Description

The fastest way to destroy with Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip - Mono green Budget

Maindeck Strategy: Win game one by attacking with a turn four or five Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip then, do it again game two!

Prioritize ramp creatures first Loam Dryad -Druid of the Cowl, then the Scion makers; Scion Summoner- Eyeless Watcher . You can wait until whenever it's most efficient to cast Sylvan Scrying or any of the eight one-drop death-touchers; Permeating Mass - Narnam Renegade . Hold on to Westvale Abbey  Flip and Ornithopter unless you need them for mana, often you can flip Ormandahl a turn earlier then an opponent could expect by sacrificing a Scion for ramp and replacing it with an Ornithopter or two.

This deck doesn't play any threatening creature cards, so there are no profitable targets for even the cheapest removal. This can be played to effectively dodge a lot of potential disruption opponents may have if they don't feel like they're under any immediate threat from Westvale Abbey  Flip.

This deck will find one of four Westvale Abbey  Flip just about every game with four Sylvan Scrying and very reliable access to card draw when required. Sea Gate Wreckage and Geier Reach Sanitarium are the best secondary targets for Sylvan Scrying. The only real non-land non-creature cards are four Lifecrafter's Bestiary, perfection in a deck with nothing but cheap creatures and lots of land. It's like having 10 chances of drawing a card draw engine, but only costs four card spots. Lifecrafter's Bestiary lets you dig deep into the library to find any missing piece when needed, but it's really more of a fail-safe backup plan only. Don't waste a turn casting it if you already have a line of play that should let you flip over Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip

The best part of this deck is that it plays 17 copies of the second best card in Magic, Forest!!!


Sideboard strategy: If you either lose game in a bad way or expect to see a lot of Ormendahl hate, the sideboard is full of long term value generators and late game win conditions plus four Heroic Intervention to protect things. Side in all 15 and destroy opponents by going wide while they're playing around Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip

I developed the sideboard deck independently and only had to make a few compromises to fit it all in. From Beyond is a one card combo win, fetching Decimator of the Provinces once you have a critical mass of creatures. I've had a lot of success playing four Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter in token decks, you can usually make a construct token that's bigger then any creature on the board every turn.
