I'm posting this up for a couple reasons. 1) In the spirit of me joining the CPA, I'm going to build a new deck, which will also serve to learn about green(I've never played green before, or even looked hard at the cards). 2) Turgy sent me a pro explanation of how to link to Gatherer card descriptions, so I'd like to test that out, to see if I'm capable of understanding such things(here's hoping, right?). 3) He's just so friggin' cool. Deathrite Shaman This seems like a solid buy for one split mana. Being a 1/2 one-drop, you can hit with it right out of the gate against most creature decks, and can withstand blocking by a 1/1. But the real gems are the abilities. In addition to the life-gain, and the straight non-combat damage to opponents, the abilities look like they'd have solid applications in mill decks, for that stuff that you really want all-the-way gone. For my money, I'll throw him in with Liliana of the Veil, because her ultimate just seems like a natural progression. Not sure what green offers for mill-deck opportunities yet(as this will be an undertaking of mine in the near future), but if you're going up against someone who likes resurrection spells, it's got some solid uses, and I could see this fitting in quite nicely with a red-green aggro deck that makes use of land destruction spells.
