Here are the 3 phases to how this deck works.


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


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.


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.


Arbor Colossus + Corpsejack Menace

Colossus of Akros + Corpsejack Menace

Corpsejack Menace + Kalonian Hydra

Arbor Colossus + Kalonian Hydra

Colossus of Akros + Kalonian Hydra

Colossus of Akros + Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

Updates Add

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?
