Wow, super budget...

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Good alt win-con here that doesn't rely on combat.

Herald of Secret Streams - Another finisher here.

Necropolis Regent - Close enough to your price lol.

Thrummingbird - Really good here.

Winding Constrictor - Another good cheap card here.

Ready / Willing and Unbreakable Formation - Protect your board... on the cheap.

Now just a few all-stars in the $2-$3 range.

Vigor , Master Biomancer , Bloodspore Thrinax , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Beast Within , Swords to Plowshares , and Imprisoned in the Moon .

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget but has plenty of budget options. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

Thanks @Jordensmash, your deck looks fun! I like the explore package, especially Jadelight Ranger . I used to run Kalonian Hydra , Master Biomancer and Gyre Sage but have recently done an aggressive rework to try and get the CMC down as low as possible to make the deck faster. My buddies that I play with most often have very fast goblin and Izzet aggro decks. I do still keep those higher-CMC cards in the sideboard for multiplayer, and adding a Verdurous Gearhulk would be dope now that it's come down in price. Re your suggestions, I see the avg CMC of your deck is 2.3 w/ 22 lands, and I'm at 1.4 and 19. If I were to incorporate some of your list, what do you think would be highest priority to add, and what might I drop? Or would it be an all-or-nothing choice when it comes to the explore mechanic? Wildgrowth Walker is definitely best if I go heavy explore. Thanks again!

This looks like a perfect list to fit Master Biomancer into. It seriously synergizes with everything going on here!

What do you think of this combo:

  • Any creature with 3 +1/+1 counters.
  • Galloping Lizrog x3.
  • Win on upkeep.

A mere 17 mana combo! And with Alchemist's Refuge , you can do it at instant speed! If you feel like this Hearthstone-level of BS-ery is acceptable in your games, I think it'd be the most exciting way to play into the Ascendancy win-con. Just play pure defense until then, foggy creatures, tokens, counterspells, etc.

Since your playgroup probably wouldn't appreciate that combo, however, you can focus on chaining Lizrogs for a few turns and protecting Ascendancy. The game plan then simplifies to:

  • Stick creatures that contest the board. Use them as soft removal with Clear Shot and Mutant's Prey type effects.
  • Draw your deck to find 3 Galloping Lizrog .
  • Play the Lizrogs for an inevitable doom-parade of mutants. Hopefully they will be threatening enough to prevent your opponent from dealing with the Ascendancy itself.
  • Curator's Ward might be overkill for protecting Simic Ascendancy , you have Turn Aside already which is probably better. Feels more interactive too, I think.

My only other suggestions would be Master Biomancer , Fathom Mage and Zameck Guildmage (or Combine Guildmage , but Zameck is better I think) if you want a slower build-up. Vigean Hydropon maybe? And Novijen, Heart of Progress seems like an easy include. I like your idea behind Hadana's Climb  Flip, but to me that leans towards Ascendancy as the secondary win-con, not primary.

Have you considered Master Biomancer ?

I have another question; if a player controls a Master Biomancer and summons a Fathom Mage , will they draw two cards?
