Destroy target creature. It can't be regenerated. That creature's controller puts a 3/3 green Ape creature token into play.

Sicohippy on Olivia Voldaren, Queen of the Damned

Definitely add Homeward Path, you never know when having opponent's creatures on the battlefield might end up backfiring for you.

I love this deck, and I wanna help with it, maybe consider adding Champion's Helm and Swiftfoot Boots. Given Olivia's ability, you absolutely don't wanna lose control of her if you can help it, be it through dying, another control effect like Bribery, or death.

I would suggest searching for more ways to stop her from being Pongify'd or Hero's Downfalled.

Also, EDH is a format where there's almost always going to be somebody at the table in the same colour scheme as you are (think that its a multiplayer format where is arguably the 2nd strongest colour, and most players will have 2,3, or 4 colour schemes), so I'd also suggest going for the classic Murder instead of Doom Blade. Yeah it costs another , but it'll save your skin when you've got an unblockable Volrath the Fallen on your hands, or when something like Phage the Untouchable comes to get you.

You don't have to remove Doom Blade if you don't want, but in EDH I've never been a fan of it. Its more of a modern side-board card in my eyes.

So if you are looking to cut counterspells, Dissipate and Undermine are by far the best candidates to be removed, with sSummary Dismissal having some drawbacks. Aside from wanting to advise Annul, there are a few things you may want to check out for those extra spots. While I hate to say it, Paradox Engine is absurd with nekusar, allowing you to repeatably wheel over and over. On the same vein, Dual Casting allows you to double your wheels, and has a disgusting interaction with paradox engine and say Vedalken Orrery. On a side note, Unlicensed Disintegration may be able to go for Pongify or Rapid Hybridization

Cheers!

Saw this on Reddit. Looks like a fun deck! Oona is particularly spicy. :)

Cards I think are your flex spots:
Royal Assassin
Mind Sculpt - 1v1 card
Traumatize - 1v1 card
Tragic Slip - Conditional removal
Sudden Spoiling - Temporary 1 to 1 effect

More cards to consider:
Solemn Simulacrum - Ramp, Draw
Beacon of Unrest - Reanimate
Ponder - Draw, Deck Manipulation
Brainstorm - Draw, Deck Manipulation
Preordain - Draw, Deck Manipulation
Windfall - Draw, Mill
Toxic Deluge - Board Wipe
Decree of Pain - Board Wipe, Draw
Rite of Replication - Army in a can
Sire of Stagnation - Draw, Mill
Rapid Hybridization - Unconditional removal
Pongify - Unconditional removal

Would welcome your feedback as you keep playing this. My deck is brand spanking new too:Lazav Mirrors and Thievery

Let me know what you think.

Things to Drop

Instants

Brainstorm - one time not enough. Consider Sensei's Divining Top, Pongify/Rapid Hybridization - Ok. Consider Path to Exile and Stasis Snare

Sorceries

Potentially getting to the point of too many sweepers, but I think its ok.

Creatures

Archangel of Tithes - Just ok., Filigree Familiar - Not enough, Heliod, God of the Sun - Really not that great, Palisade Giant - Probably better served as another enchantment

Enchantments

Mind Unbound - Consider the fact that it isnt a may ability

Planeswalkers

Dovin Baan - Really not that great

Things to Consider

Sol Ring!!!!, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Sun Titan, Blind Obedience - Technically just a white color identity, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Luminarch Ascension, Land Tax, Frozen AEther, Chromatic Lantern, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Cryptic Command, Capsize!!!, Forbid, MindStone, Commander's Sphere, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, AEtherize, Mystic Confluence, Quarantine Field, Austere Command, Entreat the Angels, Mystic Remora, Thassa, God of the Sea, Jace, Architect of Thought, Venser, Shaper Savant

I'm digging the Curse of the Swine, but I do like the instant speed of Pongify, I'll see what I can do to make it work.

Thassa helps with land drops, but I do like the idea of adding some utility lands.

I really like the style of this build. It looks like a blast to play!

I have one very close. Check it out and let me know what you think?

It's still new and I was wondering:Why Preordain over Ponder?Do you ever crave more ramp?

Here are some cards I thought would be cool to think about:
Solemn Simulacrum
Eternal Dominion
Altar of the Brood
Myriad Landscape
Brainstorm
Pongify

KingOfZendikar I could definitely see those cards working, but I do have a little to say for each of them:

Muddle the Mixture has a CMC of 2, so you could only search for something with CMC 2... Biovisionary has a CMC 3 so...

As for Collected Company, Phyrexian Metamorph, and Phantasmal Image: they are all wonderful cards that work marvelously in theory, are too expensive: the deck is a budget deck, after all.

Birds of Paradise and Wayfarer's Bauble are good ramp, but the average CMC is 4 for the deck, so I don't really see a good reason to have ramp.

As for Beast Within and Pongify, those are actually pretty solid removal cards that I will put in the sideboard.

Don't get me wrong, except for Muddle the Mixture mix-up, these are pretty solid recommendations that I would consider if I wanted to improve efficiency while greatly improving the price tag. I'll put your suggestions in the maybe-board.

I highly recommend Muddle the Mixture. You can use this card to search up your Biovisionary. I would add in 4 Collected Companys and swap Mercurial Pretender for Phyrexian Metamorph and swap Clone for Phantasmal Image. Some ramp would do good here, maybe Birds of Paradise or Wayfarer's Bauble. Simic Charm could be good protection and Beast Within or Pongify for removal. Over all great deck!
