Mind's Desire

Sorcery

Shuffle your library. Then exile the top card of your library. Until end of turn, you may play that card without paying its mana cost. (If it has X in its mana cost, X is 0.)

Storm (When you cast this spell, copy it for each spell cast before it this turn.)

I think Spelltwine doesn't work with your commander, because you are copying the cards and casting them instead of copying the spell. If that's right than Mizzix's Mastery and Arcane Bombardment also wouldn't work, sadly. Maybe they are good enough to keep anyway? Not sure. Cards with the Cipher mechanic are also so close to working but I don't think they do. This is actually kind of hard to brew around! Ugh, God-Eternal Kefnet wouldn't work either, ew.

Immolating Gyre and Volcanic Vision are really good boardwipes in a spells-y deck... as is Cyclonic Rift, which you definitely should still run. In fact, all the overload spells are pretty sweet here, since they only target things you don't control, so if you copy them opponent's can't even pay the 4 life to hit one of your things. Makes Vandalblast and friends possibly worth it.

Radiate is such a fun card that could do some real crazy things here! Shoutout to Radiant Performer as well.

Sublime Epiphany and Volcanic Offering Might not be good enough here.

I really like Narset's Reversal, Split Decision, and the demonstrate cards in this deck! Obviously Twinning Staff is fun here too.

It will be interesting to see if Lithoform Engine or Pyromancer's Goggles will be good enough here (I like Primal Amulet  Flip). Maybe more spells that copy spells are better than these chunkier repeatable ones? Things like Galvanic Iteration or Reiterate if you like the buyback better. Or Increasing Vengeance for the beefier flashback. Hell, if its politics Bonus Round could be really fun. Chef's Kiss is a newer one that I forgot about

Maybe this is the kind of deck where Thrilling Encore shines?

Is Stunning Reversal here to try and copy and save other people with?? Seems like it may not be good enough when you have access to blue for card draw/protection anyway.

I've found the expertise cycle (Baral's Expertise, Yahenni's Expertise, maybe not Kari Zev's Expertise) to be really fun with spell copying, since they in turn let you cast more spells themselves.

I wish, as I always do, that Cloven Casting wasn't soooo bad. Or like, any of the cards with Replicate. Those would be so perfect. Maybe Shattering Spree is good enough but I think it isn't. Ugh, that makes me think about how you're definitely supposed to play storm cards in this deck. Are there any storm cards that aren't miserable? Mind's Desire maybe...

Is Charmbreaker Devils good enough?

Wild Ricochet is an oldie but maybe enough of a goodie here with the copying theme?

Harmonic Prodigy since your commander is a wizard isn't a terrible idea...

Humble Defector might be too cute.

Gotta have Rakdos Charm! Honestly there might be other charms that are worth it to like Crosis's Charm, but definitely Rakdos Charm.

Cruel Ultimatum is the ultimate chunky spell and you're even in the right colors for it!

Also Chaos Warp is still good enough as universal instant speed removal and kind of fun/politics-y as well

Niko9! Thanks for all the constructive advice and card suggestions! And the vote of confidence. I honestly have only had one chance to play this deck so far, but it performed well and won the day. I am always looking for ways to improve and I will take your suggestions to heart! I also love Narset as a character in MTG (she reminds me of Michelle Yeoh in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) and her abilities are usually pretty neat as well! Clone does feel weak here, I'm not sure why I added that, I'm fairly certain there are better options. I replaced it with Mind's Desire for now. I do not have copies of any of the other cards you suggested except Eldrazi Conscription but that is in my Sigarda deck. THanks again for the Insight! Glad you like the build! Cheers!

Have you considered Mind's Desire? With Tidespout Tyrant on the battlefield, you can bounce two 0-drop artifacts (e.g Mana Crypt and Mox Opal) to create an infinite storm count, then cast your entire deck. You wouldn't need the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo.

Got a big list of possible inclusions and cards to cut for ya. I'll try to keep things budget(ish) friendly, but there's a few I'm not suggesting that're worth trading up for.

Inclusions: Fury of the Horde, Mizzix's Mastery, Relentless Assault, Seize the Day, World at War, Razia's Purification, Mystical Tutor, Mind's Desire, Bonus Round, and/or Storm Herd.

Cuts: Approach of the Second Sun, Reconstruct History, Solve the Equation, Conjurer's Closet, and a few counterspells.
