AEther Adept Discussion

I see that you usea a lot of expensive spells, sure they are cool but you need even more mana ramp, you can try Fertilid Sakura-Tribe Scout and for explosive tokens (experience counters) "maybe" Snake Basket or Fungal Sprouting Sure they are risky to use, but if you do not use counter spells I guess your game environment does not have much creature hate :D also if you are using Coiling Oracle the Wirewood Symbiote is a must! for card draw you can try the new: Beast Whisperer, imagine cast like 3 times in a row the Shrieking Drake X3 experience counters and cards! the sylvan library is a amazing addition..
cards to considerate: Spike Feeder gain lost of life, but is situational what you want is to attack. Fauna Shaman Throw your manadorks in late game and help you look for the hulk Spellskite good blocker at the beginning and help protect your ezuri Glen Elendra Archmage the philosophy of this deck is to win with fast and strong punches, but you need to protect your board while you build the experience counters, this car is expensive $ but it's worth every penny, it can make you win the game. Inkmoth Nexus infect support Edric, Spymaster of Trest maybe for card draw?
What to cut and why:
all the cards that cost more that five mana...just because they are to slow and predictable (except) Cyclonic Rift , at least cobra trap and protean hulk look's fun.
Lightning Greaves: amazing card but the shroud prevent you from putting counters on the equipped creature.
Glimmer of Genius: lot's of better card draw out there, the same to Fact or Fiction.¯_(?)_/¯
Phanharmonicon: cool card!! but slow :(
Broodhatch Nantuko: I do not feel that it is effective enough.

Rite of Replication kicked targeting is a pretty nice vela finisher. I realize it isn't infinite, but 30 dmg to each opponent is real strong.
Infinite sacrifice can be way strong, and I would suggest looking into mikaeus the unhallowed combos.

I see you're running Bloodline Necromancer. If you're looking for a good and easy way to win, I'd thoroughly recommend finding a place for a Ashnod's Altar. Aside from being a great sac outlet that can really ramp you ahead with all of the token copies you make, it goes infinite with the Bloodline Necromancer, making infinite copies of it with haste so you can swarm the board (or cast Inalla and use her ability if someone is using Ghostly Prison or whatever). It's also a very solid option when you've got a bunch of wizards with counters on them and a Marchesa out.
On the subject of counters, I'd also suggest finding a place for Sage of Fables and Metallic Mimic if you can, as those can give your wizards a little more kick for combat and all, which is generally one of their weaker aspects.
I don't have my decklist online yet, but I built mine primarily as a tribal reanimator deck that abuses creature sacs and ETBS, then reanimates them to do it again. One of my typical lines of play involves putting out a Direfleet Ravager, making a copy of him, saccing both, cast something like Animate Dead on it, creating another copy, and by that point the table is drained enough that even my smaller wizards can swing for lethal. I also run Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding, as those reeeeeally help the deck have some longevity. A lot of my deck also involves looting, for which I'd recommend Champion of Wits as well, as that'll move things along quicker for you.
Spellseeker has also done some work as of late. Vedalken AEthermage is the tutor wizard you mentioned and well worth the include. AEther Adept is also a good choice as well, making for some solid tempo swings. Anathemancer can sometimes be a great finisher if you can find ways to reanimate it. Sower of Temptation is also good, as you can steal a few creatures off of it (plus you can oftentimes sac them if you've got a sac outlet and they try to kill the sower).
Seeing that you also have a Dualcaster Mage, I'd encourage getting Ghostly Flicker for the deck. If you cast flicker on whaever, then flash in the dualcaster mage, you can go infinite and make enough wizards to kill the board. Same for Naru Meha, Master Wizard with a kicked Rite of Replication (the copies will die due to legendary, but you can make infinite copies of every creature on the board with all the ETBs).

I'm not really a pauper player, but AEther Adept maybe?

Nice Start. My version centered around Sage of Hours infinite turns, but this is way more kind-hearted. I recently retired him because he was very two-note (either infect or infinite turns). I also ran Man-o'-War, Shrieking Drake and AEther Adept with Aluren for infinite experience. Another infinite Experience combo was Cloud of Faeries or Peregrine Drake with Deadeye Navigator.
Now that the price has come down a bit Devoted Druid is a nasty little trick. Also, Deranged Hermit is 5 Experience for 5 which can really change a game. Panharmonicon is a neccesity as it makes your commander's etb skill trigger twice (and your ten creatures with etb triggers twice, too!)
