Garruk's Packleader Discussion

NINJAxPENGUIN92 on Omnath, Locus of Creature Ramp

6 days ago

I probably wouldn't worry about Tornado Elemental or Ulvenwald Observer Garruk's Packleader would put more work in and not force you to draw. The "may" is always nice. Sandsteppe Mastodon can probably go for something. I'd put one of the global tramples in over Sword of Kaldra. Plummet doesn't seem as useful as some of your options, and you've got a decent number of other things to protect against flying, so maybe that. Rampaging Baloths's spot might also be better used for a global trample, but I've never run him, so I don't know. I've never thought Joraga Treespeaker did enough for what it does (unless in a strict elf deck of course). If Outland Colossus had trample stapled, I wouldn't suggest him, but he doesn't, so he might be another option for more global trample. same goes with is Seed Guardian's token also had reach.

Those are my thoughts. Hope they help! :)

Even more cards! Just for more unntapping goodness there's Ornamental Courage, Bear Umbra, Burst of Strength (is just Dark Ritual or better with Selvala), Copperhorn Scout, Voyaging Satyr, Elder Druid, so many.

More draw power! Triumph of Ferocity, Harmonize, Garruk's Packleader, Masked Admirers, Elvish Visionary, Soul's Majesty. Maybe add Words of Wilding, Thought Vessel, Reliquary Tower, Elixir of Immortality or similar cards so you don't draw your library. I suppose an Eldrazi Titan would also be good if you draw too much and a good mana dump, I'm just reluctant to suggest running Eldrazi. Speaking of hated things in EDH, Tooth and Nail isn't broken if you don't just do a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Pestermite esque combo. Oh yeah, Chord of Calling, Summoner's Pact, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker and similar cards are useful.

Triton on Omnathian Combo Ramp on a Budget!

This list looks really good! Here are some suggestions to consider:

Also Life and Limb + Sporemound is infinite landfall triggers. However, it is quite hard to pull off without a means of tutoring for Life and Limb.

Hope these suggestions help!

Keen Sense is cheaper than Snake Umbra. Mask of Memory would stick around longer than either (should a dude die) and you can use something like Creeping Renaissance to get all the discarded cards back (if that's a concern).

Elder Pine of Jukai could be interesting if you had more spirits or arcane spells (looks like you have 3 total so probably not a great fit). There could be some other spirits or arcane spells worth swapping in...a couple that seem kinda cool or would otherwise fit your theme: Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Carven Caryatid, Eidolon of Blossoms, Forked-Branch Garami, Haru-Onna, Iname, Life Aspect, Nourishing Shoal, Permeating Mass, Primordial Sage, Rending Vines, Strength of Cedars, Wear Away. Not trying to change up the vibe, just saying...

Other straight up draw cards to consider: Abundant Growth, Elemental Bond, Fecundity, Fa'adiyah Seer, Fruit of the First Tree, Garruk's Packleader, Glimpse of Nature, Hunter's Insight, Hunter's Prowess, Kavu Lair, Krosan Tusker (just to cycle it), Life's Legacy, Nature's Resurgence, Nissa's Revelation, Ohran Viper, Sylvan Library, Zendikar Resurgent.

Viridian Revel could be interesting given you seem to like artifact hate. And then there are all the Enchantresses, if you want to start loading up on enchantments, e.g. Verduran Enchantress. I think there are 4-5 available, which could become some serious card draw off simple cantrips like Abundant Growth.

This looks like a fun deck...might try my hand at a build if I have enough of the cards ;-)

ScrOuch on The Beauty and her Beasts

Some more great suggestions, thanks!

@GoldenDiggle: Doubling Cube is definitely awesome! Don't know why I overlooked that 'til now. This is definitely a great pump! To your other suggestions: Predatory Hunger is not bad but only limited to one creature and thus easily removable (through creature removal). Thus I would leave it out for now. I already thought about putting in Garruk's Packleader or Soul of the Harvest and came to the conclusion that I rather wanna have some creatures with which pose a bigger threat to the opponent. Also, I already have good card advantage with Garruk's Horde, Greater Good, Wild Pair, Zendikar Resurgent, Elemental Bond, Sylvan Library, Selvala herself and some more. I also agree with you, that untapping Selvala should have a high priority to use her ability as often as possible! Therefor, I already included cards like Staff of Domination or Umbral Mantle which are able to grant infinite untapping if the creatures are strong enough. Most of your suggestions sadly have quite harsh limitations, however, I really like Instill Energy for its low cost and free untap. Thought about that card a while but couldn't find the right card to swap for. Any suggestions? Anyway, thank you very much for your extensive comment!

@bomb_arie: Very nice idea! Haven't thought about that before. Especially Erratic Portal seems very useful since it's not only a re-use option but also protection, removal and also grants on-cast-triggers once more without harsh restrictions! But I still have to figure out which cards would be a good choice to swap for it. Any ideas?

@skyburial: Didn't see Panharmonicon 'til now! Man, that's really a bomb, as you said. Already put it in and mentioned you in the KLD-update. Thanks! I'd also love to put Doubling Season in here but it exceeds my budget. If I could, it would already boost my hydras like hell. As long as I don't have it, Primal Vigor has to fill in for it, although I know it has some risks. Forgotten Ancient was in this deck before but it wasn't as useful. Maybe it will come back again, but for now it keeps being sidelined.

Green at it's finest. Stompy and out of control!

Good fatties, good access to trample, good ramp + mana doublers (Doubling Cube?), pretty good draw, lots of counters but no counter doublers?

Predatory Hunger is really good flavor-wise for hydras, plus the counters it gives is bonkers.

I noticed you have Elemental Bond, but no Garruk's Packleader or Soul of the Harvest? They are worthwhile, just to spit more creatures out.

Cards like Emerald Charm and Burst of Strength let the lovely lady untap once so she can do her thing once again, but its not enough to untap once. You need MORE!!! Instill Energy, a Magewright's Stone, Malachite Talisman, Nature's Chosen, Quirion Ranger, Puppet Strings, Seeker of Skybreak, and Wirewood Symbiote. With this, and MAXIMUM MANA, what stands in your way? Seriously.

Check yourself before you deck yourself, and remember... always vote.. FREEEEEE!!!!

You should check out Garruk's Packleader and Greater Good, extra draw.

Rite of the Raging Storm gives you an elemental each turn that also dies for a Lightning Bolt. It also gives your enemies beatsticks that they will kill eachother with. Tempt with Vengeance works similarly, but needs a sac outlet to really do the full damage. (Speaking of sac outlets, Evolutionary Leap is amazing in green tokens.)

Obviously cards like Burgeoning, Exploration, Oracle of Mul Daya, and the famous Azusa, Lost but Seeking are good but expensive! Good alternatives would be Walking Atlas, Gaea's Touch, and Courser of Kruphix. I also noticed you didn't have Farseek in your ramp.

Since you are running hard ramp, I highly suggest Stone-Seeder Hierophant. She is crazy, and can ramp really hard when lands enter (tap your land before you play one), similar to Lotus Cobra.
