Cuts: Drift of Phantasms, Erratic Portal, Fyndhorn Elder, Primal Command, Spawnsire of Ulamog, Words of Wind, Biovisionary, Squall Line, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Everflowing Chalice, Terrain Generator, Glacial Chasm, Nourishing Shoal. None of these really promote the goal of ramping fast, drawing tons, and generally outcasting everybody around you.

cool, Prime Speaker Zegana and Progenitor Mimic can be pretty awesome. also Prophet of Kruphix and Consecrated Sphinx < both of these together get way out of hand

I actually used to run simic evolve in standard... managed to crush the tournaments, so here is what I will recommend. Master Biomancer is very strong and definitely helps with evolve. I'd sub our rapid hybridization for gyre sage though, and perhaps get rid of shambleshark for another win con like Progenitor Mimic because progenitor on hydra really is what makes people concede. I had fun while in standard. Good idea, I have everything but the lands D: don't really want to buy expensive lands either but like I said, great idea. I maybe want to consider taking out some of the weak cards splashing in white for Archangel of Thune and Silverblade Paladin or something with double strike but like I said great idea!

Minor correction @JLenzen: In the red section, the mana cost of Murasa Pyromancer is wrong, also it should be (last line of Tuktuk Scrapper) "wreak havoc"

Cards to look out for for potential strong synergies are imo:Cloning: Infinite Reflection, Clever Impersonator (decently flexible), Mirror Mockery, Parallel Lives, Polymorphous Rush, Progenitor Mimic, Twinflame

Manasink/Finisher: Craterhoof Behemoth, Dragon Throne of Tarkir, Flying Crane Technique, Gavony Township, Heroes' Bane, High Sentinels of Arashin, Kessig Wolf Run, Primal Surge, Savageborn Hydra, Setessan Tactics to solve a stall, Akroma's MemorialHydras obviously are meh when you have the possibility of Chameleon Colossus and Mirror Entity to sink Mana into, but maybe the wind up being somewhat useful in one way or another.

Flexible/CA: Domri Rade, Dromoka's Command, Kolaghan's Command, Mentor of the Meek, Ojutai's Command, Chord of Calling, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Return to the Ranks, Creeping Renaissance, Retribution of the Ancients

Blinks: Conjurer's Closet, Restoration Angel, Sudden Disappearance

Other Neat Effects: Corpsejack Menace, Descendants' Path, Gleam of Authority, Hardened Scales, Illusionist's Bracers, Ivorytusk Fortress, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Master Biomancer, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Ooze Flux, Prophet of Kruphix, Ready / Willing, Ulvenwald Tracker, Vault of the Archangel, Xenagos, the Reveler, Door of Destinies, Kalonian Hydra, Obelisk of Urd, Shield of the Avatar, Strionic Resonator

Maybe also Riders of Gavony as a specific Sideboard Card. I would look into the charms as sideboard options, specifically Rakdos Charm seems like it usually ensures a win against Twin Combo while also providing graveyard and artifact hate.

I love it. Before it left standard, I was planning on making a ramp deck with Stuffy + Progenitor Mimic but never got around to it.
As for this, how about Lightmine Field? It can stop attacks and help you get damage through.

new changes made:

took out: 1x Zameck Guildmage and 1x Vorel of the Hull Clade because- both are good Cards but for each it is pure Horror to draw both. - they are great but are not my main Focus with creatures

took in: 1x Capsize and 1x Nature's Claim because- capsize is a great Card, even without using buyback. tried it in case of Snap and it works fine.- NC is good for fast artifact/enchantment removal and this way i dont Need to fire my Beast Within for those sort of spells and can Focus on creatures and planeswalkers


1 vs 1 against b/w orzhov assassin deck:

what i have learned:b/w in this art is one of the worst matchups for this deck. so much creature-hate produced with pure field presence is very hard. if yu dont draw exactly what you Need, all your creatures get Gideon's Lawkeeper + Royal Assassin EOT every round. well, because of that it seems important to reach Plaxcaster Frogling as soon as possible.

oh, we have another match i had played:

3 Person chaos round (each vs. each) against b/w assassin deck and g/w token army deck

Thanks SirFowler! I think that Deadeye Navigatorfits best in a blink deck where the goal is to abuse the "enters the battlefield trigger as much as possible (Brass Herald has a home there too). But with that said, I don't think it has a place in this build.

But if you want to abuse that mechanic, go talk to Progenitor Mimic ;-)
