Garruk, Caller of Beasts Discussion

You may want to consider adding Garruk, Caller of Beasts to this deck. I had him in my wurm deck with worldspine. He's excellent for cheating him out early with his -3 which he can do right away.
Edit: derp, didn't see him at the bottom there! Excellent choice lol

Id recommend running Breeding Pool instead of the Basic islands. I would also consider some of the green walkers Nissa, Worldwaker and Garruk Wildspeaker for mana among other things, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Garruk, Caller of Beasts for draw.

Hey slayingmatt1234 thanks for the feedback, all suggestions are appreciated!
After looking through your deck, it does seem like we've taken quite the different direction to Karametra. When I first brewed this deck, I wanted to take advantage of the flash/recursion creatures that trigger his landfall ability into the most powerful X cost spells I could find. This led me towards a lot of mana doublers, high ramp spells, and even ramp creatures. The end result led me into 2 recurring scenarios in play; snowball out of control with 13+ lands by turn 5-6 consistently pulling Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (My personal favourite card), or getting consistently locked down by the 3 other players who do not want to see Vorinclex every game.
Now for your suggestions, I used to run Stonecloaker for the same reason you mentioned, but I never found using him more than once a turn to be helpful, and any of the enchantress creatures at same or less cost seemed to net me card advantage more often if not always.
Knight of the Reliquary seemed to play too slow for me, I put a lot of creature tutoring so my main landfall triggers have to be multiple triggers in a turn. I found the same with Emeria Shepherd, thought a GREAT card, I just never looked to pick it over any 7+ drop that I normally tutor for. I also leaned towards creature protection over recursion, with cards like Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, and Teferi's Protection, I always found the instant answer to boardwipes to lean in my favor and end up setting everyone else behind.
I will look to add more enchantments if I can find some that tackle the main decks in my playgroup. In my playgroup specifically, I found some interesting answers that I included in the deck. Ground Seal against The Scarab God deck, Blind Obedience against Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder 's Sneak Attack + Maelstrom Wanderer deck, and Stony Silence + Aura of Silence against Sharuum the Hegemon artifact control deck + Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith voltron equipment. The end result now, was a consistent easy 3v1 win.
If you had the pleasure of speaking to any of my friends in my playgroup, they'd tell you that in play, this deck is a TERROR. Ulvenwald Hydra is a champ for cheating Rogue's Passage into play into an easy 20+ damage, an early Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger through Natural Order always locks my opponents to pay from behind, and Worldspine Wurm becomes so easy to play with Fauna Shaman + Garruk, Caller of Beasts / Selvala's Stampede. Any of the instant X spells with a mana doubler guarantees a win ( White Sun's Zenith, Entreat the Angels, Hydra Broodmaster ). A well timed Rishkar's Expertise into Overwhelming Stampede or Genesis Wave closes out easy.

Hey all...quick question...is Magus of the Moon better here than Blood Moon? Both Oath of Nissa and Garruk, Caller of Beasts can "dig/tutor" for Magus of the Moon....but it is so darn killable that I'm not sure...would love everyone's input.

I would honestly put Cloudstone Curio in the mainboard with all of the ETB effects you have. That is something that is probably worth multiple slots because of the strong synergy you have with it in the deck.
If you're looking for cards to take out for Cloudstone Curio I would recommend one Garruk, Caller of Beasts and Reverent Hunter. You have multiple Garruks so one less probably isn't a problem and Reverent Hunter just seems lackluster and unnecessary.
I second Scorprix's thought on Blood Moon. If Cloudstone Curio is in the deck, Oath of Nissa or Utopia Sprawl can bounce it when you need to use your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. You stall your opponent, but it doesn't effect you.
Scorprix - Pretty sure I'm not apart of it, but just to clarify, who is "yal"?

Garruk, Caller of Beasts because why wouldn't you want another way to cast creatures for free
