    Repudiate looks interesting, possibly even base deck.
    Noble H + B-Lotus can accidentally supply U for the Replicate part. . . wonder if I have a Tropical Island (? U/G multi).

    Stifle effect is cute in a pure green deck, maybe I should just play Stifle?

    2nd out of 19 with a Homebrew GREEEEEEEN is quite satisfying.
    Some of those wins were fast, some were overwhelming, some were close.
    I think I lost 5 games for the day, with 11 games won.
    Combo is hard. Flash was a problem, but seems to have been pointed out of existence. It has been replaced by empty deck wins.
    Hmmmmm

    Pulled 2nd out of 19 at General Games yesterday.

    The Black Lotus in this is just great.
    Turn 1 rude is so much better than turn 1 Sol ring, then turn 2 rude, especially when then might kill to Sol Ring.

    I went
    Win, Win, Win, Loss, ID
    Win, Win, Loss

    The first loss was to Turn 1 Mana Crypt into a Karn in game 1
    My game 2 was a turn 1 Lotus into Strangleroot & Talara’s Battalion
    His game 3 was Turn 1 Mana Crypt into a Karn
    . . Which seems a little nuts

    My loss in the grand final was
    Game 1 He Combo won on turn 5. (He was very dead if I got a turn 5)
    Game 2 He Combo won on turn 5. (He was very, VERY dead if I got a turn 6.)

    1- Forest, NobleH
    2 – City of Traitors + Garruk, get a beast
    3 – Attack for 4. Play a Yavi Dryad, to fetch a Woody Dryad. Play a Orien-Reef killing the city. Untap forest + yavi. Play a tarmogoyf. Tap the Orien-Reef to add a counter to Dryad, Dryad & tarmogoyf
    4 – double tap the Orien- Reef
    5 – He Wins. (Garruk was ready to apply the overrun)

    Game 2
    Attack with a size 7 Hydra on my turn 5, he blocks with Taisugar, Golden Fang, and wins on his turn 5
    I think.

    Lost to two combo decks. not quite sure what to do about it.
    Hall of Gemstones maybe?

    Deck is good.

    ‘Budget’ – Tee hee….

    Sideboard
    SB: Grafdigger’s Cage
    SB: Uktabi Orangutan
    SB: Collector Ouphe
    SB: Constant Mists
    SB: Wheel of Sun and Moon
    SB: Groundbreaker
    SB: Giant Solifuge

    SB: Choke
    SB: Tsunami
    SB: Walking Ballista
    SB: Spellbane Centaur
    SB: Ice Storm
    SB: Thrun, the last Troll

    Commentary :
    Mana dorks were All Good.
    Paradise Druid + Rattleclaw M were both just fine. Rattleclaw did unmorph once. I think Paradise D hiding did matter just once.
    Skylasher got Abrupt Decayed into not working, which seems fine.
    Library worked the one time it got seen.
    Ramunap Ex hid
    Yavi Dryad was good. Getting the Dryad Arbor and forest walking is Good.

    Boon Satyr was Bestowed once, for the win.

    Stag was never on the board
    P Serpopard was eh, and boarded against non counter players.

    Turn 1 Steel Leaf is silly, Turn 2 is just fine.

    Questing Beast + NullH + Shifting C were Good.

    Vengevine was HILARIOUS, the one time he appeared. I discarded him to my opponents Oona’s Prowler, cast 2 creatures, and got him out. 🙂

    WLL was good, but not discarded.

    Garruk is HUGE
    Harmonize works
    Titania won a game
    Whisperwood got on board, and mattered
    Mistcutter Hydra is GOOD. Really solid.

    Nissa did not shake the world

    GSZ is excellent. Always Good.

    Dryad Militant worked, as always, nailing their grave.
    Pelt Collector was OK, but not special
    Tarmogoyf was fine
    Avatar of the resolute was OK, never got counters, never did something special, but did have 3 power and trample.

    Lands
    Centaur Garden hurt a couple of times, and was not used for bonus. Still seems worth it.
    Strip Mine was Strong
    M-Factory & Mutavault did attack.
    City of Traitors was Excellent. Most excellent.
    Nykthos did tap for mana, twice

    Changes, In :
    Black Lotus was HUGE !
    Reclamation Sage got a blood moon, total. Wasn’t special
    Phyrexian Revoker was never useful
    Scavenging Ooze never activated for an effect.

    Commentery Sideboard :
    SB: Grafdigger’s Cage
    SB: Collector Ouphe
    – never subbed

    SB: Constant Mists – never cast, subbed once
    SB: Walking Ballista – never cast, subbed once
    SB: Wheel of Sun and Moon – never cast, subbed once

    SB: Choke
    Cast once, did enough for the win

    SB: Tsunami
    Was seen by opponents bauble on top of my library. Made him splutter, and avoid islands.

    SB: Groundbreaker
    Subbed in a couple of times
    Seen once and put on the bottom in a 6 card mulligan

    SB: Giant Solifuge
    Subbed in a couple of times.
    Cast once, worked

    SB: Guttural Response
    Subbed a couple of times, never seen

    SB: Carnage Tyrant
    Complete Bomb. Worked repeatedly

    SB: Spellbane Centaur
    Subbed in against the blue boys. Works against Oko especially.

    SB: Ice Storm
    Subbed a couple of times.
    Never cast. Seen for the first time on last turn of the tournament.

    SB: Thrun, the last Troll
    Was not special.
    Did get subbed in a lot.

    SB: Uktabi Orangutan
    Got a U-Jitte. It mattered and worked.

    Conclusion :
    Out – Nissa should leave.
    In – Carnage Tyrant should be main, replacing Nissa.

    Maybe Out – Revoker, Scooze, Rec-Sage : Unproven
    Ramanup Excavator – misses the wasteland badly. Just isn’t brutally aggressive enough

    Cage , Wheel, Constant mist & Thrun are all feeling nervous

    Maybe in –
    Dealing with stupid no library combo win :
    Torpor Orb – Stops the Oracle

    Thran Foundry – Stops the T-Oracle from winning, IF there is 3 cards in their bin. Putting the tainted pact in a small group of cards, and having them win next turn would suck…. Hmm. Wouldn’t happen since they wouldn’t retrigger the Oracle. Hmmmmmmm

    Krosan Reclamation – Might be able to interrupt the win sequence of the T-Oracle by putting 2 cards back in their library. Ah. They still win. Well, it does have flashback, so it does work when cast twice at instant speed. 1G + 1G = Stop that. Provided they have 3 cards in the bin, which is likely. But would be disappointing if they don’t.

    Tangle Wire – Really gets in their face, short term
    Winter Orb – Permanently Gets in their face

    Plow Under – Gives me 2 turns of grace to kill them, but, costs 5
    Jester’s Cap – Costs 4, and then 2

    Rushwood Legate – More Fuel against stupid Blue decks, but, is it worth it? This is the equivalent of a single free green mana, but only on the draw.

    Oxidize – kills turn 1 Mana Crypts, but even that may be too late

    I am trying to think of cards that force them to draw a card in green at instant speed, and I am drawing a blank.
    Cheap by preference, but, well, I aint seeing any in my collection. Admittedly, it s not the sort of card I have collected.
    Hmmmmm.

    Torpor Orb, Winter Orb and Tangle Wire all seem good to go.
    Jesters cap may just be too expensive, but does solve more than one problem.

    Viel of Summer is hard to ignore, but, well, just doesn’t feel right.

    Went 3/3 At Moxing Day Melbourne.
    Good Times.
    Hard fought every round nothin’ easy. And nuthin’ really went off!
    I did not see my points, and they did not do enough when they did.

    Having the U/R player read & re-read my creatures was terribly amusing. 😛
    .

    + Regrowth
    + Black Lotus – ‘Budget’ Status 🙂
    + Eternal Witness
    – Sol Ring – Hmmmm and another point

    Not sure about Eldritch Evolition & Ravenous Slime & ?? (+Natural Order + Progenitus )

    Played Ravenous Slime in the board.
    Never needed or contemplated needing him.

    —————–

    Possible points – GREEN Edition – Highlander Points List

    4 points: Black Lotus

    3 points: Mox Emerald, Sol Ring

    2 points: Channel, Library of Alexandria, Mana Crypt, Strip Mine

    1 point: Birthing Pod, Crop Rotation, Fastbond, Green Sun’s Zenith, Hermit Druid, Life from the Loam, Mana Vault, Natural Order,
    Oath of Druids, Sensei’s Divining Top, Skullclamp, Survival of the Fittest, Umezawa’s Jitte, Wasteland

    4+10+8+14 = 36 points available for purchase

    maybe I should think about diversifying…

    Ooeee that is hard to justify, but, turn 1 with a 4 drop does sound OK.
    Regrowth suddenly gets better, as does another way to pick up from graveyard.
    the Strip mine is looking hard to justify, as, is it better than the GSZ? with another point suddenly rattling about I could play a Jitte.
    Or a Natural order.

    Regrowth & Eternal witness & basedeck wants the Strip Mine. They clash with GSZ which shuffles back in.
    GSZ is awesome, and loves Ravenous & Dryad. Hmmmm
    Berserk has been a hmmmm too.

    Not sure where I stand on the flow on effects of playing a Lotus, like, suddenly there is no Strip mine, so is the Excavator worth the slot any more?

    I do the math a Bit. An the Lotus just seems more impressive.
    Turn 1 Sol Ring, sit there, just doesn’t compare with Nulhide Ferrox, go.

    Sure, on turn 2 it might cast goodness, and then on turn 3 it will be overpowered once more, hopefully, but that is turn 3, if it lives.
    Turn 1 garruk, 3/3 is also just good. Turn 2 he is a Sol Ring, hopefully.

    Yeah. time to play my Lotus.

    Pan Glacial Wurm looks pretty tempting after a Lotus….

    Some people foil their decks.
    I am foil-ing my decklist. 🙂 (Colours, headings and editing.)

    I spent some time on BBCode is, feel free to use the cheat sheet.
    This deck is NOT a budget decklist, it just happens to be GREEN.
