Card #01: Azure Mage that doesn't force me to waste card slots for super-fragile creatures, that's incredibly effective and belongs into almost every blue deck.. Card #03: Emrakul, The Aeons Torn for me, and some random four-mana creature or five-mana creature for my opponent, I win this game on my next turn..
I think Polling Research Center is a bit too powerful, especially for an uncommon. Like cats said, a free Azure Mage. The card draw pushes it over the edge. IMO, it would be better with:

 : Look at target player's hand.

Recount is pretty awesome. From what I can find, there are only two enchantments that work with this (Celestial Convergence and Divine Intervention), and both require some setup to go off. Kudos!

As for Jungle Primary, at first glance I thought "bah-roken" but it could work. I search up Emrakul, my opponent searches up Big Game Hunter......I think the priority rules are what balance this. This does what green does best, play it's big creatures to win the game.
The nice thing about Jungle Primary is that if your opponent figures out you're playing it then he can go to his sideboard and put an Emrakul of his own especially for it.

I personally like the land. Less broken than an Isochron scepter source of draw (I know artifact distruction is way cheaper, but who uses that in standard?). Keep in mind that Azure Mage doesn't tap, and you're basically paying 5 mana, not 4 (cause you're invalidating one of your mana sources). 
Does every deck contain creature cards that can handle the strongest creatures in the game? Isochron Scepter plus imprinted cantrip forced you to play two cards that could be dealt with at the same time by destroying that artifact, while you don't have to waste non-land slots for this land and most decks can't destroy lands..

Maybe not, but that's how combo works, isn't it? The meta would adjust. It's a blatantly powerful card, I agree. Maybe up the cost to .

No, but every sideboard should.

Well yes, but it's cheaper as far as mana is concerned. There are disavantages and advantages to both. Pound for pound, I'd still say Gavony Township is better than his land.
In hindsight the land is too good, and maybe should cost 3UU to activate.

Jungle Primary cost significantly more than Exhume and Show and Tell and they all do similar things. Maybe there should be a mana cap on the creature it brings out though, I don't think so though.

Unfortunately, many lands that are designed in this forum are uncounterable + indestructible (most decks can't destroy them!) engine cards rather than lands that produce mana with a little bonus effect.. Grim Backwoods + Desolate Lighthouse are very strong lands that allow you to draw cards as long as you're playing two-colored decks and willing to "sacrifice" one card before you draw one.. Exhume + Show And Tell are broken cards that are much weaker because they require you to find the card and move that card into another zone than your library before they can put that card into play..
Show and Tell is not "much weaker" it costs much less and lets you put down more than just creature types.

And in casual play, (or standard) most people aren't going to be running 20 dollar eldrazi cards anyways.

That actually increases your opponent's chances of putting something powerful into play, because most opposing decks (unlike yours!) don't focus on extremely strong creatures.. There are many budget cards that are creatures and that allow you to win quickly once they have entered play!
I think what cats was referring to is that cards like Exhume and Show and Tell require more work to break. With Exhume, you need to get a big fattie into the graveyard first. With Show and Tell, well, Show and Tell just needs you to draw cards......but your card is, literally, a one card combo. You can throw 4 of those in a deck and an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Progenitus and you are done. I think you should up the cost as I previously suggested.
As top-down as you can get:

Cloture

Instant

Join forces--You and any number of players may pay any amount of mana. Players who did not do so may then pay any amount of mana

If the amount paid by the first group is greater than one and a half times the amount paid by the second group, destroy all permanents named Azor's Elocutors.

We should also compare with the four-mana Boldwyr Heavyweights, but you'll always end up with a boring french-vanilla creature.. Your version has almost the same costs and gives you much better creatures, but it's greatest advantage is that you're allowed to search for creatures of your choice instead of being forced to use that random french-vanilla creature..
