World Shaper

Creature — Merfolk Shaman

Whenever this attacks, you may mill three. (Put the top three cards of your library into your graveyard.)

When this dies, put all land cards from your graveyard onto the battlefield tapped. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield.)

Squee_Spirit_Guide, lhetrick13 you could use Pongify or Rapid Hybridization would be able to mainboard in a control heavy variant, where you would be just as likely to blow up something of theirs, and at worst hit World Shaper.

Hey, lhetrick13! The idea of World Shaper dying and triggering a ton of landfall is really appealing! I'm going to drop it in the Maybeboard and test it out. Since I can't reliably kill it myself, I'm thinking its best use would be as sideboard tech against creature-based strategies like you mentioned.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Squee_Spirit_Guide - As much as I hate I (least favorite color to play against) and hate mill decks, I keep looking at this deck as inspiration for a landfall deck as I love how smooth it functions. While doing some research for my deck, I came across World Shaper and thought, "this might be a useful card, especially for a crab mill deck". A bit situational but would almost make it so your opponent could not attack as they would not want to have you block and kill World Shaper as that would trigger the bringing back several lands from your graveyard all at once.

Well, I cut Zuran Orb, World Shaper, Sanguine Bond, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dawn of Hope, and Demon of Loathing, in favor of Plaguecrafter, Body Launderer, Karmic Guide, Viscera Seer, Blood Artist, and another dredge card. Llanowar Mentor is in there as well, but I don't remember what I cut to slot him in. Still not sold on him since he's kind of a dead card if I don't get him early in the game.

I need to get over the "competitive scale". I know my deck works better with these changes, but the competitive scale doesn't quite agree. Oh well haha

Thanks again for all these very thoughtful suggestions. I had to kill some darlings, but so it goes.

Good choice of adding Karmic Guide. Demon of Loathing needs haste meaning Boots. It's drawback which makes it subpar is it has to attack and do combat damage to a player to trigger. It only makes one player sac a creature which is less good in multiplayer Commander for 7 mana.

Plaguecrafter is a better effect in multiplayer Commander for making a player sac a creature because all players have to sac a creature, or if not then a Planeswalker or if not then discard a card.

We understand what Zuran Orb, Ramunap Excavator and World Shaper are for, but the question is do you need them? Out of these three Ramunap Excavator gives the most support. The others are fine cards in another deck, they could be cut for more repeatable self-mill to improve gameplay with Nethroi.

Gidgetimer that is a fair question about Crop Rotation. At this point, it's there more for future upgrades. I was possibly going to pop a Cabal Coffers in the deck, since with Dryad of the Ilysian Grove on the field, every land would be a swamp. Now I would essentially just use it to swap a basic land for a dual or tri-land. Not it's highest function, but not the worst thing.

bushido_man96 I actually find that Ramunap Excavator works really well when I'm Dredging cards into the graveyard and skipping a draw step. Pretty much guarantees I don't miss a land drop, which is pretty critical when I'm trying to cast my commander for 7 (mutating). If Fauna Shaman is in my opening hand, the first card I grab is Golgari Grave-Troll then Ramunap, then Dryad. Ramunap and dryad let me pull 2 cards from the graveyard per turn, and the Grave troll's Dredge ability statistically puts just over 2 land cards in there each turn.

World Shaper is a backup to getting lands back from my graveyard, and he also fills the graveyard by milling three each time he attacks. I don't think that is at cross purposes with my goal. Zuran Orb I can see getting cut if I end up cutting Sanguine Bond. It isn't in my paper deck yet, but I thought Zuran Orb, World Shaper, and Sanguine Bond could make a pretty funny combo.

Why are you running Zuran Orb, Ramunap Excavator, and World Shaper? This is a suite of cards that does nothing for your strategy, either. Three more spots to add suggestions above!

Kind of a jank combo, but Zuran Orb with World Shaper could be fun in this deck. On the end step before your turn, sac all your lands to Zuran's Orb, gaining 2 life and doing 1 damage to your opponents each time, then sac World Shaper to bring them all back to either do it again, or to untap them during your upkeep.
