This week’s In Development – X, Y, Z, Profit!

I have to admit that “X, Y…Profit!” is my favorite linguistic construct to describe a plan where the connection between the initial setup and the desired result is unclear. Of course, I’m throwing that all askew in this week’s In Development as I discuss Fauna Shaman decks, where the plan – Shaman, Vengevine, Bloodbraid, Profit! – really does work.
This week’s article describes, essentially, the process by which I arrived at my current Fauna Shaman deck. In getting there, we take a look at what other people are doing with Fauna Shaman, what the current Standard environment looks like, and how we might want to readdress our deck’s mana base and curve.
