Verdant Force Discussion

I don't really see the point of the +1/+1 subtheme here. I think more flicker effects could be better instead. Think cards like Conjurer's Closet , Deadeye Navigator , Displace , Essence Flux , Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , Teferi's Time Twist , Voidwalk . Heck, even Identity Thief kinda fits this bill. Otherwise, just add more ETB effects. I notice there's no Coiling Oracle in here and I'm pretty shocked. Maybe some more removal would be prudent. Putrefy at the very least, more (3-5 instant speed removal spells) is probably better.
So cards I think are worth cutting are most things that have to do w/ +1/+1 counters. Winding Constrictor Skatewing Spy , Ivy Lane Denizen , Bred for the Hunt , Hardened Scales , potentially Evolution Sage . There's a few other counters cards that could be considered for cuts but have enough synergy with the rest of the deck to be fine. I'd also think about cutting down on the token subtheme as well. I don't see Verdant Force being that helpful. There's not enough cards that trigger on "whenever a creature ETB" in here for tokens to be really worth it, I think. Speaking of cards that trigger "when creature ETB" I don't really like Death Match or Season of Growth (or for that matter Hedonist's Trove ) in here. These cards don't really do enough for you or let your opponents do something bad to you, potentially. Once again, I'd look to put in more ETB effects or I'd look to add in a few instants and sorceries that do things you want to do in any deck (removal, board wipe, card draw, ramp, tutors, etc.)
Overall, this deck looks really fun. I hope to play against it someday.

What do you think of eliminating some of the tap lands for more basics or just upgrading to better lands?

Consider the following:
Winding Constrictor , Thrun, the Last Troll , Fauna Shaman , Tuskguard Captain , Fertilid , Animation Module , Cytoplast Root-Kin
Verdant Force feels too slow for this deck.

No Slimefoot, the Stowaway ? He'd be a great wincon, and he makes saprolings. Especially if you equip him with things like Neko-Te and Grafted Exoskeleton . Poison-Tip Archer is another good aristocrat. I also think you need more fungus that accumulate spore counters, to help you make more saprolings. Verdant Force is the original Tendershoot Dryad , and Verdant Embrace gives you a third one.

The cuts I suggested to Stone:
Explosive Vegetation (you could still run this, Route's just better)
And my suggested additions:
Skullclamp (my very favorite)
Just suggestions as always. The curve is waaayyy too shallow to be consistent.

I think (Don't quote me) that a 2:1 ratio between Tokens producers and token Enhancers is a good starting point.
Here are some suggestions to up the number of stand alone token production that you should consider:
Secure the Wastes - It's and instant!
Tendershoot Dryad - Tokens EVERY upkeep
Martial Coup - Board wipe with upside, sometimes.
Hooded Hydra - Flexible
Arachnogenesis - A personal pet card, no one see's it coming. Kinda stand alone, requires you to be attacked
Imperious Perfect - Low drop with a very nicely costed ability
Wolfbriar Elemental - Pretty underestimated
Verdant Force - very high costed, but another every upkeep effect
Ant Queen - pretty bad creature, but an abusable, cheap mana sink
Trostani Discordant - Homeward path on a stick that pumps and makes tokens
Jade Mage - Meh, but its an early token producer if you need it. Late game it can be abused too.
You are severely lack card draw and there are a few abusable cards for tokens:
Be careful with how many of these you put in since they rely on your board.
There are safer ramp options, in my opinion, in green:
