@Boza: Hmmm... Interesting link you put up. It's ironic I'm still doing the whole 4 color thing. I'd be more that happy to take the exam upon your Folly, the only obstacle getting in the way is my deckbuilding ideas; I already am trying to perfect Kruphix, God of Horizons Infinite , Finishing up Superfriends/Avengers all on my own, cEDH Boros (Yes, I'm still at it, & I will not cease.); even future plans include a Mono- Burn/Red Deck Wins deck that is viable compare to all other Burn decks. A possible Vorthos deck based upon a documentary running Kykar, Wind's Fury , a possible Stitcher Geralf deck, &, potentially, a More Powerful Mayael the Anima deck than ever before. Although these planes are for another time (& Place), there's just too much riding on my Avenger deck. I, mean, we got Golos, Tireless Pilgrim; & more crap for CORE 2020... Looks like I've a lot to do. But what to do about the color combinations? & Snow even if you can find stuff for the latter? I actually have plans to incorporate all traits in a logo of all things...

With all those fatties, does Mayael the Anima have a place here?

Hey guys! I finally convinced my GF to give commander a shot (I dont really play other formats), and now I need to build her a deck that is simple for her and cheap, as well as on a good oriented theme. She doesnt really like demons and zombies and stuff like that. My thoughts were Sigarda, Host of Herons or Mayael the Anima , but I want to know if anyone has anything that would be even easier for her to learn.

Will Vivien's Arkbow also make it into the deck following WAR? It's like a Mayael the Anima that is -- effectively -- better in everyway. Harder to remove, a better mana sink, and easily castable, as well as in your colours.

HI!! Yayayay Mayael the Anima decks are the best! and I have to say THAT I LOVE YOUR LIST :) But it needs more Godsire still ++1

So I love seeing the array of ceeatures you have goong on it looks like they bring a secondary ability to the table in most instances too, to make their presence known. love that. Mayael is great at helping you catch up, recover momentum, and stay ahead of your opponents. Make sure you only activate her in the end step before your turn, or in reaction to your opponents actions - its important they have as little time as possible to redpond to the threats youre playing. Craterhoof Behemoth + Avenger of Zendikar is a proven winning combo, and any other eldrazi titans would be a great addition. Chord of Calling and See the Unwritten are other good "cheat" cards out options, because Mayael will often get targeted by your opponents. Also look at Lurking Predators because its incredible, and Sunbird's Invocation and Guild Feud (Which is a very underrated card).

And if you want more inspiration, have a peer at my deck: Chapter 1: The Safari Zone {Primer}

Please let me know if you want anymore help! ;)

     Great suggestions Chhris! Thank you. :)

     Exploration is definitely something in mind for the deck, when funds allow. I think Faith's Reward + Wilderness Reclamation are great stand alone suggestions, but in tandem they're a great combo! Definite add. Leave / Chance is the only one I'm not hot about. I think once I get Reinforcements & Noxious Revival they'll make this card a little redundant. I'd be more inclined to look at Heroic Intervention or Unbreakable Formation , I think. Some blanket protection is definitely a good call!

     When I first started brewing Naya, Mayael the Anima was the very first General I gravitated towards before choosing Gishath. Can't wait to check it out, and thanks again for the great suggestions! :)

Hi!! Really love your deck so far, as you mentioned, it's still a work in progress, but I think you've got a great shell to build on so far. Many improvements I would suggest to "improve" the Dinosaur package are creatures that you've mentioned so far in your maybe board, which is good. I am also pleased to see you playing Smothering Tithe which is one of the best cards in the EDH format to be introduced in ages.

I strongly recommend Exploration if you have it. This is another great tool for ramping early on, as well as Wilderness Reclamation , which I think is great as well. The only tricky thing with running Gishath, Sun's Avatar as your commander, is that while he does dump a lot of dinosaurs onto the field, they have to survive until your next turn in order to be used for an attack. For this reason, effect like Faith's Reward or Leave / Chance can save you from wipe, or indestructible effects like rootborn defences, running a slew of spells doing either would increase the decks potency, I think.

Overall, great deck! +1 and I wish you luck with it in the future! If you want any other ideas, here's my Mayael the Anima deck, which might contain some other ideas to help you out.
