you'll probably like Symbiotic Wurm, Nantuko Husk, Scute Mob, Skylasher, and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest since they all fit the theme, colors, and synergize well with your other cards. As for budget lands, I suggest Evolving Wilds, Jungle Hollow, Terramorphic Expanse, and Golgari Rot Farm. Good luck finding all the cards you need and welcome back to magic!

Skylasher might be a good replacement for Bassara Tower Archer. Also Rhonas the Indomitable is better then Nylea, God of the Hunt for Collected Company. If you are really concerned about strait up hexproof on your creatures then Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense can be a universal protector.

Also, not a single Scavenging Ooze in the whole 75? Or Dismember? These are very good hate cards and Scavenging Ooze can be hit by Collected Company. And speaking of hate cards for the sideboard, Kitchen Finks is good for your deck as it wrecks aggro and can be hit by Collected Company.

I have a lot of experience with mono green aggro in modern so if you want to talk some more I would be happy to! Here is my decklist (although a bit more traditional): http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/11-12-17-modern-mono-green-stompy/

I have to agree with the comments on your deck's comment page: Where in God's name are your Avatar of the Resolute? Mono-Green Stompy is built around Avatar of the Resolute and relies on it for getting things done. It makes your Experiment Ones, Scavenging Oozes, and Strangleroot Geists do even more work. It even makes Young Wolf viable.

Champion of Lambholt is cute but as you say, it's a pet card. The problem is that it's taking up room.

I'm also not a fan of Overwhelming Stampede and so many Blossoming Defense. The only pump spells that I would use besides Aspect of Hydra are Mutagenic Growth or Vines of Vastwood.

Cutting this excess fat makes room for Avatar of the Resolute, Groundbreaker, Hardened Scales, Narnam Renegade, Dungrove Elders, and so on.

I also don't think you're getting much benefit from your mana base. Nephalia Academy and Field of Ruin are kind of ho-hum in this deck. You can board in Acidic Slime, Beast Within, or Mwonvuli Acid-Moss. You don't care about counterspells because you can board in Thrun, the Last Troll, Skylasher, Great Sable Stag, and Choke. I'd drop down to 19 lands and play a 3rd. Treetop Village. Everything else should be Forests.

The other utility land that's viable instead of the 3rd. Treetop Village is Oran-Rief, the Vastwood.

Apostle's Blessing Invigorated Rampage Temur Battlerage Distortion Strike Artful Dodge. The deck looks fun and pretty effective, just needs a way to ensure the damage gets in. Dive Down and Blossoming Defense are both good ways to protect the fiend. Your sideboard would probably want Destructive Revelry and some creatures that are immune to colors so like Great Sable Stag, Skylasher, and probably some stability against burn so Dragon's Claw

In my humble opinion if control is a problem, there are better options to deal with counterspells than Vexing Shusher - as in the end its a "dead card" in the sense that it does nothing beside preventing counters.

Cards like Mistcutter Hydra, Skylasher, Isao, Enlightened Bushi, Prowling Serpopard & Thrun, the Last Troll all have built useful bodies, and built in hexproof without any additional mana investment.

Sorry if this comes off as rude to you, but delve does not get rid of the cards needed to scavenge. In fact, it does nothing to put cards into your graveyard , and only makes use of the cards that were dumped into the yard with spells like Mulch, Grisly Salvage, and other instants / sorceries that were used up and sent to the graveyard over the course of the game.

Blossoming Defense and Vines of Vastwood are both better at stopping a burn spell as compared to Predator's Strike. Because of how this deck can easily get extra cards in the yard, casting Become Immense cheaply should be fairly consistent, and has been so far in my testing. The main usefulness of Predator's Strike is that it gives trample, and in most cases, the only creatures you'll be casting is Death's Shadow and Varolz, the Scar-Striped.

hello there!

I have some additional suggestions for your deck. perhaps moving the Birds of Paradise over into your mainboard? currently, your mainboard 1 ofs are not suitable to be played on turn 1 (pump, or bioshift). Birds of Paradise helps you out, as well as being a flyer you can pump up later on. I really recommend this, as while I was testing, every round with a good hand would go something like this. turn 1 either death shadow or nothing, turn 2 mulch or grisly salvage, turn 3 varolz. If you had birds of paradise included, you could do something like this. turn 1 birds, turn 2 grisly salvage and death's shadow, turn 3 varaolz and put 13 counters on birds, turn 4 use some removal some pump, and swing for lethal. Although your deck can already win on turn 4, keeping Birds of Paradise in the mainboard to start with helps out with more consistent wins. Mire Boa and Skylasher are great cards, but on turn 2, your deck generally needs to be casting a mulch or a grisly salvage (provided you didn't cast a death shadow on turn 1).
