Artifact Creature — Sphinx
When Sandstone Oracle enters the battlefield, choose an opponent. If that player has more cads in hand than you, draw cards equal to the difference.

Nice list so far! +1 from me mate.
To address your card draw worry there are some decent and some not so decent choices at your discretion. Howling Mine, Tower of Fortunes, Loreseeker's Stone, Sandstone Oracle, Farsight Mask, Phyrexian Vault, Carnage Altar, Otherworld Atlas, and Jalum Tome to name a few, hope this helped slightly

The deck looks pretty good. It has a good amount of board wipes and ramp, but I think it could be stronger with more card draw. There's Mystic Remora, Arcanis, Skullclamp, maybe Sandstone Oracle, Recurring Insight, Slate of Ancestry, Jeskai Ascendancy and Well of Lost Dreams.
Otherwise I like the control and lifegain aspects, it looks like a good partner deck. Hope this makes it stronger

Arbiter of the Ideal - Untaps cheats things into play (hits 70% of the deck)
Sandstone Oracle - ETB draw cards
Sphinx of Magosi - Activated ability draw cards
Belbe's Portal - cheat Sphinx's into play - good against other control decks
Sphinx of Jwar Isle - combos well with Conundrum Sphinx

Arch of Orazca is a low cost addition that eventually gives you a draw engine tacked onto a land.
Sandstone Oracle is another way to draw cards.
You have a lot of utility lands that sacrifice to do things. Crucible of Worlds gives repeated access to those lands/effects. Crucible combines with Inventors' Fair to make a mana intensive but powerful engine where you get to tutor for an artifact every turn. If you do decide to add Crucible then I would also recommend Haven of the Spirit Dragon. It only gets back Ugin and Steel Hellkite, but Crucible of Worlds + Haven of the Spirit Dragon + Ugin, the Spirit Dragon gives you infinite access to Ugin as long as Crucible is in play.
Homeward Path isn't always great, but it gives you a silver bullet answer to Bribery style Blue decks that want to steal your creatures, Zealous Conscripts type Red strategies, and Black decks that reanimate your scary Eldrazi. The games that Homeward Path is good, it's great. Cards like Insurrection and Rise of the Dark Realms are common and powerful finishers in Commander.
Command Beacon seems great after Ulamog has died a couple of times. Exile effects a prevalent enough in Commander that people will probably find ways to remove your Commander from the table a few times. It also works with Crucible of Worlds to keep Ulamog's casting cost at an effective 10 no matter what.
Expedition Map helps you find the utility land that is best for your given situation. Opposing Gaea's Cradle on the table? Strip Mine. Somebody just cast Bribery? Homeward Path. Early game development? Eldrazi Temple to ramp. Late game engine? Eye of Ugin.
