Hall of Gemstone

World Enchantment

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses a color. Until end of turn, lands tapped for mana produce mana of the chosen color instead of any other color.

SufferFromEDHD Thank you for the recommendations! I think I'll keep Primal Order in the Sideboard for now, and I also put Hall of Gemstone in there thanks to your advice. I don't know how I missed Lure of Prey! I'll have to cut something for that as soon as possible.

As for Argothian Wurm and Endless Wurm, I feel like their respective drawbacks make them a bit less reliable than some of the other big Creature cards I've already included. However, the latter's 9/9 stat line is incredibly tempting; for now, I'll put Endless Wurm and Rancor in the Sideboard for anyone who wants to try them out together.

Thank you again! :D

Get that Primal Order in the main board.

Hall of Gemstone is a mono green all star.

Dust Bowl is brutal late game with a lot of basic lands.

Natural Order and Lure of Prey are neat.

Running wurms but no Argothian Wurm?

Endless Wurm + Rancor

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my comment in detail, I know it wasn't easy. You make fair points, you might want to mention budget(ish) in the description so others know how to suggest cards accordingly.

Any weaknesses you feel the deck has?

While I disagree with you decision to keep Primal Order, I respect your decision to keep it. Given you are okay with hurting then via nonbasics, are you into non-basic land hate in the form of Wave of Vitriol or does it go against the spirit of the commander/playgroup and is too expensive? A different card to consider might be Hall of Gemstone. Neither are serious suggestions, just wanted to pick your brain.

Skullclamp - Draw on dorks, deterrant to creature removal. Although you said you don't need much draw so perhaps I'm being a bit overzealous.

Heroic Intervention - Additional form of versatile protection

Thanks, Daigar.

It's been mentioned for my Elfball deck, and I agree it's a mean card that can help win games for any mono-green deck. I would use this if I were playing in a tournament, but for most any other game I prefer to try to stay as focused as I possibly can on synergy or answers. Hall of Gemstone is neither, and isn't fun for the rest of the table, it's just a form of control and slowing the game down, and honestly it's not really fun for 'me' and doesn't do anything for the deck in and of itself.

But, yeah, it's a powerful card can make somebody's day not so good, and I consider it more on the competitive side that I rarely play. So, for now, it's not going in my own personal deck. But feel free to use it yourself! =)

Idk if it was mentioned but personally I'd think Hall of Gemstone would work well in this.

Thank you for the suggestions SufferFromEDHD. After some consideration I decided to swap out Karametra's Acolyte for Questing Beast (I have a copy in my binders), and Utopia Sprawl for my copy of Birds of Paradise from my recently recycled Brokkos, Apex of Forever deck. I liked Utopia Sprawl since it dodged most of the removal that Mana Dorks are most susceptible to. Is it necessary for a mono-green deck? It's debatable, but I'm usually happy to draw into it early on.

I like Life's Legacy because of its low CMC, although I do like that Momentous Fall is an instant, but don't currently own a copy. I do have a copy of Greater Good though.

I picked up Hall of Gemstone for about $5 a couple of years ago, and was surprised when I saw what its new price is. It's a good card, but I can understand why other players might omit it from their lists between the its effect and the price tag.

As for your other suggestions, I don't currently own copies of any of them, but will consider them a bit more. I'm planning on picking up cards for other decks in the next month or two, but had this deck as one of the lowest in my consideration for new upgrades aside from maybe a Silverback Elder

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.

@ SufferFromEDHD

Thanks for the ideas. We'll look to dust off this baby and add a couple of those in to test.

Hall of Gemstone does indeed look brutal, lol.

We'll prob def add Hum of the Radix.
