Quote from WizardMN »It seems your 5 drop slot is fairly light. I am not sure what else to put there, but it seems like it could be easy to whiff if you already have those 3 cards. Maybe Indrik Stomphowler to give you some more utility?
What about Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers to get even more value out of Yisan?
I see you have Mirri's Guile but I am not sure why. It is just for card selection? Why not run Sensei's Divining Top instead? Arguably, they both do the same thing assuming you don't ever plan on using the Top more than once in a turn cycle and Guile doesn't cost mana, but I think Top being able to draw a card and its re-usability are better. Not saying Guile is bad or anything, just curious on why to use it over Top.
I was trying to find cards that would let you re-use Yisan's ability to get a specific CMC by removing counters but there are few. Power Conduit is one and Quarry Hauler is another. I am not sure if they are good enough, though the Hauler does let you skip over numbers or get back to a previous number if you need to.
And, lastly, since you already have your curve set up for it, what about Birthing Pod?
Quote from WizardMN »Regarding Pod: I have put it into, and taken it out of, a number of decks in the past as it never did quite as much as I wanted. Granted only one was really built for it but that was one of the bigger issues for me: it required a bit more reworking of the curve to make sure each CMC had a relevant hit and it affected the overall deck.
I just figured a Yisan deck, which is already built with the curve in mind, would be a good place for it. But, as with a lot of things in EDH, personal preference is the driving factor so I can definitely respect the decision to omit it from this build and instead focus more on just using Yisan multiple times.
Quote from Hazzenko »Kraul Harpooner is good enough? I'm not a fan of Sakura-Tribe Scout. And how Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are performing for you?
Elvish Visionary, Wall of Blossoms and Carven Caryatid are good to curve, card advantage, and can be blockers if needed. Destructor Dragon and Whiptongue Hydra for removal. Seeker of Skybreak can generate good value or act as a political tool.
