Baru, Fist of Krosa Discussion

Maybe Faith of the Devoted, Archfiend of Ifnir Wandering Champion, Baru, Fist of Krosa or Wolf of Devil's Breach but I may be only saying silly things, I'm not accustomed to discard, aggresive decks.

Seems alright. Few cards seem a bit... odd or like you were trying to replace cards?

I'd recommend removing the following:

Judging upon you creature base, you don't have much of a win-con. You have tons of 1 and 2 drops which will help Yisan trigger multiple times in one turn, but no end result. The only two I'm really seeing are Craterhoof Behemoth and Shaman of Forgotten Ways. While both are good, Craterhoof seems moot since I imagine your board being blown up before getting the chance to attack with anything besides him. If you trigger Shaman early on, that can easily be a game-ender, but what happens if someone uses Swords to Plowshares on it before you get the chance? Not trying to be mean, or pick you deck apart, but unless I'm missing something your deck has a solid premise with nowhere to go. Most Yisan deck's I've seen or played against create some form of stax, or each creature he cheats into play has a prominent or dominating effect on the board/game. Being fast as hell feels super awesome until you have nothing to do, but can't win.

Some cards I'd recommend are below and some will hopefully help abuse Yisan's verse counter-curve:

So many cards... Point being, ramping into Yisan and triggering his ability is awesome, but a moot point if you can't hit anything that does something. But again, I could be completely missing the point of what you're going for, and if so I apologize for the wall of text. It's your deck and you are free to do with it as you please, I just wish you a grand time of obliterating your games.

Baru, Fist of Krosa synergizes well with Nissa's search effect. As does Budoka Gardener. Kamahl, Fist of Krosa may be pushing your budget, as would Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer.

Baru, Fist of Krosa is not needed in this deck.

Garruk, Primal Hunter tokens are showing as 5/5 Wurms instead of 6/6 Wurms in right side info bar. It also doesn't show Baru, Fist of Krosa's X/X Wurm tokens.

When you have Baru, Fist of Krosa in a deck, it says the Token he makes in the sidebar is a 5/5 Wurm when it's really a X/X Wurm. Garruk, Primal Hunter's 6/6 Wurm Tokens do not show up at all. If you playtest a deck with these cards though, it does recognise you can make these tokens.

I'm going to pull some ideas from my Karametra deck which is very similar but my general is a ramp engine. Not all of these suggestions may be optimal. Keeping budget in mind:

Creature Based Card Draw

Enchantment Based Card Draw

Artifact Based Card Draw

Trample Enabler
