Garruk's Horde Discussion
1 day ago
There are not nearly enough draw engines, too many trample enablers. Arlinn Kord Flip is strong, but unnecessary. Her +1/+1 trample anthem takes two turns to go off and the rest of her abilities (aside from her ult) have zero synergy. Gruul War Chant is less expensive and gives a better pay off immediately. You don't need a trample static buff, when everyone already has trample. Hazoret's Monument gives a reduction in CMC for cast spells, but the discard/draw effect is a gamble and unnecessary compared to a simple draw engine, which actually gives you card advantage (i.e. Soul of the Harvest). Tana, the Bloodsower may have trample, but at 4 CMC for a 4/4 (post swing) is not really that much kick. Something Faster could be put in it's place. Mina and Denn, Wildborn is just a 4 cost Azusa, Lost but Seeking, and the trample effect is redundant. For 7 CMC Pelakka Wurm is weak in value, compared to other high CMC cards that could be ran. Fanatic of Xenagos is cheap, but aside from being a fatty (with or without haste) it's kind of a one note card, there's already enough big creatures on the field, he doesnt bring anything to the table aside from strength. Skarrg Guildmage is redundant as is Khenra Charioteer. Atarka, World Render is not worth the seven, sure she hit's hard but is not as strong as double damage cards that buff ALL your creatures. Deus of Calamity has to be blocked by a creature with 2 or less toughness, otherwise he's not doing anything. Ghor-Clan Rampager is just a titanic growth. Slith Predator is boring, a +1/+1 counter is not much. There is not nearly enough draw in here, too many trample enablers, too few value cards, not enough bombs. Why have so much ramp, when there is too little draw, and not enough high CMC value cards? You removed gold cards from my schematics like Genesis Wave, Rage Reflection, Insult, Gruul War Chant, Elemental Bond, Soul of the Harvest, Rapacious One, Moldgraf Monstrosity, Lurking Predators, Garruk's Horde, Hunter's Prowess, Veilstone Amulet, and Harvest Season. The utter lack of value, draw power, and game ending cards is my only skepticism. That being said, I think Gruul Keyrune, One with Nature, Destructive Urge, and Hellkite Tyrant would be great additions. Also, why 37 lands?

As you said before you really don't need all these creatures, but from my own experience I understand it can be kind of tough to find noncreature spells.
Other suggestions would be more ramp(was said before) and I think Garruk's Horde would be sweet.

What's very easy to obtain are Woodland Streams at about <0.01$ a piece. Since your deck doesn't have any one-drops, your first turn is always doing nothing. Now, with Woodland Stream you can get both colors and still keep your pace.
Also, if it's not too much for you, Deeproot Elite seems pretty strong in this deck b/c a lot of your creatures are Merfolk. If you can't obtain them thats ok, b/c Merfolk Mistbinder can also serve in it's place.
Riddleform doesn't seem too strong in this build. All of your spells are either sorcery-speed targeting your own guys, which you can't do with Riddleform, or Instants that are made to be cast on your opponents turn and not your own. I would probably replace it with either Silvergill Adept if you're going towards Merfolk or maybe Treasure Map Flip.
Take out Garruk's Horde. There are much better replacements for it such as Scaled Behemoth or another Arborback Stomper. 7 mana is just too much for something that gets targeted by all control-like removal (Vraska's Contempt, Cast Out, etc,)
Other than that, good luck on this budget deck! My brother always says to me: "Make a deck that you can be proud of, not a super-budget deck that MIGHT go 3-1" and I respond with "You just don't get it do you. Money doesn't grow on trees or bushes!"
I am a big fan of budget decks!

This is great. This roars 'greeeeeeeeeen' from every single card. I like it a lot. I do have some suggestions you might like to consider:
Scute Mob helps you cast Ghalta. And it does even better if games go longer. Root Elemental and Myojin of Life's Web are pretty similar, but both very powerful here. Considering your amount of token generation, Stag Beetle might be interesting for you as well. Also, how about Ulvenwald Observer and Soul of the Harvest? Also, Thicket Elemental, Garruk's Horde, Mouth / Feed and Cream of the Crop all seem like they could do a good job here. Oh, and then, there is Zendikar Resurgent.

@Thorbogl thanks for your comment!
I do own one copy of Snapcaster Mage but it currently resides in another deck. I would be stoked to eventually pick up a second to drop in this list ;)
In the beginning I was considering going the reveal-my-topdeck route with cards like Oracle of Mul Daya, Future Sight, Courser of Kruphix, and maybe even Garruk's Horde. I kind of like to keep my opponents guessing so I decided against the idea. Oracle of Mul Daya is really freakin' good and my friends have suggested it as well. I'm hoping I have enough top deck manipulation with Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile to make rashmi run smoothly. I do run Vizier of the Menagerie in my animar deck which is almost 50% creatures haha
