More Draw, More stability, More power, More aggressiveness.

I think you're over valuing the mana generators. There is effectively 5 copies of mana generators in the deck with all tutors included so you can count on finding the two that are in there. Because of that Chakram Retriever only generating 2 mana each spell is of lower value than the tutors that can find better versions as well as modally tutor draw engines or just be a Hydra to die for you. On top of that the cantripping Hydras will draw upwards of 10 cards for probably 4 mana as long as you have one on-death draw effect online so you're pretty much mathematically guaranteed to probably find a mana generator for very little investment. That's why I don't consider Chakram Retriever to be viable.
Primal Vigor was actually just the one token doubler I didn't have a copy of lying around so I didn't want to put it in xd but the downside is actually pretty negligible since you'll be playing it in the midst of popping off. I just didn't have one and you only really need 2 copies in the deck anyway since they are win-more cards.
The infinite mana lines are in there because of the sheer ease of them basically winning the game. I haven't actually written the next section yet outline the gas cards like Wurmcalling that also can establish an infinite loop as well but basically there is a lot of things you can do.

Oh also Wurmcalling creates stupid value if it doesn't get counterspelled.

I like Constant Mists in these kinds of decks. The decks that are planning to win with combat damage often just fold to that one.
I'd also look into some mana sinks. I mean there has to be a point where you have enough mana and you might want to start spending it on something to actually win the game, right? :) I run buyback spells (Wurmcalling) in my Karametra deck, which I'm guessing works somewhat similarly to this one. Soul of Zendikar, Nemata, Grove Guardian... Something like those, perhaps?
Laboratory Maniac looks a bit strange in this deck. Has it been working for you?
