Sage of Shaila's Claim Discussion

You can probably replace Servant of the Conduit with Sage of Shaila's Claim as it nets you more energy overall. The servant is a decent mana dork, but seems a bit unnecessary given your mana fixing.

OK, here we go. I've got a lot of feedback for this deck.

First of all, it's REALLY fun to play.

I've always loved mucking around with

Be aware that this is quite "durdly". Make sure you play it at a reasonable pace: not so slow that you run out of time to complete a match, not so fast that your Opponent doesn't know what is going on.

You would run 20 lands in an EXTREMELY aggressive deck. This is not one of those decks.

I suggest you add 3x Attune with Aether to the mix which sort of acts like a land, colour fixes, and gives you extra

3x Aether Hub would also help this deck with colour fixing. Put them in and remove the Evolving Wilds.

In my opinion Nature's Way would be better than Haze of Pollen. Killing a key Creature will help to stall longer than preventing damage for just one turn.

I would like to see Appetite for the Unnatural in the Sideboard, because it is so versatile. It can get rid of Gearhulks, Liliana's Mastery, etc.

I like Supreme Will better than Metallic Rebuke. Same price for a less conditional card with two modes.

I would rather see Sage of Shaila's Claim than Scythe Leopard. With Evolving Wilds coming out the Leopard won't be as effective, and the Sage fits your theme better.

It also acts a little bit like Haze of Pollen in that you now have a chump blocker that you don't care about losing.

It works really well with Bristling Hydra

Aethersquall Ancient is so good that I would add another. I would take out one Thriving Turtle for it, as that card is a bit hit and miss.

I like the Fabrication Module very much in this deck, but the other modules are a bit meh. You don't want too many Artifacts. I would add a Fabrication Module and take the other ones out.

I would rather see a counter spell than Gift of Tusks. Much better to completely stop a Creature resolving than nerf it for one turn, or boost one of your Creatures. Again, the card is a bit too situational.

Here is a suggested upgrade:

3x Aether Theorist
3x Aethersquall Ancient
3x Bristling Hydra
4x Greenbelt Rampager
4x Longtusk Cub
3x Sage of Shaila's Claim
3x Thriving Turtle

3x Fabrication Module

2x Botanical Sanctum
3x Aether Hub
7x Forest
6x Island
2x Lumbering Falls

4x Blossoming Defense
1x Essence Scatter
2x Disallow OR Cancel
2x Nature's Way
3x Attune with Aether

This deck has a stronger purpose now - get as many as possible and use them to overwhelm the enemy.

I don't like Containment Membrane in the Sideboard. It doesn't tap the Creature, so if it's big enough they can just use it as a blocker.

Against a Control deck running Torrential Gearhulk it is next to useless.

SIDEBOARD

2x Cartouche of Strength
2x Disallow OR Cancel
3x Essence Scatter
2x Negate (brilliant against Planeswalkers)
2x Plummet
2x Supreme Will
2x Appetite for the Unnatural

You'll have to playtest any changes to see how they work.

If you update the deck tag me in these Comments and I'll take another look at it.

If you are still working on this deck, there are a few cards that stand out as easy replacements. Glint Nest Crane doesn't do anything in this deck. You have only 6 total artifacts, so most of the time it is just going to whiff. If you want a tutor for your pummeler, Trophy Mage is a guaranteed way to get the card you want.

Thriving Turtle and Sage of Shaila's Claim are budget cards that can be replaced by something more effective. Shielded Aether Thief is simply a better version of Thriving Turtle. Sage of Shaila's Claim can be replaced by pretty much anything that generates energy. Whirler Virtuoso or Rogue Refiner would be my top picks. I would also cut Woodweaver's Puzzleknot. It is a decent card, but in an aggro/ combo deck like this it really doesn't do much.

You should also look into adding some better options for giving your creatures trample. Invigorated Rampage and Built to Smash are both good options for pumping your pummeler and giving it trample. More importantly, they are instant speed, which means you can also use them as combat tricks.

One final note. If you really want to go back to 2 color, I would go Izzet instead of Simic. U/R offers a lot better options for an aggressive combo deck than U/G does.

So I just realized a thing, you're missing 5 cards, in MTG you generally need a minimum 60 card deck, and unless you're making some odd deck you generally don't want more than 60 cards because statistics.

that being said i would do as follows:

Remove:

2x Dynavolt Tower

3x Attune with Aether

Add:

4x Animation Module

1x Consulate Turret

2x Decoction Module

1x Fabrication Module

1x Sage of Shaila's Claim

1x Servant of the Conduit or Highspire Infusion

Hey Inexist93, you asked me at Energy Elves to take a look at your deck. It looks good, but your ramping into the wrong creature :) +1

Consider playing Aetherwind Basker in place of Scaled Behemoth. Basker has much more synergy with your strategy of energy and filling the battlefield with Elves. The synergy between Basker and Bristling Hydra is nuts. You can get Hydra on the battlefield before Basker even as fast as turn three and then really benefit from the all the energy that Basker can make when it later on enters play to pump Hydra. Hydra might be the best energy sink to use in Standard and being able to play it turn three from either Servant of the Conduit or Druid of the Cowl is very good. I would play 3-4x Hydra in place of 3x Bounty of the Luxa and 1x Glimmer of Genius.

I think you're better off using Elves and other creatures as your ramp and not playing Bounty or moving it to the sideboard because it's just too slow it doesn't even ramp you the turn after it's been in play, you first have to draw a card and then the next turn you can use it to ramp. Because of the slow ramp I think Rishkar, Peema Renegade is a better ramp option and he's an Elf.

I'm not a fan of Architect of the Untamed even though she's an Elf consider replacing her with Rogue Refiner. Refiner is one of the best energy cards in Standard and he's Simic colors.

Until he rotates Sylvan Advocate is one of the best Elves and is much better than Sage of Shaila's Claim. Advocate has nice synergy with Rishkar, Peema Renegade. The two together can be fantastic ramp. Sage is fine for budget/rotation reasons because she can also be used as ramp with Rishkar.

Consider adding 2-4x Lumbering Falls as creature lands if you're in colors for them they're very good.

You're going to need some removal main deck I recommend Baral's Expertise. Baral's can be pseudo removal, bounce, while at the same time let you play just about any card other than Basker for free.

I'm happy to help, if you would like further help let me know.

Good luck with your deck

frankly, just build it around Electrostatic Pummeler, because you're gonna be able to just gain a bunch of energy, larger than life it combined with any other +x/+x counters. I had 9 energy from casting 2 Electrostatic Pummelers and a Sage of Shaila's Claim, used a Larger Than Life and 2 Blossoming Defense, gaining +8/+8, so it was a 9/9, spent 3 energy to make it a 18/18. 3 more for a 36/36, then the last 3 for a 72/72... so yeah. then you just need trample so they don't block with a 1/1, but there are multiple spells in here that do that, so just make a small CMC deck, but keep the quantity of mana so you can cast multiple buff spells per turn.

WabbaWabbaFlamDoobily,
Thanks for the kudos! It feels like Servant of the Conduit is a must though ... she brings a versatility to the deck that no other mana dork does. She can Ramp of course, but she also gains Energy counters and can Attack/Block like a Bear. There are better options for all of those individually (e.g., I like Channeler Initiate as a dork, Sage of Shaila's Claim for Energy, and Harsh Mentor or maybe Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip as a Bear). But Servant can do all of those pretty good.

Thank you again!
