Gruul is the color pair of Red and Green in MTG


Gruul brings together the aggressiveness of red and the natural growth of Green creating the uncontrollable Gruul. Gruul is very aggressive and fast in its playstyle, focusing more on hurting other with big creatures rather than thinking and reacting to others.

Dragon tribal

Dragons, alongside Goblins, are reds primary creature types. Dragons are reds strongest creatures and most of the expansions have some kind of red dragon in them. As dragons are expensive to cast, dragon tribal decks run multiple cost reduction effects and have ways to cheat the expensive dragons on the battlefield.

As green has the best mana ramp options in the format, and the biggest creatures, too, it is only natural that big creatures / stompers decks are popular in mono green. Stomper decks have lots of ramp in them, and aim to cast big creatures to wreak havoc to the opponents.

Gruul Commanders

Xenagos, God of Revels

Xenagos is great commander for Gruul providing haste and doubling power of a single creature. The indestructible combined with being sometimes an enchantment makes Xenagos very difficult commander to deal with.

Xenagos is definitely a great Gruul commander with cEDH power level as the ceiling due to the easily achievable infinite combat steps and beating every opponent out in a single turn with combat damage.
