Master Biomancer Discussion
2 hours ago
Master Biomancer's ability isn't a triggered ability! Those begin with the words "When/Whenever/At". Biomancer modifies how a creature enters the battlefield.
Biovisionary gets the counters as he transitions from the stack (or from any other zone) to the battlefield. When he hits the field, he already has the counters and will trigger Gyre Sage's evolve ability.

Suppose I cast a Gyre Sage turn 2, then on turn 4 I cast Master Biomancer, then on turn 5 cast a Biovisionary? Obviously master biomancer is going too trigger the evolve effect, but that makes her a (2/3) which would mean that when I cast biovisionary (also a 2/3) there would be no trigger; however, with the 2 +1/+1 counters his stats would be (4/6), which would trigger it in that case. So can I stack those triggers so the resolve just like that?

This is a super promising build!! I would like to make a few recommendations though. First and foremost, you have too many big drops. They are all really good, but there will be a time during the game when you will won't be able to get any value off of your creatures because they will all be moderately expensive. I would recommend making the average CMC a little lower. Cards like Coiling Oracle and Courser of Kruphix are lower costed, fit in with your top of the library theme, and also work better with a ramp/value based strategy than cards like Master Biomancer and Murkfield Leige. Also, I'd add in a few copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Essentially, it can only help you. All of your creatures except Glen Elendra Archmage are green, and Nkythos can turbo out a number of your value generators turns before they would normally come out. Also note that Nykthos is incredible with Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl .
All in all: love this deck, easy +1 from me.

Came here from Reddit, gonna make some cut suggestions so you can fix your lands.
With so few lands that Zendikar's Roil isn't really doing anything for you. So I'd see that as a safe card to remove.Siege Behemoth, while a good card, is ultimately unnecessary in Elfball decks. I might also consider taking out Titania's Chosen as it doesn't really give much to the deck in terms of utility. By itself it's a 1/1 no evasion dude with no ways to really give it evasion. Sylvan Safekeeper isn't doing you any favors, either. Its utility is land-sac, something you don't want to do with only 24 lands. Maybe cut a few of your basic land search cards. You have almost as many ways to get basic lands as you do basic lands. Remember Freyalise makes mana dorks, so you'd be safe cutting a couple. Since you're ramping early I'd say a safe cut could be found in Lifespring Druid
Hedron Archive with so many other mana sources is effectively draw two cards for six mana, horribly inefficient.
Now to suggest some cards to put in the deck after you fix your land situation. All of the creatures suggested here are elves. And apart from Kindred Discovery, they're all fairly cheap.
Harmonize - Draw 3 for 4 mana. It's great.
Kindred Discovery - Name elf and draw for days.
Master Biomancer - Starts out by giving your incoming creatures 2 +1/+1 counters, but with Ezuri that number grows exponentially.
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter - Gives your smaller cards a little more value, or your big stuff a lot more value.
Sages of the Anima - In a creature focused deck this card is a bomb.

This looks like a fine deck, though maybe it could use some more card-draw. Personally, I would go for Cold-Eyed Selkie, Bident of Thassa or Rhystic Study. In terms of nice counter-adding cards, you could look into Master Biomancer or even Bloodspore Thrinax. Naturally, Doubling Season could greatly enhance your deck, but this requires quite an investment.
In case you need any more ideas, I am using a counter deck myself: Got them countered. Look into it if you like (and leave a comment/like if you want to). Cheers!

I'd drop the small draw and get bigger draws and wheelsDrop the small creatures and make Get X spells your not making real use of Kydele, Chosen of Kruphixshe is strong If you want to go infinite Umbral Mantle infinite mana if you draw 4 cards But if you don't like that idea just more wheels and Cards like Master Biomancer, Trygon Predator and Baral, Chief of Compliance do in the deck, Baral, loots but what does that do 1 card draw when you counter something but that doesn't put you ahead in less your using him as ramp but that is not reliable your running too few Sorceries and Instant for him to be good, I hope this gives you an idea of how I'd change the deck, But I have a bias I don't like the attack step so do take what I say with some understanding of my bias

Clever Impersonator could be another way to get more Master Biomancers out. Plaxcaster Frogling could be used to protect your creatures as well as divy out some counters before you get a Master Biomancer out. And Fathom Mage can help you dig through your deck.

Yes. Pretty much all the flash enablers are used including Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Yeva, Nature's Herald since many of the creatures in my build are green and because I runElvish Harbinger as a way to get yeva,Momir Vig, Simic Visionary,Master Biomancer,Rishkar, Peema Renegadeand Rashmi, Eternities Crafter. I also like this direction since it allows for the usage of a lot of the newer cards including Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Hostage Taker is just a powerhouse. Ill be posting the list soon, when I do ill drop a link. I really like that he has a number of available builds around him.
