Ruric thar, Lord of the Fatties

Commander / EDH



This is my first attempt at building a deck. and I am looking for feedback to strengthen this deck.

I'd recommend you find a way to compensate for the damage Ruric does whenever you cast one of your non-creature spells; right now you have 0. For every creature-heavy deck using green I'd recommend Elvish Piper.

I'd probably remove some planeswalkers and replace them with creatures. Depending on how many people you play with Planeswalkers normally don't last more than 1-2 turns (when you are playing with 4+ people). 2-3 is normally fine, especially the mana rampers, but otherwise the deck looks great. The amount of ramp is sufficient, the removal is strong, and the card draw is there.

Thank you so much for your suggestions. Yea the group is about 5 people including me, so I reduced the number of planeswalkers. I took out xenagos, the reveler, Chandra, torch of defiance, and garruk, caller of beasts. I added birds of paradise, wood elves, and garruk, primal hunter. I think I like primal hunter over caller of beasts cuz of the card draw.

Well 1) Gruul Ragebeast, 2) Spellbreaker Behemoth, 3) Where Ancients Tread and Warstorm Surge and 4) how about a new name? 'Ruric Thar, Lord of Big Things', 'Large_Creatures.deck', 'I swing with everythi- okay that's game', 'First the Lands, Then the World!!'

Thanks for the advice. Gruel ragebeast is on my watchlist, my issue is I have too many small creatures and that would mean I drop them and they die. I didn't include Spellbreaker behemeath because there is little counter magic in my meta, if that changes i will include it. Where ancient treads and warstorm surge are both excellent additions that i overlooked. I found space for warstorm surge and will reassess where ancient treads after play test.

Thanks and keep them coming
