It seems like you have a lot of just goodstuff.cards and beats.cards, animar shines when you turn it into more of a storm deck. Consider Beast Whisperer , Phyrexian Metamorph , Kiri-Onna , Imperial Recruiter , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Coiling Oracle , maybe Prowling Serpopard and Siren Stormtamer for protection.

Hey, sometimes it's not good to have so many ideas because then you feel you have to put them all into one deck, which is not necessary :)

Budget cards ($1 or less each) to consider adding:

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider:

Opponent mill is not worth it in multiplayer Commander; it's too slow, not reliable enough unless infinite combo with Altar of the Brood or Altar of Dementia . Self-mill however is good especially with dredge. Consider Grave-Troll and Thug? These along with Stinkweed who you're already playing give a lot of budget repeatable self-mill. Buried is a powerful budget spell especially with these dredge creatures since you can tutor for and put all three into your graveyard with one card.

If you're willing to add a few other cards that are over $1 then consider adding Eternal Witness , Fauna Shaman and Protean Hulk ? These three are powerful and do different effects that are good with Muldrotha. Witness can recur any card from your graveyard. Fauna is a repeatable creature tutor while also an enabler to get creatures such as dredge creatures into your graveyard. Hulk has budget combo potential.

Consider Flash + Protean Hulk + Phyrexian Delver + Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer + Body Double ? It's a budget combo to tutor for creatures by sacing Hulk and repeatable with Muldrotha.

Arcaneful on Which Simic Commander for a ...

2 weeks ago

Hey all.

Momir Vig: The OG Primespeaker

This is the deck I've been working on for awhile now. I've been playing it to great success and love the theme of having the top deck matters in simic. Cards like Coiling Oracle and Future Sight are some of my favorite in magic, so I figured building a deck around them was what I was going for here.

Anyways, I do love the deck and it performs great at my LGS, but I mostly play at my house with my brothers. I feel like Momir Vig, Simic Visionary might be a bit too cutthroat. I want to make a strong deck, but Momir might be a bit too consistent for the times I play more casually.

ENTER Rashmi, Eternities Crafter .

Now she seems to be very similar in playing with the top of the deck, and seems less consistent in the sense that she does allow me to see lots of the deck, but she doesn't tutor me up an immediate answer in response. She also just gives a lot of value.

The problem is, I don't know how strong she is. Is she more competitive than Momir in some cases? Looking at the commander tier list here on tapped out it seems she's the same tier, but being more casual the cEDH I don't know if she's as strong in my more casual/75% meta.

TLDR: I'm trying to decide if the consistency of Momir Vig is too harsh for my more casual brothers, and if Rashmi is too casual for my 75% friends. Any ideas?

Hey, this is a good start, but I think you're including too much fat and not enough sustenance. There's several really good cards here: Thrasios, Safekeeper, Azusa, Cobra, Baloths, Excavator, Muse, etc. Command Tower is however missing :) All my cards suggestions are budget ($6 or less).

Cards to cut to make 100 cards:

  • Baloth Woodcrasher: this is a worse Rampaging Baloths.
  • Arcanis the Omnipotent: too expensive card draw which you don't need because of Tatyova.
  • Archetype of Endurance: not worth eight mana.
  • Polyraptor: not worth eight mana.
  • Patron of the Moon: not enough Moonfolk.
  • Fleet Swallower
  • Desolation Twin
  • Tromokratis

Consider reducing what creatures/cards you want as your win conditions because you don't need as many win condition creatures as you have here. All the cards I suggest to cut to make 100 are high mana cost creatures to help to reduce the high avg. CMC here which is 4.2. Choose a few win condition creatures who can benefit from the strategy of playing a lot of lands before and after the creature is on the battlefield.

I see Thrasios, Triton Hero and overall it's the most powerful card in the entire deck. Adapting the land strategy to also support him is a good plan to consider. Thrasios wants a combo that makes infinite colorless/colored mana because this lets you draw your deck and put all your lands onto the battlefield. Most infinite colorless mana combos consist of expensive price cards such as Rings of Brighthearth or Power Artifact with Basalt Monolith . There are however some budget two cards + Thrasios combos to consider:

  1. Krosan Restorer with threshold + enchanted with Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real : equals unlimited mana from tapping and untapping three lands. These auras let you untap Restorer which then lets you untap three lands gaining you two mana each time Restorer is untapped. Threshold is not difficult to enable (getting seven cards in your graveyard) with all the land ramp spells as well as Wilds, Expanse, Blighted, Bant Panorama, Ghost Quarter, etc.

  2. Viridian Joiner + Umbral Mantle + two mana: equals infinite green mana. Tap Joiner to make one green mana use it and two additional mana to then untap Joiner giving it 3 power. Tap Joiner to make three mana then use that three mana to untap Joiner giving it 5 power. You can now tap and untap Joiner unlimited amount of times.

  3. Umbral Mantle + Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix who's able to make four mana. If you have Kydele in play and draw four or more cards for the turn then you can tap and untap Kydele unlimited times with Mantle.

There are other budget infinite mana combos, but these are using cards that are fine for ramp without the combo therefore they can be used in other ways here with the land strategy.


There's a few cards to consider that can give you an advantage due to all the lands you're playing and putting onto the battlefield. These cards effect all players, but you can benefit much more from them because of the land strategy.

Overburden and Breach bounce lands that are in play back into their controllers hands this is very helpful because of landfall and you want a lot of lands in your hand to play each turn. These cards alone can really disrupt your opponents which is good for you.

Consider more lands? I suggest 42 lands. 36 lands is low for a land strategy especially when you want to be able to support landfall and play multiple lands per turn as well as use cards abilities to put lands from hand onto the battlefield. You need a lot of lands to be able to do all this each turn.

Hey, you're missing Command Tower :) There's a few creatures who when they ETB can untap a creature this is very good with Vannifar to chain activations a turn.

Consider adding:

Quirion -> Scryb -> Bounding -> Hippocamp -> five drop (Acidic, Mulldrifter , Peregrine, etc.). Quirion and Scryb can be repeatable untap of Vannifar each turn by bouncing a Forest. Wirewood Lodge and Minamo, School at Water's Edge are lands that can untap Vannifar. Thousand-Year Elixir can give Vannifar haste as well as untap her. Fatestitcher is a good four drop here since he can be repeatable untap or be untap when unearthed.

Mana dorks are good with Vannifar. Playing her possibly turn three and then they can be used as fodder to get two/three drops.

Consider adding:

With these Elves Wirewood Symbiote can be another repeatable per turn untap of Vannifar that's also good with Sage, Visionary, Farhaven Elf , Coiling Oracle , etc. Woodland Bellower is great to tutor for Witness to then also recur a creature you saced or any other card in your graveyard. Bellower is a good six drop to Vannifar into Hulk.

Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic are counterspells you can possibly tutor for with Vannifar. This interaction is pretty powerful.

Good luck with your deck.

dragonforce60 thank you for taking time to give some suggestions. I'll start by saying that while I am looking to make the deck modern legal, I'm not worried about making it competitive.

As a player, i generally avoid counterspells. Useful as they may be, I find them annoying. That being said, I can't overlook the possibility. I like Mana Leak as a potential include, maybe even x3 Voidslime , though most likely sideboard rather then main. I'm not looking to splash any other colors, as that would disrupt the mana base and consistency.

However! I do really like the idea of including the mana dorks. I'm not going to pull the Rampant Growth , but I will play around with swapping Sakura-Tribe Elder and Coiling Oracle with a few dorks, see how that plays out.

I'm glad that you like the combo, and I'll say this: Thing in the Ice  Flip is a great replacement. I did some test runs with them proxied in and while it takes little more effort, being that even with copies in play with no counters, I still have to play a spell to trigger the transformation, the payoff is a lot better.

No worries on the expensive suggestions, anything sub $10 is something I consider feasible of it will have a big enough impact. I think the birds are worth the investment. I'm still trying to get my hands on x3 thing in the ice. I've got a Mana Drain that I'm trying to trade straight across, but no takers yet.
