Return target instant or sorcery card from your graveyard to your hand. this deals damage equal to that card's converted mana cost/mana value to each creature your opponents control. Exile this.

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

Hey! You've given a suggestion on one of my decks, so I've thought I could return the favor. :)
I'm not sure how casual/competitive this deck is aimed to be, so I will give suggestions for both.
For a more competitive deck, I'd suggest:
Forks (Increasing Vengeance, Bonus Round, Galvanic Iteration, Refuse / Cooperate) - From my experience the forks which can be cast from the graveyard are really good as you they can wait for you there until you're casting something big.
The first three help you create disgusting solitaire turns while the last one may be the easiest win with Mizzix there is.
For a more casual deck, I'd suggest:
not playing infinite combos :D
limit the number of the "mana spells" and extra turns (Mizzix is ridiculously powerful for a casual meta and solitaire turns are annoying)
some flavorful permanents (my suggestions: Metallurgic Summonings (and other token-making permanents), Thousand-Year Storm, Primal Amulet Flip, Sorcerer Class, Sentinel Tower, Erratic Cyclops, Melek, Izzet Paragon <- not that great but fun imo)
General card suggestions:
Mizzix's Mastery, Epic Experiment, Chaos Warp, Commit / Memory, Volcanic Vision, Invert / Invent, Prophetic Bolt, Frantic Search, Pore Over the Pages, Rewind, Solve the Equation and once again Bonus Round (this card is seriously good)
I'm sorry for the long comment in case you didn't wish for suggestions. Just wanted to help. :^)

You can go ahead and replace some of the more expensive cards like taking out Personal Tutor and Time Spiral. There are some changes as well that I might reccomend such as the Wheel of Fortune could be switched out to Valakut Awakening Flip so that other players don't get resources or just Windfall. Gamble could be a Solve the Equation. Imo these don't change the power dynamics pretty much at all while hugely reducing the deck's cost. Cut off Mana Crypt and it should be very affordable
On what cards to cut, a few come to mind immediately. Portent is pretty bad, Mana Flare should be taken out immediately. Ruby Medallion, Mystic Speculation, Long-Term Plans (this should honestly be Solve the Equation in my list as well), Muddle the Mixture is played only for the potential transmutes so it can be cut out, Twincast has little to no use in comparison to Reverberate. Dream Cache works well with Melek out as a potential value engine but it can be cut out as well.
I'd probably slot in AEtherize, Blasphemous Act, Disrupt Decorum, Reins of Power and maybe even test out some other 2-in-1 wipes that gets you cards back like Volcanic Vision, there are other fun cards like Blustersquall which enables you to tap an opponent's board in their upkeep but I'll leave thinking those to you.

Awesome deck! I really like spellslinger decks, and playing this seems really fun.
However, considering how many instants and sorceries you have and the wheel theme, i'm surprised you don't have any graveyard recursion or synergy.
some cards that you could consider are: Bond of Insight, Call to Mind, Flood of Recollection, Mystic Retrieval, Pull from the Deep, Relearn, Shreds of Sanity, Backdraft Hellkite, Past in Flames, Volcanic Vision and The Mirari Conjecture
some of those exile themselves and since you have so much draw power that might actually be a downside. If i were to cut something for those I would maybe one of those shuffle effects.
mnemonic deluge and diluvian primordial are pretty funny, though kinda expensive. Imagine casting a wheel and then "going shopping" for spells, i highly recommend it. though these exile, so if you loop your deck you can't cast the spell you coped again.
i don't know how often you would be able to kill or do something significant with Spiraling Embers, but i thought it would be a fun inclusion.
here's a few cards for copying instants and sorceries:
Bonus Round, Insidious Will, Reverberate, Thousand-Year Storm, Swarm Intelligence and Twincast. twincast, reverberate and insidious will double as interaction, and you could also consider Narset's Reversal
sorry for the wall of text, just got excited about brewing so i wanted to suggest a bunch of cards. I hope that this at least gave you some ideas.

You can ramp quite a bit using artifacts, but you have so many X spells for a Boros deck! They also don't do anything with freebies like Wildfire Eternal (or copy spells, you're pretty unlikely to hit critical mana where they double effectively), so pick a couple good ones and call it a day. Drop a few of the "whenever damage is dealt to this creature, do stuff" like Stormwild Capridor and Truefire Captain... you have enough hoops to jump through as is. Ritual of Rejuvenation, Volcanic Vision, and Horizon Stone need to go. Consider Battlefield Forge and Talisman of Conviction! You'll have life to spare. Another thing. You have all of these "deal a bunch of damage to all creatures" effects, which is great, but you also have a bunch of "prevent noncombat damage that would be dealt to your creatures" effects too, which sorta defeats the purpose of all of your "whenever damage is dealt to this creature, do stuff" creatures. PLEASE listen when I say: pick a strategy and lean into it!

Super sweet deck. I had the idea to do a Illuna + Omniscience deck, googled it, and found your list. I've got a couple suggestions though.
I think you could use more incidental token production to give you mutate targets. Cards like Lazotep Plating, Emergent Sequence, Growth Spasm, Alrund's Epiphany or Stolen by the Fae could be great ways to create tokens for you to mutate onto, outside of man lands or GSZing for Dryad Arbor or Crop Rotating for Khalni Garden. The more expensive man lands like Lumbering Falls, Wandering Fumarole and Raging Ravine feel especially clunky here as 10 mana to activate them plus mutate is pretty steep. Another angle could be adding a Dwarven Mine, and maybe a Sheltered Thicket and second basic mountain to go along with it, so that your Mire, Mesa, Tarn and Foothills can produce a creature token as well. Kher Keep could be good for this too as it's a repeatable effect.
It seems to me that you don't have enough ways to deterministically win once you get the Omniscience down. Intuition, Gamble and Mystical Tutor + a cantrip, seem like your only ways to reliably find Ignite Memories, and Intuition only gets into your graveyard. You definitely need at least 2 Regrowth / Reclaim effects so that your Intuition always gets you what you want. Bala Ged Recovery Flip, Mystic Retrieval, and Experimental Overload (since it can make a token too) are all cool options there. Playing those cards to support Intuition also allows you to play Gifts Ungiven and put together similar packages with it. Probably the best card to use to go off with Omniscience is Petals of Insight since it makes the storm count infinitely large and finds you your Ignite Memories all in one card. You could use cards like Solve the Equation or even Eerie Procession to find the Petals since it's an arcane spell. There's also Merchant Scroll which doesn't get you to the sorcery Petals directly, but it can find Firemind's Foresight, which then finds Intuition along with maybe some interaction. Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Faithless Looting and Frantic Search all seem fine here as they're useful both before and after you get your Omni down. Spells like Time Twister and Time Spiral seem less good though, as there's a fair chance you could fizzle after casting them even with an Omniscience out. Enter the Infinite, Praetor's Counsel, Insurrection, Volcanic Vision, or Mnemonic Deluge also work as finishers if you want to do something bigger and splashier with Omniscience out.
Lastly, Sea Gate Restoration Flip, Valakut Awakening Flip, and Silundi Vision Flip all could be sensible additions to the mana base that double as ways to start go off with Omni. Not to mention Bala Ged Recovery that I mentioned before as part of the Intuition/Gifts package. Once you start playing any number of those spell lands, it probably then becomes a good idea to include a Gruul Turf or similar land to open up the line of Crop Rotating into a bounce land to return a spell land to hand. Once you're on this land package, Hour of Promise starts to look pretty appealing, as it can find bounce + spell land to start and Omniscience chain, or any number of various creature lands if you need something to mutate onto.
