Beanstalk Giant

Creature — Giant

Beanstalk Giant's power and toughness are each equal to the number of lands you control.


(You may cast Beanstalk Giant from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)


Fertile Footsteps

Sorcery — Adventure

Search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.


(You may cast Fertile Footsteps for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Fertile Footsteps, this card is treated only as Beanstalk Giant in whatever zone it is in.)

(Example scenarios for Fertile Footsteps| You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=3. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, you may cast their Beanstalk Giant from exile. You can cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Beanstalk Giant's cost.)

Heartless Hidetsugu seems like a good way to pressure life totals for your x spells (especially because they are difficult to pull of in a 4 player pod)

Beanstalk Giant some nice ramp early game and a great beater for the late game

I have an Omnath, Locus of the Storm deck that seeks to storm off by playing mana doublers and then play cards that become mana positive by that. With Nyxbloom Ancient in play, Skyshroud Claim becomes a ritual. This card could become one too, if you'd add another thing like Zendikar Resurgent. In that deck, I would play Untamed Wilds over Cultivate, probably. But I already play Beanstalk Giant there, and Search for Tomorrow, which are strict upgrades over Untamed Wilds in most green decks.

Beanstalk Giant does the very same thing, yet it brings a big creature to the table as well. I'd always play that over Untamed Wilds

Atarka can make a pretty mean combat damage deck. It's not the best at interaction, but player removal counts as removal, too. I notice you're not running much green interaction, so I would suggest adding Nature's Claim and Return to Nature. They're nice and cheap.

Some upgrades could be Untamed Wilds and Spoils of Victory for Kodama's Reach and Cultivate. There's also Skyshroud Claim and Beanstalk Giant. Having lands that can ramp is really nice too, so I'd consider swapping some basics for Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland.

Bower Passage gives basically all your dragons unblockable (it's some really nice tech for dragon decks). This ca

Savage Ventmaw is an excellent dragon in my opinion. Helps a lot with the mana. If you have a Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient or Old Gnawbone that would be better. But the uncommon is good on a budget. Any one of these goes very well with Aggravated Assault or Hellkite Charger.

Now for the expensive suggestions. Xenagos, God of Revels lets you one-shot people with your commander while also giving haste. I know you may not want to be one of THOSE people, but if you put Grafted Exoskeleton on your commander, it also lets you one-shot people. Balefire Dragon and Hellkite Tyrant are excellent for completely wiping out opponents. Steel Hellkite is a budget alternative to those. The Great Henge is powerful in this deck by giving you draw, extra power, mana, and being a low cost once you have a dragon out. Utvara Hellkite is an army in a can. Gets ridiculous fast.

Some cards I would consider cutting are definitely the burn spells. Magma Jet, Lightning Bolt, Volcanic Fallout, Dragon's Fire, Banefire, and Atarka's Command may be good in other formats, but they fall short in commander. They aren't very good interaction because you'll often not be able to deal with the biggest threats on the board. Better cards for interaction would probably be Ryusei, the Falling Star, Rolling Earthquake, and Scourge of Valkas.

Feed the Pack gives you a sac outlet, Master of the Feast can give ya a cheap early threat. Footbottom Feast can pull juicy tidbits from your graveyard, and Beanstalk Giant, Everflowing Chalice and Explosive Vegetation can help you ramp. Fresh Meat takes advantage of graveyard shenanigans. Hot Soup seems like a must include in this deck. Fruit of the First Tree will get you life and card draw. Just a few ideas for you, I’m a total sucker for theme decks, I love it! Just a shame Chef's Kiss isn’t in the color identity. Love the deck.

Thanks kenvan19! Appreciate the kind words! Yes it can escalate quickly when you ramp with Beanstalk Giant's adventure! You’re pretty much able to cast anything you have in your hand, with the added value of the doubling effect of Lucky Clover. Lots of fun!
