I'm using the ring menu displayed by the site to do this, so there's no reason you can't do it yourself next time. ;) But let's see.

You only have 4 spells each in White, Red and Green, so one solution is to halve the number of Plains, Mountains and Forests in the deck and add on six more Islands (or maybe 7 Islands 1 Swamp). However, that also leaves you in the position of maybe drawing those colors and not getting the colors you need.

Another solution would be to trade out ALL the non-blue lands for taplands: 3 each of Tranquil Cove, Swiftwater Cliffs and Thornwood Falls, 4 Dismal Backwater, and 7 Islands. This is a fairly slow mana base, but you probably won't be caught unawares. Another option in this vein would be to run 4 Dismal Backwater, 4 Jungle Shrine and 12 Islands, but this leaves you jammed if you end up with more than 4 R, W and/or G cards in hand. (It's statistically unlikely that you would, but our job in mapping out the lands is to plan for everything that can happen... especially the unlikely stuff.)

A third is mana-fixing. Rupture Spire essentially has a casting cost, but it still gets you any color. Shimmering Grotto is standard mana-filtering. Those, 12 Islands and your Birds of Paradise would probably be sufficient.

Finally, as to what to replace the Cloudfin Raptor with: Cloud Sprite, Faerie Squadron, Jace's Phantasm, Zephyr Sprite or -- my personal recommendation -- Judge's Familiar.
