Garruk, Cursed Huntsman Discussion
2 weeks ago
(WOW... It's been so long. So where do we begin?)
As of this Post, I now need to cut 47 Cards to get to the 99 + 1 CMDR Ruling.
If what CommandCast (JoshLeeKwai) said about Planeswalkers being awesome w/ the best NOT needing to use an Ultimate for a way to use a Walker for that Reason Alone, the Following is to Stay; like it or not:
Chandra, Awakened Inferno/Chandra, Torch of Defiance: The First Chandra in this case can't be Countered as a Static Ability; & her +2 can easily be repeatable; & Scorch all opponents as a Wincon Altogether; plus, it DOESN'T target, so it Bypasses Hexproof or "Super-Hexproof". Torch of Defiance's first +1 goes Impulsive Draw (WotC, you need an Evergreen Term for that; pronto. YOU HEAR ME???), so it goes well w/ Aminatou's +1, & even the Top: which will be used ALOT. Even otherwise, 2 Damage to Each Opponent; again, Anti "Super-Hexproof". Plus, her other +1 is literal Mana Ramp "Add ."
Elspeth, Sun's Champion: +1 for 3 White Soldier Creature Tokens? -3 to essentially Wipe a board of Mayael the Anima/Atla Palani, Nest Tender made Army of Gluttonous Fat? Awesome. Even her -7 Ultimate gives your creatures +2/+2 & Flying. This is Not always needed, but soaring in the Air can be useful in a Pinch.
Garruk Wildspeaker: OH. CRAP. This is massive. Garruk #1's +1 can Untap Lands; especially ones that enter play Tapped, or hell, reuse them for Mana & Abilities. His -1 creates a 3/3 Beast. I'd say anything about his -4, but Garruk, Cursed Huntsman already has a -6 that's basically the same thing; but in a way that makes me ask: "WotC? How do you kill off Emblems?"
Jace, the Mind Sculptor: If he is that OP, be it his +2 to Fateseal anyone; EVEN YOU when you want to Get an Advantage. 0 is a Literal Top Effect. -1 bounces a Creature back to it's owner's hand. -12 might be why this was OP when it was released back when Worldwake was released. Exiling a Library is amazing, & forcing one to use their Hand as a Library would mean one thing: Ashiok, Dream Render. Forbidding your opponents to Search for the one Key Card needed. Ashiok, Dream Render + Jace, the Mind Sculptor may be Ultimate Excessive, but I'd keep either anyway.
Nahiri, the Harbinger: Her +2 Has her Rummaging (Discard one to Draw one), but she shines in Exiling. She can Exile an Enchantment as one-shot Removal, & by Tapping either a Creature or Artifact, they are just as susceptible from such Exiling. As you have Zilch other Creatures, Nahiri's -8 won't work there. Even your Artifice isn't worth Tutoring just to keep into play by Aminatou's Flickering. An amazing Walker All-Around.
Nissa, Vital Force: Her +1 Turns a Land you control into a 5/5 Elemental Creature with Haste that's still a Land. -3 even can recur a Permanent from your Grave to your Hand.
Oko, Thief of Crowns: Oko's +2 has Oko being his own Chef w/ Food Tokens all over. His +1 is the closest Superfriends/Avengers has for a Humility w/ A Planeswalker Spark. Why would you trade anything w/ his -5 when you should ,make them suffer for Allowing WotC to BanHammer Oko, Thief of Crowns is EVERY FORMAT; Official or not, LIKE IT OR NOT.
Sarkhan Unbroken: He can +1 to Draw you a Card, & Add one Mana of any Color. Already he's a Brute; but even his -2 can grant you a 4/4 Red Dragon Token w/ Flying. Why would you suffer to use his Ultimate to Search for nothing?
Tezzeret the Seeker: You can Untap 2 Artifacts for +1, but this can also be used as a Tutor for your Artifacts. -X, & it Enters the Battlefield; requiring it to be Tapped on the Rules Text or not. Either way, you're getting a Machine; so why would you convert any of them into Vanilla Artifact Creatures? That kinda ruins the Purpose...
Vivien, Monsters' Advocate: A Stretch? Yes. A Static Ability in Mono- to look at the top of your Library at any time? OMG Yes! A Durdle Maker for +1 that makes a 3/3 Green Creature Token for the Choice of a Reach Counter, Vigilance Counter, or the OBVIOUS Trample Counter? You don't even need her -2 to Tutor up Fat when you have so much versatility here! Now how to Distribute all those counters to other Creature Tokens... XP
Xenagos, the Reveler: Get an Army of Tokens Ready. For +1, You Add X in any combination of & where X = Number of Creatures you control. & for 0, Xenagos creates a 2/2 Red & Green Satyr Creature Token with Haste. Why would you Exile the Top 7 Cards on your Library just to get even one Land?; there isn't that many lands regardless!
Alright. These are my best Walkers with no real need to use their Ultimate in Superfriends/Avengers (Sorta for a couple.). These are all to be kept in this deck though their use of Consistency. I'd like some suggestions for what to/what not to cut though. Yes, I need help yet again. Or should I get that help from the Forums? Either way, I hope it helps this time. I've other things to Attend to...
A Sen Triplets Aikido Deck...
A Zirda, the Dawnwaker Activation Cost Matters Deck...
A Pramikon, Sky Rampart Toughness Matters Deck...
A Vorthos Deck Centering around my Biggest Fear; It's Like Merinthophobia, but the Sub-Phobia of Being Gagged also applies at the same Time creating a New, Unnamed Phobia for the Vorthos Deck to be Based Upon (Companion Mandatory for Thematic Reason!)...
Many Updates to my old Decks...
Even a Pet Project of mine Outside the MTG Community.
Welp, now I have to do Mental Healing to prepare for MY OWN Vorthos Deck. I wonder what YouTube has...
...I mean, every TV Show/Movie/Literary Fiction/Interactive Fiction/Real World Event/etc. has it. There is no such thing as even one concept of media not having this. Sorry for that Episode, but it truly feels like it Transcends beyond Omni-(Insert Anything/Everything/Azathoth (Yep. I'm going H.P. Lovecraft on this.) Here.)
I'll Work on my Pet Project until I elicit a Response. Thanks again for what help you can. :)
& sorry again for the last few bits of this comment. X/

I’m not a big fan of Daarigaz. Too low impact for what this deck does. Yeah he’s a big body, but with all the sacrificing and tokens etb, I can often kill the board in one turn without Food Chain, and then if anyone is left Prossh finishes them off.
I like Garruk, Cursed Huntsman, but not for Garruk Wildspeaker. Wildspeaker ramps me every turn, jumping me from four to six, which is my sweet spot for casting Prossh the first time. If/when I can get Garruk out turn 2 (off a turn one Sol Ring) that means I cast Prossh turn three. Usually I want Purphoros and/or Impact Tremors our first, but the point is Wildspeaker is really strong. His minus provides fodder and blockers, and his ultimate (which is super easy to get to) ensures Prossh gets through.
Honestly, as much as her plus is useful and her ultimate is ridiculous, I evaluate planeswalkers for edh based on their first minus, and Vraska, Golgari Queen’s isn’t that good. It’s not terrible don’t get me wrong, but Vraska the Unseen’s ability to hit any permanent is really valuable. That being said her plus and her ultimate are basically useless to me...so I’ll think about a swap. Assassin's Trophy might be better...something to think about.
I tried Emrakul's Evangel out before, and the biggest thing for me is it specifies non-token. I have a high density of non-token creatures that I don’t really want to sacrifice, and while he doesn’t have to act until I’m ready for him, I just struggled to get the most out of him. I had more luck with Fresh Meat and even Caller of the Claw (which has the same non-token problem.) I’ll think about him again though.
I appreciate the feedback. I like seeing how people think about what I’ve put together. It makes me really think about why any individual card is here, and what the deck actually needs, so thank you. That being said this deck at the moment is actually taken apart. All my multicolor commander decks except The Mad King of Tristram live in my cube box for me to put together on the fly. That way I don’t have to have ten Misty Rainforests or Craterhoof Behemoths or whatever. I have them all sleeved the same and I can just build whatever deck I want in the moment. Also, the dragon is too strong and unfun for my playgroup, so he sits in the box more often than not so I can mess around with Yarok, Atla Palani and whatever else peaks my fancy that week. That and with COVID I haven’t played in a few weeks...but I definitely appreciate the feedback.
I’m going to get away from the landfall build the next time I put this together. I’m thinking goblins with Krenko, Mob Boss...we’ll see how it goes. There’s two goblintop deck tutors for him now so that should be fun.

Hey Mindablaze, it’s me from the Graveyard shift deck. Since you have been helping me out, I figured I should do the same.
If ur looking to run a deck that takes advantage of creatures dying, I have a couple of suggestions.
First, Darigaaz Reincarnated is a great tool for sacrifice outlets and schemes. It allows you to use him, than get him back, and kill him again to fill a value train.
For you planeswalkers, I think you should sub out your current Vraska with Vraska, Golgari Queen and you current Garruk with Garruk, Cursed Huntsman These two cards work well together, giving you some great sacrifice outlets and fodder to take advantage off.
Just some suggestions

A couple of replacements I’ve thought so far. Wilderness Reclamation for Burgeoning. Burgeoning seems like a dead card after turn 5 and I’m stuck with it. Riptide Survivor for Disruptive Pitmage. Never seemed to be able to pull off since only 1 mana to stop it Heroic Intervention for Garruk, Cursed Huntsman due to protection for wipe. Still got to figure out where to put all is dust, worldly tutor, and others in maybe board.
