+1 love the deck pretty close to my mono-green. Have you considered Burning-Tree Emissary or Experiment One ?

Voyaging Satyr + Market Festival + Hydra Broodmaster Trust me. It's leathal. And needed in this deck.

Hornet Queen would be a great card to consider.

It's good with Nissa's +1 but it's bad when actually trying to untap forests with her or cast Burning-Tree Emissary . I may go up to 2 but it's hard with also having 4x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Double shrine opening hands have to go back for mulligans when if they were forests you could run out an Elvish Mystic turn 1 and be golden.

July 28, 2014 10:25 a.m.

Stiggy, it's way better to use Voyaging Satyr + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Hydra Broodmaster or anything that has X cost that's good. Market Festival would only get out 6 mana if you had a voyaging satyr, whereas nykthos has gotten me over 40 mana floated with one voyaging satyr.

Stiggy says... #7

Ah yes that is better, kinda missed that, hahaha! But Spazik, please take out 2 or maybe even 1 Nykthos, 4 legendary lands are too much!

more Arbor Colossus less Deadly Recluse also this deck doesnt have enough trample i would go with more Nylea, God of the Hunt also run Witchstalker main board if you cant get a 3/3 hexproof out on turn 2 in this deck you probably should Mulligan to get an elvish mystic and honestly i dont like the idea of 4 Courser of Kruphix main board because there great early game but late game you want more things like Polukranos, World Eater or more Garruk, Caller of Beasts to be digging for the big creatures also i would run more Nylea's Disciple main board probably 2 because they are great cards also i dont see how helpful Burning-Tree Emissary sure early game its nice but late game you would rather be top decking a larger creature or using garruk to get a larger creature

Consider aspect of hydra it is brutal with green devo

July 29, 2014 7:14 p.m.

I think Setessan Tactics would at least be good sideboard. And Terra Stomper in the sideboard as well

Hatchman says... #11

Perhaps 1 copy of Soul of New Phyrexia(Sideboard) against heavy Removel Decks. and i recommend to cut one Polukranos and add one Courser(His effect is to strong)but anyway nice Deck +1 ;)

August 1, 2014 2:37 a.m.

+1 I love the variety!

August 7, 2014 8:33 p.m.

Spazik008 says... #14

There's 4x Chord of Calling .

andymushu says... #16

Do you find that games where you don't draw Chord of Calling are significantly worse with so many one-ofs? That's the main reason I went with less of a toolbox approach in my mono green devotion deck.

How well does Nissa perform in this shell? From my testing, her abilities seem a little redundant with so much ramp and big creatures in the deck already. I'm curious if your experience is different.

Spazik008 says... #17

The inefficiency due to "variance" that comes from having this many 1-of's is easily more than mitigated by the power of being able to Chord of Calling into the right creature, and being able to do so at the end of their turn at instant speed on top of that, or in the middle of combat.

Advocate says... #18

Chord of calling in this deck is like adding an unnecessary 3G to your creatures cmc. You would be better served by dropping the chords, +2 Genesis Hydra and +2 Kalonian Hydra. You should also seriously consider 2 Garruk caller of beasts.

Spazik008 says... #19

I just killed 2 Desecration Demon and a Stormbreath Dragon at Game Day today by Chord of Calling into Hornet Queen . Won Game Day.

Eldaver says... #20

I question why Mistcutter Hydra is not in here, as well as some more protective things like Archetype of Endurance or Shield of the Avatar .

August 10, 2014 1:13 a.m.

Spazik008 says... #21

there's 3x Mistcutter Hydra in the sideboard.

But I am digging the Archetype of Endurance suggestion.

TapThisGaming says... #22

+1 From me. Could you please check mine out and make some suggestions. Kinda similar to yours in that it ramps up to the big creatures. Jolly Green Giant-Mono Green

Spazik008 says... #24

I've got 2. Genesis Hydra into Genesis Hydra is all bad, and sometimes it just gets something crappy like an elf or a BTE. But 2 is good as an explosive late game play.

It's a very good card no doubt, but since I only use it late game I don't want a bunch in my opening hand.

freyhackbarth says... #25

why one yisan? it's kind of a build around. if you do play it you may have to change your deck significantly. I personally would take it out for another courser or another arbor colossus

Am I the only person who is going to comment on the lack of any Sylvan Caryatid ? Also, Rattleclaw Mystic allows for 6 Mana at T3, which is one more than the 5 from Caryatid.

In addition, I think there are too many 1-ofs, even in a toolbox deck approach. You should run 2-ofs on the important cards, especially in a tool-box.

-2 See the Unwritten

-1 Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

-1 Reclamation Sage

-1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

-1 Nylea's Disciple

-1 Elvish Mystic

+1 Hydra Broodmaster

+1 Arbor Colossus

+1 Courser of Kruphix

+4 Sylvan Caryatid

Reclamation Sage ? Am i The only one who dont understand is purpose? Y not Back to Nature instead?

September 11, 2014 6:47 p.m.

Advocate says... #29

Reclamation sage puts a body and devotion on the board while also answering an enchanment or enchantment creature. Also consider the 2 fetchland that can get forests, thins out the deck a little which helps prevent mana flood, can get double life triggers off of course in a turn and can be used to shuffle the deck at will if you dont want to draw that elvish mystic courser is showing on turn 4+

Heres my version with less fun-ofs and 0 chord: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mono-green-devotion-post-rtr/
