Fauna Shaman Discussion

3InchMeatMonster Yes you can! If you look in the previous comments, someone asks me something similar. Also, you can cut Gaea's Cradle, the expeditions/foils for the regular versions, there are cheaper versions of Land Tax and Linvala, Keeper of Silence, put in Fauna Shaman for Survival of the Fittest, cut Serra's Sanctum, etc. There are other cards to consider if you look at my list of cuts in the primer

Play all of them, trust me. When I played Selvala I kid you not that I won more games off of the back of Praetor's Counsel than any other card in my deck.

Primal Command is pretty bad in EDH. It's a fine card overall, but is just generally used for decks on a budget because they can't afford a $50 Survival of the Fittest. I would also cut down on lands and up the ramp count, whether that's with creatures or extra land effects like Exploration and Burgeoning, and that should also allow you to add in Garruk Wildspeaker and Fauna Shaman, in addition to the EDH staple Vedalken Orrery. The card is good, but it is easily best in Blue and Green decks, and your deck happens to be one of those two colors. Genesis Wave is also pretty spicy, but your deck doesn't include filthy amounts of ramp yet so that inclusion is up to you. Staff of Domination also seems pretty weak, as your deck might make mana, but it doesn't make THAT much mana. Staff+Yissan is a 10 mana combo, and overall just isn't worth it imo. Thragtusk is more of a std/mdn/lgc card than an EDH one, and seems pretty underwhelming overall.

Cool deck, just needs some fine tuning.

Okay, so I am a huge Elf tribal fan. What exactly are you wanting to do with this deck? As it stands, it's consistency is not very tuned.

Here's a suggestion


What this setup does is pretty nifty, it's a super powerful counters combo. You use Llanowar Elves for ramp, and since this is a relatively low CMC deck structure you can use it to kick Joraga Warcaller more easily. You use Metallic Mimic as an Elf tribal, giving your Joraga Warcaller an automatic counter when he comes into play (you can kick for extra). Joraga Warcaller buffs other elves for the counters that on him, and they all already receive an extra +1/+1 counter from Metallic Mimic. Then, you use Imperious Perfect as another Elf lord, who also can create Elf tokens. Making a single Elf token with this entire combo average at a 5/5 Elf creature on early turns. Even earlier with more ramp, which you can add into the spells. Ezuri, Renegade Leader offers utility for the Elves, he can regenerate them. Then, you have Fauna Shaman who can Tutor out creatures to set up the combos. Lastly, Immaculate Magistrate who is your end game and win condition, she can make your elves HUGE. Just add trample.

Sorcery/ Instants

The exact numbers for these are up to you, and you can add in other cards too. What this package offers though is incredible utility and damage prevention.

Let me know what you think, and if there is a budget you're trying to stick to.

Nissa Revane and Nissa's Chosen is also a decent substitute card choice.

Ink-Fusion Thanks heaps dude, appreciate it! If I get my hands on a Kokusho, the Evening Star or Fauna Shaman I'll definitely replace Brawn

Maybe take out Brawn, trample I don't think is super relevant in a Meren deck. Also Fauna Shaman has done great things for me. Gets something to my graveyard to bring back and finds whatever creature I need. Your list is pretty tight though, it's hard to find things to take out. +1 from me .

skoobysnackz yeah, one of the main problems I've been running into is lack of big impactful creatures to tutor with cards like Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest. As for the choice between the mana doublers, I much prefer Mana Reflection due to it affecting creatures and rocks as well, both of which I run quite alot of in the deck and they go infinite with Paradox Engine quite a bit. Thank you very much!

Overrun is a really good card. Omnath, Locus of Mana could get really big in this deck and help you save mana. Copperhorn Scout will untap all your mana guys so you can get double mana out of them. Joraga Treespeaker, all elfs tap for two mana. Craterhoof Behemoth will be a win con. Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen is another +1/+1 for all your elfs. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is really good if you put omnath in the deck or some other big cards. The last card that I really like is Fauna Shaman, you can get whichever creature you need on turn two.

Hi there! This is nice. You got a lot of mana generators, though, and Fauna Shaman, which lets you look for any creature, but the only big, high-mana threat you have is Vorapede. I'd suggest either getting rid of some mana generators, or add more high-mana creatures so you can fully take advantage of that mana/card tutor base.
