Description

Here are the 3 phases to how this deck works.

Builders

Here we utilize Elvish Mystic, Sylvan Caryatid, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Karametra's Acolyte to get us a lot of mana, very quickly.

Backbone

In this area of gameplay we try and drop Arbor Colossus first and foremost due to his huge boost to green devotion. Then Corpsejack Menace, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Kalonian Hydra, and Colossus of Akros as soon as is possible after that.

Beatdown

In this final stage we use the excessive amounts of green devotion to grow your Colossus of Akros from a 10/10 to a 20/20 (or 30/30 w/Corpsejack Menace) and swing for huge amounts of damage and then sacrifice him with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord to make your opponent lose all their life. If that wasn't enough, you should still have a few hulking Arbor Colossus (Colossi) hanging about or Kalonian Hydra to finish up the job.

Perfect game (I think...?) looks like-

T1: Forest, Elvish Mystic

T2: Swamp, Sylvan Caryatid, Elvish Mystic

T3: Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Karametra's Acolyte

T4: Drop Arbor Colossus without using the Acolyte and one Mystic, then tap the Acolyte for 7 mana, and drop Colossus of Akros

T5: Drop Corpsejack Menace or Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Monstrous the Colossus of Akros swing with him for 30 damage, or swing for 20 then sacrifice for 20.

Combos

Colossus of Akros + Corpsejack Menace

Corpsejack Menace + Kalonian Hydra

Colossus of Akros + Kalonian Hydra

Colossus of Akros + Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

I had taken apart this deck recently but I miss it and want it back for a few reasons:

  1. Temple of Malady (finally)

  2. I have too many B/G cards to not use them.

  3. Green Ramp + Pinch of Black = Worst Fears

My question now is how/where can I fit in Worst Fears to bring the worst fear upon my opponent?

play tested this against my Bant for life ! and this won 1 game by throwing a 30/30 Arbor Colossus at me :D

also i never realized how good Karametra's Acolyte could be, am going to have to give it a serious look in my mono green decks from now on

Yeah, it manages to do stuff like that. Sometimes has a hard time against removal but that's what Golgari Charm is for.

Ramp dat green do!

I wouldn't classify this deck as "rock" by any definition, but I'm digging the mono-green devo ramp. Think you could throw in a Khalni Hydra for rude amounts of devotion, or is that too much of a mana-dump?

Being that this deck went modern now you may want to look at Birds of Paradise as well as Noble Hierarch for the mana ramp; taking out Elvish Mystic and Sylvan Caryatid or in addition to. Instead of Nylea, God of the Hunt maybe look at Primal Rage and Surrak, the Hunt Caller seems a little out of place but I understand the haste aspect. Maybe look into Hammer of Purphoros or Fervor if you don't mind splashing red or if you're going to put in Birds of Paradise. You're deck is pretty cool and with the major amounts of mana you may be able to produce these lesser mana cards you can probably get out a lot faster.

Also Woodland Cemetery are good cards to have 4 copies of being most of your lands count as either a swamp or forest. Also Garruk, Caller of Beasts Seems a little slow for this deck (not mana wise but his abilities) have you looked at Garruk Wildspeaker or Garruk, Primal Hunter? Also Go for the Throat is a good removal card instead of Hero's Downfall and maybe take out Golgari Charm for more Abrupt Decay or to put Courser of Kruphix in the mainboard. These seem like decent ways to speed your deck up if it helps.

Awesome xD +1, Glissa, the Traitor ???

I see you don't like red, haha its my favorit color :) Anyways I would for that reason like you to take a look on one of my decks which doesn't run red, but each other color... Therefor you might be an expert ;)
