Ghalta, Primal Hunger Discussion

Questing Beast is a new Throne of Eldraine card that is bound to become a staple in mono-green and should be included in mainboard.
Veil of Summer could be put in sideboard depending on your local meta.
Fetches are good for thinning the deck lowering the odds of drawing lands later on.
For those reading the comments that whant some budget options Gaea's Revenge could come in instead of Carnage Tyrant and Castle Garenbrig instead of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Altough the castle could be added as a one or two off to the current manabase replacing forests.

Easy switch outs to me:
Acidic Slime - you have plenty of destroy enchantment or artifact things.
Verdant Force - meh with what you're doing
Turntimber Sower - also kinda meh
Baloth Woodcrasher - no trample, would be chumped all day long
Seer's Sundial - you should be ramping enough that this is irrelevant to you - green and black are excellent ramping colors save this for the red or colorless deck you're going to build in commander.
Second Harvest - too situational
Deathreap Ritual - seems very situational
Zendikar Incarnate - can grow fast, no trample or other evasion
Scute Mob - dangerously fast growing - no trample or other evasion
Crop Rotation - search for a land card, put on battlefield
Sylvan Scrying - search for a land card, put in hand
Reap and Sow - destroy target land and or search for a land
Tempt with Discovery - search for a land and for as many lands as opponents search for

This deck has no answers to flyers or control, and despite having a mostly low curve it's going to take too long to build up to effectively answer to aggro and stompy decks. Also, you're going too wide with cards. Try to focus on getting playsets of your most effective cards (in my opinion Gyre Sage , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Barkhide Troll , Renegade Krasis , Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Animation Module , and Avatar of the Resolute against flyers), and try using Rabid Bite for effective removal. You'll want to just attack with Ghalta, Primal Hunger , there are few games a 12/12 trample can't figure out. If you have space 4 Power Conduit 's can also make blockers way easier to deal with, basically being reusable combat tricks.

For those who don't know the combo.
Turn 1 land neonate pass.
Turn 2 land or exile Simian spirit guide, sac neonate discard Griselbrand , reanimate with goryo.
Pay 7 draw 7. Pay 7 draw 7. Cast Nourishing Shoal exiling Ghalta, Primal Hunger . Keep paying 7 until u have enough Simian Spirit Guide and Desperate Ritual in hand to cast Through the Breach or a discard outlet and Manamorphose to get black mana for another goryos, reanimating Borborygmos Enraged .
Discard all lands in hand, win.

Hey, fine start, lots of good cards here, but I think you can make much better use of $600 budget. Infect isn't working here and you get it. Three infect creatures is not worth adding additional cards that have interaction with infect. My advice is focus more on Dinos and what makes Dinos good which is enrage.
Cards to consider adding:
- Regal Behemoth : mana doubler and repeatable draw, errata to Dinosaur
- Zacama, Primal Calamity
- Ghalta, Primal Hunger
- Trapjaw Tyrant : repeatable exile, enrage.
- Atla Palani, Nest Tender : backup plan to cheat Dinos from your library onto the battlefield.
- Elvish Piper : backup plan to cheat Dinos from your hand onto the battlefield.
- Walking Ballista : repeatable enrage enabler.
- Pyrohemia : repeatable enrage enabler.
- Wayward Swordtooth
- Marauding Raptor : enrage enabler.
- Ripjaw Raptor : repeatable draw, enrage.
- Runic Armasaur : repeatable draw.
- Greater Good : repeatable draw and a sac outlet.
- Garruk, Primal Hunter : can be repeatable draw.
- Natural Order : turn any green creature into Regal, Zacama or Ghalta, etc.
- Eladamri's Call
- Gamble : another tutor for Mirari's Wake or Smothering Tithe , etc.
- Nature's Lore : upgrade for Kodama's Reach .
- Skyshroud Claim : upgrade for Explosive Vegetation .
Atla and Piper can be backup plans to cheat Dinos onto the battlefield without Gishath. Atla's Eggs can benefit from enrage enablers because they're 0/1 creatures making these enablers also sac outlets. Enrage is an ability that makes Dinos unique and it can be powerful in multiplayer Commander when it can be repeatedly triggered.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Blight Mamba
- Glistener Elf
- Phyrexian Hydra
- Viridian Corrupter
- Giant Growth
- Contagion Clasp
- Contagion Engine
- Sword of Truth and Justice
- Sword of the Animist
- Whispersilk Cloak
- Kinjalli's Caller
- Huatli's Raptor
- Evolution Sage
- Commander's Sphere
- Kodama's Reach
- Explosive Vegetation

Ah yes, fellow Xenagos player (you can see my deck here Xenagos). Your deck isn't bad but you do have a couple things you could change. You have a good bit of smaller creatures (P/T wise). Xenagos likes to have big creatures and things like Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Atarka, World Render . Also, I play Elemental Bond over Kavu Lair, as it only affects me and it only needs 3 power. Instead of running Fires, you could run Rhythm of the Wild as it also has "Creatures you control can't be countered". You can also add in more extra combat turn cards as Xenagos' triggers do stack (I've swung with a 24/24 Atarka that one hit killed a person with 48 damage). Overall, your decks isn't bad though
