Thanks again man! You're helping me a lot :)red and white decks are not my favourite decks and I would prefer to use B or G.I found this deck and some says is good:

4 Blossoming Defense4 Greenbelt Rampager4 Lambholt Pacifist  Flip4 Resilient Khenra4 Rhonas's Last Stand4 Narnam Renegade4 Longtusk Cub3 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar4 Ramunap Hydra2 Kessig Prowler  Flip4 Hashep Oasis4 Sunscorched Desert4 Desert of the Indomitable7 Forest4 Attune with Aether2 Natural State4 Rabid Bite3 Appetite for the Unnatural4 Clear Shot2 Creeping Mold

What do you think? You also said that mono black zombie deck won't be so good. How can you tell that? Is there already a list of the next expansion's cards? If there is, what decks you suppose are going to be good?

I'm fairly certain that Permeating Mass will trigger off Prey Upon because they fight, which is considered combat. Rabid Bite only has them deal damage equal to their power which isn't fighting. If I am mistaken, please let me know. I only made the deck to mess with a coworker who is extremely annoying.

I'm under the impression that like deathtouch, Permeating Mass won't trigger by Prey Upon or Rabid Bite as those aren't considered to do combat damage.

Love the idea, not sure if it will work in such a aggresive meta. Prey Upon might be a nice option, but Rabid Bite and Epic Confrontation are better if don't want your own creatures to die, or have -1/-1 counters cause of infect.

For casual play this will be a lot of fun to play I could only imagine

Mono-green doesn't have a ton of good creature removal but Prey Upon and Rabid Bite come to mind as decent budget options for someone starting out.

Yeah, I have several Overruns and Overwhelming Stampedes, which would work well here but which I've intentionally avoided including. I gave a big mono-green deck, Rampin' Stompin' Big Green Stampede, that features them, and I didn't want to rely on them too much in other decks for my casual kitchen table play, as it can be kind of un-fun for the opposition if overused in casual play. I would include a couple more Ezuris if I had them though.
As to Savage Punch, I've considered fight type effects in this and other green decks, but I lean toward Rabid Bite for the nice one-sided effect. (Plus, the artwork and flavor text are priceless.) I think I have only one though. Of the others, Savage Punch is particularly good for the +2/+2 it gives your fighter. I love an asymmetrical fight. :-)
Now Nature's Way is new to me, and I like it a lot. The second effect is like Rabid Bite, and the first is very nice too, all for no additional cost. And the effects synergize well too. Clear the path of something large, trample over what's left, and stay upright for blocking when done. All for 2 CMC. And it's an inexpensive uncommon? Umm, yeah. I'll shop for a few playsets of that in a skinny minute. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :-) Oh, and imagine how sweet it would be in a red/green creature steal deck. (1.) Steal their best creature. (2.) Use Nature's Way to smack their second-best creature. (3.) Trample through to do damage to the opponent. (4.) Fling the creature in their face (or at their third best creature). (5.) Win. (6.) Cackle maniacally. Woo Hoo! :-) I can see about 100 ways to make that card ruin my opponents' day.

It's cool to see a Mono-G Pummeler build! Looks solid!

A few quick thoughts:

Draw well!

Animate Dead and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are cards that would probably be good in here, maybe Puppeteer Clique. Puppeteer Clique is decent against removal too, because it has persist. Instead of having all that many Deathtouch creatures and relying on combat damage so much, you could also add in more removal. Murder Disfigure actually, Rabid Bite and Prey Upon could be good to use with your Deathtouch creatures.
