I both love and hate how you can make Gifts all up side. I love how it opens up interesting combo plans for decks, but I hate playing against it as you feel like you're losing either way.

[[Impact Tremors]] and / or [[Purphoros, God of the Forge]] turns your [[Hornet Nest]] triggers into face pinging... Thinking about it now, I may want to design something around this idea...

I originally thought it was a little pricy myself (mana wise) until I tried it. Being an instant is important to why I think it's a good card. Any time your opponent ends their turn, if you have enough mana and / or creatures untapped, you get to make a few more Saprolings (the Buyback can be Convoked), and over a number of turns, you get to outswarm the opponent. It's not big and flashy like some infinite combo, but the constant value is on par with draw spells.

Because all your non-Mountains already add Colorless, the Wastes aren't needed. I'd replace them with at least one Sanctum of Ugin and more Mountains or Ghost Quarter.
Expedition Map will help you assemble Tron, or fetch other nonbasics like Sanctum of Ugin or Eldrazi Temple.
Kozilek's Return would make for a good sweeper
Alpine Moon is good sideboard option for the Tron Mirror.
You may want to look into adding Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and / or Reality Smasher.

Seems like a decent casual deck.
I still want to make a Mimic Vat deck. I think Thundermaw would be a good one to Imprint.

Lete get in on this "budget" T2 deck thing:


https://www.mtgvault.com/dedwards/decks/yes-my-liege/
My Selesnya aggro build. If you change the Mana base to 4 Sunpetal Grove, 4 Temple Garden, 7 Plains, and 8 Forest; the price drops to about $150. I use the lands in this list because I already have them.

https://www.mtgvault.com/dedwards/decks/elves-be-warriors-too/
Another aggro list. This one sits at about $100.

Hidden Stockpile? It's both a sac outlet and token production.
Hunted Witness is another 1 mana human that makes a token when it dies.
Depending on how heavy you go on the 1 mana creatures, Immortal Servitude might be worth considering.

Kessig Prowler, like most 1 mana 2/1's, is VERY aggro. It was a consideration for my Wilt-Leraf Liege deck, but Dryad Militant being both colours beat it out. But with it being a werewolf, it was very on theme here.

I had to read Vildin-Pack Alpha (Geier Reach Bandit) ability twice before including Prowler. The Alpha makes a top decked Prowler a 1 man 4/4, which is just insane.

As for the 'draw' cards, outside of combo decks where they help assemble pieces, I've not been impressed by them. I also wanted the noncreatures to be instant speed, allowing for the ability to pass the turn to force a transform and still have something playable during the opponent's turn. Howlpack Resurgence being an instant speed lord effect helps a lot with this plan.

Never been a fan of Immerwolf and Huntmaster being in the same deck. They feel counter productive.

I haven't had a chance to play with or against Moonlight Hunt, so I can't quite gauge its usefulness.

Evolution Charm is interesting. The flying option is hilarious, but the land search feels underwhelming.

Overall, not a bad build.

Ye, the curve does concern me. But there wasn't many 2 mana wolves or werewolves that fit my vision for the deck. Though I can see Duskwatch Recruiter taking Breakneck Rider spot (and maybe dropping Kruin Outlaw for the 4th Recruiter).

Lambholt Pacifist may be worth considering too...

Interesting take on Elf Warriors. Quite different from my builds (I have a mono Green and a GW Revolt based version). I've yet to get Pelt Collector to test them in mine, but they look like an awesome addition.

Oh, didn't realise that. I suggested Shock because it's a premium burn spell players are likely to come across, and easy to understand how it works, so (imo) a good card for beginners (and veterans). Also a good teaching tool for different ways to use the same card.

I like the Blasting Station + Undying / Persist + Solemnity idea :)

If Solemnity keeping counters off the creatures is the combo, you may want to look into creatures with Persist too.
Another combo piece you may like is Phyrexian Unlife, which can keep you in the game until they remove Phyrexian Unlife.
Also Idyllic Tutor can search for both enchantments. Dimir Machinations can Transmute for them too.

This deck may want Hardened Scales and Gavony Township.

Adding a description, filling out"How to Play", and adding tags helps a lot to get feedback
