Fauna Shaman to search up Biovisionary or your transmute creatures to search for Gift of Immortality or Arcane Adaptation and to fill up the yard for Mortal Combat .

You have a pretty low CMC curve so you can probably cut back to 38 lands without trouble though I don't really see any ramp...

If you have Dark Depths you should probably run Thespian's Stage as well.

Not a lot of removal in the deck so you're relying on combo-ing out pretty quickly I would think. I see a bit of infect strategy in there as well. Has that come up all that often?

I'm seeing only 99 cards total, is that an open flex slot?

So I know it's a one shot, but why not use Vampire Hexmage for the removal of counters on Dark Depths ? Even AEther Snap is a nice addition. Helps get rid of tokens as well. I always feel like Dark Depths is a wasted land slot unless you have easy ways to remove counters. In all fairness at that point a swamp is more helpful. Still though, the deck seems to be an annoyance. Any reason you aren't running Phyresis ? Would help with your non-infectious dudes.

I love Mirage Mirror. Such and underrated card. I had noted that interaction Enral, but thanks for making it clear to anyone else following. Similar to the other weirdness with things that collect or use counters, like Dark Depths. Amazing card without these interactions, but using it with this counter interaction is just icing on the cake.

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

Thank you for your feedback!

In my testing I've actually found the opposite to be true. Glacial Chasm protects me while I get things going, fetches can thin my deck and help my hit my lands on curve, and Dark Depths / Strip Mine have been my most reliable wincons. I search for the depths combo and mine or loam with intuition most often.

The mana also allows me to more reliably cast each permanent type per turn.

What's more, Constant Mists can't be played from the graveyard, so if I mill it to Life from the Loam (another great tutor target) it does nothing.

Hmm. Maybe Emeria, The Sky Ruin, or Gavony Township. Field of Ruin looks fun in my opinion, if you don't mind other people ramping. Maze of Ith is always solid, and Rogue's Passage can be mean. If you're looking for something spicy, think about the Thespian's Stage and Dark Depths combo. Just to name a few.

Yeah, I haven't changed the description in a while. There used to be a lock with Seedborn Muse, Spirit of the Labyrinth, and Geier Reach Sanitarium. The lock ended up being too slow, though. Seedborn only really works with Hokori, Winter Orb, and Yisan. It was much better to add Dark Depths combo and better mana dorks.
