Undergrowth Champion, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Panharmonicon, Sphinx of Uthuun, Grave Titan. This was some quick stuff off the top of my head! I think you could benefit a lot from a Flicker based deck. That way you can flicker strong ETB in and out, getting more out of the card. From what I know tho, flicker cards are mainly white or blue. You could also add ways to sac creatures then bring them back to proc their ETB's more.

Memes are dreams.

E wit will o in for Brutalizer. Sounds like a plan. I actually had Undergrowth Champion in beforehand but he came out in a later cut. He was a nice wall, I just didn't have enough trample enablers, he couldn't get through. I'm a little hesitant to run Summer Bloom, as I don't typically have many lands in hand compared to searching them up, but I'll give it a try! Thanks for the suggestions!

Harvest Season has become a meme.

Alright, Eternal Witness should replace Brutalizer Exarch. I get the Tutor effect but it doesn't seem all that powerful in your deck considering you're trying to essentially storm the board, and Exarch is slow anyway.

Undergrowth Champion would be good, and Summer Bloom seems like an auto-include for ramp.

DeinoStinkus on Windgrace has all the lands!

Garruk Wildspeaker as ramp

End-Raze Forerunners as finisher

Undergrowth Champion as utility

Ground Assault as removal

And Finale of Devastation is pricey, but is an excellent finisher

Alright, so right off the bat it's a pretty strong deck with lots of synergy but is lacking big payoffs or interaction which means you'll struggle to do much against combos. As a creature-based deck you're also naturally weak to board wipes and removal.

We can start by improving the mana base: 24 is probably the right number considering the Reefs, and looking at the stats it looks like what you want early are Forests and Mountains. I'd definitely recommend Cinder Glade/Sheltered Thicket due to their having the basic subtypes, so can be utilised alongside both the reveal (Game Trail)) and check (Rootbound Crag/Hinterland Harbor) lands. Unclaimed Territory gives you all three colours but will get slightly worse if you start including more non-creature spells, while Lumbering Falls seems pretty good for you what with being an Elemental and all. Finally there are the shock lands and a strict upgrade to Evolving Wilds in Fabled Passage but they cost money. Ps you want to put "ZEN" in the square brackets after the lands of you want them show up as those lovely original Zendikar ones.

Ok, with that out of the way, we can take a look at the creatures. I maintain that a single Omnath, Locus of Rage is the best top end you can have here, as he'll do silly things with all your lands entering and if anyone tried to wrath your board they'll probably just end up killing themselves! Also two copies of his latest incarnation (Omnath, Locus of the Roil) again gives you some damage to ping around and some card draw. Undergrowth Champion is a beast, and the Cavalier cycle might be worth looking into as well. I think you can easily afford to cut some creatures in order to get other spells in - maybe down to 28? Stuff I'm thinking of would be Temur Battle Rage, Growth Spiral, Neoform, Hadana's Climb  Flip, and Retreat to Kazandu.

Finally there's your sideboard, if you want to get into that for the paper version. Here you'd probably want to consider Plasm Capture, Broken Bond, Cindervines, Shapers' Sanctuary, Rhythm of the Wild, 2 Pithing Needles or Sorcerous Spyglasss and maybe a single Chandra, Awakened Inferno.

I have Hydroid Krasis in my aquireboard, I'm going to wait till it rotates out of standard and the price goes down, Undergrowth Champion isn't great and will probably get dropped at some point but it can grab 8 or so counters when it needs to to help Simic Ascendancy , and while testing this deck I've gotten a 512/512 on turn 5 before

Undergrowth Champion and Llanowar Reborn both seem pretty good, I'll try it out

Llanowar Reborn could work nicely.... maybe Undergrowth Champion ?
