You have a lot of dual devotion black and red cards but the bulk of your deck is blue, you might want to try finding alternatives that serve similar purposes. Hour of Glory is a great sub for Vraska's Contempt. Torment of Hailfire just wont likely be much help and you could replace it and Bontu's Last Reckoning with Harsh Scrutiny. Harsh Scrutiny grabs creatures directly out of their hands. I also think you could cut two Disallow and try out Essence Scatter mainboard for more creature control. Lightning Strike is also a better choice than Harnessed Lightning in my opinion. Strike gives you the ability to do direct player damage and that can win games in matchups against aggro tokens that go wide. Blazing Volley is also a great sideboard for token decks, if you routinely meet any. Primal Amulet is also way too slow and stalls control decks, you could easily replace them with Baral, Chief of Compliance and get similar utility for casting spells cheaper and card draw for every time you counter a spell. It will also draw out removal spells from your opponent at some point, which clears up ways to utilize Hostage Taker. Since most of those spells are significantly cheaper of easier to cast because they dont require multiple devotion, you can also cut one land from the deck and replace it with an extra spell. The only reason I am suggesting these edits is because I too ran a deck very similar to this and I routinely ran into the issues I mentioned, once I changed it up the deck is now monstrous. Good luck.

I know it isn't too important, especially because it's only a card in your sideboard, but if I were you I would switch Electrickery with Blazing Volley. It's one mana less than the overload cost for the same effect.

backinajiffy with thopter 1/1 tokens that come out, as well as servos, it works well. As soul-scar gives me -1/ counters. Which then activates either nest of scarabs or Hapatra. So while I may not be generating a lot of insects I can get a lot of snakes. When they are both out and the combo goes off. well yer, the tokens are good to generate.
The only problem with Blazing Volley is that its sorcery speed. But if my opponent generates tokens on my turn I can simply get my own tokens out etc etc.

@Hyacathusarullistad I would say so, all hour of promise has is some ramp and possible zombies, neither of which help the -1/-1 theme. Also channeler initiate has ramp that synergizes with the theme. Also if you edit red in. Soul scar MageBlazing Volley and Grind / Dust are far better than splendid agony. Also scorpion God with red can add much needed draw oulets

Curious on the below:
Why did you decide to go 3 Nest of Scarabs rather than 4? Seems like that's the card the deck is built around and its only 3 mana. It also stacks extremely well.
What has been your general success rate? I built a deck around nest of scarbs as well and am winning majority of games but its extremely token driven.
