Interesting concept! I've seen some DS lists playing Sprite Dragon before but I haven't seen one this aggressive before.

First off, Stormchaser Mage doesn't seem that good. There are usually better options for that slot in modern like Stormwing Entity. However, here I think you should definitely add a full playset of Scourge of the Skyclaves. Scourge is like a more aggressive shadow that works well in builds that lower the opponent's life as fast as their own (like this one).

Temur Battle Rage is a classic GDS card that can steal wins out of nowhere and adds additional reach to the deck, I'd definitely consider it as a 2 of here.

Serum Visions and Sign in Blood feel too slow.

I personally prefer Distortion Strike over Slip Through Space. Slip replaces itself but distortion is a 2 for 1 and the second cast doesn't cost mana, making it more mana efficient - and it also buffs the creatures.

Dragon's Rage Channeler + Mishra's Bauble package may work here since its being included in both UR blitz decks and DS decks, and this deck is kind of like a marriage between the two. A 3/3 flier for 1 mana and a 0 mana noncreature spell to trigger prowess could probably help a lot.

For the manabase, I feel like 18 is enough. If you add the baubles, which turn the deck into a 56 card deck, 17-18 is definitely the sweet spot. I suggest you take out checklands like Drowned Catacomb and Sulfur Falls. I'd add 2 Fiery Islets to help guard against flooding out. They can also lower your life total in a pinch to buff shadow and scourge.

No problem man. Looking closer at your deck, I would try this:

If you can afford dual lands like Watery Grave or Drowned Catacomb it would also help a lot

Out of curiosity, is this actually competitive? Like have you tested it against some other decks? The deck feels pretty slow and I'm not sure you have enough cards to stall the game long enough, since the only control elements I see are 4x Spell Snare and 4x Damnation (and maybe Ashiok). This isn't a criticism per se, since I like janky decks, I'm just not sure whether this is competitive or jank. I feel like it needs more ways to slow down the game, either with controlly cards like more counterspells/removal or prison cards like Ensnaring Bridge.

Also, I think the manabase could be improved with some Drowned Catacomb and stuff. And if you want to play Phyrexian Unlife from the sideboard, you basically only have 5 lands that can make white mana. I'd just put the godless shrine mainboard and add some extra fetches like Marsh Flats to free up sideboard space.

Another more serious concern is getting targets for Surgical Extraction and Extirpate. You have some ways to get stuff into the graveyard with 5 discard spells, 4 counterspells, and 5 wipes, but every time you cast Day's Undoing all that gets shuffled away. Do you often find this to be a problem? If so, I think some more discard spells (1-2 more copies of Thoughtseize) and Counterspells could help.

I would run Fatal Push over Moment of Craving , plus 1-2 Dreadbore s (or Bedevil ) to get rid of bigger creatures or problematic walkers.

Angrath, Captain of Chaos and Jace, Cunning Castaway don't seem that great, and even if you decide to keep them I don't think three copies of each is justified. Liliana, the Last Hope is both recursion and removal, plus her ultimate also synergizes if you ever fire it off.

Have you considered a playset of Thoughtseize ? You don't have a single turn one play in the entire deck, and I think this card would be a great way to gain information and disrupt their gameplan.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir might be a nice card to try out for more +1/+1 counters.

Also, your mana costs are pretty demanding so you should definitely cut some basics and add in more Blood Crypt , along with some Drowned Catacomb , and Steam Vents . Fabled Passage could also be used to trigger revolt on Push.

All in all these are the changes I would make:

Artatras Oh good lord; I confused Mystic Remora with Deadeye Tracker , a completely different advantage-accruing 1 drop I was testing out.

Excuse me while I go find a Drowned Catacomb to lay face-down in for awhile.
