Definitely Garruk, Caller of Beasts and Chromatic Lantern . Might want to consider Hornet Queen because it does completely not okay things with Progenitor Mimic . Jalira, Master Polymorphist could be interesting too

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 Price
