Today we take another trip on the Paper Champion time machine back to 1999.
Many players at the time were running something called an Enchantress deck, a deck focused on getting a Yavamaya Enchantress into play and dropping pounds of enchantments into play. The resulting trample damage was usually too much to bear.
I’m typically not a mono-green player but I tripped up on several cards that really worked together. Keeping with the Enchantress deck skeleton, I developed a lock down combo as well as an additional beat stick in the form of the legendary Multani Maro-Sorcerer.
4x River Boa
4x Wild Growth
This part of the deck was a typical blueprint of an Enchantress deck of it’s time. As you can see, the Enchantress could put out some serious damage. With the Llanowar Elves, Priest of Titania and Wild Growth, mana won’t be an issue. This is just part one of a three pronged strategy for this particular deck.
Rofellos is a green mana factory. Any time you can tap one creature to potentially double your mana production you will be tough to beat. Now what if you could potentially tap one creature to tap all your opponent’s lands each turn? Mishra’s Helix makes that possible. Typically, you will have just as many lands as your opponent, if not, it’s not like this deck is strapped for mana production and the difference can easily be made up by using other mana elves or Forests. The Helix is easy to cast early with the considerable amount of mana you can create.
What better way to punish a player that can’t play spells? Multani can dish out huge damage to players that hold their cards and has Shroud to boot. This legend is one tough customer and is a brutal way to end games once the lock down is established.
The deck is a very strong kitchen table contender and will frustrate your friends to no end. Multani Helix runs just under $100.
