Hey, cool list! However, your deck is extremely linear, all it does is its own thing with zero ways to defend or disrupt. I don't know how much experience you have with Modern, but against decks like Storm, Affinity or Eldrazi that might not work out - if both decks just do their own thing, theirs is faster and more powerful.
You have a playset Eldritch Evolution in your deck. This means that adding a single copy of a creature to your deck basically plays like having five of them in the deck. Which you can then copy a bunch of times with all of your Clone effects. So, if you have a single Reclamation Sage to find in your maindeck against a deck like Affinity, it massively improves your chances.
What I am trying to say is, in order to make the best use of Eldritch Evolution, you should include a couple of silverbullet creatures to find when you are in trouble (some maindeck, some sideboard). I suggest Reclamation Sage, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scavenging Ooze, Phyrexian Revoker, Sower of Temptation and Profaner of the Dead. Another fantastic option is Thought-Knot Seer, but you would need at least four Yavimaya Coast in the deck so you could cast it when it's in your hand.
I think I would also try and find room for Oath of Nissa and/or Serum Visions in your deck, they help you control your draws to some degree and assemble your combo faster.

These are options from

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant - Tutors on a death touch beater.

Drowned Catacomb - Great land.

Havengul Lich

Living Death

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Tainted Isle

Choked Estuary

Lich Lord of Unx

Forgotten Creation WOW, this card seems great for this deck.

Rhystic Study - Please don't.


Stoneforge Masterwork - I think you would get more value from a Zombie Lord.

Profaner of the Dead - This card seems out of place. What are you looking for this card to do?

Smuggler's Copter - There are simple and better ways to filter/draw.

Bone Splinters - There is better spot removal. Never

Drunau Corpse Trawler - Lack luster.

Siren of the Silent Song - A potential cut.

This is a very cool deck, I like :)

Have you ever considered Profaner of the Dead for this? It would do quite a lot for you I think.

@Iron_Cube: Yeah, I just thought that there is enough synergy so that being a wizard might be enough. Of course there are better additions.

Inundate looks nice and if I decide to make room for another sweeper this will go in! (It's only sorcery speed though...) Almost forgot about Fatespinner - definitely need to find some space for this cutie. Profaner of the Dead seems kind of meh to me. Most of my creatures have low power and are therefore bad targets to exploit.
