I'm looking to sell the cards, but if anyone has any good modern trades I'm down to check them out.

I have a Xyris, the Writhing Storm deck..Snakes on a Planeswalker - Xyris EDH swarm its one of my favorites to play. I like that you have gone heavy into mill. Altar of the Brood ends up being one of my favorite win cons...
Either way, I love seeing another snakes deck.. I will be stealing a couple of your ideas i think :)

Blaksteele Really nice protoype. Niv-Mizzet, Parun may be one of the most fun commanders in EDH. I really think you have a solid prototype here. Definitely play test it to see what direction you want to take this beast.
A few suggestions:
Niv-Mizzet, Parun loves when you draw cards and casts spells. I would recommend playing less creatures and more spells that net raw card draw. Cards like Oneirophage seem great, but aren't as valuable as triggering Niv-Mizzet's ability. The same is true with creatures like Tolarian Kraken or Nadir Kraken where you have to spend resources on top of drawing cards to trigger an additional effect.
Instead of running the extra creatures, I would trust more in Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Fill your deck with cheap spells that draw cards, and in turn trigger Niv-Mizzet, Parun 's ability to draw extra cards and do damage. Opt , Brainstorm , Wheel and Deal , Windfall , Ponder are all great examples that exploit Niv-Mizzy so well.
*Protection and Interaction*
Niv-Mizzet, Parun 's greatest weaknesses are his mana cost (3 red + 3 blue) and protecting him. This is truly a deck that will probably not win without its commander on the field, so you really need to protect him. You should include a package of instants that will allow you to interact with your opponents' attempts to remove him. Lazotep Plating is a cheap option. Basic control magic will also be very helpful (and each one triggers Niv-Mizzy). Counterspell , Delay , Narset's Reversal , Wizard's Retort etc are all good and affordable options. Consider removing Jaya, Venerated Firemage and Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded to make room for them. These planeswalker seem good, but will almost never net you as much value as other instant/sorceries will.
*Manabase and Mana-fixing*
As noted above, getting down Niv-Mizzet will be tough if you can't mana fix. If you are running 40 lands, make sure you have a way to fix your mana. You're going to need 3 Red and 3 Blue to cast Niv-Mizzet. In a basic land only build, to get Niv-Mizzy out on curve, you'll need to make sure you never miss a land drop and you drop down the right land each drop. Most games you'll lose, will probably be because you can't cast Niv-Mizzy. I'd add tools that make sure that happens. Arcane Signet is an easy add. Expedition Map as well.
As you build your mana base, focus on lands that don't come into play tap but can produce any color mana.
Really great starting place! You got it down to a solid win condition, you have a clear vision on how you're going to get there, and you have themes that support the plan. All you need know is focusing down on those themes a little more and finding more consistent paths to success. Well done for your second build. (Remember to include your manabase, even if its just filled with basic lands... because right now, it looks like you're playing 40 lands. With an average CMC of 3.5, that seems like a lot.)

Torgr thanks for your list. I will check it out. I, in the other hand, have just started played Nekusar and i already have a blast. Wheel of Misfortune is a little weird, i don't think i like it. Wheel and Deal is powerful!

Hey, I got a Nekusar deck that I've been constantly updating as new sets come out. Probably has some cards that you'd find real useful in your deck. It's Punch You in the Neku.

Those were great suggestions...
Wheel and Deal I originally discounted because I don't get to draw a full hand, but have noticed that really doesn't matter to me so much with this deck. Is now on my list to re-add.
Prosperity is also on the possible list now. I like the idea of others paying for the Minds Aglow, but would be nice to have an extra.
Sudden Impact was on its way out of the deck. Already moved it from active to maybe. The couple times I got it I could always find something better to spend 4 mana on. But the idea of having a 1 version is kinda nice.
Folio of Fancies is probably a no, only because it ends up being a mana sink, and I almost always have a fist full of cards.

Nice deck. +1 from me. I always like token decks. I would include Overrun for Overwhelm. Normaly you want all of your creatures to attack so convoke doesn't help that much and trample is a nice addition. Maybe even Return of the Wildspeaker because it is so flexible.
Wheel and Deal would be an awesome card for the deck.
Folio of Fancies could be a second win-option for the deck.
