Panzerforge Ambi-DECK-strous

I'm an artist?

I enjoy finding a card or a few cards that catch my attention, whether it's their art, the mechanic, or a funny synergy.
I then build a deck around that concept.
This sometimes makes decks that aren't all that great, but play with a distinct style.
I have a hard time ever saying that a deck is "done" and I always consider suggestions that are made to me.
I identify most with Boros as a color combination, for several reasons.
More and more this has influenced my deck designs, resulting in decks like Visit Lovely Hanweir!, Divine Affliction, and depalas-demolition-derby.
The concept of controlled fury and defiant courage fits my playstyle well, no matter now much I may try to be Dimir.
Deckbuilding and Story-Telling
For me, most decks are chance to tell a story, or create a certain atmosphere on the table. I prefer finding cohesive art and themes to make my deck look and feel a certain way as they play out. I like my lands to match the set that a majority of the cards are from, or at the very least, enhance the feeling of the creatures in the deck.

This is a perfect example for me of a deck that tells a story.
The entire deck is made of SOI and EMN cards, and illustrates the corruption that ravaged doomed Hanweir.
The deck starts with unaltered humans, innocent artifacts, and slowly but inexorably transforms (literally and figuratively) into a scene of utter horror, with the humans becoming Eldrazi and the township itself becoming something much worse.

One of my brewed decks that just went out of control, it started as a Pauper deck that focused on the Vent Sentinel and some other trickery, but grew too large for Pauper to contain, and is now this very unorthodox, extremely potent deck.

Pauper is the format that a friend used to reintroduce Magic to me, and this is my favorite deck in that format.
It features rampant token-creation, crazy combos, and some of my own hand-painted altered cards, like Tragic Slip.
This is one of those decks that looks great on the table, all the lands are filled with hedrons and Eldrazi art, the creatures form a cohesive line of monstrosities, and it all feels very characterful.

My happy little bundle of horrible rats. The first deck I ever tried to build from scratch was a Pauper Rat Deck.
It was terrible.
I never gave up on the idea of a deck full of rats. So, when I started playing Commander, I couldn't resist the thought of an avalanche of little furry jerks filling the table with sharp teeth, wiry tails, and scampering feet.
It was born as a 40 Rat, 40 Swamp, 20 Supports kind of deck, and has evolved nicely.
This deck has changed the most thanks to the community on TappedOut, and I'd like to thank each and every person that made a suggestion or shared a lesson in Black Magic with me.
The Rats certainly appreciated it.
=SEALED/DRAFT=
ThE BriNK of MaDneSs is my cube based off of the Shadows Over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon block, and is designed for 4 players sealed, or 6 players draft.
I enjoy playing sealed, as every game is always different, but by keeping it within the block this Cube plays very smoothly and the decks are filled with character.

Could I humbly ask for your help ?

Could you please rate my newest deck :Gruul in Ixalan - The Nature's Furyhttp://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/gruul-in-ixalan-the-natures-fury/and give me some advice how to tweak it ?

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you! I always like to have an amusing deck description.
Turbofog WOULD be a problem, and is usually a good answer to a creature based, stomp-happy, aggro deck like this one.
My only hope would be keeping that pressure on and maybe swapping in a little more removal/lifegain from the sideboard.

Perfect hand:
Plains
Sunpetal Grove
Forest
3x Kinjalli's Caller
Carnage Tyrant
T1, Plains + Caller
T2, Sunpetal Grove + 2x Caller
T3, Forest, Tyrant + Maniacal Laugh.
in case you were curious

...to be fair, the earliest I've consistently cast a Carnage Tyrant was T4. It's technically possible to get one on T3 with this deck, but I have not seen it.
T4 7/6 Trample Hexproof is still more than scary anyway.

Coopdeforce, it's funny you ask. I was originally running two of it, figuring it could add a lot with looking for creatures and then massive mana in the late game...
Instead I found it too expensive at CMC 3 for the initial effect, and too conditional to be consistent for the flip-side.
I made a lot of tweaks to keep this running smooth, and the eventual winners have been a package of Ranging Raptors, Ripjaw Raptor, Raging Swordtooth, and Rile. Those 4 cards cause the deck to ramp and thin quickly, and also provide bodies for damage or blocking. (which becomes win-win if they creature block)
It's absurdly fun to get a T1 cost reducer, T2 Ranging Raptors, T3 Ripjaw, and T4 Swordtooth. You walk into T5 ready to Commune and drop a Carnage Tyrant, or stabilize your opponent with Cast Out, then Commune for a T6 Gishath, Sun's Avatar.

Back to the topic, there wasn't really any place in there that Growing Rites could have been cast, or would have helped much. By the time you have enough creatures to flip it, you're already ramped high enough to cast Carnage Tyrant (such a cute little guy) from your hand.
Hope this little rant helps!

Thanks GameFruity! I have been testing it a lot and trying to find the right balance of ramp and stomp.
Adding Rile has actually really made a huge difference. With Ranging Raptors in play for I fetch a land and draw a card, thinning the deck quickly for a better success rate with both Commune with Dinosaurs and Gishath, Sun's Avatar to grab me a Carnage Tyrant.

bomonro Lightning Strike can't destroy a Gearhulk or smash the Heart of Kiran.

I also have enjoyed running a one-of Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. If my big dinos are killed but I still have dorks out, I have been able to play it, snag a dino, and flip it in one turn.

I'm playing a similar deck, and I find Cast Out to be far more versatile over Ixalan's Binding.
Flash stops Planeswalkers and buffing artifacts/enchantments before they hit you, and can instant remove Ixalan's Binding in the mirror match, leaving your dino free to attack.
