Vivien, Champion of the Wilds
Legendary Planeswalker — Vivien
You may cast creature spells as though they had flash.
+1: Until your next turn, up to one target creature gains vigilance and reach.
-2: Look at the top three cards of your library. Exile one face down and put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order. For as long as it remains exiled, you may look at that card and you may cast it if it’s a creature card.

d_iros: your experience with what's underperforming should be your foremost guide, but here's my take:
Mistfire Weaver: seems pretty mediocre, although it hurts a bit to cut a morph card

seshiro_of_the_orochi thanks for the suggestions and I'm glad you like the deck. As far as the arkbow and tooth and nail, I had them in here before but the creature count is so low that they didn't do as much work as I needed. Vivien, Champion of the Wilds on the other hand looks like an awesome card for this deck so I'll definitely find a spot for it.

Gorgeous, very cool deck. Definitely a +1 from me. I have some cards you might want to try, but they are pretty much just gravy:

Might want to look into adding these cards for combat step potency. Berserkers' Onslaught, Aggravated Assault, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Savage Ventmaw, Rampaging Baloths, Skarrgan Hellkite, End-Raze Forerunners, terrastodon, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Scourge of the Throne
And these cards for card-draw and mana ramp Beast Whisperer, Garruk's Uprising, Castle Garenbrig, Llanowar Elves, Temple of Abandon, Gruul Turf, Sheltered Thicket, Cragcrown Pathway Flip, Return of the Wildspeaker, Elvish Mystic, Hunter's Insight, Ilysian Caryatid, Guardian Project, Bonders' Enclave, Nylea, Keen-Eyed,Lifecrafter's Bestiary
And the cuts I were thinking of could be Vivien, Champion of the Wilds, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Giant Adephage, Spidersilk Armor, Mistcutter Hydra, Shifting Ceratops, Sunder Shaman, Voracious Hydra, Rhonas's Monument, Blood Mist
This are just my first initial thoughts on the deck.

One of my building conditions for a deck is that I have leastwise one Planeswalker. One that has continually impressed me is Ajani Unyielding. In Enchantress-style decks, or ones with few instants and sorceries, it often draws two or more cards each turn. The high loyalty and removal make for it to be difficult to kill.
Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer also protects herself quite well whiles bearing a game-winning ultimate. Making a 4/4 flying helps as well.
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds is another fantastic card. The instant speed is great in all matchups and, in the worst-case scenario, she cycles.
Lastly, and rather similar to Ajani, is Garruk, Caller of Beasts. In creature decks, he draws a whole lot of cards, flooding the board the very next turn. This card is great, and I am surprised people do not have it in more strategies. (I love it in Elves.)

Chaos Warp: Ciri jumping through time.
Looking forward to seeing it come together!

Seasons Past -> Praetor's Council (maybe)
Winds of Rath and possibly Time Wipe -> Wrath of God or Austere Command or Planar Cleansing or Final Judgement
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds -> Scute Swarm
Tamiyo, Field Researcher -> Any Overrun effect Triumph of the Hordes and Overwhelming Stampede are good options.
Brainstorm -> Sphinx's Revelation
Growth Spiral -> Coiling Oracle

I’ve had a lot of experience playing Kadena, and I personally think a combo win works better with Kadena’s draw engine and ability to control the board. You can see what I’ve done with my deck here:

That being said, regardless of the route you take to win, I can’t stress enough how good flash is in this deck. The more consistently we can flash in morphs, the more we’ll be drawing. However you also don’t want too many instances of that effect or one could be a dead draw if you’ve already got the effect in play. This is why I run cards that do slightly different things as well as provide flash.
The ones I run are Leyline of Anticipation and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir as well as flash effects on lands in the form of Alchemist's Refuge and Winding Canyons. Having a repeat effect on lands is fine since you still get mana out of them otherwise. I run Leyline for the possibility of dropping it at the beginning of the game and because it gives everything flash, not just creatures. Teferi only gives creatures flash, but he himself has flash, can be easily tutored for, and stops opponents from playing at instant speed which gives us an edge.
You might also try Vivien, Champion of the Wilds who provides some other utility that might fit well in your combat based build.
