Garruk, Primal Hunter Discussion

Cyrialis on The daily recommended dosage of Greens

KylnMaybe I should :) A good friend of mine has an omnath Edh Deck and wrecks face with it (especially with, for example Doubling Cube.But with my current build I would need more trample cards for this to work.Normally I rather spent the mana I have instead of saving up, but I will give it a try! Thank you!


Thanks for the suggestions! Garruk, Primal Hunter is actually in my sideboard. Under normal circumstances, I run Rishkar's Expertise instead. Still arguing internally what is better for me.I just made the experience, that if I +1 him, he gets beaten down or heavily targeted, thus sometimes not enabling me to draw the cards from the -3. Still trying to find my peace with him, if I should include him or not. Its got mainly to do with the people I play against.Nessian Wilds Ravager I would consider. Only to see people squabble and with the plus ones plus ones he would actually gain a lot of board presence... Could you tell me how often the tribute triggers?

I think 42 creatures is quite much even for a creature based strategy. I'd personally cut some of them for spells like: Genesis Wave as a mana sink and win con, Beast Within since it's the best green removal, Garruk, Primal Hunter for card draw and some artifact and entchantment removal with Nature's Claim and Krosan Grip because green is just so good in it. Doubling Cube is definetly a must-include imo.

nice, ever consider Sandwurm Convergence?Garruk, Primal Hunter is also a fun one for all the wurms it can give you if you have a lot of land.

Garruk, Primal Hunter, when added to a deck, does not add a 6/6 wurm to the token list

Nylea, God of the Hunt is a great card for such a deck. Spreads trample, and can swing as a 12/12- I don't see that as a bad thing at all.

You have Savage Ventmaw but no Aggravated Assault?

Garruk, Primal Hunter is likely better as a method to draw cards than anything else in the deck. +X/+X on a creature Hunter's Insight is a similar card that would probably do you well, too.

Zhur-Taa Druid seems like good acceleration. Your curve is extremely high and you don't have enough acceleration to meet your mana needs (I playtested the deck and kind of durdled around until turn 6, because even with Elvish Mystic and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, missed land drops meant that 20 cards in the deck couldn't be cast until the usual turn 6 or beyond anyway).

Garruk, Caller of Beasts might work better than Garruk, Primal Hunter

Also, why no Skullclamp ?

A Worldly Tutor is always good, gets you what you need.

I would also suggest Arbor Elf (mostly because it's my favourite card, but also because it's synergy with Dryad Arbor is so good) Also Bear Umbra is amazing with Dryad Arbor

One last thing, maybe toss in some staples like Sensei's Divining Top & Solemn Simulacrum
