Shaman of the Great Hunt Discussion

+1 from me. Yidris is rad. Thanks for +1ing my deck!

I like your inclusion of stuff like Shriekmaw, Mulldrifter, etc that get extra value points. Bring to Light is neat. Grozoth is f'n Grozoth. What're your favorite targets for both BtL and Groz? Jace, the Mind Sculptor has amazing synergy. Dropping things from your hand to topdeck... then cascade into it mwahaha

With so many creatures in here, if you can can drop $20+, Animar, Soul of Elements is the jam. He's my #1 favorite commander. You'll explode if you can attack w yidris+animar every turn. Shaman of the Great Hunt makes them vampires +1/+1

I have noncreature permanents I could suggest, but that doesn't seem to be your angle(?) Savage Ventmaw will fit your bill. Along with Urabrask and Maelstrom Wanderer to hit the ground running (hit the air running?). There's a bunch of infinite combat step combos with the ventmaw and Aggravated Assault, etc

I'm sure you'll have fun w it! Cheers!

Yep still blue in color identity so Shaman of the Great Hunt is a no go

Hey, looking pretty good there except for Shaman of the Great Hunt as he counts as red/green/blue for his color identity due to the hybrid mana costs on his ability. If your group is cool with that then no worries, just thought I'd point it out.

I like the idea of him in the deck, I may take out a Shaman of the Great Hunt for him, he lives longer against burn.

kalko - I checked out some other "3CMC 4 or more power creatures" but none of the seem too appealing, plus it would cripple my mana curve. If you have any specific suggestions I would love to hear it.

FYI on creatures I think you are referring to.

I chose Dragonmaster Outcast for its cost, and 5/5 flying dragons that trigger ascendancy. I also chose Sylvan Advocate for its cost, triggers ascendancy with 6 or more lands, vigilance, & boosts land creatures I control. I also chose Shaman of the Great Hunt for its abilities, card draw and pumps all my creatures

Read your decklist and was like "Thank god my aggro is relentless". The first problem I see is two Maelstrom pulse was entered twice

Also, though Whispersilk Cloak and Sword of Feast and Famine are nice, you can need to protect your Ydris with all you got if you want this deck to work,

You're going to need Lightning Greaves at least with possibly a Swiftfoot Boots

I'd recomend taking a lot of those creatures out to, like Goblin Dark-Dwellers(you can do better), Kruphix, God of Horizons(blah), Shaman of the Great Hunt (again, you can do better and) Sidisi, Undead Vizier (this card is good, but has a strong nitch in a lot of things, but it's not here. On my bio is a black/white deck that runs it. Check it out.)

-1x Goblin Dark-Dwellers

-1x Kruphix, God of Horizons

-1x Shaman of the Great Hunt

-1x Sidisi, Undead Vizier

-1x Zendikar Resurgent <=not even a creature, or good

+1 Lightning Greaves // 8 dollars maybe, but essential to this Ydris creature

+1 Swiftfoot Boots

+1 Sword of Fire and Ice //Invest in a Darksteel one. it's worth it. IF not, well, Fireshrieker

+1 Fabricate // with all these artifacts that are essential, you need a tutor

+1 Tezzeret the Seeker // and a stronger tutor


+1 Ob Nixilis Reignited // or a strong finsher if price is an issue.

now theres a strong voltron sub-theme with greater protection

Okay, so the way I see it, this is another deck idea that's mostly there, but can go into a few different directions. The first would be to keep the deck G/R and turn it into a traditional ramp deck, with mana dorks and ramp spells that can build you up to a fast Surrak, the Hunt Caller, a fat Crater's Claws, or whatever eldrazi, dragon, or planeswalker you have lying around. Typical ramp stuff...

If you want to keep the deck with a strong "Ferocious" theme, I would recommend moving it into temur colors, which give you some truly efficient threats. With the addition of blue, you gain Surrak Dragonclaw, Savage Knuckleblade, Temur Ascendancy, Icefall Regent, and increased usability of Shaman of the Great Hunt. Other sweet efficient threats are either Atarka, Thunderbreak Regent, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, See the Unwritten, Whisperer of the Wilds, Lambholt Pacifist  Flip, the list goes on. The important thing is that you don't fall into the trap of gimmicky creatures that are actually very mana-inefficient, like Qal Sisma Behemoth.
