Circle of Flame- Cindervines

Upwelling-Ruric Thar, the Unbowed

Guttersnipe-Setessan Champion

Frilled Deathspitter-Eidolon of Blossoms

Underworld Dreams-Read the Bones (3 black pips is a LOT)

Blazing Volley- Electrickery

These cards should help with your draw. Also, some of the cards i took out have little impact on the game.

I have fun with Collector Ouphe in my Primal Surge - Ruric Thar, the Unbowed deck. I can get behind adding the card. Just need to find a cut for it. I'm still okay with Mina and Denn, Wildborn being that card.

That said, raw power isn't always what you want or even necessarily more fun. For instance, the building decisions from Grand Warlord Radha's mana ability are really fun to play around with and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed's and Nikya of the Old Ways's restrictions make for fun playlines and deck-building.

Gishath, Sun's Avatar definitely qualifies as stompy. Mayael the Anima can be fun for the guessing game, Gahiji, Honored One has the politics angle. Atla Palani, Nest Tender is a house. Marisi, Breaker of the Coil is also great at building stompy, with the added political edge to make games more interactive.

Lots of excellent choices.

Oh, and another vote for Animar, Soul of Elements for raw power. Homeboy is a BEAST

As a librarian, I would recommend Ruric Thar, the Unbowed maybe start out trying some picture books or Graphic novels depending on his reading level. Having some art to help him through the story may be just the change he needs to truly embrace reading.

It's a hard decision Ruric Thar, the Unbowed & Grumgully, the Generous have almost the same powerlevel. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is insanely good in cEDH because he's punishing all the combo, control and stax players for playing noncreature spells. In casual games with a lot more creature based strategies, Ruric isn't that insanely strong anymore (still very good).

Grumgully, the Generous instead is totally underrated and a combopiece for 3 mana in the commandzone. It doesn't matter if you play against a creature based strategy. Like every Gruul deck he's often ridiculed and underestimated at cEDH tables although it is a quick, fun and proactive toolboxy combo deck.

Omnath, Locus of Zendikar 3 W U B R G

Legendary Creature - Elemental Avatar

Elementals you control have First Strike, Flying, Menace, Trample, and Vigilance.

Landfall- Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, add one mana of any color to your mana pool. Then if you control ten or more lands, six or more elementals, a planeswalker, and have twenty or more mana in your mana pool, you win the game.



In my opinion, this card is powerful, but not overly so- even though he's a wincon in the command zone.

Challenge: Make two cards, one for Ruric and one for Thar (the two heads of Ruric Thar, the Unbowed) and give 'em partner.

RambIe on Gruul In cEDH?

p.s. i used to run a gruul control deck
its a different animal to build and pilot
cmc curve runs higher then what most would be comfortable with
most of your tutoring is for lands
most of your card vantage comes from casting creatures
your control comes from weird 2-3 card combos
Some Examples:
Nikya of the Old Ways + Bazaar Trader
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed + Grafted Exoskeleton
Mycosynth Lattice + Titania's Song
Hellkite Tyrant + Mycosynth Lattice
Natural Affinity + Mob Rule + any devour effect

theirs to many to list but this is enough to give an idea of the flavor
