Master Biomancer Discussion

Xanins on Inexorable Ooze

I don't really disagree, but I have Biomancer's Familiar in there to serve as a back up Training Grounds for Deadeye and Biogenic Ooze's abilities. I was considering maybe cutting Wonder and Entomb for Akroma's Memorial and Master Biomancer . That way I retain my ability to give my creatures Flying.. and they get a ton of other keyword abilities too.

The only issue is the increased CMC of Akroma's Memorial and the greater ease of removing it.

Thoughts? :o

Master Biomancer is an amazing card. If you're asking me for cuts, though, I'm not sure. Personally, looking at your build, I would probably cut Biomancer's Familiar . As your build runs a total of 4 activated abilities and 1 with adapt, I think it doesn't go as far as other cards might. Granted, biomancer's familiar is a great card, but I think it requires some build-around.

I agree, the synergy with the evolve creatures is there ( Fathom Mage especially), BUT.. I get the same thing via Deadeye Navigator 's bounce ability + Biogenic Ooze (for the most part).

Additionally, I can reduce the cost of his activated ability with Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar to just . And also, I could reset Fathom Mage 's counters with a bounce as well.

So, I'd get fatter oozes from Ooze Flux , but it costs me more mana and is conditional on me having counters to manipulate. Sticking to just Deadeye Navigator keeps my combo engine smaller and easier to handle. Also, I can tutor for Deadeye, but not for Ooze Flux .

Master Biomancer Intrigues me, though. He seems especially useful as a general lord/ pump. He also synergizes with Coat of Arms , acting like a second Arcane Adaptation . Any ideas how I could fit him in?

I noticed you have Ooze Flux on your maybeboard. I don't know if you've tried it in your build, but it has worked phenomenally in mine. Simply Ooze Flux + any of your creatures with evolve can give you and endless supply of ooze by itself, and being able to stack that on top of things like Corpsejack Menace or Master Biomancer or any token/counter doubler.. It gets insane. There's nothing quite like pumping out 16/16's for two mana each. I would go as far as to say it is one of the most powerful cards in my build, as well as a personal favorite.

DemonDragonJ on How Do Doubling Season, Master ...

3 weeks ago

If a player controls a Doubling Season and a Master Biomancer and then summons Ghave, Guru of Spores , how many +1/+1 counters will Ghave have? I presume that it shall have 14, since it normally would have five from itself and two from the biomancer, for a total of 7, and 7 doubled is 14.

I think around the same block I tried running an evolve deck, it was just a bit too slow to keep up with others, so I eventually 'evolved' it into this strange counter based system that was effectively placing out huge creatures on turn 2/3 due to the ramp it had that synergized well with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

I'm running out of fingers! Kept the deck list because that's how proud I was when I was dominating my local game locale with it.

My specific card suggestions to look into are Kalonian Hydra , Master Biomancer , and Prophet of Kruphix . There are new simic cards out that are a good look into as well primarily Stony Strength and Hydroid Krasis

Keep it up though, evolve is a fun mechanic to toy around with.

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)
