Plasm Capture Discussion
1 week ago
- Sakura-Tribe Scout probably isnt amazing her based on your land count.
- Soul's Fire seems like a win more card that we dont need. Plasm Capture is kinda hard to cast and its hard to have 4 open mana all the time consider cutting it. Growth Spiral we arent running a lot of lands, we have been utilizing creature ramp as a way to get up there. Porbably better cards.
- Chord of Calling is amazing its also getting a reprint so the price might drop.
- Broken Bond and Consign to Dust are ok. Theres better removal they are more spendy. If your running into artifacts or enchantments its not the worst card.
- You have 3 blue mana sources so we either need to cut blue out completely or re think your mana base. There is also like 3 or 4 red cards in the deck in total so the same sort of logic applies.
- The arbor elf utpoia sprawl combo is pretty good, but if you go that route your gonna want 4x of each just to make sure you hit it.
- IF we go mono green we lose two colors, but gain the perfect mana base which helps with consistency. After we make decisions on what colors we are in then we can short out the mana base, and fine tune parts of the deck within the budget.

@xram666: Well, if I was going to use a flying sweeper I would use Squall Line due to it being an instant. As for more counterspells, the only problem I'm encountering there is deck space. To include those I'd need to cut card draw or utility or otherwise something like a Hydra.
I personally like to stick very strongly to the themes of my deck so this deck is very likely to always stay an extremely creature heavy, primarily green deck with as many hydras and things that synergize with hydras and +1/+1 counters as I can fit.
If I do ever cut something for another x-costed counter spell though I'd cut Plasm Capture for Spell Burst specifically to take advantage of my ramp and have a re-usable counterspell + source of tokens.

Mob Rule as a mass gain controll until EoT.
Boneyard Parley as a fact or fiction for graveyatrd creatures, and puts them on the battlefield.
Brutalizer Exarch creature tutor or non-creature tucker.
Gyre Engineer if you want to go infinite with one mana untappers.
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter always is good fun.
Plasm Capture as a more expensive mana drain if you're in simic.
Manifold Insights Gets better the more opponents you have.
Acidic Slime is a well known removal spell in green.

Alright, so right off the bat it's a pretty strong deck with lots of synergy but is lacking big payoffs or interaction which means you'll struggle to do much against combos. As a creature-based deck you're also naturally weak to board wipes and removal.
We can start by improving the mana base: 24 is probably the right number considering the Reefs, and looking at the stats it looks like what you want early are Forests and Mountains. I'd definitely recommend Cinder Glade/Sheltered Thicket due to their having the basic subtypes, so can be utilised alongside both the reveal (Game Trail)) and check (Rootbound Crag/Hinterland Harbor) lands. Unclaimed Territory gives you all three colours but will get slightly worse if you start including more non-creature spells, while Lumbering Falls seems pretty good for you what with being an Elemental and all. Finally there are the shock lands and a strict upgrade to Evolving Wilds in Fabled Passage but they cost money. Ps you want to put "ZEN" in the square brackets after the lands of you want them show up as those lovely original Zendikar ones.
Ok, with that out of the way, we can take a look at the creatures. I maintain that a single Omnath, Locus of Rage is the best top end you can have here, as he'll do silly things with all your lands entering and if anyone tried to wrath your board they'll probably just end up killing themselves! Also two copies of his latest incarnation (Omnath, Locus of the Roil) again gives you some damage to ping around and some card draw. Undergrowth Champion is a beast, and the Cavalier cycle might be worth looking into as well. I think you can easily afford to cut some creatures in order to get other spells in - maybe down to 28? Stuff I'm thinking of would be Temur Battle Rage, Growth Spiral, Neoform, Hadana's Climb Flip, and Retreat to Kazandu.
Finally there's your sideboard, if you want to get into that for the paper version. Here you'd probably want to consider Plasm Capture, Broken Bond, Cindervines, Shapers' Sanctuary, Rhythm of the Wild, 2 Pithing Needles or Sorcerous Spyglasss and maybe a single Chandra, Awakened Inferno.

Bring to Light may be pretty good, Fight to the Death , when revealed, serves to say "wanna make a big attack? ban plan." Flower / Flourish or Safewright Quest is good two-color mana fixing. Putrefy and Mortify are both pretty strong. Thrash / Threat is pretty all right creature removal if Niv is out. I am partial to Archon of Valor's Reach - I just like the card. Armadillo Cloak is def all right if Nivvy's your main wincon. Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation are awesome, as is Hull Breach . I know one of my friends has a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck that would be utterly demolished by a Backlash . Bedevil is absurdly versatile removal. Blightning has a special place in my heart for taking any deck that doesn't know how to draw cards directly out of the game. Mostly a 60 cards, 20 life thing tho. Boros Charm can fizzle a removal spell, or it can make Niv into a really big meat stick. Burning-Tree Shaman and Cindervines are absolute murder for spellslinger decks. Casualties of War might help with those planeswalkers you seem to want to make disappear. Cauldron Haze is an... unconventional way to eat a removal spell. Clan Defiance is pretty all right, though it is an X spell that doesn't just kill a player directly. Countersquall is a good not- Negate , as is Dovin's Veto . Curse of Chains is a cool removal spell. Deathsprout is removal and ramp. A bit costly but Murder and Rampant Growth combined (minus one mana) is worth considering for casuals like me. Debtors' Knell can be a nice finisher.
Defiler of Souls is one of my favorite cards of all time. I just love playing colors and I like turning downsides into upsides.
Despark and Deputy of Detention (not to mention the D-Sphere itself) is pretty good removal. Destructive Revelry is pretty good removal as well. Dimir Doppelganger would fuck a reanimator deck six ways from Sunday. Divinity of Pride is a big, lifelinking threat. Djinn Illuminatus is sneakily very strong. Imagine duplicating all your removal spells as many times as you bother to pay for them. Domri's Ambush is even more good removal (this time creature removal). Dragonlair Spider is just quite good at making tokens. Dreadbore kills two relevant types. Dromoka's Command is sweet removal but not many of its other options are relevant. Dueling Grounds is Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist (or Mirri is Dueling grounds- whatever). Both are awesome pillow fort. Escape to the Wilds draws cards. The color-matters auras from Eventide and Shadowmoor are strong with Niv and also on-theme.
Fossil Find alluded to graveyard order... in a 2008 set... huh.
Identity Crisis just discards your opponent's... everything. Ionize is a pretty all right counterspell. Justice Strike , another pet card of mine, is just very a flavorful removal spell. Mindleech Mass is crazy cool. Mirari's Wake is a really conventionally strong card. Mistmeadow Witch is more expensive and more timely Soulherder (fizzles removal!). Mnemonic Betrayal is just a gem. Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic are both counterspells. Necrogenesis makes tokens and screws up reanimation. Palliation Accord is pretty freaking pillow forty. Pillory of the Sleepless , Anguished Unmaking , and Vindicate are more solid Orzhov removal. Plasm Capture isn't great, I don't think, but it feels like a card that has some wild stories attached to it, don'tcha think? Rakdos's Return seems like another really fun spell. I want to make a RB casual Rack deck. Silumgar's Command is a good card. Thought Erasure is a perfectly suitable discard spell. Trygon Predator is good. Wheel of Sun and Moon ensures that every card in your deck is just a few Niv triggers away.
And BAM, I've looked through every two-color card in Magic. There we go. That's what stood out to me, but I find that many players are more competitive than I am and therefore have different definitions of what a good card is. Feel free to take some or none of my advice. All would likely prove disastrous for your deck- a lot of the cards I suggested were removal.

Wolfpig Thank for the suggestions! Been racking my brain trying to keep this deck my style but run smoothly and was coming up short lol. Well Birds of Paradise , Ponder , and Plasm Capture are on the way. Indomitable Archangel will come out for BoP. Now to figure in the other 2
