Well I have a couple Primalcruxes, but what do I cut for Lead the Stampede?

I feel like you should at least try Primalcrux or Lead the Stampede. These cards work magic in my deck.

Primalcrux just seems like a big creature with trample that can be removed with nearly anything but not strong enough to end games. This was a problem I found in my ramp-stomp type decks. I am glad to see that this deck has a better gameplan then mine

iNaturalize I actually plan on adding a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx back into the deck, mine was put into a separate deck as a gift to a friend who lost his entire collection in the last flood. Primalcrux on the other hand I can't quite tell how I feel on it. It's a creature I would indeed love to try at some-point in the deck at the very minimum.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Primalcrux are some great options that I use in my own mono green deck.

Some suggestions from a fellow Selvala 2.0 player, I strongly suggest Throne of the God-Pharaoh, as others have mentioned, especially because you have the potential to generate some tokens. If you can get a way to tap them all down beyond combat its even more explosive, generating a load of tokens with Hydra Broodmaster or Hooded Hydra then dropping Harmony of Nature with a Throne onboard, you'd gain a ton of life and wipe everyone out at once. Effects that say "each player" are incredibly powerful. If you can afford it, Staff of Domination allows for infinite mana in a similar way to Umbral Mantle. For removal, you're limited in green but as mentioned above, Beast Within is great, Song of the Dryads is another out in a pinch.

A note: Selvala can work well with the x things like hydras, but beyond that just look for creatures that are undercosted for their power and stuff that can sink extra mana into to increase size later, like Chameleon Colossus which you have. Primalcrux and Realm Seekers come out larger than their 6 cmc costs. Duskwatch Recruiter is a good mana-sink that can act as a type of draw to dig through your deck for key creatures. Rhonas the Indomitable is a stud in this deck, 3cmc for 5 power on indestructible deathtouch body, with a built in pump and mana sink is amazing.

Some others to think about:

Hurricane/Squall Line-again, each player, as long as you have more life than the others, you can finish a table with enough mana in one shot

Viridian Joiner can be a second Selvala with Umbral Mantle, goes infinite very easily

Check mine out if you want more ideas, its been a blast to develop and play. Go Green

Currently Khalni Hydra is out of my budget. So I went with Primalcrux instead.

Delta-117 on Ghalta, Primal Hunger Commander damage ...

Oops meant to say Exploration not Explore. RazortoothMtg has given you some excellent ideas here as well, I knew about the cardsTempting Wurm and Sheltering Ancient but I just couldn't remember there names when I had made the post.

I will add another card to "Double up to lethal," and that is Hot Soup. Groundbreaker, Primalcrux, Avatar of the Resolute and Nest Invader, might not also be a bad idea.
