Garruk's Horde Discussion

nice, my favorite archetype: mono-g ramp! First off, you need to shore up the ramp side of this deck.

Two cards, 4 words: Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl. The most powerful ramp combo in modern.

Next consider 3x of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Play some more devotion style creatures that smash face like Leatherback Baloth to help get it pumping quickly.

Add some Thragtusks to help with burn, it also fairs well against most removal too.

Craterhoof Behemoth is your best finisher. Consider big booty spells like Genesis Wave and Chord of Calling for when you get to massive amounts of mana.

Personally I would trim alot of the fat your deck has, for example Parallel Lives isnt as useful as stuff like Heroic Intervention for a deck that wants to play alot of creatures in a format with plentiful amounts of board wipes. I'd also cut stuff like Garruk's Horde that doesn't really hold alot of value in modern.

Lastly, I would add Garruk Wildspeaker because the card works amazing with your Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl and is just a solid card all around. 3/3s on command is also amazing.

Super excited for the Esper deck, but I'm not sure how much support the deck has. Without much support it'll probably feel a bit bad. Blue has Future Sight and Magus of the Future, but idk what else. "Top of deck matters" feels a lot more Simic than Esper because of Garruk's Horde, Mul Daya Channelers, Courser of Kruphix, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc.

Sylvan Primordial would be mean.

Vizier of the Menagerie is a faster version of Garruk's Horde, but maybe you prefer to stick with the 7/7

Sakura-Tribe Scout seems better than Rampant Growth.

Garruk's Horde was reprinted in the 2017 welcome pack, which is playable in Standard.

Quick question here, how is Garruk's Horde Standard legal at the moment? Am I missing something?

Garruk's Horde does exactly what you expect. Let us break it down by its rules text:

  1. Trample: Need more be said?

  2. Top card revealed: you flip over your top card so it is face up, and place it on top of your library for all to see.

  3. You can cast this, if a creature: this is the same as casting a card from your hand, albeit it would be from your library (sometimes this matters, such as with Phage the Untouchable).

The easiest way to think about it is you have another card in your hand, at the disadvantage of forewarning your enemy. Still, these effects tend to be quite powerful, justifying the downside.
