This looks pretty nice! Ive got a few suggestions that I think would improve it slightly.
That being said, Ensoul Artifact should be at least a two-of, mostly so you can try to bait control into removing or countering something not crucial to your wincon. It also gets around Fatal Push (not Path to Exile, unfortunately, but youd get a free land at least), a must for a deck that doesnt have anything else that cant be pushed.
In terms of the combo itself, Id add Battered Golem as a two of, replacing some of your other pieces (just for more diversity), and replace Reckless Fireweaver with Altar of the Brood. Altar is simply cheaper, harder to remove, and doesnt require any colored mana.
Also, I think you were into something with Grapeshot. Youve got to pay for it the turn you go off, but its far superior to Molten Nursery in terms of efficiency. Its only two mana, can still be cast for infinite damage, and even cant be countered by most spells, due to storm.
In terms of cards to cut, Accorder's Shield for the Relic, and Izzet Charm for scissors. As previously stated, Reckless Fireweaver should be replaced with Altar of the Brood, and at least three Molten Nursery with Grapeshots.
On a separate note, I like the use of Zephyr Scribe as a combo piece. Dont see that card often.
Thats my two cents, good luck with this deck!

In response to bouncing it, remove the two counters to add two mana of any two different colors to your mana pool. Then, it goes back to your hand. Spend the mana to play it again with two counters.
I imagine a game where you're stuck on two lands: turn 2 Pentad Prism. Turn 3: Reckless Fireweaver. Turn 4: remove a counter to Zephyr Scribe. Turn 5: remove the last counter to Retraction Helix and use your lands pay to cast it for the combo win.
Still not bad.

Wolfrage76: You are indeed running very low on mana rocks, and some of the ones you've got (Sphere of the Suns, Pentad Prism) aren't great choices since once they're out of counters you've got nothing to do but pass them off to another player. Personally I'd aim for cheap stuff (CMC 4 or less) that produces at least 50% of its casting cost on the turn you cast it. Good stuff like Thought Vessel, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, definitely Sol Ring from the maybeboard because it's one of the best mana rocks in the format, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt if you have the budget, Thran Dynamo. Most of those will serve you much, much better than your bouncelands and ETB tapped lands, and make the deck run oh-so-much faster.
Omniscience is good, but very hard to resolve when everyone knows how good it is. Mind's Dilation is fun but unfortunately a little too random. You're probably better off running more acceleration in the form of mana rocks, and being able to cast the things you naturally draw into.

Thanks rothgar13. I like Lightning Greaves for a lot of reasons, but the reasons I like Haunted Cloak (admittedly not the best of cards is the trample and vigilance. Unless I can get out my Akroma's Memorial the colossus can be chump blocked all day and then I can often quickly die on the crack back in Modern. I will need to do some testing with the greaves to see how it plays though. the 0 equip cost is especially enticing. Pentad Prism seems great. I have actually been playtesting a sideboard plan with Herald of Anguish and it would play really well with improvise. Remove a counter for mana and then tap for additional mana. Thanks again!
Thanks IlGuale (I had a terrible time with your name btw. Is it two 'II' or two 'll'? I don't know, it looks the same! Oh wait it is one of each...). Those are certainly very interesting suggestions...I will need to ponder what that would look like in the deck. Could be an interesting transformative sideboard plan. Completely throw off my opponent with a different plan of attack. Thanks again!
