Elfless green (well, maybe one elf)

Commander / EDH Aggro Mono-Green



+1 if you like

If you want to give a suggestion, I ask two things:

  1. No elves. As much as I like elves, I want this to be devoid of elves.

  2. There is enough lands for the deck. I prefer the ramp which thins the deck. I've had suggestions to cut some ramp to add more lands but as I said above, I prefer the deck-thinning capabilities of ramp spells. In reality, this deck performs very well with 31 lands because you can't really get a perfectly random shuffle. Don't worry, I don't cheat. It's a simple fact that it's impossible to really shuffle randomly like a random generator such as the one used to shuffle the cards on this site's playtester. So, it may not playtest very well on here but it is spectacular in person. It's like the difference between porn and the real thing.

Have you considered adding Omnath, Locus of Mana ?

Do you think Somberwald Sage would have a place in this deck? It can be fragile but can help with drop big creatures fast.

Have you considered Primordial Sage, with that much land pull the only thing left to draw into is creatures which leads to more creatures

I'd suggest Thunderfoot Baloth over Roughshod Mentor because although the boost requires you're commander in play, I find the +2 bonus gives that bit of reach.

I hate to break it to you, but Chameleon Colossus is technically an Elf. Just sayin'.Maybe replace it with Heroes' Bane?

I find myself wondering why you don't have a Craterhoof Behemoth in your deck, as it's a wonderful finisher. Also, Praetor's Counsel is a lovely card for green!

I like the look of this list, I run a pretty similar list Omnath, Locus of Forests with a different commander in Omnath, Locus of Mana however i do sometimes switch to Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger depending on how competitive the envoronment is and how much of a dick i want to be at the time... I prefer Omnath though, he is just sweet. I also personally think more lands are needed. i playtested a few times and using the Vancouver Mulligan rules found that i was constantly having to mull for more lands, but depending on what your group does this could be the right number for you.

I Dislike Rites of Flourishing in your list as well as Heartbeat of Spring i would replace them with Exploration and Zendikar Resurgent not quite as good, but helping your opponents out is not something i like doing in EDH espeically with Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger i feel like you are just giving them more outs.

Suggestions from your maybeboard:

Blighted Woodland is really nice ramp (I run it in my mono-green) because it still produces mana the turn it comes in, but can ramp you when you get to it. Hydra Broodmaster is a favorite of mine because not only does it live up to "STOMPY!!!", but it can also be "STOMPY AND FRIENDS!!!!!". Also Sol Ring tends to be good in any deck, though green is less dependent on it I think your deck could benefit from it due to the higher nature of your curve.

All in all, a good decklist, +1 from me!

Thawing Glaciers guarantees a land drop every turn, thins your deck, and is a land. Also good for your landfall cards.

@Firebones675: I added and I'll try it out. It seems like it should work pretty well.

Have you considered Panglacial Wurm? You have all this ramp which searches your library, why not get a creature out of it too.

+1 because I was liking the deck then I read your description and died at the "It's like the difference between porn and the real thing". Lol

what about Into the North? I mean just turn 6-8 lands in your deck into snow forests and maybe even add some utility snow lands like Scrying Sheets that lets you scry for forests if you have all your forests as snow forests or even creatures if you add Centaur Omenreader for example!
