ace247 on Green mana ramp

2 minutes ago

Here is a list of ramp cards from my Omnath, Locus of Mana Commander Deck:

And here are some also very effective, but more expensive options:

I would recommend removing:

  • Archers' Parapet, since you don't run black and a 0/5 wall isn't great.
  • Gift of Paradise, since paying 3 mana for only one extra mana per turn is not ideal and there are better ramp options.

Here is my full Omnath Deck if you would like to see more options:

Omnath, Glutton of Mana (Budget)

Hope this helps.

legomanalec on Mono-Green Beast Creature Type Deck

I understand why you put the Urza lands in here, but really they don't belong in this deck. The only time they would be useful is in a Tron deck. It seems you are going towards the "Stompy" Mono green type of deck, in that case you should impliment some cards like Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic for some nice mana and board state, Having a bunch of elvs in play also combos pretty well with Khalni Hydra. Titanic Growth and Rancor aren't needed since your creatures are already so big. Exploration is a great card for ramping.

Winterblast on List of EDH Ramp Cards

Lotus Petal, Mox Opal and Chrome Mox are missing...and what I'm missing as well are all the important 1 drop mana elves, such as Arbor Elf, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid and for two mana Bloom Tender. Carpet of Flowers is also a great card, even produces mana in the 2nd main phase on the same turn it has been played!

DiabolicEsper on Borborygmos, Destroyer of Value town

skyninja135 your average cmc is too high (3.81) and your Abundance combo is solid but there's a lot of win more cards in there (whats Worldspine Wurm and Realm Seekers doing?). A number of your artifacts don't seem competitive at all, Storm Cauldron, Horn of Greed, Ghirapur Orrery all benefit the opponents as well which is something you want to avoid (except cards like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds), giving them extra lands basically speeds up their game plans as well. Most of the creature ramp (Wood Elves, Yavimaya Elder etc.) you got can be cut for normal dorks ( Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves etc.). I get the fact that you want to ramp heavily with lands, but most of the spells that enable you to do so are rather slow; compare Cultivate to Mox Diamond, of course, mox may be out of your budget but this kind of ramp allows early explosive turns ( after all you're aim is to pull off the combo asap) rather than a slow accumulative ramp (someone's bound to go off before you do). You can take out the landfall theme it's just not fast/strong enough. I'm unsure what the optimal land count for a deck like this would be, but removing the tapped lands is a definite (Temple of Abandon, Evolving Wilds) and adding in off-color fetches (unless your budget prevents you but it should be one of your top priorities). Also, why no artifact hate? Just some other cards that I think should be cut:
- Seek the Horizon (for 4?)
- Tempt with Discovery (letting the opponent search for a land is not a good idea)
- Rites of Flourishing (should really be adding cards that benefit yourself like I mentioned above)
- Constant Mists (unless there's someone who plays the kiki combo)
- Knollspine Dragon, Kodama's Reach (let's be honest: it's too slow)- Krosan Tusker (better options out there)
- Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya ( 4cmc is a bit too much for this effect and they don't really do anything else, you also want enough lands in the library for Borborygmos to discard)
- Temple of the False God (when you can just replace it with an Ancient Tomb)
- Centaur Vinecrasher (yyyy?)
- Kessig Wolf Run, Thespian's Stage (kessig if you must, but I don't see the value in stage)
As for the cards, you'll want to add:
- The green tutor package (Worldly Tutor, Sylvan Tutor etc)
- Taiga (when you can ocf)
- Red Rituals (Desperate Ritual, Rite of Flame etc.)
- Mana Rocks (Mana Crypt, Mana Vault etc if budget allows)
- Autumn's Veil, Guttural Response, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast to ensure Borborygmos sticks
I believe there's a loop to reshuffle the lands discarded through Kozilek, Butcher of Truth I may be hallucinating tho, but if someone finds a way then the double damage + Illusionist's Bracers package can go.
Either way, I'm looking forward to the development of this list :)

multimedia on Energy Elves (HOU)

23 hours ago

I hope Llanowar is a region on Dominaria we visit. Freyalise saved the Elves of Llanowar from the Ice Age with the World Spell ending the Ice Age and Elves survived the Phyrexia invasion; they're still alive on Dominaria. Llanowar is also one of the most rejuvenated regions on the plane after the invasion which is good if that's the direction that Wizards is going with Dominaria.

The Elves of Llanowar powers were about making mana and ramp. If we're visiting Llanowar then a reprint of Llanowar Elves makes a lot of sense. The problem is ideas that makes sense for Standard is not what Wizards does with Magic. Their track record in the last two years has been shit and because of this I find it unlikely we'll get a reprint or new one mana Elf mana dork. It's possible that with the Eldrazi out of the picture that Wizards will again push ramp as an archetype in Standard which would mean Standard needs a one mana dork. The most logical set to reprint staples which should be in Standard and never leave such as Llanowar Elves, Lightning Strike, Pithing Needle is in Core 2019, the return of core sets.

Unfortunately, you're right the Skyshroud Forest and Freyalise are gone. Freyalise sacrificed herself using the rest of her powers along with all the mana energy from the Forest to seal the rift. It's sad that they're gone because both have great lore especially Freyalise. It would be nice to get a new Freyalise Elf Planeswalker in Dominaria, but I'm not expecting it unless Wizards is retelling the events on Dominaria for nostalgic reasons including the Ice Age and Phyrexia invasion.

gravitydefyinghair on Surrak Dragonclaw EDH

1 day ago

Torrent Elemental is not a legal card with Surrak as the commander. Both colors of the hybrid mana in either the casting cost or ability activation cost must exist in the commander's color identity. So, for example, you could play Giant Solifuge in this deck (not that I would, but it is legal to do so) but it would be illegal to play Nightveil Specter.

I would replace Destructor Dragon with Trygon Predator.

I would take out Frost Walker, Cyclone Sire, Torrent Elemental, Gruul Turf, Gruul Charm, Lightning Strike. Seer's Lantern, Nissa's Renewal, Devour in Flames, and Izzet Boilerworks.

Here's why:

  • Frost walker and Cyclone sire are more 60-card format cards.

  • Torrent elemental is illegal.

  • Gruul turf and Izzet boilerworks seem good, but they're really just strip mine/wasteland bait.

  • Gruul charm is bad. Be greener and invest in trample.

  • Lifecrafter's Bestiary or Thassa, God of the Sea are upgrades from Seer's Lantern.

  • Nissa's Renewal is late game ramp. That's bad. Early game ramp is better.

  • Burn is bad in EDH.

I would suggest (these are all just good cards for your consideration, I know there are probably more than I suggested taking out):

For a 3 color deck, the landbase would also be improved by taking out basics and putting in things like:

Ideally, for a landbase you'd have shock lands such as Steam Vents, fetch lands such as Scalding Tarn, and regular dual lands such as Volcanic Island, but those things are expensive and this is a game.

I forgot to mention that 4 Llanowar Elves alongside your mystics are a necessity.
