Hi! First of all, I really like your list! It's a pretty cool list, pretty close to what I want to build! I just have a couple questions/suggestions.
Have you tried Seasoned Pyromancer ? That card seems pretty good against control, I almost want to call it Red Lingering Souls, in that it's something that gives you threats from the graveyard haha
On the other hand, I don't quite dig the Kozilek's Return in the sideboard. I would play either Pyroclasm or Sweltering Suns . I do love the Guttural Response though! I totally forgot that card existed! hahaha

I don't think Mardu are the worst colors for lockdown decks. However, as Xianling69 said, Mogis is way. Too. Slow.
Tibalt's Trickery is bad unless you use it for a cheeky combo of some sort (I'll let you Google how it can be abused but it then requires you to build the whole deck around it).
Divine Gambit is awful aswell. Modern isn't fair. Removing a pesky creature to let your opponent play a bigger threat (Teferi, Emrakul, you name it) for free is just not a deal you want in this format.
All in all you lack wincons. Remove specific removals for mass removals and add in tough-to-answer threats like planeswalkers or built-in protections (Baneslayer Angel or Stormbreath Dragon) or card-advantage creating cards like Seasoned Pyromancer or Glorybringer.

Cut Wraith, bring 4 Monastery Swiftspear instead, as it helps enabling Scourge of the Skyclaves so much. Also, 1-2 Temur Battle Rage are a must as this card can end games so quickly, especially with Scourge. Make Lurrus your companion, trust me, you don't want to randomly draw him in this kinda deck. Your sideboard can still play Ashiok & Engineer. I'm not sold on Fulminator Mage anyways, Cleansing Wildfire or Blood Moon seem better to me, Wildfire is key in Belcher or Oops MU, Blood Moon out of the board can just win you games on the spot (Field of the Dead, Valakut, Tron). Surgical Extraction is another card I wouldn't play, at least not mainboard. There are many matchups where it's just dead and you already have some graveyard hate in the sideboard. Bring your Mishra's Bauble count up to 4 and maybe add 2 Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger in place of the mainboard Lurrus. Last but not least you might wanna try 2 Kozilek's Return in the sideboard, as it helps beating wider strategies (Field of the Dead, Seasoned Pyromancer, Young Pyromancer) or creatures like Auriok Champion that your deck might struggle with otherwise.

Hey AT23, I like your deck! I have a few suggestions -
Since you are losing a lot of life from the fetchlands, Thoughtseize , Dark Confidant , Bitterblossom (4 copies may be too many), etc., you could run Death's Shadow as an additional finisher. If you dip more into burn with Bump in the Night , maybe even Scourge of the Skyclaves would work. Shadows would add more late-game power other than Kroxa.
I would also drop the Magus of the Moon and run a full set of Blood Moon . I know you’re trying to run multiple versions of this effect, but you may end up with a lot of dead cards, and the Magus is more subject to removal ( Anger of the Gods , etc).

Yeah I tried playing a pioneer rakdos pyromancer deck (partly inspired by this deck, although they're pretty different) that sort of leans into the graveyard with Kroxa, Stitcher's Supplier, Village Rites (honestly such a good card, you can even sac a young pyromancer to this in response to removal for 2 cards plus another 1/1), Claim / Fame, and Dreadhorde Arcanist. Losing Seasoned Pyromancer and some other more niche inclusions like Ransack the Lab and Unearth isn't great, but what can you do.

Hi mtgplayer100 !
Thanks for your suggestions ! I added two lands and it seems to be better now.
Seasoned Pyromancer... i love this dude and play him in all my other Rakdos decks in Modern, but i'm not sure here ; it seems to be a nonbo with Ensnaring Bridge. Furthermore, i already have a lot of three drops... As i'm sot sure about Simian Spirit Guide, maybe i will try Spyro instead.
Do you play Prison decks ? How does Seasoned Pyromancer performs for you ?
