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

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

Vaan on Naya Elvish Piper

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.

Nice deck +1! Gyre Sage + Increasing Savagery tons of mana. Overwhelming Stampede nice finisher. Cultivate is another good card forma ramp,Summoning Trap is another good card. You seems a grren lover so what do you think about my hydra deck? Hydra's Menace

LeaPlath on G/W Mana ramp

How much do you know about modern? The ramp decks in modern skip making a 6/6 for 6 who can produce 4/4s. They got right into the on cast exile 2 perms, when attack mill 20 stuff using Tron lands.

For ramp you need to be doing something like the Eternal Witness/Primal Command loop, cheating stuff into play like Through the Breach and Summoning Trap, using Valakut to kill someone in a single turn, or just doing something better than making a 4/4.

You have this deck down as combo, zoo, midrange and ramp, so which is it, because those have very different meanings.

If I was going ramp, in GW, I would probably want to be creature based with a decent scaling top end.

divinagon on Golems are Giants best Friends!

Seems nice, but you need to make your list smaller. I'd probably drop the Summoning Traps to bring your maindeck down to 60 cards, and drop either the Woodfall Primus or Gaea's Revenge. +1

RomulusStrange, as Karzalar stated, the Xenagos works with Emrakul and Tooth and Nail to provide an instant kill effect if the spell resolves. I had Wall of Roots in an earlier list but found that Sylvan Caryatid works better with the Worship in the sideboard and for mana fixing if that's ever necessary. Thanks for your suggestions though! I'd consider throwing a Blightsteel Colossus into the sideboard as a Summoning Trap target, but I don't have one at the moment.

Karzalar, nice idea - but there's no room for it. For every wall I remove, it's one less target for collected company and one less dork for the battlement. Cheers!

Golgari Charm and Abzan Charm are good sideboard cards, they offer lots of utility in a single card. Another sideboard choice is Summoning Trap.

SimicEDHbro on Hammer Smashed Face • Saskia Dragon Surge

An overwhelming majority of your creature cards has a high mana cost, you may want to look at ways to cheat them out. I can think of Quicksilver Amulet, Selvala's Stampede, Lurking Predators, Elvish Piper, Kaalia of the Vast, Summoning Trap, Descendants' Path.

Also, since your running tribal you may want to look at cards like Cover of Darkness, Steely Resolve, and Coat of Arms.

I would also throw in some draw power as well, a Harmonize, Staff of Nin, and Mind's Eye would do quite nicely. Those are draw engines that have always worked really well for in my decks.

I don't see the point of running Primal Surge if your entire deck isn't going to be permanents, but you do you. If you want to keep the deck budget than Zendikar Resurgent is a cheap mana doubler and draw engine. As a Saskia player myself, I like any Saskia deck that I see that isn't the meta aggro or token spam, so I hope you have good luck getting this deck to where it needs to be. Peace brother!
