Dragon Blitz.

Description of deck by its author (quoted):
Green's best addition to Dragon Roost is its explosiveness in mana production. Mana-producing creatures like Birds of Paradise and Werebear combine with both “land-thinners” like Rampant Growth, Deep Reconnaissance, and Diligent Farmhand and enchantments like Vernal Bloom and Wild Growth to give you exactly one bazillion ways to quickly make dragons. If you dip heavily into green you also have a way to diversify mana, meaning that your Dragon Roost deck can use more than two colors.

Two other benefits from green exist as well. The first is that green loves using its gluttonous mana for big, beefy creatures. Pick your favorite and I'm sure it will fit in a Dragon Roost deck. The second benefit is a myriad of Fog cards that can buy you time. The best of these in Standard is probably Moment's Peace.

Yes, I know this deck has 22 land. It also has 37 cards dedicated to mana (he says defensively).
