What do you think about Mantis Rider? he is just too good to pass up right?

Pull a Tireless Tracker and both Courser of Kruphix. Replace with 2x Mantis Rider and 1x Boon Satyr (it turns on Rhonas and ups the Goyf count). Remove 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance and replace with either 2x Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Ajani, Caller of the Pride. Wild Nacatl needs more Plains or to be removed entirely. If you remove it, possibly even Goblin Guide should be in its place. Either that, or Flamewake Phoenix. I can't imagine that Birds of Paradise is better than Noble Hierarch. I think a 4-1 split of Noble to Birds is good. Prowling Serpopard is legit bad and should be replaced with Ancient Grudge or something.

Also, remove basic mountain because it's horrible.

A lot of the cards can simply be replaced with cheaper alternatives. I have this land base because I already own most of it, but you may be able to find a less expensive setup.

Cards like Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Geist of Saint Traft could all be replaced with other threats like a combination of cards like Lightning Angel, Mantis Rider and Thundermaw Hellkite.

Path to Exile could be replaced by Condemn. Spell Queller is a little more difficult just because he is so good, but a number of other threats and generic counter spells could do that.

Mantis Rider and/or Vendilion Clique are good creatures

Bile Blight deals with tokens and has a wider reach. Hit's annoying stuff like Mantis Rider in multiples and is at instant speed.

Collective Brutality can shine at times and at others it's a waste of space and in a non-Bloodghast/Hollow One/Lingering Souls deck it's often card disadvantage at sorcery speed.

Instead of changing Skyknight Legionnaire to Mantis Rider try changing it to Chandra's Phoenix which is the same thing but returns to hand everytime you cast a burn at your opponent.
