Default Sideboard help

I'm playing UWr stoneforge, splashing red for bolts main and REB sideboard. I'm looking for good answers to both RUGdelver and elves, and wrath is just a turn too slow usually. I've looked at firespout but 4 colors seems risky with all the wastelands running about, and engineered explosives seems pretty good against both decks, but i'm curious if anyone knows of something better.

My current list:

4 stoneforge mystic
4 snapcaster mage
3 vendilion clique

1 sword of fire and ice
1 umezawa's jitte
1 batterskull

2 jace the mind sculptor

4 swords to plowshares
3 lightning bolt
4 force of will
3 spell pierce
2 counterspell
4 brainstorm
1 ponder

3 tundra
2 volcanic island
1 plateau
3 flooded strand
3 scalding tarn
2 arid mesa
2 island
1 plains
1 plains
1 karakas
1 riptide laboratory
1 tower of the magistrate
1 academy ruins
2 wasteland

SB:
3 red elemental blast
1 spell pierce
2 tormod's crypt
1 surgical extraction
1 faerie macabre
3 pithing needle
1 manriki-gusari
1 disenchant
2 wrath of god

I would cut the sword of fire and ice and either put it in the sideboard, or eliminate it. Change the bolts to forked bolts or fire//ice if you want to have answers to elves, goblins, and to a lesser extent maverick and merfolk.

Instead of the sword of fire and ice run a lavamancer. Engineered explosives is also very good against tribal, maverick, and delver. You already have academy ruins, so you can reuse EE, and you are playing three colors, so you'll be able to kill KOTR as well. Not a terrible answer to miracles either.

Splash black if you want to beat RUG Delver and Elves. It will hurt your Merfolk matchup though.

Thanks I like the Fire/ice suggestions, the bolts have been decent but not quite pulling their weight.

SoFI is as close to a sacred cow as you get in my deck, though I have toyed around with different equipment configurations. Often I side down to 2 equipment for games 2 and 3 during matches.

Also, REB is so good against the spell based combo decks (high tide, storm, show&tell) that I feel like if I can find a decent facsimile of perish in Red then it's worth the trade off.
