Emeria Shepherd Discussion

landofMordor on Mad God-Pharoah's Reanimator

Hey friend. I agree that you're better off with Red in your board, considering Cathartic Reunion and Insolent Neonate see play in Tier 2 Modern Dredge lists... In fact, considering your revisions, the non-creature suite looks pretty spot-on. Maybe cut some noncreature spells in your SB for creatures with similar effects (Fairgrounds Warden over Cast Out, for example), and maybe Haunted Dead as an additional on-theme discard engine.

Hm. Depends on how you want to play this. You can go midrange or aggro, but probably not both.

I'm personally an enormous fan of Combustible Gearhulk, especially in a deck like this with about 20% of your deck at 4 CMC=damage or higher, that ALSO doesn't mind whether the cards go to grave or to hand (since you'll just discard them). If you go this route, I'd cut all your non-Neonate creatures below CMC 4-5. You're wanting to power out the Gift until T4, and after T4 it literally doesn't matter how much your discarded cards cost, 'cuz it's a free "gift". Things that come to mind are Angel of Deliverance, Emeria Shepherd, Lightning Runner, Noosegraf Mob (which is a T5 9/9...), Regal Caracal in the SB to stabilize against aggro, Tree of Perdition (which is cute, but not bad...). Just pick your favorite.

On the other hand, you could go more aggressive, and only cast GPG late-game when you are needing more fuel. In that case, Scourge Wolf, Thraben Inspector, Fairgrounds Warden, Gifted Aetherborn, Aerial Responder, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Bomat Courier, Bloodrage Brawler are at their best, where you get to cast them twice, and the second time, they're beefy.

Either way, I'd cut Cataclysmic Gearhulk, because you can't get your tokens back, and I'd cut the creatures with the Eternalize mechanic (since they're made "balanced" with Eternalize already, they're designed to not be broken with GPG, unlike the aforementioned strategies).

Hope that helps! Again, mention me if I can be helpful to you.

This list looks sweet, even though it is very far from mine :) The World Breaker is very interesting!I miss Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Tireless Tracker, Crucible of Worlds, and the new Ramunap Excavator! Those are some of my favorites.

Since you play the Emeria Shepherd + Sakura-Tribe Elder and also have Burnished Hart you may consider running Meren of Clan Nel Toth and with him Solemn Simulacrum. You also already have the Viscera Seer and Merciless Executioner and which is great with these as well! If you go all out on this plan, you may consider Spore Frog and/or Kami of False Hope aswell. I found bot was to much so I went with the frog.

RingoDingo92 Thanks a lot for the comments/suggestions, much appreciated :)

I would love to run lantern or relic, but they're a bit out of budget. If they ever get a reprint and drop to around the $5 range, I'll likely buy a few. In general, unless it gets totally hated out, the deck tends to draw so many cards that colors aren't a huge problem. I like Farseek a lot though, I'll have to think about that one.

Pod is interesting. I'm not sure if I have a high enough creature density to support it. But the fact that I could theoretically pod in to Emeria Shepherd and then fetching a bunch of stuff back with landfall triggers is really interesting. I'm going to have to try it. Maybe as an alternative to Planar Bridge?

Do you have any suggestions for cuts for targeted removal? I'm running pretty heavy on board wipes since group hug tends to result in really wide boards. I'm not opposed to adding another one, but I'm not quite sure where it'd go.

Anyway, thank you again for the suggestions.

This looks like the right balance between gimmicky nonsense and consistency, great job! I would consider adding some evoke and evoke-like creatures like Spitebellows. for 3 mana, you get a removal and a 6 power creature that can be thrown by using brion's ability when evoke's trigger in on the stack. The same applies to champion triggers, such as the one of Nova Chaser. This last card let you keep your "sacrifice at the end of the turn" elementals (which can later be thrown) or, if needed, can be casted on a brion-only board and thrown right away.Also, recursion cards like Emeria Shepherd or even Emeria, The Sky Ruin may turn out to be useful in situations where more gas is necessary.

I had a similar deck that had blink synergies for value but could also combo off. Some combinations of Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Saffi Eriksdotter, Sun Titan, and Fiend Hunter along with a sac outlet let you go infinite

As for cuts, I think you need more ramp and fewer high drops. Try Farhaven Elf. It also might be worth running Emeria Shepherd as it's good on its own and goes 'infinite' with Sakura-Tribe Elder or farhaven + sac outlet.

Maybe run Tezzeret the Seeker to -4 to grab birthing pod/panharmonicon bc of how broken they are

DrawStep on Karador, Ghost Chieftain

sorry, been offline for awhile, i run a more land-graveyard centric karador then most people, so when i hit my Splendid Reclamation + Eternal Witness i go for the Squandered Resources Emeria Shepherd + any sac outlet = infinite mana, and with karador , the pretty much spells a dead player late game, its super jank, but who will get mad at that infinite combo? but it is real aggresive, i get your point. .. ill try getting my list up sometime in the next few days so you can see it
