Summoning Trap

Instant — Trap

If a creature spell you cast this turn was countered by a spell or ability an opponent controlled, you may pay 0 rather than pay Summoning Trap's mana cost.

Look at the top seven cards of your library. You may put a creature card from among them onto the battlefield. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

Summoning Trap Discussion

you should probably add in Heroic Intervention to help protect against board wipes, also sweet is Wayward Swordtooth a 5/5 for 3 that lets you play an additional land per turn but cant attack or block until you have the city's blessing which should be easy for this deck. i would probably cut Summoning Trap and one of your worst elves for these cards

Hey! What you guys think about Summoning Trap instead of Ancient Stirrings to make it even more budget

Summoning Trap seems pretty inconsistent. I would recommend Primeval Titan and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. You should also add the 3rd and 4th Voyaging Satyrs to the maindeck

Hey there! This looks like a really sweet deck! If you're focusing on Dragons, I would recommend adding in some copies of Dragonlord's Servant and Dragon Tempest; they're a couple of cards that often get overlooked in Dragon decks. If you're looking for cuts, I'd recommend starting with Gruul Ragebeast, Inferno Titan, and possibly Atarka, World Render. Also, just so you know, See the Unwritten is probably better than Summoning Trap unless you're playing in a meta with a bunch of counter-heavy decks. In any case, have fun!

I also really like cards like Summoning Trap, See the Unwritten, Lurking Predators.

If you're gonna focus on Elvish Piper to cheat big creatures into play you should streamline your deck a bit. I would cut the 4 Woolly Thoctar and 2 Wild Nacatl for +2 Elvish Piper, +2 Elvish Harbinger and +2 Llanowar Elves. Knotvine Mystic is too color restrictive to your current mana base, so i would cut it for +3 Fyndhorn Elves or +3 Birds of Paradise.

I would also cut 1 Plains and 1 Mountain, since most of the cards we want to cast are green and we have A LOT of ramp, 20 lands is just fine.

You only have 3 big creatures and 4 fetchable cards for your 4 Time of Need, so i would either cut Time of Need for +4 big creatures or for +4 Fierce Empath.

Try cutting Growth Spasm and Lightning Helix for +3 Beast Within, Might of the Nephilim is a very subpar card, cutting it (and the 2 lands) for +3 big creatures or Natural Order would give the deck a good boost.

Protean Hulk and Craterhoof Behemoth are good additions, if you can find space on the deck and the budget allows it.

For the sideboard you can add Summoning Trap, Obstinate Baloth and Nature's Claim.
