Tilonalli's Summoner -> Master of Waves --- Make tokens more efficiently

Book Devourer -> Fact or Fiction --- Cute, but it's really slow and expensive

Stalking Vengeance and Bane of Bala Ged -> Saheeli, Sublime Artificer and Chasm Skulker --- Too many expensive 7 drops that get killed before they can do anything. Bring the curve down and add more token production

Surveyor's Scope -> Manifold Insights --- I've always wanted to try this one, and more draw will help more than ramp that often does nothing.

Hey BasicBrett Thx for the comments. Yeah sorry about the Rix Maadi Reveler . I think Book Devourer is a good wheel effect. I have been considering Pull from Tomorrow but currenly only have one copy of that currently[IDK why] but is needed more in a different deck.

I would add more repeatable or a full 7 card draw via Elemental Bond , Kavu Lair , Mind's Eye , Magus of the Wheel , Dragon Mage , Book Devourer or Masked Admirers .

I also would go only 36 lands and add more ways to grab or put lands onto the battlefield. Walking Atlas , Terrain Generator , Wood Elves , Yavimaya Granger , Dawntreader Elk , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Fertilid (pairs nicely with Retreat to Kazandu ), Ondu Giant , Ranging Raptors , or Veteran Explorer are my go-tos depending on what I need.

Also Yeva, Nature's Herald would be great for flashing in Nikya to tap your (now) 2x producing lands and drop a threat/blocker.

I know a few of my suggestions are non-creature but Nikya will not always be on the battlefield. Hope something helps!
