Well, lets see. Some of the ones not yet suggested are Gifts Ungiven (which has added functionallity other than being a tutor) all of the cards with transmute, if you aren't looking for Helix Pinnacle in particular you also have Merchant Scroll and Summoner's Pact.

Which tutors the best to use and also legal in modern? I'm trying to find some for a Sultai Helix Pinnacle deck I've been working on and I'm new to the modern format in general.

Freed from the Real Pemmin's Aura create infinite mana with Zaxara, the Exemplary, Bloom Tender, or Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. Helix Pinnacle is a great wincon, and Doubling Season doubles counters and tokens so it fits better than Parallel Lives. Walking Ballista with infinite mana creates infinite damage too check my deck out Zaxara, Nightmare Hydra

Hey Hoobynobber7395! Yeah, I've thought about adding Helix Pinnacle as an additional win condition. Might be a nice 'deal with this or else' card to throw in the mix and I actually have a copy just sitting in a binder. I'll see if I can put it to use and squeeze it in here, but cuts are getting tough.

I'll take a peek at your deck now, cheers!

Zaxara, Nightmare Hydra check out my deck for any help

there are so many ways to win with a few upgrades,

Simic Ascendancy + any x cost spell with Zaxara, the Exemplary on the battlefield

Helix Pinnacle + infinite mana combo

infinite mana combo + Blue Sun's Zenith or Pull from Tomorrow= play your whole deck and win from any of the other wincons

infinite mana combo + Mind Grind

infinite mana combo + Walking Ballista


Seedborn Muse will let you constantly keep untapping everything

Nyxbloom Ancient gives you 3 times as much mana along with Doubling Cube to then double it again

You definitely need more big mana sinks to abuse the infinite mana. You have some cards like that like Helix Pinnacle and Walking Ballista but you could stand to abuse cards like Staff of Domination and Thrasios, Triton Hero to draw your deck at instant speed and win with Thassa's Oracle with countermagic backup at the ready. Cards that have a similar "I Win" the game effect as a result of having no Library : Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are cards to consider.

If thats the route you want to take Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo can go infinite with colorless mana unless you have a colored mana rock or mana dork at the ready. It also helps win at instant speed or at worse cast a number of big spells in a turn.

Another infinite combo to consider would be Grim Monolith + Power Artifact. But since this isnt an artifact based deck Power Artifact would be a dead draw. A more fitting card to combo with would be Nyxbloom Ancient. It can go infinite with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith.

These combos are cool and all but unless you have a big X spell like Blue Sun's Zenith or Stroke of Genius to have players draw their deck, you will need your fair share of tutors. The list currently has alot of the major ones but one I would include would be Natural Order in the place of Tooth and Nail . If you are going to run some amount of expensive green fatties like for example, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger its better to cheat it out of the deck than expend more resources over the course of turns to cast them naturally.

Aside from counters, I am not seeing much in the way of disruption in your creature base. Cards like the aforementioned Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or similar creatures with back breaking effects could see some consideration in the top end of the deck.

I would also recommend some more recursion spells. Cards like Gaea's Blessing and Memory's Journey can bring back combo pieces you otherwise lost into the deck. Eternal Witness is the all-star of the category but Regrowth like effects should have some slots in the deck if you plan to go all in on combo.

Some cards I feel could be cut from the deck could be Birthing Pod and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. Pod cares alot about the CMC of your deck and as it stands its very lopsided. As for Uro, I feel he will be under utilized in this list. As a 6/6 for 3 with those abilities it is amazing, however, exiling cards and potential combo pieces wouldn't be in your best interest if you plan to win with noncombat shenanigans . Uro would just be a 3 mana explore with upside and that might not be enough for what you are trying to do here.

I am probably missing some cards that are not coming to mind at the moment. I'll comment again with other cards once they come to mind.
