Blighted Woodland Discussion
1 day ago
clayperce, first off, thanks for the comment and upvote. The Jaddi Offshoot works surprisingly well, especially considering the two additional lands I run, including the set of Evolving Wilds and the two Blighted Woodlands, so it gets an A in my opinion. Now, for your suggestions.
Hissing Quagmire is basically there in a last-resort blocking scenario, or when I need to use it to close out the game with a few other creatures. Other than those times, I basically never activate it.
Regarding the flyer hate, I really don't see that many fliers at my LGS. Honestly, the last time I think I saw a flyer was blue/white flash in Kaladesh Standard.
Blighted Fen is an interesting thought. However, there always seems to be a throw away creature on my opponent's field whenever I've tried it out in the past, so it's kind of a turn off for that reason.

jparker-sartori21 and Argy,
Yeah, both Blighted Fen and Blighted Woodland would be great, but I think the manabase is just too tight. As I mention above, that's one of the big appeals to a straight Golgari build.
Yeah the cycling lands have proven to be really good in here, and I'd love to have more. I hadn't even noticed that the HOU Deserts have cycling, so thanks TONS for mentioning them! They're slow of course, but they're absolutely insane with The Gitrog Monster (b/c you draw 2 cards from them whenever you cycle).

This deck is a little messy, so it's hard to say what to take out and what to increase in numbers.
At first, maybe you want to take a look at a pretty interesting (though Bant coloured) landfall deck: Moonfall
You definitely can drop the following: Synod Sanctum, Temple Bell, Pinecrest Ridge, Natural Connection, Grazing Gladehart, Solemn Simulacrum, Retreat to Kazandu and Zendikar Incarnate. This makes fourteen cards less. Then you should also drop some basics to get to somewhat around 15 of these. With the rest of your lands, you'll have 24. That's enough. We now have shrinked your deck by 33 cards and are at 63 cards if I counted properly.
From here on, I'd drop the two Blighted Woodlands and the silvan primordial. This would put the deck at sixty cards with an ok amount of 22 lands. Sounds a lot better. And now, you could play some games and start tweeking the numbers of your leftover cards.

Idk ... the more I think about Excavator the more I like it!
The Gitrog Monster saw some play in Sultai Aggro back in OGW Standard, and most of the pieces are still available. Seems like a BGx deck, with Excavator + Cycling Lands + Blighted Fen and Blighted Woodland would be FNM-playable, at least. And Tireless Tracker + Evolving Wilds wants Excavator for sure. And we're supposed to get more Land - Desert cards in HOU (like Sunscorched Desert), so it'll be interesting to see what shenanigans are possible there.
And yeah, being a three-drop makes it super-slow for Modern, but between Fetchlands, Horizon Canopy, Ghost Quarter/Tectonic Edge, and Chord of Calling/Green Sun's Zenith, I bet there's a deck. Or maybe in a Life from the Loam shell?
We'll see ...

So Ramunap Excavator was just spoiled for Hour of Devastation, and I'd love your thoughts on what that might mean financially.
- How low do you think Crucible of Worlds, Crucible of Worlds (10E), and Crucible of Worlds (5DN) will go?
- Does this make The Gitrog Monster Standard-playable? If so, how high might Gitrog go and for how long (since it rotates out in Sep)?
- Also seems good in Standard with Tireless Tracker + Evolving Wilds, the new Cycling Lands, and the Blighted cycle (especially Blighted Fen and Blighted Woodland). Not sure about Modern, but with Fetchlands, Horizon Canopy, Life from the Loam, Ghost Quarter/Tectonic Edge, Chord of Calling/Collected Company, and probably many others, it seems like it might see some play. I can't really imagine it in Legacy and Vintage, except maybe in some deck playing Wasteland? All that said, do you think there's any chance it might impact the prices of any of those cards?
- Finally, how high do you think Ramunap Excavator itself may go? Of note, the spoiled card is the Draft Weekend promo, so the supply will be much higher than a 'normal' Rare (by an extra 24-48 per store).
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

As much I Admonition Angel is a great card, I don't know if its worth splashing white just for him, specially it being a 3/W/W/W.
Other then that, I really liked your deck. I would add Blighted Woodland for 2 potential land drops, and I recommend cards like Borderland Ranger or Dawntreader Elk (a cheap beafy card that can give some mana acceleration.)
There are some life giving landfall cards that can help you get through the early game like Grazing Gladehart or Jaddi Offshoot, although I think it would be counter-productive in such a well built combo like yours. Maybe worth putting it in the maybeboard against early agressive decks.
I have a mono-green landfall deck, you may want to take a look. It's pretty lame because I only build ultra-budget decks. My take on Mono Green Landfall

4x Dungrove Elder
2x Kalonian Twingrove
2x Primeval Titan
4x Sakura-Tribe Elder
4x Bosk Banneret
