Garruk's Companion Discussion

TristanTaylorsVoice on Green

@Chasmolinker Avatar of the Resolute is Garruk's Companion with more late game value. I think the third toughness on Kalonian Tusker to help evolve Experiment One's with Rancor and beat Dark Confidant/Snapcaster Mage is a little more valueable.

Nylea's Disciple is less versatile than Obstinate Baloth, and IMO less effective in the burn matchup, since Nylea's Disciple can be killed in response to its trigger for two less life, whereas Obstinate Baloth is beefier and can't be bolted.

Thank you for the suggestions

lukas96: he should be running both Avatar of the Resolute and Garruk's Companion.

definitely cut the Treetop Village, Field of Ruin, and Nephalia Academy. you want ONLY green mana that ALL comes into play untapped. none of these 3 lands help you play a turn 3 Leatherback Baloth. replace them with 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

if you decide to use Avatar of the Resolute you definitely want to add creatures that can generate their own counters like Scavenging Ooze. Burst of Strength is a good option imo that can also give you a surprise blocker when your opponent thinks they can get in an unblocked attack. Vines of Vastwood serves the same purpose as Blossoming Defense and having both available can really hose over any deck using a lot of targeted removal

Avatar of the Resolute is strictly better than Garruk's Companion you should swap them ;)

Cragon18 on Tuning my mono-green deck

I have been playing with this mono-green deck for a while and it has been doing surprisingly well. Aspect of Hydra is insane in this deck and a single unblocked creature can straight up kill your opponent. Rancor is either really good or really bad. Strangleroot Geist, Garruk's Companion and Leatherback Baloth are all great but can be hard to cast with my insistence on the colorless utility lands. Treetop Village has won games on its own and Ghalta, Primal Hunger has been hilarious against decks that don't run Path to Exile. The other cards have all been fine, except Nylea, which is likely coming out for sure. I think I'd rather run Rhonas the Indomitable if we're comparing God to God. Champion of Lambholt is a pet card of mine and has won a good chunk of games for me.

I'd really appreciate some feedback as the deck is missing something. Perhaps there are too many lands? I also could use some more trample creatures since I often find myself stonewalled by Lingering Souls when trying to eek out the last couple points of damage. Sideboard is also kind of medium. I put in a lot of artifact hate, but it's not as diverse as it needs to be in a metallic such as modern.

I appreciate all feedback and happy brewing!

Glad you like it. I've seen some other similar decks go your route too. Just wondering how do you plan to deal with flyers?

I was full bears before, but Garruk's Companion & Nest Invader just seemed better value for what I'm doing.

Yeah, I might've jumped the gun on Experiment One. It usually reaches its desired value by reaching 3/3 and regenerating once while looking for killing blow, but here it's not that easily achieved. With Garruk's Companion or Kalonian Tusker it would pull its weight, but that would make this a different deck entirely.

Aspect of Hydra paired with Groundbreaker is at minimum a "Giant Growth", but will more likely be bigger majority of the time. Playing the Groundsbreaker and buffing the Lone Wolf could result in a turn 4 lethal quite easily.
