Lantern Scout Discussion

Hey if you want to make this more competitive, I would start by running x4 of the best allies like Zulaport Cutthroat, Hada Freeblade, Kazandu Blademaster, and Lantern Scout. Also add a couple more copies of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Would shore up the top end of this deck. Most of those can be added on a budget. If you want to dish out some money for staples, add Fatal Push or Path to Exile. This deck looks to be a lot of fun, but move from 1 or 2 copies up to 4 for your best cards that cost 1-4 mana.
Here is my build. It isn't very budget, but it might give you some ideas.

since you're running BOPs, maybe Gavony Township as a 1-of (i know you dont want many non-colored mana sources, but it could be another mana dump if youre stuck with some jank hand). Here's the changes i'd make:
-4 Rancor (love it, but begs to get 2-for-1'd, when most of your creatures are bolt-able and have no evasion or protection, otherwise and it makes BOP into an actual real creature late game), -1 Forest, +1 CoCo, +1 Kird Ape, +1 Gavony Township, +1 Dryad Arbor, +1 Loam Lion.
For SB options, i like Stony Silence, Ancient Grudge, and Smash to Smithereens (in that order) better than Nature's Claim. hell, i even like Naturalize or Disenchant better, tbh. i dont think 2 mana is out of the question. since you are playing a zoo variation, you arent likely to slam a bunch of 5+ power creatures at the opponent at once, so the 4 life gain might actually matter. idk. personal preference, i suppose. it is nice to have some enchantment removal as well in case of bogles, but that kind of depends on the meta.
With CoCo in your deck, your sideboard could be open to more tech creatures, instead of some of the spells/enchantments. like Spellskite for bogles, Vithian Renegades, War Priest of Thune, Reclamation Sage, and Viridian Shaman for artifact/enchantment hate, Lantern Scout, Kor Firewalker, or Lone Missionary for burn hate. or generally a bunch of random hatebears and miscellaneous stuff to cover your bases like Harsh Mentor, Loxodon Smiter, Tunnel Ignus, Aegis of the Gods, Hushwing Gryff, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Burrenton Forge-Tender, Qasali Pridemage, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Gaddock Teeg... Basically whatever your meta has a ton of going on, theres a creature version to hate on it. I'm a big fan of Rest in Peace because it totally bones a handful of decks, but if you're firing off Collected Companys, with your SB hate lost in your deck somewhere, you stand a much better chance of pulling it out, than if it were an enchantment.
Just some suggestions. love zoo. like the idea youve got with the dino and god in there. seems cool. +1

Kabira Evangel is a nice way to get your swingers like Hada Freeblade and Oran-Rief Survivalist through. Kazandu Blademaster is one of the best swingy allies in my opinion. I also would consider a few Captain's Claws for more Rally triggers.
If there's still space, I also would suggest a few Ondu Clerics. With one on the field when you play another Ally, you'll gain two life. With two, you'll gain 6. With three, you'll gain 12. With a full playset, you'll gain 20. Lantern Scout and Talus Paladin are nice as well.
You also could consider adding a slight splash of black so you can run cards like March from the Tomb.

Kabira Evangel is also way better than Lantern Scout, so I'd go down 1 Scout for the Evangel. Evangel is also really strong with Collected Company, you can Company in response to removal or in combat and save your creatures this way.
