Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a nice inclusion. For me Blistercoil Weird and Delver of Secrets Flip feels underwhelming in edh you can swap them for some more draw or since you like cipher even Triton Shorestalker and Mist-Cloaked Herald.
Since you asked for card draw suggestions the main staples are X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith,Pull from Tomorrow, 4 CMC type Fact or Fiction / Steam Augury or Behold the Multiverse stuff and cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder etc. There are also wheels like Windfall. Have you checked Scryfall? Their search engine is rather easy to use.
I still haven't build my Niv deck but I plan to put in the transmute package to find me the three combo pieces
Hope this helps. Cheers!

Huge fan of Lands.dec especially in EDH.
I like your straightforward concept but this glass cannon needs a playset or 2 of support cards to streamline your strategy. Stuff like Gamble, Mystical Tutor, Personal Tutor, Muddle the Mixture, Drift of Phantasms, Ring of Three Wishes
Otawara, Soaring City much needed removal that doesn't mess up your strategy.
Dust Bowl is incredible with basic lands.
If you were to use every suggestion I just made your land percentage would be 87% which still wipes out a table of 4.

So, after playing this deck for over a year, I still love it. But I faced a couple of major problems:
not enough draw without risk of getting an archenemy badge for casting two approaches to trigger Jori En, Ruin Diver
when I play with somebody who knows my deck they try to kill me before I can get one of my combo pieces
The only thought I have to solve those - put a Propaganda for protection and both Drift of Phantasms and Mystical Tutor for consistency. Also, 36 Approaches are overkill for me, so I think of cutting up to 30-32 and adding something like Izzet Charm or Prismari Command, or some drawing cantrips. And maybe Archmage Ascension and Rhystic Study as both of them are easily tutored by Drift of Phantasms.
Would appreciate some comments both with ideas and critics.

Update: I have removed most of the infinite combos from the deck due to new house rules in my playgroup. While this deck was never scary fast it is very very reliable, with a creature tutor on the commander. To keep things centered on combat, I have removed Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale as well as Peregrine Drake.

Cloudsleeper - Vivien is a top-deck look, gets nonbos out of the way for Pako & on His cast grabs Clever Impersonator + Mina and Denn, Wildborn + Rashmi, Eternities Crafter + Silent Arbiter + Stunt Double :o + the Sideboard when up against hefty creature decks for Sword combos (not to mention the protection/removal prospect of the lower cmc creatures); all in all, better/quicker pros for the deck than building up Freyalise - Great Henge went in over Thran Dynamo, cause I had one not in use ;) & its almost always 4 or less cmc & gets draw off subsequent General casts. Look at Drift of Phantasms's cmc stack & tell me that don't just beat all! xD

Should definitely add Unwinding Clock possibly over Teleportation Circle, also Skullclamp is amazing card draw since Shorikai makes 1/1's. I am not a fan of Planar Collapse since its telegraphed there are so many other board-wipe options. Drift of Phantasms and Idyllic Tutor are both inexpensive ways to find Intruder Alarm if you want to up the power level. Adding in Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal is another powerful combo for this deck that is safer than Intruder Alarm (harder to interact with, if you want to up the power level you can run both Alarm and Scepter). Why is Dolmen Gate in here there are about 1-2 on attack/on hit triggers, seems like a waste of a card slot. I like Katsumasa, the Animator since it can animate a sol ring or signet to start the Intruder Alarm combo. Awesome deck, I have been loving Shorikai.

Drift of Phantasms transmute for many important 3 cmc cards.
Master Transmuter cheat in artifacts.
All That Glitters Perhaps? Or some other way to get bonuses from all the artifacts you run.
Forsaken Monument 1 your pilots are colorless. Also helps ramp if you add in more tech lands.
