Scattershot Archer is almost always better than Matsu-Tribe Sniper, unless you have a fat flyer-heavy meta. Killing all Spellstutter Sprites, Faerie Miscreants, etc

Either one works I suppose. If I were you I would cut Leafcrown Dryad for that early game aggro. 4 mana for an aura that gives +2/+2 and reach is not the greatest in my opinion, especially considering that you have Elephant Guide which I think is more effective at that. If you want flyer hate I would just put something in the side if I were you (some effect similar to Matsu-Tribe Sniper - which is great faerie hate, too). Also consider Kird Ape and maybe adding some more multicolored creatures to squeeze value out of Naya Hushblade and Jund Hackblade. If you have multicolored things Jund Hackblade effectively becomes the best possible version of Gore-House Chainwalker and Borderland Marauder.

Good cuts include Elvish Skysweeper, unless you have plenty of fliers in your meta. Disowned Ancestor: fine early game, and it would be hella good if outlast wasn't a sorcery, but alas. Graveblade Marauder is okay but it's generally lackluster (relies on your dudes dying). Herald of Dromoka and Dragonscale General cancel each other out. Petrified Wood-Kin is risky and Matsu-Tribe Sniper is just sorta lame. Spirit Loop really doesn't fit the theme of the deck.

Sorry I have to be salty here, just wanted to suggest some cuts. Also maybe drop the banners for signets (eg Boros Signet).

First of all: awesome name! Pochahontas is a fucking classic! Second of all, very cool deck. It's got speed and power - the alpha and omega og gruul! Kudos to you, man!

A few possible suggestions:

Creature heavy, as this is, I think Champion of Lambholt could do some good work for ya.

Champion of Rhonas gives you free guys.

Combat Celebrant... sells itself.

Den Protector is fierce and gives some much needed recursion.

Hamletback Goliath might be costly, but he is insane!

Matsu-Tribe Sniper might be small, be does well by protecting against demons, andels, and dragons.

Ogre Battledriver is a free battleaxe for everyone.

And Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is straight up monstrous!

By no means are all these must haves, but I thought I'd mention them, as they help me greatly in fleshing out my warrior deck: Warrior at heart.

Stay frosty!

You're welcome! I forgot to mention, but I would also probably move Matsu-Tribe Sniper to the sideboard. It can work great against 1/1 spirit tokens, but I guess for a mainboard card, it doesn't really do that much?
