I think you should cut: Brutalizer Exarch, Conduit of Ruin, Frost Titan, Giant Adephage, Myr Battlesphere, Oblivion Sower, Pelakka Wurm, Phyrexian Ingester, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sagu Mauler, Simic Sky Swallower, Sphinx Ambassador, Stalking Vengeance, Tornado Elemental, Plasm Capture, Pandemonium, Sunken Hope, Tezzeret the Seeker, Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Disaster Radius, Explosive Vegetation, Heat Shimmer, Rude Awakening, and Spelltwine. As for lands, I do think you should replace: Izzet Boilerworks, Spawning Bed, and Temple of the False God.
I think you should add: Temur Sabertooth, Genesis Ultimatum, Etali, Primal Storm, Skyshroud Claim, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Chaos Warp, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Terror of the Peaks, Kodama of the East Tree, Reclamation Sage, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Consecrated Sphinx, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Wood Elves, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Diluvian Primordial, Prime Speaker Zegana, Release to the Wind, Return of the Wildspeaker, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Garruk's Uprising, Guardian Project, Unnatural Growth, and Arcane Signet.
If you are able to find more slots, I think you should consider: Hullbreaker Horror, Thryx, the Sudden Storm (dependent on count of spells with 5 cmc or more), Soothsaying, Mulldrifter, Beast Whisperer (dependent on final count of creatures), Rishkar's Expertise, Turntimber Symbiosis Flip, See the Unwritten, Balefire Dragon, Scourge of the Throne, Bane of Progress (I feel like you do not have a ton of high value artifacts or enchantments that would cause this to cripple you), Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, and Genesis Storm.

@Rivrek: Like enpc already mentioned. Tazri gives you access to the best cards in the format, and he can convert infinite colorless mana into a win by using his ability until you find either Thrasios/Spellseeker + Thassa's Oracle to close out the game. But in most cases, Najeela, Kenrith or Thrasios + Partner are just the better choice.
@Dam0: After the Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary ban, Seton, Krosan Protector was the best mono green commander, but after that Selvala, Yisan and Ashaya showed up and Seton got overshadowed. I've no doubt that Seton is still a strong commander, but he's just outclassed by Selvala/Yisan and Ashaya... Maybe he's on the same page as Marwyn... After the release of all the mentioned commanders, I've rarely seen Seton. Because of that, we're also lacking enough reliable data on him... In our opinion, he's a bit outclassed, and therefore he's fringe competitive for us. But show us your list and tell me the advantages of Seton over Marwyn or Ashaya.
@Nonary27: You already answered your own question. With Unesh you can snowball very quickly because of all the card advantage she provides... I mean, you can play Universal Automaton for and do a Fact or Fiction-effect for every changeling or Sphinx you'll play. Mono blue wincons (Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Triskaidekaphile or Atemsis, All-Seeing) are also easier than deleting every opponent with combat damage, and you can also easily protect your gameplan with Counterspells which is obviously better than mono red spells. There are also mono blue Sphinxes who can win a game by themselves: Sphinx of the Second Sun & Consecrated Sphinx

Consecrated Sphinx is one thats missing. Costly card but very strong for draw.

I have replaced Mind's Eye with Consecrated Sphinx, which did increase the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.62 to 3.63, but I believe that that replacement was worth the increase, since the sphinx is superior to the eye in the majority of situations.

The majority of users here have voted for Consecrated Sphinx, so I shall put that card into my decks.
