Strangleroot Geist Discussion

Ok, since it's closer to modern, I'll suggest only cards that could fit that format
But, first of all, why don't you reduce your deck up to 60 cards?
Now, since your goal is to get big creatures on the battlefield, why don't you add things like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Steel Leaf Champion, Rhonas the Indomitable, Thragtusk, Acidic Slime, Craterhoof Behemoth, Gigantosaurus, Primeval Titan, Worldspine Wurm, Thrun, the Last Troll?
I've also seen that you have some creatures that require 2/3 specifical mana, so why not some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx instead of the Urza's Lands?
Cards I personally don't like from this deck:
Garruk's Packleader, already said
Last thing: since you already have big creatures in your deck, what's the purpose of instant and sorceries that just make them bigger? I'd personally add usefull instants like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense

Any deck that plays Nulltread Gargantuan gets an upvote from me!
Consider Coiling Oracle. Pairs great with Nulltread, evolves your 0 power creatures, and is a reasonable graft target. Also inexpensive! I have no idea what Fathom Mage or Master Biomancer are worth right now, but if they're in your budget you should definitely run them. Experiment One is another great evolve creature. Strangleroot Geist and Young Wolf both have undying, which is recursion PLUS a 1/1 counter! Avatar of the Resolute and Narnam Renegade are great 1/1 counter cards. Woodland Wanderer is a personal favorite of mine in 2+ color decks. I know Hardened Scales just recently jumped in price but it's a card to look out for if you can afford it.
You should consider playing some removal or counterspells so that a well-creafted deck doesn't just roll all over you. Mana Leak and Remand are cheap, effective counterspells. Unfortunately Blue + Green is the color combination with the worst removal - your best bets are Rapid Hybridization or Beast Within.
Your lands could use a little improving too. I know that's hard on a budget, but Botanical Sanctum is still (relatively) inexpensive, so you can try that. You could also look at Hinterland Harbor, though honestly I don't remember what the price on that looks like at the moment. At absolute bare minimum you could consider some Evolving Wilds so you can grab the color you want when you need it. They also trigger Revolt for Narnam Renegade, if you do wind up running that.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Overall the deck looks sounds aside from a couple things: one, Verdurous Gearhulk is way to expensive for what you want to do. Even with the ramp from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, 5 Mana is simply too much. I would replace those with Strangleroot Geist and cut a couple more cards to run a playset.

you should probably take out Treetop Village. mono G stompy needs to be able to drop something every turn and hit its mana curve, which you can't do with lands that enter tapped. a play of T1 Dryad Militant, T2 Strangleroot Geist, T3 Steel Leaf Champion for example, is impossible if any of your land drops enter tapped.

even a basic forest is better than Sapseep Forest. modern is too fast for lands that enter tapped, 2 mana for 1 life isn't worth it, and green stompy in particular should always have something else to spend that mana on. honestly, every noncreature in your current list except Rancor should be cut. 5 mana is too expensive for green stompy, and the deck doesn't need card draw. the biggest reason green stompy is even good, is Aspect of Hydra. so you need more creatures that increase devotion, like Strangleroot Geist and Leatherback Baloth. you can cut the Carnage Tyrant to make room. you'll almost never have the mana for it, even with your mana dorks. one last thing, you can save a TON of money by swapping the Noble Hierarch for Elvish Mystic or Arbor Elf. with the deck being mono green, using Noble Hierarch is basically saying "i'm fine paying $80 for 1 extra power if a creature attacks alone". that alone is crazy, especially in a deck where creatures should almost never attack alone.

To be honest, I am very surprised that you don't run Aspect of the Hydra!
The list seems sweet though, other cards I would suggest are below:
I fully understand the elf theme you run isn't fully coherent with these, but they are powerful fillers for the curve.

I think you should put in Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and here are a list of most of the Ghave infinites:
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ashnod's Altar + Sigil Captain = infinite colorless mana, infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ashnod's Altar + Juniper Order Ranger = infinite colorless mana, infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ashnod's Altar + Cathars' Crusade = infinite colorless mana, infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ashnod's Altar + any creature with Undying = infinite colorless mana, infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ashnod's Altar + Doubling Season = infinite colorless mana, infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Earthcraft + Doubling Season = infinite colored mana, infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Earthcraft + Cathars' Crusade = infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Earthcraft + any creature with Undying = infinite tokens, all your creatures are infinite/infinite (except the undying creature)
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Earthcraft + Sigil Captain = infinite tokens
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Earthcraft + Juniper Order Ranger = infinite tokens
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Earthcraft + Paralell Lives = infinite tokens
- Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ashnod's Altar + Illusionist's Bracers= Infinite tokens
As you can see, most of the include: Earthcraft. I suggest adding in Earthcraft, Illusionist's Bracers, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Triskelion, Walking Ballista, Parallel Lives, and Strangleroot Geist(for the persist creature. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with any other creature and it works the same way.)
I suggest taking out Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Utopia Mycon, Fertilid, Thallid Soothsayer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Krav, the Unredeemed, and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest. To make this more competitive I'd also suggest auto-sac creatures like Fleshbag Marauder or Merciless Executioner.
Sorry if this isn't exactly what you were looking for, but Ghave, Guru of Spores is really quite the combo master.
