Leyline of Abundance
If Leyline of Abundance is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it on the battlefield.
Whenever you tap a creature for mana, gain an additional .
: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.

From the looks of it, budget isn't a great concern for you, so why not run some Moxen? Mox Amber, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox, and Mox Diamond. Jeweled Lotus is ok too, but it is a bit lost on Kinnan. Lotus Petal and Elvish Spirit Guide are more budget, tbh.
I would recommend focusing more on creature/artifact ramp than land ramp, as Kinnan will reward you handsomely for those and not so much for land ramp.

As has already been said before, infect decks generally want to be just running creatures that can deal infect damage - you currently have a LOT of cards that have no place in an infect deck, namely Alloy Myr, Coretapper, Darksteel Myr, Evolution Sage, Obelisk Spider, Shimmer Myr, Titan Forge and Myr Matrix are all creatures (or make creatures) that are completely useless for an infect strategy.
You seem to have a lot of cards that are just 1-ofs and 2-ofs here. That's going to lead to a really inconsistent (and so weaker) deck. Aim to mostly play playsets of cards if you can.
You seem to have a bunch of cards that have no real place in either Infect or Modern in general. Mana rocks like Dimir Signet, Coalition Relic, Myr Reservoir certainly have no real place in an Infect deck, and don't really make it into any Modern deck unless they're doing something particularly janky. Leyline of Abundance, Force of Vigor, and Dimir Charm are all also really weird spell choices.
You have nothing to do one turn 1. Infect decks are known for being fast and reliably threatening lethal on turn-2 or turn-3. Not being able to cast something on turn-1 reliably is going to put you ages behind and put your opponent at a huge advantage. You should have at least 8-12 cards you can cast on turn-1 (so far you have 0, meaning you're always starting a turn behind your opponent). Furthermore, sooo many of your lands enter play tapped that you won't even be able to reliably do something on turn 2... fix that landbase!
Your mana curve goes waaay too high. I would suggest ditching all of your 4 and 5 mana cards, and at least halving your amount of 3-mana cards (if not removing them entirely).
You're running waaay too many creatures for infect, and you don't have nearly enough ways to pump them. This is going to cause you all sorts of problems. Infect creatures are generally weak, so you want to aim to end a game quickly, and going-wide doesn't help you achieve that.
An example of where to start with infect is here - this page lists 3 infect decks of various budgets, and should give you a good idea of the direction the deck should head in.

Leyline of Abundance does a lot for crab rave.
While wake thresher is traditional, once you have alternative untap options, inspired becomes an option, Disciple of Deceit for tutoring, Grimoire Thief and whatnot. Lotta combo outlets from the classic Pili-Pala/Grand Architect style.

Well, personally I'd add more untap aspects. Awakening, Seedborn Muse, Wilderness Reclamation + Ashaya, Soul of the Wild - is stonks. Also, Leyline of Abundance and Quest for Renewal are sweet tech too - heck I may even brew this lol.

Paradise Mantle would definitely be a solid option as a free card that could potentially do something for you, but I'm struggling to think up a way to get that one mana without lands to equip, since Mox Opal and Simian Spirit Guide are both banned. Leyline of Abundance might be worth considering as well, but it's probably not that amazing, since you'd only have the mantle to enable it.
Ok, now that you can produce some mana, you could potentially do some really stupid stuff, not sure how far down the rabbit hole you want to go though.
You could also now play Aether Vial to cheat stuff in.
There's lots of convoke cards begging to be broken as well, and you can get black creatures out in the form of Salvage Titan, so that's just something to think about.
If you were willing to play some of the flip lands that are technically not lands, I'm sure you could do some crazy convoluted stuff and win with Laboratory Maniac without lands, but it would no longer be an affinity deck, and you could argue it did technically have lands. I'm thinking convoke Endless Obedience into Angel of Glory's Rise after basically dumping your deck into the graveyard.
That's a far cry from the current build of the deck, so I'm just mentioning it instead of suggesting it.
