I made a deck almost like this, but of course I haven't got to play test it because I can't afford 3 Carnage Tyrant and 3 Ripjaw Raptor haha.

Wanna take a look at it? Give some pointers? Mono Green stomp is always fun!

I like the effort in going for Mono-Green Biggos! If you went 0-2 against Mono Red, then it's an easy fix just adding some green lifegain. Arborback Stomper and Life Goes On are the most enticing options. I would choose Goes On though, as it is the cheaper option.

The list was different when I last went against Mono Red. During such time, I only had 2 Deathgorge Scavenger whereas now I have the full set. I like the idea of maybe 1 or 2 Life Goes On in the board for Mono Red, especially seeing how super popular the deck is right now.

I just went 2-1 at standard showdown with mono green stompy. Only match I lost was on 3rd game mana screw to sultai energy/taker/scarab god thing.

I really had no business winning against the Approach of the Second Sun deck i played in my third match. He dominated me the first game countering everything i played. Second game he somehow ran out of gas before he could find his wincon and couldn't attack or block with his kefnet. Game 3 he was stuck on three mana that didn't allow him to cast Settle the Wreckage. I chalk it up to luck entirely.

The deck I run is a very different from yours but we are trying to achieve the same things. I run 4 Shapers' Sanctuary main since the deck doesn't have a solid one drop. Its been the difference maker in a lot of games. Particularly Energy decks and red decks that target heavily. In matchups like approach its easily sided out. Prowling Serpopard is the only thing that can put me ahead in that matchup honestly... So...many...counterspells.

I ran Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate as my two drops but there were a lot of games when I would end up with the khenra and Rishkar, Peema Renegade as the only creatures in my hand with nothing on the board and it was frustrating when I knew I couldn't get the bonus off one of em. Im thinking of swapping the khenra for Merfolk Branchwalker and was wondering how its played for you?

Hey, thanks for the comment! I can tell you that I originally played Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate but found Merfolk Branchwalker and Drover of the Mighty to be far, far superior. Regarding Prowling Serpopard, I am heavily considering giving it a try in the board, but I've been liking Lifecrafter's Bestiary so much as my anti-control card. Regarding Rishkar, Peema Renegade I originally ran 2 of him and 3-4 Verdurous Gearhulk, but it wasn't as good as going more dino-centric. Lastly, I don't think Shapers' Sanctuary is worth the 1-drop spot, especially going more dino, because Commune with Dinosaurs is just an excellent t1 play.

For sure if you are going the tribal route Commune with Dinosaurs is likely superior. My deck is like the complete flip of yours I started as dino tribal and eventually ended up with non tribal version that features the hasty Crocodile of the Crossing as the primary aggressor.

Funny how different metas can take similar ideas is totally different directions. Another synergy I considered building around was Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Greenbelt Rampager. You can draw quite a few cards off of it pretty early. But since I wasn't running an energy package the rampager didn't do enough.

Keep up the good fight. Ill check back in and let you know how I do at this weeks standard showdown if I make it there. Gonna run branchwalker and see how it goes. Here is the link to my deck at the moment. Good luck out there!
