Hi! I have a few suggestions.
If you are going to try to draw Approach of the Second Sun consistently, you might consider going into blue for effects like Serum Visions and Sleight of Hand. When you're playing a fog deck, you typically don't mind your opponent drawing cards with you, since the fogs do such a good job of generating a kind of card advantage (just one fog negates the effect of many creatures). This is why "turbofog" decks run Howling Mine, Dictate of Kruphix and even Fevered Visions.
Your heart is in the right place with the inclusion of New Benalia, however you are also playing 4 Evolving Wilds. This has potential to mess up your scrying. Scrying has a kind of value, there is interesting debate surrounding this topic Here
I would also cut Ghirapur Orrery, as it is much slower than the other card-draw permanents I mentioned. While Expose Evil, Bandage and Niveous Wisps do cycle themselves, if you implement some card-draw engine as I've suggested, you can turn a non-cycling fog into a cycling fog, simply by giving yourself another draw step. A cursory list of fog effects in white can be found here. Green also has a plethora of efficient and "playable" fog effects, if branching into another color interests you.
Temple of Enlightenment will help with the transition to blue/white immensely. Cards like Pentad Prism are your only realistic choice for mana ramp in these colors, which you will certainly find necessary in such a fast format as Modern. Take a look at some Ad Nauseam and turbo-turns lists to get an idea of what you might consider adding into your deck. Additionally, Boseiju, Who Shelters All is simply an auto-include, possibly as a 2-of in the maindeck.
I understand that these cards aren't necessarily budget but there was no indication that you needed a budget. I wish you the best of luck in brewing with this awesome win condition.

Well I was playing my R/G aggro commander (omanth, locus of rage) and my friend and a few others were trading blows with each other, course the guy with the control deck had his Ojutai commander in play with Mana open to shut stuff down.
He was gonna kill me next turn because I was doing very scary things with omnath as per usual.
So I swung out on him expecting removal~
He casts Cyclonic Rift, overloaded to bounce my obnoxious amount of tokens
So I sac them all in response to cast a spell Soulblast, which he couldn't respond to, cuz saccing was part of paying the spell. Thought I had him on the brink with enough for lethal on the triggers and the spell itself alike.
He misdirects it to me and I die to my own Soulblast. The Omnath triggers are exiled upon my Face exploding.
...Needless to say I've put a little bit into the deck. There is now Boseiju, Who Shelters All specifically so I can tell control people to fuck off to.
I can't wait to tell him to fuck off lol.

Great deck bud. It handles well and can basically play the whole deck before turn 10. With that being said there are a few suggestions I have that can make sure that last turn where you start dropping all your bombs is even better.
I cannot see any way in which your deck wouldn't absolutely benefit from Akroma's Memorial. It's tutorable, colorless, and you easily hit the mana to drop it between Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx & Gaea's Cradle.
Boseiju, Who Shelters All is another tutorable land that is nothing but value as you have little answers to counterspells.
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as you deck has some high cost cards that I concede you have no issue in dropping, but he is both aggro and control that you can tutor for.
Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant as great early protection. You can even drop him before Sisay if you draw him.
Iona, Shield of Emeria will be a great way to lock down most opponents.
Any Eldrazi titan
A few cards I would take out for these include
Dosan the Falling Leaf (unless you tend to pop off on your turn most times.)
Most of these could be wrong to remove or add against your playgroup's meta, but this is just what I would change.
Still like the deck a lot.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Lingering Souls and Timely Reinforcements are better in traditional Aristocrat strategies, I think. They're still good here for gumming up the board, but since Rally doesn't hit them, they're a bit tricky to fit in.

Spicy +1 Counterlash looks fun - i'd all most consider 1 copy of Boseiju, Who Shelters All just to make it uncounterable, and because you have the land searching mechanics for itAs a suggestion, if you want a cheap(ish) but still powerful combo finder: Gifts Ungiven.
Having said that, it looks awesome as is! good job man :D

If you want to run a full spell deck with Wort (Wich I do and it's a lot of fun), you can add Stunted Growth, Rebuking Ceremony and Plow Under to really deconstruct a board. Also, Vicious Shadows can be pretty neat at making sure no one wipes a board ever. On the "destruction" side, Decimate can be disgusting with this commander, especially if you decide to run Reverberate and/or Mirrari.
On the "one-shot someone whenever because lol" front, Brightstone Ritual can give you the mana for insanely stupid fireballs, as well as Dictate of the Twin Gods (you can turn a 15 damage spell in 60 damage with it).
For some other fancy spells, Bonfire of the Damned can be great at wiping down someone's board and life.
And in order to 100-0 someone again, you could use Past in Flames and have fun again
