Deck Description

Legality:
Standard, built with cards from the block Kaladesh (Kaladesh, Aether Revolt).
For the mana-base I added some cards from the Shadows over Innistrad (Shadows over Innistrad, Eldritch Moon) and Battle for Zendikar (Battle for Zendikar, Oath of the Gatewatcher) block.

Ideas:
I wanted to do something with these energy counters and so I took a quick look on what was available to build a deck.
One of the first cards I stumbled upon where Aetherstorm Roc and Architect of the Untamed and so I quickly decided to go for a G/W deck. I did choose Kaladesh only cards because the energy-counters where only to find there and the deck could work some time without changing too much.
The rest of the cards was rather easy to find and choose: Bristling Hydra as finisher, Eddytrail Hawk to provide some evasion when needed, Riparian Tiger as finisher, Thriving Rhino as finisher/ intermediate creature. Attune with Aether for ramp, Decoction Module for enery-counter creation, Fabrication Module for strengthening my creatures and Woodweaver's Puzzleknot for enery-counter creation and lifegain. Last came some support spells like Nature's Way or Blossoming Defense.

Tests:
This deck exists only on this site and has never been played against another deck. Regardless I'm open to all suggestions and ideas that may help to improve this deck.

Update:
With the release of Kaladesh's Aether Revolt I did some changes. Out goes Thriving Rhino, in comes Aetherstream Leopard as the Leopard is more aggressive and features trample. I also replaced Riparian Tiger with the Leopard.
Last Bristling Hydra got replaced with Greenbelt Rampager as the Rampager allows the production of 1 energy-counters for {G}, even more if Aetherstorm Roc or Decoction Module is on the field.

How to Play

The basic idea here is to play Aetherstorm Roc as fast as possible. Its energy-effect allows it to gain a +1/+1 counter when attacking and tap a defending creature. This can help Thriving Rhino or Bristling Hydra to get through your opponents defence. Eddytrail Hawk is another method of bypassing those defence.

Architect of the Untamed and Decoction Module should help you to get enough energy counters while Fabrication Module helps to strengthen your creatures.

Deck discussion for G/W Standard: Energy Counter

Aether Revolt's Greenbelt Rampager will be an awesome fit here. Turn 1: Attune with Aether; Turn 2: Greenbelt Rampager :D

I haven't looked into the Aether Revolt cards yet but this seems to fit perfectly in here. Will be added for sure when the cards go online. Thanks for the suggestion.
