Look into Weapon Surge and Teleportal, I run them in my Jeskai it is beyond ridiculous. Also, Bloodfire Experts are amazing for what they do, as are Jeskai Windscouts. I run 4 Weapon Surges, 4 Teleportals and 2 Flying Crane Techniques, and that's enough for what buffs go. Other than that, Jeskai Ascendancy a few times, some burn if needed, and you're pretty much done. Also - Mantis Rider is a crazy card.

If you are already running Distortion Strike, should run 4 of and cut Teleportal. It is tempting to run it because of its overload, but to make it efficient requires a few electromancers on the field... not ideal. Distortion Strike is strictly better than Teleportal in this case because it has less mana requirements AND gets you two casts off of one. If Nivix Cyclops is on the field already, you basically won.
My other suggestion for redundancy is Artful Dodge. Although it does not pump, the fact that you can cast twice within a turn is enough (Triggers cyclops twice and makes two things unblockable).
Have yourself a fun deck here. Feel free to check out what I run in ALL SYSTEMS NOMINAL if you are interested to see how those suggestions run =]

I don't think Battlefield Thaumaturge and Goblin Electromancer add much value to this deck, really. Most of your spells have no colorless mana on their casting costs, and it's not like you'll be using Strive and Overload that often, as most of your creatures are 3-drops.
I also question some of the buff choices in here. Distortion Strike makes it pointless to run Teleportal, and I'd rather run Aqueous Form instead of either of them - it won't trigger your Cyclops, but coupled with Hidden Strings it guarantees 2 free mana and a scry every turn, which makes a huge, HUGE difference in Modern matches. Even better, use Invisible Stalker or Slippery Bogle - the latter can kick off your mana ramp as soon as turn 2, while the former guarantees you'll be untapping Islands for the rest of the game, unless someone Drown in Sorrows his ass.
Another point that could be improved: counterspells. Kiora's Dismissal is terrible and doesn't interact with your cost-lowering creatures in any way. Voyage's End is too costly for what it does. Void Snare is better than both, as it can bounce anything other than lands. Also, since you're using Hidden Strings for mana ramp, have lots of 2 CMC counterspells like Negate and Mana Leak for added control. And Mizzium Skin to hexproof everyone at instant speed.
Lastly, you're probably aware of this, but I'm going to stress it anyway: Izzet Guildgate will DESTROY your tempo. Play it on T1, no Bogle/Blistercoil Weird until T2; play it on T2, no Hidden Strings until T3; play it on T3, no Nivix Cyclops until T4; and so on. Even if you can't afford Steam Vents, Shivan Reef or Sulfur Falls, take away those Gates. They're just not worth the slots.

Ok first of all if this thread insults anyone im srry. These color combinations are mostly based on stereotypes.
Christianity - Orzhov
Why: First i was thinking that this should be white because of obvious reference cards like Wrath of God and Crusade. But i feel like Christianity tries to look like mono-white but deep down inside its more white black.
Cards: For commander i was thinking that Selenia, Dark Angel could fit well. Other cards i might include are: several angels, several clerics, Greed, False Prophet, Damnation, Chapel Geist, Preacher, Orzhova, the Church of Deals, Temple of the False God, Divine Light, Wrath of God, Angelic Armaments, Bonds of Faith, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Cho-Manno, Revolutionary (This would be Jesus), Brilliant Halo, Call To Serve, Crusade, Angel of Despair, Public Execution, Mortify Demonic Torment, Retribution of the Meek, Divine Intervention, Elite Inquisitor, Rule of Law, Miraculous Recovery, Heliod, God of the Sun, Day of Judgment and Venser's Journal (Holy Bible).
Islam - Boros
Why: White because Islam is much like christianity and red because some people for some reason seem to think that Islam = Terrorists and as i told you before these are based around stereotypes.
Cards: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran could be the commander. Other cards could be False Prophet, Crusade, Wrath of God, Artillerize, boros colored soldiers, several cards from Arabian Nights, several angels, Faith's Reward, Divine Intervention, Miraculous Recovery, Rule of Law and Temple of the False God.
Satanism - Rakdos
Why: R/B is full of demons and devils so it fits perfectly.
Cards: Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch or Boris Devilboon both seem to fit as commanders. Exava is however a bit better card than Boris so i think im going for her. Other cards would be several witches, demons and devils, Greed, Artillerize, Tears of Rage, Dark Ritual, Duress, Bad Moon, several shamans, Tribute to Hunger, Promise of Power, Sign in Blood, Demonic Tutor, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Zombify, Damnation, Hellfire, Do or Die, Rise from the Grave, Burn at the Stake, Temple of the False God, Blood Speaker, Hell's Caretaker and Victimize
Hinduism - Golgari
Why: Hinduism focuses on cycle of life and death. Golgari has the most graveyard focus so it fits nicely.
Cards: Pharika, God of Affliction is the best fit because of its activated ability. It makes a dead creature reincarnate as a snake. Other cards could be Cremate, Reincarnation, Symbiotic Wurm, Golgari Germination, Brindle Shoat, Deadly Grub, Dripping-Tongue Zubera, Flesh Carver, Hooded Hydra, Mitotic Slime, Mongrel Pack, Ogre Slumlord, Elephant Guide, Gutter Grime, Seize the Soul, Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, Temple of the False God, Apprentice Necromancer, Doomed Necromancer, Hell's Caretaker, self-mill cards and Tukatongue Thallid.
Shinto - Selesnya
Why: Green for kami and white for samurais.
Cards: Kei Takahashi as the commander. Other cards would be from kamigawa block mostly.
Atheism - Izzet
Why: I want this to be kind of a science deck and red blue is the best colors for that.
Cards: Jhoira of the Ghitu is the commander because its ability is like putting something in development. Other cards include: Brainstorm, Compulsive Research, Electrolyze, Essence Backlash, Izzet Charm, Overwhelming Intellect, Ral Zarek, Mizzium Transreliquat, Archaeomancer, Mercurial Chemister, Deep Analysis, Epic Experiment, Fabricate, Teleportal, Civilized Scholar Flip, Ludevic's Test Subject Flip, Vivisection, Gitaxian Probe, Shrapnel Blast, Ornithopter, Scuttling Doom Engine, Karn, Silver Golem, Ensoul Artifact, Steam Augury and several constructs.
Any thoughts? Suggestions? I apologize if someone found any of this insulting.

I like this budget take on what is supposed to sound like a Delver deck? In this case your deck looks more like a midrange, since it has more instants than creatures. I suggest you to stick to more aggressive creatures. You could drop -4 Nivix Cyclops for +4 Minotaur Skullcleaver. You could drop -4 Wee Dragonauts for +4 Guttersnipe, and center your deck on burn. Drop the -4 Dispel for +4 Lightning Strike, and -2 Teleportal for +2 Magma Jet.
