Garruk, Caller of Beasts Discussion

PookandPie on Mean Green Elves Machine

I forgot to unsubscribe from the thread so I kept getting notifications, lol, but I did realize something else I can suggest:

Is there a reason you're using Glissa Sunseeker over Reclamation Sage? Sage destroys something ASAP, which is important to not have to wait for summoning sickness if you're against something like, say, Arcum Dagsson, because you will most likely need to blow something up if you hope to get to your fourth turn (my Arcum deck consistently goes off and ends games on my turn 3 or 4, so you should at least be able to pop something before then). The more ways to stop uninteractive combos that can win early, the better, right? I get that Glissa is reusable, but if your deck wins relatively consistently between turns 6-8 (when I goldfished your deck in the playtester, that seemed to be a fair estimate) then I don't see the need for something to be reusable and only hit artifacts, not enchantments (when there are some enchantments that royally screw your strategy that need to be destroyed ASAP, too).

Heck, Nullmage Shepherd is one I consistently like better than Glissa. Capable of destroying artifacts and enchantments, and does so relatively well even through wraths in Commander (as 3 other creatures isn't really a difficult metric to meet).

So I'd suggest one of those above Glissa, for sure. Rec Sage is the fastest option of the bunch, though.

Also, I just thought I'd bring something up real quick: I playtested your deck twice and both times Sylvan Messenger whiffed pretty hard (it bottoming Craterhoof hurts). It can only put some out of 33 cards of your deck into your hand, which means there is a decent chance of only grabbing one card off of it at most. Natural Order is the same cost and just lets you go grab whatever big thing you want (my wife usually gets Regal Force, Vigor, or Craterhoof with it, but there can be times when grabbing another card is the better play).

Actually, Natural Order might be better to replace Nissa Revane, as you're not even running Nissa's Chosen anymore (I swear it was in here when I checked last) and life gain for 5 turns into a sixth turn ultimate (which takes until turn 10(!!) at minimum) is pretty bad. Or, at least Garruk, Caller of Beasts or something that actually helps your board state the turns you cast it, unlike Nissa which has to make it through six turns just to ultimate. Garruk/Natural Order would help you find more easily abused sources of lifegain (like Wellwisher + untaps) if you want to kill via Resevoir, while Nissa just seems overall mediocre right now.

Emzed on Penta: Child of Alara

Brilliant Ultimatum and Seek the Horizon aren't very good cards, i think you would do just fine without them.
Currently, your deck is all powerful fatties, but it lacks a supporting shell around them: Cards that cheat creatures into play (Elvish Piper, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Selvala's Stampede), cards that benefit from them (Rishkar's Expertise, Chandra's Ignition), cards that interact with the opposition (Austere Command, Cyclonic Rift, Ashen Rider) and cards that protect you from bad things (Swan Song, Stubborn Denial) seem like they would be helpful.

DredgarI took a look at your binder, and I'm interested in Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, Waste Not (foiled), Primeval Titan, Ghost Quarter, Viscera Seer, Scavenging Ooze, Ulvenwald Hydra (foiled), Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Cultivate, Master Biomancer, Gyre Sage, and Commander's Sphere. The grand total of the prices tapped out provides is $36.84, which is enough for 3 Fatal Push's and a Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip.(2 dollar difference, the grand total is $38.22

DarkEclipse18 on RG EDH (were)wolves - psredh

Hey so got 2 suggestions:

Domri Rade: With a lot of the deck being creatures he is a big player, combine his effect with Worldly Tutor and you can draw into the creature. Also his 'fight' ability is not to be taken lightly, it is Green Removal for most cases.

Worldly Tutor: Tutor a creature to the top, simple :3

Garruk, Caller of Beasts: Again can get you a creature more often then not, can play a bigger creature for free.

Arlinn Kord  Flip if nothing more then flavor she is a nice walker, both sides give a buff, gives a wolf and has a lightning bolt minus

More (were)wolves: these should be added: Immerwolf, Mayor of Avabruck  Flip, Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip

Also take a look Here (https://edhrec.com/tribes/werewolves) for some extra ideas, sorry I cannot get hyperlink to work at all!

My focus as per title is Managorger Hydra I could use any advice as to make this even better. I would prefer to stay Mono-Green. Gorger Growth Deck Link

RicketyEng on Rhonas, god of trample

3 weeks ago

I got a Rhonas at prerelease and in a couple of games he was definitely the only reason I won. I'll list a few thoughts for cards that might help and some that you might not need.

Caustic Caterpillar - Reclamation Sage does the same job but better so I don't think you need both.

Evolutionary Leap - I have a soft spot for this card. It can give you some use out of your small creatures once their ETB has been used. Greater Good does fill a similar role so you may prefer one or the other or both.

Magus of the Library - doesn't feel like a good card. Its draw ability would be nice to have but the condition feels way too specific.

Rancor - a self recurring source of trample is a very useful thing to have.

Overrun and Overwhelming Stampede - both are good ways to close out a game.

Rogue's Passage - works as an alternative evasion to trample. Especially good for getting Rhonas in for commander damage if you can't get trample onto him.

Garruk's Horde - works nicely as a big creature and as extra card advantage.

Garruk, Caller of Beasts - works well in a deck that wants to play big creatures.

As a general note, I would suggest looking through your collection or through Gatherer with power >= 4 in mind. That is what turns on Rhonas so having a lot of those big creatures can help with consistently getting him online.

Why not both? Just in case you can't find the one you're looking for. If you ever add a reliable creature tutor, you can probably fetch for the Serpopard easier than an enchantment. Also, if you want another planeswalker, Garruk, Caller of Beasts might be useful.
