Its pretty brutal to try and run 4c if you're not on something with Omnath, Locus of Creation and Lotus Cobra. Though it looks like you're going for a more creatureless path so I'll suggest Cultivate :]

You've done something to the layout, so all the cards are banded together, instead of being spread out into card types (instant, sorcery, creature etc.), as they usually are. Makes it a little harder to look at.

It seems like your deck is very centered around Slitherwisp, but there are plenty of flash cards even if you take out some of the enchantments. That way you can make room for some cheap and efficient interaction such as Drown in the Loch, which is really strong in this deck. Adding some of the new modal lands over basics might also be nice - Agadeem's Awakening  Flip etc.

For the sideboard, I imagine you want something like:

Honorable mentions: Cling to Dust, Sorcerous Spyglass, Negate, Eat to Extinction, Witch's Vengeance.

Hope that helps. Cheers.

One thing you absolutely need is Bloodchief's Thirst. That card will be your only chance at stopping a Lotus Cobra from going off. Even Dire Tactics in the main if you don't want to use it.

Up your Sprite Dragon and include Opt or the new scry 2 draw a card. Some Infuriate mainboard to ensure the Dragon's survive. Spikefield Hazard  Flip in place of a few lands to drop Lotus Cobra Roil Eruption is a good card for this as well.

On the typical Lotus Cobra Omnath, Locus of Creation play You're generating about 10 mana by 4. That's provided you can pass a few turns without the Cobra dying. While I like what you're doing here, you want to use that mana for a solid All-in-one style play. With this, you're actually passing another turn and then relying on hitting 2 land drops potentially again. Which means you'll have to hold both Evolving Wilds/Fabled Passage. Yes, you could play Cultivate, but you really are only generating one additional mana. Land trigger add tap add, tap an additional land Cutlivate, add 5. Leaving 2 left for a total of 7. Spending 4 on a Fae, will grab your Ugin, but you have to pass the turn again and you telegraphed your next play.

From here, on turn five you'd have to play and crack another fetch just to get Ugin on the table. It's doable, but if your opponent holds out for your big play, they would respond and kill Omnath, or Counter or sweep the board.

I'm not sure what to suggest here in place of this. Maybe reduce your normal land count and add Bala Ged Recovery  Flip as a little extra insurance.

My version is very much inspired of this list, and I've played it quite a lot. Although all those additions look super fun, the only one I'm considering right now is the MDFC version of Regrowth (Bala Ged Recovery + Bala Ged Sanctuary ). This deck has few creatures and about two landfall interactions (Lotus Cobra and Tireless Tracker), so I don't think Ashaya, Soul of the Wild or the landharmonicon effect in Ancient Greenwarden are a big plus for this deck, although a third crucible effect could be relevant (expensive though).

I'm mitigated about Scute Swarm, since I often find myself with a low land count on the battlefield. I usually tutor for lands that produce more than one mana in the early turns, and if I get back a bunch of lands from the graveyard with Splendid Reclamation, then I'm probably winning anyway. But it has high board-flooding potential, so it could be worth testing (-:

Anyway, that's my 2 cents on this
