I think The Imortal Sun might be decent in Sealed, and for Control in Standard, but there are so many copies of Abrade floating around in the meta that it will be difficult to keep on the board.

Update

Removed Spellskite and Shattering Spree for Abrade

Due to rulings on Wildfire Eternal if you cheat in spells with him you can not pay a cards extra costs if they have them. So I chose to use a more viable option.

As well I don't think Spellskite has much function in this play style since your goal is to move as fast as possible you, shouldn't let your opponent create any sort of board state.

So Growing Rites of Itlimoc is redundant here, it's a legendary for one so there's no need to have 4 of them, however I would cut them entirely, you mainly want them to pump out mana for your big creatures but you don't have enough little guys to reliably flip it, generally by the time it flips here you'll already have enough Mana that you won't really need it.

You have no removal in this deck despite running red which is a wasted opportunity.

You're relying on big creatures to flex on the battlefield but no real way to get them out early enough for it to matter.

I also feel like you're being a slave to your theme.

Here's some suggestions

Cut:

1x Carnage Tyrant

1x Otepec Huntmaster

4x Ranging Raptors

2x Raptor Hatchling

2x regisaur alpha

1x Ripjaw raptor

2x Thundering Spineback

4x Growing Rites of Itlimoc

4x Commune with Dinosaurs

4x New Horizons

1x Forest

Add:

3x Servant of the Conduit

4x Abrade

4x Attune with Aether

3x Cathartic Reunion

3x Fiery Cannonade

2x Fling

3x Savage Stomp

4x Sheltered Thicket

I love this color combination and the idea of playing Delver in Modern.

Have you considered Celestial Colonnade? Sometimes they finish grindy games.

I wonder how much counter magic you need with so many removal spells. Would you consider lowering your count of counter spells to include, say, 2 Supreme Verdict and 2 Anger of the Gods? Maybe the 2 leftover slots could be for Cryptic Command.

Since Monastery Swiftspear competes with Delver of Secrets at the 1-drop slot, would you consider running a 2 Goblin Dark-Dwellers and 2 Mantis Rider, instead?

Finally, depending on your meta, would you consider going down to 2 Blessed Alliance, 1 Celestial Purge, and 1 Dispel in the sideboard to include 1 Grafdigger's Cage, 1 Mindbreak Trap, and 2 Stony Silence? That might offer you passive effects that better fight Counters Combo, Dredge, and/or Affinity. Several Leyline of Sanctity are always worth considering, as well. The Abrade might be better as a Wear since you have a lot of main deck burn.

Awesome! I noticed some changes, so I'm gonna playtest some more after I get home from college. The only thing I'd change just glancing at the deck is replacing the Abrades with Lightning Strikes. That extra burn could be paramount in finishing off an opponent.

If I like how it plays I'm definitely building this to run over my friends with xD

It's early days.

I'm not piloting it, so all the info I have is second hand.

It absolutely trounced Ixalan Ramunap Red tonight 2-0, but the Cats player has added fliers to his deck, which proved challenging. He also uses a lot of Ixalan's Binding and Cast Out, so we're trying Crushing Canopy in the Side, against him.

The meta has started to slow down, and I have some Vraska, Relic Seeker lying around, so I am reluctantly putting some in.

She will take the place of Verdurous Gearhulk, at the top of the curve. That is just being hit with Abrade, anyway.

We'll see how that goes.

The only way to beat mono-red is to either run a faster mono-red deck or play a hard control deck. Spell Swindle will never be fast enough against red. Instead, look at Essence Scatter. I know your deck isn't very control-oriented right now, but that would be my suggestion. Also, I would run Search for Azcanta  Flip instead of Strategic Planning. Watch out for Abrade, you'll lose your wincons that way.
