Recently, I wrote about a Mono-Green Stompy deck that I had been working on. It wasn’t the most competitive deck, but I had been getting decent results with it and it felt like a breath of fresh air after playing a ton of Ragavan decks. You can check out the article for an idea of what it looked like:
I really liked playing with this formula of eight Hierarchs, eight cantrips and a low land count. It granted me access to consistent mana in the early game and the ability to top-deck spells more often than most opponents in the mid to late game. Unfortunately, when piloting this deck, it did feel like the threats were a little lackluster, and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out if there was a different way to build the deck. It took me longer than I’d like to admit, but I eventually remembered that at one point in Modern there was a top tier green aggro deck that relied on Hierarchs and cantrips: Eldrazi.
After cutting the more lackluster threats, swapping Oath of Nissa for Ancient Stirrings, and revamping the mana with the colorless splash, I started playtesting. I’ve really liked the deck so far and this is the 75 I’ve settled on for the time being.
