Hmm I suggest you try get some sort of dual lands, maybe Flooded Strand, Hallowed Fountain, if they are too expensive maybe try get some Glacial Fortress, Prairie Stream or Sejiri Refuge. Add some more card draw aswell, Serum Visions, Think Twice, Telling Time any of these would help a lot. Maybe have a look at some U/W Control builds floating around on tappedout to give you some other suggestions. Anyways hope this helps a bit.

Is Flamekin Harbinger just for Guile? If so, have you found that to be worth doing most of the time? I play Jhoira a lot and one thing that I have found is that it's tough to be as efficient as your opponents. Expensive rocks will achieve this, as well as more extra turn spells. Another route is to go for more deck manipulation. You have Serum Visions and Preordain, but could also go for Brainstorm, Preordain, Fact or Fiction, Impulse, or even Telling Time if you're digging really deep. You can also embrace the long-game and go for tempo effects. My favorites there are Kederekt Leviathan, Wash Out, and Whelming Wave.

@marcprowstealer I took your advice and removed Aeon Chronicler. I think that Blue Sun's Zenith is clunky in the same way, so I've removed that too. I'm never really going to have card advantage with this deck, especially because of all the mass bounce tempo stuff, which always puts me down a card. I figure the more important thing is that I have the cards I need and can protect my priority drops, so Telling Time and Arcane Denial both help achieve this goal better than clunky card advantage.

@marcprowstealer one thing which I've considered replacing Aeon Chronicler with is a lower-tier Brainstorm, like Telling Time or Truth or Tale. They don't quite fill the same role, but they're certainly more versatile and faster.

This deck is sweet, and I may end up trying it. Originally I would do the following edits: -2 Shadow of Doubt, -2 Telling Time, +2 Snapcaster Mage, +1 Spell Snare, but I think ToolmasterOfBrainerd has a valid point. It maybe be much easier for you in a BW shell where you don't have to worry about fetching tricolor + Dark Confidant. I understand blue would be good for protecting the combo and going through the deck to find pieces, but without blue you get access to a strong Ghost Quarter plan and you have plenty of playable cards to add (even if they are just additional copies of Collective Brutality). If you do intend to try out a BW plan it would call for some remodeling, but I think it may be more efficient in the end.

Grixis is one of my favorite color combinations and I think you got a good deck here.
Board Wipes are always needed to play against aggro decks so Languish is a good option
Also I don't see the point of using Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver here so you might take it out too.
Hope it helps you good luck!

Turn 1 Delver into turn 2 Telling Time lets you potentially rig the top card to flip Delver.
