This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking

The Kitty

This is Sassy. She's extremely sick right now, with what vets think is Toxoplasmosis - but they need to do an MRI and bloodwork to be sure, and she also needs hospitalization because she isn't eating. :(

I need help paying these vet bills, so the above cards and everything in my binder are for sale! Make me an offer on things in my binder, and please comment if you message me because I don't always get notifications. Thanks!

I'll ship under $15 in a PWE unless otherwise specified. For >$15 or if you want tracking, please add $3 to your total. Payment through Paypal upfront - I have a long history of successful trades on here.

Edit: I can also take a few commissions for alters. I can do simple replacement art (adding details) and border extensions with high-quality acrylics. Example, example. Have some more recent stuff somewhere, too. Email me to chat about prices & details!

This is a pretty cheap deck, but simply getting a powerful card like Gaea's Cradle or some early ramp like Green Sun's Zenith + Dryad Arbor and other tutors like Natural Order would make it a whole lot better. (And in some cases not cost too much) Another very good card to consider is Glacial Chasm because it can keep you protected while you ramp and can sacrifice it and secure the win.

Cool deck. +1
Any reason you're not running Ghost Quarter over Wasteland . Naming Wasteland with Pithing Needle is a good piece of tech as not many people run Ghost Quarter . I've seen Turbo Depths decks usually run it that way with Pithing Needle MB over Abrupt Decay . Unless you're seeing a lot of Chalice of the Void in which case Abrupt Decay is a must have. (You could probably get away with 2 MB if that's the case.)

Dryad Arbor might be better off in the SB for another Sylvan Safekeeper . Unless there's a Pox player in your meta.

For me, it has to be Dryad Arbor . While most people don't enjoy cards that break the rules and avoid removal or counterspells, something about playing a land that is also a creature is just so cool to me.

What generally disliked card do you still love despite a general dislike from the community?

I'm glad my two cents worth could help your decision. I didn't realize how good Rhythm would be in Thromak until holding a freshly pulled copy in my hand, wondering if any of my decks wanted it. As soon as I thought of the hungry hellion, I was super stoked. I haven't actually gotten to play with the deck since adding it, but I expect it will be useful.

Earlier suggestions included effects that steal opponents' creatures; I run several myself. However, all I run are sorceries ( Insurrection , Mass Mutiny , Mob Rule ) and an instant ( Grab the Reins , which also can also be a second Fling ). Captivating Crew sounds like a great idea, and one I might try to work into my build. Other creature - based options include Zealous Conscripts , Conquering Manticore and Molten Primordial , but they're much more mana intensive. Since you're thinking about using elves to ramp anyway, this might not be an issue for you.

While searching up creatures that stole those of your opponents, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor popped up. I think this may be a card for us both to consider, as it gives creatures upon death and plays nicely with trample.

I second the suggestion of Awakening Zone and From Beyond as repeatable sources of mana or sac fodder, as need be. I run both, though I have no targets for the tutor effect on the latter. (Well, I mean, Blisterpod , technically, but I don't foresee myself searching that up too often...).

I hadn't thought about turning lands to creatures so they can feed Thromak, but that's something I'll have to look into. I run Dryad Arbor for that purpose; not sure why I didn't think about Living Lands , etc.
