Hey! This is Eden. First off, this seems like a fun budget build. I'm liking what you put together. This comment is just to give you some ideas if you decide to tune the list further.
For starters, you have some really weak cards, and there are some cards that are generally good with Nin that aren't terribly expensive that you could run. The cards that seem particularly weak to me are: Goblin Electromancer, Goblin Flectomancer, Bloodshot Cyclops, and maybe just the quantity of creature steal and sac outlets. People aren't always playing relevant creatures, and once you have a sac outlet, you don't need another. You could cut a few sac outlets for cheap tutors. You also have this instant and sorcery sub theme going on that's just kinda halfway there. I would suggest cutting that. Also, you play two cards that combo with Kiki-Jiki: Zealous Conscripts and Pestermite. So you have three combo cards. Typically, you want your combo cards to be useful outside of the combo as well. Zealous Conscripts is your strategy, so it's good. Kiki-Jiki copies some interesting creatures, but you really don't have a lot of targets for it. With the stealing it does get a bit better. Pestermite is just terrible outside of that combo. I would strongly suggest cutting it.
I would suggest adding: Stuffy Doll, Darksteel Myr (indestructible means you can hit it for as much as you want with Nin), Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Thought Vessel, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Basilisk Collar, Illusionist's Bracers, Vedalken Shackles. Tutors like Fabricate, Whir of Invention, Gamble, Mystical Tutor, and Muddle the Mixture can also help add consistency to the deck.
Overall, you have a strategy that doesn't revolve around Nin. This is fine, I often build my decks that way, but it's important that the decision be conscious. Many of the cards I suggested make the deck more Nin-centric. If you add them, you'll be more focused on playing and resolving Nin each game; however, the power that it offers can be worth it. I just want to be clear that my suggestions change the direction of your deck a bit, and I'm not sure if you want that. Anyway, I'm excited to play against it! Cheers!

Also wouldn't running Fabricate be really good for this deck? As artifacts play quite a important role here.
Otherwise, great deck! I finished getting most of the cards today (some I changed for personal tastes) and have playtested it :)

Cards I would cut/replacement:
For Win conditions:
Really up to you tbh. But i think the following options synergize well with your deck.
1) Artifact Win Cons:
Lattice + Forge + Nevi disk. (or really any destroy all artifact)
- If this is the route your pursue. Invest is artifact tutors like Fabricate, Treasure Mage, Arcum Dagsson, etc...
2) Bounce win con
This one is a bit tricky, but can be done.
This usually revolves on getting ahead with mana rocks or using trickery.
3) Cloning / stealing wincons / game ending spells
4) Entering the infinte.
Any win con that works with Enter the Infinite.
Infinite mana or omniscience is a play your deck
or even just a Psychosis Crawler.
- You might have to make more room for these win conditions. but it at least provides you with options assuming that your opponents don't have much to work with

I enjoy Marchesa, the Black Rose in my own Sliver build.

Okay here are my promised suggestions.
Take out Winter Orb for Winding Constrictor, Trophy Mage for Master Biomancer, Tangle Wire for Eternal Witness, remove Sun Titan for a Ajani Unyielding, Supreme Verdict for I believe As Foretold even though not covered in your list if you can acquire one of these I recommend it, otherwise add maybe Vorel of the Hull Clade.
Beyond this, swap Stasis for Hardened Scales, Shred Memory for Scavenging Ooze, Perplex for Thrummingbird, Peacekeeper for either Authority of the Consulate (Will explain why soon) or Corpsejack Menace if not, Narset Transcendent for Glen Elendra Archmage, Muddle the Mixture for Abzan Charm, Luminarch Ascension for Aura Shards, Kiora, Master of the Depths for Forgotten Ancient, Idyllic Tutor for Collective Effort, Humility for I think Archangel of Thune if you have or can get one easily the card works well when you have of course your commander and Authority of the Consuls if you choose to run that, or just Rishkar's Expertise, Fabricate for Crystalline Crawler, Aura of Silence for Prime Speaker Zegana.
You could always add in some hydras to this like Primordial Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, and Lifeblood Hydra. Some other considerations are Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel which I recommend one or more (I use both) so you don't ever have to worry about discard when you play Prime Speaker Zegana or Rishkar's Expertise. I also think you should try and add Inspiring Call which further supports having something for unlimited handsize. Oath of Ajani, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Abzan Falconer, and Chasm Skulker(good if you include all of that card draw) are a few other ideas.
When I can again I will try and help you find a place for Viral Drake and any others I missed/suggested additionally.

Timetwister is a bit more odd to replace. I'd consider adding either Blue Sun's Zenith, Recurring Insight, or the new Aftermath Spiral effect from Amonkhet. It's not easy to find a functionally similar version and Day's Undoing is pretty terrible. Consider any high impact low cost spell or win condition with this as your flex slot. Hell, Consecrated Sphinx could go here.
