To link a card use two rectangular brackets before and after the cardname like [[CARDNAME]]. Cards with an apostrophe in it's name can't be displayed as links. And this also only works in the comments.

The problem with aggressive decks is that they end in topdeck-modus very fast and have to rely on what they draw. Here Viscera Seer shines as it let's you put an undesired card, e.g. a land, on the bottom of your library. I wouldn't use 4 of him in the deck but 2-3could be an option.

[[Perilous Myr]] has one big advantage over e.g. [[Tattered Mummy]], [[Ruthless Ripper]] or [[Vampire Neonate]]: It can serve as additional, most important colourless, removal. [[Undying Evil]] depends on it's usage but here this might be limited. I normally would use it to protect a precious creature from getting killed in combat or due to a removal. The problem here is that only [[Nantuko Husk]] makes sense to use it on as other important creatures will likely have a +1/+1 counter on it. Personally I would remove [[Kjeldoran Dead]] for the Angler as you can't play around the sacrifice ability. You loose a creature that let's you sacrifice something but you gain the ability to use your graveyard as resource.

For instant speed you have [[Tragic Slip]], a very potent removal even able to handle a [[Blightsteel Colossus]] (Outside pauper of course ;) ) and you should have enough sacrifice creatures to activate that morbid when you really need it. So the big question is: Do you really need the instant speed?

One thing that also came to my mind was to replace white as second colour with red to give the deck an extra speed/ sacrifice boost. Or do a second deck with Rakdos colours.

[[Viscera Seer]] can provide you with a little card advantage by controlling what you draw next. [[Thraben Inspector]] is also a good card for, only drawback is that you can sacrifice him only once. [[Captain's Call]] is a little bit on the high-side with it's cc4 but it provides you with 3 tokens to be sacrificed.
Personally I would change from [[Kjeldoran Dead]] to [[Gurmag Angler]] and use [[Bone Splinters]] instead of [[Final Payment]].
If you need some life-gain consider [[Sylvok Lifestaff]], rescued me some games in my sacrifice deck.

If you want to stick to the theme...[[Knight of Sursi]].

A card overlooked by many Exalted decks is [[Sigil of Valor]], which is basically a cheap [[Sublime Archangel]] you have to equip to benefit from.

You normally do this in competitive deck to thin out the number of lands that you can draw. A single search-land, like [[Evolving Wilds]] or [[Flooded Strand]], removes 2 lands from your library and thus increases the chance of drawing other stuff that you need. Only drawback when you do it with "cheap" search-lands is that you get a tapped land, which might slow you down.

6yo at the computer?
I've read that it is intended as a one-drop before I postet the suggestion. The question is if the creator of the deck see's enough advantage/ potential in Edge of the Divinity to have a cc2 creature in the deck over a cc1.

What about [[Mourning Thrull]] instead of [[Vault Skirge]] and [[Edge of the Divinity]] as enchantment?

Lets say you cast a [[Lightning Bolt]] and copy it with a [[Twincast]].
Stack (Top Down): [[Twincast]] -> [[Lightning Bolt]]
Now you use [[Riku of Two Reflections]]'s ability to create a copy of [[Twincast]] and target the initial Twincast with it.
Stack: [[Twincast]] (Copy) -> [[Twincast]] (Original) -> [[Lightning Bolt]]
The copy resolves, targeting the original, creating a new copy
Stack: [[Twincast]] (Copy2) -> [[Twincast]] (Original) -> [[Lightning Bolt]]
The copy resolves again (and so on), targeting the original, creating a new copy
Stack: [[Twincast]] (Copy3) -> [[Twincast]] (Original) -> [[Lightning Bolt]]
To end this infinite loop you have to target the innitial spell, [[Lightning Bolt]] in this case, and end up with basically 3 Bolts in the end.
Stack: [[Twincast]] (CopyX targeting Bolt now) -> [[Twincast]] (Original, targeting Bolt) -> [[Lightning Bolt]]

The main problem here is: Copied spells aren't cast and thus don't count towards storm counter.
From the original rules: 706.10. To copy a spell, activated ability, or triggered ability means to put a copy of it onto the stack; a copy of a spell isn't cast and a copy of an activated ability isn't activated.

Hate to destroy the idea, but this doesn't work as intended.

Personally I would remove [[Sanguine Guard]] for [[Sigil of Valor]], which would also make this deck modern legal. I also would replace/ sideboard [[Highborn Ghoul]] with e.g. [[Bearer of Silence]] or [[Heir of Falkenrath]] as intimidate is a rather weak sort of evasion in my opinion.

Personally I would remove [[Gold Myr]] and [[Leaden Myr]] for something that helps you to stay alive as this deck look rather slow to me. The mana-fixing can be done with dual-lands like [[Isolated Chapel]].
As for the backup plan of this deck, the empire artifacts, I would suggest using something to untap those to use them at least twice a turn. [[Synod Artificer]] would be an option, but [[Unwinding Clock]] and [[Voltaic Construct]] could also be of interest here.
[[Freed from the Real]] only works on creatures but can convert your [[Royal Assassin]] into a killing machine.
I would also put [[Immortal Servitude]] into the sideboard and use some artifact-protection like [[Darksteel Forge]] or some control-spells like [[Mana Leak]], [[Rune Snag]] or [[Stoic Rebuttal]].
[[Storage Matrix]] can be an easy way to stall your opponent, especially if you can play around it by tapping it before your turn.

I would also think about adding some dual-lands to the deck to make the mana-base a little bit more stable. Lands that produce red and white or green mana could be an idea: (https://www.mtgvault.com/cards/search/?q=%7bR%7d+%7bW%7d&searchtype=text&t=Land&l=Modern&ps=20)
[[Boros Garrison]], [[Clifftop Retreat]], [[Temple of Triumph]] or simple search-lands like [[Evolving Wilds]]

2 rectangular brackets before and after the cardname: [[]]
Cardnames with an apostrophe in it ( like [[Abuna's Chant]] ) won't work properly. I also think that this only works in the comments and not in the description part.

[[Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch]] and [[Echoing Truth]] maybe?

[[Boros Reckoner]] could be a modern-legal replacement for [[Mogg Maniac]] and [[Wall of Essence]] for [[Wall of Hope]].
If you're using mass-removal in combination with creatures like [[Hornet Nest]] then some haste-buffs like [[Burst of Speed]] or [[Emblem of the Warmind]] could help you to take advantage of the situation.
[[Keen Sense]] let's you draw a card whenever one of your creatures deal damage to an opponent...not combat damage but ANY damage! [[Ripjaw Raptor]] could also be an option to draw cards when your opponent attacks.

Why [[Diamond Mare]], [[Hundred-Handed One]] and [[Feed the Clan]]?
The Mare could be replaced with [[Anointer Priest]], [[Auriok Champion]], [[Essence Warden]], [[Soul Warden]], Soul's Attendant or [[Suture Priest]] if you really want a creature. Advantage of those is that they provide you with life/ creature instead of life/spell, making e.g. [[Hordeling Outburst]] worth 3 life instead of 1, drawback is that that they still can be killed by any [[Shock]], [[Lightning Bolt]], [[Doom Blade]] and so on. Dragon's Claw would be less vulnerable but also less potent. [[Feed the Clan]] could also be replaced with one of the creatures mentioned.
If you have [[Krenko, Mob Boss]] on the field why use a defensive creature like [[Hundred-Handed One]]? With 12 goblin-producing sorcery's it's rather unlikely that Krenko will enter the battlefield as single, lone, goblin. With a [[Goblin Chieftain]] on the field you can even start using his ability instantly, so why would you want to play a creature like the [[Hundred-Handed One]] now? I would rather use cards that would either speed up my game-plan, like [[Skirk Prospector]], or something that would allow me to re-use Krenko's ability, like [[Thousand-Year Elixir]] or [[Magewright's Stone]].

Personally I have Krenko in a mono red deck becuse he is silly enough on it's own, but with the support of some goblins he can get sick even faster. Also Krenko has the same mana-costs as [[Anointed Procession]] and [[Parallel Lives]] so if you have Krenko and one of the enchatments on the hand and have 4 mana to cast you will have to wait another turn (2 if you don't have [[Goblin Chieftain]] on the field) before you can make use of Krenko.

Personally I always use [[Rune Snag]] over [[Mana Leak]].
[[Last Thoughts]] can give you some card-advantage, [[Thieves' Fortune]] could also be an option if you want to stick to the rogues/ unblockable. [[Phyresis]] could be a nasty surprise for your opponent especially with [[Inkfathom Witch]] + [[Stinkdrinker Bandit]]. [[Whispersilk Cloak]] would also be an option to provide your creatures with some protection, tough making them not target able by [[Stinkdrinker Bandit]]'s ability and further slice spells.
The only creatures profiting from [[Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive]]'s ability is Tetsuko himself and [[Stinkdrinker Bandit]]. Personally I would use another 2-4 counterspells or unblockable creatures like [[Dimir Infiltrator]] or [[Tormented Soul]] instead.
As sideboard option I would suggest [[Echoing Truth]] which can make quick work of token/ swarm based decks

I'm missing a deck and how-to play description.
Most equipment decks tend to try to be as fast as possible so [[Armory of Iroas]] is not a real good equipment in my opinion.
[[Trusty Machete]] can be replaced with [[Bonesplitter]]. Costs one mana less to equip but brings one toughness less, which can be ignored as your main beaters have first/ double strike.
I would also remove/ sideboard [[Brass Squire]] for one reason: How often does the situation you described ("gets killed before combat on my opponent's turn") happen? If this doesn't occur once or twice each and every game then it's a dead card with (nearly) no use. Yes, you can play and equip e.g. a [[Loxodon Warhammer]] instantly on turn 3/4 but you need to equip at least 2 of them to a creature to make it worth the mana-costs of [[Brass Squire]]. If you want an alternative for the squire you can take a look at [[Etched Champion]] (which isn't budget at all), [[Ardent Recruit]], [[Auriok Glaivemaster]], [[Kor Duelist]] or similar creatures. If you fear the chance of your creature getting removed then [[Swiftfoot Boots]] (again not budget), or [[Mask of Avacyn]] could be of interest to you.
You could also take a look at the following cards: [[Cranial Plating]], [[Darksteel Citadel]] and [[Dispatch]].

[[Cloudshift]] and/ or [[Ghostly Flicker]] to protect/ reuse your splicers could be an idea.

[[Gavony Township]] can also do the trick, but I know what you're meaning as I had the same concerns.
[[Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit]] could also be an option.
