Thanks Seantastic! I forgot about Terra Stomper actually, and he's a great idea and seems worthy to run maybe 3 of. For seems a bit iffy but we'll see! Arbor Colossus are staying because its my only answer to Stormbreath Dragon (minus Plummet that I'm putting in sideboard) and he's also a full 3 devotion which is pretty awesome. But considering that black isnt worth splashing in your opinion, maybe I can drop the Reaper of the Wilds and add the Terra Stompers. However, I dont know what I'll throw in for Garruk, but it all depends on spoilers... Maybe black will still make it in. But anyway, thanks a lot!
Really liking how this deck is shaping up. I'm curious to see what it becomes when Kalonian Hydra , Witchstalker , and Pacifism rotate out (plus a few cards in your Sideboard). I think Banishing Light for Pacifism makes sense. It's 1 more mana, but you have the ramp and it can deal with all nonland permanents. I think for your 4 creatures you should consider Genesis Hydra . You have the ramp for it and he can help you throw out Fleecemane Lion , Courser of Kruphix , or hell even one of your Planeswalkers if you have 7 or 8 mana. I will also say for the sideboard consider Arbor Colossus . He's a fatty with Plummet built in plus reach.
Anyway I think this is going to be a force to contend with. Can't wait to play (lose) against it!
Courser isn't all that expensive now, since it is in the clash pack (around 9-10 dollars from tcg average, I just checked myself). If you wanted to get them, I'd get multiple copies of the clash pack, as some of the alternate arts could be valuable in the future.
For sideboard, I'd recommend Soul of New Phyrexia , it's especially useful in the control matchup, as you get at least one activation, unless they run Dissipate . Is your local metagame running a lot of constellation decks? If so, you can keep some of the Back to Nature , but four is excessive. I'd recommend running 1-2 Reclamation Sage , as they provide devotion, can target anything you need it to, and they can be hit off of Genesis Hydra . Four of the archetype is really excessive, I would only run one at the most. If you have problems with planeswalkers, I"d recommend Pithing Needle . If you have trouble with fliers, I think Plummet is okay, but Arbor Colossus can handle fliers just fine. Maybe Restock so you can get some things back in longer games?
Splashing for red isn't extremely difficult land wise, as Temple of Abandon is relatively cheap now, as is the Xenagod.
I like the idea of Plummet . I haven't had the need for any more Forest in any match I have played in yet, if anything, I have been flooded. I know that Colossus of Akros doesn't really fit into the deck, but it is just fun to make monstrous.
You have a lot of singletons running around you should try more to focus this deck in especially if you want to get anything done it running at least 2 of everything just to double your odds of drawing it when you need it or want it. Cards like Plummet are also too narrow to really matter unless you happen to be against an angel dragon deck of hell fire and rapture. Cards like Doom Blade or even Tragic Slip (for indestructible) work much better of course everyone has their favorite black removal but removal is just what black does you could also try Putrefy just as its blanket creature and artifact removal.
