Gruul Guildgate Discussion

Stardragon on Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho it's off to a lawsuit I go!!!

3 weeks ago

Update 1

Took out Fiery Emancipation for God-Eternal Rhonas as it didn't help me do what i wanted and often time my me lose the game

Replaced Gruul Guildgate for Temple of Abandon for the extra value that the temples bring.

And took out one Ferocity of the Wilds for a second Beast Whisperer while i regret the damage loss the extra draw power should help the deck overall

Maybe add in the Naya Guild Gates for the versatility and because you also have Circuitous Route.

multimedia on Ghired: All Tokens Welcome!

3 months ago

Hey, nice budget version of Ghired.

Dolmen Gate and Mother of Runes were just reprinted in the Mystery Card Booster set. Gate is good with Ghired letting you safely attack with him to populate. As long as Ghired is attacking in combat any creature that blocks him will not do damage to him. Reconnaissance is the more expensive price card that also does this and it has the bonus of being able to untap your creatures to use them as blockers.

Mother of Runes can be repeatable protection for Ghired from targeted removal or in combat or make him unblockable. Gate and Mother could replace Colossal Majesty and Parhelion II.

Breath of Fury is a budget card that's deceptively powerful with tokens especially with Ghired. Fury is a infinite attack combo with Ghired and one Rhino token as long as Ghired is safe to attack and the Rhino token will do combat damage to a player. Enchant the Rhino token with Fury, attack with Ghired and Rhino. Enchanted Rhino does combat damage to a player, sac it and then enchant the newly created Rhino token. Untap your creatures and attack again. This is infinite attacks as long as Ghired can popluate the Rhino each attack. Fury could replace Soul Foundry.

When playing heavy green then take more advantage of green mana dorks. Mana dorks are some of the strongest cards in green. They're better in green for ramp than mana rocks and land ramp spells.

These mana dorks could replace Circuitous Route, Explosive Vegetation, Selesnya Guildgate, Gruul Guildgate. Eladamri's Call, Idyllic Tutor and Open the Armory are three budget tutors to consider adding. Each one gets a different card, but it's still helpful to have tutors. These tutors could replace Commander's Sphere, Selesnya Signet and Desolation Twin.

Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Fortified Village and Ash Barrens are budget lands to consider adding. They could replace Kazandu Refuge, Rugged Highlands, Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge.

Good luck with your deck.

Fallerup on Atraxa's Plague

you know atraxa doesn't have red right? why are you running all the red dual lands? get rid of Gruul Guildgate , Temple of Epiphany , Izzet Guildgate and replace them with basics or other dual lands that don't have red, you can get pretty cheap dual lands, also if you decide to replace all your guild gates, because honestly, lands that come into play tapped and have no benefit for doing so are bad, but I understand if you weant to keep it budget, but for now, remove all lands that have red in them, you don't need it.

Sedohr on Rioting against Humans

Sorry I haven't been updating this deck as much anymore, I've been focusing more on an aggressive Black/White deck with creatures that gain +1/+1 counters when gaining life and another black/white token deck for arena. I haven't put either up here yet since I have been working out the wrinkles, but will probably add the lifegain one soon as the winrate is becoming better with recent changes.

Domri's Ambush is really nice and I should add them to this deck. Not sure off the top what I'd replace, potentially the Barge In though. The extra +1/+1 counters are always nice, and since it just deals damage vs having creatures fight it makes sure my creature is healthy for the combat phase.

Gruul Spellbreaker looks to fit the deck theme very well while being strong too. It has Riot and is non human to stack with Grumgully, the Generous and Rhythm of the Wild . Having trample makes sure I'll be able to do player damage even if they use sacrificial defenders. The hexproof then helps make sure I can make my attacks on my turn without the opponent being able to directly target for control spells or debuffs. I'll probably replace this with some of my mentions in the previous comment. Such as taking out one Grumgully, the Generous , a Gruul Guildgate and/or a Mountain , a Jaya's Greeting , and a Domri, Anarch of Bolas

Yeah after the last update adding planeswalkers I removed 3 more creatures, and it does feel a little tight in play if I don't get enough momentum quickly or they clear the board. I might remove one of the Gruul Guildgate and/or a Mountain for another creature or 2 for starters. I was then considering dropping one Jaya's Greeting to bring it to 3x, and potentially one of the Domri, Anarch of Bolas for 2x total to replace with creatures. Lastly I was also considering removing a Grumgully, the Generous to bring the total to 3x and open up the deck for other creatures.

I was looking for creatures that can help with mana ramp since End-Raze Forerunners are my most expensive cards and can be a finisher for the game. For that I was browsing standard cards and found a few that might fit in.

Leafkin Druid Is nice since it's a 0/3 and has decent toughness if needed to block, and can tap for a green mana to help ramp up. Bonus if I somehow get 4+ creatures on the field it gives 2 green instead. This doesn't help if I need red mana, but most of the cards in the deck don't require more than 1 red mana anyways.

Paradise Druid allows me to pick either color instead of just green, and has 2 power if I wanted to use for attacking instead. The hexproof part would likely only affect it when I first drop before riot is in play since it would likely be tapped for mana or attacking after.

Incubation Druid seemed like a mix between the previous two mentioned. It allows to tap for any mana (That I can make already) but has no power and less defense when comparing to the previous ones. On the flip side if it has a +1/+1 counter it makes 3 mana when tapped. Since I have a few ways to get counters on creatures when playing them, I could potentially have that trigger somewhat reliably. It also has the ability to adapt for counters, and since I'm trying to lean more towards mana ramp I will likely be able to pay the 3GG cost reliably later in matches if I dropped it early before I could get Rhythm of the Wild or Grumgully, the Generous out.

District Guide Is a 2/2 creature that also lets me fetch a land/gate from deck to my hand. This helps fill up my creature slots, while also helping with mana ramp to later game to make sure I can drop my expensive cards. I've been using this in a few of my mana heavy decks in arena with success, so this might be one I pick since it fills two roles without sacrificing field presence (while the others previously mentioned would have to be tapped to get me mana ramp)

Rosethorn Acolyte Was one I considered. The adventure would let me get red mana if I somehow can't get mountains in my early game, and the creature itself would allow me to tap it for mana ramp. It's a 2/3 though so I feel more like it should be on the field attacking or defending instead, and I feel at 2G it's a bit pricey for what it does. That said because it is a 2/3 I could still use it for attack/defense and only use the mana ramp when I need it, but I feel there are better 3 cost cards.

So from playing in MTG arena it runs decently and if I get a good start with the cards for all parts of early, mid, and late game it runs real well. For example I'll be able to get 3 lands out on turn 2 by dropping a forest and Arboreal Grazer turn 1, then ideally a Gruul Guildgate or Rugged Highlands with the ability. Next turn I drop a mountain or forest and can drop Grumgully, the Generous or Rhythm of the Wild . Then turn 3 I drop another forest or mountain and can play Frenzied Arynx , with two sets of Riot or Riot plus a +1/+1. Then from there I just keep dropping land and planeswalkers as I can, and usually I am able to drop my Wrecking Beast and/or End-Raze Forerunners later to finish the game.

I've also noted Domri, Anarch of Bolas really really helps with early-mid game ramp+control. I'll have one or two creatures on the field but with his -2 ability to make creatures fight, I'm able to clear the field or keep the field equal between us while I continue to ramp up to late game.

I'm somewhat starting to feel the limits of Barge In too. As there will be times I have defenders and could successfully block without dying if I gave them the +2/+2, but since the spell only works on attackers I'm unable to do so. On the flip side though it does help me attack as expected. I've had some people try to sacrifice defenders mid game against my creatures without trample, and I can add this on after they already declared defenders. So basically it means I NEED to play aggressive where possible if I have them in my hand since I can't use them for defense. I might sideboard something else tough if I find I need to be on the defensive a lot more against a specific player in a tournament or bo3. This fits the theme of the deck though with riot allowing me to choose more aggression with Haste as needed early game, or use one of the riot stacks for haste late game.

In my arena deck I don't have Skarrgan Hellkite , so I just put in a 4th Frenzied Arynx and that has made sure I draw them more often. Something I 100% forgot though was that Grumgully, the Generous is a legendary creature. I've had a few games in Arena so far where I have two by mid game, and was worried I wouldn't have anything to drop when I emptied my hand out otherwise. Luckily (maybe?) so far they have targeted Grumgully, the Generous and killed him quickly. So in those cases I've been able to still play my other Grumgully, the Generous after the 1st is killed without waiting too long. With that though, I might look at removing one Grumgully, the Generous (to bring to a total of 3) to replace with the 4th Frenzied Arynx .
