Primeval Titans should be a 3 of in this deck, which allows you to drop one of the 2 drop land searches you have. I would go with 4 Search for tomorrow instead of sylvan scrying and drop the rampants for 2 of the titans and drop a Solemn for the other titan.

That will allow your deck to win without tooth going off and will also allow you to cast the tooth quicker than you would otherwise. You could use lotus' over the Urza lands, your choice, its a personal preference I think.

Ok, Creature choices should be 1 Kiki Jiki and 1 Blightsteel another combo is the Urbrask, the Hidden and Emrakul.

I would drop the Sundering Titan to the Board a Two of and have all four of these as Tooth Targets, Each one wins you the game.

You need Artifact/Enchantment destruction for Blood Moons and the artifacts that do not allow you search your library. You also need a way to get rid of Leonin Arbiter.

I would have 2 of the red mana source main deck, and 1 Devils play or the XR card that can't be prevented or countered.

I think Emrakul/Urabrask and Platinum Angel/Leonin Abunas is probably all you need in terms of targets, that's I can't lose and I win?

Yeah, Tooth and Nail screams to use Emrakul. Inner Flame Acolyte is the better Haste guy for Emrakul though because if they kill him before attack Emrakul still gets to attack. I also never really understood why you use Abunas/Platinum instead of just 2 Platinum Angels. You can't cast Abunas if you draw it but you can cast Platinum.

You should also play the Punishing Fire/Grove combo for creature control.

The reason it was abunas plus angel was that in mirrodin block artifact removal was more common than creature removal.

Kiki-Jiki-combo is bad when you have zero disruption. They just kill it in response.

I like the wolf run list without tron. maybe run a big zoo deck with tooth as the high end?

Something like this maybe, not really geared for any specific decks out there but seems like fun.

Emrakul and Inner flame and tooth are basically just there too push through a big amoount of damage rather than using tooth as a win now combo as most of them can be disrupted.

Overgrown Tomb is for extirpate in the board which isnt completed yet.

1 Overgrown Tomb
1 Treetop Village
1 Sejiri Steppe
4 Temple Garden
2 Inkmoth nexus
2 Kessig Wolf Run
2 Stomping Grounds
3 Grove of the Burnwillows
4 Verdant Catacombs
4 Forest

4 Tarmagoyf
4 Knight of the Reliquary
4 Primeval Titan
4 Wild Nacatyl
4 Quasali Pridemage
1 Emrakul The Aeons Torn
1 Inner Flame Acolyte

3 Tooth And Nail
4 Punishing Fire
3 Path To Exile
3 Beast Within
1 Demonfire

Maybe change some stuff add some land search possibly lightning helix.

Edit - Fixed screwy manabase
