TL;DR: It would not be mono-green.

It might have been a green effect in the past, but it's not anymore. The aforementioned Dosan the Falling Leaf is already more than fifteen years old. Manglehorn and Root Maze affect artifacts, and the latter also affects lands. Root Maze also was originally printed in Tempest and hasn't seen any reprint in almost fifteen years.

Mono- control, at this point, seems to be largely limited to:

Every card that forces discard in Pioneer is also , and two of those three are split/aftermath. Every counterspell in Pioneer also includes . Even specifically stuff like Plow Under is long gone.

Cards like Dragonlord Dromoka and Marisi, Breaker of the Coil say that maybe there's space for casting restrictions, but the confuses the issue. I believe that if City of Solitude were printed today, it would require somewhere in its casting cost, and any would provide an additional effect.

City of Solitude is a very interesting card in that it is a restriction effect in green, a choice that was likely made because green is an enemy of blue, a very controlling color. However, green does not have many restriction effects, any more, so I wonder if the city would be white if it was printed, today, using Grand Abolisher as a guideline.

What does everyone else say about this? Would City of Solitude be white if it was printed, today?

I just cut Hurricane from the list, to make room for Gaea's Touch. I think the number of wincons depends on your playstyle/playgroup. Two might be too few.. In total I have 6 cards that usually leads to victory after flipping sasaya:

I used to play City of Solitude. It was amazing in this deck.. I think I might have cut it for Veil of Summer.. Both of your card-suggestions are excellent.

My issue with this deck is cutting cards. I do honestly not know what cards to cut anymore! If you have any suggestions for cuttable cards I would love to hear them!

Hi, have you considered adding more wincons maybe 2ish (The Great Aurora is maybe another wincon) it's too few.

Also what do you think about City of Solitude

Haha, I suppose you're right RNR_Gaming! Maybe I'll throw in Recycle and City of Solitude into that Aluren and Shrieking Drake combo and relive the mid-90's!

Alright Profet93, I tested the deck out and just as suspected it was 3 vs 1 and I did not win either game. XD

I made some changes to the deck that I feel will help ramp up to a scary board state. I took out 3 of the 1 mana dorks and some other cards and I added in 1 more forest and more cards to help me draw through the deck to give me more options and get me to Primal Surge faster since I didn't see it at all in both of the games I played.

One change I am debating is removing Platinum Angel and replacing it with City of Solitude . The latter I feel is better but the former is a creature so I am having trouble deciding. They serve pretty much the same purpose but City can help a combo player win by not allowing anyone else to interact with them on their turn.
