My deck is as follows.

The first thing I noticed when I playtested this is you aren't running enough lands, and some of the ones you've chosen can create some really clunky draws. If you're doing a resource denial strategy based around bounce effects, you can't afford to stumble on mana in the early game, and it's imperative you have on turn 2. I may have just got some bad draws, but many of these cards felt pretty bad to draw in multiples, and the <2 cmc instant count seems really low for scepter to be good. I can see the draw (couldn't help it) of archivist but with such a low creature count it seems like it would just eat a Path or Bolt as soon as it hits the table. Since you're only running 8 actual creatures I feel like there might be more value in just foregoing creatures altogether and giving your opponent some dead cards. Well, they can hit a zombie token, but still that favors you. You can get the same effect from Whispering Madness which you can cipher onto a Creeping Tar Pit for shenanigans, or Dark Deal is similar, cheaper, and curves nicely after a Waste Not. It's been my experience when using any of these Windfall type effects you usually want to have insurance against decking yourself. Also, you probably want at least one basic Swamp because Blood Moon. I'm going to try playtesting it with the following changes: -1 Isochron Scepter, -2 Warped Devotion, -4 Jace's Archivist, -4 Thing in the Ice  Flip -1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth -2 Sunken Ruins -3 Snapback -4 Serum Visions. +4 Darkslick Shores, +2 Creeping Tar Pit, +4 Remand, +4 Darkness, +2 Whispering Madness, +3 AEtherize, +1 Elixir of Immortality +1 Swamp. I'm also considering Wistful Thinking, Talisman of Dominance, and more bounce like Regress and Clutch of the Undercity, but really wish they were more scepter-friendly.

This deck is technically in modern too. I'd playset the Terminates and run Lava Spike and/or Rift Bolt for more burn and Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek for discard. Bloodstained Mire, Blood Crypt, Blackcleave Cliffs, or Sulfurous Springs, and at least 1 Swamp if you run Bloodstained Mire. If you've got the cash (or you're proxying), I'd replace Rakdos Shred-Freak with Bob (Dark Confidant). I personally like Read the Bones, but the card isn't amazing. Another personal favorite that goes with the deck's theme is Fling, and it can push lethal, although if it doesn't push lethal it's bad. Not sure if you have enough dudes for Goblin Wardriver, Goblin Bushwhacker, or Reckless Bushwhacker, or enough spells for Young Pyromancer. Auger Spree isn't that good (although you've got some 5/5s that would live to 9 power, plus a Fling would be 18 damage.

As of right now (based on the cards i have), i tried out the following build and it worked more or less well enough in xMage for me:

T2 Abzan Elves
1x Llanowar Wastes
2x Plains
1x Shambling Vent
2x Hissing Quagmire
3x Holdout Settlement
2x Sea Gate Wreckage
2x Westvale Abbey  Flip
2x Swamp
8x Forest
3x Oath of Nissa
3x Elvish Visionary
3x Dwynen's Elite
4x Beastcaller Savant
4x Sylvan Advocate
3x Cryptolith Rite
2x Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip
2x Eldrazi Displacer
2x Eerie Interlude
2x Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip
4x Shaman of the Pack
2x Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen
4x Sylvan Messenger
T2 Abzan Elves-sideboard
1x Declaration in Stone
4x Transgress the Mind
3x Grasp of Darkness
2x Clip Wings
1x Eerie Interlude
2x Ruinous Path
2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

61 - cause i wasn't able to lift my hand to cut anything else.
Also, i have a TERRIBLE desire to put in singletons of Tajuru Warcaller (very powerful alternate wincon with a lot of triggers), Woodland Bellower (puting this out on turn three proved to be pretty damn bruttal) and Greenwarden of Murasa (for that sweet-sweet possibility of recursive Interlude), but can't find any room for them.

Randsome, If you can't use Collected Company because of the price then I don't think Abzan is the way to go. Instead stick with Golgari and play Sylvan Messenger, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen and Oath of Nissa. Check out Budget Rite Elves for some ideas.

The problem without using Company is Eldrazi Displacer you need ways to find him. He is the reason to use white. Without using Company I see two ways you can go. Using Oath of Nissa or using more Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip or both because both can find Displacer. I haven't yet updated Budget Rite Elves to reflect this Abzan version, but if and when I do these are some of the changes that I will make.

Here is a possible Abzan without Company decklist:

@FAGGOTUS-REX I know. I lie, that's my thing hahaha.

Although I still don't buy the last rack, the deck is pretty well balanced in this particular way. The Rack that's missing could occupy the slot of 1x Sign in Blood or of 1x Swamp
