Garruk's Horde Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hello, multimedia. Thank you very much for you help!
Fauna Shaman & Gaea's Herald : I will definitely look for these cards, they would be a huge help. I would probably replace Weird Harvest, but I'm not sure with Autumn's Veil. I just wanted that extra coverage.
Fierce Empath : I took him out initially because I only had 1 creature with more than 6 cmc (Regal Force). I wanted to keep it pure tribal as possible, but I guess it may not work out... I'll try out Garruk's Horde (extra hand) , Thunderfoot Baloth (extra damage), & Lifeblood Hydra (extra draw/mana sink). On a side note: I've been thinking about using Nylea, God of the Hunt for her mana ability. What are your thoughts?
Lead the Stampede : I never thought about using this spell that way. It does seem like I would rather have creatures than lands later in the game. Maybe I will take that over Gift of the Gargantuan. I'm not so sure about taking out Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying, I need them to tutor Wirewood Lodge and/or Maze of Ith for faster infinite mana.
Harmonize : I had this card before, but I felt that it was too slow to include, and it could be countered easily if I didn't have Autumn's Veil, resulting in a waste of mana. However, I do have Momentous Fall, which is an instant, and since I may be including bigger creatures in my deck, I might have a better opportunity to use that draw power.
These suggestions are really wonderful, and it's giving me a much better idea in how I should form this deck. Thank you so much.

If you're afraid of counterspells I suggest Gaea's Herald.
If you're worried about game-ending ability you can adjust your use of Yeva to help with this. Her greatest strength as a Commander is not that she can flash in Elves which is very good, but it's that she can flash in any green creature. Using Elves to make a lot of mana and flashing in big creatures is the power she has. Creatures like Garruk's Horde, Thunderfoot Baloth, Lifeblood Hydra, Hornet Queen, Craterhoof Behemoth, Regal Force who you're already playing, etc. These creatures are not Elf tribal, but they can support Elves while also being finishers. You can use Elves like Fierce Empath or Fauna Shaman to tutor for and get these big creatures into your hand to be able to be able to flash them in.
You've done a really good job building the Elf creature core good card sense I would only add Empath and Fauna.
You can cut some of the lackluster spells such as Weird Harvest, Autumn's Veil, Gift of the Gargantuan, Crop Rotation, Sylvan Scrying for some of these big creatures. However, depending on your budget of course I would first add Fauna Shaman because she's really great with Yeva's flash ability being able to tutor for certain creatures who you can then flash into play, she's also an Elf.
Good luck with your deck.

Might I recommend Primal Surge? It guarantees an instant victory. Just keep putting permanents onto the battlefield until there is 1 card left in your library. Then, draw that card with Elvish Visionary.
However, that power comes at a price: There must be no other instants or sorceries in your deck. Here are recommended substitutions:

i quite like this, ever considered Scaled Behemoth it has hexproof in case any spells come its way. Garruk's Horde is also a fun one that could chain if you have multiple creatures at the top of your library. gets 1+ from me.

Cool idea. Garruk's Horde is another way to cast your top creature, and Call of the Wild lets you cheat out your top card for 2GG. If it's in your budget, Scroll Rack and Sylvan Library are excellent ways to dig and manipulate the top of your library.

Thanks for the tips. A couple cards you recommended is exactly what I am going for. I was seriously tempted to get Oracle of Mul Daya and I still may. The price is what was putting me off of it. As the deck evolves, I may sneak it in down the road. Garruk's Horde may be the cheap alternative I can go with for now.

Mana ramp can be important and you may find it works for you, but I find with Ruric, it's best to obsessively run as many creatures as possible. The trick is to find creatures that can do what you want your nonland cards to do - you have the right idea with the mana dorks and the magus, for instance. I'd try to push it, though, with things like Fierce Empath, Heartwood Storyteller and Krosan Tusker. Arashi, the Sky Asunder and Jiwari, the Earth Aflame are creatures that can be used as removal when needed. Tempting Licid and its brethren can be an aura without Ruric Thar blasting you.
The only noncreature, nonlands cards I'd run are things like Domri Rade or Call of the Wild. Once you have enough of a density of creatures, Garruk's Horde, Vizier of the Menagerie, Oracle of Mul Daya and Courser of Kruphix can provide great card advantage.
