Press J to jump to the feed. 7/14/2017: Ramunap Excavator doesn’t allow you to activate activated abilities (such as cycling) of land cards in your graveyard. Check. I'm not sure ramunap excavator will do much. My first thought was to turn to the Sylvan Plug deck for inspiration. What is the chance Ramunap Excavator starts to rise? HOU. BUY. With all the new MH1 cards spoiled and crucible of worlds on the rise. Modern has a different environment than EDH. The plan is a good one, although it is very slow. Did I mention that Crop Rotation tutors for both halves of the combo kill: Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage. There are Historic jank decks that like this effect, but they already run Crucible of Worlds for it. Pretty cool. SELL. With importance of replaying lands from graveyard in those decks, it's better for this effect to not be on creature, so Crucible is unlikely to be replaced. GoatBots (4x) GoatBots0 (4x) GoatBots1 (4x) GoatBots2 (4x ... Foil Hour of Devastation. SELL. The format seems to be either super fast decks or slow, inevitable decks. I went through the rares of "Hour of Devastation" trying to figure which ones might be worth crafting in the Arena once Amonkhet Remastered hits the historic format. Speculat(e/ing) Check. Being able to tutor for Crucible with Green Sun's Zenith seems pretty strong. Check. But while I was reading and researching ideas for the archetype, I came across a list by MatsOle, a player from Norway who streams on MTGO. Plus it plays Titania, Protector or Argoth, which is super cool. I understand what you’re saying if you are comparing it to OG Ravnica print runs sure, but in the current MTG world, no it was not. I was intrigued. Maybe new Zendikar will bring some interesting ways to create aggro angle for graveyard lands, but for everything else, Crucible resilience wins out. Good stuff. Often prison strategies can lock opponents out of mana, but then die to on-board threats. “Printed so excessively” uhhh HoD was a very low selling set which led to it being out of print before it left standard. Satyr Wayfinder, loam, excavator, swordtooth, that kinda stuff. Need to destroy Rest in Peace post-board? Would it be better to pick up regular foils or the event foils? Need Crucible? The deck colloquially known as "Sylvan Plug" (for reasons I won't go into) has been a fringe strategy in Legacy for some time now, utilising the power of Choke as essentially a Green Blood Moon in the Island dominated metagame. HOU. 1. form a theory or conjecture about a subject without firm evidence. You can still play only one land per turn, and only during your main phase when you have priority and the stack is empty. Check. Good for my Jund sac deck, but 3 mana 3/2 is not a great body, too expensive. I don’t play modern so I have no idea about that. Magic The Gathering, magic cards, singles, decks, card lists, deck ideas, wizard of the coast, all of the cards you need at great prices are available at Cardkingdom. If it never gets printed again, it'll eventually hit 10 dollars, but mtg is more likely to die than that happen. share. If Excavator is there, it might be tried in the same way people try to abuse Crucible now: replaying Ghost Quarter/Field of Ruin. It's a strong addition. Need to gain some life? Surprisingly, this deck tech is not about Sylvan Plug (although you should totally Google that deck if you're into playing off-the-wall stuff like I am) - it only starts there. Is it modern playable? There's some smattering of control too, but seems tier 2. You can even Ghost Quarter or Wasteland yourself for value and create a bunch of 5/3 beaters to win the game the following turn. Ramunap Excavator doesn’t change the times when you can play those land cards. It gets to play the best tutor in the format (Crop Rotation), the grindiest engine in the format (Life From the Loam), AND has a toolbox in Green Sun's Zenith. PRM. It was printed so excessively that it won't peak past $5. HoD wasn't well received and not heavily opened despite lottery cards. If I had to bet, I'd say no. Not good enough for modern outside niche scenarios. Wasteland - (G) (SF) (txt)Field of Ruins - (G) (SF) (txt)Ghostquarter - (G) (SF) (txt)[[cardname]] or [[cardname|SET]] to call. It has an insane amount of possible lines to victory, and is capable of locking opponents out with mana denial, beating down with huge Tireless Trackers and tokens from Titania, Protector of Argoth, and just making a 20/20 to end the game quickly. Ups, meant Amonkhet of course. MatsOle's list was like taking Lands and Sylvan Plug and putting them in a blender; a wonderful combination of the two strategies that incorporated both Ramanup Excavator and Azusa, Lost but Seeking. This is going to go up until its reprinted. Green Sun's Zenith provides a ton of flexibility. I doubt Wasteland will ever come to Historic unfortunately. There's a chance Excavator can go up but frankly I doubt it. The deck seeks to lock opponents out of the game with mana denial and prison cards, and then win the game with...well, whatever, really. The most obvious places to start are Green Sun's Zenith, Ancient Tomb, Mox Diamond, and Wasteland (and to a lesser extent, Ghost Quarter). Ramunap excavator. Bog is amazing vs Dredge and Reanimator, but also pulls its weight vs Lands and other decks with graveyard synergy. Abrupy Decay is a great answer to Rest in Peace, plus you want the Black mana for Deathrite Shaman activations regardless.

Need to draw some cards? Is it modern playable? hi lo. There's enough new cards coming from Amonkhet that I don't think anyone can say for sure. What really needs to happen I think is green sun's zenith unban so you can add dryad arbor to the mix :). I have been having an absolute blast playing this deck for the past couple days, and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys playing something a little different.
