Timberland Guide Discussion

I like this deck a lot. Only thing is your "feature card" could maybe be more on-flavor with something like Huntmaster of the Fells Flip (which as I am typing this I am just now realizing is in your maybeboard) or Grim Flayer. The only other thing is this deck is kind-of rare heavy compared to The African Wilds so maybe you drop a playset of Silumgar Assassins for Timberland Guides or Ruthless Rippers.
Lastly, duel decks tend to have some loosely strategy to them whether it is weenies, graveyard tactics, or counters. Idk how well you can work synergy in while keeping on-flavor but its just something to keep in mind.

Depending on how you want to approach the deck and how much you want to polish a lot can be done to improve your deck. The biggest thing regardless of how competitive you want to take it is taking out cards that don't do anything but look good because they are efficient in standard or something. For instanceFaithbearer Paladin being played on turn 5 when everyone else is setting up a combo or cheating much bigger creatures into play looks pretty meek compared to them. Find cards that immediately seem to create an effect or such a strong effect it's worth it.
Cards I would take out...
Veteran Armorer, Timberland Guide, Primal Druid, Obsessive Skinner, Nightguard Patrol, Kessig Recluse, Intrepid Provisioner, Inspiring Captain, Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Elder Cathar, Byway Courier, Ironwright's Cleansing, Equestrian Skill, Conclave's Blessing, Pollenbright Wings, Fists of Ironwood, True-Faith Censer, Crown of Convergence, Briarbridge Patrol, Grapple with the Past, Leave No Trace, Long Road Home, Wildsize. A lot of cards I know but here come some budget or more expensive replacements...
Expensive options(see if your playgroup is cool with proxies if money is an issue)
Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Containment Priest, Recruiter of the Guard, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Mirari's Wake, Sylvan Library, Earthcraft, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Knight of the Reliquary, Aura Shards, Hero of Bladehold.
Cheap alternatives(though some may be annoying to find from others or stores)
Bruna, the Fading Light, , Mentor of the Meek, Silverblade Paladin, Somberwald Sage, Thalia's Lancers, Swords to Plowshares, Day of Judgment, Werebear, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Mother of Runes, Riders of Gavony, Honor of the Pure, Intangible VirtueFiend Hunter, Goldnight Commander, , Knight of the White Orchid, Aegis of the Gods, Archetype of Courage, Deranged Outcast, Return to Dust, Angel of Jubilation, Tireless Tracker, Bastion Protector, Sun Titan.
Anyways my gawd what a long message hopefully this helps later!

You might want to replace Timberland Guide with Bond Beetle, basically the same thing for one less mana. Hunger of the Howlpack would be a good alternative to Battlegrowth, since you can get three counters for one green with the morbid effect. Also, Prey's Vengeance works really well with the Managorger because you get two triggers for one green. Since you're going for lots of counters, I'd also suggest Solidarity of Heroes.
