I would definitely go back up to 4x Thing in the Ice over Omenspeaker, especially because you don't have any creature removal whatsoever. I don't like Omenspeaker because it's a bad threat that doesn't fuel your Serpent or flip Thing, and gets sent back to your hand if you do flip Thing. I would just run card draw in that slot instead, it'll speed up your win conditions. If you want to be running Cryptic Serpent, the faster you fill your graveyard the better. I think that makes Telling Time better, especially considering it gets discounted by Baral. Censor seems pretty bad. It's a bad draw spell or a bad counter-spell put together and I don't think the utility really makes it better. It's worth noting that you only draw a card off of Baral if the spell actually resolves, so if they pay the 1 mana tax, you don't get to draw.
If you find yourself usually wanting more draw, playing a couple Thought Scour early will get you a turn 3 Cryptic Serpent. Divination also isn't a very strong card in Modern. If you want to filter through cards, Ideas Unbound could also help your Cryptic Serpent a bit more. Sleight of Hand is probably the next best blue cantrip after Serum Visions.
Splashing red and/or white adds a ton to this kind of deck but I get the feelin' you don't want to buy expensive lands :).
If you do want to experiment, red will bring you Enigma Drake, Manamorphose, Faithless Looting, Kiln Fiend+Temur Battle Rage, Lightning Bolt, Bedlam Reveler (which doesn't get sent to your hand by Thing, cuts down Serpent cost considerably, and refills your hand), Blood Moon, Izzet Charm, and the Pyromancer Ascension angle. A lot of those cards are pretty affordable with the exception of Blood Moon and maybe Manamorphose.
White will bring you Path to Exile, Supreme Verdict, and Myth Realized (which I'm a big fan of because you can activate it after flipping a Thing and usually swing for ~13 damage). If you do Blue+Red+White, you're open to Pyromancer Ascension which benefits from having a big graveyard and lets you get crazy value out of stuff like Boros Charm and Lightning Helix.
I love Thing in the Ice decks, played one for a while. Hope my insight was useful to you, gl :)

I love this! but if you want to keep the creatureless theme you need some more burn/draw cards likeBloodchief Ascension , Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction , Liliana's Caress , Pyromancer Ascension, Trespasser's Curse, Vessel of Malignity ,Waste Not Everlasting Torment, (MAYBE (prob not) Imminent Doom)),Megrim, Necrogen Mists, Phyrexian ArenaUnderworld Dreams , Endless Whispers, Leyline of the Void, Magmatic Core, Spiteful Visions, Torment of Scarabs, Exquisite Blood, Gibbering Descent ,or if creatures are ok here are a couple ideas Genju of the Spires ,Satyr Firedancer , Hammer of Purphoros, Awaken the Ancient

KjartanI tried to use less lands, but then I had a mana shortage. Maybe that was a coincidence but this is what I experienced in many plays.
I have Zada in my deck, because you can easily have too less cards in your hand while playing. But I think I can solve that problem with cards like Pyromancer Ascension

High Tide, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Past in Flames, Pyromancer Ascension, Stroke of Genius and any form of counterspell probably all get an insta include in this deck. There are also a plethora more synergistic creatures for Izzet Spells which you may want to look at, such as Delver of Secrets Flip, Spellheart Chimera, maybe even Treasonous Ogre and many many more.

@LeaPlath I was considering Gitaxian Probe, but I'd need to get rid of four cards, so I'm not sure what to cut. I'm not sure what you mean by "dropping the pointless (because if you've played your entire deck, haven't you won?)." I'm guessing there's a broken link somewhere in there. Lotus Petal is a good idea, though I'm not sure about cutting instants for them because the instants trigger Pyromancer Ascension. I'll make changes and test them before updating the deck. Thank you for your suggestions. I'll have to look for Commune with Lava in my collection.

Chasm Skulker for you draw mechanic
You should also need something to protect your creatures... at the lack a better alternative a few Negate would do fine. Remand is fine for delay on creatures but they can still play cheap removal even if you Remand

hey there, I like what you are doing here, but I don't understand how do you make Pyromancer Ascension work as you only play each card once.
Good job anyway :)
