Omniscience occurrence in decks from the last year

Gatherer has the exact answer to your question: "10/1/2007 This ability does not allow you to pay the evoke cost of the targeted Elemental card." To expand on that, abilities that allow you to cast things without paying their mana costs don't generally allow you to pay alternate costs with the same ability. For instance, if you played Omniscience you would be able to cast Sawtusk Demolisher for free, but if you wanted to mutate it onto something you'd still have to pay the mutate cost because it's an alternate cost. Hope this helps!

The action word "Play"
this includes playing lands and casting spells. This word can be found on Outpost Siege.
This means that you can cast spells from outpost siege and play lands from outpost siege
The action word "put" can be found on Ugin, the Spirit Dragon's ultimate.
"Put" refers to any permanent based off of what the card says.
The action word "cast" can be found on Omniscience.
Omniscience says "cast" not "play". So you cant use omniscience to "play" lands. And additionally you are never casting lands

Ooh I do like suspending Omniscience :3
I would say if you think you can end the game basically immediately on the back of the MLD, then whatever, go for it. People will get triggered but it isn't really all that bad if the game ends next turn.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone. To answer your question Omniscience_is_life, I'm still assessing the level of 'casual' having only had a couple evenings at the shop, but thus far it feels like a 4-7 range in power. For example, playing against an Alela, Artful Provocateur deck with an infinite mill combo and tutor support on one hand, and a Zurgo Helmsmasher chef themed jank equipment deck on the other. A fair bit of spot removal but little counterspell interaction. If you win with a deck, you rotate it out, that sort of thing.
Also, to clarify for the group, the MLD is never used as a 'screw you I'm going to lose anway so why not hurt everyone on my way out'. It is used to clear the table leaving only an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre on the table, or else stacked to resolve before an Omniscience off suspend, that sort of thing.

Here is the more combo like version. I will say it's a pretty rough draft, but this is just to give you an idea of what I was considering . You'll want to customize it to best suit you and your meta.
4x Pentad Prism
4x Izzet Signet
4x Steam Vents

Here's a list to consider. Some are expensive, some will make you lose friends, and some are just jank.
Some board control can come in the form of Cyclonic Rift
Some other funny creatures to include might be Archetype of Endurance, Protean Hulk, Progenitor Mimic, Beguiler of Wills (as long as you have enough creatures), and Seedborn Muse (there's more that's just a few)
If you're needing more token generation, Avenger of Zendikar can provide that (however brief), and it has a similar effect to Mycoloth (which you have already), and that gets plain dumb when you pair it with ETB-affected cards like Kapsho Kitefins (and it buffs Ezuri when you have token doublers on field). Also Ezuri gets really happy when you Clone Legion someone with a bunch of tiny tokens on their field
and finally, one of my favourite combos to this day...

There are others, but I'm really scratching my head here.
