Okay so this is not strictly possible.

Green really gets the short end of the stick when it comes to removal.

Sure they can take out artifacts and enchantments like a boss but their kill spells are pretty limited. The occasional Hornet Sting, Arachnus Web or Beast Within. Not exactly awesome.

From a differant standpoint though Green mages could be just as brutal as Red or Black if they only used their imagination. Giant Growth alone has just so many applications.

Bird flying over your enemy? Giant Growth the bird. Squish!

Fighting in a low ceilinged cave or under a ceiling fan? Giant Growth and give your foe a real nasty headache.

Your nemesis has a weak heart? Giant Growth his arteries and give him an attack.

Fighting bugs on a plane with especially high gravity? Giant Growth ’em and watch them tear their chitiny bodies apart when they try and move.

But yeah I guess MTG isn’t quite complicated enough for any of this stuff to work.

Buuuuuut… if they ever make a Planeswalker-centric Role Playing Game I’m pretty sure all the best fun would be had playing Green.


You may or may not have noticed that the Green guy has had a bit of a redesign.

I got fed up with how crummy the old design was. Plus it was a real shlep to draw.

I think the change is for the best.
