List of EDH Ramp Cards

Commander / EDH*

Epochalyptik Score: 11


This is a list of important EDH ramp cards.

Ramp allows a deck access to more mana earlier in the game. Although most ramp effects are in green, there is a considerable amount of artifact-based ramp.

Couldn't Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx be good ramp?

I added it because it does ramp in monocolored decks, and it can tap for mana even without the devotion ability. It's very limited, though, so it only sees play in a small demographic of decks.

Also, Druidic Satchel does some serious work (in budget decks, at least).

I feel Lotus Cobra counts as a somewhat decent ramp card Epochalyptik, not too good though.

You should add the card Tithe . I use it in all my white decks that don't have green to ramp. It's a great card if you run dual lands and shock lands.

For instants, you should add Crop Rotation and Realms Uncharted

Enchantments, you should add Manabond

Land, you should add Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins

I really like Thawing Glaciers , although it isn't ramp in a strict sense it ensures land drops.

@GoldGhost012: Xenagos, The Reveler doesn't really ramp very well in EDH.

@Xtkxl4rd4ss: Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins are too risky. You get blown out by LD, and land-based LD (e.g. Strip Mine ) is very prevalent.

Manabond is very situational, and it's rarely relevant.

Crop Rotation isn't ramp. I'll add it to the list of tutors, though. Same with Realms Uncharted .

I want to suggest Coldsteel Heart , Star Compass , and the talismans for this list.

Also, I want to make an argument for the inclusion of the shard obelisks because Manalith is in here. In three-color and five-color EDH decks, if a player who only plays blue steals a Manalith from a jund player, the player can tap it for blue, but if it were a Obelisk of Jund instead, the blue player could only tap it for colorless. So I say if Manalith gets a spot, so should the obelisks. The one place they wouldn't be as good is in a five-color deck, but those are "relatively" rare in commander.

Sylvan Primordial is now banned

Fatestitcher At worst its one extra mana in colour that doesn't get much ramp, at best it combos with with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Gilded Lotus for some spectacular ramp, even going infinite with something like Pemmin's Aura

how about Fertilid

Crucible of Worlds ?

Rites of Flourishing , it also group hug so it might not make it

Couldn't the set of Keyrunes be on this list? Azorius Keyrune as an example.

How does Xenagos, The Reveler not ramp well in EDH? I see him ramped for tons all the time, especially in token decks and other creature heavy.

I think Expedition Map is a good idea. I like using it with Sun Titan .

Oh, and you forgot Pilgrim's Eye , which you listed in List of Budget EDH Staples and Power Cards.

June 17, 2014 6:34 a.m.

Marlon says... #26

What about Kiora's Follower ? Great for untapping Temple of the False God , Sol Ring , Mana Vault , etc.

Emrakool says... #27

Don't think I saw anyone mention the Mirrodin Talisman cycle. Sure those might be worth adding.

I did. And yes they're amazing.
