@ Crayfish - You, sir, have done your research!
I was actually considering adding more one-drops in here. Cutting Slippery Bogle would be counterproductive to that (promised xD) end. I'd love feedback on that, from anyone here. However, let's assume that I am not putting in those creatures for now, and I will address your comment accordingly.
You're right about Bogle. No infect, no evasion. The mana cost is not the same as a tutor would be, so it's not a purely equal cut, but it is something I will definitely consider.
As far as Viridian Corrupter goes, that's tough. I see the increased utility of Reclamation Sage, but losing infect is a hit. I feel like the infect subtheme of the list is waning. If it gets too low, then there's really no point in playing that meta. Right now there are 6 (7 if you count Thrummingbird) infect creatures in here. I really don't want to go lower than that. The takeaway: replacing Corrupter with Sage is a good move, but I will have to find somewhere else to shove a Spinebiter or something similar.
Unified Will is in there because i didn't want to be ridiculously chumpy with my counterspells. I don't want them to be too god, i suppose. My playgroup is already on the brink of flipping tables due to the deck. But cutting it for a tutor isn't a bad idea. I have a fair amount of counterspells in here that are better than this, but not op.
I totally recognize that Etched Oracle is inferior to Fathom Mage. I'm with you on that. However, card draw is still a lovely thing. That being said, I will weigh it against other creatures i would like in the build. I do disagree on Loaming Shaman. He doesn't trigger Ezuri, true, but after a wipe or just after my creatures have been killed off one by one, he puts them all back for me to use again. I rarely use Shaman offensively.
I just traded my True-Name Nemesis like last week -.- But anyhow, I won't add it because it doesn't do anything once it's down. I really want creatures that can continue to be effective and utilitarian after they hit the table. Whisperwood Elemental and Sagu Mauler have crossed my mind before. The problem with Whisperwood is that if i manifest a non-creature... well crap. I value my counterspells, as they save me from wipes. Without them, I am very exposed. Sagu Mauler and other morph creatures are definitely in the back of my mind. I'm just weighing those out, as well. What are some good targets for Progenitor Mimic? Convince me to put it in. Scute Mob is cute but is really just a target, esp. in the early game. Beguiler of Wills is control, and not really what I'm looking for here - gotta keep myself just a little nerfed in order to maintain friendships!
Your hashtag utterly and completely made me crack up. If I were able to upvote comments on this site, that'd happen. Thank you so much for all your suggestions!

A few other suggestions for you while I'm thinking about it:
-Drop Viridian Corrupter for Reclamation Sage. I know you are going for an Infect-y build, but corrupter can only rid you of an artifact, while for the same cost Reclamation Sage can also hit enchantments.
-Cut Unified Will. You can squeeze in another tutor, and the situational counter is never the greatest, depending on your meta.
-Loaming Shaman and Etched Oracle are two that I have been on the fence about for a while. Loaming Shaman doesn't trigger Ezuri, and felt very "meh" to me, but with enough tutors can be pretty powerful. Etched Oracle also seemed like a big investment to reap his rewards. You will probably trigger Ezuri with him, but you have to invest power into him that doesn't stay, unlike Fathom Mage who draws insane amounts of cards AND keeps that extra power. Its up to you on these two.
Well, thats my $0.02 for now. Enjoy! #EzernieForPraetor

Dryad ArborMox SapphireResearchYou now have 4 turns to kill me, cause you know these 4 cards are going to hurt. Maybe something fun with Cackling Counterpart, Mirror Mockery, Biovisionary or Progenitor Mimic
Elixir of Immortality could create some fun sets.
another good disrupter could be Chancellor of the Annex

Played against a deck like this before, can confirm very...flickery...

A few tweaks
- Duplicate Thornwood Falls -> Cytoplast Root-Kin (mistake)
- Ulvenwald Tracker -> Green Sun's Zenith (cracked one in EMA, not going to say no)
- Solemn Simulacrum -> Archivist (More thematic and combo-y ramp)
- Progenitor Mimic -> Seasons Past (Fun card but gimmicky and not terribly synergistic. Instead let's revive some combo pieces)

What do you suggest I take out? Mostly expensive cards or some combination across the deck? I could see cutting Mind Control, Hunt the Weak, Steady Progress, Hindervines, Archetype of Endurance, Kruphix, God of Horizons, and Progenitor Mimic.

Roccovsky, I can understand that for Phalanx Leader. The game is about having fun and if you love a card, go for it. I feel that way about Progenitor Mimic. I will put it in any Simic deck even if it doesn't really go with the theme haha.
