Spell_Slam - Thanks for the upvote and the comment/suggestions!

I had never consider Rampage of the Clans before as an offensive weapon but that has potential. This deck can generate an astonishing amount of treasure tokens in a single turn depending on the board state and that could be a finishing blow. I was considering adding in Displaced Dinosaurs for a similar effect. Mixed with Bootleggers' Stash I was thinking that could be pretty interesting!

Rhythm of the Wild is good, no doubt about it. A little more options that Fervor but no potential suicide drawbacks like Mass Hysteria. I do like Urabrask the Hidden, only drawback is the 5 CMC vs 2 or 3 for the two walls I am running. Dowsing Device  Flip I am not crazy about due to limiting its effectiveness to only a single creature. It can pump but pump is not generally what this deck needs with the amount of big dragons. Song of Totentanz is very interesting...had never thought of thought particular card. Other similar cards I considered but not that one..I will likely experiment with that!

For the mana ramp, I had considered less ramp spells for more creatures but in my experience, the only way to slow this deck down is by an early board wipe. Thus, I am willing to reduce the effectiveness of the deck with Ognis for more consistency. Ognis was more of a convenient commander that gave me access to the colors I wanted that had some synergy with the deck concept rather than being the central, pivotal piece the deck revolves around.

I had considered Xorn and Jolene, the Plunder Queen but could never find a slot for them in the deck. The abilities they provide are good but what to cut?!? Similar cards like Professional Face-Breaker and Grim Hireling not only produce treasure but also give me utility via card draw potential or removal at the expense of treasures. But you are correct, so many options!

For indirect damage, I did originally have cards like Reckless Fireweaver and Nadier's Nightblade present but again cut them to fit in other cards. I have a few copies of Mirkwood Bats and I like how it triggers on entry and leaving for both lifegain and drain...Maybe I will try to add in that for some flair!

Thank you again for taking the time to comment! Greatly appreciate the thoughts and gives me something to think about! The deck is already pretty hard to deal with and has a pretty good track record but it has been a while since I have tinkered with it :)

Rampage of the Clans is a personal favourite of mine for any deck that creates a lot of artifacts and plays Green. Slap this down at your opponent's end step before your turn and turn all your treasures into 3/3s. That will usually end the game.

In terms of haste enablers, I think Rhythm of the Wild is among the better ones. Urabrask the Hidden and Dowsing Device  Flip are excellent. Song of Totentanz is pretty great at giving you a lot of treasures or enabling hasty dragons for cheap. Any of these would be better than Crashing Drawbridge and Tuk Tuk Rubblefort, and maybe Anger as well.

Beastcaller Savant is a mana dork with haste, so it seems like a great choice here. Probably better than Rampant Growth, despite only being for creatures. Ruby, Daring Tracker is also another good option. Maybe better than Nature's Lore.

There are so many artifact/treasure/token doublers out there to choose from that could make the deck. Xorn, Wulfgar of Icewind Dale, Jolene, the Plunder Queen... I'm for sure missing some.

In terms of outlets, Marionette Master, Mirkwood Bats, Reckless Fireweaver, Mayhem Devil... again there are lots that could make the deck very deadly.

I recently made a couple changes to my Purphy.. added Song of Totentanz and Court of Embereth. Not sure if they are going to work, the Court might just generate hate.

I held off on adding Redcap (was also going to remove Beetleback).. I'm nervous about not having chumps to block with.

But I am looking forward to Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might  Flip ... Figure its a straight upgrade from Panharmonicon or Solphim, Mayhem Dominus. And there are ways to pump Ojer's Power with extra mana and Purphoros
