Giant Growth Discussion

I have always liked Silverfur Partisan, add some buffs like Moonlight Hunt which you already have, Titan's Strength, Rush of Adrenaline, Warriors' Lesson, Mutagenic Growth, Giant Growth, and it damoens removal.

The rest: all your noncreature spells look good, but I would opt for a few modifications/additions:
I would try and squeeze in some "draw cards"-cards like Divination, some mana ramping like Rampant Growth, some removal like Naturalize, or Bramblecrush, some cheap combattricks and boosting like Giant Growth or Distortion Strike, and some recursion like Reclaim.
I personally dislike limited conterspells like dispel, stick with Cancel, and you won't be bummed out, when your opponent attempts to cast something nasty, and it just happens to be the one card type that your counterspell can't deal with.
By now, you'll probably have noticed that I'm not suggesting any rare or expensive cards. That's cause this is your first, and casual deck, and I simply don't see any reason to make this deck wildly competitive, yet, when you're just getting to know it.
Anyways, I hope this has been helpful. I hope you come to love and cherish the deck, and go on to build many many more. Have an awesome day!

Mayor of Avabruck Flip could help you out! Withstand Death is honestly kind of mediocre. Try Blossoming Defense in its place. Life and Limb makes your forests 1/1s, but that just puts your lands at risk of dying. Hamlet Captain could work well here, as well as Burning-Tree Emissary. If Aspect of Hydra is regularly giving +4/+4, cut some Giant Growths to run a playset of Aspects.

I love suggestions!
@DaringApprenticeI went Arcane mostly out of flavor, and because they're functional reprints of cards I'd already considered(Wear Away is essentially naturalize with a sometimes trigger for Arcane so why not). Return to Earth is amazing for it's utility to pop flying creatures though, I'll probably put that in.
Drumhunter is good, since the draw power is actually more important than mana. I'd never even seen Deglamer so that's going in too, thanks!
I considered Blanchwood Armor but I find in EDH putting it on the general triggers people to try and murder him, whereas Strength of Cedars can be played as a combat trick. I still like Blanchwood though, I might swap it for something else in the deck.
I like Gigantomancer, but in play-testing I found it got splatted every time it came out before it could be useful.
Yavimaya Enchantress is good, but I might take out both.
@Vortexflame: That's true, but Herald doesn't fit into my economy pricing(It's just a tad too expensive). Primal bellow's really nice though. Swapping it for Strength of Cedars because it's just cheaper and Daring is right that I lack arcane spells anyway.

Love this sort of deck, I run something similar but I don't have the blue splash. You could think about Expedite or Crimson Wisps to turn a red cantrip into a Giant Growth. Another option is, keeping with the turn 2 win, splash black over green. You don't really need green mana for anything, you have the mires and the Cinder Glade can be replaced with Smoldering Marsh. The idea is to add Tainted Strike to kill with infect even faster. Sorry for the wall of text, +1 from me

If you want more suggestions, here are some more:
Since you don't have too many Arcane cards in general, I'd recommend taking out all of them and replacing them with cards that work better in general.

I like it. It's funny how stupidly good this is :P
If i would do some changes, Awaken the Bear was in the deck mostly because it had Bear in its name, but everytime i draw this card, i just wished it was something else like Giant Growth. Or maybe something like Ferocious Charge.
Maybe you could remove some Forest, the mana curve is pretty low, so you can add more of the good stuff. Personnally i would add more Prey Upon, sometimes you just need a simple removal to win and 1 is hard to find in a deck.
For the sideboard: i never really tough about it, in my deck i just put more bears. But you need a card like Natural State to take on enchantments or artifact.
In the end, it's just a matter of preferences, your deck is pretty solid as it is. You just need to Look for the bear necessities.
