MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Ramp Cards

To everyone mentioned in this comment:

Thank you for your comments, and I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to reply to you. Between managing all my lists and setting up everything to be able to post commander gameplay videos to my YouTube channel, I have been overloaded with work. Thank you for your patience :)


Voxzorz, after coming back to this list, I've decided to not include the majority of spells that ramp up by a single mana, so Recross the Paths is no longer a spell that would fit to this list. (If you would like to see my reasoning for that, simply read the disclaimer at the top of the description of this list. Thanks!)

Gaspacho, thanks, I've removed those group hug cards except for Tempt with Discovery, because you will always get more ramp than each opponent regardless of how many fall into temptation. Also, after coming back to this list, I've decided to not include the majority of spells that ramp up by a single mana, so Spoils of Victory is no longer a spell that would fit to this list. (If you would like to see my reasoning for that, simply read the disclaimer at the top of the description of this list. Thanks!)

Intergalactic_Hegemon, after coming back to this list, I've decided to not include the majority of spells that ramp up by a single mana, so Sea Scryer is no longer a spell that would fit to this list. (If you would like to see my reasoning for that, simply read the disclaimer at the top of the description of this list. Thanks!) As for one-time-use mana acceleration, my reasoning for not including them is this: If you use mana acceleration at the beginning of the game, your board state will be much better than each opponents', which causes opponents to become more afraid of you, which in turn makes it much harder for you to win as your opponents are more likely to be focusing their attention on you instead of on each other; if you use it towards the middle of the game or later, you give up explosiveness to do a smaller version of what these types of ramp spells do. Either way, since the average game is about 11 turns long, it makes no sense to try to replace cards that give a significant permanent boost in mana with ones that give a temporary boost, even if that boost is much higher.

TheDeckMaker2300, Patron of the Moon is a fantastic inclusion, thank you!

xevecx1, after coming back to this list, I've decided to not include the majority of spells that ramp up by a single mana, so Yavimaya Dryad, Yavimaya Granger, and Dawntreader Elk no longer are spells that would fit to this list. (If you would like to see my reasoning for that, simply read the disclaimer at the top of the description of this list. Thanks!)

Crackbubba, Treasonous Ogre is a fantastic inclusion actually! Consider it this way: If a deck gains more than 9 life a turn, Treasonous Ogre can activate up to three times in a turn!

What about Treasonous Ogre? Or does that fit in the limited number of uses clause?

Felidar Sovereign, Test of Endurance, Aetherflux Reservoir will win games for a high life total.

Treasonous Ogre is some of the best ramp a life gain deck can have, it will cover all your generic and red costs.

Book of Rass will provide card draw, goes great with the ogre and a really high life total for drawing more than you will ever need.

Azor's Gateway  Flip flips to tap for an amount of mana equal to your life total.

Well of Lost Dreams more cards!

I'm sure there are more things that give an effect for spending or having a high life total. Try scryfall's advanced search looking for things that include "pay" "life" scryfall allows you to only include things that match the commander's color identity.

talisman of impulse is probably supposed to be Talisman of Indulgence

are alloy myr and opaline unicorn better than Iron Myr and Leaden Myr?

is Treasonous Ogre something this deck would want?

Cloud Key and Foundry Inspector are extra jhoira's familars

do you need all the wincons? if you have more ways of drawing cards when you're comboing off i think you'd need less wincons

Overall super clever deck! It's refreshing to see how every commander has a combo that goes with it lol

At the moment I'm running Fragmentize over Nature's Claim as I wanted to avoid giving my opponent life. But I'll probably swap claim in as it's better in general. I should probably be running Carpet of Flowers as it gives me red mana, I'll swap that in as well.

I was wondering about Diabolic Intent myself. It seems good, and a nice way to reset Saskia. I'll try and make some space for it as well. Treasonous Ogre feels a bit slow and costly however. It's cute for paying for Aggravated Assault but at 15 life per attack phase it's a bit too much with little to no life gain.

Thanks for the suggestions though, this is exactly the kind of feedback I'm looking for.
