Essence Backlash is good for countering creatures, especially if its a high CMC type like Stormbreath Dragon or Verdant Force (Not that anyone plays with Verdant Force nowadays anyway but still). I would drop searing spear for Lightning Bolt which is a staple in any modern/legacy burn deck. I would also drop Counterflux as you can't use the overload cost with Elite Arcanist from exile (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=370747 - rule link). If you have the funds, look up Temple of Epiphany and Sulfur Falls, both are decent non-basic lands that will give you a scry advantage.
