Description

Welcome to my Deck! This is a Mono-Green Agro Stompy deck. I do NOT own this deck yet. I love suggestions and comments. Here's the break down.

Power Creature

Strangleroot Geist, Kalonian Tusker, Leatherback Baloth, Ground Breaker, Reverent Hunter. These are some OP creatures. Their only goal is to out power your opponent.

Pump Spells

Rancor, Aspect of Hydra, Vines of Vastwood. I play Rancor as a recurring pump spell and helps on devotion. Vines of Vastwood as protection. Aspect of Hydra might be the best card in the deck at times. Most of the time aspect gives a creature +7 on turn 4.

Other spells

Birds of Paradise and Collected Company. Birds of Paradise is a great ramp spell and contributes to devotion. Collected Company can hit every creature in the deck and most of the time hit 2 creatures. Coco is good in other agro match ups.

Sideboard thoughts:
Pithing Needle - stops Planeswalkers, equipment, etc
Display of Dominance - serves as both removal and counters targeted spells against the given colors
Bellowing Tanglewurm - very nice 'alpha-strike' effect for games with board stalls
Heroic Intervention - so good, I would probably run it in the mainboard. counter one board wipe, and that is probably game over..

Did you see the new cat-snake that got spoiled? It looks like it could work for this. Cat Snake!

Wow, I never thought of Bellowing Tanglewurm or Display of Dominance. I will add Heroic Intervention and Pithing Needle now but it seems like Display of Dominance is a narrow Heroic Intervention. And yes I did see the Cat snake. He is awesome and will go into my sideboard. Thanks for the help! One more thing, should a keep Collected Company or drop it?

I would definitely add Avatar of the Resolute.

Can I ask you why you are bothering with Birds of Paradise. Most of your creatures are relatively cheap, it seems like Birds of Paradise would be underutilized as solely a chump blocker. Experiment One may be a good fit here; devotion, and the potential to get very big, all while easily brought back from the graveyard. If you were to add some more expensive creatures I see Birds of Paradise being very useful (it is arguably the best ramp creature in magic), but as is it is largely ineffective and Avatar of the Resolute is a better option for blocking fliers anyway.

Also, you asked about dropping Collected Company. In the current deck setup you may have concerns regarding whether or not you draw enough creatures but as is, like in most decks, Collected Company has the potential to flood the board. Maybe drop 1 though and add another Vines of Vastwood, it's important to have tons of buff spells in stompy.

Also, Naturalize or Krosan Grip over Oxidize in the sideboard, for a little more mana you get so much more use.

Thanks for all these comments! First off I had birds so my plays could be one mana faster, it didn't work all to well though so I will add Experiment One. As for Avatar of the Resolute; it is so much better than Kalonian Tusker it will be added ASAP.

Yeah, I found that to be a problem when I was playtesting. Birds of Paradise was great early and then it slowly became redundant as the game went on. Also, you should run Choke in your sideboard, its every blue deck's nightmare.

See, I kind of disagree on the Birds. It does tend to get outclassed in the late game, but it can serve as a speedbump if needed. And even more importantly, it can get pumped up for massive flying damage to break ground stalls. I would love to swing with a 10/11 Birds!

shaistyone I guess it depends on opinion, I see a card that isn't being used to its full potential whereas you see potential in a different sense. Birds provides a powerful clock yes but in my opinion its always better to play with the end in mind if the early game hasn't panned out, which it can never be relied upon. I agree though that full agro could benefit from Birds of Paradise as an additional pump target and a clock. It all depends on whether or not you think you can win before turn 4 really.

I run a very similar deck and I think that you should make the following changes:

-4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - this card is great when you have a lot of devotion, but you dont need it in your deck as you will always play out your hand really fast with the top end at 4 mana and wont need the extra mana that you gain from this card. Its also an awkward draw when you need to always hit green mana turn 1, 2 and 3.

Replace With:

+2 Treetop Village - the best manland in green and is very useful target for a rancor which acts like a pump spell as it will return to hand when it changes back into a land.

+2 Forest - to get back to 20 lands


-2 Reverent Hunter - this can actually be killed before you get the counters with something like Lightning Bolt or Electrolyze

Replace with:

+2 Birds of Paradise - This creature is often hit with Path to Exile which grants you an extra land, its better to have creatures in your deck than lands and this is one way to have both.

You may want to consider these cards too:

Scavenging Ooze, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Eternal Witness, Predator Ooze, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Thrun, the Last Troll
