Prior to the Field of the Dead ban, Selesnya Adventures was poorly positioned. Golos decks would blunt its early aggression with Realm-Cloaked Giant and overwhelm it later in the game with an unlimited hoard of 2/2 Zombies. Even Edgewall Innkeeper can't keep up with "play a land, make two Zombies."

Since the ban though, Selesnya's go-wide strategy has helped it counter format-villain Oko, Thief of Crowns. Elk-ing Selesnya's creatures just makes them bigger, and stealing them one by one is too slow. If you're tired of Oko's nonsense, this is where you want to be.
