Divine Intervention: Everybody wins!
But seriously, maybe Celestial Convergence since no one attacks the grouphug player. At least in my experience. Also maybe Assault Formation to beat face with your commander? Another wincon is simply drawing everyone out.
Also, I would run more Counterspells. Giving people cards draws them into wincons/combos can end the game quick and you want to counter those. Other good counterspells are: Abjure, Absorb, Mindswipe, Ceremonious Rejection, Counterflux, Summary Dismissal, Cryptic Command, Desertion, Spelljack, Aethersnatch, and Mystic Confluence.

Duskmantle Guildmage also combos with Mindcrank if you pay for duskmantle's first activation and a card goes to opponents graveyard. Maybe you already knew this, but I didn't see it in your descriptions so thought I'd flag it for you.
Also, you should consider 1 drop counters to protect your combos, if that is the win condition you tend to go for. Cards like Dispel, Flusterstorm, Spell Pierce, Turn Aside, and Abjure are all good options, but the best of the bunch is undoubtedly Pact of Negation.

Cyclonic rift's overload should be easily attainable unless you get mana-screwed. I doubt you'll find something better too, there's a reason it's banned in some local metas (mine included).
Look up staple blue counterspells and you'll find too many options. I personally like the budget options of Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Dissipate, and Dissolve. Abjure could work with all your cheap blue birds too.

I would switch out Spellstutter Sprite for a different counter. It is a really good card, but I don't think you're running enough faeries to be worth it.
Also, on the subject of Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, you should keep an eye out because there is a rumor that they might release a new Tamiyo in Shadows Over Innistrad. So it's possible her value might go down, or the new one might be worth getting too.
