Remove anything that doesn't say, "you may draw a card when a creature enters" or you might just deck yourself with your all-cheating. Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty, or Life's Legacy could probably draw much better than Elemental Bond. With all the card draw this deck does, some redundancy with maximum hand size helps a lot. Spellbook, Library of Leng, Thought Vessel
I'm thinking a Brass Squire would be a nice inclusion, especially with some of my suggestions, or just because you move a lot of equipment around. Helm of the Host, can let you copy Grothama and have it fight itself for 20 cards drawn.
There are two big glaring weaknesses of this deck: Flyers, and removal. For removal best to worst: Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Karn Liberated, Argentum Armor, Steel Hellkite, Spine of Ish Sah remove anything. Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Bramblecrush, Woodfall Primus can slow down your opponents while building your board.
Never go without graveyard interaction, Tormod's Crypt, Scavenging Ooze, or Relic of Progenitus will put an end to the Spore Frog + Meren of Clan Nel Toth combo, Archaeomancer + Time Warp, and other shenanigans
Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Ulvenwald Hydra are both giant reach creatures that hang back on D. They can fight Grothama and live too, just be sure to Fog so they don't go attacking with 10 damage marked on them. Tornado Elemental, Whirlwind, or Hurricane can deal with your archetypal Angel, Demon, or Dragon, tribal decks. Alternatively, Deadly Recluse or Hornet Queen will make no one want to attack you

Seems ok, some more cantrips like Serum Visions would help a lot for finding Saheeli, since you have Whir you could play some in place of Glint-Nest Crane. Idk if you prefer it for its ability to block, though. Treasure Map Flip looks like it's a bit too slow for Modern, but I've never tried it in a modern deck so I wouldn't know. You might also want to consider playing Relic of Progenitus over Grafdigger's Cage since you can sac it to draw when it isn't useful.
Just keep testing things out and don't be afraid to try things that don't look like they fit, you never know if it could work. As it is now, it looks like it's on the right track, though it may struggle with aggro. I think I'll try making a Liquimetal LD version of your deck today, I'll link you when it's done :)

np. Honestly, I think your manabase can handle the triple U pretty easily. You only actually have two lands that don't produce blue, after all. Artifacts that cantrip, like Prophetic Prism, are ok. Mishra's Bauble is a really good one since it can cantrip and is a 0 mana artifact for Whir, Pentad Prism can ramp and is perfect for Whir as you can use its charge counters and tap it to pay for most of the mana cost on its own. You can also play some sideboard artifact cards in your main, like Grafdigger's Cage or Relic of Progenitus, which could incidentally improve some matchups.
Mana Leak and Remand are more for surviving the first few turns, which comes first. Remand in particular even helps you find the combo by drawing. You usually only play Dispel maindeck if you're playing a combo that can reliably go off early on, like Ad Nauseam. Your combo is three cards so it's less likely to go off as quickly, plus you're in solid control colors, so it's better to drag the game out longer with slower, catch-all counterspells. I'm not saying you need to drop it completely, but you already have 4 Swan Song, which should be enough for combo protection.
Ah, ok. I assumed you didn't really have a budget since it wasn't mentioned in the description, but I probably should've taken a hint from your lands, so mb.

I really love the idea. Found the deck on the reddit post you made, but figured it would be easier to have a discussion on this platform.
Do you reckon that Knight of the Reliquary could have a place in a deck like this? I know people tend to keep on trying to make that card stick in some form of modern deck, but I do believe its place is somewhere in a land-based combo deck. Maybe it is something like this.
Secondly, how has Shalai, Voice of Plenty been working out for you? I find it to be really underwhelming, and I must be honest in that I really don't very much see the appeal of the deck. In the burn matchup it sure is a solid card, but it certainly isn't the end all and be all of storm hate, especially as a 1-of in the sideboard. The main other thing that giving yourself hexproof helps with is targeted discard, and I imagine decks that are heavy in that regard certainly shouldn't struggle removing Shalai, Voice of Plenty from the board. (She even dies to Fatal Push, which is all over the format currently)
I was also hoping to get your input on Prismatic Omen; I have never played with the card and am wondering what exactly the purpose is here? Mainly as an additional midgame value engine to turn landdrops into Lightning Bolt?
(PS: You listed green and red as "Excluded Colors", which is the reason the mana circle thing is entirely white, might want to change that :])

Honestly, this deck was made 2 years ago. I said then that Aether Vial is criminally underplayed. Now, humans is the top deck with 4 vials at the helm and vials are still criminally underplayed.
I have not touched the deck in 2 years. I sold my vials and landbase a year ago, so I cannot rebuild it, but it is the most fun deck I have played in modern. Delay + processors is one of the most powerful things in modern. If I played it now, I would 2 Relic of Progenitus to the main instead of the singleton interlude and reality shift and substitute a flickerwisp for a Spell Queller and have to retool the SB to fit the new modern meta, but it is still a solid deck.
