Here are my thoughts - many of these have already been echoed by Balaam__ above.
Modern is a very fast format. Most miderange decks typically want to be running cards with cmc between 1-3, with a very few cards at cmc4 (look at Jund, for example, that only runs Bloodbraid Elf and then lots of low-costing cards). In that vein, I think you need to look at lowering your curve. I get that some of your cards can be cast for cheaper with Prowl, but I think you'd only want to keep the very best of these.
On the above note, personally I would drop Zareth San, the Trickster and Notorious Throng entirely. Their cost is waaay too high, especially in a deck with 22 lands, and they don't do enough to justify their spots. I would also drop a few Earwig Squad - it feels like you want to be playing either 2 or 3.... maybe mainboard 2 and have a 3rd in the sideboard against decks that you really need to disable?
I would echo what has already been said above that some good cmc1 cards would be very useful to the the deck. Consider Fatal Push , Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek . You probably want at least 8ish cards that are 1cmc so your first turn isn't wasted.
On the subject of lands, I would recommend swapping both Sunken Hollow and Rogue's Passage for both of Darkslick Shores and Drowned Catacomb . The Hollow just has too many scenarios where it's going to slow you down, and the Passage is both going to hurt your mana base, and be unlikely to get any benefits (you need 5 lands in play and nothing else to do, to make use of it). If the beforementioned cards are too expensive, i'd suggest just running basics over what's happening now.
If you have the money, I'd strongly suggest ditching Thieves' Fortune in place of Aether Vial . It'll make your deck multiple-times stronger than where it is now, and and also Vial will be able to slot seamlessly into any other future tribal-based decks you make, if that is your preferred way of playing. Another option for this deck in particular could be Bitterblossom . I do think Thieves' Fortune is probably a card you'd want to ditch, though perhaps this is a slot that could also be happily consumed by the beforementioned 1cmc cards too.

Just my two cents, When you run mill, it is important to run graveyard hate too. Otherwise your opponents playing muldrotha or Kess or the like get a big advantage for free.
Bojuka Bog is great, Nihil Spellbomb is good, Soul-Guide Lantern is good, Scavenger Grounds is a bit extreme but an option.

Splashing in white could give you access to Pillory of the Sleepless , which will just drain opponents over time! Would also give you access to the Black White vampires from Rivals of Ixalan like Forerunner of the Legion , Legion Lieutenant , Adanto Vanguard .
Asylum Visitor is a decent side deck card to have, as is Duress . Siding in Viridian Longbow synergizes really well with all the deathtouch creatures you have, which could help if you're going against something with bigger creatures. Nihil Spellbomb for graveyard hate.
Arterial Flow Seems like it should have a home in this deck too!
I'm a fan of running Fungal Infection over Viper's kiss, as it either allows you to trade up to two toughness or create more tokens to keep your attacks rolling.
Hope those give you some ideas!

For Elemental Bond , of your 34 creatures, half of them (17) have power 3 or greater and your deck has 10 methods of putting a creature of such power onto the battlefield or blinking it. Even your Terrastodon could destroy some of your own permanents should you be in dire need of giving yourself a 3/3 to proc Elemental Bond.
For Nihil Spellbomb , at worst it's 2 mana to draw a card, but you know how powerful exiling a graveyard is.
For Wall of Roots , with recursion like yours, this is essentially just a mana rock on a stick that your sac outlets can abuse.
