Ridgescale Tusker Discussion

Ridgescale Tusker is a very good option in place of Verdurous Gearhulk. I played against several GB counters decks that used the Tusker very effectively in place of the Gearhulk.

djnewellmit thank you for your suggestions!! I didn't know of that video but it is indeed very similar. A guy in the store plays it and I liked the synergy very much and I thought to make a more budget version since he runs Fatal Push, Walking Ballista and better lands. What is your opinion about Ridgescale Tusker as a budget version of Verdurous Gearhulk?

What is your opinion on Ridgescale Tusker as a budget version of Verdurous Gearhulk? Is it worth it? 2-3 copies. Great deck btw!!

Since you're running Deeproot Waters, wouldn't Ridgescale Tusker be better than Gearhulk in a lot of situations?

I dont really know, i have yet to playtest it.

Added a cheap option for Metallic Mimic on the sideboard since they are quite expensive: Ridgescale Tusker

You drop it and end the game basically

Hey, more Tempest Caller less Herald of Secret Streams and more Vineshaper Mystic less Ridgescale Tusker.

I suggest more Tempest over Herald because Tempest can swing the game in your favor just as well as Herald and doesn't require that you have +1/+1 counters on creatures. Both are being used for an alpha strike and Tempest gives you more opportunity to attack with more creatures safely. Tempest's ETB ability has to be countered or all opponent's creatures become tapped, can't block. Herald can just be killed during attack and then your creatures are very vulnerable to being blown out.

For instance in the Dino matchup Tempest can give you a large advantage because your opponent is not going to be able to counter Tempest's ETB. All Dinos including Carnage Tyrant since Tempest's ability doesn't target creatures only opponent will get tapped down. In contrast Lightning Strike,Savage Stomp or Abrade will kill Herald.

River Heralds' Boon is very good with Deeproot Champion, Kumena's Speaker and Shaper Apprentice.

I honestly think Verdurous Gearhulk is better than Ridgescale Tusker, one reason being that Tusker is a more of a win more card. The only way Tusker is better is if you already have a full board, in which case you are well on your way to winning, and the Gearhulk can already make most of your team unblockable (including itself, making it a 5/5). Also, if you rip Gearhulk off the top after one of the many boardwipes in standard, Gearhulk is a massive 8/8 trampler. Think about it this way: which card is more likely to help you win games?
