I know you are interested in new instants and sorceries, but you could upgrade your creatures to have more synergy with your deck...
IMHO these are the creatures you are running that could be changed:

Mutant's Prey can be helpful for getting rid of threats. When it comes to dropping cards for others in your maybeboard, let me comment on that.
Broodbirth Viper-doesn't help you much. It gives you decent draw, but it doesn't even give you xp for it's clones.
Caller of the Pack-too expensive, no xp, not even a bonus from dealing damage
Illusory Ambusher-really expensive for what it does, you will only get 1 draw from it in the beginning and it isn't good enough to waste a turn putting coutners on it
Will-Forged Golem-expensive and doesn't give you any benefits
Second Harvest-this seems to only be useful some of the time.
Day of the Dragons-will get rid of all of your hard fought counters-when your creatures re-renter, yes you can get a crap ton of xp and etb triggers, btu all the buffs you put on them go away and the tokens don't come back. a single Declaration in Stone removes your hard work and the enchantment is still on the field.

Most of the time it wasn't. My playgroup is removal heavy. So I kind of expected to never get through if they saw it coming. So I'd flash in Illusory Ambusher and present them an option. Take ten damage, or let your creature die while potential drawing me some cards. He was a true beater in my deck.
Anyways I like the deck man. I see in your maybe board you have Wood Elves. Can I suggest a swap to main? Yavimaya Dryad. They basically do the same thing. Sure Yavimaya Dryad forest walk, but it's two green and colorless instead of a green and two colorless. In a three color deck might be more reliable or at least let you use green more freely if you need it.

Hey man, like that deck!
I have to ask you something though. Illusory Ambusher, what's your opinion? I used to run a rafiq deck and I ran it. I had for card draw, but if no one was swing it a pseudo haste beater. They thought me swinging with it was strange, but it gave it evasion in a way.
