Zoetic Cavern Discussion

Bazzul I love the deck btw - though it won't likely compete with Godo, that's ok.
I've crunched the numbers and currently your mana cost for the entire build is 72 - the minimum mana cost for using naus is like 52(?) I believe. So the likelihood of you having enough mana's worth in hand to reliably cast naus as a simpler method is just not going to work.
Skeletal scrying for 30-odd would find you a decent chunk of what you're looking for, even giving you the chance to pitch Phantasmagorian without unmask.
Increasing your consistency I'd recommend some basic stax: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Wasteland , Strip Mine ; some further lands you could consider: Myriad Landscape , Blighted Fen (for Bone Picker ), Bazaar of Baghdad , the new Blast Zone , Forbidden Orchard is a card that works collectively with opponents to block tymnas (you give them enough spirits that they can double-block to remove it / whatever you feel is necessary), Deserted Temple will make ritual lands faster, Scrying Sheets with snow-covered swamps will help you to dig for removal (albeit a bad mana sink).
For real though, love the brew; I tried to work something out with Belzenlok when he got spoiled, so seeing this puts me to shame. Nice one.

I'd probably take it in the flicker direction- with hardened scales there you could make use of things like Long Road Home / Otherworldly Journey / Essence Flux to put some threats on the board for cheap. Mindless Automaton would be the kind of thing to look at for value with that. One of the interesting things about manifest is that they don't have to be creatures to be put onto the battlefield with flicker- Sandwurm Convergence is completely possible.

I think it'd be difficult to make it fast enough for Modern, but I can see Deathmist Raptor having some potential. If you discard one to morph a Gathan Raiders , you can then put it on the battlefield. You wouldn't even need to add red. Den Protector would be another one for a graveyard heavy strategy.
Zoetic Cavern would be a fun land if you're only in 1 or 2 colors.

Alright update 2
Wight, monitor and sudden demise I decided to keep for now simply because I do not have better options at the moment.

I have some land suggestions if you're interested.

In regards to Extraplanar Lens, it's amazing. I'd replace like 20-30 of these situational lands with Wastes, put it, Endless Atlas, Solemn Simulacrum, Wayfarer's Bauble, and Isolated Watchtower in. It will help your curve and consistency sooo much.
Every time you play a land, I would ask just yourself how often you actually use its perk. If you can't see yourself ever searching for it with Expedition Map, then it's a good sign that it doesn't have enough utility to be in the deck.
How often are 3 urza lands in at the same time? How often do you spend 7 to activate Urza's Factory instead of playing eldrazi spells? How often do you get a spirit from Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai and is a 1/1 really that good? How often do you have an empty hand for Sea Gate Wreckage? How often do you morph Zoetic Cavern? How often does Scorched Ruins get targeted for land destruction?

Zoetic Cavern fits the theme pretty well. You can respond to it would-be dying, turn it into a land. Lands don't die
