Nobody Expects Mono Green Combo Burn

Commander / EDH* Burn Casual Combo Mono-Green Ramp

EternalBrewmaster


Description

The biggest problem with Omnath, and the biggest flaw in his design, is that he doesn't have three devotion to green. He is the greenest of green cards and generals of all time and it's not like devotion was a thing in Worldwake so 3 devotion wouldn't have mattered in that sense. He is not meant to be splashed in any other color and just wouldn't make sense in most decks. Anyways, rant over.

The main idea of this deck is to get Elderscale Wurm out and cast Squall Line for all of the mana, preferably when somebody else is about to win so you can snatch victory at the last minute.

Dumped the superior Nissa's Pilgrimage for Cultivate because the promo art on Cultivate is one of my favorites ever and the NP art makes me want to vomit. Also, the spell mastery has rarely been relevant and never important enough to justify not playing the beautiful Cultivate.

I would immediately change Oran-Rief, the Vastwood to Terrain Generator. And is there a reason you don't just have Squirrel Nest, Green Sun's Zenith or Genesis Wave

May 21, 2017 7:36 p.m.

Lol why? That's a ridiculous change. And the reason for none of the other three is I don't like playing easy mode. They're boring cards that serve no purpose in this deck. This isn't every other monogreen deck, it's a burn deck.

Why don't you add a Hurricane? Same spell, just sorcery speed

Looks like you answered your own question! Nice job! Also, since my way of winning basically requires that I have all the mana and all the cards, I should only need one way of doing this. It's more my style to wait to actually win with the Squall Line in response to someone else's game-winning play or attack. Stealing the win is significantly more satisfying than just casting a big X spell.

Cool deck! But Cultivate is not a judge promo, it was a FNM promo.
And since you're playing Tooth and Nail, maybe you would be interested in Defense of the Heart judge promo.

Also linking Nissa's Pilgrimage for reference.

WTAF?!?!? When did that judge promo DotH come out???? That's amazing! I def don't want it for this deck, but for my enchantress deck Enchantress Oops! All Permanents for sure. Thanks for catching that error on the promo type; of course it's not a judge promo lol, that was a typo from a long time ago.

Did you ever consider Rocket Launcher as a burn spell?

May 27, 2017 11:58 p.m.

No I haven't as it's an artifact and the idea is to not use artifacts and to achieve the win at instant speed as a surprise. Rocket launcher, being a permanent, advertises what I'm doing, and being a non-foil artifact, doesn't work in any way. Also, this deck just doesn't need more than one burn spell as it can draw a ridiculous number of cards.

is Rishkar's Expertise getting too good stuff to include in your decks?

Rampaging Baloths could combo with Perilous Forays and Stone-Seeder Hierophant to get all your basics

August 14, 2017 6:31 p.m.

The expertise is just strictly better than Soul's Majesty in a couple ways but if I always replace cards in all my decks with the new copies then a lot of old cards, some of which are nostalgic for me, will never get played anymore.

I'm aware of the combo with baloths and stone-seeder but for some reason I've never liked baloths so I don't run it in any decks. Thanks for the suggestion though, it is a good one.
