Without knowing the color identy of your deck or seeing your list it is very hard to help you but in blue I use these:

Well of Ideas ,

Mystic Remora ,

Rhystic Study obviously,

you can also use Kami of the Crescent Moon .

My friends also use these:

Kefnet the Mindful ,

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip,

Azami, Lady of Scrolls .

Hope that helps.

It appears that you lack some serious card draw. Rhystic Study is solid if you have any laying around. Sai, Master Thopterist would be thematic for the deck. Other options include Kami of the Crescent Moon , Well of Ideas , and Dictate of Kruphix . Yes, these options benefit your opponents, too, but if you chose to run Smothering Tithe , they would benefit your all the more. There are good card draw options in , too, like Greed , Vampiric Rites , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, and even something like Thallid Soothsayer (although not on theme at all). A staple card draw engine when playing token strategies is Skullclamp .

Hope this helps some. Probably not what you wanted to hear (more cards to add), but card draw sure helps with smoother game play.

You may play around Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis 's ability. Tatyova, Benthic Druid will give you extra card draw whenever you get a land on the field. Reliquary Tower is cheap now, and works wonders. You surely will have 5 lands on turn 4, so Temple of the False God is really good.

You should also consider Azorius Chancery , Boros Garrison , Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary , Simic Growth Chamber , Izzet Boilerworks . You play your untapped land for the turn normally, then play one of those with K&T's ability. You get ahead of mana since these lands tap for 2 mana.

Krosan Verge , Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland are good for ramping when you have nothing else to do.

I suggest removing Azorius Guildgate , Blossoming Sands , Boros Guildgate , Gruul Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , Simic Guildgate , Tranquil Cove , Vivid Grove , Haunted Fengraf and Unstable Frontier for the lands above.

Do you want to see chaos happen? Hive Mind , Knowledge Pool , Thousand-Year Storm , Eye of the Storm , Shared Fate , Gate to the AEther , Possibility Storm , Ruhan of the Fomori , Perplexing Chimera , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence , Mind's Dilation , Sunbird's Invocation .

Do you want to make people interact more with you? Fact or Fiction , Steam Augury , Avatar of Slaughter , Goblin Spymaster , the Tempt with Vengeance cycle.

Do you want to give more resources to them? Eladamri's Vineyard , Dictate of Karametra , Zhur-Taa Ancient , Heartbeat of Spring , Heartwood Storyteller , Intellectual Offering , Keeper of Progenitus , Well of Ideas , Rites of Flourishing , Ghirapur Orrery . Zendikar Resurgent and Mirari's Wake .

So, I'd start by cutting three lands again, adding more ramp sources, and adding card draw.

Card draw options: Mentor of the Meek , Rhystic Study , Book of Rass , Jace Beleren , and Skullclamp are all decent options. Group-hug options that are affordable include Kami of the Crescent Moon , Well of Ideas , and Dictate of Kruphix .

Ramp: Azorius Signet , Orzhov Signet , Dimir Signet , and Sol Ring are a good start. Smothering Tithe is great.

Cards to cut: Era of Innovation , Court Homunculus , Aethersphere Harvester , Esper Stormblade , Porcelain Legionnaire , Windwright Mage , and probably a bunch of other of your low-curve creatures. They just don't do enough to warrant a slot in EDH, really. You'll want to get out as much bang for your buck for each creature you pack into the deck.

You need some kind of focus for this deck, too. What do you want to do? How do you want to win?

Thanks Skillville! It definitely is a mix of tokens and aura/equipments. Well of Ideas was in there as more of a diplomatic card, but with this deck I actually don't wanna be drawing that much so I was already thinking of taking it out. I think there are lot of obvious ways to make the deck stronger but like I mentioned on your deck, I'm trying to be fair - the tokens are for some board presence until I inevitably start building up Narset until she's more or less unstoppable, but for my casual setting I don't mind taking my time getting there. I'm also trying to keep a handful of jeskai themed cards, things like Quiet Contemplation which I still have to pay for and aren't super oppressive.

Replace Well of Ideas with Mind Unbound IMO its the best enchantment draw no one uses plus I don't like giving my opponents any hugs :) This deck seems like it is a mix of voltron with tokens. My play style picks 1 theme and focuses on that so I would suggest making it token based only or voltron auras. If you are going to use walkers use one's that matter like Ugin, Karn, Ajani Unyielding or Steadfast would be good. Teferi would be cool and Tezzeret can fetch for Strionic Resonator. Also, I really dislike Oath of Jace because if you have no walkers out its really a dead card and you only rock 6 currently. But in short, pick a specific theme and focus on having every card help to make that idea come to fruition.

First of all, thanks for leaving a comment and giving me some help! Since this is my first deck, your comment is also the first one I ever got. Well, I considered your views on Font of Mythos and similar cards and I finally got convinced, so I removed them from the deck. I still kept Forced Fruition on the maybeboard because I believe I can give it good use in some situations. I'm still not sure about it and I canĀ“t test it since I don't own this deck yet. I also kept Well of Ideas on the deck. Library of Leng was moved from the maybeboard to the deck. I liked how Curiosity and Helm of the Ghastlord synergise with Nekusar, the Mindrazer so I included them. I also liked the "near-infinite" card draw and damage of Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind. The combo can go even further with the help of Library of Leng and some wheel effect. I know this combos are difficult in commander but I'm kind of a Johnny, and if it works once, it'll be worth it. I previously considered both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots but at some point I forgot about them and didn't include them. I put the first into the deck and the second on the maybeboard. This will remain this way untill I know if it's worth to include both of them or which one is better. Next, I removed some creatures form the deck and added No Mercy and Smoke. At first didn't want to rely on creatures dealing combat damage to activate their effects, but I also needed them in order to have something to block other creatures with. Now I have other ways to prevent other players from attacking me. I also wanted the deck to be mostly oriented towards enchantments and sorceries. Finally, I included Sigil of Sleep which synergises with Nekusar and also helps me with others' creatures.
