Maelstrom Wanderer Discussion
22 hours ago
Hey slayingmatt1234 thanks for the feedback, all suggestions are appreciated!
After looking through your deck, it does seem like we've taken quite the different direction to Karametra. When I first brewed this deck, I wanted to take advantage of the flash/recursion creatures that trigger his landfall ability into the most powerful X cost spells I could find. This led me towards a lot of mana doublers, high ramp spells, and even ramp creatures. The end result led me into 2 recurring scenarios in play; snowball out of control with 13+ lands by turn 5-6 consistently pulling Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (My personal favourite card), or getting consistently locked down by the 3 other players who do not want to see Vorinclex every game.
Now for your suggestions, I used to run Stonecloaker for the same reason you mentioned, but I never found using him more than once a turn to be helpful, and any of the enchantress creatures at same or less cost seemed to net me card advantage more often if not always.
Knight of the Reliquary seemed to play too slow for me, I put a lot of creature tutoring so my main landfall triggers have to be multiple triggers in a turn. I found the same with Emeria Shepherd, thought a GREAT card, I just never looked to pick it over any 7+ drop that I normally tutor for. I also leaned towards creature protection over recursion, with cards like Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, and Teferi's Protection, I always found the instant answer to boardwipes to lean in my favor and end up setting everyone else behind.
I will look to add more enchantments if I can find some that tackle the main decks in my playgroup. In my playgroup specifically, I found some interesting answers that I included in the deck. Ground Seal against The Scarab God deck, Blind Obedience against Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder 's Sneak Attack + Maelstrom Wanderer deck, and Stony Silence + Aura of Silence against Sharuum the Hegemon artifact control deck + Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith voltron equipment. The end result now, was a consistent easy 3v1 win.
If you had the pleasure of speaking to any of my friends in my playgroup, they'd tell you that in play, this deck is a TERROR. Ulvenwald Hydra is a champ for cheating Rogue's Passage into play into an easy 20+ damage, an early Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger through Natural Order always locks my opponents to pay from behind, and Worldspine Wurm becomes so easy to play with Fauna Shaman + Garruk, Caller of Beasts / Selvala's Stampede. Any of the instant X spells with a mana doubler guarantees a win ( White Sun's Zenith, Entreat the Angels, Hydra Broodmaster ). A well timed Rishkar's Expertise into Overwhelming Stampede or Genesis Wave closes out easy.

Fist of Suns lets you cast 2 spells for mana from Ramos ability.
Maelstrom Wanderer gives 3 counters, and each card you cascade into also gives more counters. Same for any other cascade card. You may want to put mroe of them.

Well it's not Simic, but Maelstrom Wanderer is one of my favorite ramp commanders (and he includes Simic colors). Casting an 8-mana spell and ending up with 22 mana of value is a very good feeling.

Yeah, Scapeshift is definitely outside my price range. The only time I'd ever spend more than $30 (and that's really pushing my budget) on a single card would be for a fetchland. Every card In my collection worth $20 or more I've cracked from a pack or traded for.
Group hug subtheme would probably be a direction I could take the list. There's an enchantment I can't remember that's like Propaganda/Ghostly Prison but taxes equal to the basic land types among your lands. I still want to add more cascade cards because I haven't been able to cast much yet. Probably going to pick up Maelstrom Wanderer first.

What about Maelstrom Wanderer? Sure, it's not a dragon and you've got a few 8-drops, but 2 free spells and a haste enabler for 8 mana can really turn things around for you if you're a little behind. I serve the Ur-Dragon as well, and I'm going to test out Strionic Resonator with him. There are enough dragons with triggered abilities to make it worthwhile, and getting to copy Ur-Dragon's would be ridiculous.
