Other than the obvious deck thinning, what are you using the fetches for? Because that is a major cost in your deck, and a potential 7 life loss. Other than that, I might suggest 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, 1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and 1 Empty the Pits. Your devotion it pretty good, plus I'm guessing some of your early game plays, fetches, and creatures are in the yard. Even if you only get 5 of them with devotion and delve...5 2/2 zombies can be pretty devastating. Especially with a whip out to gain you that life. :)

You don't need thirty land, probably twenty-three or twenty four, at the most. Add some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. This isn't a standard deck, either.

I love mono green stompy mana ramp!

Just some cards I would recommend for what you've got going would be:Creatures:Primalcrux Strangleroot Geist (I love this for early face beating and adds great devotion like you have)To help get the big guys: Dramatic Entrance Quicksilver Amulet Elvish Archdruid (if you plan on staying heavy elves for ramp) The only reason to keep those Voyaging Satyr is to untap Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx so I would either add some Sylvan Scrying to make sure you get that set up or just go full on elves for ramp.

A lot of modern decks are pretty damn fast and if they're not, they're usually looking to control the battlefield. I'm not sure who you play against and how competitive, but if you're looking for competitive than you will certainly need to work out a sideboard (which we can all help with!) More casual? This deck can wreck face!Good luck!

Guys, he can ramp INSANELY if he has more than one Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in his hand.


He has one on the field, and one in hand, along with say, 6 devotion.

Taps two land to activate the first Nykthos, floating 6 Green.

Plays the other one, Legendary rule, so he puts the tapped one in the graveyard.

Uses 2 of the 6 floating mana to activate the new one, for a total of 10 mana.

Hey man, I love Primal Surge! I like this deck but I really would suggest you add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as it is both cheap right now and amazing in a deck like this, and consider cutting back on the instants because they non-bo with Primal Surge. Just run less is all.

You have 2 options really... 1) Add more beasts! :)

Some of my favorites: Craterhoof Behemoth, Rampaging Baloths and Thragtusk.

And 2) replace instants with Enchantments! :)

Again, some favorites: Descendants' Path, Leyline of Lifeforce, Rancor, and Utopia Sprawl.

Lastly, Genesis Hydra is amazing, but really shouldn't be played with Primal Surge, as will be . :(

Since you only ever need one Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, you might want to consider dropping one for another Temple of Malady. +1

I'd strongly recommend a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, being a mono green deck that devotion adds up quite quickly and I can vouch for the effectiveness of Pattern of Rebirth and Defense of the Heart, they've helped me get out big creatures, pattern specifically all for the low cost of a token creature of some sort.

I'm not an experienced player but I'm not really sure why you'd add the 4 Radiant Fountains and then throw an Urbog in just to make them playable, you could use Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Crypt of Agadeem as they're both good lands.
