Not sure of your budgetm but Jace, the Mind Sculptor seems like he'd be good. Essentially a free Brainstorm every turn plus the option to bounce a problematic creature should you need to. Also Magus of the Wheel and Jace's Archivist both serve as redundant wheel/windfall effects, the latter being repeatable each turn.

Some cheap possible includes: Geier Reach Sanitarium, Lore Broker, Jace's Archivist, or Nin, the Pain Artist.

Wheels do great here and some of them are budget friendly like Time Reversal, Molten Psyche, Jace's Archivist or Whirlpool Warrior. Also cards that generate mana for your snakes like Battle Hymn or Xenagos, the Reveler give a nice boost to your mana. They all work well in my Xyris deck, but I did go with wheels and a storm plan to win the turn after Xyris hits the field

Nice build. I run a similar deck lead by Mairsil, the Pretender, in which Oona is a primary win con. My two cents: resolving a Devastation Tide, Wash Out or Cyclonic Rift before a wheel effect, such as provided by Jace's Archivist, Wheel and Deal, or Windfall (you are already running this) is enough to ruin anyone’s game. Couple it with Notion Thief (which you are already running) or Narset, Parter of Veils, and you have all-but won as you opponents are left with little to no hand. Run Reanimate for more recursion options. Have fun!
