Aggressive Mammoth Discussion
15 hours ago
I started with Modern as my first format. My deck list was a lot like yours, huge CMC creatures and tons of 1 ofs.
So a good place to start is to ask yourself, how do I want my deck to win? Once you figure out what the main way(s) your deck will win, then you can focus your game plan on making that happen.
You really want consistency in your deck. Try picking cards as 4 ofs instead of singletons. If you wouldn't want 4 copies of a card in your deck then it probably isn't worth running at all. (Please note this is only a beginner strategy to get you started and later in your career of magic this logic will no longer imply.) So to give yo a real world example: because you have a lot of big converted cost dinos, a card like Llanowar Elves is a card you would want 4 of. It helps your strategy by enabling ramp for big Dinos to come into play earlier.
So lets start there.
Lastly you'll need some form of interaction. Almost every deck in modern will have some form of interaction. You don't have to completely stop the opponent, just slow their plans enough for your plan to happen. A good choice for your deck would be Lightning Bolt but in your case Lightning Strike could work as a budget replacement. At high levels the difference in mana cost is huge but as someone new, it'll do just fine.

Magic Duels games are much closer to draft gameplay than to most constructed formats.
Constructed formats have access to ways to deploy threats early - for example Awoken Horror and/or multiple Arclight Phoenix by turn 3/4/5.
These formats also have answers to deal with such threats, like Path to Exile .
Playing large creatures like Aggressive Mammoth that do very little, is a bad choice if you can play cards like Inferno Titan . Such decks also play cheap distruption and a miriad of cards that allow them to reach high mana productions early on.

That's an interesting take on the deck on this deck! I, personally, would consider moving Domri, Chaos Bringer into mainboard and instead moving Sunder Shaman into sideboard. Also you are lacking protection from fliers, other than the Lightning Strike in the sideboard. Does it feel like this deck is fast enough to outpower Izzet Phoenix or Mono Red with Rekindling Phoenix ? I would probably fit in a couple Crushing Canopy into sideboard and maybe Kraul Harpooner into mainboard. I see the Aggressive Mammoth doing a lot of work by giving the necessary trample, but in matchups vs Esper control or Nexus decks I would rather put Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma which gives every creature trample too! and +1/+1 if they are big and it only costs . If you even have means I would squish in a couple Carnage Tyrant somewhere since he is lower in price right now. Let me know what you think.

okay, here are some "win-cons" I found. you could just go for a big creature like Trench Gorger , Stormtide Leviathan , Aggressive Mammoth , Aurochs Herd , Carnage Tyrant , Child of Gaea , Cloudthresher , Essence of the Wild could be fun, Force of Nature is really big, Frost Titan , Grunn, the Lonely King , Guile , Hydra Broodmaster (this is one of my all time favorites since it was one of my first cards), Nessian Wilds Ravager , Sagu Mauler (a card I wanted to play for a long time but didn't have the right deck for it, but this seems a perfect fit), Terra Stomper (of course, a classic), Gigantosaurus , Primeval Force , Thornling or maybe Vorapede
yes, I went through almost every 5 and 6 cost minion in green and blue. I'm sure there are other cards that could win you the game out there. but this is what I found
you could also use something that is very evasive ofcourse. like Sun Quan, Lord of Wu or Archetype of Imagination . or something different like a combo with Deadeye Navigator , or counter things and make Draining Whelk really big.

Hi, I got the same idea and it is working quite well: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/uncountable-creatures/ I think you should include some healing like Pelakka Wurm to have a comeback against aggro decks. And you should think about Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma instead of Aggressive Mammoth , he has some great synergies and he will boost most of your creatures in the same way or even better. ;) Also 4 Nikya of the Old Ways seem to be too many... there will be times when the second or even third one will be stuck in your hand, because your opponent won't remove it... I got this problem with 3 of them sometimes. -.-

There are already Elephants, such as Aggressive Mammoth , but I’ll make another.
Other creatures with vigilance you control get +1+1

since its green i'd also include the Bow of Nylea and any trample mechanic like Aggressive Mammoth suddenly all your tokens deal deathtouch while your stronger creatures always deal max damage cause trample deathtouch is a bitch

Well yeah, but Omnath is not the biggest threat in the deck. His biggest threat is the fact that he can stack mana really. I am working on a deck with him and a ton of other really large mana heavy creatures, with ways of putting stuff in for either free or super cheap. You stack mana early game for a turn or two and you can either spend it, or swing for some mid damage with Omnath, then in second main you can throw down something like Woodfall Primus or a card I just got today which is Regal Behemoth. Add that in with a card that wouldn't be good in almost ANY other deck Early Harvest, especially if it's later in the game and you have a lot of basic land out which is the only lands in my deck is just basic forests than you can really REALLY crank him up and either maul stuff down and trample or cast another really big critter..I dunno...Aggressive Mammoth? I got one of those in there. For this deck it's a solid choice. You can also do stuff like instant spells. Maybe, MAybe? have an Avoid Fate or similar spells sparsely in the deck to add some armor. Plus I also keep all of the totem enchantments in here too ( green ones of course ), so Snake, Bear, Boar, spider. Those also come in handy too. I know he is not the best commander out there because he is mono green, but I feel he can be competitive really easily with the right enchantments and fatties to back him up.
