Giant Growth Discussion

Ok, I made some edits to the cards I have in my deck. I also have 2 Awaken the Bear 4 Hammerhand 2 Giant Growth 3 Wild Slash and 3 Monastery Swiftspear in my Amazon cart ready to buy. Is that sufficient amounts for the above cards?

Woodland Cemetery (and any B/G duals) are helpful, but they make the deck weak to Blood Moon. Dryad Militant helps shut down Snapcaster Mage, Lingering Souls, and Tarmogoyf, along with other random graveyard shenanigans. Might of Old Krosa is a very good card, but a little out of place in this deck - we want to pump unblocked creatures, and casting it main phaze gives the opponent the option of blocking. Woodfall Primus and Tooth and Nail are high-cost cards - this is an aggro deck - we aim to win by turn 5-6. Melira is only really useful as sideboard neck against infect, and I'd really prefer additional Dismember over her, as they help against other decks, too. Giant Growth is good, but Aspect of Hydra can be game breaking. I prefer the latter, although it is a high risk-high reward card. I could understand someone wanting Growth over Aspect.

Hey nice deck! I was just recently looking at Infect decks myself. Take what I say with a grain of salt as I am relatively new, but I do have a few suggestions!
Infect decks seem to go for a turn 3 or 4 win, because anything past that and they mostly get out scaled in terms of efficiency. Infect creatures are usually weaker for their costs due to their Infect mechanic. Once other decks have enough Mana for blockers or removal. Infects game plan goes out the window. So you want to maximize the choices you have available on those early turns.
Glistener Elf is the backbone of this deck, and with a few strategic Groundswell's or Giant Growth's the game could be over in a snap. However with so little Mana available you need to be flexible. Phyrexian Mana gives you that ability with cards like Mutagenic Growth, Apostle's Blessing, and Dismember. These cards can be great additions to an Infect deck. These allow you to pay the Mana costs with life instead, which when going for a turn 4 or early victory, is an amazing trade off.
Cards like Phyrexian Hydra have a Mana cost just too high to be useful. Also with only 2 in your deck your chances of drawing them are fairly slim. The same idea goes for Putrefax and even your Razor Swine. A good replacement for these can be Ichorclaw Myr. 2 Mana for 1/1 Infect and conditional 3/3 is fairly good and gives you decent versatility to work with.
Hammer of Purphoros while decent in some aggro decks doesn't have much of a place here. Turn 3 should be almost a defining turn with you pumping up your Glistener Elf's or your Ichorclaw Myr's, not wasting the Mana for an Artifact that does nothing to help you at the moment.
Also the choice of Red Mana in general seems interesting! I see how it could work out, but when only 4 of your cards use red Mana, and two of those cards could be removed completely, I think there could be room to rework it a bit. Especially considering the Red Mana could be limiting your draws of Green to play your most important cards.
Most of the changes I mentioned should place you still well within budget. Just my two cents! Keep on building!

At least run 2-3 Woodland Cemetery so you dont have to always pay life for Dismember. They will basically never come out tapped if you know how to mulligan at all, since youre running so many Forests.
Dryad Militant isnt really doing anything here, and you have no huge creatures or ramp at all. a vanilla 4/5 can't be your biggest threat in a deck like this. Why not run Woodfall Primus and Melira, Sylviok outcast for a touch of combo? Tooth and Nail and basically any two 7-10 drop creatures is gonna hurt bad.
If budget is an issue, you probably shouldn't be playing modern as a format, and just change the format to casual in the description.
