@AntaresRex, you may want to try a list similar to what @BloodyRabbit_01 posted not too long ago. If you have budget concerns sub Scalding Tarns for Flooded Strands. They are suboptimal as B is likely your main color, but Bx fetches, the "better" suboptimal choice, are at least double the price of Flooded Strands.
Definitely update the sideboard to reflect the current meta and your playstyle.
Ideally you want to invest in Snapcasters and K Commands in the long run. Even 2 or 3 Snapcasters will help you grind and K Command is pretty decent when everyone is jamming Stoneforge Mystic.
Faced Izzet Phoenix (2-1), Bant Spirits (2-0), G-Tron (2-0) and the new AltarVine (2-1).
I’ll state that again: if we want to grind, it’s better to play a different deck. We have to kill the opponent fast while disrupting him. Nothing more than that. I had some very ankward results with the ‘standàrd’ list (a pair of 2-3) cause Snapcaster Mage feels so out of the meta right now, between him being slow and the amount of Surgical/Relic maindecked.
List feels good. Dunno if it’s better than the last one I tried (heavy on Delve threats) but it runs smoothly and bypass Grave hate.

I have the K commands yet.
I played mardu pyromancer and after the looting ban i went on nahiri/emrakul and wanted to build the classic gds but i don't wanted to spend €150/200 on snapcasters yet, maybe later.
As fetchlands i will use bloodstained mire and deltas. Without the snapcost i can go with night's whispers covering the life loss of a fetch and was thinking on YP but i can think on kiln fiends
Inspired by the recent Channel Fireball article by Jonathan Melamed, I'm restructuring my sideboard to try Ashiok, Dream Render and more Abrades. Moreover, 4 Stubs main seems like where the deck wants to be. Here's the list I'm planning on piloting:
Liked your list and I tried a very similar list (exchanging one Jace VP by The Royal Scions) at FNM this weekend and it doesn't work well for me. Perhaps was my fault, perhaps took wrong decisions...I do not know. I comment a bit: in general the Rotting Regisaur is a powerful creature, and very impressive at turn 3. The forced discard can be problematic because you cannot keep cards in your hand (neither a Temur Battle Rage)so you must play all cards as soon as possible.putting together the discards plus no bubbles at all left you behind in cards.All your cards in the graveyard are useless except with the Unearth (that is great, I agree and opponent was surprised to have the Regisaur back in the battlefield) but no use of the GY cards for delve / delirium... So, for sure I need to pilot it better but perhaps some changes could be required.
In any case the play was funny.
I'm running a JVP and a Royal Scions in the main then a 2nd royal scions in the side and both cards perform really well for me.
Scions is super good IMO because they fill multiple great roles in the deck. they can perform as "extra" copies of tbr, except they do more in a sense. they can also help you get out of spots where you spin your wheels with the loot ability. They can also pump your snaps when you get to that point
