The stonecoil serpent points to a backup plan here- Ugin's Conjurant and similar creatures can be cast on 0 to die instantly as a draw engine. There are also cheaper drain effects in modern- the traditional Blood Artist might not run because of toughness, but you can check out older Fecundity combo lists for ideas.

If you are going to play it in temur with ramp, jam some Worldspine Wurm and Through the Breach for a more reliable combo. Hitting wurm is normally enough to win, while more combo lines drastically increases the deck's resilience.
There are RUG combo lists out there, its just that all of the variations struggle with interaction for one reason or another.

This is a devotion list, but you also curve out at four, so priority should be on coco hits and t1 ramp. That means llanowar elves/arbor elf over sprawl, as they are blockers off company. Sprawl does let you power out that nut draw t1 elf, t2 sprawl into 4 drop, but you're already pushing the creature count pretty low, especially after sideboarding.

There are a few budget options like which play to this strategy- cheap enchantments which draw a card and a bunch of enchantment matters stuff to throw at their face. The cards that make it tick are Ethereal Armor and All That Glitters . Creatures like Champion of the Flame , Favored Hoplite & Lagonna-Band Trailblazer help.
Cartouche of Solidarity offers protection against 'sacrifice a creature' effects. Gleam of Authority can work alongside counters from heroic, but likes a higher creature count than ideal. If you insist on playing reckoner, Saving Grace exists. Hammerhands/ Cartouche of Zeal has eight functional copies if you often face single blockers, but Gryff's Boon offers flying and recursion. Consuming Fervor has a great rate for a pump spell.
Have fun and happy brewing!

I like the idea.
Good luck with the brew.

Through all of this, cutting the curve will be best achieved by increasing draw power, so that you still see your key cards reliably while having less wasted mana/time in early turns. Dusk urchins is an amazing build-around for this, as is scarscale- I'd look at reliably casting the two of them, then running any of the dozen variants of 1 mana card filtering in green in place of beseech, running just one canker, one soul snuffers and only two archers to make space. That means a 1 drop which likes getting a -1-1 on it for scarscale if you want to reliably beat down, or a manadork to power out urchins t2 if you want a more value or combo-based list.

I was considering a list like this which maindecked Lazotep Plating to abuse Ashen Rider and Agent of Treachery , but its not really fast enough- flicker seems good enough. I'm pretty sure your list is close to optimal unless there are tutor effects you can use for setup.
