Heal your Monkey Idol when it takes damage to create an infinite supply of monkeys and level Gangplank quickly. Use Soraka, Fortune Croaker, and Guiding Touch to draw cards until you can find one of your two win conditions, which are Star Spring or a leveled Gangplank.

    I think a lot of people are sleeping on Grandfather Rumul. These decks can easily last to turn 8, and he provides such a board swing when he enters. Giving Soraka or Gangplank 4 extra health is so crazy strong. I'd cut your copies of Shakedown for him. 

    I am also wondering what Gangplank does for your deck. The barrel can be bad for you, because doesn't it mean your Monkey Idols and Fortune Croaker-type cards will deal extra damage to themselves? You also don't have very many ways to deal damage to the enemy Nexus directly to trigger Gangplank and Citrus Courier. I'd recommend you play Jack, the Winner because he deals self-damage and damages the enemy Nexus. You might also want to play Lounge LizardBADCARDNAME for the same reason. Stargazer can also enable you to deal direct Nexus damage.

    Edit: Upon further research, you will damage your units more, but it won't destroy the barrel if you do so.

    I think Broadbacked Protector is not a good card because you already have healing that also heals your Nexus, and you already have better and cheaper self-damage cards. Starshaping might also be worthy of a cut. Healing five for five mana is pretty bad, but those high cost Celestials might be a thing this deck needs to win the game.

    Otherwise, this seems pretty cool! I hadn't thought to use an aggressive healing deck with Citrus Courier, so this is a novelty!
