I'm expecting to hear "this will slow down the game too much" along with these names are terrible, that's fine but I'm looking for other feedback as well.

ignoring the timing issue, these seem fine, but I worry things like Divine Discombobulation and Casino Dealer will be too easy to abuse. it's not hard to shuffle your library. it's just you don't see it a lot a) because it's avoided where possible, and b) there's no linear advantage to it, so you don't see collections of shuffling cards in decks. if you start rewarding it too much, suddenly those decks start coming together, and your 1-drop can become pretty massive pretty quickly.

Loyal Canary is probably my favorite, but should either cost or be a 2/1. strictly-bettering wind drake is a fine line, and one to be careful of.

 
120.6. Some effects replace card draws.
Existing cards that care about shuffling only care about your opponent's library, because shuffling your own library again and again isn't difficult and drastically increases the length of the game in very boring ways.. Shuffling isn't your problem here, it's that your cards reward you for shuffling your ~own~ library!
casino dealer seems quite strong to me, especially in a format with fetches and ponder.
That's why cards like Cosi's Trickster were perfectly fine, while this version causes problems..
