Well, I build my first ever 3 color deck. It is red, white, and green. Tips on how to make it better are definitely welcomed. (I do not have shock lands, I'm waiting to get them until Dragon's Maze comes out) it seems like I made the deck pretty versatile, but I don't know if I put enough of a focus into it. Furthermore, I have a couple other Frontline Medics, but I'm running them in my human detain deck, so I'm not sure whether I should put them in this deck instead.
I think that the biggest problem with your current list is that it lacks meaningful card advantage engines. Lurking Predators comes to mind as a cheap and powerful option. Still, you could always run something like Harmonize or even Soul of the Harvest instead. I would really like to see some more "grindy" elements in the deck though. Drawing and casting 1 card per turn is rough when your overall gameplan is to simply turn creatures sideways.
With respect to the mana base, I would personally play with a small number of Kessig Wolf Runs and Gavony Townships. You have a lot of cheap, aggressive creatures in there and those kinds of cards are terrible topdecks later on. Lands such as these can help mitigate that weakness. Don't run 4 of each but say 2 Gavony and 2 KWR or 2:1 or something seems like it could help you out.
Okay thanks. I really like the Fauna Shaman, Taurean Mauler, Lurking Predators, the 2 colorless lands, and especially Soul of the Harvest. It has trample, and gives you the ability to draw cards pretty easily. Plus it has a pretty high power too. I really like the cards you posted that let you do something whenever an opponent casts a spell (like Forgotten Ancient and Lurking Predators) because it almost makes the opponent regret casting a spell since I could turn it into an advantage for me.
One thing that I kind of like to do in RW is play Godo, Bandit Warlord alongside Stoneforge Mystic to find Batterskulls. Godo always gives 2 combat phases but he only untaps Samurai. That's not a problem if your dudes have vigilance though. So yeah, Godo puts B.Skull directly into play and allows it to attack twice. Pretty sweet!
Oh, PS, consider adding singletons such as Shattering Spree and Allay as answers to artifacts and enchantments. They're a bit slow but I mean if games drag on then they become pretty invaluable. And like, you can always just fire them off if needed.

My playgroup: four people total.
We use the Legacy B&R list.
My meta consists of combo, control and some aggro / midrange decks.
My group uses proxies, so budget is not an issue. Because of this, things can get out of hand.
I don't think that I ever have nor do I believe that I ever will but I mean I think that it would be fine in many cases. It really depends on how big your meta is and how fast your games are. If people like to sit back and do nothing and if there's like 3-4 of them then PA seems pretty good.
What I don't like doing is spending too much time playing cards that have no immediate impact on the board. I don't want to ramp out a PA and LP and die to people who play dudes and turn them sideways. Since LP is just such a back-breaking card it's usually my 6 drop of choice and so I'd rather have my 5 drop be a "Thragtusk-esque" creature (such as Vorapede) that gives me a lot of immediate board presence. Like, I want something that people can't just Wrath/spot removal away.
This is why I hate spot removal and weenies in multiplyer. It's so, so, so easy to build decks that leave them drawing actually dead. That's why all of my lists focus on ramp, incremental card advantage, card draw, scaling threats and resilient threats.
