Mycoid Shepherd Discussion

mastermew on DINOSAURS!

I took a look on the gatherer searching for cards with the text "power 5 or greater" and found a few cards that I think would be good for dinos.

Drumhunter, Exuberant Firestoker, Feed the Clan, Godtracker of Jund, maybe Mayael the Anima, Mayael's Aria, Mighty Emergence, Mycoid Shepherd, maybe Spearbreaker Behemoth, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Sunseed Nurturer, and Where Ancients Tread.

Deck looks good! My only advice would be to incorperate a little bit of removal so you can interact with the other players. It can be cheap efficient creature removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile or catch alls like Beast Within.

Here's some other Mayael stuff, not necessarily better than what you have already, just more options.

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Spearbreaker Behemoth

Greenwarden of Murasa "big Eternal Witness"

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Stonehoof Chieftain

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Aurelia, the Warleader

Vagrant Plowbeasts

Mycoid Shepherd

Aura Shards

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Where Ancients Tread

Stuff that synergizes well with Mayael:

Seedborn Muse for Mayael ability on each opponent end step

Illusionist's Bracers

Rings of Brighthearth

Thousand-Year Elixir

LeaPlath which cards are you saying i should put 4 of? the main point of the deck is to get out the rampaging baloth and get a couple of mana in for the landfall hopefully with a surrak ingame i get that i should put playsets of cards but of all those cards there i dont own a playset of any except for the Mycoid Shepherd hopefully i'd like to get a few more Heroic Intervention to protect my creatures

Hey, I really liked your use of Mycoid Shepherd and used some ideas from this deck to build my own Mycoid Shepherd-deck.

This is the result: Big Selesnya

Cryptolith Rite, Citanul Hierophants and Skyshroud Elf are all wonderful for token decks and fast ramp, although the Elf is only necessary if you have color problems.

Impact Tremors, Suture Priest, Juniper Order Ranger and Champion of Lambholt are good for when spawning massive amounts of creature tokens, and Priest tends to shut down infinite token combos, if those are a thing in your play group.

Mycoloth, Ant Queen, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage and Rhys the Redeemed are nice for getting a lot of tokens out. Mycoloth in particular has wonderful synergy with Cathars' Crusade!

Mycoid Shepherd and Mayael's Aria are good for when you have more of your large creatures out, or when you've ramped your small ones large enough.

Requiem Angel, Eldrazi Monument, Phyrexian Rebirth and Rootborn Defenses are good for board wipes/anti-board wipes. Rebirth is even more amazing if you run it with cards with populate, such as Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage or Rootborn Defenses.

Shaman of Forgotten Ways and Titanic Ultimatum are both your "one-hit-win-wonders", although Titanic is a little more reliable.

Signal the Clans and Sundering Growth are both good utility cards, while Contagion Engine works wonders with counters on all creatures, plus the added bonus of nuking your opponent's creatures, regardless of shroud or indestructible!

Cathars' Crusade would be a very pretty addition to this...! Loxodon Hierarch, Mycoid Shepherd, Cryptolith Rite, Champion of Lambholt, Contagion Engine and Rhys the Redeemed should all be good additions as well, I'd imagine!

Also Glare of Subdual, Requiem Angel, Eldrazi Monument and Pollenbright Wings could be cards to consider, although they might not fit the "theme" of the deck, if you're concerned about that... and of course, Doubling Season and Parallel Lives have been mentioned already~!

And hey, with the exception of Rhys, Eldrazi Monument and Contagion, these are all extremely budget cards, each a dollar or less, which is always a plus, ne?
