Standard BG (Golgari) Ramp



Creature (2)


My goal is to mana ramp into dreg mangler, deadbridge goliath, and primordial hydra. I will then use rancor and/or increasing savagery to punch through the opponents defenses.

You have too much swamp. Since you have overgrown tomb and woodland cemetery, thats technically 8 swamp which is enough. Maybe just 1 or 2 more swamp basic land, and the rest forest.

Hey there, looks like a fun deck, but I dont see why you have card:Avacyn's Pilgrim when there's so many nice green mana producing alternatives? You already chose Arbor Elf why not combine it with Wild Growth and let it shine ;)

Another suggestion is to have a bit of spell protection (at least in your sideboard). This deck it very vulnerable to burn and take out. Predator Ooze seems like a good card but you could consider Lightning Greaves for your hydra's or go all the way and add Asceticism .

Nikoguy - I appreciate the feedback. I am keeping this deck in the standard format or I would definitely have Llanowar Elves and Wild Growth included. I have considered replacing the pilgrims and/or Dawntreader Elk with Scorned Villager  Flip .

Nikoguy I forgot to respond to your suggestion about burn protection. My goal was to ramp into big things fast and overwhelm my opponent. I am not worried as much with burn since the Deadbridge Goliath is out of the range of most cheap burn. Removal is an issue. I may sideboard in a few copies of card:Ranger's Guile.

He he, I still need to wrap my head around "standart" and all that stuff. I only play casual, sorry about that. I definately think card:Ranger's Guile would pay out in a sideboard.
