Guilds of Ravnica Brews, pt. 3 – Temur Ramp

Here’s a deck by Todd Anderson, which does it’s best to kill the opponent with [card]Fight with Fire[/card] copied with [card]Primal Wellspring[/card]. So, what if we go deeper and add some green ramp.

We have two potential ramp cards available to us [card]Grow from the Ashes[/card] and somethings that’s currently called [card]Detour[/card] on MythicSpoiler (it’s known as “This garden is 90% full of snakes!” on Scryfall), which is a strictly better [card]Explosive Vegetation[/card] as it can find Gates as well.

How about this play pattern: [card]Electromancer[/card] into [card]Detour[/card] into [card]Primal Amulet[/card] and… something. Or better yet: [card]Elfhame Druid[/card] into [card]Detour[/card] into [card]Primal Amulet[/card] and [card]Grow from the Ashes[/card] kicked. I have a slight headache right now, so I’m not even sure how much mana you’d have available on turn five.

We do have a bit of a problem here in that neither Gruul or Simic is in the set, so it’s possible that this will be a more functional deck after the next set.
