Garruk's Packleader Discussion

SpartanCEL on FNM Temur Monsters/Midrange - Feedback wanted

1 week ago

Yea no problem MLPAshkore! I like the idea of a turn three 6 mana hasty dude because my old iteration of my temur deck turned 3 a Surrak Dragonclaw with 3 basic lands and Generator Servant once lol(once I get some more cards I want for Christmas I'll put it up on here eventually). While that is unlikely the thing I noticed while using Generator Servant is the tempo loss after. I played and swung with Surrak Dragonclaw and he removed it with a Abzan Charm later so I did get the 6 damage in but lossed tempo and his expensive abzan deck recked me. Anywho I learned to go hard or go home on strategies. By that I'd say run 4ofs of all the big guys you want to see, maybe Soul of Zendikar for that Garruk's Packleader. I'd elaborate on Rattleclaw Mystic but (I'm not positive how to make an url link in this but copy and paste should work haha) does a nice job and lists some big guys to think of

I would cut Lightning Bolt and Lightning Helix for other red burn that burns for higher amounts, such as Prophetic Bolt, Fated Conflagration, Burn Away, or even any Fireball variant. Most creatures played in EDH that aren't simple utility like Fauna Shaman or Skirsdag High Priest are bigger than 3 toughness, like Avenger of Zendikar, Rune-Scarred Demon, or even Garruk's Packleader. (It is worth mentioning that since this is a casual format, you should keep them if your metagame allows so). I would also add a few more Wrath of God effects since UWR (or Jeskai, if you prefer the name) doesn't like to trade one-for-one and doesn't stabilize well after a setback. Otherwise, nice deck! +1

I recommend adding a sideboard if you want to be more competitive. Against the counterspell deck(s) you can bring in a set of Skylashers or some of the other cards mentioned in the first post. You have a lot of mana guys here, but only 2 cards to ramp into. I'd pick one route and go for it, either ramp into huge guys or play lots of smaller-yet-efficient guys to swarm your opponent. If you go the swarm route, work towards eventually getting additional green creatures that grow such as Scavenging Ooze and Experiment One along with other efficient guys like Kalonian Tusker. Having a few Rancors in the deck would be like having a repeatable pump spell in case one your guys dies. Also I'd make sure to add a set of Vines of Vastwood to both protect and pump your guys at the same time.

If you decide you want to ramp into big things, then I'd add cards like Garruk's Horde, and Terra Stomper for your big guys (they're also very cheap to aquire), and finish the set of Llanowar Elves. Garruk's Packleader can give you some drawing power if you have lots of guys with power 3+ or if you want to stall to build up you can use Elvish Visionary to draw a card and block for a turn.

There are many ways to go with green, but hopefully I've helped out some.

Hey Everyone,

So I took this to my local FNM and I came 2nd :)

The only deck I lost against was playing against someone using a Red Deck Wins and he stomped me in 5 turns.

I have made some changes to my deck.

I've taken out Dictate of the Twin Gods I think I also took out 1 Garruk's Packleader and added in Hornet Nest which actually saved me and won me the final game. As I used it to block a 17/17 Hydra Broodmaster. I now have a Rattleclaw Mystic and 3 x Heir of the Wilds to add in. just not sure how or where to add these in too.

Spyderred on Vigorous (Suggestions Welcome)

So, a few suggestions:
Canopy Cover
Fierce Empath it will help you get the right cards in hand
Garruk's Packleader - lot's of big creatures and this guy in play = draw a lot of cards
Rampant Growth or Cultivate
Evolution Charm - it will give you a nice range of options, such as getting more land and having one of your hydras fly. just saying :P
Solidarity of Heroes

now, for the deck build, I would recommend:
First, I see your deck is 79 cards, so let's pass it through a "deck filter";
Kalonian Tusker great card, but you don't need it, focus on getting that vigor in play fast, get a count of 4, instead of 3, for the Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves;
also, Primeval Titan, I don't think you will be needing that if you get a Rampant Growth or Cultivate;
This is a monogreen deck, so I don't think you will be having mana problems with it, I suggest going down to 22 forests, instead of 24. With the elves and land grabbing cards you will have enough; Hydra Broodmaster is a nice big hydra, but personally, i think it's a slow hydra, so I would recommend one of there: Hooded Hydra; Mistcutter Hydra; Protean Hydra (this one a think is just a great and fun hydra to play).

Hope these suggestions help ;) remember to focus on a 60 card deck, cards you are in doubt, just throw them in your sideboard and playtest the deck to see how it works best ;)

twospires on Trading With Children, Adorably Awful.

I have a younger cousin who I have ripped off multiple times. Like the OP, I made sure he knew as much about the value of his cards as I did. They've gone like this:

First, I traded him a Llanowar Elves and a Doubling Chant for a Drowned Catacomb. That wasn't the big one, but OK.

Next, I traded him a couple of Garruk's Packleader and Chancellor of the Tangle for a Vexing Devil. I warned him over and over that this was a horrible trade and I was clocking in $8 over, but he didn't care.

Most lately, I made a mostly junk trade with him but his end included Stoke the Flames. I hadn't checked the price recently and guessed it was maybe a dollar. Later that day I looked it up and saw that it was $5.

He still good-naturedly kicks himself about the Vexing Devil trade and now I always keep him up-to-date on how much the unsleeved Goblin Rabblemaster in his Goblins deck is worth. One of the most frequent things I find coming out of my mouth is "Put a sleeve on that!" I felt that as long as we're on the same page about card value, it's cool to make an uneven trade. But thanks a lot, Death_The_Kid, because my conscience is going to kill me now.

True, I will probably have to find a different place for Lifeblood Hydra, like you said the x-cost guys don't really work with the shenanigans. maybe Regal Force or Garruk's Packleader could make due. Thanks LittleBlueHero

Still trying to find free space for the Eldrazi, so far I'm thinking Kozilek, Butcher of Truth>Krosan Cloudscraper, It That Betrays>Gruul Ragebeast, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre>Deus of Calamity. I really like Cloudscraper though, and Ragebeast can be some excellent boardwiping pre-combat, and that sets up a nice clean field with board advantage on your side. Ulvenwald Tracker is almost as effective, but not quite as good. His cmc makes him a little easier to play though, so more of a lock in the mainboard. Maybe Ragebeastsideboard, and he can move into mainboard against creature-heavy decks.
