Garruk, Caller of Beasts Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Why Do So Few Decks ...

You can also cheat him out with Garruk, Caller of Beasts. I currently run 3x in my Nayafriends modern deck where I can also cheat them out with Samut, the Tested or Nahiri, the Harbinger if I want to both attack and produce their tokens the same turn.

It's a fun card. But too long to get out for Modern.

When you considered a Path to Exile / Terminate / Meddling Mage hault them in their tracks, to name a few. Plus without Haste, it's a dead card for a whole turn.

Ramping into a dud that will be an immediate target generally isn't a good idea, especially in Modern. :/

Nice, but I would replace Garruk, Caller of Beasts with Garruk, Primal Hunter

Have you ever thought of including a new planwalker like Garruk, Caller of Beasts because of the synergy it has with the creatures? Greetings.

DogKnight156 It's fine to run birds instead of Hierarch, you just lost out a little bit of value. If you own any Llanowar Elves i'd probably recommend them over birds just for this deck just because the 1 power could be relevant in a close game.

PotatoJed I don't really keep up with standard, so I hadn't seen that card, but now that I have its definitely being included in this list 100%.

6ixer While I do like Garruk, Caller of Beasts he costs 6 and is just way too slow for modern IMO. Garruk Wildspeaker is way better for this deck because i can get him easily on turn 2 or 3, and he has a way to protect himself with his -1 to creature damage. Thanks for the comments

Back when Emblems were all the rage, but reworked for current style of gaming.

Void From History

Legendary Sorcery

Exile any Emblem. It's owner loses 5 life.

"With enough practice, even the untouchable fall." - Ugin

See, I was in a group that LOOOVED Emblems. Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets to name a few.

I always felt Emblems were unfair. There shouldn't be something in the game that, once made, is 100% completely untouchable. But there wasn't anything. So I had to learn how to become a better player, instead.

Always got crap for this idea, too. Literally every person I told it to would yell at me and insult me. Idk why, I feel like it could bring a new layer to the game. It's so niche that it barely even functions, but is entirely decimating to opponents who have the Emblems. I think it's a cool idea.

Same challenge. Card you have always wanted made.

She has a nice chunk of starting loyalty and blows up a few problematic creatures, but otherwise ehhhhhhhhhhhh....

The problem is her +1 doesn't protect her much since it can whiff. Ajani Unyielding, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Garruk, Caller of Beasts, in comparison put either more types of cards into your hand or multiple cards in your hand. That way, you can either grind your opponent down through attrition or at least find a specific answer.

Her -3 is definitely relevant, but again, it's more situational and doesn't deal with your opponent's non-flying 100/100 trampling eldrazi elephant raptor of doom.

These two factors mean she'll probably never ult, which isn't a good measurement of a planeswalker anyway (since most planeswalker ults win the game).

I dunno, maybe she will end up being relevant? It just seems like she's really ho-hum for a 5 mana 'walker in green. If your board is empty, she can't protect herself and she may even whiff on the +1, so really her only saving grace is that she'll have 6 loyalty. That still doesn't seem all that great in a format with a 5/4 for or against a deck that can play their 5 mana planeswalker and use its +1 to Negate or Spell Pierce yours.

Seems sweet, but a little clunky if u don't have Garruk, Caller of Beasts. Maybe you could splash for Polymorph? Also, Arbor Elf is better with Utopia Sprawl than the other elves.

DrkNinja you're right about the Shamanic Revelation. Thanks a lot!

I prefer using Garruk Wildspeaker over Garruk, Caller of Beasts because:

  • 4 CMC instead of 6.

  • The +1 is REALLY helpfull because of the elves low CMC.

  • The ultimate is a free Ezuri's ability.
