Nullmage Shepherd Discussion

LoneCrusader399 on Untapped Potential

Aurelia, the Warleader, Archangel of Tithes, Masako the Humorless, Nullmage Shepherd, Reconnaissance, Akroma's Memorial, Mother of Runes and, funnily enough, Gideon, Martial Paragon would all fit in with your untapping shenanigans theme.

This is approaching magical Christmas land, but Mangara of Corondor could exile multiple things if you were able to untap him multiple times.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary has quickly become a staple for me in EDH and I would highly recommend it. One card being a source of smoothing out your draws and card draw is invaluable.

Heritage Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Birchlore Rangers, Priest of Titania, Joraga Treespeaker let you turn your tokens into mana etc.

Nature's Lore, Assassinate, Bone Splinters, Death Stroke, Despise, Distress, Explore, Gruesome Discovery, Journey of Discovery, Mind Rot, Appetite for the Unnatural, Doom Blade, Druid's Deliverance, Gilt-Leaf Ambush, Naturalize, Seedling Charm, Spring Cleaning, Strength in Numbers, Vitalize, Prowess of the Fair, Wayfarer's Bauble, Deadbridge Shaman, Silhana Starfletcher can all be cut in my opinion. These cards are all low impact or just a bit eh, compared to what you can do.

Unnerve should be Syphon Mind.

Nullmage Shepherd lets to turn a swarm of tokens into repeatable removal.

If you want to go in hard on tokens, you also have Primal Vigor as another token doubler, Second Harvest as a single use doubler, Sylvan Offering as a massive token producer/political card you can take advantage of especially. Voice of the Woods turns tokens into yet more tokens.

Damnable Pact is a good draw x spell, which can be political, or can be used to burn someone to death. Weird Harvest is an interesting political option, that can let you win on the spot with enough ramp.

Nice list, I've had a lot of fun with my own Prossh, Skyraider of Kher build!

Fungal Sprouting can be a fun extra with him too (and can one shot an opponent just with Prossh ;0)

Nullmage Shepherd is also great for keeping artifacts/enchantments under control.

You might find some more fun things in my own deck list too.

Prossh also has his own mini story For a Greater Good.

Rzepkanut I'm loving Elvish Guidance, I'm betting there's a space for that.I also like the colorless lords Adaptive Automaton & Metallic Mimic.Heritage Druid & Birchlore Rangers were in my main board, but I switched them out for some utility elves like Nullmage Shepherd. However, in solo play testing, I've noticed a couple times where Heritage Druid would've allowed me to go off a turn sooner or get more out of a turn. They are serious contenders, but I haven't played this deck outside of the playtest feature on this site, so I don't know the dynamics of playing against opponents. As for Glimpse of Nature, as soon as I can afford one, it's going in lol.Where to put all of the mana is a struggle. Without any good pay X creatures like Hydras, or Eldrazi, I rely on some of the card draw to keep my hand reloaded. Trying to live by the ElfBall, die by the ElfBall.Which is where Cultivator of Blades comes in nicely. With a few of the lords or a nice Joraga Warcaller in play, that could be a wincon. Nice addition. :)

Entrei Because it's moronic to play CARD A for the sole reason that it is good with CARD B (when CARD A is terrible without CARD B), unless you have enough copies of cards that can substitute for CARD B. If you play Ivorytusk Fortress because it works with Cryptolith Rite, but no other cards that either have or grant tap abilities, you're going to end up with your elephant doing nothing most games. However, if you play Ivorytusk Fortress with Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Earthcraft, Glare of Subdual, Cryptolith Rites, Diversionary Tactics, Nullmage Shepherd, Symbiotic Deployment, Field Surgeon, Selesnya Evangel, and Sandsower, your elephant is probably going to be useful in most games where you draw it.

Note: I don't recommend playing some of those cards. Sandsower seems terrible without an absurd number of creatures, at which point you should be playing Collective Blessing instead.

Great deck! The idea is really interesting and looks really fun to play! :)

Here are a few suggestions:

  • I really think you need to go all in on the Ancient Stirrings playset, as finding your Liquidmetal coatings effects are crucial to your strategy.
  • Avoid Fate (yes, its modern legal xD) is an interesting option for the sideboard, when people bring in all the artifact hate, and you can also dodge a few Bolts hehe.
  • Consign to Dust is an insteresting late game option!
  • Viridian Corrupter actually forces you to destroy an artifact, and that can fireback when you just want a creature... Maybe Reclamation Sage is less unforgiven in that regard? Or maybe just Glissa Sunseeker for the repeatable effect (works perfectly on lands)!
  • I think you dont have enought creatures, but Nullmage Shepherd is a very cool card here!
  • Psychogenic Probe does a good job punishing fetch lands and other uncool searching stuff :)

Edit: I didn't realize that the cub and kami weren't quite the same effect as the caterpillar, so I instead recommend Reclamation Sage and Nullmage Shepherd

Rain of Gore doesn't work with this strategy. It only negates healing for spells that heal their caster. Good too, since i'd have to run three colors if it did ;)


You're great dude, both of those cards are amazing! I've been looking for spot removal against cards like Nullmage Shepherd for this deck and settled for Vendetta, but Oust is even better, even if it only buys me a couple more turns.
