Courser isn't all that expensive now, since it is in the clash pack (around 9-10 dollars from tcg average, I just checked myself). If you wanted to get them, I'd get multiple copies of the clash pack, as some of the alternate arts could be valuable in the future.
For sideboard, I'd recommend Soul of New Phyrexia , it's especially useful in the control matchup, as you get at least one activation, unless they run Dissipate . Is your local metagame running a lot of constellation decks? If so, you can keep some of the Back to Nature , but four is excessive. I'd recommend running 1-2 Reclamation Sage , as they provide devotion, can target anything you need it to, and they can be hit off of Genesis Hydra . Four of the archetype is really excessive, I would only run one at the most. If you have problems with planeswalkers, I"d recommend Pithing Needle . If you have trouble with fliers, I think Plummet is okay, but Arbor Colossus can handle fliers just fine. Maybe Restock so you can get some things back in longer games?
Splashing for red isn't extremely difficult land wise, as Temple of Abandon is relatively cheap now, as is the Xenagod.
And one more thing, definitely add some Mistcutter Hydra
I know you said you like your main deck, but I have a suggestion that might help. Your deck would really like to have 4x Elvish Mystic . I run the playset in my RUG build because it ramps insanely when you draw right. Watch this:
As far as sideboard goes I'd probably do something like this:
4x Lightning Strike (for match ups against 3-toughness things. Deals with Fleecemane Lion beautifully!), 2x Back to Nature (against the enchantment-heavy decks, i.e. Constellation), 2x Reclamation Sage (great against lighter enchantment decks, gives you a body), 2x Phyrexian Revoker (Planeswalker decks can't touch you!), 4x Mizzium Mortars OR Anger of the Gods (Arguably the best red removal in standard right now), 1x Eidolon of the Great Revel (This can be a helpful little draw against burn decks and decks that really want to race your life total early game.
If I were you, I'd ditch the Goblin Rabblemaster suite, Prophetic Flamespeaker , the Voyaging Satyr s, and the Soul of Zendikar and add more Sylvan Caryatid s and Generator Servant s. Also, Magma Jet is pretty great too. 4x Temple of Abandon is pretty good, although the Evolving Wilds does thin your deck. It depends if you want to scry or remove lands from the deck. Other than that, I love it. Using Generator Servant s and Sylvan Caryatid s and Elvish Mystic s and Xenagos, The Reveler and Courser of Kruphix to cast huge hydras seems epic!!
A nice solid curve would be a good starting point to look for.
Consistency is probably the most mentioned and is the most important key of deckbuilding.
I'd start by getting 4 copies of each of these cards:
These cards are good budget cards that offer early aggression and acceleration (the Mystic and Servant giving you extra mana capabilities). Polukranos, World Eater is a decent chunk, but if you're willing, he's a solid 5/5 that can grow. Polis Crusher is a good alternative.
As for bigger budget cards, get 2 copies each of
as finishers. Zendikar lets you use mana to get more creatures while Shandalar offers removal/burn. The hydra scales up over time and has Haste.
Now, we're getting into even bigger guys. 4 copies of these should bring up the competitive level (and price) a little higher.
Xenagos offers a steady stream of 2/2s each turn and can accelerate your mana. Dragon has evasion and Haste to offer you excellent reach. The protection from white and monstrous ability are just extra benefits.
Stomping Ground is a staple, but is rotating out. If you're interested in solely Standard, don't bother. This card, however, is a valuable land in Modern; if you are looking for a card that will definitely hold value over time, this is a good investment. Temple of Abandon is the dual land you're looking for for Standard.
Hopefully these will give you some ideas and routes on how you want to take the deck.
I don't know how pricing works on that site, so I'll leave it to you. Here's what I'm interested in:
Hey there I would say first thing you would want to do is condense your creatures down to around 10. Getting multiple copies of these 10 or so creatures will give you consistency on what is being put onto the field. With the creatures you have posted some suggestions to keep would be Elvish Mystic Kird Chieftain Borderland Marauder Reclamation Sage Terra Stomper Shivan Dragon
On the more expensive side Temple of Abandon Polukranos, World Eater Xenagos, God of Revels Sylvan Caryatid Genesis Hydra Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Mistcutter Hydra Xenagos, The Reveler Nissa, Worldwaker
Good luck with building your deck!
