Deathrite Shaman Discussion

hyperlocke on Ground Seal interaction?

A card only has (a) target(s) if the word "target" appears in its rules text.

Ground Seal stops things like Eternal Witness and Deathrite Shaman, because they require targets.

Praetor's Counsel has an effect on all cards in your graveyard. It doesn't require targets, so Ground Seal does nothing against it.

@Icbrgr: Good luck with this deck! It sounds like fun!

I was brewing 4C Land Destruction for a while and really liked playing it, but then they banned Deathrite Shaman.

That reminds me, does your deck benefit much if you added mana acceleration, like Golgari Signet, Mind Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, or Talisman of Dominance?

The only other suggestion I can think of is adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoths to the deck so that you can tap your Ghost Quarters and Tectonic Edges for . It also lets you play cards like Mutavault or Stalking Stones more efficiently. It also makes Mutilate and Corrupt insane. I think even with a limited budget, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is the one card definitely worth investing in.

Oh, and Deathrite Shaman is a must have too. Lol, sorry for blowing up the comments here.

ekienhol No sliver hive because it gets very awkward if I draw a hand of Mutavaults, Sliver Hive, Cavern of Souls, and spells like Brainstorm, Swords to Plowshares, or Sylvan Library, and doesn't play too well with Deathrite Shaman. Overall, the deck wants to use fetch lands to shuffle away brainstorms and to act as ramp fodder for DRS.

I would also recommend including more card draw spells, because you run a high number of dredge cards, so multiple triggers would be helpful. Probably Sultai Charm, Ancient Excavation, and Fact or Fiction would be your best options. Charm also has the additional benefit of being versatile spot removal.

You also seem pretty light on ramp, so I would include the following: Sakura-Tribe Elder, Deathrite Shaman, and Birds of Paradise.

Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are pretty common standards for green mana ramping

Far Wanderings is HUGE value in a deck that is likely to have a graveyard when it shows up

Burgeoning could be a good effect for you if you get the draw engine going

Rampaging Baloths is another landfall monster

Courser of Kruphix can help you find more lands to benefit from your commander's ability.

Scavenging Ooze and Deathrite Shaman are great utility cards. Ability to mess with others' graveyards can really come in handy

Wave of Vitriol can be a nice card to run depending on how nasty your meta is

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician can help you get cards back from the yard. As can Phyrexian Reclamation

Overall looks like a fun deck to play. Hopefully you can find something useful out of the above suggestions!
