Animist's Awakening Discussion

thewyzman on Tatyova, Land-Matters

Inspired, I finished my basic build to get me to the table, Tilt for Tat. Admittedly, my list isn't streamlined, and really lacks purpose other than to interact with others and grind out value in mid-range fashion, maybe land a nice C'hoof or something... or build up a fat Chasm Skulker and turn it sideways. I just recently acquired Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar , so there's always that, once I find a spot. Anyhoo, I'm with ya on finding a balance between land grabs and utility cards. The nicest thing about Tat is that she's not a board threat, so she's relatively low on the threat assessment pole, so she survives MUCH longer than my other commanders! .. and drawing cards while gaining life makes grinding it out feel that much better.

Suggestions: Replace Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse with Bant Panorama and another panorama with green or blue, like Jund or Grixis. You still get the double-landfalls, but you can use the panoramas immediately for mana, and just sac them when you need. Also, both Animist's Awakening and Splendid Reclamation were nearly orgasmic when I played them last week (maybe because it followed an opposing hand dump from a discard deck).

triproberts12 - Thanks for the advice!

Oh man, I forgot about mana doublers. Definitely finding a spot for those.

Pir's Whim could be cool, I didn't realize you could find ANY land. Do you think it would replace Tempt with Discovery , or should I keep both?

Yeah, maybe Collective Voyage could replace Animist's Awakening . It would definitely be more consistent and give that early game boost.

I have Sunstone in there. I know it's redundant, but I think I like the redundancy. I want people to know they shouldn't try attacking haha

multimedia Thank you for the tips. To answer some of your questions

Land/ Ramp- people have told me i have to few lands, with too few ramps, I get that a lot. In playing people I actually haven't had any trouble with mana surprisingly. I do have 13 ramps, and 4 that turn all my lands into multiple colors... Chromatic Lantern , Riftstone Portal , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , and Mycosynth Lattice (Mycosynth lattice is a funny one that allows me to destroy everyones lands). I should still probably add Sol Ring like you said, it seems to be a staple and pretty good. There is mostly basics because well not just blood moon but i have a combo in the deck Scouting Trek + Animist's Awakening that allows me to pull all my basic lands out at once, and untapped. Could be a good combo or not it really is up to personal perspective i guess?

I like the idea of mana dorks, I just sac everything so i don't use them. Mostly i try to have every card in the deck have a double use.. at least trying.

Deathrite Shaman I just like this card and should add it you are right. Eladamri's Call I am not actually aware of why i haven't included this in the Deck its a cheap tutor. Scavenging Ooze I don't know why this isn't in the deck. Procrastination i guess? ha it's a killer card.

These are just some reasonings behind what i do if you have any feedback on the reasonings i am more than happy to have an open mind. Im all eyes. I would like to know also what you would have cut.

Hey Matt,

Another list I'm in love with that I find out is by you.

Got a couple cards I'm curious about

Hour of Promise - 2 of any land lets us fetch up our strong utility lands (valakut, kessig wolf run)

Also this might be too meme-y but what about Repercussion . It seems like at least something to think about when you are running 13 or 20 damage board clears. Repercercussion + Star or Blasphemous can make for some gross things. (I know this one's a bit of a stretch given your 'don't play permanents' policy...however, it does give you a way to nuke a creature while still damaging it's controller.)

Scapeshift makes an interesting combo with Valakut as well. Sacrifice your lands to bring out valakut+mountains for an X based nuke spells where you change lands in play to lands from your deck. (Which gets them out of your deck for more live draws)

Animist's Awakening spell mastery is super easy to attain in this deck. Brings any land into play and we love copying X spells right? With a nice enough X and a big enough hit you most likely could follow this up with more ramp.

Collective Unconscious 1 more mana than shamanic revalation but still a good effect for draw in a token deck.

Treacherous Terrain it's no X spell, but it hits everyone for a decent chunk, especially when copied and combos with..

Tempt with Discovery if everyone in a 4 player pod says yes, and it's copied... you come out with 8 lands while giving the table 6, spread across 3 players. Grab that Valakut+a bunch of mountains and have fun :D (Worth note: My meta doesn't play with any 'must destroy' lands because we are like a 30-40% power level meta... so it might just be better for me as a meta call)

Pir's Whim honestly one of my favourite green cards. Ramp 2 of any land, destroy 6 artifact/enchants for 4 mana? Seems good. (Can also be used to buy some political favors for ramping another player.)

Wild Guess Tormenting voice #2 (slightly more restrictive casting cost)

Goblin Offensive just another X token win card (admittedly probably not as good as firecat blitz or tempt with vengeance but still a good way to gum up the ground)

I think that's probably enough things to think about for now haha.

I would cut Mind's Eye and Seer's Sundial for Elemental Bond and Rishkar's Expertise .

Ulamog's Crusher for Ulvenwald Hydra . Grunn, the Lonely King for Whiptongue Hydra . Scute Mob for Managorger Hydra .

Sylvan Awakening for Heroic Intervention . Don't know what to cut for Inspiring Call .

Probably Seek the Horizon for Animist's Awakening .

Also Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is a better version of Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer .

Keep in mind these are just cutting suggestions and I never played with your deck. I could be that some cuts are really good cards in your deck and I don't know it because I did not play with your deck.

Hey, I love hydra theme decks. I build one myself. Here the link if you want to check it out: Hydra Warlord.

I think Ulvenwald Hydra , Primordial Hydra , Managorger Hydra and Whiptongue Hydra are also great hydras which will fit in your deck.

Rishkar's Expertise , Hunter's Prowess and Elemental Bond would be great card draw spells in this deck.

Animist's Awakening would also be a great fit for your deck because you run so many lands.

Heroic Intervention and Inspiring Call are great cards to protect your board. With so many big creatures a board wipe will come sooner then later.
