How about a Fussires of Golei (the earthquake card)?  I can see you got the Behemoth Groundbreaks, but if you need to flip a field and you have don't have 4 mana for the beast, your screwed.

I think you should add 3-4 creatures of each element. if you go with 3, that's 12 creaures. you could then fill in the rest with bioliths. Because, as it stands, fast cheap creature decks are going to hurt you. You may also try to add in more mana maker creatures.

You have some mana expensive cards. I'd add a few cheapies in case you don't get your mana makers out there. Also, Fissures of Goghlie is a must. Claire Wil's Banner is good to have too and has saved my skin more than a couple of times.

Add Seer Vizak's Calamity. And get rid of that golem, no reason for it to be in there. Maybe a couple more 1 casting cost creatures like green lycanthrope or tritonan ice guards. Otherwise seems pretty good, but it's biolith so you have to be prepared to not play a creature every turn.

just a few 1 cost creatures (I favor the lycanthropes) will help get and stay on board. I think you should leave the golem in. He's an excellent occupier early in the game and tough to take down without some serious fire power.

You definitely need more cheap creatures in that deck.  Also, 8 spell cards is a bit much.  Get rid of the Mesmer Errands and the Dungeon of Ten Tyrants.  Also thin out your bioliths a bit.  Its ok, to go with a theme, but don't overdo it.  As other's have said, throw in at least one Fissures, and a bunch of 1 mana cost summons.  Just about any of the 1-cost summons will work, as they all have their uses.  The only one I'm not too crazy about is the Monk Elder, but even he's not terrible.

Thanks for all your help. Her is what I've done according to your recommendations..

*Green Lycanthrope x3
Skeleton Soldier x3
Novogus Golem x1
Juno Tree Haunt x1
Biolith Bomber x2
Biolith Stinger x1
Novogus Catapult x2
Morning Star Warrior x3
Biolith Ninja x1
Behemoth Groundbreak x1
Tino, Son of Scion x1
Dragoon Dragon Calvary x1

Juno Tree Haunt is too trick opponent into making a new Earth square to work with the catapults.

Thinking of replacing biolith bombers with stingers. Good Idea or bad?

I'd leave the bombers. They can hit almost anywhere and the are the perfect weenie killers.
