Scion_of_Darkness on Bio-Epihpany

The mana engine for my deck is actually Overgrown Battlement with Axebane Guardian and to find Biovisionary or Genesis Wave I use Drift of Phantasms which is a defender, blocks Dragons and is a situational tutor. Drift may not be perfect for the rest of your deck, but if you run it, it can search for Bio and the Wave. You're going for a more competitive build though so my list might be more mellow comparably.

Scion_of_Darkness, I had seen those cards and considered them at first. I decided to use drownyard, however, as you don't need biovisionary to be any where to win the game with it. When drownyard for your deck, you can put your copy of hour of eternity into the pile without the visionaries. In this instance you can win on your turn with the visionary trigger "no matter what" without ever having to play a biovisionary before the winning turn. Genesis Wave might seem like a good switch, but there are no ways to tutor for it like Merchant Scroll which results in less consistent wins. (also in some cases you can use drownyard x2 to guarantee one of a pair of duplicate cards that were discovered by a reason cast)

In my experience, Rite of Replication and Infinite Reflection has been the most convenient route to winning with Biovisionary, since you only need one to be out. You have the mana with the Pili-Tech combo. You could also Genesis Wave it into play.

Genesis Wave! It's a great card that's just like Villainous Wealth but also hits lands.

Genesis Wave and Birthing Pod could both help bring some specific creatures out. Or you could just Entomb or Buried Alive a Protean Hulk, recur him, then sacrifice him and put all your creatures on the board

Also the only way I can think of off the top of my head to get pinnacle from your library in mono green is Genesis Wave which seems pretty fun in your deck anyways.

hkhssweiss I appreciate the suggestions. I finally had a chance to do a little playing this weekend now that all the cards have arrived. I may end up putting in a Demonic Tutor and I'll almost certainly end up putting in Green Sun's Zenith. As for some of the other cards, the deck isn't quite dredgy enough to get proper value from cars like Entomb. Also, I think im gonna pull Seismic Assault, all it does is sit on my board since I have more valuable options for land discard. Plus Realms Uncharted and Genesis Wave can quickly turn the game from a fading prospect to a dominant victory even at low values for x.

Thanks for the feedback, ZendikariWol! Metallic Mimic is something to look into.

I don't run Coat of Arms because I don't really token much with the deck, and there are definitely others who do in my meta. Thay'd benefit more than I do using it.

I never even knew Kindred Summons existed! That's gonna take some testing for sure.

Mentor of the Meek would probably do some real work! Definitely gonna nab one.

As far as Nissa, Genesis Mage's role, she isn't ramp at all, but an engine. Her first ability is all Stax. It enables mana elves to tap again, additional Parlays from Selvala, Explorer Returned, and untaps lands to cast whatever gets drawn. If I'm using her - ability, I've probably already got the win. I don't run planeswalkers expecting to actually get their Ult off, but if someone actually lets Nissa stick, I will definitely punish them with a Genesis Wavex10

Give it a playtest, you might find it fun!
