Kogla, the Titan Ape Discussion

Shall we complete the pie then? This is not an old one, but it's a versatile and powerful mono green commander that could be budget friendly, it's Kogla, the Titan Ape !

This card just does so much. It removes creatures by etb, artifacts and enchantments by attacking, it has the convenient 7 power for 3 hits to be lethal commander damage, if you put enough humans in your deck, he's not easy to kill, and those humans can provide lots of synergy by being replayed after you bounced them. Notably Eternal Witness , or Hyrax Tower Scout + Karametra's Acolyte will work great, but also Champion of Lambholt , Foul Emissary , Mwonvuli Beast Tracker , Setessan Petitioner and Slippery Bogbonder can be incredibly useful to reuse over and over again.

TheVectornaut on Insane ramp idea - please help

I like Ant Queen as a budget mana sink. Vivien, Monsters' Advocate , while maybe not too exciting, is totally fine as well. Endbringer , on the other hand, is not functional in this deck as it currently stands. To even cast it, you need to draw the single copy of Rogue's Passage because nothing else is producing the colorless mana requirement. As for the other Eldrazi, I do like Ulamog's Crusher for decks that just want as much annihilator as possible, although Pathrazer and Artisan are better when you have enough mana for them. For Breaker of Armies , I imagine it would mostly be trying to draw heat away from your other creatures so you can get Toski triggers or lethal damage. In that case, I feel like the job could just as easily be handled by the cheaper Noble Quarry or the higher value Treeshaker Chimera . Savageborn Hydra is another creature I wouldn't recommend. For the most part, it will function identically to Heroes' Bane . The major problem is that if you Surge into it, it will enter as a 0/0 and die immediately. On the subject of Primal Surge , there is always the option of running Genesis Wave instead. It's less explosive and you'd need to keep in mind the average CMC of the cards in the deck, but it will never hit 0 things after paying 10 like Surge hypothetically can. If the price tag is prohibitive, there is a world where you lean even harder into the legendary matters gameplan and run Kamahl's Druidic Vow instead. Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig is one legendary I probably wouldn't bother with. I'd rather have something on 3 helping me ramp into even nastier options. For Polis Crusher , unless you are dealing with a ton of enchantment creatures, I think Kogla, the Titan Ape makes more sense here.

Card discussion aside, I would highly recommend EDH as a format that supports casual multiplayer games. If you want tips for a build, I'm happy to help. For pauper, my experience is much more limited, but I'll still try my best.

Cool deck idea! Glad that commander is getting some love!

Some interesting things to look at. Kogla, the Titan Ape has some interesting synergies with your commander. Oketra's Monument can help explode your board presence in the early game, and any of the token doubling enchantments seems equally good! It might not gel extremely well, but Shaman of Forgotten Ways is a mana dork that can also be a wincon. Esika's Chariot seems right up the decks alley, as it makes tokens and can copy your tokens as well! Myth Unbound also seems decent if you start running into targeted removal. Quirion Ranger also works with your tapping and untapping plan!

If it's in your budget The Great Henge goes really well with all your mana dorks! Also Eldrazi Monument seems like it would be good with your source of repeated creature making!

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .

At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .

Kogla, the Titan Ape combos with Hyrax Tower Scout and Selvala

Tap Sel for 7 mana from Kogla, use 2 for Kogla to bounce Hyrax. Replay Hyrax, untapping Sel. Then tap Sel on Kogla again. Its a net 1 green mana, looping for infinte

Thrun, the Last Troll is my favorite commander. I hate having my cool card removed, or countered, and so Thrun, the Last Troll is the current leader of my mono green voltron deck. That said, it has a bunch of other potential leaders if I want to change things up, that I shuffle into the deck if they are not leading, including Kogla, the Titan Ape and Silvos, Rogue Elemental

MLS91 Yeah, I get that it can draw a card, but there are tons of 1 and 2 cmc ramp in the deck that can be dropped after playing Skyshroud Claim and paying the same cmc for tapped mana doesn’t seem worth the ability to cycle it to me.

Used to run Nissa, Who Shakes the World and just cut her because once i’m at 5+ mana I want to be playing big bois, not more ramp. That being said I do run Traverse the Outlands and that is just because it’s pretty easy to just grab ALL of my basics with it... that and it’s a power matters deck and I wanted to put every “equal to the greatest power” kind of card in I could. Either way, she’s always in and out of rotation. I’ll slot her into the maybe board to represent that.

Priest of Titania is great, but both Karametra's Acolyte , and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds get me huge mana more reliably. Don’t really need another big mana dork.

Protean Hulk is basically for grabbing Loaming Shaman to shuffle my graveyard back in. With an instant speed sac outlet ( Momentous Fall , Greater Good , etc.) I can do it whenever I need to keep from decking myself. It can also grab any of the big mana dorks and removal ( Reclamation Sage , Kogla, the Titan Ape ). Last but not least it can grab various win cons (most notably Mossbridge Troll ) while also just being big enough that it doesn’t feel dead outside of those uses.

As for the rest, I have all of those in a competitive green deck I am working on and didn’t want to buy em all again, nor did i want to have too many tutors when I can just draw through my deck instead. That’s way more fun!

Thanks for the ideas! Some are certainly worth it if you want to tune the deck up a bit.

This is an impressive list. I know how hard mono can rock from my Her Royal Fluffness list, great job. Some cards you might want to consider:

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma , Nyxbloom Ancient , Garruk's Horde

Also, Eternal Witness is a great card, and Temur Sabertooth and/or Kogla, the Titan Ape can make it even better. Paleoloth is a massively underrated card in such a deck. Also, have you ever heard of Shared Summons ? In a deck like this, that gets to 12+ mana in no time, it can really help you get the most important creatures.
