Okay the green court and the green mascot legend seems to be the best of the cycle. They couldn't add more cascade to that hydra without using a second line hm? Kind of scary. I think the sphinx is better but this come in second place at least at the moment (for me).
Hah, congrats Dragoon91, you get brownie points. Apex Devastator is hilarious. Don't think it's really that powerful, but hilarious nonetheless.
The Green Court is a weird one. If you're just dropping lands, it's pretty underwhelming, so it has the highest variance in power between Monarch and Monarch-less imo cuz it'll probably draw in a lot of hate to prevent you to get a free Elvish Piper activation.
Apex Devastator is pretty great design. Most decks that can afford to cast it before the 10th turn will probably be hitting two~ish ramp spells off of the four cascade triggers making the card less powerful than it first appears. Though it goes perfectly in my Karametra, God of Harvests almost-all-creatures deck which doesn’t need much ramp to get rolling, since Karametra fills that role. In that deck it might replace Genesis Hydra, which I typically cast for x=8 or more anyway.
