Fauna Shaman Discussion
1 day ago
You've created an interesting deck here. You've got some nice draw and tutor options to get the combo cards you need to pull off a win. I would like to offer some suggestions on this front. I was wondering if you had considered to add or use Fauna Shaman, Ring of Three Wishes or Scroll Rack instead of some of the options you are currently using. Keep up the great deck-brewing.

ZendikariWol I have previously used Fauna Shaman, Merciless Executioner, and Strionic Resonator, but I removed them to keep on the side for redundancy if necessary. This is a low CMC combo deck and the cards you have suggested don't necessarily help me win in any way; Dark Confidant is fine with such low CMCS and I ramp with elves and am not focused on lands. I also do not generally have problems reanimating what I want when I want it, and I can kill very fast if left unchecked, even on a few lands. However, thank you for the suggestions! I am always open to hearing what others like to use in their builds. Meren is personally my favorite commander and my favorite kind of deck to play.

So 1) I have to give props to a good ol' queen reference. 2) your deck is markedly more tier than mine so I won't drop the list, there are a few cards in it you could use. Viridian Emissary is great ramp, Primal Druid isn't bad. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is freaking amazing. Treasure Keeper is, at very least, worth considering. Merciless Executioner is pretty goo. Body Snatcher would support the reanimation subtheme. Solemn Simulacrum is legendary, and Noxious Gearhulk is great late-game removals. Gotta come back from those Dark Confidant uses somehow. Thragtusk is pretty gold and Wurmcoil Engine is also quite fantastic. Fauna Shaman is a necessity and Strionic Resonator is pretty great.

I'm not sure I would describe your deck as slow, but it does seem to be lacking card draw and must answer threats outside of Steel Leaf Champion and the obvious Bloodbraid Elf. So here is my suggestions to try and improve your draw and answers:
Replace Vines of Vastwood with Ghor-Clan Rampager, the Rampager can be played as a pump spell or used as a creature.
Swap 1x Scavenging Ooze for a Fauna Shaman, this could be a last ditch way to find the creature you need.
Cut Rancor and replace it with Experiment One, this is a valid threat rather than a boost to an existing threat.
Swap 1x Boggart Ram-Gang for either 1x Reclamation Sage or 1x Eternal Witness the other 3x should probably be swapped for Jund Hackblade or Fanatic of Xenagos, if you were running mountains then I'd suggest Flinthoof Boar.
Note this is just what I'd do, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

I'm not sure how well Living Death and Primal Surge strategies mesh... one needs cards in your grave and you have some non permanents to support this strat which both weaken Primal Surge. I'd pick one or the other (current list looks more Primal Surge oriented).
Got a few suggestions for you that'll work either way though. Fleshbag Marauder to go with his twin Merciless Executioner. Eternal Witness to pull anything out of your grave, but especially Primal Surge. Cephalid Coliseum, Fauna Shaman, and Survival of the Fittest are all great selective ways to get cards in your grave (survival is available in gold border for MUCH cheaper). Crystal Vein and Lotus Petal are both good options for ramp here. Nihil Spellbomb is a good option here also.
If you want to go the Living Death route I'd suggest Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Entomb, and Intuition to get cards in your grave. I'd also recommend more reanimation focus if you go this route and run Necromancy and/or Dance of the Dead.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Not primal surge but still plenty of permanents. Feedback, ideas, and upvotes are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

Not a bad list, I do have a few suggestions though.
First, get Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in here. You already run the other 2/3 of an infinite kill-the-table combo (Walking Ballista and Protean Hulk). Your opponents quickly realize they can't boardwipe or kill the Hulk or you can usually win on the spot and it protects the rest of your boardstate.
Cephalid Coliseum, Fauna Shaman, and Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper) are all great ways to selectively fill your grave. Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp are a bit less selective but still good options here.
I'd also replace Reclamation Sage with with Caustic Caterpillar. Scapeshift and Second Chance feel out of place here. I'd replace Scapeshift with Crop Rotation or Expedition Map. Second Chance I wouldn't run without some serious life manipulation like Necropotence and even then it's a bad card outside of comboing with it.

JNapp, So here is my suggestions to try and improve your draw and answers:
For your sideboard:
While Utopia Sprawl is a great card, by bring your mana curve down a little it is less necessary. Note that this is simply what I would do, I hope it's of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Good start but I do have a few suggestions for you.
First, a few lands. Ash Barrens deserves a spot with this many basics. Cephalid Coliseum is a nice selective way to fill your grave. Crystal Vein is good reusable ramp here. Command Tower and Command Beacon both deserve spots here. I'd personally run off color fetches too.
Next, grave matters stuff. Necromancy and Dance of the Dead are both good options. Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper) are both excellent ways to selectively fill your grave. Dredge obviously is good here, try Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp.
