Ghalta, Primal Hunger occurrence in decks from the last year

Ghalta, Primal Hunger Discussion

Flodoo on Flavio first deck

Your deck looks great for the first try.

I was suggested your deck under my favorite deck, which uses the same commander. Had Ghalta, Primal Hungeras Commander first, but then switched to Nylea, Keen-Eyed because Ghalta was to OP ;-) Also had Nylea, God of the Hunt like you, but i don't need "Other creatures you control have trample."

What do you want to do with your deck, I did not realize.

You have some mechanics:


+1/+1 counter


If all goes well your deck is strong, but what do you do when you play against a deck that destroys/enchants the 2-3 key cards? I would add the:

Nature's Spiral

Once and Future

And remove:

Defend the Hearth

Hunter's Ambush

You say you've been playing for only a month? Makes me wonder how you got such a strong deck together, respectfully.

What helped me a lot was to make the listing personal.

shwanerz88 on Wait wait wrong egg WRONG EGG | **Primer**

Very Nice list, I've always though an Egg build would be a lot of fun. Thornbite Staff is a great include as it can chain you multiple egg triggers plus she's a shaman. Irregular Cohort will give you 2 eggs also look into other changlings. I would cut some of your non creature permeants, you don't really need bag of holding since your Commander is pseudo card draw, I would also cut the Sentinel totem, Cathartic reunion, pyroblast, once and future just because all these cards while fine cards are relatively weak in EDH. You honestly I think just need more creatures in general, Quartzwood Crasher, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Mirror Entity, Taurean Mauler, Sun Titan, and Regisaur Alpha would all be relatively cheap upgrades.

Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty: Timmy version of Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Averna, the Chaos Bloom approves. X-spells and self-discounting stuff like Ghalta, Primal Hunger helps abuse things. Note that it's not just from your hand so if you cascade into a CMC 6+ spell you get another cascade!

DianTherra on Does casting cost affect turning …

What happens to the cost of turning a Manifest face-up if you've got something affecting the casting cost of creatures?
(The way I understand it, they are one and the same)
And for a specific case, let's assume I have 10 power on the board, including my manifested Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Does it now only cost GG to turn her face-up?

Sultai_Sir on Ghalta, Primal Hunger: TYRANNOSAURS IN F-14s!!

1 month ago

I'm glad you like the deck, GalaxyCat! Ghalta, Primal Hunger is super underrated. It's a two mana 12/12, and easily abused by cards like Greater Good and Grafted Exoskeleton. And it's budget!

Coward_Token on Alena & Thrasios | Openers of the void

red Akroma isn't much better IMO

I'd overall suggest cutting it and maybe some of the other non-potentially-cheap fatties for more of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and friends.
