I think you could do better than the current mana ramp theme you have. I mean Leigh in tapping dudes is ok but most of you have a lot of mana dorks and only 11 instants. So that doesn't drop much for you. And since most of your creatures are single colored he only gives them +1/+1. Also I don't think you should even bother dreaming about playing world spine worm. Slagwurm is a bit hard at 7 let alone 11.

I'd suggest going with a more tempo oriented build.

T1 is Birds of Paradise or maybe a few other mana dorks. T2 You play with soft counters in blue like Remand and Mana Leak to stop posing T2 threats like goyf and such.

T3 you drop serious threats or you play minor ones with counter spell backup. Goyf is great but pricy. Cards like Kalonian Tusker or Avatar of the Resolute work as great efficient beaters. You could also go with Icefeather Aven to come in with evasion.

Cards like Simic Charm provide you with lots of versatility.

Since you are a bit slower and probably will have a few mana ramp cards. Things like Sturdy Hatchling are easily protectable beaters.

There are more controlling options like Mystic Snake and Venser, Shaper Savant

Or more aggressive cards like Vaporkin variants backed up with versitile pumps like Vines of Vastwood and the aforementioned charm.

Sagu Mauler can be a strong resilient late game card but there are probably better options.

The exact cards I mention are mostly rough suggestions. I didn't have time to look up the best cards for every scenario I listed but I think you get the point.

Good luck with your deck.

He ran ok for me as just after he was printed, I was still playing good ol' Master of Waves. I threw 2 copies of him into the deck and the +1 was really good for me. Mainly because what the deck mostly did was Scry all the time using Thassa, God of the Sea, Omenspeaker and Sigiled Starfish and draw cards using Bident of Thassa and creatures like Vaporkin and Triton Shorestalker. So in that deck, he wasn't too bad; but I can easily say he's probably one of, if not the worst Jace we've ever seen (Jace Beleren I don't like much either, but in EDH he sees a lot of play).

Theros today, and it was a really solid pack. Seriously, we think every card was playable.

We were excited to see Vaporkin, for some solid evasion-style value. And the flavor text of Stymied Hopes made a good card even better. The Centaur tribe was laying down some whup, with Centaur Battlemaster and Chronicler of Heroes, green was doing their fight-style removal hing with Time to Feed, and our monstrous trampling Ill-Tempered Cyclops (also with great flavor text) looked decent as well. Cards with the Bestow mechanic were looking really good though, with Baleful Eidolon, Leafcrown Dryad, and our #1 Pick, Thassa's Emissary.

Our rare was fine too (just not a high pick for draft):
