Here's my list I forgot to link in my previous comment: Mono-Green Modern Stompy

I forgot to mention a few things:

  1. Scavenging Ooze has really good synergy with Avatar of the Resolute.
  2. Feed the Clan out of the SB is huge vs Burn. 10 point swing almost guaranteed. I run 2, but 3 is arguable.
  3. Damping Sphere helps slow down this deck's problem...unfair decks (Tron, Storm, etc...). Let's be real. I don't play this in competitive formats as it would go 0-5 at any FNM.

If you'r play Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and you want devotion to green Burning-Tree Emissary is pretty good. Maybe play Rancor to give trample. Strangleroot Geist has undying. I feel like Voyaging Satyr is too slow so maybe less of him. Avatar of the Resolute is good. If you'r playing Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for devotion put a play set of it in other wise I would play Treetop Village in its place.

Hello there!

For better use of Avatar of the Resolute you could really change the play set of Kalonian Tusker for a set of Barkhide Troll, which is a stronger creature in itself (possibility of hexproof) and helps your counters plan.

Great deck man, keep it up!

Obstinate Baloth is a sideboard card against discard decks. Gearhulk I would avoid. Obliterator is strong but requires a deck to be heavily built around him so i’d avoid.

My suggestion would be to worry less about the heavy hitters and go more for those value-gains. If you’re going down the Winding Constrictor and/or Hardened Scales route (which seems strong), then you probably just want lots of lower-costing creatures that can become monsters in their own right.

Scavenging Ooze nets you a big creature, life, and grave disruption

Tireless Tracker gives you cards while he gets swole (you’ll want loads of fetches though)

Rishkar, Peema Renegade gives you counters, and enough flexible mana to abuse stuff like Collected Company, if you wanted.

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar might be useful as a 2-of, giving you a lot of power when followed up by Avatar of the Resolute (though i think the above-mentioned options are better than this one)

As Xica has already mentioned, your point-of-difference over hardened scales decks is your colouration in black - where you want to be running hand disruption and killspells. Outside of that, you should be looking for fast, efficient killers that can thrive in such a resource-deprived boardstate. Don’t try investing in high-cmc cards to do this if you can avoid it.

Red_X Those are some pretty strong suggestions! I've got to agree that the Barkhide Troll is a pure upgrade to the Kalonian, and I'll 100% be trying it along with the Avatar of the Resolute to see how it interacts. As for the others, I have my own reasons and reservations about swapping out the powerhouses and the +1/+1 stuff (Mainly because it just has not been kind to me in the past) but I will probably give it a try or two just to see how it goes. Who knows, maybe it'll be a hit.

Also, thanks for letting me know about Great Sable Stag I had no idea it was a card.

I'd throw in some Pelt Collector or Experiment One depending on your definition of budget. You've got a bunch of 1 drops, but only 3 creatures to play on turn 1 in an aggro deck, which slows you down a lot if you aren't running elves. If you do add them, Avatar of the Resolute would be a good addition if it's in your budget. Kessig Prowler  Flip or the mana dork elves would be the cheaper option and still speed you up. Barkhide Troll is a strict upgrade to Kalonian Tusker for the same price. Great Sable Stag is a pretty good anti control card for your sideboard, since their gameplan is to counter and kill everything you play. Like the deck overall.

Braingamer yea, Avatar of the Resolute seems like a super sweet idea. There's already an entry under "costumization" and you should probably try it out. I've found that I often overextended when playing this card and that without haste or flash it is just a sitting duck for a turn just so it can attack on the next. Yasova Dragonclaw admittedly has similar problems but it also serves as a mana sink to disable deathtouchers, first strikers and hatebears.
