Simic Ascendancy Discussion

Odysseus_97 on Kumena will turn you into Simic Slaw

2 weeks ago

Hi Zalen

Welcome to Commander, I hope you will enjoy the format and I am glad that the deck could help you out :)

I haven't considered it, and i am actually up in the air about using it, 6 mana for 6 +1/+1 counters are not that efficient, and the +1/+1 counter theme is a minor theme. The inclusion of Simic Ascendancy is mostly to have a fun win con that can take focus off the growing evasive merfolk army.

Spell Swindle is in my opinion the best budget Mana Drain out there, with a nice bonus of being able to distribute the mana any way you want. Another option is Plasm Capture , but the fixing can be problematic. The biggest issue with these are having to hold up 4 or 5 mana, and sometimes it is not even needed to counter a spell and then you "wasted" a quite large amount of mana. So maybe it would be more efficient running a lesser costed one, like Counterspell or Arcane Denial and then a standard ramp spell like Cultivate / Kodama's Reach or Harvest Season which has done some work when it was cast at the right moment.

In regards to your counterspells, you are definitely on the right path choosing your counterspells, as being able to counter any type of spell is very important in singleton. Ordinary Counterspell would be a strict upgrade to Cancel and you should be able to get one of those from the random boxes at a LGS quite cheap. Negate is quite good, especially if you can counter a boardwipe, when your board is quite large :) Thought Collapse is just a strictly better Cancel .

For a budget the selection looks quite nice, some upgraded versions could be: Counterspell , Arcane Denial and Swan Song .

I will take a look at your deck when i get the time, and leave a comment on your page.

I am in the middle of reworking all of my commander decks, and kumena is coming up, so in the coming month or 2 you might see a larger swap in the deck on the page.

ebonyks your deck look great, when I've started this deck I want to make a stax deck but I found out it was more fun mixing all the planeswalker and discovering new interaction between all of them. I need to be honest, Jace, Cunning Castaway seem better than I think.

PANDABOMB on Ishai's and Reyhan's Ascension (Simic Ascendancy)

3 weeks ago

Thank you so much for the great advice and you're totally right, I seemed to have missed one of Reyhan's most powerful aspects.

However, when I sat down to make this deck I started with one card: Simic Ascendancy . I really wanted a deck that won with that specific win condition. So if you take a second look at my deck, based on the high number of tutors and 2 cmc transmutations, you can see how my deck revolves around this silly enchantment.

I stumbled upon the "When a creature enters the battlefield put a +1/+1 counter on it" and how it combos really well with Persist creatures, and now that's the deck's subtheme. It uses Reyhan and some other pieces to get these Persist sac loops started which actually give the deck a lot of options from there.

Infinite combos can be sorta degenerate however, so when I get tired of that, I definitely will have to give this Legend Rule Commander damage version a shot. Thanks for the advice, I've already begun to read over your deck.

LadyZ on All for One (Experiment Kraj)

I'd definitely add Horseshoe Crab , it's a good way to untap Kraj repeatedly. Illusionist's Bracers would help you go infinite more easily, and Rings of Brighthearth is another good option if it's in your price range. And why not throw in Simic Ascendancy for an alternate win con?

Just keep in mind, Kraj only gets activated abilities, so it won't get the ability of Soulblade Djinn for example.

Strength of the Tajuru , Gyre Sage , Gilder Bairn

Maybe a couple more creature with graft? I love the Isochron Scepter so i'd try to trade out a few sorcery/instants that don't work with the scepter and put in cards that do work with it.

If you want to win with Simic Ascendancy you can tutor for it with Muddle the Mixture

He isn't a hydra but Animar, Soul of Elements would really work as the commander of this kind of deck. Animar naturally synergies with X costed hydras and you get access to Hydroid Krasis . Simic Ascendancy could also function as a secondary wincon.
