: Add . When that mana is spent to cast a red instant or sorcery spell, copy that spell and you may choose new targets for the copy.

Thanks for the advice carpecanum! I didn’t put Rosheen Meanderer in because in my opinion it would be a bit one dimensional in that it would only aid me if I was about to win, and would lose a lot of its functionality if I was behind.
Copying Mob Rule like that wouldn’t work because when a modal spell is copied, you aren’t given a chance to make new selections for it. The one you chose stays as the default with no option to change it.
The Pyromancer's Goggles are definitely an interesting option though, since they offer the capability to copy every turn with no recurring cost, which could strengthen the deck’s preparatory stages. I’ll have to decide what to cut to open up a spot for it, possibly Dragonlair Spider, as I’ve found it to be a bit slow. Thanks for your help!

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.
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 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.
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

Ah the ol' thrum thrum! I can see how that can be big.
3x38 is only 114 though, so wondering how you'd kill off a 3x40=120 typical pod table (usually with a lifegain player in there somewhere) in the same turn?
Could probably drop 2 lands to add 2 more Dragon's Approach or even better one of the spell doubling artifacts or Pyromancer's Gauntletthat you can tutor out like Spellweaver Helix, Mirari, Twinning Staff, Pyromancer's Goggles or a storm finisher like a Grapeshot or Galvanic Relay or Fiery Encore or Ignite Memories or something?
Or maybe Feldon of the Third Path to copy out Hoarding Dragon from the yard?

Veyran, Voice of Duality would give Mizzix extra counters if they're both out. And Harmonic Prodigy and Pyromancer's Goggles are also nice too. Shatterskull Smashing Flip is a nice removal/X spell, and Valakut Awakening Flip is a nice wheel effect, you're not discarding cards and only you get to draw them

Your first two points are correct, So I am not going to address anything you said in them. I will address the rest of the question in the order the ideas are presented. Though it isn't going to be a nice ordered list, because some of your numbered points are mixing cards that operate differently.
Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind triggers off of drawing cards, not casting spells. The effect of the spell triggered Niv, not the casting of the spell, so Veyran, Voice of Duality has no interaction. Baral is the same. As is anything that doesn't trigger from casting a spell.
No cards in MtG need an extra cost to trigger. They trigger and go on the stack, and then have an optional cost to have an effect. Lunar Mystic and Mirari will trigger twice. You can pay as each trigger resolves to get the effect. You can pay for none, one, or both.
An instant or sorcery that triggers Knowledge Pool or Eye of the Storm will trigger them twice. Knowledge Pool requires you to exile the spell to have an effect, so only the first to resolve will have an effect, though there will be two triggers. Eye of the Storm doesn't require you to have exiled the spell to get the effect, so both triggers will have an effect.
Spellweaver Volute is an interesting case. I will look up the rules to copying objects that have left the expected zone and get back to you on it. My gut feeling is that 2 copies of the instant will be made.
