Garruk, Caller of Beasts Discussion

Overall I like your deck. I would definitely change out Chameleon Colossus for Heroes' Bane. I also find that for Xenagos decks Garruk, Caller of Beasts does better than Garruk, Primal Hunter. I would also consider finding a spot for Nylea, God of the Hunt and Dragon Throne of Tarkir to give your non-evasive guys trample.

I'm going to assume no, seeing as you have Dromar, the Banisher on your banlist. Also, if your opponent has their own Grand Abolisher it will protect their permanents on their turn.

Wall of Nets + Avatar of Slaughter/Warmonger Hellkite

-All your creatures are forced to attack, your opponent blocks with the Wall and gets to exile one, which can break your lock.

Hellkite Tyrant + Sun Quan, Lord of Wu/Torrent Elemental

-The Tyrant can swing at you either unblockably or through your tapped creatures and steal all your artifacts, some of which are lock pieces.

Sheoldred, Whispering One/Meren of Clan Nel Toth + Something on the banned list

-Sheoldred and Meren have triggered abilities that rez things from the graveyard, such as Ixidron (but Meren has to have generated at least one counter to be proliferated through Atraxa, Praetors' Voice for example).

Garruk, Caller of Beasts/Gideon, Ally of Zendikar Emblem

-While your opponent cannot ultimate their walkers since you can Pithing Needle them once you go off,but if these are preexisting, there's nothing you can do about them. There's no way around this other than starting the game over with Karn Liberated, so I wouldn't worry too much about them.

Arbiter of the Ideal

-If this untaps, it can drop "banlisted" cards onto the battlefield.

So those are a few ideas I have for banlist additions. Also, I named my note page for this project Breaker of Armies just for lolz :3

Beast Within and Chaos Warp are probably the best removal (non-burn) cards in this color. And for modern you will definitely want like Ground Seal sideboard against graveyard decks. Also Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is great vs control decks. Mistcutter Hydra is spectacular vs blue decks and Polukranos, World Eater is just a good creature.

I'll list some other neat cards too :P Fanatic of Xenagos Overwhelming Stampede Hull Breach Blasphemous Act Strangleroot Geist Courser of Kruphix Stormbreath Dragon Savage Summoning (good anti-control sideboard card)

Stephencliffe, i forgot to put Nylea, God of the Hunt in there to give my creatures such as heroes bane trample at a solid rate. Im not a fan of Murderous Cut bc that means i have to exile my graveyard cards which i try to get back anyway with Pulse of Murasa or Reclaim. As for Abrupt Decay, i may look into that. Im not too concerned about the number of cards in my deck, because i can then take advantage of Nissa, Worldwaker for extra lands or Garruk, Caller of Beasts for extra creatures. Tarmogoyf im not a fan of really, and im not 100% willing to go with Liliana of the Veil to keep synergy. Also, this is a deck that I have been using alot and it works really well, as long as i keep on attacking to clear their creatures, or use archfiend of depravity. I will look into Abrupt Decay. Thanks for the feedback.

Looks like you'll have issues with card balance. This deck is 100% dependent on drawing hydras, but you only have 8 in the whole deck. I'd recommend putting more in and/or including some form of creature fetch to make sure you can actually get them when needed. Consider Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Oath of Nissa, Brutalizer Exarch, Chord of Calling, Fauna Shaman, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, Natural Order, Primal Command, Summoner's Pact, Survival of the Fittest, Tooth and Nail, etc. Some are pretty mana costly, but you've got so much mana ramp going on, they can be manageable anyways.

Man, there's a lot here. Personally I would take out about 3-4 lands. 42 seems a bit much, you really don't wanna be flooded.

In my deck Xenagos, the Chubby Chaser, I use big creatures to get the most out of Xenagos while stopping my opponents dead in their tracks with cards like Price of Glory, City of Solitude, Urabrask the Hidden and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, heck you could really use a card like Winter Orb after a huge creature is out.

Removal I use around 8-10 sources. Chandra's Ignition and Blasphemous Act are the best in red. Your spot removal is pretty spot on ;p except maybe use Reclamation Sage or Bane of Progress instead of the caterpillar.

For tutors Green Sun's Zenith is amazing. And Tooth and Nail mostly wins me games.

For cuts I would cut out Fires of Yavimaya and your haste sources because if you play a dude Xenagos will give it haste. Seems redundant. Chandra because she does little for you because if your dudes are huge and have trample it doesn't matter if their creatures block. you could play Garruk, Caller of Beasts. Curse of Predation when you could play Berserk. Avenger of Zendikar seems too slow here, to me Xenagos and tokens really don't mix. Desolation Twin seems too expensive for this deck for giving you two 10/10s with no abilities. Burn from Within doesn't do enough to me to just kill one creature.

Coming in I would definitely put in Oracle of Mul Daya, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Strionic Resonator, Mage Slayer, Scourge of the Throne, Dragonlord Atarka, Savage Beating, Aggravated Assault, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Greater Good, Thunderfoot Baloth, Blood Moon, Kalonian Hydra seems good.

Overall, good deck. R/G is fairly easy to build. Finally, don't let somebody tell you that the deck you worked hard to build is a fail. Let them give you pointers and suggestions but you do whatever the hell you wanna do. Control is a hard archaetype to play, it takes timing and it always draws some hate (trust me I know). If you didn't like it that's fine, but don't let other people take the control player out of you. If they don't like it, tell them to board cards in that deal with it. That's their issue not yours. Good luck and above all else have fun!

what do you mean expensive planeswalkers? there are plenty of decent budget planeswalkers that would help here. Jace Beleren, Jace, Architect of Thought, Garruk, Caller of Beasts. Lastly, i'm pretty sure Magistrate's Scepter would be decent here if you could grab vorel quickly.
