here's the deck list, mana is actual very good (the only double colour cards are black which is the main colour of the deck) you have a decent game vs aggro with rhino and languish and a pritty good game vs control with main deck kiora's and obs!

being 4 colors, bring to light looks like a must have. extra copies of your best spells. the problem is what to take out, you should know that by testing.
you're not ramping towards anything nor leaving mana up for anything else than the ramp spell, so my guess is that it doesn't belong here. i'd go with some extra spot removal to help you survive. same thing applies to despise, 4 seems like too many copies, try 2 and you get 6 spot to add maybe 3 ultimate price and 2 either anticipate or read the bones to smooth your draws. taking out 2 ruinous path to add one utter end looks nice too. now you have 2 free slots for bring to light. still needing 1 or 2 more.
you lack win cons (only 2 ojutai, the rhinos and the PWs. too little with so many spot removal around that can hit them all). i'd take out 1 or 2 den protector and add 1 dromoka or 1 silumgar (probably silumgar, the "control magic" one, as he is fetchable with bring to light by just adding the 5th color). now, 1 less rhino makes sense to fit the 3rd bring to light.
and speaking of that, if you bring in red, radiant flames suddenly becomes an option, although is a nonbo with bring to light, you could split languish 3/1 or even 2/2.
in the end, the final deck should look very similar to that of LSV he posted on CFB.
