Hey, for improvements consider more draw, recursion, tutors and more powerful mana sinks?
Nikya's ability doesn't let you cast noncreature spells so you need to be creative in how you can tutor for creatures. Fauna Shaman is great, but you need to draw her or have ways to tutor for her. Nikya can make a lot of mana with her ability, but you need creatures to use all the mana with. You will not always have a big creature to use all the mana to cast therefore mana sinks give you something to use the mana with.
Cards to consider adding:
- Duskwatch Recruiter Flip: front side is a mana sink repeatable way to get creatures into your hand.
- Walking Ballista : mana sink that can kill all your opponents. Combos well with Candelabra.
- Magus of the Candelabra : mana sink to untap all your lands and make even more mana.
- Genesis : repeatable way to recur creatures. Good with Fauna and Greater Good.
- Eternal Witness
- Elvish Harbinger : tutor for one of Fauna, Whisperer, Oracle, Empath, Piper, Vastwood, etc.
- Mwonvuli Beast Tracker : tutor for one of Runic, Soul, Vigor, Forerunners, etc.
- Woodland Bellower
- Temur Sabertooth : mana sink/repeatable bounce of creatures, combos well with Genesis Hydra or any other creature who has a powerful ETB ability. Good with the creatures who ETB to tutor for another creature.
- Steel Hellkite : mana sink to completely wreck opponent you're attacking or do a lot of flying combat damage.
- Reclamation Sage
- Wood Elves : put a dual land onto the battlefield: Glade, Thicket or Stomping.
- Garruk's Packleader : draw when big creatures ETB.
- Greater Good : combos well with Genesis, puts Genesis in graveyard, repeatable way to draw a lot of cards and then recur the creatures you discard or sac.
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary
- Cinder Glade
- Sheltered Thicket
- Stomping Ground
Cards to consider cutting:
- Gruul Guildgate
- Rupture Spire
- Kazandu Refuge
- Thran Dynamo
- Firewild Borderpost
- Illusionist's Bracers
- Leaf Gilder
- Terra Stomper
- Karametra's Acolyte
- Savageborn Hydra
- Silvos, Rogue Elemental
- Ulasht, the Hate Seed
- Explosive Vegetation
- Kodama's Reach
- Zendikar Resurgent
Good luck with your deck.

Its not typical , thats why its unique. Modern dredge wasnt a typical dredge deck either and look at it now. Stax pieces arr generally known to only be effective in multiples. And i play a fair amount considering im also running Walking Ballista to shoot down accelerants and enablers. Give the deck a few plays maybe ud like it :)

This is a great idea for a forum. I have a great memory of this deck: Magic Roons, Laddie. I was playing a game and I wound up with Ashnod's Altar , Trostani Discordant , and Eldrazi Displacer on field and Walking Ballista in hand. At the time, I had no idea that this was an infinite combo. My friend groaned and said “Oh crap, you just win here, right?” “Huh? I do what?” I took another look at the board and everything clicked. I am not ashamed to say that I let off a bit of an evil laugh.

i like it. think about 2 Karn Liberated and liek 1 ulamog. i would add a Wurmcoil Engine or two. Ancient Stirrings can grab a land so it will pretty much always grab something. i may take out an Amulet of Vigor or two, also. maybe add some Walking Ballista

If its any relevant insight im playing both Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista , the deck functions absolutely fine without tron mana, i was just wondering if the possible boost os worth it over playing more random colorless lands. T6 10 mana is quite nice if it happens on a decent basis :)

I see you can make infinite green mana, so why not capitalize on that?. You could do this alternatively by adding Simic Growth Chamber (Voyaging Satyr target). Genesis Wave your deck to the field, add Laboratory Maniac as an alternate win con maybe as you can potentially do the the same with the Hydroid?. Tap everything on board with Icy Blast and/or Gridlock . Nimbus Swimmer for a giant flying sea monster. Walking Ballista to take out everyone/thing.
And if you're not into infinite things then perhaps you'd like Shaman of Forgotten Ways . A bit of creature ramp and a secondary ability that gets overlooked/forgotten alot that can net you a win, esp. against heavy lifegain decks. Well, hope this helps for your first cycle advice ;).
