Shaman of the Great Hunt Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Longest Turns?

2 weeks ago

Longest turn I personally has was about four minutes. Significantly longer with the math if adding colors up correctly.

I have a casual-Modern Superfriends deck in Gruul that runs a playset of Xenagos, the Reveler on top of Shaman of the Great Hunt to draw tons of cards.

I had to be careful to ensure I balanced red and green mana correctly, but I also needed to pay into getting creature tokens appropriately to ensure I get sufficient draw.

I also needed to be cognisant of not decking myself if I activate Shaman too many times.

The Wincon is to ramp excessively hard, create ungodly amounts of tokens which feed into Xenagos. Use the mana to draw and play another Xenagos to use the new one's +1 for more mana to repeat. Then, once you have a boardstate that is buckling the legs of the table, you bring out anything that grants all creatures haste and swing for lethal.

Easily stoppable given the plethora of 1cmc spot removal in Modern, but equally dangerous because I generally run more creatures and ramp than you run removal.

With math, maybe 7 minutes?

Prospekt on Animar, Soul of Elements Hydra Tribal

Thanks for the considerate response. After reading I do think I will take this route and change my Animar deck to hydra tribal while changing Gargos to voltron, though I'll probably put him into new Animar as well. I look forward to building and eventually playtesting this new version that kind of mashes together my two favorite decks. I'm combing through my decks on the site to find some extra includes and a couple cards you might like are Kiora's Follower, Altered Ego, The Great Henge, Shaman of the Great Hunt, and especially Herald of Secret Streams. Anyways thanks again and I might come back in a while if I find more cool stuff you don't have or for gameplay advice once I put this together.

  • Fight to the Death: Horrific tool to use when you play politics

  • Arterial Flow: Trade 1 card for 6 for just ?? Even without a Vampire for the second half, that value is unmistakable.

  • Ravenous Chupacabra and similar spells: Put a body on the field while removing the biggest threat? Yes, every single time.

  • Shaman of the Great Hunt: Seriously. Even if you don't have many big creatures out, he draws off himself and can be activated multiple times over per turn. How is that not seen in literally every deck in his colors?

  • Brutal Hordechief: Same idea. Controlling combat is a very under-tapped method of winning.

  • Harsh Sustenance: Disgustingly brutal card for token decks.

  • Outpost Siege / Furious Rise: Cards = advantage. Let's get some free advantage every single turn.

Shaman of the Great Hunt is a great card. I have temur built in edh but it would be a fun commander

So I've been wondering, is there an EDH variant in which any rare or mythic creature can be your Commander? So for example, if I wanted Brutal Hordechief or Shaman of the Great Hunt?

IrateWarrior on Ghired's Pound Town, Siege Mode Edition [C21 Adds]

Dam have me rethinking a lot now, only reason I have Shaman of the Great Hunt is the counters are nice making ghired bigger but mainly was the draw. Maybe swap him for Garruk's Packleader? To keep the deck with draw power.Thundermaw Hellkite Xenagos, God of Revels could be good

Lanzo493 on Ghired's Pound Town, Siege Mode Edition [C21 Adds]

I would say take out Thundermaw Hellkite since he's not very good, but he is a dragon, too. You know your deck best. If you need more ramp, I'd suggest Traverse the Outlands because you have big creatures. As for haste, since you don't play that many cards every turn, Xenagos, God of Revels will pull a lot of weight in your deck. I would take out Shaman of the Great Hunt since your deck tends to go tall more often than wide, and he can get killed pretty easily. If you want to use him the same turn he comes out, he's a 3 cmc card. The same can be said of Aggravated Assault being an 8 CMC card.
