I built a really budget mono flier deck in standard way back. It was really straight forward and put out a lot of pressure. It used mostly one and two costed creatures like Cloudfin Raptor, and Vaporkin to spew out a bunch of fliers, with the goal being that they at least needed to have power equal to the cost paid. I don't have it listed up here, but you could totally do something like that. If you went that route one card I would suggest especially is Pride of the Clouds (unfortunately I did not have access to this beast in standard). Good luck on finding something you love.

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.
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.
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.

Oh no hyperlinking didn't work at all. I just spent 15 minutes adding cards that weren't in the database. Welp. I'll just add them without links.
Cards with links need CN2 edition, cards without need to be added to database.
I wish I could just add them myself...

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):
