Creature — Human Wizard
When Omenspeaker enters the battlefield, scry 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

Ensoul Artifact might be a good addition maybe Darksteel Citadel so you have an indestructible 5/5 turn 2. Omenspeaker to scary for answers. If you get a chance take a look at my Midnight Ornithopter Retraction

Like Verbatiam said, you should have at a maximum 60 cards in your deck. To help you get there, let's start by removing the worst cards.
Armory Guard: This guy doesn't have enough power and toughness for his cost, and his ability is irrelevant since you have no gates in your deck.Hundred-Handed One would fill armory guard's job in a much better way.
Aven Battle Priest: As above, he isn't powerful enough for his cost. Creatures with a cost of 6 mana should usually be good enough to win you the game if they are left unchecked, which this guy does not. A classic example of a winning 5-drop is Serra Angel.
Ephara's Radiance: there are much better ways to gain life than this enchantment. It will usually be a dead card and you will be much better off without it. You already have Chaplain's Blessing which is much better for the same cost.
Common Bond: As good as the art is, this card just is not worth it. It only gives a minimal boost and would need to cost less to be remotely good. Strength of the Tajuru is a more costly but better version of this.
Greatsword: instead of using so much mana to give a creature +3/+0, you should focus on casting the creatures you already have in the deck. Behemoth Sledge is much stronger despite giving one less power, since it gives evasion (the trample ability), which is very important, and lifelink which is great at keeping you safe.
Griffin Sentinel: This one might deal a bit of damage and block some, but the advantage he gives you is definitely not worth the mana. For example, Deadly Recluse and Omenspeaker do a much better job on defence.
Eagle of the Watch: This creature is too small for its vigilance ability to matter and will be killed the first time it blocks. Not worth your mana. The Spectral Shepherd you already have is better than this.
One thing you will need to learn to build a strong deck is to evaluate cards and cut off the weaker ones. A rule of thumb is that any creature card with a power and a thoughness lower than its mana cost needs to have good abilities to be worth putting in a deck. For example, no one runs Gray Ogres, since they are garbage, but some decks might use Gigantomancer, a 1/1 for 8 mana, for its incredible ability.
The best way to evaluate cards is by playing them, and so it is in games that you will notice which cards you should cut from your deck.
As a final note, the average amount of lands for a deck is 24 out of 60, or 2/5 of the deck.
I hope this will be helpful to you and that you will have a blast playing Magic!

I feel like you would just have a hardctime winning here. Like I expected few creatures but you have single digits... I feel like this would just get ovverrun no matter how innocuous you appear. I would add at least a few pay off guys: Dragonlord Silumgar(steals and keeps folks away), Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon(can end a game), Bloodgift Demon(phyrexian arena on a nice body), Inkwell Leviathan(brutal power that!/so hard to kill), Keiga, the Tide Star, etc. Colors have plenty to choose from. I'd also add a few early drop canon fodder guys like: Omenspeaker, Augury Owl, Dark Confidant, etc. To protect Lichu(cuz he will be a target): Champion's Helm, Swiftfoot Boots, etc to join the lone lightning greaves. You might even want a few high end pay off spells like In Garruk's Wake or Rise of the Dark Realms. Maybe Languish or Toxic Deluge, Deathbringer Regent, or Imprisoned in the Moon(perma stop a commander). You have few creatures so wipes seem a basic idea. Lastly unsure but how would Living End work with Dralnu? Free? If so might be worth it.

I don't think Bioshift really has a place in this deck. I don't think it does enough to be worth including. Instead you should definitely include Rapid Hybridization or Beast Within as you really need some form of mainboard removal as many creatures need to be killed ASAP or they will cost you the game. I don't really think Omenspeaker really does much for you here either. You should be trying to go for the tempo route: building up a board presence as quickly as possible, and Omenspeaker is more of a sit back and wait kind of card.

This is my mono green counters list-Mono green county- its a lot lower on the curve and runs some more efficient draw spells- I think yours might do better running a bunch of counterspells in place of cards like Omenspeaker, cutting the number of cards in the 4 drop slot. Inspiring Call and Hardened Scales are insanely strong, and this deck could pretty much run off of just a playset of Cloudfin Raptor, Experiment One, Renegade Krasis and Avatar of the Resolute. You might want to run Eldritch Evolution to 'suddenly, prime speaker', or perhaps Chord of Calling. Biomass Mutation adds a lot of power/toughness mid attack. Not an Omenspeaker fan compared to Vinelasher Kudzu or more Avatar of the Resolute.

There were further updates, if you look.
For example a later version dropped the 1 drops and spellstutters for Omenspeaker. I'm brewing at list currently

I would recommend putting in another Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and taking out one Phenax, God of Deception, just since you only really need 1 phenax to do well. you may want to take out a few lands or put in fetches, as 24 is kinda a lot. some board clear may be helpful, as you can easily block creatures, but removal may be more difficult. since you are running blue, counterspells could be really helpful. Something like Profaner of the Dead or Displacement Wave could be really helpful to get rid of stuff. Diabolic Tutor is pretty costly, so you may want to take it out in favour of something more usable early on. Omenspeaker could probably be replaced with something just generically better, as it doesn't contribute much. Better lands are always a bonus.
