Creature — Elemental
At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice Groundbreaker.

I feel that stompy is pretty viable in modern. Before it was a deck that played big creatures and hoped to see no removal spells, but now I feel like it is able to interract with your opponent more and has countermeasures to deal with removal. I think this makes stompy A viable and B a lot of fun to play. I have a list made in paper now and play it at times more than my other decks. Some things I have to say about the deck:
1) you want 4 Hexdrinker like Scavenging Ooze or Treetop Village , if you stick it after the dust settles they can secure/close out games. At worse it is a cool 2/1, but if you think about it, having it increases the amount of power in your deck. It means you have another card like Steel Leaf Champion on the top of your curve if you treat it like a 4 drop. Very good card.
2) I actually am running a list that is green and splashes black. While doing this takes away from the advantages of being mono green and only needing basic forests, splashing black allows you to side Assassin's Trophy , Thoughtseize , and Yixlid Jailer . This not only gives you more creatures in the 75 to attack with, but it leaves you with an easy catch all to deal with that one threat you need to get out of the way, and multiple cards to sideboard against tron: Collector Ouphe , Assassin's Trophy , Thoughtseize , and Damping Sphere . Having black allows you to be more versetile in interraction, and it helps that you have the horizon land: Nurturing Peatland to help with your splash.
3) Id take out Groundbreaker and Dryad Militant in favor of Scavenging Ooze and some evolve creatures. While groundbreaker allows for some reach, scavenging ooze can pump your avatar and close out games on its own in a later-game board state. It can also stabalize you against graveyard decks and aggressive decks. additionally, like Hexdrinker , scooze can represent more power than int manacost would normally allow, making your deck more potent. Evolve creatures are also really good because they grow beyond what their manacost would usually allow, they have built in upsides such as trample or protection, and they pump your avatar.
Anyways, thats all I have to say right now about your list. I will have my own list posted pretty soon since I now play the deck I guess. Hope this helped you.

Have you considered Manamorphose it seems like a 4 of in any deck that can play it. Also it adds to the one thing this deck was having trouble with (based on what you say)... CONSISTENCY!!! Another side benefit that Manamorphose gives this deck is the ability to hard cast Ball Lightning and Groundbreaker much easier. You also mention the mana base being something very important to this deck maybe cut 1 Stomping Ground and a few basic lands for some additional fetchlands. This would help with the ability to hard cast Ball Lightning and Groundbreaker easier (once again) and they also add to the "card draw consistency" through deck thinning.
Btw, I've stopped playing MTG for the last 5 or so months so I don't come on TappedOut that much anymore (response from me will be slower).

Mattydap Mainboard 2x Terminate , take out 1x Fatal Push and 1x Collective Brutality. Would also like to point out other options for getting rid of your opponents resources: Mind Rake and Blightning . Mind Rake's overload also gives you a way to put your elementals in the graveyard. Also, depending on whether or not you've bought the deck yet, Prismatic Vista works like Marsh Flats for your deck, and is a cheaper option. I'd add in another Surgical Extraction as well, after removing a Terminate from the sideboard. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame also seems like it would like this deck. Lastly, if you wanted to splash white, Spark Trooper is very good and if you wanted to splash green Groundbreaker would make a great addition.
(On a separate note, if you see a lot of Planeswalkers in your meta, Dreadbore is a good option instead of Terminate.)

A little late to this party but a Managorger Hydra would blend real well with this deck. I would run it instead of Groundbreaker as something to take some hate off your other big hitters and add a little focus to end game should you get stuck top-decking.
