Simic Charm Discussion
1 week ago
Nice build there. My suggestions: Take out the Hydroforms and replace them with Simic Charms. Yes, Hydroform does make flying, but Simic Charm is much more adaptable, especially for an aggro/control build - bounce their big creatures to not only stop them winning but also to pave the way for your aggro, make your creatures bigger and stop the burn. I would also reccommend taking out Frilled Oculus, because if you want aggro there are creatures you can pump more than once a turn.Berserk is a good card if you can deal lethal damage with it. If you want aggro, I would recommend taking out some of the evolve creatures - they are for the long game as you play them but they don't get big until much later on, unless you are playing larger creatures every turn or have a big token combo on. Also on the aggro, if you want to go full on, take out all the evolve and control aspects and put in things like mutagenic growth and prdator's strike. Just look at the infect decks (like mine below) for some nice pump spells. Since you don't care about legality (although it works much better for infect), Invigorate is good for that little extra damage. On top of the pump spells, run Wild Defiance to really get the damage racking up. If you are looking for more control, run some walls (e.g. Fog Bank and Glacial Wall) to trigger evolve. For card advantage or pseudo-hexproof run Monastery Siege and Pore Over the Pages. For counterspells, run Counterspell, Rewind, Arcane Denial and Remand. If you have a higher budget, run Voidslime and Mana Drain instead of Rewind and Arcane Denial also, Venser, Shaper Savant. If you want elementals, any out of Nissa, Sage Animist Flip, Nissa, Steward of Elements, Nissa, Worldwaker or Nissa, Genesis Mage is a really good option. Also on lands, if you have enough mana, run Liege of the Tangle and some unblockable spells (also see my infect decks below). Also, run more lands - 12 lands is NOT ENOUGH! I recommend a playset of Simic Signets and at least one Gilded Lotus, and possible Simic Keyrune and Thornwood Falls instead of or as well as Simic Guildgate. Run a minimum of 20 lands unless your deck is at least 1/3 mana rocks. This is a nice idea, so I hope I have improved it for you.

I tested game 1 against Jund a bit. The matchup is fine. Much better than I expected.
I've swapped Tireless Tracker for Bloodbraid Elf because the Elf was bonkers vs Jund. We get them with sticky damage. BBE is sticky damage. I could see it swapping for Huntmaster of the Fells Flip or even Arlinn Kord Flip, but the Elf is by far the most aggressive of the 3. I'd board it in against any deck where I'm the beatdown and think I'll get to 4 mana. Definitely vs control, Jund, Tron, Pyromancer, and probably more.
Now I'm rethinking the counterspells in the deck. They are awful to cascade into and aren't that great otherwise. Mana Leak is amazing when I can actually cast it, but Spell Pierce and Spell Snare rot in the hand most of the time.
The problem is that the counters are needed to fight decks like KCI and Storm, but really suck against Humans and Vengevine and other such decks. If I'm using the counterspells defensively, then Simic Charm could fill the same role and have more utility. But there's no substitute to countering Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or Krark-Clan Ironworks. I think I can safely remove Spell Snare and replace it with something that I can cascade into, but if I add Simic Charm then I'm also raising the curve.

I admit, despite all the ugly 1-ofs, this deck worked really well in a few games of testing.
I'd consider playing Simic Charm. It's super good for bouncing blockers (like wurmcoil engine) or protecting your creatures from removal. And the combat trick is amazing against a deck like humans.
I agree with seeker that faithless looting should be thought scour.
Consider Anger of the Gods for your sideboard. While you're advertising your deck as tempo, it's actually closer to a midrange deck that plays tempo cards. And in some matchups, like humans, it's fun to just play midrange and blow them out of the water with a beautiful card like Anger of the Gods. I can't run it in wurg delver, but I've had great success with it in Grixis delver in this meta.
Otherwise I think you've made yourself a really strong deck. You've built this well.

It surely is modern legal :) It's true it's a little slow. Do you have any particular removals and counters in mind? For now, it contains removal mechanics from Trygon Predator (enchantments and artifacts), hexproof provided by Plaxcaster Frogling +Simic Charm 2x Voidslime and 2x Essence Scatter

Hi everyone! I've recently started playing Magic again, after 12 years of break. My Trusty old Simic gathered a lot of dust, so I started to rebuild it using what I managed to get fast (and cheap). I wonder if it's any good and if anyone could provide any constructive feedback on what I should still change in it. I would greatly appreciete that. The card list is as below:
4x Thrummingbird 1x Vigean Hydropon 3x Trygon Predator 3x Plaxcaster Frogling 1x Vigean Graftmage 2x Vorel of the Hull Clade 2x Skyrider Patrol 3x Cytoplast Manipulator 1x Simic Ragworm 1x Cytoplast Root-Kin 1x Momir Vig, Simic Visionary 1x Experiment Kraj
ARTIFACTS and SPELLS

Favorite Shard: Grixis
Manipulative, cruel, powerful. Edicts, burn, bounce, counterspells, everything control can be found here, and with a handful of evasive, aggressive creatures to swoop in with once you've established control of the board, or you can play the slow-burn game with effects like Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Put your opponent(s) on a clock and deny them the ability to stop it. Plus their ability to run some of the meanest creatures in the form of things like Kederekt Creeper, Baleful Strix, Master of Cruelties, etc. So much fun to be had.
Favorite Wedge: Abzan
Relentless power. I love Abzan because of its resilience, strength, and versatility. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of Abzan specific cards, but being able to run things like Animate Dead, Sun Titan, Brave the Sands, alongside gigantic green creatures like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Ghoultree, Avatar of Might, etc is just incredible. The incredible suite of removal that B/W brings to the table in the form of Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, etc, combined with the might of Green creatures, further compounded by the volume of powerful reanimation effects these colors all have, builds a powerful, versatile deck that just never gives up. I've run Abzan decks that have had their most crucial cards hit with Slaughter Games type effects, and they still didn't stop, didn't slow down, and pulled out a win.
Favorite Allied Guild: Rakdos
Rakdos just knows how to throw a party. Every time I've built Rakdos I end up having fun, win or lose. Chaotic game-changers like Everlasting Torment, Havoc Festival, and Sire Of Insanity just bring a lot of shenanigans to the table that people just aren't prepared to deal with. Terminate is one of the kings of removal. Cards like Backlash, Delirium, and Rakdos Charm punish a variety of opposing playstyles. The individual colors also contribute a lot to your ability to handle creatures, and create even more chaos. Endless Whispers, Scrambleverse, you name it.
I cannot wait to get my hands on Last One Standing.
Favorite Enemy Guild: Simic
This one is simple, these two colors compliment each other so well it's insane. There is almost nothing that exists in this game that Simic cannot do. Green's weakness is its inability to manipulate the board much without combat. Blue's weakness is in its board presence and creatures. They are ideal together. Ramp, removal, aggro, counterspells, creature control, resilience. Simic has all its bases covered, and with just two colors. Mystic Snake, Trygon Predator, Kiora's Follower, Plasm Capture, Voidslime, Simic Charm, these cards are amazing, and that's without getting into the mono-color cards.
I'd also like to throw out some love for "Growth", the combination. The only pure Growth cards we have thus far are Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, and Witch-Maw Nephilim, but boy what cards they are. But the colors themselves are awesome together. G/U's flexibility, W/B's removal, much less other multicolor synergies, access to Abzan cards, Sultai cards, Esper cards. Obviously the mana base gets complicated fast, and it can be hard to handle, but if it works, it works.

Looks great to me, friend! You might add some modal spells like Primal Command, Mystic Confluence, Simic Charm (maybe), etc. That might increase your flexibility when it comes to beating different kinds of combo.
Also, I would guess that some dedicated graveyard hate might not be amiss. Scavenging Ooze, the new Ooze from C18, Ground Seal, or blue shuffle effects like Learn from the Past can help you beat cutthroat grave synergies. More hate includes Molder Slug, Rebuild, etc.
Things to cut, potentially your more durdly artifacts like Thaumatic Compass Flip, The Immortal Sun, Treasure Map Flip...but those are also fun to play, so I won't stop you. All my suggestions, though, are very situational and meta-dependent, because it looks like you've done a great job with the basics! And congrats on your strong game night performance with this deck! Cheers!
