I have been having a problem in my play group where I am consistently beating my friends in games and games are just too easy. I figured that I was good enough to go to an FNM but I was informed that my deck couldn't be played in standard, however it could be played in modern. Could you tell me if my deck looks ready for a modern FNM?

This deck looks fun to play, but if you go to a Modern tournament expect to get your ass handed to you by a variety of decks and archetypes. The curve is just too high, but I enjoy this type of thing. If you find a rural enough LGS you may even be able to place well.
You appear red heavy.
It would be a shame if someone were to...
Assuming you're not trolling... Modern is known as the turn 4 format for a reason. The vast majority of games end with one player dead or facing imminent defeat by turn 4, hell Infect (which is a 5 dollar deck if you build it on the cheap) can kill on turn 2 with a good hand. Your quaint CIPT lands will allow you to play maybe three spells before you get rushed off the table, combo'ed out by splintertwin, get your landbase rekt by ghost quarters or outramped by tron.

But feel free to try it at your next Modern tournament, I'm sure there will be some 11 year old running a mono green 73 card deck you can beat.
A third turn board state.
Both players could win on their next turn.
please watch all videos and view websites these fine mtg card hounds tell young one
>>44634129 here's a very brief description of every deck named by >>44635806, followed by a link to a deck building guide.
Red Deck Wins
Play cheap spells with the number 3 on them until you've counted to 20. (a.k.a. Burn)
Cheap artifacts, and cards that like it when you have lots of artifacts.
Play efficient cards across 3 colors (Black/Red/Green).
Play efficient cards across 3 colors (Green/Black/White).
Play efficient creatures across 3 colors (Red/Green/White)
Play cheap merfolk, cards that support merfolk, and cards that slow down your opponent.
Play creatures that prevent your opponent from doing things.
Play lands that generate lots of mana. Then cast strong cards with huge mana costs (Karn, Emrakul, etc).
Play efficient cards that slow down your opponent in 3 colors (Blue/Black/Red).
Reveal the top card of your opponents deck, and mill it every time it's remotely useful.
Have an infinite number of creatures on turn 4.
Untap lands that enter play tapped. Hijinx and ramp ensues.
Cast 1-2 drop infect creatures, then throw several pump spells at them and swing for lethal.
Ramp to the moon and back with cheap elves that generate mana.
No ad nauseam? Its supposed to be a tier 2 deck but I really don't see that many people play it or talk about it. Why don't more people play it, its a pretty strong deck.
>>44637146 I'm 44637086/44637103, but >>44635806 was someone else.
I was explaining, >>44635806's list on the offhand chance that OP isn't trolling.
Play pic related and draw your entire deck. Then count to 20.
Also, missing Lantern Control Primer:
OK, I play boggles so let's go with that.
Turn 1 play a forest or fetch, play slippery bogle
Turn 2 I (ideally) lay a plains or another fetch, and can then cast two 1 mana enchantments or one 2 mana one. Let's assume I'm playing a slower deck and want raw damage, so I'll put any combination of rancor/ethereal armor/spider umbra/hyena umbra. So that's turn two swinging for 3-5 damage
Turn 3 is where it gets harder to say, but at that moment I just barf out auras and can usually swing for a solid 10-15, and I can regularly deal lethal then, assuming no massive roadblocks
Your deck is too slow for modern unfortunately, and it would like get steamrolled unless you somehow get lucky.
I think that it would be best for you to either
1) Save up and purchase a tournament-level Modern deck
2) Get into Standard with your friends and help them get better at the game as well
