In Garruk's Wake Discussion


12 hours ago

In my meta, Toxic Deluge is a little better. It's not super creature heavy, so often times I can kill their dudes while leaving mine untouched. Also, it's just so cheap for a board-wipe. I recently cut Blasphemous Act in favor of In Garruk's Wake. There's an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice super friends deck in my meta, and I needed a silver bullet card. I also like the one-sided nature of In Garruk's Wake. I run so many mana rocks and ramp spells that 9 mana hard-cast really isn't that absurd. My list is still definitely a work in progress. He's still relatively new, and there are just so many hard decisions to make.

I personally prefer In Garruk's Wake to Plague Wind. Same cost, same effect, except Garruk kills the plainswalkers too.

That is the only change I'd make. I really like this - uses a lot of cards I used in my first commander deck based on Kresh the Bloodbraided

Welcome to my area of expertise. I love building decks nobody has ever thought up and using cards that are purely jank. I'll name a commander and then couple cards people have either forgot or think are useless and a general theme you could play (no pressure to play it that way).

  • Asmira, Holy Avenger: Hunting Grounds, Centaur Omenreader, Nacatl War-Pride. I'd try either a token based deck (Eldrazi Spawn/Scions) that powers itself off of sacrificing creatures (Birthing Pod and Ashnod's Altar) or a Cleric tribal with some recursion (Children of Korlis and Grave Sifter).

  • Atalya, Samite Master: Cleansing, Well of Lost Dreams, Celestial Dawn. You could play a stax and/or group slug deck, abusing your life gaining abilities (Heartstone, Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers) or a surprise fatty deck that drops a huge dude (Phyrexian Processor or Vengeful Archon) thanks to mana doublers (Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, and Caged Sun).

  • Axelrod Gunnarson: Kusari-Gama, Invasion Plans, Dolmen Gate. Axelrod would be your standard voltron deck, but to spice it up, why not make it so you do those "group hug" cards that give your opponents creatures (Varchild's War-Riders) and make them block so you end up doing damage and a In Garruk's Wake each combat? Don't forget some sort of deathtouch (Whip of Erebos.)

  • Ayumi, the Last Visitor: Cream of the Crop, Greater Good, Nantuko Mentor. Another deck where you would instantly think voltron, right? Maybe do an ETB deck focusing on your commander and her power (a surprising amount of cards that deal with power). Sac'ing it for whatever reason (Birthing Pod or Greater Good) and then recurring it somehow (Eternal Witness or Lifeline) to make some extremely unlikely combos.
  • And those are just the "A's" when I searched on gatherer for all legendary creatures. I could go on, but it's up to your creativity. If you like what I'm pitchin, feel free to either take one of these ideas or do some research of your own on a commander you might want to do something phunky with.

    Bou, all good ideas about board wipes haha. I play 1v1 more often than anything, so that's why I mainboarded Harsh Mercy- but in any larger game, I'd definitely trade it for Wrath of God or Day of Judgment--> You're so right about In Garruk's Wake, that would be nice haha

    filkinsmark, I find Nylea's CMC to be more than worth it, but I totally get you about keeping the curve low.. I've been cutting it since the beginning of this deck and am only now getting more comfortable with it. The mono-colored gods are definitely more difficult for devotion yeah, so you gotta make sure their effects are worth it even if they don't manage to materialize. I've been toying with the idea of adding Xenagos, God of Revels, but to be fair, my creatures don't need haste, and the + bonus would be wasted on them if they get chump blocked.. so I opted for more trample first. Domri Rade seems really interesting, I might add that. Probably will never survive long enough for the emblem though, but using the fight option with zurgo, iroas, or nylea would be pretty sweet, free removal.

    Just saw Harsh Mercy in one of your lists, and to be honest, it probably won't work if you play in a group of 3/4 people, but depends on their decks obviously. If I cast this in my group, with 4 players able to choose types, probably everything survives (e.g. human, beast, saproling* tokens). Would probably make space for Day of Judgment or Rout instead. Higher CMC, yes, but more value. Ideally In Garruk's Wake, but the CMC is way too high haha.

    Well, to be honest, from the looks of your deck now, I see more of a zombie tokens deck, splashed with removal. It's not a bad deck, actually. It's pretty fast, and can flood the board with 2/2s REAL quick. I feel like you could make a pretty good zombies deck. Blood Scrivener is a must if you're going to be emptying your hand relatively fast. So maybe 2 or 3 copies of him? Lifebane Zombie is good, but it fits better in the sideboard until you go against those green or white decks. Liliana's Reaver is a really good 4 drop, especially if your going for the zombie tokens. More copies of him would be good. Xathrid Necromancer is a really solid 3 drop. More copies of him. Keep maybe a 1 of Soul of Innistrad? A one of In Garruk's Wake. Then maybe a 3 of Ultimate Price and a 2 of Hero's Downfall? Use 2 copies of Empty the Pits. Then some reanimation spells like Ghoulcaller's Chant, Ritual of the Returned, and Fated Return. If you need any more help, just hit me up! I'm welcome to make suggestions.

    Looks pretty good, just have a few suggestions:

    Wraths/ Boardwipes: Generally speaking edh decks want a few ways to reset the board in case someone starts to get a bit out of control. Currently all you have for that is In Garruk's Wake which has a pretty high mana cost. A couple other ones you could look into are Crux of Fate, Nevinyrral's Disk, & Merciless Eviction.

    "Whenever a creature dies..": It's worth noting you have a lot of effects that casue something to happen when a creature your opponent controls dies. The wording for "dies" means it has to be put into a graveyard. If anafenza is out they dont hit the graveyard at all. This shuts downs most of your spells that allow you to draw cards.

    Here are a few other good cards that might have a home in your deck: Paradise Mantle, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Command Tower.

    Hope this helps!
