Ruric Thar, the Unbowed Discussion

jackfrost8165, thank you for the suggestion of Orcish Lumberjack. I had it in a prototype version for a little while for some play testing runs. I did like what it brought to the table, it just didn’t make the final cut. Though in one game, I was able to get Omnath out on turn 2 with Orcish Lumberjack and a combination of other cards. Very god like hand.

Saljen, thank you for the many suggestions! I took a look at your deck and it looks good! It somewhat plays like my Ruric Thar, the Unbowed deck. Which I feel like the suggestions you made would be better suited for that deck. I will definitely keep those cards in mind for future updates. Thanks again!

No Ruric Thar, the Unbowed? Necessary for all gruul decks IMO

Liking the list, here is my own Najeela, the Blade-Blawesome. I don't run Cryptolith Rite or Song of Freyalise cuz Najeela won't untap them, it makes for too many pieces of the puzzle. I have been able to test my deck a little bit and so far, I've enjoyed more the beefy Warriors and using the token gen as a side bonus. Zurgo Helmsmasher, Surrak Dragonclaw, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Ruhan of the Fomori, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, and of course Hamletback Goliath have all been all-stars.

Possibly add Glory-Bound Initiate and Champion of Rhonas to abuse exert

701.37b A permanent can be exerted even if it's not tapped or has already been exerted in a turn. If you exert a permanent more than once before your next untap step, each effect causing it not to untap expires during the same untap step.

Few others to consider

Den Protector really good recursion warrior

Hidden Dragonslayer removal warrior

Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist control opponent attack and blocks

Samut, Voice of Dissent really good overall warrior and gives haste

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed burns casters like crazy

Gilt-Leaf Winnower removal one a warrior

I'm gonna have to try Reconnaissance at some point as it seems pretty silly. I'm slightly hesitant to add mama elf Marwyn, the Nurturer as I'm not sure how she will perform but overall I've been happy with how mine went.

The deck can present a threatening board state with just 2 to 3 creatures which is rather nice.

When I played it I was able to get Ruric Thar, the Unbowed turn 5 I believe.....he didn't even make it my next turn lol.

I recently added Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Whip of Erebos for some card draw and life gain.

Hi! I used to have a Primal Surge deck built around Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, I suggest this very important card Concordant Crossroads to give haste to all your angels so you can smack with 'em after surging; because if you wait one whole turn cycle, I believe your opponents will find ways to boardwipe (Merciless Eviction) and you might be left with no angels at all.

Manamorphose isnt really ramp so I wouldnt run it. Those are good cards to add, but I probably wouldnt cut Clan Defiance or a couple of the other good creatures you listed. Theres worse creatures in your pool like Rust Scarab.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed might be better for you here if youre looking to whip out damage. Cheaper too. But theres even cheaper dudes in gruul, plus the new Radha is good. You should go to gatherer and find one that fits what you wanna do best, and try and keep your creatures that synergize well.
