Love it! Burning-Tree Emissary finally makes Horned Kavu a playable card! +1'd!

Definitely recommend either a playset of Kird Ape to start aggressing early, or Llanowar Elves variant to curve into your bigger drops faster. You're not running any 1-drops besides your burn and Bonesplitter, so having a creature to either start the face race or eat removal is super important.

For two-drops, Burning-Tree Emissary is great for pumping out other creatures, which is powerful vs control and aggro.

I'd probably fill out to a playset of Blastoderm, since it's one of the best beaters ever. You could also playtest Tajuru Pathwarden; it's a fantastic curve-topper.

If you're prepared to put a little bit of money into it, here are my suggestions that stick to your theme

-4 Druid of the Cowl

-2 Thornweald Archer

-1 Karametra's Acolyte

-1 Heroes' Bane

+4 Elvish Mystic

+4 Llanowar ElvesIf you go red, replace one of those 2 groups with 4 Burning-Tree Emissary Black, 4 Elves of Deep Shadow

Waker of the Wilds looks fun as heck.

Genesis Hydra, Mistcutter Hydra, terastadon, Verdant Force, Void Winnower, and Terra Stomper are all pretty good budget big mana pay-offs.

I would remove the enchantments for 4 Harmonize. If you're dead set on running effects like Overgrowth, Arbor Elf is the kind of creature you want to be running. You don't need the Fog effects since you should be the one on the attack, but if you're running them for the hexproof, consider Blossoming Defense instead. I would go 4 Rampant Growth and 4 Search for Tomorrow in your sorceries.

Nissa, Nature's Artisan is respectable, but I'd suggest Nissa, Worldwaker or Garruk Relentless  Flip instead. I wouldn't run your enchantment or flier hate in the mainboard, instead fill it with the planeswalkers above, or more creatures like Elvish Visionary.

One thing you really have to be aware of in Legacy is that the three most popular board wipes (to my knowledge) are; Terminus, Toxic Deluge, and Supreme Verdict. There's not a whole lot you can do against the first two, but have a couple Heroic Intervention in your sideboard could be important. I would also run a couple Life Goes On or Feed the Clan in the sideboard as well to go against more aggro opponents.

Some fun spells to consider are Verdant Confluence, Primal Command, and Helix Pinnacle.

I'm not really a green player, but I hope this was a little helpful

i would suggest the following:

these cards are really slow, Burning-Tree Emissary, Flameblast Dragon, Myojin of Infinite Rage, Savage Ventmaw, Infernal Plunge, Banefire, Kodama's Reach,

try adding Slumbering Dragon,Dragonmaster Outcast, Dragon Egg, Dragon Tempest, Thunderbreak Regent, Metallic Mimic, Blessings of Nature, Moltensteel Dragon,

you also need 23+ lands, try looking for dual lands it is really good.. get check/pain lands they are relatively cheap as well. =)Birds of Paradise best ramp in your deck. if you can't afford it try

Lightning Bolt is definitely something I'm looking to get 4 of in my card collection, but I have yet to do so. So I will add that.

I agree that Burning-Tree Emissary into Infernal Plunge can get disrupted by many blue spells. I would like to run Birds of Paradise, but I'm not willing to dish out the money for that just yet. Arbor Elf with Utopia Sprawl may be good, but just a little out of my budget. However, I'm definitely going to put that on the "To get" list just for my collection in general.

So what would prevent you from running both of the recruiter cards and some cantrip spells/creatures like Manamorphose and Burning-Tree Emissary alongside Goblin Bushwhacker type of effects? I mean, yeah, your wallet may as well have never existed once you have the land base, but couldn't that still be an effective win?

If nothing else, what about other win con cards like Altar of the Brood or Impact Tremors (or of course similar effects)? Have those ever been effective for you?

Lastly, have you considered Genesis Chamber as a value engine?

Monomanamaniac thanks for the comments. I may add Kiln Fiend and a couple pump spells and cut Burning-Tree Emissary and something else. Lightning Bolt may end up in here but unsure.

Gattison thanks for the comment. Yea love paper pauper our lgs runs one a month at fnm. Impact Tremors I'll have to give it a try we do have a pile of creatures entering the battlefield. I find with Thunderous Wrath if I do have it in my opening hand it a great late game cast but most times I just pitch it to Insolent Neonate to draw a card. I'm unsure if I'll keep Burning-Tree Emissary it a free cast but other than that it sits on the field. I'm wondering about putting Kiln Fiend in its place or something else.
