Also, try Magus of the Moat and Raking Canopy together. Make sure to taunt your opponent appropriately!

Some creatures that you may want to look into include:

Avenger of Zendikar - An elemental that makes more tokens that get stronger? Yes, please. A great card after board wipes to start rebuilding.

Greenwarden of Murasa Elemental 5/4 Eternal Witness that on death can get you another card.

Vigor Elemental staple that essentially makes most combat in your favor. Also if it would get put into the graveyard in any way, it gets shuffled back into your library.

Ramunap Excavator Don't have money for Crucible of Worlds ? This naga will do the job.

Sylvan Safekeeper So this guy is a good protector of creatures you control, especially with Ramunap Excavator. Also, he can win you the game with a four card combo. With Omnath, Locus of Rage and either Where Ancients Tread or Warstorm Surge sacrifice a decent amount of lands to Sylvan Safekeeper, then use Splendid Reclamation to bring all the lands back, making that many elementals and blowing an opponent out of the water.

Some non-creature cards to check out:Splendid Reclamation outside of that combo, this card is good for picking up lands that for one reason or another ended up in your graveyard. It also really sticks it to the mill decks.

Greater Good essentially lets you dig 5 cards deep for answers for usual the cost of an elemental. An easy way to draw cards and do damage. Goes well with some of the already mentioned cards. Also, it has real-life flavor text. Rare for cards now

Shamanic Revelation Draw cards and gain life. nothing to hate here.

Chain Reaction Sometimes you are going to need a board wipe. This spell will be your best option, as usually its a high enough number of creatures on your side alone to burn out the boards creatures. Couple this with Vigor and your playgroup will start picking up their cards, yielding to your overwhelming force.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All VERY IMPORTANT LAND. This thing makes sure your haymaker instants and sorceries go unquestioned. Praetor's Counsel , Splendid Reclamation ,Chain Reaction ,Second Harvest ,Boundless Realms: Boseiju has your back.

oh, and I guess a Gravity Well or Raking Canopy if flyers are an issue. Hope this wordy mess helps! +1

Thanks for your comment, twistedmage! Raking Canopy does seem like a fun card, but I'm not particularly worried about fliers, as I have plenty of ways to discourage attackers. Thank you, though!

Raking Canopy might be a good card to consider

I have a deck similar to this one and one of the wincons is Overrun. The card often closes games due to the trample. As for fliers, I ran Bow of Nylea, but there are other cards like Gravity Well and Raking Canopy that completely shut down flying decks. Hope that helps.

Raking Canopy based on your instants it seems like being attack by flyers is your main concern. This eliminates a large portion of the flyer base and leaves you holding upo the trior the most powerful.

Other Anti Flier cards: Dense Canopy, Gravity Well, Raking Canopy and Bower Passage.

Dense Canopy and Bower Passage make it so your flying opponents can't block your creatures either if you want an all out swing fest

Gravity Well and Raking Canopy make your opponents think hard about combat since they will lose flying and or their creatures will take a hit when they swing.

Personally I run Gravity Well in my mono green deck. It has no flying whatsoever so having it is a nice failsafe.
