Garruk B. Goode

Lorwyn prerelease is over. I gotta say, I kinda hate the format. Too slow. Just ask Cannavaro. He got three draws out of four matches on yesterday's prerelease. The players were just sitting down, gathering their creatures while waiting for the rare bombs such as the incarnations or planewalkers.

Anyway, I cracked open two Mad Auntie yesterday that pushed me into goblin deck. However, the card that interests me the most is Colfenor's Plans. My inner Johnny screamed in joy when I cracked open the pack and saw the card. I put the card into the deck just for the hell of it. All of the players that I played against were shocked to see the card and commented on the drawbacks of the card. Of course, these net-deckers will put four copies of this card once every pro players put them in their decks. Anyway, Colfenor's Plan is a different story. Let's talk about the best (or second best) planeswalker in the set.

Meet Garruk Wildspeaker


What I'm gonna do now is dedicate this song to this broken card

Not in Dominaria but the plane Lorwyn,
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens,

There stood an log cabin made of earth and wood,

Where lived a planeswalker named Garruk B. Goode,

Who never ever learned to read or write so well,

But he could ride a beast token like a-ringing a bell.


Go, go! Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Garruk B. Goode!


He used to carry his big axe in a gunny sack;

Go sit beneath the tree by the boggart's pack.

Oh the goblins would see him sitting in the shade;

Calling beast tokens to crush the whole village

The kithkins passing by they would stop and say,

"Oh my, but that little planeswalker could kill!"


Go, go! Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Garruk B. Goode!


His mother told him, "Someday you will be a man,

And you will be the leader of a big old band.

Many elves coming from miles around,

To hear you play your beasts crushing them all down.

Maybe some day your name will be in lights,

Screaming 'Garruk B. Goode Tonight'!"


Go, go! Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Go, Garruk, go, go!

Garruk B. Goode!
