Greater Good

Enchantment

Sacrifice a creature: Draw cards equal to the sacrificed creature's power, then discard three cards.

Cool concept! Gorclaw does great work.

Ideas

Traverse the Outlands power based ramp

Momentous Fall or Greater Good type effect draw equal to power.

Thank you for the suggestions SufferFromEDHD. After some consideration I decided to swap out Karametra's Acolyte for Questing Beast (I have a copy in my binders), and Utopia Sprawl for my copy of Birds of Paradise from my recently recycled Brokkos, Apex of Forever deck. I liked Utopia Sprawl since it dodged most of the removal that Mana Dorks are most susceptible to. Is it necessary for a mono-green deck? It's debatable, but I'm usually happy to draw into it early on.

I like Life's Legacy because of its low CMC, although I do like that Momentous Fall is an instant, but don't currently own a copy. I do have a copy of Greater Good though.

I picked up Hall of Gemstone for about $5 a couple of years ago, and was surprised when I saw what its new price is. It's a good card, but I can understand why other players might omit it from their lists between the its effect and the price tag.

As for your other suggestions, I don't currently own copies of any of them, but will consider them a bit more. I'm planning on picking up cards for other decks in the next month or two, but had this deck as one of the lowest in my consideration for new upgrades aside from maybe a Silverback Elder

Thank you for running Hall of Gemstone in your mono green deck. Far too many users on this site leave it out and it always bothers me.

With all those basic forests I think Dust Bowl would be more useful than Field of Ruin

Instead of Life's Legacy what about Greater Good or Momentous Fall?

Green Sun's Zenith + Dryad Arbor + Natural Order = one of the strongest mono green combos

Is Utopia Sprawl necessary in a mono green deck?

Questing Beast should be in the main.

I might run fewer/creatures, since stickfingers will until you reveal x creatures, not just x cards. The fewer you have the higher chance you hit one that destroys the table if you just overload on ramp and reanimates. Rather than these things Crawl from the Cellar,Ghoul's Feast,Gravepurge I'd focus on just reanimating and is easy to get and will probably serve you better. If you really do want it back in your hand Genesis Skullwinder and Eternal Witness do this while attached to a body.

Rather than sending to your hand these will just bring back Diregraf Rebirth, Victimize, Reanimate, Exhume, Unearth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Stitch Together,Dread Return.Geth, Lord of the Vault is expensive but can fill your yard as well as revive others. Finale of Devastation revives or tutors, and is a finisher.

Blossoming Wreath,Gnaw to the Bone probably heal less than lifelink, and there's a ton of ways to give lifelink.

Rampant Growth is slightly inferior to Three Visits and Nature's Lore as long as your dual lands have both typesOvergrown Tomb, Bayou, Woodland Chasm, although I'd definitely run all three if there's room. Culling Ritual would be an amazing ramp/wipe card you can use to nuke all tokens and then cast stickfingers. Sakura-Tribe Elder is just rampant growth that works as a blocker for one turn, and it is another creature in your graveyard. Lotus Cobra ramps too, particularly with your other ramp options.

And you'll likey have enough mana to use Decree of Pain, if not, other wipe options are Damnation,Pernicious Deed,Death Cloud,Deathbringer Regent,In Garruk's Wake,Killing Wave,Necromantic Selection,Plague Wind,Reiver Demon,Toxic Deluge. Torment of Hailfire works as a finisher too Endurance is basically the only way you can protect your graveyard that I can think of. I'd probably run Veil of Summer too.

Moodmark Painter gives the +x/+x buff and is on a body Garruk Relentless  Flip flips into Garruk, the Veil-Cursed, but its tricky to make this one work

Since you'll have access to really big creatures these can be nice for draw. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Morbid Curiosity, Life's Legacy, Disciple of Bolas, Doom Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

Mesmeric Orb,Stitcher's Supplier would be an amazing graveyard filler.

Zombie Infestation and Wild Mongrel is usefull for dumping creatures out of your hand

I think every single black deck should run Dauthi Voidwalker, and the more grave hate you have the more you could take advantage of Living End/Living Death if you use these as mass reanimates. they are the cheapest.

Life from the Loam and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip would be good helps for mana and options.

As long as you run Filth run Crop Rotation and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth too since it will make every creature you have unblockable.

Deathrite Shaman would benefit from more fetch lands Marsh Flats,Verdant Catacombs,Misty Rainforest would help mana fix as well as throw more lands into your graveyard.

You have a fairly high number of tutors, and a ton of ramp, so i'd consider Panglacial Wurm. It's a card you dont need to waste a draw to get and can be cast instant speed. And its fun to surprise people with it at least once.

legendofa on How is Camaraderie a Bend?

Skagra42 Which part of Shamanic Revelation do you think is the bend?

As I see it, Collective Unconscious and Regal Force show that can draw cards based on number of creatures, although it's more typically based on power, like Greater Good or Momentous Fall. Both Unconscious and R.Force might also be bends, but I don't think they are.

Momentous Fall bring us to the life gain side. ability to gain big chunks of life has quite a bit of precedent, with cards like Blossoming Wreath, Nourish, and Wandering Stream. Gaining life based on power has become more prevalent recently, but has been around since at least 2006, with Gristleback, and Feed the Pack was printed just before Shamanic Revelation.

Furthermore, S.Revelation has been reprinted in eight different products, and is virtually a staple for precon Commander decks. I don't think a bend card would receive that much exposure, but that's entirely my speculation.

So my interpretation is that while the individual parts may not come together often, every part of Shamanic Revelation is acceptably , with established and demonstrative precedent. is probably the second or third best color for both drawing and life gain, but it's reasonable for it to do both.

Fateful Showdown is indeed a upgrade and a fresh cards in hand i will definitely look for room in here.

As for Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flipi always play her for her creature side usually for the extra push for mana to keep going.

By the time I play Greater Good i have 1 or the other in my hand or on the field and just looking for my key pieces to the end game.

A bit of an "upgrade" to Gaze of Adamaro: Fateful Showdown. It would be better if it made the opponent also wheel, but you can't have it all.

A couple questions out of sheer curiosity: is Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip in just for the flip side being an amazing tool to dig for what you need?

And how much mileage do you usually get out of Greater Good? I don't see a ton of great target creators for it other than Beastmaster Ascension or Ominous Seas.
