Seems like a fun deck!
I'd recommend Sporesower Thallid and/or Sporoloth Ancient to speed up your Saproling production. Sporesower seems like a better option for your gameplan as it interacts well with Winding Constrictor and Spore Flower.
I just don't quite understand Obelisk Spider in this list. The only card it seems to interact with is Tezzeret's Gambit. Maybe if you had some more Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine or Grim Affliction.
I'd also consider Scatter the Seeds or Fists of Ironwood instead of Flash Foliage, if you intent to increase your Saproling count. However, Flash Foliage may have its use if you intent to use it as a "cantrip fog".
I have a somewhat similar deck (though it is not Common/Uncommon only), in case you want to check!BG Thallids & Saprolings

Also just looking at the deck it seems like you have a lot of big creatures like Kalonian Tusker and Leatherback Baloth but that you don't have any way other than Rancor to get them through a bunch of little creatures. I would suggest adding trample granting cards like Fists of Ironwood or Primal Rage.

Since you are going Voltron, go all in. It's already a glass cannon anyway, so you might as well embrace it.
You need a lot more draw. You may be able to get better draw from auras like Keen Sense, Sixth Sense, Angelic Gift, etc. White and Red are terrible at draw, so you'll have to rely on green and artifacts for better draw. Sylvan Library, Harmonize, Hunter's Insight, and Soul's Majesty will work for your deck. Also using the enchantress package your using now will work great. Shoot for around 10 Draw spells.
Next, you need a lot more ramp. You have a few spells, but you need more. Shoot either for creatures that can be used as chump blockers, or auras. Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Wood Elves, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Farhaven Elf and One with Nature. Shoot for around 10 designated ramp spells.
Next, lower your mana curve. Right now, your average CMC is around 3. Meaning on average, it will cost around 8 mana to cast and enchant him in one turn. So that gives your opponents 8 turns to win before you, or find an answer to him. Try to stick to mostly 1 and 2 CMC auras as much as possible, especially since Uril already gets a buff from enchanting him. If you have any sort of higher cost aura, make sure it is a blowout aura (like Ancestral Mask or Angelic Destiny).
Also, if you lower your curve, adding Genesis Wave can become an absolute devastator.
Next, since it's voltron, use evasion as much as possible. Menace, Flying, Unblockable, Trample,etc. Auras can get you there. Flickering Ward, Gryff's Boon, Kithkin Armor, Alpha Authority, Angelic Gift, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Fists of Ironwood, Giant Spectacle, etc.
Deck is coming along great! Can't wait to play against it!
