The deck is fine adoe you sould add some equipent witch is much stronger in EDH because you allways have acces to a creature. But notice also that in EDH everything is about a broken general you can play fast and win with and Oona seems pretty slow, useless and random to me. also white is arguably the stronges color in highlander formats so i suppose you use one of the good WBU generals like Zur. If you want to stay RB (for witch there is acually no reason) you could use Styg or Wydwen. Oona wont see much games because of the high cc. at turn 6 your opponent has eighter won are has a ton of solutions for her.

At first glimps I also see some cards you can cut like gigadrowse or Thieves' Fortune. I cant tell if your combo will be to slow, but I think there are better combos in the format, those that include the general.

I'd also like to add that you cant play mizzium in an UB deck because of the red mana sybols...

You know that a EDH deck must have EXACTLY 100 cards, right? Confused

the deck is 100 cards. I changed to r/b/u legend to be able to play mizzium. My general is just as a finisher if i get endless turns(no need to waste deck space with him). In my testgames i constantly go of turn 5. I added some more mana accel to be a bit faster, but well i guess i have to play it more to understand it right. I just saw it didnt copy pasted all i fix it now ,)

Deck looks pretty good, I copied it into MWS, and it is thumping my attempt at an aluren deck over and over.

Couple thoughts:

Why no Tolarian Academy? you run artifact lands, artifact acceleration, seems like a good fit, to me

Also, just for fun/disruption, Jester's Cap. It's the only way my deck has beaten yours so far, yank the vault and the belcher. It should do similarly evil things against any combo deck.
