Mono Green Standard Tron (Standard, Magic Arena)


Hey everyone! Thanks for coming and hanging with me this week as we have a best of one series that doesn't require us follow a budget! How are we starting this series off? How about some standard Mono Green Tron?

Gameplan

The reason it's called Tron is that in Magic's past, there was Urza Tron which required you to assemble three specific lands in Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, and Urza's Tower.  Although we don't have any powerful lands like that, we still play a big mana game plan by focusing on ramping as much as possible and dropping a non-stop flow of bombs like Ugin, the Ineffable or Nissa, Who Shakes the World

We even have a potential turn 3 Karn just like the other Tron variations....except these are our Karns.

What does the Great Creator do for us? In a format where there isn't a sideboard, we get to turn ours into a toolbox pulling whatever we need for whatever situation. One of the best things you can do is power out a God-Pharoah's Statue early to shut off a ton of aggro decks and to tax control decks into one spell a turn. We also have wonderful things like Crucible of Worlds to attack mana bases of all the decks right now as they mostly play 1 to 2 basic lands. We can also grab Sorcerous Spyglass for problematic activated abilities. The Transmogrifying Wand is for problematic creatures like a Crackling Drake or some big threat as we just turn it into a 2/4 goat. 

Conclusion

This deck has served me well and has helped me climb to high mythic on stream so I'm not surprised this deck can win. Its problematic matchups are hyper-aggressive starts from Mono Red or White Weenie but I've won about 50% of those matches which isn't bad as most decks can't beat fiery hot starts from those two decks. However, this deck can go big and will eventually run our opponent's out of answers as we just jam a crazy amount of Must Answer threats. 

Moving forward, I'd look into adding Planewide Celebration in the main deck to fight the decks that have discarded or removed a ton of our bombs. It also does crazy work as it can gain us a silly amount of life. For the sideboard, I'm probably going to be adding Helm of the Host, Sentinel Totem, Diamond Mare, and Junktroller. All of these cards feel like a strict upgrade over some of the things I have, as some of it was mostly for the memes. I honestly feel that the deck could be insanely good if M20 or future sets give us even better artifacts as the deck feels like it just needs some solid board sweeping artifact.

See you at the next one!

Rankle has the best pranks and it just happens to line up with 8-rack style of decks. Let's see if the new Rankle on Arena can cook up some more funny business.
