Primal Surge


Exile the top card of your library. If its a permanent card, you may put it onto the battlefield. If you do, repeat this process.

LOL Entari0 that's amazing. I've never seen that card before. I have to test this out and see if my mana ramp is enough to use Primal Surge within a reasonable amount of rounds.

I know the bridge cant hit it, but seeing as your whole deck is permanents, Primal Surge would be hilarious. If you do go that route, I would recommend some form of mass haste enabler, like Concordant Crossroads, so you can turn your deck over and immediately swing out for the win.

My suggestion. Put tons of card draw, only permanents and play Primal Surge as a top end. Mostly budget interesting deck. Instant upgrade. That's what I would do with this commander.

I find I like Lurking Predators in my 55 creature Meren deck, I suspect it'd do a lot of work in here, especially if someone locks up your Commander somehow, almost a backup Commander.

I could be wrong, but would Tyrite Sanctum work in here? Ruric isn't that big really, so +1 access isn't a bad thing from a land, and an Indestructible counter would be sweet on Ruric, now people can't as easily wipe your board.

If you're concerned with the 'no cards in library' issue of Primal Surge you could try running something like Endurance, which will let you make your graveyard your new library, which could give you a few turns if you play Surge late or make you safe from a Cephalid Coliseum. Just noticed that Enduranec is ~$50 card, sorry if that's way over budget, there may be another creature that can do this for you.

My twin brother runs Ruric because he got tired of my azorious style. He uses a deck totally like this, just have Warstorm Surge and for wincon Primal Surge as the only non-permanent spell. Is funny deck, quite strong and punishing for controllers. Just keep in mind if you cast Primal Surge, you must guarantee your win at any cost in the same turn with haste, overrun damage with trample and damage by ETB.

Hey I really appreciate the time taken for these suggestions! I know I could definitely cut some lands from here but the plan was to put as many lands in a deck as I could and have it run well. Most of the non-basic lands I have in here have a way to provide creatures or become them for defense in the early game. I would like to put more fetch lands in here, I am going to look into those.

This deck has been an ongoing project of mine and I have been tuning it a little over time, it is not something I would like to put a lot of money into. It's also one of my earliest decks I have built so it's far from perfect.

I tried not to put instants and sorceries that would only fetch one or two lands, I felt that it could be replaced with something that either gets more, or a permanent that helps out multiple times. That being said, it goes to show I am a huge fan of permanents and free things or stuff that gives you free things each turn. I am going to add Primal Surge to the sideboard and will get them to add for the next deck update.

I specifically try not to have instant win-cons in my decks as my group is very casual. Things like Laboratory Maniac, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, and Enter the Infinite would do just that. I am a fan of building up to something big and eventually ridiculous. Most of my decks are pretty susceptible to heavy control, but as I mentioned before we play casual.

I am also going to add Nissa, Vital Force, Zendikar's Roil, Tireless Provisioner, and Druid Class as these are perfect. I already have Avenger of Zendikar and The Mending of Dominaria in the deck. I also took out Retreat to Coralhelm because it did not really do enough for me.

There is already a insane amount of card draw and now that Aesi is the commander its even more. As it is I have milled myself out a couple of times with this deck and I am trying not to put too much more card draw.

This was a great help and gave me a lot of stuff to look at! I am very thankful of the time you took!

I definitely think you can spare to cut some lands, my own Omnath, Locus of Creation landfall deck only uses 39 (mind you, it has Wooded Foothills, Misty Rainforest and the like which give me extra landfall triggers). In their place I highly suggest some stuff like Roiling Regrowth, Harrow, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, and Growth Spiral.

Other suggestions would be as follows and I made an effort to keep price in mind for all of these as best as I could: Sylvan Awakening, Primal Surge (since you have so many permanents could be used to great effect, and if used alongside cards like Laboratory Maniac, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and maybe even something like Enter the Infinite you could create a sudden win-con out of these. Remember also if you include some of my above suggestions which tutor for land those are helping ever so slightly thin out your deck for such a win con). More would include Nissa, Vital Force, Avenger of Zendikar, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Ulvenwald Hydra,Zendikar's Roil, Ramunap Excavator, Hour of Promise (noticed you have quite a few deserts to have a chance at the bonus effect), Lotus Cobra, Tireless Provisioner, Blackblade Reforged, Druid Class, The Mending of Dominaria, Wilderness Reclamation, Reshape the Earth, Jaheira's Respite, Meloku the Clouded Mirror (let's you repeat all your landfall effects), Retreat to Coralhelm and Praetor's Counsel.

As for actual lands:

Simic Growth Chamber, Reliquary Tower, Myriad Landscape, Scavenger Grounds, and Endless Sands.

Oh and here's my Omnath list I mentioned if you want to give it a glance. I know some of the stuff featured in this is pricey, but it nonetheless may still give you some ideas for now, or otherwise for the future:

Standby for Landfall

Commander / EDH* _Delta_


Hope this helps! If I had more time to spare currently I would suggest what you might cut for these things but that may have to wait for a while unfortunately. But I'll surely return to say more sometime!

Big fan of Primal Surge lists. I have a Jund and an Abzan version. I'll link them if you are intrested.

Maybe Ring of Three Wishes to always find it.

Cut one of the mana dorks for Elvish Reclaimer. Maybe Birds of Paradise too.

Cyclonic Rift is a great card but clunky to the strategy. Maybe Dissipation Field or Ward of Bones instead.
