Garruk's Packleader Discussion

Besides flavor, Bow of Nylea ought to be included for the slew of effects it gives you. Blocking is now very undesirable for opponents, plus it shoots down smaller flying creature, and shuffles cards from your graveyard back into your library. Utility is everything in EDH.

Rishkar's Expertise is an insane EDH card that should be acquired while the price is still low. Draws you a crapton of cards, then you can play something from your hand with mana cost 5 or less, which potentially includes a card you just drew into.

Your list needs more mana dorks to get your bigger creatures out faster. I recommend Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves, but Arbor Elf and Fyndhorn Elves do the same thing.

Hydra Omnivore is a stellar card for when you're facing off multiple opponents; bully the player with the weakest board state to ensure everyone else will be clocking in 8 damage every swing.

Garruk's Packleader is a great way to keep your engine running, by maximizing off the creatures you're playing and drawing you into more big creatures.

Where's Acidic Slime? One of the best green cards in EDH for sure. Deathtouch + artifact/enchantment/LAND removal? Sign me up!

Genesis Hydra is a great two-for-one, lets you play something huge off the top of your deck when you've ramped enough, and sticks around as a pretty big creature.

Zendikar Resurgent is excellent for lategame gas, plus it makes your X-spell Hydras more insane.

MLD is great for aggro because it basically puts everybody else on pause while you attack them to death. Basically every deck that aims to win though combat damage should have it IMO.

That being said, why no Boom/Bust or Winter Orb? I don't really see what Wildfire or Destructive Force have going for them other than clearing out blockers, and in a creature based deck that usually means clearing out half of your own board too.

As for draw, I don't know PartyJ recommended cutting Regal Force and Shamanic Revelation. Those two, along with Collective Unconscious, are some of green's best tools for picking up large chunks of your deck. This deck isn't tokens though, so I'm not sure how much gas you were getting out of these. If you were drawing less than 6 cards on average than they're not worth it and you should go with power based draw. Rishkar's Expertise is a beautiful card, but there's also Soul's Majesty, Life's Legacy, and Momentous Fall. Also Abzan Beastmaster, Elemental Bond, and Garruk's Packleader are oft-overlooked gems for creature based decks.

Don't play Harmonize. It's like wonderbread. It's such a staple that everyone thinks of it, but there are tons of better options. Acidic Slime is the same way.

If you're at all into , Omnath, Locus of Rage can be built well for cheap. Many of the staples hover around $2.00 (Cultivate, Skyshroud Claim, et al.), but most are less than $1.00 (Goblin Bombardment, Where Ancients Tread, Stalking Vengeance, Elemental Bond, Garruk's Packleader).

I'd missed the token interaction. I'd typically prefer the deathtoucher, but cheating out a big thing early is definitely good. As for a big thing to cheat out, Zendikar Resurgent can act as somewhat of a wincon, in the same vane as Elemental Bond. It's advantage is of course the mana doubling, which is even better if you can get it out a few turns early and not have to worry about mana later. The problem with both is that the card draw is required, which could result in having to play out (and lose) games where you assemble the combo. Garruk's Packleader has the advantage that the draw is optional, so your mana isn't limited to the cards in your deck. It's big drawback is being a higher cost than Elemental Bond for the same effect, and being easier to kill.

Hope they continue to enjoy Magic!

EDH can be a little intense at first, because so many different cards come at you all at once.

Hunter's Prowess, Garruk's Packleader, Soul of the Harvest and Elemental Bond are all good sources of drawing cards.

Flameblast Dragon, Ulvenwald Tracker can be useful for turning creatures into removal.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Stalking Vengeance, Savage Ventmaw, Archetype of Endurance, and Rapacious One, all have either fun or useful abilities for the deck.

Overwhelming Stampede can be used as a nice finisher. Potentially Titanic Ultimatum too, if the deck can consistently cast it.

Happy gaming!

Keeping it under $15 should be really interesting, You should be fine with creatures but spells might cost you more.. I'm curious as to how functional it will become.

Here are a couple suggestions off the top of my head that should fit:

Naturalize, Naya Charm, Keeper of Progenitus, Terastodon, Fires of Yavimaya, Swiftfoot Boots, Drumhunter, Knotvine Mystic, Hull Breach, Garruk's Packleader, Gruul Ragebeast, Garruk's Companion, Behemoth Sledge, Hunted Dragon, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Dauntless Escort, Paleoloth, Baloth Woodcrasher, Destructive Revelry, Stalking Vengeance.

Ramping

Khalni Heart Expedition and play fetchlands or Evolving Wilds is an option.

Card draw

Garruk's Packleader is an option

Regal Force is an option and probably better due to your hornet queen
