I love all the Orzhov goodstuff you have in here. Have you thought about putting in Oketra's Last Mercy? If you don't cast any other spells, it basically costs 6 mana and reads "Gain life until you get to 40" which isn't bad at all.

I tried building a deck similar to this a while back... it put up a good fight, but couldn't quite last long enough to get enough clues into play.
I used Anointed Procession in my deck in order to speed up the clue generation, but it didn't really help against control decks of those with enchantment removal.
I also tried Declaration in Stone as you can also target your own Thraben Inspectors in order to get an extra clue or two if you need it, although I never got to use it that way myself.
A couple of cards I've been considering for my deck are Gideon's Intervention which is a great sideboard card, and can permanently prevent your opponent from playing enchantment removal... and Oketra's Last Mercy simply as a way to buy a bit of extra time to get the last clues you need (and not un-tapping land isn't too much of a problem when you're using improvise).
Now that I think about it, Mirage Mirror may be worth considering as well... I believe you can respond to Mechanized Production's ability going on the stack by activating the Mirror's ability to copy a clue in order to give yourself an extra clue for when Production's ability resolves... plus, it can be used to copy an opponent's creature if you need to block something.

Nice deck, +1! I don't think you need the Eldritch Evolution in there. Yes, it does help you tutor for Regal Caracal, but that's the only card that even slightly needs it. I would switch that out for some removal, like main-boarding Cast Out and siding Authority of the Consuls instead of it. You also really shouldn't need so much lifegain, mostly as Oketra's Last Mercy is a pretty meh card, that can't really be used in all circumstances. I would take those out for maybe one or two Ajani Unyielding for removal, and searching for your better creatures(that you would have used Eldritch Evolution to find) while drawing the opponent's attacks away from you. All in all, great deck!

I love the deck, Ayli is awesome.Have you considered Oketra's Last Mercy as a means for regaining what you use for card draw shenanigans? Drop real low, then swing back? Also, Athreos, God of Passage do anything for you? I would remove Authority of the Consuls to make room for itVampire Hexmage is hilarious for planeswalkers.

Port Town and Prairie Stream need to be the next upgrades. You have a lot of double costed cards and just having basics will lead to very awkward hands in terms of being able to cast things on time. Not being able to cast a turn 4 Dusk//Dawn because you drew 3 islands and a Ipnu Rivulet will lose you a lot of games. That's just one example but you get the point.
Oketra's Last Mercy doesn't seem worth it. You probably just want to play another board wipe such as Fumigate or even Engulf the Shore. Gideon also doesn't fit the deck...at all really. Sure it can buy you a turn or two but he doesn't help you progress your board or mill you opponent. Also, look into the card Unsummon. You want cheap cards to disrupt or out tempo your opponent. You also have zero card draw or card selection. Card's like Glimmer of Genius, Censor for the cycling, and Supreme Will would all be great here. Edifice of Authority and Pacification Array seem great on paper but lose to go wide strategies, Bristling Hydra, Abrade and other artifact removal. They just aren't worth the card in constructed formats. Limited? Edifice of Authority is one of the best cards you can open.
Hope this helped. Let me know if you have questions or if you just disagree with everything I just said, I'll be happy to discuss.

I have to agree with LittleBlueHero that Unquenchable Thirst is an all-star. I played 2x Unquenchable Thirst, Compulsory Rest, Cast Out, Lay Claim, bounce spells like Galestrike, Unsummon, Consign / Oblivion, Failure / Comply, and some of the white burn spells. Keeping their creatures on the battlefield is a really mean way to tease your opponent hahaha

Have you considered the new Oketra's Last Mercy? If you're below 20 it counts as life gain :)
