Primal Surge Discussion

How about Primal Surge? Bit of a glass cannon approach but it's an awful lot of big guys with haste out of nowhere.

I have a Ruric Thar, the Unbowed's Primal Surge deck (original, I know :p)And when the primal surge resolves there are A LOT of etb effects on the stack. Normally I can manipulate these to be ordered in the way I so choose. Which is to make various damages occur first, which leaves a dead opponent(s). Do I have to finish the stack after everyone else is dead?It would take some serious finagling to work around the etb draws which would obviously be detrimental to the whole "winning the game" thing.
Thanks for the help.

Definitely like the concept. Might play less instant and sorceries so you optimize the Primal Surge

In my R/G ramp deck, I run a package with Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr, Magus of the Candelabra, Burning-Tree Emissary, Utopia Sprawl, Garruk Wildspeaker, Xenagos, the Reveler, Gruul Turf, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. While not super budget-friendly, I really think Nykthos is an invaluable addition to any ramp deck. I use the mana for Planar Portal into a single copy of Primal Surge, letting Cyclops of Eternal Fury, Siege Behemoth, and Pathbreaker Ibex finish the job, but the world is pretty much your oyster when you can produce dozens of mana every turn. I'd also recommend Fierce Empath as a means for finding your favorite fatties. I use him for 1 copy of Primeval Titan to find Nykthos or Kessig Wolf Run, 1 copy of Regal Force to restock my hand, and 1 copy of Greenwarden of Murasa if my portals get destroyed.

This deck was actually centered around Primal Surge in its previous revision. It's a really fun card, but the changes that need to be made to a deck to make it worthwhile hurt the performance significantly.
Many of the cards you've suggested carry not only a significantly higher CMC, they also come at the cost of interaction. For instance, changing Beast Within to Spine of Ish Sah comes at the cost of 4 more mana and the inability to react at instant speed. Green is easily the worst color for interaction, so taking any more of that away isn't viable in my opinion.
I am, however, trying to figure out where to put Paradox Engine and Vizier of the Menagerie, the former because it enables infinite mana combos in this deck and the latter because it gives card advantage.

Might I recommend Primal Surge? It guarantees an instant victory. Just keep putting permanents onto the battlefield until there is 1 card left in your library. Then, draw that card with Elvish Visionary.
However, that power comes at a price: There must be no other instants or sorceries in your deck. Here are recommended substitutions:

Serpent Generator seems pretty nifty, I dunno how I feel about the steep cost.. unless someone says whether it's a good inclusion or a bad inclusion. Honestly I don't like the fact it costs 10 man and to play and activate, at that rate I'd rather use Primal Surge.
Thanks for the suggestions!
