Note: Brainstorm isn't modern legal

Your deck has 20 creatures that have payoff for drawing cards and casting spells, but only 17 actual spells. I would run 16 creatures tops and replace them with more instants/sorceries.

Archmage Ascension synergizes with all your card draw, but it's a complete nonbo with your card draw trigger effects like Chasm Skulker, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, and The Locust God. Also, it's really slow.

I'd also probably cut Kumena's Awakening because a conditional 4-mana draw an extra card each turn isn't that good.

For the spells, Radical Idea is bad. To replace Brainstorm you could maybe run the new cantrip we are getting in MID, Consider. Sinister Sabotage doesn't really cut it in modern, I'd suggest Counterspell, Archmage's Charm, and Spell Pierce. Expressive Iteration might also be good here, although it doesn't draw cards. Maybe Serum Visions.

Sevelantis: Teferi, Master of Time can't go in a BW deck, and 5 mana for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria isn't too much in commander. i also wouldn't consider Dovin's Veto one of the most powerful counter spells in magic. better counter spells that come to mind that i don't see in this list include Force of Will , Force of Negation , Archmage's Charm , Absorb , Sinister Sabotage , Dissolve

RaidenShogun69 Whirlwind Denial is just as high in MV as Disallow and Sinister Sabotage but does far better in countering practically everything on the stack.

There are better counter spells in pioneer, like Disallow or Sinister Sabotage

TriusMalarky are you talking about burn or creature aggro? Burn just goes to the dome.

You could replace Thought Scour for Strategic Planning, this way you make sure you mill the cards you want to mill and don't get screwed by chance. Sinister Sabotage or Counterspell could be a replecement for Remand. I do think Balaam_'s idea of adding Thoughtseize is very beneficial to your deck, it alows you to create a safer environement for Murktide Regent.

Quench is the best 2 mana option, but Essence Scatter and Negate can be used in the sideboard. Disallow is by far the best 3 mana option, with Ionize after it, unless you have no card draw or top deck manipulation, in which case you should look at Sinister Sabotage and Dissolve

the best option at 2 mana is Quench , but you can definitely use Essence Scatter and Negate in the sideboard. Disallow is by far the best 3 mana option. Ionize follows right behind it imo, unless you don't have any card draw or top deck manipulation in the deck in which case you may want to look at Sinister Sabotage and Dissolve . Absorb would be on the bottom of my list unless you're playing against aggro and burn.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds: you can use the gatherer to check a cards legality.
