Hey, thanks for the comment! I can tell you that I originally played Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate but found Merfolk Branchwalker and Drover of the Mighty to be far, far superior. Regarding Prowling Serpopard, I am heavily considering giving it a try in the board, but I've been liking Lifecrafter's Bestiary so much as my anti-control card. Regarding Rishkar, Peema Renegade I originally ran 2 of him and 3-4 Verdurous Gearhulk, but it wasn't as good as going more dino-centric. Lastly, I don't think Shapers' Sanctuary is worth the 1-drop spot, especially going more dino, because Commune with Dinosaurs is just an excellent t1 play.

I just went 2-1 at standard showdown with mono green stompy. Only match I lost was on 3rd game mana screw to sultai energy/taker/scarab god thing.

I really had no business winning against the Approach of the Second Sun deck i played in my third match. He dominated me the first game countering everything i played. Second game he somehow ran out of gas before he could find his wincon and couldn't attack or block with his kefnet. Game 3 he was stuck on three mana that didn't allow him to cast Settle the Wreckage. I chalk it up to luck entirely.

The deck I run is a very different from yours but we are trying to achieve the same things. I run 4 Shapers' Sanctuary main since the deck doesn't have a solid one drop. Its been the difference maker in a lot of games. Particularly Energy decks and red decks that target heavily. In matchups like approach its easily sided out. Prowling Serpopard is the only thing that can put me ahead in that matchup honestly... So...many...counterspells.

I ran Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate as my two drops but there were a lot of games when I would end up with the khenra and Rishkar, Peema Renegade as the only creatures in my hand with nothing on the board and it was frustrating when I knew I couldn't get the bonus off one of em. Im thinking of swapping the khenra for Merfolk Branchwalker and was wondering how its played for you?

I like the deck, but I think it could the shell it's in could use some work. First, I would take out the energy package. Rogue Refiner, Whirler Virtuoso, and Woodweaver's Puzzleknot are good cards in the right deck, but this doesn't have the payoff to be the right deck. Attune with Aether is still a good card since it mana fixes and fuels hub. Consulate Skygate is just a weak card, as is Struggle / Survive.

After the cuts I would put in more ramp and removal. Spring / Mind, Hour of Promise, Ranging Raptors, and Channeler Initiate are all strong options to get you to casting planeswalkers, and some have mid-late game utility too. Next, cards like Lightning Strike and Abrade will help you survive long enough to play your big guys or will help take care of problematic creatures.

Supernatural Stamina deserves a place in you sb. The ability to bounce creatures like Festering Mummy and Channeler Initiate double their effectiveness while also acting as a second "Hapatra's Mark"

Could you REALLY though?

In all seriousness, probably wants Commune with Dinosaurs over Attune with Aether and the third Drover of the Mighty instead of the one Channeler Initiate

Replace your gifts of paradise with Channeler Initiate a mana dork and you get -1/-1 counters. also consider white mana for dust. I also like Tenacious Hunter in decks like these. Maybe Winding Constrictor to help the counter game.

If you feel like buying a planeswalker deck theres. Liliana, Death Wielder and Liliana's Influence

Thanks for the comment Voidmen. I currently don't have an energy outlet other than the Aether Hubs and Servant and I am not sure I need one outside of those. I would play Rogue Refiner because a 3/2 for 3 that draws a card is already good enough to earn a spot in the deck. Servant is also a pretty good mana-dork. The only other ones I would consider are Channeler Initiate or Weaver of Currents maybe? I have considered 2-3 copies of Aethersphere Harvester as an energy dump since it would almost have perma-lifelink in this deck and it'd be easy to crew. Thanks again.

Hi there. I've a similar deck Ruric Thar Smash Face with only a few noncreature spells. Maybe you can find some ideas there. On a quick view I'd suggest:

From your list I got Radha, Voyaging Satyr, Wasteland (if I can get one).
