Mage-Ring Network Discussion
2 weeks ago
For early testing of a 2-color deck, I usually run 10 basics of each color followed by more commonly available fixing (evolving wilds, guildgates ect). Then I look into utility-lands that may have synergy with the strategy/theme. Lastly I use general goodstuff lands (personally I enjoy Mage-Ring Network) or additional basic to round of.
Once I have tested the deck through a couple of games (5-6) and feel it is worth investing more time into, that is when I start optimizing with more efficient lands (still try to keep 5-6 basic per color). Fortunately the particular group I usually play with is rather casual so I can forgoe the more expensive cards, but each to their own.
Lands that I actively try too discourage newer players to use is Ravnica bouncelands and cards like Rupture Spire. The bouncelands are just to tempting for Land-destruction or steal-spells, while the spire are just bad.

I thought of a couple other things, sorry don't mean to spam your comments. I should really upgrade my account so I can at least edit things within the last 5 minutes.
Anyways I thought up a few land suggestions, Ancient Tomb, Eye of Ugin, Mirrorpool, Deserted Temple, Homeward Path, Mage-Ring Network, Terrain Generator, Temple of the False God Shrine of the Forsaken Gods and Wastes.
Some of these I suggested specifically since you had some eldrazi, but other than that there are a couple others like Terrain Generator, Homeward Path, Mage-Ring Network, etc that have other uses. You of course don't need all of these obviously, but a few I feel might help, as long as it does not detract from too many basics. You should have at least if anything maybe 1 Wastes as its a land that can be searched for and it might be helpful in that rare occasion you might want a colorless source for your World Breaker. Also a Wastes would be helpful if you do dceide to use Mirrorpool at all.
One more thing, Nissa, Vital Force if you want more things that care about lands, than she would be a good choice.
I gave a bunch of cards to think about and so feel free to ask for suggestions what might be able to be swapped out, and I will try to answer when I have more time a bit later.

nottobay Thanks for the suggestions. I had thought about Gemstone Array, but hadn't put it in because I thought it was a bit expensive (6 to get going). I ended up getting Pentad Prism(cheaper and comes with counters) and Druids' Repository(cheaper and has a free trigger) instead. I've never heard of Otherworld Atlas before and it seems interesting (at least a fun interaction). I'll give it a try. I already have Mage-Ring Network in this deck. The storage lands have worked really well with Atraxa (I'm getting two more: Calciform Pools and Saltcrusted Steppe).

Kraken's Eye also seems a bit out of place seeing as how you have no blue spells. Personally i'm not a fan of that cycle of artifacts but if you wanted to include any of them i'd go with Golem's Heart
