Shapers of Nature Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion. I defiantly want to drop the Shapers of Nature. I was thinking of one more Chart a Course and one more Herald of Secret Streams.

I like the way this deck comes together. One thing I would suggest is to lose the 2 Shapers of Nature. They're great in limited, but a little mana intensive for what you have going on here.

Maybe replace them with 2 more Chart a Course. Given your curve, you're probably going to run out of cards pretty fast.

UPDATE!i got the cards last week, gonna try with and without River Sneak. put them in de side deck for now if sneakyness is required. still trying to decide between Blossoming Defense and Dive Down. River Heralds' Boon is a stay but for beefy decks extra combat tricks are welcome. dive down's main adavantage is it only costs one blue sharing with Opt and Spell Pierce so you only need to keep open one blue instead of one blue and one green for blossoming defense. blossoming defense however has 2+/+2 instead of +0/+3 making it more aggresive and able to take out bigger creatures. still a little uncertain about Deeproot Waters. also, do i need flying defense? do Shaper Apprentice and One With the Wind deserve side deck spots? Shapers of Nature seem nice, but i'm hoping to win before late game arrives so i think it will slow the deck down too much. but i could try and see if it works :). got 2 Spell Pierce and 2 Opt maindecked now but doubting which one is better, need 4 of each in side deck anyways for spell heavy deck protection or extra searchpower but which one deserves the main deck spot O: ?also adjusted lands to match new mana base (almost exactly 50/50 now xD)

also, thanks for the advice

Yeah, I agree with boo126 about having 4x Kumena's Speaker and Merfolk Branchwalker and cutting River Sneak, but I suggest maybe taking out the Tishana's Wayfinder for some Shapers of Nature. These can get pretty nice later in the game when you have nothing to do with your mana.

Otherwise, love the deck so +1!

It depends what theme you want for your deck. I think merfolk could be a competitive, cheap to make deck.

If you go with that, I would put more of these guys: Merfolk Branchwalker, Tishana's Wayfinder, Shapers of Nature, and Watertrap Weaver.

I would also try to get a hold of some Vineshaper Mystic, Kumena's Speaker, and maybe Herald of Secret Streams and River Heralds' Boon.

I don't know what's in the deckbuilder's toolkit, but eBay is a good place to get 4x of a single card (uncommons and commons usually all 4x for $1).

eleventhend I have set not considered Shapers of Nature, have not seen Herald of Secret Streams in play. I have thought about playing some number of walkers and Heart of Kiran.

Have you considered Shapers of Nature?

With all the +1/+1 counters you already have Herald of Secret Streams might also be worth considering as a finisher

Just played an Ixalan draft this weekend and got some good mileage out of these. Not sure if it'll work in your format though

I can only think of situational cards for your side board, but if I could suggest one I would say Shapers of Nature
