+1 for Najeela any day!
If you want my opinion on building a competitive varient of najeela combo, tutorsa are the largest thing Lim-Dul's Vault is a personal favorite, yet is very powerful as well, and sees play in nearly every competitive EDH list with both colors.
Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress/Talisman of Dominance/Talisman of Indulgence/Talisman of Impulse/Talisman of Unity, Azorius Signet/Dimir Signet/Rakdos Signet/Gruul Signet/Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet/Golgari Signet/Simic Signet/Izzet Signet/Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Fractured Powerstone, Star Compass, Coldsteel Heart, Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond/Charcoal Diamond/Fire Diamond/Moss Diamond, and Guardian Idol are the two mana rocks I can remember, but all of the two mana rocks are great!
Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, and Arbor Elf are great 1 mana dorks used to ramp out your commander and win conditions faster.
A lot of the above is all I can remember from competitive EDH staples, but check out my primer Why Every Commander is Competitive for further information on building a competitive list!

Kindred Charge is a great way to pump out loads of damage to finish a game, and is sitting at around 1.45c right now, but this deck is aggro, so the first thing I would suggest is ramp and card draw!
Talisman of Dominance, Fellwar Stone and Mind Stone are additional "signets" the deck can run if you want, though Fractured Powerstone, Thought Vessel, Everflowing Chalice, Guardian Idol, Marble Diamond, Fire Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, and Prismatic Lens are other options as well.
Kindred Dominance can be a blowout in a boardstate you can't attack through, and has lead my Vampire deck to many a win, it is also not super expensive, at around 7 dollars, yet also isn't super cheap either, your call. Plague Wind costs more for nearly the same thing, but stops regeneration (if you see a lot of that where you play) and is only .50 cents.

For a deck with 3.1 cmc, you are running too few lands, with only two sources of ramp. 35-36 is better for control, less if you have more ramp. Because ramp is not available in your colors, mana rocks have to be used. Thought Vessel (although expensive), Darksteel Ingot, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Marble Diamond, Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan. You should at least add the other signets and then think about some of the others mentioned. Because you're in blue, black, and white, you have access to single target removal spells like Pongify, Oblivion Ring, Murder, Mortify, Go for the Throat. The other upside of being in these colors is the access to good draw. While altar's reap and catalog are good, getting rid of your stuff and discarding cards only hurts you, especially with better options. Windfall, Blue Sun's Zenith, Divination, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood. Instead of essence scatter and negate, there are better counterspells that cost 2 mana, if that is what you're looking for; Counterspell and Arcane Denial. Both are not as restrictive, and in the case of arcane denial, giving your opponent cards typically doesn't matter as long as they've been disrupted. Also a 25 cent card that should be added to every list running black is Diabolic Tutor. Despite chromium's built-in protection, you should still run cards like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, or Whispersilk Cloak.

Glad you like it. It is one of my favorite cards, but I don't think it has gotten enough love. Certainly not like Guttersnipe.
I think you can also swap out two lands for some mana rocks. Sol Ring is the obvious choice, but I like other low-cost ones like Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone and Coldsteel Heart. Or even Sky Diamond, Fire Diamond or Izzet Signet. These can all help you get Jhoira out on turn 3 so she can start doing her thing. I'd rather see any of these over Hedron Archive too, since it costs so much in comparison.

I'm curious about the cycling lands and the scry lands. I've always had issues with lands that come into play tapped with Kaalia. My experience is that Kaalia wants land to come in to play untapped so the deck can hit fast and hard. The tango lands, shocks, and fetches seem better. Oh Coldsteel Heart is a nice rock!
Swiftfoot Boots was always a slow card for me. I'd play it and always find myself waiting an extra turn to play Kaalia, so I could equip it. Cards like Fervor(turn three play) are nice, since they just usher Kaalia and any other card without haste with no additional mana needed.
Also, how's Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon? How often do you get kills with it? I Like it!

Enlarge, Fade into Antiquity, Lost in the Woods, Coldsteel Heart, Phytoburst, Aspect of Hydra, Howl of the Night Pack, Soul of the Harvest, Soul of Zendikar, and all of the spells that do nothing but gain you life can go.
Naturalize is a must. Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, and Cultivate are all good ramp. Overrun can be a game-ender. Harmonize is good card draw. Fyndhorn Elves and Elvish Mystic are essentially extra copies of Llanowar Elves. In this deck, so is Arbor Elf. You also might want to consider some utility lands, like Oran-Rief, the Vastwood or Blighted Woodland. There's also a bunch of good stuff coming in Core 2019 that you might want to check out.

I love Bladewing the Risen and Whip of Erebos in my deck, their synergy is fantastic. Solemn Simulacrum and Coldsteel Heart can be cut because the card value in the deck is in playing impactful, undercosted dragons. Many people play Birds of Paradise and Nature's Lore in those slots. Also, Sunbird's Invocation and Wild Pair are nuts. You could also use a bit of removal.
