Commander Primer: Gruul
Welcome, Commander players! This primer is on the basics of playing Gruul in Commander, and is part of a ten-part series that covers all of Magic’s two-color pairs. In this series, we go through the strengths and weaknesses of each color pair, as well as common play styles. You can read our other primers so far: Simic, Dimir, Azorius, Selesnya, Boros, Izzet, Golgari, Rakdos.
The Gruul Clans represent wild, untamed freedom. They blend the fiery passion of Red with the vigor of Green. Together, they make for hard-hitting decks that look to overrun their opponents by sheer force. There are a variety of different directions that these can be built, some stronger than others. Wizards of the Coast has brought a host of new Commanders to Gruul, but is it enough to help it stand out in the crowd?
Aggressive Creatures: These decks are the place to play beefy, aggressive creatures. These are the kinds of things that don’t care about the tokens that Bitterblossom puts out, or the Solemn Simulacrum that your opponent will block with. Gruul wants to play Savage Ventmaw or Quartzwood Crasher, and turn them sideways until the job is done. Few color pairs come close to the raw power that Red and Green creatures put up when they work together. This is bolstered by the fact that both colors can ramp effectively, allowing us to get Drakuseth, Maw of Flames or Bogardan Hellkite out earlier in the game.
Gruul has plenty of ways to support creature decks, such as Rhythm of the WIld, Garruk’s Uprising, and Guardian Project. With three opponents to handle, these enchantments help keep our creatures from going to waste. We also have support creatures to ensure that the bigger ones land, such as Vexing Shusher, Prowling Serpopard, and Gaea’s Herald.
Ramp: These days, it goes without saying that Green is good at ramp. Three Visits was recently reprinted, joining the likes of Rampant Growth, Farseek, and Nature’s Lore for two mana. There are long standing staples like Cultivate and Wood Elves, and many better versions of Explosive Vegetation. There are so many effects that put physical lands into play that one could make the case that you don’t need mana rocks like Talisman of Impulse or Gruul Signet. Sure, other colors can play Sol Ring and Izzet Signet on turn one, but that’s more of an exception and not the rule.
Red has brought a variety of new tools in recent years, such as Dockside Extortionist, Curse of Opulence, and Neheb, the Eternal. Additionally, a recent reprint of Mana Echoes means that tribal decks get powerful ramp at a better price. While these effects aren’t as methodical as those in Green, they offer explosive power for when the game gets busted wide open. That helps Gruul keep up with cards like Smothering Tithe or Crypt Ghast. If you’re willing to risk it, Overabundance gets a game going, and going fast.
Through a thoughtful balance of these effects, Gruul decks have no shortage of options. Their mana resources can get as big as the beefy creatures they churn out.
Board Wipes: Gruul is fantastic at blowing things up en masse, namely for noncreature permanents. Bane of Progress, Vandalblast, and Shatterstorm are three standbys in this department. While Red brings most of the artifact destruction, Green can handle enchantments very easily. They can play cards like Back to Nature or Serene Heart, crippling an Enchantress deck for little investment. In a format with a lot of noncreature permanents, such as mana rocks, this gives Gruul a good way of resetting the board.
They’re a bit more challenged in handling creatures, though. Nevertheless, Gruul decks work with damaged-based sweepers like Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, or even Firespout. Red does most of the heavy lifting here, since Green cards like Whirlwind are too narrow for widespread play.
Card Draw: For most of Magic’s history, Red and Green have been lackluster at drawing cards. However, they’ve gone a full 180 in recent years, and have plenty of options to choose from. This is largely in part to the push we’ve seen on Green, giving it access to all sorts of effects it used to struggle at. Most of the card draw options in Gruul come from the past few years, such as Guardian Project, The Great Henge, and Valakut Exploration. Green cares about having sizable creatures, and Red grants “impulsive” card draw effects that last until the end of turn. With both colors bringing aggressive creatures to the table, the effects pair nicely.
Format Identity and Depth of Commander Choices: These two topics go hand-in-hand, so it makes sense to talk about them together. We’re looking at a sort of “chicken or the egg” scenario, because both problems influence the other.
If you look at the most popular commanders for Gruul, there are some telling signs. There are a variety of archetypes to choose from, but they are carried on the shoulders of one or two commanders. The top theme for Gruul is Lands, but the list of viable options is short. This continues on down the line for other Gruul archetypes, like +1/+1 Counters or Tokens. On the contrary, you can look at the likes of Dimir Mill, Simic +1/+1 Counters, and Orzhov Lifegain to see what it looks like when there’s a concentrated effort to give those themes a home.
There are other areas of Gruul that were born from the existence of a leading commander. For instance, Thromok, the Insatiable, Borborygmos Enraged, and Rosheen Meanderer. These all make for quirky strategies that heavily feature the commander. However, we don’t see many things like these decks, when we venture out into the greater landscape of choices.
This raises a pair of conflicting questions. Are there not many choices in Gruul because of the lack in format identity? Or, are the lack of choices causing Gruul to not find a real footing? On one hand, you have Commanders that make up almost an entire archetype by themselves, without many other Gruul alternatives. On the other hand, you have a situation where Gruul goes in a bunch of different directions, but fails to land on and develop a specific archetype.
FIghting for a Spot at the Table: As it stands now, the most popular Gruul themes are swallowed up by other more popular commanders and color combos. For instance, Lands decks are being carried by Third Era “Value Engine” commanders, such as Lord Windgrace, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, and Tatyova, Benthic Druid. Meanwhile, we’ve established that +1/+1 counters are largely a Simic thing, and Token decks trend towards Selesnya. This can leave Gruul decks out in the lurch, when there are other decks doing what they do, but better.
Common Commanders and Archetypes
Big Creature Aggro: This is arguably the hallmark Gruul archetype. The playstyle is straightforward and concise: ramp a lot, play big creatures, and attack with them. While you can play creatures in any color combination, Gruul blends the best of both worlds for a true beatdown strategy. Green and Red are known for having cost-efficient creatures that also have potent ETB effects; think Dockside Extortionist, Bane of Progress, and Reclamation Sage. Xenagos, God of Revels, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, and Nikya of the Old Ways are three popular commanders to choose, each with a different way of approaching the same challenge. How effective they are can depend on the local metagame, although Xenagos’ indestructibility makes him a perennial favorite in this category.
This also lends itself to a “Creatures matter, but noncreature spells don’t” theme. From the command zone, Nikya brings prizes, and Ruric Thar brings punishment. I’m curious to see if this gets explored more in coming sets, since it looks like the start of a new direction for Gruul.
Lands: These are typically big mana decks that aim to put a lot of lands into play. They also tend to use and abuse Landfall cards, such as Moraug, Fury of Akoum or Avenger of Zendikar. This is backed up by the usual suite of Green ramp cards, such as Oracle of Mul Daya, Lotus Cobra, and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove. As for commanders, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Phylath, World Sculptor, and Borborygmos Enraged are popular choices. These decks tend to be quiet in the early turns, but then get explosive once they can start putting multiple lands out per turn. If they resolve a Scapeshift, Boundless Realms, or Reshape the Earth, then odds are good that the game is ending very soon. For players that like combo decks, these can provide a similar feeling of “going off” without needing cards like Thassa’s Oracle or Tendrils of Agony.
Tokens: These decks are similar to their Selesnya counterparts, with some key differences. While they aim to go wide with a ton of creatures, their payoffs look different. Selesnya decks play anthems like Cathars’ Crusade and Collective Blessing to grow their ranks. Meanwhile, Gruul token decks like damage-based effects, like Purphorous, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, and Warstorm Surge. This allows token decks to be more about creating tokens themselves, instead of attacking with them. Since they don’t need to win through combat damage, the play style is nonlinear. Having multiple paths to victory, instead of just one, can keep us coming back to a deck instead of getting bored of it. As for popular token commanders, you could look at Thromok, the Insatiable, Grand Warlord Radha, or Wort, the Raidmother.
Tribal: Werewolves and Dragons and Hydras, oh my! There aren’t many creature types that fall firmly into Gruul, but these three are at the top of the list. Dragons and Hydras fit nicely in the Gruul ethos, since they’re both splashy, high-impact creature types. Atarka, World Render and Rosheen Meanderer head up Dragons and Hydras, respectively.
Meanwhile, Werewolves is still looking for a worthwhile commander. Technically, you can run Ullrich of the Krallenhorde, but he offers zero tribal synergy. When I wrote about the wolf pack back in August, we talked about why Ullrich falls short. I remain optimistic for the upcoming Innistrad set a year from now, confident that it will finally bring us the Werewolf commander we’ve been asking for.
Other Oddities: Scroll through the Gruul page on EDHrec, and you’ll see all sorts of curiosities. We have everything from fight effect decks with Neyith of the Dire Hunt, to “Kicker Matters” with Hallar, the Firefletcher, to +1/+1 Combo with Grumgully, the Generous. Other players are churning out X spells with Rosheen Meanderer, looking to go bigger than anyone else at the table. Finally, some folks just love watching Tahngarth, First Mate chaotically rack up commander damage. There’s a lot to find in Gruul, if you’re willing to get into the weeds.
Gruul is a powerful color pair to play, but it needs to find more of a clear identity in the format. It can be open-ended for players that want more of a blank canvas to create with, but others might want more direction in their strategy. Since both Green and Red have gone through drastic changes in the past few years, these growing pains may be subtly showing up in their legendary creatures. Time heals all, though, so I’m confident that Gruul will get a more defined place in Commander. It’s getting a lot of market share gobbled up by Simic and Jund decks, which presents a unique challenge for Wizards of the Coast. In the meantime, we’ll keep happily smashing things.

Top 10 Strongest Gruul Commanders In Magic: The Gathering
By Paul DiSalvo
Traditionally toting large and aggressive creatures, Gruul has a lot to offer in Magic: The Gathering.
Traditionally toting large and aggressive creatures, the red and white color pairing of Gruul has had a storied lineage throughout Magic's history. Within two of the most aggressive and creature-centric colors are numerous strategies and mechanics, many of which possess a corresponding Commander.

From elves, to burn, to mana-ramp, Gruul contains more depth than some may believe. So today we're going to look through the wide selection of legendary creatures that Gruul have to offer.
10 Ulasht, The Hate Seed
When it comes to powerful commanders, flexibility is often key. From its power and toughness to its activated abilities, Ulasht, the Hate Seed is a commander chock-full of adaptability and flexibility.
Though Ulasht is a 0/0 like many other hydras, it enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it for each green creature and each red creature you control, meaning each creature you control that is both of these colors supplies Ulasht with two counters.
While having a large creature in the form of Ulasht is well and good, Ulasht allows for its controller to utilize it's counters in a variety of ways, removing them from Ulasht to deal direct damage to creatures, or to grow one's army by creating 1/1 Saproling tokens.
9 Mina And Denn, Wildborn
In a format with larger life totals and deck sizes that result in longer games, the ability to accelerate ones strategy is often integral to claiming victory. The elvish siblings Mina and Denn, Wildborn, encapsulate this sentiment, allowing their controller the ability play an additional land on each of their turns. Once they hit the table, this duo often can double your momentum moving forward, allowing for more impactful spells to be cast in the game earlier than regularly expected.

This extra land capability pairs well with their second ability, which allows them to bestow trample upon any of your creatures at the expense of returning a land you control to your hand.
8 Thromok The Insatiable
Gruul is a color identy that is often associated with the biggest and baddest creatures that Magic has to offer, and Thromok the Insatiable is a perfect example of why.
Possessing the devour mechanic, Thromok allows you to sacrifice any amount of creatures when it enters the battlefield., putting a specified amount of +1/+1 counters on it for each sacrificed creature. However, while most creatures with devour would supply one or two counters per creature, Thromok devours X, where X is equal to the number of creatures devoured. This means that upon devouring four creatures, Thromok would enter as 16/16, or if Thromok devoured ten creatures, it would appear as a whopping 100/100. When paired with a means of dealing damage equal to a creature's power directly like "Fling," Thromok can close out a game in an instant.
7 Grand Warlord Radha
While one of the characterizing elements of green is its ability to produce mana, one of red's characterizing traits is its aggressiveness and desire to constantly attack.
RELATED: Top 10 Strongest Mono-Green Commanders in Magic: The Gathering
A relatively straightforward commander, Grand Warlord Radha is a creature who marries fundamental traits of green and red together to form a card that is unapologetically Gruul. As long as a player controls Radha, whenever they attack, they add an amount of green and red mana equal to the amount of creatures they attacked with, ramping in what is quite possibly the most offensive and aggressive way imaginable.
6 Wort, The Raidmother
While Gruul is often influenced by green's focus on creature's and lands, Wort the Raidmother is a Gruul commander that hones in on red's strength regarding instants and sorceries.
Wort provides all instants and sorceries its controller casts with conspire, meaning that by tapping two untapped creatures, instants and sorceries can be copied. This is an incredibly potent ability that has the capability to double the value of highly impactful spells. This ability is also given the green light in regards to its use as soon as Wort is cast, as upon entering the battlefield, she creates two goblin tokens that can be used to activate conspire.
5 Klothys, God Of Destiny
The most recent addition to Theros's pantheon of gods, Klothys, God of Destiny is a god whose strength lies in its subtlety. As Commander is a highly political multiplayer format in which the will of multiple players can often decide the fate of a common enemy, it is not uncommon for a single powerful card to draw the ire of the remainder of a Commander table.
RELATED: Top 10 Strongest Mono-Red Commanders In Magic: The Gathering
While many other gods of Theros possess abilities with terrifying and destructive capabilities, Klothys's strength is more nuanced. Each turn Klothys allows its controller to exile any card from a graveyard, interfering with opponent's graveyard related strategies. If the exiled card was a land, Klothys ramps, producing a single red or green mana. Otherwise, Klothys deals two damage to each opponent and gains its controller two life. While these benefits may appear minor, they add up over the course of the game to great effect. This subtlety paired with Klothys's low mana cost and indestructibility make it a reliable choice for a Gruul commander.
4 Nikya Of The Old Ways
While Nikya of the Old Ways may be an aggressively narrow commander, what she does well, few can do better.
Firstly, Nikya's strength lies in her ability to effectively double all mana produced by lands you control. This ability is not to be underestimated, and it quickly propels a Nikya player's resources into the stratosphere, leaving other players in the dust when it comes to available mana.
However, Nikya is hindered by a very straightforward restriction: once Nikya is in play, her controller cannot cast non-creature spells. This means that a Nikya deck can more often than not, only cast creature spells. While this means that a Nikya player won't have access to a great deal of powerful cards, their excessive amounts of mana will allow them to play enormous threatening creatures at an alarming rate.
3 Xenagos, God Of Revels
Another God of Theros, Xenagos, God of Revels's power is much more inherently clear than the previously mentioned Klothys. Possessing the trademark indestructibility found on all Theros Gods, Xenagos has the ability to double the power of any creature you control each turn, also providing that creature with haste.
RELATED: Top 10 Strongest Mono-White Commanders in Magic: The Gathering
This ability allows for the quip weaponizing of many powerful creatures, especially those with double strike. There are few cards that are capable of making already potent cards yet even more threatening to a player's opponents than Xenagos.
2 Ruric Thar, The Unbowed
Many of the most powerful commanders are those who are capable of accruing a great deal of value with little to no effort on the end of their respective controller.
While a 6/6 with vigilance is nothing to scoff at, it's Ruric Thar. the Unbowed's second ability that puts him this high on this list. Whenever a player casts a noncreature spell, Ruric Thar deals six damage to that spell's caster. This damage can accumulate extremely quickly, and can often deter players from casting numerous impactful spells out of precaution of Ruric Thar.
1 Omnath, Locus Of Rage
Similar to the aforementioned Ruric Thar, Omnath, Locus of Rage is a commander who creates great sums of value by its controller simply playing the game the way they already would've had it not been present. However, while Ruric Thar is heavily dependent on the spells being cast by your opponents to be of specific types, Omnath's ability is based off of the cards that you cast, putting its triggers entirely within your control.
Whenever a land enters the battlefield under the control of an Omnath player, they create a 5/5 elemental token. These tokens are quite substantial and can be utilized in a variety of ways.
However, this is not all that Omnath contributes to a given game plan. Whenever Omnath or another elemental dies, Omnath's controller deals three damage to a target of their choice. This ability paired with a sacrifice outlet or even a board wipe can often be a deciding factor in a game of Commander.

Commander best gruul
Sometimes, a deck list is a finely tuned machine from top to bottom, with a commander that plays perfectly into every aspect of the list and vice-versa. Other times, a Commander deck is a pile of cards you like, helmed by a legendary you enjoy in the colors you feel like playing.
This is definitely the latter – a Gruul stompy list packed to the brim with Dinosaurs and cards to lean into them, while eschewing the typical white in favor of a somewhat more streamlined build, all helmed by Grand Warlord Radha. Sometimes you just want to slam big beaters down and rumble, and this is just the list to scratch that itch.
The Dominaria version of Radha does a great job helming any Gruul deck that just wants to turn creatures sideways. She’s at her best when there are plenty of creatures to attack with and plenty of outlets for the mana she generates.
This deck doesn’t leverage both to quite their fullest potential, but that doesn’t make her any less useful. She still frees up your mana to advance the board while either jumping you ahead a bit or allowing you to fuel other abilities at the same time.

Buy This Deck
This deck is simple and straightforward. There aren’t a whole lot of noncreature spells, focusing instead on Dinosaurs and other efficient or synergistic beaters to show up alongside them. It’s convenient that a majority of the dinos are, themselves, pretty solid at doing just that.
Pretty much every role the deck would like filled, from protection to removal to card advantage, is able to be filled by creatures first and foremost, ensuring your board is always full to utilize the Warlord’s mana production. The removal options, in particular, skew a bit toward utilizing the fight mechanic thanks to its synergy with all the different enrage effects in the deck.
At its core though, there isn’t anything fancy with the list. It smashes with big dinosaurs and other beasts early and often.
Quartzwood Crasher is a prime example – a slightly undercosted beater with trample that hits hard and starts creating other big dinos to join in the fun. Garruk’s Uprising plays particularly nice with the Crasher, ensuring everyone has trample to make the biggest tokens you can and to draw some cards off them too.
It doesn’t stop there, though. Burning Sun’s Avatar and Territorial Allosaurus are just a few of the many massive minions you can utilize to clear the way for your squad, picking off utility creatures or pesky flyers, whatever you just want gone.
Though, that isn’t to say there aren’t a few knocking around for pure beef purposes. Ghalta, Primal Hunger is just that: big, hungry, easy to play out very quickly and above all, ready to hit faces.
The prehistoric bend to the deck means that a huge portion of your creatures have some form of enrage.
Apex Altisaur can just go ballistic on a board of small utility creatures, chaining the fights together as long as you need and leaving behind a huge threat.
While it’s not as targeted, Silverclad Ferocidons’s ability can start to really turn the screws on the rest of the table once a few activations go off.
Ripjaw Raptor is a more efficient beater that can range all the way from replacing itself up to drawing you handfuls of cards over the course of a game. Even at the low end, Ranging Raptors help ramp you into your bigger threats, Snapping Sailback can get huge and so on.
While the deck has a few ways of just spreading damage around to trigger enrage, there’s also a swath of fight effects to use enrage while also removing threats or utility creatures.
Arni Slays the Troll rolls a few effects on top of the fight, while Savage Stomp tacks on a counter and a cost reduction if one of your dinos is the one getting in the fray.
Domri, Anarch of Bolas adds a little power to your creatures, some ramp with the ability to force creatures through countermagic and a semi-repeatable fight effect.
For repeatable fights, Ulvenwald Tracker really takes the cake, offering one at instant speed every turn.
With all of this rumbling going on, it only makes sense to take advantage of that as much as possible.
Neyith of the Dire Hunt is a Jumpstart legendary that helps keep your hand stocked as you fight, while also having plenty of synergistic targets for her other ability. Doubling the power of an Etali, Primal Storm and rumbling in while forcing a block can just be gravy.
Foe-Razer Regent throws his own weight around a bit, but also rewards all your fighting dinos with some extra counters at the beginning of the next end step. This can really stack up, especially on something like your Apex Altisaur, who can trigger it multiple times.
Rite of Passage doesn’t buff as much, but does trigger immediately, on all damage. This can get downright out of hand in no time.
With all these big ole beasties running roughshod over your opponents’ faces, Grand Warlord Radha should be pumping respectable amounts of mana into your pool every combat step.
Something like Wolfbriar Elemental is a great place to dump a bunch of that, resulting in a whole bunch of bodies to generate even more mana next time around.
Ursapine and, to a lesser extent, Nylea, God of the Hunt, are some of my favorite places to use Radha’s mana. The threat of activation alone with either of them puts opponents into tight places when trying to work out how to block. Often, you won’t even need to actually use them and can instead use that mana to develop your board further and leave lands up to protect your crew.
Finally, once your board is sufficiently built up, Hellkite Charger can take you right over the top, feeding into multiple or even endless attack steps.
Season with a bit of ramp, from a cadre of mana dorks to Sol Ring, and add in a little bit of extra removal and ways to keep your team safe, and the deck list all comes together. It might not be the most efficient or effective use of the commander or of the creatures in the list, but it’s great for a fun time at a more mid-level table and that’s all you need sometimes. So, grab some dinos, set them loose on your foes, and ride into battle with Radha!
