Gruul Ragebeast Discussion
4 days ago
Izulde I run him because of what my playgroup plays most of the time, elves, zombies and such- small minions driving heavy combos, with the Gruul Ragebeast you can gain board presence and interrupt a combo by killing a piece (at instant speed with Marath, Will of the Wild elementals or Birthing Pod). And there's always purposely fighting the big things while you have Vigor out cuz that's fun.
But yeah if they suddenly started trying to stomp me with big things course i'd take it out :)

Cut 8 of your current 28 threats. Keep in mind if your entire hand is clogged with high drops, your deck is going to do a whole bunch of nothing. Also consider Worldly Tutor.I'd consider cutting Utvara Hellkite, Gruul Ragebeast, and Bane of Bala Ged right now as they seem to do the least for their high cost. I only count 14 sources of ramp (excluding Primal Surge, up the count to 20. use functional reprints like Cultivate, Harrow, and the like. you can go the mana doublers rout by having an enchantment subtheme using Sterling Grove, Zendikar Resurgent, Mana Reflection, and the like, and this can also support a card draw system which the deck lacks by using the enchantresseses to feed you cards. Selvala's Stampede is a perfect card for this deck. Cut Vandalblast as well and use permanent based artifact/enchantment removal like Reclamation Sage so Primal Surge hit's more targets.

I think the five power myriad guys, and Blade of Selves are important for making aggro work. Usually I wouldn't advise guys that just turn sideways, but being able to punch everybody at the same time is money. Add the synergies with things like Gruul Ragebeast (for the tokens) and all your etb abilities with the sword and it works out to be an awesome value engine.
At the least I'd take Mayael's Aria out for the sword. It's too slow for a minimal effect, the Lifegain is nice but you could use Windbrisk Raptor for larger chunks of Lifegain, or even Trostani, Selesnya's Voice but they don't fit the strategy as much.

Garruk's Horde is pretty great; since your decklist is so creature-heavy, you can just chain lots of valuable cards off the top of your deck. It's also a powerful 7/7 trampler, which is nice.
Apocalypse Hydra gives you a place to sink your gigantic mana pool, and then you can use it to wipe out swaths of token armies.
Genesis Hydra is another gigantic X creature that also gives you extra value.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn gives you the additional ramp you need in Gruul colors, and giving a big creature trample can be useful.
Signal the Clans is a superb Gruul EDH card; can't decide which of three epic creatures you want to tutor for? It doesn't matter!
Rubblehulk is an incredibly powerful pump tool that also doesn't count as a spell, so you can flip Ulrich at the end of the turn.
Clan Defiance is removal and direct damage rolled into a single spell; very powerful, shouldn't be overlooked.
Gruul Ragebeast is one of the best repeatable removal options you have in your colors.
Mage Slayer is a powerful equipment you can put on any gigantic creature for double direct value when attacking.
In general, any creatures with the bloodrush ability from Gatecrash and Dragon's Maze have great synergy with flipping your Commander; activated abilities don't cast as spells, but you're still getting pump and value.

Overall this is a pretty good deck!
I only have a few concerns you might want to consider:
- I do not see much value in adding Cloudshift as very few of your cards have ETB / LTB triggers.
- I'd swap out Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Archangel of Thune as these extra counters don't seem to give you much in here.
- I'd add in Ankle Shanker and Pathbreaker Ibex for a devastating boost on your attacks.
- I'd add ways to make the damage unblockable. Try War Cadence or Whispersilk Cloak
- Try + for an infinite attack combo.
- Gruul Ragebeast might help you clear the board a bit.
- Swap True Conviction for Concerted Effort (Way More for less).
Hope this helps you out.

Now I can't help you with Legacy, or Legacy tournaments, as neither are within my realm of knowledge, but you sound like you'd enjoy EDH. If you don't know, you pick a legendary creature as you 'Commander' and build a 99-card singleton deck within their colours, it's a format full of multiplayer politics, ramp, and bug creatures!
If you're interested there are more rules you can find
So a great commander could be Gahiji, Honored One, who encourages aggressive behavior and your opponent's to attack anyone else.
Some cool beast cards you don't have on the list are Canopy Crawler, Contested Cliffs, Ezuri's Predation, Fresh Meat, Garruk Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Godsire, Gruul Ragebeast, Gruul Keyrune, Naya Soulbeast,Rampaging Baloths, Ravenous Baloth, Soul of Zendikar, Spawning Grounds, Thresher Beast, and Wirewood Savage!!
Now I might not include all of these, as their mana cost can be quite high, and you can't always hit that Quicksilver Amulet, but EDH allows you to casually play a cool non-competitive tribe like Beasts with your friends and still had lots of fun.
