Clan Defiance Discussion

Looks like you can choose zero modes. If you had to choose at least one, it would say "choose one or more" like Clan Defiance .

Lord Windgrace is super fun. Here is my version if you would like some ideas- https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tectonic-shift-3/?cat=type&sort= Feel free to ask any questions if you have em.
As for your build here are a few ideas for you (Not sure your budget so I'll just throw a variety out there)
Add Amulet of Vigor you have a lot of lands that come in tapped and the amulet will allow them to come in untapped. Plus if you have Azusa, Lost but Seeking (Another suggestion) or any other "play additional land" effect out, you can play a bounce land, tap it to float the mana, bounce it to your hand and replay it to tap it again. When I still ran bounce lands I had 8 free floating mana one game just because of this synergy.
Instead of Clan Defiance maybe Blasphemous Act . It will be a lot cheaper to cast and is a guaranteed board wipe (minus Indestructible and a few Eldrazi/gigantic creatures) you lose the dmg to target player sure but it allows you to board wipe for 1 mana.
Add more green mana producers. Your deck is mainly green, yet your mana distribution is fairly even. This could lead to a lot of games being color screwed. I could be wrong since I have not played the deck, but just looking at the CMC and mana production it looks like color fixing would be a problem more often than not.
Courser of Kruphix will gain you life when you play lands.
Thespian's Stage & Dark Depths is an amazing little combo for Windgrace since you can crack stage to become a copy of depths which immediately triggers depths ability giving you a 20/20 flying indestructible creature. And then you just replay those 2 lands from the graveyard to have them ready from when your 20/20 gets pathed to do it all over again.
I do not run this combo yet because I have been to lazy to order one of the cards but Murderous Redcap + Melira, Sylvok Outcast + sac outlet will give you a wincon to machine gun the table (If you want a combo wincon)
Also Bolas's Citadel is just a great card in the deck. It allows you to freely play cards and look at the top card of your library at any time. It also gives you another wincon witn Sensei's Divining Top and Aetherflux Reservoir
You could also cut your artifact mana ramp. I only run Sol Ring and have found that is enough. You will be playing a lot of lands so you should not really need the ramp like a normal deck would. Might want to look into Expedition Map to go fetch any specific land you might need, as well as Search for Tomorrow , it is a one green suspend land fetch.
That is all I can really think of right now. You have a good base of what Windgrace needs/wants so I just wanted to offer some options to help optimize/streamline it a bit. Hope these helped.

You can consider adding in a mass reanimation card like Patriarch's Bidding or Living Death as a secondary wincon with Scourge of Valkas / Dragon Tempest . Alternatively, you can put in a Banefire and/or Clan Defiance for an end-game finisher.

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons
Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough
Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons
Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost
Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better
Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior
Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive
Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.
Tenacious Dead - Just bad
Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive
Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.
Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts
Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.
Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost
Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan
Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.
Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?
Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough
Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough
