Surrak, the Hunt Caller

Legendary Creature — Human Warrior

Formidable — At the beginning of combat on your turn, if creatures you control have total power 8 or greater, target creature you control gains haste until end of turn.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller Discussion

I love this deck. The only things I would add are Aggressive Mammoth and maybe Surrak, the Hunt Caller. Being able to give sewer nemesis haste and trample could be sweet and give your opponent less of a chance to kill him.

Link to my decklist - which is very much subject to change:

Eldritch StompoSaurus

Modern Xica


Some notes: - Strangleroot Geist & Voice of Resurgence have very strong interactions with effects that sacrifice them - so they are great with Eldritch Evolution, and can be evolved into Surrak, the Hunt Caller, which gets haste on the beginning of combat if my creatures have combined power 3 or more (beside him) - It of the Horrid Swarm is great with Voice of Resurgence as it kills it to create the token, and in itself provides 3 bodies, so the voice token will be at least a 4/4 - It of the Horrid Swarm also has a high enough cmc, to enable evolving it into either Iona, Shield of Emeria, or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

(plus in my humble opinion stompy beatdown is much better backup strategy than "just" playing creatures that ramp - and high cmc stompy creatures make Eldritch Evolution, or paying emerge costs, more easy - you can only sack a single creature for the emerge cost)

Hey, consider more haste enablers? The drawback of Vaevictis is he doesn't do anything as a six drop the turn you play him unless he has haste. Giving Etali haste is also really good.

antipopes, yeye! I run a Goreclaw deck you can check out; we prolly have a few overlapping similarities. One fun thing I like to do is to either Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail --> Surrak, the Hunt Caller + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in the first main phase to haste Ulamog and have an Outta Nowhere Annihilator 4.

Cool deck.

I'd drop Mossbridge Troll since you only have 2 creatures with 10+ power and not many ways for +1/+1 counters.

I'd look for more card draw too. Suggestions, Primordial Sage , Harmonize , Rishkar's Expertise , Shamanic Revelation , Colossal Majesty .

You have plenty of mana ramp, so I would personally throw in a Thicket Elemental with kicker to cheat another creature to the battlefield.

I also think a must for this deck is Tooth and Nail , ESPECIALLY since you already have a Concordant Crossroads . If for whatever reason you don't have your Crossroads out you can just TNN Surrak, the Hunt Caller + anything else to have it attack that turn.

Swiftfoot Boots could be a decent addition to protect Vaevictis and give haste. Hanweir Battlements and Flamekin Village are also good lands that give haste for Vaevictis. Hall of the Bandit Lord only gives haste. Need for Speed fits the land sacrifice theme. Mass Hysteria is also low in mana cost. Maybe also Racecourse Fury.

Creatures that work are Xenagos, God of Revels, Surrak, the Hunt Caller, Urabrask the Hidden which also taps opponents' creatures, Anger if you discard or sacrifice it, or Garna, the Bloodflame to also bring back your dead creatures.
