yeah, it's pretty clear i have little idea what i'm doing here, haha.
The ideas i had in my head while picking these cards, was to try and make sure what cards i had in the higher tiers had to either be really powerful, and/or have trample on them. And then in the lower end, i tried to put reach and deathtouch to deal with whatever my opponent threw at me.
'most' of the cards in this deck i have 4 copies of each, so i can change things around as advised. The spell cards though, are where i don't have as much. The two you mentioned, i know i don't have though. I might have something that's card draw instant, but i'll have to look through the cards again and see.
mainly, i want to build the deck around Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Gigantosaurus, and then probably Colossal Dreadmaw and/or Vulpine Goliath. out of those four, i have 7 dreadmaw's and 2 vulpines, but only 1 each of the other two. i'm thinking about possibly buying 1 or 2 each of ghalta and giganto though.

You are running too many land at the moment for a deck that has so low-costed cards. I would take 2 or 3 out and put in either Colossal Majesty for additional card draw or Blossoming Defense to protect your swordtooth and champion from spot removal. Shapers' Sanctuary is fine, but often times a card draw isn't worth losing a creature.
You aren't running that many creatures. Druid of the Cowl seems a bit out of place. Yes, You need GGG for steel leaf champion, but you have nothing to ramp into. with four auras that aim to be put on large creatures, if a quarter of them are bad targets then your deck won't function optimally. I suggest a Gigantosaurus or two in the place of ghostform and enter the unknown as a ramp target and as more creatures.

TypicalTimmy I agree that maybe Traxos doesn't fit this deck well enough. And I like DD, but my issue withem is the two red mana. I'd have to rearrange the land fix, and then prolly remove Gigantosaurus.
What do you think of Inferno Hellion? He's cheap and would maximize Sarkan's Unsealing, and serves as a decent Thud candidate. I think that 7 power is kinda crucial because I'm often on the brink of death by the time Sarkan's gets on the board.

Not incredibly familiar with brawl...but would Gigantosaurus fit here with the extra help from your commander color ramp?

Ok, first of all, nice deck, I like the idea of it.
Second, I do have a concern about this. Rumbling Baloth is just an overall bad card. It’s just a 4/4 for 4, with two devotion. It’s a common for a reason. In terms of everything, Leatherback Baloth is better in just about every way.
Nemesis of Mortals doesn’t feel in place in a deck like this. It works best in a deck based on putting cards in the graveyard, and you might get a small bit of reduction, but not enough to make it full value. If you chose the above two cards in terms of devotion, two symbols isn’t enough to justify a spot in the deck. Vorapede, Gigantosaurus, and if you can afford some, Khalni Hydra, which are also decent for their mana cost. Good job with the other bits, though.
I tried to make a ramp deck with a devotion subtheme, feel free too check it out. Devotion To Ramping. It uses the Acolytes instead of Nykthos, and wants to ramp hard into big trampling threats.

I would personally try to play Blanchwood Armor as it looks so great in a mono green shell. but then I would skip the lands who are not forests. btw you should skip Scavenger Grounds when playing Gigantosaurus.
maybe play one more mana dude like Druid of the Cowl who looks great.

Pelakka Wurm may be a viable sideboard option against the red decks. If you can cast it the 7 life and big body shuts them right down.
I see one inherent problem with the card choice here. You are running 4x Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma and 3x Gigantosaurus whose cost isn't reduced at all. Not to mention its always a little sketchy running 4x any legend that isn't winning you the game automatically if it sticks. The bear is solid but I don't think its 4x good.
I don't know your budget but I would swap out 2x Goreclaw for 2x Rhonas the Indomitable while he's still legal. He comes into play for G if you have goreclaw in play and can immediately attack and block, he can still give Gigantasaurus and others trample and is a huge pain for control decks, especially non white.

Dorotheus, thanks a lot for your comments.
I will love to include Gigantosaurus, but I am not sure how it fits here. I will give it a try anyway.
The reason I like Khalni Hydra is that most of the times I can cast it for very little mana (sometimes for free) and after that generate a ton of mana with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Usually after that I cast Primal Command and the rest is history.
As for Great Sable Stag, I like the fact that is unblockable when used correctly and comes in play early. I agree that Carnage Tyrant is better in most of the cases, but sometimes I like to play cards that are not what it is expected.
Finally, as for Garruk Wildspeaker, I am not a big fan of planeswakers, but I will definitely add one more.
Will update the deck list shortly after some trial.
Thanks a lot!
