Target player puts the top two cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Draw a card.
So i love the deck +1.
I see we have Verdant Catacombs and Breeding Pool in here and i understand the Nature's Claim but if you know what deck your facing horrible idea just keep to Watery Grave i see you have fetch lands IMO add more to combo with Hedron Crab turn 3 already milled 12 cards, yes please! I would remove 1-2 Thought Scour for some 1 drops like maybe add another Surgical Extraction or Jace's Phantasm because having 2 thought scour in opening hand is pointless. Think about splashing in some white for Supreme Verdict and Path to Exile
funny fact i want to start into modern with UR Delver too ;) decklist here first delve(r) into modern
i like the Stromkirk Noble to get bigger and bigger in an aggro deck! nice onedrop creature i will try it for myself soon and here is my +1 ;)
the Spellheart Chimera isn't as good as Runechanter's Pike i guess - it dies to every Lightning Bolt and the trample isn't neccessary while you can clear a path with your spells, another plus is that Runechanter's Pike firststike allows your creatures to trade 1:0 in combat so you force your openent to play around it while the Spellheart Chimera will be attacked by each strength>=3 creature
Izzet Charm is a great flexible card but it is worse than manaleak Spell Pierce Faithless Looting Magma Jet or Pillar of Flame Remand --- in fact it is more flexible but it can't target player for 2dmg like burnspells should, it needs UR which isn't playable at each 2nd turn, and i don't like it :D
all in all i would replace the Spellheart Chimera with Runechanter's Pike and replace 2 Izzet Charm and 1 Magma Jet with 1 Dismember 1 Pillar of Flame and 1 Thought Scour (i think 2 Magma Jet are enough and a Pillar of Flame looks worse on the first glance but it exiles Kitchen Finks for example , if you use a sideboard play Magma Jet main and Pillar of Flame sideboard --- Dismember can deal with Stormbreath Dragon Thundermaw Hellkite Restoration Angel and most times Tarmogoyf --- Thought Scour is a nice drawspell that allows you to fill your grave with spells or interrupt your openent when he scryed some cards on top of his deck)
at least your creaturebase looks more red oriantated, whereass your spells got a blue favour but your landbase looks solid - maybe give it some testgames to see if you need to fix your mana some more but it looks ok on the first glance ;)
cards i would add : Dismember Pillar of Flame Thought Scour Runechanter's Pike and maybe some more blue creatures but i like the aggro Stromkirk Noble as well and i didn't tried him till now... decide on yourself :)
I wouldn't wait for rotation to pick up two more Steam Vents . They are probably the most played shock land in modern, I can't see them dropping at all, even when the standard players dump them.
As for Manamorphose I don't think it has a place in this deck, mostly because it is a "do nothing spell". Yeah, it replaces itself, but that is pretty much all it does. There are only a few cards in your list that have more than one colour in them, and for the most part they are all blue (which should never be a problem for you because your list is a lot more blue than red). Cantrips are good, but you want to play cantrips that do something as well. Gitaxian Probe gives you hand knowledge, Serum Visions lets you dig 3 cards deep, Thought Scour disrupts your opponent or buffs your pike, and Remand counters spells (also...you should really run more of these, they are incredible, a lot of times they are basically a Time Walk ). Manamorphose can be a fantastic card, its awesome in draft for making your deck smaller, and in storm for upping your count, but in an aggro/tempo deck like this you don't ever want a "do nothing". So basically, TL:DR...I do not believe that it is worth a slot in any capacity in a list like this.
still think Go for the Throat is better. maybe one less land cause you don't have too many cards tih converted mana cost greater than 5. Not sure if you need 4 Thought Scour . you could add a couple Mind Sculpt s. and add another Breaking instead of a land
I'd replace both Cerulean Wisps and Twisted Image with Thought Scour since it'll help with the milling as well as act as the cantrip you want. Also, I think the deck would be better if you focused on the milling aspect and cut out the proliferate. It looks like you've got a good start on a proliferate deck but I don't think this should be it. For replacements I'd look at consuming abberation and Induce Paranoia . Also, I think both Warden of Evos Isle and War-Wing Siren could be replaced. For those I'd suggest Jace's Phantasm and Balustrade Spy . Just my 2 cents! Good luck with whatever you decide to do though!
