Hey Foxfire_Celest, here is the probability so you know.
- Assumes you haven't already drawn an equipment or aura in opening hand or turn 2 draw
- Assumes the population of the deck is 91 (turn 1) or 90 (turn 2)
It has a Turn 1 kill line, an 8-card god hand, adding a Berserk and a Mox Opal to the above, and a random Grafted Exoskeleton rate of 6.5%. I can't see a 7-card here. Berserk is required because it would only be Power 3 + Exo 2 + Eminence 3 = 8 infect without. An alternative would also be Rancor and a Mox Opal, which puts you in a nice T2 position to eliminate another opponent potentially, Berserk would kill the cat.

Tropical_December excellently done! Don't know if I'd count Kefnet lol, and I already got Plains, but I'm super impressed with your eye catching the birds in Plains against the backdrop of sand! Good job

Not already mentioned - Bad River, Cascading Cataracts has a silhouette of Kefnet, Desert of the True, Mutavault technically is a bird, Seaside Haven is a must play, Swarmyard can regenerate any prey. As for basics Island has a bird in the middle, Island has a good number of birds and is part of a panorama, not sure how to tag it but Secret Lair Godzilla Island has birds, Island, Island birds with a sunset, Island, Island, as for plains, Plains, Plains, Plains, Plains, Plains, and Plains.

Yay! I love dogs! I've been actually planning on making a dog deck myself, so I have a few thoughts. :)
First of all, let's start with the most important thing: basic lands. You NEED the dog art Plains from Jumpstart!! (You can see that art in your decklist by appending (JMP:45) after Plains.) Yes, they're actually a couple bucks apiece, so you might not want to make ALL 23 Plains that art.... but at least a couple. :)
Alright, on to the actual important things. LoL
Speaking of lands, just want to quickly mention Animal Sanctuary. I know it's not that great, but it does have synergy with your dogs and provides a late-game mana sink if you're out of cards.
This is essentially a white weenie deck, dog-themed, so I'd advise cutting the high-costing angels (especially Adarkar Valkyrie, since she doesn't even do anything the turn she hits) in favor of some more aggressively costed dogs. You really don't have any way to ramp into them, so 6 drops are just going to be too slow. (Shalai might make the cut, because 4 CMC is more doable and hexproof can be amazing in certain matchups, but she's sideboard at best.)
Encampment Keeper is a decent turn 1 play that can also close out games if you last long enough to use his tap ability. Since this deck wants to be attacking with a lot of dogs, Boros Mastiff rewards you with a little life (or a lot if you have your anthem effects in play).
There's no way to tutor up Pack Leader in white. You could splash black for Grim Tutor (which gives you access to Banehound, a solid 1-drop, and Kunoros, Hound of Athreos, solid sideboard hate against graveyard decks). But honestly I don't think it's worth it. First of all, that will make the manabase necessarily expensive. Second, with 8 copies of an anthem effect between Pack Leader and Honor of the Pure, you're bound to hit at least one if not two of them in the average game.
Lastly, just a quick note: I noticed you have a couple dog cards in your Maybeboard (Supply Runners, Trusty Retriever, Release the Dogs) but sadly they aren't Modern legal, so no point considering them unless the format doesn't actually matter to you that much.
Hope something in that wall of text helps! +1 from me!

I love the idea of the deck! I think I'll try it myself!
Do you plan to improve on your mana base? Myself, dry-playtesting, I find it missing Swamps in most cases. The most mana-demanding Murderous Rider and its Adventure takes 2x with CMC=3, whereas any spell that demands 2x is only at CMC=4 and higher.
I think you could and swap additional Plains into Castle Locthwain. Fabled Passage should find its place here too. This, with a full set of Temple of Silence instead of Scoured Barrens will help with the late game mana flood!
What do you think?

I would argue it homogenizes rather than diversifies--it's just another copy of Mana Crypt to some strategies, and a serious barrier to entry for many people. and I would also argue that two, even three-color decks could seriously consider running the Lotus (I'm speaking from perhaps a more casual standpoint). Here's the playpattern, the example being my Atla Palani, Nest Tender deck: T1--Mountain, suspend Greater Gargadon, pass. T2--Plains, Jeweled Lotus, crack it for Green, tap out and cast my commander. T3--Forest, activate my commander for an egg, cast Worldly Tutor for an Avacyn, Angel of Hope or something equally scary, sac the egg, and put her into play... and I'll remind you again, on turn three. And that's THREE color. AND I NEED TO PAY HOW MUCH MONEY TO DO THAT AGAIN??
