Whenever an opponent casts a spell, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card, put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, you may put that card on the bottom of your library.

Lurking Predators Discussion

Land recursion Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is indeed a strange way to play her.
You're gonna want a lot of creatures to hit the grave for her ability and you want a lot of hate lands in the deck, have you thought of reconsidering Muldrotha, the Gravetide as your commander, as it allows for a free land per turn as well as other benefits.
Additionally Constant Mists is perfect for fighting aggro with land recursion!
Strip Mine is needed! I would actually take out Perpetual Timepiece as it's a danger to you if you don't have 2 mana up and someone exiles your grave, additionally, if you want to keep it up, you have to play with 2 mana up at all times.
Avenger of Zendikar is great to abuse for sac outlets and get those land drop triggers!
Last but not least: Sylvan Safekeeper a must in all land recursion decks!
Hope this helps, Flesh

Hi MattN7498, thank you for detailed write up. I'm in the market for a casual-but-with-teeth EDH deck and I'm really liking what I see here.
There are a couple of smallish things I'd do differently, but one question stands out and I'm really curious about your opinion:
You've got everything in place to run the Descendants' Path / Lurking Predators / Scroll Rack / Sensei's Divining Top suite - Lots of big creatures that want to be cheated out, many fetches to reset your deck, a Sylvan Library and a few other effects that care about the top of the deck.
I imagine that you lean more towards making your dragons cheaper and / or generating extra mana instead of straight up cheating as those effects work on their own and do not require setting up. Still it seems like a curious omission. Is that something you've toyed with before and didn't like? Please let me know what you think about it!

RoaringBunny, thanks for the suggestions, and for the upvote. I am actually running Rishkar's Expertise over Shamanic Revelation , I just forgot to change it. I did have Soul's Majesty originally planned, but I think I went with Elemental Bond instead. I typically favor effects that draw me cards over time as opposed to one-shot spells. Lurking Predators is awesome, and I run one in my Dinosaur Tribal deck, and its a killer. If I get one eventually, it'll go in here, too. I also like Thassa, God of the Sea , and I'll consider adding it eventually. Budget restrictions are a thing for me, but I'll look for the card may pick one up eventually.

I really like the deck, I tried to make a similar one but was never able to get it where I wanted it to be.
A deck full of high cmc creatures also needs a lot of ramp to keep up with other decks. I personally think you should up your ramp package and add a couple more lands. Frontier Siege is a card I really like, choose khans for 2 green main phase 1 and 2 more main phase 2.
You are running Shamanic Revelation but I think cards like Rishkar's Expertise / Soul's Majesty are likely to draw more cards. You will probably more often have a creature with 5+ power out than 5 creatures on the board.
Fixing the top card of your deck is already a subtheme so it may be worth trying out Lurking Predators .
Thassa, God of the Sea seems to do everything you want. Fits theme, grants unblockable, and helps rig your top card.
Good luck with the deck.

Had a look at your deck and I love it! mainly because of my love for wolves but still :)
I think you have a split focus of wolves and general tokens. I think the deck would run a lot smoother if you run more token based strategies ( unfortunately this would involve loosing some wolves D: ).
Also more draw could help lots. if you stick with lots of creature spells cards like Beast Whisperer and Lurking Predators would give a significant card advantage! if not cards like Slate of Ancestry that will also trigger on tokens

Thanks for the reply, . That makes a lot of sense. I noticed you run some cards to check creatures out of your hand and was wondering if you've tried out Selvala's Stampede and Lurking Predators as well?

You have a lot of big expensive multicoloured creatures, so Urza's Filter could be a good card to run.
Also, I expect you want to cheat your many creatures into play, based also on your general's ability, am I correct? If so, something I use in one of my decks for that purpose are Dragon Arch and Lurking Predators .
Btw, as far as I'm aware Primeval Titan is still banned in EDH, so it should be removed - of course unless your friends in your playgroup are fine with you running it.

I would suggest a card like Rites of Flourishing for speed, Privileged Position to protect your creatures because your low cost cards that involve any kind of ramp and your big cards are at risk of target because they are such a threat, Crawlspace is always handy, Defense of the Heart is a good way to cheat in creatures. Lurking Predators since you have so many creatures but don't use many of these, Shapers' Sanctuary ramp since your cards are a target, Heroic Intervention is a good catch all, Dolmen Gate if you swing a ton, Vizier of the Menagerie to almost have a constant card to play and see ahead. Don't use all but these are some suggestions for your deck.
