Love it! I do dislike adding ineffective 0 drops just for the sake of draw (especially if you just get more ineffective crap with it). I prefer to beef up my 99, while putting my opponents on the doomsday clock, AND still drawing plenty. Also, regarding Captain's Claws - I agree, that card has been invaluable with so many mass-sac decks in existence. Other cards that have provided sac fodder for me are: Sword of Body and Mind,Moonsilver Spear Most people don't like the cost on the 2nd one but sometimes it has been awesome to suddenly turn Sram into a flying token deck.

What do you think is wrong with your deck? This is your deck, not mine; here's what I suggest.
I feel like Hero of Bladehold costs too much money and mana for what she does.
Are you sure you want to run that many planeswalkers? I run Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip because he is a cheap creature that can flip into a planeswalker. Plus I feel that Elspeth, Sun's Champion costs too much mana too late into the game to be useful as well. You need to lower your average converted mana cost.
If you want the deck to be cheaper run only Plains if you have to.
Daru Warchief isn't legal in modern btw.
Hope this helps!

The idea is nice. Seems like you're going for a word soup thing with Odric, Lunarch Marshal also.
I'd suggest looking into Sacred Cat as a one drop with lifelink that you can get back if it dies.
Since you're running Mastermind's Acquisition you should be able to throw some of the 'what if' cards into the sideboard only, and grab them when needed.For example, Grand Abolisher is a great side board card, but could just fizzle if the opponent doesn't interact on your turn much.
That goes for Authority of the Consuls as well. If the opponent doesn't have any creatures, it is a dead card in your main deck. You could remove both copies from the main and have one in the side board and just grab it with Mastermind.
I'd argue that Kambal, Consul of Allocation could possibly be the same here. if the opponent is a creature heavy deck, it wouldn't do much work.
I think you should look into cutting down some of the creatures to balance it with some non-creature spells as well.
Fatal Push is a stupid good removal card if you have the cash.
I love Aetherflux Reservoir as a win condition. If you can get the combo off, it is great, but this deck might be a bit slow for that. I've typically only seen/played this as the win-con in some white artifact "storm" decks. In fact, I have one that I mess with on MTGO. Aetherflux storm
Maybe look into going towards a control/prison style archetype and adding cards like
- Aven Mindcensor
- Ghostly Prison
- Pillory of the Sleepless
- Runed Halo (Pricey though).
- Selfless Spirit to protect your combo pieces.
These will just deny the opponent any actions while you set things up.
I'm not that great at building decks, so don't take anything I say as gospel or anything.
