also, you probably want to get your creatures a bit closer to 21-22, cut back on a Negate, and one or two Gate to the Afterlife. If yo have no creatures in the yard, this deck is not doing what it wants to do.

This does OK, but it could be tweaked a lot more.
I would make these changes:
I don't like Auras like Tricks of the Trade. If an Opponent destroys the Creature it is attached to then they have spent ONE card to get rid of TWO of yours. I would rather see -2x Tricks of the Trade +2x Essence Scatter.
You need a full Sideboard if you are going to play this at FNM.
I would make it look something like this:
4x Authority of the Consuls - to shut down aggro decks
2x Cancel - extra because it is so versatile
2x Cast Out - extra Planeswalker removal
2x Farm / Market - the two modes on this make it very useful
2x Immolating Glare - cheap and versatile removal
3x Skywhaler's Shot - extra Creature removal for big threats
Just so you know, Ice Over doesn't tap the Creature it is attached to, so the Opponent can just leave it untapped and use it as a blocker.

As a joke really I'm planning on running Temur Slither Blade pseudo-infect, basically Slither Blade and Bloodlust Inciter and Thorned Moloch with a bunch of buff spells, should be interesting to see if I can sneak a win in :p

Feels good being summoned. My nose is still itching a little, but besides this... ;)
I actually like the deck, but i get what you're saying. Somethings just weird about no tribal nagae (still fighting with the correct plural). Let's hope for something on ixalan.
I recently build a weird 'eternal weenie' style deck that uses creatures with power two or less to generate value from dusk/dawn and wants to finish the game with the eternals produced from Hour of Eternity and Gift of the God Pharaoh. As Slither Blade is my main wincon there, it could work for you as well. Two 4/4slitherblades for 7 is a pretty big hit.
A little paragraph on nagae: i once read on mtggoldfish about the satyrs of theros being somewhat both elfs and goblins of the block. I do have a similar feeling of nagae being both elfs and merfolk. But merfolk without lords don't do much. Maybe these guys will become totally insane once the correct lord gets printed.

Just the Illusory Ambusher in the sideboard is not worth it to justify this being a Legacy deck. It is otherwise Modern legal. Also, Krovikan Mist is a very big 2-mana flier. It is definitely worth it. Lastly, Slither Blade does not fit with the deck's plan. Cutting Slither Blade for Krovikan Mist will help your deck a lot.
