Ghor-Clan Rampager Discussion
2 weeks ago
Well, about Looting... the big thing isn't even about snapping back cards, because Looting can flashback itself alone and I almost always use them all to exile into Hooting Mandrills. And, heck, a 4/4 trampling monkey on turn 2 is super zonkers.
But, then again, having 4 snappies makes the gameplay lot easier.
The Anger is like... a metagame trick. When I'm playing Anger, I take off the Delvers and put it into some sort of slow-tempo-control build. I'm looking for 1 Keranos, God of Storms too, but I'm off money right now.
Last, but not least, test some Ghor-Clan Rampager. For real. I mean, I don't recall casting it for it's actual creature value, but it interacts SO good with a temur shell. I tried B-Immense once, but I quite often ran out of graveyard for its delve cost, due to mankeys and snappies, so having the Rampager is really sick.
Keep it up! :D

The biggest tuning questing with these decks, to me anyway, is finding the correct balance of cantrips, removal, and countermagic. Again, Snapcaster Mage is a perfect card for these decks because it makes those decisions less punishing if they are slightly incorrect.
I'm curious about Anger of the Gods in the board. What are the matchups that you find it useful? Does it come in when you want to take the control posture against aggro/beatdown? How do you play around it with Delver and Snapcaster?

if you're going for pure aggro, i would highly recommend Geier Reach Bandit as one of your 3-drops, and probably Kruin Outlaw as well. cards with "bloodrush" such as Ghor-Clan Rampager can also be used to pump up your werewolves without "casting" anything. bloodrush is an activated ability, so using it does not count as casting a spell.

@Papo: The standard deck list is something like:
4x Wooded Foothills
2-4x Arid Mesa
2-4x Windswept Heath (bringing your total fetchland count to 10)
0-2x Copperline Gorge
1x Temple Garden
1x Sacred Foundry
2x Stomping Ground
0-1x Kessig Wolf Run
4x Burning-Tree Emissary
4x Experiment One
0-4x Flinthoof Boar
1-4x Ghor-Clan Rampager
4x Goblin Guide
4x Hidden Herbalists
4x Narnam Renegade
4x Reckless Bushwhacker
4x Wild Nacatl
For right now, I'd suggest trying the deck without Kird Ape or Wild Nacatl and dropping down to 18 lands. That should give you enough slots to fit everything in, playing a total of 32 creatures, 18 lands, and 10 other spells. When you get the budget, add in the full set of fetchlands, Wild Nacatl, and cut Manamorphose.
While playing straight Gruul on a budget, your lands will look something like:

Do you have a budget to get fetchlands? Wild Nacatl is really good in this deck, even if you're not playing any white cards. They trigger your Experiment Ones more consistently and create a faster clock. The only thing you need is around 8 fetchlands, a single Temple Garden, and a single Sacred Foundry.
I've found Goblin Bushwhacker to be kind of "meh" in this deck because it can be difficult to get the if you don't have a Manamorphose. Flinthoof Boar can be cast off of Burning-Tree Emissary and Hidden Herbalists, so I'd suggest that as the replacement.
I disagree with Vexing Devil. You don't have the slots. You're also a deck that can't really do much past turn 4 if you haven't won the game. Giving your opponent choices with Vexing Devil means they can pace their resources to prolong the game.
Lastly, the sideboard: Affinity is your worst matchup, by far. 4 Destructive Revelry is mandatory. You may even want to add in some Ancient Grudges (depending on your meta). These also do double duty against Tron and Infect (hits Inkmoth Nexus), your other terrible matchups. The rest of your sideboard can be land destruction, Blood Moons, uncounterable bullshit/control hate, and Scavenging Oozes. If you have the white for Wild Nacatl, Condemn, Stony Silence, and Path to Exile are also options.

Yeah after playtesting, I think it is super effective
