Shaman of Forgotten Ways Discussion

Nice to see a fresh fellow kruphix player's take. A couple suggestions I have looking at your list:

Selvala's Stampede is one of the best sorceries you can cast given the high CMCs you are likely to hit with either wild or free. Also, Shaman of Forgotten Ways is a great early game ramp and late game biorhythm threat. Of note, you can still float the shaman mana in Kruphix, but need to track it separately as the creature only restriction remains. I would suggest Wall of Blossoms and Overgrown Battlement be pulled to make room as both seem weak and off theme for this deck.

I like to drain life with my Meren. I use Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord with some bigger dudes. I also use Gray Merchant of Asphodel who gets a little out of control with Panharmonicon.

And because Biorhythm is banned in commander I like Shaman of Forgotten Ways for a hilarious finish once the board is mine. If you're playing against a lifegain deck make sure to include useful cards like Torgaar, Famine Incarnate and Tree of Perdition. Nobody resets life like .

You play green, man!

Leave all this silly fixing with lands to colors that don't know how to ramp and color fix.



Kodama's Reach

Nature's Lore


If you are willing to spend a bit and don't mind to play creature ramp:

Greenweaver Druid

Rattleclaw Mystic

Shaman of Forgotten Ways

Somberwald Sage

Sylvan Caryatid

Also, there are better cheap alternatives to some cards. Jace's Ingenuity -> Urban Evolution Cathartic Reunion -> any blue draw spell

Counterspells are bad in maelstrom. You never want to see them from cascade, its the worst. Or at least play counterspells with some alternative upside. Also, 4 mana counters mostly suck.

Cut Overwhelming Denial Cancel Dispel

Add Mystic Confluence Swan Song Stubborn Denial

Also, some cards are mostly useless

Gaea's Blessing

The Unspeakable

Zo-Zu the Punisher (good card, wrong deck)

True. I bring up ulamog because of pillow fort and control decks.

I don't know what your meta is but control is pretty heavy at my LGS from Brago, King Eternal to Angus Mackenzie.

And I've been playing my mono green Savala since I pulled her in pack on draft night when conspiracy take the crown came out.

My preferred wincon is playing Temur Sabertooth and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger bouncing ulamog and recasting it to Exile all my opponents permanents.

Followed by playingAkroma's Memorial and Shaman of Forgotten Ways. Then activating its ability to make my opponents life 0. I prefer this because it gets around lifegain and cards like Solitary Confinement and MacKenzie's ability.

Skyshroud Claim is better than Explosive Vegetation. Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma can reduce the costs of your creatures and give trample. You could try Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant as another way to ramp when you have drawn lots of cards from Grothama. Shaman of Forgotten Ways can ramp while providing an alternative wincon when you have enough mana.
