Here is the lint to the decklist.
-1 Void Shatter
+1 Collective Brutality : Really good card against aggro, usually kill a dude and gain some life.
+2 Radiant Flames : One of these replaces the Yahenni's Expertise that I mainboard in my version. The other one replaces the weaver of lightning, I just found the extra board wipe more useful.
+1 Ob Nixilis Reignited : Useful against control matchups, also really good against any midrange-y deck like B/G counters.
+1 Lost Legacy : Kills Saheeli combo.

Yeah I'm playtesting replacing the Weaver of Lightning with Noxious Gearhulk for those matchups where another body + life gain would be useful. Especially vs the counter decks for example. I don't see many spirits in my meta and I don't feel that weaver can do enough.

First let me say that the mainboard of this deck is very well put together! I really don't have any suggestions for the main except 20 lands may or may not be enough. If you get mana screwed a lot, you may want to give that a second look.
For the sideboard I highly recommend a 4th Bristling Hydra. When you have a lot of energy stockpiled that card gives control fits. Also you have a lot of Instants and Sorceries so Weaver of Lightning isn't a bad choice either. Very nicely done. Good luck!

Maybe Hands of Binding and Stormchaser Mage. You might want to cast spells like Shock to burn your opponent while playing Guttersnipe, Weaver of Lightning, and Thermo-Alchemist. I'm building a similar deck, and I'll let you know with another comment if there are any concepts that would dominate in your deck for a very little price.

I'll think about Fevered Visions, it seems like a good draw spell that could help smooth out the deck's clunkier draws while damaging the opponent and triggering prowess. What do you suggest cutting for it? On the other hand, this deck really wants to play spells early- maybe Curious Homunculus Flip if we are stuck on lands, but that's about it- and our payoffs late. One of the reasons this works is because we have such a high number of spells that draw us cards. Curious Homunculus Flip and Bedlam Reveler, along with Rise from the Tides, all benefit from spells already cast, while Thermo-Alchemist and Stormchaser Mage only benefit from spells cast while they are on the battlefield- Weaver of Lightning is a necessary evil against token decks. You can only play so many creatures over spells until the consistency of your decks begins to suffer, and I wanted to play the ones that benefited from spells cast before they went on the battlefield, or shored up the deck's weaknesses- although I could see splitting/cutting Weaver of Lightning for Thermo-Alchemist.

akprimape I think red is an important addition just because of Harnessed Lightning. Also, Weaver of Lightning in the sideboard definitely isn't bad and the third color lets you use Painful Truths to the fullest as well as Radiant Flames if you prefer more board wipe in your control brews.
