Myr Matrix is indestructible. ("Destroy" effects and lethal damage don't destroy it.)
All Myr creatures get +1/+1.
: Create a 1/1 Myr artifact creature token.

Personally, i’d ditch all of Remove Soul (too situational), Silent Departure (bad card that gives you card-disadvantage), Anointed Procession (too slow, limited usefulness in this deck), Myr Matrix (far too weak for its mana cost), and Myr Reservoir (not particularly useful).
cards that might be worth considering include Welding Jar (your mana dorks aren’t cheap to cast so you don’t really want them to die), Aether Spellbomb (can act as a cantrip or used to stall), Thoughtcast (card advantage). I’d also suggest running the full playset of Emry, and also raising your land count to around 23 (20 feels waaay too low considering how dependant you’ll be on playing lands for the first 3-4 turns)

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.

Why no Myr Matrix? It combos perfectly with Palladium Myr and Myr Galvanizer for infinite colorless Mana and infinite colorless 1/1 myrs. Another idea is Prototype Portal and Steel Overseer to make an additional copy of whatever you need, plus putting +1/+1 counters on all Artifact creatures every time you tap him (though the downside to him is that he's not a Myr).

I think you need more token producers that double as manasinks. Using Radha-ability mana on cards feels like you'll end up overextending fast. Centaur Glade is not bad. Dragon Roost is expensive but may work. Myr Matrix is resilient. Night Soil doubles as GY hate. Ant Queen , Jade Mage , Soul of Zendikar etc.

I build a $20-18ish Myr Tribal deck, it hade the galvinizers infinite combo combined with Myr Battlesphere , Myr Matrix , Myr Turbine , and a few others like Myr Reservoir . It was pretty fun, and decently competitive. Definitly add Tomb of the Spirit Dragon !

Yeah those enchantments would help to make more immediate use of your mana. You don't play anything in your first main-phase, attack and get a lot of mana, then in your second main-phase you cast a hydra with all your mana and immediately get to fireball someone! Otherwise you just end up passing the turn and getting your creature Doom Blade-ed or something.
Another option would be to put in mana-sinks. For example:
Rhonas the Indomitable and Nylea, God of the Hunt enable to to sink the mana generated during the attack step to pump your attackers, even after your opponent decides his blocks to mess up combat math.
Token producer sinks let you use the mana to make blockers, which then attack next turn to continue the cycle! You can choose creatures like Ant Queen, Tilonalli's Summoner, and/or relatively more resilient options like Centaur Glade, Myr Matrix, Dragon Roost (last one may be too slow though!).
