Garruk's Horde Discussion

This is an impressive list. I know how hard mono can rock from my Her Royal Fluffness list, great job. Some cards you might want to consider:

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma , Nyxbloom Ancient , Garruk's Horde

Also, Eternal Witness is a great card, and Temur Sabertooth and/or Kogla, the Titan Ape can make it even better. Paleoloth is a massively underrated card in such a deck. Also, have you ever heard of Shared Summons ? In a deck like this, that gets to 12+ mana in no time, it can really help you get the most important creatures.

How about Rienne, Angel of Rebirth as protection for both your commanders and some of your creatures? Garruk's Horde, Vizier of the Menagerie and similar effects would be pretty great as well.

I'm not saying you should play Garruk's Horde and/or Vizier of the Menagerie. But I'm neither saying you shouldn't.

Seriously though, you should definitely try them out.

TheVectornaut on Favorite Mtg Art?

By color, I'd probably go with Knight Exemplar, Prognostic Sphinx, Desecration Demon, Obsidian Fireheart, and Garruk's Horde. I tend to prefer art on creatures that are nostalgic to me.

Also, I love the celestial theme of cards from Theros like Starfield of Nyx.

The permission thing is there because it's not necessarily whenever you may cast a sorcery but whenever the game gives you the permissions to cast it as an adventure. I can't remember the examples but there were slight differences. It's very much a case by case scenario that you have to double check.

The modified reminder text specifically mentions if you have not chosen to cast Cast Off in regards to if it is treated as Realm-Cloaked Giant or not.

Examples of Melek, Izzet Paragon's effect are in a different card: Noncreature cards with morph on top of your library may be cast as morphs off of Garruk's Horde. Melek and Garruk's Horde don't actually give a damn about what type the top card of your library is, only what type you are casting it as.

In effect ... adventures are MDFCs before MDFCs were a thing. I spent a lot of time drilling a few judges I knew about these to really be able to get a better reminder text for the adventure sides down since what was on the card was inadequate.

Hey, a $100 Azusa deck is impressive seeing how she is 1/3 of the cost of the entire deck :)

Fierce Empath + Temur Sabertooth is a budget interaction to consider adding. A problem with Azusa is you have tons of lands, can make lots of mana, but you can't use the mana. Empath can help because it can tutor for any 6 CMC or higher creature, putting it into your hand. Sabertooth is a powerful green support as a mana sink since it can bounce your own creatures who have ETB abilities to protect itself and then you get to cast those creatures again to trigger the ETB abilities again. Bounce Empath to then tutor for another creature.

Genesis Hydra is another creature who has good interaction with Sabertooth and benefits from having lots of mana. Hydra can put an enchantment or Planeswalker if you reveal one onto the battlefield which can be powerful for green. For ten mana you can repeat the ETB ability of End-Raze Forerunners with Sabertooth. For nine mana repeat Regal Force's draw. Castle Garenbrig, pay four mana to make six mana to use to cast creatures or activate abilities of creatures. Being able to activate abilities with this mana makes this land very good for green and with Sabertooth.

Soul of New Phyrexia can make all your permanents indestructible this includes all your lands/enchantments/artifacts/Planeswalker as well as creatures and you can pay for this ability with Garenbrig. Elemental Bond + Garruk, Primal Hunter can be budget repeatable draw and Bond/Garruk has interaction with lots of high powered creatures.

Some budget upgrades to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Gingerbread Cabin
  • Strength of Cedars
  • Sight of the Scalelords
  • Baloth Woodcrasher
  • Feral Hydra
  • Journeyer's Kite
  • Tower of Fortunes

Good luck with your deck.

Any thoughts on which cards are the ones that should be cut? I like you suggestions of Steel Hellkite, Gruul Ragebeast, Feral Hydra, and Garruk's Horde.
