Sacrifice any number of lands. Search your library for that many land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

Love this decklist and i've finally started to build it, expansive cards first. So the Cradle etc are already in!~ I already read a bit through the comment section and a lot of cards where i went i might wanna put that in you gave perfect explanation why not to.
I just wonder on a few more cards. In my opinion the deck is quite liniar and has 1 (maybe 2 ways to win) (i havent played it yet ofc so i dont know for certain).
So the combination wich im curious about is: Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle + Prismatic Omen + Scapeshift on itself Valakut is live from 5 mountains, wich in your deck shouldnt be to hard to get on the table and its extra damage. If for some reason you can get your hands on Prismatic Omen and a Scapeshift or by that time any other land that you ramp for, youll be doing some serious extra damage and providing and alternative win con. One of my friends always runs this in his Lord Windgrace deck and its really a steady way of finishing the game.
Also what are your thoughts on Zendikar's Roil and what are your reasons not to run it?

I think it might be better to get some Hydras in here, Kalonian Hydra is a beast with enough mana. While Hedron Crab does have landfall, your deck is not a mill deck and so I think its best to focus on bigger blue green creatures such as Nezahal, Primal Tide , Ghalta, Primal Hunger , End-Raze Forerunners , Rampaging Baloths as reliable finishers.
For your earlier game, Incubation / Incongruity can act as a fisher for more cards or a removal spell, extremely versatile.
It's a bit expensive, but Scapeshift can win you the game, with probably 6-7 lands entering the battlefield in 1 turn in the later game.

You may want to consider Angelic Renewal in this deck. The way it works with Evoke, you pay the Evoke cost, and by sacrificing Renewal, you get to keep the creature, as well as the ETB when returns to the battlefield. I've run the interaction in Pauper decks, and it's hilarious to do things like turn-2 Renewal, turn-3 Mulldrifter to draw 4 and get a 2/2 flier. You can do similar things by exiling the creature before it's sacrificed with Parallax Wave , Deadeye Navigator , Roon of the Hidden Realm , and Endless Sands . If you like that plan, I would include AEthersnipe and Walker of the Grove , too.
I'm also a little confused as to why you're not running Scapeshift in a Gates deck, especially one full of Landfall creatures. Other good land-fetch cards include Skyshroud Claim , Hunting Wilds , Ranger's Path , Wood Elves , Krosan Verge , Nature's Lore , and Karametra, God of Harvests , all of which fetch your Shocklands.
Path of Ancestry is fantastic in tribal decks, and it is an absolute staple in 5-color tribal decks.
The final thing I would do is include some looting effects and self mill that won't put your Gates in the yard, since your commander wants expensive Elementals to reanimate. Kiora, Master of the Depths and Mulch could be good on the mill side, and Faithless Looting , Frantic Search , Greater Good (You can sac Evoked elementals in response to the trigger! Value!), Sultai Charm , and Chart a Course are all good for looting. Also, Surveil can help to fill the yard, as well. Try Notion Rain and Price of Fame (Good for killing Commanders!).
As for cuts, I would lose Brighthearth Banneret (land ramp is just better most of the time), Fertilid (7-mana Explosive Vegetation is bad, even if it has recursion), Rubblehulk (no ability, so it'll just get chumped for days. Run Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar if you want the land-count effect), and Tyrant of Discord (too expensive for a random effect).

Are you not playing Scapeshift because you don't like 1-card combos? If you've got the money, you could probably do with Intuition since it's basically a Realms Uncharted you can grab Life From the Loam with.

While the deck has some pricier cards, there're budget options for it too. Link up with me if you're keen to give this a try and we can discuss further. Cheers!

I think you should try out either Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Both tend to control the board until they can win with either Curiosity or Ophidian Eye . OG Niv is easier on a budget mana base, but paying more for new miv might be preferable for you if you're okay not turbo'ing him out and playing a slower game. Mizzix of the Izmagnus is also very combo-y if you're into Izzet. If you want to go Temur, Animar, Soul of Elements is typically build as a combo deck using Ancestral Statue to go infinite, and the popular Animorphs build is very budget friendly and lends itself well to the Pickles Lock combo of Brine Elemental + Vesuvan Shapeshifter . The Gates deck is a control deck that wins with your favorite one-card combo, Scapeshift . It's a one-trick pony, but if you're into it, I would build it with Child of Alara at the helm. Riku of Two Reflections might be for you if you just want all the value until you can find whatever wincon you like. Finally, if it's the rampy, storm bit you like about Nic Fit and Scapeshift, I love my Tatyova, Benthic Druid druid tribal deck. Chaining land ramp and drawing cards feels very stormy, even more so when going off with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , Guardian Project , or Beast Whisperer with Seton, Krosan Protector , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Stone-Seeder Hierophant , or Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip.

I could but i wouldn't know what to cut, as you can see it is in my maybeboard. Personally i am not runnning it right know as it leaves a dead turn when you play it on turn 4 the advantage that the Thaumatic Compass Flip + Wayward Swordtooth gives is that you can ramp in a more active manner giving you a 'free' threat later if not removed. That being said i can see the advantage of a an easier way to ramp. If you are planning on making a similar deck i would recommend cutting The Mending of Dominaria . Against aggro this card is way to slow and before a Scapeshift turn it does similar things to Circuitous Route . So yeah you could certainly add Circuitous Route but i feel their is nothing i would want to cut it for besides maybe The Mending of Dominaria but the upside of this card against control is too big to ignore.

Ok--So here are a couple suggestions on lands--staples--if you will, that I include with this style deck/commander etc that I mentioned briefly above.
Fetchlands are great with Omnath and all of your creatures with Landfall like Avenger of Zendikar More the merrier. Some of the fetches have been reprinted, some haven't. So depending on the one you want, there could be a wide range in price. There are Budget equivalents like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse and Mountain Valley there's a couple others too. These traditionally aren't as good because they only get Basic lands and they come into play tapped. However, they get the job done on Landfall triggers should you need an option while you're waiting to upgrade to that Wooded Foothills this one, luckily, has been reprinted in Khans block I believe. It wouldn't be a bad idea to look at a few others while we were at it though. Windswept Heath might be good Blighted Woodland and Naya Panorama better or cheaper options for sure.
Color Balance: Nothing sucks more than drawing a bunch of one color mana--so lets even it out some with lands that tap for either color.
Rootbound Crag , Stomping Ground , Reflecting Pool , Command Tower , Raging Ravine Utility Lands: Maximize your land. Make it work for you.
Kessig Wolf Run , Rogue's Passage , Thespian's Stage , Miren, the Moaning Well , Temple of the False God , Skarrg, the Rage Pits
There are others--Tribal specific that are good-- Contested Cliffs for example would be good if you had more beasts or Primal Beyond if you had more Elementals.
Now-- I had thought about it some more since I commented earlier today and I have a few more suggestions. I'm just going to suggest the cards, I won't offer cuts at this time, because I'm not looking to change your deck completely, just give you some thoughts if you were wanting to tap into your Commander more or just be cool fun R/G beats deck etc. I'll leave that up to you. Happy to help in any way though.
Synergy: There are a few other cards that would work well with Omnath and I'll list here.
Solemn Simulacrum The Lonely Robot draws a card and gets you a land = Landfall trigger/ramp.
Scapeshift Cast this when you have Omnath and it could be awesome. Cast it with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in play, and thats a lot of damage. Prismatic Omen Doesn't care what land you get--just saying.
Craterhoof Behemoth takes all those shiney new Elementals and/or Plant tokens from Avenger of Zendikar and makes them Big stompy.
Warstorm Surge I'll just leave this here.
Skyshroud Claim Yeah, in play.
About this one particular card:
Burst Lightning Ok, I do think you should probably swap this card with something that straight kills something gives you a little more versatility. Perhaps something like Atarka's Command or Decimate or Skullcrack or Beast Within or Banefire
Other EDH Staples and Protection:
Chord of Calling
Some other cards to save towards I guess.
I hope this helps. I rambled.
