You might use Soul Conduit with Ogre to get mana AND screw someone up.
EDIT: W8! You don't run Reiterate? Its infinite mana combo if You get to 11 mana by yourself.

Now for some cuts:Gamble is bad, and it will make you feel bad. If you want a tutor, you are better off using a cheap black one. Increasing Ambition is a card you can use for example. Cabal Ritual and Dark Ritual are only good for Torment of Hailfire and otherwise they suck in your deck. I'd only keep them if you want your wincon for your deck to be casting and copying cards with big effects like that such as in Cruel Ultimatum, Ribbons, or Exsanguinate, which you could make your wincon, but you'd have to change around your deck. Izzet Charm is a storm card, you don't want this. Secrets of the Dead is way too slow. Just putting in a Sire of Stagnation or something would be most of the time way more efficient.Jace's Sanctum, while not bad, should be replaced by a card coming in Ixalan, Primal Amulet.
I think that the biggest problem with this deck is that it doesn't know how to win. Control with Kess can win in two ways. 1. Infinite Combo (with Laboratory Maniac and Demonic Consultation, Kokusho, the Evening Star and Rite of Replication, or some variation of the Splinter Twin combo). 2. Winning off of either one-shotting or hitting hard over a few turns with cards like Torment of Hailfire that I mentioned before, preferably copying those spells with Increasing Vengeance or Reiterate. You could put an infinite mana combo using Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator in too if you want to go that route.
This should cover most of my complaints. If you still need more things to cut, you probably don't need so many one mana draw spells. They get worse the more there are in your deck. You should really only be using them for the occasional extra draw with Kess when you have nothing to do with her, so only keep the most efficient ones like Gitaxian Probe and Brainstorm, etc.

How about Smoke? I've been running low creature (actually creatureless) Keranos and it is really good to have onboard.Also Decree of Annihilation clears EVERYTHING but enchantments, so Keranos stays and lets you get back into play faster than others.

Swarm Intelligence and Mirari for copying spells. Archaeomancer can allow you to reuse your instants and sorceries, especially with a kicked Rite of Replication, allowing you to get the Rite back and up to 4 other spells from your graveyard. Similar value can be had with Clone Legion, especially if an opponent has a creature that can recur the spell, like the Archaeomancer or Eternal Witness. Fork, Reverberate, and Reiterate are great for copying your bigger spells, sometime twice with Kess if you have the mana. Turnabout and Mana Geyser can get you the mana you need to help cast some of your bigger spells with fork effects, especially if you have Swarm Intelligence and/or the Mirari. Drain Power can be used similarly but it also taps your opponents down, which you can use with the Mana Geyser to make more mana. If just tapping down your opponents is what you care about, Mana Short is a non-ramping version of Drain Power.

This looks neat. I noticed fork in your maybes and their are some other similar cards if you are interested in that effect: Dualcaster Mage, Wild Ricochet, Reverberate, Reiterate. I really like reiterate because buyback.
