Are you all about playing big monsters? Then this is the deck for you. The green ramp deck is one of those archetypes that has been around for as long as Magic has existed, and the deck still exists today. The plan is the same as with all ramp decks, develop your mana faster than the opponent and then cast expensive threats that are more powerful than your opponent’s cards.

In the early days of Magic it the deck used Llanowar Elves, Gaea's Touch, Birds of Paradise and Wild Growth for mana ramp and the threats consisted of classics like Force of Nature, Craw Wurm, Erhnam Djinn, Killer Bees, Ifh-Biff Efreet, and Triskelion. The card engine of choice for the deck is often Sylvan Library but some builds use the Relic Barrier and Howling Mine combo for card advantage.

As with all ramp decks the biggest problem with the deck is that you need to draw a good combination of threats and ramp, but if you do you can win against any deck.
