Bioshift Discussion

Gulrar on Nissa, the Boreal Guard

@Myattemptatlogic i will definitly consider Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and Gyre Sage. Both should fit in my deck idea. Wasteland Viper sounds interesting aswell, and i might put it into sideboard along with Primordial Hydra. When it comes to other cards, Bioshift could work great here but i dont see which card could it replace. Deadly Recluse and Wall of Reverence dont fit to this deck in my opinion.

@yeho2112 Dobious Challenge + Brooding Saurian is an awesome idea! Will have to test it out as soon as i will be able to put my hands on some of those cards

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is great for lifegain, Deadly Recluse for early/flying protection, Wasteland Viper for early defense/Bloodrush ability on big attacking creatures w/trample, Gyre Sage will get enough counters to be useful, especially with a Primordial Hydra/Bioshift combo. Wall of Reverence and Serra Avatar win a lot of games for me if you're at all into lifegain. Naturalize/Erase for removal...not gonna lie I realized this was modern at the last second, sorry if any of those aren't Modern legal lol, my deck SHE WENT TO JARAD might give you some ideas. Solid idea tho, +1

Off the top of my head - big creatures: Primordial Hydra is crazy good, especially if you make him your primary creature. He works crazy well with Fungal Sprouting, Bioshift, Gyre Sage, Solidarity of Heroes. Elvish Piper is great for cheating out big creatures, esp if you can protect it with Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, or Ascetecism. Basilisk Collar is great on any massive creature with trample, as all but one of the damage will go directly to target opponent, and you'll get some lifegain which is never bad. You have no protection from flying at thew moment, I'm a fan of 4xDeadly Recluse in almost every green deck. Wasteland Viper is great as an early defender or for it's bloodrush on a big creature. Deathtouch+trample+powerful creatures win games.

Just to clarify, is this Modern? Also, if you want the focus of your deck to be Chasm Skulker, perhaps you could try a Evolve spin on it with +1/+1 counters with cards like Bioshift, Cloudfin Raptor, etc.

So, I can be a goofy bastard sometimes. I like witty and "random" humor, but sometimes it just gets out of hand...

As proof, here are several parody songs I wrote about The Game of Cardboard Crack. Most of them are old-school hip-hop. Hope that's okay.

  1. "Bolzter-N-The-Hood," by Weezy-G, theme song for Bolster a Corpsejack Menace to Society...

    Drew 7 quick, at about noon
    Gotta play a Corpsejack Menace or two
    Cast Hardened Scales before the play begins
    Then get ready for the bitchin' from my friends
    Simic Initiate, turn two, trigger-time
    Cuz nerds at the path can't Interpret the Signs
    Abzan Falconer, a whole playset
    And some Charms and Battle Priests to fill out the rest
    Bailed out some turns, bolstered my weapon
    Just as I thought target fool kept steppin'
    Jumped on T4, hit the juice on T5
    I got counters front back, and side to side
    Then I played an MP3 (3)
    While buyin' new shit from WotC
    It was Bolster Bolster and the Abzan Menace
    Then I made my own deck and it looks somethin' like this
    Feat of Resistance beats your 6/4
    Mutant's Prey bitches, Burst of Strength hoes
    Mulligan or draw, it's all the same scoop
    Knuckleheads out there cold playin' to first-to-two
    An opponent rolls up, who can it be
    A fresh, bling deck worth a whole pound of weed
    He came to the game table and started to say
    It's all about makin' them R.T.F.C.
    [chorus]Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
    You come talkin' that trash, we'll pull your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life, but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    That's E. is the spot where I cast my stack
    My man E is on that cardboard crack
    My man used to be a friend of mine
    Till I caught him in my 'yard tryina' steal my Hydra
    Cast Treasured Find after I sided it in
    He got 2-for-1ed when he did it again
    Little did he know I got the mana to play
    Planeswalker dead, Top 8, Good Game
    [chorus]Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll mill your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    Bored as hell and I wanna cast spells
    So I went to a spot where other nerds dwell
    The kids out there jockin' Deathmist Raptor
    You're lucky I ain't playsettin' Siege Rhino, ya bastids...
    My life hits 40 and I start thinkin'
    I got 8 8/8s, your battlefield's shrinkin'
    Tap to Outlast, Phalanx Leader gets cast
    Before I pass, Jack Forcefully Adapts
    Ya go into ya bag, and ya get out ya pad
    Thinkin' you would go 2-and-0, and go online and brag
    You write it all down like you can't believe
    You about to R-A-G-E-to-the-Q-U-I-T
    You go, "no attack, pass," wouldn't ya know
    Jack icey like a pimp, attack you bro'
    Got the judge pumped up, like he's booin' for you
    Bioshift Scute Mob, give him a +1 counter, too[chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    You come talkin' that trash, we'll discard your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    I'm castin' hard like I'm playin' control
    Strive for Solidarity of Heroes
    I looked at my opponent and he said, "Oh, brother"
    He countered my hydra, but I cast another
    Flyin' in ya' face, I spin-down ya' die
    Green, black, white, Temples of Scry
    Did I forget to mention Primordial Hydra?
    Gotta mention all my cards before I finish my rhyme
    Faces get beat for resistin' my deck
    Dromoka's Command sac's your enchantment
    My deck is broken, attackin' me is a crime
    Sure, 3-out-of-5, if you got the time
    [chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll play your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    My opponents go to block, but they got no 'field
    Plus I got protection from your Repeal
    Two corpsejacks, and your response?
    Mill my deck? I'll 'board in Varolz
    Be a good sport, said the judge
    Don't mainboard Abzan Advantage
    Use a calculator to confirm the damage
    And a 100/100 is more than most can manage
    I don't use fetches, I do it wit' painlands
    I could do wit' basic Forests, Swamps and Plains, man
    No Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit yet
    But get ready to mainboard that Murder
    [chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll counter your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't play Legacy, it's competitive as shit[/chorus]
  2. "Pump Around," by Evercast, theme song of eyes2sky's Pimpin' Up Wall of Zombie limbs!!!

    Life is up, counter in
    Let me begin
    I came to win
    Attack me, that's a sin
    Drown in dice when I sack up
    Spike, ya better back up
    Try to play the role and Suture Priest will act up
    Life up, Wall up
    Touch of Moonglove up
    If you got removal then, punk you better use it
    Wall of Limbs, Nyx-Fleece Ram
    My Dying Wish
    Is Murder Investigations
    Block it, pump it
    Sac it anyway
    And I deal more damage than nerds at ya Local Gaming Shop
    Sho nuff, I got lots of Exquisite Bonds
    Plus Vampire Nighthawks
    [chorus] I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
    Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
    I'll cut your deck like Mike Holmes' show
    If Jimmy steps up, infinite combo
    Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond
    And I got more triggers than North Korea got bombs
    Just like Prodigal Sorcerer I've returned
    Got no blue or red spells, still you'll get burned
    'Cause I got life and you ain't got none
    If you come to battle bring Protection
    But if you do you're a fool, 'cause I deal to the face
    Try to go 50 with me, you come in last place
    I got the Wall, come get your Limbs
    'Cause when I play Magic, I play like Tims
    [chorus] I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
    Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
    I Consume Spirits, and Doom Blade a lot
    I never Diabolic Tutor 'cause I get what I want
    Ya better get a Tournament player
    Like Andrew Cuneo
    To try and play me out like as if my name were Yu-Gi-Oh
    But I ain't goin' out like no kid-game
    Get used to one style and I might have to make
    The change up up and around, new strategies now
    Take all your life and ya' wake up in your own graveyard
    Lingering Souls, Lingering Souls
    I'm spittin' out 1/1 Spirits and 1/1 Soldiers too bro
    [chorus] But I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Help me count, help me count, help me count
    Help me count my counters up now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]

Simple and badass, just how i like green. Big +1 from me. Solidarity of Heroes and Bioshiftcould be good cards in the right deck. Given that you like green and you are good at it do you have any suggestion about my green Hydra deck? Hydra's Menace (counters)

ChrisPBakon on Counters on ALL the Things! (~$35)

No problem, I've done the same thing. :)

I should note that I have a BG version of this deck that I find to be more effective/enjoyable, so I haven't worked on this one in a couple months. That said, reading your suggestions I had some thoughts to myself like, "What? Why do I have 4 Strangleroot Geists?" and "Why is Bioshift in my sideboard?" I did consider Ring of Kalonia, and both the rings are probably worth testing. I'm not sure how I missed Simic Guildmage, as that would be pretty effective in my BG deck (which contains the similar Cytoplast Root-Kin, pairing beautifully with Protean Hydra).

I play pretty casually, so I'm not super concerned about removal, but I agree that I do need some sort of answer to it.

Thanks!

Lasty, if you prefer to keep the Geists (as they're good) it's possible that you have more to gain by having them keep their "undying"; if that is the case you might want to consider having easy access to something that renews their undying quickly and consistently by removing a +1/+1 counter from them. In addition to the instants you have (Bioshift, Fate Transfer) there's the possibility of using Scarscale Ritual but I'd suggest something that's reusable to remove those unwanted +1/+1 counters: what comes to mind is Simic Guildmage, Zameck Guildmage, Sage of Fables, Ooze Flux.
