It might be fun to test other ways to cheat big creatures into play, as well, like:

If you tighten up the creature list to be mostly dinos, a Steely Resolve might be cool; if not, maybe Asceticism?

Happy playing!

@ enpc thanks for the comment, truly appreciate the feedback. So far, the only card you mentioned that I have trouble parting with is Archetype of Imagination.

Asceticism has been removed to make space for Pestermite (forgot to add to the list in the beginning.)

So far I've played this in 7 competitive matches and have found Archetype of Imagination to come in clutch many times. Flying Creatures really hurt this deck and have a defensive tactic against them has played out really well along with a very easy way to get by chump blockers.

Diluvian Primordial - Can definitely part ways with this, most likely swap it for Llanowar Elves

Swapping Lotus Cobra for Fyndhorn Elves - Lotus Cobra is too random.

If anyone has any insights on other Win Cons / Combos to include please share them.

Any other mana dorks that should be included?

really like this deck!a dude in my local play group plays a deck pretty similar to this.

Void Attendant turns roon's ability in a repeatable creature removal.

also Gilded Drake can steal your opponents creatures and enables some kind of creature hard lock.

Sylvan Library for better draws and Asceticism to protect your board.

Ghostly Flicker can flicker stuff and acts as alternative combo-wincon with Eternal Witness and Peregrine Drake

Anyway, super sweet deck! easy +1

You have a lot of high end creatures which don't add a huge amount of value. Sure, Ulamog(s) are good, and sure you can cast them potentially for free but if you have an animar with >11 +1/+1 counters on it then finishing the game should be your primary focus. And while they're big beaters, they are not instant win cards. And using them for removal outside of combo is just expensive.

In the ramp department, you're lacking a lot of one and zero drop ramp cards. You want as much chance as possilbe to get Animar down turn 2, so cards like Llanowar Elves and Fyndhorn Elves can help with that. You also need to include more fetches to make Lotus Cobra worthwhile.

Asceticism is the definition of a pubstomp card. It's too slow for the strategy and not worth running. If you want protection cards, just run Glen Elendra Archmage or a counterspell. It's only relevant combo turn and Pact of Negation will do more work.

Archetype of Imagination is win more. Diluvian Primordial is in the same boat. If you're going to run one of those kind of cards, Chancellor of the Spires is the much better choice. While it has a heavier blue cost, it lets you cast the same spell multiple times (like a tutor).

Hi, I am playing a 5C Scion deck and if you want to play 5C. Land and mana base if everything. But when you focus on 3 and splash 2 it helps a lot. Some lands that can be very useful.

Crosis's Catacombs

Darigaaz's Caldera

Dromar's Cavern

Rith's Grove

Treva's Ruins

Cheap to buy, do not come into play tapped and you can tap a land before returning it to your hand. Also, yes pain lands are a good cheap option too.

As for changes to other cards I advice replacing Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius by Balefire Dragon

replace Ojutai, Soul of Winter by Hellkite Tyrant

replace Prismatic Geoscope by Jeweled Amulet

And I might consider replacing either Asceticism or Crucible of Fire by Lurking Predators or Hunting Grounds

Also if you are interested my deck is called who says 5 is too much? seems a little slow but it has proven very consistent in multiplayers and team events. At our communities and among my friends this is my deck they fear most.

hope it helps

LemurLime Thanks for the suggestions!

I am planning on drafting Rivals of Ixalan eventually. Only reason the elders and the rest of the maybeboard are are not in the mainboard or sideboard just yet. Will definitely have to look into Conspiracy and Sol Ring. The ramp I am uncertain about. I have a lot of ramp in there already, especially with the amount of lands in the deck. For the Archetype of Endurance, I do already have Asceticism, which does give me the same thing, but with the added regenerate bonuses for less mana.
