I put in Den Protector and I think Giant Growth is not needed.

Thinking about including Den Protector, same goes for Giant Growth. Any advice is welcome!

Some cards you may not have considered!

Parallel Lives

Abzan Ascendancy

Savra, Queen of the Golgari

Avenger of Zendikar

Eternal Witness or Den Protector

Primal Vigor

Attrition

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Mikaeus, the Lunarch

Sigil Captain

Creatures with Persist can be reset when a +1/+1 counter is placed on them, making them very difficult to get rid of and abusing the ETB effects. Creatures like-

Woodfall Primus

Puppeteer Clique

Kitchen Finks

I can see Mindslicer being pretty fun to play but I haven't put him in to avoid drawing hate from the whole table. I found Entomber Exarch (or Nightmare Void) being a fine substitute for that matter. It still deals with storm and/or combo decks by taking their most threatening card and showing the rest to other players who can take care (save a counterspell etc.) of other cards if needed. It can also function as a conditional Eternal Witness when I don't need hand disruption so it's never a dead draw.

As much as I love Eternal Witness, I don't see myself running Den Protector and Treasured Find because it can't be recurred and I'm trying to maximize the number of cards which can be useful when they end up in the graveyard.

Animate Dead, Necromancy and Dance of the Dead are definitely all quality cards but I prefer more unique or swingy recursion spell (such as Wake the Dead or Living Deathfoil icon). I will probably add them if I find myself in need of more recursion.

I was running Buried Alive before and I cut it because I didn't need that many tutors and I often found myself holding it in my hand for the whole game. My deck, however, has evolved since then and I'm positive that I'll be able to use tutors more efficiently now. I'll give it another shot.

I found the foil theme deck Entomb on sale and has to snatch it up.

I love meren, and I have a meren deck as well. It's not on tapped out yet though, but I also find great joy in Mindslicer. It draws a lot of hate though. But being in black and green you u can out attrition a lot of decks when top decking. Also, if you find yourself needing to recycle more cards from your graveyard, Den Protector is a very cheap pseudo e-witness. Or Treasured Find, but it's kind of narrow. Animate Dead/Necromancy/Dance of the Dead are also useful in meren, and Buried Alive is a kind of supercharged Entomb that is less expensive money wise.

Cloudstone Curio, Snap, Primordial Sage and Glimpse of Nature are great staples for Animar. Fires of Yavimaya and Concordant Crossroads are nice too.

I'd cut down the land count honestly, 39 seems like a lot, especially given discounted spell cost.

Definitely worth looking into morph creatures, they become free to cast as morphs pretty fast. Icefeather Aven is fun, Willbender is awesome, Ainok Survivalist is good, Den Protector is awesome aswell, Hooded Hydra works here for many reasons, Ire Shaman is basically R: get a 3/2 menace creature and draw a card, and Stratus Dancer isn't bad.

Some other decent stuff, do as ya please: Master Biomancer, Solidarity of Heroes, and Vorel of the Hull Clade.

It looks like your deck is a mix of Warriors (or cards that synergize with Coldeyes) and Dinosaurs. I think between the 2 I like the idea of a Coldeyes deck. Once you have a more focused theme you can cut the rest of the cards that don't synergize.

+More Coldeyes and warriors, berserkers, and barbarians

-Creatures that aren't the type listed above

You probably don't need 29 lands with your decrease in curve and can probably settle around 23.

As far as non creature spells are concerned I like these

Lightning Bolt

Atarka's Command

Temur Battle Rage

Some other creatures that fit well in a Coldeyes deck

Den Protector

Combat Celebrant

Reckless Bushwhacker

Earthshaker Khenra

Fanatic of Xenagos

Frenzied Goblin

Goblin Bushwhacker

Goblin Rabblemaster

Khenra Charioteer

Lightning Berserker

Zurgo Bellstriker

Zealous Conscripts
