Cryptolith Rite

Kruphix, God of Horizons would let you bank mana from turn to turn.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury makes mana dorks.

Things to pump up. Altered Ego, Killer Bees, Gigantoplasm

I'd argue that I have enough ramp with Cultivate, Cryptolith Rite and Harvest Season, as well as Cream of the Crop for card filtering and a ton of card draw effects. But I will take those land recommendations. The only reason I had so many basics was I just couldn't think of what utility lands I could use to replace them.

Hey again. Nice I hope it goes well! So this is how I would try to describe it in simple terms:

First Yannik comes in and exiles a dude. Yannik#2 (e.g. a creature with a similar effect) drops by to exile Yannik, returning the dude. Then Yannik#3 comes in and exiles Yannik#2, returning Yannik, who in turn exiles Yannik#3, returning Yannik#2, who exiles Yannik, returning Yannik#3, and so on until you choose to stop (say by exiling the dude).

The deck runs pretty smooth. It could definitely use some mana engines, say Concordant Crossroads + Cryptolith Rite so that the loopers can generate mana. I don’t have a crossroads though and your build is all creatures right? I mention this need for mana because there are times where i can draw the whole deck but have to wait till next turn to try to win because I couldn’t cast crystalline crawler. And drawing your whole deck puts a big target on you haha. Good luck!

Alright, it's rhino time.

There are quite a few things I would recommend here.

First off, fourteen taplands!? Come on. Ghired deserves better than that! I'd either run more basics for the sake of your ramp or upgrade the nonbasics.

Part One - Things that cost too much to cast and/or don't do much:

  1. Helm of the Host is cute, but nine mana. Perhaps just a Nature's Lore?

  2. Ghired's Belligerence, however befitting, is quite possibly just worse than Ezuri's Predation.

  3. Hate Mirage follows suit. March of the Multitudes is lovely, though.

  4. Each deck needs graveyard hate! You cut that inutile Full Flowering and you add that Night Soil! (Imagine a joyous voice.)

Part Two - Just for any deck:

  1. So. Removal. Something beyond four would be nice. More instant speed as well. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Aura Mutation, Artifact Mutation, and Generous Gift are all bromidic and potent.

  2. Can your deck generate green and red mana? Then play Decimate. Do it. It has literally never felt dead. It murders four things at the cost of one card. It is a bloody wrath. Furthermore, if you take from everybody you are less likely to be targeted. I once hit a Dimir Aqueduct, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Arena, and Elesh Norn. Fifteen mana gone in an instant.

  3. Peering upon the curve, add more ramp. Nature's Lore, Into the North (add snow basics), Cryptolith Rite, Three Visits, Druids' Repository, Nature's Will, and any mana dork.

  4. Intrinsically, Darksteel Ingot should just be Cultivate. It is currently cheap and it replaces itself.

  5. Once Upon a Time is a card I run in any green deck. It's great all the time.

  6. Hero of Bladehold has come to murder everyone. She does her job.

  7. Purphoros has come to murder everyone. He always does his job.

  8. Given how few basics you run, Field of the Dead is a splendid inclusion. It's far better than it reads, and it reads of dint.

That's it! Farewell! CRUSH EVERYONE!

I have my own token deck here if you care to see it.

Massacar hey! The price tag isn’t to scary as the whole deck exploded in price compared to the pre-con as you can see lol

I still have some games I get mana screwed but I’m going okay most of the times, I lowered my average cmc a lot to help combat that problem. My fears for Cryptolith Rite and Earthcraft on average I’ll be losing 4dmg to tap a rhino, lose a rhino if I tap ghired and my new rhinos come into play tapped. So I havnt gone that direction.

Personally I like Dryad of the Ilysian Grove more here than Azusa. I would also like to echo back an earlier suggestion of Cryptolith Rite, just to further allow some ramp and mana fixing with your tokens. Other possibilities if you aren't too worried about the price tag would be Earthcraft.

Do you feel like you always have the mana you need to play this deck?
