Mayael the Anima Discussion

Boza on Atla Palani or Ghave ???

Atla Palani just has her "combo" built into her - just play big creatures in the deck and you get them for free. Naya has a lot of disruption tools to help her as well. Also, it is probably the best deck for Mayael's Aria , better than Mayael the Anima .

Ghave is just a control deck where you do not play blue.

I would personally remove Frontier Siege and Curse of Bounty . I just had this near same deck and it performed very well.

Food for thought Mayael the Anima , while she is great, unless you have a way to alwas get her out early I would ditch her for something like Verix Bladewing who is essentially a RR and 3 (kicked) dropped for 2 4/4 dragons.

I've long been a fan and casual player of Mayael the Anima , but in times to move on, a new C19 commander, Atla Palani, Nest Tender caught my eye. Curious, I began building around her and she's loads of fun! My enthusiasm even sparked my competitive friend to build a combo-based version. I made a list, but in compliance with forum rules I won't post my decklist… I'll just say that I'm REALLY interested in tuning the deck since she really requires a very delicate balance of everything. I'll just look forward to having some discussion here? She's still pretty new, and not overly competitive, so there's not a ton of resources out there for help. Anyhow, thoughts? Comments? Resources?

@MindAblaze: Yeah. That was an easy cut anyway. Though for 2-Card Combos, this is where Problems start. Tokens don't even "Die", much less "Exile"; they just are no longer existing. The problem starts w/: How to untap Atla Palani after saccing an Egg? How to make infinite amounts of Mana each time? EASY. I'm looking back at a Mayael the Anima staple known as Bloom Tender . w/ Atla Palani in play, the only thing left to do is one of the following:

A: Staff of Domination

B: Sword of the Paruns

C: Umbral Mantle

For two card combos, this is the best I could find, but even I dunno how to work them w/ the fact that Paradox Engine is BANNED as BALLS. I'll ask around for now. But know one of these, plus Bloom Tender = INSTANT ARMY.

I just have to know how to forge such an army though... I'll think about it...

Hope this helps. :)

@redben346: Well, it's kind you wanted me to revert back to my original choice for the CMDR; but my mind has been locked. I was going to make a Mayael the Anima deck, until I found that Atla(s) Palani, Nest Tender has FAR more consistency; & the potential that she can make a whole army of Fatsos IN ONE TURN. Based on what I got now, I need 27 cuts. I'm sorry. But Mayael has sung her last Aria... :(

Mayael the Anima ? Because you do have a lot of creatures with power 5 or greater.

Here's the ones I had a lot of fun with. I changed each of these into tricolor decks, so it's the dual color paired with the tricolor it corresponds with. I think any of the 20 are pretty fun and unique in their own way.

Dragonlord Ojutai / Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest extra turns/control

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born /Muldrotha the Graveside mill/grave control

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury / Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire goblin/dragon tribal

Mina and Denn, Wildborn / Surrak Dragonclaw cheating creatures/creature combo

Selvala, Explorer Returned / Mayael the Anima elf tribal/super ramp into creatures

Daxos the Returned / Ertai, the Corrupted enchantments and sacrifices

Meren of Clan Nel Toth / Anafenza, the Foremost sacrifices and +1/+1 counters

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter / Roon of the Hidden Realm bounce and etb abuse

Arjun, the Shifting Flame / Kess, Dissident Mage spell slinging and mass draw

Brion Stoutarm / Mathas, Fiend Seeker burn and destroy

(Not even Mayael the Anima can't sing an Aria to save her life anymore.)

NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: Initially, this was meant to be a Mayael the Anima deck all around; even conforming to newer; & better standards. Then, after several thoughts over her, I wanted to make a WAY better Mayael the Anima -Deck. Atla Palani, Nest Tender was just that. Saccing Eggs to find some of the Most Powerful that Mayael can also do. But I believe that after what I get after all this, Mayael will only be an Afterthought. Questions? Well, here we go...

Q1: In terms of Range of Power; The Magic No. is 4 Power. Namely Stuff w/ Great Effects; 4+ Powered Powerhouses, & just great effects. What do you think is the best out of the ones Printed as of currently? There are so many, I can't mention them all...

Q2: Oh, almost forgot. Assuming the Sac Engines needed to make Egg Tokens that create Monsters w/ incredible power, what exactly would you want to cut & proceed? Also: SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE. (As of this update: this has 127 Cards now.)

Q3: While I've an optimal amount of Instants, I have much fewer SORCERIES. Does this deck need anymore of them, or is it just fine?

Q4 FINAL: The whole purpose of this deck is to bring an entire army to the table in ONE TURN. Since this is /Naya/AGGRO, I want to know your thoughts for how to do it through sacking Eggs & bringing Fat to life in Adult Form. Based on these terms; how would you do this?

Finally, I have to ask: Am I doing too many Help Wanted Deck Help Threads? I'm just curious; that & I couldn't remember what I was initially going to say; that, & I'm apparently doing too little to help my case of trying all I can to help my problems; & from there, for such great people like you.

Hope this helps! :D
