Modern Budget Combo Mono-Green Ramp




A new budget standard deck I brewed after finding out about a really awesome new standard interaction today. Here's how it goes:

You cast See the Unwritten, put a Greenwarden of Murasa onto the battlefield, then put all of the other cards you peeked at into your graveyard. BUT, Greenwarden's ETB trigger triggers AFTER See the Unwritten resolves, meaning that at that point, See would be in your graveyard. You can then return See the Unwritten to your hand.

If you have enough mana, or next turn, you can cast it again, and now that you have Ferocious enabled, you can drop two fatties, preferably one of the annoying fatties in this deck and another Greenwarden so you can do the combo again. Two Bane of Bala Geds for the "new" annihilator shenanigans, Plated Crusher s for an incredibly difficult-to-remove threat, etc. Really, you can put any big fatty you want in those spots, I have those two there as my budget preference (plus I have a couple foils of them, hehehe...)

There is also plenty of cheap ramp here so you can hardcast your fatties if need be. Surrak for hasty big green things.

I know I could easily put Den Protector and Deathmist Raptor in, as well as use Shaman of Forgotten Ways, but they are not here for budget reasons. If you have them, by all means, use them. I've provided a maybeboard full of potential alternatives for some of the cards in the deck in this case. I'll accept any suggestions to add to it.

I like the look of the deck. I rarely play green but I want a change of pace from my tiny aggro playing style and go for the big stompy things. My personal inclusions might be Outland Colossus, Beastcaller Savant and some Explosive Vegetation.

IF you have the money, it seems like this deck could use some eldrazi titans like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Desolation Twin and Void Winnower. The more fatties the better!

CeraAngel Yes, yes, and yes! The only thing I lack is money :p. I get the feeling that Umalog will be sub $10 soon, so it might be worthwhile to pick him up :3. I chose the fatties I did for budget and evasion reasons.
