Primal Surge

Description

Is this deck too dickish? I built this the other night on a whim. I haven't used Primal Surge before and wanted to try it out. Turns out this deck works fairly well even if it doesn't utilize that particular card. Any comments or critiques welcome.

I'd replace the sorcery ramp with permanents.

Thragtusk instead of bountiful harvest. card:Avacyn's Pilgrim for the rest.

Then add a Fervor and a Craterhoof Behemoth for the combo kill, if you get a primal surge off you swing for a bunch of damage.

Why on earth don't you have any fatties? If you are relying on primal surges, then make use of it to its full extent. 2x Worldspine Wurm , 2x Armada Wurm , and whatever else you want. I understand with Armada Wurm the extra white mana will render it useless if you draw it, but you could just throw in 4x card:Avacyn's Pilgrim. I would definitely take out the Golgari Longlegs , Boneyard Wurm , Mentor of the Meek , Deadly Recluse , Axebane Guardian , Archweaver , and card:Garruk's Packleader to be replaced with better creatures (i.e. more Ghoultree s or Wolfir Silverheart s). Def bump up Primal Surge to a 4 of. Replace card:Ranger's Path with Seek the Horizon . Take out Bountiful Harvest

Second idea add a Laboratory Maniac because it combos with the Garruk Packleader, Visionary, or any other draw for the win.

Primal Surge is only good if you can lay your whole deck on the table and win that turn. It should be the only nonland permanent. Add card:Akroma's Memorial as it is better than Fervor and you can cast it if you draw it, which you wouldn't be able to do with Fervor .

freelancre I am hoping to pull some Worldspine Wurm today. Mostly I wasn't too sure what all to put in. I only have 2 Primal Surge at the moment but I do want more in. The main reason I had a few sorceries in there was that I read Primal Surge wrong at first. I put those in as a buffer to keep myself from drawing out. I will def be replacing those though. I will definitely keep these suggestions in mind as I get more green creatures. I put the Boneyard Wurm in because I figured I could chump block with some of the 1/1 creatures and then bring out the wurm.

ottosmagic13 Good suggestion with the Thragtusk . I am still fairly new to magic so finding cards like this always helps. Also the Laboratory Maniac is a nice card to know. One of my friends has a mill deck. This would be fun to play with that.

Mill Deck you say? Plop an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in your deck :-D
