Squirrelbacon: Justice Strike just seems too inefficient compared to Path to Exile even though it triggers both Hero & Pyro. Same goes with the GRN & RNA split cards, they all just don't do any effect that the deck wants or an effect efficient enough compared to other cards that already exist in Modern.
Dryad Militant is sorta interesting, but like you said, isn't hitting the most important cards in Phoenix and Dredge. If Storm is prevalent at your lgs, then playing Militant would make more sense.

Heroic Reinforcements , like Jeskai Charm , is probably a bit too cute, but also allows for a swing of 9 points of damage with either just Hero or Pyro out. Like snappy, I think it is worth testing at least.
As someone who has also played Geist of Saint Traft and Spell Queller in the same deck, I agree it can be awkward sometimes. But usually I find that it is highly situational on which is the correct to play. There is no hard rule about which one you should play on turn 3 as it'll depend on a lot of factors, your opponent's board state and deck for example, on which is going to end up being correct. Also, Geist excels mostly against combo decks and is still an extra, and I'd say necessary threat, against control.
Eidolon of the Great Revel is an interesting sideboard card and probably worth considering if Storm's meta game share goes up. Same with Render Silent , it's a personal favorite of mine in EDH as well.
I love discussing decks and card ideas with people, we may not always agree on everything, but it is always worth figuring out what cards are worth testing or not, especially with a brew like this.

The reason why I'm going with Jeskai over Mardu is that I already own the cards for U/W/x Control decks in Modern. So it is easier for me to experiment with Jeskai. Therefore, I'd like to keep discussion on improving the Jeskai version.
I've seen a lot of people not liking Electrolyze , but as someone who has played a lot of Jeskai Control, that card is one of the key reasons why you play Jeskai over UW. Killing tokens, dorks or utility creatures at Electrolyze's rate is always good.
I'm unsure about Snapcaster Mage as it just seems kinda slow in a more aggressive/tempo style deck. But it is probably worth testing.
