I'm also not set on Etherium Sculptor , sure it might make stuff cheaper but is that actually needed? It doesn't help fueling your commander directly. I'd rather have a controlly (stax/counterspell) or cantrip/extra draw there like Impulse .
Finally I'm not set on Recurring Insight I get that this is a fallback option if you run out of gas. However if you try to "hard cast" it it leaves you fully open: you probably have used all your mana, or have one or two mana left to counter things.
I'd much rather play Blue Sun's Zenith if we wish to refuel during combo (as it can also be used for a wincon on itself if the rest gets exiled), or Thirst for Knowledge as card advantage - that one gives simply midgame a way to dig, without leaving you without mana.

Hey its PJ from Commander Replay. I took a look at the deck. I don't usually look at things this early in development but heres some stuff you might be interested in. Id probably add in just a bit more cost reduction, cards like Pearl Medallion , or Herald's Horn . Card draw is also super important for a deck like this, i would look at some options that can draw you multiple cards. Maybe some cards Kindred Discovery , Recurring Insight or perhaps some power based card draw like Soul's Majesty , Rishkar's Expertise . Id probably cut the number of creatures to somewhere around 28-30. You will also want some removal or form of interaction Rapid Hybridization , Pongify , Reality Shift , or Cyclonic Rift , maybe even an Evacuation if you wanted to try and retrigger altar of the brood... not sure about that interaction though. Also a Fabricate or Whir of Invention might be good to find thrumming stone. Anyway theres a few suggestions to get you going. Best of luck

Had another look. I like:
Tezzeret's Gambit . Can become a free spell, draws cards, AND you can use proliferate on your experience counters. Fantastic.
Thousand-Year Storm . Expensive, but great if you resolve it.
Treasure Cruise . Very easily a 1-mana draw 3.
Volcanic Vision . This just looks like good value.
Recurring Insight . Draw!
Precognition Field . Playing the top of yoyr library is like always having an extra card in your hand. The exile allows you to ensure you don't draw any dud cards if you have the spare mana.
There's a bunch other good cards there too. Most of the lands I see are good.

I agree with leven110 here, your deck needs a lot of mana. All of your big card draw uses X in their mana cost, so they'll be stuck in your hand for many many turns. Maybe add something a bit cheaper such as Recurring Insight? For consistency, Brainstorm, Ponder, and Preordain are all pretty amazing imho.
For a deck with that many spells with big costs, 35 lands is also pretty low, and you could probably comfortably go up to 38 to get your land drops more consistently. I would also personally definitely put in Rhystic Study if I could. Maybe also cut some countermagic? 14 is a lot, and considering you're very low on boardwipes (the only one I'm seeing is Cyclonic Rift), maybe switch a few counterspells for a red boardwipe?
As for the mana problem, Braid of Fire is pretty amazing with the X spells, and if you get it out early it'll help you out tons casting those big spells early.
Hope this helps :)
