Played an FNM and did not do well but I have been thinking about the sideboarding.
Summary of matches: VS Mono-Blue Tempo Take Out:
I believe I made a mistake on doing the sideboard for this matchup but in the future I will focus on better sideboard choices here.
Against UR Burn with Guttersnipe This matchup is pretty hard to win:
Overall I will have to get more pieces into the sideboard to help it out.

Played this at a standard showdown and went 1-1 against a curious obsession deck and UR izzet drake deck.
I am wondering how to deal with control and how I should sideboard for that.

I get the whole points about Marwyn, Marwyn is a 2 of in the deck. I'm not saying you have to remove Marwyn. That's not really my point. My point about mana fixing was to get blue mana which you don't have enough of.
Take this into consideration:
To run a double mana source like elvish clancaller you need roughly 20 sources of green that are untapped to get it to come out at 90% consistency.
With that said I don't think you can add river's rebuke because that requires 16 blue sources and you only have 7 blue sources.
in order to get steel leaf champion to come out on curve you need 23 untapped sources by turn 3. If you ramp into it I imagine it is more. I know you tried to account for this by adding unclaimed territory and then counting llanowar elves as half a source.
To get skyrider patrol to come out on curve you need roughly 11 blue sources. For hadana's climb to come out on curve you need roughly 12 blue sources.
Thinking about all this there are a few scenarios you can go with.
Scenario A: treat the deck as mono-green with blue splash. With this idea you cut skyrider patrol and you run 4 full copies of hadana's climb. That is the only spell you run that requires blue. You run 3 district guides and have vanquisher's banner in the mainboard. You cut beast whisperer to free up room for removal.
Scenario B: You cut steel leaf champion to free up mana. Still would need to run district guide but then you can remove unclaimed territory and add more blue mana and then run 2 skyrider patrol. Metamorphic alteration can be run as a defensive spell to deal with big threats.
If that doesn't sound right then I wouldn't make any additional changes.
Lastly I looked at the saffron olive build. He's not running steel leaf champion. Also Again, for Marwyn, my issue isn't with marwyn. If we compare his deck to yours. He's not running Steel leaf champion, also he has mana fixing with using Flower \ Fluorish. Not only that he has a lot of mana sinks on the backend so his reliance on white mana is very small. Also he's bought in 100% on the tribal payoffs.

I saw the video. Still tough to do. Marwyn would run into the problem of eating removal once it gets big enough or would just be chump blocked. If it becomes a flyer then that helps it out a little bit...
Instead of removing skyrider patrol you may be able to drop to 2 of him and then focus on building out the board state and flipping hadana's climb so when he comes he can help close the game out. By then you should have the island from a district guide and good mana buildup to dump into sinks like vanquisher's banner and hungering hydra.
other mana fixers would be urban utopia/gift of paradise/new horizons/treasure map and llanowar envoy
quasiduplicate I don't think you can add because of the double blue mana.

there is no really good answer here. I believe your plain to is to use Marwyn to pick up a lot of mana and jam it into hungering hydra and try to close out the match.
Steel leaf stretches the mana base but I see you've tried to correct that with unclaimed territory. I think you can drop Skyrider patrol. Then you can remove unclaimed territory and run district guide or adventurous impulse to help you sift for mana. I'm not sure if beast whisperer works out as the card draw engine but maybe you could use vanquisher's banner there. I'm not sure because he feels like he just dies to removal.
You can replace Pounce with Prey Upon or it is kinda up to you how you want to do the play. Beyond that is it is a bit difficult to do a tribal elves build with simic.
