Nourishing Shoal Discussion

There are some packages that can help

The idea is very similar to the lists running Nourishing Shoal + Worldspine Wurm - but it uses the swings of griselbrand for lifegain - and can win steal games with emrakul by attacking twice.

In the past I've seen Griselbrand decks run Chancellor of the Tangle to pitch to Nourishing Shoal since you can get a turn 1 boost with them. is Worldspine Wurm still better here, given that you're probably never going to hardcast it? Or is it just the fact that it natively has trample and values out with Through the Breach?

You might scrap Nourishing Shoal for Predator's Rapport. My opinion, Shoal says "exile A Card for a few life (Your highest CMC is 7, so 7 life for 0 mana) or pay any amount of mana for any amount of life -2." So you either blow a lot of mana or lose a card, in trade for most likely less than 10 life... from a 7$ Card! OR, Rapport says "if your creature is alive, you gain x+x life." Consistently 3 mana, great fun to respond to destroy spells with, and hydras have a tendency to keep getting bigger...And you have Stream of Life anyway to do the main ability of Shoal for less mana.Admittedly, I used it in a doubling counters deck and could occasionally earn 100+ life before a response was made.
Also, this looks like a creature/stompy deck with a burn twist... but you have a LOT of noncreatures. 4/5ths of your decklist isnt a creature, and that makes sense for the defense end but it might be a little heavy in combat tricks... Maybe i'm misreading the deck, I havent played it, But I would try to cut out about 5 noncreatures for creatures. Maybe even 7 noncreatures, for 4 creatures and 3 more lands?

This is very cool.
Have you tested with Animist's Awakening, Biomass Mutation, Dominate, Gelatinous Genesis, Genesis Wave, Hooded Hydra, Lifeblood Hydra, Nourishing Shoal, Primordial Hydra, Protean Hydra, Pull from Tomorrow, Strength of the Tajuru, or Vastwood Hydra?

Griselbrand doesn't tutor for the single copy of Haze of Rage, so with griz most of the time you won't find your storm card. Griz also doesn't have trample as LastRaven69 pointed out. The big difference though is that the entire point of the combo is to get in for 16+ damage from nowhere and no/almost no board, and Raz allows you to build up storm count at no risk of randomly drawing poorly and burning out.
Griz is good in combos where you can use and need all the extra cards drawn, not just the ones for your combo. For example, in many Grishoalbrand combos he is used to draw your entire deck alongside Worldspine Wurm and Nourishing Shoal, then cheating in a Borborygmos Enraged, pitching all the extra lands and burning the opponent out. This combo has no use for the extra cards like lands and small creatures that cost mana, so drawing them is more or less just a waste of your life-total. I tried Griz and he was fine, but Raz is much better in this specific deck.

Looking to keep the trades flowin!
I have some modern/EDH things I'd like to get rid of, like:
2 Devoted Druid
1 Glimpse the Unthinkable (RAV)
1 Glen Elendra Archmage (EVE)
3 Street Wraith 2 (FUT) (The cool ones ;D) 1 (MMA)
1 Dryad Arbor (FUT)

1 Chainer's Edict (V13)
1 Master of Cruelties
1 Nourishing Shoal
...etc etc. I have a ton of shtuff in the binder.
I also have some Standard cards I don't want, like:
Check out my wants. Biggest standard stuff I'm looking for is Archangel Avacyn Flip and Liliana, Death's Majesty. I will usually trade for the Kaladesh fast lands, too. But if you want one of the above cards, just let me know and I'll check out your binder. :)

I agree that they should have only been Spells, no creatures or artifacts. Also the lack of green invocations was disturbing. To break it down:
White cards: 7
Blue cards: 11
Black cards: 6
Red cards: 3
Green cards: 1 (The God)
If you count the gold cards, Green gets an additional 1 card, white gets an additional 1, and black gets 2 more.
This brings us a total of 30 cards. I kind of wish they were evenly spread out, each color getting an even amount.
Below is a list of what I would have made the invocations be and this list does include alot of the invocations that were already made. Additionally this list is made to have all the colors get equal representation. Additionally this is just an opinion. Here we go by color:
Blue (This is the only color, for obvious reasons, that I didn't add any cards to, but rather subtracted from):
Black (I almost just subtracted down to 5 like blue, but Mind Twist always felt a bit disappointing for me as an invocation, and was cut [remember this is all just opinions and fun times]):
Green (This one took some work):
Gold (While not totally even, I tried to represent colors fairly):
What do other people think? Hows my list?
