Elvish Piper

Creature — Elf Shaman

, : You may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield.

Great build. I think I have a Piper deck somewhere around here, and I vaguely recall getting good utility out of Fauna Shaman.

You’re creature heavy (in a good way), so odds are you’ll have something to dump in exchange for either Elvish Piper if you need it or else a wincon if it’s already in play.

Not sure if it’ll work in your current setup but I figure I’d mention it.

Yup, you can name any nonland card. It doesn't matter where the card is being cast from, or whether it's cast as part of a triggered ability like cascade. Your opponents still won't be able to cast it. This won't stop effects that put the card directly into play like Elvish Piper

It definitely feels different, and more distinct from Dash. At this point, I'm going to go back to my first question: is this going to be mostly triggered, activated, or something else? I'm trying to eyeball an appropriate cost or timing for this. Quicksilver Amulet has an activation cost of , and Elvish Piper is , so that's a starting point.

Next thought is that it needs either a timing restriction or a marker on the "if it would die" clause. If it survives for two turns, then dies, do you want it to return to hand? If so, it needs a counter or something. If not, it needs and "until end of turn" clause or similar in there.

It at least feels less easily broken, but it's still potentially pretty powerful, especially with multiple uses for each turn. I'm going to ask for an example card at this point, and gauge off that.

Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated!

Balaam__ do you have any suggestions in terms of ramp cards that could be added? The good ones that i now of are unfortunately not legal in modern...

wallisface yeah, testing the deck I saw that te first few turns I had nothing that could be done. I was thinking about replacing Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge and Helm of the Host in favor of something that costs less to play.

jdogz32 that combo looks indeed very interesting. I personally prefer maintaining the deck mono red, but I'll think about your suggestion, maybe adding other green cards like Elvish Piper to cheat bigger dragons into play. I'll defenetly add the Shivan Devastator, looks really cool!

sean360 Thank you for commenting.

As described, the deck funktions pretty darn well without Prophet of Kruphix, since it’s only value is to untap and activate the abilities (Kenessos or the cheat-effects). I don’t remember hardcasting any of the fattiest yet with her ability yet. Would be an easy swap :D

Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet are just for redundancy. Since it cannot be avoided to draw one of these, i must have an opportunity to cheat them in. Piper is not that mana-intense, but slow… Amulett can be activated, when it hits, which is only good, when i have said untappes (Prophet/Seedborn).

As it turned out, Season of Growth, Aqueous Form and Monster Manual have turned out to be MVPs in the deck. The provide so much value, it’s absurd.

Training Grounds is on my extended want list, but not in my budget currently :D

I would appreciate an up, if you like it. I will check yours, maybe get some inspiration.

Quicksilver Amulet, Elvish Piper, Monster Manual, Sol Ring, Lurking Predators, Sneak Attack etc come to mind. Also, i'd add 8-9 lands. 37-38 seems appropriate for this deck. If they don't lack flavour the usual supects like Birds of Paradise, maybe Exploration or the other one. Mayael the Anima

Personally, I think Quest for Ula's Temple is a total trap. It only gets a counter roughly 1/3 of turns. They payoff is nice, but not as nice as in a 60-card format where the payoff is proportionally larger and it's easier to have a deck be 2/3 creatures and get the counters up faster.

I had it in my sea monster deck for a long time and it always disappointed. Coral Capers -- (Budget Seamonsters) and Tidal Trouble. Check 'em out!

You'd be far better off with Monster Manual or Elvish Piper, or a big ramper like Traverse the Outlands, Gilded Lotus, etc. Or just another card-draw card.
