I love Atrasta and think she should be in here. Especially if you have a blue heavy meta. I cant say anything bad about Heroic Intervention and I run it in my juices up Slimefoot deck but I dont think you want it. I don't think there are a ton of destroy all enchantments in the meta but they may eventually add them to combat you. I would wait to add it till then.
A few cards I found are Sapseep Forest to gain life to beat your opponents in a hurricane battle. You need 1 more life than everyone so why not a fetchable land that you can use at end step if you have the extra mana.
Fruition was another end game 1 mana play this and then hurricane effect.
Myth Unbound didn't seem amazing but it caught my eye. I don't think it's good enough but I thought I'd mention it since you don't care much about Nissa.
Last one was Gravity Well but it's super meta dependent and I could see it doing work or being completely dead based on what your playing against.

Ravenrose - Heya! I'll have to think about Gaddock. I love the flavor text and his role in their lore so I'll consider it down the road.
I agree one ramp spell is quite limited. I'll make room for them tonight when I get home and update. Pollen Lullaby is awesome! I've never seen that card. Definitely ordering a copy. I will look to see if I have copies of your other recommendations. They seem like fun (other than Revelation , I like a little mystery lol).
Thanks for the great ideas!

Gaddog Teeg would still be a worthy addition to the deck as one of the 99. I think you should consider Revelation , Dictate of Karametra and Otherworldly Journey . Pollen Lullaby is flavourful and totally on theme. Primal Command may also be of some use. One ramp spell is not enough. Explosive Vegetation , Cultivate and Peregrination are worthy ramp. Wild Pair ia a fun addition but not a mandatory one.
Hope this helps!

MagicalHacker I actually prefer showing my hand when running this deck; the entire idea here is to shift the flow of the game and make it fairly unpredictable or chaotic, and the kinds of things five color chaos can just have sitting in the hand and/or draw into also tend to be the kinds of things that force opponents to avoid optimal lines of play, opening them to more interaction. It's always amusing when I'm one blue/white off Dovescape and I watch everyone start dumping their key combo pieces right into each other's opportunistic removal and/or counterspells when I wasn't even planning on playing Dovescape yet. Revelation is also an Enchant World, which tends to confuse players the first few times they see it.
Zur's Weirding was the other revealing enchantment I ran, but sadly that card tends to translate to "players will be forced to discard anything that is not a basic land unless someone happens to have removal in hand or a way to cheat removal in" once used in a game with even one slightly serious player.

Yesterday, the possibility of bluffing strategies came into my mind. We all know that some card games usually include psychological strategies (Poker, etc.). In my opinion also Magic t.G.
So, what if we cast Revelation for instance, while we have a lot of removal spells in our hands. Would not create this a psychological pressure for opponents because they know that you can counter or remove their spells? Maybe this "remove-revealing" strategy could prevent them from playing their combos?
I have an similar strategy-example: My opponent played Vedalken Shackles, so I had the really huge problem to cast my Master of Cruelties but had no removal spells. This situation was very bad for me because he slowed me down and killed me with very simple life loss effects.
This leads me to an another point. Let us assume that we cast Seal of Doom and/or Seal of Cleansing instead of revealing our hand. I think this can create a similar effect. Would you prefere this strategy more than the first one?
Now my first question: Have you ever made experiences like that and if yes, with which cards?
Second question: This strategy can be very annoying I think - especially the hands revealing one. Would your playgroup accept it?
Last question: What is your opinion about this strategy?
Thank you for your time :)
