The idea I started with was that green was going to be the control color. I gave each color 50 cards, and this is what I think green should look like at this point.
No Elven Mystic available, but that part of Standard seems to be permanently over. However, there is several fairly efficient manaproducers in the format, like Servant of the Conduit and Rishkar, Peema Renegade and then there’s these two:
There’s also Kiora, Master of the Depths, which might work, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Actually, not maybe quite as much Madness as simply just discarding stuff. And a red aggro deck, with a side of green.
So, how do we keep going with the first ability? Well, here’s an idea: The iconic creature for green is hydra. Make a larger one each turn.
Okay, this one is weird. The curve is very off, although there’s hope.
