Single Scoop: Definitely Mono Green (Explorer, Magic Arena)

Game Plan

So mono green is never a deck I'd play, but I figured, why not improve the archetype I despise in Explorer?

Well, the beauty of green is that it is rarely held back by mana problems, so I figured we put that to the test by combining its ramp cards like Paradise Druid and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove to cast some of the best green cards Magic has to offer.

Obviously these are some of the best threats to jam in a mono green deck because let's be honest, the best Grixis deck just needed green, right? On top of that, we have cards like Storm the Festival to help us emulate the Collected Company effect but for powerhouses like Nicol Bolas, heh. If all of this fails? We can try to just use Nissa, Who Ruins My Day, along with Cavalier of Thorns to help us close out games.

Conclusion

We're a deck that caves upon a single one-drop hitting the board, but if we're still alive around midgame, we can take over by dropping huge haymakers over and over! The deck probably could use more ways to fight off the early game, and we can easily drop Leyline of Sanctity, but I wanted to meme a bit against Thoughtseize and Invoke Despair. Anyhow, the deck has massive timmy vibes so if you're a fan of dropping big things on the board, this can be the chaos you want. Just pray nobody touches your mana fixing!

Thanks for watching the content.

The ladder hasn't been respecting fair Magic and is loaded with combos so it's time we keep them honest with some honest Magic :)
