Sorin_Markov_1947: What format are you building for? If it's for a 60 card deck, it gets a lot easier because you can include 4 copies of of Jungle Shrine , Kazandu Refuge , Graypelt Refuge and some Terramorphic Expanse s/ Evolving Wilds with some basics.
If you're talking commander however it gets trickier as you can only have one copy of each and have to dig deeper in the list.

Given the inclusion of Urza, Lord High Artificer as well as a win condition based around both Aetherflux Reservoir and Elsha's prowess triggers and the fact that you're running Dramatic Reversal , what's the reason for not including Isochron Scepter ? It seems rather strong here and it provides an alternate win condition which doesn't heavily lean on Sensei's Divining Top .

So I did a test of another user's altered art sol ring which shows:
I'm not sure if you need to be an upgraded user to upload your own alters (rather than just use existing ones) however tagging yeaGO.

I don't think you'd want to waste deck slots with proliferation type effects - I would have thought an 8/8 should either be the biggest thing on the board, or you're in the possition where you're already boned so it doesn't matter.
Personally I would build the deck as white/green, using a bunch of dorks and then have stuff like Kitchen Finks , with the list topping out at a few gearhulks. If you leverage dorks, then you can either dump a bunch of counters across all of them (if you're concerned about single target removal) or you can drop an 8/8 with trample quickly and then turn sideways with it.
Going creature heavy means you can lean on cards like Lead the Stampede for digging power. It also means that if you do want to dump more counters on your stuff, then you have access to Gavony Township which is going to do more work by itself than a proliferate effect.
Stick a couple of Path to Exile s in the list and you've got something that kind of works.

There's also Memory Sluice which, while it hits one less card by itself, is both easier to cast and also lets you dig deeper if you want to late game turn your Bloodghast s into extra digging power (if you're having trouble getting them to connect). Just a thought.

Given your curve and your amount of cheap ramp, I think that you're safe to lower your land count to 35-36. While he's not a knight, Combat Celebrant seems good here - additional combat phases and another win condition with Helm of the Host .
I would also recommend some additional removal in the form of Wear / Tear , especially to help cut through tax effects.

The Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista combo doesn't work with just those two cards. You need to add a sac outlet as well, since Mike gives a static +1/+1. The reason he works with Triskelion is that trisk can ping itself for 2 points of damage, but with ballista you only have 1 counter to play with total.
If the only reason you're running artifact lands is because of Trinket Mage then I would cut them - they are a liability more than they are value. I would also replace Prime Speaker Vannifar with Birthing Pod personally. I'ts not like you're running a Vannifar chain, so she is just Pod with summoning sickness.
I run a very similar version of this list (with quite a few of the same packages as you do - albeit a bit more streamlined). I would recommend having a look, it might give you some ideas:

Bramblesnap is another good way to get your commander up to 10 infect damage in one hit.

While you have a backup for Hellkite, if you lose access to Worldgorger Dragon then the deck doesn't have its engine.

RNR_Gaming: the parser doesn't like capital letters on the object type identifier. So it has to be 'deck', not 'Deck':

With cards like Thousand-Year Storm , Firebrand Archer , Electrostatic Field , etc. the quantity of spells you're casting (not just copying) is important. I would recommend looking at trying to reduce some of the bigger "bomb" spells for more churn through (and much cheaper to cast) advantage. Brainstorm , Gitaxian Probe , Impulse , stuff like that which let you not only fill up your graveyard but also get your storm count up are going to provide more value overall compared with even things like Time Stretch . The other thing is that again, with storm damage (which seems to be the primary win condition of the deck), copying spells (especially though abilities) is not as powerful as just casting more spells.

You can put card: in front of the card name to get around username/deckname clashes. It's all there in the Formatting Tips. The card itself hasn't actually been uploaded to T/O yet anyway (as of the time of this comment).
As for your obeservation, it's almost as if Doubling Season has a tendancy to break planeswalkers.

It's good to link cards that you're discussing:
As for how it works - I'm guessing you name white with Painter's Servant . This means that every time you cast a burn spell (making the assumption that 99.99% of burn spells are red/X) then that spell has lifelink and triggers the white spell gain life clause of FS&SS. This means that every burn spell deals an additional 3 damage. So something like Grapeshot gest really dumb, as each copy will effectively deal 4 damage.

Too many words, a plus ability that has removal, an unconditional (mana cost) tutor and an "I win the game" ultimate ability, all for the cost of 6 mana. Hmmmm, it seems about as balanced as a fat kid on a see-saw.
As a general rule, you're trying to make each ability do too much (basically the thing that everybody on mtgcardsmith does) as well as trying to balance out busted effects by just making them cost more. Not to mention the whole colour pie thing.
Some feedback would be to pick ONE thing for each ability to do (maybe tie each ability to a colour) and just nail that. But don't make a card where they have to print the rest of the words on the back of the card because they ran out of space on the front.

Soulfire Grand Master would have made an amazing Jeskai commander. All dem extra turn spells.

If you're building a list designed to take advantage of as much land based ramp as possible, then I would probably drop the Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus lotus for more land based ramp. Not only does that focus on your land based theme, but it provides sorceries for you delve away.
