Novijen, Heart of Progress Discussion
1 month ago
This looks awesome so far. I like the small spells, fat creatures approach.
If you have room for another colorless land, Novijen, Heart of Progress makes an alright secondary Gavony Township. Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker are also colorless and don't trigger your commander, but they're just freakin' sweet if you can proliferate them... maybe with a Fuel for the Cause.
Finally, some of my favorite janky build-around cards of all time, the counter enablers - Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, Ivorytusk Fortress, Mer-Ek Nightblade, Tuskguard Captain, Bramblewood Paragon, etc. These won't make your deck better, but maybe more fun. Big, fun, fat, lifelinky, flying, deathtouchy, tramply 10/10s.
You pretty much already nailed it though. Good stuff as always.

I'd probably go for a lower manacurve, as this is a somewhat too slow for modern... 4 Cloudfin Raptor and 4 Experiment One. In turn, I'd drop most of the Simic Manipulators, as they are 0/1 creatures, with a rather conditional tap-ability.
Cytoshape sounds like a bit too circumstantial, as does the plan of recasting anything unsummoned. But Ghostly Flicker could probably accomplish pretty much the same, without letting your opponent get to play counterspells or discard along the way. Isn't there some fight-card, that puts a +1/+1 counter on your creature pre-fight?

If you have ways of reliably getting access white mana, Gavony Township can quickly snowball your tokens out of control in a few turns, even faster if you got ways to untap permanents like Hidden Strings, throw Hardened Scales on top of that and you got yourself an avalanche. Though not as powerful - but in your colors - is the weaker version: Novijen, Heart of Progress
Also if you got any enchants that affect all of your creatures, Infiltrator's Magemark would effectively make all of them unblockable to non-defenders.

I have a few suggestions that I think would help speed this deck up and make it even deadlier than it already is.
Cards I think you could live without:
My first suggestion is to add 4 or 5 more land. 31 land is very low, especially for a four color build, and missing land drops will hinder your game plan significantly.
Second suggestion is to consider more mana ramp. Having great ramp is essential to a quick, efficient start. Starting off slow will usually get you killed.
Third suggestion is cards I like for this theme. Just a few badass toys for your deck to mess around with.
Fun card suggestions:

Let me give you some advise based on what I see in your list. Did you consider these cards:
- Novijen, Heart of Progress
- Hornet Queen
- Oran-Rief, the Vastwood
- Squirrel Nest
- Cold-Eyed Selkie
- Coiling Oracle
If I can be of any help on here, just give me a headsup on my wall. I am always willing to help people with their commander decks.

HaunterHunter: Thanks for the feedback!
Plaxcaster Frogling will definitely be making his way into the deck. One of my current fears is losing a utility creature or a heavy-hitter to spot-removal. Won't save me from board wipes, but that's why I have Cauldron of Souls.
Gyre Sage isn't too important for a four-color deck since she would mostly end up being a source of colorless mana. That being said, I'll look at what changes I make and see if I can find a spot for her; dorks are always nice!
How I managed to miss Bloodspore Thrinax I'll never know. I need to go back and do a Devour/Graft search on Gathered to see what slipped through my fingers.
I don't describe the deck as "Proliferate" so much as "Look at all my counters." Granted, Atraxa does have a Proliferate trigger, but it's secondary to most of my other goals for the deck. That being said, I am considering Fuel for the Cause to replace Disallow. The extra mana might be painful though, and I like being able to counter activated abilities, so it's something I'll have to mull over.
Edric, Spymaster of Trest will definitely make his way in, especially since he lets me play a little more politically (no pun intended). If I can find room for it, I might also add Bident of Thassa to force my opponents to throw themselves at, for instance, an extremely pumped Kalonian Hydra.
Novijen, Heart of Progress looks pretty dank, but I think Zameck Guildmage fills that niche for me. Granted, creature destruction is easier than land destruction, but I can't see him drawing too much hate as it is.
Command Tower will be going in for one of my more expensive non-basics, Rogue's Passage will find a way in somehow and Reliquary Tower... well, I'm gonna have to playtest a bit more to see if my card draw necessitates an unlimited hand size.
Thanks again for the feedback!
