Counterspell is not modern legal.

Mana Leak is great but Remand gives me a counter plus it lets me draw a card. Card draw is extremely important in this deck because it gives me more opportunities to land the win-condition combo.

Battlefield Thaumaturge makes my Descent of the Dragons cost 2R if I target 4 creatures.

Dragon Tempest gives those new 4/4 dragons haste but also creates a condition that allows me to burn my opponent for X times X. In other words, if I sacrifice 4 creatures I not only create 4 4/4 Dragons but I also do 4 X 4 = 16 damage to target creature or player (The dragons all hit the board simultaneously). 2R for the ability to burn for 16 and to flood my board with 4/4 dragons with haste is insane.

I really like the interaction between Battlefield Thaumaturge and Icy Blast. Got me, here's an idea: go up to 4 of them, and run more cards that interact well with them.

Things like Rolling Thunder would be insane: for the low low price of , just targeting every creature on the battlefield (even your own, because why not?), you could deal damage divided as you choose, "...and I'll start by choosing 0 damage for all of my stuff". Or, Comet Storm, where dealing X damage to every critter they control becomes free. They would go bonkers with two or more Thaumaturge on the battlefield.

If you go into other colors, you can get some more fun stuff; The most interesting is Profane Command, since you can target every creature on the battlefield, just to make X large, and you can choose something else for the second mode. Then, attack with a likely unblockable army.

Maybe Akroan Crusader to help the pyromancer clutter up the board with tokens?

It looks like this deck was built from a limited collection of cards. While not an invalid strategy, you'll probably have more success by brewing a prototype here and purchasing the singles. If your expectations aren't too high, it's pretty easy to make a solid deck on a budget. To start with, I'd identify what cards, abilities, or strategies you like in green/blue and focus in one 1 or 2. Then, search around to see if anyone else has built decks with similar ideas. This may give you some inspiration for what cards and combos you want to build around. Just from what you have here, I see some paths you could take. Satyr Wayfinder and Tome Scour could be in a graveyard focused deck with cards like Splinterfright and Mindshrieker. Axebane Guardian and Crush of Tentacles could be in a ramp control deck with cards like Kruphix, God of Horizons and Plasm Capture. Setessan Oathsworn and Stratus Walk could be in U/G heroic with cards like Battlefield Thaumaturge and Solidarity of Heroes. All of that is just scratching the surface though. With some exploration, you should be able to find an archetype that fits your style. Then, you can get to adding the meat of the deck.

View from Above fits in perfectly, definitely going to find a place. the only reason I dismissed Battlefield Thaumaturge is because it would only work with Hidden Strings. with it being a card I want to drop early and using its ability to untap the mana spent on it i decided against it.

maybe there is 2 or 3 drop instants and sorcery's that would fit in this deck and make Battlefield Thaumaturge more viable

Battlefield Thaumaturge, View from Above, and a Paradise Mantle on Nivmagus Elemental? I don't know, just brainstorming.

I do have a flicker deck that also started GU but became WGU after some time. Still you might want to have a look at it as it's cheap but pretty powerful:

Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker)

I card i really love in my list is Battlefield Thaumaturge as he cheapens every single flicker spell by 2.

I have a bant coloured flicker deck that abuses the combination of Eternal Witness and Displace. Maybe take a look for some inspiration: Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker)

A card that is awesome with the combo is Mulldrifter. You can evoke it, then respond with ghostly flicker on mulldrifter and archaeomancer, which results in you drawing four cards and keeping the drifter. This usually is six mana, but you can reduce this with Battlefield Thaumaturge or Baral, Chief of Compliance.

Chandra's Phoenix can be removed. Thousand Winds can be replaced by Cyclonic Rift. Disciple of the Ring can be removed. Ember Swallower should certainly be removed.Kheru Spellsnatcher can be replaced by Counterspell. Opaline Unicorn can be removed. Tyrant of Discord isn't necessary to be played in the deck. Battlefield Thaumaturge isn't that great in the deck. Bloodfire would be better in a more creature based deck.Aggressive Mining should be removed. Conjured Currency can be removed.
