Garruk Wildspeaker Discussion
10 hours ago
Green defends against sacrifice with tokens. Each of the cards you're defending against let's you choose the creature to sacrifice. Make sure you have either plenty to sacrifice, or little chumps to sacrifice.
- Ramp into Hornet Queen or Ant Queen .
- Buy back Sprout Swarm a ton,
- Run Awakening Zone
- Ramp into Avenger of Zendikar or Rampaging Baloths (who would love your Rampant Growth ) or Hooded Hydra
- Add a Planeswalker that makes tokens and gives you other utility: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or Garruk Wildspeaker or Garruk, Primal Hunter
For pretty cheap you could replace your current hydra and the Terrastomper for the Baloths and Hydra here, just to get a feel of token vs sacrifice.

@PhotogenicParasympathetic: Hmmm. All right. Angrath has no purpose in Superfriends now. & Didn't even think Xenagos, the R & G Flood that never will (& is dead.) is that weak; His +1 shows lots of Mana Ramp in any combo of &/or Mana. If we have Tokens in question; maybe several of the creatures of this deck, it's close, but no cigar; but at least you're not limited to just . Ol', Dead Xenagos is just one of those walkers that's awesome, but the Ult. is entirely optional; not needed anyway in this case. Irony? Some of the Better Pre-WAR walkers don't even need to use their Ult. Why I removed Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , I've no idea.
But, sure. A dead God, is better than a Dead Walker (Irony? Xenagos is/was both at differing times.), though I guess some can't win as much as others. Though Dack Fayden is really garbage here, not even enough nonperms that target permanents; if, none at all. This Badass died via having his spark harvested by an Eternal while Ashiok is still at large? 2 Species-less, 2 Genderless, 2 Planeless, 2 DNAless, 2 Anythingless, 2 Fragged-Up Furious. Why...
That mentality crisis out, I'm down to 31 Walkers. Either 1 exterminate 1 good one, or 3. Though someone recommended 20, which is self-nightterror inducing to cut that many walkers, & I'm thinking of putting back Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury ; bringing me back to XXXII. I'm already trying to do something else as well; two+ things; a Vorthos Deck based on a Visual Novel, & a new-Age CHAOS deck running Yidris, Killer of the 4 Color MTG Block Impossibility. . Also updating several other decks left unmentioned.
For now, I'm IE (Upside Down 31.), but what 1, or 3 Walkers to cut? Not going to cut the Evolution Sage Engine; Cycle Duals, BFZ Duals/Shocks, among other things that do Proliferation as I play lands from the dead via Crucible of Worlds . But I've one last thing to ask: Besides Garruk Wildspeaker & his +1, What Walker centered on Lands would be best here? & no, it shouldn't be just Forest s, much less Basics; but all Lands of this deck. Because I can't find one, AT ALL. So, should I keep Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury & go from 1 or 3 Walkers to Garruk Chop to 2 or 4? Also, I apologize for the weird, & truly inane sayings for names. That, & I say this to all Elf Life: To all Elves in MTG; Don't fear progress even in Green Mana, Protect ideas of all; & not kill it. & NOT KILL ANY & EVERY IMPURITY FOR GAEA. We have Romili Reloaded of EoJ, but no RoboElves. & no, AEther Sense count's not. Sorry. DX
(EoJ equals Eye of Judgment.)

Of those stax pieces you list, Meekstone is fine, since it only affects Sliver Queen herself from your deck (or rather, that's the only creature that wouldn't untap that matters as an attacker), and shuts down opponents trying to attack you. The others are all fairly weak. Those are typically used as ways of stalling the game - playing them early to slow down your opponents. The problem is, in a walker deck like this, you don't have many ways to get around their effects to make them one-sided, and you really need your mana to be able to deploy your more expensive threats. You can't afford to not be untapping your lands.
Good job on the cuts so far. I would still recommend cutting Angrath, Captain of Chaos - his 2-use ability that makes a 2/2 and then either a replacement 2/2 or turns the first one into a 4/4 isn't great. Regardless of whether or not you decide to go in a more creature-ish direction, he's just not that strong. The menace ability only becomes good if you've got a LOT of creatures in the deck, and ideally big ones that will trade favorably when they do get double-blocked, so even if you decide to take this in a more tokeny direction he's not likely to be impressive.
Xenagos, the Reveler is nowhere near being a Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip or a Gaea's Cradle . Those are both lands, so they're harder to remove, and at least Growing Rites adds mana after a board wipe, plus can help you find creatures if you don't have any when you play it. And more to the point... are either Growing Rites or Gaea's Cradle good in your deck? If not, then he's not either. He makes 2/2s with haste. That's fine, but not strong. He makes a very small amount of mana. That's also fine, but not strong. His ult is nearly useless to you.
Compare Angrath and Xenagos to the other walkers you have that spit out creatures:
Vraska, Relic Seeker
makes a 2/2 as well, but hers has menace built in, and more importantly, her other two abilities are VERY strong.
Ugin, the Ineffable makes a 2/2 as well, but his effectively draws you a card when it dies, and his other ability is quite strong.
Liliana, Dreadhorde General makes a 2/2 as well, but hers also draws you a card when it dies, and she's got two more very powerful abilities.
Garruk Wildspeaker makes you a 3/3, and ramps you regardless of whether or not you've got a creature in play already.
Garruk, Apex Predator makes a 3/3 with deathtouch, and has two very relevant other abilities PLUS a player-killing ult.
Elspeth, Knight-Errant only makes a 1/1, but she ticks up while she does it, or can grant a powerful buff to a creature you already have, and her ult is game winning.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion only makes 1/1s, but makes three at a time, and can also board wipe.
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast only makes a 1/1, but if your opponent can't make you block with it his other ability makes it become free removal.
Saheeli, Sublime Artificer only makes a 1/1, but does it for free and as many times as you can cast noncreatures in a turn.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive
I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

For this one, I want to drop my amount of walkers to 30 (Because 25 seems too hard for me.)
Since everyone here apparently hates Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast , & even Rowan Kenrith (with even Saheeli, Sublime Artificer on the same chopping block that killed the former 2.), I actually had a backup plan in the form of Angrath, Captain of Chaos + Crawlspace to keep such creature tokens alive; just block w/ 2 of them, and...
So far, such good cards that were cut are Garruk Wildspeaker (Apparently, someone thought Untapping 2 Lands is meaningless. DX), Will Kenrith (I was running out of ideas from the start. He probably deserves the re-add.), Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor (Taxes those that target your Walkers? Makes Tokens? Loots? Why did I get rid of her?!), Liliana Vess (Uh, Ashiok, Dream Render exterminates all enemy Graves? Angrath, the Flame-Chained makes your opponents' discard & lose life? Do you think I can even make this Liliana a repeatable "Demonic Tutor"? If so...)
Another thing to note, I still need other ways to repeat walker casting via Blinking/Flickering, or something else entirely. I still have no ideas from others. Maybe you can help this time?
JSYK, I already have a cut in mind if I can't find an infinite for Sliver Queen + Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , & a possible third part of this combo. If this can't work for infinite mana; & from there, infinite Sliver Tokens, Yanggu gets Garruk's Axe.
Now, what to get to 30 Walkers? From there, I should be able to find good enough cuts outside of this...
Thanks for the help; if any... :)

@Mortiferus_Rosa: Obviously, the above post is targeted to you. I'm trying to cut all I can; but what's next?: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast , & Rowan, Hated by All ? Since I added Angrath, Captain of Chaos + Crawlspace , my tokens actually will be harder to kill because of this Angrath. At this point, 25 is all I can reach. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage 's Ult actually would help w/ Tamiyo, Collector of Tales , Nahiri, the Harbinger doesn't even need her Ult. to be good; eg Rummaging, & Exiling Spot Removal. Just Garruk Wildspeaker 's +1 (Notice the "+" as it actually increases loyalty.) allows Mana Advantage via Untapping Lands; or do you think Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner can do any better all at once? I just need more Repeatable ability uses; either Flicker based, or something else entirely; but I can't think of anything else...
Oddly enough, Karn, Creator of Argentum, (re)Named to Mirrodin by Memnarch & what's left of his memory via Memnites, (re-re)Named to New Phyrexia by 5 dumbass Praetors that need to end their hatred, even using 3, 4, & 5 Colors as allies. > Stony Silence ; & here's why. Karn #3 (Not counting Karn, Silver Golem .) can just use his +1, & you don't have to change your Artifacts to anything else. Effectively giving you a free 1 Loyalty Counter increase. (Deadliest Weapon? Grammar? something Zexion/Ienzo might use? Kei "Chaos" Asuma's Photomancy (Light Manipulation) Tome that can summon a Lizard-like creature of the same Void Base as the others of Under Night IN-BIRTH? NVM...)
Actually, now I think about it, Serra the Benevolent would be a Badass Oldwalker just having even one creature token in play; implying Sliver Queen again. I might need a good way for a "Jank" Infinite mana Combo with Yanggu #2; or does he deserve the chop?
All that said, I'll have to take matters to my own way for now. This'll be hard as hell for me to see what I can remove for walkers alone... Oh, & I used some nicknames as jokes. XP

Conjecture: Some walkers are awesome even w/o Ults. Nahiri, the Harbinger has Rummaging, & can exile stuff on the spot. Why Stony Silence ? That would actually encourage me to keep Garruk Wildspeaker in; besides, his first ability has lots of mana advantage. Tamiyo, Collector of Tales is pretty much Sigarda, Host of Herons in a Walker, but sure. I'll ditch the (Pay tribute to a dead walker) idea at least. I guess there are no good Gideons at all... Also, saying "No" to the new Saheeli is insane. Since you stated this deck doesn't have enough creatures, she is only made better as of this. But why Stony Silence over Karn, the Great Creator of Argentum? His First non-static ability allows you to target UP TO 1 Artifact to become a creature. You could get that loyalty for FREE if you wanted. All w/o needing to change anything. Sorry, but I dunno why Stony Silence over him.
Based on what you are assuming, though... these next cards would be what should be cut next:
Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter : He's only in there for my CMDR; which relies on infinite Combat phases, & Jiang only needs 5 mana to make this work. If I switched to Sliver Queen again, he's at least cut worthy, unless, I find an infinite loop for creation of her kin, & Yanggu #2's Static Ability. So he's not exactly out just yet.
Kaya, Bane of the Dead (& Kaya, Ghost Assassin too?): Just because something like her as a 6-drop should be cut is odd. This Kaya basically forces your opponents to use Shroud instead; & that's the only flaw I had w/ her. Even now though, Shroud is obsolete; in a game where Hexproof is superior, & no cards ever talk about Shroud ever again, a big drop like her, probably is for the best to keep. But Kaya #1? I already have way have ways enough to permit cutting her. That said, I still need more ways to use Flicker cards & effects in this deck. Venser, the Sojourner is affably bad here, & I still need alternatives besides Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Felidar Guardian … For now though, Kaya #1 will be cut.
Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner : It's not like I'll have a 4/4 being ready to be cast at any point. She does, however, untap target permanent. How should I use this feeble effect? Remember, I still have Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , & Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast (Shocked you stated to keep this one.); I have so many infinite combos here that I'd rather cut The Chain Veil because of this. How do I make them work?
I dunno about your opinion on all these, but that's what I got for now. I'll see if I can find anything else worth chopping...

Me again lol. I was looking at the selection of walkers. I noticed 2 things. With 11 creatures. You need 1 or 2 more walkers that put out blockers. Guys like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Garruk Wildspeaker , Sorin, Grim Nemesis fit the bill. You're also lacking walkers that put +1/+1 counters on creatures to have more to proliferate and make blockers bigger. Ajani Steadfast , Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , and Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter I personally like
