MonoGreenAggro v. 6.23 NOW WITH SNOW (Ur8iR8),
How it Works
I want to stick with the Scryb+Force rather than go pure haste.It is so relaxing and fun to play, and it is pretty good, something that you don't usually find, fun and good. Consistently in the top 4, it is faster than most, and has enough tech to it to be quite tough.
My focus now is Early Aggro, focusing on unblockablity through evasion and trample,via the Loxodon Warhammer Buy with ScrybForce Combo as Mid-game renforcement.
We will see how this goes, for now this is what i'm gonna run
15 Snow-Covered Forest Buy: I made the jump to snow, mainly becuase of Mouth of Ronom Buy Green doesn't really get creature removal, and so it looks like i need to run snow, atleast for a trial period. I AM NOT: currently running Scrying Sheets Buy. If i can find two before FNM this week they will likley be included, but that is IF i can get some in a trade. For this reason, and besides the fact that he sucks, Boreal Druid Buy is not currently being considered. Ohran Viper Buy on teh other hand, might just make a come back.
3 Mouth of Ronom Buy: creature removal in green!!! The main reason i jumped to snow. Teferi can go sit on a frog now!!!
2 Pendelhaven Buy: I got lots of 1/1's it really helps the damage add up. can save Scryb Ranger Buy from nasty things like Darkblast Buy or Pyroclasm Buy
4 Birds of Paradise Buy: great accelearator, easy to kill, but doesn't really need to live too long
3 Llanowar Elves Buy: are really just more BoP's. though they can ground pound too.
4 Silhana Ledgewalker Buy: hands down one of the sweetest creatures in Ravi-Green. Doesn't really fit with ScrubForce as the win condition, but, it is SOOOO good that is gets to stay.
4 Scryb Ranger Buy: wow. that is all i can say. too good not to be included, it is everything besides casting cost...Can do all sorts of techy stuff with Llanowar Elves Buy or Birds of Paradise Buy for more free mana... Part one of the ScrubForce combo
4 Spectral Force Buy: uber sweet tech ScrubForce is just way too good...It is rather expensive with a CMC of five (did i just say that???), but dropping him on turn three after Birds of Paradise Buy on turn one and Scryb Ranger Buy on turn two is...well...the best ever...almost. Part two of ScrubForce
4 Moldervine Cloak Buy: great friend for anybody in the deck. No worries about dropping this on a Birds of Paradise Buy, or even on Llanowar Elves Buy. just dredge it back when it is necessary
4 Stonewood Invocation Buy: totally sweet against spot removal and combat tricks, besides when you can use it as a 5 point burn spell...Allows protection and extra beat-face in one card!!! About 3,452,000 Times better than Might of Oaks Buy. If you disagree, you need a reality check. 2 damage is NOT worth losing the ability to counter spot removal during combat.
3 Loxodon Warhammer Buy: Warhammer allows me to out-race an opponent, with little fear of losing card advantage. Plus, trample, power and life-gain in one beat-stick makes short work of opponents. When your playing Aggro, and you end the game with the win and 30+ life, you know your doing something right...Very expensive (a total of to play), but man, it kicks arse...
3 Might of Old Krosa Buy: I finally bit the bullet, and decided to run a playset. I've heard it is really good, i i've decided to try them out.
3 Harmonize Buy: green card draw!!! hand refill, and a way to prevent losing steam
3 Skarrgan Pit-Skulk Buy: A little evasion never hurt anyone, except for the opponent, or course.
1 Squall Line Buy: instant speed game winner, i am a fan of random one-of's for teh final slot.
4 Giant Solifuge Buy: A green deck with haste??? Very anti-sinergistic, but against creatureless control, if you can get him in play, it is typically Good Game. comes in against creatureless control
3 Call of the Herd Buy: wicked great, and i got a good deal on three. lovley against Wrath of God Buy and removal based decks.
3 Krosan Grip Buy: (BTW THIS IS MY Naturalize Buy, SOME PEOPLE CAN"T SEE THAT SOMEHOW) The worst match-ups for this deck usually involve one of a few cards:Glare of Subdual Buy, Faith's Fetters Buy, Story Circle Buy, Phyrexian Arena Buy, Skullmead Cauldron Buy(though i didn't have too much trouble, it was a bit of a speed bump), Peace of Mind Buy, and SIGNETS...K.G. is uncounterable, and hoses them all...Ubber important against Sacred Mesa Buy...nothing ruins Silhana Ledgewalker Buy's day more than (37) FREAKING STOOPID pegasuses (or Pegasi, whatever)
3 Into the North Buy: right now, i fear Land distruction
1 Squall Line Buy
(cards i would like to include but don't really feel like/aren't sure about)
Groundbreaker Buy: can't currently afford them, seems a bit fragile...
Sheltering Ancient Buy: I love this dude, and he won me quite a few games during his service. but Spectral Force Buy fills his role, and sadly, is better...
Ohran Viper Buy: I own a playset, but can't really bring myself to inculde them. It basicly acts as a lightning rod, saying "FRY ME!!! FRY ME!!!!" Though, if i get some scrying sheets, it might be worth the inclusion.
Loaming Shaman Buy: should he get a sideboard place??? usually by the time i would play it, i should have already won, or i have already lost...
Shielding Plax Buy: i play Silhana Ledgewalker Buy...he takes care of removal decks...no need to waste sideboard spots on this due to what i feel is a lack of necessaryness...Though, [this] would get along great with Spectral Force Buy
Yavimaya Dryad Buy: Wood Elves Buy only good, or a 2/1 guarenteed unbolckable in exchange for free land for the enemy...Yes, i know i can get the forest also, but i really don't want to waste my drop turn 2-3 when i could be setting up for a turn three Scrub-n-Force combo...There are better cards right now... for dominates my early game, and Scryb Ranger Buy shanigans dominate mid to late game...
Ornithopter Buy: I have always loved this metal machine. with Moldervine Cloak Buy hanging around, the idea of a 3/5 flying for is wicked sweet
Dryad Sophisticate Buy: just too fragile without armor. yes it ends games, but seriously, what in my deck doesn't??? I had a guy use the dredge ability on Darkblast Buy to kill THREE IN A ROW!!!! nope. that wasn't fun. Do I need to work it back in someplace???
Results: (the records are match records, not game records. For example, if i play you at FNM and i win 2-1, then my match record against you is 1-0)(I do this because i can't remember game records)
Mono Control: Leyline of Lifeforce Buy+Scryb Ranger Buy= I win. 'Nuff Said. 2-0 (Match record)
Triskitron: Leyline of Lifeforce Buy+Giant Solifuge Buy= Play WoG or lose. Usually, they lose. 3-1
Zoo: Loxodon Warhammer Buy= Free life to keep me ahead. 1-0
Zoo: Loxodon Warhammer Buy= Free life to keep me ahead. 1-0
Plus, evasion is better than his army of savanah lions
Glare/ScrybForce: He doesn't have WoG's. Krosan Grip Buy trumps Glare of Subdual Buy. Stonewood Invocation Buy= I Win. 3-0
Rakdos Aggro: He had no chance. 2-0
Tron: This is a bit tougher. Pyroclasm Buy is nasty. Stablization is harder for them to achive, but Demonfire Buy is something i can't touch. 2-1
M..A. (Mirror Match): Loxodon Warhammer Buy makes all the difference. Sooo good!!! 3-0
reanimator/firemane control: My least favorite match-up. Spot removal, WoG's. Creatures that are bigger than mine. I understand that i'm mostly just screwed. Decks like this are designed to beat mine. I need to just get over it. 1-3 (Lucky for me, usually he just wants to split with me. Yeah!!!)
Boros Deck Wins: 2-0 I have the bestest aggro!!!
Dranula de luovre: ????
Gruul L.D. 1-1 When i get mana screwed, even just a little, i lose big. Pyroclasm Buy hurts. I need a way to protect my lands...
Blink riders: ????
