Bleh, thought I had a new idea, but mechanically it doesn't work. Onwards.

Well, since you're going infinite mana off of Food Chain + Misthollow Griffin, perhaps a creature with an X cost? Mistcutter Hydra, Primordial Hydra, or Vastwood Hydra? Or you could go with a one hit kill like Maga, Traitor to Mortals.

Maga would be my choice, although mistcutter is funny.

Any reason to use Silence over Orim's Chant? Are Leyline of Sanctity effects really prominent?

Isn't this where I'm supposed to tell you to take your budget concerns to the casual forum? I'm not used to deck critiques anymore. :P

What is Protean Hulk's role in this? Just to power out more creatures? I mean, you can't use Food Chain to trigger it.

Not going to lie, I saw $1,000 worth of Imperial Recruiter in the deck list and it makes me giggle to no end that you balk at $40.00 worth of Orim's Chants.

Oh, never knew those were so expensive. I never really tried to get anything from the Three Kingdoms set.

Well crap. I blinked on Hulk. Silly mistake.

Yeah, no reason not to use Chant over Silence. I even have a set of those. I kept thinking "What's the other one? Abeyance? Ah right." Completely forgot about Chant.

That's less fun, still, I think the purphoros plan could work.

EDIT: Stupid rectors and their stupid stupids.

I have built a food chain deck before that went misthollow and food chain. I was hoping for a new look at it, but tripped on the "when ~ goes to the graveyard."

Kinda bored with how the old one worked.

Don't give up on this idea, it's really good! I have some ideas, but posting from a phone sucks. I'll try and think up a decklist while I'm working... already have a few ideas.

Silence is actually commonly played over Orim's Chant in legacy combo decks (for example TES, which maindecks it), to get around Leyline of Sanctity-type effects (which is more relevant than being able to kick Chant). but chant would be better in this deck because no-one would play leyline against you

Yup, been tinkering with it for a while. So far, the mana ramp isn't helping much, I'm too low on card draw... so, this is closer, but still not consistent. I mean, if I can't get a Food Chain in the first 10 cards of the game or so... the deck just really stalls out and goes nowhere fast.


Creatures (35)
------------------------------------
4x Carven Caryatid
4x Citanul Woodreaders
4x Fathom Mage
2x Maga, Traitor to Mortals
3x Misthollow Griffin
4x Mulldrifter
3x Nantuko Cultivator
3x Sphinx of Lost Truths
4x Wall of Roots

Enchantments (4)
------------------------------------
4x Food Chain

Lands (21)
------------------------------------
21x Forest

That doesn't work badly, but you really need a Food Chain right away, otherwise you just roll over and die.

This is one of my early lists, which tried to have tools to get the food chain quickly with some sort of counter backup. The spoils for food chain was good for powering it out, but was dangerous because you could just roll over to life loss.

I've also thought of Intuition being used to power it all out, which reminds me of another deck I want to try with Intuition shell.

Enchantments
4 x Food Chain

Creatures
4 x Cloud of Faeries
3 x Misthollow Griffin
4 x Noble Hierarch
4 x Xantid Swarm

Spells
4 x Force of Will
3 x Daze
3 x Spell Pierce
4 x Brainstorm
4 x Spoils of the Vault
4 x Living Wish
1 x Intuition

Lands
4 x Tropical Island
2 x Underground Sea
2 x Bayou
4 x Verdant Catacomb
2 x Misty Rainforest
3 x Forest
1 x Swamp
2 x Island

SB
1 x Emrakul, The Aeons Torn
1 x Maga, Traitor to Mortals
1 x Mindbreak Trap
3 x Nature's Claim
1 x Karakas
2 x Brain Freeze
2 x Vendilion Clique
3 x Surgical Extraction
