Oath of Nissa
When Oath of Nissa enters the battlefield, look at the top three cards of your library. you may reveal a creature, land or planeswalker card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.
You may spend mana as though it were mana of any colour to cast planeswalker spells.

Sealed is a good way to learn how to build decks in "Limited" ie. formats where you start with a limited pool of cards - Draft and Sealed.
Look up some tips on how to construct a better prerelease deck before you go to any. There are some hard and fast rules for successful Sealed decks eg. Use 17 lands.
Then, if you enjoy Limited, look at advice on how to Draft. There are articles that cover the best "picks" (order to choose cards in), and the current archetypes for the latest set.
One final step - you can Draft right here on TappedOut, without laying down any money! Use the drop down lists at the top of the page and select "Draft Sim". That will give you excellent preparation.
The rules for building in Pioneer are very simple.
Any cards that have been Standard legal starting from, and including, sets from Return to Ravnica (RTR) onwards.
Current ban list is all the "fetch lands" (pay 1, sac land, then search for [type of basic land], and put it on the battlefield), Felidar Guardian , Oath of Nissa , and Leyline of Abundance . For now. New ban and restricted announcement each Monday, at the moment.
The fetch lands are the pricier ones you'd use in Modern. Right now the expensive lands for Pioneer are shock lands, and fast lands. I'll leave you to research those.
What this means is - all your Standard decks are Pioneer legal, and won't rotate. You'll need to upgrade their mana base (expensive), plus add other key cards like Thoughtseize (also expensive).
I would wait to see if Pioneer is popular at your LGS before investing in this format, although doing so will also probably raise the price of the staples (cards always used in each colour). Up to you if you want to grab those cards now to potentially save money.
If you make another version of your Standard deck I can suggest ways to make it more Pioneer competitive. Just mention me on it.
I don't want to confuse the issue by commenting on your current deck.

There was also a ban list as soon as Pioneer was announced, and it was glorious.
No fetch lands.
Next bans have already been announced, as I type this.

Suggestions: Put in: Ghave, Guru of Spores , Experiment Kraj , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Cultivate , Paradise Druid , Roalesk, Apex Hybrid , Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker , Zegana, Utopian Speaker , Voracious Hydra , Gyre Sage , Corpsejack Menace , Tuskguard Captain , Fertilid , Winding Constrictor . Take out: Oath of Teferi , Oath of Nissa , gags Teferi, Time Raveler (ugh), Primevals' Glorious Rebirth , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Swamp x2 and Plains x3 You should lean on green a lot because it has the most good counters stuff and will give you that sweet sweet mana. Creatures are the best theme in the deck because your commander is in fact a creature. Planeswalkers should just be seperate. Gj on your first deck.

You're already at 4 Lead the Stampede , plus a Harmonize and Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip for card draw and selection. I'd either cut all 4 Summoner's Pact or all 4 Elvish Harbinger to lower your deck size back towards 60.
Your land count is a tad low, imo, especially because you're only running 8 1-drop accelerators. I recommend swapping out Lead the Stampede for either Winding Way or Oath of Nissa to help smooth land draws.

Tuesday Night Modern 2-2
2-1 Infect Lost first game to being greedy and not leaving a blocker. Second game i Genesis Hydra choosing a Bird of Paradise for a blocker, and swing for lethal. Third game opponent went all in on Inkmoth Nexus turn 3 Primal Command shuffled the threat into the library.
2-0 Goblins Primal Command a lifesaver, was able to Karn, the Great Creator for a Trinisphere then second game down to one life Primal back enough life to fetch shock to be able to cast my Freed from the Real combo and search for Genesis Hydra for 100, play Karn, and tutor up Walking Ballista for lethal.
1-2 Humans First game top decked combo win before lethal attack. Second game aggro'd out, third game my opponent wrecked me top decking sideboard Plague Engineer naming Dryad and taking down all 3 of my mana dorks.
0-2 Burn Burned out turn 3 on both games...
Deck not fast enough. Consistent to turn 4 or 5, not working good enough for modern i'm afraid. Promising shell, seems like it needs another couple of support cards... Oath of Nissa not being able to choose enchantment is a real bummer.

There was 2 Ajani's originally. I came to the same realization, however, there are fringe scenarios where Ajani is very good. One downtick on Ajani allows Bolas and Ugin to ult after a single uptick each, and Garruk and Elspeth make tokens.
That is, of course, a 'win more' approach, since resolving Ugin, Bolas, Karn, or Elspeth is almost a guaranteed victory anyway. I might swap him out for a new walker. The deck hasn't been updated for quite some time. Karn, the Great Creator would be an obvious choice, but the deck as a whole was only FNM level competitive in 2016 / 2017. Now I'm not so sure, and putting the Karn / Lattice combo in would take away from the identity of the deck too much.
On the other hand, I haven't playtested with the London Mulligan yet, which could increase the consistency of the deck. At the very least, it should allow a start that contains a Tron land, a green source and an Oath of Nissa .
