Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth

Legendary Land

Each land is a Forest in addition to its other land types.

Balinor5 that is a really great observation! I did intentionally keep the deck colorless as a core theme, but this is the first time I've considered using green due to how explosive that value is-- it simply can't be understated, using Arbor Elf to untap for value would be a fast (and better) way to pull this off.

I would most definitely be a player to use Ancient Stirrings, Once Upon a Time, and the pivotal Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. So, I tip my hat for the suggestion for sure.

Another player in my group runs mono G tron-post, and we've been incredible rivals for many years; this deck is kind of a "anything you can do, I can do better... without colors." But all in good fun. I appreciate your feedback and I'm going to consider using green in the future! And maybe just a thought.. Yavimaya Hollow?

I've been playing around with Green Post. Sylvan Scrying and Ancient Stirrings are a bit faster than the Expedition Map, and Stirrings can be used later to grab a bomb instead. What really makes it though is the use of Arbor Elf along with Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. Turn your posts into Forests and then untap them with the Elf.

I had a Blue Eldrazi Eldrazi Blues deck that used Maps and Trinket Mages to get them, and recently prototyped a Green Version Eldrazi Greens. I left my Blue Cards I took out in the MaybeBoard. Maybe the Green messes up your theme, but at least you can kind of playtest with it to see if it works for you.

Good Luck.

Any deck with black and green can benefit from the color fixing of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth

Hall of Gemstone punish players for having greedy mana bases.

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth + Mana Web punish players for having land.

Seedtime mono green Time Walk obviously meta dependent but so worth it.

Green Sun's Zenith + Dryad Arbor + Natural Order mono green efficiency.

So i have been looking for a deck like this for a while. I am in the process of building one as well. 3 cards come to mind that might fit this deck. Life and Limb, Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth, and Archfiend of Depravity might be a few id consider puting in.

I do have this deck in paper and it over performs most games to be honest. It’s not cEDH buts it can play very close to it with the right hand.

As for replacements Boseiju, Who Endures can be replaced with Nature's Claim

Phytoburst can be replaced with a lot of things I’ve debated Boon of Boseiju recently

Survival of the Fittest can be replaced with Fauna Shaman although it isn’t nearly as powerful

Tamiyo's Safekeeping has a ton of potential replacements buts it’s super cheap and a common from the most recent set and I think it’s worth picking up

As for Gaea's Cradle the deck runs fine without it. I just added it in about a two weeks ago. It’s not necessary I just wanted to get one

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is super strong card with paired with Arbor Elf because you can untap any of your lands including Wirewood Lodge the untap selvala a second time.

Mana Crypt can be replaced with Ancient Tomb maybe? But there really isn’t a replacement same goes for Jeweled Lotus I would recommend just adding more ramp or lands to balance out the mana count in the deck if you had to go without them.
