Fun deck description, looks like a blast to pilot!

Kessig Wolf Run recently got a reprint, so I think it'd fall into your budget! It's another way to get your damage in, not only in pumping your own creatures but also leaving up mana to pump up someone else's. Another feather in your cap for when you want to start ending the game.

You already have Genesis, so I would also maybe look at fitting a Spore Frog in there somewhere! I've been saved many a time by this card, and once you get Genesis online, you can have a soft lock on combat damage, with you being able to recur the frog. Can be frustrating for combat based decks to deal with!

Eternal Witness is another card that I wish was JUST a bit cheaper, it'd fit into your deck. Pairs really well with Kogla, the Titan Ape (Which you should for sure give a try to!). At a few bucks less expensive, the relatively new Timeless Witness could be a budget option, with it only costing 1 more mana but gaining eternalize. Both would allow you to continue to fetch bombs from the graveyard once the game gets long.

Battle Mammoth helps in dealing with decks that have a lot of targeted removal, and is a decent beater for cheap if foretold. The recently rotating out Thorn Mammoth is another card that I've seen put in work once it resolves! Just a few ideas I had after reading the deck!

(Just checked, Eternal witness also got a reprint, so it'd slide in in just under 3 dollars!)

Battle Mammoth may offer you some redundancy and card draw in place of a gargaroth, Garruk or on SB.

MagicMarc Thanks for all your tips. Both Kogla, the Titan Ape and Thorn Mammoth could work, I will probably try them out. I think in this kind of deck they are better than Feasting Troll King . The Vivien is unfortunately a little bit out of my budget.

In Search of Greatness is a really interesting tip that could actually work. I might try it out.

Right now, I kind of finished the deck with two Battle Mammoth as the top of the curve. I think they could work but i will try Kogla and/or Thorn Mammoth in its place. We'll see.

Probably the weakest place in the deck now is the 4 cmc lineup. I have Garruk and then I didn't know what els so now I'm runnning two Predatory Wurm which are okay but not great. Maybe I find a better 4 drop like a two of. That would be nice...

itsbuzzi That could work, but you meant instead of the Battle Mammoth or in addition to that?

Obrubnik99 on Budget MonoG Stompy Help!

7 months ago

Hi everyone! So, I'm currently trying to build a Mono Green Stompy deck (for Standard) on a budget (in paper) . Basically as cheap as possible. The power level should be around FNM level.

Fortunately this deck already has a lot of budget parts, basically all of the main creatures like Swarm Shambler , Lovestruck Beast , Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig etc. are pretty cheap. I'm mainly looking for substitutions for these cards:

  1. The Great Henge
  2. Questing Beast
  3. Stonecoil Serpent
  4. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider

What I already kind of figured could work:

The Great Henge is obviously an amazing card that can't really be easily replaced, but I think that Garruk's Uprising could work in it's place. It only draws you cards and only if the creature is big, but anyways, I don't know about a better substitution. Also, running this card meant that I'm playing more 4 power creatures. So for example no Kazandu Mammoth  Flip, because it's a 3/3. Instead more Lovestruck Beast , Old-Growth Troll and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig .

As for the top of the curve, kind of instead of Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider , I thought maybe Battle Mammoth could work??? I know, it does something completely different, but it is still a big hitter with upsides...

Anyway, what do you think? Tips on cards as substitutions for those listed above and thoughts overall...

Thanks for everything in forehand!

Lmao imagine having such little meaning to your life that you spam someone's deck with lazy insults haha.

As for you, really cool idea! I love commander decks that give themselves restrictions like this! I don't know how much you've looked at Kaldheim, but have you considered Battle Mammoth to get some value when opponents kill things, Cosmos Elixir (although with green you probably have better options anyway), or Glorious Protector as a kind of wrath protection/ Eerie Interlude and gain a bunch of life on a creature?
