Beledros Witherbloom and Thorn Mammoth is nasty. Oh my god. That's great!

Would something like Moldervine Reclamation or Deathreap Ritual be worth a mention? Or Font of Agonies? I guess that last one depends on how often you pay life, but it works really well in my Vilis, Broker of Blood deck so I thought I'd mention it.

BrassLord on Nikya - 100% Creatures ($85)

Fun deck description, looks like a blast to pilot!

Kessig Wolf Run recently got a reprint, so I think it'd fall into your budget! It's another way to get your damage in, not only in pumping your own creatures but also leaving up mana to pump up someone else's. Another feather in your cap for when you want to start ending the game.

You already have Genesis, so I would also maybe look at fitting a Spore Frog in there somewhere! I've been saved many a time by this card, and once you get Genesis online, you can have a soft lock on combat damage, with you being able to recur the frog. Can be frustrating for combat based decks to deal with!

Eternal Witness is another card that I wish was JUST a bit cheaper, it'd fit into your deck. Pairs really well with Kogla, the Titan Ape (Which you should for sure give a try to!). At a few bucks less expensive, the relatively new Timeless Witness could be a budget option, with it only costing 1 more mana but gaining eternalize. Both would allow you to continue to fetch bombs from the graveyard once the game gets long.

Battle Mammoth helps in dealing with decks that have a lot of targeted removal, and is a decent beater for cheap if foretold. The recently rotating out Thorn Mammoth is another card that I've seen put in work once it resolves! Just a few ideas I had after reading the deck!

(Just checked, Eternal witness also got a reprint, so it'd slide in in just under 3 dollars!)

Hey, nice version so far with a high budget. Cutting Garruk's Uprising was a mistake, the card is really good in creature decks.

Apex Altisaur and Thorn Mammoth are upgrades for Ravager Wurm and Foe-Razer Regent for repeatable fight. You don't really need Regent since you have Vigor which has a much better ability to put counters on creatures you control. Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients from the new Draconic Rage Commander precon is a target for fight and good with Vigor. He can also be a repeatable source of big tokens to abuse Greater Good, Terror of the Peaks and Garruk's Uprising.

Quartzwood Crasher is a five drop to pair with Garruk's Uprising, another repeatable source of big tokens and it's combat damage trigger goes well when you can double the power of a creature with trample. Garruk, Primal Hunter and Garruk, Unleashed can be repeatable sources of tokens for attacking and fighting. With fight it's easier to protect them to get to their ultimates.

Arcane Signet is a ramp upgrade for Rampant Growth. Harrow is an upgrade for Kodama's Reach. Karplusan Forest, Grove of the Burnwillows, Cragcrown Pathway  Flip are three more Gruul dual lands that always ETB untapped to consider adding. Cinder Glade is an upgrade for Temple of Abandon.

Some cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

You could use Thorn Mammoth if you've been liking Apex Altisaur. Also you mentioned in your primer that Sweet Gum Recluse has a worse case scenario of cascading into Apex Devastator, but that isn't how cascade works. You will always hit something with lesser mana value.

backinstep on Yeva - Mono Green

3 months ago

Yeva is my favourite mono coloured commander, as she really changes how green typically plays. Nice list! A few things..

1) Land count seems a little low, especially as your ramp seems to rely more on Seedborn Muse style effects. Stuff like Farhaven Elf and Elvish Pioneer work well for me. Also get Emergence Zone in there, handy flash back-up plan if Yeva is MIA.

2) Yeva protection. She'll have a target on her head, so more Heroic Intervention style effects are great. I use Withstand Death and Blossoming Defense.

3) Bounce effects. Instant speed creatures are great, but being able to repeatly cast for value is better. Temur Sabertooth is a baller, and even stuff like Stampeding Wildebeests and Stampeding Serow work really well.

4) Other creatures. Thorn Mammoth is hilarious, Bellowing Tanglewurm can make your beaters unblockable, Thornweald Archer and Deadly Recluse are great for surprise blockers.

MagicMarc Thanks for all your tips. Both Kogla, the Titan Ape and Thorn Mammoth could work, I will probably try them out. I think in this kind of deck they are better than Feasting Troll King . The Vivien is unfortunately a little bit out of my budget.

In Search of Greatness is a really interesting tip that could actually work. I might try it out.

Right now, I kind of finished the deck with two Battle Mammoth as the top of the curve. I think they could work but i will try Kogla and/or Thorn Mammoth in its place. We'll see.

Probably the weakest place in the deck now is the 4 cmc lineup. I have Garruk and then I didn't know what els so now I'm runnning two Predatory Wurm which are okay but not great. Maybe I find a better 4 drop like a two of. That would be nice...

Other suggestions would be: Kogla, the Titan Ape . It gets trample from your enchantment. Between the fight trigger and if it's declared as an attacker you can get rid of 2 permanents before blockers get declared. You don't have humans for the indestructible part but it's still a decent alternative. Another good one is Thorn Mammoth , especially synergizes with your Lovestruck Beast , Old-Growth Troll , and Garruk, Unleashed . Getting fight triggers off of 1/1 tokens or a Garruk beast token can really mess up an opponent's game state. Feasting Troll King is another big hitter that returns to play 1 time if you do not support the food stuff.

As alternatives to The Great Henge you could try out Vivien, Monsters' Advocate or In Search of Greatness .
