Surrak, the Hunt Caller Discussion

hoardofnotions on Radha, Butcher of Keld

Mj3913 Thanks for the suggestions!

I'm thinking about taking out all the nonvital artifacts/enchantments so adding Fires of Yavimaya is iffy. Anger is surprisely expensive, and though i think it's better than Surrak, the Hunt Caller that's what i have for now.

The 7 mana removal options kinda don't do it for me. I think the idea that your removal should cost less than what you're removing sounds smart, especially when we're talking about a 7 mana kill one thing. That's not great in commander, I think at least.

bushido_man96 I like your ideas!

Do you think Desert Twister or Rain of Thorns is better removal?

Crater Hellion is interesting. It's going to kill radha, at the very least, and I think I'd need to retool the creatures at least a little to ensure i don't lose too much.

Groundskeeper is good after a land wipe, but only in certain situations. The land kill spell almost has to be Epicenter, all the others kill it if it's out. I think it might be too slow right now, but I'll need more playtesting to see.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Thanks for explaining your reasoning about Crop Rotation! I agree it's a good card, but it's not very powerfull by itself and kinda expensive($) so i think i'll leave it out for now.

Growth Spasm could go in, it's basically a 2 land ramp that has a least a marginal upside late game. Thanks for suggesting this one!

Argothian Wurm seems like a trap. It's just a big dude, and it might time walk me. especially if people are spitefull after a land wipe haha.

Ember Swallower seems so lackluster, if only it was a mini wildfire on monstrosity!

lagotripha 8-whack will always be faster, the way to beat it is through consistency with efficient creatures. Narnam Renegade is one of them, it can kill everything don't caring about stats and if revolted (rarely, it's true but happens) it can survive opponent's 1 drops, even some 2 drops. Kalonian Tusker can be better in some cases, I think the real problem is that I empty my hand faster because where classic stompy plays a 2 drop I play 2 1 drops so Lifecrafter's Bestiary maindeck can be useful.

dannecticut Thanks for help. Trigger Narnam Renegade's revolt is not so necessary, play it pre-combat to get devotion is totally fine as it still does its backup job.I treid Attune with Aether but it's too slow, play Greenbelt Rampager for would be nice but this is not why it's in the deck.I prefer Kalonian Tusker over Garruk's Companion due to more survivability and cause I'm not playing a playset of Aspect of Hydra.I've Surrak, the Hunt Caller and I like it, no time to try it but I'll do, same for Beast Within and Heroic Intervention.

Other creatures worth considering:

Garruk's Companion: I play it instead of Kalonian Tusker because Trample makes Aspect of Hydra that much more deadly.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller: Unless your board is empty, he will usually be able to give himself Haste. He closes out games out of nowhere because no one ever suspects him.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller could work really well in your deck, i think it's quite obvious what the benefits are here.
I am suprised you aren't running Frontier Siege, that card has insane syngergy with Omnath since it generates 2 mana in each of your mainphases, so 4 mana per turn.
If you need any more card draw, the new Rishkar's Expertise seems like a great fit for your deck.
Another nice little support card for Omnath is Savage Summoning, it helps against countermagic and removal (recast Omnath with your floating mana).

Mage Slayer should definitely go in.

Archetype of Aggression seems like it fits.

Foe-Razer Regent and really any fight cards.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller while not Gruul per se, fits the ethos fairly well.

What about Surrak, the Hunt Caller? Back in the Devotion-Green deck he was a great card because he easily enables Ferocious.
