Radha, Heir to Keld Discussion

I love decks like this, and I made one as my first deck as well. I still use it, and it consistently wins in 1v1 casual matches.
My style went a different direction, one that could be summed up as "Haste, or it's a waste!" So my advice is:
Rancor is great as well, but it provokes removal like nothing else while it's on the stack. People will trade 1 removal spell for a creature and a persistent enchantment any day.
You should be attacking with your whole team almost every turn, meaning that Zhur-Taa Druid should not be tapped for mana. Meaning that he serves no purpose except as an attacker, which there are better. Rip-Clan Crasher or Jund Hackblade for instance.
Radha, Heir to Keld offers great support with the mana you get while attacking, but the only thing you'll be able to cast without extra mana is Lightning Bolt. I would consider more mono red spells, maybe Brute Force.
You also have some great cards in your deck, Burning-Tree Emissary is a free 2/2. Works fantastic with Reckless Bushwhacker. Ghor-Clan Rampager is fantastic in both early and late game. Never get rid of Lightning Bolt. Vexing Devil is a highly regarded card, but I am not sure how it will survive in the current meta.
A problem that any deck similar to your own is the sheer amount of removal in the modern format. Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push are your worst enemies, and you will face them time and time again.
I hope you find this helpful, and I say none it all in a positive manner (I hope it comes off that way too).

Commander is certainly my favorite format!! I would be happy to give ya a few pointers for what it's worth!
One thing that I noticed off the bat is that you have lots of tapped lands! I think you will find that very annoying to you and even that you don't need quite so many dual lands in the deck. I would take out Inspiring Vantage and in stead put in Clifftop Retreat. As well, I think Hanweir Battlements does nothing for you but slow you down since your commander already gives haste. However, if you run Hanweir Garrison (which I think you should) then it might be worth leaving in!
Myriad Landscape, Needle Spires, Rugged Highlands, Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket, Blossoming Sands, Sunscorched Desert, Teetering Peaks and Wind-Scarred Crag could be taken out, I would throw in some more basic lands unless you feel like dropping a lot of money on a deck and get some expensive but good dual lands which don't enter tapped... but I don't think you will need those honestly.
I feel like currently the deck is all over the place! It needs a little focusing to where you want to go with this. Commander is much more fun when you focus on getting out fun combos or cards that pair well together!
I think what i'll do is tell you about some cards you don't need in here and then some cards that you should absolutely put in here, and then some directions you might want to go towards with the deck!
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is a good card, but you are running too many non creature cards! He will hurt ya! (i built a commander deck with this guy as the commander. If you want to use him still, you can check out that deck for inspiration). Stop Hitting Yourself!
Zendikar Incarnate , Omnath, Locus of Rage and Mina and Denn, Wildborn are better for landfall decks, and won't be as much use outside of it. By the time you have 4 mana, you typically won't have more than one land card in hand at a time anyways, and if you just want the trample ability, there are much better cards out there for ya!
You can find better cards than Sylvan Reclamation for removal, depending on what you decide to do with the deck!
Wilderness Elemental is not particularly great.
Radha, Heir to Keld is not bad, but the two red mana empties from your mana pool after your combat phase ends. if you want to go for mana ramp and something similar, might i suggest Savage Ventmaw or Skyshroud Elf? Those two are similar but in different ways. The nice thing about skyshroud is that he can tap for green, red or white (since he taps for green and the second ability would allow you to use that green mana to turn it either red or white) and you can use it to filter your mana to the color you want (besides green). the mana produced by Savage Ventmaw doesn't deplete between phases.
Oversoul of Dusk while hybrid mana, is harder to cast in your 3 color deck and the card itself isn't necessarily that great. Green and white are very common colors in commander.Now Rubblebelt Raiders on the other hand.. might be worth it, and less mana intensive!
Odric, Lunarch Marshal gives all your creatures double strike and vigilance when you have your commander out.
Bastion Protector aslo pairs well with Odric.. all creatures you control get indestructible.
Odric, Master Tactician is also good for you no matter what direction you decide to go with the deck!Content goes here
I see this really going anywhere. Your commander is quite flexible!
- You could find some way to play with your commander's untap ability (with things like Intrepid Hero or Heartless Hidetsugu and other cool creature tap abilities). you could use Illusionist's Bracers to copy the untap effect when you pay the mana cost. Heck, you could untap her with that free untap. Creatures with tap abilities can tap the same turn they come out as long as you control your commander!
- You could build a token deck featuring things with "devour" creatures, Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives.
- you could focus on large creatures that you can cast to smash into opponents the same turn they come out.
That's about all I have for now.. decide what you want to do to focus the deck and I will be looking to give you ideas wherever you decide to go with this!

if you dont have the Caryatid Radha, Heir to Keld might prove useful just for the mana it gets when it attacks which youre doing anyway.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
Maybe I'll add a tutor later on, but so far my list still has 1 card too much, so I'll first focus on finding what to cut.
Mizzazzi Regarding switching Sylvok Explorer for Sylvan Caryatid, I don't own Sylvan Caryatid, I do have Beastcaller Savant, but that's only mana for creatures... do you think I should replace one with the other? (with 30 creatures atm it should still prove pretty usefull)Or is Sylvok Explorer the card I should cut? I also own Elvish Mystic, Zhur-Taa Druid and Radha, Heir to Keld

How many cards can you think of that are mean to "mean" players? I want to build a deck that forces opponents to win in "fair ways", and I'd love help finding cards for a deck like this!
Using MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Tutor Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Gold-Hate Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Infinite Cards, and MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards, I found these cards (organized by color):
Based on those cards, I think I'm going to build a gruul deck using Ruric Thar, the Unbowed as the commander or a cheap commander that can help ramp me into my cards (Radha, Heir to Keld). Some questions:
- Are there any other cards for gruul that you think would fit this theme?
- Are there any reasons to choose something other than gruul?
- If gruul is the best for this, what gruul commander should I use, and why?
