Dark Betrayal is far too specific to be good, especially since most decks are running 2 or more colors and you hit maybe 20 % of their cards in that case. Cards like Explosive Vegetation (IMO) should never be in the board, there is never a situation where ramp isn't good, what particular match-up are you bringing that in for? Let me know and I might have other suggestions. Sibsig Muckdraggers is totally replaceable, a much better card with the same board impact (number's wise) is Foul Renewal. I'd suggest pulling 1 Whip of Erebos and putting it into the board, having 3 means you risk drawing an almost useless duplicate during a game, the one in the board could come in if you are facing enchantment or artifact hate. You are running a lot of reach creatures in the side board, i'm guessing you are worried about those pesky flyers. They are all very expensive, Aerie Bowmasters works great in that slot for less mana, and Plummet is great.

Anger of the Gods kills more than half your creatures, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is hard to justify when you've got a solid creature all along the curve, like you're hurting yourself as much as them. If you're gonna go with heavy-hitting creatures, put enough copies in to hit regularly and base your strategy around them. But that's midrange not control. Some "control" could be: Destructive Revelry, Unravel the Aether,Defend the Hearth, Reclamation Sage, Display of Dominance, Plummet, Back to Nature, Perilous Vault, Desecration Plague, Naturalize

Commune with the Gods to dig for Assault Formation or a creature.
Sandsteppe Citadel, while slow, will really help fix your colors.
Collected Company could be good here.
Pharika, God of Affliction or Athreos, God of Passage would be interesting but not necessarily good.
Ultimate Price would be great.

Alright, it took some time, and lots of playtests, but I have all my suggestions ready. The thing you need is versatility, the kind that only:
A sideboard can fix.
So, I have a list of cards that can be deployed depending on some of your harder match-ups, or decks you'll face often in your playgroup.
- Prey Upon, Hunt the Weak, or Epic Confrontation. These cards will help to defeat any troublesome creatures run in your opponent's decks, that you weren't expecting game 1, so come game 2, you need some form of removal. This help against the Temur (really any creature heavy deck like that), it'll help kill that Felidar, any Biggies that are keeping you down in that control deck, any pestering creatures stolen from Mimic Vat. Another possibility is Lignify to get rid of unwanted abilities, and it is rather funny to cast this on a Felidar.
Not only will these cards help against the decks in your playgroup, but also against many other decks as well. (P.S.- I figured I might as well just lump the rest into one section because they're all pretty self-explanatory.)
- Evolution Charm. A beautiful card with many utilities.
- Utopia Vow can stop the big attackers, but only use it when you are not afraid of them having that extra mana.
- VS a Mono-white Equip Aggro: The deck went 1-1 against this deck. First game it lost, as it was unable to deal with the multiple Golem-Skin Gauntlets plCed on a Kor Duelist. Close one though, opponent was already down to 8 life and would have lost next turn. The second game, the deck won. With an undead 2/2 Young Wolf, a 3/3 Experiment One, and a Groundbreaker down, the opponent came to 9 life on turn 3. Turn 4, another Groundbreaker hit the field, swing for the win.
- VS a R/B Aggro: 0-2. First game, didn't draw any lands so mulligan. Drew only one land, another mulligan was too risky. Only drew one more land throughout the course of the game, so the deck was mana screwed. Game two, deck fared pretty well. Lots of devotion allowed Reverent Hunter to hit the field as a 7/7; but, no haste, so on opponent's turn, a 5/1 with intimidate and a Brute Force cast on it swung for the kill, winning the game.
- VS a B/G Graveyard Utility: Deck went 2-1. Game one, opponent didn't draw enough mana to sustain themselves, so deck won. Game two, opponent ruled early board with a Nighthowler, which was fed with Satyr Wayfinders; coupled with kill spells to take out this deck's creatures, the Nighthowler swung for the kill, deck lost. Game three- Deck destroyed opponent with an Aspect of Hydra cast on a 5/2 Avatar of the Resolute, swung for 9, won game.
Well, overall, the deck ran great! I had lots of fun playing it, both in play tests and during my playgroup's Magic night. So yeah, those results above were from yesterday, against my friends's decks. :)
So really the only thing that needs to be here is a sideboard. The deck ran well, but only against certain decks, and the only reason it beat the B/G Graveyard was because the opponent was mana screwed. So I strongly encourage a sideboard, and hope you find the cards I suggested useful.
Good luck, have fun, and let me know if you ever need anything!

when ojutai taps to attack, before combat damage is assigned, you should be able to cast Plummet in response. as for young silumgar, your best bet would be to hold Temur Charm or Silumgar's Scorn (basically any counter-spell) unless you have access to black for Crux of Fate or some other kind of "target player sacrifices a creature" spell. or you can take him out by casting pump spells on your own creatures when he blocks or cast Shape the Sands on your deathmist raptor to give him reach. there are ways around hexproof and dragons. you just have to account for them in your strategies

a good answer to dragons? Plummet. 1G, side out wild slash when you are facing a dragon deck. you have them in the side already. another good one would be Shape the Sands. target creature gains +0/+5 and gain reach, for a single green mana. or what i do in my coco deck is use Titanic Growth and Temur Battle Rage to knock their dragons out when they declare them as blockers. i did it to a control deck that tapped out for a Dragonlord Ojutai and blocked my Elvish Mystic and his face was priceless.

I might suggest dropping the Secure the Wastes for Arbor Colossus while you could get more dudes with Secure, you get a big body with reach if needed, and another removal against flying (which right now Stormbreath Dragon is gonna be a pain against you. Sure you got Plummet but I always prefer more options.
