Recently, I mentioned how I thought Innistrad: Crimson Vow was more about powering up existing decks rather than creating entirely new ones. The three decks perceived as the best, Izzet Epiphany, Mono-Green Aggro❄, and Mono-White Aggro❄, all got meaningful upgrades, which meant they were likely to remain Tier 1 even after the new set. Last week I talked about Mono-White Aggro❄. Today I'm going to talk about Mono-Green Aggro❄.

We don't have a whole lot of data about Innistrad: Crimson Vow Standard. It's still quite new and will likely only settle after the Innistrad Championship at the start of December, but there have been some tournaments that we can draw information from, and Mono-Green Aggro❄ has done pretty well in those. For reference, here's the list from Matheus Yakio Yanagiura, who finished in second place in the Silver division of the RedBull Untapped 2021 tournament with a list that I believe is very close to optimal:

Mono-Green Aggro❄ is a beatdown deck through and through, but it's more of a "midrange beatdown" rather than super-aggro like Mono-White Aggro❄. You're more of a quality over quantity kind of deck and you're trying to curve out. There are arguments for playing other colors alongside a green base, but the biggest selling point for Mono-Green specifically is that it enables the snow cards — Faceless Haven and Blizzard Brawl.
