Mayael the Anima Discussion

Thank you so much for your advice. You are totally right with Sun crowned hunter - he is not worth it and I used his slot to put in Needletooth Raptor.

Also Mayael the Anima was in the list for a while already. However, I only have 13 Cards with which she could interact - and I think my mana is to valiable for such a gamble (For an average, 20 creatures should have a power of 5 or more to give each ability activation at least one card to pick).

Why is Looming Altisaur a thing?!

Hey folks, I'm playing in a casual paper league and the format is "Chaos Brawl". Based on the sets I pulled I'm going with Mayael the Anima. My sets were:

  • 4th Edition
  • Shards of Alara
  • Alara Reborn
  • Lowryn
  • Rise of the Eldrazi
  • Kaladash

Here's the deck:

I am going to second legendofa. With Eldrazi in the running, Mayael the Anima is going to be incredibly powerful.

I have not done an in-depth look at the sets you pulled, but my gut says you might have a hard time ramping in colourless--after all, effecient mana rocks have not been printed in every set. Green ramp, however, is a common enough staple that you probably want access to that colour. Fourth edition even gives you such gems as

To show you how great Mayael's colours are, particularly with access to a powerful ancient set, I did a quick Gatherer search and wanted to point out the following notable cards:

Also, don't forget you have access to Strip Mine and Mana Vault.

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn isn't a bad choice as a single card, but you got two multicolor heavy sets with the Alara stuff, and Lorwyn can easily go multicolor. If you run Emrakul as your commander, you literally cannot use any cards from the Alara Reborn set--every card in it is multicolored, as a gimmick.

Since you did get the Eldrazi, I would suggest something like Mayael the Anima, who can cheat them out and has good ramp options, Sedris, the Traitor King to dump big stuff in the graveyard then unearth it out, before reshuffling if necessary, or maybe Thraximundar to play with Annihilator. With the sets you got, I think big Eldrazi should go in the deck, instead of leading it.

  1. Traverse the Outlands and Rishkar's Expertise are goodTry and make room for both
  2. Definitely add Needletooth Raptor and Looming Altisaur
  3. You might want to consider Mayael the Anima
  4. If any of this was helpful could you please look at my Zur deck Zur Voltron, To win against five. +1 from me

BMHKain on How can I bring Superfriends ...

Also, some Melancholic news. I'm finally giving up my Superfriends deck as it seems like it would be a hopeless case. Even Jodah wouldn't help things in such a way... Maybe I'll remake the deck again, but as a "cBrawl" deck. I'll make other decks of this meta in addition. Now, what to choose for my next project: Mayael the Anima, or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge?

I'm pondering as I feel the defeat...

My next project may be a Naya deck with Mayael the Anima at the helm. I am not even sure I care much about her ability, I just want the colors and a Tamanoa enchantress shell. Plus, I think her card is amazingly beautiful. That Firesong and Sunspeaker is a pretty amazinng card, and would likely fit in it. Your deck looks pretty sweet. I'll have to spend some time before I wrap my head around it.

I always wanted to make a Mayael the Anima deck, this one looks nice.
Hua Tuo, Honored Physician this guy is a recurrent noxious revival, seems perfect.
If you could get your hands on a Scroll Rack it would be great, Sylvan Library or Mirri's Guile can also help together with your Sensei's Divining Top.
When you already have top of library manipulation and big creatures Lurking Predators and Aid from the Cowl are a specially good idea.
Champion of Rhonas and Deathrender if you think you need more cheating creatures onto the battlefield.
