Whenever an opponent plays a land, you may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield.

Burgeoning Discussion

Burgeoning seems a bit greedy with 30 lands. I would run a big boi Emrakul, the Promised End over him. Yes, I know this is Cedh but wouldnt it be funny to Aetherflux everyone else with your opponents Scepter combo

Fun deck, +1 from me!

Walls & Creatures to consider: Wall of Tanglecord , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Sylvan Caryatid , Wall of Nets , & Wall of Junk

Burgeoning is good if you need a little ramp and you're going up against someone with a landfall based deck... ;)

Good cards to add, just a little pricey ~

lifemtg, I like the idea of running Windswept Heath . I'll give it a go. I'm already running both Burgeoning and Exploration .

Deadpoo111, I have not considered Bolas's Citadel , but it does look interesting. It could get a lot of artifacts out quickly, for sure, and the sac outlet part of it could be useful, but I'd have to run it to see if I'd like to use that part of it. Its worth considering.

Thanks for the suggestions, and the upvotes! The deck just made "top ranked," so thanks!

This deck is sweet! Have you considered Burgeoning ? I think it would be a good addition to the deck.

Idk this is a random suggestion. Replace Golgari Rot Farm for Windswept Heath . Also replace Burgeoning for Exploration although I understand this is not budget, and probably is not worth it for the money unless you get it turn one and then the whole game can change drastically.

Cloudstone Curio has come in and gone out a couple times. The slot it contends with is Words of Wind and since Words can operate both as a combo piece and an offense engine, it wins the slot for now.

Yarok triggers on ETBs. Burgeoning unfortunately triggers on lands being played which is a different event than entering the battlefield. That said, it's still super broken with Overburden or Mana Breach in play.

Hey VexenX, I love Burgeoning in the deck, it is almost if not the best turn 1 play we can have I would be very reluctant to cut it. If you're not seeing the value then of course do what works best with your play style.

In regards utility creatures there are a few I have tested, as mentioned World Shaper is a great Splendid reclaimation on stick, I rarely used it for the attack trigger and it normally got a bolt from Omnath, Locus of Rage or sacrificed to one of our many outlets, comboing this with Sylvan Safekeeper , Titania, Protector of Argoth and Omnath, Locus of Rage on the field is explosive. Other creatures I like but can't find space for are Skullmulcher , a creature + sac outlet and card draw on a body, Green Sun's Zenith or Chord of Calling this guy out when your sac outlets have been removed or countered to finish of a player second main phase, remember it is a may ability so can still keep enough tokens out for defense if needs be. The other option which is slightly less value but more reliable and cheaper CMC is Gluttonous Slime , this doesn't have the card draw but is an instant speed sac outlet. If I could find a space for one of them I'd include them but I haven't been able to justify the slot yet. There is also Silverglade Elemental and obviously Wood Elves , I used to run the latter and use it as a Natural Order target. I would typically do the same with Dryad Arbor keeping an uncracked fetch in play so I can find the Dryad Arbor when it's time to cast Natural Order or if you need a blocker at a push.
Some food for thought..

_Arra_: I think you are right about Chord of Calling . I think I might cut Burgeoning for it. Burgeoning has almost always been a disappointing card for me. The only time I actually like it is when I have Ghost Town (which will get cut too). This will allow me to add both Green Sun's Zenith and Lotus Field . Do you think this is crazy?

I also think you are right about removing Sylvan Scrying for Elvish Reclaimer . Do you have other suggestions as we move more into utility creatures?

Frank_Glascock: Ya, I think Sylvan Safekeeper for Lightning Greaves is happening.
