If you are going to go with mostly Eldrazi as creatures you should add some more artifacts, as you really want to be able to maximize saheeli's second ability since its both her best ability and the one that synergizes with the Eldrazi.
Creatures Add Bane of Bala Ged Meteor Golem Myr Battlesphere Pilgrim's Eye Solemn Simulacrum Burnished Hart Endbringer Ulamog's Crusher Soul of New Phyrexia (maybe) Barrage Tyrant (maybe) Remove Thopter Engineer Other Daretti, Scrap Savant Fabricate Thirst for Knowledge Propaganda Remove Mystic Remora

Hey, I really like this deck idea. I had planned to make a budget Commander deck (haven't got around to it yet) with one of the new Commanders, like I do every year and Aminatou has peaked my interest. I like the Solar Flare theme here, but I don't see enough enablers to match all cards for reanimation. You have plenty of reanimation, but only Fact or Fiction and Forbidden Alchemy to get cards into the graveyard.
Consider Windfall, Thirst for Knowledge, Frantic Search, Careful Study and Stitcher's Supplier? The bonus of most of these cards is not only do they put cards into your graveyard, but you also draw cards. Supplier is a creature you can blink to get cards into your graveyard can also be reanimated with Sun Titan.
A powerful interaction of Solar Flare when it was in Standard was Sun Titan and Phantasmal Image. Being able to reanimate Phantasmal with Titan then copy Titan and reanimate something else. Mirror Image is a card in M19 that can also do this since it can be reanimated by Titan.
I like the Miracle strategy with Aminatou's +1 ability. Consider Archaeomancer? Can blink her to get back a card with Miracle or any other instant or sorcery. Can then use Aminatou's ability to put the card with Miracle on top of your library.
As far as the nine cards you need to cut I'll base my suggestions on cards that are not as good as other cards that do the same thing in the deck. Not that the cards I suggest are not good, but they're not as good as other options already here.
Consider these cuts (in no order):
- Emancipation Angel
- Solemn Recruit
- Sawtooth Loon
- Increasing Devotion
- Obzedat's Aid
- Wrath of God
- Sage of Epityr
Good luck with your deck.

cutting athreos and thassa for lands would be an easy way to make this deck stronger
also elixir of immortality is usually worse than just playing another card that fills your graveyard

Okay, I get it... Hmmm.
This combo needs 4 cards to go infinite, and 5 cards to win instantly. Out of all of these cards, Whirler Virtuoso is the only one that is somewhat good on its own.
On top of the combo itself being pretty clunky, you've got a lot of clunky support cards. Fabricate doesn't really accomplish anything. It techically does, but you use 3 mana and a card, to get another card. If can play that card right away, or it causes you to win the turn after or something, Fabricate might have been pretty useful, but if that't not the case, it's very close to being, pay three mana, do nothing.
Mechanized Production - Does do something for you, it's just slow and clunky.
I don't think 20 lands is enough with a curve like this.
If you want it to be competitive, I suggest you find another, more simple combo, one that needs fewer pieces, which is probably the optimal choice, or you keep where you're heading and you streamline the crap out of this list.
And then you focus on getting cards that work along side your combo pieces. Decoction Module will always be trash, you can't run from that, but it'll be included as a necessay evil in order to get the combo online.
You could play Mind Stone to speed up things, and get a draw in the lategame. You could play Trinket Mage, which supports Panharmonicon. Out of Trinket, you could then include a couple silver bullet cards like Pithing Needle to take care of planeswalker when you need to, Altar of the Brood to make your combo win on the spot, Brittle Effigy as searchable removal, Walking Ballista as a your late game and Relic of Progenitus as anti grave.

Just came up with two other questions:

Nathanaiel: Dictate of Kruphix would be a good card, good enough that it might even warrant replacing Cryptic Serpent in one of the flex spots. While going down a creature or two is risky, being able to find answers faster and grow Chasm Skulker or flip Thing in the Ice Flip faster might be worth it.
Thirst for Knowledge is also good, being an instant rather than a sorcery. I could swap out Chart a Course for it, as drawing and discarding an extra card for only one extra mana is a lot more value, especially considering it helps turn on Temporal Trespass and Cryptic Serpent faster. I'm just not sure if I can afford to pay that extra one mana, I'll have to playtest it and see which one works better.

Also there are cards like Thirst for Knowledge (which is an instant) that allow you to draw/discard a disproportionately large amount of cards for the manacost. I assume you want to stay in mono-blue, but Faithless Looting and similar cards would be amazing in this deck I reckon.
