Magic Origins: Review of Hunting Pack Intro Pack

Hello everybody! Right now I’m going to review the Hunting Pack Intro Pack. This deck is a Tribal Elf deck. It focuses on getting lots of elves and other creatures on to the battlefield quickly and overrun your opponent. If you can’t do that, then you can force your way in with green pump spells.

Rares

Dwynen-Gilt-Leaf-Daen Managorger-Hydra

Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen is a great 3/4 for 4 mana, because she gives +1/+1 to all other elves, and you also gain 1 life for each elf attacking with it. It’s a great elf synergy card, and it goes super great with this deck. Managorger Hydra is a 1/1 with trample for 3 mana, and whenever a player casts a spell, it gets an +1/+1 counter. If played in the early game, it could easily become a fattie within a few turns.

Good Commons/Uncommons

Dwynen’s Elite is an 2/2 for 2 mana, and it enters the battlefield with an 1/1 Elf Warrior if you control another elf. This is great because it generates two bodies, which comes in handy when playing spells such as Might of the Masses, which is an instant that gives a creature +1/+1 for each creature you control until end of turn for only one mana. Thornbow Archer is an 1/1 for 1 black that does one damage when it swings in, so it deals 2 damage total per combat if it gets past blockers. This is a great card if you can get it in several times in the early game. Joraga Invocation is one of the great bombs in the deck. For 6 mana, it gives all your creature +3/+3 and they must be blocked if possible. It’s a great card to use if you want to obliterate your opponents defenses and deal a load of extra damage.

Cards You Should Add

giltleafwinnower

Gilt-Leaf Winnower is an excellent choice for this deck because it not only has potential to remove large opposing creatures, but it also can tie up two blockers instead of one when you’re on the assault because it has menace.

GnarlrootTrapper

Gnarlroot Trapper allows you to generate mana to cast more elves, but you have to pay one life to trigger to mana ability. It can also tap to give an attacking elf deathtouch, which would be great on some small junky elf so that it can bring down an blocker with it.

nissavastwoodseer

Nissa, Vastwood Seer not only triggers eld synergies, it generates mana when it enters the battlefield to speed up your assault. When it becomes a planeswalker it not only generates more lands, it also transforms lands into Elementals to fight for you.

Thanks for viewing this series of intro pack reviews! If you like the idea, leave a comment and I’ll do the same for Battle for Zendikar.
