So looking at the list, there are a few things that you can do to free up some card slots for more card advantage.
First step is that you should look at streamlining your combos. As has been pointed out, adding Auriok Salvagers in combo with Lion's Eye Diamond is a good move, however I think that you could easily cut Krark-Clan Ironworks, Ashnod's Altar Rings of Brighthearth, Basalt Monolith (unless you wanted to keep it for ramp), either Grinding Station or Altar of the Brood (I would keep altar of the two) and Mindslaver without any major negative impacts to your deck.
As for good card advantage, I like Ponder, Preordain, Impulse (which is amazing) and Night's Whisper as cantrip pieces. There's also Mystic Remora which is a powerhouse. The more you can get your curve down as well, the more appealing Ad Nauseam becomes.
You should also look into getting the rest ofthe 6 fetches. They will help streamline the deck as well.

I would honestly try and put more of these in the main as opposed to having them in the side unless you've tested and played this enough where it works well for you! anyhow, take care hope this helps. +1

Still has that restriction I believe but useful for all those instants you have.
With the mirror: keep in mind while it changes for the turn and doesn't keep that ability while it is changed, you can use the stack to use it multiple times a turn. So like if opponent has Wound Reflection out and you have in play an enchantment that gives you an extra draw whenever you draw a card, and 2 draw spells and a direct damage to player spell in hand you could go like I did the other day:
Mirage mirror hits the board. You first Cast the direct damage spell. While it's on stack, Activate mirror to copy opponent's wound reflection. While that's on stack, play first draw spell. While that's on stack play the other draw spell. While that's on the stack make mirror copy your extra draw enchantment.
You get 4 cards instead of 2 and your opponent takes extra damage.
I love the card. It's my absolute favorite because it can be used in so many brilliantly stupid ways it isn't even funny. An extra Mind's Dilation for 2 mana each time? Yes please (especially with Reset ;)). An extra Blightsteel Colossus for 2 mana? Heck yeah. And its not just what's in your deck - use your opponents stuff against them. Sometimes an opponent has the perfect answer you need to stall them, or complete a wincon. Sometimes you can do dumb stuff like copy someone's Mindslaver, turn it into a creature with Tezzeret's Touch, crack it to control that opponents next turn and have it go to your Mimic Vat so you can make more mirrors.
Sorry to go on but I really love the card. So damn janky at times. It's the one card that really taught me how to start playing the stack. Sorta like how the above mimic vat+mindslaver combo did for using type changing to do nifty stuff.

SurpriZe If I had any card regardless of price it would be 100% The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale. The card does so much for so little investment on my board and is an added STAX card to boot. Other cards I think would be fun would have to be Illusionary Mask as an alternate way to get Blightsteel Colossus into play as well Power Artifact and Transmute Artifact for mana generation through phasing as well as another semi tutor for handy artifacts.
In regards to Mindslaver, its still in the deck list because I haven't updated it partly due because I haven't gotten the chance to do so. I have replaced it with In the Eye of Chaos a much more disruptive card than Mindslaver.

A great deck and a very unique idea, GorehoundABB! I'm really loving it.
By the way, you were saying that Mindslaver was underperforming recently, but I still see it in the decklist. Has you opinion changed on that?
Also, if you had access to any EDH-legal card available regardless of its price, would you have made any changes to the current list?

Mindslaver might be fun to recur and recast.

Since you want decree of silence you should include Solemnity. They synergize to be pretty busted and hard to deal with.
To get you started take a look at EDHRec, it doesn't always know the best inclusions but it can get you started:
Some things I would highly recommend are: Tezzeret the Seeker , Aura of Silence, Mindslaver, Supreme Verdict, Sun Titan, Ethersworn Canonist, Etherium Sculptor, Aura Thief, Hour of Revelation. I have not built Hanna so these are just good cards that stood out to me.
