Preordain and Brainstorm are banned in Modern, unsurprisingly, although Serum Visions is perfectly ok for some reason... I do like decks that try to make unused cards work against high-tier, which is why I like your deck I think (my Happy Mea-ill deck started with that).

Fair enough. I guess with all of the ramp in your deck the high cost cards are more viable. I also play against quite aggro decks in my group, so I place a lot of importance of either getting going fast or being able to foil early threats. I still think Lorescale Coatl could benefit from more reliable/early/reusable draw to get him started, but again, my bias I guess.
Let me know how this deck plays out!

Another thought, you should experiment with fewer lands. You'd be surprised how well your deck will work on 23/22 lands, and it gives more room for the good stuff.

Although I use Hornet Queen in my Abzan deck and love it, at 7 mana (3 green) it might be a bit much compared to the rest. Instead of expensive card draw what about looting (Draw a card, then discard a card) effects? Smuggler's Copter was so good they banned it in Standard format (still okay in modern though) and will give you aerial threat and looting ability for cheap. Take Inventory is also quite good for cheap draw as long as you have 3 or 4, and it will scale for late game. Take a look for creatures that let you draw cards when they deal damage. All of these would be better IMO than your expensive card draw.

Hello, a nice shell. My concern would be that you have nothing to protect your key creatures from removal. Your card draw is also quite expensive. Blossoming Defense could help with the former. There are plenty of 3CMC blue cards which would improve card draw too.
Simic Charm, like any of the charms, is always an immediate consideration in UB, as they are quite versatile. In this case the Hexproof will again protect your creatures from being targeted.
I would also consider more token spawners, such as creatures with the Fabricate ability.
Hope this helps!
