    Any good ideas to creates competitive deck with this planeswalker? I've achieved it now, and I really don't know how to start...

    Here's a deck I created in about 20 minutes of brainstorming - Kaya focus seems to be causing a lot of death, to both Greg's and your creatures.  So going for cheap - but effective creatures - that can easily trade out with even bigger threats is a great start.  Also going for a couple of creature token generators is a good idea as well...

    Creatures (3):
    Clarion Spirit (U)
    Mire Triton (C)
    Foulmire Knight (C)

    Spells (3):
    Desecrated Earth (R)
    Soul Shatter (R)
    Valor of the Worthy (C)

    Supports (4):
    Brightclimb Pathway (U)
    Throne of Death/Egon, God of Death (R)
    Shadowspear (R)
    Erebos, Bleak-Hearted (M)

    The idea is simple: maximum "glory" at a manageable cost.  While this deck is technically a controlling deck, you're also looking for opportunities to cast two cards a turn thanks to Clarion Spirit and Kaya's 3rd.  That way you're getting increased value from all of your cards while managing Greg's likely bigger threats.

    Mire Triton and Foulmire Knight are both highly underrated cards due to their low costs and weak stats.  What they both have is important: deathtouch and either berserker or defender.  This makes it easy to "trade" them for more expensive targets that usually require 2 or even 3 more turns to bring out.  They also combo well with Kaya's 1st ability for an easy target for a free 4/4 creature token after they "trade" with Greg's more expensive creatures!  Meanwhile Clarion Spirit allows for a stronger synergy with Kaya's 1st and 2nd abilities.

    Spells are focused on removing threats that your creatures cannot deal with easily - namely flying creatures and obnoxious supports.  Soul Shatter is a very efficient removal for either expensive creatures... or obnoxious vanguards.  Meanwhile Desecrated Earth can deal with obnoxious land supports (especially a certain Labyrinth that will demolish your creature tokens!) or force a discard and adjust the grid a little bit.  Valor of the Worthy is a nice fit for Kaya - another way to create those spirit tokens is always welcome, and it can allow the Triton and Knight to deal with smaller targets without needless "trading."  Also worth mentioning that the Knight can also go adventuring for 3 mana for card draw at the cost of 1 life - a very worthwhile consideration if you are low on cards... since that tends to happen from time to time with this deck at times.

    Supports is where this deck gets particularly nasty.  Because Kaya has a need for legendary cards (and none of our creatures fit the definition of legendary right away), we will need some legendary supports for this.  Erebos, Bleak-Hearted fits right at home with this deck - all that death going around means more cards for you and more debuffs for Greg's creatures should he go wide.  Of course, we're going to need some lifelink to recover from self-damage and that's where Shadowspear comes in.  The second benefit of stopping damage prevention and hex-proofed targets is always nice for a deck like this!  Brightclimb Pathway is a perfect fit since we definitely want more black and white gems on the board.
    Finally, we have our second legendary support: Throne of Death.  This hearld card grants us much needed card draw and the potential for Egon, God of Death to really boost Kaya's 3rd with even more cards going into your exile pool!  That and Egon is a token, meaning Egon can get buffed by Kaya's 2nd ability.
