Confused as to why everyone says this cards cost is to high, you look at the top 5 cards and put a creature directly into play, sounds pretty simple. Then again.. its an ability, meaning if you don't use it during your turn, you can use it when your under attack to slap something right on the field to block for you.. say a meglonoth? Your really paying mana for the tutor, and the tutor isn't super expensive if you think about it, as said knotvine mystic helps, most naya decks also have druids of the anima. So, all together, you pay 6 mana for a top of the library tutor that in a naya deck will most likely find something, that can put that creature immediately into play. Thats pretty cost efficient compared to the other cards that do similiar affects or just tutor something into your hand, and some cards cost more than 6 to play. It also has a theme with gift of the gargantuan, and commune with nature, for creature cycling. As for creature removal.. well.. name one creature that c... (see all)

I run this in my Three -color Power of five deck and, if I get it later in the game, i can summon some pretty resounding creatures.

Pulled this in the same pack as Godsire.

Good to use with Mighty Emergence

8/10, good for later game use.

I run this in my 5 color agro deck
Managed to grab a Darksteel colossus with Maelstorm nexus out, cascading into Maelstorm Archangel.
Had my Knight of New Alara out...
It was nice ;)

Trash Mythic.

6 mana is way, way, way too much for her ability, and with 3 toughness and no shroud she'll rarely get the chance to use it anyway. Chance of success with her is extremely low. Much too low for serious competition.

Bringer of the Black Dawn?

Otherwise it is an annoying card. To get the expectancy of hitting to 1 in a 60 card deck, she is asking for 12 creatures with a power of 5+, and that is a lot of expensive creatures for a deck. Sure you can run playsets of Woolly Thoctar, Cliffrunner Behemoth and Rumbling Slum type cards, but those are not very interesting to get with a 9 mana investment.

she is decent but is very vulnerable, only 3 toughness makes her easier to kill then most in a naya deck

plus you are paying 6 mana for a creature that probally cost about the same anyway, a couple exceptions would be godsire, hellkite overlord, empyrical archangel and progneitus, but it is still an expensive ability

this is one naya card I will not be putting in my naya deck, instead I will be going for the wooly throcater

A pretty potent ability, but you're paying a huge amount of mana for the digging. Unless you've got a Godsire waiting for you, it's hard to say whether it'll be worth it. If you're going to play it, I would say that Knotvine Mystic is an absolute necessity - drops the cost of Mayael's ability to four colorless, much more manageable.

With Mayael, I know she is very vulnerable with her cost. Put at least 3 shield of the oversoul auras in the deck. It will strengthen her up to a 4/5 and give her indestructiblity and flying. The added aura will also mesh with the typical naya deck. This is not a horrible card. It just a person have to think when constructing around it.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
