Gaea's Revenge Discussion

Bane of Bala Ged if you think you'll have an opportunity to attack may be worth looking at
Gaea's Revenge as another beatstick they probably can't deal with
Plated Crusher comes with its own built in protection
Simic Sky Swallower would require a board wipe to remove
Sphinx of the Final Word would prevent them from countering your own spells

Love the concept! gota couple suggestions, figured I'll accordian them to keep from filling up the whole page.
Predator, Flagship is costly, but lets be honest - mono-green doesn't care about that. giving flight for troops to evade or block, anti-aircraft cannons, and the tractor beam to lift up enemy ground-pounders, this colorless removal engine is worth evey mana spent on it.
Arena + Combat step: Declare attackers. Before blockers, activate arena, Choosing one of your tapped attacking creatures. the creature picks a fight before blockers, potentially giving a 2-1 for you if they block afterwards, but otherwise taking out a blocker and still getting all their damage through.
Genesis is amazing for recusion, if that's your thing (I know it's mine, but not everyone elses), and it's a 3 drop if you hard cast it with Her fluffiness on the field.
Trolls of Tel-Jilad offers regen for your forces (or allies, in exchange for favors...)
Krosan warchief acts like a mini trolls of T-J for beasts, and reduces their cost as well. more a niche card, but worth mentioning if you end up going that route.
Weatherseed Treefolk is fragile, but returns to hand when killed.
Phytotitan is even more fragile, but returns for free
Masked Admirers is a card drawing chump blocker. while it doesn't get the cost reduction, it definatly will dish out the damage over a game with trades. and the card draw for ETB is icing on the cake.
Gurzigost is a wierd huge guy that smashes face, all for the low low cost of ... recycling your graveyard. oh no... /endsarcasm
Ulvenwald Hydra grows based on your land base, and fetches a land as an etb trigger. added bonus: has reach to deal with fliers.
Oran-Reif Hydra grows to monstrous sizes as the game progresses. not all that exciting, but cheap ($ wise)
Dungrove Elder is completely worth the G mana cost once you hit 4 lands, and will only get bigger as the game goes on.
Terra Stomper , Carnage Tyrant , Chameleon Colossus , Kodama of the North Tree , Kalonian Behemoth , Gaea's Revenge , and Ancient Ooze just do what they normally do with efficiency: smash. they aren't pretty or fancy, but they are cost efficient before your general's discount, so they smash hard for cheap.
Skysnare Spider has the two most important keywords for green multiplayer: vilgilance and reach
Hydra Omnivore lets you get damage through defenses of players by ignoring that player entirely and focusing elswhere.
Indrik Stomphowler and Conclave Naturalists might be good replacements for reclaimation sage, with you commander out they cost the same. Destructor Dragon acts the same on death, but hits planeswalkers and lands as well.
Woodfall Primus is a solid (abet later game) removal that returns to work again.
World Breaker acts as an exile, and is colorless to boot. added benefits are reach and recurrable.
Wickerbough Elder gets the cost reduction, despite being a 3/3 base when cast.
Wolfbriar Elemental lets you dump green into a token army of 2/2s if you need to spread out the love or create some chump blockers. quantity has it's own quality sometimes.
Vorapede is a undying buggy with vigilance for 3 when your general is out
Thornling is a solid all-round stomper that is hard to deal with, via indistructable and increasable toughness.
Thrun, the Last Troll is another hard to deal with threat: hexproof, uncounterable, and regenerate means not a whole lot can touch him.
Spearbreaker Behemoth can act as a duribility booster by giving indistructibility
Krosan Drover is a good card for the really expensive creatures, giving another cost reduction.
Ulvenwald Observer is a solid card-draw engine for the deck when things die
Nessian Game Warden lets you sift through your deck based on forests in play
Brooding Saurian is typically just a sideboard card against control matchups, but worth mentioning all the same.
Stone-Tongue Basilisk is a cheap ($ wise) little guy that can field-wipe an opponent if you time a swing right.
Kamahl, Fist of Krosa should go in every green deck that he can. this goes double for mono-green. Overrun as an repeatable instant? check. wrath countermeasures? Living Plane that only hits opponents for G per land. totally worth it.

triproberts12 Thanks for advice. While I've rolled the deck out last time, I was intended to update it with a new cards I've managed to get, but later I forgot. Now it should be updated. By sheer luck got two shocks in draft. Now working on getting the third one. Now there are only 33 lands. Can't remember when exactly, but I'll add more lands later. Also I'll update maybeboard with more cards, that I have in my posession.
Talking about those self-milling cards, I thought about them, but I allways do it with an unease. I can reliably use only creature cards from the graveyard. And often I'm getting my counterspells, manarocks, enchantments, everything but creatures. Don't really know, what to do with it, apart from putting a lot of looting creatures instead of some non-creature card-draw. One of the main problems is, indeed, a gameplan of "I'll mill(maybe) some opponents, hijack some good creature from their graveyard(maybe) and we'll see from there". Working on acquiring Putrefax (nobody in my lgs carries one in binder, because it's a bulk) and doing fast infect/commander damage with it, Gaea's Revenge and such. But lately started to thinking about using Tasigur instead of Mimeoplasm for a while.

Sort your grammar out por favor. Es muy irritante. Pero yo penso que su deck es muy efficiente. I think you need to take out Vorinclex before our entire group hates you out of the game (preators need to be hated out anyway) and maybe add in a Hydra Omnivore if you wish to continue to be Mr. Evil Number 2 (Nick has Number 1, sorry). You might want to consider Gaea's Anthem and Gaea's Revenge . It also won't hurt to add Petalmane Baku . It is cute but can be quite dangerous.

Would a couple Flagstones of Trokair be worthwhile? Because of the wording, you can get your shocklands after upticking Vraska, Golgari Queen. Obviously the problem is that Flagstones of Trokair isn't fetchable, and is legendary.
I'm curious as to your reasoning for Captured Sunlight. Of course it has the possibility to hit a free kill spell, but it can't hit Vraska, Golgari Queen and it only gains you four life by itself. Wouldn't more Kitchen Finks be a better replacement here since it would be another good fodder trigger for Vraska's uptick? And unless it is Path to Exiled, it also gains you four life.
Do you really think you need four Qasali Pridemage mainboard? It seems like 2 or 3 of them can be in the sideboard against decks that don't use rely on artifacts or enchantments heavily.
You have A LOT of graveyard hate in the forms of Scavenging Ooze, Dryad Militant, Relic of Progenitus, and Surgical Extraction. Something to consider would be to buckle down on one type of graveyard hate that does everything you need. Maybe Grafdigger's Cage or Leyline of the Void if you have the budget for it. Relic of Progenitus is really good as well, maybe just up it to four to make room for other stuff.
Lastly, I have many friends that get great use out of either Gaea's Revenge or Carnage Tyrant in the sideboard against control. Hexproof and uncounterable are just major powerhouses that control tends to not be able to deal with (admittedly miracles can deal with them a little easier with Terminus). Choke is definitely great if it lands, but that's a big "if" with control.

Gaea's Herald I think should stay in. Compared to Prowling Serpopard, it's 2 cmc, which means its a turn 2 drop along with Rhys. I can also tutor for it a lot easier with Birthing Pod than compared to Prowling, as I only have 3 other creatures with 2 cmc. It's also revived by Elvish Soultiller.
You're right about Gaea's Revenge. It's an 8/5 for 7, but if I could play that, I'd much rather play Omnath for 5/5 to make it 12/12 (or more) the next turn. Or just play Protean Hulk. There's not much value there.
I feel the same about Avenger of Zendikar, though if I play him when I'm losing and don't have many counters out, I'd probably win.
Autumn's Veil should probably be kept. Some guys in my playgroup are running Esper...
