Unfortunately Battlefield Forge isn't Standard legal. I used to run it all the time when it was.
I would do this to inprove your deck a little:

Thank you, Cicjose
I used to like Summary Dismissal on the eldrazi heavy meta. I just don't know what would we need to use it against.
Thraben Inspector can be a very decent turn 1 play replacing itself, I just wouldn't know what to remove. I have also considered Kessig Prowler Flip for a 1 mana play that is not a blank in the late game with a sort of relevant subtype.

I think this deck would benefit a lot from more 1-drops. Modern is a format where, if you want to be aggressive, you really need to be spending as much of your mana as possible in the first 3 or 4 turns; with your current deck configuration you run a high risk of being flooded on 2-drops and doing nothing on turn 1, then playing a 2-drop on turn 2, another one on turn 3 and then finally, if you've hit all of your land drops, playing two cards on turn 4, which is a pattern that's unlikely to be fast enough. I would move the Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip to the main (although maybe only 2; you really don't ever want to be in a situation where you draw multiple of a legendary creature and have one stuck in your hand) and consider Thraben Inspector, Mardu Woe-Reaper and/or Soldier of the Pantheon.
I would ditch the Elite Inquisitors, unless you know for sure that the protections are going to be very relevant in your meta-game; it seems like it's just going to be a 2/2 first strike, vigilance a lot of the time and while that's not bad, I don't think it's good enough to justify the slot.
I also don't think you need a whole playset of Grand Abolishers maindeck; they're not especially good in multiples and there are a lot of decks in Modern that the Abolisher's ability does nothing to. Again, unless you already know that you're going to be facing a lot of decks that rely on casting and activating things on your turn, I would reduce their number and consider just moving them entirely to the sideboard.

Other than Tracker and Tamiyo, Field Researcher I don't see other needs for so much green. I think it would be better to focus more on a Azorius manabase and just splash green for Tracker and Tamiyo since they both only require a single green in their costs. I'm a huge fan of Sylvan Advocate, but being a two drop and wanting to be able to cast him turn two really messes up your manabase.
A primarily white with a blue and green splash manabase is better, this lets you play many double white casting cost cards which are the most powerful for your strategy.
Avacyn is one of the best tempo cards in Standard I would use her as a 4 of main deck. The same can be said about Gideon. The powerful curve of Queller into Gideon into Avacyn is what you're looking for.
You really want to play as much as you can at instant speed of course there are exceptions Gideon and Tracker, but they are both powerful enough that you don't mind tapping out for them. Bant colors allow you to play a lot at instant speed because of cycling. Censor and Cast Out are good tempo cards because of their instant cycling. Being able to cycle them for a draw if they aren't needed. I recommend you use a removal suite of Stasis and Cast main deck because of their instant speed and ability to hit any creature. Censor can slow down your opponent because they will not want to tap out for something without having an extra mana; they have to play around Censor or get punished for not. Declaration in Stone is fine in some matchups, Zombies, but I would put it in the sideboard and main deck instant removal in it's place.

Your best sideboard card is Fumigate because it's an actual board wipe and you will need it vs all the midrange that's now in Standard. Cataclysmic Gearhulk is not a good card because it gives your opponent choices. You want to be clearing the board with your board wipe not letting your opponent keep their best creature. Essence Scatter is also a good sideboard card right now because Standard is dominated by creatures.
Another card to consider for tempo is Baral's Expertise although not instant, being able to bounce up to three of your opponent's creatures and then play a Gideon or Tracker for free seems very good.
Good luck with your deck.
