Remade the ramp deck into a control deck due to the mediocre aggro matchup.

Naya Control:
4 x Chandra, Torch of Defiance
8 x Mountain
4 x Rekindling Phoenix
2 x Carnage Tyrant
4 x Forest
2 x Samut, Voice of Dissent
1 x Ajani Unyielding
7 x Plains
2 x Glorybringer
4 x Ixalan's Binding
4 x Cast Out
1 x Inspiring Vantage
2 x Rootbound Crag
4 x Aether Hub
1 x Lyra Dawnbringer
4 x Seal Away
3 x Abrade
2 x Fumigate


Importable:
Spoiler


I think I need at least 1 more Lyra, maybe Carnage Tyrant. Should I stick to the single target removal (works fine), or add some sweepers?
Any artifacts/enchantments I should play? Not sure about the Treasure Maps yet, put them in a bit as fillers and I was very happy with them during Ixalan beta in my Abzan deck.

You click export on the deck selection screen, and you don't delete those nasty card identification letters and numbers the system adds at the end of the card name, that way you can just import decks to the client if you are missing a couple of cards you can always swap them :)

Added the importable list (in spoiler).

Had a fun game vs UB Scarab God - Liliana exiled, Scarab God exiled, Champion of Wits exiled, Treasure map exiled, drop down Carnage Tyrant.
I just wish we had some ramp spells, not just dorks. They drop like flies :-/

Grow from the Ashes, Hour of Promise and the enchantment Gift of Paradise can ramp without being as easily killed, bit more expensive though.

I'd be tempted to run Sweltering Suns as anti-aggro tech, can cycle it later too or maybe Hour of Devastation. I'd be interested in having more than 1 Lyra too.

I’m not running anything that expensive, that I’d want any ramp above 2cmc. Wish we had Something like Rampant Growth or Wild Growth.

A sweeper might be nice, BUT 1RR on t3 is greedy with current mana, kilka my dorks and I can’t draw it with Ajani. I have one Hour of Devastation, so I'll try it out but at the moment I’m testing 2x Seal Away.
Yeah, Lyra is going to be my next Mythic WC.

Ok, the aggro matchup was very inconsistent, so I just dropped the mana dorks and added removal - it's more of a Naya Control deck now with Good Stuff.

I think I need at least 1 more Lyra, maybe Carnage Tyrant. Should I stick to the single target removal (works fine), or add some sweepers?

Hey not everyone has an x-bone, for the ego rub.
Ok so the deck feels kinda everywhere, but so far so good
Aggro
1-0 vs red aggro -the 1-2 creatures deck-
2-0 vs Mono Black Aggro, exile was MVP

Control
0-1 vs Control and a fatal error dropping a tapped land when my opponent has tapped out for aT3 Azcanta and we could have resolved Chandra.

Mana screw...
0-1
1-1
---
3-2 so far

I made some changes after this first round, some rare lands that I have and Settle the Wreckage mainly, I didn't have 4 Phoenix either so just changing a bit the ratios.


Spoiler


This pile makes me want to try Jeskai Good stuff I blue can offer card advantage and that could be huge.

Nice, you’re playing the new version or the previous with ramp?

Thanks for testing Cucho. You don’t have Samut or did you ommit her on purpose. She’d help tremendously vs control.

I got her I believe two copies... I chopped her she always sucked in my GR Monsters deck, Glory Bringer is far better, I guess my GB deck had plenty of haste so I might be missing the value of Samut.
I do remember It felt great to cast her on the opponent end step and being a blow out for control.

With a slower deck like this, she's pretty necessary against control. You cast her either his EoT or your's if he taps-out for a draw spell. Even if he removes it, he's on the back heel and you can cast something different to put pressure.

I had to add Fumigate x2 because of all the hexproof **** running around. Unluckily I don't have Settle the Wreckage. Dropped the maps, dropped 1 abrade for 2nd Lyra.

A lot of removal and counters running around, so a full pack of Carnage Tyrant would be nice. Probably in place of the Glorybringer as the haste isn't really needed and I have a lot of removal anyway.

Edit: Fumigate is awesome.
