I agree with these. I like Delver, but 5 is a lot to pay for it as well as life loss. Thassa has been OK, but I've got plenty of better scry here, and if anything I need more draw options than anything else. And yes, the Dynamo could go. I've been tossing up cheaper rocks like Fellwar Stone and Darksteel Ingot. In terms of further cuts, I'd probably add Forbidden Alchemy. I'm definitely in favour of adding things like Rhystic Study, but I don't have a copy. I've tossed up things like Distant Melody, Mentor of the Meek, Midnight Reaper, just not sure what's going to give me the best return.
Yeah I'd definitely drop Dynamo for cheaper ramp. Wife's list is running Dimir Signet and Orzhov Signet (and then Expedition Map, Sol Ring, and Chromatic Lantern same as you) and that's been working. If we added one more it'd be erring on the cheaper side (the better to power out Varina faster), with Coldsteel Heart or Talisman of Dominance leading the pack.
For draw, in the absence of Arena or Study I'd try Distant Melody or Midnight Reaper in Alchemy's spot. You do have Mind's Eye and Mystic Remora for repeat draw, so I think better one-shot draw or "draw on a stick" is a good place to experiment.
