Fauna Shaman Discussion

You have a pretty low CMC curve so you can probably cut back to 38 lands without trouble though I don't really see any ramp...
Not a lot of removal in the deck so you're relying on combo-ing out pretty quickly I would think. I see a bit of infect strategy in there as well. Has that come up all that often?
I'm seeing only 99 cards total, is that an open flex slot?

It seems like you're attempting an Elf themed version of the deck, if I am seeing things correctly. If that is the case, might I suggest Fauna Shaman to help fuel your Flash engine with Yeva as well as Elvish Soultiller to help recycle cards discarded this way. Elves also give you access to Priest of Titania and Wirewood Channeler for some insane mana ramp.

Kamerot I got Wave of Vitriol , Doubling Season , Primalcrux , Fauna Shaman and Life from the Loam and would like to add them in. Here is what I'm thinking Wave of vitriol for Natural Affinity then doubling season for Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (I know she is great but I decided to buy doubling season instead because it creates soooo much value.) next up is Primalcrux for Timber Protector then I would was thinking about possibly putting Fauna Shaman in for Beast Whisperer what do you think? oh and I really wasn't to sure what to do for life from the loam do you have any suggestions? would it even be good in this deck?

btw; evolutionary leap is pretty garbage overall. having in your card advantage category is kind of ironic given it is more of card disadvantage. you can easily replace it with Fauna Shaman

Hey, consider a few more cards to make Gyrus's token ability better: Fauna Shaman , Buried Alive , Faithless Looting and Entomb ? All these cards are conveniently in last months Ultimate Masters. I choose these suggestions because they give you control over what creatures you put into your graveyard. Hydras with X in their mana cost are not good with Gyrus's token making ability because X will always be 0 when you make a token. Some of the best Hydras however don't have X in their casting cost: Kalonian Hydra, Hydra Omnivore and Hydra Broodmaster.
Consider Riftsweeper ? Rift has an ETB ability which moves an exiled face-up card (any creature you exile with Gyrus to make a token) and puts that card back into your library. This is where Fauna Shaman helps since she can then tutor for that creature you just put back into your library. Or she can tutor for Rift or Witness. Gyrus, Rift, Witness and Fauna can be an engine to repeatedly throughout the game make a token of a creature and put that creature from exile back into your library.
Consider Greater Good ? When you're playing creatures who can have a lot of power (Hydras) then Greater is fantastic repeatable draw/discard. Greater is also a sac/discard outlet to get a creature into your graveyard which improves Gyrus's token making ability. Consider Tortured Existence ? Existence lets you discard a creature without X in it's cost to them recur any other creature in your graveyard. This is good with X CMC Hydras and utility creatures such as Witness and Seeker; creatures you don't want to exile with Gyrus to repeatably use their ETB abilities. Greater and Existence can be an engine with X CMC Hydras to repeatedly draw a lot of cards and recur the Hydra to cast it again.
I have other suggestions, but I'll stop here.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, dajuggerz - saw your note on my page so I thought I'd check out your deck and make a few suggestions. Overall you've got the right control/stax strategy for Teeg but here's a few more 'hate bear' creatures that Teeg likes: Aven Mindcensor , Fauna Shaman , Grand Abolisher , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Mother of Runes , Recruiter of the Guard , Runic Armasaur , Spirit of the Labyrinth , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben & Tocatli Honor Guard
Cheers and good luck with your build!

I think the biggest thing that would improve this deck is getting some tutors for Immerwolf . Chord of Calling is the most important, since it's instant-speed, allowing you to flip your werewolves. Woodland Bellower , Green Sun's Zenith , Birthing Pod , Eldrich Evolution, Fauna Shaman , and Natural Order are all good, too. Secondly, I would put in some generic tribal stuff. Adaptive Automaton , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Kindred Summons , Metallic Mimic , Obelisk of Urd , Vanquisher's Banner , Urza's Incubator , Coat of Arms , Descendants' Path , Grave Sifter , Path of Ancestry , Shared Animosity , Steely Resolve , and Tribal Unity are all cards you should consider.

generalrenard the short answer is no, she is literally birthing pod on a creature. You can't exactly use her in place of birthing pod in this list since she is a creature, but I put her in the 99 for utility. Just like why people run both Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest some times. Being able to get the creatures you need is powerful.
