Boseiju, Who Shelters All Discussion

Alright, all very valid points. If you're set to focus on speed and all in on this particular combo, it might be the right shell for Boseiju, Who Shelters All, although a land that only gives colorless and enters tapped is not so appealing. Would something like Pull from Eternity make you less soft to GY hate or is that too niche? It would mean you can be a little bit more liberal with what you exile during Breach turns.

As Foretold can be a great way to start free casting counters, then you spend mana on draw and wincons.
Arcane Laboratory might be used to "counter" any extra spells people have. You only have to worry about one spell a turn.
Lands: You mana base can use some work. Myriad Landscape can help ramp if you sacrifice turn 1. Boseiju, Who Shelters All can help prevent counter wars. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx breaks even with azami but might not be great...
That's all I can think of! I built a Baral deck a while back: Mr. Blue Sky | Baral EDH. Check it out, you might find something you like!

I’m building this deck and appreciate the thinking put into it. What would you think of Boseiju, Who Shelters All as protection for casting Ad Nauseum and Insidious Dreams, among other sorceries and instants?

I know that the preferred option is Cephalid Illusionist + Nomads en-Kor over Blood Pet. I'm guessing the primary reason is for the inclusion of Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, since the two creatures work well with him outside of the hulk combo. I also understand that the benefit they provide is that once Flash resolves, you don't have to cast any more spells (meaning that you can rock Boseiju, Who Shelters All if you really want to, which this list does).
On the topic of Blood Pet though, the comments say it is a dip in card quality outside of combo. Is this purely due to Cephalid Illusionist's ability to prevent damage? Outside of this ability, I would have thought that Blood Pet actiing as a "for future use" mini Dark Ritual was actually the better of the abilities.
On top of this, generally the deployment lines for hulk are either Nomads en-Kor, Cephalid Illusionist and Thassa's Oracle (+ any 1 drop creature); or Blood Pet, Spellseeker (getting Consultation) and Thassa's Oracle. This would imply that the two creature pairs for the combo are either pet/seeker or illusionist/nomads, since you only need one of the two to make the combo work. Of the two of those pairings, the otuside of combo value pairing to me would heavily lean towards seeker/pet as you have a mana source and a tutor on a stick. On top of that, against cards like Linvala, Keeper of Silence or Cursed Totem, you just need to add to make the combo work. And while I know the pet/seeker line gets shut down by Rule of Law type effects, I would think that a stax deck would either run both (Blood Pod) or would rahter shut down creature abilities (GAAIV) rather than limit their spell count.
So is the main tipping point here ultimately just the ability to pair with Boseiju?
On a semi related note, how does this change with addition of red to the deck, since Wild Cantor can take the place of Blood Pet (and is a much stronger card). I recently put together a (completely untested) list for Najeela, the Blade-Blossom which sports the cantor/seeker hulk line: Najeela Fish Hulk and is running sans Jace. In this case, is the cantor/seeker better than the iilusionist/nomads line here or am I still better off swapping?

I see what you are going for, but can I ask why not use Buried Alive or Entomb? A turn 1 Entomb + Griselbrand + Exhume will finish the game really fast... Also, by "tutoring", you can use less creatures in your deck, and open slots for cards like Duress, Collective Brutality, Sign in Blood, Lotus Petal... Disruption is always good, extra draw will fuel your Zombie Infestation and Lotus/Rituals let you chain cards off a Griselbrand activation by giving extra mana.
Against grave hate, I recommend Pithing Needle, Phyrexian Revoker... cards that shut down Tormod's Crypt, Deathrite Shaman and similar. Against counters, Boseiju, Who Shelters All is really good, also Pyroblast.
Hope this helps!

Very nice fish hulk list. The triple stifle is nasty for mirrors indeed, not just from stopping Hulk but also from cards like Survival of the Fittest and fetchlands.
- Grab Grand Abolisher Nomads en-Kor Cephalid Illusionist and any 1 CMC creature
- Breakfast that shizz, mill library with Nomads + Cephalid
- Flashback Dread Return by sacrificing Nomads + Cephalid + 1 CMC dork
- Grand Abolisher on field entire time makes interaction extremely limited for opponents.
- Thassa's Oracle comes from Dread Return, seeing 2 devotion (or more, but 2 from Thassa) on 0 card deck for winning trigger.
No Utopia Sprawl ?
Talk to me about Neoform . It seems like an odd inclusion to me but I see it frequently in hulk lists. Is it just for value for turning 1 CMC dorks into Dark Confidant or Gilded Drake or Grand Abolisher ?

Vorincl3x Thank you for your help and for your time!!! I've removed Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Prismatic Omen for Boseiju, Who Shelters All and Torment of Hailfire . I think that Craterhoof Behemoth is better than Rubblehulk and Finale of Devastation is better than the sage. I also want to keep playing Green Sun's Zenith cuz i can do it in early-game to find Dryad Arbor but i will try to replace it with Worm Harvest . Horn of Greed is a good card for politics and i'v replaced Myojin of Infinite Rage with it.
