Shaman of the Great Hunt Discussion

KongMing on Animar Big Stuff

Heya! I like the deck idea overall, Temur is a great color combination, and Animar can be really explosive and fun.

You already have some cards here that have +1/+1 counter synergy - I would say go all out with this prong of your strategy.

Hardened Scales doubles the speed with which Animar builds counters, and helps all the other +1/+1 counter triggers get better.

Longshot Squad, Sapphire Drake, and Tuskguard Captain/Crowned Ceratok give Animar (and anything else with a +1/+1 counter) Reach, Flying, and Trample respectively.

Ridgescale Tusker enables your board by putting a +1/+1 on everything but himself, and accelerates Animar futher.

Shaman of the Great Hunt might be good for some mid-game card draw, and helps spread the +1/+1 counters around.

Creatures with Kickers and X in their CMC are also great choices, because they can really benefit from how big Animar's reduction can get. Some ideas are Grunn, the Lonely King, Altered Ego, Fungal Behemoth, and Verdeloth the Ancient.

Okay, one for the lulz as well. Big time synergy with Animar's Protection from Black coming from Singe. Problematic blocker in your way? NOT ANYMORE! Singe makes them Black until end of turn, so Animar can swing through for the win. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHhhhhh...

+1 frome definitely. Looks fun. Heavy on the morph mechanic. Idk if I've ever seen Mischievous Quanar before! Having a bunch keeps ppl guessing. Day's Undoing is another neat one after you dump your hand

I'd maybe suggest a little more draw card? Secret Plans, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Shaman of the Great Hunt, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Consecrated Sphinx, etc. Most are expensive tho. There's tutors but you're not going for combo so eh

Animar is the best; I hope you smash your friends!

Nobody knows for sure (except maybe the artist), but I'm guessing the character on Winterflame is Shaman of the Great Hunt (even though the axe silhouette isn't quite right), who is possibly Chianul (from the flavor text).There's more about Temur shamans, Chinual, and the Dragon's Throat in this guide and he or she also left some flavor text on these three cards.

But yeah, it could be Garruk, Apex Predator (even though the axe silhouette isn't quite right for him either). Garruk has never officially been to Tarkir, but he could have travelled there right after meeting the Planeswalker 'Icy' at the end of this story, if maybe he thought Icy came from Tarkir or something ...

ZendikariWol on Color Rulings in the 99

Probably in the faq but I'm not digging. Can you have cards in the 99 whose color is in your commander's identity, but whose color identity is outside your commander's? For example, could you run General Tazri is a Munda, Ambush Leader deck? Or Shaman of the Great Hunt in a Neheb, the Eternal deck?

Love it +1 from me definitely!

Nantuko Vigilante is one I mulled over for a while. Glad to see it in here. Draining Whelk is another neat one and hardly anybody plays it (I run it in my rashmi deck). Animar does have a lot of control options. Like Duplicant's cousin Phyrexian Ingester. They're all high cmc though

What do you think about Thrasios, Triton Hero and Shaman of the Great Hunt? They don't have an etb ability, but can keep you in the game after you dump your hand

What's your main target for Expedition Map? It's really good with Cavern of Souls and co, but I'd consider Wood Elves since it replaces the one green mana spent to cast it ;)

Once you start adding from your maybeboard (Bloom Tender, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Palinchron) you could probably drop down to 36 land.

Anywho, have fun! Feel free to check out my animar deck and tell me what you think! Cheers!

Purephantom on Animar Soul of Hate

I play a similar deck, but with a subtheme of bouncing and I can confirm that you will generate hate. Some notable cards: Bane of Progress , Maelstrom Wanderer , Somberwald Sage , Cyclonic Rift , Beastcaller Savant , Sylvan Caryatid , Balefire Dragon , Shaman of the Great Hunt

I also think Endless One could be replaced for a stronger card because you cant use Animar's buff for contributing to the X cost.

Looks like fun though!

JuQ on Yasova EDH

Looks better indeed, those counters will prove useful. I love the Shaman of the Great Hunt In fact I had it in the back of my head.

I'm thinking about the Obsidian Battle-Axe. I'm using it in a Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck I'm trying. The best thing of the card is the haste, but Yasova it's not like Alesha, she doesn't need to attack to do her thing. Auto attaching equipments are cool, but I think in this deck that one is underperforming, if you draw it when Yasova is already on the table equipping it a pain in the neck. Using it to give haste to your other creatures is also difficult. The only other warrior in your deck already has haste.
It also has same CMC as Yasova and you would have to delay her one turn. If you use it for the cheap +2 power you could just use Bonesplitter and move it around when you need for just .
My weapon of choice for her is still Runechanter's Pike. First Strike is a tremendous advantage for her, either attacking or blocking and as soon as you have two instant or sorceries in your graveyard it will already be better than the other similar option, No-Dachi, and the ceiling of this card is super high.

pskinn01 on Stack interaction

Creature spells on the stack are not creatures, but spells. So they can only be targeted by spells that target spells. So Lightning Bolt can not target a spell on the stack.

Spells only care what the game state looks like as it is cast and/or as it resolves. See the Unwritten checks as it resolves. So it will see the Shaman of the Great Hunt. But you would need a way to give See the Unwritten flash, as it is a sorcery and can not normally be cast in response to another spell.
