any deck with graveyard hate Rest in Peace , Grafdigger's Cage , Scavenging Ooze will give you problems. Death's Shadow decks might also give you a problem since they can easily outgrow your damage spells but that makes them very vulnerable to just damage spells to face.
Leyline of Sanctity will slow you down. Eldrazi decks have some big dudes on turn 2/3 that dont die to bolt.
your deck might be to slow to fight tron decks, you need a good aggro creature on one turn 1 or 2.Monastery Swiftspear or Kiln Fiend can help with that but they need evasion to be successful. With only a few creatures in your deck a planeswalker like Liliana of the Veil or Gideon Jura might be hard to remove if not dealt with fast enough. the new Cryptic Serpent might also be very good for his price, same with Bedlam Reveler
couple more things to try and add Serum Visions, Slip Through Space if you decide to add more creatures that dont have flying. Spell Pierce instead of mana leak might be good aswell. Schismotivate should be replaced by Assault Strobe in the main slot. Rift Bolt is less effective with Pyromancer Ascension than Lava Spike since you dont have to wait a turn for it to hit if suspended and casting it for 3 to copy it once is helpful.

Xiar Glad I could help! I'd say you could maybe cut 2 x Censor or 1 x Censor and 1 x Magma Spray for 2 x Slip Through Space, although I'd definitely recommend playtesting with it first as you may find you need the removal more. You could even cut both of the Negate, although that does reduce your creature removal quite a lot.
You've definitely got artifacts covered in your sideboard with By Force, but maybe consider some more creature removal for those match-ups against aggro decks and possibly 2 x Bedlam Reveler for those slower match-ups. Good removal to consider that will enable your prowess and other triggers are Fall of the Titans (cast for its Surge cost) and Fiery Temper if you decide to include a way to discard, like Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion.
If the Amonkhet Gods become a major threat in Standard, I'm also considering sideboarding Burn from Within as that deals with Indestructible creatures. I've also main-decked Sweltering Suns, Fling, and Insult / Injury in my deck, although I'm going to playtest them first as they could turn out to be ineffectual.
Sorry for the ridiculously long answer! If you get the chance, I'd be really interesting to hear your thoughts/suggestions on my deck as well!

I really like your list!
That being said, I think Cryptic Serpent lacks evasion, so my only recommendation would be to potentially include some cheap combat tricks like Slip Through Space or replace him entirely with Mercurial Geists.

I'm not sure Cryptic Serpent is worth while. Sure, he can get out on turn 3 at the earliest if you are lucky, and don't interact with your opponent at all, but he kind of just sits there without any relevant combat abilities. No trample or flying or even prowess. I don't really think he is worth his slots. You could try out Slip Through Space, but I'm not sure that would fix the issue completely. What is nice about your other creatures is their relevance late game. What was nice about Stormchaser Mage was his early threat that worked well on curve. Even when removed, his prowess paved the way for a larger Enigma Drake.
I think Chandra is worth the MB slot.

Why are you only running 2 Glistener Elf? Why 4 Blight Mamba? Why 2 Thrummingbird and Viridian Betrayers at all? Ichorclaw Myr is under a dollar, and its way better than the Bird or betrayers. Also, look at Necropede.
Drop Steady Progress all together dude. 3 mana for a poison counter and a single draw? And thats only if you have poison on your opponent.
Lower the overall mana curve. Too many 2 drops. Infect is about being blazingly fast, not a midgame deck with no tools to fight at all.
1-2 Apostle's Blessing in SB would do you well, too.
These are all budget options.

have you thought about Slip Through Space to continue to just beat the opponent down with thing through ice once they start playing creatures again
