Rampaging Baloths Discussion

TheHelvault on R/G Landfall

4 days ago

If I were you, I'd pick one: Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths. Baloths is cool and all, but Omnath gives you a bigger creature for just 1 more mana invested. Maybe run 2 Omnath and add in another Scythe Leopard, cutting the Rampaging Baloths completely.

Lightning Strike should be Lightning Bolt, saving you one mana to do the same thing. Bolts are expensive unless you buy them heavily played, and your local card shop probably has them for $1.50 each.

Either the Crop Rotations or Adventuring Gear should come out to add in more lands, because 19 isn't exactly enough for this deck. I think crop rotation should come out because all it can really do is fix your mana by getting rid of a forest and grabbing a mountain or Rugged Highlands. I would cut the Crop Rotations (or trade them for Lightning Bolts) and add in 3 Evolving Wilds, which will give you 2 free land drops when you play them PLUS allowing you to mana fix.

Hope I could help!

Sorry for the delay, I've been away for a few days without internet access :) Your answers give you a good starting point. Landfall is typically an aggro style deck due to the temporary pump effects creatures get from the ability. However, there are a bunch of creatures that receive permanent boosts when lands enter the battlefield (not landfall ability but to the same effect). So here is what I believe your options are:

1) A red/green deck utilizing 50% land fetch spells and 50% creatures that benefit from landfall or have landfall. In regards to the latter I'd be looking at cards such as Scute Mob, Vinelasher Kudzu, Undergrowth Champion and Rampaging Baloths as your beaters.

2) A green/white deck utilizing lots of land tutoring combined with a land sacrifice element. In this option you would have Knight of the Reliquary at your helm who grows bigger and bigger. Plus her ability allows you to tutor any land which not only pumps all the cards suggested in option 1, but also allows you to search your library for key lands such as Kessig Wolf Run. Of coarse you can also consider Retreat to Coralhelm which has an infinite combo with Knight of the Reliquary. The great thing about this deck is you can add a splash of blue and red to the deck without being woried about being mana screwed. This is because you can simply add one of each land you need and search for it with the knight should you need it!

3) A green/red elemental deck featuring Omnath, Locus of Rage. In this instance you can tutor lands in as before and generate lots of elemental tokens.

If you decide on any of these options I can assist further with more card choices.

Seance goes really well with Populate, especially since the populated token doesn't get exiled, and can help you recover from a sweeper. Back from the Brink is sort of the same thing, just you also have to pay the cost, and you can do it as many times as you want per turn.

Cathars' Crusade, Beastmaster Ascension, Intangible Virtue, and Collective Blessing are always nice cards for token spamming decks.

In terms of creatures, you also can try out Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Giant Adephage, Hornet Queen, Rampaging Baloths, Geist-Honored Monk, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, and Growing Ranks.

For some wipes, you can try out Hour of Reckoning, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Martial Coup.

I take it you are just going for a standard "Green/White Goodstuff" kind of build? Obviously with Karametra's ability, Landfall is a great mechanic, so cards like Emeria Shepherd, Rampaging Baloths, and Avenger of Zendikar are wonderful.

Knight of the Reliquary and Rampaging Baloths. These are older cards and might not fit into the format you are playing.

@Entari0, I don't play Golgari much, but now I can definitly see the appeal.

As telling you what you did right is kinda pointless as you probably already know, I shall now proceed to tell you what i think you did wrong. (MWAHAHAHAH ahem)

Speaking as a Rakdos, Lord of Riots main, you need to work on flyers. You only have one that is a decent size, Rune-Scarred Demon, that apparently you're going to remove (yes, I know Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest gets real big, real quick, but still...). Against a deck that mains flyers, your gonna have real trouble. Just throw in a couple of spiders and you'll be fine.

Another problem that you've probably thought of is graveyard hate. This stuff usually comes in the form of artifacts: think Tormod's Crypt, Cranial Archive and Relic of Progenitus. You should run artifact removal more that just World Breaker, Krosan Grip and Petrify.

I think you should throw in some more retrace, the others aren't as good as Worm Harvest but they're all right. Delirium is a decent mechanic, same as landfall (think Rampaging Baloths).

That's about it I think. I obviously haven't played the deck so I can't provide more than just superficial tips.
