Actually Browbeat probably wouldn't be a bad addition either

Manabase is too slow with 6 tap land, early turn mana is very important.
Browbeat Is just bad all decks can take that 5 damage at least once and 3 mana sorcery speed spell which rarely does anything viable is not good.
No Mana Leak seems bit weird.
Grixis Charm Could be one off, it does everything you need.
And why you have 4x Cruel Edict in sideboard, but no gravehate at all?
And you have only 2 boardwipes which makes you very vulnerable to all aggro decks like Affinity, Elves, different Coco decks.
So changes i would make:
-2x Wurmcoil Engine
And maybe some amounts of Lightning Bolts out.
And if you ever want to cast Keranos, God of Storms i think that 21 lands is way too low amount of lands, usually Control decks plays around 25-26 lands anyway.

Thanks for the comment TreyV, I think this deck is meant to be too quick to take advantage of some of the best blue cards like Snapcaster Mage. Thoughtscour comes to mind if I were to try and dive into that though!
That flavor on Browbeat is right on with the whole brew Xyckno! Thanks, that would be a fun card to play and would be good after hopefully dumping some things out of my hand in the first couple turns.

I like to play Browbeat in these kind of decks.

Hey... I've made over four dozen decks on this site and can offer you some advice-
First, I see a deck that wants to focus on Isochron Scepter, but does not have any tutor or card draw for the artifact.
Your wishes for Thermo-Alchemist are cute, but save it for Pauper. That card doesn't have the power level for Modern and there's another thing: when you tap down for to cast your Scepter turn 2, you are the most vulnerable (no threat on field, no mana open, potential to get 2-for-1'd if they blow up Scepter). The last thing you'll want to follow up with is a 0/3 creature that also does nothing for a turn.
If you like Pingers so much and happen to lock the opponent down with the Silence + Isochron Scepter combo, (you'd have this in opening hand), I suggest Goblin Fireslinger so you'll have the right T1 play to set yourself up.
Paraselene shouldn't be mainboard. I've never seen that card merit to be played and I don't see any interaction between it and the rest of your deck. Plus, it's CMC and sorcery.
Forked Bolt is also sorcery, so find something else to run over it. I say this because the Sceptre only works for instants...
I know that it is expensive and you may think it is too much of a downside, but trust me, run at least 3 Path to Exile (you are in White after all, there won't be any other effective counter to Death's Shadow, as your opponent can manipulate it's toughness rather easily).

Seems pretty creature heavy given what you're shooting for, I think. Take advantage of the blue with some bounce and/or counter (Mana Leak, Syncopate, Vapor Snag, another Cyclonic Rift). I would pick the Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind over dracogenius if you're wanting to do things with card draw and maybe some Faithless Looting, Desperate Ravings, or Dangerous Wager, maybe Browbeat or Reforge the Soul . Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops are killer, especially with a few Artful Dodge, which has that nice flashback. Maybe drop the Wee Dragonauts since you've already got a playset of Stormchaser Mage and the 2 Enigma Drake. Maybe cut down on the number of Bloodwater Entity and replace them with instants or sorceries. It's nice to pull from the graveyard, I like Mystic Retrieval for that since the flashback means I don't feel bad about discarding it.
I realize I just wrote a lot. I'm currently working on converting my vintage Izzet to modern so these are things I've been thinking about recently anyways. Hope at least a little bit of this is helpful.
