No problem. I appreciated how the Jeleva list was a solid deck on a solid budget, and how personalize-able it was. If I hadn't already committed to Nekusar a long time ago, I'd have to repurpose my Grixis EDH deck.

Have you solved Zada yet? Let me know if you need a second opinion on anything! and best of luck!

PlasticStranger,
You're JackZesty? Very cool. Thanks, mate!

GL (and good skill) with the deck! My biggest tip for people new to the deck: Mul' aggressively for mana accelerants and a turn 2 play. I seriously have zero trouble mul'ing to 5 looking for Sprawl, Elf, Birds (in that order) and a three-drop for Turn 2. Or both Elf and Sprawl, and a four-drop for Turn 2. I'll normally keep on 5 if it's even remotely playable, though I've won plenty of games on mul-to-4.

Only exception is vs. a Black deck with lots of Hand Disruption. I'd rather keep a meh 7 and lose two cards than a great 5 and lose two :-)

One other thing that's obvious but easy to forget: Stomping Ground is a Forest, so you can fetch it with Acid Moss and untap it with Elf.

Thanks again!

Not a problem, and thanks for the link to the list. 10/10, would have all my lands blown up on MTGO again (was on Burn yesterday). Proxying yours up tomorrow to mess with my testing group. Keep up the good (and miserable) fight!

NP! Had a real fun time losing to a similar ponza list with my Valakut deck!

No worries.

I don't withhold my upvotes due to

You will notice that there is some Green on my t shirt in that latest pic I sent you. The stuff is inescapable.

I always like to help my friends get their decks to number 1, even if they must overtake a beautiful deck in order to do it.

Hope you get there soon.

Hey! No problem, that deck earned it! Im sure you pilot it nicely. I hate it, but love how annoying it can be. It seems land destruction is the new mill!

You're so welcome! It is a sweet deck. Gotta love some land destruction >:)

Someone wrote a song for Amonkhet Minotaurs, and then I did a thing on its deck page.

mr_lag,
I'm guessing Mon 7 Aug. Here's the thought process.

CChaos,
Thanks much; great catch!

All,
Here's an imgur album of the rotating art.

Dragon and Cat for sure. I'm wondering if the other two are hybrids. Vampire/Knight and Human/Soldier, maybe?

CaptSillva,
I'm sure it's a fine card in many decks, but it's actually pretty horrible in Ponza. The deck's built to have 3 or 4 Mana on Turn 2 (there's a 60% chance of 3 and 16% chance of 4 ... and it's even better if you consider mulligans), so there's really no point in the game where you'd want Boom over the better 3- and 4-drop Land Destruction options. And the deck never wants Bust.

Thanks though!

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor,
No, I haven't. I've took a little bit of time to play some Modern, but I frankly haven't found time to brew or play Standard at all recently :-(

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, AndrewAckerman, and TMBRLZ,
I agree that Ramunap Hydra is pretty bad, but check out Frank Karsten's article over at ChannelFireball. It's really more accurate to say we're a at a point where a 3/3 for 4 with 3 keywords that needs 14-18 Deserts to be a 5/5 isn't very good. In that context, it's maybe not so disturbing :-)

Ender666666,
Came for the title, stayed for the deck. Big +1 from me!

Purphoros, God of the Forge, maybe?

And along those lines: Though I know your 6-drop slot is already very crowded (esp with Locust God there). But maybe a Warstorm Surge?

Draw well!

I'm not sure what you meant here ... typo or that my post needed more content? :-D, either way!

Airakk,
Idk about anything else. But I know how to search on TCGplayer. And Urza's Mine starts at $0.43, Urza's Power Plant starts at $0.79, and Urza's Tower starts at $0.79.

Of course, you're welcome to pay tons of money for Tron lands. Knock yourself out. But that doesn't make legomanalec a liar.

Whoa. Latest Magic Story features Samut and Djeru and Gideon vs. Neheb.

djnewellmit,
Arlinn  Flip is bae and I run her whenever I possibly can. But starting at only 3 Loyalty makes it REALLY tough to keep her alive in most metas.

Quint50,
Chezington13 and Opmomoko have ... both went 5-0 on MTGO recently, with 1x Samut, the Tested in the main.

AndrewAckerman,
I agree with you on testing Deserts ... that's why I already have a bunch in the maybeboard and described in the 'Strategy and card choices' section (including Scavenger Grounds). But I'll add Ifnir Deadlands to the list for sure. Thanks!
