+1 for Simic and Edric! (I wish I could upvote twice!)

Do you think mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Arbor Elf, or Boreal Druid could see play here?

+1 for Najeela any day!

If you want my opinion on building a competitive varient of najeela combo, tutorsa are the largest thing Lim-Dul's Vault is a personal favorite, yet is very powerful as well, and sees play in nearly every competitive EDH list with both colors.

Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal are also useful if you are willing to spend the money for them!

Mana positive rocks like Mana Crypt, Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox, Grim Monolith and Mana Vault are also very useful!

Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress/Talisman of Dominance/Talisman of Indulgence/Talisman of Impulse/Talisman of Unity, Azorius Signet/Dimir Signet/Rakdos Signet/Gruul Signet/Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet/Golgari Signet/Simic Signet/Izzet Signet/Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Fractured Powerstone, Star Compass, Coldsteel Heart, Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond/Charcoal Diamond/Fire Diamond/Moss Diamond, and Guardian Idol are the two mana rocks I can remember, but all of the two mana rocks are great!

Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, and Arbor Elf are great 1 mana dorks used to ramp out your commander and win conditions faster.

Devoted Druid, Priest of Titania, and Bloom Tender are two mana dorks that can tap for multiple mana, and so are very powerful in competitive builds.

A lot of the above is all I can remember from competitive EDH staples, but check out my primer Why Every Commander is Competitive for further information on building a competitive list!

@DeviousPenguin666 well to be more accurate you can generate 4 mana and then 3 mana not 7 all at once. You acheve this by playing Arbor Elf on turn 1. On your next turn if you haven't missed a land drop you can enchant an untapped land with Utopia Sprawl, now if your elf has survived you can tap and untap that land to generate 4 mana in total. Using your 4 mana to cast Garruk Wildspeaker activating his first ability to untap your two land. Because one of your lands now taps for double you would now have three mana available. A turn 2 Garruk followed up by Tireless Tracker or Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is usually a pretty hard to deal with start. Alternatively dropping a planeswalker and a Rain of Tears turn 2 might actual make some tears rain. ;)

Blue_Flame thats actually a really interesting idea. My only hesitation would be that could interfere with my Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx plays, but thats not a big enough hindrance for the benefit Blood Moon can have versus so many decks in modern.

The Voyaging Satyr idea is very enticing, especially because it has synergies with most of my ramp. I might replace something different than Noble Hierarch though just because if I don't draw Arbor Elf, the next best thing is a turn 1 mana dork. Exalted is kind of just a bonus effect that I took for granted over the stats of a Llanowar Elves but it might not be the right play. I'll look into adding Satyr for sure.

Sure thing. Sorry that took a while:



Mana base(33 is enough at this average cmc):

That's what I'd do and then playtest it and go tweaking. Hope that helps and also that it wasn't too brutal. For real tweaking please add a list of decks you play against or how a normal game looks like(amount of combo decks, creature decks, control decks per game). You do run lot's of creature spot removal, but I let that in, since you might need it.

Mind If I ask why you don't have a well-tuned landbase (Bayou, all of the fetchlands, Ancient Tomb, Gemstone Caverns), or the best win-conditions (Hermit Druid/Necrotic Ooze), yet have posted this list under the "competitive" tag?

I would really appreciate either dropping the "competitive" tag (to prevent from being a misleading interpretation of competitive EDH) or adding the following:

First off cool deck I like the idea of Arbor Elfs untapping Utopia Sprawls and then just keeping all of the leftover mana with Omnath, Locus of Mana all awesome cards but anyways... The one thing that has always scared me in MTG is playing a fat creature and then having it get spotted down quickly by an instant like Path to Exile before it even had a chance to attack. May I suggest some hexproof like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense cheap yet effective cards that can also pump your boys up at instant speed.. you could even dodge a Dismember on some of your smaller guys with Vines of Vastwood and then swing with the +4 +4 if you kicked it. Since I can see no shortage of manna here you might even consider something like Asceticism to regenerate a bigger creature about to face a sweeper. Lastly I couldn't quite say how these may fit in but some cool cards I like in green stompy are the gods Nylea, God of the Hunt and Rhonas the Indomitable I would say that you could probably support these guys with the type of deck your going for.

nice, my favorite archetype: mono-g ramp! First off, you need to shore up the ramp side of this deck.

Two cards, 4 words: Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl. The most powerful ramp combo in modern.

Next consider 3x of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Play some more devotion style creatures that smash face like Leatherback Baloth to help get it pumping quickly.

Add some Thragtusks to help with burn, it also fairs well against most removal too.

Craterhoof Behemoth is your best finisher. Consider big booty spells like Genesis Wave and Chord of Calling for when you get to massive amounts of mana.

Personally I would trim alot of the fat your deck has, for example Parallel Lives isnt as useful as stuff like Heroic Intervention for a deck that wants to play alot of creatures in a format with plentiful amounts of board wipes. I'd also cut stuff like Garruk's Horde that doesn't really hold alot of value in modern.

Lastly, I would add Garruk Wildspeaker because the card works amazing with your Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl and is just a solid card all around. 3/3s on command is also amazing.
