Hey Walrighti, +1!
Congrats on your first deck! You have a lot of fun cards in here and it looks great! I imagine you want to tune and make it even more efficient so here are some ideas...
Add 3 categories: #Combo, #Lifegain, and #Evasion; and then sort your maybeboard the same way you've done your mainboard to easily rank your choices within a category (By "combo" I mean all your "if-then" cards like Trudge Garden that are slower and don't work by themselves). Remove #Creatures (most of them are #Combo).
Avoid most cards above 4 cmc... Willowdusk is fast and fragile, so play into that... Also, prioritize cards that can do 2 or more things or that give value on ETB... If you have pet cards that don't really fit and that hurt to cut, put them in a "I'll build that theme later" list.
-1 Pelakka Wurm
-1 Ezzaroot Channeler ... cut the fatties.
-1 Decree of Pain ... too slow
-1 Bow of Nylea ... meh
-1 Sangromancer ... amazing card but doesn't trigger when you need it to.
-1 Venser's Journal ... also amazing, but too conditional for this build
-1 Ranger's Path ... all your ramp should be on turn 2
-1 Temple of the False God ... this card is almost never good
+1 Devoted Druid ... this card is a beast
+1 Talisman of Resilience ... #Ramp
+1 Llanowar Elves ... #Ramp... the elves enable Willowdusk combos on turn 3.
+1 Viridian Joiner ... #Ramp... #Combo
+1 Killing Wave
+1 Massacre Girl ... #Wipe
+1 Beast Within ... #Removal
+1 Golgari Charm ... #Evasion
~1 Rancor ... Trample and haste are important... #Evasion
~1 Destined ... the choices are really good.
+1 Soul Channeling ... #Combo with Willowbark and stick to the board...
~1 Phyrexian Processor ... fun?
~1 Lurking Evil ... maybe?
~1 Solidarity of Heroes ... #Combo
~1 Ooze Flux ... tokens at instant speed?
~1 Retribution of the Ancients ... removal?
+1 Thought Gorger ... (leaves)
+1 Return of the Wildspeaker ... #Draw
+1 Triskelion ... #Combo
+1 Nighthawk Scavenger ... #Fatty
...Always play at least 10 ramp spells under 3 cmc.
...Playtest and make sure Willowbark consistently makes a fatty (with evasion) before turn 6-7.
Happy building :)

Saccox, thanks for the suggestions! I'm not sure Grim Affliction does quite enough to edge out a niche, but I rather like the Retribution of the Ancients angle, especially when potentially combined with Growth-Chamber Guardian . Really I could see it coming down to being match-up dependent - For example, I had included Golgari Charm in my paper version of this deck to deal with some of the threats I realistically run into irl such as weenies and enchantment removal, but Retribution of the Ancients could easily be traded in its place depending on the opposing deck at hand.

Man, Basri's Lieutenant, try him!
Ow yea, and then there is his uncalled for pseudo evasion/protection for multicolour...
Also, how often do you use Retribution of the Ancients? I'm always happy to drop it, but then I never seem to be able to use it for some reason.

Fertilid is good with the counters but is too slow whenever I run it. I think you should run something like Blossoming Defense over Kaya's Ghostform, Kaya's Ghostform will make it drop all the enchantments that are on it. Mask of Avacyn can be another card in a similar role. The Ozolith seems so good in this deck that I would think about adding some equipment in and maybe a few other artifacts to try and get Inventors' Fair to work. Sarulf, Realm Eater may be a board wipe that will synergize, though a bit finnicky. Obsessive Skinner seems too difficult to get working early with little pay off if it does, Evolutionary Escalation may fit well into that deck, making counters, and friends, early and often. Mighty Emergence can probably do some work as the game goes on, Necropolis Regent seems like the perfect curve topper, Retribution of the Ancients might be a good removal engine. I do think that trample is the most important keyword early, so Ring of Kalonia is a good choice, Dragon Fangs or Vorrac Battlehorns may be good additions as well.

Retribution of the Ancients looks like not very good match. It is here just for one combo, and since you have just one in the deck and no enchantment searchers, it is very unlikely to happen. If you get one without Messenger, it is totally useless. It is very good card but for decks fully depednent on graft/undying
