    Tarmogoyf is a necessary evil for Survival. The deck doesn't need it to be a beater (because it has like 20 other creatures to do that job). The only reason Tarmogoyf is in the deck is because it is the best answer to *drum roll* Tarmogoyf. The fourth Goyf just takes up space that is better used for extra utility. Three still gives you random "Oops I drew goyf and you have no answer" draws. This build of Survival is not a tempo deck or an aggro deck (like most that run goyf). It is a control deck.

    The combo and tempo builds builds of Survival (Elf and Bant respectively) run four goyfs.
