"The sun was born within its coils, but it fled to the sky. The wurm hungers for its child, and the world will bear it's loss." - Screed of the Mul Daya
Mayael travels with her retinue as the Wurm wreaks havoc on the lands. She has assembled her advisors and they seek the one who can tame the Wurm...Mayael has called on the God of Revels and God of Victory, and with the aide of her ally Garruk Wildspeaker , she will prevail.
This is my Mayael the Anima toolbox deck. Its kind of aggro-y but it takes enough time to set up that it's kind of midrange-y too.
I like to put all my ducks in a row before I go on offense.
helps me find Mirari's Wake
, Privileged Position
or Wild Pair
depending on what is appropriate. Enlightened Tutor
does the same thing OR grabs me my Birthing Pod
or mana rocks if/when I need them.
In the past, I've found it ridiculously hard to kill Academy Rector off...enter Birthing Pod ! I can find a useful but expendable five drop to pod away next turn, cough cough Karmic Guide cough cough Double Score! I like toolbox decks. Between Wild Pair and Pod, there are few creatures I don't have access to at a moments notice.
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is the mana doubler I've been looking for. (supplemented by Mirari's Wake ) I can now power out creatures AND my artifacts and enchantments. Too bad he's a Wild Pair loner. (again, unless Mirari's Wake is active)
Wild Pair is the main engine for the deck. I like to think it all works nicely in isolation, but with Wild Pair everything falls together. Answers and card advantage start falling out of my hand. Now that I have Vorinclex, I dont have to choose between Mayael activations and casting enchantments.
Regal Force and Knollspine Dragon provide one-shot draw power, so much of it at times that I've ended up adding Reliquary Tower . Those heavy one-timers are supplemented by Soul of the Harvest , Garruk, Primal Hunter and Drumhunter . These guys pull pretty decent grinder minutes too.
Warstorm Surge +Knollspine Dragon draws me a fresh hand. Both of these cards sat on the bench for awhile during testing, but they're both too useful to ignore. The more graveyard interaction I bring in the more useful Knollspine Dragon becomes.
Warstorm Surge creates some EtB burn. Spot removal on demand...theoretically.
What does everyone think? It's reaching a happy point, and I find it very fun to play, but suggestions, +1's and conversation are always welcome. The game is always evolving.
I'm also considering changing this to a Gahiji, Honored One build to be a bit more political and a little less of a target...
I haven't been able to play this deck in it's most recent form lately, but it finally happened this week.
I had two games, which I learned a lot.
Game 1: Don't piss off the Scion of the Ur-Dragon player when you don't have flying defense ready...lost to Commander Damage...first one knocked out.
Game 2: The deck recovered from Wash Out
naming green on turn 6, which bounced my Garruk Wildspeaker
, beast token and Wild Pair
back to my hand. The Kira, Great Glass-Spinner
player ended up countering my Avacyn (which the Scion player ended up reanimating...) and Venser, Shaper Savant
ing my Sigarda and I still won.
1: null set
5: null set
9: null set
15: null set
With the addition of Mirari's Wake this becomes even more fun and complicated.
This deck has some very fun things going on in it now.
Add Aurelia, the Warleader to the above...that's not very nice...
I wish Birthing Pod could be used at instant speed...
More to come. Let me know if there are any you see!
impressive collection of combos may be revisiting my mayael deck soon rofl
I quite enjoy this deck, and the way everything stacks at times is kind of ridiculous.
