Some spells maybe worth considering: Congregate, Commune with the Gods, Buried Ruin, Scavenger Grounds

The hard part with tribal decks is having a reason to actually play the tribe. Right now you've got Sporecrown Thallid but that's it. You could consider Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton, and if you're willing to splash into another color you should definitely spring for Slimefoot, the Stowaway and Pack's Disdain.

As for sideboard, the two general directions you can go in is planning for the decks that are good against you, or planning for the meta (the decks you expect to play against). Wrath effects and dedicated burn decks will both be a struggle for you. I'd recommend you up the number of Heroic Interventions for fighting against control since you can't recover very well from a wrath. I'd also recommend you look at some cheap lifegain or way to interact with burn. I see Congregate there, but by the time you're able to cast it burn decks will have already killed you. Timely Reinforcements is a good option, so is Blessed Alliance. Leyline of Sanctity is a great option too, but its pretty pricey. If you splash black like I suggested you could even look at a few copies of Collective Brutality. Beyond that you should expect the meta. It's very graveyard heavy right now, so I'd recommend 1-3 copies of Rest in Peace. Tron and Storm are also both present, so 1-3 copies of Damping Sphere would be a good idea as well. Artifact and enchantment destruction is always good to have access to, so 1-3 copies of either Fragmentize or Naturalize would serve you well. 1-2 copies of Pithing Needle can be nice as a catch-all, and a bit of extra removal in the form of Blessed Alliance, Journey to Nowhere, or Condemn could be nice in some games too. If you run black those could swap for Fatal Push, Collective Brutality, or Go for the Throat. With the addition of black you could also throw in some hand disruption against combo or control, things like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek.

Whatever you choose to do, good luck!

Approach of the Second Sun seems like a card that will pit everyone against you, so be careful if you do want to play it. You have two Test of Endurances, so maybe change one to a Blind Obedience. Congregate can sometimes gain you stupid amounts of life, and Ajani's Pridemate gets big fast, other than those it looks pretty fun.

I love casting Congregate in my life gain decks. Especially in my life-burn deck Listerine.

Congregate usually gains me a ton of life. Martyr of Sands can gain a lot of life, too. Soul sisters Soul's Attendant+Soul Warden are great life gain creatures. Might want some Chalice of Life  Flip or Felidar Sovereign or Aetherflux Reservoir This deck is 10 cards over the minimum. It should have no more than 26 lands - that's still a TON!
