See the Unwritten


Reveal the top eight cards of your library. You may put a creature card from among them onto the battlefield. Put the rest into your graveyard.

Ferocious — If you control a creature with power 4 or greater, you may put two creature cards onto the battlefield instead of one.

Chhris on Mayael and Other-wordly Allies

1 week ago

HI!! Yayayay Mayael the Anima decks are the best! and I have to say THAT I LOVE YOUR LIST :) But it needs more Godsire still ++1

So I love seeing the array of ceeatures you have goong on it looks like they bring a secondary ability to the table in most instances too, to make their presence known. love that. Mayael is great at helping you catch up, recover momentum, and stay ahead of your opponents. Make sure you only activate her in the end step before your turn, or in reaction to your opponents actions - its important they have as little time as possible to redpond to the threats youre playing. Craterhoof Behemoth + Avenger of Zendikar is a proven winning combo, and any other eldrazi titans would be a great addition. Chord of Calling and See the Unwritten are other good "cheat" cards out options, because Mayael will often get targeted by your opponents. Also look at Lurking Predators because its incredible, and Sunbird's Invocation and Guild Feud (Which is a very underrated card).

And if you want more inspiration, have a peer at my deck: Chapter 1: The Safari Zone {Primer}

Please let me know if you want anymore help! ;)

RJGiel on Mayael and the big STOMP

Scroll Rack is amazing in Mayael. It allows you to put the fatties in your hand back on top to hit with Mayael.

Selvala's Stampede is also pretty cool while See the Unwritten also works as a Mayael without the need to have her on the field.

@NaturalKRUNCH I used to run See the Unwritten but I'm not as much a fan. At 6 mana I'd rather just tap Mayael and spin the wheel there. I like Selvala's Stampede as a unique effect different from Mayael's tap ability because in addition to hitting things from your library like See the Unwritten does, it's one of a few effects in the deck that empties out your hand, and it's really hard to play things in your hand otherwise.

Combustible Gearhulk does draw cards often, but I don't think the deck wants to do that. If you play a fat creature and it doesn't do anything to prevent your opponents from winning immediately, it's not helpful. Remember that when you hit 6 mana, your opponents will be enacting their own gameplan too and you need to out-tempo them, not out-value them (you'll naturally out-value them via Mayael and having fatter duders than they do).

DaddyBorborygmos on GRUUL SMASH

rewwer, The mana curve is definitely higher than usual but I think its a bit skewed since I have Ghalta, Primal Hunger which won't be cast for 12 mana and Worldspine Wurm who is only played through a Natural Order , See the Unwritten , Garruk, Caller of Beasts or a Hideaway land. With all this considered, my mana curve is still higher than average but my deck is really tight right now and I have no idea what I should cut. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

TypicalTimmy on Losing to Precons and annoying ...

1 month ago

I know Timmy's get a bad rap, but there is a care-free side that I enjoy about it. I'm not here to win a game, I'm here to play a game. Maybe I lose, maybe I win, maybe we tie.

As long as I get to play my deck and be with my friends, I'll have fun.

I love big, stupid, over the top flashy cards like See the Unwritten , I love large tribal decks, I love using colors in ways not normally associated (I have an Azorius Mid-range deck focused on Prowess, for example), and I love making dozens - if not hundreds of tokens.

I'm a Timmy, through-and-through. Really, the only thing I hate is mill. If you don't want me to play the game, then why am I sitting down at the table?

As to your post, OP, it sounds like you are either a Spike or a hardcore Johnny with a Spike complex.

It's just a game bro. Chill. Unless you're playing for money, just sit back and have fun.

Having seen your newest post, have you considered getting into Archenemy? You may like it if you feel you get ganged up on unfairly. Throw some Schemes at them and see how their skill fares out lol.

Langass on Yidris Keep On Cascading

- Snuff Out - See the Unwritten

+ Palinchron + Pathbreaker Ibex

I took out Snuff Out because I only run 4 Swamps, so I feel it is a little inconsistent in being able to cast it without its CMC cost. See the Unwritten was switched because I honestly think the other two cards outvalue it significantly, and it the creatures entering don't give me cascade triggers. I'd prefer to keep things in my library rather than chancing it and getting rid of 6-7 cards for 1 creature.

DubbaDub on Mayael the anima v2.0

2 months ago

The thing with Siege Behemoth is that it's a 4 toughness creature and only works when it's attacking. Amulet is a bit slow on paper, but in practice the deck can't really affect the board on turn 4, and it usually doesn't do anything except play Mayael the Anima before turn 5 or 6. My main problem is what to cut. My full list of cards I want to includes but is not limited to: Emrakul, the Promised End Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Gruul Ragebeast Champion of Rhonas See the Unwritten Illusionist's Bracers Aura Shards Mayael's Aria Grasp of Fate
