Standard Eldrazi Ramp

Eldrazi Ramp PicI was playing at FNM, and a new player happened to be sitting next to me. He wasn’t playing in the tournament, but was interested in playing and looking at cards. I had decided that week to play my 4-color Demonic Pact deck (I do love bouncing Demonic Pacts,) rather than the Eldrazi Ramp brew I’d been toying with, so I handed the Eldrazi over to him and while I played my rounds, he sat next to me and basically playtested my Eldrazi list against whoever would play him.

I decided to write about the Eldrazi Ramp list because, it was pointed out to me, it’s basically a budget deck as it stands, with Ulamog and Atarka the only cards above $10. There are a lot of ways to build a ramp deck at the moment, here’s what I’ve put together out of my own collection.
