Garruk, Apex Predator Discussion

woodgateski on Mistress of Poisons, Hapatra Primer

With the amount of tokens Hapatra decks can generate, putting Cryptolith Rite in the main deck and including Paradox Engine would be a HUGE combo for mana ramp, especially if From Beyond or Awakening Zone are included (tap for mana, then sac for mana. If a card like Grave Pact is already active, then force your opponents to sac for every one of them). Throw in Throne of the God-Pharaoh for some crazy damage across the table with Cryptolith Rite.

Bontu the Glorified might be a good addition for some life drain and scry as he is cheap to cast and is super easy to activate in this deck. Rhonas the Indomitable is also pretty good for this deck. Easy to activate, pumps up your creatures, can give any infect guys trample (scary), and MORE SNEKS!

Since his cost seams to be coming down (still a bit pricey), look out for Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. Good WC biggy to take all the focus away from your snake generation.

Heroic Intervention for the instant speed protection, maybe?

This deck can very easily run Planeswalker free, but Garruk, Apex Predator can be another maybeboard addition.

Panzerforge on Do Planeswalker emblems remain in ...

Even worse, the Emblem is created by the player that has the Emblem (as pointed out in 113.2, above), that player owns that Emblem...
So in a multi-player game, if you've received an emblem from Garruk, Apex Predator, that emblem doesn't go away even if the player that controlled Garruk loses the game.

So I know it's not a budget suggestion by any stretch of the imagination, but have you considered Garruk, Apex Predator over Garruk, Primal Hunter? I know the Hunter gives card draw, but depending on your meta I think the Predator would be a much better add. Both his +1 abilities are solid, and he has removal.

So I just bought the 2014 Guided by Nature Precon and have been agonizing over what fixes I'm going to do to it. I am currently debating whether I want to keep it mono-green and stick Ezuri, Renegade Leader in command, or if I want to cross over into the Golgari world and make use of Rhys the Exiled. Anyway, +1 from me sir! Solid build.

Hey back landofMordor! So my deck is looking a little wonky right now. I went and bought the cards on my original deck this afternoon, THEN I decided it would be a good idea to look through my uncommons and rares (I know, I'm special). I found some cards in there that I thought might fit better, so I swapped those out. I'm feeling okay about where the deck is now, but I'm thinking I need to take out:


Avatar of Woe


Graveblade Marauder

Hamletback Goliath

And I'm on the fence about a few other cards. I think I am in need of cards that give +1/+1 counters and at least two more sacrifice outlets to really tie this deck together. I'm planning on getting a Bane of Progress to replace Terastodon, I've realized that Bane is a better fit for this type of deck because of his counters. And for a free sac outlet I'm thinking about Nantuko Husk. I'm unsure about the Husk because his counters are only till the end of the turn. I also plan to main board a Sifter of Skulls, my local shop did not have one.

Two of the biggest things that are different from your deck are my Planeswalkers. Garruk, Apex Predator and Vraska the Unseen are cards that I own and felt like they would pair nicely with Kresh. I'd like to know your thoughts. I also felt that Kumano, Master Yamabushi could be an interesting burn addition, we'll see how well he plays.

Anyway, I feel like the core of the deck is good for burn. I feel like I just need to make some little tweeks to get it to a decent spot and would really like your input!

No Primal Vigor? It gets ridiculous when paired with Doubling Season. Also, Garruk, Apex Predator would work quite well in here.

Busse: Black specifically has Hero's Downfall and Ruinous Path and green gives you access to Beast Within, potentially Abrupt Decay and Garruk, Apex Predator if you really wanted to. Not to mention all the proactive discard black provides.

Try -1 Garruk, Apex Predator-1 Reclaim-2 Kozilek's Return (main. Seems more sideboard)+2 Woodweaver's Puzzleknot+1 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon+1 Chandra, Torch of Defiance or another Ugin

I feel like you will have a much more consistent turn turn 4 Emrakul/Ugin/Ulamog hit (which is what you want) I also feel you might want Servant of the Conduit in here to get some things down earlier.

Just a little food for thought. I ran this deck up until Emrakul was banned. Was a very sad day.HFGL
