Bounding Krasis Discussion

scotchtapedsleeves on Rashmi, Eternities Crafter (deck help)

2 weeks ago

I also have a budget Rashmi deck, right here, and one of my favourite cards to throw out with it is Stormtide Leviathan, it locks out opponents boards and you get to swing with a huge body!

I like what youre doing with the control, but you could use a lot more counterspells, I like Plasm Capture and Cyclonic Rift. Rift is a staple in Control Commander so Id definitely include it!

Try including more flash creatures like Bounding Krasis which you can cast on your opponents turn for a free card off your library!

If you have the budget for it, Sensei's Divining Top is godly in Rashmi! Another artifact that you should always always use in your commander decks is Sol Ring. That 3 mana turn 2 is amazing!

You might want to check out my other commander decks on my profile for some ideas for new decks and to see what cards to include!

Good start to a deck, I hope to be seeing more of your decks in the future!

masterpeez Bounding Krasis is mostly just a creature that I can play on an opponent's turn for Rashmi, Eternities Crafter to do its thing.

hecklefeckle Delta-117 went with Briarhorn, thanks for your suggestions!

Unless I'm missing some combo, Bounding Krasis doesn't seem like a very good card.

Byuante Thanks for your suggestions!

Show and Tell: I might use this, seems a bit too group huggy and can get out of control if I play it

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary: I'll slot this into the maybeboard for now

Bounding Krasis: More flash? Perfect, maybeboard for now

Kiora, Master of the Depths: I don't have any planeswalkers in this deck... Maybe put this one in over Nissa, Steward of Elements?

Byuante on Free Cards? Sure!

Mandalorian on Riku the Doubler

I don't think you currently have a way to have infinite turns since Part the Waterveil exiles itself on resolution and Walk the Aeons requires sacrificing lands to buy back. Here are some ways to go infinite with Riku

Eternal Witness+Conjurer's Closet+Walk the Aeons

Cast Walk the aeons, end step Conjurers Closet targets Witness, Witness gets back Walk the Aeons, take extra turn, repeat.

Sage of Hours+Sandsteppe Mastodon+Roaring Primadox or Conjurers Closet

Put 5 counters from Mastodon on Sage of Hours, remove counters to take another turn, next turn upkeep return Mastodon and recast, repeat. Or end step Conjurers Closet target Mastodon and bolster Sage of Hours again, repeat.

The oldest infinite turns combo that's ever existed is expesive but efficient if you can afford it. Time Vault+Voltaic Key

Tap Time Vault, take extra turn, untap Time Vault with Key, repeat.

Other infinite combos you can do in Temur colors

Presence of Gond+Intruder Alarm for infinite tokens

Splinter Twin or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Deceiver Exarch or Pestermite or Bounding Krasis or Zealous Conscripts for infinite copies or Combat Celebrant for infinite combats.

Ex. Put Splinter Twin on Pestermite, token copy of Pestermite untaps original Pestermite with Splinter Twin on it, tap again to make another copy, repeat

Squirrel Nest+Earthcraft+Goblin Bombardment for infinite damage

Make a squirrel, tap squirrel to untap land with Nest on it, and then sacrifice tokens for damage

Hive Mind+Summoner's Pact or Pact of Negation or Pact of the Titan

Cast Pact, then each opponent is forced to cast a pact, on upkeep if they are playing the color of the pact and are unable to pay the upkeep cost they die.

Hope this gets the brewing juices flowing!

Will361405 on Can tempo be competitive?

I was wondering if a blue green tempo deck could be a real deck in the format right now. Cards like Vendilion Clique are already great and with other flash cards like Bounding Krasis or Nimble Obstructionist I'm just having trouble finding what goes lower on the curve for the deck. But against decks like deaths shadow I feel it would have a strong match against its delve creatures, and it could easily be a deck I think. What do you guys think?

Xandermarron on Simic Combine - Elvish Biovisionary

5 months ago

Hey there brekker, nice to meet you. First off, love the deck construction man, really nice job, especially with Simic, which also happens to be my favorite. I have tried and brewed probably just as much as you have, and I've made some rather good decks, but the twist that you've put on elves is rather impressive. I love the biovisionary win, I like the elvish go-wide shtick, and I love the mana you are managing to lug around while doing all this. However, I would like to point out a couple of issues that I have with the deck.

1.) Forbidden Orchard All I do when I see this card is immediately think, WHAT THE HELL, WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?! However, after seeing the availability of untapping all of your creature with a single activation of this land is quite neat. However, I really don't think that this is all that necessary. If you plan on using infinite, or just huge amounts, of mana, have something to use it on. I cannot stress how good a well timed and well charged Pull from Tomorrow or Biomass Mutation has been in my own go-wide Simic decks. Seriously though, I've seen people die from their opponent's spirit tokens, just take the one damage outright with City of Brass or Mana Confluence.

2.) Coiling Oracle Good card? Yes. Simic colors? Check. Would I play them? No, not really. The Oracles are good, yes, but in ramp decks, you have this thing called an altered curve. Usually it being something like 1-drop, 3-drop, 5-drop, which is the case in your deck. I would rather have 4 Elvish Archdruid instead. He is good sometimes, but you do not really want inconsistency in a ramp deck. If you were to replace those last two slots, I'd replace them with...

3.) Simic Charm Oh my god. This card has saved my skin numerous times before, and has never stopped. Its a pump spell, a creature bounce spell, or makes all of your creatures hexproof. These effects can all very well save the game in your favor, just because of the level of tempo and fizzling you can do with it.

4.) Bounding Krasis An elf? No, but here's the thing, a 3/3 with flash for three is already an absurd combat trick, but the ability to either deny a blocker, deny an attack, have one of your other guys untap and absolutely swat an opponent's creature is almost invaluable. This is another one of those cards that is just about broken.

5.) Collected Company So as I was reading this, when I realized that there was no collected company, I was... confused, to say the least. This is a deck that can thrive on a "cheater card" like this.

6.) Tishana, Voice of Thunder I noticed that you had an Ixalan card in the sideboard, and then I realized that you didn't have Tishana. This would be the absolute one of the best finishers possible for this deck. Huge creature, lots of card draw... in an elf deck. If that isn't terrifying, I have no idea what is. Lastly, I forget the name, hold on... ok, got it.

7.) Ripjaw Raptor Literally EVERYTHING that Simic wants to do. Damage on a rather large creature, card draw as punishment if the creature is hurt, it's amazing, and I have no idea how many decks I want to put this in yet, but it's a lot.

Keep in mind, you absolutely should not do all of these at once, or even any. But These are some possible alternatives for what you CAN do for this deck.
