It's not so much as it's necessary to splash white, it's more of that it doesnt cost much to do so. You can still have the deck function fine without the white splash. It just gives you acess to cards like Lingering Souls and Ranger of Eos which are nice in certain match ups.
I'd look into ways to deal with enchantments yes. Leyline of Sanctity (shuts down your discard) and Blood Moon are the two most problematic. (i've seen some decks run Worship but that isn't as common.
Your discard will help take it out of their hand, but if they topdeck it and play it immediately, you could be in trouble.
Here are some options:
Abrupt Decay hits blood moon and is good against creatures as well but can't hit the other enchantments i mentioned
Destructive Revelry: I'd consider this one the most out of what i've listed
Maelstrom Pulse: Effective but a 3 mana sorcery is pretty slow
Nature's Claim: hit's what you need it to for cheap. The life gain sucks but the card is the most mana efficient
keep in mind if you do have an instant speed answer to moon, you can tap your mana for the right colors while the moon is on the stack, let it resolve, then cast the removal for it as soon as you get priority
Also one more thing i forgot to add earlier, i'd have 2 Spellskites in the board

Night Soil for GY hate and cheap tokens
Gleeful Sabotage can get you two for the price of one (if you got a couple of green creatures that can be tapped)
Vandalblast wipes every artifact but your own
Nature's Claim is cheap and fast
Beast Within is probably the most versatile green removal--anything for three mana

Lets talk a real sideboard:

Just realized I miscounted on my suggestion for the mana elves, sorry about that. Anyways, now that I look at it Priest of Titania was a bad suggestion as I did not really take the time to see how few elves are really in the deck. I'm glad you realized that. It looks like you weeded out the one's you liked from my previous post. I'll try again with some more suggestions that I just thought of...
Glissa Sunseeker -> Caustic Caterpillar/Reclamation Sage/Aura of Silence/Bane of Progress/Nature's Claim. The goal here is not so much the ability to tutor but mana effectiveness and less restrictive. Glissa Sunseeker is a restrictive card in that it requires you to have mana equal to the artifacts CMC and it needs to be able to tap. Any of the aforementioned are going to be better.
P.S. Sylvan Library should really be in this deck lol.

Going 4 colors is bad, especially since it is just for Hedron Crab, which is a bad card in the deck, unless it is played on turn 1. Additionally, you have a very painful mana base, which can be an issue vs more aggressive decks.
13 fetches is a bit too many - add more basics, fast lands (Blooming Marsh) or check lands to mitigate the lifeloss.

madman616 I like it. I was thinking ah I don't want to let go of one the Become Immenses, but then again I can think of a few times that I had one sitting in my hand for a turn or so waiting to be cast. And now that I think about it, being able to slide in a Mutagenic Growth for an extra +2/+2 when my opponent thinks I'm tapped out is very sneaky :)
But, I'm going to trial just dumping the Abrupt Decays all together. They're in the main deck to catch artifacts and enchantments but also a general creatures etc. catch-all - I'm thinking specifically of beating an Ad Nauseam deck with them. Where I'm going with this is, I have Nature's Claim in my sideboard for this job, and if I'm siding in against creatures it's going to be Dismember or Damnation... so here it goes.

If you are new to Legacy, I highly suggest you to play combo deck or some noninteractive aggro, because then you need to just learn to play your deck. If you want to play interactive deck, you need to also know what your opponent is doing and in Legacy "What is my opponent trying to do?" is quite open question. If you know what you are going to go against it's a lot easier, but you still need to learn more decks than by playing noninteractive decks. Familirize with format before playing interactive decks to know how to interact. Let's try to play some control then:
4 Drifting Meadow
4 Slippery Karst
4 Blasted Landscape
3 Swords to Plowshares
3 Gilded Light
3 Blade Splicer
4 Day of Judgment
2 Eternal Dragon
4 Wall of Roots
4 Astral Slide
3 Wall of Blossoms
2 Acidic Slime
4 Street Wraith
This is quite rough version and it's quite undercosted for your budget. You can improve it with Living Wish and wishboard, use Containment Priest for shenanigans and with more. You could add somewhere Lone Missionary somewhere or Reclamation Sage. Perhaps you want to splash a colour, anyway it's easily customizable for your own preferences. Your meta seems to be light on Abrupt Decay, so Astral Slide felt natural way to go.
