I really like the idea of this deck, off the top of my head, I like Hangarback Walker in here over the Ballista.

Maybe cut a land or 2 for some proliferate cards like Contagion Engine, Tezzeret's Gambit, or Inexorable Tide

Not sure if it's in your budget, but you have to get Contagion Engine in there.

Same with Parallel Lives

Maybe sneak in infect creatures like Blight Mamba and Phyrexian Hydra(there are definitely better ones, but those were the 2 that came to mind)

Doubling SeasonPrimal Vigor and Strionic Resonator are all going to make thing get out of control quickly in the game. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine would be good. i def. agree that Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice is a must and with green you need to take advantage of your mana ramp. how about the vivid lands they come with counters and would help fix your mana. Teferi, Temporal Archmage for card draw and for certain on his final ability, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Steadfast, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated. should be in there. i do agree with multimedia on what to take out except for kiora thats a solid planeswalker some more card draw would be good also. and some protection for atraxa like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. here is how i built mine it's not super friends but it should give you some ideas. HydrAtraxa

Vesuva for the mana base.

Maybe Contagion Engine for proliferate and as a board wipe.

Sensei's Divining Top to smooth out draws and maximize Deploy the Gatewatch.

Teferi, Temporal Archmage, that emblem is insane

Inexorable Tide, Contagion Engine, or Viral Drake for Nissa? I would run Viral Drake because Nissa can cheat it out, so the only problem would be what to take out. Maybe Avenger of Zendikar as it is very slow? For Inexorable Tide its not a creature so no cheating it out, and you cheat out creatures with Nissa, Steward of Elements, and play cards with Future Sight and Vizier of the Menagerie style cards, so maybe? Since you need to tap for it, you can really use Contagion Engine one per turn, but it will put two loyalty counters on Nissa, and I don't know if it is that dramatic of an effect. Overall great deck, great idea I hope you have fun with it. +1 Upvote

If you want, might want to exchange guilded lotus with Everflowing Chalice. Combine the chalice with 4 counters, The Chain Veil and Tezzeret the Seeker and you have infinite planeswalker abilities every turn.

If you're willing to risk a bit of group hug, Primal Vigor may help with the counters. Also, some of the proliferate engines like Inexorable Tide or Contagion Engine will help dramatically if you can find room for them.

Also with the lack of creatures, some level of hate limitation may be worth considering, like Dueling Grounds, Peacekeeper and Silent Arbiter.

Also, while no one likes the gatewatch, the Deploy the Gatewatch and Call the Gatewatch are fantastically useful tutors for your super fam.

That covers everything I can think of immediately. Might have other suggestions in the future. :)
