You're probably going to find more reduced-cost creatures, then, and you got a lot of the best ones. How about Ghoultree , Ancient Stone Idol , Tazri, Beacon of Unity , Marshmist Titan , or Khalni Hydra ? (I'd like to see the deck that runs both of the last two.)

I agree with TheVectornaut about a Defenders or Toughness Matters hub. WotC seems to like printing Assault Formation , Arcades, the Strategist , and High Alert , so Defenders is a good choice (though I wouldn’t call it Walls because not all defenders are walls). But I’ve also seen a lot of Toughness Matters with Doran, the Siege Tower , Belligerent Brontodon , and Huatli, the Sun's Heart .
I’m here to throw out Chroma/Devotion. Even before Theros Beyond Death, there’s been a lot of modern decks using Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Green likes to print cards like Khalni Hydra , Primalcrux , and Llanowar Tribe , but there’s plenty of devotion with other colors, too.
Anyway, thanks for reading!

Well green is already the best at drawing cards, killing things, having pseudo counter spells, winning quickly and +1/+1 counters, why not have a storm deck as well

But seriously, love the deck, I know you may be sticking to a budget but have you considered Khalni Hydra in this deck it is very likely to be an 8/8 that cost 0-2 also look at that mana cost, it's so cool

Any room for Leatherback Baloth or Khalni Hydra? Nice deck! +1

This looks really fun! I had a deck that was somewhat similar.

With all those green pips, would Aspect of Hydra be something you would consider? I had a lot of success with it in my own deck :)

I also had a couple Khalni Hydras that I would usually only have to pay 3-4 Mana for. It could be fun in this build too - though, your deck might be too fast to need it?

Here are my thoughts.

  1. You need a few more lands. Aggro decks need to reliably cast their spells quickly to overwhelm their opponents. I would suggest cutting the Khalni Hydra's and a Ghalta, Primal Hunger or 2 in favor of lands.

  2. Have you consider Gaea's Anthem?

  3. Why not 4 of the Steel Leaf Champion and 2 of the Leatherback Baloth? They both have the same level of toughness for moderns general removal options, so why not have the extra point of power and chance of being unblocked.

  4. You only have 4 permanent types in your deck and will hardly ever get the delerium for Gnarlwood Dryad. Maybe throw a couple fetch lands or cycling lands to help with that.

Thomasgh13 Thanks for the suggestions! I decided to run Naturalize for the art, but I'll probably swap it for RTN soon. I might consider Aspect of Hydra, maybe over Forced Adaptation or something. As for Khalni Hydra, as much as I really would love it, it's too expensive for my taste.

Overwhelming Stampede great damage and trample gain. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx great devotion mana ramp. Craterhoof Behemoth another great damage and trample gain. The Ozolith to keep all your counters. I would move Force of Vigor, Natural State to sideboard. I would remove 2 Castle Garenbrig and all the Llanowar Reborn for regular Forest and 2Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I would also remove the 4 Managorger Hydra for 4 Khalni Hydra. Move the artifacts to side. I would also recomend putting in some Primalcrux but i wouldnt suggest straying away from the creature type past that,
