I'm not sure about glacial/scrying sheets- Into the north is slow, scrying sheets takes you off of desperately needed coloured mana and glacial refills your hand, but can't pick up gas (most creatures non-snow), so Winding Way or Once Upon a Time might be stronger. They are great cards if you want to be midrange, but this is a zoo list.
Since your creatures mostly care about forests (sorry wild nacatyl), you might look at increasing the forest count and running more artifact fixing ( Springleaf Drum , Chromatic Sphere , Navigator's Compass , Paradise Mantle ), which would also let you pick up Shrapnel Blast to finish games. While I'm mentioning burn options, I have seen Tribal Flames in non budget versions of these lists- representing ten points of burn from flames/blast will win games.
There is also the option of trying to make your creatures mostly playable with green mana (like Sunblade Elf , Lupine Prototype or Soultether Golem ), then cast Lush Growth / Nylea's Presence or get a singleton Sacred Foundry off Flower / Flourish . This is a bit more fragile.
If you want to go harder into snow-matters, Boreal Druid and Coldsteel Heart offer ramp, while Frostwalk Bastion is a decent manland, but that will look more like a midrange value list (eventually becoming another Ice-Fang Coatl list, and less like zoo, and may call for dropping to two colours on a budget.

Speaker to the Winds
Creature - Human Shaman
At the beginning of your end step, if you cast two or more spells this turn, drift Speaker to the Winds. (Exile it, then return it to the battlefield transformed and attached to target land.)
"Look out into the world, young one, and see..."
Enchantment - Aura
Enchant land (Target a land as you cast this. This card enters the battlefield attached to that land.)
Enchanted land is a Forest and Plains.
Whenever enchanted land taps for mana, its controller gains 2 life.
"...the world as I see it."
Hope you don't mind- I altered the verbiage of the effect a little bit. There was a lot going on there, but I think this works a little better.
Half-replacing the land with the 'harbor' would get confusing. It would be as if you had another land down there, but it wasn't a "real" land because it belonged to the enchantment land... I considered "sacrifice a land", but the flavor is supposed to be to "see the land through different eyes", right?
The land becoming a Forest and Plains works like Lush Growth , where the enchanted land loses all abilities. I based the riding effect on Contaminated Ground , so you could potentially put all your eggs in one basket and have one powerful land. I dropped the "you control" bit so maybe a black 'drifter' could slap the equivalent of a Contaminated Ground on top of your Windawoken Wilds.
Next: Wildcard, I suppose.

Flooremoji: Lush Growth and Song of the Dryads can force an opponent to have a forest. With Eladamri, Lord of Leaves or Elvish Champion my elves have forestwalk and are now unblockable. Combined with Ezuri, Renegade Leader's activated ability, usually wins the game.

I personally prefer Nylea's Presence over Lush Growth, since it nets you another card and can be bounced back to your hand with a Kor Skyfisher and replayed when you stall out. For one extra mana, it shapes the deck more towards resiliency over speed, which of course is to you discretion.

Is Fatal Push really that prevalent? In my area, most people go Path to Exile instead. Yes I just added to the whole point of your case, but Path is just sort of OP and not much lest Hexproof gets by that.
I usually forget about Fatal Push because, like I said, nobody really uses it in my area.

Have you thought about maybe Elvish Champion, which gives all your elves forestwalk and therefor probably another wincon?I remember running a deck like this back in my casual days in combination with Lush Growth to ensure Forestwalk
