Been working on a similar deck, mine is Bant tho, Merfolk Skydiver makes it all work a bit more effectively and Teferi prevents opp from interacting onceoncewe go off. Magistrate Reclamate Proliferate Dominate (Bant)

I do like Voltaic Servant. Didn't think of that.

Sorry for not answering your comment, which is appreciated. I started to answer twice over the easter weekend, but tapped out was super-slow and kept crashing.

Siren Stormtamer fills a number of gaps for me, providing some protection for my other creatures, coming in as a 1-drop creature with flying that can take +1/+1 counters and do some early damage in-the-air, etc.

Sharktocrab , Aeromunculus and Merfolk Skydiver are all fun cards that slot right into this deck. I went with Skydiver, I suppose, mainly for the chance of repeated proliferate which is made cheaper by Biomancer's Familiar .

Sharktocrab comes in at 4 cmc and I might use it if I could increase to 25 lands - I just don't see that happening at the moment, but I will keep the crab in mind when I start playing and refining this deck.

Hydroid Krasis just doesn't work for me. I see that card as a useful mana-sink. If you have tons of spare, untapped mana, it could be great. Under normal conditions, casting it for 4 mana doesn't give you the best 4 mana creature, similarly casting for 6 mana is nice, but not great. I am certainly not going to sit with Krasis in by hand for 9 or 10 turns in the hope of eventually getting a big whammy.

Zegana, Utopian Speaker started out in the Merfolk Skydiver slot, then got moved to the side-board, then got dropped from the side-board as I found other cards that I wanted more. It is certainly a card to think about when play-testing and refining the deck.

There are certainly a number of different options for a Simic Adapt & Proliferate deck, which could be great fun to play in WAR. Happy brewing and I am sure that we can make something competitive out of this theme. Roalesk, Apex Hybrid might very well be the apex card in the final best version of this deck - I just have not looked seriously at a higher average cmc version of this deck yet.

I'd try to use Biomancer's Familiar and Merfolk Skydiver instead of polen druid. this way you can still put counters and be able to cheap proliferate

Murphy77 thanks for the comment! Previous versions of the deck ran Simic Ascendancy , but I found it a bit lackluster. Shapers of Nature and hopefully Merfolk Skydiver can do the same thing, but better. I am extremely hesitant to include Growth-Chamber Guardian , as the decks purpose is to get out sharktocrab and tap creatures, not support mid-range aggro. But I appreciate the feedback!

Jace's Triumph is a strictly-better Divination, but both are pretty bad.

Contentious Plan and Steady Progress seem both like cards you should add here. Same with Merfolk Skydiver and Evolution Sage .

You'll want ways to reuse ETBs to get energy again: Crystal Shard , Erratic Portal , Conjurer's Closet .
