Chasm Skulker

Creature — Squid Horror

Whenever you draw a card, put a +1/+1 counter on Chasm Skulker.

When Chasm Skulker dies, create X 1/1 blue Squid creature tokens with islandwalk, where X is the number of +1/+1 counters on Chasm Skulker. (They can't be blocked as long as defending player controls and Island.)

Hi, looks like a fun deck!

Forced Fruition is a fun card in these types of decks, but is better in mill decks and doesn't really synergize with your self-mill wincon.

Consider Fatespinner as another form of pillow-fort. Maze of Ith is very good against many decks as well.

Leyline of Anticipation is another Vedalken Orrery.

Chasm Skulker is another threat you could run that builds up quickly. Toothy, Imaginary Friend as well, plus it draws you even more when it gets removed.

I don't get Evolving Wilds in mono-colored decks, it's just a tapped basic? Consider Myriad Landscape for ramp instead.

Good luck!

Pretty much every wheel deck needs Notion Thief . From War of the spark you can also consider Narset, Parter of Veils ! I think Alhammarret's Archive and Teferi's Puzzle Box both are pretty nice too, depending on the powerlevel you're going for. Another nice creature is Chasm Skulker , and seeing as you're going to fill your graveyard up pretty fast, maybe consider Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time or Visions of Beyond ? And also Magus of the Wheel is a card similar to Jace's Archivist

Oh, and I almost forgot! Mizzix's Mastery to cast all those nice and juicy instants/sorceries you discarded for free

I accidentally submitted before i said a few more things. If you can get a hold of Sneak Attack that would be perfect.

for WAR, I may even consider using the new Ilharg, Raze boar or any creature that has a dash effect.

so keywords that work well with marchesa are undying, dash, riot and some good mechanics that work are free sac outlets, ETB effects and steal stuff. Also, Bounce effects work well, and even Conjurer's Closet would do well. something else to consider, if you have +1/+1 counters on creatures, do they give you added benefit when they die? Think of Chasm Skulker

Not a bad idea, considering it also combo's with both Whirlpool cards and Chasm Skulker

Inexorable Tide and Chasm Skulker may fit here. Also Mirror Match would be crazy if attacked with a swarm and your commander on the field.

I'm not sure how much the +1/+1 counter theme works with Vorosh. I think the fact that he has to connect to get any means that you're probably better off using a general that has them built in, like Reyhan, Last of the Abzan + one of the simic/dimir partners.

That being said, I think I'd cut Vigor (I think you want counters on evasive creatures, which makes this a bit less impressive, since those probably won't be getting in combat as much), Bred for the Hunt (This is too cute. You're gonna have creatures without counters enough of the time that I think you'd prefer to play Coastal Piracy , which I don't think is particularly good here), Simic Ascendancy (too slow unless you're comboing and it's gonna make you/it a target if you are), Fireshrieker (I've never liked this card, even with big creatures), Solidarity of Heroes (too all in, imo).

I like: Hadana's Climb  Flip, Chasm Skulker , Managorger Hydra , Verdurous Gearhulk , Villainous Wealth (I play this in all my Sultai decks, though that's partially just because I think it's so fun), and Viral Drake
