Creature — Beast Noble
Lovestruck Beast can't attack unless you control a 1/1 creature.
(You may cast Lovestruck Beast from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)
Sorcery — Adventure
Create a 1/1 white Human creature token.
(You may cast Heart's Desire for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Heart's Desire, this card is treated only as Lovestruck Beast in whatever zone it is in.)
(Example scenarios for Heart's Desire: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=1. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, you may cast their Lovestruck Beast from exile. You may cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Lovestruck Beast's cost.)

Lovestruck Beast Discussion

griffstick Stompy is about deck design, not individual cards. So Lovestruck Beast would go into an agro deck, even though it seems more like a stompy creature (requiring a 1/1 to attack for it to attack is much more likely/useful in agro than stompy).
Also, red has plenty of spells well suited for stompy. And even though green definitely has the most, 2-colored stompy decks with blue or white along with the green definitely exist.

Whith all that being said I might ne wrong. After all, these are opinions. It does feel more stompy when the creature has trample. Weather they come with trample or they get trample from somewhere else
But its feeling like a mono green thing. I dont think it's a mono green thing only.

Yep, Wheel of Sun and Moon is overall a stronger hate piece once on the battlefield than Tormod's Crypt. I still think it's close enough to make the cheaper option worth it, personally. Tormod's Crypt is actually stronger in some ways- it's much more difficult for the Dredge player to answer, even if it doesn't do quite as much to stop their game plan. And that's not even to mention the possibility of Grafdigger's Cage. Lots of close options!
I would happily work on a Pioneer list! I've actually been considering it myself for a while. There's a couple different paths we can go down here. There's the version with Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic that optimizes Lovestruck Beast and some higher CMC things. Personally a version closer to this deck might interest me more, what do you think?

Pyromancer's Impatience RR
Whenever a player would draw a card, instead that player exiles the top card of their library. They may play that card this turn.
RRR: Draw a card. ~ deals 2 damage to you.
It's hard to not set things on fire if you like the roar of flames.
I always felt Uba Mask is basically a red stax card. And I'm still searching for a deck to include it.
I love the flavour dripping from Eldraine cards like Lovestruck Beast. In this vein, create a legendary creature representing Snow White that would favour including Seven Dwarfs into its deck without being all too obvious about.

On to the creatures. Most things look pretty good. I actually really like the inclusion of Tendershoot Dryad and Verdant Force as a sneaky alternate win-con. Some things I don't think should really be included are your 0 drop artifact creatures. I don't see them doing much. I also don't really like the inclusion of Lovestruck Beast as he doesn't really fit theme and he can be pretty fragile when it comes to being able to attack. Satyr Wayfinder also could be replaced since you don't have much graveyard interaction. I could also throw out Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma here since she doesn't reduce most of your hydras, but I think her attack bonus is enough to warrant her inclusion.
I think you've got your bases covered in terms of what effects you want to have in here so I think if you're adding cards it'd be good to look for redundancy. If you've got Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in here you should probably run Voyaging Satyr. Llanowar Tribe works well with your Leyline of Abundance. Speaking of which, one or two mana dorks would probably be prudent. You could focus on more elves and do something like Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid or you could just do other dorks like Whisperer of the Wilds or Druid of the Cowl. Some more card draw creatures could be good like Soul of the Harvest. One card that doesn't really have anything like it in here is Temur Sabertooth. You've got a number of good creature ETB effects that you can repeat with the Sabertooth. Also, I think it would be good tech for resetting an X cost hydra that you played early in the game and making bigger late in the game once you land a big mana producer like Karametra's Acolyte. Some other creatures w/ good ETBs on them that you could consider are Acidic Slime, terastadon, Regal Force, Fierce Empath, Avenger of Zendikar, and Bane of Progress. Oh yeah. You don't have Genesis Hydra in here. It should be in here. Also, I really like your idea to get Seedborn Muse and Yeva, Nature's Herald in here. They are great.

Boza thanks for your suggestions!
I don't hate Wildwood Tracker in this deck, however I think the ability to play a 3 drop on T2 or a 4 drop on T3 is too big of an upside to cut Gilded Goose or Paradise Druid for it. Additionally, it doesn't play well with Pelt Collector like Gallia of the Endless Dance or Paradise Druid do.
In my opinion, the downside of Lovestruck Beast not being able to attack without a 1/1 is too high to include it in the main deck. Although it survives a Deafening Clarion , Shock , Bonecrusher Giant , or any bounce effect like Brazen Borrower on its own, it will not be able to do anything without the token or a Wildwood Tracker on the board. I think those two cards you suggested pair nicely, but in a different version of the deck, or even a go-wide version with more 1/1 creature support. Also, Lovestruck Beast does not provide enough devotion to help enable Klothys, God of Destiny regularly.
Ilysian Caryatid seems better in a go-big strategy, possibly using for Rotting Regisaur or Polukranos, Unchained . For the T1 Gilded Goose into T2 Domri, Anarch of Bolas play alone, I find having a T1 mana creature to be much more relevant. Additionally, selecting Paradise Druid over Ilysian Caryatid allows my Pelt Collector to trigger on T2.
I am including 2 copies of Sunder Shaman as a mainboard way to fight against the new Gods, as well as any matches against decks running Doom Foretold , Fires of Invention , or other impactful enchantments. It adds 4 devotion for Klothys, God of Destiny which is huge, and is just an overstatted body on its own. I don't feel bad running the 2 copies in the main, as this is a BO1 deck where having a bit of insurance against problematic enchantments could prove to be very helpful.
The one copy of Escape to the Wilds is a way to refill after a sweeper, and actually outperformed my expectations during the last standard season. You'd be shocked with how much pressure you can apply after hitting 2/3 relevant creatures with its ability, which can be enough to push for lethal the turn after you play it. I've only included 1 copy, as I am testing out Klothys, God of Destiny as a way to push the last few points of damage.
Finally, I see Collision / Colossus to be more of a side board option, where this deck is geared towards BO1 play. I think having the ability to fight with Domri, Anarch of Bolas along side its ability to provide mana and a +1/+0 static anthem effect are much more relevant than running a conditional pump spell. It does pair nicely with Embercleave , and can take down a flying threat, however this deck is more focused on pushing through damage to achieve a win on T4/T5 if possible. Holding up 2 mana for this effect is taking away from a turn that I could just play Embercleave or an impactful creature, and the list is pretty tight so I can't justify making 2 cuts for the copies.
Thank you again for your suggestions! Like I said I think they might be suited for a similar deck but aren't the exact effects I am looking to pull off with this build. I hope I explained my decision making well enough, feel free to disagree or build one however you see fit!

I think Galia is a trap - the conditions to attack with so much are very specific. I would go -3 Galia, -4 druid -2 sunder -1 escape for + 4 Lovestruck Beast and 4 Wildwood Tracker and + 2 Collision / Colossus . Additionally, in this setup, Ilysian Caryatid is better than goose.
