Dream Cache is really just a bad brainstorm.

Conch Horn does this as well but high cmc for the ability

Riverwise Augur is a brainstorm on legs

and I'm going to assume you have already got a Mystical Tutor but Personal Tutor is slightly less known

InutilisVisEst: I see. For the lower cmc, I do run Baleful Strix which serves a similar function as Elite Guardmage . Probably the only creature I could see challenging Cloudblazer 's spot is Riverwise Augur .

hullos, good ideas, but I think you didn't read Clone Legion well, since it can also copy an opponents board, I will still probably take it out, because its too expensive, also, Riverwise Augur goes infinite with Karn's Temporal Sundering , so I may keep him in for just a while.

a few weaker cards in the deck are: Riverwise Augur , Clone Legion , Jace's Sanctum , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots (one or the other).

Riverwise Augur : you want to be playing your commander on turn four and this guy does not get enough value to play after or in place of kefnet on turn four.

Clone Legion : most of the creatures you have would die from the legendary rule and you rarely will have good cards to copy with it.

Jace's Sanctum : same problem as Riverwise Augur

Nezahal, Primal Tide : this guy is not bad but seems that he might just get hit with a kill spell as soon as he hits the board because your deck has few other good targets. there might be better cards to take out than this guy.

Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots you really don't need both of these since you already have some counter spells to protect your guys on board to both seems like overkill.

those are just my suggestion on cards to take out, it is still your deck take out what you want to.

I'm not sure how good this suggestion will be, but here goes - You may want to consider adding Telling Time (though note, putting a card into your hand is different from drawing), a land or two since you want to hit 4 mana pretty regularly, and maaaaaaybe Noxious Revival if you want to reuse your miracles. Riverwise Augur is a possible option though it seems pretty slow.

Drowned Secrets triggers when you cast a blue spell. Naban, Dean of Iteration will not double that trigger when you cast Riverwise Augur because casting a blue spell is not the same thing as a Wizard entering the battlefield causing an ETB trigger to trigger. You would still get two Augur triggers because of Naban, but they do not interact with Drowned Secrets any differently than normal.

Psychic Corrosion triggers when you draw a card, not when a creature enters the battlefield. Riverwise Augur entering the battlefield doesn't trigger Psychic Corrosion , its ETB resolving does. This is important because if someone were to Stifle the Augur's ETB, Corrosion will never trigger.

Riverwise Augur does have an ETB ability and is a Wizard. Naban, Dean of Iteration sees a Wizard entering the battlefield that causes an ETB ability of a permanent you control (the Augur) to trigger, and thus causes that ability to trigger a second time.

Each Riverwise Augur trigger causes you to draw three cards, triggering Psychic Corrosion three times, milling six cards off of your opponent's library (putting two cards back doesn't matter in this case). Because Naban doubled the Augur trigger, you'll draw another three cards and mill another six off your opponent, for a total of 12 cards milled.
