Yams on Ramp with walls

4 weeks ago

Switching out Stalwart Shield-Bearers May not be a bad idea. Also, since both Assault Formation and Tooth and Nail are wincons, I'd suggest doing 4 of each. The odds of finding the first reaches 60% by turn 6 instead of 10 and you have a 52% chance of seeing the second by turn 4 as opposed to 42%, which is a big swing (up to 60 - 63% when using Wall of Omens.

Also, you shouldn't do 2 emrakul, you're better off with just 1. This deck has very restrictive requirements and the gain of a second emrakul just isn't worth it. Although it works when Emmy is thoughtseized, since it's legendary you can't tutor 2 if xenagos gets discarded, setting a 2 turn clock with lone emrakul as opposed to 1 turn with the wurm helping.

Also, be careful with 4x on sideboard since it limits your options, though you'll side in Autumn's Veil in most of matchup and Heroic Intervention in many cases (as it protects xenagos from Dismember during combo).

I'm sure you know how this plays better than I do, but I'd suggest Creeping Corrosion since it kills affinity, Condemn or Dawnglow Infusion to gain life against burn and scapeshift, and Mwonvuli Acid-Moss to disrupt eldrazi tron while ramping yourself. When sideboarding, cut either Perimeter Captain or Wall of Tanglecord depending on the matchup since they don't ramp or cantrip.

Thanks for the suggestions, @TheVectornaut! I love the Umbral Mantle + Axebane Guardian combo. Sadly, Umbral Mantle and Genesis Wave are a little bit out of this deck's price range (the goal is to stay around the $30 mark).

I like Wall of Tanglecord more than Carven Caryatid simply because it costs one fewer mana and is an incredible defender in the early game, although the card draw does make Carven Caryatid an attractive option.

Feed the Pack and Sheltering Word are great suggestions. I'm definitely going to add Sheltering Word to the sideboard, and I'll put Feed the Pack in the maybeboard for now. As for Colossus of Akros, I'm very tempted to add it in, but I think this deck has enough potential win conditions as is, and adding another might make it too unfocused.

I run a mono-green wall deck with my win condition being Genesis Wave off of Umbral Mantle + Axebane Guardian or Overgrown Battlement. Besides Assault Formation, Colossus of Akros and Feed the Pack are strong finishers. Blue also has Freed from the Real which is pretty nice and red has Banefire. One card I'd suggest for any green defender list is Carven Caryatid. It ups your defender count while replacing itself, unlike a more vanilla wall like Wall of Tanglecord. If your meta is slow enough, Traproot Kami might be an alternative to Wall of Vines as well.

For the sideboard, I really like Sheltering Word since it slows down burn and protects against single-target removal.

i like the combo, but i think other landfall would be more helpful than a lot of the creatures

a really good one would be Baru, Fist of Krosa

Bramblesnap would help use them all etb for a beater right away

Tireless Trackerfor infinite draw/huge beater,

Retreat to Kazandu infinite life/huge beater,

Timber Protector help protect everything,\

Embodiment of Insight would help cash in immediately with bigger threats

i would take out Wall of Tanglecord,Overgrown Battlement,Predator Ooze and Tukatongue Thallid

Wall of Tanglecord isn't really needed. I can understand a fear of fliers, but I feel that it could be better suited to something else. Maybe another wurm, like Wurmcoil Engine, or a wall that provides mana, like Vine Trellis. I'd recommend Whip Vine, but unfortunately it's not modern legal! Good luck with your deck!

I don't like Unravel the Aether, Time to Feed, Prey Upon, Chitinous Cloak, Cathar's Shield, Wall of Vines, or Wall of Tanglecord.

I'll come up with more suggestions but definitely Terastodon.

Wall of Tanglecord might be a better option than Consulate Skygate.
