These suggestions are made with my previous suggestions in mind, that I assume you liked via your comment upvote.

These are my considerations for your removal... I don't do it often but most of them just dont do much other than offer you the hexproof ability.

Troll Ascetic : problem with regeneration is you gotta hold mana for it. Easy to forget.

Soul of the Rapids : doesn't do much for it's cost.

Sagu Mauler : I mean it's ok... but just doesn't do alot other than have abilities.

Prognostic Sphinx : I see no reason to want to discard cards for optional hexproof. Scry's nice but there are better options for card advantage.

Ascended Lawmage : Again, cost vs stats... it's just not there. One mana less would have changed my mind...

These are just what I can think of... again, with my previous changes in mind.

Heroic Intervention : and similar cards can protect you from board wipes and other spells that don't target.

Steel of the Godhead & Shield of the Oversoul : mostly for the evasion, but the other options are nice too.

Wild Growth and similar cards could be useful if moving towards more of an 'enchantress voltron' style deck.

Curiosity for extra cards, coupled with an evasive creature.

Rancor & Spirit Link keep returning to use again.

Octopus Umbra : great for the evasive creatures. Also for anything that has accrued counters, then it becomes 8/8 + counters and hopefully unblockable... maybe even Ishai.

These are the iffy ones... they could stay, or go. Up to you

Multani, Maro-Sorcerer : other players can control the stats my discarding/casting etc. Sure it could get big but its subjective. Also if we follow a voltron strategy you cant target t either.

Witchstalker : on curve, but unless it's a meta call because U/B is common... but idk.

That's all I got for now, perhaps look into some bant enchantress decks to get some more ideas for enchantment support. I think the hexproof theme is a great idea, it just needs the support of the enchantments to make it shine. Hope it helps some at least.

There are some older primers on G/W beatdown- Its been a solid teir 2.5 deck for a long while. Think there were budget 'little kid' G/W lists floating around intended to be an introduction to the format, and more recently there are devastating midrange/combo hybrids, as well as the infamous troll worship.

Take a look at sideboards to support it and It'll compete for FNMs in all but the most cutthroat metas.

Bant Sureblade/Naya Hushblade is traditional in new alara lists.

You can run an older hatebear style list built around Gaddock Teeg, and he's a devastating sideboard option in many matchups, even if he is substantially less format warping that in the past.

With the meta-move to use Kitchen Finks and the like for combo, its worth considering Solemnity or Worship/Troll Ascetic interactions.

Additionally, Glittering Wish/Congregation at Dawn is in these colours.

In terms of more recent cards its things like Renegade Rallier, Emmara, Soul of the Accord, Knight of Autumn and Oath of Ajani, although each points to different strategies and support cards.

I'd steer clear of Wayfaring Temple, Unflinching Courage and Mercy Killing- while they sound good in theory they play very poorly.

Since you seem to be going full combo, I'd run the full 4x Idyllic Tutors. Idyllic Tutor lets you run 1 copy of certain enchantments, yet still get them on the board reliably. You clearly have too many cards in the deck, so that's something you'll want to consider while cutting down to 60.

That being said, I wouldn't run more than 2 of any of your combo pieces. -2-3x Phyrexian Unlife, -2-3x Solemnity, -3x Worship.

Leyline of Sanctity is a sideboard card. I'd remove all 4 from the main deck and add them to the side board.

What's Troll Ascetic doing for you? Just a hard to remove creature for Worship? Probably not worth running any tbh. Speaking of creatures, I'd drop -2x Courser of Kruphix and -2-4x Herald of the Pantheon. Herald seems good, but Arbor Elf+Utopia Sprawl is such a good mana engine, he just isn't necessary. I'd also consider adding in 2x Mesa Enchantress to ensure you get your draw as consistently as possible.

Since you're running 4x Idyllic Tutors, you only need 1x of each of your win-cons. -1x Starfield of Nyx, +1x Luminarch Ascension. I'd also consider a single Authority of the Consuls, as it can help against aggro and the passive life gain can help quite a bit. Good tool to have available for tutoring. 1x Heliod, God of the Sun is a pretty solid win-con, as it's ability can help you fill your hand while giving blockers/attackers. She comes online as a creature quite reliably in this type of deck as well.

JA14732 on Curses are Fun for Everyone!!!

minionmasher, depends on what you mean.

When an aura enters the battlefield, it enters enchanting a legal permanent of your choice; otherwise, auras would just be sacrificed on ETB (i.e. getting back Pacifism with Starfield of Nyx allows you to slap Pacifism on any dude). Of note, this gets around targeting restrictions, as auras ONLY target on the stack, so using the above trick allows you to Pacify a Troll Ascetic. If you want more clarification, I'd recommend reading up on the rulings for Starfield of Nyx. That'll explain it for you, or epoch wrote up an explanation in the Rules Q&A a few years back that is the first result on google when searching "starfield of nyx and pacifism."

So, if you think curses are put on you, that is not correct; they are put on a player of your choice who does not currently have protection from the color of that aura. Does that make sense?

Some cheap cards I can think of off the top of my head that might be worth getting for this deck would be Arcanum Wings, Wild Defiance, Mask of Avacyn, Jhessian Infiltrator, Troll Ascetic and of course Slippery Bogle. Sigil of Sleep also pairs well with Invisible Stalker.

unfortunately, the most popular removal spell in modern is Path to Exile. you're better off using a hexproof creature with regenerate like Troll Ascetic or Thrun, the Last Troll

Troll Ascetic OUT, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes IN. This deck is battling with card advntage sometimes.

You could have more success with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Collected Company, and scaled 3 mana green creatures as a green aggro deck. You could still use the dryads that way as early game damage but with those added cards you could have the steam to end games before turn 6 or 7. In the world of modern it would still be relatively budget friendly too. The fetchlands you have in the deck cost more collectively than those suggestions. Leatherback Baloth, Silhana Ledgewalker, Troll Ascetic, and Sacred Wolf in a collected company deck with Old-Growth Dryads, Predator's Strike, Predator Ooze, Vines of Vastwood, and Rancor would be a very intense aggro deck.

Just a thought, but the added power and hexproof would really boost the potency.
