5 but besides that I like it
So don't take my recommendations as me disliking your deck, but I'd suggest adding Eidolon of Blossoms,Enchantress's Presence, Fertile Ground, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Tuvasa the Sunlit, Setessan Champion, Bear Umbra, Winds of Wrath, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel. But consider which of the higher cmc ones you y like because average cmc is important
Suggested cuts would be: Charisma, Thornweald Archer, Rofellos's Gift, Grimoire of the Dead, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Predator Ooze, Revoke Existence, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Lux Cannon, Stonecoil Serpent, Behemoth Sledge, Necropede, Wall of Denial, Spawning Grounds (as cool as it is, it's likely going to get the land it's on blown up), and think about taking out some of your etb tapped lands. Again these are suggestions and in no way am I saying these cards aren't good.
Anyways, hope it helps and I do like the deck, estrid proliferate is a good place for this commander

One of my all-time favorite creatures would have to be Coretapper. Tap him, add a charge counter. Sac him, add two charge counters. Throw him into a Mimic Vat, and suddenly whatever artifact you have that requires removing 3 charge counters can be done once a turn, every turn for 3 mana! Destroy target permanent(Lux Cannon)? Pay 3 mana. Create a 9/9 Golem(Titan Forge)? Pay 3 mana. Take an extra turn(Magistrate's Scepter)? Pay 3 mana! Honestly, whenever I see decks that want charge counters that aren't running Coretapper, it boggles my mind!

Second, are you focusing on a Voltron-style Commander damage win with Kozilek? I can tell you it doesn't happen very often since he's actually quite vulnerable to removal. I also started with a build that had a lot of unblockable effects, but it turns out that Kozilek isn't the best attacker compared to your other Eldrazi. I'd focus more on using Kozilek for card advantage and digging for your other Eldrazi to win the game.
Finally, a few upgrades to consider: Manifold Key is strictly better than Voltaic Key. Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion are both super helpful and more impactful than Reality Smasher and Sandstone Oracle. Doubling Cube is pretty fun ramp and probably better than Gilded Lotus. Commander's Plate is going to be much better than Whispersilk Cloak, though it's decently expensive rn.
Here's my list that I've been running for a few years, if you want more ideas: Kozi Kozi Commander (Colorless Eldrazi EDH)
Have fun, it's a super fun deck to play with!

bushido_man96 the thought never occured to me I'll check it out
Daedalus19876 I was thinking of some combo with spine of ish sah or Lux Cannon to eliminate threats while working out blue's weaknesses to removing things off the battlefield you're right about some of those counterspells. What I do wish if there was a way to get out more merfolk tokens in mono blue

Cainhegis: I'll discuss each of those one by one.
Spark Double seems a bit underwhelming. It's just a clone that adds to it a way for Atraxa to buff it. It's not bad, but I feel not exceedingly good enough to make the cut. However, it should have made it to the list of evaluated and cut cards. I'll make sure to add it there.
Steelbane Hydra is a gem I definitely overlooked. I'll be looking hard for a place to fit it in.
Despark was considered and cut for better removal. It may have been cut in favor of Abrupt Decay back when this deck was leaning more high tier. It might actually go back into the 100 either with or over Abrupt Decay.
Walking Ballista recently graduated off of cut and onto "maybe." But it's in maybe just to garner more attention. It seems good, but also seems slow. Is a 10/10 that'll get targeted with removal and end up killing one other thing good enough? I just don't know.
Simic Manipulator was on the cut list, not sure why it isn't there anymore. But I do recall why it didn't make it into the 100. It's effect is kind of slow. It's getting between one and two +1/+1 counters put on it a turn, which doesn't feel impactful enough. It's not bad, just kind of slow. I'll add it back to the cut list.
Magistrate's Scepter was cut around the time Lux Cannon was cut, and which was also around the time all additional proliferate support was cut. The focus of the deck narrowed to +1/+1 counters, resulting in additional fun cards seeing the ax.
In order of what I would be more inclined to add, Steelbane Hydra is at the top of that list. Walking Ballista is already under re-review. Despark deserves more consideration. Spark Double, Simic Manipulator, and Magistrate's Scepter would need a strong argument to make me reconsider.
