Stone Rain Discussion

In Jhoira's deck, I would like to see Suffocating Blast reprinted, since it never has been, thus far. Also, Counterflux, Double Negative, Electrolyze, and Prophetic Bolt would all be nice, because they are all very awesome cards that woudl work well with her.
I imagine that Lovisa's deck shall contain plenty of warriors, barbarians, and berserkers, so Berserkers of Blood Ridge would make perfect sense, as would Raging Goblin and Goblin Striker. It also would be nice to see Lightning Bolt or Stone Rain reprinted, since they have not been reprinted in some time, as well.

If you are shooting for the long run, one of the best expensive cards you could play would be Blood Moon, as blue moon can have outstanding success, but on to what you asked for.
In my opinion, Spell Pierce would be more of a sideboard card, since leak hits everything and is more adaptable every match, however, Izzet charm or maybe Remand (more money I know) might also work for you, depending on what you need it for.
Personally, I wouldn't play either, as by the time you overload mortars you are likely dead anyway, and Roast is just mortars plus 1 (not really relevant in the modern format, only lets you kill a Siege Rhino as opposed to mortars) What you really want is Flame Slash, it's dirt cheap sorcery speed removal for a mana less then what you are currently looking at. Bolt is a multipurpose card that lets you hit the player, planeswalkers, or creatures.
Personally I'd play Shivan Reef over the tap lands, as you really want to avoid being off curve in a midrange build.

Looking at the list I would recommend replacing Mana Leak with Remand because Mana Leak is decent in the early game but in the late game it becomes much easier to play around. Remand on the other hand fits the tempo style of this deck much better and often feels like a Time Walk in the early game. Next I would drop the Favorable Winds for Serum Visions. Favorable Winds is just to slow for this deck and doesn't do enough, Serum Visions on the other hand can greatly fix you draws ensuring your tempo deck performs as a tempo deck.
Also some cards to consider as you develop your deck:--Stony Silence--Silence--Render Silent--Turn Aside--Faerie Conclave--Celestial Colonnade--Cavern of Souls--Ghost Quarter--Glacial Fortress--Mutavault--Mystic Gate--Nimbus Maze--Sphinx's Revelation--Azorius Charm--Snapcaster Mage--Pithing Needle
Some Cards you want to look out for:--Chalice of the Void--Supreme Verdict--Torpor Orb--Anger of the Gods--Essence Scatter--Molten Rain--Stone Rain--Path to Exile--Lightning Bolt--Snapcaster Mage--Engineered Explosives--General RDW, Goblins and 40 Bolt
That's everything off the top of my head, hope it helps.

Contrary to what has been said earlier. There was a modern land distruction deck that did decently at tournaments except it was red green instead (i'll throw a link at the end of this comment). The gameplan is to cast a turn one mana accelerant like Arbor Elf into a turn two Stone Rain. The list ran 10 ways to destroy lands and 4 blood moons main board.
There's also a weird interaction between Goblin Dark-Dwellers and Boom/Bust. When you cast the goblins you are allowed to target the split card boom/bust because boom has cmc 3 or less. However due the way the rules work with split cards it is specified that when you cast a split card like boom/bust you choose what mode you want upon cast. As a result you can cast bust for free when the goblins enter.
Also to clarify an earlier misconception, here is one of the 3 rulings on Blood Moon listed on it's oracle page: "Blood Moons effect doesnt affect supertypes and wont turn any land into a basic land." Ruination isn't modern legal but wanted to make sure you were aware how it worked
Here's the link. It's written by a professional player who saw the deck and decided to give it a shot. He walks through the different cards in it and what various match-ups are like.

Cool deck +1 But I have some suggestions
I would try to add either Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, or some combination of the two, as while your deck looks like it would have stellar matchups against creature based decks, a deck like Scapechift or Ad Nauseum would combo right over you.
Why Stromkirk Captain? I get that he has synergy with the vampires you play, but most of them are powerhouses by themselves, personally I'd cut them for something like Pia and Kiran Nalaar or bigger creatures like Batterskull, but your build.
If you have the budget I'd suggest Liliana of the Veil, or Liliana, the Last Hope, and/or Chandra, Torch of Defiance, as they are all powerhouse cards that can win games by themselves. Blood Moon is another option to make a deck like this have a more competitive edge.
Add more lands, 20 lands including fetches isn't that spectacular at getting you to 4 drops every single game, I'd increase the count in order to increase consistency.
Collective Brutality: This card gives you the edge against a decka like burn, and is sort of a toolbox piece for ripping apart a lot of decks in the current meta. Kolaghan's Command & Rakdos Charm are also kind of "toolbox" pieces as they have many helpful effects.
I'd find some room for Faithless Looting, as you have no real card draw, many Rakdos decks fall flat on their faces without it.

You can add Detritivore maybe to kill some lands every turn in an uncounterable way. Mind Stone can ramp up nicely. Crumble to Dust maindeck can also be nice. Mwonvuli Acid-Moss is nice to help you ramp a bit also.
Dead/Gone is nice also, because sometimes the opponent is able to get one creature through and you end up in trouble... so you can bounce it back and he'll be unable to cast it again for some time. Anger of the Gods is also a nice thing because some aggro decks are too fast for Land Destruction to disrupt them soon enough, then an Anger can simply kill their whole board. If you like Anger of the Gods, the best way of ramping might be through Utopia Sprawl/Fertile Ground/Overgrowth or Mind stone like I said earlier.
There's one troublesome card people always forget: Shivan Wumpus. It was a pain back in 2014. Anyways... take care and good luck.
