Creature — Beast

Trample (If this creature would assign enough damage to its blockers to destroy them, you may have it assign the rest of its damage to defending player or planeswalker.)

Also, this is more personal preference but Garruk's Companion, is sometimes seen as a better sub for Kalonian Tusker since it has trample and only 1 less toughness. So in mid/late game when you get your buff spells, you can slap them on companion and it will trample.

If your going for a devotion type build having more mana symbols as early as possible would be good. So cards like Garruk's Companion, Strangleroot Geist, and Steel Leaf Champion could all work really well in here.

Like many green decks I see, this one has the problem of being pulled in too many different directions. Cards like Garruk's Companion, Rancor, and Leatherback Baloth hint at a very aggressive stompy strategy. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Essence Warden and the Wild Beastmaster + Elder of Laurels combo would be better in a dedicated go-wide token deck. Llanowar Elves, Wild Growth, Primeval Titan, and Elderscale Wurm fit better in pure ramp. I would dedicate more resources to a single one of these strategies, maybe having a second as support. This will improve synergy and consistency by lessening the chance of drawing cards that don't work optimally together. For example, if you have some 7 drop bombs in hand, you'd much rather draw Wild Growth than Boar Umbra, and the reverse would be true if you had a hand of cheap beaters.

Some cards I'd recommend for stompy are Steel Leaf Champion, Dryad Militant, Experiment One, and Strangleroot Geist. Some cards for tokens are Parallel Lives, Mycoloth, Centaur's Herald, and Call the Scions. Cards for ramp include Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr, Garruk Wildspeaker, and Genesis Wave. And since you're mono, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will almost always be great.

tacolad I just today changed Garruk's Companion for Kalonian Tusker but in the few games, I've played today it's worked out more than Tusker did. Also, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx works out almost every game and allows me to play my hand possibly on turn 3. And for Treetop Village, I never used it for swinging and it was almost always a forest that entered tapped. As for the 4 Groundbreaker, what amount would you recommend?

@Chasmolinker Avatar of the Resolute is Garruk's Companion with more late game value. I think the third toughness on Kalonian Tusker to help evolve Experiment One's with Rancor and beat Dark Confidant/Snapcaster Mage is a little more valueable.

Nylea's Disciple is less versatile than Obstinate Baloth, and IMO less effective in the burn matchup, since Nylea's Disciple can be killed in response to its trigger for two less life, whereas Obstinate Baloth is beefier and can't be bolted.

Thank you for the suggestions

lukas96: he should be running both Avatar of the Resolute and Garruk's Companion.

definitely cut the Treetop Village, Field of Ruin, and Nephalia Academy. you want ONLY green mana that ALL comes into play untapped. none of these 3 lands help you play a turn 3 Leatherback Baloth. replace them with 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

if you decide to use Avatar of the Resolute you definitely want to add creatures that can generate their own counters like Scavenging Ooze. Burst of Strength is a good option imo that can also give you a surprise blocker when your opponent thinks they can get in an unblocked attack. Vines of Vastwood serves the same purpose as Blossoming Defense and having both available can really hose over any deck using a lot of targeted removal
