I love the deck and will be trying something similar out, when aether revolt comes out. I have a few suggestions though.
I think the x3 Ongoing Investigation's is too many and a single copy would be better as you may find you dont have creatures on board to make it work.
I also think that x4 Reverse Engineer's is too many and a draw spell would be more beneficial in your deck being instant speed so you can leave up counter spells and draw depending on the opponents choice of play. I would suggest x1 Reverse Engineer as its great draw spell with the clues, but adding in x3 Glimmer of Genius which not only is instant speed but gets to see more of your deck to find a Mechanized Production.
I would drop x1 Fumigate and try to stick to protecting your combo with another counter spell.
I think the land base needs to be changed a bit to make sure you dont has as many tap lands, so going up to 4 aether hubs would be a good choice and you even get extra energy from the Glimmer of Genius to restock the energy production.
With the above changes it would leave x3 extra spaces in the main board and i would include the following cards:
Confirm Suspicions x1 - only one because its expensive but generates a 3 clues instantly and can be used to counter your own spell on your upkeep to win before they get to respond.
Confront the Unknown x1 - a surpirse flying attacker that they cant block could easily close out the game. Still generates the clue advantage aswell and lowers the CMC of the deck a little.

I'm quite happy with this current list. I will need to playtest it to get a better idea of how consistant and versatile it is.

PeeBee I like the suggestions (ignore my earlier comment, as I posted that before seeing yours!)
Ongoing Investigation is quite a key part of the deck, so many I'd go to 2 intead of 3.
I agree it needs more room for counterspells. I thought about Confirm Suspicions quite early on, but it's just quite costly, and I was trying to avoid 5cmc. Definitely worth testing though.
