as for Jeskai Student isn't Elusive Spellfist just better in a different color?

Possible Enlightened Ascetic for flavor in side if you see a lot of enchentments.

I really like Stratus Dancer in something like this too. its not really expected. Maybe in side vs slower decks. It's a good monk control card

Jeskai Infiltrator Just looks fun

i think Seeker is just strictly better than Jeskai Student why choose to opt out?

is not including Monastery Mentor a budget call? $11 card can be tough but he is a game changer if unchecked especially with tokens getting prowess too.

DragonFaceEater on Prowess is cool I guess...

For a deck based around noncreature spells, this sure has a lot of creatures in it. Now, I haven't played a prowess deck before, but I feel like you don't need to run every single prowess creature in here, especially cards like Bloodfire Expert, Dragon Bell Monk, Ingenious Skaab, Jeskai Sage, Jeskai Student, Mage-Ring Bully, Sanguinary Mage, Spellweaver Eternal, Umara Entangler, none of which have any significant abilities. To replace these, I'd run some mana ramp, which you have a criminally low amount of (one, in Chandra, Torch of Defiance). You could run Sol Ring, an EDH staple that every deck needs, also Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet, and Boros Signet, and if you want to get rid of your ramp later in the game, Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive, and Dreamstone Hedron will suit your needs. Some other ramp cards that can work really well in your deck are Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, Coldsteel Heart, Corrupted Grafstone, Darksteel Ingot, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Khalni Gem, Primal Amulet  Flip, and Pyromancer's Goggles. Obviously, you souldn't run all of these, but you should definitely consider them. The average commander deck should have around 10 ramp cards, though yours may want a few less, considering it's an aggro-ish deck. Also, Ponder's really good.

Is this a sword or an axe?

I'm building an axetrodinary deck. Lol.

1x Dragon Bell Monk
1x Frost Lynx
1x Harbinger of the Tides
1x Man-o'-War
1x Quickling
1x Two-Headed Cerberus

That is a total of 24 cards. Start by adding 5 lands, any that don't come into play tapped. While you are at it, replace thse CIPT lands you already have with any other.

Overall, you want to lower your mana costs as much as possible. True, the CMC limit is 3, but you should not have any card that is above 2 in your deck, except your commander and few creatures.

Creatures (8):
Monastery Swiftspear
Stormchaser Mage
Niblis of Dusk
Mage-Ring Bully
Umara Entangler
Abbot of Keral Keep
Jeskai Student
Sanguinary Mage

11 cards left. We want to churn through our deck and deal some damage:

Mana Leak
Rush of Adrenaline
Icy Blast
Fatal Frenzy
Renounce the Guilds
Emerge Unscathed
Lightning Bolt
