If you would gain life, you gain twice that much life instead.
If you would draw a card except the first one you draw in each of your draw steps, draw two cards instead.

Alhammarret's Archive Discussion

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks
Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.
that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)
and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

Alhammarret's Archive for Thought Reflection cheaper mana cost and better. Guttersnipe is a great card for spellslinger deck could replace the niv's. I would say you have too many 6 drop creatures.
Young Pyromancer is good as well for some chump blockers. Jace's Sanctum is good for cost reduction and cycling through your top.

Looking good. I like the gods idea.
A few thoughts:
Alhammarret's Archive costs a lot and doesn't do anything until something else interacts with it. I'd rather see you have Recurring Insight in here, personally. It has better synergy with Kess and is also a cheaper card, dollar-wise. And it will almost always draw you a lot more.
Gem of Becoming is pretty slow for what it does. Wayfarer's Bauble is a great T1 drop, and you can sac it when you need it, especially after holding mana open for instants you don't cast. Burnished Hart is also very good.
Also, what are your sac outlets like Blood Bairn for?
It'll be fun to see how each of our decks play out.

Many ways to go with Selvala, she is a super fun commander. If you like to ramp into big things, you could consider adding some more mana elves, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Priest of Titania and do a pseudo-tribal theme. I don't necessarily recommend doing this to get infinite combos rolling, but I see you already have Paradox Engine so I highly recommend Umbral Mantle as well. If you pair this or other untap effects with Selvala, you can make even more life/mana/cards from parley. Umbral Mantle also goes for infinite mana quite easily with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. You could add more to the lifegain theme to maximize Archangel of Thune by adding things like Alhammarret's Archive or Rhox Faithmender too. My list maximizes the control elements while making use of the lifegain somewhat. Check it out if you like.

@tjgangl: Thanks for your input! This deck doesn't really care about which equipment ends up in my hands though. I need to get Sram, Senior Edificer out and try to cycle through my deck (preferably also having Puresteel Paladin and/or Alhammarret's Archive). Win is achieved by either getting 1. Aetherflux Reservoir online, 2. attacking with a huge Paladin (Blade of Selves for Multiplayer) or 3. continued activations of Hankyu/Wolfhunter's Quiver using Paradox Engine.
Everything else either helps assembling combo pieces or providing enough mana.

Thank you felletje!
I have taken out some of these suggestions including Tithe Drinker, Exsanguinate (instead of Debt to the Deathless, and Alhammarret's Archive. Then I kind was thinking I kind of wanted to try out Basilisk Collar in here because it seems like a lot of fun with edgar or Olivia, and I feel it's at least worth a try in the deck once I build this.
I will be continuing to update this decklist up until the release of commander 2017, and by then I hope to buy the precon and also I will be doing few trades to get a Bloodline Keeper, Kalastria Highborn and a few others, so I hope to try and get some gameplay in with this deck hopefully then as well.
