Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig Discussion

multimedia on Ghalta

Hey, very good budget version of Ghalta. Less than $100 at TCGPlayer is impressive.

Some card upgrades to consider:

  • Garruk, Primal Hunter > Soul's Majesty
    Garruk can be a repeatable Majesty and it has other abilities as well as devotion.

  • Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig > Loathsome Chimera
    Yorvo starts as a 4/4 and it can grow as more creatures you control ETB.

  • Shared Summons > Migration Path
    Can afford to cut a land ramp spell for a creature tutor and this tutor can get two different creatures.

  • Bow of Nylea > Monstrous Step
    Repeatedly give attacking Ghalta deathtouch can be a one sided board wipe if opponent is forced to throw all of his/her creatures to block Ghalta. Giving the Unicorns and Breaker deathtouch can also be a one sided board wipe and these creatures want to attack.

  • Castle Garenbrig > 1x Forest
    Powerful land for ramp with green creatures.

  • Regrowth > Survivors' Bond
    There's only two Humans here and Regrowth can recur any card.

  • Hunter's Insight > Life's Legacy
    Insight is instant doesn't require you sac the creature to draw.

  • Skyshroud Claim > Ranger's Path
    Same CMC, but Skyshroud puts the Forests you get onto the battlefield not tapped.

Good luck with your deck.

With mono G stompy builds I like to play Lovestruck Beast and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig, as they make Ghalta a ton cheaper. Also, Surrak, the Hunt Caller is quite good and The Great Henge is amazing with Growth-Chamber Guardian.

The problem with bouncing Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig and Polukranos, Unchained is that they enter the battlefield with counters already on them, you don't put +1/+1 counters on them so Simic Ascendency will not trigger. If you had Galloping Lizrog available, I suppose that there would be a number of tricks that you could play. You would, however, need to bounce both Yorvo and Lizrog which means that you would need a bunch of flicker cards....

The closest deck to this that might work is something like M PAW M, but you might need a few more counter cards to overcome your opponent's control.

Forgotten Ancient is a cheap green creature that grows pretty big and can then distribute the counters.

Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig is a creature that will quickly grow to be large as you cast more of your green spells.

Vigor will pretty much make all your creatures grow bigger when they’d take damage and makes a bird wipe like Blasphemous Act just not work.

I have several suggestions:

Pathbreaker Ibex would be a fantasic finisher in a big green beats deck.

Traverse the Outlands would ramp hard with all these big creatures.

Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig comes in early and just gets bigger as the game goes on.

Asceticism will protect your big greenies while giving some kind of recovery to board wipes.

Nyxbloom Ancient would produce all the mana.

Guardian Project is good card draw in a creature heavy deck like this.

Nessian Boar plays into your theme of big green for a measly five mana.

If I think of more, I'll be back...

I like a lot of the interactions here, particularly between the Burning-Tree Emissary and Ghalta, Primal Hunger/Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig. Have you considered Hidden Herbalists to serve a similar purpose to the Emissaries? Samut, Tyrant Smasher seems like it would also be a nice fit for the deck as it pumps, gives haste, filters your deck, and still adds 2 to your devotion count. Hope this helps.
