Frilled Mystic Discussion

Murphy77 on Simic Climb

I have found the quickest way to get +1/+1 counters on your creatures is to play Biomancer's Familiar with Growth-Chamber Guardian and Incubation Druid . This means almost instant flipping of Hadana's Climb  Flip. Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter and Simic Ascendancy then help to create back-up win conditions, while Nissa, Who Shapes the World gives you all the mana you could want.

I would keep Pelt Collector and Roalesk, Apex Hybrid , but Siren Stormtamer is so much easier to cast and almost as effective as Frilled Mystic and the explore package (12 cards) may actually slow you down.

My recommendations for this deck would be:

-2 Nissa, Who Shakes the World , +2 Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

-4 Frilled Mystic , +3 Siren Stormtamer , +1 Stony Strength

-4 Jadelight Ranger , +4 Biomancer's Familiar

-4 Merfolk Branchwalker , +4 Simic Ascendancy

-4 Wildgrowth Walker , +3 Evolution Sage , +1 Stony Strength

This combination should give you super-rapid growth of your creatures power with +1/+1 counters and an alternative win-con with the effect of Simic Ascendancy . I would look to have Sylvan Awakening in the side-board to be able to swing with an army of 2/2's after using Nissa's ultimate effect.

I suppose that we could design the sideboard so that we could swap out the adapt and the explore themes, but I would prefer some control options.

I really like the adjustments you made here! Of course it doesn't matter what I think—it matters what you think and how you like the deck, obviously. How has it been playing with the Top, Puzzle Box and the smaller number of counter-spells?

As far as what I would take out first, I’d say Khalni Gem and Frilled Mystic seem rather weak to me in the sense they arent contributing much to the theme of your deck. Id definitely take those out for something like Cyclonic Rift , Thassa, God of the Sea or Berserk . By the way—Berserk is a hilarious suggestion for this deck! I love it as an aggro-option for your commander. It may end up as a dead card in your hand most of the time but how awesome would it be to kill some with commander damage with that?!

If you want to protect Animar then Blind Seer would be good but you could also add in Glen Elendra Archmage , or if you want a budget card Frilled Mystic to counter some spells. Or is you want to get slow down an engine you gan use Venser, Shaper Savant . Each of this is a good option to protect Animar.

Took out Huatli's Raptor for Paradise Druid and added Growth Spiral for some more ramp/fixing - shifted focus to more of a flash archetype than straight midrange with Frilled Mystic

Boroswins on Sultai Flash

I love the deck. I playtested some, and came up with the following:

  1. The deck needs a way to protect Wilderness reclamation from enchantment removal. +3 Negate and -1 Status / Statue -1 Forced Landing -1 Vraska's Contempt in SB to account for it.
  2. The Vraska's Contempt is really important though, so I'd move the 1 copy to Main and maybe drop an Incubation / Incongruity .
  3. The Callous Dismissal played very well, and while I wasn't thrilled with it when I initially reviewed the decklist, I really like it after playing. The bounce is nice on the ooze if nothing else or to recharge a Vivien, and of course helps a lot before an attack.
  4. Frilled Mystic is great in any Wilderness Reclamation deck, since it Flashes even without Vivien and protects the Reclamation while still being a body. I'm not sure what to drop for it, maybe -1 Thief of Sanity and -1 Hostage Taker to get at least 2 of them in and see what you think of them. They have been a 4-of in every Bant Flash deck I have tested.

Overall I really like your theme on it. This is the first Sultai mix I've seen, and the removal is something the Bant mix really misses. Nice work.

SMASHER101 on Building Frilled Mystic

4 weeks ago

I play against old standard decks as well as decks using the lagacy banlist (nothing anywhere near compedetive). I want to build a fun deck with Frilled Mystic Growth-Chamber Guardian maybe Vivien's Arkbow and other fun instant speed things. Suggestions of cards and lists are welcome. I want to stay blue green.

PickleNutz on Simic Counters (proliferate)

I debated putting Frilled Mystic in a few times, but I like the idea of having more Chamber Sentry s. Herald of Secret Streams in play testing was slow and often offered nothing more than a way to sneak in Hungering Hydra damage, so I am going to drop a few of them for Chamber.

Cool deck. I think that the deck needs more interaction. Right now your only interaction is the Chamber Sentry and the Blast Zone . Maybe something like a Frilled Mystic because it deals with your opponents play but also is then a creature that you can put counters on. Also the Herald of Secret Streams seems a little over kill because many of your creatures already have evasion with flying and trample.
