Golden Hind Discussion

Cryptolith Rite and Burgeoning don't seem like great choices for ramp in this deck. You've only got 12 cheapish creatures in the deck to make use of Cryptolith and both Golden Hind and Dawntreader Elk's abilities make them pretty redundant with it. With only 21 lands in the deck, Burgeoning seems really unreliable; most of the time it's only going to be useful if you can cast it on turn 1 and it doesn't help you get out of mana-screw. I would swap them out for something like Rampant Growth and Nature's Lore, or, if you don't mind having off-tribe creatures in the deck, Sakura-Tribe Elder and Elvish Mystic.

I took a look at this deck, was expecting to see maximum greed with colors or weird casting cost dudes to sneak into play off Unburial Rites and Collected Company. Instead, you have Golden Hind and Garruk's Companion??
Also, please put some linebreaks in the description. You may need double line breaks for them to actually show up. Have fun playing though!

Tolsimir Wolfblood will boost your dudes and also provide a free token, and Wilt-Leaf Liege will also boost your guys. Armada Wurm, Hornet Queen, Giant Adephage, and Desolation Twin will give you some powerful tokens to populate. You can feed a bunch of tokens to Mycoloth to get many more in return. Suture Priest can help gain you a ton of life off your tokens and punish your opponents for getting creatures out. Storm Herd and Devout Invocation are a little expensive mana-wise, but they can yield a massive number of tokens if you have enough life and creatures. Speaking of massive numbers of tokens, Second Harvest. I would also recommend Cultivate and Kodama's Reach for mana ramp, and I would replace Golden Hind with Llanowar Elves. Also, you can probably afford to run 36 lands instead of 38.
Sorry for the huge block of text and list of suggestions! Good luck with your deckbuilding!

Hi, maybe try running Lifecrafter's Gift instead of Monstrous Onslaught. 20 lands might be too few as well eventough you're running Wild Wanderer and Golden Hind. If you don't get at least 2 lands and one of the two in your hand you will have a hard time playing this deck.
It's very budget based which is perfect for casual play.

First off, congratulations on your first deck!
Since you are playing several landfall cards, I would also suggest more ramp spells like Explosive Vegetation, Nissa's Pilgrimage, and Blighted Woodland. Also, Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves are faster than Golden Hind.
I would also suggest cutting the cards that don't fit the ramp and landfall theme very well, like Gaea's Blessing, Pacifism, Watcher in the Web, Highland Game, Briarhorn, Jaddi Lifestrider, Titanic Growth, Tread Upon, Enduring Victory, and Brazen Wolves.

When I build a 60-card deck, I write down what I want the deck to do (three or four categories) and sort the cards in the deck into those categories. If you want to improve the power of a deck, consistency is the #1 goal. You have a large number of finishers, but I would pick one or two and use them instead of having so many different options.
In regards to specific cards, Golden Hind is almost always worse than Llanowar Elves. You could use more copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx (since you have extremely heavy green devotion). You have almost zero card draw - Shamanic Revelation and Regal Force are good solutions for that. If you're playing casual, there's no excuse for any less than 4 Sol Rings ;)
Good luck with the deck! :)

Thank you MarkerD. I definitely agree that I should narrow it down to probably just the plants and fungi, but I will see how many of the above I can squeeze in first because I'd really like to keep the insects and snakes (as well as Golden Hind, Squirrel Nest, and Charging Badger)
shaftdiggity those will all be in indeed.
