Okay here are my promised suggestions.
Take out Winter Orb for Winding Constrictor, Trophy Mage for Master Biomancer, Tangle Wire for Eternal Witness, remove Sun Titan for a Ajani Unyielding, Supreme Verdict for I believe As Foretold even though not covered in your list if you can acquire one of these I recommend it, otherwise add maybe Vorel of the Hull Clade.
Beyond this, swap Stasis for Hardened Scales, Shred Memory for Scavenging Ooze, Perplex for Thrummingbird, Peacekeeper for either Authority of the Consulate (Will explain why soon) or Corpsejack Menace if not, Narset Transcendent for Glen Elendra Archmage, Muddle the Mixture for Abzan Charm, Luminarch Ascension for Aura Shards, Kiora, Master of the Depths for Forgotten Ancient, Idyllic Tutor for Collective Effort, Humility for I think Archangel of Thune if you have or can get one easily the card works well when you have of course your commander and Authority of the Consuls if you choose to run that, or just Rishkar's Expertise, Fabricate for Crystalline Crawler, Aura of Silence for Prime Speaker Zegana.
You could always add in some hydras to this like Primordial Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, and Lifeblood Hydra. Some other considerations are Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel which I recommend one or more (I use both) so you don't ever have to worry about discard when you play Prime Speaker Zegana or Rishkar's Expertise. I also think you should try and add Inspiring Call which further supports having something for unlimited handsize. Oath of Ajani, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Abzan Falconer, and Chasm Skulker(good if you include all of that card draw) are a few other ideas.
When I can again I will try and help you find a place for Viral Drake and any others I missed/suggested additionally.

Thanks for the insight Firebones675. I see what you mean about Rhonas the Indomitable, but in the testing I've done so far, I think the most difficult gods to activate are actually Thassa, God of the Sea and Kefnet the Mindful. Currently, all the permanents that add to blue devotion are relatively costly and don't activate Thassa until mid-late game. Also with the amount of ramp it is easy to empty your hand quickly, deactivating kefnet. Although it is usually just as easily refilled, sometimes activating him does pose a problem. Also, I think it is important to note that Kefnet is always a creature unlike the devotion gods and therefore he does activate Rhonas. Also while Rhonas' +2/+0 ability for 3 seems a little expensive, it is usually quite effective for activating himself when there's a Kiora's Follower on the board. Regarding Overbeing of Myth, I think it could be a great fit, but I will have to do some testing to see how it compares to Prime Speaker Zegana, and Zendikar Resurgent. Right now I'm thinking it will take the spot of the latter, but depending on how well it performs it might take both spots. Again, thanks for the input!

Cthu1uS4uru5R3x I had actually considered him but due to the power of the deck it starts off going really slow so I had to compensate by putting smaller Creatures in place of him. I also had Prime Speaker Zegana in the original but she was slowing it down as well.

Abres_Tenelles I think zameck might make it into the deck just because its very low cost and has extra synergy with the deck. Originally the atraxa pre-con comes with Bred for the Hunt, but I took it out because it's very situational. Also Fathom Mage was originally in the deck but I just didn't like it for 4 mana. Prime Speaker Zegana is amazing, I would play it but it's not an optional draw and I could easily deck myself if I'm on the dredge route.

Zameck Guildmage could still be good I feel. But appreciate the colour drawback of it.

No, because it is not a triggered ability and it does not target. Prime Speaker Zegana has a replacement effect that modifies how it enters. It is not yet on the battlefield to count for devotion when you look for the greatest power among creatures you control. The above answer from chosenone124 would be correct if the ability read "When Prime Speaker Zegana enters the battlefield, put +1/+1 counters on it equal to the greatest power among creatures you control" instead of "Prime Speaker Zegana enters the battlefield with an additional X +1/+1 counters, where X is the greatest power among creatures you control."

If I have three devotion to blue and have Thassa, God of the Sea on the battlefield, then I cast Prime Speaker Zegana giving me five devotion to blue, would Thassa become a creature before Zegana's ability triggers?
