Imprint When Knowledge Pool enters the battlefield, each player exiles the top three cards of his or her library.
Whenever a player casts a spell from his or her hand, that player exiles it. If the player does, he or she may cast another nonland card exiled with Knowledge Pool without paying that card's mana cost.

You may play around Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis 's ability. Tatyova, Benthic Druid will give you extra card draw whenever you get a land on the field. Reliquary Tower is cheap now, and works wonders. You surely will have 5 lands on turn 4, so Temple of the False God is really good.
You should also consider Azorius Chancery , Boros Garrison , Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary , Simic Growth Chamber , Izzet Boilerworks . You play your untapped land for the turn normally, then play one of those with K&T's ability. You get ahead of mana since these lands tap for 2 mana.
I suggest removing Azorius Guildgate , Blossoming Sands , Boros Guildgate , Gruul Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , Simic Guildgate , Tranquil Cove , Vivid Grove , Haunted Fengraf and Unstable Frontier for the lands above.
Do you want to see chaos happen? Hive Mind , Knowledge Pool , Thousand-Year Storm , Eye of the Storm , Shared Fate , Gate to the AEther , Possibility Storm , Ruhan of the Fomori , Perplexing Chimera , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence , Mind's Dilation , Sunbird's Invocation .
Do you want to give more resources to them? Eladamri's Vineyard , Dictate of Karametra , Zhur-Taa Ancient , Heartbeat of Spring , Heartwood Storyteller , Intellectual Offering , Keeper of Progenitus , Well of Ideas , Rites of Flourishing , Ghirapur Orrery . Zendikar Resurgent and Mirari's Wake .

@SakuraStorm I really like that synergy, and thinking about it now it might truly be worth it to draw the lands that come on top instead of having to Urza it... hmm... Any suggestions for cuts?
@ManBearPig2021 Play and Cast are synonyms in this case. I mean in order to play a spell you have to cast it right? The only other way would be to copy it and choose targets for the copy like Knowledge Pool says, but we aren't getting that text. Plus it says "without paying its mana cost" which means that you are casting, if it didn't that line of text would be irrelevant. So I'm not sure why they chose that wording but play is a synonym for cast in some cases.
Back in the day most cards said "play" instead of "cast" and then they irrata'd it to mean "cast," maybe is an homage to older cards out of the beginning of the modern era.

Cool shell so far, but I definitely think it needs more mana ramp. Mayeb 4 more sources of your choice of artifact and land ramp, all probably around the 2-3 CMC slot. Since your deck is light on green I'd go the artifacts that tap for colors like Fellwar Stone , Wayfarer's Bauble , Commander's Sphere , Armillary Sphere , Coalition Relic .
Overall I'd look to knock the curve of the deck down a bit. I find decks start to really hum when they are around 3.5 average CMC. With that said, some of the higher cost plane walkers that aren't doing as much work for you might be Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge , Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage , and Kaya, Bane of the Dead ,
And you can find better board wipes than Decree of Pain . is a tall order.
This deck definitely has all the win cons it needs, just make sure you have the card draw and smooth curve to ensure you get to them consistently.
Looks like fun deck, best of luck!

Make sure to have decent combos to win with your absurd chaos cards too. The cards I have in mind are especially good vs. unfair strategies too.

My old roommate used to run a obnoxious deck containing Eye of the Storm , Grip of Chaos , Hive Mind . Something like that could be fun to disrupt your opponents. Perhaps Knowledge Pool could serve a similar function, along with the aforementioned Omen Machine .

Last night I played the deck at my LGS modern tournament and I went 2/1! 5/8 overall and winner of my LGS! Not bad for my first ever modern deck! Went 2/0 against Teferi, Time Raveler + Knowledge Pool control. 2/1 against Izzet Arclight Phoenix (all very close games). And 1/2 against Ad Nauseam . All 3 of the Ad Nauseam games were pretty close but I lacked the knowledge and skill to close out the win... My opponents made some recommendations which I added to the Maybeboard. If the TappedOut community has any ideas I would be excited to hear about them!
