Shaman of Forgotten Ways Discussion

Profet93 on Xenagos Command

4 days ago

Crucible seems clunky even with the fetchland and scapeshift.

Rishkar's Expertise - Draw

Momentous Fall - Draw in response to removal

Greater Good - Best card in Xenagos aside from Malignus which you need to add

Harmonize - Draw

Lifeblood Hydra - Draw, beater, lifegain

Lifecrafter's Bestiary - Draw

Life's Legacy - Draw

Skullclamp - Draw

Sylvan Library - Draw

Bolt Bend - Counter counterspells, redirect some removal, some card draw, some extra turns, etc.... very powerful and unexpected. Run it (especially given how your achilles heel is spot removal)

Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Ancient Tomb - Ramp

Castle Garenbrig - Ramp

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma - Ramp, trample

Savage Ventmaw - Ramp, infinite with Aggravated Assault should you wish to go that route. Itself is just good for tempo. Always good to cast, attack, get mana, use rishkar's to draw 8 and cast a card. Seems very good

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Super ramp (and draw)

Shaman of Forgotten Ways - Ramp, wincon

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Heroic Intervention - Protection

Tectonic Edge > Field of Ruin

Reliquary Tower - Utility

Hey Exxie97!

Wow I'm excited to be here!! When I found this decklist it was almost like looking at my own deck! For a really long time I went with Thrasios and Sidaar, bringing lots of morph to the table, but since my playgroup had quite high powerlevel I had to shift into a manifest & flicker theme. My deck was built around sneaking in big things with manifest and then flickering them up in an opponents endstep, therefore relying more on etb effects and big permanents like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Sphinx of Uthuun and Soul of the Harvest. By then I felt like I had to switch out the commanders for Roon of the Hidden Realm to make space for Manifest/Lifegain/ETB themes. Although getting the powerlevel up, I feel like I've lost the original idea with the sneaking and making threats.

For me, your decklist gave me inspiration to go in a more hatebear approach in the future, probably cutting a bit part of the ETB theme since it will be a bit of a "nonbo" anyway. I espescially like your include of Pygmy Hippo!

What I would recommend you is to include stuff like Seedborn Muse, Wilderness Reclamation and Vivien, Champion of the Wilds to be able to respond more efficiently and be able to flash in Felidar Sovereign or use Mastery of the Unseen in every other players turn. One last tip is an underrated wincon that nobody expects if you succeed in manifesting it, and that is Shaman of Forgotten Ways. The faces of control players when they suddenly drop to 0 life because of them having 0 creatures on board is hilarious.

It's nice to see how great minds think alike, keep beeing awesome!

There are a few I don't dig in this style of deck but your environment would be different from mine.

I haven't played or interacted with Anax, Hardened in the Forge yet but he seems underwhelming. 3 toughness with no evasion or combat tricks makes it seem like he hits a chump blocker for a lot and then dies. While there is a decent smattering of 4 power creatures, the satyrs don't seem worth it.

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded might be in for the haste but his activated ability only hits 33% of your creatures, not counting the artifacts. Out of the artifacts, you might want the majority around (i.e. Nullstone Gargoyle)

Radha, Heir to Keld and Grand Warlord Radha seem better suited for an aggro deck and not a stompy one.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is cute but better suited for a fast deck.

If you want mana dorks in the deck you can't go wrong with Shaman of Forgotten Ways or Somberwald Sage. Cards that thin the deck like Sakura-Tribe Elder or Ranging Raptors are choice, too.

My spoilers in the comment above arnt working for me so im trying something different. "If you want to sift through some cards you can look at each section, but I would recommend just looking at the first grouping to start with, as I went a bit too far with the other lists. Those lists are fine to just look at ideas or "good cards" but there are far too many to call them suggestions.

I don't think there is enough Satyrs to go full tribal quite yet. Perhaps you should go gruul tokens? Anyways here are a few things that seem decent.

Eternal Witness- always a great card, imo.

Bedlam- you are not blocking, why should anyone else? GRUUL!

Birthing Boughs- satyr tokens? I dunno if this is actually any good.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh- double whammy

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser- surprisingly solid way of playing defensively in an offensive deck.

Shaman of Forgotten Ways- an alternate win con and good mana production.

Champion of Lambholt- Protects your itty bitties from combat.

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider- very aggressive card.

Anger- goes nicely with the discard your commander allows you to do.

Ste3u on Yeva

Hi, I often thought of building a deck with Yeva, Nature's Herald (I love her art). In my opinion you should add something to protect your creatures like for example Asceticism (when I play deck with many creatures I live with the anxiety that they get destroyed, so maybe I'm a little bias). You could also add a win-con like Shaman of Forgotten Ways. I hope to have been helpful, if you like you could give me a hand with my deck: Queen Marchesa: better not to attack her.

Alright, I have several suggestions for you and I don't want to appear overly critical. The main thing I'm noticing that needs work is your choice of non-creature spells... most of those effects you want on a body in Animar (i.e. ramp, removal, etc.)

Also worth asking... are you avoiding infinite combos on purpose? Want to ask before I suggest any.

Ramp: Wood Elves , Beastcaller Savant , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Somberwald Sage , etc. (You've got options.)

Land Untap/Alternative Ramp: Cloud of Faeries and Stadium Vendors won't go infinite in your current build. Peregrine Drake will with Temur Sabertooth. On that note, consider Equilibrium as another bounce option.

Draw: Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest are your best repeatable draw (that you don't already run.). Tishana, Voice of Thunder is worth including also and Vizier of the Menagerie is amazing here as well.

Tutor: Fierce Empath

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down... I can help suggest cuts (mainly from your high cmc non-creatures like Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Zendikar Resurgent and your current non-creature ramp). In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for ideas... it's not budget friendly as a whole but still got plenty of options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid
