Elite Arcanist / Isochron Scepter can be a way to get cantrips/bolts on a stick to give more frequent cast-triggers. Kaza, Roil Chaser can help fit in some larger-costed instant/sorcery finishers if you need them (like Teleportal if you're running into players that can block flyers) or maybe something spicy like Rite of Replication ; but would clash with your smaller spells and cantrip vibe.

Thoughts on these? Trophy Mage (finds Crucible), Stone-Seeder Hierophant (functions like Lotus Cobra, really good with Thawing Glaciers ), Animist's Awakening , Kamahl's Druidic Vow , Pentad Prism (in opening hand, gets Taty out T3), Elite Arcanist (can hold counterspells or win with Nexus), Isochron Scepter , Kaho, Minamo Historian (gives you options during opps' turns to counter something or use a tutor. Can go infinite with Nexus if you include Riptide Laboratory ), Realms Uncharted (instant, helps set up Sanctuary combo), Intuition (pretty versatile, could go for lands or EWit + Noxious + Temporal Mastery. and it's instant :O!) Littjara Mirrorlake (decent in your build as-is, can go infinite with EWit + Crucible if you include Time Warp ), Sakura-Tribe Scout (I'd slot this in over Oracle of Mul Daya since the effect is similar but Scout can get Taty out faster while Oracle can't), Ghostly Flicker (has neat utlity here. could be used defensively, to draw a couple cards, or as an infinite combo piece: EWit + Sanctuary + Time Warp)

Uba Mask is the big brain card for this deck. Not only does it allow you to milk triggers from Vega, but it also acts as mill protection.

Urza, Lord High Artificer can act as a mana sink to play from exile.

Oracle's Vault can be a handy cast from exile tool too.

Isochron Scepter/Elite Arcanist can act as a huge engine for this deck. Obviously you can run the combo with Dramatic Reversal, but you can also get value from imprinting other nonbos too.

If you want you can also check out my own list, which is in a more artifact direction, here Vega Finds the Center of the Tootsie-Pop.

another option though slightly more mana intensive is Elite Arcanist
