demonicgrizzly I could swap Unflinching Courage for Rancor and playtest a bit. I also would like to know what types of match ups does the deck struggle against. I would also like to know what your think of my sideboard. Are there any suggestions you have? This is the second modern deck I've made and I'm fairly new to the format. But since your experienced with modern I would appreciate some help.

I like Loxodon Hierarch a lot. It feel a lot like Siege Rhino. And I personally prefer Rancor simply for the recursion, and it keeps the curve down. You do lose the lifelink bonus and toughness pump of Unflinching Courage though

Also I do not like "mono green stompy". I do not like the idea of making little creatures into bigger creatures. That's not how I like to play although I do understand that it works well. I did add in some cards like Aspect of Hydra and Rancor but that is mainly because it gives trample and I couldn't think of anything else to add.

While Consuming Aberration is a great mill card, it gets even better when it can hit your opponent. Often that's faster than milling them to death. Stuff like Rancor or Rogue's Passage let it get past your opponent's chump blockers.
You can never go wrong by adding Go for the Throat or other removal spells.
I don't think the Jaces are neccessary. They let you draw cards, but do relatively little to mill your opponent. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is legendary, so maybe 2 would suffice.

Hey veeonix, thanks for the suggestions. I've explained my reasonong for not including Mirran Crusader above (it was previously a 2-of in the deck, but it synergized poorly with Rancor, Dromoka's Command and Selesnya Charm).
I dont see how the Still-Moon Cavalier comes close to being strong enough for a FNM-level competitive deck compared to the rest of the knights, and I don't think I have seen it any lists to be honest, but feel free to provide some links to decks that run it. If I was to add additional high-cost creatures, I'd much rather include Citadel Castellan, Kinsbaile Cavalier or even Paladin en-Vec. The swords are definitely a strong consideration. If I was to change anything in that direction, I think I'd add 4 Puresteel Paladin and 2 Sword of Fire and Ice, and take out Brave the Elements, Dromoka's Command and 2x Silverblade Paladin

+1 from me, this deck definitely looks fun. There are 2 problems I can see you facing with this deck:
- you only have 2 Rancor that grant you trample, the only form of evasion you have... it may be best to include more evasion (either more cards that grant trample, there's Larger Than Life from Kaladesh, or you could put back in the Silhana Ledgewalker
- the other concern is you only have Spider Umbra to deal block fliers
The current deck is quite vulnerable to decks swarming you (they can block with 1/1's all day long) or fast flier decks.

I had originally started with 4x Rancor instead of the Vines of Vastwoods but there was too much targeted removal in my meta and I kept getting 2 for 1d with it and thus made the switch to vines. Also, I am trying to keep my creature count to 28 for as strong of a chance for Collected Company to hit as possible, so my only flex slots for non-creature spells are those 4. Rancor might come back in one of these days but at the moment I am going with the Vines.
I had Feed the Clan in the side for a while but the only times I used it against burn I it was never enough and I wished that I was increasing my board state as well, thus the change to Kitchen Finks (which I am currently running the sideboard, I just haven't updated it too recently :P ).
Surgical Extraction is an interesting card. I'm not sure that I have enough combo decks in my meta at the moment to justify it but that would be one of the better choices if they become more prevalent.
Thanks for the suggestions and keep stomping!
