Deck Description

I bought the blue green scion ramp intro pack from Battle for Zendikar and liked it so much I wanted to improve it.

Scions aren't the ideal way to ramp but with Cryptolith Rites making each scion worth 2 mana it gets a bit better.
Kiora is card draw that works well with Emrakul.

How to Play

1. Play Cryptolith Rites
2. Bake some tasty scones
3. Cast Emrakul
4. Win

Deck discussion for U G Scion Ramp

If my understanding is correct, you use Cryptolith Rite to get one more mana out each of the scion tokens. I like that idea.

Scions by themselves aren't the best way to ramp but Cryptolith Rite makes them a bit better

Second Harvest would be awesome in here. Effectively doubles your mana dorks.

Tentacruel being banned is the only thing stopping this being Standard legal. I see this was posted when she wasn't banned, but if you want to continue using this in Standard, the most logical replacement is Ulamog. Endless One is another, less impressive, option that is a good use of all that mana. Walking Ballista is another solid replacement option.

Something like Vile Redeemer or Void Attendant might be worth consideration. Although, Attendant may need a couple Transgress the Mind or something to be effective.
