Sorry also forgot to mention if budget is not a major concern then The Great Henge would be an obvious include. Gives a starting +1 counter and card draw for creatures entering the board.

Have you thought about Mystic Forge at all? It works the same way with morph as Vizier of the Menagerie plus gives you a way to manipulate the top of your deck. Also The Great Henge is some amazing draw power and a little bit of life gain.

Why not have any cards that draw off playing creatures if you're playing so many creatures? Not even Beast Whisperer? There's also Primordial Sage, Soul of the Harvest, and Zendikar Resurgent for that. I also think you could really use Toski, Bearer of Secrets and Ohran Frostfang as well, the frostfang being especially good because it gives your creatures deathtouch, so you can cut as many of the deathtouch creatures as possible, such as Daggerback Basilisk, which is an awful card. Saryth, the Viper's Fang and Bow of Nylea are also good ways to give your creatures deathtouch without having to commit so many slots to creatures with that ability that do literally nothing else for you. If you're not concerned with budget, there's also Concordant Crossroads, The Great Henge, and Glimpse of Nature which would be great additions.

Not enough math. Needs a Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider somewhere in there. Also, in the math, Conclave Mentor isnt mentioned at all, and neither is the Bramble Paragon! Sadness I say! Also, I'd swap the Necropotence with The Great Henge for more counter madness and card draw, and it does somewhat replace the function of the Good fortune Unicorn as well/is a redundancy.

I know what you're saying. Green has lots of good card draw and finishers as well. Green has The Great Henge, Rishkar's Expertise, Seasons Past and many more great staples and many powerful cards. Green has Sylvan Library! Green is arguably the 1st best color. To exclude it based off of the reason it only has ramp to offer means you has not look hard enough at Green.

However. I agree that if it's ramp you are after there's plenty of ramp that's great outside of Green.

I've been playing more or less the full version of this deck for over a month now (minus the Peatlands). I was shocked how big of a difference Noble Hierarch made. The Exalted trigger is great and I run 1-2 fewer lands than this shell, so the mana dorking is much appreciated. I don't bother with the 1-of Experiment One (even after having its purpose explained to me lol) and instead I mainboard a single copy of The Great Henge. It's unlikely you'll draw it in most games, but all the pump spells make it trivially easy to cast and your opponent is screwed if they don't have an answer. Even if you use all your mana to cast it, it gives you back GG which is awesome.

The other differences I've made are all pretty trivial. Compared to this list, I run +1 Rancor, -1 Vines of Vastwood. My sideboard is different but that's metagame dependent anyway.

I'm a firm believer at this point that Treetop Village SUCKS. I've never had a game where I was happy to draw it, but I've sure had plenty of games where a plain ol Forest would've probably ensured the W. I'd like to find a more suitable manland.
