Ryanh12 Thanks for the comment!

If you havent built this deck yet you really should. It is an absolute blast! It’s actually one of a few decks I have that the commander generates card advantage naturally.

On to your suggestions...

Crucible of Worlds is a card I’ve thought about long and hard before because it certainly fits the theme of this deck but I’m not sure the true value is there. I already run Ramunap Excavator which I think is strictly better, and if I was to put it in I’m not sure what I would take out in its place. I’m all ears for your opinion on that if you are willing.

Courser of Kruphix is something ive known about but havent gotten my hands on yet. Love this suggestion and it really should go in.

Blighted Woodland is another fantastic suggestion. I will need to get one of these as well!

Bayou is just too much $$$$.

It’s funny about Dryad Arbor because a friend of mine pulled off that t1-t2 tutor for it a few weeks ago. Agreed on this card that it should go in.

I like hydra suggestion but not sure what i would take out for it.

Sylvan Safekeeper and Sylvan Library have been on my long list of cards to get.

Thanks! These are helpful. And i would be interested in hearing what you would take out for some of your suggestions!

I like this deck. Gitrog has a lot of potential and I personally would love to make a deck of my own.

I'm not sure of what decks are played in your meta or your budget, but here are some suggestions!

  1. Crucible of Worlds : Self-explanatory... a very consistent recursion outlet.
  2. Courser of Kruphix / Oracle of Mul Daya : This helps to cheat in lands from our library so we can draw the cards that we actually want each turn.
  3. Blighted Woodland : A budget fetch land (personally I'd run at least 5 fetches in this deck, but I know they can become quite expensive...).
  4. Bayou : Dual Land
  5. Dryad Arbor : This is such a versatile card because it serves as ramp, board presence, and is a sacrifice target (double triggers; creature + land) all while being a land. I like to search it out turn 1 with Green Sun's Zenith to get early acceleration in the game (plus, if it dies, you can just recur it!).
  6. Ulvenwald Hydra : This serves as a land tutor plus a big beater later in the game.
  7. Sylvan Safekeeper : Protection!
  8. Sylvan Library : Literally the best card advantage you can get in green.

Hope this helps! Let me know what you think.

Owlskins Thanks! It's performed really well so far, I'm going to be upgrading to 4c (no blue) Lands, because I've sold basically my entire trade binder so that I can get Bayou , Taiga , and Badlands , but I've liked this version so much my 4c lands deck is going to be modeled after this.

bushido_man96 on Why Rampant Growth is bad.

3 months ago

In general, I prefer mana rocks and dorks for ramp over cards like Rampant Growth , Cultivate , and Kodama's Reach . I generally don't even like to use cards like Skyshroud Claim if I don't have to. Its ramp for 4 CMC, which I just don't like the exchange of. What I do like is the value that card provides in four and five color decks where I can run a Bayou and a Tropical Island .

Where cards like Rampant Growth and others like it tend to have an upside is against artifact removal and hate cards like you mentioned. Vandalblast sucks when you've filled the board with mana rocks, and dorks die to board wipes. The Growth isn't a good exchange; you are right about that. But once that Forest is on the table, its got a higher probability of staying around for the duration of the game.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I generally agree with you, and prefer different forms of ramp (generally). But Rampant Growth and cards like it can be ok to run at times.
