Description

Budget mono-green hexproof.

If you like this deck do not forget to upvote.

Start with small hexproof creatures like Gladecover Scout and Slippery Bogle and make them big using other spells and enchants. Silhana Ledgewalker is partially unblockable and Dungrove Elder is continuously growing as game progress for just which makes him an insanely powerfull creature in the mono-green deck.

Spider Umbra and Boar Umbra are great for their totem armor ability which, among others, helps to keep your creatures alive against anoying abilities like deathtouch. Blanchwood Armor can turn any creature in this deck into threat and Rancor is here to add a trample to overcome a horde of small blockers.

Increasing Savagery makes your creatures big but cannot be as easily destroyed as enchants and its flashback can easily lead to a winning condition during late game.

Burst of Strength can surprise an oponent with an unexpected blocker but it can be replaced by Primal Bellow that works as an instant Blanchwood Armor.

Prey Upon is a great green removal and it can be replaced with more costly but instant speed Pit Fight.

Last but not least, Hunter's Insight in combination with big creatures can lead to a huge card advantage in mid/late game.

All comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.

I'm curious, why aren't you running Slippery Bogle 4x mainboard? He's green and can be played on turn 1, as opposed to the ledgewalker.

Thank you for the comment. Originally, I had 4x Slippery Bogle in the mainboard but I wanted to test Silhana Ledgewalker out. However, it looks it is better to play a creature on T1 so I will probably switch it back.

I like this deck alot it looks really solid. The only mainboard thing would be that I like rancor better than primal bellows here so maybe +2 -2. Your sideboard is a mess and its only at ten tho. Idk how much of a budget youre on but anyway. You're gonna need graveyard hate, Relic of Progenitus or at least Tormod's Crypt, Scavenging Ooze would be best tho. Creeping Corrosion is good for afinity, also Ratchet Bomb. Beast Within is a great way to get rid of bad stuff, it seems inefficent but its one of greens only instant speed answers to alot of things. Thrun, the Last Troll is great in matchups against those slimy blue players tho its not that cheap.

+1 from me, this deck definitely looks fun. There are 2 problems I can see you facing with this deck:

  • you only have 2 Rancor that grant you trample, the only form of evasion you have... it may be best to include more evasion (either more cards that grant trample, there's Larger Than Life from Kaladesh, or you could put back in the Silhana Ledgewalker
  • the other concern is you only have Spider Umbra to deal block fliers

The current deck is quite vulnerable to decks swarming you (they can block with 1/1's all day long) or fast flier decks.

Thank you for all of your suggestions, I like most of them and decided to implement them in this deck even though they will increase the budged.

This deck can get rid off the fliers also by Prey Upon or currently sideboarded Beast Within.

I like your twist on standard mono-green stompy. This looks fun!

Why aren't you playing Asceticism? That is one of the most trolly hexproof cards in magic because it can regen creatures that get killed, even in cases where hexproof is removed by stuff like Polymorphist's Jest or Sudden Spoiling

My recommendations: I would go up to 22 forests, and you have alot of power but no real way to use it, so I would recommend more ways to give your creatures trample. Other than that, I like the look of it! +1 from me

How about Aspect of Hydra. I would say you have good enough devotion and it is definitely cheap enough

Primal BellowSame thing

Mistcutter Hydra as a lategame option against U control?

Thrun, the Last Troll as already stated is great vs blue. great in general actually.

I would splash in white for some cards like Ethereal Armor

Thank you all for your suggestions.

In my opinion, I do not think that Witchstalker is that necessary for sideboard since it still can be countered. Same thing for Asceticism, which is quite mana expensive for this agro deck.

Sgt.Pickles I have play-tested this deck quite a lot and 20 Forrests seems quite fine for me. On the other hand, I was forced to run Rancor 4x in the mainboard plus I also put in Silhana Ledgewalker, which is more agressive than Troll Ascetic.

I prefer Burst of Strength which can surprise an oponent with an unexpected blocker rather than use Aspect of Hydra or Primal Bellow.

I always liked hydras so I put Mistcutter Hydra in the sideboard against blue controls. Thrun, the Last Troll is really amazing, unfortunatelly, it is not suited that well for my budget deck.

The idea of this deck is to run it Mono-Green so other colors are out of debate. TappedOut is full of GW hexproof decks, I wanted to created something different and unique in its own way :)

Speaking of evasion, maybe some Treetop Bracers? Even creatures with reach can't block a creature with this (only real flyers) and it gives another +1/+1.

How about Eyes of the Wisent against blue. It's kinda of like an enchantment form of Voice of Resurgence

Sundering Growth doesn't do anything for you. You are better off running Natural State, Nature's Claim, etc

Sylvan Caryatid and Birds of Paradise should be in here for more ramp this deck really just need to hit a bigger hexproof guy faster and load him up with enchants
