Rishkar's Expertise

Sorcery

Draw cards equal to the greatest power among creatures you control.

You may cast a card with converted mana cost/mana value 5 or less from your hand without paying its mana cost.

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

I'd add 6 or so lands. There's just not near enough there. It also seems you're expecting a really long game with cards to reshuffle stuff into your library and gain life. You start at 40 health. If you're taking that much damage, the extra 5 here or there aren't saving you. And reshuffling cards from the graveyard into the library is only going to be useful if you're playing against a mill deck or you somehow draw your entire deck. Both somewhat uncommon situations.

Cards under $3 that you might consider:
Nature's Lore
Rishkar's Expertise
Cultivate
Rampant Growth
Farseek
Kodama's Reach
Colossal Majesty
Return of the Wildspeaker
Beast Within
Nature's Claim
Thunderfoot Baloth
Rootweaver Druid
Reclamation Sage
Cathar Commando
Knight of Autumn
Qasali Pridemage
Thrashing Brontodon
Ranging Raptors
Regisaur Alpha
Shifting Ceratops
Territorial Hammerskull
Territorial Allosaurus
Topiary Stomper
Atzocan Seer
Tribal Forcemage
Naya Charm
Road of Return
Boros Charm

Cards that I would call easily expendable:
Suncleanser
Cacophodon
Looming Altisaur
Imperial Ceratops
Wilderness Reclamation
Verdant Haven
Gift of Paradise
Fertile Ground
Oketra's Last Mercy
Rolling Thunder
Serene Remembrance
Elixir of Immortality
Oketra's Monument
Alhammarret's Archive
Sanguine Sacrament
Slice in Twain
Enter the Unknown
Boros Signet
Gruul Signet
Selesnya Signet

Just read the description, wish I could upvote again, pinata party!! Invite your friends!

Abundance - Given you need draw, rather than filter, why not replace it with a draw spell? Should you still wish to keep it, why not include Sylvan Library to 1) Synergize with abundance like crazy = 3x cards of your choice without life loss. 2) Top deck manipulation when you need it. 3) Draw in a pinch

Colossal Majesty - Why not swap this with Elemental Bond or Garruk's Uprising?

Awakening Zone - What purpose does this serve, ramp? Double tokens with doubling season?

Terramorph - There is much better ramp in green such as Migration Path.

Asceticism - Vines of Vastwood would most likely better serve your purpose. While not permanent, it's much each to cast and also provides a stat boost should needed. Being able to bluff against removal is powerful in a political meta. Not to mention that wipes that will inevitably come cannot be stopped by the regen clause (for most wipes). Swapping these will lower your CMC and help ensure interaction.

Bonders' Enclave - Draw in a land slot

The Great Henge - Cast right after your commander. Draw, 1/1 counters and lifegain all for 2 green mana.

Ancient Tomb - Ramp in a land slot

Garruk, Primal Hunter - Draw, token production and a maybe ult. Nice for nykthos. Could maybe swap Return of the Wildspeaker should you value versatility over instant speed interaction.

Greater Good - One of green's best card draw, your commander will give u +5 cards. Some good value. Sac outlet also helps prevent against theft and exile effects.

Harmonize - Card draw at it's simplest

Rishkar's Expertise - I see what you're saying in your description. The decision of going tall and or wide. This might be worth considering as it's draw and doesn't effect tempo.

There are other potential cuts but I wanna see what you think of these first before going further

This, I like this. First of all, I had no idea you could use Sekki like that. +1 from me

Some suggestions for the two problems you want help with:

Early game: One thing you could do is run a bunch of mana dorks. All the Llanowar Elves variants will help you ramp into Sekki faster, give you early creatures to equip Sword of the Animist and Mask of Memory onto, and will make green draw spells like Shamanic Revelation more useful if you haven't been able to make spirits off Sekki.

Card Draw: Green has some fairly strong card draw options for a go tall strategy that you could still consider in Harmonize, Rishkar's Expertise, Momentous Fall, Runic Armasaur, Ohran Frostfang, Hunter's Insight, Soul's Majesty, and Hunter's Prowess.

Why cantrips specifically? If you're looking for momentum, Rishkar's Expertise both draws you cards and doesn't let you loose out on tempo either.

Deserted Temple - Untap cradle + nykthos

Reliquary Tower - Override Recycle hand size limti

Rishkar's Expertise - Draw and do not lose tempo

I can suggest more cards. Would love to know ur budget per card, meta, any notable exclusions etc.... Do you want to keep the deck primarily creatures? Any minimum count? Combos okay?

Ghalta, Primal Hunger is perfect for this deck. Cards like Bonders' Enclave, Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker as well!

Hunter's Prowess card draw ideas.

Hunter's Insight

Garruk's Uprising

Rishkar's Expertise .

I would cut the cultivate effects for creatures that ramp like your Llanowar Elves there are plenty of 1 drops that tap for mana. Or 2 drops that have more utility then a mana dork. .

Slippery Bogbonder protection idea .

Cool cards

Nature's Way Removal

Gemrazer removal

Spring-Leaf Avenger regrowth on a creature

Inscription of Abundance Removal or pump with options

Higher budget stuff to maybe look at.

Guardian Project

Beast Whisperer

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild

Pathbreaker Ibex

Ancestral Mask
