Garruk, Primal Hunter Discussion

n0bunga on Nemophilist - Haunter of the Wood

Slate of Ancestry is currently considered. Recent playtests have had me hellbent more often than not.

Garruk, Primal Hunter is someone I really want to like especially for the "Oops, here come the Wurms" ultimate. But I don't think it's really for this deck.

Casey4321: Hehe, thanks.

Eiti3: Ooh, I hadn't thought of that! That could be neat! And I knew I forgot something, Cryptolith Rite goes in (and I should have Earthcraft too).

n0bunga: So many suggestions! I am worried about City of Solitude here - it denies me my second color...Armada Wurm and Advent of the Wurm definitely get slots, and I'll consider Garruk, Primal Hunter. Suture Priest seems ehh here, what's your reasoning? Panharmonicon is something I'll consider, and Grove of the Guardian goes in of course :) And I don't have money for a Gaea's Cradle unfortunately :(

But I don't want things to add! I'm over 100 already (once I add lands)! Lol. What would you cut?

City of Solitude helps you keep anyone else trying to interfere at bay.

I love that you're running the new Wurm Enchantment. Let's go full Arrakais with Armada Wurm, Advent of the Wurm, Hydra Broodmaster and Garruk, Primal Hunter.

Suture Priest is just great value.

Wilt-Leaf Liege can reenter the battlefield for you retriggering Mum.

Panharmonicon seems bonkers.

Grove of the Guardian and Gaea's Cradle should be good for lands

Emzed on It's Not Easy Being Green

I keep hearing/reading that people think green has trouble drawing cards. Sure, it can't really compete with blue, and you can certainly argue black comes in second, but green has great card advantage options as well. In my eyes, used correctly, they can be even better than most black tools (with the exceptions of Ad Nauseam and Necropotence which are both insane). I'm not going to go into detail, but just list you some green card advantage: Sylvan Library, Glimpse of Nature, Harmonize, Fecundity, Skullmulcher, Greater Good, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Genesis Wave, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, Recycle, Regal Force, Shamanic Revelation, Rishkar's Expertise, Praetor's Counsel, Seasons Past, Vizier of the Menagerie. Also, you have access to colorless cards like Mind's Eye, Memory Jar, Skullclamp, Horn of Greed and Slate of Ancestry. Obviously most of those cards require specific circumstances to work, like a high powered creature, a big number of creatures or lots of mana. Just select the ones that fit what your deck is trying to do and test to find the right number.

So I know it's not a budget suggestion by any stretch of the imagination, but have you considered Garruk, Apex Predator over Garruk, Primal Hunter? I know the Hunter gives card draw, but depending on your meta I think the Predator would be a much better add. Both his +1 abilities are solid, and he has removal.

So I just bought the 2014 Guided by Nature Precon and have been agonizing over what fixes I'm going to do to it. I am currently debating whether I want to keep it mono-green and stick Ezuri, Renegade Leader in command, or if I want to cross over into the Golgari world and make use of Rhys the Exiled. Anyway, +1 from me sir! Solid build.

With all this ramping and high-power creatures, Garruk, Primal Hunter may prove to be a worthy inclusion to the decklist. Pumps out 3/3 Beasts every turn, gives lots of green devotion, and the card draw can be instant hand replenisher.

You could use some more card draw in this list in general; Tireless Tracker, Yavimaya Elder, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Rishkar's Expertise are all valuable, powerful draw engines.

If you're having problems with pillow fort strategies, look no further than Bane of Progress. Blows up all their protective enchantments and artifacts, and gets pretty big in the process too.

Excellent decklist! +1 from me!

emrakulinsmugglers on GW tokens and such

if you want to go lower on cmc, you should instead put those Intangible Virtue mainboard.

Some low mana options for tokens are Call of the Conclave, Raise the Alarm, Servo Exhibition, and Centaur's Herald.

If you plan on making tokens, you may as well cut the angels, besides angel of invention, none of them help with making a bunch of random tokens. no, the soldiers, unless stated, are not humans, so sigarda may be something to cut.

Wayfaring Temple is a great card with tokens. You should put it in mainboard.

your two planeswalkers are nice, but if you can, try to get Garruk, Primal Hunter, or Elspeth, Knight-Errant.
