Nullmage Shepherd Discussion

bubba64 on $50 Budget Hogaak Smash

rwking082 Thanks for the feedback! I've done everything I can to minimize cards that don't either directly or indirectly help me cast hogaak. That way I can cast him early more consistently. However, I fully agree that removal is also important. I've been considering adding Nullmage Shepherd to make another use for all the tokens I generate while also acting a convoker if I need it to. Beast Within is also just a great catch-all card. If I really needed a convoker, I could even use it on one of my own lands to get a beast. Preferably on Dakmor Salvage or Drownyard Temple

I'll take this advice into consideration

Neat list! You might like these: Well of Lost Dreams (lets you draw tons of cards from your general's lifegain ability), Mimic Vat (if you populate the token, you keep the populated copy!), Doomed Artisan , Phyrexian Processor , Nullmage Shepherd

Hello eerie343,

We gave your request a lot of thought. Our main objective was to keep the spirit of the deck the same. So we decided to try and find replacements for the more expensive cards while keeping the original thought of the replaced cards alive. Naturally this would mean we would end up with cards that are either slightly less effective at what the expensive cards do, or they have a higher CMC, or both.

Almost all replacements we have chosen cost below 1 dollar. Some of the replaced cards are cards we do not own, so we decided not to post a new deck as we only do so when we own all the cards in it. So, here is a list of the replacements we would make in order to turn this into a less expensive deck:

We were not able to find suitable replacements (i.e.: cards that would do the same thing but be slightly less effective at it) for the following cards:

So if you have any suggestions for these, please let us know. For now, we hope we helped you a bit to make a cheaper version of our deck. Have fun brewing it!

Kind regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Hey, thanks a lot for your suggestions! There might be couple I'd like to use. As for the others, I've listed my thoughts below:

  • I am already using Parallel Lives , and I'm not sure my deck relies enough on tokens to justify running both that and Anointed Procession , especially since it doesn't work with Tolsimir (aside from giving me the extra 3 life). If I feel I need to extra token generation, I might consider throwing in a procession.
  • Bower Passage , I don't really like. I dislike cards that straight up turn my creatures unblockable for the right opponent (and may do nothing for others). Dense Canopy I like more, since it affects the whole table, and might therefor work better as a diplomatic tool. Same goes for Gravity Well . The problem remains though that they're dead cards if I'm playing against someone without flyers out. For a first draft I'd rather rely on the removal granted by the fighting ability and see if I still have enough trouble with flyers to justify one of them.
  • Coat of Arms I don't like much as a card, and it goes against the theme. The last goes for Generous Gift as well, I think Beast Within fits the theme much better.
  • I might add Skyshroud Claim if I feel I need more ramp. Nature's Lore I just just don't like in EDH. It has too little impact to be worth a card slot for me.
  • I had been looking at my lack of recursion, and considering something like Praetor's Counsel to address it, but I felt it went too much against the theme. Seasons Past is a much better alternative. I'll consider adding it.
  • Lastly, I'm going to straight up disagree with you that Aura Shards is in any way better than Sylvan Reclamation . Not only does it exile the targets (which helps against indestructible targets like Gods or Darksteel Forge , against which Aura shards is useless), but it's instant speed whereas I need to pre-emptively cast Aura Shards to be able to respond to artifacts or enchantments coming out, giving my opponents a chance to deal with it before they play their big targets (or get a free turn with them if I hold the Shards back). On top of that, I can basic landcycle the reclamation if I ever find myself in dire need of land. I had considered Aura Shards instead of Nullmage Shepherd , as they are much more comparable, but ended up opting for the shepherd since it allows me to more easily destroy targets on instant speed (since I just need untapped creatures rather than a way to pump out creatures on instant speed to trigger it).

I couldn't help but notice you had a list of your own. I'll take a look at it later and let you know my thoughts on that.

I'm very glad I stumbled on your list, you have multiple inclusions here I hadn't thought of such as Pir's Whim , Kamahl, Fist of Krosa , Shaman of Forgotten Ways and Temur Sabertooth .

I also like that you have chosen to include Mouth of Ronom and 1x Snow-Covered Forest , I like my full art lands so haven't been wanting to switch them for Snow-Covered ones, but just one copy would be interesting.

A question though, are Amulet of Vigor and Nullmage Shepherd working out?

If you are interested in checking out my list, here it is: Titania, Nature's Avenger. +1 from me.
