Hmm, maybe Gideon of the Trials in place of Sorin, Solemn Visitor? Lower CMC, the badge he makes, can neutralize threats, and then turns into his beast mode. You need some man-lands, like Shambling Vent or Creeping Tar Pit, which I would use in place of Vault of the Archangel and maybe a Watery Grave. Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip seems like a bit too far. Maybe drop him for another Mentor and a Push? This deck does look fun though.

Looks good. I have 2 cards to suggest:
My own take on humans goes more for building small humans to sumo-size fatties: Humans +1/+1

I've been pondering Esper Control in modern lately. I like that you cut the visions. In the current state of modern, there is not time to durdle around with serum visions or ancestral vision. I love the mainboard discard. I might cut the white suns zenith for the 4th snapcaster. and perhaps cut 1 logic knot for the 4th discard spell.
Just an idea +1!

Yea that much is true, but there are are a few other factors in play. Bob is really good against decks like Tron or something with Ancestral Vision in it, which is more of a problem for this deck than Burn in the first place. I can always use Bob to chump block a Goblin Guide if need be, or side it out game 2 if I wanted. I also have 4 Shambling Vent and 4 Leyline of Sanctity on the board, but really just the Emperion is enough half the time. Game 1 they aren't going to have any sort of answer so that's a free win right there, and Game 2 they need to actually draw their Destructive Revelry or whatever.
tl:dr there are enough "your life total doesn't matter" matches where Bob is good that it makes up for the "life total does matter" matches, especially because I have Emperion which is really good for the "life total does matter" matches.

If you feel like a big spender:
Snapcaster Mage, Engineered Explosives,Cryptic Command, Search for Azcanta Flip, Collective Brutality, Ancestral Vision, and (If you really want some big cretures) Torrential Gearhulk are all amazing.
And getting a better mana base with more fetchlands:
A couple shock lands:
A few more Fast lands:
And 2-5 man-lands:
Would be great.
As for sideboarding. Don't keep it a hight priority, unless you play tournement magic. But if you run into theese: Get Dispel and Negate, they are cheap and effective. Also Stony Silence, that 1 Authority of the Consuls you currently have main, a couple Eidolon of Rhetoric maybe, Rest in Peace, (Or Grafdigger's Cage is rest's too expensive.) An extra Mass Removal effect, depending on how many you end up running main, and probably 1-2 Disenchant.

BIG gap in your 2 drop slot with far too many cards in the 3 and 4 drop slot. I know Arbor Elf+Sprawl really encourages you to jump past the 2 drop slot but I wouldn't overlook it. Here are some options-
I would drop an Athreos since they are bad in multiples and all the Hierarchs since they are your worst 4 drop. This should drop 7 creatures from the 3 and 4 slot into the 2 slot.
Your mana base looks pretty painful as well with 10 shocks in your deck with fetches. I would try and get that number down to around 4 shocks so that your deck is less painful. Replace some of the shock lands with painless color fixing like Concealed Courtyard, Blooming Marsh, Stirring Wildwood, Shambling Vent, Twilight Mire.
Other good Abzan options

This deck scoops immediately to anything with Leyline of Sanctity. It needs a more diverse selection of threats. I'd recommend manlands. Celestial Colonnade, Shambling Vent, and Creeping Tar Pit are fantastic cards.
