Yeah dude, good job, I have a really similiar list to yours.

I'm just gonna say it, it looks like this deck is made for salt value, which I'm cool with! I'm a hardcore Casual EDH player, but I have a Golos deck as well (my most expensive one, $200+), and I bring it out for the same reason, to induce salt! (but, I always announce it first, because, well, too much salt is bad for business).
All in all, this is a very long-winded way of saying, this deck is missing crucial salt value that would also help you get to one of your locks/combos: extra turns! Trust me, there is no deeper groan in the world than when I say: "I'm playing Golos, and my deck is a turns deck." The table instantly gawks at me and I almost don't even bother saying "I want you to team up on me," because I already know they will. Also, a great and fun infinite combo I found is Enter the Infinite+Beacon of Tomorrows/Nexus of Fate. Infinite turns lock, and also, I feel like Enter the Infinite and Omniscience are auto-includes in any Golos deck.
I love the deck, btw. Golos is just the best commander to use when making a deck says: "I do this, and then, you guys can't do anything, gg!"

Nexus of Fate going to the graveyard is not a triggered ability. It is a replacement effect, since it begins with "If Nexus of Fate would..." and has the word "instead" in it. Therefore, there won't be any triggers from Nexus of Fate going onto the stack, it will immediately get shuffled into your deck without anyone having priority to respond to it, including you.
So, that win-con line will not work. If Nexus of Fate is the last card in your library, you will have to draw 2 cards in order to win with Laboratory Maniac.
A card that does have a trigger when hitting the graveyard would be a card like one of the original Eldrazi Titans like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, which is indeed a triggered ability since it begins with "when".
If you don't believe me, ask a judge or look up "Nexus of Fate replacement effect".

Dischord When you mill Nexus of Fate a trigger goes onto the stack. The trigger is to put it back into your deck (“if it would be put into the grave from anywhere”). When this goes onto the stack you can hold priority and cast a draw spell before the trigger resolves. At the time your library will be empty.

@Annexus: Yes I totally agree with your thoughts about Timetwister but not with those to Wheel of Fortune. Budget options for those 2 cards are for sure / Time Spiral and Echo of Eons but you definitely need some wheels in your deck and Wheel of Fortune is the really strong, but the deck wouldn't lose much strength if you play Windfall and Echo of Eons/Time Spiral instead of Timetwister/Wheel of Fortune.
The two other Narset are cool flavourwhise but I personally thought that there were simply better alternatives:
I think the deck has only like two slots at maximum for "win more" cards.
At the moment I play Thousand-Year Storm and Aggravated Assault. TStorm cannot be cut because I won almost every game with him as soon as he touched the field. But maybe Narset Transcendent could be a replacement for Aggravated Assault. Narset is a bit more versatile but sometimes you don't hit any extraturn/combat and then narset is a lil bit worse than the Assault, because with the assault you gain another try with Narset, Enlightened Master and if you hit Time Spiral you get ANOTHER attack and with the assault you always have atleast 2 attempts per turn to hit a another turn/combat spell.
Narset, Parter of Veils is a good card but for me atleast I found a lot cards I liked more but can be a budget option JTMS. If you pla atleast 3+ wheel cards in this deck, she could be worth, but with only 2 wheels, there's lacking synergy.
JTMS is just insane and has fallen out of favor or forgiveness just like Narset, Enlightened Master, JTMS is a walkin Brainstorm and toolbox. It's a great feeling when Time Stretch is stuck in your hand and you can put it back on your deck.
Dack Fayden is also pretty good to steal your opponent's ramp pieces but I think he's the one who could maybe replaced by Winter Orb or like you mentioned Teferi, Time Raveler. I loved Teferi, but some dudes from the Narset Discord have somehow talked me out of Teferi...
Man I would really enjoy to play some 1vs1 games of different lists/cuts, to scientifically prove which list is the fastest and after that to test it in a real environment against legit decks to check which card/list is good in the current meta. (Do you have Xmage?)
I see your point on Gamble, sure this card has the opportunity to fail, but narset is just a "if you have luck you win deck" and with this cards I'm also gambling high, but yeah cards to replace gamble are: Idyllic Tutor/Merchant Scroll or like you mentioned Ponder/Preordain.
I tested Jace, Wielder of Mysteries a lot and in 99% of the time he was a dead card or not needed... when you draw your entire library you just win with Nexus of Fate/Beacon of Tomorrows but most of the time you opponents surrender before that ever happens after like your 5 extra turn... And if you really want another wincon then I would always prefer Bribery because this card is savage and in almost every cedh match somebody is playing Thassa's Oracle or another winon which you could possibly steal. Or just play the good old Approach of the Second Sun.

If you're going to run with Helix Pinnacle I suggest running Nexus of Fate and/or Beacon of Tomorrows so you can put 100 counters on Helix, cast extra turn, win. Also shuffles into library so you can just pull it again if Helix isn't out yet.
