Description

Hear this... Men of the World.

I have tolerated... your species... for long enough.

Your cruelty... and your greed... and your insufferable arrogance...

You blight the soil... and poison the rivers.

You raze the vegetation... till you cannot... even feed... your own kind...

A... and then you boast... of man's triumph... over nature.

Fools.

If nature were to shrug... or raise an eyebrow...

Then you should all be gone...


Here's a pet project I've been working on while other EDH lists have come and gone.

I started playing EDH with the Preconstructed Freyalise deck from Commander 2014. Tribal Elves seemed to strike a chord with me, and I tested Ezuri as a secondary General. Digging through the lists of Mono-green commanders I stumbled upon Seton, Krosan Protector .

It also happens that I am particularly fond of DC's Swamp Thing, specifically the run by Alan Moore. From my appreciation of both mono-green and that delightful series that I regard as sheer art, comes this EDH deck - my love letter to both.

Sifting through the endless supply of decklists our community has at our disposal, I was able to piece together a deck that truly feels like the wrath of a forest, and all its inhabitants.

Seton's ability to make can be accessed at instant speed, which immediately puts it above Ezuri and a tribal Elf build. Incorporating Druids and Elves into the mix can drastically accelerate this deck so that we generate infinite mana swiftly. This is done primarily through the equipment Umbral Mantle and a creature like Karametra's Acolyte. Essentially, we need the creature to tap for more than the cost to activate the untap ability of either equipment, so that we can net mana. Entwining Tooth and Nail for Ezuri, Renegade Leader or Kamahl, Fist of Krosa act as our infinite mana outlets, or we could simply do the standard Craterhoof Behemoth and Avenger of Zendikar. Another possible outlet is to Grab Walking Ballista with an Entwined Tooth and Nail, shooting the table for lethal. If all else fails, Staff of Domination is another great outlet for all the mana we're generating.

With cards like Metamorphosis , Natural Order, Birthing Pod or Eldritch Evolution we can compartmentalize our deck, tutoring for our bigger combo pieces.

Green doesn't have much in the way of strong removal that other colours have, so we have to make use of the best. Beast Within, Lignify, Song of the Dryads, Naturalize, and Krosan Grip are the good at artifact and enchantment removal for any combo pieces, and flat out permanent destruction or manipulation any threats. Natural Selection tends to be forgotten, but it's the closest thing to Ponder Green has, not to mention it disrupts someone else. They Vamp Tutor, and we shuffle their card right back? Yes please.

A dumb fun combo: Argothian Elder + Maze of Ith = Infinite Mana.

You do this as follows:- Assuming you have a forest in play, before attacking float a forest- Attack with the Elder, and use the Maze to untap it- Tap the Elder to untap your forest, and the Maze- Repeat ad infinitum

The trick is that the Maze does not remove the Elder from combat, and can therefore be repeated as many times as possible. The problem is this can only be done during combat, so we need to think of a way to utilize this mana at instant speed.

How about something like Helix Pinnacle? enter image description here
