Cool list. Voracious Wurm seems perfect as potential creature removal for Green.
Midrange works when you’ve got interaction; and you do (Primal Command, Scavenging Ooze, Domri, Voracious Wurm, Thrashing Brontodon, Ruric Thar, etc.)...and that’s all in your main deck!
Devotion can be built up fast or slow; all that matters is you build the deck to give you time to do it the way you prefer.
So during my testing with Cavalier I found that I really liked playing a creature with power 4 or Greater with Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner on the battlefield...so I made a list of creatures I wanted to test with. Voracious wurm is definitely one of them
The first one I really wanted to test; however, would pull double duty in the deck. It is Chancellor of the Tangle.
I have wanted to play this card for over a year (as the extra mana can be extremely busted and leads to more 4-mana on turn-2 lines.). Its not crazy powerful after it’s opening hand value; however drawing a card helps boost its potential (as well as trample via Garruk).
You’ll notice a very similar “core” (the Walker deck stays the same with about 10 cards changing ) but Chancellor speeds it up a bit.

EDIT - TESTING THUS FAR
I have been extremely impressed with Chancellor of the Tangle. Especially with the London Mulligan it is busted. It leads to silly turn-1's (which in this deck just snowball)
The last game I played, I went:
- Reveal Chancellor of the Tangle for
- Play Forest
- Cast Utopia Sprawl off of Chancellor mana
- Tap Forest for
- Cast Arbor Elf
- Cast Oath of Nissa (drawing Garruk)
- Play Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Tap Enchanted Forest
- Untap and re-Tap with Arbor Elf
- Cast Garruk Wildspeaker
- Tap Nykthos for 1-colorless mana
- Untap both lands
- Trigger Nykthos for X= 5 (6-total)
- Cast Acidic Slime Killing their land
The combination of Chancellor and Sprawl is bonkers with enough 1- and 2-drops...I can't say that my build is perfected/tuned yet; but the "Core" of the ramp package and Chancellor of the Tangle feels right (as does playing Kiora and Garruk with it).
I'll test more tomorrow and let you know the pros and cons I run into.
