Thanks for the input! I definitely considered Arbor Elf, and I still am if I'm being honest with myself. I just wanted to see how well Magus of the Candelabra would work instead. It seems alright so far, but I definitely want to test it some more. I had forgotten about Sylvan Scrying, so I might try to fit those in there. As for Bramblecrush, we'll see. The way this has been playing I think I'm going to end up putting in the elf ramp anyway, and if I do that I'll have some extra space for things like that. I was thinking Naturalize to begin with, but I like the idea you have of land shenanigans!

Arbor Elf pairs great with Wild Growth or Utopia Sprawl. I like Sylvan Scrying as a way to get out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Something else that might interest you would be the land destruction option you have starting on turn 3. It requires you to have an Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl or Wild Growth in play right away, but you can then play things like Bramblecrush and other less powerful versions that also hit lands. Might be a good sideboard trick.

Bramblecrush is great and hits planeswalkers too. I really like Root Out since you get some draw out of it. also any spells with multiple modes like Blessed Alliance Sultai Charm Orzhov Charm any charm spell or escalate spell really since they are seldom dead in your hand. What to cut? When you play with the deck, everytime you draw a card and wish it was something else right down the card name. After you see some repeat 3-5 times you can drop them for other stuff since you don't get value out of them anyway.

3 removals, like you said, is definitely way too low. Of course, doesn't have a LOT of removal, but you can consider those :
Scour from Existence, Bramblecrush, Desert Twister, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Reclaiming Vines. Land destruction is good for those who use Glacial Chasm, which is bad for your strategy. All Is Dust ONLY if you're in a pinch.
To a certain extent, you can go the route of making everything on the board an artifact with Mycosynth Lattice and all the green artifact/enchantment removal becomes effective against anything - even lands.
Also, an elf deck without Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury? BLASPHEMY! (I'm joking.)
Non-elf too good to pass : Eternal Witness.
Notable utility : Mirri's Guile is a free pseudo scry 3, every turn. Abundance if you do not need any other land drop OR if your absolutely need a land, you can choose... AND! If you got Sylvan Library out with it, it transforms it into a free Draw 3 every turn due to its replacement effect!
Hope this helps a bit!

So I'm confused on where the control tag is correct here. You're not exactly playing Bramblecrush types of cards, so aren't you more midrange?

Always love a good budget deck!
Racecourse Fury is good for cheap haste since you're pretty creature-light. Unstable Footing is always good to ensure damage, and I'm surprised you don't have a Fling to make someone removing borby hurt:P
