Timestream Navigator Discussion

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is really good for full board swings especially in big multiplayer EDH. You also might like Genesis Chamber and Myr Battlesphere to make more 1/1 Myrs fast and have a nice beater later on alongside Thopter Assembly. If your deck lends itself to playing even more artifacts you might wanna check out Thopter Spy Network and Efficient Construction.
Looking at Edric decks for ideas, you might want to try running budget extra turn spells to finish off games with full swings like Temporal Trespass, Part the Waterveil, Karn's Temporal Sundering (needs a legend out), and even Timestream Navigator. Down the line you'd probably want Walk the Aeons.
Lastly, some other mono-blue goodies, Fact or Fiction, Abjure, Deprive, Toothy, Imaginary Friend, Dreamscape Artist, Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar, Imprisoned in the Moon, Monastery Siege, and Mystic Remora.

Have to figure out what kind-of combos your looking for, blue can easily Infinite Mana, Infinite Turns, Infinite Burn, Infinite Mill, "You win the game"... etc, usually try and focus on one to build up the synergy / consistency.
Some that I can see that would be easy,
You have Turnabout, add Reiterate an easy Infinite mana combo. Usually you'll seen enablers like Blue Sun's Zenith or Stroke of Genius, but you do have Starstorm & Devil's Play. Comet Storm is also very good because it's an Instant. If you go this way Firemind's Foresight can Tutor the win-con Reiterate + Comet Storm + Mystical Tutor > Turnabout.
Brainstorm is Instant, and puts cards back into your library, it's a must include.
Thought Vessel also good, it's a Mana source, so good, but also gives you unlimited hand size.
Mizzix's Mastery can usually stabilize later in the game too. Reality Spasm goes Infinite mana with Nivix Guildmage just as often as Turnabout does. Merchant Scroll can Tutor Turnabout (or Firemind's Foresight if you end up going that win-con tutor route)
Fissure Vent seems like a High CMC for an Artifact/Land, some specific land your after in your pod?
Assuming some of these are cards you owned/have, there are definitely some upgrades out there:
Timestream Navigator seems like a lot of work, mana, and no haste. Temporal Mastery? Is there a combo you have for this guy to recur infinitely or something? Imperial Recruiter can tutor him. So could Muddle the Mixture.
Since you have Traumatize, you may also want to consider Tunnel Vision it can tutor a card in your library, or it can hit an opponents library. With Jace, the Mindsculptor's +2 it can remove their entire library too. (or Vendilion Clique both options expensive)
A few ideas to consider anyways, cheers, +1

I've been building a similar deck hadn't thought about the Pili-Pala combo might add it. I have a Ghostly Flicker and a Fauna Shaman in mine. Flicker combos with drake and witness effects for infinite mana. I use Shaman to find Timestream Navigator and equip it with Lightning Greaves to take infinite turns.

I actully like this setup. I agree that its a little unfocussed. I reccomned one change- A transformative sideboard rather than an 'answers' sideboard.
'Side 15' sounds like a bad joke, but 15 cards is enough to completely transform from tempo to control, and can transform bad matchups by drastically moving your critical turns. Even against matchups that 'demand' specific answers (dredge, tron), a lot can be done just by shifting the kind of deck that you are- tron has issues if you just combo out, dredge has issues if you run more bounce effects etc.
Even if you're siding in the same 15 cards each game, if you're removing 'dead' cards from your deck you are creating a big advantage. It really helps maintain that 'diverse' feeling with less performance impact.
Getting used to switching out different cards for different gameplans in that way will also help further refine your mainboard, by identifying cards you're always removing (or never enjoying) and spotting cards you're always reintroducing.
In terms of how that transformative board is structured, I'd hide a set of Geist of Saint Traft in there, (as a clock against high-interaction decks, which the wizard tribe is unfortunately lacking), and run spells that you're plainly considering maindeck- your wraths, extra bounce tools, and wizards. I'd even go so far as to hide a Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir/Knowledge Pool lock as a 2-of, or run Vedalken AEthermage for wizardcycling to fetch a similar low-key combo. Augur of Bolas is also well worth a look,while less efficient that snappy, and sorcery speed, works wonders as extra functional copies.
Also, for fun, flavour-filled cards with various viability; (with some synergy!) check out Fatespinner, Glen Elendra Pranksters, Jace's Archivist Lullmage Mentor Meddling Mage Mistbind Clique Mistmeadow Witch Mizzium Meddler, Naban, Dean of Iteration Sage of Fables Sigil Tracer Simic Manipulator Spellstutter Sprite Talrand, Sky Summoner Timestream Navigator Treasure Mage Venser, Shaper Savant and Voidmage Prodigy.

Your description of the Bloodline Necromancer Ashnod's Altar combo was what prompted me to add it to my Inalla deck. This combo can actually start off with just 2B if you have another Wizard, and can also make infinite tokens of the other Wizard in the process.
Not sure if you're in the market for more infinite combos, but Twinflame works very nicely with Dualcaster Mage for infinite hasty tokens. Cloudstone Curio can also let you repeatedly cast cheap Wizards if you have Paradox Engine. Curio also combos with Timestream Navigator for infinite turns.
You can check out my Inalla deck with these combos and more, would love to hear your thoughts.

I like the idea of taking the usual UR wizards shell and expanding it to have a little more longevity. Since youre going to push games a little longer, Timestream Navigator might be something to look into, it wouldnt work too well in an aggro deck but it might be something to try for this deck.
