I'mma be real with ya, chief... make Gargos, Vicious Watcher your commander. If not him, then Rosheen Meanderer . There is no reason for Gyrus, Waker of Corpses to be your general, as he's literally antithetical to casting X-spells! He can get almost none of your stuff back; just cut black and red, add some cards like Drumhunter , Abzan Beastmaster , Tuskguard Captain , Spearbreaker Behemoth , Moss Diamond , and heaping piles pf ramp.

In fact, if you want something a little less typical, it may be better to make a Marath, Will of the Wild deck with Paleoloth s, Spellbreaker Behemoth s, and all the removal, rocks, and ramp your heart could desire.

Still, that's all my opinion. Your deck is yours.

I would swap some of the wurms out with some more ramp spells. Granted you are in a budget so I would say cards like Moss Diamond , Selesnya Keyrune , Rampant Growth , and Search for Tomorrow would be some good additions. Also get up to 34-36 lands since you have got a lot of high drop creatures and missing land drops will screw you over in the long run.

@Vlasiax, Moss Diamond is currently the weakest 2 drop mana ramp in the deck. Gyre Sage seems like it's a good fit. But I've used it before in other decks and I just think it's too slow, then dies to removal. I think I will change it with Gaea's Touch . I honestly think that card should be seeing more play in mono green decks.

I'd swap Moss Diamond for Gyre Sage because it has potential of becoming huge mana dork and another big beater later.

Maybe cut Emerald Medallion & Moss Diamond for Mana Crypt & Birds of Paradise ? The latter is more fragile but a turn quicker and has various synergies in the deck. The lower CMC of both cards overall helps against mana screw as well ofc. I think you should consider Myriad Landscape too since it's basically a CMC 3 ramp piece that pulls double duty of helping you stay on curve, although IDK if it should replace a land or nonland then.

I could also see cutting Lifecrafter's Bestiary for either the mentioned Elemental Bond or Guardian Project . While the latter is more expensive, I think you'll draw more cards from it than the Bestiary since you don't need to pay an extra for every single creature spell.

Other than that, those CMC 4+ non-Hydras probably still need to be reduced to an additional extent, up to you to see what's underperforming

SynergyBuild on Why Rampant Growth is bad.

"Yes, price. Rampant Growth is ~20 cents right now. Sure Gruul Signet , Golgari Signet , Simic Signet , Prismatic Lens , Llanowar Elves , Fractured Powerstone , Moss Diamond , Growth Spiral , Explore , Coiling Oracle , Broken Bond and tons more examples are equal to it or cheaper, but I am aware someone will bring it up."

Dear pskinn0,

I am very sorry all of the local game stores have had buyouts of the above, quoted cards. It is a real shame to know that you also aren't within the world that tcgplayer, card kingdom, or cfg will ship to. I'd recommend running an additional land to the decks that run the growth. Thank you for your response.


But seriously. No possible replacements?

SynergyBuild on Why Rampant Growth is bad.

Ramp, card draw, and fatties are the 3 cornerstones of EDH as a concept to many players. Rampant Growth , Rampant Growth is the symbol of one of these three cornerstones (I am sure you'll never guess which one).

I am here to tell you, despite what you may have been told. It is bad. Really bad, not even medium bad like Cultivate (Yes, I hate that too, outside of some specific lists like Tatyova, where it belongs to some extent).

Why? Well, to start, mana production. It doesn't give you mana immediately without Amulet of Vigor , unlike 2- mana manarock variants like the signet cycle ( Azorius Signet , Gruul Signet ), talisman cycle ( Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Progress ), Mind Stone , Prismatic Lens , Fellwar Stone , etc.

So? Many decks are mono-colored and can't use signets, or talismans, or have cards like Null Rod / Kataki, War's Wage , etc. or go up against them often. Rampant Growth gives a land. Well, Nature's Lore and Three Visits both give you an untapped land, they can hit Shocklands or Duals to get your colors better than Rampant Growth , and generally are pretty good.

What else? Growth Spiral , Explore , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Farseek , etc. all do Rampant Growth better, and aren't even good.

None of these are great cards. Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , Elvish Mystic , Boreal Druid , etc. all do it for half the mana, a turn faster, and are in green. How is a 2 mana card better?

Fast artifact mana or land mana like Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Sol Ring , Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond , Ancient Tomb , Gemstone Caverns , etc. all do more work in almost all cases.

Enchantment mana like Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , Fertile Ground , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration , Burgeoning , etc.

Even Broken Bond or other cards with ramp attached can do more work. Farhaven Elf or Wood Elves with an elf-tribal deck, or dorks, etc.

So, with all of this, is there any real reason to run the cancerous growth (see what I did there xD)?

Yes, price. Rampant Growth is ~20 cents right now. Sure Gruul Signet , Golgari Signet , Simic Signet , Prismatic Lens , Llanowar Elves , Fractured Powerstone , Moss Diamond , Growth Spiral , Explore , Coiling Oracle , Broken Bond and tons more examples are equal to it or cheaper, but I am aware someone will bring it up.

There are too many better cards for lands-matter decks to use it, and too many are cheaper, equally cheap, or better and worth the cost to claim they are the reason Rampant Growth should see play, etc.


Seriously. If you run this card, stop.
