Hello! I appreciate the effort put in to make a cheap Infect deck. Just a couple things I see wrong here:
Why aren't you running Become Immense? Infect has enough spells to delve away to it that it's worth the slot in the mainboard.
What's up with Thornweald Archer in the sideboard? and Tower Defense? why not have 4 copies of Plummet in the sideboard and a couple Natural State's, and when you get the money, Grafdigger's Cage? Thornweald Archer still won't kill indestructible creatures, and neither will Plummet, except Plummet doesn't have to wait for the flier to attack.
What's Whispersilk Cloak doing? In my opinion, it's far too clunky for modern or just for infect in general. You have to wait until turn 3 to cast it, then wait until turn 4 to equip it just to give your guy shroud and unblockable. I definitely see the appeal, but it could be better replaced by something like Surgical Extraction (when you get money), Dismember for certain matchups and seeing as you have no removal. If you have an extra creature or two, even Paradise Mantle would be good. Really, you'll need more removal and counters in the sideboard if you want to have good matchups.
Hope this helps!

Unbridled Growth and a Fatal Push needs to go for 2x Roast and 2x Kolaghan's Command. Remove Attune with Aether and a land for 2x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and 2x Aethersphere Harvester. I personally never liked Sylvan Advocate, I'd rather run Tireless Tracker or Warden of the First Tree. In this deck I'd go for the tracker as the clue tokens proc revolt and ally decks naturally have a lot of fetches. Hissing Quagmire isn't really a good land. I'd also remove Treasure Keeper for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.
As for your sideboard, you need flying hate. 2x Tears of Valakut and 1x Plummet. 2x Reclamation Sage for enchantments, 2x Tormod's Crypt for graveyard, 2x Duress for control, 2x Virulent Plague for that new Saheeli Rai infinite combo, 2x Circle of Flame and 2x Feed the Clan for aggro.

I feel that the Tireless Trackers don't do much in your land-light deck. It requires you drawing a fourth land(third with Servant), or otherwise it is just a 3/2 for three. Cracking Clues is a two-mana invest that doesn't immediately effect the board much, and slows you down.. With Servant of the Conduit, Chandra, Torch of Defiance and only two cards that cost above 4 mana(and a high concentration of two-mana cards), you may be able to get away with a lower land count. Tireless Tracker should be cut-perhaps substituting Lathnu Hellion. In addition, you are already playing blue, so why not some of blue's great sideboard cards? Against Marvel, Ceremonious Rejection is amazing for the cheap cost. Plummet, on the other hand, is a dead draw against a board state with no opposing flyers. You are weak to high-toughness flyers, but you aren't that desperate. Nine removal spells isn't much, but if you are worried about vehicles getting through, than Galvanic Bombardment should shore you up with 8 instant-speed removal spells. If you are really worried about flyers in general, Empyreal Voyager can help both generate energy and serve as a blocker. I would also max out on your Bristling Hydra, and cut the Gearhulk- you want everything to syngerize with your energy plan, and the Gearhulk, while being an efficient beater, does not do that. Perhaps Glimmer of Genius, while a bit slow, could replace Tireless Tracker as your card-draw of choice? Ultimately it is less of a mana investment, offers more card selection, and provides energy.

I'd probably replace 4x Mountain with something like Looming Spires. An addition or alternate to Spreading Flames would be Serpentine Spike which deal more overall damage to creatures; Good for various wipes. Outnumber is a good option if you get creatures out fast. Tears of Valakut is another way to deal with a flying creature. It hits hard enough to take out most flying, there's also Aim High for defending after you attack or you could go straight up with Plummet. If you need something to deal with big creatures, Moonlight Hunt is a good swarming card. Deranged Whelp is good fodder for rushes as it removes an extra defender or just does two straight. If you want to make your opponent really think about what they want to do Rot Wolf is a fun card. Finally Wolfir Silverheart is essentially an 8/8 and boosts another card by 4/4.Wolfir Silverheart

YAY Baloth Pup actually has a reason to exist now. Anyhow, down to suggestions. I would consider dropping some Baloths for chump blockers early game. I personally think that Arachnogenesis would be fun! Second of all, for card draw Explore and for more boosts -- Giant Growth. I like the flying punishment, but you might consider moving that to the sideboard, as well as adding Plummet to the sideboard. In fact, you almost have TOO MUCH flying hate. What, with 12 cards in the sideboard and mainboard combined. That's a fifth of your deck! Love it, and an upvote from me.

To trigger Tireless Tracker, a bit more of this type of card may help:
Byway Courier gives you another way to get a Clue, and have a blocker.
Root Out would be great in your Sideboard.
All of those cards will help you Ramp, and cast your Eldrazi faster, if you can't cheat them on to the field.
You also need to have some removal.

Warping Wail is decent. Good against board wipes or disruption effects like Transgress the Mind. Plummet isn't bad, but it doesn't hit Emrakul, the Promised End which is huge in my local meta right now.
