Rhonas's Monument

Rhonas's Monument

Legendary Artifact

Green creatures you cast cost less to cast.

Whenever you cast a creature spell, target creature you control gets +2/+2 and gains trample until end of turn. (It can deal excess combat damage to the player or planeswalker it's attacking.)

AstroAA on How do you build Karametra?

1 month ago

I used to run a Karametra, God of Harvests combo deck ages ago when Paradox Engine was legal. I updated it last summer, but it's still kind of mediocre and I would definitely redo it again if I had any interest in the deck. Regardless, if you're interested - my decklist is here:

I did not go with the landfall mechanic as I'm not particularly a fan of it outside of Lotus Cobra. IMO she's best built abusing ETB triggers with cards like Aluren and Cloudstone Curio.

Cards like Whitemane Lion, Kor Skyfisher, and Emancipation Angel are absolutely phenomenal in Karametra. They bounce themselves, allowing you to play them again and get more lands. With Aluren out, you can get every single Forest/Plains out of your deck in a single turn.

Cards like Wall of Blossoms and Wall of Omens are great with Aluren + Cloudstone Curio because you could essentially draw your entire deck in one go. Albeit you'd need to be careful and specify how far you should go with this otherwise you'd deck yourself, but that's beyond the point - still a powerful draw effect.

With Aluren, Cards like Sandsteppe Outcast and Hanged Executioner are awesome for getting an arbitrarily large number of tokens, as the token on the ETB effect can bounce the creature that generated it with Cloudstone Curio. This can pay out in several different ways - mainly infinite mana with Ashnod's Altar and/or Phyrexian Altar through sacing the token, and infinite damage/winning the game on the spot with Blasting Station and sacing the token. You could also create infinite tokens with Oketra's Monument and any of the self-bounce creatures if you just have Aluren out.

I also really liked cards like Reveillark, Renegade Rallier, Destiny Spinner, Eternal Witness, Aura Shards, Bygone Bishop, Temur Sabertooth, and Rhonas's Monument.

Personally, if you wanted to play a straight-up ETB combo deck, I think Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is a better general due to having far easier access to using Aetherflux Reservoir, (generate a ton of life with Aluren + Whitemane Lion, shoot people with the Death Star). Karametra, God of Harvests is nice for land filtering, but you only run so many lands in the deck she becomes kind of useless later on in the game - hence why I've kind of lost interest in her. In addition, what TypicalTimmy said is very true - if you rush out to an early lead in lands with her, you often become a target. IF you wanted to build Karametra, God of Harvests still, I would highly recommend going combo and including a myriad of methods to win - such as combat damage, Walking Ballista combos, and Blasting Station combos.

Immortalys on Reki, the History of Legends

I usually end up winning through sheer numbers, combined with some finisher like Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, God-Eternal Rhonas or Heroes' Podium.

Reki allows for a lot of continuous card draw, and this deck has a little subtheme of cost reduction with cards like Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Rhonas's Monument, The Immortal Sun, Emerald Medallion and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma on top of the regular green ramp (aided by creatures like Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro who can both have Reki (who should always be on board) and themselves tap for mana and other Legendary cards like Nyx Lotus and Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest), which keeps the engine going even more.

I personally prefer to use Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as a finisher, but as you might imagine, the people you play him against aren't always happy to see him. Another type of "creature" finisher I like is Kamahl's Druidic Vow. With all the mana you're making with this deck it can quite easily be cast for X = 30+. But in general this deck doesn't have creature finishers (Vorinclex and God-Eternal Rhonas being the exceptions) as instead it tries to create a critical mass of big and tough creatures to hit the opponents hard with, preferably with the aid of some of the cards mentioned above. If you are looking for creature finishers though I would recommend running some of the Eldrazi Titans

Deck looks nice. A few cards to consider would be Rhonas's Monument it will cheapen creatures and give trample which can be important for pushing damage. I know it's bit expensive but Hydroid Krasis does work on many levels and fits your deck great. I also recommend Beast Within to deal with any permanents like enchantments, lands and artifacts. Karn's Bastion would be a nice land for the deck as well. Other than that the deck looks sweet.

Welcome to the club!

My first thought here is mana. You have only 20 lands, four of which enter tapped, plus 4 Llanowar Elves and a Rhonas's Monument and Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter, and a pretty heavy curve to support. This is going to make for a slow development. If you want to build around Champion of Lambholt, I recommend dropping some of the higher-end cards and replacing them with more low-end creatures and ramp. Elvish Mystic is essentially another few copies of LlElves. Experiment One is a one-man card that likes getting +1/+1 counters. Adding in a few more Forests wouldn't hurt, either.

How competitive do you want this to be, and how much money are you willing to spend?

Other considerations: Minion Reflector and Helm of the Host gives hasty copies (albeit without cast triggers)

Phyrexian Splicer to switch abilities between creatures

Rhonas's Monument to give things trample.

I'm also surprised that your favourite Akroma's Memorial isn't in there!

Hey, nice version. Fallen Ideal is spicy tech to give Lathril evasion and pump.

On a budget some cards I've been impressed with.

  • Birchlore Rangers : able to tap pairs of Elf tokens the turn they're created to make mana and being able to make green or black is helpful. Tapping out and still being able to pay for Ezuri's regenerate and/or Miara's draw or an instant speed spell is nice.
  • Chord of Calling : powerful creature tutor with Elf tokens. Instant speed get Archdruid or Magistrate, etc. and then be able to use their tap ability on your next turn. Get Ezuri in response to removal. Chord can get any creature, get Toski or Frostfang.
  • Pyre of Heroes : tribal Pod repeatable Elf tutor.
  • Rhonas's Monument : repeatable way to give Lathril pump and trample as well as reduce the casting cost of many Elves.
