I also wouldn't be playing Desert in a deck with so many color requirements, it could probably be replaced with another snow land.
Most of your colorless rocks also don't seem that great with nothing to accelerate into, I'd probably cut at least Thought Vessel , Ur-Golem's Eye , and Sisay's Ring since you have so few cards that actually require 2 or more generic mana, and extra hand size is irrelevant most games. Mind Stone would be better, but I still don't know if it would be very good anyway.
You could use many more pieces to make your combo more consistent, including but not limited to: Displace , Izzet Chronarch , Mnemonic Wall , Scrivener , and Salvager of Secrets . Maybe not all of them though.
Good luck with your boring deck! :P

Reason: Graven Lore was just too good to pass up.
Reason: I simply needed to make some cuts and while I do agree Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora are super powerful cards I felt like that the deck is able to draw enough without them. Insription of Insight is a versatile spell which can do so much and Sentinel Totem cycles itself if Eligeth is out and can control our opponents 'yards.

Ancient Tomb, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand and Snow-Covered Islands would all bolster consistency and give you a tad more ramp/attrition - though all of this comes in at a few morgage payments unless your group lets you proxy.
Gilded Drake - for the cost of a used Nintendo switch you can make commander dependent decks salty and sad every time :)
Anyways, hope that helped some :)

Howdy there! You might like some of these lands (and ramp)
- Morphic Pool
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Polluted Delta (Budget Version: Bad River)
- Underground River
- Darkslick Shores
- Sunken Ruins (Cheap right now with double masters!)
- Drowned Catacomb
- Choked Estuary
- Temple of Deceit
Basic island and swamps can be cut for Snow-Covered Islands and Snow-Covered Swamps. They count as basics and produce the same colors, but if your opponent is playing a snow deck it can be helpful. There isn't too huge of a chance for that but since its exactly the same for you either way its better to have that option always available.
- City of Brass
- Prismatic Vista
- Fabled Passage
- Wasteland or Strip Mine
- Forbidden Orchard
- Exotic Orchard
- Gemstone Mine
- Reflecting Pool
- Gemstone Caverns
You gotta run Command Tower without a doubt
Your average mana cost is kind of high so I would consider some of these: Sapphire Medallion, Jet Medallion, Lotus Petal, Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Fellwar Stone, Coalition Relic, Extraplanar Lens, Gilded Lotus, Dark Ritual, etc are nice for ramp. Maybe a Caged Sun or Gauntlet of Power too.
If you have the budget, Mana Crypt is very good as well.
In the end, I would definitely consider all of these lands as they are very helpful and can help your journey go much much MUCH smoother, especially in commander! If this helps, be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH) among others! Upvote them if you like them and be sure to give me suggestions if you have any, I would appreciate it. Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day! Happy tapping!
