Try Pelt Collector or Experiment One over Warden of the First Tree.
Also I'd +2 Blooming Marsh -2 Woodland Cemetery since your T1 play is either or .

BRG24 Thanks for the reply! I really like Experiment One and Pelt Collector as they will get bigger as the game goes on, but there are a few reasons why I think Servant of the Scale is better in this list. First, when it dies and gives its counters to another creature, I can actually get free counters if I have a Conclave Mentor or a Hardened Scales out which in a way adds a type of protection to the servant which has worked out quite well in the past. Then, the more potent synergy is allowing for a turn 2 4/3 Avatar of the Resolute, something that neither of those 1 drops allow for. Wildborn Preserver is actually quite a unique recommendation and I haven't considered it before. I added the Garruk's Uprising as a replacement for Abzan Falconer for some closing power, but if I find the deck needs more reach, I think I'll experiment with the preserver. I do definitely like playing at instant speed, so I think I may give this creature a go. As for Heroic Intervention, while it is an amazing card, I feel like Unbreakable Formation does fulfill that role of protection while also doubling as a finisher card which helps to save space in this very tight list.

Nice deck. Maybe consider Experiment One or Pelt Collector as alternatives to Servant of the Scale. Personally I prefer the cards since they can grow on their own, and experiment having built in protection is also nice. Another nice card might be Wildborn Preserver. Having flash makes it flexible, letting you hold up your command or formation, or even possibly Heroic Intervention if you want to include it, and still having a play if you don’t need them. But the big thing is that it is a potentially great late game mana sink that might allow you to do a little better into longer games. Hope this is helpful.

Nice start but I think you could power this up quite a bit with some swaps. See my version of Modern Evolve SIMIC 101: Fun With Math. Most important to add are:

I also like the combo of including undying creatures Strangleroot Geist and Young Wolf with 4x Pongify and Rapid Hybridization. With the right timing you can get a double evolve trigger by targeting your own undying creature.

Experiment One is definitely the better card destroyer396 - I was just trying to stick to a firm budget.

Really nice deck. Maybe Pelt Collector or Experiment One might be worth considering, in particular over Servant of the Scale? The fact that they can grow as the game progresses makes them feel like they’d be more relevant, especially in this deck. Wildborn Preserver might also be fun, especially with a potentially huge Gyre Sage providing huge amounts of mana. Adding these would make the deck more aggressive though, and I’m not sure if that’s where you want to take the deck. Looks really fun to play and I wish you luck with it in the future.

looks like a great deck, but I feel like it's a bit unnecessary to throw in 2 Plains in the hopes that you'll also get you're Wild Nacatl. I feel like it would be better to throw in 2x Experiment One and 2x Kessig Prowler  Flip. This would still keep you in your $5 range, and after one or two turns the [expirement one] would be just as good, if not better, than the Wild Nacatl with both plains and mountains. Otherwise, this is definitely a thumbs up.

Pelt Collector Could be a good Replacement for Experiment One, the only downside is no regeneration!
