Without knowing the color identy of your deck or seeing your list it is very hard to help you but in blue I use these:

Well of Ideas ,

Mystic Remora ,

Rhystic Study obviously,

you can also use Kami of the Crescent Moon .

My friends also use these:

Kefnet the Mindful ,

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip,

Azami, Lady of Scrolls .

Hope that helps.

I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.

There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.

Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

CyborgAeon on Aminatou Turbo-Stasis

That's quite helpful, IAmTheWraith though my followup question: how often do you need to deal with indestructible creatures? The only ones I've seen played in cEDH are Keranos, God of Storms (which rarely if ever becomes a creature), maybe Kefnet the Mindful , but I really struggle to see many other "targets"

You make a great case about its other effects, though.

I'd recommend adding a Kefnet the Mindful . He helps you draw cards and is also an indestructible blocker than can help you mill more cards. His ability also helps you reset certain lands like Bojuka Bog for repeated uses. You can also use it to use Minamo, School at Water's Edge 's ability twice in a turn (activate Minamo, return it to hand with Kefnet, play Minamo and activate it again).

Thank you zapyourtumor for the advice, however I think Amulet of Vigor is a little bit out of my price range.

My logic behind Kefnet the Mindful is that I can draw cards and pick up lands before combat, then replay everything after combat. However if this doesn't work I may cut Kefnet the Mindful .

I am now testing Verity Circle and it usually range from ok to great ( I was able to draw my deck as some one did a Kiki/Zealous combo) and found/cast an instant speed board wipe to steal the win!

Guardian Project is great also but rely on having a sac engine available to really shine.

I've cut Myth Unbound to test Timetwister . ( although I hate giving 21 cards to my opponents. )

I have tested Kefnet the Mindful but it is just not good enough compare to Thrasios. ( he is never a creature for me, at least the triton can attack on an empty board for a trigger. )

I have tested Evolutionary Leap as a sac outlet for derevi and it is not bad but would be better if the activation cost was free.

I have tested Dowsing Dagger  Flip it is ok, but it felt too slow.

I have tested Pride Sovereign as another token generator, he is good indeed, but he do not survive creature board wipe, so I had to cut it.

Skyward Eye Prophets effect is insane, but yes, 6 mana for a creature 3/3 with no evasion that do nothing for a turn, I had to cut him.

Command Beacon can get him to your hand if he’s been killed a bunch, then things like Brainstorm can get him back to library. Jace, the Mind Sculptor similarly.

I think decking yourself could pose an issue, perhaps either the new Jace or Laboratory Maniac could be a fix, I realize already been considered but is important I think. I also like creatures that want a big hand and help draw more, like Kefnet the Mindful , Consecrated Sphinx , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Psychosis Crawler and Consecrated Sphinx .

Very cool build, +1

Hey, love to see that other EDH players see Kefnet the Mindful as a voltron commander. First thing I'll say about playing a voltron deck with this birdy is that all you have to do is play board wipe tribal. Find every colorless and blue board wipe in existence a put them in the deck. Second, put every tutor you can in blue to find Worldslayer . Once Worldslayer is on the battlefield with Kefnet the Mindful ready to attack you've won (if your opponent hasn't simply quit through irritation).
