Dryad Arbor

Land Creature — Forest Dryad

(Dryad Arbor isn't a spell, it's affected by summoning sickness, and it has ": Gain .")

Dryad Arbor is green.

lhetrick13 you make a good point. Scythe Leopard and Kazandu Mammoth  Flip struck a cord with me for the same reason, but that ended up with me building in Vintage (I'll tag the slug below) so I could include Fastbond and Manabond. I also really like how Dryad Arbor functions for a build like this.

Hmm a turn 3 Dryad Arbor is not nearly as good as an Elvish Reclaimer or Arboreal Grazer. It does get significantly better as turns go on, but at that point a better threat may be better.

The landfall enabling and synergy with increasing land count for Dryad of the Ilysian Grove and Scapeshift may be enough for it to be a decent lategame threat, but objectively it’s kind of meh early.

Still going to test, but it’s not as good as a tutor like Eladamri's Call was. Diabolic Intent also looks like something to test for that reason, but I don’t really like cards that rely on a resource I can’t guarantee (in this case having a creature to pitch and mana). I’d be very hard pressed to play this particular tutor t2.

I think the newly spoiled "Awaken the Woods" is what I've been waiting for, for the last slot!

Sorcery
Create X 1/1 green Forest Dryad land creature tokens.

That is flexible, making a swarm late game, or just ramp early to mid game. I really like the card in theory for the last slot. It basically lets me find x Dryad Arbor, which sounds pretty incredible for a deck where most people run spot removal instead of wipes against us.

Great synergy with the lines already in the deck (Dryad and Scapeshift - where lands matter), and a versatile casting cost, I'm super excited, might be overhyping it though, time will tell.

Is it called Angry Arbor because you don’t run Dryad Arbor?

Tireless Provisioner and Tireless Tracker are both insanely good for landfall decks, Ancient Greenwarden would help your landfall abilities stick, Lotus Cobra is nice, and Green Sun's Zenith is a toolbox card that can fetch Dryad Arbor turn 1 if you're lucky enough to draw into it.

I appreciate the kind words. The fetch lands are there to make sure I get a trigger on the Narnam Renegade and to thin out the deck a little so that any draws I get from Werewolf Pack Leader get the most bang for their buck. You could probably go with straight forests to save some cash, but if you do I'd probably pull the Renegades for +1 Experiment One, +1 Pelt Collector and 2x Young Wolf. Going with more basic lands will protect you a bit from cards like Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon as well.

As far as some other budget options, Boseiju, Who Endures is also a very expensive, fairly new card. It's a very strong addition for what it does but is in no way necessary for the deck to operate. That could easily be a Forest as well. If you go all Forests, consider adding in a couple of Treetop Village or Lair of the Hydra and maybe a Dryad Arbor.

Sideboards are largely a product of your local meta and the one I have listed is just a handful of quality generic options. Prowling Serpopard, Scavenging Ooze, Beast Within, Damping Sphere and Grafdigger's Cage are just a few budget options out there, depending on what you're trying to stop.

Thank you for running Hall of Gemstone in your mono green deck. Far too many users on this site leave it out and it always bothers me.

With all those basic forests I think Dust Bowl would be more useful than Field of Ruin

Instead of Life's Legacy what about Greater Good or Momentous Fall?

Green Sun's Zenith + Dryad Arbor + Natural Order = one of the strongest mono green combos

Is Utopia Sprawl necessary in a mono green deck?

Questing Beast should be in the main.
