Deck works like this:

Fauna Shaman is the base of the deck and its package of Acidic Slime, Mold Shamblers, and 2 of the Blue, Black and Green(Frost, Grave and Primeval) Titans. That is my package I have made up. I've learned that a Fauna Shaman package with 7 DIFFERENT targets is pretty bad(at least it has been in my testing). So instead I settled for 2 targets plus the Titans. Mold Shambler is good for picking of PWs and Acidic Slime can pick off random enchantments and manlands.

Frost Titan is not a bad card. Tapping a card when it comes into play can be devastating, especially when the target doesn't untap during the untap step(once). Cute opposing Titan kid.

I chose these colors as they seem to be the ones with the best Titans I can use. The manabase can use some work but it feels pretty stable.

The Shaman targets for discarding are Bloodghast and Vengevine. To replay Vengevine, I play a Bloodghast+dork, dork+dork, dork+shaman, etc.

The removal suite is Maelstrom Pulse and Doom Blade. Maelstrom Pulse is very versatile and Doom Blade can hurt almost everything(almost).

Jace is Jace and Garruk helps ramp or create a beast or is an alternate wincon.

The board needs the most work. Pithing Needle is good against UW. Obstinate Baloth is good against Jund and I kind of want 1 MB but I don't know if that is being greedy or not?

Let me know what everyone thinks.

To me, it seems as if the green Titan is a little useless.
But that might just be me.

Green Titan can be a bit useful, but useless at the same time. I guess if I wanted a 6 power beater with trample I could have played Yavimaya Wurm, jk, lol. I'll probably drop it in favor of some Lotus Cobras as a turn 4 Titan with the 7 fetches I have seems nasty.

Primeval Titan is boss, but in this deck it's just plain greedy.

Singleton Ob. baloth is not greedy. G1 against jund, they blightning, resp you search up baloth. It "dodges" the blightning. It's good response tech.

Acidic slime is.. well.. it's crap. Drop it for the baloth. Ravenous Baloths was badass, and even against decks other than Jund, a 4/4 body with a 4-point life swing is still relevant (See: RDW, Boros [does anyone still play this?], Naya Allies).

Sideboard: Instant speed removal helps the mythic matchup. Kill a dude in response to sovreigns' trigger.

I'm thinking drop primeval titan, and add a single scute mob. He's a cute guy that makes your opp drop some removal.

The other slot could go to another grave titan.





Okay, here's the problem with Fauna Shaman.dec in general:

What's the game plan without her?

The biggest problem is the fact that she's so weak. I hate the "it dies to everything" argument, but a 2-toughness creature can't even survive shock (see: Ember Hauler). So your opp draws terminate, kills her, you untap and do.... what? Play a bird of paradise and chump block until you get her again? Between the titans, the deck does well in topdeck mode, but in the early game..


Mana base looks okay to me, but hell what do I know.
