Also, TypicalTimmy, sorry to nitpick, but although lands have no mana cost, they still have a CMC of 0. This same interaction is what allows stuff like Ancestral Vision to be cast from an X=0 Electrodominance , and allows this Jarad to recur opposing lands for free.

Thanks for the response! Wrenn and Six were in the initial build solely because they are a cool-looking new card that I wanted to test out. The initial thought was that they help guarantee Turn 3 As Foretold, can kill dorks/Bob/etc, and in the case of a long game can do cute things with their ult (unless I'm misreading the cards, retrace on Footfalls/Vision is disgusting with As Foretold, allowing the suspend spells to be cast from the yard for free every turn). That said, this is absolutely Magical Christmas Land in a format where a vast majority of games end early. I might relegate a couple copies of the walker to the sb, but they're not important enough to the mb.
I tested out Looting in the deck recently, and you're right - it's /very good/. Initially I was skeptical because it provides less-than-card-parity and can't be cast on my opponents' turn off an As Foretold , but the filtering is deeper than things like Opt and, as you said, it dumps things in the yard much more efficiently - too efficiently to be ignored.
Hour of Promise is spicy as all get-out and something that I hadn't even considered, though I worry it might suffer from the same faults that Electrodominance did - that is, it's bad off of Bloodbraid Elf and is a dead draw unless you've got a hit. I'll test it out, especially because it gets more powerful with more things in the yard, but I might pass. Thanks again for the advice!

Thank you for the suggestions! I've been considering Thought Scour and/or Faithless Looting as alternatives to Opt and Serum Visions because the deck needs more ways to get Footfalls/Vision in the yard for Dreadhorde Arcanist . I still have yet to really test the deck but I imagine at least looting will probably make the cut. Electrodominance is a card that was in the initial build because T2 Footfalls at instant speed seemed like a really good play. It's just a really mediocre hit off of Bloodbraid Elf unless I've got Vision/Footfalls in hand, so they were cut for the Arcanists. If the deck develops in a direction more focused around the suspend spells then I could picture including it alongside both Foretold and Arcanist.
Hexdrinker and Arcanist admittedly die to a lot/most of the removal present in Modern, but they're also both creatures that can't be ignored. While As Foretold -> Crashing Footfalls is one of the main plans for the deck, I'm not sure that Bolt/Snap/Bloodbraid/Footfalls is enough to be considered a wincon. I could definitely be wrong though, it's the sort of thing that I'll figure out with testing. Thanks again for the input!
