Good. We need more Kirinmageddon in our lives. If you want to look, I made a GW version: Armageddon & Taxes
The things I noticed as I was building/testing:
Getting the combo is a really strong play, but if you're behind on board, a lot of the time your opponent will just run you over before you can capitalize. So you either need mass anti-creature effects like Ghostly Prison or Ensnaring Bridge or early/mass game removal to cover for you.
Playing the removal game usually means you can't fit as many combo tutors in, which leads to games where you kill a bunch of their threats and never find the combo.
Spirits tribal could work, but then there's the risk of blowing up your own stuff.
One color combo that I think could work is BW. You could use Ranger-Captain of Eos to tutor for Ugin's Conjurant/Giver of Runes and the removal is really good. Maybe go with some existing Stoneforge or Mardu Shadow lists for a shell.
There was also a group that posted a bunch of different Krinmageddon variants on Reddit, but I can't remember what they were called.

If you want to take inspiration from existing decks, the best purely mono w deck in modern is Martyr Proc ( Martyr of Sands + Proclamation of Rebirth + Squad Hawk). Another decent white deck to look at is Death & Taxes, especially since they unbanned Stoneforge Mystic and printed Giver of Runes .
Looking at that list of cards, a Martyr Soul Sisters deck comes to mind. You would use the token makers in conjunction with the soul sisters to gain life, then grind them out with Sky Hussar. This idea does not seem to be very competitive, but it would use a bunch of those cards.
If I had to try and build a decent mono white deck that wasn't just a copy/paste, I'd make one with the Celestial Kirin and Ugin's Conjurant combo and back it up with some D&T cards like Giver of Runes . Incidentally, a deck like that would like Flagstones of Trokair very much.

Whoops, my bad. Why is it that you prefer Scroundrel over Thornbow Archer? I get that the 2 power creature trades up better, but the nearly-guaranteed ping ability on Thornbow lets you hit through blockers when you're trying to finish off the last few points of their life total. And they both hit for 2 unblocked.

Bonecrusher Giant is a good card, but I think it would slow down a deck like this. You could maybe swap out a couple Abrade for it.

I would totally keep the Steam-kins. In fact, I would also get the 4th copy as it's a really good card.

One card you should have is Monastery Swiftspear . It's one of the premier burn cards in every format in which it's legal. I'd cut Viashino Pyromancer to fit them in, but pretty much anything else in the deck is worth cutting for them. Just try to get four copies.
If you made your deck more spell-heavy, you could turn it into a Mono R Prowess-type of deck that uses Monastery Swiftspear , Soul-Scar Mage , Runaway Steam-Kin , and Bedlam Reveler as main win conditions. That deck generally wins with fast creature damage rather than burn, but I still recommend looking up some lists for reference.
Also, Wild Slash is better than Shock.

How about splashing white for a couple Lightning Helix and Path (or On Thin Ice if you want flavor)? Since you have Astrolabe, you won't need to commit to white all that much in the mana base. White also gives you much better options for sideboard cards.

Emry, Lurker of the Loch digs 4 cards deep for your Reservoirs and also gives you combo resiliency by letting you cast destroyed Reservoirs or even your sacrificed eggs if you need to keep the combo going. It's too good to not play at least three.
