If you would draw a card, you may instead choose land or nonland and reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a card of the chosen kind. Put that card into your hand and put all other cards revealed this way on the bottom of your library in any order.

Holy shit, you did it, lol. It looks good too, even under worst possible conditions. And if you're serious about keeping this deck, I've got some arguments to make it stronger. Like Far Wanderings instead of Nissa's Pilgrimage? I think it would be better to also tutor for Mountains and not having to hope for instants and sorceries, but Pilgrimage might be better for an early game strategy as it relies on a smaller graveyard. There's also Abundance instead of Perilous Forays? Each has pros and cons, just wanted to make an argument. I can see why this deck would love draw engines, so you should consider some cards like Chandra, Flamecaller, Skullclamp, and Slate of Ancestry? I'd prefer Slate over the Shamanic Revelation because you can just plop down all your lands and replace almost every card, and good with Parallel Lives. I like the rest of the draw engines though, so Skullclamp or Chandra could replace Tireless Tracker or something. So yeah. And if you need anything, I'm on tappedout a lot so just shoot a text my way.

Hey man thanks for the comment! My playgroup is very advanced so I had to put a lot of research into making my deck before playing. The starter decks would not work out for me sadly.
In terms of your suggestions, first of all, Sylvan Library is already in, but it has been performing exceptionally! Abundance I will definitely consider. Shaper's Sanctuary, while interesting, I don't think i'm going to get a lot of value off of. My stuff tends to be either all hexproof or not threatening enough to deal with, but Growing Rites of Itlimoc from Ixalan is of course amazing if I can afford the slot.
With the cost increasing cards, while hilarious, they can really nonbo with some of my other cards. This deck wants to be able to play my higher cost boardwipes, and I want to repeatedly cast Whitemane Lion and Stonecloaker for more ridiculous mana generation, so I don't think they would work out. Artifacts also don't add devotion, which is not good for me. Still, thanks for the help

Is this really your first edh build? Lol you shoulda seen mine! Freaking Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas that had no ramp other than sol ring and boros Clue stone... embarrassing honsestly. Good job on your first build
Since you're already ramping with your commander, cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben can be pretty obnoxious for those pesky blue players too, and won't much bother you. This includes Lodestone Golem tic an extent, Sphere of Resistance, and Trinisphere. Just a thought for your soft lock strategy.
As far as running out of gas, it doesn't much look like you should be with your list, you've got a lot of card draw and ramp, so you should be able to keep crapping out cards all you want. Though you can make serious use of Sylvan Library and Abundance in this deck, as well as the new enchantment from ixalan. I don't recall it's name but it basically gives you a card whenever an opponent removes something from your board.
Hope this helps a bit?

I'd cut some of the non-token making big dudes in favor of more card draw. I tried a few hands and usually was able to play out everything in it after just a few turns. Maybe consider the Sylvan Library and Abundance combo and cards like Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious since you are going wide with tokens. Gorgon's Head and Ashnod's Altar can be stupid fun with Ulasht also.

Yes, if for some reason you choose to only use Abundance on one or two of the draws then you will have to put the cards back that you actually drew or pay four life. However the synergy is that you replace all of your draws with choosing, revealing, and putting into your hand; so the synergy works to answer your original question.

seems pretty obvious to me. you simply choose NOT to draw any cards at all during your draw step, and instead replace all 3 draws with the effect of Abundance

I know that the Abundance + Sylvan Library combo is pretty well known and accepted. I know that the premise is that since Abundance causes a replacement effect that you actually haven't drawn cards and therefore don't need to put them back, but I was reading the gatherer rulings on Sylvan Library and I fail to understand how the combo can work.
In the gatherer rulings for Sylvan Library it states:
If you choose to draw two cards, then replace one or more of those draws with some other effect, the rest of Sylvan Librarys ability still happens. If youve actually drawn only one card that turn, you must choose that card and either pay 4 life or put it on top of your library. If you havent actually drawn any cards that turn, the rest of the ability has no effect.
To me that reads that if you choose to activate Sylvan Library's ability, that the remainder of the text occurs even if you use a replacement effect on the card draw actions. This would mean that you would need to either pay the 4 life, or put back the card you drew due to your normal draw step. Can anyone provide clarification on this?
