Scry 2, then draw a card. (To scry 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

Nice deck- I enjoy seeing other people playing Commander Unchained. I am fortunate that my playgroup--after some persuasion-- came around to playing with fun cards as well.
A few notes after reviewing the list- Brainstorm, Sensei's Divining Top, Halimar Depths are all great cards, but to truly maximize their strength you need to run more ways to consistently shuffle. It looks like you run Windswept Heath, so you're on the right track, but a Polluted Delta, Arid Mesa, Scalding Tarn, etc would go a long way towards making those spells more reliable. I'm actually not even certain that they're correct in this list: only Terminus and Long-Term Plans seems to have much synergy. A Preordain, Ponder, or even Crystal Ball may just be a better effect. If you do decide to up the shufflers, Jace, the Mind Sculptor probably becomes better than Jace Beleren as well.
Hokori, Dust Drinker and Rising Waters could be upgraded with Static Orb and Relic Barrier. The Orb is weaker in general, but combos with Barrier and Blinkmoth Well to allow you to fully untap while your opponents can't. Similarly, Winter Orb was re-un-re-errated (the only word to describe its messy history) to where if it's tapped, it turns off. This means that it too will work with ways of tapping it to be the only person who gets to have fun.
Anyhow, these are just some ideas after taking a look around. I've been piloting an Arbiter deck for a few years now, and occasionally enjoy checking in on what other people are doing wit him. God bless, and best of luck in your conquests.-McDeity

In most of my fast Izzet decks I use Shivan Reef because I don't have the money to spend on more expensive lands. But like you I only play casually.
You can check out my Izzmatic deck if you want some ideas for counter/burn. It isn't Modern legal but can be by replacing a few cards like Counterspell and Ponder and Preordain. You could also drop the Ral Zarek for some Bedlam Reveler or Cryptic Serpent.
Whatever you decide to build, the sideboard is very important in Modern, something most people don't bother with in casual. And it can be quite expensive with things like Blood Moon.
Either way good luck and Glory to the Firemind!
Edit: everything rothgar13 said is spot on as well!

Preordain and Brainstorm are banned in Modern, unsurprisingly, although Serum Visions is perfectly ok for some reason... I do like decks that try to make unused cards work against high-tier, which is why I like your deck I think (my Happy Mea-ill deck started with that).

Yeah, your probably right, considering I have never seen tidings in any modern deck and I see tons of Brainstorm and Take Inventory, and Preordain in modern which is usually pretty aggro. I'm just trying to make a fun deck that is good for a control oriented player like me

Dimir Signet or other on-color signets
This is the best I have off the top of my head. The multicolored ones add some things, too.
