Growth Spiral

Instant

Draw a card. You may put a land from your hand onto the battlefield.

If you want to try and turn this infinite you could try using Krosan Restorer. To help you get the threshold active you can use some Brokers Hideout and some type of loot draw like Thirst for Discovery to help you find combo parts. If you take the threshold path you may want to consider using Consider over Opt at the very least.

Another draw/ramp card to consider Growth Spiral

Spellbook doesn't do anything based on the card draw options you are using.

Tamiyo's Journal is very slow and I don't see any cards to interact with your opponent outside of Counterspell. Doubt Journal this will do much for you.

Also you somehow have 6 copies of Counterspell in your deck.

If you want a board wipe to help you survive and don't want to kill all your creatures, then you may want to consider Time Wipe.

Prosperous Innkeeper may be something you want to run if you do not want to run sweepers as it gives you etb to gain life to sustain and generates treasure that ramps/color fixes in a pinch.

Hope the suggestions help and best of luck with the casual fun deck idea.

Update!

Out: Growth Spiral and Sundial of the Infinite

In: Joint Exploration and The Cruelty of Gix

Dominaria United has some nice new cards out. Joint Exploration is an improved Growth Spiral that lets us scry 2 before drawing. The Cruelty of Gix just adds to the flavor of the deck, and acts as a Duress + Imperial Seal + Reanimate (but can also steal from other's graveyards, like the one we filled with the Duress effect). Going to try it out!

ElPared, I didn't really think of Crucible of Worlds, but I like my other 3 drops a little better. Usually the three lands from Life from the Loam are more than enough to close things out. I'll play around with crucible a bit, but my initial thought is to stick with Life from the Loam.

Soul Foundry seems a little expensive, but Sakura-Tribe Elder has some potential. I think the tradeoff for something like Explore or Growth Spiral is having a blocker at the expense of the cantrip. Which one is better might just depend on meta, but I'm definitely going to try out Sakura-Tribe Elder and see how it goes!

IHATENAMES, my usual Leyline of Sanctity plan is to remove it with Broken Bond or Force of Vigor from the board, or go wide/big with Scute Swarm or Tireless Tracker. That said, I really like the possibility of having other options as well. I can even see running a one-of Hall of Storm Giants in the main. Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is probably more of a sideboard card, but I think it would be pretty useful for changing the angle of the deck so it's not as all-or-nothing.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I definitely think you can spare to cut some lands, my own Omnath, Locus of Creation landfall deck only uses 39 (mind you, it has Wooded Foothills, Misty Rainforest and the like which give me extra landfall triggers). In their place I highly suggest some stuff like Roiling Regrowth, Harrow, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, and Growth Spiral.

Other suggestions would be as follows and I made an effort to keep price in mind for all of these as best as I could: Sylvan Awakening, Primal Surge (since you have so many permanents could be used to great effect, and if used alongside cards like Laboratory Maniac, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and maybe even something like Enter the Infinite you could create a sudden win-con out of these. Remember also if you include some of my above suggestions which tutor for land those are helping ever so slightly thin out your deck for such a win con). More would include Nissa, Vital Force, Avenger of Zendikar, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Ulvenwald Hydra,Zendikar's Roil, Ramunap Excavator, Hour of Promise (noticed you have quite a few deserts to have a chance at the bonus effect), Lotus Cobra, Tireless Provisioner, Blackblade Reforged, Druid Class, The Mending of Dominaria, Wilderness Reclamation, Reshape the Earth, Jaheira's Respite, Meloku the Clouded Mirror (let's you repeat all your landfall effects), Retreat to Coralhelm and Praetor's Counsel.

As for actual lands:

Simic Growth Chamber, Reliquary Tower, Myriad Landscape, Scavenger Grounds, and Endless Sands.

Oh and here's my Omnath list I mentioned if you want to give it a glance. I know some of the stuff featured in this is pricey, but it nonetheless may still give you some ideas for now, or otherwise for the future:

Hope this helps! If I had more time to spare currently I would suggest what you might cut for these things but that may have to wait for a while unfortunately. But I'll surely return to say more sometime!

Spell_Slam thanks for the suggestions! I had all the same doubts and you really killed it with the cards! I actually forgot about Coiling Oracle, Sunlance and Growth Spiral, these are all great suggestions! I might add more Ephemerate, Forest and Island as you said for the mana base

Spell_Slam on Four Color Infect Gates

I like the idea! It looks slow; way too slow, even for midrange.

I think the biggest issue is that your mana base is mostly made up of tap lands. I think you could easily get rid of Heap Gate and Citadel Gate for a couple more basics.

Riffing off the idea of Augur and Ephemerate, I think your deck could really take advantage of Coiling Oracle. It will baseline draw you a card, but will also let you play multiple gates a turn to negate the tapland disadvantage. I think you could easily swap out Augurs for those. I guess you could also think about cards like Growth Spiral or Explore.

Since you are playing mostly evasive infect creatures and Apostle's Blessing and removal, I don't think you need Rancor in your deck.

Keep in mind that Utopia Sprawl only enchants forests, which could occasionally be a problem. Maybe a full playset of Oracles would be better, since you have great fixing already with your tap lands.

I find you are going pretty deep into black, which can make things awkward with your gate colour choices. Have you thought about playing White removal instead? Maybe Journey to Nowhere could be good over Cast Down? Maybe Sunlance over disfigure to kill even Festival Crasher?

ghgiunco to explain my thought process:

  • yes Wayward Swordtooth is like an Azusa effect, but you already have Azuza. Having multiple of these kinds of effects in play at once is usually not super helpful because even with one down you usually end up playing all the land from your hand super quickly. Importantly also I think you have a LOT of 3-drops and limited early-turn plays. Arboreal Grazer lets you play lands early, which will matter for a fast game, and Growth Spiral/Explore refill your hand while ramping, which is super relevant.

  • Ob Nixilis, the Fallen won’t really win as fast as you think he will. You may have to still play something like 5 lands after playing this guy, and at any point your opponent can just kill him in response to the trigger. Compare this to something like Titania, Protector of Argoth, which creates value and leaves threats on-board even if she’s killed.

  • i’m not suggesting to ditch Ramunap Excavator, but 3 copies imo should serve you better. Drawing multiple of this card is usually going to feel really bad. Imo the only reason to run 4 would be if your deck needs him do achieve anything at all - but that’s a really dangerous place to be so i’d suggest not leaning too heavily on this one card (or at least mix-up the effect with Life from the Loam and Crucible of Worlds). Keep in mind that if you’re playing best-of-3’s, your opponent is very likely to be packing graveyard hate game 2 onwards also.

  • I think Oracle of Mul Daya is similar to the points I made around the Swordtooth above. Notably it’s just another Azuza effect when Azuza herself should be sufficient. But what you really need is those 1-2 mana cards to help snowball your land count early, while still keeping your hand count high where possible. Even if your deck makes a lot of mana, 4 is a lot to spend on this effect.

  • I would second nbarry223’s idea that Harrow does seem like a good fit. However i’d also say i’m not sure if there’s much room to fit it after my other suggestions (which, imo need to come first).

I think my proposed version of the list looks something like:
