Inquisition of Kozilek isn't too gruesome for your 7-year-old? Wow, he's a lot more mature than I was at 7 lol

As for actual suggestions, some number of Remands and Opts are probably good here, maybe instead of some of the really expensive finishers like Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Tasigur and Hooting Mandrills are usually good enough. Also, Hero's Downfall is a little on the expensive side for Modern, maybe Go for the Throat instead (assuming the art is OK; there's also a promo version Go for the Throat)?

Hello there.

Don't know if it's something you can like, but i recently worked on a fairly budget Simic build, based on Delver of Secrets  Flip and Hooting Mandrills: A Mandrill delving for a Dryad

Something could be said for Telling Time being better than Taigam's Scheming, and that Thought Scour fuels delver and delve. Distortion Strike, Artful Dodge, and Slip Through Space offer a lot of tempo, count as 2 cards each most of the time and work better with delve and delver than Aqueous Form, and Turn Aside seems like it could just be a sideboard card only, or just replace it with Spell Pierce, as for upgrades later, Spellskite immediately comes to mind. And Yavimaya Coast is still pretty budget. I know like... the basic fetches are pretty poor, but Terramorphic Expanse in addition to Evolving Wilds will increase some mana consistency and again help with delve, then you could probably go up to 4 Hooting Mandrills and 3 Become Immense.

Have fun!

Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.

Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.

If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:

Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

Hi, +1. I personally like Hooting Mandrills. Elvish Visionary, and maybe Nulltread Gargantuan could be what you are looking for? Rattleclaw Mystic is alright, too. There's also Shaman of the Great Hunt. Hopefully these help.

Exactly... Goyf, and also snaps, have lots of interplay with other cards ...which is something I'm sure he'll pick up on eventually. Cards with a lot of options can be confusing, too; I took out Sultai Charms after noticing he'd only ever use the draw/discard mode.

Delve he understands perfectly, so I'm considering adding Gurmag Angler, or Hooting Mandrills ...or possibly Murderous Cut.

I didn't plan on having as many planeswalkers in here as there are now, but he's very enthusiastic about them. He ultimate'ed Tamiyo whilst playing one of our first games. Ever since then, he thinks planeswalkers are the best cards. :D

Yeah, Vengevine keeps almost being busted. I wonder if, thanks to Hollow One, it's time has finally come ...

In this deck, Hooting Mandrills for sure. The floor (in a game with a ton of gravehate) is probably comparable: for a 0/1 Tarmogoyf vs. for a 4/4 Hooting Mandrills with Trample. But the ceiling on Mandrills is MUCH higher. For example, for , Goyf is going to be somewhere between a 4/5 (max based on this deck's mainboard) and an 8/9 (max possible, depending on the opponent's graveyard and sideboard choices). While the videos make it look like could easily be a 4/4 Hooting Mandrills with Trample, plus a 4/4 Hollow One, plus a 4/3 Vengevine with Haste. And of those, only the Vengevine has to worry about Fatal Push.

By the way, you can link cards using 2x square brackets on either side. Check out the Formatting Tips link under every comment window for more.
