Deadeye Tracker

Creature — Human Pirate

1B, T: Exile two target cards from an opponent's graveyard. Deadeye Tracker explores. (Reveal the top card of your library. Put that card into your hand if it's a land. Otherwise, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature, then put the card back or put it into your graveyard.)

If Vraska's Contempt is too expensive have you considered Hour of Glory? It's super budget friendly, hits most of what you're looking remove, and sits at the same mana cost as Contempt (but is actually less of a strain on the mana base). It also has the somewhat relevant upside of sniping any additional copies of a Hazoret the Fervent or The Scarab God your opponent may have sitting in hand.

For the creature base, Tomb Robber might be an interesting inclusion since it represents the potential for repeated explore triggers. It can be a bit slow so I wouldn't recommend more than two copies. Perhaps replacing Tishana's Wayfinder?

I'd also recommend a few copies of Deadeye Tracker to your sideboard. It represents some pretty decent graveyard hate while also supporting the Explore theme.

Interesting idea, but I think you can do better than Slippery Scoundrel. Maybe Wanted Scoundrels or dire fleet hoarder or Warkite Marauder or Hostage Taker or Deadeye Brawler or Deadeye Tracker.

Instead of Recover maybe Duress or Walk the Plank or Vanquish the Weak? Recover is really expensive and you need something to slow them down (or speed you up) while you're setting up your pieces. Maybe Sword-Point Diplomacy?

I think I'd go with Hostage Taker and Duress (with Walk the Plank and Vanquish the Weak in the sideboard).

Nice! I also toyed with a G/B version of this deck. How does the Deadeye Tracker play? It's great that he's a mainboard answer to The Scarab God, God-Pharoah's Gift, and Torrential Gearhulk. I ultimately focused my deck heavily on dig cards to assemble the Path of Discovery+Animation Module combo.

I would also consider Kitesail Freebooter, probably as a board card. A coincidental flying body is nice to pump with Path of Discovery and Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Then again, maybe the Duress makes more sense.

Also, since you're so creature heavy, consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary as a 1x.

+1. See my latest Simic version here

-37 lands in a bit short for EDH : advice is 40 to avoid issue plus aprox 10 carads for card advantage. In your setup, i would recommand more creature cards that ramp lands and that you can sac like Yavimaya Elder and Wood ElvesExplore cards migth also be very usefull to pull out more lands from the deck and filling your Graveyard.Deadeye Tracker, Jadelight Ranger, Merfolk Branchwalker, Path of Discovery, Tomb Robber

Cards to cut :Grim Guardian , Heliod's Emissary, Leafcrown Dryad : not impactfull enoughHermit of the Natterknolls  Flip : Not an enchantement, does not do a lot for the deck

Sheoldred, Whispering One & Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger : Those guys are dangerous, Not sure if your deck can manage to show them in play or in the graveyard and survive the focus tou'll get. I personally stoped playing them for this reason.

Bear Umbra, Curse of Bounty -> What do you do with the untaps ???

Exsanguinate, Genesis Wave, Profane Command -> You dont have mana to make those game-ending, would replace with fixed cost spell or creatures

Overwhelming Stampede -> Quite situationnal, Craterhoof will do a better job beeing a creature you can bring back. If you are looking for a lethal finished, Triumph of the Hordes is more effective

Candidate to add :

Aegis of the Gods

Celestial Archon

Doomwake Giant

Skybind -> retrigger ETB

Strength from the Fallen

Celestial Ancient

Helm of the Gods


Rofellos's Gift

Starfield of Nyx

If you really want to be mean, you should put in Crook of Condemnation, Deadeye Tracker, Silent Gravestone, or Watchers of the Dead so you can: play Fall of the Thran, play your land drop, activate any of the above with abilities (or play the gravestone), and then watch your opponent glare angrily at you.

You might also consider maindecking the Heroic Interventions to save your lands if you have the mana up.

Great deck! I'm also a big fan of abzan. Have you considered Abzan Charm. I would also recommend Curse of Predation just for the extra counters when you attack as well as some explore cards such as Deadeye Tracker.Cultivator of Blades is also just a great card in counter decks

Exactly the type of list I'd be planning to make with Mairsil... Mostly here looking for inspiration, and will probably dig into some things from this.

Here's some of my jank for you.- Helldozer because Wizards kind of directly told us they wanted us to play Non-basic land removal with Ixalan.

  • Mirage Mirror because it is always nice to turn into a Mountain when Wrath of God is raging.

  • Deadeye Tracker because Mairsil hates every graveyard that isn't your own. No, wait, even your own. We want things in cages, not in graves.

  • Dark Impostor because getting rid of things is good. Unfortunately it doesn't copy its static ability, which would've been even better.

  • Syndicate Trafficker because, well, you're going to have that artifact in your graveyard in order to exile it with Mairsil anyway. Hey look there's Wrath of God again. Hi, Wrath of God!

  • Captivating Crew because it's always nice to look for some mates.

  • Soul Conduit because we take what we want. Sometimes, what we want is peoples' lives.

  • Grimoire of the Dead because Wizards like to read. Then kill themselves and come back with some friends.

  • Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang because becoming a dragon seems like a thing a wizard would do. Also if you don't want to become a dragon, you can stab people with it.

  • Hisoka, Minamo Sensei because you might as well throw those expensive card into your 'yard before you put them in a cage. And if you get to counter something with it, so much the better.

  • Xathrid Slyblade because we are fine with losing hexproof if we don't have hexproof. Be careful when using it with Swiftfoot Boots though.

  • Honor-Worn Shaku I have not quite found a use for yet. But if you find something which gets a kick out of Mairsil tapping or untapping, this will be your combopiece. Thought I'd throw it in.

You can hopefully tell Mairsil makes me very happy.
