Grunn, the Lonely King Discussion

I don't think rarity is really a factor. Plenty of the mythics are laughable.
As for specific ones Grunn, the Lonely King is very viable... My friend replaced his Zurgo Helmsmasher with it and I have to say it is scarier. Tuned right you will be lucky to survive 1 unblocked hit.

Heya! I like the deck idea overall, Temur is a great color combination, and Animar can be really explosive and fun.
You already have some cards here that have +1/+1 counter synergy - I would say go all out with this prong of your strategy.
Hardened Scales doubles the speed with which Animar builds counters, and helps all the other +1/+1 counter triggers get better.
Ridgescale Tusker enables your board by putting a +1/+1 on everything but himself, and accelerates Animar futher.
Shaman of the Great Hunt might be good for some mid-game card draw, and helps spread the +1/+1 counters around.
Creatures with Kickers and X in their CMC are also great choices, because they can really benefit from how big Animar's reduction can get. Some ideas are Grunn, the Lonely King, Altered Ego, Fungal Behemoth, and Verdeloth the Ancient.
Okay, one for the lulz as well. Big time synergy with Animar's Protection from Black coming from Singe. Problematic blocker in your way? NOT ANYMORE! Singe makes them Black until end of turn, so Animar can swing through for the win. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHhhhhh...

Grunn, the Lonely King, wants to join you really hard. Oh, the irony.

Skyshroud Claim isn't legal in standard, but you could run Grow from the Ashes instead. Blood Feud isn't legal either, but Ancient Animus or Prey Upon are good replacements for it. Lastly, Elvish Visionary isn't legal in standard and running a four of Hallar, the Firefletcher and Grunn, the Lonely King can be clunky sometimes.

Litdaze - I was thinking the same thing - but Dungrove Elder for Coiling Woodworm is far more expensive. The aim of this is to stay below a certain budget and that would tip it over. There's many cards that are better options than cards in here, it's just the element of $$ that decides it.
I'll definitely be building off this! I've got a mono-green that uses Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Voyaging Satyr and Copperhorn Scout for some crazy mana ramp. This is in combo with some other great mana-dorking including Karametra's Acolyte, then Rishkar, Peema Renegade with Wild Onslaught and Strength of the Pack to make sure all my creatures could tap for mana. I get to spend big for each main phase as copperhorn untaps everyone.
I leverage the +1/+1 counters with many creatures that give abilities to the rest, Armorcraft Judge builds off of this for card draw. For that I also have Regal Force, Mouth // Feed and Shamanic Revelation. Things grow very quickly.
I use Setessan Tactics is a great green "board wipe" with all the growing creatures I have out This is especially great if you have ways to untap your creatures again after with the extra +1/+1 they each get from this to either attack, or fight again... maybe a Vitalize and/or a Mobilize, though this could be a waste of card slots in commander format?
Looking forward to pulling that deck apart to build with my Ghalta!. I'll put my Bow of Nylea in for extra good times.... trample and death touch... mmmmmm... Maybe a Wasteland Viper as well for some sneakiness.
Thanks for the inspiration. I love the show by the way! I listen while I wash windows all the time. Keep 'em coming.

I'm happy to hear that you like my deck Goblinballer. Hadana's Climb sounds like a great addition but I think it won't help a lot. :/ Unfortunately Grunn, the Lonely King is too dependent on trample. Have you ever heard of the great saga of the Ornithopter and how he was able to stop Grunn, the Lonely King? What i've found out so far is that it oftens help if you add a third Forebear's Blade.

If I were you, I would take out Territorial Allosaurus, Grunn, the Lonely King, Marwyn, the Nurturer, Adventurous Impulse, Nature's Way, Rhonas's Last Stand, Cartouche of Strength, Song of Freyalise, Trial of Strength, Ambuscade, and Blackblade Reforged, and put in Rhonas's Monument, Merfolk Branchwalker, Jadelight Ranger, Blossoming Defense, and Verdurous Gearhulk, and add more Rhonas the Indomitable, Steel Leaf Champion, Greenbelt Rampager, and another Ghalta, Primal Hunger.
