Gruul Ragebeast Discussion

mayael is so much fun! There are so many big creatures that she's easy toHere are some thoughts I've got for you.
Surrak, the Hunt Caller is a haste enabler at 5 power but only 4 mana. He's great to just cast, to get with Mayael, and gives haste!
Thorn Mammoth and Apex Altisaur are removal on a stick. Creature decks like Mayael love having creatures that also work like instants/sorceries. Almost strictly better than Territorial Allosaurus who can't trigger with Mayael's ability anyway. Definitely better than Gruul Ragebeast who forces even your mana dorks to fight, usually killing them.
Ilharg, the Raze-Boar does everything Mayael can't do, covering your largest weakness of not being able to cast cards from your hand!
Seedborn Muse is one of the best upgrades for your deck. Using Mayael on every turn? Sign me up!
Etali, Primal Storm solves any problems you have with card advantage. He wins games. Period.
Speaking of card advantage, Soul of the Harvest gets cards and has over 5 power.

Hey what do you think about Gruul Ragebeast now every of your landfalls gets 5 damage to a creature. Scapeshift is broken in this deck, it close up games especially when you have Where Ancients Tread on the field. Also you get a lot of triggers. Rite of the Raging Storm is a good and fun card in this deck. Feel free, maybe you can find some inspiration -> It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time (Omnath-Commander)

What do you think about Gruul Ragebeast ? Use the tokens to clean up your opponents creatures just with a land drop

Nice you picked a really cool general for your first EDH! Nice to see Gruul getting some love. You do have a lot of noncreature stuff though, which your general seems to hate.
You might swap some of those noncreature things out for some of these: Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , Krosan Restorer , Magus of the Candelabra (this guy is super good when your general is out, all your lands will effectively make 3 mana each!), Voyaging Satyr , Reclamation Sage , Genesis Hydra , Savageborn Hydra , Apocalypse Hydra , Garruk's Horde , Garruk's Packleader , Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Drumhunter , Artisan of Kozilek , Ulvenwald Tracker , Foe-Razer Regent , Gruul Ragebeast

Made some changes based on your suggestions, let me know what you think. Longish read condensed.
Argothian Wurm : Early game goodness, late game could slow us down facing certain decks that can abuse lands.
Naya's Charm: I have mixed feelings about. 3dmg to creature only feels like a waste. Returning a card from the yard could prove useful if commander tax adds up. Lastly and most used is clearing a path to swing. Should this slot be filled with a better removal spell, or is there worth I'm missing here?
Lurking Predators : Our new commander has a similar ability that's less annoying. Also its not a 'May' trigger so we could potentially be forced into casting our deck into a wipe.
Mayael's Aria : There's no other counter synergy in the deck, but bigger is always better. Surprise wincon? Slot in something better?
Garruk, Primal Hunter vs Vivien Reid : One or both? Garruk protects himself on the ground, draws cards, and makes a mess of Wurms. Vivian finds critters, destroys flyers (glaring weakness in the deck), and an emblem to boost our field. Both technically have the same turn clock to go off except Garruk can be used as a 5cmc one shot draw spell, whereas vivian can minus and have points remaining.
Something else I've been mulling over is what to replace these last 2/3 with... as they are no longer as useful, at least not all of them. Piper may have a use to stay being: a) it's a creature that can be egged, and b) with a haste enabler out it can be 5cmc for 2 creatures.
Belbe's Portal : 8cmc(5/t:3) investment for 1 creature limited to type.
Quicksilver Amulet : 8cmc (4/t:4) investment for 1 creature
Elvish Piper : still may have it's uses. 5cmc (4/t:1) investment, haste enabler preferred prior to casting.

Is Planebound Accomplice really worth it with only two walkers? Also, Storm Strike seems like it's just too low impact for EDH, especially considering it's anti-synergy with Nikya. Maybe cut them for Loaming Shaman for grave hate and Gruul Ragebeast for removal? Domri's Ambush might also be an upgrade to Savage Smash .

skoobysnackz - Thanks for the upvote, and for getting the reference.
TypicalTimmy, bushido_man96 & Poly_raptor - Thanks for the suggestions, I like them all, my wallet... not so much XD. That being said I'd like to keep it as budget as possible. It took me a long time to come to terms with adding Wurmcoil Engine because of the price tag... So the ones I'd like to see in the deck include: Mirror Entity , Nesting Dragon , Thornbite Staff , Birthing Boughs , Evolutionary Leap , Fanatical Devotion , Growing Ranks , Gruul Ragebeast , & Culling Dais . Ones I'm unsure of are: Second Harvest because I wonder if there'd be enough tokens to matter, Ashnod's Altar because not sure combo is something I want, Song of the Worldsoul because once we get eggs rolling we aren't exactly casting alot, & Helm of the Host for the investment. The others are pretty pricey or just seem off theme.
With all these new additions though comes subtractions... which I can never do easily so if anyone has any ideas in that department its appreciated.
Also... I'll likely be watching a Tremors marathon again now so... thanks for that. :P

Nice list! I love the wurms, reminds me of the film “Tremors”.
I built an Atla list fairly recently and can echo the above recommendation of Ashnod's Altar + Thornbite Staff - this paired with Purphoros, God of the Forge will win instantly. (I appreciate this if off wurm theme)
Gruul Ragebeast is also great because it’ll make all of your s fight everything and provides an immediate trigger for the eggs to die too.
I’d also recommend some top deck manipulation with cards like
I’d also recommend Greater Good as you could draw some massive amounts by saccing your wurms.
I’m terms of sac outlets I’d say go for the ones that don’t eat into your mana.
Allow you to do this for free.
