Catacomb Sifter may be a great addition, although I understand you are focusing on a mono-green deck, I feel you'd be able to activates Westvale far easier when you can drop two bodies for three mana. He also has the addition to give you a ton of scry once you activate the Westvale. If you don't like the Sifter, you could use Blisterpod.

I've explored BG, look through this pages history for details.
I've tried Blisterpod in various builds, but it always gets cut eventually. The other 1-drops are much more impactful. Ornithopter works out better then Blisterpod with both Westvale Abbey Flip and Lifecrafter's Bestiary and also with Loam Dryad if needed.

This is a great deck, +1 from me! Also, could you take a look at my deck for some suggestions Who wins the game, Ormendahl!

if you have not updated this deck yet black has some good creatures for this. I believe the fastest is black/white weaponcraft enthusiast is three bodies for three mana. when it is cast off of srams expertise it is six bodies for four mana westvale is ready to flip turn five for sure.

Like the idea of the deck +1 =D
EDIT: My bad, i thought Sylvan Scrying only searched for basics. You'd be unlucky with amount of draw and scrying to not get it out within a reasonable amount of time.
How does the deck perform against aggro, midrange, control decks?

With the main deck against aggro or midrange it's usually just a race decided by luck of the draw.
Against control you need to stick Lifecrafter's Bestiary, then it's easy to grind them out.
It would be easy to build a deck that beats this, but for now most people are concerned with combating the dominant tier 1 decks.

Okay, so how might you alter this list in regards to when the Zendikar block rotates out? Would you say you'd have to splash another color?

TheRedGoat are you serious? This is a budget deck brewed for the current meta and we will have three new sets of cards that no one has seen by rotation.

This is really cool! Looks like a fun way to take down an opponent... and is a homebrew, which are da best. I can only think of a couple ways to beat him in the meta:

@PlagueRats: Honestly, yes, I am serious, as even though the deck as a whole will rotate out it is obvious most of your cards will stay in rotation for a while. No, it will no stay permanently, but no deck in standard can do so and say it always uses the exact same type of cards.
The fact that your particular brew is a budget build feels more like an accomplishment than a self set restriction, so don't knock it for that. And, even if I tried to take the brew in a new direction for the next set myself, I personally feel like your version here is the most thought out "Ormendahl" deck that I've seen, so I'd want to get your opinions on any potential changes. Such as the replacement of cards that will be rotating out the soonest.
Now if you don't really feel like planning that part of the deck out that's fine by me. I basically just wondered if you were curious about how the deck would move forward like I was.

I hadn't really been thinking much about next rotation. It's kinda been a mess for years, every rotation lately seems to come at a different interval. Anybody remember core sets? What about that twice a year experiment? Right now we are only half way to rotation. right? Check out http://whatsinstandard.com/
After rotation I will probably try to brew decks with four Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Hopefully fit in my playset of Ornithopter... I guess I'll likely continue trying to build decks in the direction of efficient low-cost creatures along with cheap card draw engines. That sort of strategy is always fun in the sense that you always get to play most of your cards and usually have a way to win unless the opponent keeps drawing answers.
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter doesn't rotate, it's almost always a card I want to to play. I've played four a lot and found I always want to either cast or activate it. 4x

Oh, lol well that does work well too as far as full rotation. I think I see the confusion was that I wasn't considering that Innistrad was rotating out at the same time as Zendikar, I thought is was one block at a time now.
I can tell you that if you want to have a similar "blowout" creature build like with Ormendahl, then currently I'm seeing Aetherwind Basker as the biggest if not the best one.

about that thought knot seer in the maybeboard....
i dont think it fits in your deck because you want to be doing better things like flipping westvale abbey on turn 4, and one of them doesnt work well at all, this is aggro, after all :D
March 29, 2017 3:24 a.m.
Thought-Knot Seer seems great for game three to be able to take out their answer and know if your threat will be safe. I want one. If I owned one I would probably play it, but it's out of this decks price range.

This is a very sweet deck, and definitely fun to pilot. I played it against my RPG forest deck, and managed to eke out a win in games 2 and 3 against your deck, even though you got Ormendahl off in every game. It was a hard fought battle, though.
