Jamie Wakefield's Secret Force

The Rise of the Eldrazi is near! Prerelease weekends are just days away, but before the Eldrazi, large creatures have been a powerful force (pun intended) throughout Magic's history. One of the most famous large creatures was Verdant Force, dubbed "Best Fattie Ever" by its champion Jamie Wakefield. Jamie even managed to qualify for the Pro Tour using a version of the deck like the one listed here. It benefited from fast mana through Llanowar Elves and Fyndhorn Elves, additional tricks from creatures like Spike Weaver and Uktabi Orangutan, and Natural Order to cheat the Verdant Force onto the battlefield. From there the army of 1/1 creatures it created alongside its hefty 7/7 body were enough to get the job done!
