i have this idea for a RG deck built around Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma i would like some input on what you guys think RG Ferocious (modern M19)

Unless you plan to play in a very casual (or removal-light) environment, I'd advise against building around a card that gets answered by a 1-mana Lightning Bolt. Goreclaw is too fragile to be a thing in Modern.

Well it also does to push path and terminate .... The only difference between him and goyf is well goyf tends to not due to bolt because he's usually a 3/4 how ever like goyf this guy gets bigger too I think he's okay he dies to the same thing goyf does just not a bolt

right but goyf is a 2 mana investment while goreclaw is a 4 mana investment....... youd be better off playing a Heartless Summoning deck

Exactly. Going only being 2 mana makes up for a bunch of that. Sinking 4 mana into something to have your opponent answer it for 1 is a devastating blow tempo-wise.

I wonder if a BG deck running both could work though, I might make a list later and test it out

i can stil t3 Primeval Titan even if they bolt a t2 Goreclaw rather let him attract the bolt than the arbor elf. that being said i dit go down to 2 Goreclaw and i added Heroic Intervention
