Gilder Bairn works as another counter-doubler.

I would drop a couple lands and add in more mana rocks:

Gilded Lotus , Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Unity come to mind.

Overall, I like the build. +1 from me.

hi goldlion, thank you for your comment, compliment and your suggestions. lets start from the top:

Gilder Bairn looks interessting and costs only 3 CMC. Thanks good, but how do you plan on consistently tapping it, to untapp it? Attacking with it doesn't seems that smart and there are not that many other ways the deck offers to just tap creatures.

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen was in my top 110 and probably a card it took me a long time to cut. By now I can't tell you exactly why I cut it, but maybe I'll give him a try at my next EDH GameDay.

Defense of the Heart , you got this one right! With Defense of the Heart I am usually looking for creatures with a suiting etb effect to answer to the current board state. My play group so far never went to destroy it and usually 3 or more creatures is faster done than I expected. I see the same issue on Pattern of Rebirth here. Waiting for a good sac-outlet might take way longer than Defense of the Heart to trigger. But Ill still keep it in mind, thank you.

Underrealm Lich is in the decklist ^^. I guess you oversaw that one. I am thinking about including Doom Whisperer , however I dont know what to cut yet.

Nice take on her! I like the planeswalker focus. It's too bad Vraska, Golgari Queen is the only one under 5cmc. Good thing you get the land in this deck, by the looks of it!

Gilder Bairn is another counter doubler.

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen could be an almost wincon with all this lands-matters stuff. A scapeshift with him and the amount of lands you'll likely get out does great things. Then play 3-4 of the lands again from the graveyard that turn for a couple more triggers. I'd almost prefer that over Titania, Protector of Argoth .... almost. I run him in my Gitrog deck and he definitely performs. If only he had trample.

Pattern of Rebirth is a great tutor in here. Defense of the Heart I fear to be such a lightning rod just announcing your pull out two creatures. I always worry about people either removing it, or hold up removal for the creatures... though I suppose in most cases you're going for their ETBs, so the second item isn't an issue. I do like that ability to sac the Pattern of Rebirth creature in response to something to get the trigger though.

Underrealm Lich does serious work with Muldrotha. Take your sorcery, send your permanents to the yard. Because you're not a combo deck, I'd run that over Doom Whisperer . If you were trying to combo off though, then doom whisperer would be the one for this.

Vorel of the Hull Clade and Gilder Bairn to double those counters.

Or perhaps the combo of Pili-Pala and Grand Architect to fire off huge Hydras and winning nearly instantly with Simic Ascendancy.

You're missing a few big heckin cards.

Cephalid Constable is miraculously underrated, Drumhunter is a personal howling mine AND a mana dork, Elvish Visionary draws a card, Experiment One and Pelt Collector are excellent one-drops, Fertilid is awesome repeatable ramp, Forgotten Ancient is bat-shit insane with four players, Gilder Bairn is both adorable and quite functional, Glen Elendra Archmage is a repeatable negate, Kalonian Hydra is hilarious (and it's a 0/0 so I think you can trigger Ezuri's ability before his ETB), Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is a powerhouse, Managorger Hydra get too big too quickly for most opponents to handle, Novijen Sages is a nice draw engine, Permeating Mass is fantastic in this deck, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Toothy, Imaginary Friend are such a good combo, Plaxcaster Frogling is great protection, Scavenging Ooze is awesome (Meren is in my meta, idk about you), Seedborn Muse is good anywhere, Simic Manipulator leads to fun shenanigans, Sporeback Troll, also good protection, Tuskguard Captain is perfect evasion, Ulvenwald Tracker is about as good as green removal gets, and Wild Beastmaster is another Cultivator of Blades, but a little less for a little less mana. Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty are a couple gems, Bred for the Hunt, Doubling Season, and Hadana's Climb  Flip are great for countered up dudes, Rhystic Study, which should honestly go in every blue EDH deck, Cloudstone Curio it's better than Panharmonicon in this, Strionic Resonator is also probably better than Panharmonicon here. Also a Thran Dynamo might do ya good in the mana department.

@griffstick: Irony; I never truly needed a tribe for this deck anyway; & if I did, I'd once again go through my "Minority Confirmity" (Liking something nobody else usually would.), & not do either Eldrazi, or Ixalan Merfolk. Thanks though.

Anyway, I hope I don't have to cut a Magus just for the original (Candelabra of Tawnos in particular is expensive as crap for me... X/ & to think I can handle most rocks...), that said, I wonder what cards to cut in advance. Genesis Hydra isn't the same as the origin it was based on as it only nets one card. 1card. Fascination is Group Hug; Yuck. 2down. Stream of Life is good for Infinite Life, but useless in competitive play. 3down. Kindred Summons as this isn't Tribal Based. 4down. Fungal Behemoth = Why did I even throw this in? 5down. Altered Ego is to costly, & I could find better Clones anyway. 6down. Several other things include Gilder Bairn + Paradise Mantle + Training Grounds, & Aluren + Dream Stalker + Tidespout Tyrant are really clunky as 3 card combos. One less, & it would've been fine for now. 12down.

I'll keep these as arxhives until I can find 2 card variants for both combos...
