23 lands is a little light for a deck wanting to hit 5 mana on turn 5 every game. I would go up at least two more. Also, Battlefield Thaumaturge seems a little weak here. I'd cut the Voyage's End (low impact) and the thaumaturges and put in a 2 more lands and some Omenspeakers

I'm Thinking Omenspeaker but I might not switch it out at all. Since I'm going to FNM tonight sideboard help is needed!

right now Omenspeaker is good because she can block most aggro decks and can help get the cards you need or bottom cards you don't need or can't use. Other than that i also don't know what would be a better replacement for her at the moment.

This deck is great. I noticed you switched out Taigam's Scheming for Anticipate, which in my opinion was the better choice. I haven't gotten a chance to playtest it yet, but as far as I can see, Jeskai Barricade is inferior to Seeker of the Way.
Here's my reasoning:
Jeskai Barricade comes into play. Sends back an Ornithopter to trigger Midnight Guard's ability. It's already become redundant; if you don't have a Retraction Helix in hand, the combo can't happen. It will only trigger Altar of the Brood's ability twice, and while milling an opponent for two can help, it can also hurt if you're fueling their Delve for Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time if you don't have your combo ready. It also has no synergy with Zephyr Scribe, since it only bounces your creatures. Sure, it's a decent body with flash and can bounce a creature before damage to remove it from the field, but that isn't the goal of the deck. Omenspeaker can be used as a decent blocker already, and if need be, can be boosted with Spidersilk Net to stay alive for a heavy block. There's no reason to keep a 0/4 Defender when you have this option. If it isn't pushing your deck to win on turn 4 or 5, then it shouldn't be in the deck at all.
Seeker of the Way on the other hand, can provide you with a variety of things: incidental lifegain, combat damage, and even a decent blocker if you have a Gods Willing handy. Not only that, but your opponent may not guess right away the type of deck you're running if you play a Seeker on Turn 2. Finally, if you haven't been able to land an Altar of the Brood to shoot off the infinite mill combo, Seeker of the Way can still be infinitely boosted as long as you have Midnight Guard/Zephyr Scribe, Ornithopter/Spidersilk Net and Retraction Helix.
Just my two cents though. Love the idea and can't wait to try out at FNM (when I actually get a Friday off!) :D.

Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Karametra's Acolyte, Deathmist Raptor, See the Unwritten, Courser of Kruphix. Its tacky, but easy to do when your curve is t1 mystic t2 courser t3 Karametras Acolyte t4 Ugin or Colossus, you already have Voyaging Satyr in the build, you could easily build this like mono green then splash a color to dig with.

Isochron Scepter because boomerang/sceptre is death for opposing land plays and mana leak becomes 'your opponents next spell costs (3) more to cast'. Its brutal.I'd replace the thassas, with isochron, and dictate with Howling Mine, perhaps running both. I feel like the Omenspeaker should be something else, (I'd want to splash green for Mystic snakes and Fog, but thats me) Dispel , Spell Snare , Remand, Eye of Nowhere and Izzet Guildmage for a 'return all their lands to their hand' plan. There are lots of fun options, and cheap answers dependent on local metagame.
