Omnath, Locus of Mana; Butcher Chef in Chief
To protect Omnath there are cards to bring him out of the graveyard like Evolution Charm, Regrowth, Revive, and Wildwood Rebirth in addition to Regeneration, and Spider Umbra. Omnath can be a huge card for only three mana, and it may have to be cast several times either from the graveyard or the commander zone, but that's just the way the game goes. Omnath is both great for ramping as well as in offense especially it can win games with cards like Infiltration Lens, Primal Rage, Rancor, and Trailblazer's Boots; if you feel daring going in for a late game kill, you might want to slip Strata Scythe, or Blanchwood Armor on Omnath if he has trample, non-basic landwalk, or can be made unblockable via a card such as Rogue's Passage.
Board wipes are often a problem for green. Hopefully, Momentous Fall, Fecundity, and Bequeathal, can offer some protection.
Defense can also be problematic for monogreen. To help, I have Ambush Viper, Mitotic Slime, Prey Upon, Ulvenwald Tracker, Turntimber Basilisk, Lignify, and Mortal Wound.
