Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be a good choice with so many black mana symbols

You got a lot of different things going on in this deck but it's very unfocused and you got a lot of dead draws, my first deck was exactly the same. It's worth picking a win condition or a combo (like a few cards that lock you opponent out) and building a deck around that.
Generally you want to set yourself up to do something every turn, at the moment almost 50% of the deck is , so your first two turns are almost always just lands, 19 is really too few even with ramp and you should start with 22 in most decks just to avoid the landless opening hands.
If you like the idea of ramp, still try running more lower mana cost cards than higher cost cards to start with; Birds of Paradise, Utopia Sprawl, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Ordeal of Nylea, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate or run mana dorks (there's heaps of elves that tap for mana), use the ramp with something like Hydras and Hardened Scales + Winding Constrictor ie Stay Hydrated if you want to run a counter ramp deck or just make a big creature zoo deck with Primeval Titan and Chord of Calling.
The Tron package is almost totally useless in this deck and its dead draw early on. You really must run 4 of each with something cheap like Expedition Map and more colourless spells to take full advantage ie Shogg-tron. Tron lands are all non-basics so you can't fetch them with any of your ramp besides Titan and once activated you dont have anything to play that really puts pressure on. Have a look at Tron in general if you like these lands, there's lots of varieties but its important build around them (ie https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-tron-16063#paper)
If you want to make an enchantment deck try cheaper cards like Aegis of the Gods and fetching your enchantment creatures with cards like Zur the Enchanter. Sigil of the Empty Throne is a really good wincon and you should run 4 in an enchantment deck especially when you're also running enchantment creatures and Cloudshift, this could also do well as a mono-white enchantment deck along with Entreat the Angels, Leyline of Sanctity, Kor Spiritdancer and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx if you dont want to invest in expensive dual lands. I made an experimental deck around fetching enchantments No Girls Allowed (Pillow Fort) with more of a voltron flavor which I also enjoyed for a while (it sucks tho), but the "Auras" archetype is competitive and theres a bunch of good decks around (http://www.mtgtop8.com/archetype?a=299). I've recently been killing it with a enchantment lock deck based around Solemnity which I think is super cool and nice Solemnity Now!.

I would take Shared Animosity over Molten Rain in most games, Goblin Rabblemaster is also fun in this deck. Definitely consider putting in the Frenzied Goblins and a full playset of Mogg War Marshal, they all put in huge amounts of work, especially with Goblin Grenade. I've never tried running 8Wack with Simian only because I feel like you're paying two cards to get a bolt or a 1/1 goblin a turn early which too much.
