Episode 4 – The huge hits continue as we approach the release of The Lost Caverns of Ixalan! We use Delighted Halfling and Gwenna, Eyes of Gaea to ramp into huge creatures, and Up the Beanstalk to keep our hand full of problems for our opponents and answers to whatever our creatures can’t handle. At the end, we look how to keep the fun going into the next set with a preview of some of the best Green Dinosaurs and utilities!

Decklist for playing the deck after the Ixalan release:
Delighted Halfling, Gwenna, Eyes of Gaea, and Up the Beanstalk combine to deliver some of the best ramp in the game, and use it to send green’s trademark creatures across the battlefield to claim victory and quick scoops!
We also get a bit of ramp and removal from our adventure cards Beanstalk Wurm and Stormkeld Vanguard, without sacrificing slots for our gigantic creatures – speaking of which, Gigantosaurus and Tyrranax Rex just deliver huge damage. With Gwenna, Rootwire Amalgam becomes just ridiculous, easily dropping at full strength, and, later in the game, transforming the same turn into a 15/15 haste out of nowhere. Vorinclex gives us some ramp without sacrificing brawn, and Defiler of Vigor makes everything we run cheaper & bigger.
Despite the smooth mana of a mono color deck, you’ll want to mulligan if you don’t find early plays.
