Shimtalia on Kickin' it Old School

Yeah, So...In the last 24 hours, I did a bunch of work on this deck, proxied a bunch of it up, took it for a spin in front of a goldfish bowl, and I discovered I needed to make some changes.

For one, I had too many kicker spells. They are easily the weakest part of the deck, vital and important that they may be. Two, I needed some card draw. Three, well, just some other thoughts that came to me while I was working...


Blood Clock - Breath of Darigaaz - Chandra's Ignition - Decimate - Keen Sense - Loxodon Warhammer - Momentous Fall - Opal Palace - Rishkar's Expertise - Sunbird's Invocation - Vigor(I want to try this, though it is the only expensive card I don't already own for the deck, it's worth more than the rest of what I don't have combined...)


Blessings of Nature(too many +1/+1 too fast makes too much of a target) - Cloudstone Curio - Gnarlid Pack - Grafted Exoskeleton(yes, it's a massive kill enabler, but also a massive kill me sign) - Grunn, the Lonely King - Horned Kavu - Increasing Savagery(see Blessings) - Skitter of Lizards - Thicket Elemental - Mountain - Forest

Hmm... the list ive been working on has a few cards I think you should take a look at, such as Sac Effects that work with Grunns massive body while, and after, swinging, such as Greater Good, Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall, also, cant ignore the Death's Presence Synergy, granted him dying isn't exactly what you want, but its gonna happen

You only have one source of card draw! In removal heavy games you'd lose gas pretty fast. Momentous Fall (Turn an about-to-be-killed dragon into resources), Soul's Majesty, Hunter's Insight and Hunter's Prowess are good and on-theme.

Perhaps remove either Momentous Fall or Shamanic Revelation. You already have Greater Good as a permanent substitute for Momentous Fall, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary will get you a card off each creature you cast instead of the one-shot for each creature you control in Shamanic Revelation.

You may consider some recursion that's not stuck to a creature. One of my favorites is to pair a board wipe with Faith's Reward: You get your stuff back and they don't. If it's a one-sided board wipe (you're losing high ground), there's Second Sunrise, but that's pretty group hug most days. They're also good if you end up running things like Greater Good or Momentous Fall so you can get back your baddies in quick order!

Draw in these colors is a paaaain. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is my new favorite one. Mind's Eye is expensive mana cost, but in multiplayer mid to late game is great. Since you've got a lot of flying, Mask of Memory has a high chance of making it through. I can't tell if you have enough weenies to make Mentor of the Meek or Skullclamp Worthwhile... Elspeth Helps. The new Karn, Scion of Urza is bad ass draw, but sometimes slow and ends up losing the card you really want.

Keep up the good brew!

If you are looking to do a lot of treeboi sacrificing, I'd suggest looking into Momentous Fall. Seems like it would do some work drawing cards and gaining life.

Since already playing Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall might be a card to consider as well, to add more draw power.
