Question though - at what point does your creature base turn you into a midrange deck? The creature base in your list seems to be pushing it that way slightly, and I'm not sure if the build you posted is control enough to be considered full control or midrange enough to take full advantage of it's creature base. Just some thoughts.
I think you do kind of need some kind of dedicated draw spell to grind out wins, unless you expect to slam Tasigur/Keranos and win from there. Maybe a one of Blue Sun's Zenith just to pull ahead?
Blood Moon out of the sideboard can work but only so long as you build your manabase around it. Game 1 you'd probably want to fetch out a lot of shocks, because fetching mostly basics game 1 would send a red flag to your opponent that you're on the blood moon plan and fetch accordingly afterwards.

Excellent primer! The deck looks cool and I'm excited to see where it goes.
I suggested BSZ just because it's more flexible and a mana sink at the same time. Got 7-8 mana open at the end of your turn? Pop BSZ and reload. Ingenuity will always hit for 3 cards, while BSZ's effect is slightly more flexible.
I've never been a fan of Think Twice because I feel like the slots you spend on it are better used elsewhere. I'd rather run 1-2 Sphinx's Rev type "big" draw spells than spend a ton of slots on cantrips and have those slots open for more removal/utility spells, but I may be in the minority on that.
