Garruk, Apex Predator Discussion

stewbert01 on Red Green Walker Tron

Bulldawg1310 I really am just looking to build the optimal build (not worrying about money) I just am thinking about how useful it can be to have that mana of any color to cast say Garruk, Apex Predator without Oath of Nissa. Not sure if fetches and shocks are the best way to do that. Maybe? Also I shall text with Matter Reshaper to be certain about it.

Not sure if you saw my last comment:

I am no longer in need of the Chandra, Flamecaller. Would you consider Restoration Angel, Oath of Nissa, Garruk, Apex Predator, Birds of Paradise, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar ($25.76)


3 Thought-Knot Seer, Titania, Protector of Argoth, Ramunap Excavator, and Kataki, War's Wage ($30.28) (I'm willing to include something else if that is necessary as well)

I used TCG market prices for all of them (the difference is to account for the walkers and the fact that I believe that some cards are a bit undervalued by tcg but that is what I used).

Perpetual on Rainbow Superfriends Suggestions

2 months ago

For my rainbow super friends deck I have found it easier to have creatures than to deny my opponents any creatures. I have only 19 Planeswalkers, chosen carefully to offer at least one, hopefully two of the following: Card draw, Creature Tokens, Removal, Emblems, Ramp. For example, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury fits because of tokens, ramp, removal, and card draw. Garruk, Apex Predator brings removal, tokens, and an emblem. Elspeth, Sun's Champion offers tokens, mass removal, and an emblem. Control-ish emblems like those on Dovin Baan, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, or Narset Transcendent can be truly brutal with more than one in play.

As KIngWiggins mentioned, Proliferate is also helpful. Inexorable Tide is a beast. I also run Tezzeret's Gambit, Steady Progress, Spread the Sickness, Contagion Engine, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

My main creature package is Allies, with General Tazri for a Commander. The Allies offer me mana dorks, card draw, beat sticks, artifact removal, and a couple of non-planeswalker win cons.

I will use where warranted. I'm not THAT stubborn about it.

For the example, that new Nissa, Steward of Elements card took my fancy, after I played with it at prerelease.

A lot of times I just find a bit OP, which for me means it's not as fun to play. That's the Jenny in me.

Here's a link to the Garruk deck I made around the time of Fate Reforged, when there were heaps of great ramp cards in Standard.

Dirty Emerald

I still rock this around the kitchen table, but not too often as it's very good in multiplayer.

One night my friend was playing Slivers and everyone ganged up on him.

Except me. I was ramping my little heart out.

By the time his deck got taken down I had tutored Garruk, Apex Predator, and played it.

Then I just kept spitting out 3/3 Beasts with deathtouch until my Ugin, the Spirit Dragon hit its ultimate.

My Slivers friend was almost crying with rage that I had been left unchecked.

That's why I don't play that deck much, any more.

No surprise that deck was not you ... I was amazed to see you doing anything in Green! Especially since WB (and maybe UR) Control is much more your jam. And yeah, I know you love brewing from scratch ... I thought about not even sharing it but figured it was worth it in case some card caught your eye and made you go "Oooooh, that's exactly what I was looking for" :-)

I like all the Garruks (though I've only played with Garruk Wildspeaker ... I normally run 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance in RG Ponza, but I can cast Garruk on T2 pretty consistently, and his +1 then yields another 3 mana), and am hopeful he shows up in a set again relatively soon. Your BG deck makes me want to try Garruk, Apex Predator out sometime though!

Speaking of BG, I've been fiddling with a +1/+1 counters deck in Modern ... trying to find a non-terrible mix of cards like Hardened Scales, Winding Constrictor, Corpsejack Menace, and Primordial Hydra. It's still SUPER-janky, but I think it's got some potential ...

Anyways, take care!

I don't think you can really link things properly in chat.

I looked at that list, but it is SO not me.

It was as though someone asked me what all my least favourite cards were, in Standard, and then put them all into one deck!

I built a Ramp deck around the time of M15.

It used Liliana Vess as a tutor and ramped into Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Garruk, Apex Predator.

One night I was able to ultimate all three Planeswalkers in one game. The player sitting next to me was killing himself with laughter. I wasn't a very good player in those days, so it was kind of funny.

To me the joy of Magic isn't really copying other people's ideas, so I'm not really interested in the Pro decks, other than to test against.

Sure I might borrow an idea here or there, but the bones of all my decks come from looking at cards that interest me, and thinking about how I can make a deck with them that will work.

I often build decks around just one card. That's how Angelic High came together.

Stitcher's Graft was spoiled and I came up with an idea thay worked for StuBi.

By the way, he beat Temur Marvel with Angelic High 2-0, the other night.

In one game Marvel brought all four of its Ulamogs on to the field.

Anyway, that's along rant from me. It's late here.
