For global haste you can use Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, and Urabrask the Hidden who will also conveniently turn off other people's haste. Anger and Barbarian Class also give haste after more effort.
Ant Queen, Artifact Mutation, Battle Hymn, Circle of Dreams Druid, Dragon Broodmother, Pest Infestation, Scute Swarm, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Termagant Swarm are all useful if you can give haste to all of them.
Birds of Paradise is just the best mana dork.
You have green, so you might as well use the standard ramp package with Cultivate , Kodama's Reach, Explore , Farseek, , Rampant Growth, Three Visits and Nature's Lore. Probably ignore most mana rocks, because people are going to want to vandalblast you just because of the treasures.
Relentless Assault, Scourge of the Throne, Combat Celebrant, Hexplate Wallbreaker, World at War grant extra combats, with Hellkite Charger and Aggravated Assault potentially going infinite.
Vandalblast goes in every red deck. Even though youll have a ton of treasures i'd still run Brotherhood's End too
For draw spells consider Scroll Rack, Garruk's Uprising, Elemental Bond, Soul's Majesty, Furious Rise, Rishkar's Expertise, Beast Whisperer, Shamanic Revelation, Disciple of Bolas, Pact of the Serpent, Painful Truths, Harmonize, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Damnable Pact, Commune with Lava, Lifeblood Hydra, or maybe Necropotence although the color restricion on necro is tough, treasures should take care of it.
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Flip, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer , The Reaver Cleaver , Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge , Ancient Copper Dragon , Old Gnawbone Ziatora, the Incinerator for more treasure makers. Pyrohemia and Pestilence could be fun with the extra mana. Awaken the Woods is an amazing x spell too, but wont appreciate the two aforementioned cards.
If you're using magda the deck will benefit from dragons and expensive artifacts. throw in Imperial Recruiter and Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Demonic Tutor all go in your colors. so you can get her more consistently. Darksteel Forge and Gate to Phyrexia can be tutored into play with her for five treasure.
If you use dragons, you could add Dragonstorm, but you should carefully consider how many cheap spells you expect to be able to cast if you arent building specifically towards this card. Chatterstorm, Empty the Warrens, Yawgmoth's Will, Jeska's Will, Mana Geyser, and Manamorphose, Past in Flames are all good on their own and would add synergy.
If it ends up dragon tribal, cards like Crippling Fear , Kindred Dominance, Crux of Fate
Swashbuckler Extraordinaire is a very good payoff for using treasures if you dont use certain other nightmarish dragons like Atarka, World Render, Blast-Furnace Hellkite, Terror of Mount Velus, Thrakkus the Butcher

Tyvar's flavor being about beatdown while his passive and +1 leading themselves to tap abilities is kinda off
Kinda annoyed if Nissa dies, if only because Vivian and mono-green Garuk are mechanically indistinguishable.
Rhuk: For Mirrodin!-tribal I guess.
Not a fan of the mechanical eyestalks that Serum Sovereign and Jace (and Ajani in one version) have, looks too sci-fi
Hoping against hope that Ertai, the Corrupted gets a non-Secret Lair reprint, he's neat.
IDK if they could have skipped creating Mites and just kept going with Germs
Staff of the Storyteller: I've been down on recent white draw enginge attempts, but this is pretty good if you got a deck where the token is relevant so you're not just paying 2+1 mana to draw your first car
Mesmerizing Dose: Kinda misleading art?
Vanish into Eternity: I hope they're not killing of too many cool planes.
Capricious Hellraiser: Not bad EDH mono-red Dragon tribal if you include some rummaging.
Me as usual complaining that things aren't more pushed: Kinzu seems overall worse than Hofri Ghostforge, even if her tokens are basically 4/1s in EDH. I hope there's some cool "corrupted" cards for her to take advantage of.
Annoyed by Mite Overseer because AFAIK white still doesn't have straightforward weenie makers that are as efficient as green's Jade Mage & Ant Queen
Kinda find Atraxa disapointing, her ETB would have been neat as just a stand-alone sorcery
I wish Staff of Compleation cost 1 less life on all of its tap abilities, not as easily abuseable as Staff of Domination anyway.
Roar of Resistance's triggered ability could just cost to make politicking smoother
Clever Concealment: Booo, when are we getting a straightforward Heroic Intervention color shift? (Don't talk to me about Grand Crescendo or And They Shall Know No Fear, they are not the same.)
Otharri: Yeah this is much more appropritate for the color combination than Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, but unlike the rest of the original experience commanders there's still not a lot of ways to get multiple counters quickly
Necrogen Rotpriest: with e.g. Goliath Hatchery in mind, I don't see why this couldn't just give out Toxic 1 as an anthem.
Resistance Reuinted: Kinda sad that you can basically counter the anti-board wipe part by removing the targeted creature.

Forgot to mention; for token generation consider Dragonlair Spider, Ant Queen, or Terastodon for another creature generator for both sides.

WhiteEagle_12, thank you for your advice, as you can see I have taken some of it. I removed Ant Queen as I originally leaned on it as a way to sink mana once I was generating large amounts. However I replaced bot Ant Queen and Elvish Mystic with Sakura-Tribe Scout and Spring-Leaf Avenger. This has shifted the focus of the deck slightly, however I kept both scute cards as they have such god benefit from large amounts of land. I also picked up Reclaim the Wastes and Caravan Vigil. The fact that these weren't already in my deck shows how little of the cardpool I am familiar with. I am considering adding Overrun to capitalize on my scute cards, but I feel with a large source of creatures removed this is a rather weak win condition. Overall I am very conflicted on whether or not I lean into this and trust that Overrun will allow me to win, or to find another way to use my setup to win.
Regardless of my wishy-washy feelings your advice has been deeply appreciated. :•)

Consider adding Mitotic Slime, Mycoloth, Hornet Queen, and Ant Queen. In my opinion these could all be good token generators for flinging!

Also good adds. Nyx Weaver is a crazy good add since it lets me get my combo piece if I accidentally mill it, so i'll have to find a cut. I think I'll cut Stag Beetle for Ant Queen since most of the time stag beetle is around a 5/5 anyways and can't make more tokens.

Ah dang, was hoping you cobbled together a weird clue token/Grist deck with some of the new Investigate stuff from Modern Horizons 2.
My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day is ruined.
As for more mid-game suggestions, would Nyx Weaver be of any help? It kinda just helps you mill stuff on its own, and it naturally gets boosted by Blex, Vexing Pest Flip.
Ant Queen looks like a decent mid-game insect that does stuff with your mana if you're flooding out, if you're into that.
Diabolic Tutor is also a cheap way to search for your main combo pieces like Gravepurge and Forever Young
Kinda sucks that insect tribal is a bit undersupported as of right now.

You can link to cards like Guerric did so illustratively above by doing something like this:
That becomes Ant Queen , and thus we can all be on the same page about what the cards in question do. Thanks!
