You obviously know the deck much better than me, but it seems like Distortion Strike is a serious wincon. If it were me, I'd run at least 3x of that.
Also, as a utility in case of disruption or removal when setting off the kill switch, I think it would be good to have something like Spell Pierce or Stubborn Denial or Force Spike. Maybe one or two of, just in case.
And finally, Narset's Reversal targetting your own spells, is a great way to up your spell count in a turn.
That's all I got. Cheers!

Nevinyrral_Mayor_of_Urborg Teferi's Veil and Vanishing are extremely underappreciated cards you can throw on commanders or valuable creatures and keep them alive; Aether Tunnel and Aqueous Form are cheap and reliable ways to ensure combat damage while things like Distortion Strike Artful Dodge and Slip Through Space all allow someone to sneak in for a huge hit of damage and provides a small boost to a couple of your creatures by being in the yard. And Trailblazer's Boots pretty much read unblockable in most EDH games.

I think you need pump spells, and to just run somewhere between 10-16 good evasive or cheap infect critters.
I'd like to recommend Vector Asp, even though you have to pay for the infect, you still need something on the battlefield on turn 1.

Depending on what you're wanting it for, Hunted Troll can be replaced. Clackbridge Troll is the only other one that gives opponents creatures, but I think you're just looking for a big creature to beat your opponents with. Verdurous Gearhulk is probably your best replacement, even if you just play it as a 8/8 trample for 5.
Echoing Truth doesn't have a perfect replacement in your colors: Selective Snare is the closest answer to Hunted Troll faeries. Bile Blight and Legion's End in black. Declaration in Stone Detention Sphere and Deputy of Detention in white. As long as you don't need to answer tokens you gave the opponent, there are plenty of options: Disperse Expel from Orazca Perilous Voyage Cyclonic Rift Brazen Borrower Simic Charm .

Funkydiscogod I totally get your point, Modern decks is much faster and resilient than this, and Pioneer should probably suit this deck better, I guess. Ghostform and Aether Tunnel is the best substitutes I can find in exchange for Artful Dodge and Distortion Strike , and the "power drop" on Vapor Snag , Echoing Truth , Overrun and Hunted Troll (as you say) by their sub is uncertain at this point.
I have barely played any pioneer so I actually don't know how a deck with the lesser substitutes would fair in the format. What do you think? :) I really appreciate the input btw, must think this over, and I like the opportunity to mix things up! :D

equipment such like prying blade are less effective than instant/sorceries.
Would suggest rebound cards like Distortion Strike as the boost/cast happens twice.
offensive cantrips like Crash Through will help you punch through blockers
Spellstutter Sprite wont be able to counter many spells as you only have 3 faeries

Have you considered Skred or Distortion Strike ? Skred fits your theme and typically kills what it hits. Distortion Strike could win you the game in two swings (or one with Marit Lage). Genesis Wave seems like it would also add to your deck by filling the field with snow permanents and you can hit most of the permanents in your deck with x=3/4. Hope this helps.
