Creature — Elf Warrior
Whenever another creature you control enters the battlefield or dies, if that creature's power is greater than Pelt Collector's, put a +1/+1 counter on Pelt Collector.
As long as Pelt Collector has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, it has trample.

Had some games today - felt terrible, i think the deck is losing his focus A LOT.
At this point i basically removed all the white creatures in favour of Portable Hole and 2 Gavony Township - i also DEFINITELY like Lifecrafter's Bestiary as both a passive scry every turn and the now and then draw: i think i need to go back to the origins and concentrate on green creatures more - even with 8 double lands i often find myself without the right mana to cast creatures, the first few turns: especially with training, not having more than the lonely initiate down, because i'm missing the 2 green to cast, is just pain. Might have to find space to put back the Pelt Collector Will have to decide eventually, but the deck felt smoother a few iterations ago, and definitely without the white creatures in (i literally have NEVER been able to train the Savior of Ollenbock ONCE in however many games - i managed to use the initiate ability today more than once for the first time - and he trained once). I feel like training, apart from being slow in general, is also too dangerous with the amount of deathtouch stuff i'm dealing with, and having the creature die to a 1/1 dt or stay a 1/2 forever because that's my main way of pumping him up just doesn't work.
I'll update the deck with the latest revision tomorrow, so you can lmk what you think!
p.s. i have the Luminarch Aspirant, i might try him around eventually!

JordoSmith14 I've done some brewing, and this is personally what i'd suggest trying as a +1/+1 counter GW decklist. I tried keeping it as "selesnya-feeling" as possible without sacrificing power.

So i’m a bit confused with the direction you’re trying to take here - it feels like you’re making 3 separate decks and trying to munge them together, with elements of ramp, +1 counters, and stompy. I think you need to pick a path and stick to it without deviation.
For a +1 counter deck, i’d expect to see stuff like Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Avatar of the Resolute, Grateful Apparition, Conclave Mentor, Dromoka's Command, and possibly 1-2 Verdurous Gearhulk as the decks ceiling.
For a stompy deck, i’d expect Aspect of Hydra, alongside Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Avatar of the Resolute, Steel Leaf Champion, Strangleroot Geist, Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, Vines of Vastwood, Rancor. Note this deck usually has no reason to splash a second colour.
for ramp, your cards should only ever be doing one of two things: either ramping you more mana (i.e Arboreal Grazer, Explore etc), or almost-immediately winning you the game (i.e Primeval Titan, Tooth and Nail, etc). Note these kinds of decks will often run 28-32 lands in their 60-cards.
So, my big suggestion is, to pick a clear path, and then stick to it

Hardened Scales alongside constrictor is an incredible engine, with corpesjack menace as a powerful endgame.
The problem with making a list built around them better is that too many good +1+1 counter cards have been printed. Getting a good mix that matches your metagame is tricky when there are so many options, and figuring out what support they need - trample or removal, or graveyard exiling or hand disruption gets quite long-winded.
In general, I'd look for cards that use counters to track something else - your Ochre Jellys, or things that put +1+1 counters for things you are already doing - like if you ran Willow Geist and Scavenging Ooze.
Thats before considering how to maximise cards like Oath of Ajani or keywords like Proliferate - it might be worth playing some cards that have nothing to do with counters if they suit everything else well enough - life and tokens from Timely Reinforcements can matter a lot in some setups.
If you want somewhere to focus, getting lands sorted is the best place. A good 3 color mana base is expensive and takes some tuning, Lands like Vastwood Fortification Flip or the various +1+1 counter options take up space and fixing mana and keeping space for them can be tricky.

Holagod perhaps your meta is more casual than mine. I know this list would get crushed by my own playgroup. The mana-curve as mentioned before makes this really slow, but outside of that you have almost no interaction, so combo decks get free-wins.
I would recommend more low-costing cards like Pelt Collector and Experiment One. Having more copies of The Ozolith would also definitely help. There’s also some solid 2cmc cards like Avatar of the Resolute that are worth considering.
There are also some cards which ate just better versions of what you’re running. For example Duskshell Crawler will almost always be better than Tuskguard Captain. And Nissa, Voice of Zendikar will almost always be better than both of your existing planeswalkers.
Stuff like Corpsejack Menace is a “win more” card, i.e he comes down late, and will do nothing for you if you’re behind, while only exaggerating your win if you’re already ahead… so i don’t think he (or your other high-cmc-cards) add much value.

I'd definitely run some more creatures, Pelt Collector and Steel Leaf Champion are some good ones. I'm not really sure how useful Utopia Vow is, I'd cut it. Similarly, I think its better to run more creatures than one time pump spells.

The deck looks fine. There are a bunch of cards that feel too slow to run personally (most notably Gyre Sage, Swarm Shambler, Tireless Tracker, Voracious Hydra). There’re also a bunch of cards i’d be expecting a deck like this to have which appear to be missing (Pelt Collector, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Cloudfin Raptor, Thrummingbird). So the list overall feels ok, but not as fine-tuned as it could be, imo.
As far as bad matchups, that’s where your sideboard comes in - at the moment I would suggest this is the spot that needs the most attention if you’re getting competitive.
Some sideboard cards to consider:
Now, the quantities of the above will depend on your own local meta, as well as how badly they scare your deck. Sideboard choices should always be focused towards your local competitive playgroup. Saying that, the above mentioned suggestions are likely to come in handy.
Other things to consider as far as good-vs-bad matchups, for your sideboard choices:
don’t worry about control, imo. You should be aiming to be fast enough to have the advantage. Saying that, do consider the likes of Veil of Summer if it’s an issue (though i would say, if it is an issue, it’s because your mainboard isn’t tuned enough).
Board wipes feel like they could pose a big threat for you
Burn, and other hyper-aggro decks are probably going to have an advantage

mono green stompy wants to come out fast, and come out swinging. My main concern is that your deck is quite slow & clumsy, with lots of mana dorks and lots of very-high-costing cards which are going to gum up your hand.
Some cards, like Colossal Dreadmaw, are just bad. Regardless of how casual you’re playing, this card is never worth it.
I would suggest ditching all 12 of your mana dorks, as well as Dreadmaw, to get some more aggressive low cmc creatures into the deck. I would also suggest dropping Stonecoil Serpent (it’s not great for stompy/aggro), and limit yourself to no-more than 2-copies each of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Khalni Hydra (drawing multiple will make for bad, hard to play hands)
Creatures you should consider replacing the above with include: Avatar of the Resolute, Barkhide Troll, Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Steel Leaf Champion, Strangleroot Geist, and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig
Overwhelming Stampede is too slow a card, and often overkill. I would suggest running Aspect of Hydra instead, as it can get you wins much, much faster, and more reliably. You should also consider Rancor as another noncreature option.
Stompy/aggro has no real reason to run Utopia Sprawl imo. Also, 24 lands feels very excessive. Most mono-green stompy decks are generally looking to run around 18 (maybe 20 at a push).
There are a lot of existing decks built in modern for mono-green-stompy, including budget-builds. Have a google of “modern mono green stompy” should yield a ton of results to help you with your brew
