With the sudden departure of my favorite card from the Extended format and the release of M11, I’ve had my eye on the possibilities for Fauna Shaman going forward into the new Extended. This isn’t just a random look forward, but is also a consequence of my wishing for more functional creatures to fuel the deck I’ll be presenting in this week’s In Development (which you can look for this Wednesday evening). Specifically, Fauna Shaman seems like a perfect fit with the elementals from the Lorwyn-Shadowmoor superblock.
Turns out, Terry Soh had an idea very much along those lines, and ran it to tenth place at PT Amsterdam 2010.
