I drafted on Saturday and my rares were Cavern of Souls, Marsh Flats, got past an Abrupt Decay, and then in my last pack opened a Tarmogoyf. My prize packs also had a Scalding Tarn, Basilisk Collar, and 2 Inquisition of Kozilek. Needless to say I was very satisfied, especially because I never get lucky like that in any type of limited event.
The funniest thing was that my buddy had just bought a box of Japanese Eternal Masters and he had me open up his first pack due to my hot streak...It was a Force of Will.

I'd be a bit hesitant to include Brainstorm here. The reason why the card is so good is you can abuse it with shuffle effects. This is mostly done by fetchlands like Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats etc. It allows you to draw 3 cards and shuffle the 2 worst cards in your hand away. Without shuffle effects, you draw three cards now, but then for the next two turns you don't get to draw anything relevant. I'd either replace some of your lands with fetches or replace the brainstorms for other cantrips.

I've been playing Mardu in modern since before it was a thing which it apparently is now. My deck takes on a substantially different strategy than yours, but we Mardu guys need to stick together, and with that in mind I have some suggestions.
First up, lands. 6 man lands is excessive. You're going to have lands enter tapped far too often. I recommend dropping Needle Spires and one or two Shambling Vent for some more fetch lands. Modern Masters 17 just reprinted Arid Mesa and Marsh Flats, so their prices aren't as ridiculous as when I had to get them.
Like my deck, you use your life total as a resource to generate advantage through Bob and Thoughtseize and recuperate with lifegain, so I vibe with that. Sorin, Solemn Visitor seems like a great fit for your strategy, so I'd consider bumping him up to 2. Liliana of the Veil continues to be the ultimate control planeswalker in Modern and should definitely be a 4-of.
Veteran Motorist seems really lackluster. Pumping your looter scooters is great, but he's completely useless otherwise. The best part about Copter is its undercosted crew ability, and Motorist is overqualified. The earlier mention of Bitterblossom may be worth considering.
Lastly, the sideboard. Ajani Vengeant was my first "core" planeswalker in my deck and I became wholesomely dissatisfied with him. I can't imagine a matchup in which you board him in. Sorin gains you more life and Lily controls better. Crumble to Dust is good, but slow. Consider Fulminator Mage, as he can also crew copters. Hide/Seek is weird, just use Wear / Tear. Liliana, the Last Hope seems okay, but not great. I think Soulfire Grand Master is a mainboard card or not at all present. Tormod's Crypt should be either Leyline of the Void, Rest in Peace or Nihil Spellbomb. RiP is risky with Lingering Souls, but it gets the job done, and against decks like Dredge, the disruption is strong enough to slow your own development down and still win handily. I also absolutely recommend two copies of Slaughter Games to help deal with combo decks. Dreadbore and Falkenrath Aristocrat can probably go.

try to play fetchlands and shocklands. Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills, and Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest, Verdant Catacombs, Scalding Tarn, Marsh Flats, and Arid Mesa. Your shocks are Blood Crypt, Breeding Pool Godless Shrine Hallowed Fountain Overgrown Tomb Sacred Foundry Steam Vents Stomping grounds Temple Garden Watery Grave.

I got Foil and regular Griselbrand and Damnation. Regular Marsh Flats Verdant Catacombs and Scalding Tarn. Foil Stony Silence. Those were the highlights. Also I opened two boxes, so both were a little on the disappointing side, but I never open boxes for value anyway so not worried.
