Very true, though after doing a little testing, Ancient Animus seems to be that card that I would either put into sideboard or not put in at all. I was thinking that placing three of Nature's Way into sideboard instead would be wise and worth a shot, and into a mainboard we can put Territorial Allosaurus making this deck a little more creature intensive. Let me know what you think about that, since my way of thinking is that Rhonas the Indomitable and Rhonas's Monument is enough of trample.

For the other remarks, I have 3 Thrashing Brontodon in the sideboard, I might be able to move them mainboard, but that would mean they would take a spot of Steel Leaf Champion (which is very bad) or Rhonas's Monument (which is more tolerable). I want to do more testing against current top decks to see how this turns out when its sideboarded.

I hate for some reason how Merfolk Branchwalker comes out in this deck. I am afraid to put Drover of the Mighty since if it is put in the mainboard I will have it constantly out on turn 2 and, thus, if opponent goes first (and most probably plays red) will land Goblin Chainwhirler and wipe my Drover of the Mighty. It is not that sad if they wipe my Llanowar Elves since I will have my Steel Leaf Champion on turn two before the Red Beast can come in. Yet I need replacement for Merfolk Branchwalker and since I dropped 3 Ancient Animus and put in only 2 Territorial Allosaurus, I will 4 spots open in the 2 drop spot.

Either way I will post my updates now and I will be grateful to hear your feedback.

Best, A.

For the two drop you may want to consider Elfhame Druid as it still serves to ramp green for you, and can help with the kicker of Territorial Allosaurus. I would suggest making some room for Ripjaw Raptor somewhere (even if its just in the SB to swap out Allosaurus) because this deck will let you drop him early, he is a big blocker against agro, and can give you cards quickly. Territorial Allosaurus can be good but I often find people hold it in hand to try and kick it, and that leads to slowing yourself down and falling behind

Good Point! And point taken. Already updated. Thanks. Any further suggestions are welcome. That Aggressive Mammoth has resolved all my issues with trample.
