I'd also suggest some removal. The opponent is going to land a threat and you will need to answer it. Terminate answers most everything. And Lightning Bolt answers things pretty well with the option to take 3 points off your opponents life in a pinch.
I don't think you really need Diabolic Tutor. If you don't have the one card you are looking for on turn 4 and you need to spend the entire turn to get it. you need to rely less on that one card or find easier ways to get to it.
Silent Arbiter is nice as a way to slow down the game but he comes down turn 4. If you're problem is Aggro decks like Zoo coming in fast, try a Pyroclasm style effect. If the opponent just has 2 big creatures than you'll probably just want removal like Terminate or Dreadbore.
Best of luck with your deck.

i mean if youre not going to get into anything super competitive you can look at Theros block which was highly focused on mono-colored decks with a mechanic called devotion that is sorta like chroma, which as i recall was around the lorwyn time.
i mean theres a lot you've missed since you were out but the most recent sets are
battle for zendikar (a return to zendikar. although i don't think they had gone to zendikar for the first time when you were last in)this set focused on several horrors that came and decimated a lush mana rich plane. theres some good green ramp cards you can pick up in here probably. (idk for sure i'm not the biggest green player).
shadows over innistrad (return to innistrad which also wasn't visited when you were last in if i remember the order of sets). remember the horrors i mentioned? they came to a new plane and proceeded to mess stuff up there as well. theres lots of cards that transform in this block. Theres some nice flavorful black cards in this set if memory serves.
kaladesh is an artifact matters set. lots of artifacts and things that care about artifacts. powerful set. revolt as a mechanic is interesting and Fatal Push is a great card to look out for.
newest set that will be released soon is amonkeht and its egyptian theme. black white zombies are a thing now. green has some really exciting creatures in this set.
you can also look into modern which may have more of the cards your familiar with. its a format that i don't think was around when you last played. if you know extended it is sorta a replacement for that. its basically everything current back until like 7th edition or something. so theres a chance some of your old cards may still work in this format. idk just thought i'd let you know.
best bet for mono colors is in something like Theros though. look for Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
