Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for wild or free. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card for each wild vote. Put those creature cards onto the battlefield, then shuffle the rest into your library. You may put a permanent card from your hand onto the battlefield for each free vote.

Selvala's Stampede Discussion
1 week ago
I really like the deck, I tried to make a similar one but was never able to get it where I wanted it to be.
A deck full of high cmc creatures also needs a lot of ramp to keep up with other decks. I personally think you should up your ramp package and add a couple more lands. Frontier Siege is a card I really like, choose khans for 2 green main phase 1 and 2 more main phase 2.
You are running Shamanic Revelation but I think cards like Rishkar's Expertise / Soul's Majesty are likely to draw more cards. You will probably more often have a creature with 5+ power out than 5 creatures on the board.
Fixing the top card of your deck is already a subtheme so it may be worth trying out Lurking Predators .
Thassa, God of the Sea seems to do everything you want. Fits theme, grants unblockable, and helps rig your top card.
Good luck with the deck.

+1 for an interesting tribal deck.
There're so many ways to take the deck, my brain juices are on overdrive right now.
You already got an infinite tokens combo in the deck, why not introduce more Infinite Combos:
Rhythm of the Wild - The new toy from RNA is perfect for this deck, making your creatures uncounterable. The +1/+1 Counters allows us to loop any creatures with Persist indefinitely to create infinite tokens!
There're several creatures with "Persist" that you can select from to boost this combo. Sadly only 1 of them is a Shaman.
Puppeteer Clique - While not a Shaman, I want to give it a special mention. Being able to recur your opponents' creatures in fun and powerful.
Blasting Station - Capable of dealing inifnite damage once you establish the loop with your Commander in play.
Phyrexian Altar - More sacrifice outlet as combo enabler.
Cauldron of Souls - Grants all your Shaman "Persist" for more shenanigans.
Patriarch's Bidding - Fits the tribal theme perfectly.
Selvala's Stampede - A hidden gem, especially in a multiplayer game. Highly recommend this card when you've high costing creatures in the deck.
I'd also recommend increasing the number of sacrifice outlets and recursion spells in the deck.
Hope you find these suggestions useful. Cheers!

Thanks for the reply, . That makes a lot of sense. I noticed you run some cards to check creatures out of your hand and was wondering if you've tried out Selvala's Stampede and Lurking Predators as well?

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.
I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.
Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.
Let me know how the list comes along.

msanchez13 thanks for your suggestions it really helped out! I was thinking about using Impervious Greatwurm but was worried about finding room for it. I didn't know about Selvala's Stampede but it fits perfectly into the deck.

Selvala's Stampede has lead to some truly broken turns in my deck

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and ferocious keyword cards like See the Unwritten might be worth a look as you're going big. Selvala's Stampede and Oath of Druids are similar cards that cheat big creatures into play.
Rancor is an easy include for trample enabling.
