Instead of the mana doublers, i would add something like Bear Umbra, untaps your land if you swing with your commander, plus totem armor. Get some protection aswell, Lightning Greaves Yeva, Nature's Herald (just cast commander straight back when he gets destroyed, keep it in your hand). maybe a few spells like Tamiyo's Safekeeping, Tyvar's Stand, Gaea's Gift, Momentous Fall, Shared Summons, Wrap in Vigor some other creatures i didnt think of before: Oracle of Mul Daya, Silverback Elder, Apex Devastator, Cultivator Colossus, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Cankerbloom, Topiary Stomper, Regal Force

For cutting cards, i would just cut cards that arent creatures or synergize with creatures, or dont do alot most of the time. something like Exponential Growth is gonna be a dead card in your hand most of the times.

Also dont understand most artifacts in your deck. Diviner's Wand for example, 3 mana to cast, 3 to equip, 4 to draw 1 card, 10 mana to draw your first card, and 4 mana for each card after that doesnt seem worth it at all. Id also cut 1x Mirage Mirror, Staff of Compleation, Helm of the Host, Lithoform Engine, Book of Rass

Id also cut: Vigor, Ironscale Hydra, Seeker of Skybreak, Viridian Joiner, Nantuko Mentor

And i would add 4-5 lands. playing a land per turn is stronger then playing an arcane signet or sol ring and then miss a land drop. (id cut arcane signet and sol ring aswell, they are bad draws past t4)

Have you considered Leatherback Baloth's cousin, Steel Leaf Champion? It pretty much accomplishes the same thing but with a little more upside. Reverent Hunter is a pretty nice follow up since it would be at least a 4/4 for 3 after playing a Baloth.

Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Whisperer of the Wilds can speed up the early game considerably.

Ghalta, Primal Hunger as a 'one of' might also be a pretty good finisher that could come out pretty quickly considering the amount of power in this deck (Goreclaw alone reduces his cost by 6). Hope this helps

Quietly building up value and not getting on your opponents' bad side is not something that mono green does well. Because mono green's value lies in boardstate, and board presence always scares the opponent.

Especially if your commander is indestructible with deathtouch, that screams out: "I'M GOING TO FIGHT WITH ALL YOUR CREATURES AND IT WILL COST ME NOTHING!" and the other players at the table will resent you for being unable to build a boardstate themselves.

Even if your plan is just doubling your mana with a "power matters"-theme, as my Rhonas deck had when I played it, and I literally had only one fight spell in the deck, my experience is that laying low is not green's strength. It's the most Timmy color. So be enormous, be dangerous, and own it. Someone looks at you funny? Send a Ghalta, Primal Hunger at their face, and Ram Through their commander for good measure!

If you want to play mono green, embrace the color's strength. Don't try to play it like blue/black, those are green's enemy colors for a reason.

Ghalta, Primal Hunger is so great haha. No offense, just giving a critique, it seems that Greenbelt Rampager isn't useful in this deck. I don't see any energy counters cards in here!

Ghalta, Primal Hunger is perfect for this deck. Cards like Bonders' Enclave, Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker as well!

Alright, so. Right off the bat, sorry for this being a bit late, I thought I was gonna get to it the other day, and then I worked two 13 hour shifts in a row. But, im here now, so lets get started.

I can see that you chose to go more of a landfall route as apposed to the stompy route that I did. Respectable, I like it. However, I think that this deck struggles with some of the same things that my deck does, which is getting creatures through to hit face. It's why I have such a high priority on trample effects. Cards like Rhonas's Monument or Aggressive Mammoth are big hitters in my deck just because Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is often already around a 20/20, giving her trample is what brings it together to make her significantly more terrifying. Giant Ankheg is a favorite of mine for this purpose, it gives so much value.

A few big beaters I'm surprised you don't have are Ghalta, Primal Hunger because, lets be honest, shes basically a 12/12 trampler for 2, or cards like Worldspine Wurm or Moldgraf Monstrosity. Big, hard hitting creatures that you can easily power out pretty quickly. I would also consider Blackblade Reforged as a card, as it effectively doubles Ashaya's power and turns a scarily large creature into something terrifying.

Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is a card that I really like in my deck. She's basically as big as Ashaya, so she is a good beaters, seeing as how she has trample, but personally, I prefer her in the gy. There are a bunch of sneaky ways to protect your creatures with Ashaya. I see you already have Quirion Ranger, but I suggest Multani as well as Scryb Ranger. Instead of protecting your creatures with Sylvan Safekeeper and having to sacrifice something else to do it, why not just bounce them to your hand and fizzle the effect? Then you get to play them out again and get another etb/landfall trigger for whatever you have on board that cares about that. This also works better against board wipes, as shroud doesn't help with that.

For landfall effects, Rampaging Baloths or Tireless Tracker are some cards I would consider, as they either make basically infinite 4/4s or they give you clues, which, after playing this deck a lot, that card advantage is very necessary, you can absolutely run out of cards very quickly. That's why I run Ulvenwald Mysteries and Rishkar's Expertise in my Ashaya deck. Ulvenwald gives you consistent clues and a chump blocker to boot, and Rishkar's, combined with Ashaya, or Multani or whoever else, draws you like, 20 cards and then lets you put something onto the battlefield.

For ramp/land effects you can go in a ton of different directions, what you do doesn't matter much, as everything is effective imo. I personally run Bootleggers' Stash and Zendikar Resurgent because you can ramp into them very quickly and they can both give you insane amounts of extra mana. Other cards like Augur of Autumn or Karametra's Acolyte are both good utility/ramp cards, as well as Stone-Seeder Hierophant.

Now, I really just have a few questions. Why are you running Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth? Isn't everything already a forest? That pick, I'm afraid I just don't understand, could you explain what I'm missing? And if you're going for a devotion style deck, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gaea's Cradle are both amazing lands. Granted, idk what your budget is and Gaea's Cradle isn't exactly cheap lmao. Another thing, why are you running 45 lands? I understand that there is a landfall theme, but that seems extreme even to me, most landfall decks I've seen run around 38. I would reduce your land count imo and invest those slots into artifacts and instants that either pair well with your deck, or that protect your creatures.

DinoBoyBen - Really like the deck list and the concept. I know you are going for a quick as possible Ghalta, Primal Hunger drop so this may be a mute point but looking at the deck, it looks very similar to my dino deck Spared No Expense!!! in terms of trying to accelerate to drop big dinos early. It may not be as good of a fit for your deck but I have had tons of success with Ranging Raptors in terms of adding extra lands. Might be worth a look instead of running some of the dorks but would also likely require you to tweak the deck a bit to hit Enrage consistently.

Anyways, cool idea and happy brewing!

gttswiafr on Explorers of ixalan cards on …

So I'm trying to add cards to my inventory and stuff and when I try to add some of the cards from archenemy nicol bolas and explorers of ixalan it says that the variants for those releases don't exist. There's also like no cards from explorers of ixalan variants and I'm pretty sure Ghalta, Primal Hunger doesn't actually exist and neither does Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca. What is up with this?
