Hells - Squandered Resources and Borborygmos Enraged were added to try to present a wincon more consistently, along with Seismic Assault and Titania, Protector of Argoth. While I’m still not sold on Borborygmos and Assault, the Titania/Resources pairing has been great. As for Courser/Nissa/Tracker, the deck really needs to dig through the land half of the deck to find action, which these all do. Courser is probably the weakest of the three, but sometimes you build your own Oracle of Mul Daya and it’s worthwhile. Nissa pretty much always emblems the turn after it comes down, the pattern of EoT wrath, untap into Nissa is pretty common. And tracker lets you “save” draws so that when you have nothing else to do you can dump mana into that.

epiCore Yeah Land's Edge and Seismic Assault are both alternatives to Borborygmos, although I would prefer Seismic Assault since other players can't use it, and technically since Land's Edge is a world enchantment it gets removed when other players play world enchantments, like Living Plane which is in this deck.

You can respond to Abrupt Decay by discarding more lands to Seismic Assault, so I wouldn't say it gets blown out. Krosan Grip is probably the card you meant, but that doesn't really see too much play.

So most builds of the deck are running two wincons nowadays: Lightning Storm for an instant speed kill, and then Laboratory Maniac as we draw our entire deck and then can cast Serum Visions to immediately win off the trigger.

With this said, a variety of other wincons can be played in the deck, for example Conflagrate via flashing it back and discarding your hand (though here I would always keep Pact of Negation in hand regardless); the problem here is it isn't instant speed and can be hurt by graveyard hate, notably Rest in Peace.

Another somewhat well-known win-con is Seismic Assault which essentially accomplishes the same thing however a real problem with it is the fact that it gets hit and blown out by Abrupt Decay.

That really encompasses the combo based options for the deck but many Ad Nauseam players like to add a little spice to the side in the form of flex slots. Grave Titan is generally the popular plan B out of the side however I have seen many variants where people have tried: Godhead of Awe, Dragonlord Dromoka, Keranos, God of Storms, and even a Gifts Ungiven package for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite/

You could afford 1 or 2 Seismic Assault if you want, or be edgy and play Lightning Storm. Or splash green for Groundskeeper? I think lightning storm would be a great finisher.

I also have a nontraditional 5 color lands deck: Death by Manlands

Borborygmos Enraged or Seismic Assault alongside the Creeping Renaissance you already run is a great back up win condition.

Thanks for the suggestions. I definitely like the addition of Nissa, Vital Force and Windgrace's Judgment. Dakmor Salvage can provide an infinite loop with GitFrog and Seismic Assault, but I would also have to include cards that shuffle back in as well, so maybe if I move the deck away from Toolbox and into dedicated combo it is something I would consider. Storm Cauldron is an interesting puzzle, but I think its ability is a still a big drawback for me as I'm trying to achieve a critical mass of lands.

Pariah is traditional. I've always preferred to rush a Wildfire, as most decks just can't recover from the land destruction, making the rest of the beatdown pretty simple.

Its also worth looking at fight effects- Guild Feud is usually game ending if you build around it, and splashing green for Domri Rade and Prey Upon sets up a very threatening pseudo-burn.

Its also worth looking at Seismic Assault/Swans of Bryn Argoll. Its the classic reckoner counterpart.
