One thing that's a significant issue is that you have no way to cast Thought-Knot Seer. He requires , but none of your lands can produce it nor do you have any mana rocks / dorks that do it either.

@Songbird0 It's been a while, hasn't it? Not too much has changed, but I'll go through them :D
Horn of Greed -> Temple Bell I have better control of when the card draw happens, and I think it is psychologically beneficial for me to be the one causing the card draw (if you want I can take more time to explain my thoughts on this). Either way, it also fits the Kamigawa theme better, so I made the trade.
Crucible of Worlds -> Didn't make the cut. I tested this out, and I felt that this isn't the deck for this card. Even with 6 supporting cards (2 fetch lands, my 2 lands that require untapped lands to be sacrificed, Buried Ruin, Trade Routes), there obviously is no guarantee that it will be paired with enough value, especially since my tutors will be looking for some kind of combo win instead. Usually when I drew this, I wanted the card I traded out for it (Expropriate) instead, so I traded it back.
Hinder -> Cloudstone Curio. Hinder was my weakest counterspell, and was an artifact from when tucking a commander was able to be done. I was already thinking of taking it out, and I needed space for this card anyway, so I made this substitution.

Well, TBH, you do not really need that much fixing in 2 color decks. Rarity is determined as the lowest rarity a card is in current standard. For example, while Grasp of Darkness was once a common, for this format it will be an uncommon and you are only allowed 2.
And you are forgetting Aether Hub, Spire of Industry, Crumbling Vestige (for a turn), Evolving Wilds, Holdout Settlement, Unknown Shores, not to mention Attune with Aether, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Sylvan Scrying, etc.
I have neglected to mention Prophetic Prism and other artifacts. Enchantments too.
The fixing is plentiful actually, you just have to look beyond the rares that are played in tables of today's standard.
Additionally, the best fixing is at rare, but stretching your rare count to include lands, means your deck will be more consistent but less powerful - that is tension in the deckbuilding that does not exist right now.

Eldrazi Obligator was one of my fav aggro eldrazi. Just need to add some colorless producing lands like Aether Hub or the more affordable Crumbling Vestige. And I would definitely play Wasteland Strangler. Just great killing an early blocker and adding a threat.
Away from budget, a playset of Foreboding Ruins or Smoldering Marsh would instantly make it better. I always invest in lands first as they make the most difference, and can easily be used in other decks. Good luck!

I like a good Creativity list. It's interesting to see what kinds of creature packages different people like. I saw one that went for four Lightning Runners for the infinite combo out of nowhere. I tend to go for creature keyword abuse with Odric, Lunarch Marshal and one offs of things like Angel of Invention, Reality Smasher and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger (with of course the Needle Spires). I like your Thalia's Lancers and Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light package too.
I think the Shock isn't really that creative. They're great in a conventional way of course. But I've tried out some weird things like Warping Wail and Spark of Creativity and I feel like they work (mostly) and are much more stylish. Although with Wail, you might be forced to replace a few Inspiring Vantage with something like Crumbling Vestige to deal with the mana demands.

Ok, some changes made. Yavimaya Elder in for Crumbling Vestige (an early game Elder will provide excellent card draw and land fetch, thinning the deck by at least three cards per turn, if not more); Phyrexian Plaguelord in, Baloth Null out; Eternal Witness in for Restock (recursion makes it too good to pass up); Carnival of Souls in for Decaying Soil (the price for keeping Decaying Soil around is too steep, as I need the cards in my graveyard); Necropotence in for Blood Bairn (going to give it a try).
Always looking for some more comments!

Ditch Gnarlroot Trapper and put in Elvish Mystic; mystic is just generally better. Another way you can take it is like I did. (take a look at my deck) Since you use lots of blink cards I would recommend Servant of the Conduit and Aether Hub so you can produce all the colors you may need. I would remove Beastcaller Savant for the servant.
Here's my frontier deck if you'd like to take a look: An Elvish Frontier.
Skybolt, I don't mean to sound mean, but you're incorrect. Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes produce the same colorless mana as Westvale Abbey Flip or Crumbling Vestige; the only thing that changed was the image they use to show colorless mana.
