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.

Just resetting the discussion.

Feel free to suggest cards to add or remove.

I feel like Hedron Archive and Everflowing Chalice should be on this list.

Only one card I feel is missing... Braid of Fire, the ramp that ramps itself.

braid of fire is only good if you have activated abilities out that can be used instant speed as it happens before your draw...

Thawing glaciers isn't ramp, while Blighted Woodland is.

Thawing Glaciers can ramp it's just that you have to be able to untap it with a Voyaging Satyr or something. It doesn't inherently ramp it just has the potential. So all in all probably not a good include for this list. I'm just nitpicking cuz I'm bored on the internet.

And Epochalyptik this is a great resource. I wonder why you didn't include Knight of the White Orchid or Kor Cartographer though? Some of the "weaker" options like these are quite good just because their colors don't have a lot to offer. Also wotc just printed Regal Behemoth which seems good enough to include on this list.

I was wondering if you wouldn't check out my new resource list:

List of EDH Graveyard Hate

Commander / EDH* NewHorizons


I might also remake some of your lists like for instance this one if you don't mind but perhaps more inclusive of things ratcheted down a peg or two in power level and including cost reducers & untappers as well.

NewHorizons What are you, stalking me? JK, you're absolutely right. I think thawing glaciers is an auto include in any non-green deck, honestly, and it can ramp, I was just suggesting a somewhat known land that does inherently ramp over one that doesn't without some work.

Moxen are banned in EDH, and I would not say Familiar's are really ramp, though that's up for debate.

I'm sorry if I missed a previous post on this creature card, but I think Somberwald Sage might fit on your list.

Don't forget Scrying Sheets if you're wiling to run snow lands. puts snow cards into hand. is more hit or miss though.

The banner cycle? E.g. Mardu Banner

Yavimaya Elder is technically not ramp.

July 19, 2017 5:46 p.m.

DarkMagician says... #24

Why do you include the Obelisks but not Commander's Sphere, it's strictly better in EDH. Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice should both be on here as well especially with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice being a Commander.

Winterblast says... #25

Lotus Petal, Mox Opal and Chrome Mox are missing...and what I'm missing as well are all the important 1 drop mana elves, such as Arbor Elf, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid and for two mana Bloom Tender. Carpet of Flowers is also a great card, even produces mana in the 2nd main phase on the same turn it has been played!

This list is missing a lot but for starters Regal Behemoth

Since Epoch isn't able to keep the list up-to-date, I took the liberty to generate a new list which I plan to maintain as much as possible. You can find the up-to-date list of all EDH ramp cards here.

Your imput and comments to keep this new list up to date are very welcome!

D2Vincent says... #28

Any uses in Altar of Shadows? It's somewhat expensive, but it works for both mana, removal, and can be proliferated.

Hour of Promise is decent. I really like how it gets nonbasics like Tempt with Discovery

July 30, 2017 11:49 p.m.

Emerald Medallion

Jet Medallion

Pearl Medallion

Ruby Medallion

Sapphire Medallion
