The problem with Neoform here is the general lack of good 2cmc creatures to sacrifice. I would recommend against running either Lotus Cobra Tangled Florahedron  Flip, as while they accelerate mana, they don't accelerate your landbase, which is what you actually care about. While paying 4 mana to Summoner's Pact may seem daunting, it's actually not really an issue - as with sufficient ramp you'll easily be able to pay for it and the Swarm. Its a staple of Prime Titan decks for a good reason.

Never go over 60 cards. The current cards I think are questionable/droppable are:

  • Vastwood Surge, Eureka Moment, Migratory Greathorn and Quandrix Cultivator: 3-or-4 mana is a lot for this kind of effect, and generally quite slow. By the time you have the mana to cast these, you should be already at a point of not needing them. Aim for the cheaper ramp I'd suggested. In addition to what I'd suggest above, Sakura-Tribe Elder is stronger than all these cards, and a good potential replacement.

  • Prosperous Innkeeper, Lotus Cobra, Tangled Florahedron  Flip: Your goal should be putting a lot of lands into play quickly, not just making a lot of mana. Mana on its own doesn't actually help you get anywhere, as your Swarm needs land drops, and a lot of existing lands in play.

  • Mana Leak feels like a sideboard card at-best. I'm not sure it works particularly well here, especially as by the time your engine is running, your opponent might also have enough lands to pay the cost.

If I were building this list with budget in-mind, it'd probably look something like:

I would swap some of the ramp cards higher on the mana curve to more 2-mana ramp. With your commander being 4 CMC, the more 2 mana ramp you have the more likely you'll get them out one turn early. So I'm looking at things like Quandrix Cultivator (cool card regardless) and Nissa's Expedition . Maybe switch them for a Mind Stone , or Three Visits , or Farseek (this last one with an added inclusion of lands like Breeding Pool if it's within your budget, or more budget cards like Rimewood Falls or Mystic Sanctuary )

If you want to play with planeswalkers, Jace, Mirror Mage might be a cool addition.

Orvar, the All-Form is a sweet card, but I don't think this deck has enough instants and sorceries that could trigger his ability for the inclusion to be worth it. Either cut Orvar, or make sure you start adding more spells that can take advantage of it (maybe more clone token making spells).
