I think I'm missing something... why Gemstone Caverns?

If WotC refuses to change, I hope their sales continue to reflect it. When you OBVIOUSLY have all your pros shilling for you, and your groupthink doesn't allow for any disagreement (to the point of unwarranted bannings), you're not creating an environment that makes people want to invest hundreds and thousands of dollars only to see a game company fashion themselves as faux-political "activists" with the money.
WotC, you're a game company. I don't care if you're SJWs or full-blown alt-right, just keep your politics out of your product. Marvel's comics are doing terribly because they made a toxic, SJW environment, and WotC will reap the same reward if they continue to do what they're doing.

Sweet brew! Some cards to consider:
Pilgrim's Eye also seems a bit slow at 3CMC. Maybe there's a 2-drop with a suitable ETB that could replace it?
For SB, Hope of Ghirapur is sweet, recurrable disruption piece against Storm/etc

Blackmail is great in the budget version, but with Liliana of the Veil to force discard every turn, I think it can be left out. Blackmail is sweet when you can hit lands, but it's MUCH worse on t1/t2. It has a place, but in general is a higher variance card, in my experience.

No Brainstorm? Seems really critical to flip delvers IMO; upkeep brainstorm is nice to have.
20 creatures seem heavy for a delver deck, especially with fewer cards that stack the top of your deck.

Sweet brew, cheers!

SJWs of the Coast proves themselves to be thunderous hypocrites, again... as usual.
They'll quietly amend their policies and act like they never did anything wrong. "B-but the judges are totally not WotC employees!" What a surprise, lefties exploit the people who make them money. Sheesh.

Suh-weet brew! Only suggestion I'd make is to up it significantly higher on fetches to fuel Searing Blaze. I'd probably go as high as 8.

Remand seems important for drawing an extra cards. Sweet brew!

Man, merfolk is looking stronger than ever... another 2-drop lord? Eesh!

Sweet brew! One card I'd heavily consider is Walk the Aeons. It can be snapped, and can be bought back in the late game.
Any plans for a SB?

Definitely should be 4x Scalding Tarn and 4x Steam Vents. Probably Spirebluff Canal, too. Heck, even another 2-4 fetchlands would be good for shuffling away unwanted cards you peek at with Delver of Secrets Flip.
I'd probably swap 2-3 of the SB counters for Spreading Seas for use against Tron.
Sweet brew! Cheers!

I don't think you need more than one Dakmor Salvage. Early, it's a really bad draw.
Also seems very removal-heavy compared to most lists I see; I'd put in more hand hate to try to strip threats before you even need to worry about them. Funeral Charm as a 4 of seems heavy, too. I would definitely up to 4x Wrench Mind as it's almost always a two-for-one and you can side it out for affinity.
I'd definitely put in Blackmail. Don't forget, it can hit lands!

I second Snapcaster Mage. Too much utility, and attached to a 2/1 body. Just so, so good.

Good points. Any graveyard hate would be good for the SB, doesn't have to be Bojuka Bog. Tormod's Crypt, Relic of Progenitus, Leyline of the Void or Nihil Spellbomb are all solid options! Makes Past in Flames a lot less scary and nerfs the heck out of Snapcaster Mage

You could've simply stated "I don't want to spend the money on them," rather than try to claim there are "never any benefits," which there are.
Bottom line: There's multiple advantages and no downsides, at all. Check your autism at the door and take stock of the situation. Not wanting to drop $40 is a legitimate reaction, but to claim there aren't benefits is demonstrably, objectively false.
