@volleybear Thanks for the comment! As for your question:
I think Esper is fine, regardless of Amonkhet. It seems to have little impact to Modern, so I still think it's good.
However, budget would be a bit of a concern. This is arguably cheaper than both, but I would not recommend it, as most of my brews flop. UW control is fantastic right now, so if you want a solid option, jump on that train.

The answer to that would be no. Here is the ruling from its Gatherer page -
"If you are instructed to cast a spell with overload without paying its mana cost, you cant choose to pay its overload cost instead."
So long story short, the wording of the card makes it not possible.

@maskedgrenadier Thanks for the comment! As for it:
Bone Picker is best in a creature heavy build, such as Aristocrats, if you are familiar, or when creatures are consistently dying. This deck is neither. Keep in mind, Path to Exile doesn't work with it either, and counterspells don't work the same. In addition, I prefer to keep up my mana, and don't want to limit my kill spells to sorcery speed.
These styles of decks want to cast a creature, then cast the rest of my cards, whereas Bone Picker is the opposite.
Final bit, Delver decks are supposed to be very mana efficient, and a 4 mana sorcery speed card that doesn't impact the board is not worth it.
Thanks for the suggestion though!

You should go up to 8 cantrips. 4 is way too few for a delver style deck.
I say get rid of the 4 drops, as 4 is too much for Delver decks. They are supposed to be mana efficient, and 4 doesn't fit.
Also, Path to Exile is a must. Like you really need it.
Hope that helps!

Ancient Stirrings might be the card that the doctor ordered.

Peek will give you an idea when to combo.
Hope that helps.

Brewing is basically the process of making a deck, usually referring to the brainstorming side of it.

If you like brews and such, and want info just about Modern, I suggest you check out Modern Nexus, found here.
They have metagame snapshots for every month that are extremely useful, that will give you ideas of the crazy amount of decks that are viable.

Do you mean actual tokens, or token makers?
For actual tokens, the Unglued Goblin token, and for token maker, by far Brimaz, King of Oreskos.

Just to give you an idea on the different styles:

To be honest, it depends on the meta. Grixis is always pretty decent, but nothing spectacular. At the moment, it is best to run a Grixis Death's Shadow deck, essentially switching Delver for Death's Shadow, or running both at the same time.
Depending on what that 4th color is, it might be good to go that route. Delver is never one of those tier one decks (except for a brief amount of time where Grixis Delver was on top), and doesn't have a set best version, only a best version at a time.
In my opinion, for now, the 4 color variant sounds decent, if it's in the UBRW colors. UWB Delver, UWR Delver and UB Delver are also up there for being good candidates. Basically, Path to Exile and Fatal Push are really good right now, so I'd go for that.
Delver decks still have a huge space to grow, and have several variants that can get good at certain times. While it may not be the powerhouse it is in Legacy, it is a viable deck that rewards knowledge of how the format works, and can be experimented with heavily.
TL;DR - Delver is a good candidate in any meta, as long as you have the right pieces and knowledge of what's going on. In this meta, white and black are at their best, but this will change as time goes on, and Delver decks can adapt.
Not sure if that helps, but I hope I sold you on it. If you like to brew, play control, aggro somebody out, and play a bit of protect the queen, try it out.

You might want some Chalice of the Void. It's about the best card in these style of decks, as it punishes most decks that can overrun you.
Walking Ballista also does some work too in these decks, as a early removal spell and a great late game finisher.

Cool concept, just not sure how consistent it may be. At least it's only a two card combo (well, sometimes 3).
Hope that helps!
