Gearhulk doesn't have many targets and doesn't help towards the main gameplan at all. Glimmer of Genius might be a better idea as it supplies energy for Minister of Inquiries and digs into the stuff you need.

Cards like Seer of the Last Tomorrow, Contingency Plan, and Strategic Planning can help you reach Manic Scribe's delirium.

Ipnu Rivulet can sacrifice itself to get a land into the graveyard (while milling the opponent). As can any scry land,like Desert of the Mindful, which is also sacrifice fodder for Ipnu Rivulet.

Winds of Rebuke is a nice soft removal that also Mills. Aether Meltdown is another soft removal card and it gives energy for Minister of Inquiries.

I think Engulf the Shore can find some space mainboard.

I don't know a thing about standard, but I know this.
You need to test against the fastest and most aggressive builds in the format.
Proxy one of each type, aggro, combo, control, then play a lot of games.

If you can include white:

I agree, this seems like a great deck, but standard right now is very fast and resiliant. I feel this is more casual than competitive for that reason.

From personal experience, Vessel is not worth it. I would drop that for a board wipe, something like engulf the shore.
Also, disallow is better than cancel, if you can afford it.

I would also cut the aether hub, because colorless mana has screwed me, so I wouldn't include it unless you're running two or more colors.

Also, I would run anticipate over winds of rebuke, because that will let you dig for more mill.

Dampen Thought might be a good card for this deck
