Garruk's Packleader Discussion

Aggro-Blaster on OMNOM ANGRY!!! #ragequit

Hey man, I run my own Omnath and the deck has slowly become my most competitive build. If i could make some suggestions here they are:

First thing I want to say, cut the lands man. I cannot imagine having that many lands being useful. Sure you guarantee land drops but how many lands can you play a turn? One. Most of time they will be dead cards until your next turn. My build seems to strive with the count I have, which is 36. I know that is low but the deck is meant to ramp. Maybe do not drop to 36 but 38-40 should be fine.

Other things to cut:

Ondu Giant

Just to slow of ramp card. Sure it is a body but you can find cheaper bodies that do the same exact thing. I ran him in my build and often times I found him to be way to slow.

Quirion Trailblazer and Silverglade Elemental

Same reason as above. I've never played them though so I don't know if they truly are dead cards. Silverglade Elemental is an Elemental so he has that bonus, but he is only a 4/4 and you lack a a sufficient amount of sac outlets to make that relevant.

Now possible additions:

Goblin Bombardment

This is one of the best cards in the deck, in my opinion. Instant speed removal. Make a boat load of tokens, someone tries to kill Omnath and just sac all the tokens and omnath for four damage. This card has so many advantages in this deck.

Momentous Fall, Life's Legacy, Greater Good, Drumhunter, Garruk's Packleader, Kavu Lair, Fruit of the First Tree, and Elemental Bond

One of Red and Green's biggest weakness is the lack of card draw it has. These cards work so well with Omnath that you might think you have blue.

Rite of the Raging Storm

This card works so well with our commander and the cards in the deck. It makes an elemental, it has a power of 5, triggering things like Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread, and other people can use it to weaken our opponents.

Primal Growth, Nissa's Renewal, Skyshroud Claim, and Verdant Confluence

These ramp cards are just value. Between Skyshroud Claim and Primal Growth putting untap lands on the field, Verdant Confluence has so much utility, either being 3 lands or ramp and recursion, and Nissa's Renewal is just a decent amount of lands.

Good luck with your build. Hope you find Omnath as enjoyable as I do. If you want more ideas feel free to take a look at my deck, here is a link:

So, you have a lot of spells that buff your creatures. However, you don't have as many creatures as you probably want. Add more big creatures. In order for your pump spells to be more effective, you will need to make sure that your creatures are getting to the battlefield early. Your mana curve is good, and your land split is pretty good as well. Since you are playing green, you might want to get some creatures that produce mana and get large creatures that are hard to remove. Plated Crusher is a good budget beast and Elvish Mystic and Leaf Gilder can ramp pretty effectively. Also, one of the most important concepts in MTG is card draw. Drawing cards is the best thing that can happen most of the time, because it means you are ahead of your opponent in terms of tempo. Elvish Visionary is a good card for this, or Garruk's Packleader if you have big creatures. The Rot Shambler isn't great in this deck since your aren't controlling when your creatures are dying (sacrifice effects). Also, this deck isn't standard so you should probably take it out of the standard hub. Put it in Casual or Golgari (that's the green/black combo). If you want to continue with these colors, you might want to consider buying the cards for a Black/Green Elf deck. They are easy to use and can have some fun interactions between cards.

Soul of the Harvest,Garruk's Packleader and Elemental Bond are all great cards to draw in creature decks.

Bellowing Tanglewurm can be a big blowout with all these green creatures being run.

While Zendikar Resurgent is fun it seems like a "win-more" card, because by that point it should be unnecessary. How about Elemental Bond, Kavu Lair, or Garruk's Packleader for draw engines that can be cast early and take advantage of your fatties?

Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros, or Fires of Yavimaya to attack that turn in case a wipe hits before your next turn.

If you're already casting big guys, why not get more value off of them with Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread (or Pandemonium even)?

It's good to be both proactive an reactive in Commander I've found, even if other colors do it better than you. Krosan Grip, Beast Within, etc. would help you boss the board more. Depending on your meta (some) artifact/enchantment is never amiss.

I've always liked Radha but was never sure how to do her in Commander, this looks like a fun and straightforward way to go about it. Nice job!

First off thanks for all the suggestions masterosok and Chayor!

Archetype of Aggression, Berserker's Onslaught, Whisperwood Elemental, and Sight of the Scalelords all look fun. I'll see if I can procure them.

A friend actually just gave me a Decimate but I'm not sure what to cut for it. If you could give me your view on what should be cut (in general too) that'd be awesome.

I wanted a new Nissa soooooo bad but ended up drafting a Chandra the one Origins FNM I participated in. Love her but currently too rich for my blood.

I've seen Harmonize but I'd rather have repeatable draw that synergizes with my token generating theme, like Garruk's Packleader, which I'll hopefully add soon.

ZR was in here but I rarely saw it or played it when in hand bc I'd focus on ramping to Omnath ASAP. Might come back later as I slightly change my strategy with Omnath.

My playgroup has gotten used to my blitzkrieg of elemental fists so I think I'm going to shift my focus from more direct to passive damage to close out games. Drain the table with Purphoros, Warstorm Surge, etc. and finish through a repeatable sack outlet (or combat then sack). You're totally right masterosok about Goblin Bombardment so in it goes once I get one too.

Appreciate the feedback!

So, probably going to add the Signets, because they're great for ramp.

Illusionist's Bracers looks good.

Avenger of Zendikar also looks fun.

Maybe Pathbreaker Ibex over Overwhelming Stampede? Ibex is repeatable but has to wait a turn and may get killed.

Have a Boots already in, don't worry haha. Lightning Greaves is good though. I'll have to look and see if I still have the copy I remember.

Not sure about Heartstone because there are very few other creatures that it would help.

Now with the ramp cards, I probably need to keep in mind how many basics I have. So I don't think I can take too many basic land ramp spells.

Cultivate will probably get in over Kodama's Reach just because I have a Cultivate.

Boundless Realms may be a little to much.

Skyshroud Claim will most likely just replace Ranger's Path straight up.

I just remembered Veteran Explorer this morning, so that might just be better than Yavimaya Elder.

Explosive Vegetation seems fine.

Chaos Warp seems good.

Iffy on Champion's Helm. That's a lot of money for a card that's in most cases worse than Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves.

Eternal Witness is probably (somewhat) better than Regrowth, but I also have the Greenwarden of Murasa. So... maybe on E-Witness.

I feel like Elemental Bond or Garruk's Packleader may be better than Harmonize. Maybe both.

I figured they would be dead cards in the deck. I mentioned Garruk's Packleader as it is the better (imo) of the two cards. That's why I mentioned that I wouldn't recommend them for this deck. This deck doesn't create large creatures (except for the dragons) usually. You might get to draw a few cards off of them, but minimal card draw that's too conditional for a specific deck does not warrant a spot. I personally run Elemental Bond in my Zendikar's Awakening, Omnath, Locus of Rage deck since it pumps out creature consistently for the card draw, and I hadn't known about Garruk's Packleader at the time and have yet to grab one.
