I'm curious, why run Birds of Paradise & Sylvan Caryatid in a mono-green deck? I feel Elvish Mystic s Llanowar Elves and the like would do just as well at ramping your mana, and something like Witchstalker can help cover the devotion side of things while also being more aggressive. Also, Sheltering Word is underwhelming when compared to something like Vines of Vastwood . The vines can be used to save a creature, buff a creature, both offensive and defensive.
Now, if you decided to splash another color, you could easily fit in something like Corpsejack Menace which doubles up your hydras when you cast them. Bioshift could be a fun trick card to be able to use as well. Removal on your Primordial Hydra ? well, we will just move all those counters to Predator Ooze .
Well I reckon I only really need 3 1-drop dorks being Elvish Mystic , Arbor Elf and Llanowar Elves . But I haven't got Llanowar Elves , so if I do somehow come across a cheap Birds of Paradise , sure.
Instead of Steel Wall , have you thought about Wall of Roots ? You won't be able to activate Overgrown Battlement until turn three, so wouldn't it be better? Of course, this leaves you low on one-drops, in which case I'd move Lignify and Naturalize to your sideboard. That frees up 8 slots, which can be filled with Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic .
5th. Edition, back when WhatSee let us have nice things. Necropotence , Mana Vault , Underground River , Animate Dead , Pyroblast , Ball Lightning , Birds of Paradise , Benalish Hero , Goblin King , Jester's Cap , Llanowar Elves , Counterspell , White Knight ...ahhhh what I wouldn't do to have a core set like it back.
