Maybe I should be more specific.

I'm looking for advice to make this deck better. I have fun playing this deck and would like to iron out some tweaks. I know it's not top-tier, but it's fun. Anyone have any constructive criticism?

I have, as always Cool

My suggestions are:

-2 Borderland Behemoth
-2 Boldwyr Intimidator (it is better in sdb)
-4 Firebelly Changeling
-1 Mutavault
-1 Plains

+1 Brion Stoutarm
+2 Thundercloud Shaman
+2 Kithkin Greatheart
+2 Favor of the Mighty
+1 Giant Harbinger
+2 Forbidding Watchtower

I would also consider green for mana accelerators and/or card drawing, and an earlier Elvish Handservant.

If you want to beat face with big guys I suggest treefolk. The t2 environment is just too keen to beat decks like giants that cannot get around global removal.

On a side note foriysian totem is a giant lawl.

Play 4 Pyroclasm, 4 Sulfurous Blast, 2 Molten Disaster, 4 Feudkiller Verdict and 4 Thundercloud Shaman. Your tall but dumb creatures survives, most other stuff does not. Play Oblivion Ring to take away those who does.

Drop the bannerets and that stuff. Go for artifact mana.

The sole reason for playing Giants is Thundercloud Shaman. Revolve the deck around him.

You should definitely be running 4x Taurean Mauler.
