Yes, you would pay 11 if X=5.

As ClockworkSwordfish said, you basically have to pay twice as much.

Compare to Astral Cornucopia , which has a casting cost of , and will enter with X charge counters on it. If you want 3 counters on it, you'd have to pay 9 mana (3+3+3).

Sweet deck, love the phyrexians. I will say though, Astral Cornucopia is a pet peev of mine. If you cast it for 3 mana, its a Darksteel Ingot that's not indestructible. If you cast if for 9 mana, its an extremely expensive Gilded Lotus . Neither card is that expensive either. lol if the cost was XX, it'd be perfectly fine, but it just seems like a bad rate as is. Sorry for the rant, love the deck though.

Surge Node and Coretapper are basically mandatory for this archetype, and its worth remembering that WOTC are balancing around Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia pumping out a lot of mana.

If you are seriously looking at making it work in a super budget way, Throne of Geth and Tezzeret's Gambit should be the top end of your deck, while the rest aims to win before vast amounts of mana would have been relevant. This means focussing on one clear strategy- I'd reccomend Shrapnel Blast / Atog / Slag Fiend , but Shriekhorn mill is also an option.

If you are prepared to drop another ten bucks, you can make something fantastic built around Saheeli, Sublime Artificer who releases soon- copying onto Surge Node is strong.

Nimbus Swimmer always feels a little weak to me. I always assess by looking at how a card feels to draw in the first three turns. Drawing a low cost spell later in the game is usually ok, but making sure those first few turns put you in a good spot is essential.

I'm just flicking through the simic stuff since I've tended to only do stuff like Cloudfin Raptor / Experiment One with it. Hydroid Krasis looks promising when the set rotates and it gets cheap, which will let you replace glimmer of genius.

Right now, think what I'd do would be add three Gyre Sage and two thrummingbird, cutting a climb, a hungering, two forests and a swamp. I'd also consider cutting Go for the Throat and running Beast Within instead, since I like the extra versatility with my 2 drop slot already taken/ ramping me to play it.

I'd also look at Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia while upping the proliferate count- Tezzeret's Gambit does a reasonable impression of Glimmer of Genius in most cases, and getting lots of mana to pump into hydras is good feeling.

Thats my thoughts though, and my deckbuilding is far from perfect. Testing is the most important thing. Hit playtest, draw a few hands, change some things then try again. Its how you get a deck that feels good to play.

This is a very cool deck, you've built. I built out a Pir and Toothy deck as a per-cursor deck to my deck, Mad Science. You've got a lot of the same cards and abuses of counter creation built in ( Astral Cornucopia + Power Conduit types of things), and I love it! One thing I actually didn't think to do was put in level up creatures, but that's a nice touch! Out of curiosity, did you ever consider As Foretold ? I'm curious what you think about that card in a deck like yours. I get that you don't have too many huge mana cost spells, but a free one each turn would be nice if you're drawing tons of cards with Toothy.

Another card I really love for your deck is Give / Take , and I don't even hesitate to suggest that one, like I do with As Foretold. If you can cast both halves of it, it gives you the ability to draw cards off of Toothy without his needing to die, and then to power him back up again to a 5/5 (if Pir is also on the board). Alternatively, you can power Toothy up even higher with the 'Give' half, and then remove the counters to draw even more cards. If you can't cast both halves of it, it's still a nice card for early-mid game, and you choose which effect is most useful. It's a fantastic card with those two commanders as it has synergy with either/both of them.

Hey, congratulations for your new deck! EDHRec.com is a great source of upgrades for your deck. Some notable inclusions you might consider: Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia for crazy ramp.

Every part of this works.

You can always choose to pay for , unless the card specifically states otherwise.

There is also no prohibition on putting charge counters on Astral Cornucopia after it enters the battlefield, so you will be able to add them with Coretapper .

Finally, abilities that do not require can be activated even if the permanent is tapped. So, with Coretapper , you can tap it to put a charge counter on Astral Cornucopia , then sacrifice it to add two additional charge counters, so you have a total of three charge counters on the Astral Cornucopia that you paid for.
