At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Sacred Mesa unless you sacrifice a Pegasus.
: Put a 1/1 white Pegasus creature token with flying into play.

Sacred Mesa Discussion

She can play one of the eldrazi titans (kozilek, ulamog, etc) or a token sink such as Heliod, God of the Sun, Jade Mage, Mobilization or Sacred Mesa. Selesnya Guildmage if she wants more versitiltiy (although its pretty weak). Genesis Wave is the best for a mana sink imo, it basically wins at x = 8+
Edit: Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for more stompy goodness (especially good with elesh norn to wipe opponent's lands)

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is only like $4, so it really doesnt add that much $$ to the deck. i feel like you should probably include 2-4 of them. it also opens you up to higher drops and mana sinks like Sigil of the Empty Throne, Rise of the Hobgoblins, Sacred Mesa, Mobilization, Militia's Pride, Luminarch Ascension, Heliod, God of the Sun. Another suggestion is perhaps a 1-of Westvale Abbey Flip.

@Dark_Danda Lovin the suggestions. It's funny cause I was going to try and get my hands on some more cards like Fertile Ground to put in the deck as well as Mobilization or Sacred Mesa to add another combo. Also just picked up a copy of Sram's Expertise :)
I do love the synergies you listed that shut down opponents draws and such. Posessed portal is nasty and can do some sick things with my deck and some enchantments but I feel it's more appropriate in yours. I do want to build a bant prison enchantress deck and those cards would be amazing for that. I love Abundance and I did have it in the deck for its synergy with Sylvan Library but I felt on its own, it didn't provide enough impact.
Also, my play group ranges from people just trying to have fun to people who don't have fun unless they win and I'm in between. I like to win but not necessarily in the blink of an eye, ya know? So if I put a combo in, I generally stick to infinite tokens. Which I've been trying to find more. I know of the ones you've listed but I'm curious if you're aware of any more infinite token combos that could fit in my deck?
I really enjoyed looking through your deck and thanks again for your suggestions!

Khalni Gem you can find a better rock i think. plus this doesnt ramp you. it leaves you at parity. id only play this if you were playing a landfall deck. besides 4 is a little late to be ramping.
Spiny Starfish? i love the flavor but not sure what its doing here.
Thassa, God of the Sea shes awsome but one scry a turn isnt really worth the slot and you dont have the devotion to make her a creature. plus you dont have anything worth making unblockable.
Mana Breach can be kind of a nonbo with the rest of the deck. if you are staxing their lands down, this lets them always have one to replay untapped.
Lim-Dul's Vault is meh. it lets you stack your deck but at the cost of life and you dont actually draw the card.
Words of Waste you dont really have enough draw to make this worth it.
Ivory Tower same as above.
Venser's Journal i dont know if this is good enough. its 5 mana and by the time you can cast it you are going to need to be casting wraths, maintaining stax or trying to combo off. plus the life gain doesnt happen immediately. and again, ou dont have enough draw
Felidar Sovereign too easy to destroy. you have no ways of flashing it in.

Fine reasoning for all cards! Selfless Spirit will come down a lot when it gets out of standard. Keep an eye on that.
I run Concordant Crossroads and Thousand-Year Elixir for that type of haste. Also, Lightning Greaves does the job in a pinch and doubles as protection. Sacred Mesa is another card that spits out tokens for 2 like Ant Queen.

Then why run Sacred Mesa it ties up your mana you constantly sacking things to it. your deck doesn't use many buffs for tokens if u were gonna go that way Intangible Virtue would work better for that. Obelisk of Urd or Coat of Arms also boost your army.
