What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

Ravenous MonoGreen Control

Pretty much the same as my other MGC deck, with a few changes to increase aggro and change around the control aspect.

(just kinda ignore most of the stuff underneath here, havent updated any of it yet)

>the control aspects of the deck>
Umbilicus Buy- the star of the deck, makes them return permanents to thier hand, while you take advantage of it
Ice Storm Buy/Creeping Mold Buy-
{removed}land control, of which reccurs
Tangle Wire Buy- they tap 4 things a turn... and you just return it to your hand w/ umbilicus instead of tapping
Mishra's Helix Buy-
{removed} not only does it tap out thier mana, gives me an outlet to put extra mana i have so i dont suffer mana burn
Rishadan Port Buy-
{added} awesome land control, finally got some
Root Maze Buy-
{added} added control, suppliments w/ tangle wire and umbilicus nicely
Winter Orb Buy
{added}- much faster than thermokarst, and i can wish for Seedborn Muse Buy if it hurts me too much.
Boseiju, Who Shelters All Buy
{added}- Sometimes it's incredibly vital to be able to resolve Living Wish Buy, Naturalize Buy, and Bind Buy... most often i'll SB this in and get it out w/ Crop Rotation Buy

>use umbilicus for other things too>
Eternal Witness Buy- each turn recast witness and get back some LD. incredibly effective w/ emerald medallion in play
Wall of Blossoms Buy-
{removed}card drawing
Multani's Acolyte Buy-
{added}card drawing, elf tribal increases mana accel from priests
Tangle Wire Buy (as stated above)
Deranged Hermit Buy-
{added} pump out more squirrels each turn (which will also pump up the cradle)
Wood Elves Buy-
{removed} fetch more forests which will thin out the deck, and pump rofellos up

>mana acceleration>
Llanowar Elves Buy/Fyndhorn Elves Buy
Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary Buy
Priest of Titania Buy
Gaea's Cradle Buy + Deserted Temple Buy
{removed} temple is nearly useless w/ orb out
Emerald Medallion Buy
Exploration Buy

>efficent beatdown>
Killer Bees Buy
{removed} a green nantuko shade w/ flying, great outlet for extra mana produced (deranged hermit seems to be enough beatdown)
Masticore Buy
{sideboarded} awesome card to pump mana through
w/ living wish i can retrieve
Deranged Hermit Buy dropping one of these gives you 4 2/2s for {5}cc! what's not to love?
(rest in SB)

>card drawing>
Wall of Blossoms Buy
Multani's Acolyte Buy
Sword of Fire and Ice Buy-
{added} added especially for card drawing, but has other benefits
Slate of Ancestry Buy-
{removed}if the swords dont give enough card drawing, these will be used instead

>Toolbox sideboard>
it's mainly a utilty sideboard built for Living Wish Buy.
Dosan the Falling Leaf Buy- helps out a lot against burn, bounce, and counter spells... even if only during my turn...
Dust Bowl Buy-
{removed}nothing special here, other than i cud retrive the lost lands w/ umbilicus+eternal witness
Skyshroud Poacher Buy
{mainboarded}- this would probably be my first wish, with it is great to grab the hermits from my deck, or rofellos.. and since i only have one... best for him to be in the SB so i can wish for him.
Chalice of the Void Buy
{removed}- after SBing games usually get incredibly easier w/ these.. destroys red deck wins if they cant find an answer and slows down the rock and U/* control
Darksteel Colossus Buy-
{removed}beatdown at it's finest (but not needed for deck to be efficent)
Terravore Buy-
{removed} more efficent beatdown, usually i'd go for the colossus, but if i know they are running furnace dragon or i dont have enuff mana (or it there are just a crapload of lands in graveyards) i'll wish for this
Eladamri, Lord of Leaves Buy-
{added} save my poor lil elves from being anihilated via spot removal, and occasionally lets them swing in for hit when they arent being used for mana
Stampeding Wildebeests Buy-
{added} umbilicus on a stick!
Bind Buy
{added}- works better than Chalice, esp against Solidarity, not to mention is an cantrip.
Squallmonger Buy
{added}- a viable Hurricane Buy on a stick, can end the game pretty quickly if they lose life from Umbilicus Buy at all
Seedborn Muse Buy
{added}- more utility for matchups, lets me attacka nd still have blockers, nullifies orb's effect on me
Duplicant Buy
{added}- removal... great in conjunction w/ Umbilicus Buy

rest is pretty self explanitory.

and that's the basics of the deck, thanks in advance for comments and suggestions.
please if you dont understand the deck, you can leave comments, but please dont rate it. thanks.
