I feel like you are going to need a lot more hand disruption to make sure you don't get combo-stomped. You may want to look into some Thoughtseize , Blackmail , Wrench Mind style cards. You could likely get away with dropping some creatures in lieu of these, and perhaps change the Lashwrithe with Runechanter's Pike . The hand disruption should be able to protect your creatures, and stop decks from comboing off perfectly on time. Good start though!
Try to add some removal, you can't counter everything. You don't need Thassa's Emissary you have others nices cards that can give you card advantage, also it don't worth. Since most of your creatures are hard to block you I think you don't need Aqueous Form . If you try to find cheap options try Trepanation Blade like BLEATH says or Runechanter's Pike last one I found it more usefull in a U/R delver or in a izzet (I run it in a izzet and works pretty nice).
I've been working on a very similar deck, except mine doesn't quite have enough ramp, so I'm using yours for inspiration.
Have you thought about cards like Eye of the Storm , Possibility Storm , or Teferi's Realm ? The latter can be used to shut down opponent creatures or artifacts, whereas the first can be used to your advantage as you should have the most instants/sorceries in the game. I also like Bosium Strip and Mnemonic Wall for replaying cards from graveyard.
I've been running mine with cards like Thieves' Auction , Hive Mind , and Conjured Currency for extra shenanigans. I've been using the Spellheart Chimera / Runechanter's Pike + Fling thing as well for extra damage, it might work well in this deck but might not, you do run more artifacts than I do. Leyline of Punishment works really well for my meta; if yours is similar I'd consider it. Speaking of, Leyline of Anticipation is great too.
Easily a cheap build. Here are a few recommendations, though:
Godless Shrine is a must, when/if you can get them.
I would like to see Rise/Fall here. One of the best Red/Black Discard cards there is as far as i'm concerned for modern. You seem to be all over the place with your spells and mana which is going to make playing your deck a little unorganized. Cut out all of those lands and make it simple
3x Arid Mesa
4x Tectonic Edge - this is for manlands so they don't kill you
Fill the rest with basics unless you find the Rix Madi that good.
You also have like 1 creature which is a good creature but it wont save you vs a lot of decks out there. Some sort of creature base would be awesome for you.
Some nice things 8 Rack can use :
Quest for the Nihil Stone - now you have 12 rack!
Skred is a good option since you're running Snow basics. It basically works as path to exile.
If you adjust your land to where I suggest, Blood Moon Becomes a lot easier to use. Hope you find inspiration!
Dutchmen generically speaking, Vampire's Bite has been better than Runechanter's Pike . Sometimes I wish I had Pike (normally when playing against blue based decks), but most of the times Bite is enough and the lifelink thing has saved me a lot of times :)
I'm interested in your Windswept Heath . I have these cards from your wants list. Take a look at my binder and see if you'd like anything else to where we can make something work. Thanks.
