Beastcaller Savant Discussion

I really like this deck and I think I might build something similar since I have many of these cards, including the commander, already. If I were you though I would include more mana dorks and land enchantments currently you are only running Elvish Mystic as a manadork but you can add Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Beastcaller Savant, Zhur-Taa Druid, Sylvan Caryatid, Voyaging Satyr, Deathrite Shaman, Gyre Sage, and Arbor Elf. You can also run cards like Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Fertile Ground, Utopia Sprawl, Dictate of Karametra, and other land enchantments which interact very well with Voyaging Satyr and Arbor Elf which can untap an enchanted land. Also, with such a small number of instants and sorceries Primal Surge would destroy any opponent. You could try throwing in some removal as well such as Beast Within and cards that allow creatures to fight your opponents creatures. These can come out of nowhere and decimate your opponents thanks to Xenagos, God of Revels. these could include Epic Confrontation, Prey Upon, Nessian Wilds Ravager, Polukranos, World Eater, Pit Fight, Savage Punch, and Setessan Tactics. You shouldnt include all of these cards but go with whichever ones in each category that you like

Once again IzzetMtG, you made a great recommendation for one of my decks. Beastcaller Savant is definitely going in for testing immediately. Thanks! :)

If you're considering Bomat Courier for haste, Beastcaller Savant works as well and can power out even more creatures as well.

Zimmers_0 I was brewing a weird creature based 5 color storm deck on my phone that I should share here sometime...its built around creatures that immediately create mana. Like Beastcaller Savant, Burning-Tree Emissary, Blood Pet, Peregrine Drake, Animar, the mana reduction familiars, etc... powered by things like Recycle and Primordial Sage. Never built it though, just an unfinished deck idea... its just a list of 70-80 nonland cards currently.

I'm thinking Naya zoo/stompy has the best chances here, where Zada and Mirrorwing are value engines at the top end of the curve.

Sylvan Advocate is still legal, along with Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Bloodrage Brawler, Narnam Renegade, Beastcaller Savant, Glory-Bound Initiate, Greenwheel Liberator, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, Hidden Herbalists, Prowling Serpopard, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Honored Crop-Captain, and Samut, Voice of Dissent as a Zada enabler...you get the grind against control by Expedite-ing or Fling-ing your board in response to shenanigans, and the combat tricks ensure you have the upper hand in any combat with midrange or aggro.

Essentially, I suggest Naya because it's able to drop a meaningful creature every turn before Zada/Mirrorwing, which is what the deck needs in order to win on T5-7. It's also got a robust enough suite of instants that you can cast responsively, such as Blossoming Defense or Tandem Tactics, to be versatile against anything the opponent does to interfere. Lastly, the zoo foundations of that deck are strong enough to be a decent matchup even if the opponent manages to neuter your two build-around cards.

I wish I had a brew for you, but I literally just came up with that. I have a deck @ One-Punch Woman (Primer) that's essentially a zoo deck with Zada as one win-con, so I have some experience with her potency. I'd be happy, however, to provide feedback on any list you brew up.

Have you considered Beastcaller Savant instead of Naga Vitalist for the 2 drop mana dork? I know the only for creature spells thing sucks but you could use haste to get down another mana dork.

NIce. May i give you some ideas?

Drumhunter and Exuberant Firestoker are mana dorks that also have bonus abilities if you control anything with power bigger than 5, which is pretty easy.

Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways are the old brothers of Beastcaller Savant

Elemental Bond is a better draw engine than Sixth Sense, because is basically the enchantment version of Garruk's Packleader
