Jetboys- What kind of hands are you ending up with that you can't do anything with? Too much energy? Too many trainer cards that aren't usable immediately?
I'm no expert, so I'll just give my thoughts based on a little experience. You decide what you ultimately want to do. I'm also primarily a Standard format player.
Octillery(I'm assuming it's the draw until you have 5 in the hand ability) is great for when you've got a small hand and you're using almost everything you draw. However, I think you need more draw support. By that I mean, you need to be able to get rid of useless card in your current hand to get to what you need. Professor Sycamore is a common Staple card to help you get the cards you need. N does a decent job, but it's just not as powerful especially in the late game(unless you're behind and dropping your opponent to 1 or 2 cards can kill their steam). I don't typically run more than 2 N's, if any(personal preference). Cynthia can also do a good job if you don't want to change your opponents hand, and you have cards that you absolutely need to keep in your deck.
If you're playing online, when you look at your deck there is a button that say 'Export Decklist'. That will copy your entire deck, and when you paste it, it will look like the other decks that were posted. This allows everyone to see exactly what cards(Expansion, card number, etc) you're running, and they can make better suggestions.
Hope any of that helps you. If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.
