This seems like worse Splinter Twin, combo which is ok, just make sure you follow the same principle: Your deck is really only going to win by comboing out (except in very cornercase scenarios), so you want many copies of your combo cards. Check out this list from 2015: Splinter Twin.

Then come the dig. Sage Owl is quite weak compared to something like Serum Visions. Your lands and tutors seem a little strange, so just some pointers for cards to add: Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, Negate and Dispel are all great counter spells for any combo deck, and cards like Lightning Bolt and Snapcaster Mage belong in almost any deck that can support them. Electrolyze is also very good.

One last note is that Eldrazi Tron is pretty good in this meta, and that deck plays Emrakul, the Aeons Torn sometimes, so finding an alternate win condition for the sideboard other than Altar of the Brood might be a good idea. I've seen March of the Machines work, as you can also use it to shoot down lands with Liquidmetal coating. Spellskite is another effective SB card to consider.

I also advise not to play the Kaldra cycle. It is very weak and easy to remove.

Onyx77,
I know a ton of the top decks have 1x Spell Pierce mainboard and 2x in the side. But I personally prefer using the mainboard slot for hard protection (e.g., Spellskite or another Blossoming Defense) and the sideboard for hard counterspells (e.g., Dispel or even Ceremonious Rejection for some metas).

Either way, draw well!

I use Path to Exile but Spellskite is a good sideboard option.

i haven't played modern in a good while but depending on your meta Dismember and Spellskite are both good sideboard cards I used to run. Spellskite always slowed down infect at just 2 life per Vines of Vastwood.

I'm subscribed to your deck, so if you ever want me to take another look and offer suggestions just drop a comment and I'll see it.

I had forgotten that Hanna can also bring back Spellskite, which is another compelling reason to run her.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that a lot of your mana base comes into play tapped. I didn't find it as bad as I thought it would be thanks to all the artifact mana ramp, but there were definitely times where I drew a tapped land on turn 5-6 and it set my play back by a turn. It's worth keeping track of in your games to see how big an issue it turns out to be for you.

That's true on the protecting the vehicles part. But vehicles are naturally resilient to sorcery speed removal and therefore wraths. If they have maindeck artifact hate, congratulations opponent. I hope we have our Academy Ruins. Post board, we have a lot of additional ways of protecting our vehicles from discard to Spellskite.
