Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, you got me back into hardcore brewing mode! I have been workshopping this deck for a long time and am excited about the direction it has taken. Although the deck could be slightly more consistent without it, I am proud of how well the decks sub theme of playing other peoples cards is integrated.
First off, I dove head long into solving the card draw problem. I added your suggestions: Hedron Archive, Outpost Siege, Arch of Orazca, and Humble Defector. I also took on the card draw challenge by changing the deck up a little bit and going big mana/artifact. I added cards like Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Curse of Opulence, and Ugin, the Ineffable. (Ugin can be a powerhouse in this deck with almost half the spells being colorless.) With having more mana I added spells like The Immortal Sun and Tower of Fortunes which can now be played and/or activated far earlier than their respective curve.
Personally I am not a fan of Plainswalkers as a whole in the game of MtG. I don't like the way they slow down the game. I added Ugin mainly for his passive ability, with the bonus of his card draw, but otherwise have shied away from plainswalkers in most of my decks. Thus, Chandra, Torch of Defiance isn't really my cup of tea. I even opted for The Immortal Sun instead of Staff of Nin in order to shut down others plainswalkers.
I added Buried Ruin, it was a great reccomendation.
I have opted away from Goblin Matron since I have very few Goblins and it feels more situational in that case.
I have been debating Flametongue Kavu since the beginning but just couldn't figure out what I wanted to get rid of to add it. But with all of the positive feedback I have seen on that card I am finally hopping on the bandwagon!
I am still debating Volcanic Offering. I think it will depend on my playgroup more than anything. Kind of a side board card for me.
Your Norin deck is fantastic as well, I enjoyed looking it over. I will right a few suggestions I have in the comments soon!

what a punny title. I really like the deck, and if you aren't on a budget or have Christmas cash to spare. I would suggest Jace, the Mind Sculptor as he is even better than normal in this deck. otherwise, I really like where this brew is going, and I really wouldn't change much, however I would add The Locust God or Tower of Fortunes .
I might cut cards like Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries bc I don't foresee you decking even when drawing that many cards, and the two cards I mentioned above could easily replace those without affecting the decks performance in a negative way.

Think you had mentioned that you already have Cascade Bluffs on the way, and Spire of Industry was a possibility we talked about, and you might want to consider Castle Vantress . I think now is about the time that you'll want to start honing in on what you want the deck to have a focus on; given the push for eldrazi and X spells, I think you could drop Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Thopter Engineer . I'd personally cut Reverse Engineer , Saheeli's Artistry , and Masterful Replication and start looking into more payoffs for Saheeli's +1. You may want to consider one or two of the following for casting on other people's turns to avoid as much trouble on your own turn: Shimmer Myr , Vedalken Orrery , and/or Leyline of Anticipation ; these will also play well into Unwinding Clock . I think Palladium Myr is droppable given if it doesn't have haste it's functionally a Worn Powerstone , and Pristine Talisman , Prismatic Lens , and Izzet Locket can be pretty underwhelming. Blue Sun's Zenith and Expansion / Explosion are draw spells that use Saheeli's ability as a payoff, and BSZ will shuffle back in. If you want more draw, Slate of Ancestry is good if you find yourself with a lot of creatures, Tower of Fortunes if you end up with a lot of extra mana to spend, and Loreseeker's Stone if you find yourself empty-handed most of the time.

DemonDragonJ: Tower of Fortunes is pretty bad. Personally I would stick with stuff like Arcane Encyclopedia . Also, Mind's Eye is pretty good (and the high initial cost is still less than that of Urza's Blueprints ).

I would like to see Tower of Fortunes in this set, since it has not been reprinted in some time, as well as Urza's Blueprints , since that card has never been reprinted, at all, and I am certain that it would look great in the new card frame.

griffstick, yes, that card is awesome, and all of my EDH decks that do not contain planeswalkers, which is most of them, have that card.
enpc, I actually did have Tower of Fortunes in some of my EDH decks, briefly, but the high cost of its ability made me remove it; however, 8 mana for four cards averages out to 2 mana per card, which is better than both Jayemdae Tome (4 mana per card) and Arcane Encyclopedia (3 mana per card), so I wonder if it is worth reconsidering?
