Quote from CurdBros »The new Garruk looks fun with Doubling Season. I’ll give it a try :). I love that the wolf’s dying outs a counter on all Garruk’s (not just him).
Not a Green Devotion staple by any means; but a strong card for superfriends versions.
Quote from CurdBros »I wanted to make a Primeval Titan deck; so I built the following:
Hideaway DevotionMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards
Ramp (20)4x Arbor Elf4x Utopia Sprawl2x Elvish Mystic3x Simian Spirit Guide3x Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner4x Garruk WildspeakerPayoff (10)2x Cavalier of Thorns4x Primeval Titan3x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn1x Walking BallistaSupport (9)4x Oath of Nissa3x Wayward Swordtooth1x Vivien Reid1x Nissa, Vital ForceLand (21)6x Green Fetch Land6x Forest4x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx4x Mosswort Bridge1x Blast Zone
The deck revolves around being able to fetch, play, and untap lands. I wanted to make it as much “play good cards that happen to have synergy” as possible (where the “combo” is a coincidence of playing the way you would normally play anyways). The only cards I feel are “deck specific” are Kiora, Wayward Swordtooth, the extra Emrakul, and Mosswort Bridge. Mosswort is a Land (so is not asking too much) and the others are otherwise good on their own; so I didn’t feel I had pushed things too hard to justify the Mosswort combo.
You can win the old Fashion way just attacking and overrun with Garruk.
The deck also wins casting Emrakul. You do so either via Mosswort Bridge (as it casts the card rather than just putting it in play. I’ve even won several games just hard-casting Emrakul :). 15-mana is surprisingly possible by turn 4 (sometimes even turn 3).
I wanted to get a few Tireless Tracker and a Nissa, Vastwood Seer in there; but they both felt a little too midrange for what the deck is doing. I have been trying trackers in the board.
I’ll try to play it more this evening against the top tier decks and let you know how it goes.
I thought about splashing blue for Kiora, Master of the Depths, Kiora’s Follower, Coiling Oracle? Etc.
The build would be slightly different (you’d probably replace SSG with Oracle, run 1 less Garruk, etc. Youbprobably couldn’t play Blast Zone...
I also thought of playing Knight of the Reliquary; but that felt like a different deck.
I wanted to start Mono-Green first; but may try a few splashes later.
**Edit - Fixed “Swordtooth” **
