Swords to Plowshares
Exile target creature. Its controller gains life equal to its power.

Yeah, as far as this deck goes, I've been working on assembling it for about 2 or so years now, and I keep telling myself, "This is it. I'm finally done." It used to be far more casual/slow. Lots of play testing went into figuring out the best cards for it, as well as lucky finds in new-to-me sets. The legacy version of it is not much different aside from lands and a few creatures. I do miss Edgewalker, Karakas, and Swords to Plowshares, but legacy is a far faster format than this deck could probably ever efficiently be. MTG has been a learning curve for me as I would still consider myself a new player. Fortunately, I had very knowlageable competitive mentors.
Do you have a link to the deck you're building? I would love to take a look at it! Pyre of Heroes accels in tribal decks. By the looks of Eldritch Evolution, it would be better in a deck with no specif creature type theme. Pending your colors, there might even be better options.

Can't wait to go against this with my Elminster faerie dragons xD

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.
You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.
I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:
I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!
Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD

Just on your comment of ”I know a lot of people (including this website apparently) say Swords to Plowshares and Demonic Tutor are illegal in modern, but they don't show up in the banned list for modern on the official MTG website, so I'm not really sure what's up with that and I decided to leave them in.” - they won’t show on the ban list because they were never legal in the modern format to be banned (they come from sets before moderns inception). If you want to check card legality find the card on the Gatherer website, and it will have a tab there which will show what formats the card is legal in.

Swords to Plowshares isn’t modern legal.
modern decks find it hard to justify running more than 4 cards costing 4 mana, and often run nothing above this. You’ve got 10 cards costing 4-or-more, which is far too high and will lead to very clunky plays.
Even if you lower the mana curve, you’re still going to need more lands, 18 is faar too low. As an example, Burn decks run 20 lands and only have spells costing 1-2 mana. I’d suggest going up to at least 23 lands.
I’m worried your deck is doing a “whole lot of nothing” without Tainted Remedy in play. Your ways to fetch it seem limited (and very mana-expensive). I’m concerned there’s going to be too many games where you just give your opponent a whole lot of life and then lose - especially if your opponents have any form of enchantment-removal and/or countermagic and/or hand-disruption

Welcome to Magic! I highly recommend watching this deck-building template from The Command Zone, it gives extremely helpful suggestions on how to put a deck together that will run smoothly and do what you want it to do:
Also, you could visit EDHREC to get some suggestions on what cards might be good in your deck based on what other people are playing.

Awesome deck, I think more board wipe protection would be good. Guardian of Faith would be perfect. Family's Favor could save dudes and draw cards if it sticks around. Veil of Summer would be great too. Maybe even toss in Pyroblast and/or Red Elemental Blast if you have a lot of blue in your meta. Also don't sleep on that spot removal, you never know when you'll need Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares.
