Roon is especially strong with ETB effects. Filling out the deck with things like Frost Titan , Sun Titan , Restoration Angel (for even more blink triggers), Sphinx of Uthuun (crazy card advantage!!), and Terastodon just to name a few. Additionally, Progenitor Mimic is really fun and if you find something better to replicate each turn, just blink and start over! Hope this helped a bit!

Well, I guess it really was too much to ask for a double feature back to back :)

I'll save my deck until next week for the rotation builds unless Apoptosis REALLY wants to face my deck that (is intended) to run fast and race Supreme Verdict for the kill. My current fnm deck until rotation:

RUG Engine (FNM 2nd place) Playtest

Standard weisemanjohn


As for RTR rotation, I came in halfway through its life, and consequently just after Theros was released so I don't really have GOOD memories of it. M14 on the other hand contained my favorite hydra, Kalonian Hydra and for those of you who don't know its potential, read last week's article of it vs Apoptosis. I suppose Progenitor Mimic was fun as well... (Imagine that constantly cloning my hydra!)

HAHA, it is my personal endeavor to make land destruction a thing in modern; but, yes I do wish for Trinisphere , o what a sweet card when the enemy has -2 lands, to become a thing xD

Trinisphere + my Acidic Slime + Progenitor Mimic combo is a win. They are absolutely locked in at that point.

Hmmm, yah I have been wanting lower cost win cons. I will consider Raging Ravine .

The blue was necessary for Progenitor Mimic : which is apart of a super combo of mimic copyng something like Acidic Slime or Avalanche Riders so that I get continual lando while producing tokens. While I had blue I tossed in a couple Mana Leak s which really do a number on some people that arn't expeciting it. Plus, when they have the mana finally, people always put out their precious card first in a hope to survive and win with it. Mana Leak is an assured 2 cost counter due to their lack of lands.

This deck is to attack the total quantity of mana the enemy has rather than just colors. Ghost Quarter just messes with colors, and people usually have a basic land to replace the more important color of the land destroyed. I would rather have Tectonic Edge or Encroaching Wastes for LD lands; but thanks anyways.

Thanks for the ideas :D

Hi, would you be willing to trade your Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite ($30.00), Etched Champion ($7.00), and Progenitor Mimic ($3.00) for my Nissa, Worldwaker ($40.00). All prices used are SCG prices, let me know if we can work something out.

I mean it's a simic commander deck, mono color isn't a problem. I'm not feeling the Roaring Primadox or Species Gorger rout of play. they would be bad early on for me, and I'll generally have a hand full of cards I want to play, undoing something every turn seems silly. I have Conjurer's Closet when I want to repeat ETB, also Deadeye Navigator and potentially Progenitor Mimic . I'm kind of avoiding just targetting lands, I'm mostly in a casual/social playgroup and we kind of frown on (well, I do at least) mass land destruction.

Time Warp would be interesting, especially good if I got it under an Elite Arcanist , but I'm really not /wanting/ absurd "you can't play magic any more" strategies. again, casual group would frown on it and I like to see what everyone else's decks are doing.

Eternal Witness is something I've considered, but never really had a need for and never seen what to remove for it.

thanks for the comment

First off +1 from me I love scion that said I see some room for improvements.
First off 40 is too many lands 36-37 is good replace 3 lands with the 3 moxes Mox Diamond ,Mox Opal and Chrome Mox then if you have or can afford it drop the 4th land for a Mana Crypt and if that's to rich for your blood get a Mana Vault instead.
Next get rid of skittles you don't need to dirty yourself with infect save it as a side board card for when you play that one jackass.... Progenitor Mimic is far better when it's a Scourge of Valkas speaking of scourge of valkas a kicked Rite of Replication is a min 180 damage,now I can't say this enough get you a Splinter Twin omg this thing is the shit! Put it on your commander activate him making him scourge tap copy himself (now a scourge) so there now 2 scourges each triggering dealing 2 damage then next turn make him a Utvara Hellkite tap copy now you have a scourge and 2 utvara in play (scourge deals 3 damage when you tap your commander) attack with scourge and 2 utvara triggers putting out 2 dragons triggering scourge twice for 5 damage each time, now if in that ain't fast enough for you then add in Intruder Alarm so it will go something like this turn 2 intruder alarm turn 3 Channel the Suns scion turn 4 splinter twin make him a scourge of valkas tap put out a scourge ETB triggers twice for 2 damage AND untap due to the intruder alarm then tap AGAIN putting out another scourge being 3 triggering for 3 damage, untaps.....rinse and repeat 1000 times and when you tap you commander for the 1000th time putting out your 1001th scourge of valkas each dealing 1001 damage every thing and every one ever born will be a smoldering corpse lolollollolllololol check out my scion deck A Dragon by any other name (and +1 if you like) Price
