Minamo, School at Water's Edge Discussion

Bold question: How are you going to win the game? You might want to add some big creatures or perhaps Elvish Vanguard since you have quite a lot of Elves..

You should also fit Minamo, School at Water's Edge in there somewhere for Ojutai.

Hey, you're missing Command Tower :) There's a few creatures who when they ETB can untap a creature this is very good with Vannifar to chain activations a turn.
Quirion -> Scryb -> Bounding -> Hippocamp -> five drop (Acidic, Mulldrifter , Peregrine, etc.). Quirion and Scryb can be repeatable untap of Vannifar each turn by bouncing a Forest. Wirewood Lodge and Minamo, School at Water's Edge are lands that can untap Vannifar. Thousand-Year Elixir can give Vannifar haste as well as untap her. Fatestitcher is a good four drop here since he can be repeatable untap or be untap when unearthed.
Mana dorks are good with Vannifar. Playing her possibly turn three and then they can be used as fodder to get two/three drops.
- Birds of Paradise
- Llanowar Elves
- Elvish Mystic
- Fyndhorn Elves
- Arbor Elf
- Kiora's Follower : can untap Vannifar or a land.
- Priest of Titania
With these Elves Wirewood Symbiote can be another repeatable per turn untap of Vannifar that's also good with Sage, Visionary, Farhaven Elf , Coiling Oracle , etc. Woodland Bellower is great to tutor for Witness to then also recur a creature you saced or any other card in your graveyard. Bellower is a good six drop to Vannifar into Hulk.
Lands to consider adding:
Good luck with your deck.

Paradox Engine does not work fir this deck as you do not caste the new creature, it simply comes into play. I am not a fan of Freed from the Real as it is a dead card without the commander in play and I also have no way to search it, yes that can be said about a few other cards currently in the deck, but those cards just win me the game while freed does not.
I am not running Minamo, School at Water's Edge as I don't have a copy and I would rather not spend the 15 bucks currently. As for Wirewood Lodge I find I am better off just searching for a creature that does the same thing then to run a land I cant easily search for.

Glacial Chasm is my go-to land if I think I might be vulnerable to aggro or rushed by tokens. You should be able to combo out before it kills you. Retreat to Coralhelm might not be bad. Also why are you not running Minamo, School at Water's Edge and/or Wirewood Lodge ?

Lemme see, well you dropped some untappers 3 minutes ago according to the revisions so here is what is left: Quirion Ranger, Wirewood Symbiote, Concordant Crossroads, Vitalize, Dramatic Reversal, Scryb Ranger, Kiora's Follower, Pestermite, Deceiver Exarch, Bounding Krasis, Intruder Alarm, Thousand-Year Elixir, Archaeomancer (used with Spellseeker on 3 for Vitalize or Dramatic Reversal), Breaching Hippocamp, Disciple of the Ring, Chakram Retriever, Woodland Bellower (used to fetch a Bounding Krasis), and Great Oak Guardian for untappers/haste enablers for Vannifar, that is 18, with 2 undesirable lands excluding their untapping abilities, Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Wirewood Lodge.
Otherwise, the commander-centric cards don't end there. Cards that are otherwise generally bad outside of a strategy aiming to sacrifice creatures as fodder like Dosan the Falling Leaf (does see play in Sisay because it is legendary), Manglehorn (does see play in blood pod because of Birthing Pod) or a card like Archetype of Endurance in the deck specifically to be fetched after you sacrifice Protean Hulk to Prime Speaker Vannifar are clearly bad outside of this commander centric build. This means 23 clearly commander centric cards.

Thinking of a Vannifar line has been tricky. If we use her as the commander alone, assuming we sac a 0 drop, we could use her to pod into Quirion Ranger => Scryb Ranger => Deceiver Exarch OR Pestermite => Breaching Hippocamp => Chakram Retriever OR Disciple of the Ring and cast or exile something respectively (wish Body Double worked here though and retained 5CMC) => Great Oak Guardian OR Woodland Bellower grabbing Bounding Krasis => Protean Hulk BUT our line stops there if we can't sac Hulk. If we do find a way to sac Hulk, we can grab Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Sage of Hours with a bunch of 0 drop creatures and win from there, but we can't untap Vannifar to sac Hulk on her own. I'm stumped. I mean we do have stuff like High Market to sac and even Minamo, School at Water's Edge to untap, but that doesn't feel as streamline. Thoughts Deckwatch crew?
