Garruk, the Veil-Cursed

Legendary Planeswalker — Garruk

+1 : Create a 1/1 black Wolf creature token with deathtouch.

-1 : Sacrifice a creature. If you do, search your library for a creature card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

-3 : Creatures you control gain trample and get +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of creature cards in your graveyard.

Title says it all. There are technically 10 Garruk cards available to the game if you search on Gatherer, but one is not able to be used in EDH (Online only), and then there is Garruk Relentless  Flip and Garruk, the Veil-Cursed which are really one physical card.

This brings the total of "card slots" for Garruk Planeswalkers down to 8. Which, obviously, is not a lot. But, it's what I want to do.

Any suggestions as to what Commander would work best for this? No, I don't want to "Just do Atraxa". That's no fun.

Vorinclex 2.0 won't work as I need black mana.

Thoughts? Or should I go Jund and throw Domri into the mix, so that I have Garruk Planeswalkers making creature tokens and Domri Planeswalkers making those tokens chonky?

There's only 4 Domri, so that brings the total to 12. I suppose I could add Xenagos, the Reveler for more tokens and mana. That'd be 13, which isn't too terrible for a light superfriends deck.

If I do that, would Lord Windgrace be fair? Then I can draw 2 cards per turn if I am discarding lands, I can get those lands back essentially at any time, and I can get tokens who Domri and Garruk can synergise with?

I might run fewer/creatures, since stickfingers will until you reveal x creatures, not just x cards. The fewer you have the higher chance you hit one that destroys the table if you just overload on ramp and reanimates. Rather than these things Crawl from the Cellar,Ghoul's Feast,Gravepurge I'd focus on just reanimating and is easy to get and will probably serve you better. If you really do want it back in your hand Genesis Skullwinder and Eternal Witness do this while attached to a body.

Rather than sending to your hand these will just bring back Diregraf Rebirth, Victimize, Reanimate, Exhume, Unearth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Stitch Together,Dread Return.Geth, Lord of the Vault is expensive but can fill your yard as well as revive others. Finale of Devastation revives or tutors, and is a finisher.

Blossoming Wreath,Gnaw to the Bone probably heal less than lifelink, and there's a ton of ways to give lifelink.

Rampant Growth is slightly inferior to Three Visits and Nature's Lore as long as your dual lands have both typesOvergrown Tomb, Bayou, Woodland Chasm, although I'd definitely run all three if there's room. Culling Ritual would be an amazing ramp/wipe card you can use to nuke all tokens and then cast stickfingers. Sakura-Tribe Elder is just rampant growth that works as a blocker for one turn, and it is another creature in your graveyard. Lotus Cobra ramps too, particularly with your other ramp options.

And you'll likey have enough mana to use Decree of Pain, if not, other wipe options are Damnation,Pernicious Deed,Death Cloud,Deathbringer Regent,In Garruk's Wake,Killing Wave,Necromantic Selection,Plague Wind,Reiver Demon,Toxic Deluge. Torment of Hailfire works as a finisher too Endurance is basically the only way you can protect your graveyard that I can think of. I'd probably run Veil of Summer too.

Moodmark Painter gives the +x/+x buff and is on a body Garruk Relentless  Flip flips into Garruk, the Veil-Cursed, but its tricky to make this one work

Since you'll have access to really big creatures these can be nice for draw. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Morbid Curiosity, Life's Legacy, Disciple of Bolas, Doom Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

Mesmeric Orb,Stitcher's Supplier would be an amazing graveyard filler.

Zombie Infestation and Wild Mongrel is usefull for dumping creatures out of your hand

I think every single black deck should run Dauthi Voidwalker, and the more grave hate you have the more you could take advantage of Living End/Living Death if you use these as mass reanimates. they are the cheapest.

Life from the Loam and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip would be good helps for mana and options.

As long as you run Filth run Crop Rotation and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth too since it will make every creature you have unblockable.

Deathrite Shaman would benefit from more fetch lands Marsh Flats,Verdant Catacombs,Misty Rainforest would help mana fix as well as throw more lands into your graveyard.

You have a fairly high number of tutors, and a ton of ramp, so i'd consider Panglacial Wurm. It's a card you dont need to waste a draw to get and can be cast instant speed. And its fun to surprise people with it at least once.

The legendary rule says you can’t have more than one legendary permanent of the same full name in play at the same time. But since Garruk Relentless  Flip and Garruk, the Veil-Cursed don’t have the same full name, could you have both in play?

Some clarification of Obby's timeline:

1) Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath conquered his home plane then sparked.

2) On his travels/conquests of other planes at some point he was attracted by The Chain Veil 's power. However he was cursed by it when he touched it and started becoming a demon.

3) He travelled to Zendikar in hopes of using its powerful and wild mana to stop or reverse his demonic transformation.

4) Upon his arrival on the plane its protector, Nahiri, the Lithomancer , implanted a hedron in his forehead which robbed him of his spark and caused his wings to wither and eventually die. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen

5) After a few thousand years Jace, the Mind Sculptor was trying to figure out how to help Garruk, the Veil-Cursed . He extracted the hedron from Ob Nixilis's forehead and managed to implant it in Garruk's arm. In both Ob Nixilis and Garruk the hedron had the effect of subduing the veil's curse. It brought some clarity to the mind of Garruk, Apex Predator .

6) I remember reading a story where Ob Nixilis, Unshackled was buried alive and he very gradually dug his way down and toward a power source he could sense. This is how he found the Khalni Heart which he first tried to use to reignite his spark before Nissa, Voice of Zendikar stopped him.

7) Utterly sick and tired of Zendikar at this point, and buried alive once more after his duel with Nissa, Nixilis vowed vengeance on the entire plane. He hijacked the Aligned Hedron Network when the Zendikari momentarily managed to trap Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger . Ob Nixilis Reignited managed to siphon off enough power from Ulamog to reignite his spark. He then broke Ulamog out of the hedron prison and summoned Kozilek to the surface. He took the time to easily defeat Nissa, Gideon, and Jace before leaving, but Chandra showed up in time to rescue them. At that point it wasn't worth the effort to stick around for any more petty vengeance so he left.

8) Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted took part in the War of the Spark. He joined Karn, Samut, and Dack Fayden on their mission to close Tezzeret's Planar Bridge from the Amonkhet side (they travelled through the portal itself because of The Immortal Sun ). Tezzeret didn't put up much of a fight. Nixilis burned large swaths of the remaining Eternal army before planeswalking away.

Ok so the back side of the innistrad art of Garruk Relentless  Flip is showing the Garruk, the Veil-Cursed art in the deck veiwer and play testing. But clicking on the card to it's link or whatever shows the right art. Sorry if this was confusing

Please, clarify to me: can you play Garruk Relentless  Flip on this GW deck? I thought the card's identity was GB due to Garruk, the Veil-Cursed 's side of it...

Other than that, the list seems pretty cool! Maybe more ramp spells instead of ramp artifacts since you're already on green, but that's that!

Garruk, the Veil-Cursed The other side of the card doesn't show up at all (the castable side)

Unfortunately, I don't think you're allowed to have Arlinn, Embraced by the Moon or Garruk, the Veil-Cursed in your deck because of your color identity.
