Tap: You may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield.
Walking Atlas Discussion

I can see one possible use: during a Warp World combo, if you use an Eternal Witness to return a Wooded Foothills from your graveyard to your hand, your Arboreal Grazer can put it on the battlefield. This is a thing the old Elvish Pioneer couldn't do, because it only allowed basic land.
Since it enters tapped, this doesn't net you any more mana, just more permanents. So, I don't think this is a very good plan.

JustinWunderlich, yes, it also has a +1/+1 counter theme to get Omnath beefed up. I’m also running some trample effects so that the commander damage gets through. So, how the infinite mana works with Retreat to Coralhelm + Storm Cauldron is you need either Llanowar Scout , Sakura-Tribe Scout or Walking Atlas . Tap a land for mana, it’ll bounce to your hand because of Storm Cauldron . Tap a Land dork, ie Llanowar Scout to put that same land into play, which triggers landfall from Retreat to Coralhelm which you choose to untap Llanowar Scout and just keep repeating those steps for infinite mana. This can also be done similarly with Cloudstone Curio instead of Storm Cauldron .

I understand that. Are we talking blue players using counterspells, or other types of control. If you're in a heavy blue meta, you could consider running Carpet of Flowers as a ramp option. (Sorry, guess that's out of budget...)
Aside from the suggestions I mentioned, there are other budget options that are a bit slower, but can still help out. Cards like Walking Atlas , Skyshroud Ranger , Llanowar Scout , and Sakura-Tribe Scout can get you extra land drops. They might be worth running over some of the 4 CMC land-tutor spells, to help out your curve a little. Entirely up to you, though. Hour of Promise is strong, as it let's you get any two lands; not restricted to basics.

you are very correct there are several other options you can use. Llanowar Scout / Walking Atlas / Sakura-Tribe Scout . The way i make sure that i can always get the combo of (if i want to) is by adding enough effects to bounce/sacrafice lands like Zuran Orb Meloku the Clouded Mirror or Trade Routes . Everytime i look at this deck i remember a card that would fit in snuggly and this time it is Roil Elemental besides that i think Nissa, Vital Force is great as it only needs to tick up once to get the ultimate.

Now that I look... I don't have any land fetch. Thanks for pointing that out.
If I get Ruin Ghost and Retreat to Coralhelm or Walking Atlas with any bounce land then I can trigger whichever landfall effect I have in play. My previous build of this deck had Black with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Retreat to Hagra as a path to victory.

If you like Fling or Thud , consider Bloodshot Cyclops for a more repeatable version of the effect. Cards like Gaea's Touch , Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing are budget cards that let you play additional lands, and the Rites lets you draw an extra card, too. Sakura-Tribe Scout , Skyshroud Ranger , and Walking Atlas offer you more Llanowar Scout effects, and you might find Budoka Gardener to be on theme for you deck, too. I'd recommend Goblin Bombardment as a good free sac outlet for Omnath's death trigger, and Warstorm Surge to bring some more pain when your big creatures come into play - straight upgrade over Where Ancients Tread .
Looks good so far! Hope this helps.
