I think some Thoughtseize with Surgical Extraction/Extirpate would help allot against control-combo decks. I approve Lavamancer over Goblin Guide too. But maybe Guide > Kird.

Surgical/Extirpate side, maybe you can cut Might for 2 Seize md and complete the set post side.

cutting blue seems like a good idea to me. Making tribal flames better doesnt seem worth having to shove cards like meddling mage into a format where all the best cards cost 1 or 2.

Why not try Aether Vial? Would smooth out the mana and maybe you play Knight of the Reliquary as well?

I don't like Meddling Mage either, but Tribal for 5 is a must.

Sideboard is missing Kitchen Finks.

I'd not play less than 21-22 lands main deck. Probably 22 with 1 Horizon Canopy.

Weather Tidehollow Sculler is good enough depend on Metagame. Right now I'd rather have Qsali Pridemage.

+1 Loam Lion main deck, also. 13 1 cc creatures is the good number.

Ancient Grudge was an amazing card for my SB. I would highly recommend it.
