Over the last few years, modern has changed a lot, and the cards printed in MH2 have really pushed the game's power curve higher.
A lot of the budget brews I did 5 years ago are no longer viable, and even teir 1 decks need serious work-overs. There are options, but its important to look at how your local meta has changed rather than leaning too hard on generic advice.
The most important cards to get to grips with to know how the metagame has shifted;
Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer - card advantage, ramp, it goes in every deck that can afford it, until wizards finally gets around to a banning.
Expressive Iteration - its card advantage that is defining R/U
Counterspell has been printed into modern.
Dauthi Voidwalker, which is killing graveyard interactions.
Triomes, fetches for multiple colours, treasures etc mean that there are a lot of '4-5 colour good stuff' type lists, or two colour decks just splashing for one card.
Hammer time is no longer a meme.
Crashing Footfalls/Living end got some incredible cascade/cycling cards, so have a plan for lots of creatures early.
'Competitive' B/R is mostly just jamming voidwalker, pilferer then thoughtsieze/lightning bolt.
All of that said, there are options.Black/Red has just got a glut of tokens, that point to artifact sacrifice or similar shenanigans - I've had fun messing around with Glaze Fiend/Slaughter-Priest of Mogis. I can't say its competitive, but its not completely out of the running.
Kalain, Reclusive Painter creature buffs, tokens and ramp.
Oni-Cult Anvil makes 1/1 artifact tokens and pings.
Rakdos Headliner points to more discard strategies, but doesn't yet have enough support cards.
Brew hard, and best of luck finding something that works for your modern group.

If you have zero-cost or uncosted permanents like Memnite, Mox Amber, Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar, etc, they don't add anything, so you could theoretically get all seven cards if you flipped the right ones.

What are some of the most difficult card names to pronounce? (And let me get the obvious Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar out of the way)

cyeRunner thanks for the suggestion! I tried Castle Locthwain during playtesting, the etb tapped in this deck I think is a bit too much of a downside both for early tempo and it forces to mulligan single land hands which would be good (Chancellor of the Tangle + Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar + Street Wraith or Chancellor of the Tangle + Unmarked Grave + Persist), plus the four lands to draw a card is probably not too relevant since this isn't a grindy deck, not to mention the dead cards that pile up and increase the damage. Hive of the Eye Tyrant fixes the control matchup since it is a constant source of damage, and in most cases it's not easily interactable, for drawn out games, and it etbs untapped if you have less than two lands, which is the critical number for this deck to function properly.

Yes. From the Oracle rulings:
Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar has no mana cost and its mana value is 0. It cannot be cast normally.
While you can't cast it normally, it does have a mana value of zero and cascade casts it without paying its mana cost, so cascade works fine to cast it.

Yes. Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar has no mana cost, so it can't be cast normally, but can be cast with alternate methods like her own ability or cascade. She has a mana value of 0 so the cascade spell needs to have a mana value of at least 1 to cast her.
