This is epic! Looks like Wall of Blossoms isn't modern legal, replace with Wall of Roots maybe? And why not run a fourth Doubling Chant? You might want to use some more win conditions like Khalni Hydra and Primordial Hydra. Good luck!

Well, three recommendations.

  1. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is perfect for this deck. Swap 4 forests out for this andyou wont regret it.

  2. Natural State is more a sideboard card, since large numbers of decks dont have any enchantments or Artifacts, but the ones that do you want to be able to swap this in for.

  3. Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl is one of those combos that is huge for most mono-green decks. If its in your starting hand, youll have 4 extra mana on turn two for casting some of your bigger creatures. Not as much synergy with Khalni Hydra, but worth the price

Yo, if youre making just TONS of extra mana... Hydra Broodmaster might not be a bad idea! Just a thought. Also, Khalni Hydra

Understandable, I admit I slightly misread Khalni Hydra. I also found that Ghalta is a consistent turn 4 and doesn't even use up all of your turn 4 mana in most cases. I found one more card I would consider for this deck and that is Beast Within Since it destroys permanents it should help in a lot of matchups against things like Tron, Affinity and even Eldrazi. who cares if they get a measly 3/3 when you destroy a Tron land or a Lilianna or even a Karn

Thanks for the suggestions. The reasoning behind no Mistcutter Hydra is it lacks the above curve stats the other creatures have. It will always pack one less power and toughness than the amount you pay for it, and cards like Steel Leaf Champion pack much more value and a quicker finish. Khalni Hydra wouldn't work too well in this deck because this deck isn't necessarily trying to generate a large amount of creatures but high-value hard-hitting creatures, so it's gonna cost four or five mana most of the time, and this deck is trying to win by turn four or five. As for Ghalta, Primal Hunger, I may have to test it out. This deck can get Ghalta down on turn four on a very consistent basis, which in any matches where the opponent doesn't counter or remove it, you get an easy turn five win. This deck already gets turn four and five wins though, so I don't know how beneficial it will be.

I've always loved the idea of Mono-Green Stompy in modern. May I suggest Khalni Hydra for quick finishes and Mistcutter Hydra for sideboard?

Mistcutter may seem like an odd choice but you wouldn't be investing too much mana into it mainly using it for that haste and blue immunity

Thrashing Brontodon for artifact/enchantment removal on decent sizable body?

Seems like the perfect list to include Rhonas the Indomitable in. Makes for a sweet early drop that still contributes to Ghalta's cost reduction even if you don't have another creature with power 4 or greater.

With all your big bois Ulvenwald Tracker makes for some nice, repeatable removal.

Scute Mob seems cute. Don't know how effective it'll actually be, but for a one mana investment it can't be that bad.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller to give Ghalta haste out of nowhere could make for some pretty explosive kills.

Polukranos, World Eater is a decent mana dump and early drop big boi that has a powerfully unique ability for green; killing swarms of dudes.

Might be a little expensive, but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds ramps you for stupid amounts of mana with Gishath out.

In a monogreen list, Nissa's Pilgrimage is often strictly better than either Kodama's Reach or Cultivate.

You might consider playtesting Khalni Hydra to see how often you can windmill slam it down onto the battlefield for low cost or even free.

Ripjaw Raptor is a swole creature for its cost and gives you card advantage in combat should your opponents decide to chump.

Emerald Medallion would probably be nice as a strange kind of ramp for green.
