Standard Fare - Mono Green Eldrazi Ramp [Edward Eng] October 11, 2015 00:00
I've been struggling to build a decent Mono Green Eldrazi Ramp. But to be fair, I haven't really tested anything out yet. So maybe something like the following might actually be noteworthy in today's new Standard.
Let's take a look at what I've got so far.

Yes, it sucks that there's no Elvish Mystic. But hey, we've gotta work with what's available. And there are a lot of 2, 3, and 4-drop mana ramp options, which is why I'm not quite sure if this is the correct build yet. And it's also possible that Mage-Ring Network is better than Rogue's Passage.
Off the top of my head, I think the deck might have some challenges against super fast aggro decks and decks that can grind you out like GW with Evolutionary Leap, Mastery of the Unseen, and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar.
I really think Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is super powerful and Sanctum of Ugin provides quite a bit of extra gas to help you keep momentum going in case your big stuff gets countered or killed. If you're interested, please try the deck out and hit me up with feedback. I'd love to hear about what you've found out.
Peace, love, and have fun…
