Stacking the top of your library with Mayael is great. Sylvan Library , Mirri's Guile , and Sensei's Divining Top are great for this. Illusionist's Bracers is a solid piece of equipment for Mayael, allowing you to perhaps get two creatures out. She's mana-intensive, too, so you need ramp: Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent are worth considering.

I see the appeal of playing with Mayael, but I've found her to be way to slow and too mana-intensive to be worth playing. A great card that fits the same theme is Call of the Wild , which has a cheaper activation that is repeatable. Zoologist is better, than Mayeal, even though she has to tap, too. Both are great to run for some redundancy.

Looking good! In these "Oops! All creatures" builds, cards like Vizier of the Menagerie and Zoologist are good for securing card advantage, since more often than not, the top card of your library will be a creature. Courser of Kruphix helps you play off the top of your deck even more often! It might also be worth considering Heartwood Storyteller and Nullstone Gargoyle , since you can be sure their abilities will never backfire on you - and the latter can even be fetched by Conduit of Ruin.

Some options for getting some of the fatties into play you could look into could be Call of the Wild and Zoologist , or the fan-favorite Elvish Piper . The first two can be good options if you use some top-deck manipulation, such as Soothsaying , Sylvan Library , Mirri's Guile , and Sensei's Divining Top and even Scroll Rack . If you've got some fun creatures like Peregrine Drake or his big brother, Palinchron or Great Whale , you can really dump some fatties off the top of the library.

Zoologist might be good!

If you're looking to cheat things into play, Elvish Piper is great, and Quicksilver Amulet is useful in a few ways. Sure, it costs to activate, but it becomes mana fixing in a pinch, and allows you to sneak something out at the end of the last player's turn, providing pseudo-haste. Both the Piper and the Amulet mean the creature can't be countered, either, which is solid if counterspells are a problem for you.

Other 'cheat into play' cards you might not think of in include Call of the Wild and Zoologist. There are some great cards you could run to help set those cards up, like Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, Sensei's Divining Top, Soothsaying, and even Scroll Rack. I'm not sure you would want to make that many changes to the deck, but they are a few other thoughts maybe outside the box to think about.

Wow, these are quite some strong and complicated cards for a 7 year old! You might throw Scroll Rack into the mix as well. Rings of Brighthearth would be another way to copy the activated ability of Mayael the Anima.

I also noticed some cool cards in your deck that I didn't know before: I might consider Zoologist, Call of the Wild and Game Preserve for myself.

Can't wait to see how this plays out. I'm in the process of putting one of these together for my son, but using Mayael the Anima as the commander. My thoughts were to use cards like Call of the Wild and Zoologist to cheat the cost of getting the dinos out, setting up the library with Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, and Sensei's Divining Top.

I like Pyrohemia. Nice way to trigger the Enrage mechanic. Looks like fun!

Also just wanted to say I really enjoy your show, and I try to listen to a couple of episodes every night while I'm driving around at work. I started from the beginning of your episodes, because I figure it can help me with getting back into Magic.

Keep up the good work!

Getting on the Naya train? I approve! Mayael is an excellent starting commander!

Oracle of Mul Daya and Courser of Kruphix have great topdeck synergy with Mayael! (As does Lens of Clarity, but it's mostly a pauper top.)

Soul of the Harvest may not be a Dino, but its good for what you want to do, I recommend it.

I still have to get a Zoologist and Call of the Wild for my deck!

You probably know all this, but the deck looks good! I hope your son likes it!
