Lots of power, I think it still needs a bit more ramp, you want to get those huge creatures out fast, so the more land you get in play the better. Dowsing Dagger Flip would actually combo very well with Steel Leaf Champion and trample, once damage is done then it instantly transforms giving you a land that taps for three mana of any color, look into Gilded Lotus as well. Grunn, the Lonely King with trample can be very powerful too, he can do 20 damage alone.

Thanks for the suggestions, Argy. I see what you’re saying about having ramp instead of extra lands, and you’re probably right. I’ll add some more ramp into the deck, in place of the lands and Grow from the Ashes.
I agree with your statement about Verix Bladewing being a very good card. I run them in my own casual dragon deck, and it is very powerful. While I would like to add more, I don’t particularly like the idea of cutting dorks, because the ramp is very needed. I think I’m going to cut Grunn, the Lonely King for it, as he has been a bit underperforming for me.
Again, thanks for the advice.

Hey there !
Deck is looking nice but I'm afraid Grunn, the Lonely King or any big boy will get an instant removal when you cast it.

I had an idea which I wanted to share for a while. Let's face it; Pauper EDH isn't very popular. If anything, people avoid it due to the overwhelming amount of non-legendary Commons they can pick from to be their General. While it could be argued it breaches the spirit of Pauper, I think Uncommon Legendaries (Of the myriad of options we have, largely thanks to Dominaria and Masters sets) should be legal as Commanders for Pauper EDH. There's so much untapped potential in these creatures! Adeliz, the Cinder Wind could be incredibly good in Wizzet Tribal, Baird, Steward of Argive gives you what's essentially a white Propaganda, Bladewing the Risen could make Dragons interesting in Pauper again, Zada, Hedron Grinder is so much bigger than Valuetown she's practically the Value Capital of Value Country, Danitha Capashen, Paragon shows potential for mono-white Voltron, Grunn, the Lonely King has just as much if not more, Hallar, the Firefletcher could have interesting Synergy with Kicked spells, Ihsan's Shade which is an Uncommon thanks to Masters 25 might have potential, Iwamori of the Open Fist could do Legendary tribal better than Arvad the Cursed despite the Color identity, Jalira, Master Polymorphist could make for a great mono-blue Cascade deck, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" miiiight do something interesting, and Kwende, Pride of Femeref is another solid addition to the overwhelming amount of White commanders and acts like a slightly Nerfed Odric, Lunarch Marshal. And these are just the ones I thought were worth mentioning. I really want this idea to catch on, because Pauper EDH is struggling, and it saddens me.
Edit: I've been told that you can use any uncommon in Pauper Dragon Highlander. My input isn't nearly as useful anymore, but I would like to say that a lot of these have great potential for Pauper EDH nonetheless.

In your maybeboard I like:
Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.
I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!
Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.
Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.
Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.
Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.
Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.
Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.
Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.
Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.
Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.
Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.
I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,
Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.
Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.
More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

Pretty fun deck one card i think will be very easy to get in this deck is Vine Mare. personnaly i would cut the Grunn, the Lonely King as you don't have trample givers. In general i would try to be faster (lower mana cost cards) because this deck can easily play fast without loosing power. Get rid of the multani's and the grow from ashes the Marwyn, the Nurturer and add stuff like your side-board Gigantosaurus and Thorn Lieutenant. Get your land draw from other possibly big creatures like Merfolk Branchwalker and Jadelight Ranger. You might also wanne consider running 24 lands and maybe even run something like Colossal Majesty as this is really reliable card draw in this deck.
