Sure! Ghostly Flicker + Peregrine Drake + Archaeomancer or Izzet Chronarch is infinate mana and infinite casts of Ghostly Flicker .

1) have Peregrine Drake and Archaeomancer or Izzet Chronarch on the battlefield.

2) cast Ghostly Flicker and target those creatures

3) get your etbs. Peregrine Drake will untap 5 lands and Archaeomancer will enter and allow you to get an instant or sorcery from your graveyard; you take Ghostly Flicker

4) each time you repeat this process you should be netting 2 mana.

I really like your list but I have two questions.

I might be missing something but what exactly are you doing after you reanimate the Chronarch? By that point you have Izzet Chronarch in play, Chronarch's and Inalla's triggers on the stack, Entomb , Reanimate , Burnt Offering in your graveyard and only left on your mana pool.

I can't see how you go from there to looping Burnt Offering and Shallow Grave without needing extra mana and/or extra life while looping Izzet Chronarch instead of Scholar of the Ages .

Also, if your loop works with Izzet Chronarch why not base your chain around Archaeomancer instead?

Several of your combo pieces do not synergie well with Adeliz, the Cinder Wind 's ability. E.g. Ghitu Journeymage is almost only useful during the combo. Outside of it they are not evasive enough to get past opponents' creatures to reliably make use of the commander's +1/+1s. Wizards such as Neurok Invisimancer or Thalakos Seer can make the +1/+1s count every turn, and are instagibs once you are comboing off.

Also, why no Stonybrook Banneret ? It fits both perfectly in a wizard tribe deck and synergies with the commander's abilities due to Islandwalk well.

Drowner Initiate and Ghitu Journeymage are two more cards I would cut. Instead I would add Merchant of Secrets , it's much more useful during regular play and almost as useful during the combo.

Two other cards that fit well within this deck are Compulsive Research and Deep Analysis . Once you are comboing with two Archaeomancer / Izzet Chronarch / Salvager of Secrets / Scrivener you can mill your opponents with those two cards.

Relic of Progenitus can shot yourself in the foot if you are exiling a card you still need from your own graveyard. An possible alternative is Tormod's Crypt .

Where the hell are Naban, Dean of Iteration and Panharmonicon ?

Alongside Arcane Adaptation , I'd suggest also Xenograft for the same effect.

Lullmage Mentor is a must in a wizard deck, alongside Voidmage Prodigy for control purposes.

Izzet Chronarch , Salvager of Secrets and Archaeomancer rebuy your spells! Twice, with Panharmonicon and Naban !

Barrin, Master Wizard loves tokens, as you can sacrifice them to him and remove threats! Galecaster Colossus is maybe the strongest Wizard in tribal commander decks.

Beguiler of Wills loves of you have a high creature count.

Descendant of Soramaro almost lets you stack your deck on need.

Rayne, Academy Chancellor draws lots of cards.

Serendib Sorcerer saves you from tight spots and it's politic.

Had another look. I like:

There's a bunch other good cards there too. Most of the lands I see are good.

Spell recusion creatures are always good: Archaeomancer , Izzet Chronarch , Anarchist , Mnemonic Wall , Salvager of Secrets . Maybe just 2 or 3.
