    I liked the Shaman, was able to just grab a wincon several times, barely needed her to get a combo piece, since mostly there are better lines to assembele the combo. She is golden as an out to grafdigger's cage! @JohnBell we are forced to play like a toolboxy deck sometimes tho!
    Voice also is great for me. Not only does it help the controll match, its super sweet with rallier and i do need the bodys for aggro matchups, since im not running finks.

    @MilkIsMYPotion I think Choke is the better card for that purpose. Thrun is good no doubt, but I feel it is only good vs Uw and UWr control. It doesn't match up well vs BGx or GDS for example, since their creatures grow bigger and leaves Thrun on perpetual chump blocking duties. It is also hard to fit in mana wise, since it requires 18 green sources to cast on turn 4 or 20 green on turn 6 with regen up.

    A better card which suits DnT more is actually Choke. Choke requires fewer green sources (12 green sources on turn 3). Choke is also good vs Uw and UWr, but also excellent vs GDS, merfolk (a premium hate card here) and Storm (fetch version). Plus choke really plays well with the mana denial suite of DnT.


    Generic question: do calculate the land count with chance to hit >90%?

    what do you think about the 62 card maindeck list? the pilot stated that its even better than 60 cards since he got lower odds of drawing into the wrong toolbox creatures. played a few games online, went really well. the sideboard was absured against storm =)

    First of it doesnt really fit the primary objective of the deck - combo fast, only giving you an active druid turn 4.
    Then you rather dont want have multiple (>2), because you will frequently draw cretures you dont want to ditch to his ability (which obviously will happen more often than drawing a second copy), keeping three postboard is not sustainable imo and its a coco brick while going off.

    i cant imagine 3 fauna shamans being anything else but a overkill. 1 feels great for me atm.

    I side out Chords. We dont win by giving them the easiest Negate/Dispel targets and the only really great Chord plays are Selfless Spirit and Scooze in response to a sweeper pr snappi imo, plus keeps the non-creature count low.

    im only playing 3 and lately im also a little unsatisfied with them. sure, they are great in the midgame+ when you can grab your coco or paths back and insane while comboing off, but can easily become rather bad in some matchups. they are mostly too slow for affinity and burn and they can give game deciding game information aginst any type of controlish oriented deck (easy counter/wrath sequencing for your opponent).

    im sure pretty certain that a vat does not belong in the main deck. modern is not the place to spend 3 for nothing to do something the next turn for another 3 perhaps. maybe a spicy side card. why a 2nd censor?
