There be dragons! :D So... you need quick mana for him?
Then you need Power Artifact or if you have Ancient Tomb play that and Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond instead of one of the above lands to play Rings of Brighthearth, with combo Gemstone Array to convert your mana into one mana of any color and go infinite
or Argothian Elder, a land to tap for green and Elvish Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Sol Ring, or Mana Crypt, and Exploration Azusa, Lost but Seeking if you didnt have Elvish Spirit Guide in hand. and Concordant Crossroads in hand go infinte with it
play a Forest and with the mana play Eladamri's Vineyard /Exploration for one more green mana at the begining of your next main phase play Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl on your Forest, then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond of another mana using that mana play Mana Vault then play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, or Mox Diamond one of them you didnt play then play Freed from the Real/Pemmin's Aura
Above isn't from originally me, I just happened to be looking at it when I saw your deck :D

Sgtpopnfreash First of all, thanks a lot for your comments!
I don't actually have Timetwister, Candelabra of Tawnos, Flusterstorm, Copy Artifact, Volcanic Island, Underground Sea and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, but if I had them, I would certainly use them in this deck.
I'll tell you why I like having Faithless Looting in my deck. 1) it enables me to trade three(including itself) cards from my hand for two new other cards, while discarding lands or cards that i'll be able to cast later with Kess, dissident mage , such as Mind's Desire, 2) It interacts well in some Doomsday piles that I like to settle sometimes, 3) It helps me to trigger Threshold for Cabal Ritual. Cephalid Coliseum have a similar effect enabling me to trade three cards from my hand for three new cards, while it enters untapped and taps for blue mana.
Mizzix's Mastery and Paradox Engine are too powerful for not to use them. With Paradox Engine on the field I can easely storm out and with a tutor or enough draws I can quickly close the game. It also helps me to avoid some stax effects, which my playgroup is consistently improving. I'm also considering adding Vandalblast or By Force to deal with tax and stax artifacts.
Please let me know your thoughts on my comment.

Hey this is quite similar to my DD storm Kess list some suggestions I have. Misdirection is pretty high CMC for Ad Nauseam you could probably cut that. Some ad naus decks dont even run Force of Will but I think that is stupid. Faithless Looting isnt as good as some other draw spells, Night's Whisper or Chart A Course would both probably be better choices for your Doomsday piles. Phyrexian Metamorph is also very high mana costed for an Ad Nauseam deck, maybe think about Copy Artifact. Now Paradox Engine is interesting but I really haven't found it to be necessary for Kess decks specifically, between Yawgmoth's Will, the black rituals, High Tide and Kess herself you dont need Paradox Engine for more mana. Its just excessive. Other than that the deck looks pretty good I would add a few more Islands and probably cut Cavern of Souls and Cephalid Coliseum at least maybe some of the orchards too. Mizzix's Mastery, Thought Vessel and Fabricate all seem like iffy choices but they are fine if you don't have other cards.
Here is my kess deck if you would like to check it out. Kess Doomsday Storm

Alhammarret's Archive, Faithless Looting, Cephalid Coliseum and Memory Jar would all be good inclusions. Maybe add a couple more duel lands? Steam Vents, Spirebluff Canal, Sulfur Falls, Shivan Reef to name a few. Otherwise this looks pretty solid.

Some budget land ideas as well as some ideas to support your largely basic landbase, starting with the latter
same goes for basic islands and High Tide, easily ramping you to victory at very low $ and mana cost
Some budget yet value non-basics to consider:
