Maybe you could take advantage of the Changeling mechanic a bit. Stuff like Birthing Boughs and Maskwood Nexus (so you can make an ETB at Instant Speed). Bloodline Pretender gives you a slow build if cast early, and only costs if Unesh is already on the field.
Sphinx Ambassador is a card that can make people ragequit on the spot, especially with all the counterspell backup you have. Stormtide Leviathan is terrible in most decks, but amazing in this one.
Also, with all the ETB abilities you have here, I really recommend Ghostly Flicker, Displace, and Illusionist's Stratagem because they give your sphinxes some evasion while also doubling up on their ETBs.
A bit more reduction could really do you well. Maybe Warden of Evos Isle and/or Thryx, the Sudden Storm?

As well as my previous suggestion of Docent of Perfection Flip, which is just a good addition to give alternatives to milling. May I recommend replacing Sinister Sabotage, Wizard's Retort, and/or Select for Inspection with a combination of Displace, Illusionist's Stratagem, and/or Planar Incision to help get better odds for the combo going off.

Peregrine Drake along with an Archaeomancer type effect goes infinite with Ghostly Flicker if you're into that. Peregrine Drake can also generate a ton of mana over time with Soulherder / Flickerwisp / Oji. Also, Illusionist's Stratagem may be worth considering in place of Ghostly Flicker - If you're hitting your infinite combo with Ghostly Flicker, it can feel bad to not actually win with it. I run both instants in my Esper blink deck, so I can draw into the Ghostly Flicker and then cease casting Stratagem and thus avoid self-mill.
Aminatou, the Fateshifter goes infinite with Felidar Guardian, and also is itself a cheap flicker-er.

Nice brew! I find Lavinia of the Tenth does a ton of work in my Esper blink deck - maybe test it out in place of Exclusion Mage, or Barrin?
Also, what do you think of Cavalier of Dawn to replace Meteor Golem? It works well enough for me in Esper, so I would think would be easy enough to cast in dual color. IME, giving someone a 3/3 body is 100% worth saving the 2 mana.
And finally - Ghostly Flicker and/or Illusionist's Stratagem could be solid includes if you want to change up how your "value" works: Since you have lots of creatures that return instants/sorceries, it goes from with Momentary Blink to , but repeatable as long as you have Archaeomancer or friends out. These also fill a different role than Semester's End since they return the targets to the field immediately, and not at the next end step. (Can also go infinite mana/draw with Peregrine Drake as the second target).
Lastly... (I promise, lol) how well do you find Mind Flayer works in blink, out of curiosity? I run Agent of Treachery and I find if it isn't immediately removed after casting, I pretty much win.

For your combos containing Ghostly Flicker, you can also use Displace and Illusionist's Stratagem.

I'm an esper enthusiast, and no stranger to the ETB/Flicker game play. Consider the following:
Instant flickers: Ghostly Flicker, Teferi's Time Twist, Illusionist's Stratagem
ETB value engines: Conjurer's Closet, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling
Please feel free to critique my decks. Good luck
