Fauna Shaman Discussion

Lilbrudder on All Nightmare Long (SBT Primer)

Pheardemons: Carpet of flowers is one of the most broken cards in cEDH. It is an auto-include if you play green in cEDH pods due to the high concentration of blue decks. With that being said, it is a situational card at most commander nights given that people are more focused on fun decks and there are far fewer decks that consistently follow up a turn 1 Tropical Island with a turn 2 Underground Sea.

costrander3689: Thanks Brother!

Grantley91: No Original duals (can get by with other dual lands); No grim tutor (Its the worst tutor in the deck); imperial seal would hurt ALOT more to lose but not many people can afford it. You could replace these with a high number of iffy tutors that would imbalance the deck some and make one of the combos a focal point. Eldritch Evolution, Summoner's Pact, Merchant Scroll, Shred Memory; Muddle the Mixture Drift of Phantasms, Fauna Shaman could all be justified but aren't ideal. You could also just add more interaction. Beyond that cutting Force of Will or a Mox Diamond could make sense.

enpc: Extract is a solid tutor. If I was making food chain the primary combo I would definitely include it, but it is my backup atm. If I focus more on it its definitely a solid include and a great focused hate piece to decks with a single point of failure.

I don't need a Fauna Shaman.

The price on Gideon is negotiable of course. Let me know if you find any of my wants.

Rhys the Exiled, Beastcaller Savant, Bloom Tender, Imperious Perfect, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Elvish Champion, Elvish Piper, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Gaea's Herald, Immaculate Magistrate, Joiner Adept, Mul Daya Channelers, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Oracle of Mul Daya, and Fauna Shaman are all missing though! Seriously, you can't have an Elf deck without a few of these thrown in there. This is why I play Elf based EDH decks, I like them all too much to go without one. Haha. +1

I love Elf decks.

Updated the deck, added Mana Crypt and Rhonas the Indomitable and Cloudstone Curio Still wins turn 3-5 pretty easily. Swapped out Weird Harvest for Survival of the Fittest and Fauna Shaman.

Recently saw a couple other cards like Primal Forcemage and Noxious Revival might see how those work with the deck, if they are needed.

7 more possible cuts, and none of them particularly bad cards. But if you're looking to free up space for something that may end up better, these are at least possible to pull.

  • Beastcaller Savant and Rattleclaw Mystic. So here's what's I think about 2cmc ramp creatures in Animar: they aren't good. They come out on turn 2, so they don't get Animar out any faster, and they don't contribute a counter. If you need them for mana-fixing, then I would honestly suggest land-ramping with cards like Nature's Lore. That way, if you get hit with a field wipe, you won't lose a lot of your mana as well. 1cmc tampers like BoP are fantastic, cause they can get Animar out faster, but I personally have just never been a fan of 2cmc dorks. Rattleclaw Mystic is a particular favorite with this deck just because people think "he gives you exactly what you need to play Animar." And he does. On turn 4. And his flip ability only produces 1 extra mana. I would personally get more use out of a Cultivate or a Kodama's Reach that both ramps a land onto the battlefield and puts another one into your hand so you can continue to make reliable land drops. Plus, one of those literally fixes all of your color problems as well. And sure, the creatures can come down after Animar to strengthen him, but odds are if he needs to be cast again, they won't be there to help him. (He really only is removed by wipes) Anyhow, that's just my opinion. I'm sure they're not horrible cards, and ramp is ramp. But I could see swapping them.

  • Fauna Shaman. My biggest argument against this card is that Animar likes to dump your hand onto the field. This means her ability isn't always usable. Or if you don't particularly want to discard a certain card. It's something to think about as you play it, whether this card is one you get a lot of use out of or not. It could work great for you. Or, you could find it sometimes comes up short. One to keep an eye on. You already run a few tutors, so this one may not be necessary, or could possibly be filled by Chord of Calling.

  • Cloud of Faeries. Small card. Flying blocker. Free +1/+1 counter and maybe even nets you 1 mana. Not a bad card. Doesn't recur, doesn't combo, isn't strong. Possible cut choice. It's honestly not bad for some cheap early counters, but Increasing Savagery might be better here.

  • Heartwood Storyteller. Yea, not many people will draw off of you. But they can still draw off of each other. And while you'll get more creatures, it could very easily give the wrong people the right cards. You have a decent bit of draw, and this is somewhat risky. (There's a reason hug decks run it) Just a thought.

  • Craterhoof Behemoth. I know Animar plays a lot of creatures, but it isn't a token deck. Do you often have more than 5-7 on the field? Rather, has this card actually won you games? If so, fantastic. Keep it. If not, it's a possible cut.

  • Balefire Dragon. Love this card. It's super cool. It kills most of one person's creatures if it deals combat damage to them. If you read that positively, fine. If not, cut it.

In light of the recent MTGO Commander Banlist announcement, I thought to ask everyone what the banlist would look like if they made it.

The following proposed banlist is my opinion of what the banlist should look like. You will see 3 criteria for what makes a card unfit for the format, and a list of what cards could be banned based on them:
