Simic Growth Chamber Discussion

Winterblast on Artifact Angels (BANT)

6 days ago

Archangel Avacyn  Flip has a red backside, it doesn't fit your commander's colours...

Also, Trinket Mage with only one target to tutor for is awfully weak. It's a great card but you need some sort of toolbox to make it relevant in any stages of the game. For example Pithing Needle, Engineered Explosives (nice with Academy Ruins and Crop Rotation/Sylvan Scrying to tutor for it, also makes a good pile for Intuition with Crucible of Worlds/Academy Ruins/Engineered Explosives or Regrowth), Aether Spellbomb or some mana rocks such as Mana Vault, Voltaic Key, Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox and a bit more expensive Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond.

I wouldn't recommend lands like Simic Growth Chamber, because they are very much fun for the first person, who happens to have a Strip Mine, Wasteland or any other land removals in the early game and it sets you back like 3 turns. It happened so often and recently I've not seen anyone play these lands anymore because they are so risky. If you combine them with Amulet of Vigor (also a target for Trinket Mage) they are good, but alone they suck.

I frankly enjoy them. I find you can get maximum benefit from them if you also use them in conjunction with the bounce dual lands like Dimir Aqueduct or Simic Growth Chamber. That way you get a lot of extra scry, although with the 'enters tapped' part of both lands, you may want to invest in an Amulet of Vigor or something to that effect.

HawkRider on Let Ezuri Reign

First, as someone who loves his Ezuri deck, Sage of Hours is your best friend. Learn to love him. Really good synergy with Ezuri.

Other things I can recommend... Chasm Skulker and Hangarback Walker are nice little creatures that can be made big and - as an extra benefit - if they die with Ezuri around, you'll have a bunch of Experience counters and a lot of evasive 1/1s. Meloku the Clouded Mirror and Animation Module are nice, repeatable sources of more 1/1s.

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is powerful (If you cast a UG creature, tutor for another. Nice easy way to swarm things). Simic Manipulator is an utter jerk move - I see your Avacyn, Angel of Hope and I want it now! - but is kind of best with Haste admittedly. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is a nice extra bit of draw, potentially being free cards (but I like the Cascade mechanic, so this may be personal bias). Mystic Snake is also a fantastic card.

Outside of creatures, Panharmonicon is amazing, getting you two Experience counters instead of one. Bow of Nylea is amazingly versatile and may make your opponents reluctant to block at times. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a great source of 0/1s and counters, as well as just potentially giving you a bunch of cards and life if she's around long enough. Cyclonic Rift is an amazing card in general, Rite of Replication can be brutal if you have the right target (Avenger of Zendikar, anyone?). Conjurer's Closet and Blade of Selves can easily do the same.

Other than that... For your mana base I recommend getting a Simic Growth Chamber, Mosswort Bridge, Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel, as well as the Simic fetch land since you have your shock land. I can also recommend Leyline of Anticipation, Alchemist's Refuge and Seedborn Muse are great, Leyline of Lifeforce and Asceticism for protection, Wild Pair has a range of targets available for you in this kind of deck no matter the creature. Oh, and Proliferate effects like Inexorable Tide or Contagion Engine are great. Then if you want to surprise people with a small army at the end (such as with Avenger of Zendikar), Concordant Crossroads is a very weird card in terms of colours, but a very good one to finish things off with a bang.

Also, if you have a lot of money, Akroma's Memorial and and Doubling Season are amazing cards and highly recommended. I think a couple of the cards I mentioned earlier are a little pricey as well, but I honestly can't remember exactly.

A lot of these suggestions come from my own deck and things that I want for it. If you want more control of the game, I'm really not the best person to ask (and Ezuri isn't a great Commander for control anyway...) but I can give you some some decent pointers otherwise.

My last thing to note is that your mana base is pretty off, and you may want a little more ramp in there, or just two or three more lands. You definitely don't need that many Islands, only a third of your mana symbols are Blue but you've got more Blue sources than Green. I'd say cut four or so sources of Blue for Green.

That's all that comes to mind right now. Thanks for helping me come up with some ideas for my own deck too!

In a serious sense, I'd recommend Somberwald Sage and Simic Growth Chamber to go really really well with Kiora's Follower.

Jagd_Tallgeese on Energy Gives you Power

1 month ago

I have had a few fun times creating standard decks that utilize energy production to secure victory. Shielded Aether Thief would probably be a better replacement for Shipwreck Moray. It is 2 mana cheaper than the moray, and you gain energy anytime it blocks. The energy gain can be used to fuel this three artifact combo: Decoction Module, Fabrication Module, and Animation Module. The modules can feed each other as long as you have the mana and can pump your creatures to lethal levels. Land wise, some immediate additions would be Aether Hub, Simic Growth Chamber, and Sandsteppe Citadel. After that, look for as many dual lands in those colors as possible. I would replace Wind-Kin Raiders with Empyreal Voyager as the voyager is cheaper, has trample, and provides as much energy that it deals a combat damage. Token generators to consider adding are Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and Master Trinketeer. Two decent token generators in blue for your deck would be Thopter Spy Network and Sharding Sphinx and they can help trigger each other's effects. You could also replace Multiform Wonder with Electrostatic Pummeler. Hope that helps!

Coral Atoll for Simic Growth Chamber

No Sol Ring, Green Sun's Zenith, Joraga Treespeaker, or Bloom Tender? (when did bloom tender get so expensive?)

is Bonds of Mortality important in your area?

Primal Rage? maybe an Overrun type effect? or go bigger with Akroma's Memorial

Cancel there has to be a better counterspell somewhere, maybe Arcane Denial or Mystic Snake for shenanigans with Deadeye Navigator

Lifespring Druid could be replaced withcheaper mana dudes, Quirion Elves or maybe Shaman of Forgotten Ways

Horizon Chimera, Zendikar's Roil, don't seem very strong, kinda out of place with the rest of the deck as well

Liquidmetal coating change a planeswalker to an artifact and double with commander

Utopia Mycon, Mage-Ring Network, Rushwood Grove, Saprazzan Cove could be clever

Blizwiz on Artifact Angels (BANT)

Few suggestions: Swap Gavony Township for Seraph Sanctuary, In my experience you don't usually have leftover mana to use townships ability.

Lonely Sandbar and Tranquil Thicket for something like Thornwood Falls, Sejiri Refuge or Temple of Plenty. If a land is going to come into the battlefield tapped at least have it do something like you gain one life or scry a card. Or get a double land like Simic Growth Chamber and pair it with a basic land or Radiant Fountain.

Pearl Medallion is always a help since most angels are white, also helps your instants and everything else.

Here's an updated version of my deck you commented on before :) http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jenara-angel-edh-1/
