Crop Rotation

Instant

As an additional cost to play Crop Rotation, sacrifice a land.

Search your library for a land card and put that card onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

EsperControl4Life, because I didn't even think of it haha; I always imagined Crop Rotation being a turn one play to correct your early-game mana-base and never as a turn-two alternative to Harrow , great suggestion!

Axorian Thanks for the comment! Sorry that my list doesn't work online, I created it intending to take it to my local game store for events and casual games. I'm currently brewing a variant that includes blue, since it fixes issues like running out of cards in hand and outplaying tempo. That build likely won't include Red Elemental Blast , so that might be more to your tastes.

The main reason why I don't run Journey to Nowhere is because it doesn't usually deal with what this deck struggles against. It's typically a pretty safe bet that whatever creature this deck has in play will win in combat against any blocker the help of one or two combat tricks, and since combat tricks and creatures are also our win condition, I prioritized them over disrupting our opponent (who is likely playing on the defensive). I'm currently brewing a variant that includes blue, since it fixes issues like running out of cards in hand and outplaying tempo. That build likely won't include Red Elemental Blast , so that might be more to your tastes.

As for the purpose for the cards in the sideboard:

Bojuka Bog : With Crop Rotation this one card screws with graveyard decks a lot.

Flaring Pain : A way to bypass fog effects, which often beat this deck.

Mountain : Fixes our mana base to fit better with our red sideboard cards.

Oblivion Ring : Usually isn't used, but helps deal with unwelcome surprises if we're desperate.

Pyroblast / Red Elemental Blast : Blue spells disaster for this deck. Not even considering counterspells, even tempo cards like Unsummon can devastate us. This also kills Delver of Secrets  Flip, which is a nice bonus.

Vitality Charm : Helps the deck bypass large groups of small creatures with trample. Against suffocating control decks, it can also be a creature to pick up Adventuring Gear and be a backup win condition.

MountainMan817 Valid point on the harrow very valid point, in that case is the ramp from harrow better than playing Crop Rotation or Fork in the Road in your experience?

EPICSpider23, honestly the game is over with before Nissa would ult. I've thought about Expedition Map , Crop Rotation or Sylvan Scrying .. I might swap the 3 drop ramp for those 3 now that you mention it. That way I can grab good lands more often. Thanks for the suggestion!

Fallerup: Iona pretty much shuts me out of the game if it resolves.

Once the color is chosen, it's too late for me to respond by casting spells of that color. Iona is not yet in the battlefield at the time the color is chosen, so I can't cast Beast Within to destroy it if the chosen color is Green, for example.

Kamerot: Same thing goes for Mouth of Ronom , since it needs Noxious Revival and Crop Rotation to be looped and the damage can only done when it's on the field.

However, I don't encounter Iona too often, but when I do and I know she's a threat I usually try and storm off while she's on the stack, or play around her using Yisan, the Wanderer Bard . The Yisan route needs to have Mouth of Ronom pop op at some point though, so it can be used in tandem with Somberwald Stag . Iona is an all around terrible card in competitive formats and unless the deck's absolute strategy is to get Iona out to call green, then they'll probably almost always lose if that's the primary function of the game. Scour from Existence is overcosted and a terrible card, unfortunately.

Hey my friend, such a cool deck. I know most of this is far from budget but some good tools you could use are : Yavimaya Hollow , Cavern of Souls , Primeval Titan , Survival of the Fittest , Vines of Vastwood , Sylvan Scrying , Crop Rotation , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , Berserk and indeed Birthing Pod or Mutagenic Growth that I see in your maybeboard. This will help you being way more consistant/fast :)
