Hi juanchite86,

This seems like a reasonably solid brew, if I had to criticise anything it is perhaps overstocked with 1 drops. One of the first cards I'd be tempted to add is Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, in a mono colour deck it just makes sense, I'd also suggest Primalcrux, Chroma was basically a prototype for the Devotion mechanic in Theros block and maybe Reverent Hunter. More significantly you need extra card draw / advantage, for green this tends to be tied to creatures. Cards like Elvish Visionary, Wistful Selkie, Courser of Kruphix and Eternal Witness could give you a little more gas. My last suggestion to you is a Planeswalker, Garruk Wildspeaker or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar would be the first ones that come to mind.

Dr_Pleco You are correct about Kessig Prowler  Flip being better in certain metas, and you could even run a split between those and Dryad Militant if you felt like it was better suited. Now for the breakdown of everything else: Reverent Hunter could pack a lot of power, but when you look at it, its max potential in this deck for turn three is a 5/5. Just looking at its turn three play potential, Steel Leaf Champion is much better, as it provides a form of evasion that matters more often than you might think, and provides better devotion for your Aspect of Hydra. Reverent Hunter can come down on turn four being huge, but than it has to survive to your next turn with no protection (you may have Vines of Vastwood, but I mean on the creature itself.) without getting killed by Fatal Push or Path to Exile or other various removal spells. Could be very strong, could be mediocre. Thrashing Brontodon seems alright, but it doesn't perform to much above curve. Power matters more than toughness for this deck, so it doesn't check well there, and if you want to use it as an artifact/enchantment removal spell you have to either wait till you get four mana, or risk having it killed before you untap. Prowling Serpopard could be good, but counterspells aren't excessive in the current meta, and the other available three drops perform much better. Thanks for the suggestions!

I've been looking at building stompy for a while and there are a few "out there" cards I've seen that seem fringe playable. Curious what you guys think about them: Reverent Hunter is huge when you curve into a decent board. Also synergizes with Avatar of the Resolute. Maybe as a one-of? Thrashing Brontodon is artifact/enchantment removal on an above-the-curve (if only slightly) creature. Prowling Serpopard is similar, but for control matchups. Lastly, I think in a creature-heavy meta Kessig Prowler  Flip can be better than Dryad Militant. Curious what some veterans of the deck think.

Reverent Hunter > Groundbreaker. sweet deck!

Birds of Paradise can save you from a lethal flyer, potentially buying you the turn you need to swing for the win.

You have four two-drops as Primordial Hydra doesn't count and your other 2cc is Solidarity of Heroes. Strangleroot Geist goes well with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Doubling Season, and Reverent Hunter.

Reverent Hunter makes waves as a one-of. Alpha Authority is a good card to have at least one copy of. Wickerbough Elder can pull double-duty for you if you keep the Gyre Sage, and does extra work with a Doubling Season on the field.

Nice little deck you have here +1.
A lot of devotion to green I see.
Have you considered these cards:
- Aspect of Hydra
- Karametra's Acolyte
- Nylea, God of the Hunt
- Nylea's Disciple
- Reverent Hunter ?

I've been thinking of doing a more mono green version of this, I think Reverent Hunter might have a place in this deck since it looks pretty green heavy. Maybe Armorcraft Judge. They're cheap, but I think in this style of deck Armorcraft Judge might be even better than collected company due to all the card draw.

Khalni Hydra is a must have in this deck. Aspect of Hydra is also really good. Nylea's Disciple might have a good affect on this deck as well. Since you have Doubling Season instead of Parallel Lives then Reverent Hunter might be good for you.
