Shaman of Forgotten Ways Discussion

I can see that. Cards like that are tough since they're so powerful against certain decks. I'd say go for it however I assure you that you will immediately play against a Jarad, or Yidris next game :)

Have you considered Recruiter of the Guard, and Fiend Hunter? I'm not sure how good it would be in your deck, but Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems like a fun win-con. I know it's off-flavor, but Woodland Bellower?

rockleemyhero Here's my offer. I wil give you Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for a Lightning Greaves(c15), Sword of the Animist, Shaman of Forgotten Ways and an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. I used tcglayer market prices to calculate the value of the products and the trade is about equal.

Cryptolith Rite doesn't make a whole lot of sense. All your low mana creatures already tap more mana and you wouldn't want to be tapping Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for mana either. Also, I don't think you're going to get enough value off of Karametra's Acolyte in a tri-color deck. I think you're much better off with mana dorks like Beastcaller Savant,Shaman of Forgotten Ways or Somberwald Sage

In order to make 5 colors reliably work, it's usually not enough to have mostly lands that produce 1-2 different colors each. 5 color lands (that don't enter tapped) like City of Brass, Mana Confluence and Forbidden Orchard make a big difference, despite their drawbacks (which, in a format with 40 life, aren't so bad). Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool also go a long way to help you produce the right colors. I'm personally a fan of Abundant Growth too.
Since your mana is so demanding and your curve so high, creatures like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways will work wonders here.

A couple unfair cards to close out a game quickly: Shaman of Forgotten Ways and/or Triumph of the Hordes can win you the game out of nowhere.

What about Urabrask the Hidden or Stormbreath Dragon? Urabrask is a great haste enabler that causes opponent's creatures to enter the battlefield tapped, while Stormbreath Dragon is a great beater with haste and superb evasion! Also, have you considered adding in some more ramp? While Bloom Tender, Farseek and Nature's Claim are all fantastic, I feel with all the big 6,7 and 8-drops you have, running a bigger ramp package would be extremely beneficial! Specifically, I would add a few signets, Mana Crypt, Kodama's Reach and a few more mana dorks. Some of my favorite mana dorks are Deathcap Cultivator, Sakura-Tribe Scout, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Shaman of Forgotten Ways! Happy deck building!

P.S. Definite +1 from me!

I prefer Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Elvish Piper, etc. as more flexible ways to get Dragons onto the field quickly. Animar probably would be good, but this ain't an Animar deck and I don't have a copy.
