Why are you thinking about removing the Hellkite? Is it the high CMC?

Other lower CMC options that do similar things include the following: Gibbering Fiend, Keldon Marauders, Impact Tremors, Forgeborn Oreads, Keldon Champion, Foundry Champion, Blind Hunter, Bloodhunter Bat, Dakmor Ghoul, Grim Guardian, Pierce Strider, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Outpost Siege. Personally, I think Gibbering Fiend and Keldon Marauders are the best. They're super low CMC, so you can play them much earlier in the game and start pinging the opponent for more damage sooner.

Invader Parasite is another option, if you don't mind not having any friends. Just make sure you don't accidentally exile all of your own lands, too.

Steal effects! With all your sac outlets, they're great. Zealous Conscripts, Conquering Manticore, Helm of Possession, and Molten Primordial are all awesome. And the king: Insurrection, winner of games.

Speaking of sac outlets: Bosh, Iron Golem can throw Feldon's tokens, which keep their CMC. Altar of Dementia does a lot of work. Skullclamp is a good compliment to sac outlets. and High Market+Phyrexia's Core are great when you need them. Also, Kuldotha Forgemaster can be neat.

Low impact token spells like Myr Sire and Mogg War Marshal aren't worth it; you'll have plenty of disposable tokens via Feldon, and those dudes ain't worth reanimating.

Don't bother with small time life gain/loss effects, they're not good in EDH. Bottle Gnomes, Peace Strider, Pierce Strider, and Bubbling Cauldron aren't good for you.

You can't buff Etched Champion much, except for like 1 modular creature. That makes it pretty so-so. I'd cut it.

A bit dubious of Chief of the Foundry, it seems pretty low impact, considering you aren't usually going to have a huge number of artifact creatures; Feldon's thing is having 1 big guy.

One time effects either have to be amazing, reuseable somehow, or draw a card to replace to be worth your time in EDH. You have to get VALUE. So I'd cut Panic Attack and Malevolent Whispers.

You probably will never get all the Urza lands in 1 place, and it can be very bad to have them not be mountains at times. I'd cut em.

I also notice that your ramp suite is very small. Acceleration is important. Commander's Sphere, MindStone, Unstable Obelisk, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, and Gilded Lotus are a few excellent options.

You also need to deal with enchantments: helpful things include Spine of Ish Sah, Unstable Obelisk, All Is Dust, and Chaos Warp

If you want to drop a bit of money into the deck, then Rings of Brighthearth and Sneak Attack are amazing.

You're in the colors for Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel. Both cards fit well into your deck. It opens up the "Oops? I guess I win!" with turn four Restoration Angel -> blink a guy -> untap -> Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker -> go infinite. Both cards are stronger than Foundry Champion, Geist-Honored Monk, and Pierce Strider.

Mogg War Marshal is another card I think would be great in your deck. You end up triggering Impact Tremors 3 times.

Reveillark hits everything in your deck that's important. Blade Splicer, Wall of Omens, and the above suggestions of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker/Mogg War Marshal.

I second Yourman's suggestion of Norin the Wary.

Lastly, I wouldn't play Vexing Devil. Path to Exile is way too useful to be playing a card that won't always do what you want it to. With Eerie Interlude, your opponent will always let you have the 4/3. Or, your Vexing Devil will have died and you won't be able to blink it.

Once you've cut Vexing Devil and moved Path to Exile to the main, that will free up sideboard slots for some of the more ridiculous hate cards. Kor Firewalker, Stony Silence, Wear / Tear, Rest in Peace, Roast, etc. can then be added.

Really cool deck! I'm anxious to see how it turns out and what types of results you get.
