Aggressive Mammoth

Creature — Elephant

Trample (This creature can deal excess combat damage to the player or planeswalker it's attacking.)

Other creatures you control have trample.

There isn't much of a difference, my understanding is that WotC prefers that formatting to avoid the confusion of whether the creature grants the ability to itself. Some creatures though do use the other formatting (Maelstrom Wanderer and Slivers for example). The functional difference is that Archetype of Aggression only has trample while it's on the battlefield, while Aggressive Mammoth has trample in all zones. This means Mwonvuli Beast Tracker would be able to search for the Mamoth, but not the Archetype.

Cards like Aggressive Mammoth and Marchesa, the Black Rose have always bothered me with the way their text is formatted. Would there any differences if either of these cards instead read “All creatures you control have trample/dethrone”?

If so, what? Thanks!

Rishkar's Expertise is worth including because you need draw and you have lots of cards 5 CMC or lower. It's great, I didn't know Expertise was down in price so much, only $2-$3. Expertise could replace Aggressive Mammoth since it's the same CMC. The trample Mammoth gives is fine, but you have better evasion sources here that go with the counter theme Abzan Falconer and Champion of Lambholt making Mammoth less needed.

See, the problem with specifically me suggesting cuts is that you and I seem to have much different playstyles. I am not big on Planeswalkers and like to keep my mana curve super low to the ground, especially with a mana hungry commander like Marath. I can tell you about objectively strong cards for your mana base though, and I tried to just do that.

If I were pressed and had to make suggestions; for just the first four sorceries I would say both 6-mana Ajanis, a basic Forest, and a basic Plains. For all 12 of my suggestions and in descending order from first card cut to last so that you can take any number and have my suggestions for cuts:

Ajani Unyielding


Ajani, Valiant Protector


Woodland Mystic

Zhur-Taa Druid

Domri, Anarch of Bolas

Druid of the Anima

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

Somberwald Sage

Incubation Druid

Alpine Meadow

Many of these other cuts are also ramp, but that is because your Land+Ramp number is pretty close to what I like after cutting the two Ajanis. Going with sorceries and artifacts will protect you a little better from sweepers since your mana base will be able to survive a Wrath of God and you would be more likely to be able to recover. The artifacts will still leave you weak to Austere Command, but you are less likely to be collateral damage.

Another switch I would just make straight up is Archetype of Aggression in for Aggressive Mammoth in keeping with me liking to keep a mana curve lower.

I'm going to differ from the previous comment by suggesting that your mana curve is way too high. Honestly, I think that you need some low-cost stuff in there to keep you alive in the early game and maybe deal some damage well before you need 5 mana to cast anything.

Cards you might consider:

Obviously, you wouldn't be able to add all of these without overhauling the entire deck, but it gives you something to think about.

Cards that you might consider cutting to make room for some of this:

And then perhaps reduce the number of Gnarlback Rhino, Garruk's Uprising and Season of Growth to 2 each.

Just my thoughts. Cheers!

You're telling me. I got so overwhelmed I actually got Battle Mammoth mixed up with Aggressive Mammoth, which is the card I actually wanted to suggest. Both are great, nonetheless.

It's kind of hard to get a somewhat streamlined mono-G stompy deck as there are just sooo many insane cards. Just look at Cragplate Baloth. That card is a ridiculous stompy-card, but it simply went completely unnoticed because of the flood of new cards and the amazingness of green.

With Saryth, I think it can be very beneficial to find ways to give your creatures trample. Since they will have deathtouch, this means you can assign only 1 damage to each creature blocking them and the rest to your opponent. Consider Primal Rage and Aggressive Mammoth.

Hey, Hello, Hiiii,

I'm looking to get into EDH for my playgroup and I don't wanna buy a precon since we agreed to build our own decks.

We're keeping it fairly casual so I'm not looking for something super competitive just something fun to take out to our games and eventually our lgs for edh night.

I'm looking for something with big dumb creatures like Apex Devastator, Aggressive Mammoth, Apex Altisaur or Craterhoof Behemoth and cards to cheat out big creatures and double my mana, that kind of stuff. Between one and three colors is really more my style, I'm not a fan of four and five color deck but definitely green is a must here.

If you guys suggest a few generals and a theme or tribe that meet up these kinds of criteria it would be awesome, I tried going on gatherer and edhrec but there's so many choices I got confused and I didn't know where to go for more specific infos.
