So some more fine tuning below:
Still looking for suggestions, and feedback :)

I love Grixis tempo/aggro/control. I'd recommend cutting some basics and such for the MDFCs, you might like Jwari Disruption Flip. Also, you appear to like discard/casting synergies, so here is what I recommend for both:
For more prowess-y like stuff, if you want to go a bit more spellslinger-ish, consider running Stormwing Entity or Underworld Breach. If you're not worried about your things getting killed, definitely consider adding wraths to the main. Storm's Wrath does a great job at this.
For a more discard-synergy oriented deck, I'd say add more things that make you discard to power up Rielle. Ox of Agonas does this really well, and I see you already are running 3x Royal Scions. Also, take a look at Chandra, Heart of Fire if you want to go down this route.
Seems like a decent deck that has a lot of potential. At the moment, the deck is somewhat muddled, but with the proper tweaks, this could be a force to reckon with. I wish you good luck in getting there!

Determining just how broken a card is depends on how well it can be interacted with. Omanth is very easy to interact with. However I do believe Genesis Ultimatum or Escape to the Wilds should have seen the axe
The other problem is that so many players are playing it just to win.
I think the bigger problem is that it forces a player to interact with it so early which throws off an opponents game plan, that and players don't want to put more removal in their decks.

That's a whole lot of cards that can deal with Omnath decks. So its not so broken that it can't be dealt with. Does it mean you have to add more than 4 removal cards or change colors? You might have to. Does it mean you might have to change some strategy? Possibly.
Mono White has at least 12 solid answer cards for Omnath and you can still play aggro. Blue has counterspells though you might have to pair it with another color. Red has a few options as well, and the only color that is lacking is if you play mono green. With that many cards you really can't say it's so broken it's unbeatable. You have to play around it. You have to anticipate the strategy. These cards can easily be maindecked, and if youre a player that goes 38 creatures and only 22 lands then I'm sorry for you.
But I wholey disagree with the term Broken. Ive often seen Omnath players quit when they lose Cobra and Omnath. I've also seen a lot of them pass the turn and pass several turns. If you cannot answer it, its out of lack of trying, preparedness, or just a bad game which happens. Also, its not Omnath doing broken things. Omnath only produces the mana to do really really good things. IF Wizards bans Escape and Ultimatum players will have to switch to Lithoforming and while it won't kill the deck it will slow it down and I think that's a more fair approach. But yeah... as above, you don't have to limit yourself to just what's being played. Think outside the box.

The reason I said I would go down 1 Spell Snare is because, just in my personal opinion, I think it is best when used as a one of when you run 4 copies of Snapcaster Mage. You also have another copy in the sideboard so running 2 in the main is just a lot overall and could get you into trouble in certain matchups that coincidentally don't have many 2 CMC cards worth countering.
I think I would also consider running Aether Gust or more copies of Ceremonious Rejection in the in the sideboard in place of Mystical Dispute and Essence Scatter. I believe Essence Scatter in particular can be replaced with really anything because it doesn't seem super relevant to counter creature spells when you have 4 Lightning Bolt, 1 Abrade, 1 Izzet Charm, 1 Magmatic Sinkhole, and 1 Flame Slash for removal and you can easily flash those back too with Snapcaster Mage. Essence Scatter just seems super redundant.

Gamble and Intuition are a bit harder to recommend a 1x1 exchange of cards, as both of them would really like you to also run Underworld Breach (note that Intuition is already super busted on its own), so I'd suggest putting Breach in as well. I Suggest removing Thought Scour, Reality Spasm, and Pirate's Pillage. My reasoning for these choices is that I believe they are cards that don't really perform very well on the deck and can be taken out for this package. Pirate's Pillage nets you 1 mana when you have Mizzix out and that's very nice, but if you got Mizzix out with 3 counters already you're very much on your way to winning the game, while on other situations this card doensn't feel very nice, especially if it is countered. Reality Spasm also nets you mana, but you need Mizzix out with 3+ counters for that and if that's the case you can probably search your Turnabout. Thought Scour just wasn't doing enough for me, messing up a tutor now and then is nice, but most of the time I just wish I could have used this 1 mana for something else.
Underworld Breach wins you the game with Bonus Round and Frantic Search. Cast Bonus Round and then Frantic Search, with your floating mana cast Breach and the Frantic Search from the grave. Each cast will net you 1 mana and 1 extra card in the grave, envetually you'll find Reiterate and Seething Song, generate infinite mana returning Reiterate to your hand with buyback and mill everyone with Stroke of Genius or whatever. As p0megranates eloquently explains on the guide, once you get to this point winning the game is easy.
For Intuition you'll probably want to check the deck to see if there is a 3 card pile that wins you the game, as of right now I don't think so. But adding Mizzix's Mastery enables the following pile:Mizzix's Mastery, Past in Flames, Enter the Infinite.
If they give you Enter the Infinite, flashback Past in Flames, flashback Intuition searching Faithless Looting or Frantic Search or any discard outlet. Discard Enter the Infinite and flashback Mizzix's Mastery for Enter the Infinite.

With the possibility of Omnath and Lotus Cobra generating 10 mana on turn four, you may want to force them to pay more than 2 to negate the counter.
