Nayxz - Was that comment... aimed at me? or did someone delete their comment?

Neat. It needs some cheaper or turn 1-2 creatures though. I'd try to swap in some of these:
- Young Wolf
- Cabal Therapist (Sacrifice outlet)
- Changeling Outcast (Unblockable "wolf")
- Beastcaller Savant (Mana ramp)
- Crashing Drawbridge (Haste)
Plus maybe some of these kind of effects to bump up the danger:

Through all of this, cutting the curve will be best achieved by increasing draw power, so that you still see your key cards reliably while having less wasted mana/time in early turns. Dusk urchins is an amazing build-around for this, as is scarscale- I'd look at reliably casting the two of them, then running any of the dozen variants of 1 mana card filtering in green in place of beseech, running just one canker, one soul snuffers and only two archers to make space. That means a 1 drop which likes getting a -1-1 on it for scarscale if you want to reliably beat down, or a manadork to power out urchins t2 if you want a more value or combo-based list.

The Great Henge is great for this deck. On its own since it draws you lots of cards and ramps you. But with a sac outlet and a persist creature it can go infinite, draw your deck, and find your win con the same turn.
Also the deck seems removal light. Caustic Caterpillar is a good include since its a creature that can be recurred, triggered at instant speed, and found with your creature tutors in a pinch. Cavalier of Night is another strong card for removal on a stick and then gets you a utility creature back when it dies.
Out of the card's I'd cut: Bloodspore Thrinax and Ivy Lane Denizen are easy cuts as Henge is better than both and you already have many better counter enablers. Cryptolith Rite is too slow due to summoning sickness and it usually doesn't work with a combo turn. Deathspore Thallid as Yawg is better. Altar of Dementia is just a dead draw unless you are comboing off. Where your other outlets at least give you value.

Any love for Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit ? nonbo with geralfs, amazing for the rest.
Altar and feeder's payoffs mean you aren't as reliant on an etb like madcap, so Lesser Masticore / Putrid Goblin / Safehold Elite are options. Another interesting option is Melira, Sylvok Outcast , and in green Young Wolf offers a t1 creature to combo with.

Note that bringing Young Wolf back with persist will have it immediately die to state based actions for having 0 toughness, and will come back with undying right after. There’s no time of Young Wolf being on the battlefield as a 0/0 where you could sac it to your altar or interact with it

So, I play a Alot Of Ghave. And as far as card draw goes, I suggest Dark Confidant , Generous Patron and another combo draw like Grim Haruspex or Generous Patron . Even Tymna the Weaver is about the best Phyrexian arena effect at 3cmc. Also, you're missing Young Wolf and Strangleroot Geist . Undying combos hard with Ghave and these should really be included. As far as speed goes, Doubling Season and primal vigor aren't that fast anymore. Cedh is a turn 3 format now, so your aim should be close to winning, being relevant or stopping faster decks by turn 3. And I don't see this deck doing that. I'd also go a Protean Hulk package since you're already running some of the pieces and that'll basically turn this list into a turn 3 deck. Even turn 2 with the right hand.

Oh, and sacrificing the Young Wolf again between the two triggers won't do anything useful, again due to the wolf being a new object with no memory of its previous existence.
