Hmmm, so basically change the red for blue. I see what you're getting at. It actually wouldn't change the deck that much. Mayael is basically just a mana dump if I have nothing better to do. Her hit rate is about 50% or less, so she's actually not even that critical as a commander. Channel is actually the star card of the deck. Channel + Emrakul on turn 2, game over. That's a winning move in Vintage, let alone casual.
I think I'm going to stay with red because of Godsire and Spellbreaker Behemoth. Hard to say which is better between Lightning Bolt and Counterspell, but going for the full Timmy seems like the way to go with both Shards and Eldrazi. Red also gives me Combustible Gearhulk, which can throw down a lot of damage with all the big CMC cards in the deck.

I have not done an in-depth look at the sets you pulled, but my gut says you might have a hard time ramping in colourless--after all, effecient mana rocks have not been printed in every set. Green ramp, however, is a common enough staple that you probably want access to that colour. Fourth edition even gives you such gems as
To show you how great Mayael's colours are, particularly with access to a powerful ancient set, I did a quick Gatherer search and wanted to point out the following notable cards:
Mass land destruction with Armageddon, particularly great if you have a bunch of non-land mana sources.
Lure for forcing damage through when your Eldrazi attack.
Great card draw with Sylvan Library.

As for Sunbird's Invocation, it's a powerful card but doesn't interact with X spells well since it will set X to 0. My version of the deck runs enough X spells for this to be problematic.
I used to have Pyroblast in here but actually found it to be unnecessary. If someone counterspells, they can only counter one of the two copies of the spell. I've found that most blue players psychologically feel as though this is "wasting" a counterspell since one copy still gets through. If your meta is heavy on blue though, it still may be worth running since it is very cheap removal!
Strionic Resonator is an interesting suggestion! Does it work with the way conspire is worded though? Strionic Resonator says in the reminder text that it can be used with "When", "Whenever" or "At" triggers. I don't see conspire being worded that way. I could be wrong though.

So I'm working on my own Wort deck and I was checking out which other decks on tapped out had. I would like to reiterate Sunbird's Invocation it uses cast so you can double the spells it casts as well. Who doesn't want free stuff?
I was wondering if you had problems with counterspells. I'm thinking of including Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast and the green/red one that I can't think of the name at the moment as a way of ensuring my big X goes off.
I'm also considering running Channel for extra fuel/fun.
For another idea I've been thinking about is Strionic Resonator to copy, copies of spells with the Conspire trigger.

To rephrase the "banned stuff" section, no cards can cause a player to gain or lose life unless it is a payment for something. (You can use Channel, though I'm not sure why you'd want to). Swords to Plowshares does NOT gain the creature's controller life. Lightning Bolt can target creatures, but not players. Bump in the Night is useless. Tunneling Geopede is just a creature with an activated ability that does nothing. I think you get the gist.

I am a big fan of NN Thomas' post MTG artwork, which includes both prints and resin figures. Interestingly, her style is drastically different for her own pieces than when she was working for Wizards. She still has some notable card art, including Drought, Underground River, and Aysen Crusader.
Anguished Unmaking has always been a favourite of mine. You can really tell how much pain Sorin is in as he destroys his creation.
I could do without the zombies in Endless Ranks of the Dead, but the stained glass window is gorgeous.
