Hey, nice deck!

The advice I have is to play 4-ofs of both Adventurous Impulse and Grow from the Ashes. You have a very top-ended top end, and I think Chainwhirler will still be good enough to punish you for playing 4 Llanowar Elves. I'd personally take out the two Pounce, citing the fact that you don't care about playing answers because you're a stompy style deck, as well as 1 of each Aggressive Mammoth and Carnage Tyrant, since playing 6 5-CMC> game ending cards is a lot (I'm also throwing Vivien Reid in the game ender category, because, well let's be honest, she's nuts).

You talked about your worry about price in another comment, but it might be worth it to buy a playset of Hinterland Harbor to flex into UG Stompy, with Negate/Spell Pierce disruption and possibly Nezahal out of the board. Anyways, that's all, so good luck on your build!

Thanks again! Yeah, I definitely have a ton of fun playing this deck. I think a big part of it is playing stuff at instant speed, at the most annoying time for your opponent :D If you're gonna be fighting stuff (which is also super fun), I'll put in a good word for instants like Pit Fight Pounce or Mutant's Prey. Enjoy the brewing and good luck with the little one!

AjaniTheGreat I prefer that Pounce is Instant speed, while Rabid Bite is Sorcery speed.

Why Pounce and not Rabid Bite?

Depending on what your budget range is for this, I recommend a couple things:

Rancor Is always good with these types of decks. Satyr Hoplite with a Rancor stuck on it turn 2 is a 4/2 trample that can swing that turn.

Assault Strobe is good, but this deck probably wants Temur Battle Rage instead.

Since it's a casual deck, Rogue's Passage is always good to get your big guys past some pesky blockers.

As budget removal that will also trigger heroic, you could use Prey Upon or Pounce, or even Savage Stomp if you want that +1/+1 counter.

I think since you have The Crowd Goes Wild, you don't need Thrive.

Travel Preparations is okay, but without the ability to flashback it, it's just not worth it.

Ranger's Guile is a good budget option to protect your creatures at instant speed and trigger heroic.

Hope any of this was helpful!

I run a different type of red/green deck currently and having Rootbound Crag is very helpful. Its pretty expensive in terms of cost ($3.99 each on Card Kingdom) but it helps having the option of either red or green. I also wonder how many times your going to have the mana to kick Shivan Fire, might want to look at adding either Banefire, Shock or Pounce.
