Unclaimed Territory you should think about also for your mana base.
As your playing red I would consider Lightning Bolt.
for sideboard on theme I would look at creatures and instant speed items to be able to diversify when you cast spells or to directly impact the board. Ancient Grudge if you think artifacts are an issue. Feed the Clan to hose agro decks, Damping Sphere for Tron and Storm, Spellskite may not be bad though your meta may make it not as good. Scavenging Ooze for graveyard hate.

If you want monk themed Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is a good choice that is somewhat like a mix of ishai and bruse. Soulfire Grand Master is a must to keep casting your spells repeatedly. Monastery Mentor for chump blockers. Spellskite and Standard Bearer to force bad plays. Aegis of Honor for another redirect. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight to lower opponent's damage (also super great with double strike)

I played a deck like this for a while last year. The biggest issue I found was trying to find the combo pieces. (I ran 4 Kiki 4 Angel) I ran 4x Secure the Wastes to add a bit more middle game interaction. Mirror Breaker Angel Moon
If counters are your issue, run Guttural Response. There are plenty of SB options for Lilly like Nevermore or Pithing Needle or Sorcerous Spyglass. You could also run the R/W Manland. She can't interact with it and it can pound away at her health. I see you already have Stony Silence & Path to Exile which should help against KCI but so should Rest in Peace, RIP will also help in the Storm match up. I personally feel like you're tech'd fairly good against Infect but a few Spellskite in the 75 would make a lot of sense, protect your combo, Infect can't pump itself. Ethersworn Canonist or Rule of Law are all the Storm hate you need.
I vote no as far as splashing is concerned. You just need to tweak your list some.

Plus you can access all the relevant artifact based hate cards, those often tend to be more than enough, be it Spellskite, Ensnaring Bridge, or Ratchet Bomb - remember red is a pretty agressive color, so it can race if boggles stumbles and/or lacks lifelink.

I have several suggestions...
Metallic Mimic - Abuse those etb/death triggers on everyone's turn instead of once per round. It doesn't need a lot of creatures of the same type... i.e. name zombie and sac Gary over and over. If you add this, I'd replace Merciless Executioner with his zombie twin Fleshbag Marauder.
Spellskite - You can redirect the same spell/ability on the stack to set your life where you need it... and using it normally is great too.
Sadistic Hypnotist - Discard seals games.
Goblin Bombardment - Excellent sac outlet here and you can always hit yourself to get off the throne.
Cards I'd cut:
Dreadbore - unless you've got superfriends decks you face consistently.
Unstable Obelisk - I know enchantments are a pain but wow this effect is expensive.

After looking up a few decklists, it doesn't seem like Big Zoo is running Tarmogoyf. This is good for Grixis. Because then they only have Loxodon Smiter and Knight of the Reliquary to be bigger than Anger of the Gods, and maybe some fringe like 1 Baneslayer Angel. I think I'd approach the matchup like 5 color humans, except that counterspells are still useful. Spell Snare especially.
It also looks like Bloodbraid is taking the spot of Collected Company. This is even better because I used to board in Dispel against Zoo because of Path to Exile and Collected Company. Now I will no longer look silly for drawing Dispel against their hand of all creatures.
With your deck, I'd venture to say it's less a problem of sideboarding and more a problem with mainboard tuning. Electrolyze and Forked Bolt line up very poorly against Zoo. Remand doesn't really do anything against them. They're all great cards vs Mardu Pyromancer, but I don't think I like them against most of modern right now.
I really like the Spellskites in your sideboard vs Zoo. Definitely board those in. They can sit in front of Wild Nacatl all game long until they redirect a Path to Exile from Gurmag Angler to themselves. I admit I don't like Spellskite vs the meta, but vs Zoo it's amazing.
