Ghave Guru of Spores: The Savior of the Fungal Forest

Ghave’s Story:

When monsoons devastated the land of Drakkus, the herds drowned and the harvests washed away. The humans there were forced to the fungal forests to find sustenance, and find it they did—in the form of the mycoids and their saproling offspring. What the humans saw as salvation, the mycoids called genocide, and they declared war on the invading mammals. Mages tore through the sporeborn troops with fire and steel. Only when the mycoid hero Ghave, Guru of Spores emerged did the tide finally turn. Gifted with mystic influence over the sporeborn, Ghave sculpted the fungal matter of his people into an ever-mutating army and reclaimed his forest home.

Ghave’s History:

Ghave the Guru of Spores was released in the Magic The Gathering Commander Deck: Counterpunch. The deck was marketed as:

Use Ghave, Guru of Spores to create a strangling tangle of vines and vegetation that will crush all who oppose you! The all-consuming power of growth turns your creatures into monstrous behemoths while Saprolings fuel your increasing might.”

This was a decent starting point for one of my favorite Commander decks I have ever built. The deck I constructed won me a series of Commander tournaments and has provided some of the most interactive games I have ever played, but the best and the most interactive games that you can get are online casino games you can info about how be the best player at https://casinoaustralia.org.

The deck was built to have a number of combos to allow me to win when the time was right.
