Looks like you better get a Mox Amber for this deck now! I will also suggest you add in Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star since they can be used to get you an additional draw and filter mana if you really need it, they definitely have more utility than the other 1 cmc cards you have here. Helm of Awakening is 2 cmc but it's the cheapest colorless cost reduction card that will make all of your 1 cmc cards cost 0, which is totally worth it.

Newest infinite combo piece for commander probably. Play it with Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening for infinite draw until you draw Aetherflux Reservoir then use your storm count with sensei's divining top to wipe out your opponents.

I would suggest just adding Oathsworn Vampire, a cost reducer like Urza's Incubator, and a couple of sac outlets. Oathsworn, Incubator, and Phyrexian Altar do make infinite 1/1s with the Eminence ability, and incubator and oathsworn are decent anyway, and if you add in an aristocrats subhteme altar can be great as well. But with a lot of sacrifice outlets, you'll be surprised how easy it is to go accidentally infinite, or at least have an unbeatable value engine. Oathsworn Vampire + Indulgent Aristocrat gives you the ability to pay , repeatedly, without spending any cards, and make a 1/1 token, then put a +1/+1 counter on all your creatures.
Other cost reducers you could use are Bontu's Monument (witch makes the combo an instant win instead of needing to wait for the tokens to lose summoning sickness) or Jet Medallion. Helm of Awakening maybe?

The build seems a bit clunky IMO and Aminatou is a weird choice of commander for the build. If you really want to pursue this direction, I would suggest going with Laboratory Maniac as an alternate win condition instead of Tendrils.
Also consider using the Future Sight + Helm of Awakening + Sensei's Divining Top combo. This lets you draw out your entire library and can easily be setup using Insidious Dreams. I had a lot of success using this combo in my Oona, Queen of Fae deck.
Lastly, you need more mana rocks instead of relying on dorks which are more prone to disruption and removal.

Example of turn 1 win's
- cast Mana Crypt
- cast Helm of Awakening
- cast Lotus Petal
- cast Mox Opal
- cast Mana Vault
- cast Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
- cast Sensei's Divining Top
From here we basicly draw 2 cards for each artifact we cast and all spells cost less. There is no garantee it keeps going from here but if your lucky it does. While you keep developing the board, you should focus on making your artifacts cost less, draw and get more mana. For each such card you play, chanses to keep going from there goes up. Eventually your snowball becomes unstoppable.
For winning there are options. Aetherflux Reservoir is awesome because it will win you the game and since it's an artifact, it won't slow down your snowball. Laboratory Maniac is not only a game winner, knowing you have this card in your deck will also restore your sanity when you see your library shrinking like mad.

Hey I've been playtesting Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain since she came out and here are a couple things I have found out. Firstly, Words of Wind combos better with Sensei's Divining Top than Future Sight and can directly replace it for the Sensei's Divining Top/Helm of Awakening combo. It allows you to draw your deck with essentially the same 3 cards except it also bounces your opponents board including lands and Words of Wind is easier to cast.
Secondly, Possibility Storm is amazing and is huge for card advantage. I personally like it more than Vedalken Archmage since it gets in the way of almost every single combo and causes you to draw 2 cards off of every Historic card not just artifacts.

List looks sweet overall, but there a few things that jump out at me. First off, there are quite a few high cmc cards in what is definitely an Ad Nauseam-focused deck. Mainly Decree of Pain, which is one card instead of 3-4 when drawing off Ad Naus and also inhibits your ability to draw down to a really low life total. The same could be said about Mystic Confluence/Paradox Engine etc but to a lesser degree.
Second thing to consider is rituals, namely Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual. Obviously they're card disadvantage but they have the ability to create a bunch of mana really easily to fuel your manual storm turns, especially when you can use Kess to effectively double them. Other card that fall into this bracket are High Tide, Especially combined with Snap and Frantic Search. Snap is especially good as it allows you to bounce Kess, untap two lands, replay Kess and cast another spell from the graveyard etc.
Third thing is mana rocks - in a storm deck, mana is usually the bottleneck so you want your mana rocks to be as efficient as possible. I would recommend that you take out the two 3cmc rocks you currently have, and potentially replace them with cards like Mana Vault, Helm of Awakening or Talisman of Indulgence. Efficiency is key and mana rocks that net you -2 mana aren't where we want to be.
Hope this was helpful :) good luck and have fun storming off!
