Creature — Elf Shaman
When Elvish Visionary enters the battlefield, draw a card.
Elvish Visionary Discussion

The advantage of using Hulk combos with Yarok as General is Yarok gives you an extra ETB ability for small creatures who Hulk can tutor for such as Cloud of Faeries and Hulk can tutor for many small creatures including three two drops. With Yarok + four lands + Cloud of Faeries + Shrieking Drake equal infinite mana by tapping and untapping those four lands repeatedly. Adding draw from a creature who ETB lets you draw and cast all the cards in your deck with infinite mana.
The combos are:
- Protean Hulk + Flash : way to cheat Hulk dying to then tutor for and put onto the battlefield a winning creature combo.
- Yarok + Cloud of Faeries + Shrieking Drake : infinite mana.
- Yarok + Cloud of Faeries + Shrieking Drake + Elvish Visionary / Baleful Strix / Ice-Fang Coatl / Wall of Blossoms / Fblthp, the Lost : infinite mana and infinite draw.
Laboratory Maniac can be a win condition with infinite mana and infinite draw because the two drop can draw after Labman is on the battlefield. Aetherflux Reservoir is another win condition because you're repeatedly casting all these cards while being able to draw into Aetherflux. Like Storm, Aetherflux cares about all the cards that you cast during the turn before and after it's on the battlefield. I see Spellseeker and it's an excellent enabler for Hulk combos. With Yarok's trigger Spellseeker can tutor for both Flash and Summoner's Pact which lets you tutor for Hulk for free.
You're already playing several of these cards that can be part of combos, but other cards to consider adding:
Cards to consider cutting:
- Tishana, Voice of Thunder
- Greenwarden of Murasa
- Noxious Gearhulk
- Kruphix, God of Horizons

Phyrexian Arena should probably be a card draw effect that synergizes with your reanimator/sac themes, even an Elvish Visionary or Dusk Legion Zealot . Heart Warden is also pretty reasonable; mad respect for anything that powers out an early meren.
Nihil Spellbomb is a card that I promote for every black deck! It's cheap interaction, it's powerful, and worst case scenario it cycles for 2 mana. There's so much upside and so little downside. Perhaps you might like it over something like Grisly Salvage ; I think you sacrifice cheap things into your yard pretty freely, and less self-mill makes you less vulnerable to enemy grave hate. Or Green Sun's Zenith might not be quite good enough for you; it misses a lot of your combo pieces. Or you might cut both and toss in an extra land; 34 might a hair greedy.

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Great to see that you added Fauna Shaman as an upgrade :)
$1-$3 card upgrades to consider:
- Elvish Mystic > Moss Diamond
- Fyndhorn Elves > 1x Forest
- Arbor Elf > Thought Vessel
- Joraga Treespeaker > Commander's Sphere
- Birchlore Rangers > 1x Forest
- Elvish Harbinger > Paradise Druid
- Elvish Guidance > New Horizons
- Wirewood Symbiote > Essence Warden
- Sword of the Paruns > Joraga Invocation
- Guardian Project > Tamiyo's Journal
- Shared Summons > Citanul Flute
- Wood Elves > Nissa's Renewal
- Timberwatch Elf > Titania's Chosen
- Elvish Visionary > Hardened Scales
- Voice of Many > Wren's Run Packmaster
- Regal Force > Terra Stomper
- Temur Sabertooth > Elvish Piper
Consider replacing some lands and mana rocks with more one drop mana Elves? Harbinger and Summons are creature tutors. Symbiote and Paruns are ways to untap the Elves who can make a lot of green mana (Priest, Archdruid, Marwyn). Paruns can be infinite green mana with one of these Elves. Timberwatch, Voice, Regal are creatures that benefit from having lot of other creatures in your control which is good with tokens. I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Cards that I would cut:
Regeneration , Executioner's Hood , Natural End , Bladed Pinions , Revive , Nature's Spiral , Staff of the Wild Magus , Crashing Footfalls awesome if you can cheat the suspend on it, not worth it otherwise, Prodigious Growth , Feasting Troll King and Trail of Crumbs you lack enough of a food theme to run these well enough to include, Moldgraf Monstrosity the random return makes this lackluster, Jaddi Lifestrider , Soul of Zendikar the activation is kind of expensive, Tuinvale Treefolk doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion, Canopy Cover and Web auras not the best here, I'd cut one of Planewide Celebration or Once and Future , and finally, Sandsteppe Mastodon
No Sol Ring ? This a ban in local meta?
If you happen to own them, some cards that you may want to think about: Tendershoot Dryad , Beast Within , Inspiring Call and Garruk, Primal Hunter . Yes, that means more cutting but they should be worth it in this deck.

those two cards can also have a late game impact with Eldrazi Displacer and give you some control over the game.

I would say to goldfish a few games with less lands at least. You should be able to mana dork your way through any land issues turn 2-3 and then be drawing through tons of cards and still hit more lands than you know what to do with.

Thanks SP3CTR3_chelts, this also my first modern deck. I think Leyline of Abundance would be great for this deck, so I might experiment with running a few of those.
Also I used to run a set of Dwynen's Elite . I noticed my hand would often run out if the game lasted too long or somebody had a Wrath of God up their sleeve. That's why I started running cards like Winding Way and Elvish Visionary . Do you think it's a worthy tradeoff?
The sideboard is a definite work in progress. I just listed a few cards that I used to run in the deck.

Love this deck it is very similar to my fist modem (except i went three colour and regretted it with my simple mana base :P)
May i recommend a couple copies of Leyline of Abundance it is very potent with your turn 1 plays :). also with 8 turn 1 ramps and 4 cards that can fetch lands (not that they normally would) turn 2 you do not need 22 lands 20 would probably suffice (especially with the leylines.
But all in all the deck looks fun :D (sideboard needs a little attention though)
