Mick-Tis, Urabrask the Hidden would be on theme since it's Legendary. I get that Fervor isn't a Legend, but it's more favorable for being played on curve for aggro vs Urabrask that's at 5 cmc.

Playing more Legendary Lands could be the most mana efficient way to get Shanid to pop off. There are quite a few options, and each one has some additional utility upside:

Some of them are kinda pricey, but even adding 4-5 can give you more flexibility on your other spells.

There are also some other legendary artifacts that are options, like Shadowspear and Eye of Vecna

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep could work here as it synergises well with Queen Marchesa, but I think it can work flavor-wise.

The glow from within looks inviting, but woe awaits whomever finds out who stokes the fire or what simmers in the pot.

GrimVeracity on Neera Wild Mage Copy Deck

lego22499 this seems like a very fun and explosive Combo/Copy deck! I think the key to cracking/breaking Neera, Wild Mage is going to be focusing on lower CMC ramp and interaction without jeopardizing Neera's ability. She can be a tough cookie to crack but one idea that comes to my mind is adding some cheap early game interaction that you aren't necessarily disappointed to hit with the Neera later in the game. Another way to aid in this struggle may be to run a higher than usual land count considering you may not want to be hitting many low CMC ramp/rocks with Neera's abillity and would rather hit the lands to get closer to something BIG hiding in your deck plus it wouldn't hurt to draw some extra lands early... especially Utility lands or lands that have a Cycling ability as this could help with draw if you start to flood out. That's the best I've got for now but I'll give it some more thought as well as feature the deck and maybe you can get some HOT tips from EDH players more familiar brewing around Storm, Combo, Copy, Ect. Anyways cool deck looking forward to seeing how it develops!

Low CMC Interaction

Chaos Warp, Pyroblast, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Swan Song, Peek, Gitaxian Probe, Snap, Prismari Command

Cycling Lands

Remote Isle, Smoldering Crater, Lonely Sandbar, Forgotten Cave, Desert of the Mindful, Desert of the Fervent

Utility Lands

Castle Vantress, Mystic Sanctuary, Wandering Fumarole, Skyline Cascade, Halimar Depths, Soaring Seacliff, Faerie Conclave, Moonring Island, Cephalid Coliseum, Magosi, the Waterveil, Spinerock Knoll, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Ghitu Encampment, Madblind Mountain, Hanweir Battlements  Meld, Kher Keep, Hellion Crucible, Reliquary Tower, Wasteland, Strip Mine

It was probably a set boosterbox, not a draft boosterbox? It would say "set booster" or "draft booster" on the wrapper.

Set boosters were released with Zendikar Rising in september 2020, as an alternative to the boosters that have existed in the 27 years before that. They aren't meant to be drafted, they're designed to be fun to crack open. Chances of more impactful cards, more rares, less fillers, Art cards, and a chance to open a card from the List. I believe that's where your Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep came from.

They're not that commonplace, you were still lucky to find an expensive card like that, but it's not as incredibly unlikely as you believed it to be.

Hope that helps!

I haven't bought mtg cards in ~3 years since I lost like 80% of them in a fire. Today I found a booster box of innistrad crimson vows at a local walmart and decided to jump back into it. Nothing looked odd about any of the packs or the box but when I looked at the cards in the pack a I found 2 or 3 that were not from the set. One of them was a Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep which was going for about $25 to $30 online. I also got a foil Chandra, Dressed to Kill. So, is it normal to find cards from other sets in a pack or did I just have stupid good luck?

What about the Kamigawa Legendary Lands: Eiganjo Castle, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep & Shizo, Death's Storehouse. Rogue's Passage would also work nice I think.

And some other utility lands to consider:

And dual-faced cards that you don't have to count as lands, but can still be a land in a pinch

Where are your Kamigawa Legendary lands; Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep and Eiganjo Castle?
