Simic Charm Discussion

Heya. So, don't listen to The Devicer on the Bant base.
As a BANT player, I've fiddled with a Bant Delver already, and found some trouble.
I'd also recommend Simic Charm somewhere. I think it is progressively better than Rootborn Defenses, as most kill spells are target wise (and many of the spells you'll face in the meta are actually exilers). If Simic Charm doesn't sound fun to you, Gods Willing will also be very effective (and will also give you a nice Scry).

i play a simic deck myself and i love the playstyle. i think you need some core cards like Sol Ring and Lightning Greaves, you could also try adding Everflowing Chalice which with proliferate can generate a lot of mana. Doubling Season is a must, Primal Vigor as well, Beastmaster Ascension is an amazing card as well, another target to proliferate and pumps your infect. and i would suggest some more counter spells, Voidslime , Stifle, Counterspell and other good blue counterspells. also Simic Charm great as well, lets you protect your pump your board. Also to give your board trample for that all important infect damage Overwhelming Stampede

So recently me and my two friends sat down to play a game of commander. I was using my The Mimeoplasm Dack, my friend John was using his Vorel of the Hull Clade deck, and my other friend Kris was using John's Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck. The game mainly consisted of John and Kris teaming up on me the entire game, until the end.
I mill Leveler and Laboratory Maniac into my graveyard, and use The Mimeoplasm as a copy of Lab. Maniac and Animate Dead as a copy of Leveler, removing my library from the game. However, I'm at 1 life. I have 6 blockers, and John has 5 viable attackers. Also, if John doesn't kill me, I win by Kris' Master of the Feast Trigger. John casts Roil Elemental to steal my Creakwood Liege, and uses Simic Charm to bounce one of my worm tokens, and attacks me for lethal. That still leaves Kris.
Kris is at 25, and John is at 23. Kris has Spiteful Visions and Nekusar out, and John has Clone as a copy of Nekusar, as well as a few other creatures. Feeling safe, John attacks Kris for a bit of damage. During Kris's turn, Kris uses Damnable Pact for 8, Dealing John 24 damage.

You really use Gigantomancer?! Haha that is an auto +1 xD
I was trying to build around him too, feel free to check it out for ideas: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/gigantomancer-wins-with-spawnwrithe/
Here is a nice little trick: Mirrorweave! It is an instant that you can use to copy your Biovisionary (be careful, because ALL creatures become BV, including the ones of your opponent. But if you use the spell during the opponents turn, the effect will first trigger for you and only after for him and so you win first. Please don't ask me to state the rule here, I just know it works like that ). You can also use Mirrorweave to cast it onto a 0/0 creature that has +1/+1 counters on it. That would kill all other creatures and only creatures with counters survive. Blue/green has quite a number of such cretures to chose from. your Elvish Archdruid would also save all your elves to get killed by that. Most of the times, opponents get caught off guard by this.
Maybe Voidslime goes beyond your budget but it really works amazingly!
Simic Charm is in my eyes quite unerestimated, but it offers so many options! You can buff, you can defend all your PERMANENTS, you can return an annoying creature to its owner's hand or save your own by taking one back to your hand - and this is good for all your creature skills that trigger when entering the battlefield.
My last idea is Biomass Mutation, which is like a spontanious mass Gigantomancer! you have enough mana anyways and all your creatures are rather small.. so it might be worth put it in at least for the sideboard.
Hope I could help a bit.

I think you could do better than the current mana ramp theme you have. I mean Leigh in tapping dudes is ok but most of you have a lot of mana dorks and only 11 instants. So that doesn't drop much for you. And since most of your creatures are single colored he only gives them +1/+1. Also I don't think you should even bother dreaming about playing world spine worm. Slagwurm is a bit hard at 7 let alone 11.
I'd suggest going with a more tempo oriented build.
T3 you drop serious threats or you play minor ones with counter spell backup. Goyf is great but pricy. Cards like Kalonian Tusker or Avatar of the Resolute work as great efficient beaters. You could also go with Icefeather Aven to come in with evasion.
Cards like Simic Charm provide you with lots of versatility.
Since you are a bit slower and probably will have a few mana ramp cards. Things like Sturdy Hatchling are easily protectable beaters.
Sagu Mauler can be a strong resilient late game card but there are probably better options.
The exact cards I mention are mostly rough suggestions. I didn't have time to look up the best cards for every scenario I listed but I think you get the point.
Good luck with your deck.
