As always thanks for the feedback zapyourtumor! After playtesting this deck some more I'm starting to see your point. I think, like you said, cutting the blinks entirely is the right choice and I should focus more on the drawing/scrying and dumping cards into my graveyard.
I am trying to keep this deck as budget as I can so unfortunately that puts Jace, the Mind Sculptor and maybe even Path to Exile out. The only reason I have some expensive lands in here is because I already had them sitting around haha. I will add a couple Terminus and play around with the Considers and Thought Scours to see which one I like best.
My thinking with Dictate of Kruphix was that it would let me draw into my deck further each turn so that I can draw past the miracle I would be putting back on top of my deck every turn. That's not an issue anymore with all the cantrips and scrying cards I have now so I'll take those out too. I would take Double Vision out as well but I think it's a lot of fun so for now I'm gonna leave them in. Also, my thinking with Test of Talents was that it got more value out of it than the average counter spell and anything it can't counter I can just bounce or kill anyways, but I think you're right about swapping it out for Counterspell. Although I'll still hold on to Test in my side board.
Thanks again for the suggestions and feedback, I always appreciate them coming from you! :D

Hey thanks, owenger! I think normally Serum Visions would be the better choice but Otherworldly Gaze can fill up my graveyard and help with setting up Bloodwater Entity with a wider selection of cards to choose from my graveyard. Plus it's basically two spells for the price of one card slot. I do agree that I do need more card drawing with my top deck manipulation so I am definitely going to add a few Brainstones.
I don't know how I missed adding in Temporal Mastery so that is going in immediately! I was thinking about running Terminus in the mainboard, but since the Bloodwater Entity is such a vital piece to this deck I decided it was better to run Devastation Tide instead so that way I'm only putting my Entity into my hand instead of losing him in my library.
I think you're right about the Ephemerates. I had those in there so I could blink Bloodwater Entity more reliably but I think 3 might be too many.
Thanks for the suggestions! They were very helpful :D

If you’re not too worried about budget, I think a really great card for this deck would be The Ozolith!

Thanks mdf64! My bad, I’m gonna change this to Historic haha.
I did actually have Geistlight Snare in the deck before but I took them out to add more Malevolent Hermit Flip cards, but maybe I should try cutting a few things and adding some back in again. I did also think about adding Skyclave Apparition but ran out of room. I’ll definitely experiment with skyclave and Shipwreck Sifters and see how it goes!
What are your thoughts on Otherworldly Gaze? Do you think I should cut it or keep it?
Thanks for the suggestions! I guess I’m gonna have to rework this a bit.
