Garruk, Caller of Beasts Discussion

Some other cards that might be fun to test if you want to cheat in big creatures:

Xenagos, God of Revels, Hellkite Charger, Scourge of the Throne, Savage Ventmaw, and Pathbreaker Ibex might also add some value. A Fight to the Death played while opponents are attacking each other might be cool.

Have fun!

Have you considered adding any Quicksilver Amulets? 4 mana to drop any creature coukd help you work in bigger guts with higher CMCs.

Plus as daN said, Garruk, Caller of Beasts might be a good idea for you as well.

I feel like Garruk, Caller of Beasts is the better Garruk, since he allows you to get heavy green creatures on the battlefield for just three loyalty. Since you have so many elves, add Elvish Archdruid. Not only does he create ridiculous amounts of mana, he doubles the power and toughness of most of your elves by giving them +1/+1. Incredible value! Also, if you like your Genesis Hydra, consider adding Genesis Wave, an elite version. Nice budget deck, hope my suggestions help, keep up the good work, and see my deck if you want more ideas!
I made a similar deck that you should check out, it shows a different take on green elves ramp:

I played against a similar mono-G devotion list a few standard rotations back, and it was beast.

A few suggestions from that experience:

  • Always keep a 2nd Nykthos in-hand to play for turn whenever you you have enough devotion to warrant an activation, but don't have an untap effect in play. It's only dead when you don't have the devotion or mana to activate it early game.

  • You probably want Craterhoof listed in the mainboard along with Chord of Calling. Only play CoCo if you make the list a more traditional elves list, but definitely play Chord.

  • You can go in 2 directions: elf tribal or mono-G devotion/mid-range. Play Heritage Druid and other elves from stock lists to make Chord-for-Craterhoof better if you go in that direction. If you go towards mid-range, back-up your Craterhoof plan with a few Polukranos, World Eater, and use its Monstrous ability with your devotion mana to clear the board.

  • If you go mid-range/devotion, add a few Eidolon of Blossoms and green enchantments and creatures to trigger it like Courser of Kruphix and Boon Satyr in addition to Nylea.

  • Garruk, Caller of Beasts, may be the better Garruk here.

  • Consider adding a few Bow of Nylea and dropping your sorceries (except for Genesis Wave?) to put more permanents and devotion into play.

  • Sideboard a few Mistcutter Hydra, some graveyard hate (Relic of Progenitus) and artifact hate (Reclamation Sage), and maybe a Choke or two.

I think the big choice here is elves or mid-range.

Happy playing!

You might want even more token producers or a more tribal list of creatures to benefit from Mana Echoes and your tremors effects. Maybe Assemble the Legion and Avenger of Zendikar?

Genesis Wave, Tooth and Nail, Defense of the Heart, Pattern of Rebirth, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, and Wild Pair might all be fun ways to cheat more creatures into play, as well.

Have fun!

Maybe add Steely Resolve naming elves, a Kindred Summons to load up on elves on the end step before you Craterhoof, and also a Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail or Pattern of Rebirth + Greater Good to give yourself more ways to cheat Craterhoof into play?

Garruk, Caller of Beasts, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, might do some work here, as well. Maybe also Doubling Season or Parallel Lives? Always Watching and Intangible Virtue?

Have fun playing!

I am happy to see so many Dino decks taking off - cool list.

Have you tested with some of these cards? They might be fun to try for card draw, cheating big creatures into play, and protecting them.

Maybe also an Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede, or Triumph of the Hordes?

Happy brewing!
