When Verdant Haven enters the battlefield, you gain 2 life.
Whenever enchanted land is tapped for mana, its controller adds one mana of any color to his or her mana pool (in addition to the mana the land produces).

Ok, I realize you're new to this game, and don't have a great collection, but you should still not play Radiant Fountain it can really screw your mana base if you plan to drop Elvish Mystic and Golden Hind early. Also, if your "relatively new" to magic, how do you have four Genesis Hydra ? Also maybe not the Nissa's Expedition ,Staff of the Wild Magus , and 4 Verdant Haven . More like one or two would be great. You've also fallen into the new player trap of life gain. Life gain means nothing if you have no board presence, and it's more like delaying the inevitable rather than jumping ahead. also maybe Llanowar Wastes to fix your mana or Golgari Guildgate . And since your mostly green, maybe Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for super ramp, but it can be expensive. Overgrown Tomb is also a really good land, as well as Temple of Malady , and if you can get the bugger, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Sorry if this comes off like I'm talking down to you and being kinda mean. Keep working on it! +1
Thanks for the suggestion nanoperception! I will definitely replace Verdant Haven with Utopia Sprawl as the 2 life generally isn't relevant.And also, I'm only at $12 right now so the Utopia Sprawl s should bring me to almost exactly $15 lol
Springleaf Drum would work for triggering off the inspired, but I don't know what I would take out. Verdant Haven and Market Festival don't really work in this deck. I don't really need that much extra mana. Market Festival is at least the same casting cost as alot of my other cards and would work with the Disciple of Deceit , but again. I'm not entirely certain what I would remove.
When I make a deck, I always like to imagine what it would be like if I drew all of the same card I have in a row, for instance your Sliver Hivelord . Imagine even having two of them in your hand, this card is a legend, so you cannot have more than one on the field, making it useless to you. It also has indestructible, so the only real things you have to worry about are exile or counter. It is a great card, but having 4 of them in a deck is overkill. The same goes for your other slivers, such as Blur Sliver .
I suggest trimming all of your creatures so you have less of them and then adding some other spells. For instance, you could add some card draw so you don't find yourself top decking.
White is good for exile, when people have indestructible permanents, most often the only way to get rid of them is with exile. Banishing Light , Deicide , Devouring Light , Constricting Sliver are some good ones.
Red's strongest aspect is burn in my opinion, but there are plenty of other good red spells out there for dealing with pesky artifacts and harmful permanents.
And one more thing, definitely add some Mistcutter Hydra
you can put it in the sideboard in exchange for Ajani's Pridemate since you don't have any consistent life-gaining abilities. yes, there is the Bow of Nylea and Ajani Steadfast effects, and a Verdant Haven , but for the first 2 you miss out on the other possibilities - and the last one is a singleton
maybe also a Eidolon of Rhetoric , since he doesn't really do MUCH (but maybe I'm just not a fan of him :p )
