Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, you may copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.
Swarm Intelligence Discussion

Actually, if you copy Temporal Extortion , your opponent does not get the chance to counter it by paying half their life. Temporal Extortion's "pay life to counter" clause is a cast trigger, and since the copies are not (usually) cast, that trigger will not be added to the stack on top of them.
Fun fact, if you've got a Swarm Intelligence and a Narset's Reversal , this allows you to take infinite turns with TE (or with any other extra turn spell. Cast TE, copy it. Cast Narset's Reversal targeting it, then have the copy of Narset's reversal target the original Reversal. Copy resolves, bouncing original Reversal to hand, and copying it - new copy targets original TE, which is bounced to hand and copied. You end up losing no cards, and taking two extra turns, during which you can repeat the cycle.

This might sound crazy but would you consider Possibility Storm ? It would cause your general to trigger twice (since both the original spell and new spell are cast), and has super sweet synergy with Swarm Intelligence . Also I think the card embodies what it means to be Izzet haha

If I play Apex of Power while I have either Swarm Intelligence or Reverberate to copy it, will the "if Apex of power is cast from your hand" still apply on the copies. It is not very clear for me in the rules 706: Copying objects.

First off you need about 10-12 more lands and Gifts Ungiven is banned in commander. Ditch the 2nd Sure Strike then go buy a Pyromancer's Goggles , Primal Amulet Flip and Swarm Intelligence . You need to cut some cards to make room for the added lands. I'm not gonna point you in any direction with your deck cuz it's kinda all over the place and I don't know what you're after beyond copying instants/sorceries but I'd definitely ditch Kozilek's Sentinel and narrow your overall aim of the deck...is it prowess with buffs? tokens? countering? board control?...
Some other cards worth suggesting: Dualcaster Mage . Naru Meha, Master Wizard . God-Eternal Kefnet . Echo Mage . The Mirari Conjecture . Jori En, Ruin Diver . Mirrorpool . Dual Casting . There are a few instants/sorceries that copy your next instant/sorcery as well.
Good luck with your brew!
