Garruk's Packleader Discussion

Last_Laugh on Animar

6 days ago

Ok the first thing Im noticing here is 34 non-creature spells. That's an absurdly high count for Animar and you want half that TOPS (I run 12 myself).

There should be 0 mana rocks (sol ring is debatable... I don't run it) and 0 Cultivate type cards here (Crop Rotation is ok if you have Gaea's Cradle tier lands to look up). Your mana fixing comes from mana dorks or creatures that search up lands, so just keep those and drop the rest. Vizier of the Menagerie should replace Chromatic Lantern. Also look into Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake (Palinchron too if you can afford it).

Doubling Season should be Hardened Scales... you can do a LOT with the 4 mana you save and the effect is relevant earlier here.

You also need some draw power. Primordial Sage, Garruk's Packleader, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, and Glimpse of Nature are all good options here.

I could go on still but I'm just posting a link to my list for ideas. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Last_Laugh on Temur Animar EDH

The first thing I'm noticing is 30 non creature spells in the deck. With Animar, you want about 15 TOPS (I run 12).

Your Signets, Cultivate etc. should be mana dorks. Anything from Birds of Paradise, Bloom Tender, Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Sylvan Caryatid, or Beastcaller Savant. There's loads more options but this covers some of the best options.

Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron are all disgusting here.

I'd also suggest more card draw. Consider Primordial Sage, Sylvan Library, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, Glimpse of Nature, and maybe Garruk's Packleader.

I'd suggest finding room for Heroic Intervention for boardwipe protection. Ancestral Statue goes infinite with Animar and enough mana or counters on Animar (return Ancestral Statue to your hand over and over with its' own ETB). Cloudstone Curio, Equilibrium, and/or Temur Sabertooth are all great options for abusing ETB's.

I could continue but I'm just posting a link to my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Institution4lized on Heaven & Earth- Shalai, Voice of Plenty

Since you mentioned needing draw, I can recommend all of these dumb things Green does:

-Shamanic Revelation, since you seem to have a lot of creatures. Collective Unconscious is a worse version of this.

-Evolutionary Leap, while technically not draw, makes it so your creatures can't be exiled and it basically draws you into something good (good insurance for wipes that Shalai doesn't protect against or for Shalai herself). Fecundity is in the same vein as this, but it's a symmetrical effect, so watch out.

-Garruk, Primal Hunter's draw cards ability really likes that you have big angels.

-Garruk's Packleader and its enchantment counterpart Elemental Bond also like that you have big angels.

I also second Greater Good for the same reason as Evolutionary Leap, and second Abundance. Abundance in particular is really dumb in my Tishana deck.

Last thing I'd suggest is Temur Sabertooth, but that's because I suggest him in basically any deck running green. Lets you reuse ETBs with cards like Eternal Witness and Luminate Primordial if you wind up running him. Also protects Shalai and basically says "**** the command tax."

Changed the mana expensive cards.

Took out one Thragtusk for a Trostani's Summoner, and substituted Soul of the Harvest with Garruk's Packleader, to draw cards on tokens.

Added the new Helm of the Host for extra creature copies and ETB, and took out Nissa's Renewal

Your curve as expected is super top heavy and you will usually be only be playing one threat a turn. Even though you are "Kaalia of the Vast-Ing" you may not want your top curve to swamp you. This was the challenge I Had with my old Jarad deck.

Being able to play a 2 drop and a 4 drop instead may be better than having 4 six drops in hand.

Answers to Board wipes I believe are a major concern for this deck. I would recommend Vexing Shusher for Heroic Intervention

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is not power 5 or greater, you could go for Spearbreaker Behemoth If you like board wipe resiliency.

Ramp package is great although Thunderherd Migration could be replaced with Harrow for Instant speed better fixing.

Explore could be the new Broken Bond from the new set. Even better It could be a Wayward Swordtooth. You could even consider a 37th land instead.

Where Ancients Tread for Warstorm Surge? Hits power 4 or less.

Garruk's Packleader can easily replaced with Elemental Bond to keep the curve down and start drawing cards sooner.

Additional Cards to consider.

Armada Wurm

Kalemne's Captain is Bonkers good hate.

Siege Behemoth for those pesky token blockers

Worldspine Wurm

Let me know if any of it was any help.

Sounds pretty neat, just looking at your setup I'm curious how consistently you can hit the required mana with your ramp by turn 5. Other than that, I would really recommend adding some more draw ability, you have some good card selection but you will probably run out of cards quickly if you want to run down your opponents. Rhystic Study or Mystic Remora can both work well, or even Garruk's Packleader or similar effects may be useful to you.

NV_1980 on Ruric Thar gives 0 f**ks

Hi,

Ruric is aswesome, but he becomes even more so if you add some creature-induced mana-generation to his deck. There are plenty of options for this; here are some of the ones I'm using:

Aside from these ramping options, there are some more draw options to consider like:

A great way to get some additional acceleration, is by using:

  • Lurking Predators; this makes your opponents very wary when it comes to spell-casting; every single thing they do might result in you being able to launch some free bomb-shells.
  • Primal Surge; not so much an accelerator as it is a game-finisher in your deck's case. Still, it gets your fantastic beasties out en mass, which is fun.

Last but not least, have you ever considered adding life-gain equipment artifacts to the deck? Attaching stuff like Basilisk Collar, Loxodon Warhammer or Batterskull to Ruric, will make it even more beneficial for you whenever an opponent casts a spell. Additionally, it will prevent you from being harmed by Ruric's damage-ability whenever you cast something non-creature like.

I hope some of this helps. If you feel inclined, I'd love to receive some of your feedback on one of my decks. So please, feel free to review one (or more) of them. Happy brewing and playing!

Regards,

NV_1980
