Dreadhorde Arcanist is perfect for this deck, genius. Would probably cut Rancor , Simic Charm and Kari Zev's Expertise for more copies of both Arcanist and Bloodbraid Elf . Maybe it could be good to add a couple of Faithless Looting to fuel Pteramander , pitch Crashing Footfalls and Ancestral Vision for Arcanist and setting up the "combo"?

This awesome. What about a few bounce spells to return Niv to your hand? The Planeshift cycles of bounce creatures like Cavern Harpy and Shivan Wurm would return Niv and give you more finishers. The guild charms which bounce things like Orzhov Charm and Simic Charm can provide extra utility. There is also Cloud Cover which is just a cool card in my opinion.

I don't see the "Devastating Speed" portion of the deck. You have no 1 drops. An INFECT deck has NO 1 drops. That's not "Devastating Speed", that's derogatory and slow. You need, Need, NEED Glistener Elf . Or at the very least, Blight Mamba .
Instead of using black kill spells, use spells like Distortion Strike or Aqueous Form to get past blockers. You can also use cards like Simic Charm or Apostle's Blessing to get past blockers or defend against trouble creatures. Vines of Vastwood , Apostle's Blessing , Simic Charm , and Veil of Secrecy can do multiple things as well as protecting your creatures. Pendelhaven is an important part of any Infect deck.
Black is just too slow for even a mildly competitive Infect deck, because EVERYTHING is at least 3 mana, which for an Infect deck is WAAY to expensive mana wise.

To be honest, for Modern, this is low on one drops. I'd probably run Perimeter Captain Dragon's Eye Sentry or Stalwart Shield-Bearers to give you more options on turn 1. High Alert might be a better backup plan than Assault Formation but there isn't much in it, it's certainly worth testing. People do play Twisted Image which is more or less a kill spell against your deck. I think you need to fit a protection spell in Heroic Intervention or Simic Charm would work.
Fortunately no-one plays Mannichi, the Fevered Dream , as this is essentially a board wipe against your deck. On that note, I hope this comment was helpful, good luck brewing your deck.

Nobody plays it but Mannichi, the Fevered Dream would wipe out your entire barricade. More seriously people do play Twisted Image which is more or less a kill spell against your deck. I think you need to fit a protection spell in Heroic Intervention or Simic Charm , I'd cut Wall of Mist, since its a vanilla wall. I would generally play more 1 drops than 2 drops, maybe Dragon's Eye Sentry instead of Wall of Tanglecord? Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Seems like you may run into an issue of not having enough walls. It sucks to have your commander out but no walls in hand to play+draw a card. Need to keep that cycle going.

Used to play Vorel back in the day for a bit, some cards I can recommend for control elements are Nature's Claim, Natural State, Delay (yes you can proliferate these counters as well), Disallow, and Voidslime.
I would advise using stax pieces as it would dilute the deck a bit more. I would say to stay in more of the control route. Although here are some stax options you can consider, Frozen AEther, Root Maze, Mana Web, Back to Basics, Mindlock Orb, Rising Waters, Squeeze, Stasis, Hall of Gemstone, Manglehorn, and Thorn of Amethyst.
Hope that helps!
