I don't usually do sideboards for my homebrew Pauper Decks as they're more for me and my friend's casual games. But I would definitely fun some Relic of Progenitus, Naturalize, maybe a Doom Blade or two, perhaps more Gurmag Angler or Greater Mossdog you have to be careful though because playing this deck I've learned that if you get too greedy with the graveyard filling you will have nothing but Stinkweed Imp to cast, and they unfortunately make the problem worse. This deck could use some more cards with flashback Gnaw to the Bone could be great for sideboards, or simply just more ways to refill the hand. possibly Grim Discovery or Disentomb. I personally love Macabre Waltz, but it does have a CMC of two. Disentomb can hit two zombies which is perfect for both Putrid Leech and Gurmag Angler.

You need more than 30 lands.
On another note, I like how the militia captain turns into a cult leader... Is Hanweir actually Michigan?

Big Update 21.5.2020: I included the Tidal Bore Combo together with Whispers of the Muse. That makes the 4 landdroppers combo pieces and takes away a lot of pressure from Ghostly Flicker. Plus it balances the power of the Transmute tutors, because searching for cmc2 now gives you Tidal Bore which comboes with a landdropper (plus Sanctuary).
Next I finally made the decision to cut Trinket Mage and Relic. I have cut Relic before but didnt update it here. It felt good and then I asked myself why I am still running Trinket Mage. It really took me some time of testing until I was sure this decision is correct.
Next thing is that I wanna make a list of cards that I have tried out and that got cut somehow. There is 2 lists: First a list of cards that are very interchangeable with cards in the deck. Its just a matter of what you expect from your playgroup. Both powerlevel wise as well as archetype wise. Second there is a list of cards Im definitely sure that do not belong in the deck even it might surprise some people :)

I completely forgot about Grafdigger's Cage's other ability.

Cool deck. I haven't seen aria of flame be used very much, so its cool that somebody is making a deck out of it.
I have a few suggestions for this deck. The Magic Mirror seems like an interesting addition, but I don't think having two would be good since the artifact is legendary and at the best costs 3 blue mana.
Shock is pretty terrible in modern (no offense), I would put in more cantrips such as Serum Visions or 1 mana counters like Spell Snare and Spell Pierce. However, don't put too much of the 1 mana counters since they can only be used in certain situations.
Snapcaster Mage is absolutely necessary in a deliver deck. I would recommend putting 4 copies in.
Maybe 1 Magmatic Sinkhole for some premium removal?
For the sideboard 4 Dispel is wayyyy too much. Take out 1 or 2 Dispel and add Ceremonious Rejection. This will help you deal with a little bit of tron and artifact decks.Reality Shift is okay but something like Aether Gust would be better. One Ashiok, Dream Render and two Relic of Progenitus is needed for graveyard hate.

I am running Tormod's Crypt, alongside Relic of Progenitus, Crook of Condemnation, Silent Gravestone, and Scavenger Grounds, but your point is valid and highlights why I am running quite a few gravehate options. Filling graveyards is often what people are trying to do, and in case someone is running some sort of graveyard recursion or, heaven forbid, something that shuffles their graveyard into their library, my strategy can be ruined quickly. Every time a new graveyard removal artifact comes out I consider it.
Thanks for the comment! I'll take a look at your Arixmethes deck.

Yeah against the top of the meta I think you will have quite a bit of trouble unfortunately. Though this doesn't mean there isn't any potential here. You could move more towards mono-green aggro and play cards like Hexdrinker, Strangleroot Geist, and Steel Leaf Champion and the like. While this isn't a very competitive deck it tends to be very fast and can steal games. Similarly with mono-red aggro with a devotion twist built around Fanatic of Mogis which is a cheap deck to start with but not very competitive. I could also see you moving towards G/R Ponza and being that Blood Moon deck which is just good enough to win games by itself.
Where I see the most potential however is pivoting towards G/R Eldrazi in modern. Here is an example list G/R Eldrazi Optimal. Now, yes this is over budget by quite a bit but we can cut the price and build up to something more optimal over time. On that list the only semi-pricy cards that I would call necessary are Karplusan Forest, Eldrazi Temple, and Thought-Knot Seer. Pretty much everything else that commands a high price can be neglected for now in favor of budget options while the deck evolves. Noble Hierarch can become Elvish Mystic for example, and while nowhere near as good, the deck still functions. Similarly, you don't need to go investing in Cavern of Souls, you can play Unclaimed Territory and while not getting the best part of the effect you still can make colorless mana this way. You can skip most of the dual lands, again while not optimal there are cheaper alternatives in the meantime. I think G/R Eldrazi is also fairly well-positioned right now so there is a plus there. Let me know if you need any help if you choose this route!
As for your current deck, Harmonize, Lightning Greaves, Beast Whisperer are all bad. You can make an argument for one Whisperer but even then that is not ideal. None of these cards particularly do much and if you are casting Harmonize in modern with this deck's gameplan you are probably already losing. You really need a 2-drop, if you stay in mono-green, 1 Scavenging Ooze and 4 Strangleroot Geist are decent options. I would personally consider getting into red to play Lightning Bolt and Bonecrusher Giant as you need some kind of removal; you can't expect your opponents to just do nothing, especially in modern. If you stay mono-green though, you basically have to play a couple Dismember in the main or side. You also need a sideboard, I know it is extra money but in modern a lot of the skill is being able to adapt to your opponent. For you, cards like Shapers' Sanctuary, Chameleon Colossus, Grafdigger's Cage, Reclamation Sage, Weather the Storm, and Relic of Progenitus are all good options that shouldn't break the bank when constructing your board. A card like Carnage Tyrant is also good but pricy, Gaea's Revenge is a bit more budget-oriented option.
I hope this helps, welcome back to the crazy world of modern!
