Stoneshaker Shaman Discussion

I think he's referring to more punisher cards that deter draw-go style control decks. Think Price of Glory and Stoneshaker Shaman type effects.

Hmmm. Have you considered Pox, Smallpox, Decree of Annihilation, or Wound Reflection? I think these might be good options to piss off your playgroup ;) Oh, and Ruination and Stoneshaker Shaman of course, if you wanna attack landbases a little more. Toxic Deluge is an amazing board wipe that no RB deck should go without. Finally, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell might be decent to multiply your damage more quickly.

@shwanerz88: The wastes are placeholders until I make my cuts and figure out what distribution of basics I want. I think you're right that 37 lands is too many, does 36 seem right?

@ZendikariWol: Anowon is a good card that just also happens to be a shaman. Given that I will (likely) have Graveborn to sacrifice, or get graveborn from sacrificing my other creatures, he isn't very harmful. He also strikes the right balance of strength, without being oppressive and unfun like Grave Pact . Fauna Shaman and the Lich are in the same boat, I don't do much with my graveyard but they're good cards. Card selection and tutoring with a relevant creature type is nice. I think I want to hold onto the creature-only mana producers because I currently have a high creature count and need the fixing. If I end up going down to <35 creatures I'll probably drop most of them. Stoneshaker Shaman is a card that makes my opponent's interaction harder without really hindering mine. There isn't a whole lot of combo at my LGS so I'm not too worried about other people slipping dangerous things past the control players. Mazirek is there because there is an aristocrat subtheme because of Sek'Kuar. He's a shaman who pumps my other dudes.

I've cut the rest though, thank you for your suggestions! Making Graveborns into temporary 6/4's or 5/3's sounded nice, but I agree that Primal Forcemage and Ambuscade Shaman are too narrow.

Suggested cuts:

Ambuscade Shaman and Primal Forcemage : only works with hasty creatures.

Anowon, the Ruin Sage : slow and introduces a different tribal theme- feels out of place, especially to vorthos weirdos like me. Can't have a vampire card in a shaman deck, man!

Beastcaller Savant , Bloodline Shaman , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , and more or less all of your planeswalkers: dependent on the number of creatures in your deck and even without the cut cards has a <50% chance to draw you a card.

Dragon's Herald and Hellkite Overlord seems like an odd package.

Fauna Shaman and Underrealm Lich : you have no reason to stock your graveyard and very few things that get things back from the graveyard.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest - also Door of Destinies : so many people put him in aristocrat decks, it confuses me! Do you want your creatures to die or not??

Mindclaw Shaman : for you to get any real value out of him, you need to be casting an instant or sorcery that costs at least 4 mana. Decide depending on your meta whether that's consistently feasible.

Stoneshaker Shaman : how much instant interaction is there in your meta? If the answer is less than ALL OF IT, this card is bad.

Reach of Branches feels like bulk here. This card belongs in an Azusa, Lost but Seeking deck.

Stoneshaker Shaman is good anti-counter for Godo.

Knollspine Dragon and Chancellor of the Forge weren't even on my radar, those seem fantastic. Just got a Tempt with Vengeance , so that's great! I already have a Tendershoot Dryad , so perhaps it'll take a slot till I find better alternatives. I've been gravitating towards things like War Cadence , Uphill Battle , Stoneshaker Shaman , Release the Gremlins , Overwhelming Instinct , Druids' Repository and Nacatl War-Pride .

Thanks very much mmcgeach. I appreciate it. It's going to be an experiment to see where the balance is, but I think it'll teach me a lot. If you're interested, I'll share the decklist with you when it's up.

Honestly I think the walkers do not go well with this deck. As it is all your threats hit the entire table, there is no disincentive to attacking you since you have no real option but to hit everyone almost equally. I would try to get a decent creature threat base so that at the least you can punish people who attack you more severely.

Thus the walkers you have will just get focussed whenever they come out. Maybe you can try more creatures such as Charmbreaker Devils, Combustible Gearhulk, Mindsparker, Scab-Clan Berserker, Stoneshaker Shaman, Urabrask the Hidden.

Btw if your playgroup allows, you can consider using a staples binder. I do as many of my cards are very expensive and I do not want to damage them during play.
