Nissa, Steward of Elements
Planeswalker — Nissa
+2: Scry 2.
0: Look at the top card of your library. If it's a land card or a creature card with converted mana cost less than or equal to the number of loyalty counters on Nissa, Steward of Elements, you may put that card onto the battlefield.
-6: Untap up to two target lands you control. They become 5/5 Elemental creatures with flying and haste until end of turn. They're still lands.

What are your thoughts on Nissa, Steward of Elements? The card looks sweet, but I haven't played with her at all. How has she been working for you?

Well, Metallic Mimic is not Standard legal anymore, neither is Nissa, Steward of Elements+1 Merfolk Mistbinder, + 3 Deeproot Waters -2 Crashing Tide, - Tempest Caller + 2 River's Rebuke, -4 Jade Bearer, maybe +3 Blink of an Eye as a bouncer or Merfolk Branchwalker for filter/ Manafix... Good Luck with your Queer build!

Green and blue don't have much removal but blocking. Bouncing: Repeal replenishes the card you spent. Spell Pierce and Spell Snare are cheap enough to fit (still cast something and leave 1 mana open) but are situational. Green: Prey Upon, Ancient Animus, Setessan Tactics, Epic Confrontation.

Very well. Here goes;
First and foremost, mana is very important. Your calculation is spot on. However, the & need a little bit of tuning. The base could go down slightly, while elevating your sources due to necessity. So, for example - Hinterland Harbor could become Blooming Marsh. Also, for your off color fetchlands (I know that they serve their purpose), if possible, try to make trades for Polluted Delta. It would seriously make all the difference. On another note; man lands are extremely useful in midrange/control shells. I know that Creeping Tar Pit is slightly expensive, but Lumbering Falls is a decent replacement, along with Treetop Village. The choice is yours regarding those two.
Now, as for actual meat & bones, I would start with the creature selection. I know that Snapcaster Mage is expensive, but Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip is a great substitute. the only drawbackis that Jace does not have Flash, however, Jace has reoccurring card selection and may or may not grant better draws.
Also, Scavenging Ooze is a very nice inclusion and gets larger with time, while helping out against weaker matchups, i.e. burn, dredge.
So for creature changes, in my humble opinion - I would do something like this:
4x Grim Flayer
Now, onto non-creature spells. Personally, removing Seasons Past, Disdainful Stroke, Disallow, and other clunkier spells would intensify this decks pressure aspect. I would also work on finding a way to trade or save up for some allotment of Assassin's Trophy. The card does what Abrupt Decay cannot when necessary. Allow me to make a suggestion;
-2x Spell Pierce
-1x Seasons Past
-3x Serum Visions
+1x Cast Down Hits Tron creatures and big bodies that Push cannot.
these two Jaces just do not apply enough pressure/concern for their mana investment.
for any of these as you see fit
+(x) Ob Nixilis Reignited
+(x) Jace Beleren
I hope that this assists you in your journey to build . feel free to pick my brain and pardon me for the late reply friend.

AdamChafee, you're really making me wish I had more people who weren't too... mhh.. aggressive, to play against. I think my version only ever had issues with a really fast aggro deck.
Vivien Reid seemed like a random add-on, with interesting effects! I was wondering why it was there. That makes sense. I figured something like Nissa, Steward of Elements would've stabilized this deck a bit more!
My +1/+1 counter deck is my most stable, and most fun of the 3 decks I own. haha.
Oh, I was looking at Pelt Collector as well. Works with Bramblewood Paragon in my deck, but I question how long it would stay on the field compared to Experiment One and, at least for my deck, Managorger Hydra...

Okay so the main problem here seems to be focus. Yeah your curve is bad, but usaDiabetic said enough about that. Imma talk about cards. Also I'm linking my deck at the bottom of this comment because it's very similar. Borrow what you will.
There are a lot of cards in this brew that I looked at and just thought 'what are you doing here'. Whether they didn't fit the theme or were just outright bad, these are some cuts I might suggest for taking USA's and my advice into account.
Crystalline Crawler. It feels kind of useless. Like, what is it there to do? It's either a subpar mana rock or a weak attacker/blocker.
Guardian of the Gateless doesn't interact with +1/+1 counters, is 5 mana, and really isn't great in general. Either you block a bunch of stuff and it dies or you just use it as 2 blockers, and there are much better things to do with 5 mana.
Majestic Myriarch, while powerful, is not a card for this deck. Once again there is the lack of interaction with counters and also it's just a big dumb creature with a lot of keywords. At 5 mana? Not worth it.
Noosegraf Mob will die far too quickly for any counters to be placed on him. In commander I'm casting 5 spells every turn by the time you're casting this guy.
Reflector Mage, while a good card in general, has no place in this deck. Once again, why is it here?
The same is true for Reveillark.
And for Vizier of the Menagerie.
And for Nissa, Steward of Elements.
And for Haunted Cloak, Inspiring Statuary, Panharmonicon, Paradox Engine, Approach of the Second Sun, Migratory Route, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Spitting Image, As Foretold, and Ancient Excavation. All of these are good cards, some really good, but their are other decks that could utilize them better. They're just goodstuff in this deck, where elsewhere they could really be something!
Incremental Growth nay not be worth it for 5 mana. There are much better plays for that cost.
And once again, after you put in some ramp, I have a ton of suggestions for replacing suboptimal cards here. If you'd like me to go into more detail on specific all-stars I will. If I came off as really harsh I'm sorry, this actually looks like one of the first commander decks I ever built myself so I felt like I had to comment, for nostalia's sake. Thanks for bearing with me through this behemoth of a comment, and happy brewing.

Hey friend! I think the weakest links are:
1.Nissa, Steward of Elements (pws don’t survive long enough to make their investment worth it unless it a dedicated deck for it),
Cryptoplasm because UG capitalizes most on etb creatures meaning he won’t always be useful unless your meta is ripe for fatties to copy like avacyn or whatever)
Thassa, God of the Sea. You aren’t Voltron so the unblockablility isn’t the most effective here.
Crawlspace feels like a bad propaganda to me, unless you have a ton of token strats in your meta.
Hope that helps!
