Greenbelt Rampager Discussion
1 week ago
I run a mono green stompy list aswell, but mine uses Greenbelt Rampagers and Resilient Khenras. I use the khenras over fight effects to give my creatures a bit more punch in combat. (Plus you can chump with him early and eternalize late game for a really good pump+ a 4/4 body) The fight effects are good, but I run them in my sideboard in case there are certain creatures that I need to deal with. otherwise my only interaction with the opponent is smashing their face in with big creatures. The rampager is a very efficient one drop, that works well with Servant of the Conduit since you can extra energy before you cast the servant which means you can still make mana witht he servant if you cast the rampager again. Plus if you cast them both on the same turn that's 3 mana for 5 power on board (which is pretty good imo)

So, I've had some succes piloting this type of deck during the last few months of standard before the bannings. There are a few suggestions that I want to make. First of: Hadana's Climb seems really good, but to be honest, I think in this shell it's too slow. You'd rather want either more creatures going face, more E producers for the pummel damage, or perhaps more pumpspells. For this reason, I'm going to suggest Highspire Infusion, Larger Than Life and Greenbelt Rampager. These cards all like to do what you want to do, at a fair and reasonable cost. I'd take out Built to Smash, a card that frustrated me to no end in the original RG Pummeler list. Used it as well, without a lot of success, as missing pummels as target just makes you feel bad. I'd also reconsider the amount of counterspells, especially Disallow, as it runs you 1UU, could be hard to cast in a three color deck. Either that, or you'd want to run more Servants.
These are just some suggestions, I've had a lot of success with the deck in the past and would love to see more people going face with pummels. Good luck on the list.

Thanks for both the up vote and the comment, Jimmy_Chinchila. I have considered Brute Strength for obvious reasons and seen Greenbelt Rampager and Rhonas the Indomitable in quite a few post-Attune lists. My main issue with Rhonas is that it seems like it won't get triggered enough due to my creatures wanting to get big DURING combat with all of the pump spells, and having 3 mana to get +2/0 and trample is too costly for a deck like this. As for Greenbelt Rampager, it seem s too slow and is not the type of energy sync I'm looking for in this type of deck. I can definitely see how people would like it against fast aggro decks if they are looking to make a deck like this into more of a mid-range deck. As for Consuming Fervor, Built to Smash just seems better in this deck. It is a red Giant Growth in standard that has the potential to give trample. If there is a reason I wasn't running Brute Strength, it probably would be because Built to Smash is a mana cheaper (which is huge in a deck like mine with such a low land count) and it has the ability to protect my creatures well if they get targeted by damage based removal. Also, I just wouldn't know what to take out, lol. Thanks for the up vote, comment, and card suggestions. They are always appreciated!

Looks really solid. The only things I can think of that you might consider are Rhonas the Indomitable, Greenbelt Rampager (as a T1 energy source or a body lategame if Pummeler gets eliminated), Brute Strength, and Consuming Fervor which can be a red Giant Growth of sorts if youre swinging for lethal or Flinging ElecroPum anyways. I also run it with 4x Blossoming which helps when people realize what youre doing. Very nice build, +1

I like that Hadana's Climb Flip should be relatively easy to flip by either using its own counters, or accelerated using a Longtusk Cub or Bristling Hydra that may already have some counters, or at least some energy handy to make some on the spot. The merfolk deck I mentioned above had no problem flipping the Climb on the turn after resolving it by targeting a merfolk that already had one +1/+1 counter.
Here's the decklist from MTGGoldfish at least: UG by VMania. My sideboard guess above was a little off - it looks like this pilot is going for the fast, aggro, under the countermagic plan with 2x Thriving Turtle and one more Greenbelt Rampager in the side.

If youre running Energy creatures you gotta have Aether Hub. Another good one is Greenbelt Rampager. Without a ton of energy sources Id think Ripjaw Raptor would be a better 4-drop. Deathgorge Scavenger, at least in the sideboard, helps with Scrapheap Scrounger in Mardu Vehicles, any Embalm/Eternalize creatures, God-Pharaoh's Gift, and The Scarab God. Looks fun, +1

Just thought of another one: Aetherflux Reservoir and Paradox Engine with a Greenbelt Rampager in hand and a non-summoning sick Servant of the Conduit. Also a Cultivator's Caravan and a Aethersphere Harvester/Deadlock Trap could replace the Servant of the Conduit and either of those could be the third thing brought out or both if you already have one of the other artifact combo pieces on the field.
