I haven't seen this commander done before, seems pretty neat! In terms of single cards, I'd definitely recommend Frantic Search , Mystic Sanctuary , Drownyard Temple , Chemister's Insight , Deep Analysis . Good general looting/blue cards to go with your commander's self discard theme! Self mill could also work, in which case Fraying Sanity on yourself could have a high upside! If you're looking for a budget wincon with your deck, Tunnel Vision seems like a fun route to go! If you pair it with something like Vessel of Endless Rest or Proteus Staff (though the staff is like $4 :/) you can either mill an opponent out, or mill yourself out. At worst, Vessel of Endless Rest is a three mana mana rock that puts a wincon back in the deck. To that end, in your current build, your commander is a (sort of semi conditional) infinite mana sink that will end with you picking up your deck and winning the game with Lab man and the like. Not sure how you feel about infinite combos, but if you're looking for a budget infinite mana combo in the deck outside of Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter , Peregrine Drake / Cloud of Faeries + Deadeye Navigator is tried and true. Or if you go the artifact subtheme, Pili-Pala + Grand Architect might also work!
As for budget additions, I've had a lot of success with Sculpting Steel and Mirrormade . Both of these cards are relatively cheap and scale well depending on what your opponents play. You can double down on the best artifact/enchantment on board.
Since the deck seems a little hungry for mana, you could also double down on the key effects with ramp like Thran Dynamo , Gilded Lotus and Voltaic Key . Could help you get WAY ahead with your draw X spells.
To that end Emry, Lurker of the Loch seems to work in tandem with what you want your commander to do! Deck thinning and casting rocks from the bin!
Hope that gives some ideas! The commander seems rather open ended aside from wanting to draw ALL the cards, there are definitely a lot of different routes to go! For sure a cool commander!

What about Vessel of Endless Rest, it's both ramp and gets something to the bottom of your library to recur. No idea what to cut though.

Darkshadow327: Thank you for your suggestions! I've been considering ramp spells over mana rocks for a while, but they just don't fit with any theme. I realized after playtesting with the new rocks and less tutors that I wasn't always able to execute my gameplan so I've removed all but two rocks and put in better tutors than before, cutting down on mana costs severely.
bushido_man96: So after testing, the deck couldn't always pull of my gameplan in games, which sort of defeats the point of the deck. So I decided to revert, but I kept Guardian Idol and Vessel of Endless Rest because tey represent the King Caesar statue used to summon him in the movie. The other rocks were removed for cheaper, sleeker tutors, which combats the decks slowness, and therefore it's need for ramp.

Vessel of Endless Rest to combo w/ Tunnel Vision?

Ender666666, you don't think the Cluestone, Locket, Sol Ring, Staff of Nin , and Vessel of Endless Rest is enough? Plus I have Bontu's Monument , Heartless Summoning and Conduit of Ruin to reduce costs. My thought process behind the land count is as follows: with so many high cmc cards and the filtering of lands via Bloodstained Mire , Rocky Tar Pit and the panoramas, I want to make sure I'm hitting my land drops every turn.
