So, my friend is looking to get into MtG, and she asked me to help her build a deck. Problem being, I don't know how to deck build. Nonetheless, I accepted, and she gave me these requirements/guidelines:
-Wants to play Garruk, Primal Hunter
-Modern-legal, but geared towards casual play
-Wants to stay Mono-Green
So, with this in mind, I drafted up this list you see before you. It is far from optimal, though, namely because there's a lot of ramp and not a lot o payoff, and some cards seem not to serve a lot of purpose (i.e. Lotus Cobra or Avenger of Zendikar). So, this is where I ask you, the fine folks at TappedOut, for help. Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

Okay, Modern is not my strong suit, but this looks like two different decks mashed together. What I see is half of a bad-Scapeshift deck and half of a bad counter-burn deck. However, the deck is called Temur Manlands, so I'll make my suggestions based on that. The first thing I would do is ditch those crappy fatties. Roil Elemental sucks, and should be replaced with 2xPrimeval Titan. I would remove 2xSylvan Scrying for 2XSakura-Tribe Elder. Stormbreath Dragon actually seems fine, and it dodges most removal, but four copies are a bit much, especially since it is a five-drop that has no synergy with the rest of the deck, so I think the right choice would be to take two out for 2xExplore. Also, you have no removal in a format that is all removal. Move those Spell Pierces to the sideboard and replace them with 4xLightning Bolt (or just take them out of the list altogether, since none of your non-land creatures really need to stay and your Manlands will be turned off most of the time). Also, Banefire is kinda ass. Take them out and replace them with 2xBonfire of the Damned and 2xMagma Jet. In order to help with consistency, take out the Temur Ascendencys and the Mindswipes for 4xSerum Visions, and Boundless Realms is WAY to expensive for what is does. Just take it out and add another Urban Evolution. Finally, I think taking out the Rattleclaw Mystics for 3xSearch for Tomorrow and one more Explore. It's probably a good idea to take out an Island for one more copy of Explore, because it helps you get your Manlands out.
These suggestions will help you lower your curve, which is extremely important in Modern. But it seems like a really neat concept, so I hope these suggestions helped!
You're welcome in advance, MOOBS

Maybe a few more basic lands and drop some ramp like Quest for Renewal and Rampant Growth to name a couple (instead of Rampant Growth try Map the Wastes). Make it so your playing a land EVERY turn. Also I'd like to suggest limit your dual lands. You play faster if you don't have to wait till your next turn for that one mana you need. Play dual lands like Brushland and Blossoming Sands. Ditch Krosan Verge and Thespian's Stage for same basics. I find while running a 2 color deck that you're better off with as many basics as possible and then have those "special" lands to help out.

Very nice Deck you build there. I play a similar deck for some years now and got some new ideas and inspiration from you for further development of mine.
- Vizier of the Menagerie, Courser of Kruphix are new and pretty good in this deck
- I would prefer a Farseek and/or Nature's Lore over Explore because those cards shuffle and you get a new topdeck card
- I am not sure if Soothsaying is strong enough. It needs a whole lot of mana for shuffeling. Maybe a Mystic Speculation works better
- You could switch an Island for a Halimar Depths for topdeck manipulation
- A Spinerock Knoll lets you play your big spells without mana cost and gives you a new topdeck card as well
- Maybe Temur Ascendancy over Fires of Yavimaya?
- Conundrum Sphinx is good when you know your topdeck card and 4/4 flying for 2UU is pretty solid too
- If you'd like a use for your small utility creatures other than Birthing Pod you could try Proteus Staff. It works against opponents badass creatures as well.
For more ideas you can check out my take on Intet, the Top Deck Queen
