Surrak, the Hunt Caller Discussion

Vlasiax on The Ur-Dragon

Yeah, I use exactly the same lines of play to win. Might be my misunderstaning of sheer power of Mystical Tutor as a second copy of Cyclonic Rift , Patriarch's Bidding , Toxic Deluge or Stubborn Denial all of which when used correctly are basically win-cons.

With Sensei's Divining Top I'm not sure where I'd put it since you're right - this deck drains mana every turn and more often than not I'd use that 1 mana for tutor/removal than topdeck manipulation. That was just loose suggestion for better consistency with Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and in case someone blows Sylvan Library .

I might be a little more convinced after playing a few "1 vs 2 NPC" games that we actually don't need Dragonlord Kolaghan that much just to up the Dragon creature count. However, Glorybringer is very useful as he takes out most of other commanders like Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Surrak, the Hunt Caller . Other option I can think of might be Fire Covenant , which can shot down many targets at once and at instant speed.

Also for these 3CMC planeswalkers I think about finding a slot for Abrupt Decay as a more conditional Assassin's Trophy that has the upside of not being countered. I wonder why you got rid of Anguished Unmaking - 3 CMC is too much?

stensiagamekeeper--wow. Best deck comments ever!

One, math is hard. Agreed. I've run 8 dorks before and it feels ALL IN on the combo. No plan B. I'll stick to 6 for now, but run 4 Birds of Paradise and 2 Noble Hierarch s (the original list was 2 Birds and 4 Nobles which felt wrong for color fixing).

Two, agreed. I'll probably run Nullhide Ferox the first night, but I think Obstinate Baloth is where it is at. 2 less fling damage for 4 maindeck life gain seems correct.

Three, the deck originally called for a maindeck Cavern of Souls but I agree it doesn't need it. I will keep an eye on the mana and consider adjusting my dork split. I hadn't thought of the Raging Ravine angle. I'll add it to the Maybeboard.

Four, ah! It didn't occur to me Linvala, Keeper of Silence was for that match up. I suppose that works for Whir Prison, too. Thanks!

The creator of the deck has top 8'ed with and without Ghalta, Primal Hunger . I'll keep it on my radar. Surrak, the Hunt Caller is faster than he looks because if you evolve Strangleroot Geist his undying trigger gives you 8 power and haste. I'm staying away from enchantments, planeswalkers, and 5 drops for now because they don't combo well with Strangleroot Geist plus Eldritch Evolution . Otherwise the boar or some of the new god-eternals would be sweet!

Thanks for your help and let me know if you think of anything else, or if you have any Modern lists you need a second set of eyes on!

I like it! What do you think of Lead the Stampede over Elemental Bond ? I play it in Elves and it is often a three mana draw 3+. I would also consider Surrak, the Hunt Caller in the main, and Reclamation Sage over Back to Nature and Thragtusk over some Feed the Clan in the side. Beast Within and Damping Sphere are good catch-all's, too.

If you get a chance check out my Gruul Cragganwick. I think you will get a kick out of it!

Deck looks really solid. A few suggestion would be Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma , Genesis Hydra , Regal Force and Surrak, the Hunt Caller . Goreclaw is a good way to play more things as well as give your big creatures trample, Hydra is a solid way to heavily swing the board in your favor as well as being a big threat on its own, Regal Force will help to stop you from running out of gas. and Surrak can win a game out of no where and is always a solid include for a creature based strategy.

S1ayerMonkey - Wave of Vitriol is a good idea and I love Elderscale Wurm . Can't believe I've never heard of that card before. Thanks!

hkhssweiss - My poor man's Craterhoof Behemoth right now is Tooth and Nail into Surrak, the Hunt Caller and Pathbreaker Ibex but End-Raze Forerunners is a good option too. Also I desperately want Concordant Crossroads but right now it's a little bit out of my budget. Maybe next paycheck!

Cloudius - Love all these suggestions. I've definitely been heavily considering Birthing Pod and Triumph of the Hordes . Infect is slightly frowned upon in my group but I might just say fuck it and go in on it anyway. It's too good to leave behind. Champion of Lambholt is an interesting idea that I didn't consider initially but she could also be a really useful inclusion now that I think about it. Got her in a few other decks and she always plays great. Thanks for the suggestions!

+1 because I started reading the description and comments in Hulks Voice and it was great. Sadly I couldn't come up with any suggestions to go with it.

On second thought... Perhaps Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread could fit in for some extra removal. Fervor , Fires of Yavimaya , and Rhythm of the Wild are all haste enablers, or if you want to keep it more creature based there's Anger and Surrak, the Hunt Caller . Then you can smash face faster.

And in the spirit of keeping The Hulk angry... Azorius has my vote. Sorry, not sorry.

I cant really speak for Legacy play however; ive seen a neat Modern brew on here using Eldritch Evolution . Birds of Paradise , Somberwald Sage are some ramp... maybe undying/persist would be nice like Strangleroot Geist / Kitchen Finks or maye Thragtusk could come in handy for sacrifice fodder... Surrak, the Hunt Caller could work for a haste enabler?

Elvish Aberration is just the right size to be reduced by Goreclaw, and taps for GGG, getting you halfway to infinite power and toughness.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can also help you go infinite (after the initial downpayment of mana).

See the Unwritten and Surrak, the Hunt Caller might also work nicely.

Happy brewing!
