Why use Reach Through Mists? That card is only worth it when you have Peer Through Depths and Sift Through Sands as well, so that you can free-cast The Unspeakable. Use a more competitive spell, like Opt, which is strictly better.

I think Anticipate is better than Peer Through Depths. Less digging, but you can grab Snapcaster or Scapeshift with Anticipate. I think it ends up giving you more options, especially with Search for Azcanta  Flip putting stuff in the graveyard.

Have you thought about putting Anticipate in there as a potential backup for Peer Through Depths?

Advice: Relic of Progenitus is a solid sideboard card. A spicy and underrated sideboard card for storm is Quicken to go off at instant speed. For the mainboard, definitely cut Tormenting Voice and replace it with one mainboard Wipe Away, a Thought Scour or two, and 1-2 Peer Through Depths.

I also run modern storm and I have not been impressed with the opt builds. I recommend a spell that benefits more from baral and goblin eletromancers such as Peer Through Depths

Peer Through Depths is gonna be better than Opt 9 times out of 10, from what I can tell. Also, maybe a 1-of The Unspeakable

lukas96 Cruel puts you up 7 cards on your opponent, causes a 10 life swing and kills something. Approach the first time does very little besides gain you life.

I don't think Approach is a viable win con in Modern, to be honest. The issue is the counters in the format are that much better, the decks that beat face beat that much quicker, and the combos who are doing similar things are that much quicker.

I did use to have 2 Approach in the sideboard of 4c Scapeshift, for a bit of fun. It was pretty easy to churn through the deck as well with Peer Through Depths.

If consistency is a problem, I suggest just adding the rest of the playset of Genesis Wave. If you can make infinite mana, might as well just flip your deck to get the Spawnsire onto the battlefield. By doing that and adding a couple of Spellskite maindeck, you'll be able to get your win-con and protection for it onto the battlefield simultaneously, meaning you can devote more slots to protecting the infinite mana combo and yourself from dying before you get to it. The fact that it's a spell also means it's easier to find with better digging cards, like Peer Through Depths.

Have you considered playing any of the Ravnica bounce lands, like Simic Growth Chamber? Probably not necessary and they suck early on, but it might not hurt too much to have a couple so there's the option of just playing one with an Arbor Elf out and going off that way. They'd basically just be a fifth and sixth copy of Utopia Sprawl that can't get countered.

Also, you have 6 Walking Ballista in your deck. 2 in main and 4 in sb. Cut two of them. and if you want to go with the plan I mentioned above you'll have two open slots for Spellskite.
