Predatory Focus is good but a very costly drop.
I'm seeing a lot of 1x ofs, if I were you I would try to get consistency and reform what doesn't really need to be in there, even if you like it.
Stonebrow, Krosan Hero is pointless in my eyes.
It just seems like you are a little bit unsure of what you want this deck to be, I would look around on what has been played competitively for Gruul recently and reform based on that. If you are really desperate, you can check out my Gruul Deck centered around Primeval Titan: It's Prime Time!
Good luck, and happy building!

Hey guys, I could use some advice on which guildmages (and battlemages) are worth running in a non-powered Cube. Currently, I'm running all the Ravnica ones, but I want to get rid of the subpar pieces and am curious about the battlemages' usefulness.
This is a list of all Guildmages and Battlemages:
There's also Leonin Battlemage, but he doesn't quite fit with the others. If you want to see what I'm running currently, my list can be found below.

You're right, for "bombs" I only have Zhur-Taa Ancient, which also gives more mana and mentioned before punisher Ruric Thar, the Unbowed. I think about changing Burning-Tree Emissary for something else, because it comes almost for free and I mainly use it to block. Maybe I'll change it for Scab-Clan Mauler, which always has Bloodthirst activated, thanks to Zhur-Taa Druid's ability.
Also huge domination over my opponent gives me second ability of Skarrg Guildmage. After 5-6 turns I have many mana sources and almost nothing to spend it for, thats why I run 4x of them.
Anyway thanks for help and for showing your version of Gruul deck.

I took out some cards that were not really performing as much as I had hoped. Savage Beating, while has an awesome name is a bit obsolete since I have Aggravated Assault for as many combats as possible. Inferno Titan while it was powerful I didn't play it over some of my other cards that are bigger and slightly better like the Atarkas. A lot of my mana comes from ramp so I don't think that Thran Dynamo got above the line. Polis Crusher was only to stop someone in my playgroup but other than that I can do better. Savage Twister is one of many mass damage spells and I have many of them to spare and this was the worst one out of them. Kodama's Reach is one basically another cultivate and its not the best for my curve.
I put in Zhur-Taa Druid for a mana dork and some small damage over time. Bloodbraid Elf to get a bit more advantage out if the cascade trigger. Some trample and more bodies with Skarrg Guildmage, some more mana and a win-con with Shaman of Forgotten Ways. Shamanic Revelation for card draw and some lifegain and Burning-Tree Shaman for a good body for the cost and to punish players over time.
Ill be play-testing soon so hopefully there will be some improvements.

Thornbite Staff is shaman equipment. Lightning Crafter is a free bolt every turn and is also good with Thornbite Staff. Ire Shaman is another shaman. Ashling the Pilgrim is good. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker could be a 1 of. Leaf-Crowned Elder gives you free stuff every turn. Skarrg Guildmage is a card. Stigma Lasher could be sideboard against soul sisters. Thrun, the Last Troll and Troll Ascetic are hard to kill. Ulvenwald Tracker kills stuff. Vexing Shusher is more sideboard. Young Pyromancer would be good if you add in more instants and sorceries.Adaptive Automaton is a shaman lord. Cavern of Souls and Mutavault are shaman lands. Descendants' Path gets you more shamans. Shared Animosity makes everything have more power. Chameleon Colossus and Taurean Mauler are changelings.

Deathrite Shaman is good graveyard hate. I know you can't use the black ability but creatures and lands are the most important things in graveyards, also with people running fetch lands, he also acts as mana ramp and he is a shaman so you can still buff him and then attack with him later. Llanowar Augur is another good 1 drop that is good against rdw and burn because it can block turn 1 goblin guide and monastery swift spear and later when he isn't useful anymore you can sack him to buff up your other shaman's. Reclamation Sage is good artifact/enchantment hate that also gives you a shaman body. Skarrg Guildmage might be a good inclusion because it gives all your creatures trample for a big attack, a problem that you can face against other aggro decks or token decks are that they can chum block your shaman's but this will help you push through. Thrun, the Last Troll and Vexing Shusher are both good options against control while still being shaman creatures

I would recommend Assault Suit and putting the vows back in since you are going to have a few spots from the non cluestone mana rocks coming out. I would also recommend a few more sources of global trample for your board, such as Primal Rage, Archetype of Aggression, Gruul War Plow, Nylea, God of the Hunt, and Skarrg Guildmage. I trample really helps the Overrun you are looking for and also makes it much easier to kill via Commander damage. (Note I only have 1 source of trample and nothing to stop her from hitting me in my deck, I just am recommending based off how most people play her).
