Nylea, God of the Hunt
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to green is less than five, Nylea isn't a creature. ( in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to green.)
Other creatures you control have trample.

Nylea, God of the Hunt Discussion
3 weeks ago
I'll include some recommendations if you're interested:
Tokens: Thinking along the lines of MOAR TOKENS, Second Harvest and Rhys the Redeemed . You could also consider Call the Coppercoats , Deploy to the Front , and Nomads' Assembly . Awakening Zone , Giant Adephage is fun.
Trample: I'd recommend Nylea, God of the Hunt if you're willing to shell out the extra bit.
Protection: Fanatical Devotion

Aside from the power 9 and the original dual lands, Gaea's Cradle is probably the most high-demand card on the reserve list. Years ago, I almost bought one at $80 for a token deck but backed out because it didn't seem worth it and now it's just absurdly expensive. Even non-reserve list cards are really expensive at the moment. Wizards has done a very poor job of keeping supply in line with demand. I bought my playset of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for $11 during Theros, but now it would cost $120.
Bellyaching aside, let's talk about gods. Nylea, God of the Hunt is best used as a mana sink for when you have excess in the late game. The only creatures you currently have that make really good use of her trample ability are Scute Mob and Heroes' Bane , and End-Raze Forerunners might make it redundant if that's a card you want to top out at. If you do include Omnath, Locus of Mana , old Nylea would be a great partner for him. As for Nylea, Keen-Eyed , I'd usually prefer the cheaper Duskwatch Recruiter Flip unless sending stuff to the yard or keeping it on top is of vital importance. Even though Rhonas the Indomitable looks just like the first Nylea, many small differences compound into making him a much stronger card. He costs 1 less, his activated ability costs 1 less, his combat requirement is easier to meet, and he has that excellent deathtouch/indestructible pairing. The card is honestly pretty bananas and would fit very well in your deck if you can afford it. God-Eternal Rhonas is more niche. He also serves a very similar role to Forerunners as a means of finishing the game. I'd normally choose the 5-cost option over the 7-cost one, but the creatures you can currently develop before dropping Rhonas on 5 have relatively low power. Turning a bunch of 1/2s into 2/2s just isn't that impactful, so I'd add new Rhonas only if he had bigger creatures to buff. Finally, Bow of Nylea is a very nice and surprisingly flexible tool for a deathtouch deck. If you could get ~3 copies, you could drop some of the existing DT creatures like Wasteland Viper and Deadly Recluse , add in more Fynn, the Fangbearer , and shift to a very aggressive line of play. Otherwise, I think a singleton copy would be totally fine.
In my suggestions for ramp options, I was basically just using Cultivate as a stand-in for all the 3 CMC 2 land search spells like it. Nissa's Pilgrimage is objectively better in a forest-only deck, although the odds of you having Spell Mastery in the early game with only 5 instants/sorceries in the deck (3 of which are situational) is essentially zero. I also listed Harrow specifically since I've had the most success with it out of all the Cultivate effects save for Harvest Season in token-heavy decks. Being able to immediately convert the untapped lands into a Rampant Growth or any 2-drop creature makes for incredible tempo, and the instant speed is great for bluffing. Seeing a counterspell after the land sac is brutal though so I do understand the hesitation. If that's your biggest worry, I'd also keep an eye out for Allosaurus Shepherd (high budget), Veil of Summer (mid budget), and Autumn's Veil (low budget) as options for the sideboard.

Some cards to consider:
Those cards range from what I consider to be auto-includes to somewhat pet cards in no particular order and are pulled from an older deck list that I haven't updated in some time.I would be happy to discuss what makes them strong or what cuts to make to fit them in of you have any questions.

A +1/+1 counter version would work very well with this as the big problem is you are only getting 1 use out of your creature and aura enhancers.
Save your board with: Stonehoof Chieftain , Heroic Intervention , Inspiring Call , Kamahl’s Will , Mortal's Resolve , Timber Protector , Outmuscle , Song of Freyalise , Nissa, Who Shakes the World , Vivien Reid , Withstand Death
Indestructible creatures for ya: Bellowing Elk , Icehide Troll , Impervious Greatwurm , Myojin of Life's Web , Nylea, God of the Hunt , Rhonas the Indomitable , Predator Ooze , Thornling , Wily Bandar , Majestic Myriarch

Might add Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded and when you world tree all your God's will have haste, which in combination with Nylea, God of the Hunt and God-Eternal Rhonas will make all your gods hit for double their power with trample. This would be in addition to the damage Purphoros, God of the Forge will do. This will also help for the scenario where you have one or the other in your hand. Would hate to be able to use worldtree but the Purphoros is in your hand.

Hey, I ran a deck like this in standard, so a couple of things: 1) Walking Ballista is banned in pioneer, not sure why the site didn't flag your deck and
3) I used to run Setessan Tactics as my board wipe as getting the extra green to strive each time was not a hard thing to do at all, most of the time my entire board fights your board. I also ran Soul of New Phyrexia . I didn't have blue but was about to add it and put in Kruphix, God of Horizons . I had Nylea, God of the Hunt and Hydra Broodmaster . That guy was insane. I also used Karametra's Acolyte . Can't recall what else I had as this was years ago and I don't have the list. They added a ton of cards since then and Pioneer has a large card pool anyway. Good Luck
