Simic Ascendancy Discussion

Kjartan on Merfolk BG counters - Card ideas?

2 days ago

I don't think you want 4 Simic Ascendancy. They're redundant in multiples.

Hangarback Walker, Walking Ballista and Stonecoil Serpent are all good options... The first 2 are very expensive, though.

Did you get around to making that druid deck?

BlotBokt on Simic +1/+1 enchantmetn?

Skyler1776 Thanks for commenting. Simic Ascendancy seemed a bit slow when I first had it in the deck and took the place of cards that felt like they had a bit more utility. However, I was planning on having a few copies in the sideboard for potentially longer games. Most of the games I'm playing right now are on Arena, and I'll definitely test it again once I get some more rare wildcards.

This deck isn't standard-legal with Enter the Unknown , Jadelight Ranger , and Pelakka Wurm .

Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi gets you nine +1/+1 counters. Simic Ascendancy gets you an alternate win-con (has helped me a lot when I can't get through my opponent's board), and Evolution Sage is just awesome, particularly with Fabled Passage . Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter is an interesting thing to put in the deck, since it gives +1/+1s and some ramp when you need it.

Jace, Arcane Strategist isn't really good, particularly for a six-mana planeswalker (same with Jace's Ruse ). Spark Double is too expensive for the effect, and I don't really think Growth Spiral fits with the gameplan here.

Bout on Tribal Merfolk (G/U) Brawl & Pioneer

Pioneer & Brawl - Tribal Merfolk (G/U)

Pretty much based on Ixalan block. Fast casting with draw, evasion and alternate win condition via Simic Ascendancy

Not sure it will be fun for casual chaos multiplayer as it lack a reset button and might be hard to recover from a wipe.

Thank you so much for your comment and suggestions swaretappedout!! This is really helpful. I had watched that video you linked and it's really good, it brought up some concerns about what I've currently build. I've been playtesting it via tappedout and I really agree that my ramping and especially my card draw engines need fixing. I'll invest in some of those more expensive lands after Christmas I think :P Totally agree on removing The Chain Veil , it was just a cool card I had lying around and I have a few planeswalkers in the deck. My meta is mostly casual, playing with some friends. I hadn't played MTG in a while and this will be my first shot at building a commander deck :D I really need to stick more to that video guide you listed and put it into action.

Cards I'm waiting for at the moment to arrive: 1x Freed from the Real 1x Hadana's Climb  Flip 1x Hydroid Krasis 1x Incubation Druid 1x Momir Vig, Simic Visionary 1x Simic Ascendancy 1x Simic Growth Chamber 1x Simic Signet 1x The Great Henge 1x Utopia Sprawl

Thanks again!

Sorin_Markov_1947 I was unsure about how Gargos, Vicious Watcher 's ability worked and I originally didn't have them in there, but I was told at FNM he would give 4 free +1+1 and I haven't had an oppurtunity to play it since being told that so they could have been wrong. Incubation Druid I may also add for more ramp same with Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter . I don't really like Simic Ascendancy all that much at least in main board but it may be a decent Sideboard.

It is worth noting that the only creature that Gargos, Vicious Watcher 's cost-reduction ability works on is Bioessence Hydra . It doesn't work on any of the costs.

I think you could change this up a little to get Incubation Druid in here as ramp. Maybe add Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , or even Simic Ascendancy to get the counters, and it has some synergy with your -costed hydras, too.
