Hey, cool list! However, your deck is extremely linear, all it does is its own thing with zero ways to defend or disrupt. I don't know how much experience you have with Modern, but against decks like Storm, Affinity or Eldrazi that might not work out - if both decks just do their own thing, theirs is faster and more powerful.
You have a playset Eldritch Evolution in your deck. This means that adding a single copy of a creature to your deck basically plays like having five of them in the deck. Which you can then copy a bunch of times with all of your Clone effects. So, if you have a single Reclamation Sage to find in your maindeck against a deck like Affinity, it massively improves your chances.
What I am trying to say is, in order to make the best use of Eldritch Evolution, you should include a couple of silverbullet creatures to find when you are in trouble (some maindeck, some sideboard). I suggest Reclamation Sage, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scavenging Ooze, Phyrexian Revoker, Sower of Temptation and Profaner of the Dead. Another fantastic option is Thought-Knot Seer, but you would need at least four Yavimaya Coast in the deck so you could cast it when it's in your hand.
I think I would also try and find room for Oath of Nissa and/or Serum Visions in your deck, they help you control your draws to some degree and assemble your combo faster.

These are options from EDRec.com

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant - Tutors on a death touch beater.

Drowned Catacomb - Great land.

Havengul Lich

Living Death

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Tainted Isle

Choked Estuary

Lich Lord of Unx

Forgotten Creation WOW, this card seems great for this deck.

Rhystic Study - Please don't.

CARD I AM NOT TOO FOND OF:

Stoneforge Masterwork - I think you would get more value from a Zombie Lord.

Profaner of the Dead - This card seems out of place. What are you looking for this card to do?

Smuggler's Copter - There are simple and better ways to filter/draw.

Bone Splinters - There is better spot removal. Never

Drunau Corpse Trawler - Lack luster.

Siren of the Silent Song - A potential cut.

This is a very cool deck, I like :)

Have you ever considered Profaner of the Dead for this? It would do quite a lot for you I think.

@Iron_Cube: Yeah, I just thought that there is enough synergy so that being a wizard might be enough. Of course there are better additions.

Inundate looks nice and if I decide to make room for another sweeper this will go in! (It's only sorcery speed though...) Almost forgot about Fatespinner - definitely need to find some space for this cutie. Profaner of the Dead seems kind of meh to me. Most of my creatures have low power and are therefore bad targets to exploit.

This looks pretty controlling but I like that it is all about bouncing, my favorite form of control in blue! Not sure if I'm excited to play against this, haha, but it'd be a fun challenge once you get it tuned (Zada's horde might cry).

To use Heidar's ability sooner and multiple times I'd add Thousand-Year Elixir, Magewright's Stone, Fatestitcher, Retreat to Coralhelm, and Lightning Greaves.

You said draw could be better so why not do a wizard sub-theme? This obviously means including Azami. But guys like AEther Adept, Aven Augur, Barrin, Master Wizard, Cephalid Constable, Echo Tracer, Profaner of the Dead, etc. play well within a bouncing theme. They can give you the bounce control you need until Heidar is up and running and be draw/chump blockers before/after that.

Distant Melody, Rush of Knowledge, and Flow of Ideas could net 5+ cards most times.

Archaeomancer, Snapcaster Mage, and Scrivener to get back some of your spells for another round of fun.

If going the wizard tribal route the adding of Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, and Docent of Perfection  Flip will quickly close out an empty board.

I know there's a bunch of pet cards in here that I'm unaware of so let me know if you want me to suggest cuts and I will. I realize too I'm suggesting altering your deck a bunch but I think it'd be more consistent this way while still being quite unique compared to other tribal wizard builds.

It was more of a joke based on the title, and Fugitive Wizard is considered bad because it's a 1/1 for 1, and no ability. A wizard with no ability probably doesn't deserve to be called a wizard. If you need it for tribal synergy it's there, but other cards would be better, like Mothdust Changeling or anything else. In EDH 1 drop creatures are usually bad unless they have great abilities (Mother of Runes, etc.)

Now I'll try to find some constructive suggestions... Starting with Inundate because one sided board wipe are always nice. Profaner of the Dead is similar and I really like it. Also Fatespinner could definitely annoy your opponents...

Mistblade Shinobi, Ninja of the Deep Hours, Cephalid Constable could be good. Especially with your commander

Aether Gale, AEther Mutation, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Displacement Wave, Distorting Wake, Profaner of the Dead, Reality Strobe lol do this!, Scourge of Fleets, Words of Wind (very good if you start swarming with edric/bident of thassa out)

you might want Lifegift as well, people be gunning for blue decks!
