There are two kinds of MTG players in this world, and they can be determined by their reaction to Garruk.

If their reaction is 'WOOT PROGENITUS FOR 6 MANA' or 'EDH TIME LET'S GO NUTS!' then they're the kind of person who can see the potential in all cards, and recognise the different types of magic matches.

If their reaction is 'He sucks! Too expensive! Can't create tokens or cause control!' then they're the kind of people who still live in that world where there's only one type of magic game, the basic one-on-one, the only differences being the legality of the cards, and in that world money is the most important factor and any game lasting beyond turn 5 is one where you might as well scoop if you haven't won yet.

I just don't get how hard it is to recognise that Wizards doesn't cater to that second player exclusively, but people still rage.

I played him in the M14 pre-release event and I have to say I absolutely loved him. At first I figured he would be hard to play and overall not as good, however, I soon realized once I got to play him that he was the most valuable asset I had. I could quickly spawn 2-5 creatures a turn. It wasn't hard to reach his -7 ability and once the emblem was obtained the match was pretty much done. This was just in my personal use of him. I was lucky enough to play him about 6 times and he thoroughly impressed me.

I want this guy for my Advocate of the beast deck. I currently only use Primal Hunter but that's the one I need

This is an Elvish Piper, with Haste, that's harder to kill, and can only be activated any time you could cast a sorcery, with extra options. What is not to love? You euther play him, and play Craterhoof, or you draw cards until you get Craterhoof, and if it realllly takes that long to find it, then just use the -7... to get Craterhoof. Every ability either lets you play your win con, or search for it directly. Garruk is a great tutor for green.

Just because Caller may be worse than Wildspeaker and Primal Hunter doesn't necessarily make him bad. 6 CMC is a bit high, but the chance of netting up to five cards from his +1 sounds like a great deal. And in a deck properly built to support him, you'll probably be maximizing this often. -3 isn't bad either since cheating big and expensive things into play is almost always a plus. I virtually never judge Planeswalkers based on their ultimates since I always assume that they won't survive long enough to pull them off. But his -7 should just win you the game because of how many game-ending creature pairs there are: Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Con***s, Avenger of Zendikar + Sylvan Primordial/Craterhoof Behemoth, etc.

Had someone turn 3 this into Worldspine Wurm.

I lost that game.

I like this, he is not just an auto include in any green deck like the other garruks have been kind of, you need to protect this guy and build a bit around him, but if you do, he can win you the game with sheer card advantage. Well designed planeswalker.

Won a copy of this in my draft of M14, and drafted it for my deck too. I had put together a G/U deck with green beasts, blue fliers and blue control. This guy was an utter card advantage monster, especially in the late-game, he easily drew me into the win every time I played him.

I first-picked him over Liliana (not the hottest card pool, but so what). Was I wrong? Maybe, and it was a tough choice. But this guy is totally contructed worthy if you build your deck around him. He's not quite the auto-include of his previous iteration, but so what?! This card makes you think before playing it. Personally I have a G/U/W control deck full of ETB creatures and recurring self-bounce. This has crazy synergy with my entire deck and its mana curve. It's three years old, and to see this come along now just gives me more mechanics to play with.

Because I favour planeswalkers with sideways power, rather than self-evident boom boom power, I am excited about this. A mono green ramp-aggro... (see all)

@Sabisent garruk screams at bolas your a beast bolas then bolas looks at him like an ant and then kills him then takes control of the creature you put out.
