Thanks for the suggestions Darth_Savage
I'll change the lands, but unfortunately Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be a bit out of budget. I thought about including Figure of Destiny as one drop, but I wasn't sure if I'd be throwing too much mana on his habilities instead of playing more spells to keep triggering Battlegate Mimic, I think it's stronger than what it looks at first glance. Anyways I could ignore the mimic and add instead the Honored Crop-Captain and Figure of Destiny. Thank you dude.

Conventional wisdom says that lands that come into play tapped like Wind-Scarred Crag and Temple of Triumph are not what you want in modern because of the loss of tempo. To improve things a little replace the Wind-Scarred Crag with Clifftop Retreat, then if you have the budget replace two of the Temple of Triumph with two Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, this should help your mana base a fair bit.
Your also lacking one drops, so often you will be doing nothing turn one, that's ok but you need to know it is a weakness of your deck. If you weren't aiming to have everything by red/white I'd suggest Signal Pest, since you are I'm not sure what to suggest outside of Figure of Destiny, which will eat removal, but might be an option.
I hope that's of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Well there are certain questions you need to ask yourself:
How do I want to balance goodstuff and aggro
Do I want a card, that can hit for 3 this turn or a card that hits for 6 the following turns?
At what cmc do certain effects matter the most?
eg. Gaddock Teeg is a great card on its own, but is this effect really relevant when try to close the game out before t6, or does his low attack hurt us more. Does this deck even need removal or swords? Every removal or high cmc card has the risk to be dead in our hand.
I have played a similar deck with Iroas, God of Victory as commander, and I thought that removal doesn't matter because my opponents can't take advantage from enchantments and artifacts, because they die without playing blockers. What mattered was that I have consistently a grip full of one, two, and three drops that attack.(I had a human subtheme with Champion of the Parish,Thalia's Lieutenant,Honored Crop-Captain and alike.)
I can't really say what to cut, because neither do I know how all in you want to be (and I can't decide that for you), nor do I know your playgroup.

Just remembered that you might like Kari Zev, Skyship Raider in this deck build. Reasoning is that you can stack your triggers between her and Honored Crop-Captain to get the monkey token the extra plus as well like what you can do with the Tilonalli's Summoner. The monkey token also counts towards your Ascend count in the battle step in case you end out needing to push for that one more permanent.
If you want to make room for her I would personally cut copies of Djeru's Resolve to make the room. Since she is legendary I would run maybe two copies (3 at most). I understand what the card Djeru's Resolve does for your deck, but I think its your weakest card at the moment besides Crash Through.
Another card you may want to consider is Baffling End as the card is a cheap early removal card and stays on board to add to your Ascend count.
Glad you liked the earlier suggestions. Hope these ones might be useful as well.

If you're planning to curve out at 2, you should cut lands to reduce the number of dead topdecks. I also think your creature count is a bit low; Honored Crop-Captain is a pretty good choice.

Seconding the thoughts that the deck right now is too all over the place. The cards I'd include as full playsets are:
- Glory-Bound Initiate
- Honored Crop-Captain
- Lightning Strike (you don't have them now, but you should)
- Gust Walker
- Ahn-Crop Crasher
- Cartouche of Solidarity (I like this better than the other one)
And then some number of:
- Oketra's Monument (really sweet in aggressive decks)
- Bloodlust Inciter
- Combat Celebrant
- Devoted Crop-Mate
- And not to forget your Gideons.
Hope this helps!

I'm going to attempt to fix my sideboard to represent what I would actually use.
Let me know what you think once I fix the deck.
