Somehow, the average converted mana cost of this deck had increased to 3.64, and I do not recall what change that I made to the deck that caused it to increase, but it does not matter, since I have replaced Ring of Three Wishes with Sevinne's Reclamation, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.64 to 3.58, which is very nice. Some of the other cards that I considered were Mystical Tutor, Galvanic Iteration, Increasing Vengeance, and Winds of Abandon, but I ultimately chose the reclamation, since this deck does not have much recursion, otherwise. I admit that I am strongly tempted to instead put Mystic Retrieval in the deck, but I shall see how well the reclamation works, before I put a card into the deck that shall increased its prevalence of blue even further.

Wait, you do have Mystical Tutor! Missed that one! The other are newer though and really great additions that add consistency.

Nice list! Mizzix is the ultimate control commander in EDH, and one of the few who can truly seize control of the game. And X-spells are absolutely the way to go! Have you thought about any proliferate cards? Steady Progress, Fuel for the Cause, and Tezzeret's Gambit directly increase your experience counters, which is fabulous. I also love tutoring in the deck since I usually win with Reiterate and Turnabout, so Solve the Equation and Invert / Invent are amazing newer tutors, and there is also still good old Mystical Tutor as well. If you're interested my deck is here- Mizzix puts the "X" in Excellence!. I haven't written a primer on it yet or promoted it much, but I have kept it updated with cards as new sets come out and it performs well.

Strionic Resonator doubles Narset's attack trigger allowing you to exile the top 8 cards.
Aqueous Form grants unblockable and lets you dig 5 deep with Narset.
Go truly creatureless and drop Clever Impersonator for Proteus Staff. This will quite literally allow you to stack your ENTIRE deck in the order you want it.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

One more thing I forgot! Don't sleep on some inexpensive (in real world $ and mana) tutors that blue has. They're not all overpriced like Mystical Tutor. Solve the Equation gets you any instant or sorcery you want. Merchant Scroll is great for getting a counterspell. Fabricate, Whir of Invention, and Reshape can get you artifacts. Long-Term Plans will put anything you want three cards down in your library, which is great when you are in the color that can easily draw into it. You don't even have to show it to your opponents! You'll love the consistency just a few of these cards brings.

Thanks for the feedback xram666, and I appreciate the kind words!
As for the cards, I totally forgot about Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire! I remember when that was revealed I vowed to try it out in several of my black decks (since in any context it's a repeatable black tutor), but the top deck manipulation in Yuriko is unparalleled. Thanks for pointing that out- I will definitely put that in.
As for Thalakos Seer, I am aware of it and have thought about trying it out, but what holds me back is that I used to play Baleful Strix, which performs similarly to the seer. I ended up not liking it as much because one mana is just so much better than two for enablers. Being able to play the enabler, use ninjutsu, than replay the enabler in the second main to be ready to attack and enable ninjutsu the next turn is just so good. I also find that card draw is at a bit less of a premium in Yuriko since she draws so many cards anyway, so I didn't find that pulling Baleful Strix really made much of an impact that way.
I know that a lot of people play Brainstorm, but I personally don't like it too much in commander due to it's one off nature. Setting up one attack with only the top three of my library just doesn't inspire me all that much. I'd rather just use Scroll Rack, Soothsaying, Insidious Dreams, or Lim-Dul's Vault, which are more impactful, or Sensei's Divining Top, which is repeatable, or tutor with Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire (thanks again!) or Mystical Tutor or Scheming Symmetry. Its just hard to justify the slot for me, but I am an extremely value-centric deck builder, maybe to a fault!
Umezawa's Jitte is amazingly flavorful, which is a huge plus for me. Its also just such an iconic card in magic's history, which is another plus. It's also definintely good, and could definitely work. For me my intuition is that it might just be a bit too midrange with my approach. Usually when I play creatures are going into and out of my hand, which makes the cost of re-equipping it over and over again burdensome. I've always played with Sword of the Animist, which is one of the best non-green ramp cards there is, but I usually abandon it after I get a few lands out because I want to use the creature for something else. I definitely think it could work, especially if you're disciplined enough to keep building up charges till you can dome someone with it, but I'm not sure I have the discipline! That being said, its a cool card, and if I had a copy I would probably be trying it just because it's that cool.
Thanks again for all the suggestions!
