Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost X or less and put it into play. Then shuffle your library.

Thanks so much for the detailed explanation!

All of them make a lot of sense when reading your thoughts on it. I think I am a bit biased since last week I played against a friend who managed to Reanimate a turn 2 Sheoldred, Whispering One and it definitely felt like a losing battle most of the game until I top decked the Swords to Plowshares but that was just lucky on my part and not something I can rely on since I don't even have any method of tutoring it. And, as you said, you win some, you lose some.

That also showed me how important Containment Priest is and added it to my list, I wasn't previously running it because of Birthing Pod , Chord of Calling , etc., but now I think it is really worth its slot.

Thanks again!

For every bant deck I see, they should most of the time include Wargate , MVP card that scales with the game. Chord of Calling can also lead you to Brago when you have enough creatures and mana on the field.

Hope that helps!

+1 Refreshing take and new fun synergies you've listed.

Some recommendations:

Throwing in more tutors to ensure greater consistency in assembling your combos, the likes of:

Creature tutors - Worldly Tutor , Green Sun's Zenith or even Chord of Calling

Other tutors:

Muddle the Mixture - Counterspell that doubles up as a tutor to fetch your key 2 CMC pieces (e.g. Llanowar Scout , Walking Atlas , etc).

Long-Term Plans - One of the rare blue cards that searches for ANY card in the library. Putting the tutored card third from the top of the library ain't too big an issue with Tatyova's drawing power.

Crop Rotation - Fetches you an important land and draws you a card (if Tatyova is in play).

Also, I noticed quite a few key Simic lands are missing from your list. Is that due to budgetary constraints?

Breeding Pool , Misty Rainforest , Flooded Grove , Hinterland Harbor , even Bant Panorama , etc. If your budget allows, I'd recommend playing all the Fetchlands that fetches for either Island or Forest too.

I've a Tatyova deck too but I've taken it in a different direction. Linking it here nonetheless, feel free to give your comments and upvote too!

Lehthanor on Naya 2.0

This is honestly a really fun deck! I quite like your inclusions that offer a range of different answers against opposing strategies, such as Knight of Autumn and Thrashing Brontodon . Perhaps, though, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is not a proper fit for the deck, as it contains 25 non-creature spells. A suggestion could be to cut Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice since they are somewhat slow, and add Sylvan Library for card draw and selection, Chord of Calling or Eladamri's Call as additional creature tutors and maybe even Craterhoof Behemoth as a win condition, since the deck already has a few mana dorks that it can take advantage of. After all, a Naya Hoof deck was in the Top 8 of the 2018 Canadian Highlander Championship. Nonetheless, regardless of the way in which you wish to develop your deck, its Naya theme is both interesting and entertaining from a gameplay perspective!

I think U/G would absolutely be more jank but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Think about how bad ass Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is with this many blue creatures. With him out, you essentially turn each petitioner into potential card draw (or another petitioner which, in turn, becomes card draw.) That's janky but hella cool if you ask me. Only problem then is trying to steer away from the combos Momir tends towards. Seedborn, Quest and Murkfiend are all really good thoughts too, and with budget upgrades, thrumming stone and paradox would fit right along side then as well. Just make sure you're running Chord of Calling if you can swing it! I like the change in mindset from azorious to simic, neat thinking.

hkhssweiss, i did a playtest today, deck performed pretty fast for midrange. Didnt draw Hibernation's End even once, however, Lurking Predators proved to be excellent de-flooder, and got to stick around for gamechanging effect. See the Unwritten did not perform according to expectation, graveyarding 6 or 7 cards proved to be too much price to pay. And Frilled Mystic with Mystic Snake hapoened to be dead draws - I ramped up so fast that it was a choice if either playing big creatures or hoping to counter something. Cought up Chord of Calling into El once, but that was it.

Chord of Calling -> Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Turns out I don't have a Chord anymore, but Elspeth is still great in here.
