With Islandwalk potentially being the difference between a win and loss, perhaps Quicksilver Fountain would be of use here.
Chart a Course seems to fit thematically, but you'd need some more creatures to make it viable. Jace's Ingenuity is just bad. It makes Harmonize look like a dream. As rule of thumb, draw card isn't good if it works out to much more than 1CMC/card drawn. And it doesn't create card advantage unless you're drawing at least 2 cards - that is - can-tripping is deck-thinning. I don't think you want to deck thin here, because those slots are better used for lands you need to cast your big creatures. Divination is probably the more acceptable option, though I'm not particularly found of it.
Another option: use Master Transmuter to drop an Inkwell Leviathan . This would require more artifacts, but that could be the way to go - things like Springleaf Drum and Paradise Mantle with Ornithopters can be a very fast mana ramp. You'd also get Stoic Rebuttal , Darksteel Citadel , and creatures like Etherium Sculptor . If you do go with artifacts, Buried Ruin would be smart.

Out: 1 Negate , 1 Wooded Foothills , 1 Logic Knot , 1 Force of Negation (went in sideboard), 1 Serum Visions In: 1 Crackling Drake , 1 Fiery Islet , 1 Narset, Parter of Veils , 1 Fact or Fiction , 1 Mana Leak
Some big moves happened after playing a couple weekend test games. I felt like i wanted a main board finisher that would have to be answered or just end the game right there ( Crackling Drake ) and I wanted more versatile counter magic ( ie. Mana Leak ). As for the addition of Fact or fiction I wanted to test out some new tech although 4 mana is a lot, so that's my flex spot right now. Three for Narset feels pretty good. she gets a lot of value down the turn she is played and allows me to replace her quickly as well as dump some targets for snap caster mage into the bin. The land was an easy choice as although the fetches help thin my deck if I start to flood fiery islet allows me to pitch it for one and draw a cord at instant speed.
As a general note I've been loving the feel of the deck overall. It feels fast and very reactive. yet can go up against death shadows midrange and blue white control really well in grindy games( though it doesnt quite get there but I blame that more on myself as a new control/ tempo player than I do on the deck.

First of all, great list! I have been thinking about building around this commander myself for quite some time now as I found this list on Reddit. You were asking for critique/suggestions so here we go:
The new land Field of the Dead seems like a great utility land for this deck, essentially turning all your infinite mana combos also into infinite creatures. It also seems like a solid target to blink for value.
Animate Dead but neither Dance of the Dead nor Necromancy ? If you don't want that many recurion spells I personally would opt to run Necromancy . It costs 1 mana more than Animate Dead , but it can be played at instant speed, if needed.
I know, it's a bit boring, but how about Rhystic Study ? Also maybe Smothering Tithe ?
Propaganda but no Ghostly Prison ?
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver seems way less optimal than the new Ashiok . He also can infinitely mill your opponents, while providing graveyard hate instead of a mediocre creature steal ability.
Dark Confidant is a great card overall, but I wonder why he is in this deck specifically. He is the only creature in the deck that has no synergy with flickering.
Rona, Disciple of Gix seems very inefficient to me.
I get that you only play the Singets and Talismans that make blue mana, but the deck has only very few ramp pieces (I count 7), so I think Orzhov Signet and Talisman of Hierarchy would be great inclusions. Also have you considered cards like Mana Vault ?
No Path to Exile ?
Disenchant seems out of place. I would replace it with something like Leonin Relic-Warder .
Eerie Interlude but no Ghostway ?
You should definitely play Glen Elendra Archmage instead of Negate .
I know it's pricy, but have you considered Vampiric Tutor (or even more extreme: Imperial Seal )?
This deck is quite boardwipe light for a more control oriented strategy that can, on top of it, save some of it's creatures by temorarily exiling them. Terminus seems especially great, other than that just the classics: Wrath of God , Day of Judgment , Damnation .
These are all my thoughts on the deck, I hope there was something in there that is useful to you ;)

Hey! I really like this deck.
I think there are two cards that should be considered strict upgrades to what you have now.
I would replace:
