Trying something new for ramp with a set of Axebane Guardian s. Probably won't stay in as they are not exactly aggressive: But it's worth a shot.
If you're going to have wild defiance in here you need more instants and sorceries to target your creatures otherwise it takes up 3 extra spots for better stuff. perhaps ramp up to craterhoof behemoth? Thragtusk, Predator Ooze, Soul of the Harvest, Somberwald Sage, Vorapede.
Wild Defiance is a do nothing in this deck.
Besides, why make rotation proof decks when new cards will most likely make it useless.
MagnaLynx21: Why, you ask? Well, as stated, I've made the deck with what I have. The reason I've not included the cards you mentioned is because I don't have them. Aside from that, they're definitely good suggestions, and cards I will look for when trading. I'm considering putting more instants and sorceries in there to make Wild Defiance more relevant, though I still think defiance has relevance with less spells given the fact that it essentially counters Searing Spear -type spells. But it's possible that I could cut one, and perhaps a few of the vipers.
Check out my post cycle deck that I'm working on, deck:green-with-pure-envy. That should give you some inspiration. But unfortunately I agree with the majority of the people that have commented on your deck. Where's Rancor , Predator Ooze and Ulvenwald Tracker ? Where's Champion of Lambholt ?
bxromeo8586: Yes, I hear you - all of you - and I note and appreciate your suggestions and feedback. However, as I've stated both in the description and in a comment further up, I've made the deck with what I currently have - not what would be optimal for the deck if I had access to all the cards in the standard format. And I will continue updating it as I acquire new cards, like today when I added a second Garruk that I opened in a booster I won while drafting.
Im also making a new green standard deck, and I like most of the choices. I'm not sure about some of your one-of choices, but I like the idea. I would say you need more somberwald sages if your going to ramp, and more thragtusk for life and power.
