The burn spell seems pretty bad without the prospect of a dragon at the end. In terms of Dragons, Pauper doesn't really have much. Lightning Shrieker is the strongest dragon in Pauper right now, which isn't something that will end the game. It does combo with Approach since it shuffles itself back in, however.

Interesting concept. I have a few thoughts.

Crop Rotation seems like your best tool in this deck to enable Nacatl and Kird ape consitently and quickly. I think this should be a 4-of in your deck.

In addition to Crop Rotation, Land Grant is another way to fetch up lonely copies of your forest duals without requiring any mana at all. It doesn't fetch Alpine Meadow, but it should still be more than playable. Bonus points for triggering Seeker of the Way for free.

In terms of mana base, I would try to minimize the number of tap lands as much as possible. You're probably not going to want two copies of Alpine Meadow in play at once, so cutting to one and fetching it when necessary seems fine. I would also cut Sejiri Steppe down.

Bounce lands seem like they could be great for you. Gruul Turf and Selesnya Sanctuary are good at providing extra land drops on their own and they make great targets for an early Crop Rotation to keep hitting land drops.

Maybe just a matter of preference, but I would do a 4:2 split of Journey and Cannonade instead of 3:3.

Considering that your blink spells are great with the teacher and Mulldrifter, but really bad with your level up creatures, I really wouldn't run 16 copies. I think cutting Acrobatic Maneuver, and Momentary Blink would be a good start. Maybe cutting 2-4 copies of Cloudshift as well wouldn't be bad.

In their place, I would recommend some Proliferate spells. They will fill a similar role as your teacher, though you'll have to get the first level counter on yourself. Something like Contentious Plan , Thrummingbird and maybe Martyr for the Cause could be interesting options for you. These could also be substitutes for Drift of Phantasms, which I think was only there to get your teacher, right?

You might want some other card draw like Preordain and Ponder to find what you need and smooth out your deck.

16 lands is also too few for your deck. Considering how many 3-drops you are playing, I think 22 would be more appropriate.

Utopia Sprawl is your best friend here. It fixes your mana, ramps you, and makes your Aura Gnarlid bigger.

Wild Growth is also excellent. It doesn't fix your mana, but you can play it on any land, not just a forest.

In order to make room for this ramp, I think taking out Fertile Ground, Karametra's Favor, Baloth Gorger, BTE, Armor of Thorns and a few lands would do the trick.

You should definitely be playing all 4 Ancestral Mask . I would cut Uncontrollable Anger and AEther Webs for it.

Reckless Abandon seems better than Artillerize. It costs way less mana, which seems worth losing a point of damage for.

Rabid Bite seems much worse than Ram Through . It's an instant that also has the upside of "trampling over" its damage if your creature has trample.
