Quote from lotushead666@j4s0nly:
Pickles isnt really "pickles" without Vesuvan Shapeshifter. IMHO, since ive been playing this deck for about 5 months now, if you dont have Shifter, you dont have the deck. I mean its how we win against control, how we help the aggro match, and how we absolutely own the mirror, which is a very hard match indeed. I would defnitely look into getting 4 of these if you have none, as they arent really an expensive rare(about 5 or 6 on ebay), and if you cant get them my best advice would be to give the deck up.
Quote from Juventinothat list is awful.
Where are the Shapeshifters and Duals?? I don't see why you would play Brine Elemental and Hermit if you play no Shapeshifter.
If you can't get Breeding Pools and Coasts, you should probaly just play Mono U. That way you only need 2 rares in the deck (Teferi and Shapeshifter)
Also some Trickbinds would be very good SB against projectX and Storm.
Quote from Starlit_HaloShouldn't Ghitu Encampment have a place in this deck for those situations where Wrath of God or Damnation and your next few draws have no creatures in them but I was thinking that 4 cip lands is a bit too much.

Quote from jake123I feel that at the very least, MonoGreenAggro can get away with a 20-20-20 build.
When i say that, i usually like to explain by saying "1/2 your mana dorks don't count." It's Like the 3/5ths compromise of old. When i count spells, I want atleast 20 usable creatures. I usually count Birds of paradise as a creature and Llanowar Elves as not. Now, I know that the elf will be swinging, too, but it keeps the confusion down on what creatures are really "Pumpable"
Here is my version of your deck:

18x Forest2x Pendelhaven4x Birds of Paradise3x Llanowar Elves4x Silhana Ledgewalker4x Ohran Viper (skarrgan Pit-Skulk)4x Scryb Ranger4x Spectral ForceOther4x Might of Old Krosa4x Stonewood Invocation4x Moldervine Cloak3x Harmonize2x Call of the Herd (loxodon Warhammer)
This is basicly the build I've ran for forever...It does pretty well, though i like haste better
