Shapers' Sanctuary Discussion

Murphy77 on Crazy Cat Menagerie, RIX update [Standard, Budget]

I like the addition of Huatli, Radiant Champion to this deck. In a similar deck, I went with 4 each of Adorned Pouncer and Sacred Cat, leaving out Feral Prowler

In place of Verdant Rebirth and Shapers' Sanctuary, I went with Anointed Procession and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip and replaced your white 4-drop defence cards with Heroic Intervention.

My thought pattern is that you can dominate the field with 1/1 cat tokens (kittens) that are boosted by Radiant Destiny, Regal Caracal and Metallic Mimic and you want to get there as early as possible. Anointed Procession is a must. I have also played around with Lifecrafter's Bestiary to modify what you draw and Mirage Mirror to copy Regal Caracal, Pride Sovereign or Anointed Procession as required.

Pabs4444 This isn't my deck so I can't make any decisions but I can tell you why those cards are subpar. Larger Than Life is Sorcery speed and costs 2 mana, which makes it practically useless. Blighted Agent and Glistener Elf are far better than Ichorclaw Myr. Besides, Infect usually doesn't run too many creatures so it is unnecessary in colors with better options. Assault Strobe effects can be used in Infect, however it makes the deck more inconsistent and reliant on those cards. After the banning of Gitaxian Probe and the printing of Fatal Push last year, Infect has evolved from more of a rush berserk deck to more responsive. That is why cards like Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense are good.

clayperce This seems great. I have been playing Infect for about four years and unlike most decks here on TappedOut I have nothing demoralizing to say. I highly reccomend Shapers' Sanctuary, but it is in your maybeboard already. If you want, I have a primer for my deck, however I recently added Black and switched to Sultai.

Anyway, I love the deck. For the glory of Phyrexia!

Journey to Eternity  Flip maybe? I will say that Shapers' Sanctuary will give you overwhelming card advantage against half the decks out there and is at least worth a spot in the sideboard.

I moved away from energy after the bans, but do you find yourself out of energy a lot without Attune with Aether to back you up? You might consider Woodweaver's Puzzleknot if you do.

Shapers' Sanctuary sticks better than any walking stick though.. just my 2 cents.. but tutorable cards has its plus.. well whatever suits your meta i guess.. :)

Wow, i didn't know of Display of Dominance's existence and totally forgot about Back to Nature, thanks.

Also, i'm dubious between the cheaper Shapers' Sanctuary and the tutorable Prowess of the Fair.

Just fyi Masters 25 is not going to be standard legal. None of the other masters sets have been and I don't see that changing anytime soon. So it doesn't really matter what gets printed there for this deck.

Fumigate does hurt you but the point of using it is to hurt your opponent more. The situations where you should definitely use it are subjective as it comes down to creature quality on board, how many cards they have in hand vs your hand, and how fast you can rebuild. Flipping your Golden Guardian  Flip makes boardwipes like fumigate really good for you since you can consistently make more 4/4s whereas your opponent probably cannot.

Settle the wreckage is another good option but not as good since you lose the lifegain, ramp your opponent some lands, and also requires that your opponent is attacking you with the creatures. If they either don't swing/ swing with only a few creatures they can play around it effectively and you have to leave 4 mana open every turn to hold up the threat of a settle which then leaves you behind on board and in threats.

As for more sideboard recommendations Shapers' Sanctuary is a pretty good option for a heavy control match-up. Also Aethersphere Harvester is another decent option for some protection from decks with alot of fliers/ lifegain against Hazored/other really fast aggro decks. Maybe even a copy of 2 of Prowling Serpopard if you're really worried about control.

for sideboard i like Shapers' Sanctuary in the side board for cheap semi-anti removal.

some Grafdigger's Cage. and Relic of Progenitus for graveyard and storm hate.

maybe some Back to Nature and Creeping Corrosion?

Display of Dominance is really good for liliana and the newly unbanned jace.
