Kiora, Master of the Depths Discussion
23 hours ago
If you are considering walkers Chandra, Flamecaller can wipe a weenie deck out the turn she comes down and is almost a prefect fit for the deck. Nissa, Vital Force is able to animate your non manlands and might be worth a look. Both jace and arlinn are ok but not great and saheeli may also prove valuable purely for her +1, but again kind of meh for your deck. Kiora, Master of the Depths on the other hand is pretty bonkers if you animate a land and untap it and a non animated one. Her ultimate will end games also, 3 8/8 creatures yes please. Honestly almost amy walker would be useful since they provide value every turn they are on the table. If you have not seen it yet the new nicol bolas is pretty ridiculous and would be worth planning on building around. I myself am planning on running a super friends deck that is all five colors and using Deploy the Gatewatch to drop out nicol bolas and hopefully Tamiyo, Field Researcher since in tandem I imagine they will be a pain to deal with.

I thought about it at first, but that will remove Ensnaring Bridge from the deck. Really want to keep it to prevent big monster attacking me like Tarmogoyf, Primeval Titan, Death's Shadow, or even Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, too.
Still testing to refine this deck before SCG modern event at Syracuse, NY.

considering you have Kiora, Master of the Depths in your list I'd say Weaver of Currents as Kiora's +1 allows you to untap creatures. With some changes (building more heavily around Kiora though, while she rotates out soon) an ideal play could look like this:
Ideal play Show
- T1: land G/U
- T2: land G/U --> any 2 CMC mana-dork (like Druid of the Cowl or Naga Vitalist)
- T3: land G/U --> tap mana-dork for mana --> play Kiora and use +1 --> untap a land and the mana dork --> you have 2 mana for your disposal
- T4: with what you would have on board now and Kiora's +1 you would have access to 6 to up to 8 mana depending whether you play another land this turn or have played another mana-dork in the previous turn (Could potentially unlock Nissa's ultimate on turn 4!). Let's assume you play Weaver of Currents in this turn.
- T5: now you would have access to up to 12 mana when using Kiora's +1 on Weaver of Currents, depending on the amount of lands and mana-dorks you have in play.
An alternative route without a 2 CMC mana-dork on turn 2, Weaver of Currents on turn 3 and Kiora on turn 4 allows for up to 10 mana on turn 5.
Obviously these changes would change how the deck would play.

Pretty sweet build! I'm glad she likes Simic like me :) In my opinion, you'd be better served mainboarding all 4 Bristling Hydra and perhaps a second Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and taking out the Aether Swoopers. Hydra is faaaaantastic! I play a temur build here: Temur Energy B-B-Beats with Elder Deep-Fiend, which is a pretty budget and really great card you could look into.
I'd also exchange the Chilling Grasps and Cartouche of Strengths in the side for 4 Essence Scatter, and maybe pick up a Lifecrafter's Bestiary or similar card (second copy of Nissa? Kiora, Master of the Depths? any card advantage permanent) to replace the Bristling Hydra you moved.
Best of luck to ya!

Interesting deck! Jace, Unraveler of Secrets might be good for this deck. Scry and draw, or bounce a creature. He's also pretty fast to ultimate, and that's a true back breaker. Kiora, Master of the Depths might also be good. +1 from me!
