Hi there! This looks like a really sweet deck, and I hope you enjoy playing Modern! I have a few suggestions for you:
- Delver of Secrets Flip is a great card for a deck like this, as it's often a 3/2 with flying for just one mana. I would highly recommend running the full 4 copies if you can.
- I generally like Young Pyromancer instead of Stormchaser Mage in the 2-slot, as it's a little easier on your mana, and the tokens stay around so you can store them up for a few turns before the lethal swing.
- You might want to run a few counterspells to prevent your opponent from doing whatever is is they're trying to do; Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, and Remand are all great, and Spell Snare is also good (though slightly expensive).
- Instead of Valorous Stance, I would recommend running something like Oust, Condemn, or Path to Exile. White has really good options for unconditional removal in Modern for just one mana, and the indestructible mode of Valorous Stance just doesn't come up all that much imo.
- Finally, Electrolyze is another card worth considering, as it can get rid of pesky Lingering Souls tokens and draws you a card at the same time.
If you're looking for a non-budget deck that's pretty similar to yours, I run a Jeskai Delver deck in Modern that I really enjoy: Delving into America.
In any case, I hope I helped. Have fun with your deck!

I think you might be running a few too many creatures for a standard Grixis control list. I Most run 2 Tasigurs and a playset of Snapcasters. I think I would either cut some of the creatures or just go full on Grixis Delver with Delver of Secrets Flip, because you are kinda of in between that and control. Either which way you go, you should find some room to have some number of Fatal Push and Electrolyze in your list. If you go control you will need 1-2 lands, if you go Delver then you can drop a land or two.

1x Think Twice
This was a change I was originally hesitant to make, but after playing with it for around a month or so I think it is necessary for the deck to have. I did not like serum visions because it does not provide any card advantage and is sorcery speed, but after using it I have found that the digging it does to help keep our deck more consistent is very necessary and very relevant.
Now, here are the reason I took out the cards I did:
1.) Lightning Bolt:
As much as I don't want to admit this, lightning bolt just is not a great card right now. with all the big mana decks and Death's Shadow running around everywhere, it is embarrassing to just go to their face and try to win with aggressive means. I have had to do this too many times so I finally decided to drop one.
2.) Think Twice:
Now that we have better card selection, I do not think having 3 main deck think twice is very good as this is not our primary way to dig for cards anymore. I still like 2 for the reasons stated in the primer, but 3 seems too durdly for me. Adjust these numbers how you see fit and if there are more hand disruption decks in your meta move the visions down in favor of think twices.
Similarly to the think twice argument, we are now digging for cards in a much more efficient way, so we can have fewer of these 2 for 1's because we see them more frequently and more consistently. This card also has a similar feel to lightning bolt sometimes in being almost totally dea outside of going to the dome. This is the worst way to use it, but we still want a few as the potential 3 for 1 is insane value.

Sorry for the delayed response. Depending on your budget there's a few cards I'd consider.
As far as what to consider removing, I'd actually look to reduce the number of copies of Grapeshot and Empty the Warrens. Combined with your big creatures, you run the risk of getting flooded with win conditions and losing the game before they can become relevant.

I don't think you should replace all the Electrolyzes, as they are one of the cards you have that let you draw in opponents turn (and this is important to miracle decks). My suggestion is: minus 1 each of Bloodwater Entity, Electrolyze, Ral Zarek, and Magma Jet, +4 Path to Exile. I'm not sure I understand what Ral Zarek is doing in the deck in the first place...
Also, are you still playing the bouncelands in your list? Because... they are really terrible.

I think you're right with pretty much all of that. Fewer loots for thought scour makes sense right now.
Dispel has been phenomenal for me. Best spicy 2-of ever. It's been relevant every time I've drawn it so far. It counters path, company, and stubborn denial, so it wins a lot of games for me right now. And main deck burn hate is always good. It's not good against affinity or tron, but I think it's still worth it.
Kalitas is probably a necessary evil in the deck. He's awkward when I want to get aggressive, but he wins games against enough of the meta. I forgot that he is my only out to company decks in game 1. Fatal push decks are generally really good matchups so kalitas being bad there is likely fine.
I think in this meta Murderous Cut is too costly. I've been finding it hard to cast recently. I'll put another terminate in its place.
You're right about Electrolyze. Eot deal 2 draw 1 sounds nice, but it doesn't do enough.
I feel like I need to add more to my sideboard to help my deck race. The deck is just too slow against eldrazitron, UW control, and titan shift. Engineered Explosives can probably be cut or trimmed. It's usually too much mana. But I don't know what to add. Every deck has graveyard hate in games 2 and 3, so more delve threats won't help much. I could do something absurd like Hellspark Elemental or Soul-Scar Mage or Stormchaser Mage or Thing in the Ice or Harsh Mentor, but I don't know if any of those would work.
