Ruin in Their Wake
 
Apparently the Eldrazi even have a version of Rampant Growth - despite being "unnatural", that's not cut off from them. You basically need to be a base-green-and-Wastes deck to get the maximum advantage out of it, which is very restrictive compared to the original Rampant Growth and most of its variants. But it is solid enough for a deck that absolutely needs it, and you can also turn it around and use it as Sylvan Scrying to get your Wastes and activate your splashed Eldrazi abilities. It's not the most spectacular card in any format, but it does add a couple of additional considerations to the deckbuilding process.
