Ghalta, Primal Hunger occurrence in decks from the last year

Ghalta, Primal Hunger Discussion

Mechanon on Lazav, Destroyer of Decks

Sewer Nemesis , Consuming Aberration , Bonehoard , Grisly Spectacle , Nighthowler , Sepulchral Primordial , Sublime Epiphany , Maddening Cacophony and Talent of the Telepath might be some helpful cards. Lazav is definitely a commander to be reckoned with if you have some milling or if one of your powerful creatures gets killed/countered. Playing Lazav against a Ghalta, Primal Hunger deck is lots of fun, since commanders dying/being countered count as entering the graveyard. There's lots of good mill cards that came out with Zendikar Rising as well.

Nice list to start with. You should consider cards that reduce their cost like Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Dig Through Time , Treasure Cruise or Primeval Protector . Playing a Ghalta for just 2 and still getting a 12 mana cascade trigger is just nuts. The Great Henge is like super good for that reason, it also draws you cards and ramps. Omniscience does really well in Imoti and Aetherflux Reservoir can easily get you 150+ life a turn because of its special interaction with cascade. Also some additional card draw like Thunderous Snapper has proven to be awesome. My Imoti can easily draw and play like 50-70 cards a turn and put 25 lands into play in one turn, with a few changes yours could really get to the next level :-)

MagicMarc on Is Ghalta Primal Hunger female?

3 weeks ago

Since Ghalta, Primal Hunger is a manifestation of Green mana it may not have an actual gender at all. Like Angels...

Ixalan - Legendary Creatures

It just happens to present as Male or Female?

Phion Oh, it’s in there, and it does indeed end some games. That green player just dropped a Ghalta, Primal Hunger ? He dead.

Fun commander idea! If you're looking for a "phase two" boss fight, Darksteel Plate and Hammer of Nazahn go ultra instinct with your commander's fight ability.

Also to take advantage of your commander's HUGE attack, Ghalta, Primal Hunger feels like it should have a place! Mini boss!

If you're looking for a fun card, HIGHLY recommend trying out Chain of Acid , see where your friends alliances REALLY lie!

Interesting article - thanks for that!

It's always tricky adjusting decks so that your main plan happens.

Getting Ghalta, Primal Hunger on the field ASAP is the main goal, and that happens faster with other big Dinos, than it does with Knight of the Stampede

Bigger Dinos also let this deck hold on, before Ghalta hits the field.

StuBi hates decks that are more than one colour, so splashing isn't going to happen.

It would also lead to more expensive cards and/or a slower deck. Since the meta is fast at the moment, that isn't going to work.

I have incorporated Drover of the Mighty , which is a great suggestion, from the article.

Nice! A few more thoughts on The Great Henge : I don't count it as a a ramp spell myself but as a card draw spell. It's a 2 mana Guardian Project with upsides after Multani is out. I would probably still run it if it did not tap for . I run Ghalta, Primal Hunger for similar reasons. Just too much value to pass on imo :).

Hey, cascade doesn't have much interaction with Riku since it only triggers on cast. The token copy of a creature and a spell copy aren't cast. With Riku you want to take advantage of ETB abilities of creatures not cast effects.

Ghalta, Primal Hunger doesn't really belong in a deck with Riku because you don't want to copy it and Riku only has 2 power. If you want battlecruiser with cascade then consider Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder ? He's a beater and requires that you do combat damage to trigger his ability. Cards like Ghalta interact with Yidris because high CMC for cascade, but can cheat it's cost to cast it and Yidris has 5 power.
