RG Landfall Deck




This is my best casual deck that is semi elemental and beast themed. It's built around the landfall ability.advice is appreciated.

Are you building this for Standard or Modern? Because as it stands, it's not standard legal. As for Modern, you'll need ramp spells to get you there faster and buff harder. It could be viable, but you'll need those spells like Cultivate, Harrow, etc. to get there.

If you're trying to make a landfall deck I would cut some of the non landfall, for example Omnath, Locus of Mana, Hornet Queen, Plated Crusher and Savage Ventmaw are neat creatures but don't contribute to the theme. I would also play a full set of evolving wilds and fetch lands, Wooded Foothills, if they're in the budget.

I'd also recommend cutting Akoum Firebird. Six mana for the 3/3 flyer landfall effect is a lot, and add another avenger. Some nice landfall creatures could be Akoum Stonewaker, Embodiment of Fury, Roil Elemental. Another useful creature could be Farhaven Elf as it will let you trigger land fall an additional time while also ramping.

Nissa's Expedition is also a better version of Natural Connection. I don't know if it's your style but Eternity Vessel is a cool gimmick with landfall.

Thanks for the advice! I'm currently a casual player and as of yet have not done any official tournaments or the likes, the deck is meant to be in the modern format. Taking out Akoum firebird, hornet queen, plated crusher and savage ventmaw is not something I'm against doing, although I do like having both versions of omnath. Doing this however leaves me with no protection against flying, is that too big of a problem and if so how can I fix that. I could replace those cards by adding in more ramp such as cultivate, farhaven elf and maybe beastcaller savant.

Maybe even Terramorphic Expanse if on a budget instead of fetches?

If flying is problem you could try adding Gravity Well to your sideboard.

If you're trying to make a landfall deck I would try and stick to creatures with either the landfall ability or ones that tutor land. So I personally wouldn't recommend him.
