I think Endless One would help you curve out a lot smoother. Play it at whatever tempo suits the match.

Also I think Verdurous Gearhulk is a much more versatile 5 drop than Ridgescale Tusker. Its good even with one other creature on board where as Ridgescale is more dependent on your board being flush with creatures to get its full use.

I also don't see why you are playing Unbridled Growth since it's just a one mana cycle. I fell like theres better option than using that card. Maybe something like Animation Module instead to go wide with creatures and synergies with Ridgescale Tusker or Rishkar, Peema Renegade.

Thanks for the feedback BlaineTog! With some of the testing I've done, I agree that there should be some more creatures and fewer lands. Next iteration will probably be around 22 creatures and 20 lands. For the suggestions: 1) I will try replacing both Lifecrafter's Bestiary with 2 copies of Armorcraft Judge. The scrying has been nice, but the extra draw(s) don't happen as often as I would have liked. 2) I'm thinking of swapping out the one copy of Ridgescale Tusker for a Cultivator of Blades. The Tusker can be a dead draw/play with an empty board, where the Cultivator can at least provide a couple of chump blockers. 3) While Lifecrafter's Gift is expensive, it has been useful. I'll try cutting them down to 2 copies, and replace them with 2 Peema Outrider. 4) Sylvan Advocate had slipped my mind, since it didn't add to the counters-theme of the deck. I'm thinking that since the deck isn't the best at triggering revolt by itself, that I can swap out the 3 copies of Greenwheel Liberator with the Advocates. 5) Nature's Way will definitely do some work in this deck, but like you said, it's hard to figure out what to cut. I'll probably go back on my word and cut those last 2 Lifecrafter's Gifts for now and see what happens. Again, thanks for the feeback!

My suggestion is my deck, which is super-strong. The #1 changes I would make are: Fatal Push instead of Heroic Action, lower CMC in general, switch out Ridgescale Tusker for Verdurous Gearhulk (if you can afford it), and probably get rid of white because Oath of Ajani tends to be just a weaker Nissa, it's rare to throw it down early in the game, plus Ajani Unyielding actually has almost no synergy with this deck.
