You gain 1 life for each Forest in play.

Stream of Life originates from Alpha. Back then, "White is undisputedly the best color in this game at gaining life" simply wasn't true. In fact it was quite a while before white caught up to green's level of lifegain.
Fruition , Rejuvenate , Wellwisher , Nourish , and so on. It wasn't until Soul Warden that white got anything even resembling efficient lifegain imo. Maybe Spirit Link , but that's still a single outlier among plenty of efficient green lifegain cards.
Lifegain is one of those things that shifted on the color pie as the game matured. It started as a primarily green thing that white did on occasion. If anything, I'd argue that White has become too efficient at it, to the point that Green rarely even bothers with it anymore, effectively robbing Green of what was once a defining characteristic.
Finally, I feel like pointing out that in general, the best lifegain cards tend to be ones that are both White and Green. Vitalizing Cascade , Heroes' Reunion , Dawnglow Infusion , Oracle of Nectars , Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , Pledge of Unity , etc.

Step 1: Add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and swap some creatures around to improve devotion. Ex: Swap Centaur Courser for Swordwise Centaur, Pharika's Disciple for Seton, Krosan Protector, Pheres-Band Tromper for Jolrael's Centaur. This also makes Nylea's Disciple more effective.
Step 2: Add enchantments that help you tap forests for additional mana like Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, Utopia Sprawl, and Vernal Bloom. These gain the benefits from Herald of the Pantheon and Dowsing Shaman and provide incredible acceleration.
Step 3: Find something to do with the mana. The easy answer would be to draw with Harmonize and play more centaurs. But I think the more interesting answer is to go for broke with Genesis Wave or Primal Surge (after removing Fruition). Play all (or most) of your deck, gain a ton of life, throw in Concordant Crossroads for haste, and swing with an indestructible, trampling centaur army.
That's how I'd do it at least, though I must admit I am a sucker for flashy plays.

Wood Elemental would also be very lulzy.

I like it. I'd make a few adjustments if it were mine, though.

Feed the Clan is pretty good, but it would be better if you could have a creature. Jace's Phantasm works well in a mill deck and has potential to trigger that 10 life from Clan. Jace's Phantasm could also give you another win condition. Brindle Boar could be a more expensive creature you could use, and he can be sacked for life.
Dosan's Oldest Chant is okay, and so is Hunters' Feast. More expensive, but they are okay. I would probably skip the Hunter's Feast and just choose Dosan's. Or skip both for the first two I recommended! Haha.
Sorry that I'm not great in this field. I don't really play green at all, and blue doesn't do too much healing. Hope I helped though!
