Momir Vig, Simic Visionary Discussion
1 week ago
if you want the idea of tutoring a creature with every other creature, look up a deck called hackball momir. It basically uses cards that say something like change one color word with another to make Momir Vig, Simic Visionary's ability make you tutor a green creature with every green creature cast, then you use elves and Heritage Druid to make lots of mana and end up in an infinite mana loop. It's a very competitive deck, and very fun to play, AND pretty budget (like $70)

That said, I've been thinking hard about Spellseeker, but I don't think I will end up playing it in this list, mainly due to its expensive mana cost. Compared to Merchant Scroll, it's 4 vs 3 mana to find a hack. While this might not sound significant, this is a pretty important number, as the turn after we play Momir Vig, Simic Visionary we typically have about 5, sometimes 6 mana. A 3 mana hack can be cast, along with a 1cmc green creature, and finally Quirion Ranger, and fully start off a chain. However, Spellseeker costs 1 more and wouldn't be able to be used for this purpose.
There's also the idea that Heart Warden is more useful outside of combo turn than it seems. We need a certain density of 2 mana ramp, and if it wasn't Heart Warden it might end up being something like Voyaging Satyr.
This is sort of out of character for me, but for once, I think that freeing slots might not be favorable, since it will decrease the quality of the slot that is left. However, I'd certainly encourage people to explore and test this out even more, since Spellseeker has a lot of interesting facets which I've most likely missed. As it stands, I like the "more, but more useful" setup we have with our combo slots, as opposed to "fewer, but less useful". Thanks for your really thought-out comment, though! I haven't thought about it from the perspective of replacing Merchant Scroll before.

Oh, yea I didn't even see that. Thanks. I will definitely try to fit those in. No I haven't considered putting Momir Vig, Simic Visionary as the commander. I like having the recur Experiment Kraj since it is the commander, but I will definitely think about it.

Actually, Gyre Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Viridian Joiner, and Marwyn, the Nurturer allow you to generate infinite mana (and sometimes infinite power/toughness) via Umbral Mantle, Gilder Bairn, and Sword of the Paruns when the Kraj gains the former cards' mana abilities.
But yeah, ramp never hurts either. I would at least remove Aquastrand Spider and Reason // Believe, those cards don't seem very impactful.
Ever considered making Momir Vig, Simic Visionary the commander and using him to tutor for Kraj and combo pieces?

+1 from me and a idea folder save =) I run Momir Vig, Simic Visionary as my Simic commander with Experiment Kraj in the 99. I love Experiment Kraj and how he offers so many different plays depending on what other decks are in the meta.

Absorb(Join Forces as I’ve been told), each player starting with you may pay mana and then draws X cards.

Here's two questions: how long have you been playing with this group and do you know who they've played against before? Because honestly, that may be part of the issue.
Like everyone has that commander they have awful memories of who they just wanna get off the table as quick as possible. For example, I have awful memories of playing against my friends Jhoira of the Ghitu deck and his Momir Vig, Simic Visionary deck and now whenever I play against a deck with either of them helming it, I attack them first. Like in similar games, I've also seen Avacyn and Glissa decks get quick hated off the table even if it's like, super basic decks.
It might not be you, it might be the fact you're picking commanders the others don't wanna deal with.
