Burn Away deals 6 damage to target creature. When that creature dies this turn, exile all cards from its controller's graveyard.

So far, I found it very dependent on cards that discard. Because of that I put back in Wild Guess and added Mad Prophet. I also found room for All Is Dust because I was definitely lacking in the board wipe category. As much as I love Vedalken Orrery, the fact that Feldon's ability can be done at instant speed if needed is enough for me to take it out. This deck struggles against recursion decks like Karador, Ghost Chieftain. So I added Burn Away to help with that. Might even add in Relic of Progenitus since recursion is pretty popular in my meta, thought having to exile it is bit of a turn off. And finally I added Avalanche Riders because there are A LOT of decks in my meta that run Maze of Ith and it's really, really, really annoying haha.

Ooo BABY! I love it. Great suggestions.
Also you say it "has potential" any cards you consider dead weight?

So, after looking through 'Take The Crown' there were 7 reprinted cards and a single new wolf creature card that caught my eye as being possibly useful for wolven decks.
Fang Of the pack The only new wolf creature in the set.
Burn Away Good sideboard card for any deck really, end's delirium decks on the spot.
Gruul War Chant Maybe a good late game sweeper card if you can get a few strong flipped wolve's out.
Flame Slash Cheap Removal.
If anything else from the set stands out to you please share :)

For time and space reasons, as of now, I'm just linking uncommon and common reprints.
When Marchesa's Decree enters the battlefield, you become the monarch.
Whenever a creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control, the controller of that creature loses 1 life.
(Hey! A better pacifism!)
Reprints in Alphabetical:
Ugh... I might wait on the commons, this is really taxing.

Oh yea, if you ever run into problematic mill effects, or graveyard hate. Learn from the Past is instant speed so you can respond to a Morningtide or Burn Away (even though I'm pretty sure I'm the only one using those.)
But it can also be grabbed with Mystic Retrieval if you're being milled out too fast and need a reset.
Also Burn Away if you run into graveyard strategies. It's big enough to hit a Rune-Scarred Demon or Sun Titan and instant speed. A pretty underrated gem if I do say so, it doesn't draw any hate from the entire table like Rest in Peace does.
I think you're not running enough proactive spells to sling at your opponents. Prophetic Bolt and Slagstorm both pull double duty, but it looks like most of your deck is behaving almost like a combo. You've got a lot of draw, loot, and filtering to find Twincast Mana Geyser and dump it all into a Comet Storm effect.
I think dropping an Urza's Rage in their will round out your burn suite.
I really, really like Melek, UR is definitely my favorite 2 color combo. I'm considering building a deck for him in the future which would run pretty much every lightning bolt and copy spell to burn my opponents faces.

The problem with most of these cards is the price, I've been meaning to find a way to trade for a Reiterate so I can put in a Seething Song and get infinite that way, in addition to Deadeye/Peregrine. I love Time Stretch, and I use to have one, but traded it away a few months before I made this deck, looking to trade for a new one. Mindswipe, AEtherspouts, Vandalblast, Burn from Within and Cyclonic Rift all sound great. I do like Burn Away and Into the Maw of Hell because they both easily shut down infinite combos while providing nice utility outside of that.
