Shamanic Revelation Discussion
3 days ago
Now that I finally have a chance to look at this... :)
Your removal package seems pretty good. I'd still always try to include a Beast Within, and I think Condemn is the weakest link in this deck's removal (since often you want to remove something that's not attacking).
Your color-fixing looks pretty good overall. Rupture Spire is a second copy of Transguild Promenade, and I'd generally use Reflecting Pool over Meteor Crater (since the latter requires you to already have cast the spell in question to be able to get use out of the land). Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic also help a LOT.
I've built budget landbases like this before, if you want to take a look at this deck's manabase: *RETIRED* An Hour of Wolves: Tazri EDH
Speaking of budgets, I'd cut Cavern of Souls most likely. It's not SUPER relevant in the deck, and it's nearly $50 :(
I saw Karakas in your maybeboard, but I'm afraid to tell you that it's banned in EDH :(
If this turns out to be fully tribal, you could run Cover of Darkness to great effect.
The one big thing you're missing here is draw effects. If the deck turns out to be creature-heavy, you could try cards like Shamanic Revelation or Kindred Discovery or Distant Melody. Otherwise, effects like Abundance, Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study, etc can help a lot :)
Hope that's useful commentary! :) I'll take another look when you've messed with the deck a bit more.

Looks like a pretty sweet list! However, I would consider running a few more ways to recover and/or protect against board wipes. Eldrazi Monument is a great way to both protect your board from destruction and yourself from fliers. Temur Sabertooth is a great way to either give bounce your own creatures to save them from a board wipe, or just eke some additional value out of your etb effects. It also does silly things with a haste enabler on the board, making all kinds of silly infinites possible.
Next, there are some powerful mana producers you might want to consider. Argothian Elder synergizes very nicely with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , and Elvish Guidance, potentially producing enormous amounts of mana. Viridian Joiner can also generate lots of mana, potentially letting you pump multiple more times with Ezuri or just go infinite with Umbral Mantle.
I feel like Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are a little too slow for their intended purpose. Generally elfball decks want to explode early, but run out of gas later. While these cards can give you a bit of sustain, generally you'll already be running low on creatures to trigger them by the time they come down. I suggest Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, and Regal Force as great ways to draw a bunch of cards off of a board of elves, giving you additional value for when your board is cleared.
Finally, mono-green has some issues with fliers. The aforementioned Eldrazi Monument should help with that, but there's another very synergistic option available. Jagged-Scar Archers grows with your elf army, and pings off fliers when its not swinging in for tons of damage.
Hope these suggestions were helpful!

Also, why no Ivy Lane Denizen?

Bane of Progress is one of the best boardwipes for a mono green deck, and can totally swing games in your favor. If you add that in, I would cut Tree of Tales since it doesn't seem to be helping the deck all too much. Some great ramp cards that you can play early are Voyaging Satyr and Arbor Elf, which can untap Nykthos, Jungle Basin, Temple of the False God, or a Forest with Overgrowth or something similar on it. Shamanic Revelation and Harmonize are some of the best single use card draw spells, and Spore Frog provides you with a fog effect while also adding to your green devotion.

Hello, really fun deck you've got going here, it's been nice to follow its continuous development. I have some thoughts, forgive me if they contain too many things you already know:
How is Curse of Predation working out for you? I feel the deck already has OK weenie support and that the slot could be better served making it more consistent by patching up its weak points
Some sets of possible drawpower alternatives:
3 or greater power creature-based (I realize the deck is weenie-oriented and that these may therefor not be suitable): Elemental Bond/(Garruk's Packleader) + some combination of Rampaging Baloths, Inexorable Blob and (Blade of Selves)
Someone mentioned Recruiter of the Guard so I'd thought I'd point out the old-school Imperial Recruiter as a possible alternative to it for the sake of completion. Out of the cards in the current deck they each have exclusive access to the following creatures:
Guard: Fumiko, Mirri & Tireless Tracker
Imperial: Selvala & Windborn Muse
Finally, a somewhat radical & meta-dependent suggestion that would probably require other changes: Angel of Jubilation. It hates on sac engines trying to abuse your gifted tokens, but it conflicts with Selfless Spirit and the three fetchlands (And you might find that it comes in a bit too late due to its mana cost, both in terms of CMC & symbols)

Hey, I've played Prossh some myself and there are some cards missing in your list that I've had great experiences with: Eldritch Evolution is amazing in this deck, since sacrificing the commander can get Craterhoof Behemoth. But even aside from that, it's a great card that finds you the creature you need quickly and for a reasonable cost.
Tainted Strike is potentially the best pump spell for Prossh. It's extremely easy to 1-hit kill someone with that.
Cryptolith Rite turns all your creatures into mana producers, which is insane with all the tokens generared by Prossh. It allows for some very explosive turns. Earthcraft can be even better since it allows summoning sick creatures to tap for mana, but the card is way more expensive.
Shamanic Revelation also makes use of the number of creatures generated by Prossh - usually you draw 6-10 cards and gain some life for just 5 mana.
Shaman of Forgotten Ways is another excellent tool for Prossh, since it ramps into the commander nicely, then turns into serious threat with it's formidable ability.

MagicalHacker: Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord fits the bill alright. But as mentioned, OP already had a golgari deck, So I am making the assumption that they should still have the cards available (please let me know if that's not the case). The addition of a few red/X lands (see Savage Lands, Gruul Guildgate and friends, Transguild Promenade, Rupture Spire) as well as staples like Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds would be more than sufficient for splashing red, givin gaccess to Prossh, Skyraider of Kher who is $2 from star city games.
Prossh will provide the deck with good token production which is much more resilient to graveyard hosing than a monoblack deck which relies on recursion eninges. The addition of green also gives access to ramp cards such as Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, etc which will drastically increase the speed of the deck compared to the heavy reliance on mana rocks that mono black will need (also helps with colour fixing).
Red will also give access to cheap wheel effects such as Reforge the Soul ($3 from SCG), Chandra, Flamecaller ($4 from SCG), Dragon Mage ($1 from SCG) which will drastically help increase the deck's output, not to mention cards like Fecundity and even just getting additional value off Skullclamp as the tokens produced have 1 toughness ompared to the typical 2 toughness that you'd see in a monoblack deck (since you're most likely going to be making zombies). Plus spells like Shamanic Revelation will draw you a crap load of cards (50c on SCG).
For low budget decks, having access to green makes them much better overall compared to any other colour. It has a good range of effects and havin access to land ramp is vital. And head to head, I would put my money on a Prossh deck compared to a Anowon deck of the same cost any day. It's more explosive and Prossh himself provides the deck with a self contained win condition.

This is very budget right now because I still need to build it and test it. Grasslands, Mountain Valley, and Naya Panorama are just budget options for Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, and Arid Mesa. I had Cultivate and Farseek in here before, but I took them out for options that can be abused with tokens. They may very well go back in after testing.
I've been on the fence about Beastmaster Ascension and decided to use Collective Blessing instead because I have it. Thunderfoot Baloth and Overwhelming Stampede will definitely be thought about. I still need to find a good ratio between Pump and Tokens.
I have Shamanic Revelation in already with Skullclamp, Slate of Ancestry, and Fecundity. I wanted to try and make room for Harmonize but now Collective Unconscious has to go in. I always lean towards fewer multi-use spells than more single use, which might be the wrong mentality.
Thank you so much for the suggestions. Do you have and suggestions on what to take out?
