Kinship At the beginning of your upkeep, you may look at the top card of your library. If it shares a creature type with Wolf-Skull Shaman, you may reveal it. If you do, put a 2/2 green Wolf creature token onto the battlefield.

Wolf-Skull Shaman Discussion

Hey there! I have a few suggestions you might just like!
- Fauna Shaman: It's a shaman, it's a great tutor, and it's cheap in mana. Seems like it would fit in great!
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx: Fits in great with any mono-colored deck!
- Strip Mine: Great in any deck, especially in mono-colored ones where you almost always have the colors you need available anyway
- Ancient Tomb: Could easily be that two mana in your commander's mana cost, and is great EDH staple.
- Lignify, Song of the Dryads, Kenrith's Transformation: A great form of creature hate in mono-green. This can be horrible on someone's commander especially if they have no means of removing it. The same goes for a combo piece or just any great creature.
- Heroic Intervention: A great way of protecting your pieces, since it would seriously suck if all the shamans got wiped out
- Collective Unconscious: Another form of shamanic revelation, both of which are reasons to include Reliquary Tower
- Triumph of the Hordes: Could be an entire other wincon if you have a bunch of shamans out
- Wild Growth/Utopia Sprawl: Great ways to ramp in small amounts before you put your commander out
- Sol Ring: It's not a shaman, but still one of the most powerful cards in edh. Definitely add it.
- Three Visits/Nature's Lore: Just like the previous two, these are great ways to ramp before you put out shamans, speeding up your game by a ton
- Jeweled Lotus: I hate that they made this card, but it could basically let you play your commander turn 1. Definitely add it if you have the budget.
- Extraplanar Lens: Kill a forest, and double THEM ALL. You have a lot of basic forests, and I think this card could work very well for you because of that.
- Nissa, Who Shakes the World: This one is much more debatable, but the regular ability is great for ramping and the final ability is just wonderful for you because of all of the forests you have.
- Helix Pinnacle: You have so much ramp and Nissa as previously mentioned would be insane. This guy could be a great win con and act as something to pool all your mana into.
- Nyxbloom Ancient: All your shamans tap for 6?!?!?! Seems great- especially since you can ramp to put it out and fit with the decks theme.
- Caged Sun: Great in a mono-colored deck, buffs all the shamans, and gives you more mana. Could be a great option if you like these sort of doubling and tripling cards.
- Wolf-Skull Shaman: You run a LOT of shamans, and this guy lets you take that fact and benefit it, giving you a ton of tokens over time.
- Birds of Paradise: A great way of building the ramp base from early on, and works as a great blocker if you need to block something big over time since it has flying.
- Burgeoning/Exploration: If you keep the amount of lands you have at the moment, using these guys could make you go crazy and have a bunch of lands. In a four player game, Burgeoning could give you 5 mana turn 2.
- Arcane Signet: Another great way of supporting the mana base early on
I'm afraid that's all I have, just keep in mind, I recommended a lot of stuff that helps you PRE shaman ramp, and if you include too much of that you start drifting away from the shaman theme- don't do that. However just including a few of the better ones might help a ton. And so, good luck on your deck my friend it seems super cool, consider checking out some of my decks, hope this helps, and have a wonderful day. Happy tapping!

If you really want to do +1 counters you should get at least one Proliferate card. Not only do you get more counters on your creatures but you can put more counters on Orochi Hatchery and Angelheart Vial. Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Karn's Bastion etc.

I know Anowon, the Ruin Sage is good, he just refers to a different tribe and that is a big nope for me, as a vorthos.
Kindred Charge isn't great. It's fine but like 6 mana for how much damage, effectively? Not enough, at a guess.
Sangromancer is good but not super good. It's reliant on your opponents and that's always dangerous.
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed doesn't provide much value. Idk if you're forgetting the "nontoken" clause for Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper , but if you are, that, and if not how many creatures do you think are in your graveyard?
Golgari Findbroker is fine.
Gigantomancer is fine.
With so few expensive plays, Urza's Incubator isn't so necessary?

Deck looks like it could easily ramp into Dragonlord Atarka or Thundermaw Hellkite. Add Dragonmaster Outcast because it shares Shaman with Wolf-Skull Shaman and can be a real nuisance out of early game.

The biggest problem you have is the color set. There are a lot of untap abilities out there, but some are in white and most are in blue. Not so many in Jund colors. Jade Mage is somewhat meh in my opinion, as the cost for a token is just so high. Master of the Wild Hunt is a bit slow, but reliable, more so than Wolf-Skull Shaman. Speed is definately a consideration here. For whatever reason I thought you already had Fresh Meat in here, but that's a definite in my book. If you go heavy on the tokens Parallel Lives could certainly be helpful. Might I suggest Beastmaster Ascension if you go this route, and also potentially Sprout Swarm. Other token Generators that aren't shamans could be Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Mycoloth.

Jagg3r5, thanks for looking it over. A couple of thoughts occur as I read your post. I agree with Hellkite and Dragon's Herald, they are just in there as a fun casual combo, but in playtesting they both can end up being dead draws as you've mentioned. At the moment I am definitely very scattered, from looking over the huge variety of what's out there for this tribe, you can go toolbox with all the activated abilities, token generator with all of the options available, or more all in on the reanimator/sac route. I think the way that I would like to go is mostly toward some combo of the latter 2, focusing on the best token generators while having enough gas to benefit from the sac outlets.
In playtesting this, the Purphoros effects have been devastating. I also like that the tokens can get this running like a Meren reanimator if I get her online too. I am going to try Rage Thrower in here, and am considering putting some or all of the following in: Master of the Wild Hunt, Jade Mage, Earthcraft, crytolith rite, Fresh Meat, Parallel Lives and Wolf-Skull Shaman. I'm curious if anyone has thoughts on if this will be too slow of a strategy or if it is viable. My hesitation is that if I go all in on the token and sac route, I often have things sitting on the board that don't have useful abilities, and it is fun to have options with all of the activated things available in this tribe. I will pull the allies as they are pretty useless unless they have each other, though Agadeem Occultist has some good utility even if I can snag a 1 drop as sac fodder, even better with Thornbite Staff, (just wish there were more things like the staff available as that card is a bomb in this deck). Please keep the feedback coming this deck has been fun to build so far.
Still wondering if the balance of the key parts seems in place: Do I have enough of the following?
Sac outlets, Ramp, Draw, and Win Conditions (I try to stick to the general 8x8 rule for edh)
