Love green devotion decks +1, have you considered Reverent Hunter, Syr Faren, the Hengehammer, or Predator Ooze (hilarious with Ulvenwald Tracker). Wildborn Preserver doesn't add much to the devotion count, but it feels like it would fit this deck as a mana sink and it works particularly well with Strangleroot Geist. Hope this helps.

Other creatures I think you should ditch are Nylea's Disciple and Reverent Hunter - these would both be better served as land and/or ramp creatures (20 land is very low for what you’re trying to do, even with the ramp I think you need 24ish)
Solidarity of Heroes feels like too much of a “win more” card to be useful. I think you should drop it.

Looking good! There are a couple of suggestions I have though. Great to see Evolution Sage in there and I would consider putting in a few other spells with proliferate. It is a powerful effect. ( Grim Affliction , Planewide Celebration , Contagion Clasp , or Pollenbright Druid ). Also, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Winding Constrictor would be great includes. Another thing to think about is the commander potential of Anafenza herself. Tbh, her effect is not very strong. Ghave, Guru of Spores or a partner combo with Ravos, Soultender and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan might be better I feel. Possible cards to cut would be Prey Upon , Ordeal of Heliod , Grim Flayer , Reverent Hunter )

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.
