Zendikar's Roil


Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, put a 2/2 green Elemental creature token onto the battlefield.

Oh also Manabond could be cool here. If your general is in the grave, you can put his ability on the stack numerous times, returning all or most of your lands to hand. Then at the end step, Manabond lets you drop all those lands, triggering things like Oran-Rief Hydra , Zendikar's Roil , and Rampaging Baloths . It also discards your general in the process, allowing you to do this every turn. It's situational but could be a game winner.

Again, thanks RNR_Gaming for the comment. You guys are very helpful, and I’m very thankful. Oracle of Mul Daya and Exploration are too far out of the budget, I’ve gotten most of these cards over the past 2 months and I’ll probably wait to buy another high costing card. I think I can do better things for 6 mana and so I wouldn’t like to play Rampaging Baloths , and I have the same reasoning for Zendikar's Roil . I don’t know about Crop Rotation , due to the fact that I have been happy with Elvish Reclaimer ’s play. I’m definitely think about Burgeoning because it is well worth the tempo play and is pretty inexpensive for the power it packs, but I think I’ll wait to see if I need more mana acceleration.

On a side note, do any of the commenters believe Zoetic Cavern is a good investment due to the fact it can be played as a second land (somewhat)?

Oh how I love lands. If you're not on a budget consider these

1) Oracle of Mul Daya - additional land drops and sudo-card draw and it's an elf

2) Exploration - being able to play more lands a turn is where you want to be.

3) Burgeoning - probably 1 of the best turn 1 plays in a land centric deck and it's a good way to get ahead of the pack

If you are on a budget

1) Rampaging Baloths - you'll probably be able to make a couple 4/4s a turn with this bad boy and your commander

2) Crop Rotation - very good for finding tech lands or just fixing your mana

3) Zendikar's Roil - acts as a mini Rampaging Baloths

Yarok, the Desecrated fits well in a landfall deck as he doubles the triggers, he also triggers any other etb's you have and can generate. Zendikar's Roil might also be worth looking at, generating more elementals for playing lands, they are not big but extra feet on the ground.

I see your Risen Reef , but where's Zendikar's Roil ? Those two go together like peas and carrots! Dryad Arbor is amazing in just about any Yarok deck, yet I never see her used. With Deadeye Navigator and Lotus Cobra , you'll have yourself infinite landfall triggers (and infinite creature ETBs) -- that one card will add about 10 more win cons to your deck! Assuming you have Yarok out, that is...

Those are just my thoughts! Hope it helps!

I’m surprised you don’t have Zendikar's Roil in this deck. If you pair it with risen reef it has the potential to be unstoppable.

WUBRG87 thanks for those, I didnt even think about Diabolic Servitude and how it would work with Yarok. Thats awesome! Farhaven Elf is definitely going in. As far as Risen Reef and Zendikar's Roil , I am having a hard time figuring out what to pull to replace them with, what do you think?

Also, Risen Reef can go deep with Zendikar's Roil . Its a decent combo. Especially with Yarok out.
