Read the Runes
Draw X cards. For each card drawn this way, discard a card unless you sacrifice a permanent.

For Tomorrow, I was thinking of Read the Runes 'for each card drawn this way' and guess I got mixed up.
As for Iname, my mind has been blown.

I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.
There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.
Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

Okay, this list will probably be long so I'll see if I can break it up.
Eldrazi Conscription - expensive, but powerful aura
Spectra Ward - usually makes bruna unblockable
Spirit Mantle - usually makes bruna unblockable
Temple of the False God - land ramp, usually nice
Hedron Archive - ramp that turns into card draw if needed
Tons of tons of cards tutor enchantments, so consider those as well.

Yo S1ayerMonkey, some cards you can consider using:
- Torchling / Morphling - More protection
- Thousand-Year Elixir - Good both caged and un-caged
- Cavern Harpy - 1 life to bounce back Mairsil as well as can stack
- Anger - Haste to activate Mairsil right away
I would also suggest some synergy cards like Read the Runes as you don't really care what cards go into your grave, as well as Notion Thief when you do your wheel effects. Overall Mairsil is a damn fun commander :P
