Looks great! I've built a similar deck and it's very good, here's some recommended upgrades or possible swaps for fun:

1) Crash Through can be traded for all/a few Expedite to work better with with Adeliz, the Cinder Wind and Harmonic Prodigy, albeit a little slower.

2) Balmor, Battlemage Captain adds to the whole prowess mechanic and buffs your board like Adeliz; I would replace some Umara Mystic with a few of him.

3) Viashino Pyromancer is a cheaper verison of Ghitu Journeymage and is better unless you're doing multi-player.

4) Step Through is a 2 mana tutor that costs almost nothing! Sadly it doesn't trigger prowess etc.

5) Soul-Scar Mage is a bit pricier but would be a nice one drop.

6) Naru Meha, Master Wizard and Docent of Perfection  Flip are also good lords to consider.

7) Talrand, Sky Summoner is a good budget swap for Archmage Emeritus for people who don't own any!

Cheers m8!

As someone who's been brewing/playing Inalla for some time now, I'd recommend that you consider includes like Spellseeker, Snapcaster Mage, Dualcaster Mage & Sea Gate Stormcaller.

I'd also recommend that you not run any trigger doubters outside of Naban, Dean of Iteration & Harmonic Prodigy. Paying more than 2 mana for that effect isn't worth it, especially when those options can be easily tutored up with Vedalken AEthermage & Step Through.

Also consider other value pieces that are dirt cheap at the time of this writing like Necropotence, Dark Confidant, Mystical Tutor, Gamble, Sneak Attack & Cloudstone Curio. You really don't want to miss any of these, they will go back up in price sooner than you think.

Check out my own list if you want: SPELLMANCER (INALLA)

Let me know if you want more suggestions or have any questions!

Wizards were my 1st Commander archetype! Here some recs to help you get to, execute & get more value out of your stated wincons a bit faster:

Creatures: Stonybrook Banneret, Snapcaster Mage, Sea Gate Stormcaller, Micromancer, Archmage of Echoes & Wandering Archaic  Flip

Artifacts: Jeweled Amulet, Springleaf Drum, Pyre of Heroes, Urza's Incubator, Sensei's Divining Top & Cryptic Gateway

Enchantments: Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, Parallel Thoughts, Kindred Discovery & Virtue of Knowledge

Instants: Long-Term Plans & Intuition (just proxy it, who cares lol)

Sorceries: Personal Tutor, Solve the Equation, Step Through, Fabricate, Merchant Scroll

Lands: Cavern of Souls

Incorporating some of the Tutors and card draw & Ramp here will get you there imho. Let me know what you think!

I think the deck isn't consistent enough because it doesn't have enough draw and/or tutors. Brainstorm is one of the best draw spells out there, but it's because of the way it interacts with shuffle effects such as Scalding Tarn or Mystical Tutor. This is because you draw 3, put 2 back, and then shuffle the deck-> ergo you are not drawing the 2 cards you put back. However, if we're not running lots of these shuffle effects it basically just cycles itself, because you're stuck with redrawing those two cards again. In this case I'd prioritize cards like Ponder & Preordain over Brainstorm.

That said, this seems to be a control deck. Win con is to get Jhoira of the Ghitu into play, then suspend a big spell to win the game. So the question of the deck becomes: How do we survive until we get her in play, and until the spell goes off, and how do we make sure we get her?
Survive: We're U/R so we have an almost overwhelming amount of options here. You could write a book on counterspells (Counterspell stops everything, Remand for tempo-draw if your opponents tend to play large spells themselves, Daze if you need the speed, Dispel is crazy good at protecting your stuff, etc)) We've also got nutty bounce spells like Echoing Truth, the classic Unsummon, and the mother of everything: the Cryptic Command Since we're red I am somewhat perplexed that we aren't running 4x Lightning Bolt. It stops most early-mid game threats dead. We already have Propaganda x2, so that'll help us as well.

How to get her in play: Well, we're U/R, so our tutor options are somewhat limited, but off the top of my head we have: Step Through, Vedalken AEthermage, & Drift of Phantasms.

To make room, I'd recommend cutting Clockspinning, Jhoira's Timebug, Fury Charm. They don't do anything unless we have Jhoira of the Ghitu in play already, and if we don't they're just dead cards in our hand. Our suspend cards will go off a little slower, but if we have enough blue fuckery we should be able to survive long enough.

Land suggestions: If you can, see if you can get your hands on Steam Vents or Sulfur Falls if you're on a budget. Sanctum of Ugin could also help you get more late game threats in case one or more get put out of commission.

PS: Jokulhaups could be used to replace Obliterate. It's can be countered, but it can also be much more easily hardcasted.

Poppet Stitcher  Flip would be insane here due to the ability on the flip side: "Creature tokens you control lose all abilities.." This means that Poppet Factory + Wilhelt + a sac outlet + any zombie is infinite sacks. You could also include cards to fetch Poppet Stitcher like Drift of Phantasms, Dimir Machinations, Vedalken AEthermage, and Step Through.

You might like these too: Pitiless Plunderer, Distant Melody, Carrion Feeder

Cool deck! You might like these: Drift of Phantasms, Merchant Scroll, Step Through, Vedalken AEthermage, Apprentice Wizard, Springleaf Drum, Sea Gate Oracle, Augur of Bolas, Repulse, Drag Under, Capsize, Salvager of Secrets, Mnemonic Wall, Scrivener, Rush of Knowledge.

Also I noticed you're running Treasure Cruise, which is banned in pauper. If your group doesn't care about the banlist, you might also consider running Peregrine Drake as it combos with things like Displace + Archaeomancer.
