Tasigur, The Golden Fang (aka The Banana Man) used to be the spicy Gurmag Angler for control decks.  This was of course before Death Shadow crept out of the bulk bin cosplaying as Frank Reynolds with his classic problematic catch phrase “Suicide’s badass.” In eternal formats delve told you to ignore any generic mana costs.

As discussed in The Goose Deck deck-tech, green ramp is far and above abusing the color pie due to the social stigma placed on its one counter play, land destruction. Due to this loophole this deck focuses on playing extra lands with few cards needing to ever stay around.

Extra land drop cards like Explorations, Oracle of Mul Daya, and Wrenn and Seven provide smooth transitions with the Ravnica bounce lands.
