Welcome to Modern. Your MB looks ok, so I'll give you some SB ideas.
Auriok Champion: Good against DS and burn
Kor Firewalker: Excellent vs burn, decent vs DS
Prismatic Ending: I know you already have Path in your SB, but you might want to experiment with this. It hits all nonland permanents so there might be matchups where it's relevant for you (e.g., opp plays Ensnaring Bridge or something) since you are a 3 color deck technically
Torpor Orb: Great against MH2 elementals and soul sisters.

Personally I would trade out Accorder's Shield for Torpor Orb. I would trade out Pilgrim's Eye and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker for Hushwing Gryff and Tocatli Honor Guard (I know, Tiana is really cool, but she is only hitting equipment in your deck, you're not running as much equipment as a full equipment Voltron deck, and you'd have to drop her for 5 mana then find a way to protect her for her ability to work and you're only running 3 cards that offer protection with Greaves, Cloak, and your instant Chance for Glory).
You don't need to trade them all out, just some suggestions of what I'd personally do if I was putting ETB protection in.

I think Thassa's Oracle is a great example
This card is so powerful that more then half of the turn 0-3 win cons in CEDH depend on it.
yet Opt will out perform it, if you put it in just any deck that is not designed to deck itself
and if your play group got sick of your combos and started consistently running Hushwing Gryff or any other similar effects Hushbringer, Tocatli Honor Guard, Torpor Orb, Overwhelming Splendor (just to name a couple), Well then the win con just became a lost con
i'll stop now, because i don't want to ramble myself into an off topic debate. i'm just trying say that picking cards that function well with your deck and your friends is much more important then any online statistic so when you find a card that you love and works amazing in your games don't let yourself be bothered if online trys to tell you its not that good.

Torpor Orb, Hushbringer, Hushwing Gryff, and Tocatli Honor Guard for protection. Plus, Torpor Orb will trigger metalcraft and is easy to tutor for. Hushbringer is probably the best creature version of it to run, but something can be said for Hushwing Gryff's flash ability. The honor guard is just your budget option.
I used to play Allies vs a Jor Kadeen deck and once I got Tuk-Tuk out I'd completely shut down their deck for the rest of the game through multiple ETB triggers destroying artifacts. The only thing they non-bo with in your deck is Hangarback Walker, since everything else I see is on-death or on-attack triggers.

Leo_LordOfThePit thank you for commenting.
I agree that Seasoned Pyromancer is too good to pass up without a budget restriction. The reason it's not here is because this is mostly a manabase upgrade from a budget deck I've been brewing. I'll eventually get around to making a true non-budget version.
A better version of this deck would probably feature Seasoned Pyromancer , Liliana of the Veil , Thoughtseize , Collective Brutality , Bloodghast making the +2 from Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip much better. The problem I foresee is the number of humans dwindling too much making Winota, Joiner of Forces worse. Depending on the creature package Xathrid Necromancer should also be switched out for Teysa, Orzhov Scion .
The reason for the Tocatli Honor Guard is because exiling effects are very effective against this deck and a lot of these effects are creature etb based so they should really be in the 75. They are in the mainboard as a metagame call, maybe a wrong call, but if those effects aren't prominent deffinetly switch them with Rip Apart and Vanishing Verse .
I would love to see your version of the deck and how it fares. Best of luck.

I enjoy your content and deckbuilding very much and would like your input in one of my pet projects: Winota Aristocrats.
It's a budget mardu deck so the manabase is iffy but it still seems fairly powerfull. I'd love to see what you could do with the idea and no budget.
Also wondering if now is the right moment to maindeck Tocatli Honor Guard and score some free wins!

There’s enough similar creatures (depending on what format you’re in) to ensure consistency; Hushbringer , Tocatli Honor Guard and Hushwing Gryff . And of course, there’s Torpor Orb . Depending on what supporting spells you add, you could make a decent deck.
