Creatures you control have trample. (If a creature you control would deal enough combat damage to its blockers to destroy them, you may have it deal the rest of its damage to defending player.)

Primal Rage Discussion
2 weeks ago
Well, my only comment to that is that Swords is not a modern legal card (I don't know if that matters to you but your deck says modern format). If you don't want to pay for Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere is a pretty good substitute. Your creatures should also be big enough or indestructible with Fleecemane Lion so you can probably run some good fight removal like Dromoka's Command.
Another trample giver you could put in instead of Primal Rage is Selesnya Charm, which can even make a token for populate. I just don't like Primal Rage because paying 2 mana and a card for no tempo seems bad against both an aggro or a control deck. With cards like Nylea and Selesnya Charm you can still get value/board presence even when you have no creatures. But then again I also don't know your meta, so take this with a grain of salt.

Hey man, I see that you are a Selesnya fan! Being one myself, and seeing you want some deck help, let me give you some general advice.
I actually made my own 50-60$ Selesnya deck for a casual series I made for my friends, which you can check out here (by the way, please check out the rest of the decks out in my budget series. I made one for each guild). I'll just give you a few suggestions from that deck which should help you.
Instead of Rebuff the Wicked, if you are trying to protect your creatures I recommend you run either an aura that protects them like Shield of the Oversoul or a spell like Gods Willing, because not only is it cheaper $ wise, but it can make a creature effectively unblockable for a turn if you like. Dauntless Escort also has a similar ability to Reknit, although I guess you can see it coming, unlike an instant.
Similarly, Primal Rage could be turned into more offensive power with an Unflinching Courage instead. If you want the passive to all creatures, perhaps a one-of of Nylea, God of the Hunt would be best. She is great with Wilt-Leaf Liege because the liege adds 3 green devotion.
Some other general advice I can make is that I think you would be much better off dropping the Knight of New Alaras and instead upping Wilt-Leaf Liege to a 4-of, because unfortunately the human knight is boltable unless buffed while the elf is not.I also recommend putting in some better removal. My deck has a bunch of options you can consider for that. Also, Tireless Tracker is another card worth considering. Hope this all helps! Feel free to ask me if you need any more help.

This list looks great! I tried building and playtesting a Doran list not too long ago and never actually went through with it because it got really boring really fast. But this looks like it has enough synergies to be fun. One thing I learned with my list was that I needed trample as often as possible. Primal Rage-type cards might do this well. Great job! :)

Archetype of Endurance for more protection.
Second Harvest for more tokens.

Why Arbor Elf? You have no "special" forests nor enchantments to boost mana in which to untap for extra gain. The mana dorks (and rocks) in general (except Smokebraider) seem odd additions due to Omnath wanting you to drop lands. Why not more instants/sorceries to put lands on the field? Early game they'll get you to Omnath faster and late game they make elementals. Mana dorks may accelerate in beginning but can get wiped away and are subpar late.
I'd highly suggest more protection for Omnath because he's a magnet for removal. Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Bear Umbra, Boar Umbra, Snake Umbra, Spider Umbra, Archetype of Endurance, Wrap in Vigor, or Resuscitate all help him stick around longer.
In my build I was all in on making tokens with him. 1/5 of the deck was ramp spells alone. Two of the few elementals I included was Obsidian Fireheart (his burn ability doesn't go away even if he does) and Liege of the Tangle (we're already going to have lots of lands so might as well let them smash face too).
Haste for your elementals to immediately hit is wise too (get some value now in case a wipe is coming). Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros (good w Titania too), Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads or Mass Hysteria fit the bill.
Hope something helped!

I think Living Death would be a great wipe for you, maybe even better than damnation.
Jarad's OrdersIs a less streamlined buried alive.
I'd add Primal Rage to help guarantee you get through for the knockout with those brutes you're dredging up.
Cabal Therapy would be a better discard outlet than the likes of lay bare the heart, or what have you.

I understand that this is a GU deck, but with cards like Primal Rage, don't you want something like Starfield of Nyx as a finisher?
Also, I don't understand fully the idea of the deck (casual? for modern I think it's too slow for aggro and doesn't have anything powerful going on for control).
In any case, even for a casual deck Eidolon of Blossoms is a natural fit. If I would be to pick a single card that just has to be in the deck - that would be eidolon.
So, to sum up, how about:
-3 Primal Rage (I seriously have no idea why you have it in the deck)-3 Cloud Key (Utopia Sprawl is better)-2 Copy Enchantment (I am not sure we want this card all the time, it's nice to have sometimes, but AFAIK it doesn't abuse bestow, so it's really not that important for the strategy)
