I got back into MtG at midpoint between Innistrad and Return to Ravnica after a really long break. The last set I played before that was Urza's Legacy. I played Prime Speaker Bant throughout the Inn/RtR cycle and have settled on RUG MidRange for the current cycle, probably switching to G/U Devotion or Mono Green after rotation.
I play EDH but do to a recent selling of most of my collection am in the process of building a deck for play. The current list in under construction and and he is appreciated. It's going to be a creature less Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge build.
I love to trade so please check out my binder and feel free to make any offers. Thanks!

Sounds good, when I'm able to ship I come back to you with a proposal- remind me though, it's very possible that I'll forget.
I'll either want Cascade Bluffs or some shocks and stuff for it. If you desperately need it, I'd keep looking but let me know if you still need it in a week (when I can actually ship).
That works for me! Go ahead and email me at email@example.com and we can finalize all the details.
already put 2nd copies of both in the mail yesterday. you should receive it sometime this week. sorry about that, been having these issues with mail lately no idea why
Made you an offer in your trade binder. Take a look please!
you should have received yours by now. i have not checked the mail in a few days, so yours might be there. If you don't receive by Monday, let me now and i will ship out 2nd copies
At my LGS, a lot of us make competitive decks and throw in a strange, off the wall choice for a 1 of in the deck just to see how it fairs. It's mostly just for fun, but sometimes the way it changes the game is interesting. One of my favorite has to be my inclusion of a single Chromanticore in my RUG mid build. It was fun to play it using Sylvan Caryatid and watch my opponent say...."huh"?
What silly one of's have you experimented with?
That's probably a good place to start. Foil the cheap stuff and if you decide you like it keep going. I know a guy that foiled out his Edric EDH and it drove him absolutely insane that he couldn't have foil copies of things like Tropical Island and he ended up regretting bc it never felt complete
Flamespeaker provides insane card advantage. That's the idea there. As for Warhound...2/2 for 2 cmc isn't amazing. Maybe it's a budget friendly place holder? Take note of other cards...pumping the Flamespeaker makes him more likely to damage an opponent allowing you to get the card advantage
If you are ramping there is a good chance you dorks are not what will be attacking until you explode a Nykthos on them with Nylea's buff ability. When you are attacking with 5, 6, and 7 power creatures I hardly see a 2/1 as a viable threat later in the game. Early in the game you just want to turn it sideways to make way for early big bodies so I don't think we will be seeing many of these guys declared as attackers. I still like the idea of the T3 6 6 drop but I just don't know what will be viable post rotation yet. I'm sure we will have something in that slot though seeing as RUG is a midrange clan. The problem here is that to make use of his shenanigan you really need to have 6 drops that are capable and worth being hard cast without it because there is the very real possibility that you will draw the 6 drops and not him.
My only concern on this guy vs Sylvan Caryatid is that he can be spot removed. He seems to be good for the T3 6 drop shenanigan, then becomes strictly less good than the Caryatid.
Now, T3 6 drop is amazing in standard, and with the given cards available when Khans rotates in it seems like it can be a consistent maneuver but it depends on what 6 drops you have in mind, and you will likely need to run a high number of them to make this happen at the consistency it would need to become a competitive play. What kind of 6 drops do you all think make the cut for this play? I'm not seeing much that I would like to run at a high enough frequency to make this happen that would still be worth it on their own. I'm hoping for better options from Khans or I will be sticking to my Caryatids
I think the shocklands will rotate with no opinion at all. They are fictitious places printed on cardboard.
On a serious note...they will only go up after the inferred initial dip. They are already out of print I think and they see play in eternal formats as staples.
