I get the feeling that this deck has to be on defence in creature matches and build up it's forces untill you have force strong enough to just overwhelm opponent or slowly kill with flyers. That's why i prefer going with less lords and with more small, cheap and defensive creatures rather than Benalish Marshals. That allows me to play 2 Dusks without fear of losing too much creatures to its effect and just swinging for the lethal afterwards.
The deck is slow because it never gets to do anything on turn 1 (other than cycling Cast Out or playing some weak 1 drop if any) and turn 2 plays aren't really scary. I like having more removal tools for this deck because of that as it improves some game 1 matchups vs agressive decks and vs Storm - removing Inspiring Statuary early on may prove game breaking.
I've created list that I'm currently playing. I'll be playing it on tommorow Standard Showdown with 1 change though - -4 Knight of Grace for 2/2 split of Suncleanser and Seal Away. Knights were never strong in this deck in my opinion and some defensive tools may prove to be a better choice.
Also my sideboard is a bit different. 50% of meta in my region is playing a lot of aggro decks and heavy U decks with 0 GPG's so I'm not playing Remorseful Cleric. Instead I go with 2 Authority of the Consuls and 2 Jace's Defeat (-1 Negate for that). Still the SB in my deck is IMO the most all-around.

I feel you, but there are extremely inexpensive counters that can be great!
Dispel is a format staple, it costs $0.20 cents on tcgplayer Negate is another format staple that cost $0.02 cents on tcgplayer Mental Misstep is basically a zero mana spell that cost between $0.50 - $0.90 cents on tcgplayer

I 100% agree with APPLE01DOJ.
I would also suggest running some lords to beef up your zombies. Diregraf Captain and Death Baron are great for this. Since the Baron was just reprinted, his price has dropped a ton. I'll whip up a budget Zombie/Scarab God build for you if you'd like.

With Solemnity your Glen Elendra becomes an infinite Negate on a stick. And if you do check Solemnity out another card that works great with solemnity is Kithkin Spellduster, half a Disenchant on a stick.

Agent of Horizons could just be a Nessian Courser or something along those lines. Since you're mono green. I get that you've got Rupture Spire, but I really don't think it's worth it just for that one card, with that one ability.
Anyways, I suggest you cut the deck down to 60 cards. It's just a good rule to follow when building decks in general. The reason for doing this is consistancy.
As for the "boards".
Maybeboards and Acquireboards are not a thing in game. The former is cards a person is considering adding to their deck, and the latter is cards that they need to obtain IRL to build their deck.
The Sideboard, however, is a thing in game.
A sidebord is an additional 15 cards (or less) that you are allowed/(expected) to use when you play tournaments.
When you play in tournaments, you always play best of three. You play the first game against someone using your "vanilla" decklist, called a mian deck, but after that game is over, you have the option of "sideboarding" for the following games.
You may take any amount of cards from your main deck, and switch them out with cards in your sideboard to adjust for your opponents stretegy. (The rule is the can be a minimum of 60 cards in your deck, and a maximum of 15 in your sideboard at all times, and there may be no more than 4 copies of a single card between the two.)
When the "best of three" is over, you revert back to your main deck for the next opponent.

Boza No that idea wouldn't work for bigger midrange cards...because that sounds more like a midrange approach and I don't think that would work very well...hexproof can still get exiled and deathtouched so the only viable card I would pick from that group is carnage tyrant because of it's threat.
landofMordor I think the same can be said about any deck when Settle the Wreckage is involved, but would you use Spell Pierce or Negate to counter it though? I mean UW + splash of green should have an answer here I think.
beyond that...cards that should have potential with this deck from a GW standpoint are smaller cards that turn into big threats later and you should be able to load up a lot of enchantments.
