Deck Description

I want to update my Selesnya Liege deck with the following:

Glass of the Guildpact will be replaced by Sylvan Anthem, when I get a set. It's strictly better.

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth could be worked in here to allow Horizon Canopy to add mana painlessly, give Gavony Township the ability to tap for coloured mana, and allow the Plains to basically be dual lands.

I'm also considering using Portable Hole in place of Path to Exile (adding some number of Path in the sideboard).

How to Play

Play multicolored creatures with power greater than their mana value.
Make them even bigger with Sylvan Anthem (Glass of the Guildpact) and Wilt-Leaf Liege.
Keep attacking until the opponent's dead :p

Birds of Paradise allows for a turn 2 Knight of Autumn / Loxodon Smiter, and can help get Liege down a turn early. If I could afford Noble Hierarch, I'd use it instead of BoP.

Dryad Militant, in addition to being a great turn 1 threat, provides some slight hate VS decks that want spells in the graveyard.

Knight of Autumn provides us with mainboard Enchantment / Artifact or lifegain, for match-ups where that matters. Otherwise it's a 3 mana 4/3.

Path is to remove troublesome creatures or remove a blocker when swinging for lethal.

Nullhide Ferox: I'm expecting Grief + Ephemerate / Cloudshift to be a thing. Nullhide Ferox has the same discard clause as Loxodon Smiter and Wilt-Leaf Liege, so I'm hoping to use this to punish Grief / Discard decks.
Kitchen Finks comes in against aggro / Burn. Between Find and Knight of Autumn, we should have enough lifegain to by time to out value the board.
Dragonlord Dromoka can't be countered and prevents the opponent from casting spells in our turn. This is for he control match-up.
Gaddock Teeg can (hopefully) hinder Tron and Eldrazi Tron.
Damping Sphere also helps VS Tron. It also hinders Storm.
Relic of Progenitus is just my personal favorite graveyard hate. Rest in Peace may be a better option here.
Sorcerous Spyglass is largely to hate on planeswalkers.

Deck discussion for Liege Anthem

Consider Noose Constrictor
If an opponent plays a discard card you may be in a position where you want that turn 2 loxodon or wilt-leaf alongside a big snake.

Sadly, the discard into play effect of Wilt-Leaf Liege, Loxodon Smiter, and Nullhide Ferox effect only triggers if an opponent's effect makes you discard them, so Noose Constrictor doesn't really help.

The trick is to react to a discard by discarding everything else, so they will be forced to discard one of those three :)
That means you get two big creatures for two mana, but will probably only have lands left in hand. Still I can see this being strong enough to use the snake as a sideboard card.
