Shizuko, Caller of Autumn
Legendary Creature — Snake Shaman
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player adds (Green)(Green)(Green) to his or her mana pool. This mana doesn't cause mana burn (which no longer exists). Until end of turn, this mana doesn't empty from that player's mana pool as phases end.

Shizuko, Caller of Autumn has honestly only rarely backfired in my experience. She's usually huggy enough that no one will use up removal just to deny the table mana. The major threats I've had in Seshiro are fliers, running out of gas, and overextending.

the_earl_0f_grey holy, Thanks so much, now I need to relook at everything haha, I have been really worried about cards like Shizuko, Caller of Autumn & Gauntlet of Power Giving out mana. but I was also running mana dry in the early stages because the snake shamans arnt the lowest of costs.

Okay, so I do realize you ask for possible cuts, but I've honestly got too many things to list option-wise to say where a cut could/should be made. Some examples of options you may have missed:
Weird Harvest, Mana Flare, Dictate of Karametra, Howling Mine, Heartwood Storyteller, Shizuko, Caller of Autumn, Skullwinder, Horn of Greed, Helm of Awakening, Spectral Searchlight, Primal Vigor, Seed the Land, Bubble Matrix, Flux, Beacon of Immortality, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Liege of the Hollows, Ghosts of the Innocent, Pulsemage Advocate, Orzhov Advokist, Wishmonger, Tangleroot. Storm Cauldron, Grove of the Burnwillows, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Arbiter of Knollridge, Dakra Mystic, Concordant Crossroads, and
(my last two to mention that I cannot believe YOU don't even mention them how could you possibly have missed these and I'm metaphorically running out of air here)
whew. Okay, firstly I do not do "tldr" summaries, so I'm afraid you'll have to sift through the above the slow way (which that isn' even an exhaustive list btw).
Secondly, to help you sift through the above I would ask is there a specific manner in which you are wanting to help people? Do you like seeing certain gameplans win or hate others? By example is that I can see some cards like Hive Mind being too helpful possibly towards "storm" decks, but if you're playing a catch-all type of group hug then that's no big deal.
Another idea is are you into fringe group hug effects? By which I mean playing Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth just to help everyone mana fix that uses black. Or even playing Ink-Treader Nephilim in tandem with say Tempt with Reflections to give everybody an extra copy of literally every creature on their board and them some. Heck, if you ran Rite of Replication you could let everyone have EVERY creature on the board. The nephilim isn't directly a group hug card here but it has the potential to hug. Kinda like Guided Passage no?
Just some food for thought. ;D

Dude, you are my hero. I wanna play this sooo hard. +1 with no doubt.
I'd suggest Godsend as another legendary weapon. Also, you might have lots of fun with Myojin of Life's Web. If you need a little more mana ramp, Shizuko, Caller of Autumn or Sakiko, Mother of Summer might be worth trying.
I'm not a jealous person at all, but dude, i want this deck.

Thanks for all the upvotes and comments, guys!!
Clay_Teapot, I do have both of the Tempt cards you mentioned in this deck already. Tempt with Reflections is especially fun when I copy something like Magus of the Vineyard. In a four player game, if everyone takes me up on my offer, each player gets 16 green mana at their first main phase. Hilarity ensues!
And finally...metalevolence, you sound like a fun guy, wound a little tight perhaps, but love your ideas on threat assessment.
