Second, are you focusing on a Voltron-style Commander damage win with Kozilek? I can tell you it doesn't happen very often since he's actually quite vulnerable to removal. I also started with a build that had a lot of unblockable effects, but it turns out that Kozilek isn't the best attacker compared to your other Eldrazi. I'd focus more on using Kozilek for card advantage and digging for your other Eldrazi to win the game.
Finally, a few upgrades to consider: Manifold Key is strictly better than Voltaic Key. Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion are both super helpful and more impactful than Reality Smasher and Sandstone Oracle. Doubling Cube is pretty fun ramp and probably better than Gilded Lotus. Commander's Plate is going to be much better than Whispersilk Cloak, though it's decently expensive rn.
Here's my list that I've been running for a few years, if you want more ideas: Kozi Kozi Commander (Colorless Eldrazi EDH)
Have fun, it's a super fun deck to play with!

Man do I love my eldrazi! The players in my group not so much.
So we know that the Eldrazi are big, beefy and love to stomp, they need tons of ramp especially going pure colourless, but they also need a bit of help to reduce the cost to get them out. Jhoira's Familiar is cheap and drops the price down.
Metalworker is going to be a must for you imho, if you are going to be running that many artifacts, chances are you are going to have a few in your hand and this little gem will help bring out those fatties fast! I've dropped Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger turn 4 in my voltron deck with Metalworker.
Sandstone Oracle can help out with card draw
Tutors really are a bane for colourless, even more so for Eldrazi. Planar Portal, Mind's Eye and Citanul Flute can help with that. Planar Portal can help you pick up your Urza's lands, if you are going to run with Tron.
Hope this helps in any way.

Your average CMC is pretty high and you're only running 4 ramp pieces. I usually aim for 6-10 in a deck, personally. Consider Prismatic Lens, Star Compass, Marble Diamond, Wayfarer's Bauble, Guardian Idol, Coldsteel Heart, Burnished Hart, Tithe, Verge Rangers. With no budget there is always Land Tax, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault
You have a lot of really great interaction but, as you mentioned, you are low on card advantage/draw. White is obviously not great at this but you do have options. Endless Atlas, Mind's Eye, Slate of Ancestry, Staff of Nin, Sandstone Oracle, Alms Collector, Palace Jailer, Palace Sentinels, Arch of Orazca, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Bonders' Enclave, Conqueror's Galleon Flip, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Farsight Mask, Loreseeker's Stone. With no budget there is Sword of Fire and Ice
A Solemn Simulacrum could smooth things out too.
Mangara, the Diplomat will be a staple soon enough so maybe gun for one of those when they come out.

Hey, I like the name, nice budget deck.
What are you using infinite mana of Peregrine + Deadeye for? It appears you have removed the mana sinks and other combo pieces. Brago, King Eternal's no mana cost repeatable flicking can do a lot more than Deadeye and Brago is a flying creature. Bident of Thassa for half the price would do a lot more than Deadeye with your flying creatures.
It seems that Deadeye is most expensive price card in your deck and it's not doing much. You could cut Deadeye to clear some price to improve the manabase with some better budget lands such as Command Tower, Prairie Stream, Port Town and Ash Barrens. Consider Bident of Thassa and Mask of Memory? These have excellent budget repeatable draw effects with attacking flying creatures. These cards could replace Failure and Deadeye Navigator.
Could cut Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond and add Azorius Signet/Mind Stone. These are better two drop mana rocks especially with Brago because they ETB untapped. Could cut Mask of Avacyn/Neurok Stealthsuit and add Swiftfoot Boots. The haste and hexproof of Boots especially haste is overall better than Mask/Stealthsuit.
Good luck with your deck.

You're welcome. I have had good success with Sandstone Oracle and seen good lists for Lesser Masticore, Burnished Hart, and Sorcerer's Broom. I haven't tried the latter three but the Oracle is surprisingly strong, you just ramp hardcore to get the Oracle out and refill your hand and try to kill it in combat to do it again.

harbingerofduh I had Sword of W&P in here once. Card draw > Lifegain.
Driemer84 Memory Jar seems like a good addition. Might pick one up. Mizzium Mortars doesn't seem necessary, I think I'd rather run Hour of Devastation. I guess I live in a meta where Sandstone Oracle is an easy draw 6 most games. Mana Geyser is a great card, and is part of the Wheel/Underworld Breach combo, so I've been looking to add one. Might take out a copy spell. Chandra's Ignition is a so-so card, and it's been debated before. I might replace it sometime, it's not a hill I'd die on, but usually it's pretty good, so it stays.
