As far as counterspells go, there are a bunch of better ones than the ones you are playing. Counterspell is better than Cancel I would reccomend not playing any 'soft' counterspells above 2 mana, so somthing like Dissolve or Dream Fracture would be better.
Reach Through Mists is also underwhelming, maybe try Deep Analysis or Serum Visions. Skyblinder Staff or Whispersilk Cloak seem a bit better than Invisibility, but if you like it Cloak of Mists does a slightly better job.

Hey, interesting start on a budget version of Kess.
Some cards to consider adding:
- Baleful Strix
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury
- Arcane Signet: at TCGPlayer can get it for less than $3.
- Izzet Signet
- Dimir Signet: can get it for less than $1.
- Rakdos Signet
- Crumbling Necropolis: Grixis Tri land.
- Shivan Reef: can get it for less than $1.
- Smoldering Marsh
- Grixis Panorama
- Opal Palace
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Izzet Boilerworks
- Rakdos Carnarium
Cards to consider cutting for these:
- Temple of the False God: it will not tap for mana until your fifth turn which is really bad.
- Vivid Marsh: when it runs out of two counters it can only tap for black.
- Dimir Guildgate
- Swiftwater Cliffs
- 4x Mountain
- Guard Gomazoa or Fog Bank
- Sage's Row Denizen
- Izzet Chronarch
- Mnemonic Wall
- Salvager of Secrets
- Possessed Skaab
Baleful Strix is a two drop who draws a card when it ETB, that way you can blink it with Deadeye to draw many cards. When you assemble Deadeye + Drake for infinite mana then being able to infinite blink a creature who draws can draw your win condition or draw and cast all cards in your deck. It's possible you could have a win condition already on the battlefield or in hand or graveyard with Kess, but if not then infinite blinking Strix lets you draw it.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be a win condition with Deadeye + Drake. It's not opponent mill, it's better, it's opponent exile their libraries and with infinite mana you get to cast all your opponent's cards. Arcane Signet , Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet are some two drop mana rocks so you're not only relying on lands to have enough mana to cast cards.
I don't think you need to play so many creatures who recur an instant or sorcery because isn't that what Kess is for? That's the advantage of Kess, you get to cast an instant or sorcery from your graveyard on your turns, but once you resolve that spell is exiled. An exiled spell is no longer in your graveyard to recur to your hand. Archaeomancer is the only creature you want for this effect because you also have blink spells as well as Deadeye and creature recursion/reanimation spells for Archaeomancer.
Good luck with your deck.

Could also consider Stream of Thought as a mill win con. You can run Dizzy Spell as another way to get Stream. Make infinite Mana using your combo and then replicate the Stream as many times as you need to to mill them out then pass turn.
Lastly for now, You should run Neurok Stealthsuit. It keeps your CMDR from getting roasted and can be attached at instant speed. Making for fun shenanigans when someone tries to blow your League up. Just attach in response and hopefully they don't have a followup spell. I would cut Ur-Golem's Eye and add the Stealth suit.
I would change the creature base up a bit too. There are way better crits out there that you should look into.

I recently played against Hermit Druid for the first time in an age and it is definitely an addition I need haha.
I'd actually considered cutting World Shaper altogether in favour of extra land drop effects, and I think that may end up being the case. I picked up Azusa this past week and cut Springbloom Druid for it. I think I may look for Exploration instead of World Shaper in the interest of reducing my average CMC, but I may even swap Springbloom Druid back in for the time being. Splendid Reclamation is great but I can't recur it and I'm not running Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall/etc., so I've purposely stayed away from too many Instants/Sorceries. :)
Amulet of Vigor is a card I'm actively seeking.. for my Landfall deck haha, though you're right, it would have a nice home here too!
Thanks for the comment(s) and suggestions! =)

Hey, good budget version of Talrand, nice Consecrated Sphinx.
Budget cards to consider adding:
Peregrine + Displace + Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall makes infinite blue mana from blinking Peregrine and infinite casts of Displace which equals infinite 2/2 Drakes from Talrand. Displace is an instant meaning can do this combo on an opponents turn and then attack with infinite Drakes on your turn.
- High Tide: excellent ramp when playing so many Islands and cards that can recur it to cast it again. Can get more ramp out of Tide with Peregrine, Frantic Search, Snap as these cards let you untap Islands to make more mana.
- Bident of Thassa: more repeatable draw with 2/2 Drakes.
- Mystic Speculation: buyback.
- Capsize: buyback.
- Forbid: buyback.
- Serum Visions
- Reality Shift
- Reliquary Tower
Cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God
- Spell Snuff
- Thought Collapse
- Of One Mind
- Dazzling Lights
- Stream of Thought
- String of Disappearances
- Dictate of Kruphix
- Ethereal Forager
- Hieroglyphic Illumination
- Chemister's Insight
- Portal Mage
Good luck with your deck.

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.

Sweet deck! Classic strategy here! And extra turns plus value or infinite turns in temur colors is really my favorite deck and strategy!!
Deadeye Navigator can blink your archaeomancer or Mnemonic Wall to allow you ro recur your extra turn spells indefinitely. Several jace planeswalker or sahelli rai can bounce or copy creatures for the same effect as can Capsize.
Could also consider Regrowth/ Seasons Past to recur extra turns and standard copy spells like Twincast, Reverberate , Increasing Vengeance to get additional copies, or backup in case commander is removed. Typically you might find yourself mana limited rather than option limited so ramp is key.
One fun new recursion option is Underworld Breach.
Anyway just some thoughts cheers and keep turnin and burnin!!!
