Crocanura- 3 mana can be used on a mana rock, and only gets useful in timeDisciple of the Old Ways - too weakFlamewake Phoenix - good card, but too weak for EDHYasova Dragonclaw see earlier postRakshasa's Disdain - not a sultai deck, graveyard hopefully shouldn't get that big. Besides, for three mana, you can hard counter something.Banefire - see earlier postCircle of Flame - too weak

Disciple of the Old Ways is my personal favourite.

Dimir doesn't hate anyone. Every guild is a useful puppet for the controlling dimir.

Also gruul hate simic (Ghor-Clan Rampager), the selesnya (Disciple of the Old Ways), and everybody else (Gruul Charm).

Who does simic hate?

I'm sure there's other examples as well.

Hello! First off, I think you should add more dual lands like Temple of Abandon or maybe even some Fungal Reaches ? Those are good for mana fixing and ramp.

Second, I think you should remove the following2x Disciple of the Old Ways 1x Duskdale Wurm 2x Lava Axe 2x Verdant Haven 2x Feral Animist 2x Ruination Wurm 2x Act of Treason 2x Volcanic Geyser

And one more thing, definitely add some Mistcutter Hydra

Hmm then I would aim more for a quick deck, but if I add Legion Loyalist or another 1 drop like Firedrinker Satyr or Experiment One , then what would I take out? With the exception of Ghor-Clan Rampager that is played for his bloodrush the most expensive creature is Fanatic of Xenagos for 3CMC. or if I add in a 2 drop would Gore-House Chainwalker , Deathbellow Raider or Disciple of the Old Ways be good choises?

I guess I could take Armed / Dangerous out and maybe put Dynacharge in?

That is a good idea. I will for sure put Smelt in there. I think I might sideboard the Disciple of the Old Ways . Just for now.

Thanks for the feedback!

I love the idea! Its lots of fun play testing it and gaining control of all the opponent's permanents. I don't think you need Disciple of the Old Ways it just doesn't do much for the deck. U could definitely find some good artifact removal, maybe Smelt . But the deck is awesome so +1 from me!

Hey everyone. Ever since I started collecting Dragon's Maze and Gatecrash decks, and most recently the Gruul Wilding set, I've had a fascination with creating a perfect Gruul deck. Particularily the cards that allow more mana for easily summoning larger creatures, amping up atk and def, as well as spells that can greatly destroy life force, creatures, artifacts, etc.

There's just one problem. I suck at deck building. So I need some help for making a great R/G Gruul deck that can fulfill my desires for more mana and creature summons.

Here is a list below of all Gruul based cards, as well as other cards I have collected over time.

Hey guys. Recently I've been favouring the strong Red/Green combo decks based around the Dragon's Maze and Gatecrash series. But after collecting a large number of cards I'm trying to figure out how to make a better deck than the one I have right now.
