Also I'm unsure if this can even beat UW control. Nothing in here beats and everything dies to Supreme Verdict or Terminus. Gutteral response and choke are quite good, but protection from blue isn't a useful ability.

Yeah, I know that. It's why I describe Boil and Boiling Seas as Armageddon instead of "one-sided Armageddon", though the other island-turners are there to try and make it more one-sided. The goal is to stick a walker while the foe has a negligible board, then boil the islands away and then just win off of the planeswalker in the rebuilding turns.

I just thought of something you should probably consider Julesreddragon. Nothing in your sideboard does much (or anything) against control. In general Cavern of Souls would help, but until then here are some cards I think you should consider: Guttural Response, Ricochet Trap, and/or Boil. I am partial to Guttural Response over Ricochet Trap because Guttural can counter Gifts Ungiven in storm decks (which is pretty big in the meta right now), as well as the niche decks that use it to put big creatures in the graveyard to reanimate. However, I have known others to have the argument of saying they like Ricochet Trap better because while it can also counter counterspells (you change the target to Ricochet Trap, and when Ricochet rseolves their counterspell fizzles on the stack) it can change the targets of things like Lightning Bolts, Lightning Helixs, Path to Exiles, and the rare Ancestral Vision that would allow YOU to draw three. I haven't seen that card in the meta recently, but still a possibility. I felt that Guttural Response was more relevant, but I can't deny changing the targets of things to save your planeswalkers and creatures is also good.
With miracles now a thing in modern, Boil is also a pretty good card to look into. They may very well counter it, but being an instant if you cast it on their end step and they counter it, it may open up one turn for you to land the one threat you need to beat their face. Also, control never really leaves the meta. It doesn't hurt to have one or two cards that can play against them.
Based on the sideboard you currently have I would recommend taking out two Grafdigger's Cage, and one Batterskull for two Guttural Responses or Ricochet Traps, and the one Boil. Now, if you end up taking the Relic of Progenitus out of your mainboard, I would change that to take out Batterskull, one Pithing Needle, and then a third thing of your choice. Whatever may not be prevalent in your meta. These cards may seem specific to control, but your control matchup is pretty bad. Your cards are big and most likely you'll only be casting one spell a turn which they can easily counter and continue to counter because a lot of their spells replace themselves.

After looking at the deck again and reading my comment after post, Blood Moon makes triple red a lot easier doesn't it?
Best of luck and have fun!

Just gonna bring this up to make sure you know it, Rugged Prairie + Damping Sphere = ... since if you use it to filter like you want to it technically creates 2 colored mana. Just a cause for concern.
The other option that you have for the list (since you have so much life gain) is running 3-4 Eidolon of the Great Revel. A lot of decks are hurt by it since it is so taxing on life. I think that either Eidolon or Canonist should be present in the SB.
I would also take out the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breakers and shift them for Baneslayer Angel. Kiki can't block, and can be bolted, Baneslayer Angel is at best a 6/6 first striking/lifelinker/flier with extra upside after... that sounds better than an optional infinite resto's and makes the mana base slightly more consistent (no more !)
Also agree with above that Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass would be good for the deck in the side! I'd cut 1 Stony Silence and the 2 Boil. I know counterspells are an issue for you, but Blood Moon is better than boil since most lands are non-basic.

Cool project you got there...I'm thinking the partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as a possible cEDH voltron with MLD and artifact destruction (like Boil) for a start. Since stax is out of the question, maybe a Sunforger package including Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast/Lapse of Certainty/Dawn Charm/Mana Tithe. Obviously tutors including Enlightened Tutor/Gamble/etc. Additionally, Puresteel Paladin/Sigarda's Aid should be in there.
