Sleight of Hand Discussion

You forgot your cantrips to trigger prowess! Serum Visions, Opt, Sleight of Hand. Also it's worth considering 2-3 Spell Pierce to disrupt people playing Anger of the Gods, planeswalkers, Maelstrom Pulse, snapcaster mage into removal spell, etc.
Grim Lavamancer is also amazing.

Is your deck budget? If it is, that would explain the mana base. You should add hubs so people know what you're deck is trying to do, otherwise it's hard to give suggestions. Some general ones I can give you are that you should have more 1 mana cantrips (10 or more in total) like Opt and Sleight of Hand. They give the deck consistency and make Kiln Fiend and Thing in the Ice Flip a lot more powerful. Another thing is that Thing in the Ice Flip and Kiln Fiend are much better than the Cyclops; 12 is generally the limit for creatures in a Delver deck, so I'd cut Cyclops and play all 4 Kiln Fiend and Thing.
Another thing you could do is cut Cyclops and Thing, fill out the playset of Kiln Fiend, and add a playset of Young Pyromancer. It's a really good card in Delver decks, especially with more cantrips. It's also cheaper than Thing in the Ice, if budget is a concern. Most of the reason I suggest this is because Thing in the Ice Flip bounces both Delver of Secrets and Kiln Fiend, which is a pretty annoying anti-synergy.

I do not think there is any merit to maindecking Mana Leak or much less 4 (same for Noxious). Same goes for Grapeshot. With humans as a top deck with 4 Meddling Mages, diversifying your wincons is vital.

I would reccomend taking out the higher mana cards without delve like nixilis, torrential, and grave titan. Although these are good cards, modern plays lots of aggressive low mana removal, so it’s not worth it to play one big creature/planeswalkee for 5-6 mana and have it die the next turn. Instead, I would reccomend something small but worth it, like Delver of Secrets Flip, which is played a lot in modern. Also, Remand, Serum Visions, and Sleight of Hand are good modern draw engines.

Hmm, I think that:
You need more low-to-the-ground prowess creatures. If you're playing a prowess deck, you should pick the best and fill out playsets since you only have a few spots for creatures. Monastery Swiftspear and Stormchaser Mage should be 4-ofs since they're likely the best prowess creatures in modern. I'm personally kind of eh on Soul-scar but he's ok.
You need more 1-mana cantrips. They add a ton of power and explosiveness since you can chain them together in one turn. Most decks like this play at least 10, you already have Opt which is good but there's also Serum Visions, Sleight of Hand, Thought Scour, etc. They'll also let you go down on lands, but you're already pretty low on those so I wouldn't go any further.
You forgot OG Lightning Bolt.
I don't really understand Supreme Will. 3 mana makes it too slow for Modern unless you're playing a dedicated control deck. You're an aggro-tempo deck, so you want your counters to be efficiently costed, like Spell Pierce or Mana Leak. The best counter for these types of decks is Remand, which is often a pseudo-Time Walk (I recommend playing 4).
Judging from your card choices, it seems to me that you're new to modern and haven't really explored much outside of the standard card pool, but if that's the case you did a pretty good job building this deck. You're on the right track, just keep exploring.

You have too many of those one mana spells that give you a little control over what you're drawing. Between Opt, Serum Visions, and Sleight of Hand, you have 10. 1/6 of your deck is just controlling how you draw, which is unnecessary.

zenozia Thanks for the kind words.
I don't feel like Gifts Ungiven is so good in this list. You can't get multiples of same card with it, which sucks for Pyromancer Ascension. 2/2 Split would just be bad with Ascension overall. Pieces of the Puzzle works bit better with the deck and costs one mana less so i go with it. You can sure always try everything.
Search for Azcanta Flip is great when you don't have that explosive start and have to grind trough the game and is even better after sideboarding digging for Blood Moons and such. And you can always discard it for Faithless Looting if you have that explosive start. Its not that bad. But its definitely card that will be the first cut when needed. And don't play 2 Lightning Bolts in main, doesn't really work with Ascension. Better to go up to 4 Sleight of Hands and then play some one of depending on meta. One of Baral, Chief of Compliance could be something for example.

cool concept but was wondering why you didnt go for U/B mill has it is clearly superior? I dont really understand the green splash
add list: Manic Scribe extra mill, Archive Trap extra mill 2, Mesmeric Orb GOOD MILL, Visions of Beyond 1 mana drawn 3 is unfair. maybe go for more control to mill? because in your current list agro destroy you card like Profane Memento are pretty cute but Echoing Truth Spell Pierce and Unsummon are more consistent. To replace Brainstorm go for Serum Visions or Opt or Sleight of Hand for sideboard Natural State is a staple in most green deck Fog could be usefull too
remove list: man.. you love having no maximum hand size lol but seriously Spellbook, Graceful Adept are awfull card, Meloku the Clouded Mirror is 5 mana that's a lot for a 2/4 flyer that bounce your own land
if your interested in a U/B mill deck ub mill
