Barren Moor isnt modern legal, if you want something that is still fairly cheap and has a similar effect you could try Desert of the Glorified it is a little easier to access than some other cycling lands. Archfiend of Ifnir, Faith of the Devoted, and Shadow of the Grave might also be a good investment into improving your cycling, not to mention they are also fairly cheap.

I don't know what kind of theme or way of winning you are trying to go for. you don't really have a way to win with this deck. You need to get some kind of combo. Zur is very powerful because he can tutor an enchantment out of your deck so use that to your advantage and try to put in cards that are 3 or less so that your commander can have a greater effect. Try to go find an infinite combo or you can also build stax. You won't win consistently if you don't have an infinite combo. You might find other versions of zur on this site that are good (probably not). CEDH Reddit can probably help you out... though some of the things might be expensive. The things I suggested are just a couple relatively cheap cards that make a big impact. Try to have a theme in your deck whether it is control/combo or voltron or pillowfort.

I would definitely recommend picking up 4 copies of your important cards. These would be Vile Manifestation, Horror of the Broken Lands, Grisly Survivor. You should also pick up some copies of Archfiend of Ifnir and Cast Out, maybe a few Forsake the Worldly or Faith of the Devoted For more consistency I would definitely recommend playing all the copies you're allowed to of the important cards. For what to cut, just get rid of the 1-of or 2-of cards that don't work well with the strategy.

Great suggestions, Oculus84! I ran this deck with Drake Haven and/or Faith of the Devoted at some points both main- and sideboard, and they didn't do much. This deck's worst matchup, I would say, is UW Approach control. They usually have enough mana to get around Censor, Haze of Pollen doesn't do anything, and Gideon's Intervention kills this deck, so, naturally, I want more diverse wincons. That's where these two would come in, but draining 2 or making a 2/2 flier won't do much against lifegain. Stir the Sands just as underwhelming as Drake Haven.
Kefnet, Kefnet, the least appreciated god, and yet my favourite, how did I not think of him for this deck? Blocker against aggro, lowers my curve, draws cards, and finally, can return excessive cyclelands to my hand to draw even more cards! I'm an idiot. Thanks, Oculus84.

If you want to do something incredibly silly for your papercuts
Doing this later in the game, along with some other more powerful draw power that you can get, you can spend anywhere from 2-5 mana per turn to just drop everyone else's life a sizable chunk each turn, and you won't lose any cards you don't want to lose because you'll just be placing your cards on top of your deck because of Library of Leng.

You need discard outlet, if you want to really use Drake Haven/Astral Slide/Faith of the Devoted effectively, you need ways to easily enable draw, discard, or cycle, and enable you to save your cards. You can either use Cycling with Abandoned Sarcophagus or you can use Forgotten Creation/Library of Leng to constantly sift your hand, while triggering discard effects. You can then toss in Alhammarret's Archive to help the draw.
Basically, if you want to run Astral Slide, you need to be able to reliably trigger its effects, and that means you need ways to be able to draw/discard/cycle on command. Also, think about Archmage Ascension since then you can tutor for ANYTHING once you've drawn enough.
