50% Timmy, 30% Johnny, 20% Spike ... and 100% Vorthos


I started out back in Revised, playing mostly Gruul (way before Gruul was even a thing). I still have my favorite deck from then, with a bunch of well-played cards like Lightning Bolt , Kird Ape , Orcish Lumberjack , and Craw Wurm ... plus a Taiga I really wish I'd had the sense to sleeve.

I was away from Magic for a loooooooong time though, until michael921 convinced me to attend a Two-Headed Giant match at the Dragons of Tarkir prerelease. I selected a Kolaghan pack, cracked a surprisingly solid deck, had an absolute blast, and haven't spent a day without Magic since! As an aside, the prerelease experience was awesome ... I think it's the best way to introduce (or re-introduce) someone to Magic EVER.

I mostly play Modern, but I also enjoy Limited (especially Sealed), Commander, and Standard. I enjoy just about any deck that's got Red ... Izzet, Gruul, Grixis, and Naya are my favorite color combos so far.

Trust me, if I had Infinite time/money, I'd not have a worry about Whooping people at FNM Commander Tournament lol.

Like Expropriate on steroids...

Draft? (NOOB ALERT) I've never actually been in one lol.

You're Welcome! Gruul Moon is a very well made deck, and trust me, I've seen some good decks. Thinking of putting it on my " Wall of Fame"! (Once I figure it out lol)

GoldenAgeBatman,
Came for the deck name; stayed for the deck!

Looks very solid ... the only suggestion I have is to consider bumping up to 21 lands (per the table at the bottom of this article, by Hall-of-Famer Frank Karsten). If the deck is running smoothly for you though (i.e., not losing momentum due to missed land-drops), NVM!

Draw well!

DemonDragonJ,
Wizards changed it to match the phrasing they use in other places when a player must choose something (source).

They don't say exactly why they wanted the phrases to match, but non-functional changes like this are almost always to save space on the card (not the case here, since the new phrase is longer) or to make translation easier/more consistent for players who don't speak English as their primary language (which is presumably the reason here).

For future reference, Wizards almost always explains card text changes in an "Oracle Changes" article on the mothership, so Googling something like "name a card" "oracle changes" site:wizards.com usually works ...

Cheers!

Hey, WebPocket! Thanks for dropping by again, and very sorry I missed your comment until just now!

Rhythm of the Wild is extremely solid, but I've changed the build around a BUNCH since this one. My latest thoughts are over on Gruul Moon.

Cheers!

garruk3,
I've never played Elves, so I don't have any real suggestions for you. But I did want to point out:

Eleven = 11
Elven = Llanowar Elves and the like.

Hareruya is great for otherwise-impossible-to-find Singles, but Wizards doesn't let vendors ship sealed product internationally. So unfortunately, I think your only solution is just to keep checking TCGplayer. :-/

If you haven't checked them out though, Hareyuya is great. They're the largest store in Japan (much like CFB or SCG in the States), and have a nice English-language site too.

Hey, thanks for the upvote on Gruul Moon!

I'm a Land Destruction fan too, and hoping for something like ...

As an aside, Shivan Wumpus is terrible in Modern. When ahead, it's just a win-more, and when behind, our opponent is more than happy to sac' a land, ruin out next draw, and keep beating face.

cdkime,
Just for completeness: Pauper is another that could easily make the jump to "official" Eternal format
