Adding green could turn this into an amusing control deck.
You can do this every turn, to keep getting back your answers and threats.

No. When you end up casting the spell after all the suspend counters come off, you cast it without paying its mana cost. There is therefore no way to use the mana from Primal Wellspring to cast the suspended card and hence use the copy effect.
It could work, though, if something like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben was in play and your suspended card costs to cast instead of .

Does Primal Wellspring work with the suspend mechanic? Suspending doesn't count as casting last I checked, but when it goes onto the stack after the last suspend counter does something like Ancestral Vision get copied with the ability to choose new targets?

Additionally, throw Chandra, the Firebrand 2nd ability into the mix, yet another copy hits?

On a related note: The Ixalan transform lands like Primal Wellspring will not die as they have a CMC of their front face.

Enchanted Evening will make permanents enchantments in addition to their other types. Starfield of Nyx will make all non-aura enchantments creatures with their power and toughness equal to their casting cost. If the card's original casting cost was zero, its power and toughness will be zero.
The permanents are not destroyed. They just move from the battlefield to the graveyard for having a toughness of zero. This is important since effects that trigger on destroy will not trigger.
On a side note, the transform lands (like Primal Wellspring ) from Ixalan will not be put to the graveyard as their cmc is the cmc of its front face.

There are several ways of taking infinite turns with Nexus of Fate . Yes, one of the newer ones is using Primal Wellspring but I think those decks want to win off Expansion / Explosion rather than Teferi. I think the deck started out with just Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Search for Azcanta Flip, and Chemister's Insight to help draw a nexus when you need it. It also had tons of "fog" effects which is very similar to taking an extra turn against the aggressive creature based decks. Now we also have the addition of Wilderness Reclamation which lets you float mana and activate azcanta an additional time each turn for every copy of reclamation you have. A board state with a flipped Search for Azcanta Flip, a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and at least one Wilderness Reclamation would be incredibly difficult to beat without Unmoored Ego or something.
