Novijen, Heart of Progress Discussion

Hi! Like the coding and love the art in the background, but it does make the comments hard see :)

That said, here are some suggestions!

Triumph of the Hordes Will give you a sneaky one shot kill.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary value card draw

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip budget Gaea's Cradle :)

Your mana base could use some work. Cut the groves, guildgate, woodland stream, and a few basics.

Add in Yavimaya Coast, Hinterland Harbor, Breeding Pool, Unclaimed Territory, Novijen, Heart of Progress, Temple of the False God.

Then throw in a Simic Signet and you'll be set!

Hope some of this helps! Good luck!

If you want to play with counters, you can give Novijen, Heart of Progress a try, it's cheap, hard to remove, and can still give you mana if you need it. Since it puts +1/+1 counters, it can also make Herald of Secret Streams a bit more useful.

Natural State shouldn't be in your mainboard, it's too situational. Not all decks run artifacts or enchantments so it won't always get use. Just add it to your sideboard and if your friends who play like using artifacts or enchantments, keep it in the deck, but it should be a sideboard card.

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.

Sage of Fables, Zameck Guildmage, or Novijen Sages might be worth it if you need more funky card draw, and Spike Weaver might be good if you are slower and need a fog effect.

On the other hand, if you wanna go fast, I think a great finisher could be Champion of Lambholt. Retribution of the Ancients is also an amazing way to pick off creatures for one mana.

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 splash white, you could play Gavony Township... or the somewhat harder-to-use Novijen, Heart of Progress without splash.
