Conduit of Ruin
Creature — Eldrazi

The first creature spell you cast each turn costs less to cast.

Ender666666, you don't think the Cluestone, Locket, Sol Ring, Staff of Nin , and Vessel of Endless Rest is enough? Plus I have Bontu's Monument , Heartless Summoning and Conduit of Ruin to reduce costs. My thought process behind the land count is as follows: with so many high cmc cards and the filtering of lands via Bloodstained Mire , Rocky Tar Pit and the panoramas, I want to make sure I'm hitting my land drops every turn.

One good interaction with Atla's ability are tutors that put creatures on the top of your library. If your budget allows it, I'd suggest Brutalizer Exarch , Conduit of Ruin , Sylvan Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Congregation at Dawn , Forerunner of the Empire (in case you run dinos), Mwonvuli Beast Tracker (situational). Pick and choose the ones that fit your deck better, if any.

Eledain It would seem that way, however, Goreclaw works out nicely with Ugin, the Ineffable & Conduit of Ruin and gives my big guns 1+/+1 & trample. Awakening zone is a light experiment for now, it allows me to throw out small blockers that also tap for colorless. I will be running this build in tournaments this week and will definitely be fine tuning it as I keep playing it out. In my sideboard Awakening Zone will be one of the first cards to be substituted. Of course if things do not work out I will re-work the deck~

Deck Edit 2:
Avatar of Slaughter out -> Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger in. I decided that the Avatar of Slaughter could backfire against me as much as help me as it gives ALL creatures double strike (including my opponents). As Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger very much benefits me, it seemed like an automatic replacement.
Skyshroud Elf out -> Conduit of Ruin in. Both of these cards are a form of ramp. Yes, the Elf can help me early on, but I felt the Eldrazi search capability of the Conduit of Ruin as well as making first creature spells I cast 2 cheaper was too good to ignore. In addition to this Conduit of Ruin is searchable by Mayael.
Vagrant Plowbeasts out -> Avenger of Zendikar in. Although the Vagrant Plowbeasts served a very good role in the deck, and one that I am not yet 100% sure that I want to loose, the effects of dropping an Avenger of Zendikar seemed too good to miss.
Worn Powerstone out -> Mirari's Wake in. In the few games that I have had with this deck, the card draw is great - the only thing that can hold it back is access to mana. With the addition of Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Mirari's Wake I hope to both drop creatures onto the battlefield with Mayael, as well as hard-cast should the need arise. In addition to the mana access, the +1/+1 will also help to boost the presence of the Plant tokens put onto the battlefield with Avenger of Zendikar .
Finally, to smooth out the mana a little bit more, I did the following changes (there seemed to be too much red, and sometimes not enough white).

I like that you removed the red from this and went with Aminatou, the Fateshifter .
Not sure how competitive you want to make this but here are some cards to think about:
Also you might want to look into the possibility of snow lands and Scrying Sheets
