This is an updated version of Llanowar Hydra Cult (EDH), using Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury to lead elves into battle or ramp into giant monsters.

Mono green has limited removal (Beast Within and Song of the Dryads) and very limited control elements. You need to be as aggressive as your board state allows, swinging as soon as you have a big creature or buffs that gives your elves the advantage.

Getting as many forests on the board as you can makes Allosaurus Rider, Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer, and Strata Scythe huge. Your big mana payoffs are Genesis Hydra, Genesis Wave, and Lifeblood Hydra. Otherwise, with enough bodies and a buff like Overwhelming Stampede, Overrun, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, or Garruk Wildspeaker, you can get through.
