Stoneshaker Shaman Discussion

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.

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.
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.

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.

Selfless Spirit helps against board wipes.

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.
