One does not simply call a deck 'fact or fiction tribal' without playing Fact or Fiction...

And here are nonland suggestions, as well as thought process. Pick and choose which ones you like.
1x Alhammarret's Archive - makes Oloro even better at what he does: drawing cards and gaining life
1x Austere Command - a staple board wipe that's very cheap right now and very good against every deck in our meta
1x Azorius Signet - ramp
1x Blind Obedience - lifegain and it's very good against gishath and inalla
1x Boon Reflection - doubles lifegain
1x Chasm Skulker - tokens and combos with all the card draw you have
1x Chromatic Lantern - ramp and fixing, basically a must-have in every 3+ color deck. It is expensive though, so if you skip out on it I can't blame you
1x Crested Sunmare - triggers at the end of every turn, so it won't be long before you have an army of 5/5 indestructible horses
1x Cyclonic Rift - the best blue card in the format
1x Dimir Signet - ramp
1x Drogskol Reaver - it's like an Oloro that doesn't make you pay mana!
1x Exsanguinate - this can easily gain you 20-25 life, and in that case it's only for 7 mana. Flexible enough to be a small spell to get you a bit of life or a kill spell
1x Fact or Fiction - More card draw!
1x Luminarch Ascension - I know how much you love angels, and this is also a very viable win condition. Also good for Zur
1x Merciless Eviction - probably the best board wipe. It's good against K+T, it's good against Inalla, it's good against Meren.
1x Necropotence - this card is gross and at its cheapest ever right now. The "downside" of paying life doesn't even matter in your deck. Just make sure you don't overdraw! Which is why I suggested Thought Vessel as a replacement for some other ramp pieces just in case
1x Orzhov Signet - ramp
1x Rhox Faithmender - doubling effect. Imagine you have this out and 50 life and you cast Beacon of Immortality, you'd go straight to 150. And that's conservative for the amount of life you'll have by the time you can cast Beacon.
1x Sphinx's Revelation - draws cards and gains life
1x Swords to Plowshares - you have a lot of removal, but sometimes you need something for one mana

From my experience of playing eggs terrarion is just a cantrip along with most of my deck. It just feels like you aren't taking full advantage of synergies inherit in eggs. You mention not being to competitive but you are running incredibly powerful cards already. Like having those spellbombs is impossible for me because you have to pay colored mana to draw while there are eggs that you can just sac and then draw a card (you already have free sac outlets).
The salvaging station combo that you have right now is weak because you don't immediately win and it is basically recurring 2 one mana artifacts which in the end it just draws you 2 cards so you might as well put in a draw spell because it will be cheaper and you pay colored mana for the spellbombs anyways.
Trinket Mage doesn't make you win and you have no interaction that you can grab with it is a tutor this is what it should be doing. Right now it just hits a cantrip which you have to sac. You don't have any significant combos with something like Sensei's Divining Top(though I guess you might have Quicksmith Genius now which is one of the best things you can grab with it. Something like Trophy Mage will grab Scrap Trawler which is one of your wincons.
If Reshape is being used for Lotus Bloom it basically amounts to a ritual effect because it is just a gain one mana of any color. The only other use of Lotus Bloom is to Goblin Welder it. Which might in itself be good enough.
You aren't taking advantage of all of the shuffle effects in your deck. You aren't running Brainstorm. It is basically a draw 3 and make 2 of the cards in your hand go away. The reason I think Fact or Fiction is bad is because your opponent will give you the worse possible hand. You might as well play Impulse or something of the sort like Ponder. These offer a much greater flexibility. You might even be able to play Ad Nauseam which can effectively let you draw 15 cards without killing yourself.
You should put in some fast mana of course then your deck would become a lot more competitive.

I have purposely left out all of the mana positive rocks bar Sol Ring to bring the decks power level down to a more acceptable stage for my play group. I don't want people to feel like they can't compete because of my ramp.
Clock of Omens and Voltaic Key are currently in the deck as they combo with Salvaging Station and Sensei's Divining Top as card draw engines to set up for the kill turns. Trinket Mage searches for a good chunk of the deck, so I don't know why you considered it a dead card??? Reshape is in the deck as a way to cheat Lotus Bloom into play. A well known trick which made modern eggs so powerful.
This deck isn't meant to be 100% competitive. Although some of the card choices may make it feel that way. I assure you everything is here for a reason.

I play eggs quite a bit as well, and I think you should put in Workshop Assistant Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, I know that theme of your deck means that you want to slap someone in the face but I think you should consider more options to killing people like Aetherflux Reservoir or Disciple of the Vault.
I think you should put in the Terrarion and Quicksmith Genius (there is a sensei's top and quicksmith combo). I find that I can dump my deck into the graveyard quickly(which is ultimately what an eggs deck wants to do).
Although I find that Quicksmith Genius is to mana intensive to play sometimes.
It might just come from a different vision of the deck but you don't have easy ways to win other than just looping artifacts with pia/jeskai on the board. You don't have easy things like Paradox Engine, Temple Bell, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Basalt Monolith, cheap one mana draw spells.
In addition it seems like you are unable to actually utilize most of the spellbombs because they are too colored mana intensive. You don't run all of the eggs from odyssey that you can. You also don't have any interaction with your opponents. Other than that you basically got eggs down.

Odysseus_97 Search for Azcanta Flip is drffinitely better than Fact or Fiction but I'd still be so pissed if I had to put something sweet on the bottom of my library. I think the card draw is good enough that the spot would be better filled with another creature or something that helps defend the creatures. Just my opinion though.
