So, I have a few ideas we could hash out for this deck, and I included a bunch of cards that I'll just give you, as well as a few cards you should pick up and plan to use, regardless. We can sit down and actually hash this out together if you'd like, or you can wing it and develop something on your own. Either way, I'm stoked you're getting so into this!

The cycle of uncommon ETBT lands from OGW and SOI have all been downshifted to Common as of Amonkhet. Meandering River, Submerged Boneyard, Cinder Barrens, Timber Gorge, Tranquil Expanse, Forsaken Sanctuary, Highland Lake, Foul Orchard, Stone Quarry, and Woodland Stream.

Yeah, this needs to be cut down to 60 cards. I'd cut down to one or two Thalia's Lancers or not play them at all. As fun as it would be to meld Bruna and Gisela, Bruna, the Fading Light is too much mana for modern, so I'd cut her. I'd cut two Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and put the other two in the sideboard to bring in against affinity, merfolk, and zoo decks. I'd also move two Anguished Unmaking to the sideboard and only main of them. I'd cut Forsaken Sanctuary since it's pretty bad in modern due to there being better options. (i know black/white control in standard used to play them, and it seems you've just converted that into a modern deck..which is fine provided you change it up more) Either cut all of the Dark Petitions or cut down to just one. I'd cut down to 2 Languish (or if the budget is not an issue, than replace them with 2 Damnation instead.

Because your CMC is pretty low, I would recommend dropping one or two lands-- probably Orzhov Guildgate and Forsaken Sanctuary. As for non-lands, maybe drop Sun Titan and/or True Conviction? Otherwise, looks pretty good.

Well, you can remove Fatal Push and use something like Dead Weight as that's the poor man's Fatal Push. Most of what you can remove with Push, Dead Weight can probably hit as well. You can remove Rhonas the Indomitable and Gideon of the Trials pretty easily and replace them with really anything you like that fits the scheme. I used to just run 4 copies of God-Pharaoh's Faithful in their place because you can drop your counters from Channeler Initiate or Exemplar of Strength. You can add Crocodile of the Crossing in as well.
The majority of the cost comes from Concealed Courtyard and Blooming Marsh which can be replaced with Foul Orchard or Forsaken Sanctuary if you want super budget, but they won't be anywhere near as good. Good lands are some of the first things I would recommend buying in a format, especially since these ones won't rotate until the end of 2018. Both of the lands are also used quite frequently in Modern, so they're a two for one.
You could also probably go down a few Solemnity if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend that at all. They're pretty cheap as is.

About cats, it seems like Wizards was thinking about a quirky choice and decided "cats XD". It isn't really daring or funny. It just comes across as wasteful. Just think, we could've had a angel, zombie, or werewolf commander in good colors that actually supported the tribe, but instead they pick cats.
In any case, I feel as though the last tribe is giving off a kind of Innistrad vibe. It reminds me of Lunar Mystic. It also makes me think that it could be the person referenced in the flavor text of some cards like Forsaken Sanctuary - the leader of some crazy cultists or something.
One thing is almost guaranteed - no DFCs. The printing process is different and not easy to incorporate, so only dedicated sets (Innistrad, FTV transform, etc.) are really worth it. We might still get a werewolf commander (though it seems very unlikely), but we are almost certainly not getting a Bloodline Keeper in the vampire deck, and it's probably going to spike in price as a result.

Honestly I forgot about one little piece I love for Servo decks that was the most fun I had playing mine, and that's Hidden Stockpile. Granted, you would have to splash a little black but that could even be fixed with just 4 Forsaken Sanctuary or something. Having multiple of them out can get pretty crazy pretty quickly. Other than that, I still think the fact that Animation Module only synergizes with two copies of Glint-Sleeve Artisan is a bit of a waste, but overall I would give this deck my seal of approval, for whatever that is worth. I was under the immediate impression that you would be using this at like Friday Night Magic or some such occasion, so yeah I agree that you really shouldn't worry about SB when just playing casually.
