Plated Crusher Discussion

I'll laugh when someone playing GU ramp sideboards in Dispell for those boardwipes.
This thing is one Mana less than Plated Crusher, plus has uncounterable. I think it'll hang out and make some noise.

Cool deck! Gilded Cerodon and Sand Strangler feel a bit out of place for me as you are only running two deserts and that's the only synergy with them in the deck. If you're looking for a cheap big hitter you could try Plated Crusher.

If you're trying to make a landfall deck I would cut some of the non landfall, for example Omnath, Locus of Mana, Hornet Queen, Plated Crusher and Savage Ventmaw are neat creatures but don't contribute to the theme. I would also play a full set of evolving wilds and fetch lands, Wooded Foothills, if they're in the budget.
I'd also recommend cutting Akoum Firebird. Six mana for the 3/3 flyer landfall effect is a lot, and add another avenger. Some nice landfall creatures could be Akoum Stonewaker, Embodiment of Fury, Roil Elemental. Another useful creature could be Farhaven Elf as it will let you trigger land fall an additional time while also ramping.

It's a mythic level Plated Crusher. Pretty sick for 6 mana I gotta say

Green Ramp has so many possibilities:
Khalni Hydra can come out for free sometimes
Did you say spot-removal? my Plated Crusher don't know what that means.

You're right about the Wild Cantor's, now that I think about it they're a relic from when the deck was still three-colored and the mana-fixing might've been relevant.
I'd prefer creatures with either haste or comes-into-play/on-cast effects for the bigguns, or at least evasion. Chaos Imps and Gravetiller Wurm I had lying around and at least they've got the evasion part down. I kinda hoped that I'd churn out enough creatures and get enough value out of them before they bite it for instant-removal to not be too much of an issue, but I might be gravely mistaken on that front.
Plated Crusher's got a lot goin' for it ((Generator Servant could help with haste), but flavor-wise it just doesn't feel appropriate. The little guys are literally burning themselves alive (along some trees) to summon something, so I'd rather the result looked somewhat supernatural or at least creepy and monstrous, like Gravetiller Wurm and Decimator of the Provinces.
Nonetheless, Deus of Calamity seems legit simply because of how much it could cripple opponents if left unchecked, as you said. Since it's cheap to afford I might even grab 4 copies.
Any ideas for additional haste-granting to the bigguns?
Thanks for your feedback!

I'd get two more Tinder Wall and two more Orcish Lumberjack in place of the Wild Cantors - they're much more explosive in terms of mana production.
For your big creatures, it might be wise to invest in things that protect themselves - Plated Slagwurm or Plated Crusher are good examples. You wouldn't want to sacrifice three creatures just to play a big one, only for your opponent to kill it immediately! I also like Deus of Calamity a lot, since if you can get him out fast enough, you can keep blowing up your opponent's lands before they can mount any kind of defense.
