Lead the Stampede Discussion

With the amount of 3-drops, as well as some 4cmc cards, I think 20 lands is a little too low (even with Manaweft Sliver). Personally, I think you should go up to 22 lands, ditching 2 of the Lead the Stampede

Since you have 23/30 creatures at cost = 2, Aether Vial will work very well. Plus I also use Lead the Stampede in my sliver deck for situations when I run out of creatures in my hand (which with vial may happen pretty fast sometimes).
Additionally I find Bonescythe Sliver as one of the best slivers ever.

rb701 yes there are a lot of fun Slivers out there besides the ones on my list, however I'm trying to have the cheapest mana curve possible. Anything higher than 2-3 compromises Return to the Ranks, Collected Company and Aether Vial.
I like Door of Destinies but here I have cheat-into-play mechanics which hinder stacking counters on it. On some matches it might be good but on others Shared Animosity might fare better. Still I'm thinking of getting rid of it anyway to give room to Lead the Stampede for more Sliver spam

Katzmania I feel like Whisperer only fits Mono G. I've tried Elvish Visionary but find myself going back to Dwynen's Elite in that spot. I won't go back to Lead the Stampede main but I've considered adding Winding Way in the side to refill post-wipe. With the increased amount of 3CMC creatures, GB should be at 17 lands minimum but I totally agree it could use Nurturing Peatland. The lands are tuned for Quirion having 12 forests so I'd have to cut some Gilt-Leaf Palace. Thanks!

Keeping up this time!
I actually commend you on Lead the Stampede because I stared at it forever and couldnt find it until I went to the link you sent with the better image. Never thought that I would see a bear turtle but alas there it be. This being said we totally did just get an owl bear. I am actually not convinced with Menagerie Liberator though. I am feeling different vibes from it but totally see what you mean. Maybe I will message the artist or something. I did that for a few cards now to rule them in/out.

Portcullis Vine is ok if your flooding, Saruli Caretaker and Tinder Wall can ramp, Tuktuk Rubblefort gives your walls haste to tap for mana faster, Winding Way and Lead the Stampede are great draw effects in green if your mostly creatures and last but not least Freed from the Real gives you infinite mana if you control a creature that taps for more than 1 blue (Axebane Guardian comes to mind).
I would cut Wall of Tanglecord and some of the burn spells. Walls that just block are really bad vs decks with board clears or non-combat wincons. And more than 1-2 burn spells are unnecessary for your deck to win. If you do add Winding Way or a similar card, consider Valakut Invoker or just big beaters like Boarding Party .
There is a popular pauper deck called "walls combo" that this deck is very similar to. Walls combo can go off turn 3-4 very consistently while also having a lot of defenders. Check it out: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-walls-combo#paper

Slivers aren't something I'm familiar with building. The First Sliver alone is super expensive. I'll try helping where I can though.
First, I don't think you need Renegade Map, Traveler's Amulet, Wanderer's Twig, or Wayfarer's Bauble. The latter of which is needlessly expensive anyway. Rather just use Signets, especially the green ones. Commander's Sphere costs more mana, but is probably worth it here.
Path of Ancestry is a must have. I also recommend the "Thriving" lands, like Thriving Grove . They might even be better than the Vivid lands. Maybe also a few of the snow duals, like Snowfield Sinkhole , because Farseek can find them due to the land subtype.
Camaraderie and Collective Unconscious are a bit over the top. I'm also not a big fan of Shamanic Revelation, but that one costs less than 6 at least. Distant Melody is a good one, but sadly costs a little bit of money. You might even get something worth out of Lead the Stampede , since your deck has over 40 creatures in it. Regular blue cards like Impulse would also help you find what you need. You really don't want to get stuck with those 5+ mana draw spells in your hand, especially early on.

Hi here I am again. Ever since I found this list, the concept has intrigued me quite a bit. It has now become somewhat of a procrastinational habit in my sparetime to search Scryfall for bear related cards. Here are my findings since last time:
• Ruxa, Patient Professor (New possible Commander! However, not better than Ayula in my oppinion)
The obvious ones from the new set. Nice hunch of things to come in the future tho.
Mystery Booster Playtest Cards
Conspiracy: Take the Crown
This one I actually found by accident while looking through my trash commons.
Ikoria: Lair of Behemots
On first glance this one is not really that obvious. But if you look in the upper left corner (easier to see here -> http://www.artofmtg.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Lead-the-Stampede-Ikoria-MtG-Art.jpg) you can see some kind of bear/turtle hybrid in the vein of Exuberant Wolfbear galloping along. Kinda looks similar to the one in Winota, Joiner of Forces .
Thats all I have for this time. Also, honestly, wolves are way to overrepresented in MTG
