Cards like Spellpyre Phoenix, Warden of the Eye, Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Mnemonic Wall, and Salvager of Secrets can go infinite if you have Astral Drift or Astral Slide in play alongside your Fluctuator. With a Glint-Horn Buccaneer, Drannith Stinger, or Impact Tremors in play, this lets you infinitely ping the whole table to lethal. The fact that all of those cards are already good makes them relatively easy inclusions. Maybe include Tribute Mage and Idyllic Tutor to let you fetch some of the pieces.

cool deck!!!
check out Impulse over Anticipate.
maybe Reverberate or Twincast over Doublecast. Repeated Reverberation is another option.
maybe Pull from Tomorrow over Stroke of Genius.
maybe Ghost Quarter over Field of Ruin,
maybe Shivan Reef over Highland Lake,
maybe Brainstorm over Radical Idea,
maybe Fact or Fiction over Chemister's Insight,
maybe Capsize over Into the Roil.
and some other options just to consider: Underworld Breach is great recursion. The Immortal Sun and Well of Ideas are kind of high mana options to give you one-sided more card draw.
and i've always really liked Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall, Izzet Chronarch, for those Relearn-type effects. but probably dont need to run all 3 as that is overkill.
anyway just some thoughts, hope it helps!!!
keep having fun! Cheers!

No prob! I've never actually seen Distant Memories before, I might have to pick up a couple! Seems like it would be really fun and political. And that makes sense about being hesitant to cut the cards that trigger your commander. I'd think about cutting Galvanoth, I always try to play him but 5 mana for a creature that the odds are wont get a good trigger your next upkeep isnt worth it imo. ALso Izzet Chronarch, or Archaeomancer if you want to keep the izzet colours. Chemister's Trick, Charisma, Grip of Amnesia (for a better counterspell such as Counterflux), Cerebral Vortex, Nivix Guildmage, Arcane Melee, Thoughtflare. Also not sure how you take advantage of Aetherflux Reservoir? Maybe a cut.

Some cards that you might want to consider swapping your izzet creatures for are: Double Negative, Essence Backlash, Expansion / Explosion, Ionize, Magefire Wings, Suffocating Blast. Have fun brewing! I've definitely been doing alot of it over the last couple weeks haha

@Spinal_Remains:

Rhystic Study is just an absurdly good card that should be in every single good blue deck. I hate it.

The Drake combo is Peregrine Drake paired with:

Sure! Ghostly Flicker + Peregrine Drake + Archaeomancer or Izzet Chronarch is infinate mana and infinite casts of Ghostly Flicker .

1) have Peregrine Drake and Archaeomancer or Izzet Chronarch on the battlefield.

2) cast Ghostly Flicker and target those creatures

3) get your etbs. Peregrine Drake will untap 5 lands and Archaeomancer will enter and allow you to get an instant or sorcery from your graveyard; you take Ghostly Flicker

4) each time you repeat this process you should be netting 2 mana.

I really like your list but I have two questions.

I might be missing something but what exactly are you doing after you reanimate the Chronarch? By that point you have Izzet Chronarch in play, Chronarch's and Inalla's triggers on the stack, Entomb , Reanimate , Burnt Offering in your graveyard and only left on your mana pool.

I can't see how you go from there to looping Burnt Offering and Shallow Grave without needing extra mana and/or extra life while looping Izzet Chronarch instead of Scholar of the Ages .

Also, if your loop works with Izzet Chronarch why not base your chain around Archaeomancer instead?
