I just made this deck exactly how you have it, minus the sideboard. I'm super excited to play it in the next couple days, I love really fast decks and this looks like it's gonna be my cup of tea. In case you're interested, here's what I put in my sideboard.
I put so many Sentinel Totem's in my side, simply because a TON of people in my area play Golgari, and it's a super easy, and cheap, counter to their deck; plus it allows you to scry, which is always nice. I chose Inescapable Blaze over Banefire because it's an instant, that can't be countered, versus a sorcery; it's always nice to do that kind of thing on your opponents end step. Warlord's Fury and Crash Through both for their combat advantage abilities, plus you get to draw a card. Cosmotronic Wave helps with 1/1 tokens, and makes it so everything else can't block. Fight with Fire could be a game ender, or board wipe. Experimental Frenzy could be insane with all the low costs in this deck.
So that's what I put in mine, and why. Will report back on my games in a few days, thanks for the deck build!

Thanks for replying so quick DangoDaikazoku! I have indeed watched After Story. No lie, I sobbed.
Thanks for your recommendations on the 3 drops, I was thinking a few of those as well. After looking over some more cards on Gatherer, I came up with a couple more ideas as well, if you wouldnt mind giving me your opinion? I know you're not used to the standard meta, which is totally fine.
The ones I'd like feedback on, and why I chose them, are these:
Chromatic Lantern, replacing 2 Pillar of Origins, opening another two 2 drops, which I would replace with Amulet of Safekeeping, Blink of an Eye, Board the Weatherlight, Discovery / Dispersal, Find / Finality, Revitalize, Root Snare, Search for Azcanta Flip, Song of Freyalise, Thaumatic Compass Flip, or I could add back some more walls.
Quasiduplicate, for extra Walls, plus Jump Start.
Ritual of Rejuvenation, for life gain plus card draw
Wayward Swordtooth, land advantage, plus possible win condition
Sinister Sabotage, counter spell, plus surveil to potentially get rid of something I dont need.
Slaughter the Strong, could potentially board wipe my opponent
Sprouting Renewal, convoke, plus 2/2 creature, or artifact/enchantment removal
Sylvan Awakening, potential alternate win condition
Unwind, counter plus untap lands
Broken Bond, artifact/enchantment removal, plus land advantage

DangoDaikazoku Hey man, thanks for your comment! First of all, love the name! Immediately made me sing the song in my head haha. I appreciate your input on my deck, so let me just explain why I picked some things.
I put in Pillar of Origins for two reasons. One, I could declare either Wall or Dragon, allowing me to get a free mana with either, also freeing up mana on my board for potential combos, extra creatures, etc. I also picked it because it's an artifact, and would go well with Tezzeret, Artifice Master Zero ability, allowing me to draw two cards, if I have three or more artifacts on the field. I have Tezzeret's Gatebreaker in for three reasons, one is that it allows me to basically scry 5 cards, and seeing as how most of the deck is Blue or Artifacts, I'm almost guaranteed to find something I could use from it. Reason two being it's another artifact for Tezzeret's draw ability, and reason three, I could always use it as a backup in case both of my Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or Suspicious Bookcase's are in the graveyard, exiled, bottom of my deck, etc. I only kept Novice Knight in there for a decent one drop creature, so I could totally substitute in two more Wall of Vines instead. Putting in some three drops is probably a good idea as well, do you have any recommendations? I'm looking on gatherer now, but any advice would be appreciated. I'll also totally add some counter spells to my sideboard. Thanks again for your comment!
