Sage of Hours Discussion

GenericAperson on Eutropia's Enchantments

1 week ago

Currently looking at Sage of Hours as an addition to the deck, to cement the Simic Ascendancy win condition even further. The card itself creates an infinite combo with Eutropia, Simic Ascendancy and either Shimmering Wings or Whip Silk, whereby you keep casting and bouncing Wings or Silk on the Sage and putting further counters on the Sage, thereby adding counters to Simic Ascendancy. In fact, in some ways Eutropia isn't needed, just the Ascendancy, the Sage and the bounce enchantments.

multimedia on Counters - Atraxa

1 month ago

Hey, Evolutionary Escalation is an underrated card for counter strategies. Escalation goes well Atraxa's vigilance. With Escalation she will rarely not be the biggest creature on the battlefield attacking and defending. Sage of Hours is a powerful creature with counter strategies and with Escalation as well as Forgotten Ancient and The Ozolith. Sage combos with Ezuri, Claw of Progress with five experience counters for infinite turns.

I think you can afford to cut some basic Forests and Islands for dual lands that can ETB untapped: Command Tower, City of Brass, Llanowar Wastes, Yavimaya Coast, Brushland, Twilight Mire, Flooded Grove, Wooded Bastion. Nature's Lore, Wood Elves and Farseek are upgrades for Cultivate since you have Triome and Shock lands.

Good luck with your deck.

First off, I like this deck. it has some of my favorite things, like elves, and +1/+1 counters. Second off, I find it funny that you have expensive cards like Doubling Season bumping elbows with a Druid of the Cowl.

I don't really know how to do transitions well, so here are my suggestions: Sage of Hours, Herald of Secret Streams, Simic Ascendancy, Spark Double, Blighted Agent, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Cultivator of Blades, Pir/Toothy, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Prime Speaker Zegana, Master Biomancer, Mycoloth, Solidarity of Heroes, Fable of Wolf and Owl, Wild Beastmaster, and/or Gyre Sage. Also, I noticed that you were running 5 color lands (Lands that produce any color mana. I feel you should replace them with basics/other duals.

I hope this helps!

Last_Laugh on Ghave, Guru of Tokens

3 months ago

I used to play Ghave in a similar fashion but found myself being targeted nonstop thanks to Ghave's reputation. If that ever becomes a problem, consider Reyhan, Last of the Abzan + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker at the helm instead to help float under the radar.

Reyhan's ability to save counters really ups the versatility of a counters deck. Blue also gives access to a few fun cards like Deepglow Skate, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Herald of Secret Streams, Sage of Hours, Bred for the Hunt, Master Biomancer, and Spark Double.
