Beast Within and Dismember are your best options in mono green. The 4 life on Dismember isn’t that bad because a mono green deck SHOULD have board control anyway, so you won’t exactly be desperate for life.
Failing that, a black splash for Fatal Push and Assassin's Trophy are your next best options. The black mana can help take the edge off Dismember too.

Ahemm... Beast Within, if you play bigger creatures of course

Tata - Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a pet card. She was the first planeswalker I ever pulled out of a pack. She's not perfect for the deck, but she has been pretty good. Token generation isn't the worst, the pump is ok. She's pretty low threat so getting to her ult isn't as difficult as you would think (at least in my meta).

I've leaned out removal in this deck over the last few months. I have plenty of other decks that run more, and I wanted this deck to play a bit more aggressively and try to outpace everyone else. Beast Within is good enough for me atm. Generous Gift is great, but for now one instance of that type of removal is what I'm looking for. You're definitely right about Woodland Bellower though. I'll pick up a copy soon and look at getting it slotted.

Same goes for Fleetfoot Panther. That's one that I have sleeved and ready to put in. Just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Usually by the time I get either the lion or skyfisher out I've bounced them out enough to give me a huge lead. Redundancy is always nice. I might put him in soon and playtest having all three for a while. Thanks for the feedback!

Overall the list looks good. A few improvements I would recommend however:

DemonDragonJ on Hybrid Cards that Render Mono-Colored ...

6 days ago

MagicalHacker, WotC admitted that Beast Within breaks the color pie, since green is not supposed to be able to destroy creatures unconditionally, so I would not be in favor of a green/white hybrid version of it.

Tzefick, Obzedat's Aid does not have a generic name, since it references a specific group of people from a specific plane.

ShreddedByCrows on Surrakar tribal challenge

1 week ago

Cool concept, even if it's pretty hard to match. A bit of an easy take on your theme, but why don't you play some Shapeshifters as a way to have more Surrakar? Tribal cards also could help.

As Surrakars' living places are mostly wild forests and underground rivers, there's a lot to do with that without having to back up only on the Zendikar's expansions.

1.) River cards:

  • River of Tears not the best land you could find, but fits in there

  • Underground River certainly an essential

  • Bad River cheap fetchland fitting the theme

  • Rushing River great removal, really underplayed, fits the theme / you can try something revolving around self land destruction if you decide to give it a try (Crop Rotation, Crucible of Worlds, Wasteland, etc.)

  • River Kelpie interesting creature, which design feels otherworldly and weird, according to the Surrakars /n needs a graveyard gameplan to be effective, and that will seem fine (obvious synergy is [card:Cauldron of Souls] and it's a playable card in there) / pretty good interactions with Yarok / card draw

  • Carpet of Flowers staple in lots of decks for mana production, depends on your playgroup though

  • Dire Undercurrents excellent synergies with Yarok, enabling your creatures without etb-abilities to be more effective / card draw, card advantage

  • Undermine weird counterspell, not really that good, not bad either / illustration matches with the theme

2.) Cave cards:

3.) Cloning your Surrakars cards:

  • Mirror of the Forebears not the most flavourful one, but gives you a cheap way to get more Surrakars so it deserves being at least mentioned

  • Fated Infatuation same comment as for the Mirror, with the advantage of the more abstract card name / waterpoint in the illustration

  • Mimic Vat classic card, not the most flavourful

  • Wall of Stolen Identity more of a Ravnica-themed card, but worth mentioning

  • Phantasmal Image if you can alter a bit the card's image, it could be some Surrakar there / otherwise, it's a good card, and the illustration is strange enough to not injure your theme-deck-style imo

  • Metamorphic Alteration also a nice one

  • Mirror Image not as good as the others, still a wildish illustration style according well with Surrakars

  • Unstable Shapeshifter funny card, a quality+ illustration

  • Bramble Sovereign Surrakars also living in the Guum Wilds/Tangled Vale, this one feels really good / has some interactions with Yarok

  • Rite of Replication Zendikar-themed, water-themed, excellent card, good interactions with Yarok

  • Supplant Form let's just assume for a while that this is Surrakar's magic lel

  • Dual Nature yeh it is slow, but it is strong / interactions with Yarok

4.) Tribal outlet:

5.) Yarok outlet

6.) Other cards

I hope you'll find something helpful amongst those suggestions, keep on brewing and thanks for sharing it!

Wiggyman on Hot Chicks with Fat Dudes

Oh man, I didn't expect that to be a real edit you made. I think it'll work great! Now that you did it:

Easy replacements for Nature's Claim are Knight of Autumn and Reclamation Sage, so those might be a good include. Any replacement for Beast Within will obviously be much worse, but Meteor Golem and Mold Shambler are what I can think of off the top of my head. And I honestly can't think of anything to replace Natural Order or Tooth and Nail.

Other things: You're running 16 noncreature spells. Nikya of the Old Ways might limit you a bit, but I think it has enormous potential and might be worth a look.

I've also found that Captain Sisay is busted in this kind of deck if you have $15 that you're willing to spend.

I still love the deck!
