Destroy all enchantments.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but in M15 there was card printed call Back to Nature that makes your deck unplayable... sorry man
You may want to replace Fade into Antiquity with Back to Nature it is cheaper and i personally have not seen many viable artifact decks or viable enchantment reanimation decks, so the exile isn't all needed, but its preference.
Do you have any answer to Back to Nature , or do you just scoop?
Noble Hierarch or the budget replacement Birds of Paradise should be in the Virulent Sliver slot. Mana ramp is important, as it lets you put pump spells on an activated Inkmoth Nexus and lets you cast pump spells while protecting your creatures.
Four Vines of Vastwood . No less. Predator's Strike is not that great, and I would only play one copy at maximum. Apostle's Blessing is notably missing, and you should consider playing 2-3 copies in the maindeck.
Distortion Strike is better than Aqueous Form because it grants additional power. I recommend only playing 2 (three at maximum) because it only adds a single power, but having access to unblockability is nice. Canopy Cover is bad and should be replaced with Gitaxian Probe and Wild Defiance in the maindeck. Wild Defiance is a broken Magic card in Infect, and you need access to it in Game 1.
I don't like 19 lands, but if it works fine for you that's OK.
I think you have a little too much Affinity hate in the sideboard. Spellskite and cheap counterspells like Spell Pierce and Dispel are notably missing, as is Dismember , which you need to kill troublesome things. Ratchet Bomb is bad in a deck with lots of cheap creatures, so you can easily cut that and Back to Nature , which is a poor card. Twisted Image should also be in there, as it deals neatly with Spellskite , Affinity blockers and mana guys.
switch the number of Fleecemane Lion 's and Polukranos, World Eater . The thoughts behind this are the world eater has the legendary stamp so he wont be able to be on the board with another polukranos, and if you draw 2 in your opening hand or draw a second or even third (i hope that wouldnt happen) he turns into a dead card in hand.
Also lowers your Mana curve allowing for more creatures earlier.
Another thing would be the Revoke Existence being at best a side board call. Unless the meta turns crazy god heavy or enchantment based than something that can make your creatures a threat or protect them would fit a little better. Ajani's Presence or Thoughtseize come to mind maybe even Back to Nature .
Just some thoughts on it.
This is by no means a budget option, but you may consider splashing Red for Domri Rade , Xenagos, The Reveler , Ogre Battledriver , and / or Goblin Rabblemaster . All in all I feel that such a deck fares much better against control / MBD / other decks with a lot of removal. I have piloted one since M15 came out to pretty good success: Biodriver's Last Stand (2nd at Gameday).
Without splashing another color, I really like Chord of Calling here as Convoking with your Hornets is pretty sick, plus grabbing a Hornet Nest or Hornet Queen at instant speed is an awesome trick. Could also be used to fetch Master Biomancer or Paragon of Eternal Wilds depending on the situation. I would also want one more Prophet of Kruphix since git gives the Hornets pseudo-vigilance and is another great cog for Convoking.
You could probably cut Obelisk of Urd since there's not much to name besides Insect, and you already have plenty of ways to pump those.
Finally, I would definitely cut down a lot of the counterspells in the side and remove Stain the Mind . Some ideas would be AEtherspouts , Back to Nature , Simic Charm , Ranger's Guile / Mizzium Skin , Bident of Thassa , Mistcutter Hydra , and Boon Satyr .
