The Decks Files, Part 5: Mono Green

ng so many decks means that it’s REALLY time consuming to keep decklists updated. Not every deck is on, and many that are have changed significantly. That said, IF YOU WANT A DECKLIST: leave a comment or send me a message and I will find time to fix, or create, the decklists on TappedOut.

Here’s the Quick Rubric I’ll use for some of the questions.

How often do I want to Play it? How “Good” is it? How much do I like it?
5=  More than once in a Row  I’d play it against “Competitive decks” or if I actually want to try to win  One of my very favorites
4=  Often  It can hold its own  I really like it
3=  Sometimes  It might win under special circumstances  It’s okay
2=  Under certain circumstances  Just for Fun  Something’s not quite right
1=  Rarely / have to be in a certain mood  Winning would be a miracle I might actually take it apart… maybe


Commander: Rhys the RedeemedRhys y Rhai Gwaredol
Name:  Rhymes with Peace
Style: Tokens/Tribal
Tribe?: Somewhat Elf
Want to play?: 2
“Good?”: 2
Like?: 3
Deck Notes: My first “Mono” Green deck (no white mana except for Rhys’ hybrid symbol) is a mix of Elf Tribal and things that make lots of different kinds of tokens.  I like the deck because Rhys is a family name. I dislike the deck because there are so many different tokens to keep track of, and also because no one pronounces it correctly (hint. it’s not Rice, Riss, or Rizz).  I have a Custom, poorly translated Welsh, version of Rhys and am making poorly translated Welsh custom Tokens.  I may de-elf the deck down to only elves that make tokens.

Commander: Jedit Ojanen of EfravaJedit Ojanen of Efrava, Magic, Planar Chaos
Name: Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, (and Wolves, and other Beasts) Oh, My
Style: Aggro
Tribe?: Animals
Want to play?: 2
“Good?”: 2
Like?:  3
Deck Notes: This one was going to be Wolf Tribal, but then it just became miscellaneous Woodland Beasts.  It makes creatures. It attacks. It may try to play tricks with Nacatl War-Pride

Commander: Thrun, The Last TrollThrun, the Last Troll, Magic, Mirrodin Besieged
Name: My Thrun and Only; the Thrunny-Badger; Thrun Stands Alone
Style: Creatureless(?)
Tribe?:  A Troll
Want to play?: 2
“Good?”: 3
Like?: 3
Deck Notes:  Thrun and buffs. Preferably re-useable ones.  Thrun is tough to kill. Thrun also hates Fleshbag Marauder.  If Thrun gets suited up correctly, he can win hard.


Commander:Seton, Krosan ProtectorSeton, Krosan Protector, Magic, Odyssey
Name: Doo-Dads
Style: Ultra-Mono, Tribal
Tribe?: Druids
Want to play?: 4
“Good?”: 4
Like?: 4
Deck Notes:  It is easy being green in this deck. Just about every creature in it taps for G because of Seton, and it loves Primalcrux and Rushwood Elemental for devotion purposes. It ramps pretty hard into some big beaters, so I guess it’s stronger than most of my decks, but it’s still extra restricted, mostly tribal.

Commander: Nemata, Grove GuardianNemata, Grove Guardian, Magic, Planeshift
Name: Plants
Style: Tribal
Tribe?: Flora
Want to play?: 2
“Good?”: 3
Like?: 3
Deck Notes:  I haven’ played this one a lot, but it’s a decent tokens deck. I’ve always really liked Nemata.  It has a mix of trees and other plants, but mostly Fungus and Saprolings.


Commander: Reki, The History of KamigawaReki, the History of Kamigawa, Magic, Saviors of Kamigawa
Name: Green Legends
Style: Theme
Tribe?: Legendary
Want to play?: 2
“Good?”: 2
Like?: 3
Deck Notes: Similar to the “White Wedding” Deck, this deck plays primarily Legendary permanents, though it does have some other supporting cards.  Reki lets you draw lots of things.  I enjoy that I have a White legendary deck and a Green legendary deck, rather than a White-Green Sisay deck.

Commander: Titania, Protector of ArgothTitania Protector of Argoth
Style: Aggro Synergy
Tribe?: Elementals and dead lands
Want to play?: 3
“Good?”: 4
Like?: 4
Deck Notes:  destroying and sac-ing my own lands isn’t something I normally like to do, but I really enjoy sometimes having no-lands in play in this deck. Ghost Quartering your own land for extra profit is also super fun, as is beating with 5/3 guys. This is the deck that gets my one and only Crucible of Worlds and the only deck that I play Wasteland and Strip Mine in. Mostly to use on myself.

Coming soon: Freyalise/Kaysa
