Here are some ideas!
Creatures I would add: Thassa, Deep-Dwelling (She will probably be cheaper when she rotates out of Standard, but she's a natural fit for the deck).
Purphoros, God of the Forge (This card won me so many games with my Riku creatures deck)
Avenger of Zendikar (Also a win con)
Solemn Simulacrum (For repeatable ramp and the bonus draw)
Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw. Even if if you copy and her and sacrifice one she's great)
For instants and sorceries, I would cut your extra turn stuff if it is causing issues with your play group. The untap stuff like Early Harvest can be a stand-in for these, as they practically do the same thing but aren't technically extra turns. Nevertheless they can bother people.
Epic Experiment is hit or miss even in a deck with a lot more instants and sorceries. If you're going for more creatures, this should definitely be cut.
Clone Legion costs a lot and is not consistent. I love this card, but for 9 mana, I want to win the game with some degree of certainty.
Brass's Bounty can probably go. You should be able to ramp in other ways, and this isn't an artifact deck.
As for Spitting Image, it's fine, but it is going to be on the high end of your ideal mana curve. I'd put in some cheaper clone effects first.
Let me know what you think. It might be time do a revision to the deck and see how things are looking, to get a clearer picture of the direction it's going and what it still needs.

Hey KIRK77, thanks man! It is indeed a fun deck but that also puts some results. I've checked yours and is also a nice build but they are radically different. In your case you are really going deep on the self-mill plan while I play a toolbox/value engine deck.
You are really low on creature based ramp and early drops (specially 1 cmc) so I would definitely make room for:
Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Green Sun's Zenith and best buddy Dryad Arbor (for that sweet turn 1 ramp), Krosan Tusker,... That alone would probably help a lot. I would think about reducing your mana-rocks and ramp-spells with creatures that accomplish the same. Would absolutely try Millikin and probably Dreamscape Artist. Why are you running so few 4 cmc cards?
Regarding your suggestions:
I did consider Champion of Wits but in the end it did not make the deck because I was already running Fathom Mage + Prime Speaker Zegana. They're really similar to the champion but they have counter synergies. Mirror-Mad Phantasm/ Traumatize cannot be included as they are really efficient self-mill cards and would break the tutoring capabilities of Birthing Pod, Prime Speaker Vannifar, Survival of the Fittest. Nezahal, Primal Tide sounds good, I guess I'll give it a try.

looks like fun stuff mavryk. The mimeoplasm is one of my favorites, so I'm always looking at the different ones out there. Are there any sleeper cards you've got that I'm missing in my deck?
Prime Speaker Zegana is a pretty sweet card draw creature
personally I've always found a couple sac outlets helpful in here so that I can replay The Mimeoplasm as something else when I need to, or at least get some last value out of him before he gets blown up. The best ones for me have probably been Altar of Dementia and Greater Good

I do think Savage Knuckleblade is good and could be great in a deck like this. In situations where both you and your opponent have very few cards in hand, it can be a great mana sink that can take games. I do agree that Prime Speaker Zegana is bad (6 mana cards should help you go from a losing to a winning position, this is a win-more card) and think that the old Kiora, the Crashing Wave would be better than the new one. On that note, an interesting direction would be a Kiora fog deck that slams bombs in the late-game.

I want to build a midrange beatdown deck for pioneer. I played Temur monsters back in RTR/KTR standard with much success. Given the current state of pioneer, I am wondering is splashing blue for Savage Knuckleblade and Prime Speaker Zegana would be worth it.
So far I am thinking Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic to get the party started. Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner for some card advantage. Top of my curve is going to look like Glorybringer. What do I do in between? Would the blue be worth it, or should I just stay where I am and start looking at Gruul Spellbreaker and Questing Beast instead?

I really like Prime Speaker Zegana. This card is so fun to play. I used to play it on a casual Modern deck along with Chasm Skulker and other draw spells. Have you ever played this deck ? It seems fun to play. I like Simic for that. Ramp and +1/+1 counters can go wild if opponents do nothing.
