Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated!
Balaam__ do you have any suggestions in terms of ramp cards that could be added? The good ones that i now of are unfortunately not legal in modern...
wallisface yeah, testing the deck I saw that te first few turns I had nothing that could be done. I was thinking about replacing Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge and Helm of the Host in favor of something that costs less to play.
jdogz32 that combo looks indeed very interesting. I personally prefer maintaining the deck mono red, but I'll think about your suggestion, maybe adding other green cards like Elvish Piper to cheat bigger dragons into play. I'll defenetly add the Shivan Devastator, looks really cool!

sean360 Thank you for commenting.
As described, the deck funktions pretty darn well without Prophet of Kruphix, since it’s only value is to untap and activate the abilities (Kenessos or the cheat-effects). I don’t remember hardcasting any of the fattiest yet with her ability yet. Would be an easy swap :D
Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet are just for redundancy. Since it cannot be avoided to draw one of these, i must have an opportunity to cheat them in. Piper is not that mana-intense, but slow… Amulett can be activated, when it hits, which is only good, when i have said untappes (Prophet/Seedborn).
Training Grounds is on my extended want list, but not in my budget currently :D
I would appreciate an up, if you like it. I will check yours, maybe get some inspiration.

Quicksilver Amulet, Elvish Piper, Monster Manual, Sol Ring, Lurking Predators, Sneak Attack etc come to mind. Also, i'd add 8-9 lands. 37-38 seems appropriate for this deck. If they don't lack flavour the usual supects like Birds of Paradise, maybe Exploration or the other one. Mayael the Anima

Personally, I think Quest for Ula's Temple is a total trap. It only gets a counter roughly 1/3 of turns. They payoff is nice, but not as nice as in a 60-card format where the payoff is proportionally larger and it's easier to have a deck be 2/3 creatures and get the counters up faster.

Semester's End could be some good board wipe evasion in a pinch, and sets you up to come back swinging.
If you're looking to run big creatures and cheat them in, you can do a bit better than Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy. Defense of the Heart is low-key broken. Some other useful cards: Elvish Piper, Quicksilver Amulet, Lurking Predators. Depending on your average creature CMC, you could just run all of them and call it a day.
Kinnan does have the advantage of being instant speed and repeatable, but it's easier and cheaper (mana wise) to setup draw alongside play-from-hand effects than it is to put mana into that activated ability. I think it's just a bit too much of a slot investment to build into Kinnan as not-commander.
Boon of Safety with Atraxa is pretty useful, or Contractual Safeguard can do the same thing for all your creatures for just 2 additional mana. I'd probably prefer the latter if I had to choose, but both are good.

Finn_Fillory - I think the edits you made since this morning (for me at least) already make the deck significantly stronger. You dropped the average CMC from ~3.5 to 2.7, which will speed up the deck noticeably and it will feel more consistent. Especially if you are lucky enough to start with Utopia Sprawl in your opening hand...
wallisface always gives top notch advice and he is right about Howlpack Piper Flip not being a great card for this specific deck. You might notice this card looks very similar to Elvish Piper and I have seen decks effectively use Elvish Piper or similar creature cheat antics effectively, but it is not a great strategy for this deck. That is something you build around specifically.
I personally love Collected Company to cheat stuff out and add some creature pressure but with 6 creatures with a CMC > 3, you would wiff often with that. Building a deck is always up to the architect but if it were me, I would find a way to drop 3xAvabruck Caretaker Flip and 3xNightpack Ambusher for similar wolves/werewolves and add in a full playset of Collected Company. I think wallisface turned me onto Collected Company I while back for my tribal knight deck and I try to find a way to squeeze it in to everything since!!!
