First off, welcome to Magic!
I would cut Fabricate. There's a reason tutors are not common in Modern--Modern is very fast-paced, and you cannot afford to be a turn behind trying to find a card. Instead, consider adding more cantrips (1-mana card draw spells). Four copies of Opt helps dig through your deck and find the cards you want.
Rather than three copies of Syncopate, consider running two copies of Logic Knot. While Logic Knot costs more and does not exile, you likely will have your graveyard full of cantrips, counterspells, fogs, etc. Unlike Syncopate, which requires you to have a significant amount of open mana, Logic Knot just requires you to exile cards you were not going to use anyway.
Delver of Secrets Flip is a solid win condition in a spell-heavy deck. You can drop it turn 1, then happily deal 3 evasive damage per turn while countering away. While Delver does get bounced by Thing in the Ice Flip, the two actually work well in tandem--Delver provides solid early game pressure, getting your opponent close enough that Awoken Horror can swing for the kill the turn it is transformed.

Awoken Horror would revert back to Thing in the Ice Flip in the graveyard so you would just get a Thing in the Ice Flip. Just think about Startled Awake Flip in the graveyard it is still Startled Awake Flip so you can use its ability. Hope this helps:)

Say I was building a Lazav, the Multifarious deck and I want to copy a 7/8 for two mana (because Awoken Horror retains its CMC from Thing in the Ice Flip. Could I do that or would I just get a copy of Thing in the Ice Flip?

I'm very fond of a couple Faithless Looting to help you dig for cards you need. And also a little more counter spells. Remand for card draw and stall. Spell Pierce i'm finding is very good against aggro decks and early game because players tend to spend all their mana the first 3 turns. Dispel work against other control decks and I see you have already taken a liking to Stubborn Denial.

Deruvid turn 2 Bedlam Reveler is cool, but isn't the game plan. When its dropped turn 2, usually your sitting with 3 cards. Since you are drawing 3 cards, and a bunch of digging tactics, it wont be hard to get to titi or beat down your opponents. The real goal is dropping Titi and flipping it turn 3, which is possible with Simian Spirit Guide. I do find the guide does sit in the hand every so often so maybe a 3 off might work better. Im finding that Vapor Snag is very powerful for keeping creatures out of the way and providing extra damage. Everything in the deck is meant to get an Awoken Horror or Bedlam Reveler out

You need to go away from the control aspect and start working towards how quick you can make your deck go off. I have managed to make my deck consistently go off turn 4

SeekerofSecrets thanks for the upvote! I defiantly feel like Enigma Drake doesnt get enough love. I have actually been thinking hard about replacing Young Peezy with Thing in the Ice Flip. I dont feel the deck has room for both and I dislike how they interact. TiTi can help you come back from some situations where Peezy would not. And I think TiTi can kill faster than Peezy can. Another cool thing is that Bedlam Reveler is a horror so TiTi doesnt bounce it. It usually only takes one hit from Awoken Horror to get them into burn range.
rothgar13 thanks for the upvote! I agree with what you said about Fumarole but I thought they were worth testing out. They defiantly make one land keeps a lot worse for sure. I considered Logic Knot and Grim Lavamancer but they make Enigma Drake pretty weak and Bedlam Reveler impossible to cast.
