Wow, a lot of comments to respond to! In order...
gockley: Thanks for the comment! You say yours is more wheel-heavy: any good ones I'm missing, other than Windfall? I love the concept of Mindwrack Liege and Library of Leng here, those definitely need to find a slot, thanks! I do think Arcanis the Omnipotent is too expensive, and I don't want to give cards to my opponent with Fevered Visions, however. Thanks again! (And if you like the deck, you're always welcome to +1 the deck haha...)
Hamster2558: I'm afraid it's probably not worth it; it's almost always 5 damage to the player with the highest life total rather than giving me cards.
Fungreatmario: Nah, the deck's combos are slow - I can't consume all of T7 to set back my opponents unfortunately.
ArmorEuro: I've considered it, but it's 12 mana :( kinda win-more here.
Workman4137: Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is in here, but I'm not sure why Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius would fit (I think he's very weak actually). My plan for dealing with running out of cards is discarding Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to reshuffle my library - more efficient than Elixir of Immortality since I can also use him as a wincon. I haven't faced much mass discard (my meta tends to be very fast and low-CMC) but I should generate enough fliers to block Nicol Bolas, at least. For now I do have Purphoros, the most powerful token ETB effect, and I'll see if I need more... And I'm playing a silly combo deck where as many cards as possible try to draw into more cards (like a storm deck), so Counterspell effects aren't a priority at the moment. I would love Mana Drain if I could afford one (since it also works as acceleration), but for now it's out of my reach... Thanks for your comment! :)
veggiesblowup: I'm afraid I do think he's too slow. The average CMC is already really high here, and I need to try and lower it further.
NV_1980: I could see that! Interesting idea haha.
RazortoothMtg: I've found that Kraum tends to give me an additional card each turn. Still, he may get cut - I'm indecisive.
cujo253: I could see him, I suppose...I'll have to look into it more :)
Thank you all for your comments! And if you liked the deck, +1s are great - trying to make it from #2 to #1 ;)

Windfall for more wheel effects if you need it.

I've always loved/hated this commander, made for good games or painful ones but either way. A couple of cards that I can think of is Incendiary Command, Commit / Memory, Jace's Archivist, Memory Jar, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Winds of Change, and Windfall to give you a few that are relatively cheap.

Alright XtremeManaFlood, now the list shows how I play the deck at the moment. Fabricate might arrive just in time before my next commander session on wednesday because I've ordered it yesterday. It would replace trinket mage then, unless I cut something else to play both.
I think about cutting Revoke Existence and Mind Stone for Mystic Remora and Windfall or something else on the maybe list or to play fabricate AND trinket mage. By now it's really just fine tuning the deck and some exchanges won't even show in most games. It's mostly stuff like Academy Rector or Tezzeret the Seeker , which show me when something is missing in the deck because when I have the option to put something on the board for free and I can't find a solution for the current situation or set up a kill it means I need to change something.

I think you could remove some of the creatures and replace them with noncreature cards that have the same or a similar effect and don't cost much money either. For example Torpor Orb instead of Hushwing Gryff, Words of Wind instead of Vedalken Mastermind. You can then use Humility and Cursed Totem to shut down other players' creatures without hindering your own play too much.
The great aspect of Smokestack is that it is not limited to lands and that the counters can become more each turn. It's one turn slower than mana vortex but it's less risky. I played both but have recently replaced the vortex when I stuffed more card draw and counterspells in the deck. I still have Sundial of the Infinite in the deck to end my turn after putting a counter on smokestack...it works with mana vortex too but that one only removes all opponents' lands and leaves other permanents intact.
As for the mass LD, I think the biggest problem with catastrophe is the mana cost. I'd rather play Sunder if you don't have ravages of war because that's an instant! If you play that EOT and in your turn get to play Windfall you got rid of all lands and draw a huge lot of cards as well. I don't use Sunder anymore but rather rely on the constant effect of Mana Breach and Overburden. In your case it could be the land removal you need. Bouncing works a bit against the tapping strategy though...
You see, one change often requires other changes because cards are likely part of a package that has a certain purpose in the deck. The more you remove of such a package the less it makes sense to keep the rest in the deck, especially cards that are not really strong on their own. If you want to keep the tapping strategy I would say you should focus on that and add destruction/sacrifice and not bouncing. My list is about bounce/destruction and prevention of land drops. Unless you use Land Equilibrium (or Ward of Bones as the cheaper option) and have a reliable way to find it in your deck, you shouldn't look too much at the bouncing stuff because they don't go along well with tapping. That's the problem with trying to combine elements of different builds.
