I think it depends on your build like TriusMalarky said before.
- bad control
I personally fall into the bad control category with running Cruel Ultimatum and Grave Titan as my wincon.... because I'm spamming sweepers to stay alive I dont really bother with putting bodies on the field that won't survive Consume the Meek and Anger of the Gods .

I like this deck a lot.
Delve is a keyword ability that lets you exile cards from your graveyard rather than pay a generic mana to cast a spell. And I don't see any cards in your deck that use this ability so it will probably confuse people.
If you want to name the deck utilizing the creature types, how about "Grixis Dreadhorde Snapcaster in the Ice of Secrets"? More straightforward - no one would get confused.

I'd cut pretty much all your creatures. If your trying to make this modern viable. There are just so many better options. Keep Azusa, Lost but Seeking Carnage Tyrant and Thrun, the Last Troll and Lotus Cobra. Primeval Titan is the best green creature in the game if you add in more instans and sorcery Delver of Secrets Flip is incredible

wallisface All of this is duly noted and is good advice. Granted is what makes Fae of Wishes worth running but don't forget it's also a 1/4 flyer for 2cmc and the only one that exists: it can block Delver of Secrets Flip and many other early creature threats that might otherwise slip through. Another creature in the deck also makes more targets for removal, which means Archivist is more likely to survive when it finally hits the table. I'm wondering if I should even add in Riftwing Cloudskate or maybe even Delver to make it more of a tempo deck.

As a suggestion, thing in the ice with young pyro is a nombo XD. I'd reccomend you playing Delver of Secrets Flip, focusing on the tempo side of the deck. But, if you want a midrange thing maybe I'd add the new card Magmatic Channeler You can check my profile to see my Delver decks ;).

PuddinWing I like the look of this but it almost feels like it's being pulled in two directions at once. I see either a Mystical Teachings toolbox control deck, or a more tempo oriented Delver of Secrets Flip & Bone Picker style deck.
If you want to lean more into the first one, I would find some one-of type instants and have them in your deck to have an answer for specific match ups etc Echoing Decay & Echoing Truth. I would also swap out Bone Picker for Augur of Bolas to help you find the tools you need in a match.
If instead you want to lean into the tempo/aggro (?) strategy of Delver of Secrets Flip and Bone Picker I would increase those Cast Downs to 4 copies and swap out SOME of the slower counter magic and lean into removal since that is what Bone Picker really needs to make it worth it.
Like the look of this! Hope my input is in some way helpful and constructive! Happy Pauper!

My suggestion is to make the deck a bit more efficient by exchanging Sprite Dragon or Delver of Secrets Flip for Crackling Drake and then switching the cryptic, logic knot, and essence scatter for Remand. These changes do change it more from midrange into tempo though.
