Plasm Capture Discussion
1 day ago
Ok. You definitely need more lands. 35 at the minimum, but I recommend 38. So you need to take out a lot of cards. Think about what you're going for. A +1/+1 counter strategy? Synergy? Lots of little creatures? Then start taking out cards that don't fit the key themes you want in your deck. I know its hard, but it'll make the deck much better. For example, if you want +1/+1 counters and synergy with those, then Bident of Thassa and Bounty of the Luxa might not be that good. What i might do is just make a list of what IN MY OPINION is jank and should go. Take it with a grain of salt if you want, but its probably for the best (if you want the reasoning behind any of these please ask me, I can't write it down for every card). Animation Module, Bident of Thassa, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Snakeform, Plasm Capture, Negate, Mirror Match, Cobra Trap, Bounty of the Luxa, From Beyond, Urban Evolution, Whirler Rogue, Viridian Corrupter, Thelonite Hermit, Patagia Viper, Altered Ego, Overrun. All those I would Definitely take out and replace with lands, then there are a bunch more which I could see the value, and they could be really cool, but I ultimately would have to cut. These are cards like Forgotten Ancient, Managorger Hydra and Kalonian Hydra. But I would test these cards before cutting them. You also have A LOT of ramp. Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Elvish Mystic ect. Maybe a little less ramp? I dunno, but these are my thoughts.

Favorite Shard: Grixis
Manipulative, cruel, powerful. Edicts, burn, bounce, counterspells, everything control can be found here, and with a handful of evasive, aggressive creatures to swoop in with once you've established control of the board, or you can play the slow-burn game with effects like Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Put your opponent(s) on a clock and deny them the ability to stop it. Plus their ability to run some of the meanest creatures in the form of things like Kederekt Creeper, Baleful Strix, Master of Cruelties, etc. So much fun to be had.
Favorite Wedge: Abzan
Relentless power. I love Abzan because of its resilience, strength, and versatility. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of Abzan specific cards, but being able to run things like Animate Dead, Sun Titan, Brave the Sands, alongside gigantic green creatures like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Ghoultree, Avatar of Might, etc is just incredible. The incredible suite of removal that B/W brings to the table in the form of Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, etc, combined with the might of Green creatures, further compounded by the volume of powerful reanimation effects these colors all have, builds a powerful, versatile deck that just never gives up. I've run Abzan decks that have had their most crucial cards hit with Slaughter Games type effects, and they still didn't stop, didn't slow down, and pulled out a win.
Favorite Allied Guild: Rakdos
Rakdos just knows how to throw a party. Every time I've built Rakdos I end up having fun, win or lose. Chaotic game-changers like Everlasting Torment, Havoc Festival, and Sire Of Insanity just bring a lot of shenanigans to the table that people just aren't prepared to deal with. Terminate is one of the kings of removal. Cards like Backlash, Delirium, and Rakdos Charm punish a variety of opposing playstyles. The individual colors also contribute a lot to your ability to handle creatures, and create even more chaos. Endless Whispers, Scrambleverse, you name it.
I cannot wait to get my hands on Last One Standing.
Favorite Enemy Guild: Simic
This one is simple, these two colors compliment each other so well it's insane. There is almost nothing that exists in this game that Simic cannot do. Green's weakness is its inability to manipulate the board much without combat. Blue's weakness is in its board presence and creatures. They are ideal together. Ramp, removal, aggro, counterspells, creature control, resilience. Simic has all its bases covered, and with just two colors. Mystic Snake, Trygon Predator, Kiora's Follower, Plasm Capture, Voidslime, Simic Charm, these cards are amazing, and that's without getting into the mono-color cards.
I'd also like to throw out some love for "Growth", the combination. The only pure Growth cards we have thus far are Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, and Witch-Maw Nephilim, but boy what cards they are. But the colors themselves are awesome together. G/U's flexibility, W/B's removal, much less other multicolor synergies, access to Abzan cards, Sultai cards, Esper cards. Obviously the mana base gets complicated fast, and it can be hard to handle, but if it works, it works.

I'm just gonna pretend I know what Kiki Pod is (I have no idea, I just play casual modern with my friends with the cards I have). Anywho, I'll give it a shot.
And last, but definitly not least, Frozen AEther a funny card that can seriously piss people off.
I seriously had no idea what to suggest, so I just spouted stuff off off of the top of my head based on what I saw. (I think I have an idea what Kiki Pod is now and it's. . . Interesting)

I've run a Biovisionary wincon deck in EDH and modern deck and let me tell you, you are going to need some counter spells. It's the only thing that will reliably protect you from boardwipe, removal, and a lot of other hateful things. Get Mystic Snake, Counterspell, Dissolve maybe Plasm Capture (extra mana!). Also, Prophet of Kruphix is banned (RIP, my beloved.) You can replace it with Seedborn Muse and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, add Alchemist's Refuge, and Leyline of Anticipation. You're also going to want more mana ramp and card draw. I suggest fetch land creatures like Sakura-Tribe Elder and others like it because you want Momir triggers as often as possible. A late game rampant growth or cultivate is sad when you are searching for answers. Also, relying on non-land permanents like mana dorks and artifacts can leave you high and dry if the board gets wiped, so avoid them. If you must though, consider defender ramp like Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement. They can be explosive with all the copy you have.
Kruphix, God of Horizons is awesome in a deck like this, coupled with Seedborn Muse and Rite of Replication? You'll have everything you need to win and have mana left for a counterspell. Consider tutors like Mystical Tutor to get what you need. But I find massive card draw will help you get there. Reliquary Tower and Library of Leng couldn't hurt either.
Strategically, my basic advice is that the clone approach is slow and will antagonize your opponents as the countdown begins. They'll wipe or remove as soon as they can and beat your face in the process. Making it all happen at once is your best bet. Counters, card draw, mana ramp, flash and untap will help win the game with Biovisionary consistently.
Sorry for the mouthful! Nice to see someone running a similar deck to me. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks for the comment. It's not often that you can actually get more than one creature out with this deck. Often youre just getting one on 4th or 5th round after playing a successful Plasm Capture, so it doesnt matter. On the odd time i have a Stormtide Leviathan and say a Kederekt Leviathan also, ill just play stormtide after ive played kederekt, bounced the board, and attacked once on the next turn. Not a super synergistic deck, but i wanted a sea monster deck and there wasnt alot of options.

I would definitely up the mana base to 35-36 lands, 36 is what usually works best in my opinion.
I've noticed a few Counterspells, and these are some I really love: Render Silent, Insidious Will, Cryptic Command, and Plasm Capture. There's also Mana Drain and OG Counterspell if you are willing to pay.
I've got my own Arcades deck if you want to take a look. One of my best decks I've made, it operates around Aggro-control. Basically you just don't let your opponents play stuff and swing in with some powerful walls.
