I would honestly add other creatures (Other Levis, Krakens, serpents, and Otcos) Lorthos, the Tidemaker Elder Deep-Fiend Kederekt Leviathan (Sweeper) Simic Sky Swallower (Just a 1 of so you don't draw it) Pearl Lake Ancient Nemesis of Reason Serpent of the Endless Sea Deep-Sea Kraken Scourge of Fleets Wrexial, the Risen Deep
Just some other ideas :).
For reference if you want to splash green though.

I'd cut most of your planeswalkers, most of your non-ramp artifacts, and most of your enchantments.
My primary piece of advice here is that 1) You really should choose to prioritize abusing creatures OR spells, not both, because there are simply too few slots, and 2) you want your spells/creatures to do things in multiples. You don't need too much draw here because your mana is tied up doubling splashy spells, but you need a heck of a lot of mana ramp to keep up.
I don't mean to sound curt, sorry :( Hope this was at least a bit helpful! I agree with Lilbrudder that it's simply too many cards to reasonably cut down, and that you should take a little time and find a focus for the deck.

I have some recommendations for you:
I choose to run the above cards to have more control over my discard because there is nothing more frustrating than dredging Animate Dead into your graveyard and then drawing a huge creature you can't cast.
These are all great main targets for The Mimeoplasm.
Your build doesn't very many fatty to exile to put couters on The Mimeoplasm.
All three are better than compulsion IMHO.
Drawing cards will win you games.
There are more ideas of course but those are what comes to mind right away for me. I'm basing my recommendations off of my own build, check it out when you have some time. You may find something else you like that I didn't mention.

Benzilla11 I see your point and I stand corrected. Ive updated my description to fix this error as well as switched out Sage Owl. Although it hasn't happened to me yet there's always the risk that 4 lands/noncreature cards would appear and so Augury Owl does mitigate this. Thank you!
Deep-Sea Kraken is actually my Plan B if I can't get Ula online. For every card my opponent casts 1 time counter gets removed & combo with clockspinning. I never had the need to suspend it though.
I've looked at the creature selection again and these are the ones I would consider:
Aethersquall Ancient Mass creature removal but it will take awhile & could back fire
Benthic Behemoth Islandwalk, 7/6 & no negative abilities :D

I have Ugin's Insight, Chain Reaction, Disaster Radius, Sylvan Caryatid, Simic Sky Swallower. Replace Into the Wilds with Courser of Kruphix to benefit off Riku of Two Reflections. You might want to run some counter magic, because Riku's going to paste a target on your back. I'd recommend ones that give you a draw or a scry, because those you could coppy with Riku for added stupidity. Try Rewind, Arcane Denial, and of course, Counterspell.

I play something like this in a modern we do with friends. I play it more like multi-color, but this was the original strategy. If you play it only simic-ramp until big creature or Prophet of Kruphix, you will have serious issues against black with heavy removal/discard, white control, and blue with counters. After you are able to put in the big creatures in play they will simply be countered, pacified or simply destroyed by cheap removal while you lose a lot of life to small cards. More protection for your creatures and faster ramp is essential. I play it with Sylvan Caryatid for its hex-proof, multicolor and defense. Definitely keep Simic Charm, Cyclonic Rift is an interesting addition but only if you are able to somehow pay its Overload cost (realistically I'd remove it). In Modern you'll probably not be able to play creatures that cost a combined of 6. So stick to big creatures that cost 5 or less. I'm a fan of Prophet of Kruphix and Simic Sky Swallower, but they are usually exiled, removed, countered or never get to play. I know this after playing this deck in modern. IF they make it to play however, it's usually the game. This deck is worth researching, I think It could be competitive.
