Like the format of this page. No matchup notes? I'm getting the rest of my mono green deck together and I'm taking some notes from your deck. Why not just play the cheaper version of platium emperion Elderscale Wurm? Then you wouldn't have to fumble around with the combo. Why not just main anger of the gods in place of bonfire, freeing up two more spots in the side?

Hey there Drkuhn, thanks for the comment!
I posted an FNM result from last Friday just now, so you should take a look at that.
If you are not on a budget for your mono green deck, I'd highly recommend adding red for Blood Moon, as it can sometimes read 'You Win the Game' against some opponents.
My reasoning for not playing Elderscale Wurm is as follows: the wurm always is cast for 7 (three of which is Green, which sometimes matters) and doesn't actually stop life drain effects and such. Platinum Emperion simply shuts down any conventional ways of winning. In addition, the Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion combo is cast for 4 mana and only needs one card in hand, Madcap Experiment. This allows me to cast it on turn 2, unlike turn 4-5 for the wurm.
Anger of the Gods hits my mana dorks also, and costs double red. I would rather get a sometimes-bonfire-for-x=7 in the main than always 3 to everything.
Thanks again for the input!

Why not use trinisphere? You can have a possible soft lock on turn 2 if you go first. I run a deck which is a little simpler, but I'm always looking to improve it.

Dren_Nas: If you take a look at the list, I am running one in the sideboard. The thing is that the card is fairly useless in the mainboard and a terrible topdeck. I prefer it in the side against Storm and stuff.
