Target creature you control gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn.
Scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

Yeah that was always my quarrel with playing Heroic style builds because if your main dude gets snapped you're stuck with 4 creature buff spells in hand. I like the new list, I think it's much stronger and more balanced. One other thing, and this is not a suggestion just something to consider, is the possibility of adding White just as a splash. That will essentially solidify that your creatures stay alive through Gods Willing , Ephemeral Shields , Ajani's Presence , and the new one from Khans I can't remember the name that gives a +1/+1 counter and Indy until end of turn.
Hey there. I have looked through your deck and it seems to be very slow. You also seems to be on budget, so my advices will be budget friendly.
At first, you shall think about what strategy would you like to play. You have 2 mixed strategies in here and that makes no good. You have here the Heroic guy who you are trying to make really big. Secondly, you have here some big creatures and spells, like Primeval Bounty and Arbor Colossus .
Pick one strategy and focus on it. Here are the options you have: All contains dropping red.
1) Add white. Your strategy will be swing for a lot and very soon. Then there are two ways to take:
a) You will be playing heroic guys. White offers you cards like Fabled Hero , Favored Hoplite or Akroan Skyguard . You may be playing cards like Gods Willing to give your dudes protection, cards like Rancor , Hyena Umbra , Boar Umbra , Blanchwood Armor or Ethereal Armor to make them really big. Use the green part of the deck mainly for the enchantments, your deck will be mainly white using the dudes and enchantments I mentioned.
b) Similar way to take, but might be safer. You are, again, adding white to your deck and those will be mainly auras. You are going to play 4 Silhana Ledgewalker , 4 Gladecover Scout , 4 Slippery Bogle and 4 Aura Gnarlid - except for the last one, all of those creatures are hard to kill. You may also add Favored Hoplite or Hopeful Eidolon if you like. Then you are going to make them really big - that will be done by cards like Rancor , Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra (both of them protecting your guys from dying), Blanchwood Armor , Ethereal Armor (the all-star of this strategy), possibly Unflinching Courage which is also very powerful. I believe you would be able to find some other good and cheap auras. Again, this strategy is quite safe, you may also add cards like Journey to Nowhere to take care of some creatures. You don't need any cards to give your creatures protection and you will be done with your opponent by T4-5.
2) You may like neither of these strategies. You perhaps like big creatures, cards like Elvish Mystic which give you additional mana and so on. This kind of a deck is able to pull really big things out by T3-4 and win a turn later. In that case you may check out a deck I made for my friend who was also on budget:
You may reduce the cost by not including the Garruks and Genesis Wave s. In that strategy, you can definitely play your Acidic Slime and Primeval Bounty , both of them will be good in that kind of a deck.
Those are the ways you may take. All of them are quicker than your current build and more reliable and at the same time they do not cot much more than this deck does. I hope I helped you with this at least a little and don't hesitate to ask me for help in the future if you would like it.
You need a decent amount of more creatures. Hero of Iroas Fabled Hero Favored Hoplite and Phalanx Leader are all great heroics because they are heroic and have a seperate ability. Favored hoplite imo is the best one drop heroic creature with Akroan Crusader running close behind. I'd drop enlarge and hunters prowess for some more ordeal of heliods and perhaps some divine favor. if you do run fabled hero i would drop battle mastery for Launch the Fleet to trigger multiple heroics. I'd also find room for Reap What Is Sown and drop the planeswalkers because they take away from your heroic creatures and/or buffs. Ajanis precence is good because it can protect against boardwipes. Gods Willing Can do that as well or help you push through that last bit of damage. Cavalry Pegasus always makes my opponet cry when i have a buffed out fabled hero in play. Still though i like the idea of G/w heroic (seems like everyone and their mom is running r/w or u/w)
Also, a single Return to the Ranks could always be fun.
I love the use of Tethmos High Priest ! I've thought about him in my deck, but opted against it. I also think I might run Abzan Falconer , because I simply love fliers. I still think I prefer Gods Willing to Feat of Resistance , but that may be personal preference. Nice deck! +1
