we got rampant growth Prime titan and Viridian Emissary all search lands out of your deck. Besides that innistrad should bring some ramp unless they intend it to change how green is played in standard.

Don't forget about cards like Llanowar Elves and Birds of Paradise. They funticion similarly to mana ramp, and you can even use something like Green Sun's Zenith to get them out. I'm saying this assuming you mean Mana Ramp as any way of generating mana faster than the standard 1 land a turn. While Primeval Titan, Rampant Growth, and Viridian Emissary are the only cards that pull lands from the deck to the field, there are other ways of getting ahead of the curve like I have previously mentioned. You could also try using the mana myrs to get ahead of the curve, but it isn't recomended since there are usually better things to do with your second turn than to drop a weak 1/1 creature just to increase your mana availability.

Just to update since the full spoiler's up now, we've got Avacyn's Pilgrim (G cost creature that taps for W) and Caravan Vigil (G cost sorcery that puts a basic land into play if a creature died this turn) from Innistrad. Not much from there I'm afraid.
