M:tG Cribbs #40: Standard DE with Mono-Green

Ryan pilots an odd Mono-Green decklist into a Standard DE. It’s got some seemingly mediocre beasts in it, but can it take home the gold?

You can find Ryan on Twitter @mtgcribbs.

  1. I’m not sure what to think of that deck. I love mono-greens in general, but this one looks quite underpowered.

    Are the mystics really needed in a deck where the curve tops at 3 (well, except for like 2 cards). I have a feeling a 1/1 often doesn’t help there, and your need for mana is pretty low.

    Or if you wish to keep them, i would add instead at least some polukranos or some arbor colossus, just some dude that can say to the board “hey, i’m the guy”, without getting wrecked by anything with more than 3 toughness ^^

    Anyway, was still interesting to watch, and I think you were also a bit unlucky with lands in some games ^^

  2. Love your videos, but this deck was just terrible. The idea of playing Mending Touch in standard is nauseating, and most of the creatures seem to be to low impact for the board state.
