It has some sort of prowess

If I may offer some suggestions. I have played UR Wizard Burn in Modern and currently have a Jeskai Wizards build with Naban, Dean of Iteration , an Izzet Wizard Deck with Adeliz, the Cinder Wind , and a spell slinger deck with Niv-Mizzet, Parun in standard. Each have their own similarities, but mostly play very, very differently. When I look at this list, I feel like you aren't focused enough on one particular area to be effective. You've got some pieces from one game plan and some pieces from other game plans. Consider the following ways you can go:
The first variation is a super aggro deck built around Adeliz. You throw down little, aggressive wizards like Siren Stormtamer , Ghitu Lavarunner , and Viashino Pyromancer and get some early damage in. Then, when the time is right, you slam Adeliz, attack with everyone, throw all your cheap burn spells at your opponent's face, and deal like 30 damage in a single turn. Adeliz needs such cheap wizards to go wide quickly and cheap spells to "storm off" with her, that I don't even include Wee Dragonauts and Aven Wind Mage in my deck because I feel like they are too expensive.
The second variation is a slower, burn them over time plan using cards like Guttersnipe , Goblin Electromancer , Electrostatic Field , Niv-Mizzet, and Murmuring Mystic . This build is essentially a counter-burn deck which controls the board state and slowly kills the opponent with incremental damage using the creatures above.
The third variation is built around Naban. I know you don't have Naban on this list, but have all of his best students: Merfolk Trickster , Viashino Pyromancer , and Exclusion Mage . This is a tempo deck where you gain value off of your wizards and blink them over and over again with Siren's Ruse or, if you're Jeskai, Justiciar's Portal .
Finally, this isn't a wizards build, but people keep mentioning them so I figured I should too, and that is a deck using Crackling Drake and Enigma Drake . Aside from having Goblin Electromancer , I don't think it really has anything to do with Wizards perse, but it does play similarly. I played the double drake deck when Ravnica first came out and I did so without Arclight Phoenix because I couldn't afford it. The goal of this deck is just to slam a Drake and make sure it survives while slowly powering it up. There are more tempoy builds which are more aggressive and slower, more control builds.
I hope this helps. Having a single strategy in mind really helps refine decks and give them a ton more consistency. Figure out what style of play you like best and I would hone in on that. Or you could be like me and just build them all! Wizards is my favorite tribe.

+1 for amazing name. Maybe try +4 Shock , +4 Aven Wind Mage -2 Ghitu Journeymage -2 Goblin Electromancer (because not too many spells that benefit) -2 Naban, Dean of Iteration (because isn't utilized too much) and -2 Naru Meha, Master Wizard (because high cost and little benefit). Seems like a fun deck, have a great day!

There doesn't seem to be a combo going on... you could try doing things with Historic spells and birds

Thanks for the advice, Poaralion! I made some edits based on those suggestions, I had been considering Wee Dragonauts over Aven Wind Mage and you've convinced me. And I think you're right, Howling Golem isn't as good as just having more copies of spells that win me the game.
I struggled to find any cards I'd be willing to drop for Maximize Altitude, but I swapped 2 Shock for 2 Maximize Velocity, because they essentially pump the Enigma Drake for +2/+2 and haste them for 1 so I'm definitely into that!
Please let me know if you have any other suggestions!

I would suggest those thing :
- Pump the numer of Adeliz, the Cinder Wind to 4, or at least 3. This is a beast and destroy the opponent if it stick on the board one turn.
- Howling Golem is meh imo. It could be replaced by Ghitu Journeymage as another 3 drop and dealing 2 to the face.
- Could swap Watertrap Weaver for Exclusion Mage. They are similar but can have a huge difference depending on your local meta.
- Could swap Aven Wind Mage with Wee Dragonauts. Both wizard, both 3 drop, but one say "ez gg win" when you cast 4 instant a turn.
- Get some Maximize Velocity / Maximize Altitude ? Easy trigger for Adeliz and allow you to get in easily.
- More suggestion Negate / Quasiduplicate / Radical Idea ..
All of those should still be budget friendly I think. Also it's just my point of view, you're 100% free to disagree. Good luck with the deck !
