Simic Guildgate Discussion

Throw in some Hexproof and maybe Illusionist's Bracers and you can get a pretty fast commander damage kill. Just have your boss hit himself a few times.

Bounty of the Luxa would be handy and maybe a few cheap lands to help your mana base : Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Simic Guildgate, Simic Growth Chamber, Thornwood Falls and Woodland Stream

Hey! Love your enthusiasm for your snake deck. As someone who's relatively new to Magic, I've never seen a snake deck... and it was a treat.

Thornwood Falls and Temple of Mystery are solid budget replacements for Simic Guildgate. I'd even mail you a couple Thornwood Falls if you want them :)

It seems like you'd want more basic forests over islands, as none of your turn 1 & 2 plays are blue and you only run 6 untapped green sources. Plus, when you actually need islands, you have Sakura-Tribe Elder and Terramorphic Expanse to find them for you. Maybe consider dropping 4 islands and add 4 forests?

I would suggest taking out the Simic Guildgate and replacing it with a Command Tower. Just like Sol Ring it is a Commander staple. If price isn't an option I suggest you spend the two or three dollars on the revised edition Sol Ring. They're very pretty, and the artist who did them is amazing! Hope this helps. I love seeing new people trying out the format :)

You're definitely on the right track. I'm personally not a fan of the keyrunes and signets for mana rocks, you could try Astral Cornucopia or Everflowing Chalice instead. I think your land count is a tad high, you could probably drop 2 or 3 and be okay. I'd drop the Vivid lands and maybe swap Simic Guildgate for Lotus Vale

For enchantments, Doubling Season is a fantastic option, if a little expensive. There are more budget friendly options but they are weaker.

You could switch Plaxmanta for Plaxcaster Frogling for reliable shroud at instant speed instead of just on ETB.

You have a few counterspells which is good, but there are better options. I'd switch Negate for Counterspell, Contradict for Arcane Denial and lastly Cancel can become Disallow

Hope this helps, best of luck with the deck and welcome to Magic!

Hello! I appreciate the effort put in to make a cheap Infect deck. Just a couple things I see wrong here:

Hope this helps!

Rusty_Shackleford - Lotus Petal was printed as a common in Tempest Remasterd and is therefore Pauper legal... Lol

If you tap a land and "float" the mana, then play Simic Growth Chamber and return the tapped land to your hand, you won't lose your mana and you won't be slowed down any more than a Simic Guildgate plus you will have an extra land from the Chamber on your next turn on top of being able to bounce the Thornwood Falls for lifegain. Guildgate obsolete. Chamber and Falls stronger in this deck.

And, with Brainstorm, you can replace any "bunk" spells in your ENTIRE hand. That means if you have a creature and need a pump, vise versa, etc... In this deck I believe Brainstorm to be the more powerful card over Preordain, Ponder, and Serum Visions simply for the fact you are able to manipulate your entire hand and not just the top cards of your deck.

Lotus Petal is an uncommon and not pauper legal.

My advice would be to replace the Simic Growth Chambers with one of each basic and a pair of Simic Guildgates, as they are more flexible and do not bounce your lands. I'd also probably cut Manamorphose entirely and run at least some of the Vines of Vastwood in the main deck.

I'd also replace Brainstorm with Ponder or Preordain; Brainstorm is only really good when you're running shuffle effects, which this deck is not.
