Cool Deck, +1 :)
4 Selfless Spirit seem too many considering that there are currently not many mass-removal spells in the meta, you could exchange 2 for Unsettled Mariner.
With 3 Cemetery Illuminator already in the maindeck you have good graveyard hate, I recommend cutting the 3rd Remorseful Cleric for a Blossoming Calm to improve your matchup against burn.

wallisface: I agree with you on the point that modern is currently quite healthy.
Regarding your argument of reprinting: It is just not enough to reprint these cards, but they need to be reprinted in a lower rarity.
It's nice that expensive cards like: Wrenn and Six, Force of Negation, Seasoned Pyromancer, Cavern of Souls, Emrakul, Kozilek, Ulamog etc. get reprinted in Double Masters 2022 if they get reprinted as Mythic Rares, but all in all that just feels like a drop in the bucket.

I think WotC has lost track of what they want to do with modern, there are a lot of cards on the banlist because they can be cast without using mana: Once Upon a Time, Mental Misstep, Gitaxian Probe, Dread Return, Blazing Shoal and Eye of Ugin making your Eldrazi-Spells free.
Legacy should be the format of free spells; Not modern and printing the Evoke Elementals in a Set designed for modern contradicts that philosophy. The Evoke cost should have included //// in addition to the exiling of the card in hand.
Regarding the pricing: I agree on your point that there are too many mythic rare pushed card that make the mondern High-Tier decks too expensive and WotC should change something about that. The pricing and the fact that Modern went from a turn 4 format to a turn 3 - 2 1/2 format makes Pioneer more and more attractive.
Regarding bans: there are currently 2 engines that dominate the Metagame:
The 4c Elementals using Omnath, Locus of Creation and Wrenn and Six for Value and the free Evoke Elementals for Interaction represented in the 2 decks 4c Elementals and 4c Blink:
I think Omnath needs to go for the following reasons: it replaces itself, provides t5 enough mana to also play Fury or Solitude, can be pitches for the Evoke costs and gains life against aggro decks. That's just too much for a single card, especially if you compare it to our Lord and Savior.
The other is the UR engine around Ragavan, DRC and Expressive Iteration presented in decks like Murktide and Death's Shadow:
The problem with these decks is that they are too effective in what they do in comparison to decks of the same arctype not running that engine, so they just need to be turned down a bit.
For this reason i'd like to see Mishra's Bauble go: Pushing cards like DRC, Expressive Iteration, Unholy Heat and Ledger Shredder from "good" to "too good" makes this card a reasonable ban without destroying the decks.
- On a personal note: I'd like to have Teferi, Time Raveler banned. Interaction is what makes this game fun and having a card that says "I play magic, you play Hearthstone" is the opposite of that.
Thank you for coming to my Ted talk.
