The thing that I don't like with Jace Beleren + Notion Thief is that you're probably using two turns to draw three cards and put a 3/1 body on the board, and that's pretty slow. But yeah, playtest and keep playtesting to find out what you like.
Despise is kinda narrow, modern has a lot of combo things like pod, scapeshift, and twin that you'd really want to hit the non-creatures. But it works very nicely against aggro given how cheap it is.
A thing you could do that I found worked (on a low budget too) is to use things like Dimir Charm, Psychic Strike, and counterspells/killspells with Extirpate and Surgical Extraction to pick out things you don't like and leave all of them dead for good. I drafted up a deck that was ~$70 with no pains/fetches, and it 2-0'd storm, soul sisters, and rdw. I had Master of Cruelties + any way to deal 1 damage as my win con, a little janky but works. But that's a completely different deck that apparently uses grixis colors haha.
It's sweet to see you added an official sideboard, looks great! Dimir Charm is great black/blue utility and Shipwreck Singer makes their creatures suicide bomb you for 4 mana once shes up. Definitely agree on the Vapor Snag suggestion and you adding Warden of Evos Isle
No duskmantle GuildMage or Mindcrank??? I'm shocked. that combo is a lot less expensive than the traumatize/keeningstone combo, its a t4 win at best(the keening stone one is, at best, a win on t7 IF they don't negate/ Tome Scour while the traumatize keening stone is l8r in game. also, damnation fits fine and all due to the lack of creatures but spells like Malicious Affliction can be much more useful. Hedron Crab?Darkslick Shores?Drowned Catacomb?no planes walkers of fetchs?Psychic Drain?Darkness? (anti aggro for sure)Dimir Charm?? (could make it so opponents only draw land)Diabolic Vision?
You have plenty of game-state screwers, I would add some ramping artifacts to help you get to those expensive ones. Like Dreamstone Hedron, Sisay's Ring, Ur-Golem's Eye, Sol Ring, Semblance Anvil, Rakdos Charm, Dimir Charm, Izzet Charm, Manalith, Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, Gemstone Array, etc.
Also where is your Choice of Damnations?
!!!!!!!DISREGARD ALL OF MY PREVIOUS COMMENTS!!!!!!Here is My NEW list of cards to be added(I don't change what I have cuz this is my ACTUAL MTG deck. I don't have any of the cards in this list (But ill get them!)P.S. I will take out red. Yes, I know I said I wouldn't, but I will!):
ARTIFACTSIsochron Scepter 2Defense Grid 1 (against those pesky counter decks to give me a turn or two of counter-protection)Mesmeric Orb 1 (Maybe against green or aggros)Mindcrank 2 (DefinitelyKeening Stone 1 (With Traumatize? Oh yes))
Dimir Charm is a lot worse. Insectile Aberration Flip is a relevant threat that it cannot hit, not to mention myriad other 3+ power guys. The counter for sorceries is a little overcosted, and the last ability is nearly useless.
