This deck Calling of the Inner Beast, which used to be called Eminent Surroundings, is an aura pump deck.  Aura Gnarlid and Yavimaya Enchantress are the primary attackers.  Slippery Bogle and Gladecover Scout use hexproof to hide important auras from opponents so that the slammers can do their jobs.  Don't forget to count Wild Growth as an aura, and opponent's auras are also in the math.  This deck has 25 auras.  It should be enough for some serious aura combos.

The major weakness of this deck is that it only has 8 creatures.  To help combat that there is Reclaim, Commune with Nature, Brainstorm, and Ponder.  These spells, along with the other spells can simultaneously be used to pump Nivix Cyclops and/or Kiln Fiend.  Also, to prevent chump blockers, clearing the battlefield with Lightning Bolt, and/or Unsummon may be necessary.

Llanowar Elves
Arbor Elf

This is a slow deck. The object is to ward off large attacks with Fog, Undergrowth, Fruition, and Moments Peace.
More stalling comes from the deathtouch of Deadly Recluse, and Ambush Viper, and also Mortal Wound.
Use Llanowar, Arbor Elf, Elvish Mystic, Fa'adyah Seer, and maybe Evolution Charm for mana excelleration.
