My main thought looking through this list was that it feels like you’re creating extra steps for yourself - pretty much all your “cheap cmc vehicles” don’t have any additional power over what green can provide normally in creature form, so you’re creating extra work for yourself with no real gain.

Going down a more traditional (and practical) creature route also lets you run Aspect of Hydra instead of Might of the Masses , which can net you free-wins out of nowhere

The following below is a list I used to run a while back for mono-green stompy. It’s obviously not tribe-orientated, but may give you some ideas of the direction to head.

Note the above list is a bit old and can defo do with some improvements, but its a good baseline of what green does well - being hyper-aggressive.

In general for mono-green you want to either build your deck around being very fast & aggressive, OR build it around ramping to some massive auto-win threat. You appear to be trying to do a strange mix of the two, being sudo-aggressive while ramping to semi-big threats. I would suggest picking a defined path and building around that. If you want to be aggressive, don’t ramp so much, and field lower costing creatures. If you are wanting to ramp-big, get something like Tooth and Nail in there to cheat out Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (or some other busted payoff)

The other thing to evaluate is how much sticking to your tribe is actually getting you. Whether you’re getting actual value out of confining yourself to this creature-type, or whether its just a self-imposed restriction without much upside.

Mainly, I'm wondering which would be seen as a better fit for my given deck. Quicksilver Amulet or Cryptic Gateway

Also, I'm looking for opinions on where to steer this deck if anywhere. There are so many viable Beasts that it's been hard for me to make card choices. Then you have cards like Fierce Empath which could be useful. So, advice is more than welcome. Thanks! (If someone could guide me in how to format this into a list, that'd also be appreciated. Sorry for the current format.)

You can pick better versions of some cards: Kalonian Tusker => Barkhide Troll Sedge Scorpion => Wasteland Viper

Additionally I would put here: Khalni Hydra , Ghalta, Primal Hunger and maybe Aspect of Hydra

Between the Krosan Warchief and Rhonas's Monument, you have enough ways to reduce cost that the amulet that is a bit of overkill. Garruk's Harbinger could be a pretty for adding more beast to your hand while not slowing down on aggro. Speaking of aggro, Rhythm of the Wild is pretty good. Also Kalonian Tusker is a pretty good alternative to Garruk's Companion (or extra copies). Hope this helps.

Creature - Crocodile Angel


Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, look at the top three cards of your library, then put them back in any order. You may shuffle your library. Then, you may reveal the top card of your library. If a green card is revealed this way, you gain 2 life. If a green creature card is revealed this way, you gain 3 life instead.

: Until end of turn, ~ loses menace and gains vigilance. Scry 2, ~ deals 2 damage to target nonwhite creature you don't control that has attacked or blocked since the beginning of your last turn, and you gain 2 life. Activate this ability only if it's your turn and only once each turn.


Create a new variation/take on Kalonian Tusker/Watchwolf/Zhur-Taa Goblin, but with a fun and interesting yet on-theme twist.

Barkhide Troll is a better Kalonian Tusker, and could be a nice addition with sinergies with your Avatar of the Resolute, Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Scavenging Ooze, Strangleroot Geist and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig.
