My first experience in magic was playing in elementary school with my friends, using the original set of Vanguard cards. I played on and off through middle school.

I started playing again (with a much better understanding of the game) in 2008, mostly social/casual formats like EDH. Within the last few years I've started dabbling in Modern and more recently Legacy. I like brewing decks with weird themes and experimenting with fun mechanics. I tend to be more interested in the experience than just winning, although winning is nice too.

Feel free to check out my Commander decks here.

Also, I like squirrels.

Definitely looking at the Marauder, but agree with Wiggyman, one time life gain like Viridian Harvest probably won't make the cut. Lots of edits still being worked on.

I like the basic structure of the deck. The main thing I'm noticing as a negative is that there are a lot of cards that don't contribute much later in the game, and there isn't a lot of card draw.

One of the downsides of a lot of the Exalted creatures is that many of them (like Akrasan Squire) don't add anything except another Exalted trigger. I would consider removing some of them, focusing on the ones with evasion or enough bulk to survive.

Armadillo Cloak is a great enchantment to stack with the Lifelink subtheme you seem to have going. The oracle text means it stacks with Lifelink, so it might be better than Unflinching Courage.

Rampant Growth is a single use and doesn't ramp you very much. Sword of the Animist might get you more bang for your buck.

The new card, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, seems like it would be a perfect fit for your deck, possibly replacing or in addition to Dueling Grounds. Crawlspace is another similar option.

Congregation at Dawn doesn't seem like a great option with the lack of card draw.

Off hand, something like Drogskol Reaver might be a good option with your lifelink cards. Azorius Cluestone, Selesnya Cluestone, and Simic Cluestone might be better options than their Signet counterparts, as another source of card draw. Cards like Bident of Thassa and Edric, Spymaster of Trest would grant additional draws with double-strike.

Hope these suggestions help! +1 to your deck from me.
