Quote from Undisputed-Referring to the last list you posted, did he say why he cut fauna shaman?
Quote from monovfoxKibler doesn't like Fauna shaman, he never ran it (it was the addition of another player). Hatebears is kinda split into shaman vs no-shaman schools.
Quote from msten19That would be me. And I talked to Kibler at Toronto about it briefly, he was worried the Shamans were a little slow. Which they are.
As for Electrolyze, it's certainly worth testing dropping the utility lands (Wildwood and Canopy) for more fetchlands, but I'm not entirely sure how bad Electrolyze is for this deck. There is a stark contrast between the low drops (0/1's and 2/2's) and the high drops (3/4's, 4/4's, and 5/5's). URW has to fight this deck on two different axes, which makes their job very difficult.
As for fauna shaman: yes its a bear as it CIP, but if he survives the turn you're bound to win and that's personally a reason to play him. He's my opponents worst fear, as it procedures the right hate for whatever they're holding...
Quote from COUNTERSPELLSSUCK!!but that is just it they usually always let him make it and just save there removal for what you go get with him because they know it is a one of where as not running him you run more copies of your real threat cards ie teeg ,thalia, mindcensor. With the current jalopy of decks that see play now at least in my meta i cant see myself cutting the number of those to any less than three specially with the rise in popularity of scapeshift, and gifts. Not to mention how mindcensor just bends pod over the table and make them cry uncle
Quote from monovfoxI think Fauna Shaman as a 3 of is fine. 4 is a bit excessive, you'd much rather draw ANYTHING else than the 2nd fauna shaman.
Quote from msten19That's the beauty. You can pitch Fauna Shaman to Fauna Shaman.
Quote from Stille_NachtGW aggro (basically hatebears, it runs leonin arbiter and stuff) has been placing pretty well in the in recent ptqs actually
Quote from NiddFratyris
Anyways, my point is that these lists do not belong here.
Quote from JaydeeFor those playing with fauna shaman, what creatures with flash can we tutor up to protect other creatures?
Against spot removal I know there is restoration angel and possibly briarhorn.
Against sweepers I don't know any flash creature which makes everything regenerate or indestructable?
Quote from JaydeeCurrently I'm playing 4 finks maindeck since modo is all about aggro...
That means I've got some sb slots available again!
I'm looking for 3 sb cards to bring in all 3 of them vs zoo and urw and at least 2 if those have to be brought in vs RDw/burn as well! Who suggests what ;-)?
(Dont mention Spellskite, he aint gonna beat the crap out of urw)
