Creature (1)


My next Extreme Budget deck. This one focuses more on creating elemental tokens and flooding the field with them and being very aggro with them.

Essentially it builds on landfall making it possible to trigger it multiple times while gaining minor life and being very aggro with the creatures on the field.

The ultimate finish is omnath that with the right landfall triggers can drop many 5/5 elemental guys that can really ruing a persons day.

Sitting at around $36 its very budget for the power it puts out.


So I've adjusted the extreme budget landfall to make up for the changes coming with the new set. Now this may change if new cards offer new opportunity for better and cheaper advantages. However until then this is what I had to do. Unfortunately this raised the deck cost to $44 instead of $36 but its still budget albeit on the very edge of not being Extreme Budget. Hopefully I can remedy that with the new changes. So,

Extreme Budget Landfall Version 2.0



3x Rugged Highlands

2x Shamanic Revelation

2x Outpost Siege

2x Frontier Siege

3x See the Unwritten

1x Naturalize

1x Plummet

1x Zendikar's Roil

2x Flameshadow Conjuring


2x Retreat to Kazandu

3x Timber Gorge

3x Shaman of Forgotten Ways

2x Volcanic Vision

3x Evolutionary Leap

2x Retreat to Valakut

2x Stoneforge Masterwork

That's about it. The big part to this change was to adapt to losing Khans of Tarkir and Fate Reforged while also rounding out the deck to something more reliable. I will say losing my Whisperer of the Wilds mana dork was a blow but Shaman of Forgotten Ways is easily making up for it.

As for the performance. I haven't tested it but the previous incarnation won FNM. Beat a B/U control, G/W Ally, U/R Thopter, and B/W Vampire Ally. Went 4-0 in matches and 8-1 in overall games. Once Omnath hits the field the game is pretty much over.

You should think of Sylvan Advocate to get some more two drops and to bring in a good buff later on in the game. This could compliment Omnath fairly well. It would hurt the budget part of the deck though.

The problem is Sylvan Advocate is best with awaken opposed to landfall. I like the card though, despite the price.

Any particular reason you took out Rugged Highlands for Timber Gorges? I mean, other than saving 2 cents?

It's about to be cycled put so I changed the deck to stay standard when Khans and Fate rotated out.

Have you considered Grove Rumbler? I like him way more than Zendikar Incarnate. I do like the deck though so +1 from me!

Check out my deck Scythe Leopard Smackdown (Gruul Landfall) whenever you get a chance!

I think this deck needs more Explosive Vegetation or Nissa's Pilgrimage or Seek the Wilds or Sylvan Scrying.. I think we get the point, more ramp. And wouldn't Valakut Predator be better then Akoum Stonewaker. 2R for a 3/1 trample for one turn feels underwhelming.

What do you think about Leaf Gilder as a cheaper alternative for Shaman of Forgotten Ways?

I like Stonewalker over Valakut Predator because this deck is build around Omnath and the Stonewalker pumping out elementals helps strengthen that theme.

question: why not Courser of Kruphix? im sorry if this has been suggested already, but i had difficulty finding it in the comments.(is there a search function for past comments?). I was thinking it could replace Retreat to Kazandu. I havent playtested it, but my thinking is that it costs about the same, still gains life, is another body, and gives you another chance to find a land if you didnt pick one up. This and Mina and Denn, Wildborn might be kinda awesome, no? Idk, just a thought. I know putting just one in the deck won't make a huge difference, but thought that since it's price has come down from $8 to about $3, it might find a spot in some budget decks :) anyway, love the deck! keep building, my friend. +1 from me.

I would run courser but it's not standard legal. Leave gilder may be worth it over shaman though. Still deciding. The land fetch cards are nice except their downsides almost feel crippling. Nissa's Renewal is better explosive with life gain but costs 2 more mana. Pilgrimage only finds forests and seek and scrying only fetch one with severe limitations.

oh true true! Sorry bout that. Would you have any cards you would love to add to make the deck Modern?

blong217 says... #16

Oh so so so many. Let me get back to you with a more defined list. Maybe I'll make a modern budget version.

February 26, 2016 6:01 p.m.
