Dense Foliage is a nice touch! Love that card! Steely Resolve might be a consideration.

Hi there,

Mayael the Anima was my first commander deck. I no longer run her, but there are a few things that I learned while playing her:

1) Protection is key: Because of her ability, Mayael is a lightning rod for removal. I'd think about including cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Dense Foliage (you aren't running much targeted removal anyways), Aspect of Mongoose, or some Umbras.

2) You need a back-up plan: You've already have a few ways besides Mayael to cheat creatures in, but I would highly recommend Hunting Grounds, as well as more ramp/mana doublers like Mirari's Wake

3) Top deck manipulation is the most important thing: In addition to Mirri's Guile, consider adding Sensei's Divining Top, Crystal Ball, Congregation at Dawn, and Scroll Rack (if you have the budget)

Also, some haste enablers like Rhythm of the Wild would be good. And I see that the pair of Avacyn, Angel of Hope/Sigarda, Host of Herons have already been suggested. I would consider the third member of the holy trinity, Archetype of Endurance, for complete protection.

Here's some cards on the top of my mind that might help you out with your land-creature theme!

Hope these will be of any help!

Dense Foliage protects your guys while allowing your creature based abilities to still target.

As for mana sinks how about a couple good old fashioned dragons? Mana-Charged Dragon , Flameblast Dragon , Hoard-Smelter Dragon and Moonveil Dragon stand out as good uses of free mana.

One of my favorite creatures to throw mana at is Hateflayer . You can "untap" it even if it's not tapped, allowing you to wither the living hell out of somebody.

Basalt Monolith is usually for infinite combos and I don't see the other pieces here. Helm of the Host makes another scarecrow for free instead of paying 2 mana like Mirrorworks so thats cool. If your entire deck is removal / scarecrows then anything that gives you Flash is great.

Stolen Identity and Soul Foundry are also good choices, Riku of Two Reflections if you're feeling silly.

Thieves' Auction is hilarious in a Reaper King deck. Everybody is forced to choose your little scarecrows because otherwise each time you put one on the board you destroy something they just chose. If your boss gets killed throw him in the graveyard and Living Death allows you to bring back scarecrows for more destruction.

If you want to put in protection for your boss Clout of the Dominus and Aspect of Mongoose are cheap to cast or Dense Foliage prevents spell removal while still allowing you to do the scarecrow destruct thing.

I stopped playing this type of Reaper King deck because in 1v1 it was pretty degenerate. The potential for land destruction makes this a stupid good deck.

More than anything else I would suggest some kind of graveyard recursion because if you end up facing down 3 decks at once you're going to need more scarecrows...

hkhssweiss - I actually pulled a Standard Bearer in a booster pack from an old box a store had, just last month. Usable if I have a good recursion package out, and keeps to the "jank" theme for sure!

I really like the idea of things like Dense Foliage in this, especially played at the right time. If I wanted to follow that theme of control, I'd need to make sure I threw in some Ghostly Prison and other pillow forts to protect me from people's scary creature. I think that's the biggest worry with this deck, some sort of battlefield presence to stay alive.

I got a neat side idea for pulling ahead! I think the mass land searches that heavily favour me when Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is out could go great with the one card you recommended, Natural Balance... It'd be a strategy for a little later in the game if I have in my hand a couple cards like Weird Harvest or Collective Voyage that give everyone the option (to search themselves to death), I could play Natural Balance to cut everyone's land mass in half, then jump ahead in a huge way. The Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds also put me ahead. Ohhhh. Now I just need some extra ways to make use of that extra value I could have.

So - on your idea, hkhssweiss, what are some good instant or sorcery recursions to keep bringing them back? Eternal Witness is off the top of the head, but there must be some more good ones. Revive. hhmm

goldlion Glad I could have been of some help!

Thinking more on it, since we have a sac outlet on the field, we could possibly gain more value off of it. Say you have Ob Nixilis on the field (With protection of course) and have the tempts, if you have a way to recur them every turn your opponents have a choice whether to let you have more advantage in resources or taking one for the team and having them take 10 damage every time you tempt them. Once you have enough mana you can then force them to control their turn and since you make the decision for them...well you have just killed them LOL!

Some additional protection package, Asceticism, Standard Bearer (A janky Spellskite), Privileged Position, Sylvan Safekeeper, and Dense Foliage.
