Gruul Ragebeast Discussion
1 week ago
Hi GoldenDiggle (nice alias!),
Thanks for the suggestions. Avenger of Zendikar was actually in this deck at some point, when it was still more of a token-generating deck. Some of the token generators of that period are still in here, but I decided to remove most of them. Mostly, because I don't like using tokens unless they're either strong by themselves OR I include cards to make them strong. That last bit was detrimental to my deck's overall strategy as I had to make room for buffs by removing strong creatures; giving Mayael less of a creature pool to work with.
Gruul Ragebeast is a great idea; it adds some more control to the deck. I'll have a look at which other creature should make room for it (it'll be a hard decision).
Giant Adephage is great too except for one minor detail; I have to damage an opponent in order to generate a copy. There are several scenario's imaginable in which this isn't much of an issue, but still I prefer cards like Godsire and Utvara Hellkite which both don't have that restriction. Still, I'll give this card some more thought.
Again, thanks a lot!

Some cards that I specifically like in Mayael are Avenger of Zendikar and Gruul Ragebeast! Avenger spits out tokens real easy, and the Ragebeast gives a great form of removal in the right circumstances.
Giant Adephage is also really great, especially when combined with the Ragebeast!

Hey there! This looks like a really sweet deck! If you're focusing on Dragons, I would recommend adding in some copies of Dragonlord's Servant and Dragon Tempest; they're a couple of cards that often get overlooked in Dragon decks. If you're looking for cuts, I'd recommend starting with Gruul Ragebeast, Inferno Titan, and possibly Atarka, World Render. Also, just so you know, See the Unwritten is probably better than Summoning Trap unless you're playing in a meta with a bunch of counter-heavy decks. In any case, have fun!

Balefire Dragon, Woodfall Primus, Gruul Ragebeast are all good toolbox options. I also like Blightsteel Colossus and Xenagos, God of Revels together. You could Tooth and Nail for them and generally get a kill from it.

Oh yeah real close! I think chaos warp and Krosan grip are a great start. I might add in at least 2 more removal spells as well operating under the "you need 8-12 removal spells in your Commander deck plan from mtggoldfish. I count 4 ish so far? Beast Within, acidic slime, Song of the Dryads, and then warstorm surge stranglehold and omnath are exactly complete removal spells but they count for something. Other options include Duplicant, Lignify, Ambush Viper, Gruul Ragebeast, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, Ezuri's Predation, Berserk. Pick your two to 4 favorite poisons. Or actually your opponents poisons.

Looks like a fun variation on a totally busted commander :) Got a few ideas.. I'm surprised you didn't include Rosheen Meanderer over something like Cultivate just because its a creature that can pump Animar. Not sure if you know about how Ancestral Statue goes infinite with Animar by self bouncing, that seems like an easy include. Vizier of the Menagerie should be amazing in this deck with so many creatures to cast off the top. Primal Vigor has potential to make your hydras much more formidable. Gruul Ragebeast could be great too. Colorless cards like Sandstone Oracle, Duplicant, and Artisan of Kozilek are in most Animar builds too. Happy Gathering!

I've been playing solely Mayael for a couple years now and Gruul Ragebeast is arguably the best card in my deck. With how removal light Mayael tends to be, he works great as your creatures will almost always be bigger. I've also had great success with Guild Feud on the same logic. I also prefer Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger over the old one as he serves as an alternate win condition in the face of ridiculously high life totals and Sigarda.
