Creature — Illusion
You may have Spark Double enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature or planeswalker you control, except it enters with an additional +1/+1 counter on it if it's a creature, or an additional loyalty counter on it if it's a planeswalker, and it isn't legendary if that permanent is legendary.

Hi! My advice is replace some of the creatures with cheap or free counter magic. I would defiantly cut Wonder , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Spark Double and Throatseeker the rest is up to you. Don't under estimate free creatures without evasion like Memnite and Phyrexian Walker .
Some disruption spells i would recommend are Commandeer , Chain of Vapor , Flusterstorm . Their expensive so some budget options are Fatal Push , Misdirection , Murderous Cut , Spell Pierce . Also i would recommend some library manipulation like Spy Network , Ponder , Mission Briefing , Lim-Dul's Vault (its good but expensive). Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top are also great top deck manipulation but probably no worth the money.
Finally i would recommend some better high CMC cards to reveal with Yuriko activation's. Some of the cards i recommended already double as good reveals but you could add: Sea Gate Restoration Flip, Nexus of Fate , Time Warp . Their not budget friendly but there good. Take out two lands if you use Sea Gate Restoration and Agadeem's Awakening Flip for obvious reasons.
I hope this helps :D

Hey, some advice to help to lower the mana curve is to consolidate all the six, five and four CMC cards. Choose the better ones and cut the others for lower CMC instants. An example for each is choose two of the better cards here.
- Six drop: Shark Typhoon and Melek, Izzet Paragon
- Five drop: Double Vision and Prophetic Bolt
- Four drop other than Kalamax: Wilderness Reclamation and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
Counting Kalamax there's 19 four drops here, which is a lot and this many is making the mana curve higher. Of these four drops the better ones are: Kalamax, Wilderness Reclamation , Rashmi, Eternities Crafter , Primal Amulet Flip, Murmuring Mystic , Spark Double and Chemister's Insight . The others or at least half of the rest could be cut for lower CMC instants to reduce the mana curve.
If adding Reclaim + Regrowth then you don't really need any of the other higher CMC cards that can recur cards from your graveyard such as Surreal Memoir , Goblin Dark-Dwellers , Charmbreaker Devils , etc. These and others could be cut to help to reduce the mana curve. Solve the Equation is an excellent budget card with Kalamax since it can tutor for any instant or sorcery. It could replace a high CMC card since it can tutor the best instant in your deck. Equation and Regrowth are very good with Narset's Reversal since they're sorceries can repeatedly cast/copy with Reversal on your turns.
More ways to lower the mana curve is adding more low CMC instants that draw. This draw is fine without Kalamax and then after you control Kalamax equals a lot of draw for low mana cost. The low mana cost to amount of draw lets you potentially cast more instants on opponent's turns. To give you a better idea what I mean these are some greater than to less than card examples of potential changes to consider.
Other ideas are some low CMC instants that draw that also give Kalamax evasion, letting him more easily do combat damage to a player when he attacks. The drawback these spells have is you want to cast them on your turn since it's not ideal to cast them on an opponent's turn because then you won't get the evasion benefits for attacking.
Unleash Fury doesn't draw, but it can be a one instant kill spell with Kalamax for two mana. Doing 21 Commander damage to an opponent who didn't block Kalamax, but only if Kalamax has starting 5 or more power. Cast Fury, copy it with Kalamax which puts a counter on attacking tapped Kalamax giving him 6 power. The copy of Fury doubles the 6 power to 12 power and the original Fury doubles the 12 power to 24 power.
With Kalamax a Fork such as Expansion / Explosion is a like a supercharged Unleash Fury . Expansion can give tapped Kalamax infinite power with +1/+1 counters that stay on Kalamax as well as other value.
I offer more advice in another comment about how you could add more complexity to your deck with Forks.

To some extent Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a bit counterproductive and can be difficult to use in the deck. The effect causes a rather large up swing in life for you (at a minimum +9 life and -3 to everyone else), which will almost always mean you no longer can trigger Dethrone reliably. Being able to more strategically gain life via things like Basilisk Collar or Shadowspear is more useful since we want to only be ahead on life after attacking, ideally.
The mass life drain on Gary can be useful, but it's hard to repeatedly trigger it unless you have something like Spark Double or Unspeakable Symbol in play to pair with Gary so that the life gain doesn't make it impossible to get counters on him.
So overall Gary is ok, but for 5 mana its a few too many hoops to jump through in my mind if you want to get repeated, consistent value

I really like this deck, but have you considered adding some copying effects? Things like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , Double Major ,or Spark Double . Overall I think I'll use this deck list as a base if/when I make my Koma edh deck.

Hello. Looks like you are just getting into the game with an intro deck and want some suggestions on how to upgrade your deck. I will try to give you some upgrades that will hopefully not be outside your budget.
First suggestion for your deck would be to focus on being either a deck that wants to mill or be an aggressive deck. Since the only card you are running that allows you to mill is Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , we should probably consider focusing on the +1/+1 counter theme you have going.
Considering you are running cards that have a relatively high mana cost on average, I would suggest adding some ramp cards. There are three cards I would highly suggest.
Cultivate - Searches for two lands and puts one into play right away making it so you will be able to play a majority of your cards from then on. Suggest adding 4 copies to the deck.
Llanowar Elves - is a great 1 drop creature that will help boost your ability to cast spells.
Nissa, Who Shakes the World - A strong planeswalker that will make your "Forests" tap for extra mana giving you a large boost in your mana generation and allow you to transform your lands into aggressive creatures that use +1/+1 counters. These lands will now also benefit from your proliferate functions. If you create a copy of it with Spark Double then the mana production passive is increased even more. This rare does cost about $6 as of this post and is the most expensive card I will try to recommend. Would suggest 2 copies at least but would say you would be fine adding more for the deck as it can runaway with games by itself sometimes.
I would also suggest trading the Simic Guildgate out for Rimewood Falls if you get decide to pickup Nissa, Who Shakes the World for the deck as they do count as forests. This means that even if you do that them for blue mana, you will still get one green mana when used for mana. You will also be able to search your deck with Nisa's final skill to add them to the battlefield which can be convenient.
Hope these suggestions help. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the suggestions or might be looking for different style of cards to adjust your deck for the mill angle.
Side note - You should mark your deck as casual format instead of standard for the site if you want to make it so your deck list doesn't light up in red as standard is a format for the most recent sets of cards.
