Eye of the Storm
Whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery card, exile it. Then that player copies each instant or sorcery card exiled with Eye of the Storm. For each copy, the player may cast the copy without paying its mana cost.
Eye of the Storm Discussion

I'm running Eye of the Storm over Thousand-Year Storm due to the fact that it's a perpetual storm engine due to its oracle text saying that you cast the copies, which means more triggers to Aetherflux Reservoir , more storm stacks for Ignite Memories , more copies of Bonus Round et cetera. Thousand-Year Storm is a great card don't get me wrong but it requires more on your behalf to work as effectively as the Eye which automatically wins the game when you exile Turnabout and Impulse under it (which generates a loop of always untapping your lands or rocks and a way to dig for more spells to feed into the Eye until you find an Ignite Memories or a Bonus Round + Lightning Bolt ).
I don't feel it's worth the trouble to run both due to their higher CMCs and due to the turns being so valuable, I can't justify them both because I usually cheat out Eye with Show and Tell anyways as described in the combos and go off with that.
Still, Thousand-Year Storm is a fantastic card and I feel like other Melek lists can really get a bang out of their buck if they are running it.

I'd look into adding Sunbird's Invocation to further increase the storm. In conjunction with Sensei's Divining Top you can add some choice to what you get off of the Sunbird trigger. Sunbird also feeds into cards like Mind's Desire and with Eye of the Storm and Future Sight it'll just lend itself into some ridiculous combos. Throw in the War of the Spark Ral and you have yourself another win-con.

Noyan Dar is one of my new pet projects of mine (I rarely have expendable cash, and an LGS just opened up near me which is sweet since I don't drive!), and I think your list is awesome!
With To Arms being as massively powerful as it is in this deck, Unity of Purpose should be included for more redundancy.
I find that with Azorius Spellslingers' lack of ramp capabilities, consistent card draw and selection is necessary. Mystic Speculation can be a one-stop shop for that, especially since it repeatedly lets Noyan Dar make tokens. The buyback makes up for the fact that it doesn't cantrip itself, and makes sure that you always have some way of animating / buffing your land creatures.
And although they're 7 mana do-nothing cards, Eye of the Storm and Sphinx-Bone Wand can spiral out of control if not removed (or played off-curve). I personally run the wand as the only artifact in the deck, alongside Shape Anew and artifact token creators so I have a way of cheating the wand into play.
Eye of the Storm can be especially backbreaking if you can cadt your To Arms! / Unity of Purpose, you'd get to repeatedly cast it, animate a land, and float mana for your Tezzeret's Gambit or what have you. You have to be mindful of the spells you cast into EotS, since if you Disenchant all other legal targets and don't have a counterspell in the eye to counter it, you have to destroy the enchantment. It enchantment also lets your opponents use spells you put into it, so be careful. Silly, but careful!
Awesome brew bud, I look forward to see how this deck evolves!

You may play around Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis 's ability. Tatyova, Benthic Druid will give you extra card draw whenever you get a land on the field. Reliquary Tower is cheap now, and works wonders. You surely will have 5 lands on turn 4, so Temple of the False God is really good.
You should also consider Azorius Chancery , Boros Garrison , Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary , Simic Growth Chamber , Izzet Boilerworks . You play your untapped land for the turn normally, then play one of those with K&T's ability. You get ahead of mana since these lands tap for 2 mana.
I suggest removing Azorius Guildgate , Blossoming Sands , Boros Guildgate , Gruul Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , Simic Guildgate , Tranquil Cove , Vivid Grove , Haunted Fengraf and Unstable Frontier for the lands above.

My old roommate used to run a obnoxious deck containing Eye of the Storm , Grip of Chaos , Hive Mind . Something like that could be fun to disrupt your opponents. Perhaps Knowledge Pool could serve a similar function, along with the aforementioned Omen Machine .

Playing the chaotic deck is always fun.

JaysomeDecks I added Eye of the Storm it’s a great backup plan. I enjoy drawing my deck with it. I really think the deck shouldn’t run Omen Machine it needs to be able to draw answers for creatures on board after the lock is established.
