Hey, Fablab, no worries, when I started the deck I didn't really understand why they were there over something like a Kessig Prowler Flip either. But the long and the short of it, is that it prevents a lot of graveyard strategies with common cards and archetypes in the modern format.
An early Dryad Militant can shut down a Snapcaster Mage by exiling sorceries and instants, prevent Tarmogoyf from getting quite as big, and even stop some combos that rely on graveyard strategies. If you don't run into these at your local game store, it's perfectly fine to switch them for Kessig Prowler Flip
They're in the mainboard just because we have limited slots in the sideboard, and we need to make sure as many bases are covered there as possible

Dr_Pleco You are correct about Kessig Prowler Flip being better in certain metas, and you could even run a split between those and Dryad Militant if you felt like it was better suited. Now for the breakdown of everything else: Reverent Hunter could pack a lot of power, but when you look at it, its max potential in this deck for turn three is a 5/5. Just looking at its turn three play potential, Steel Leaf Champion is much better, as it provides a form of evasion that matters more often than you might think, and provides better devotion for your Aspect of Hydra. Reverent Hunter can come down on turn four being huge, but than it has to survive to your next turn with no protection (you may have Vines of Vastwood, but I mean on the creature itself.) without getting killed by Fatal Push or Path to Exile or other various removal spells. Could be very strong, could be mediocre. Thrashing Brontodon seems alright, but it doesn't perform to much above curve. Power matters more than toughness for this deck, so it doesn't check well there, and if you want to use it as an artifact/enchantment removal spell you have to either wait till you get four mana, or risk having it killed before you untap. Prowling Serpopard could be good, but counterspells aren't excessive in the current meta, and the other available three drops perform much better. Thanks for the suggestions!

I've been looking at building stompy for a while and there are a few "out there" cards I've seen that seem fringe playable. Curious what you guys think about them: Reverent Hunter is huge when you curve into a decent board. Also synergizes with Avatar of the Resolute. Maybe as a one-of? Thrashing Brontodon is artifact/enchantment removal on an above-the-curve (if only slightly) creature. Prowling Serpopard is similar, but for control matchups. Lastly, I think in a creature-heavy meta Kessig Prowler Flip can be better than Dryad Militant. Curious what some veterans of the deck think.

I'm not a huge 60 card constructed player, so I don't know how valuable my advice is, but here are my thoughts:
The double splash is going to be hard on your combo. When you want to combo out you need as few pieces as possible, as consistently as possible. I would consider cutting Feat of Resistance for something like Enter the Unknown. While it's only a Sorcery, it lets you get to Zada quicker, combos with Zada and Silverfur, and can perma-pump creatures. I would probably cut at least 2 of the Lambholt Pacifist Flip if not all of them. Your turn ones are going to be slow cause all your CMC 1 cards are target instants or sorceries, I think this is making your mana curve look deceptively low. You really aren't doing anything till turn two. I would consider Kessig Prowler Flip or Wolfbitten Captive Flip to replace the Lambholt Pacifist Flip, it gives you a turn one creature, which makes a turn two cryptolith better, gives you an early target for your pump spells, and both scale if you end up mana flooded late game.
You might also want to consider Vines of Vastwood. It can provide good protection and pump in a pinch.
