Big Green ver 2

    There is an awful lot here that simply doesn`t do anything - I would be concerned that in almost every match you are basically playing with 8 cards, and 52 ways of getting those cards into play.
    Crop Rotation + Enlightened Tutor + Pattern of Rebirth + Defense Of The Heart = 12 cards
    That`s a hell of a lot of search.
    Too much IMHO.

    And what`s the white for anyway? Enlightened Tutor is just draw target Pattern Of Rebirth, and Disenchant has a better card in Green. The only card worth adding in from white to this deck is Academy Rector, while if you are playing sacrifice games (Pattern) doesn`t it make sense to partner your deck with Black?

    Green (25)
    4 Birds Of Paradise
    2 Elven Lyrist
    3 Vine Trellis
    1 Dawnstrider
    1 Rofellos
    4 Yavimaya Elder
    2 Deranged Hermit
    1 Rhox
    4 Pattern Of Rebirth
    3 Creeping Mold

    Black (10)
    1 Boneshredder
    2 Phyrexian Plaguelord
    1 Fallen Angel
    1 Thrashing Wumpus
    3 Duress
    1 Vampiric Tutor
    1 Diabolic Servitude

    Artifact (2)
    2 Masticore

    Land (23)
    1 High Market
    2 Gaea`s Cradle
    2 Phyrexian Tower
    2 Treetop Village
    3 City Of Brass
    5 Swamp
    8 Forest

    SB could be 5 colors if you wanted - but you might need to include a basic land from that color, so you can Elder for it. I think this deck will win a lot of games with Fallen Angel/Deranged Hermit.
    I guess my point being that Pattern isn`t really meant to be used in these 'big green' decks - that`s what Rofellos and PoTitania are for. Pattern`s natural strengths lie in multicolored midgame flexibility, not brute force.

    Honest opinions are what I want. What you said makes sense. Thanks.

    Ok, now how does it look?

    I used Planar colapse instead of Wrath of God, so I could Tutor for it, and it only needs one white.

    I have Yavimaya Elders, and Crop rotation to get my Yavimaya Hollow, Craddle or High market.

    4 Llanowar Elves
    4 Vine Trellis
    3 Yavimaya Elder

    2 Thorn Elemental

    Artifact: 3

    2 Rod of Ruin
    1 Thran Foundry

    Spells: 15

    3 Crop Rotation
    3 Enlightened Tutor
    3 Pattern of Rebirth
    3 Seal of Cleansing
    2 Defence of the heart
    1 Planar Colapse

    Land: 23

    3 High market
    1 Gaeas Craddle
    4 Brush Land
