Garruk's Packleader Discussion

forevergreen on There are no direwolves south of the wall...

I'll second Dauntless Escort and also suggest Joraga Treespeaker since you have so many elves and she basically counts as a mono-green worn powerstone/sol ring. Since you're going hardcore with the wolf flavor, consider adding Alpha Status. Also, since you have so many tokens, another good way to make a bunch of extra mana is Earthcraft, or a little slower with Cryptolith Rite. You can't play Garruk Relentless  Flip in this deck because Garruk, the Veil-Cursed  Flip is black. Both faces of double-faced cards have to match your general's color identity. Also, I'd add a good green card draw package with Soul of the Harvest, Garruk's Packleader, and Shamanic Revelation. Packleader isn't a wolf, but the name is cool and flavorful. Also, maybe add Garruk, Caller of Beasts as he is really powerful and fun. Token decks should usually run Hour of Reckoning and Marshal's Anthem fits your anthem theme really well while also providing a key reanimation function. Lastly, Collective Blessing would further make your tokens huge.

Nylea -> Arlinn Kord  Flip - Still gives trample, but has more value
Regal Force -> Sin Prodder - way cheaper, more interesting, encourages decision making
Garruk's Packleader -> Tireless Tracker - nonthreatening card draw that will trigger every turn
Forest -> Ulvenwald Hydra

Highly Suggest Garruk's Packleader Soul of the Harvest and Drumhunter for card draw. Maybe take out some lands because you have all of the sorcery - land acquiring spells.

just acquired Eldrazi Monument, Exploration, Garruk's Packleader, Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Walking Atlas, Fastbond, Kodama's Reach, Budoka Gardener, and the most important Greater Good

Now the question is what do I pull in order to fit these in? Please let me know. thanks

I don't really get the restriction to 5CMC, because i can't see it actually doing anything to the format other than restricting bombs? That said, Bloodbraid Elf, Ascended Lawmage, and Invisible Stalker are probably the best generals in the format, with BBE and Stalker being banned in most groups. If you allow for commons as generals (my playgroup did) Orcish Lumberjack joins the top tier.

If you want a fun and powerful general that isn't necessarily top tier/banworthy, Nyx Weaver, Vampire Nighthawk, Nivix Cyclops (for 1v1 only really), or Maw of the Obzedat.

For something interesting that's not necessarily going to win you a lot of games, Springjack Shepherd, Garruk's Packleader(only because of the 5 mana restriction, without it it's a powerhouse), Azorius AEthermage, or basically any guildmage can be a good option.

You can also run basically anything with enough commons and an uncommon lord, or any available anthem effect, like the paragon cycle from m15 or Meadowboon, and run a tribal deck of whatever you want! (Stromkirk and drogskol captains are pretty good, from my understanding.)

  • Treetop Village (Never, ever use it for a man-land. It essentially acts as a tapped Forest.)
  • Hunter's Prowess (This card works great for card draw, but it either comes out as too much and I'm discarding because I spent 5 mana and have too little left to play out what I drew, or the extra damage doesn't do enough and I end up drawing only a couple. Hunter's Insight has been considered for a replacement, or Soul's Majesty.)
  • Cloudthresher (Reach is nice, and that he can kill flying token swarms at instant speed is also nice. However, I needed to cut a card somewhere, and I'd rather cut an almost entirely defensive measure.)
  • Kalonian Twingrove (This is two big beaters with nothing else to them.)
  • Courser of Kruphix (Worked well with Garruk's Packleader to get rid of blockers when playing lands, but ultimately wound up being worse than alternatives.)

Burgeoning has been suggested, and it is a good card for this type of deck. I think you should check out Exploration as well, it is well worth it. A Khalni Heart Expedition can be easily procc'd on the same turn it is played, netting you 2 more elementals (and lands) that turn.

Sporemound gives more tokens per land, but they are not strong or elementals. Perilous Forays, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Warstorm Surge still make use of them. (as well as Barrage of Expendables)

Walking Atlas is a great way to cheat extra lands into play. Azusa, Lost but Seeking seems worth the $30 to put into this deck. A great synergy card with any and all ramp you have would be Stone-Seeder Hierophant, allowing you to untap a land for each one that comes into play, this is a combo piece that will let you play your whole hand.

One of the coolest win-cons I can think of for this deck is Soulblast. After swinging, hit one opponent really really hard, and blast the others for damage with Omnath.

Now, if you want to play lands, you need to draw lands. You already have Elemental Bond, but you should look for Garruk's Packleader, Horn of Greed and possibly even Keen Sense and Snake Umbra to put on Omnath for bonus card draw.

Best of luck!
