Depending on how you want to approach the deck and how much you want to polish a lot can be done to improve your deck. The biggest thing regardless of how competitive you want to take it is taking out cards that don't do anything but look good because they are efficient in standard or something. For instanceFaithbearer Paladin being played on turn 5 when everyone else is setting up a combo or cheating much bigger creatures into play looks pretty meek compared to them. Find cards that immediately seem to create an effect or such a strong effect it's worth it.

Cards I would take out...

Veteran Armorer, Timberland Guide, Primal Druid, Obsessive Skinner, Nightguard Patrol, Kessig Recluse, Intrepid Provisioner, Inspiring Captain, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, Elder Cathar, Byway Courier, Ironwright's Cleansing, Equestrian Skill, Conclave's Blessing, Pollenbright Wings, Fists of Ironwood, True-Faith Censer, Crown of Convergence, Briarbridge Patrol, Grapple with the Past, Leave No Trace, Long Road Home, Wildsize. A lot of cards I know but here come some budget or more expensive replacements...

Expensive options(see if your playgroup is cool with proxies if money is an issue)

Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Containment Priest, Recruiter of the Guard, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Mirari's Wake, Sylvan Library, Earthcraft, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Knight of the Reliquary, Aura Shards, Hero of Bladehold.

Cheap alternatives(though some may be annoying to find from others or stores)

Bruna, the Fading Light, , Mentor of the Meek, Silverblade Paladin, Somberwald Sage, Thalia's Lancers, Swords to Plowshares, Day of Judgment, Werebear, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Mother of Runes, Riders of Gavony, Honor of the Pure, Intangible VirtueFiend Hunter, Goldnight Commander, , Knight of the White Orchid, Aegis of the Gods, Archetype of Courage, Deranged Outcast, Return to Dust, Angel of Jubilation, Tireless Tracker, Bastion Protector, Sun Titan.

Anyways my gawd what a long message hopefully this helps later!

Is Scour from Existence your only way to exile a Hedron Alignment? I would suggest adding Anguished Unmaking, Ironwright's Cleansing or Angelic Purge, they're much quicker and cheaper forms of removal and help with the exiling. I know you can use Diabolic Tutor to find Scour from Existence but that's atleast 2 turns where you haven't affected the board at all.

Declaration in Stone might not be bad either and in this meta maybe sideboard Fragmentize or Ironwright's Cleansing incase you come up on some heavy artifact stuff. Fumigate is good against overwhelming aggro as well.

Scour is probably far too expensive.

Transgress the Mind is the cheapest way to do it in Black or Blue, but with the downside of having to reveal your hand. You can also counter your own spell with Void Shatter to exile it, but that's on the expensive side as well, especially since it uses a spell that would be better used on your opponent but that's true of both of these things.

Adding in White gives you some more options. Angelic Purge, but with a "downside" of having to sacrifice a permanent BUT you could sacrifice another Alignment to get it in to your graveyard. There's also Ironwright's Cleansing.Adding in White AND Red gives you Nahiri, the Harbinger who can get it in to your graveyard AND in to exile with her first and second abilities respectively.

Adding in Green would give you access to World Breaker, which at the same price of Scour gives you a 5/7 body on top of it.

Teknetic on Everything but your kitchen sink Super Control

Just gunna run down the changes I'd make.

Cut 4 Shamble Back, it's narrow and will likely be a dead card most of the time. Cut Graf Harvest, you don't run almost any creatures and giving menace isn't super relevant as a control deck. Cut Mind's Dilation, it's really expensive and there are better finishers. Move Peace of Mind to the side, it's bad outside of aggro match ups. Move Ironwright's Cleansing to the side, bad if they run no artifacts/enchantments so it'll be dead a good chunk of the time. Cut 2 Macabre Waltz, you don't play many creatures so it'll be dead a lot. Cut Slip Through Space, same reasoning as before. Cut Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, you run very few creatures so it'll almost never flip. Cut Odric, Lunarch Marshal, you have literally only one creature that it can share abilities on. Cut Cathar's Shield, you don't have many creatures and there are more powerful things you can do than +0/+3. Land count should probably be closer to 25-26.
