Tamiyo, Field Researcher is a pretty good green/white/blue card. Just saying.

certain cards you may really like for the +1 +1 counter strategy: Spike Weaver it gives you the ability to repeat fogs over and over against people who like to swing. Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder give you the ability to go hecka tall hecka quick and make your dudes as big as you want em. Plaxcaster Frogling gives you the ability to protect your boys with counters on them for hecka cheap.
More two mana rocks would be better in your deck then some of the others you chose. look up the full set of talisman cards and throw in some more signets. they recently just completed the cycle of all 10 talisman and those are just nice and cheap ways to assure you get mana faster. the first three turns of a non cEDH game tend to be all set up. having stuff to do on the first few turns is pretty sweet. also throw in Coalition Relic over Darksteel Ingot . you lose out on the indestructible, but gain so much more mana out of it because of atraxa
because you can be a bit more of a combo deck that a guarantee you the people you play with don't expect, you wanna have more tutors in the deck. now you COULD run counterspells, or hear me out, you could run more tutors. stuff like Eladamri's Call , Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Sylvan Tutor and of course instead of Diabolic Tutor try Mastermind's Acquisition . it's the same cost but also throws on a second mode for a wish so just in case people exile something you really could have wanted to use you can grab that bad boy back. also a better tamiyo to run is Tamiyo, Field Researcher .

Demarge okay that is a detailled breakdown, so first of all, thank you. You got some very good points with the transparency of my gameplan. That is an aspect I really did not think of until now. Tamiyo, Field Researcher is also a great suggestion as an alternative oathbreaker, I will definetely try some builds with the same strategy!

hmm doubling season oathbreaker without a planeswalker who can ult the turn they come down, imagine this deck with slight changes to the mana base with Tamiyo, Field Researcher as the oathbreaker. with season out the turn she comes down you just get a Omniscience , her +1 is pretty good levels of card draw, her - 2 can protect herself, open an opponent to attack, or slow opponent's strategies. of the possible planeswalkers huatli may just be the weakest two options for these colors for this strategy.
Now outside of that my main thought would be to maybe not show off your plans to win with your signature spell, maybe run it in the deck normally and run a tutor like Enlightened Tutor where you can toolbox your kit while also being a spell you'd like to cast more than once a game (though any g/w tutor spell can work well).

Use double square brackets around a card's name to link it. It's the easiest way to make sure everyone understands what's going in in your question: Tamiyo, Field Researcher , Omniscience , Enter the Infinite
I assume you're asking about the Oathbreaker format. If so, then no, this won't work. The signature spell is in the command zone, not your hand. Tamiyo's emblem won't allow you to cast it for free.

Just kind of spitballing at this point.
I really like the idea of the Oathbreaker format, but I also like a lot of the three color combinations, and realized some (actually half) of them had no current possible oathbreakers.
I started out thinking that I wanted Naya to be Huatli to lead a three-color dinosaur deck with Savage Stomp as the signature spell. But then I thought that the most interesting Mardu option would be a Sorin / Nahiri flipwalker, which got me thinking about doing it as a set with ties to the aftermath of the War of the Spark, which would probably be something like
- Samut, Vindicated with Heroic Reinforcements
- who returns to Amonkhet having defeated the god-pharaoh she'd previously dissented against
- Three planeswalkers who broke from Bolas and are now hunting down those that didn't
- Kaya with Assassin's trophy?
- Vraska with Connive//Concoct?
- Ral with Justice Strike or Deafening Clarion?
- Sorin / Nahiri with Bedeck//Bedazzle?
- since they each feel betrayed by the other and resume their conflict
No real justification for the color shifts for Kaya and Ral, though.
I think I'd personally be most interested/have more ideas for a Naya Huatli, Abzan Yanggu or Vraska, Sultai Kiora, and Jeskai Narset than what I had above; like the Sorin / Nahiri transformer, though I'm unsure of the signature spell I'd want to gear them towards.
Any good candidates I'm forgetting?

I feel that Tamiyo, Field Researcher can be put in just about the same place as Estrid as they both support flash hulk decks pretty effectively, only she puts herself into play about 0.5-1 turn sooner.

There's mana efficient budget staple Commander cards that can replace many of the very cards you think you should keep. Start with staples that are within your budget, include them first, then add "two for ones". Your right two for ones are good, but the card must be worth the mana cost for the two for one to matter. None of the cards you're explaining to me about are worth the mana cost. Over mana costed cards that have proliferate slapped on them as a one time effect are not worth it when you can play many repeatable sources of proliferate and can also get the very same one time effect from much lower cost mana efficient cards.
Dovin has a good ultimate, but that's it. Best not to play Planeswalkers just for their ultimate because it's too likely that you will not get it. Dovin's other abilities are lackluster, not worth playing. In any game you would much rather play four drop Atraxa, Tamiyo, Field Researcher or Ajani Steadfast than Dovin. Dovin is just getting in the way of other much more powerful four drops. Can't count on having Doubling Season every game to ultimate your Planeswalkers especially since you're not playing any mana efficient tutors that can get Season.
Mer-Ek Nightblade and Abzan Battle Priest are more four drops and there's too many four drops here especially since Atraxa is the four drop you want to consistently cast or a Planeswalker. Nightblade and Priest are lackluster four drops compared to the rest of the four drops; they require other cards (creatures to have a counter on them) to be decent and that's not good compared to the other four drops.
True Conviction and Plasm Capture are fine cards, but the manabase here can't support them. Their difficult mana costs are not costs you want to have to worry about in a four color deck. They aren't powerful enough as singletons to want to change your manabase or mana sources to play them.
