Ramp to play Yisan, start gathering Verse counters until we can search out our big boys, and smash face to win. There's some tapping and untapping shenanigans, with some Elven ramp thrown in for good taste.

The ramp choices are pretty obvious and basic- Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Llanowar Scout , Arbor Elf , Voyaging Satyr , Elvish Mystic , Birds of Paradise , and Karametra's Acolyte for creature-based ramp. Moss Diamond and Sol Ring for artifact ramp. And finally Burgeoning and Wild Growth for a bit of enchantment ramp.
Illusionist's Bracers + Seeker of Skybreak can lead to infinite mana. Tap to activate Seeker on a Mana dork, and when Illusionist's Bracers triggers, use it to untap Seeker. Repeat until you have all the mana you want. I'd recommend Karametra's Acolyte , especially with enough Devotion. With enough mana, you could activate Yisan multiple times a turn through using and abusing Staff of Domination and Sword of the Paruns , though after Verse 8 its pointless. Other untap shenanigans include Wirewood Lodge (almost always target Seeker), Wirewood Symbiote (again, go after Seeker), Umbral Mantle , Thousand-Year Elixir , and arguably Great Oak Guardian .
We run a robust removal package, though namely towards enchantments and artifacts- which are some of our biggest threats, truth be told. Can't really ram into an opponent's face easily for lethal with Propaganda in the way. We have- Manglehorn , Reclamation Sage , Acidic Slime , Lignify , Beast Within , Force of Vigor , Krosan Grip , Nature's Claim , and Return to Nature . Though Thought-Knot Seer counts as Removal as well- getting rid of potentially annoying cards in our opponent's hands- we run no real colorless ramp besides Sol Ring , so it can be annoying to draw it- as the plan is to Yisan it into play. And finally Duplicant is just another nice bit of creature removal that might steal us a juicy creature or just get rid of an annoying one.
For protection we run Autumn's Veil and Veil of Summer to mess with pesky Blue players at every table, Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves to protect and haste our commander, Gaea's Blessing for anti-mill, Ravenous Slime to combat decks with a lot of revival, and, just in case an artifact deck gets too trigger happy, we can bring out Collector Ouphe - though it may mess a bit with our artifacts, its better to cut them off and sacrifice a few synergies than to let them win.
We achieve card draw through Soul of the Harvest and Guardian Project by creatures entering the battlefield meaning Yisan gets the triggers going as well, Regal Force to draw a lot with a good board state, Elvish Visionary just as a cheap to cast if needed +1 card, Runic Armasaur to get draws off the near guaranteed activation of creature abilities, and Harmonize just to straight up draw cards. Oh, and Slippery Karst and Tranquil Thicket to cycle if the land drops aren't needed, with Sensei's Divining Top for filtering. We tutor for creatures with Fierce Empath , Green Sun's Zenith , Chord of Calling , Finale of Devastation , and Eldritch Evolution . We tutor for lands with Elvish Reclaimer . Seasons Past , Eternal Witness , Gaea's Blessing , and Regrowth all get cards back from the graveyard. Temur Sabertooth can return creatures to our hand at instant speed to save them or replay them.
Our win cons are buffing and smashing face, through cards like Triumph of the Hordes , Overrun , Pathbreaker Ibex , End-Raze Forerunners , Great Oak Guardian , God-Eternal Rhonas and Beastmaster Ascension . End-Raze Forerunners, Rhonas, and Great Oak Guardian can be replayed over and over again with Temur Sabertooth to leave our opponents a pulp beneath our hordes.

I've never really done Green strategies, so its kinda liberating to go in aggressive.
