Beanstalk Giant

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.)

Beanstalk Giant Discussion

Mechanon on Yedora - My forests can kill

5 days ago

Definitely an interesting deck. I feel like you have too much mana ramp and then you will be left with top decking. I would suggest some cards like Beanstalk Giant , Return of the Wildspeaker , Sylvan Awakening . There's lots of other good cards with landfall triggers and creatures that can turn lands into beefy land creatures. Maybe even cut out a few lands, you're going to have tons of forests anyways once you get your commander out.

Sorin_Markov_1947 on Vorinclex Ramp

Solid list! I think there are better things to ramp into as backups to Vorinclex than Burning-Rune Demon and Demon of Loathing though. Beanstalk Giant is some minor ramp with a payoff later if needed, and Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is another possibility.

If you want Planeswalkers, Garruk, Cursed Huntsman is another possibility that's just good in a vacuum as well.

I like the ramp package, but I think Cultivate is better than Ilysian Caryatid . It can't be killed and the one mana extra won't do too much considering you're ramping to 5 or 6, not 4. You also already have Dream Devourer in the two-drop slot, though on turn 3 you may be foretelling with it instead of Cultivating. Depends on the situation.

There's no way Binding the Old Gods doesn't belong in this deck. It's one of the best removal spells in Standard, then ramps you, then makes your non-threats deathtouch. I think it can replace Bloodchief's Thirst .

If you wanted to make it Sultai and focus less on Vorinclex, you could add koma the world serpent as the best non-Ugin thing to ramp to in Standard. You could also go for the Ultimatum, and at that point you're just Sultai Ultimatum.

For the manabase, I think you could add some Triomes to help protect against flooding in the late game.

Sorin_Markov_1947 on Giant Trouble in Little Standard

Invasion of the Giants is an immediate four-of. That card does anything you want it to. Battle of Frost and Fire if you're playing against a lot of creature decks should be a four-of, but I think three is fine. You probably don't want Embercleave, as giants go big and not wide.

I think you have enough three-drops that Beanstalk Giant is pretty low on the priority list. I think you could easily cut it and help your manabase as well. Speaking of manabase, add in a land or two. Giants goes big! Shatterskull Smashing  Flip is a decent option for how much mana you want.

Cyclone Summoner is a good top-end, maybe even sooner with Invasion of the Giants. It's basically a Cyclonic Rift in Standard. Thryx, the Sudden Storm is another possibility as a flash blocker that makes Cyclone Summoner cheaper, but that's up to you. It's a meh. Now what I consider is not a meh is Shatterskull Charger . Very underrated card. It's a giant, you get the option of making it immune to wipes/sorcery removal and just get in a few extra damage, or making it a solid haste giant. Basalt Ravager and/or Shatterskull Smashing  Flip is an alternative to Squash , though Basalt Ravager has kind of let me down. A 4/2 is just so easy to kill.

If you need more to cut after Embercleave and Beanstalk Giant, cut Crystalline Giant. With Shatterskull Charger, you've still got that three-slot (kind of) and Crystalline is just kind of meh as well. It's random if it becomes good and is mainly just a 3/3 for 3.

A friend of mine made a build of Izzet Giants with these changes and some more and had good success in the play queue. If you play it a good bit, it might even get you up to plat. Here's his video showing how well it does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JF1aHemcL8

Like the direction you're going with the green deck and I think you're on the money with your initial creature collection, especially Beanstalk Giant , great to see him getting some love! Excited to see how your changes work out!

Simerix on Big Butt Big Mana

3 months ago

Cards to remove: Altered Ego, Horizon Chimera, Vastwood Hydra, Elixir of Immortality, Otherworld Atlas, Fog, Haze of Pollen, Respite, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, Prosperity, Wildest Dreams, Thryx, the Sudden Storm

Meh cards: Folio of Fancies, Beanstalk Giant, Hydra Broodmaster

Be carful with cards like Prosperity because you give your opponents a lot of cards. You pay a lot of mana for them to draw a lot of cards.

Your lands suck. I can help you find better lands to use if you would like. You will be fine if you don't change them, but better lands go a long way.

Thryx, the Sudden Storm is a decent card, but look at your mana curve. You don't have many cards over 5 cmc. In other words, he doesn't reduce the cost of many spells.

Cards like Fog don't work well in commander. When life totals are so high, you don't care about one individual combat, but gaining large long term value. This is a single use card. It will also likely sit in your hand as a dead card most of the game. Compare Fog to a card like Propaganda
