maybe consider Winding Constrictor, Scute Mob & Cloudfin Raptor cuz theyre cheap and get you lots of counters to work with. Triskelion, Walking Ballista & Darksteel Reactor for alt win cons. also proliferate lets you exploit the heck out of Parallax Wave, Parallax Tide & City of Shadows! nice deck!

Cards to consider: Rishkar, Peema Renegade - these guys will give you crazy good ramp while also getting peeps swole

Vorel of the Hull Clade probably only want 1 or 2 of this guy. Good but gets unessessary pretty quickly.

Chasm Skulker gets big then makes loads of deadly babies

Thrummingbird make more counters

Cloudfin Raptor great 1 drop that gets big quick. Awesome with thrummingbird

I've run Tezzeret's Gambit in similar lists. Have you looked at splashing red or blue instead of white?

Red gets you Vexing Devil and Devastating Summons alongside haste enablers. Blue gets you Cloudfin Raptor and Pongify alongside the usual blue stuff.

With a fetch base you can even start looking at even wilder cards- Bloodhall Ooze and Slitherhead, Thought Gorger and more. Just depends on where you want to look for synergies- +1 counters have been printed on a lot of good cards over the years.

Really fun looking deck! You might want to consider including some other low evolve creatures like Experiment One and Cloudfin Raptor. Also, I think Spike Weaver could be an interesting asset to your theme.

Ok, so I replaced Armorcraft Judge with Inspiring Call. It serves mostly the same purpose, but is 1 mana cheaper (yay) and doesn't give you a 3/3 creature (nah, it doesn't actually change much in this deck). I also replaced Cloudfin Raptor (an ok counter generator thanks to Simic Guildmage) with Hardened Scales.

Avatar of the Resolute is nice, but I wouldn't replace anything other with this card.

Servant of the Scale IMO doesn't really fit into this deck. If cast before Master Biomancer it doesn't do much, and otherwise I generally don't want my creatures buffed with 4 or so +1/+1 tokens to die.

Added two general "perfect scenarios"

Why not Experiment One or Cloudfin Raptor? They do need other creatures to turn on, but they can pretty consistantly hit that 3 power boundary- I've seen them in similar zoo lists.

Blistercoil Weird and Nivmagus Elemental are less traditional but fairly effective options in spell heavy lists- especially since you've only got access to U/G turn 1 rather than U/R. Steppe Lynx are worth looking at- but supporting white mana then fetch is less than perfect in your list.

I've been running grave hate against KCI and storm, just to slow them down. Be it Dryad Militant or Faerie Macabre, Scavenging Ooze or Skullsnatcher. (ninjitsu on bloodbraid is disynergy if you hit it, but synergy if its in hand. Its an interesting mix.) Either way, there are a lot of options out there depending on what you want to hit off braid and what you want in your hand. Heck, you can support Jund Charm in this list.

Aight, the big question- are you an aggro deck that combos out ral zarek? Are you U/R midrange? Are you a control deck that just repeat ults ral and hits with an Invisible Stalker?

At the moment you've got the kind of low cost instants and sorceries that speak to a Stormchaser Mage tribal deck, but the components can be swapped around in that to do a lot of cool things.

You can put together a proleferate list with Thrummingbird/Tezzeret's Gambit/Skyship Plunderer with Cloudfin Raptor,Astral Cornucopia,Braid of Fire and other shenanigans. Ulting planeswalkers every turn is a good way to win.

You could even build a true Fiery Gambit deck where you just pray and flip coins.

Ther big thing is to look at the restof the deck that isn't Ral and decide what the plan to support him is. Is it all counterspells? Multiple mana generating artifacts that abuse his +1? Burn that threatens his -2?
