Creature — Illusion
As Ixidron enters the battlefield, turn all other nontoken creatures in play face down. (They're 2/2 creatures.)
Ixidron's power and toughness are each equal to the number of face-down creatures in play.

So it's a Lab Maniac deck ... Looks like it could use a Rite of Replication ... I think you should also consider Coral Atoll and Twiddle ... Finally, to clarify, you know Ixidron doesn't give creatures morph, right?

The deck looks like a blast to pilot, would love to throw this against my Anti-Competitive GAAIV (Embrace the Hate) (Teeg's one of my harder matchups, needless to say).

Hi! Cool deck! Ixidron is one I'd never seen before, I think it's awesome!
Well of Lost Dreams will draw you some cards every time you gain life which is awesome. Somthing to consider.

Other than that, you have the rest of the deck already. You need ways to reuse your "turn face up" triggers so cards like Ixidron or Cloudstone Curio help do this. Also, Strionic Resonator will help with this too. You also want effects that reward you for connecting with your creatures, which you have. Lastly, your creatures are your answers to problems on the board so you may need a repeatable way of finding your answers. Survival of the Fittest is expensive but incredible in this deck.

I looked at your list and there were a few things that stood out to me:
- I think you could change a few things in your list to increase the consistency of your deck. For example, I counted ~7 ramp and ~4 draw spells. That seems really low, even for Roon (Im running 9 in both categories). Also, your curve seems really steep (very few 1-2 drops and a lot of 4-6 drops). Lowering your curve would also greatly help the deck in terms of consistency.
- I think you should reconsider Ghostway and Eerie Interlude. These cards save you from all boardwipes or combo well with your own, can work wondrously with Ixidron and combo very well with Eternal Witness type of creatures for maximum value (Play ghostway on every turn as long as you have the mana must appeal to you if you want to outvalue your opponents). And if you are using that top deck scenario to determine the quality of those cards, I guess thats an extra reason to play more card-draw ;).
- I miss a few cards that I consider all stars in Roon: Ephara, God of the Polis, Seedborn Muse, Recruiter of the Guard, Aura Shards and of course Deadeye Navigator
Hope these tips are helpful to you. Good luck with the deck and have fun!

Thran Dynamo can help you ramp in addition to your lotus. Play turn 4. Then turn 5 play another island, your commander and have enough mana for a counterspell (because no one wants their commander taken away).
If not the dynamo then maybe a Caged Sun can help.
Clever Impersonator for utility
Consecrated Sphinx for card draw. I call him constipated sphinx.
If you really want to steal their creatures efficiently then Gilded Drake is always nice. Extra points if you bounce it.
Not on theme with your deck but still something to consider, Ixidron is a blue "board wipe." Another card that's not on theme but still interesting is Crystal Shard. Can save your creatures in a pinch of make someone think twice about casting a creature to tap out. Can be used politically to exploit ETB effects as well.
Ancient Tomb for ramp

Looks pretty good but i think you might want to add in a few ways to sweep the board for when things get out of hand. Nevinyrral's Disk, Cyclonic Rift Ixidron and Boompile are probably your best bets out of monoblue.
Here are also a few other random suggestions.
Hope this helps!

So Aid from the Cowl is not a very good card, and I'll explain why: You have 36 land, so over 1/3rd of your deck is just that. 36 + 6 + 8 is 50. Over half of your deck (50/99) are cards that are either incredibly underwhelming or can't be used off of Aid from the Cowl at all. Since it's basically 5 mana ramp, you may as well just use Mirari's Wake, which ramps you way harder and let you play out all of the things you'd want to flip from Aid. You also don't have anywhere near the level of topdeck manipulation I think necessary to use Aid and it be good.
Ixidron is one of my favorite cards for slowing down opponents in Commander. Have a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds deck that's about to draw its whole library and destroy you? Turn that frown upside down- and the rest of her board state, too! You can easily flicker/blink your creatures to return yours face up, but your opponents cannot (Ixidron isn't like manifest- those creatures have to get turned face up by very specific effects like Ixidor, Reality Sculptor, or by getting blinked/sacrificed/etc.). It's very similar to killing the creatures, but it's so much more powerful because your opponents need sacrifice effects in order to get their Commanders and other big cards back. Turning a Blightsteel Colossus facedown and an opponent being forced to sacrifice it turns later is pretty hilarious. I would definitely run it over Jace's Mindseeker, which is kind of a lucksack card.
If you want some random ideas, check out my Roon build. I've been playing the rhino for about 4 years now, so I've got some experience with the guy. Here:
