Simic Manipulator Discussion

poorpinkus on Infinite Combos in EDH - Experiment Kraj Budget

4 days ago

viveter Myriad blade wouldn't work since Kraj is legendary, but I gotta be honest I feel like I have enough ways to get around creatures that it'd be a unnecessary to ad more options; AEtherling, Cephalid Inkshrouder, Pemmin's Aura, Whispersilk Cloak, , Thornling and Morphling both work really well since they protects both Kraj and themselves while also offering evasion, Beguiler of Wills, Simic Manipulator and Cytoplast Manipulator allow me to take my opponents' blockers while getting board advantage, and Ethereal Usher gives me the option to get unblockable while also letting me get cards like Arcanis the Omnipotent if I want.

The thing with this deck is that I am trying to aim for a lot of cards with multiple purposes, so for example most of my evasion cards double as protection. If I add too many cards like Blade of Selves or cards that just give unblockable, then I have a much lower chance of drawing into a combo piece that I need. The idea is that it's supposed to be as much of a Johnny deck as possible, so if I win it is by some crazy combo, but if I lose it's fine. I don't really want to make the deck unstoppable since then it wouldn't be that fun to play against if that makes any sense.

Anyways, thanks for the suggestions! I'm not entirely saying no to them, I'm just trying to reason out how I feel like the deck should work as a whole. I'll definitely be looking into mass protection cards (maybe Heroic Intervention?) as I do see some creatures that I could remove (specifically Somberwald Sage since it doesn't work for any combos, Gilder Bairn possibly because the ability costs a fair amount although untap abilities are very nice, and Beguiler of Wills/Simic Manipulator since they draw too much attention for what they are worth), so it is good to know what other people think I could work on to make the deck work better.

LordBlackblade on Accordion Block Issues

Of course. I'm so sorry! I don't know why I thought you could do anything without the code! Lol

![Alt text](http://media.wizards.com/images/magic/daily/features/feat225_2_2m3j3b4vu6.png)

My third EDH deck, and my first non-Black EDH. I chose [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]] because I have always liked the idea of a +1/+1 counter-based deck. Blue/Green (Simic) is an ideal color combination for such a deck, as mechanics like Evolve naturally place counters on your creatures. Coupled with the Proliferate mechanic from New Phyrexia, and you have a deck that easily turns one and two drop creatures into powerhouses.
===accordion
===panel:Card Draw
Card draw is a powerful mechanic, and no color does it better than Blue. In this particular deck the card draw is mostly creature-based.

[[Coiling Oracle]] - Mana acceleration or card draw depending on the card revealed.

[[Cold-Eyed Selkie]] - Card draw on damage. With all the counter generation in this deck, this card has potential.

[[Fathom Mage]] - Draw a card whenever she gets a counter, which in this deck should happen a lot.

[[Lifecrafter's Bestiary]] - Pay an additional [[symbol:G]] whenever you cast a creature spell to draw a card.

[[Momir Vig, Simic Visionary]] - Whenever you play a blue creature, put the the top card of your library in your hand as long as it's a creature.

[[Nissa, Voice of Zendikar]] - Her ultimate ability can draw a considerable amount of cards.

[[Prime Speaker Zegana]] - With all the counter generation in this deck, she should draw you at least seven cards if not more.

[[Rashmi, Eternities Crafter]] - If the cast doesn't trigger from her ability, you can put the card in your hand.

[[Steady Progress]] - Proliferate and draw a card. Instant speed.

[[Tezzeret's Gambit]] - Draw two cards and proliferate.
===endpanel
===panel:Counter Generation
The true essence of the Simic Combine and the bread and butter of this deck. +1/+1 counters beef up creatures and can be used to trigger a variety of abilities.

[[Avenger of Zendikar]] - Puts +1/+1 counters on its own tokens and those generated by [[Nissa, Voice of Zendikar]].

[[Champion of Lambholt]] - Gets a +1/+1 counter whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control.

[[Chasm Skulker]] - Gets a +1/+1 counter whenever you draw a card.

[[Doubling Season]] - Doubles all counters that would be placed on any permanent you control.

[[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]] - Places +1/+1 counters on a creature before each of your combat steps.

[[Fathom Mage]] - Evolve places a +1/+1 counter on a creature whenever a creature with greater power or toughness enters the battlefield under your control.

[[Fertilid]] - Enters the battlefield with two +1/+1 counters on it.

[[Gyre Sage]] - See [[Fathom Mage]]

[[Hangarback Walker]] - Enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it. Pay [[symbol:1]] and tap it to put a +1/+1 counter on it.

[[Hardened Scales]] - Whenever a creature you control would get a +1/+1 counter it gets an additional counter as well.

[[Hooded Hydra]] - Pay X mana to have it enter the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.

[[Kalonian Hydra]] - Enters with four +1/+1 counters; however, doubles the number of +1/+1 counters on all creatures you control when it attacks.

[[Master Biomancer]] - Places +1/+1 counters equal to its power on each creature you control that enters the battlefield.

[[Mycoloth]] - Gets counters equal to twice the number of creatures sacrificed as it enters the battlefield.

[[Nissa, Voice of Zendikar]] - Her minus two ability places a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.

[[Plaxcaster Frogling]] - Enters the battlefield with three +1/+1 counters on it. Graft allows you to transfer these counters as well.

[[Prime Speaker Zegana]] - Enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters, where X is the greatest power among creatures you control.

[[Rishkar, Peema Renegade]] - Allows you to distribute two +1/+1 counters when he enters the battlefield.

[[Sage of Hours]] - Place a +1/+1 counter on him whenever you cast a spell that targets him. Doesn't really happen in this deck.

[[Simic Manipulator]] - See [[Fathom Mage]]

[[Verdurous Gearhulk]] - Allows you to distribute four +1/+1 counters when it enters the battlefield.

[[Vigor]] - Converts damage that would be dealt to creatures you control into the same amount of +1/+1 counters.

[[Vorel of the Hull Clade]] - His activated ability doubles the number of counters on target artifact, creature, or land.

[[Walking Ballista]] - Enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it. Pay [[symbol:4]] to put an additional +1/+1 counter on it.
===endpanel
===panel:Counterspells
There is no more powerful, nor satisfying effect, than a well-timed counterspell. Being able to stop an opponent's big play or infinite combo is an amazing ability.

[[Counterspell]] - As basic as counterspells get. 

[[Disallow]] - Counters any spell, activated ability, or triggered ability. Potentially a lifesaver.

[[Fuel for the Cause]] - Expensive as counterspells go, but does proliferate as well.

[[Glen Elendra Archmage]] - Counters noncreature spells. Easily repeatable with the amount of +1/+1 counters the deck generates.

[[Mystic Snake]] - A counterspell and a creature that can trigger [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]].

[[Plasm Capture]] -A little expensive for a counterspell, but gives you mana during your next precombat mainphase.

[[Voidslime]] - See [[Disallow]] 
===endpanel
===panel:Mana Sources
Mana is required to play spells. This is one of the most basic concepts of magic. More mana allows more spells to be cast. More spells allow for more plays to tilt the game in your favor. Therfore, getting mana as rapidly as possible increases one's chance of victory.

[[Birds of Paradise]] - One mana for a chump blocker that also produces mana of any color. A staple.

[[Coiling Oracle]] - You either draw a card, or get an additional land onto the battlefield.

[[Cultivate]] - Search for two basic lands, put one into play, and the other into your hand.

[[Devoted Druid]] - Basic mana dork with a twist. Reusable due to +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters negating one another.

[[Fertilid]] - Remove a counter and pay mana to search for a basic land. Highly repeatable coupled with the +1/+1 counter generation in this deck.

[[Gyre Sage]] - Potentially a massive mana source if you are able to put sufficient +1/+1 counters on it.

[[Kodama's Reach]] - See [[Cultivate]]

[[Nissa, Steward of Elements]] - Her second ability can put a land onto the battlefield from the top of your library.

[[Plasm Capture]] - Counters a spell and gets you some mana during your next precombat main phase.

[[Rishkar, Peema Renegade]] - Turns any creature with a +1/+1 counter on it into a mana source. Very powerful in this deck.

[[Simic Signet]] - Mana acceleration and fixing in one. A staple.

[[Sol Ring]] - [[symbol:1]] to get [[symbol:2]]. Few cards are as powerful.
===endpanel
===panel:Miscellaneous
Some cards in a deck don't really fit into the deck's broad categories. This is sort of a catch-all for useful, but perhaps niche effects or supplemental cards.

[[As Foretold]] - Gives you a free spell every turn. Couples well with all of the Proliferate effects in the deck.

[[Blighted Agent]] - Unblockable 1/1 with Infect. Possible win-con coupled with [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]].

[[Cyclonic Rift]] - Essentially a tool to set up for the big finish by removing all of your opponents' potential blockers.
 
[[Eternal Witness]] - A tool for getting back cards that have been used/milled.

[[Lightning Greaves]] - Almost exclusively used to protect [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]] from spot removal.

[[Herald of Secret Streams]] - Doesn't generate +1/+1 counters, but makes all creatures you control with counters unblockable.

[[Invisible Stalker]] - Unblockable 1/1 with Hexproof. Becomes huge when coupled with [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]].

[[Panharmonicon]] - Creates more triggers for [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]]. Synergizes well with enters the battlefield effects as well.

[[Rashmi, Eternities Crafter]] - A source of free spells. Works well with the low average CMC of the deck.

[[Reliquary Tower]] - With as many cards as this deck draws, having no maximum hand size comes in handy.

[[Swiftfoot Boots]] - See [[Lightning Greaves]]

[[Trygon Predator]] - Artifact and enchantment removal on a stick.

[[Vizier of the Menagerie]] - Allows you to play the top card of the deck if its a creature. Also allows us to use mana of any color for casting creature spells.
===endpanel
===panel:Proliferate
+1/+1 counters can be powerful in their own right. Any mechanic that can put more counters on your permanents should be a welcome addition to the deck.

[[Contagion Clasp]] - A basic source of proliferate. Costs [[symbol:4]] to use.

[[Contagion Engine]] - [[Contagion Clasp]]'s big brother. A board wipe and proliferate source in one.

[[Fuel for the Cause]] - Counter a spell and proliferate. Pure advantage.

[[Inexorable Tide]] - Expensive, but the ability to proliferate multiple times in a turn is very powerful.

[[Steady Progress]] - Proliferate and draw a card. Simple and effective.

[[Tezzeret's Gambit]] - Draw two cards and proliferate. Almost always paid for using life.

[[Thrummingbird]] - A proliferation machine. Very reliable source if you can keep it alive.

[[Viral Drake]] - Repeatable proliferate. Reasonably priced for the effect.
===endpanel
===panel:Token Generation
A minor sub-theme within the deck. Several cards generate tokens upon death. Mainly for use as board wipe recovery. If several small tokens enter the battlefield, can give several triggers for [[Ezuri, Claw of Progress]].

[[Avenger of Zendikar]] - Creates 0/1 Plant toekns equal to the number of lands you control when it enters the battlefield.

[[Blade of Selves]] - Generates multiple temporary tokens on attack of whatever it is equipped to.

[[Chasm Skulker]] - Creates 1/1 Squid tokens equal to the number of +1/+1 counters on it upon death.

[[Doubling Season]] - Doubles the number of tokens generated by other cards I control.

[[Hangarback Walker]] - As [[Chasm Skulker]], but produces 1/1 Flying Thopters instead of Squids.

[[Hooded Hydra]] - As [[Chasm Skulker]], but produces 1/1 Snakes instead of Squids.

[[Mycoloth]] - Produces 1/1 Saprolings at the beginning of your upkeep equal to the number of +1/+1 counters on it.

[[Nissa, Voice of Zendikar]] - Her +1 creats a 0/1 Plant token.

LordBlackblade on Accordion Block Issues

So as the title says, I've been having issues with my accordion blocks on my decks lately. Below is an example of the coding, and you can see the end result at the deck's page: Ezuri's Unending Progress

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like all of my decks to end up looking nice and uniform. My other deck Karlov's Tithes is exactly how I want things to end up. Thanks in advance!

Archetype of Imagination - Costs too much, your drakes will fly. Other creatures should be for USEFUL utility or defense.

Dragon's Eye Savants - Very weak effect. If you really like to know their hand, Telepathy does that much better (don't recommend either)

Galecaster Colossus - Has some synergy with some wizards. It costs too much, even with potential synergy. You could replace this with an expensive counterspell or just more ramp/card draw.

Graceful Adept - See Reliquary Tower, Venser's Journal and Thought Vessel for a better replacement.

Mistfire Adept - Costs too much for what it does.

Paragon of Gathering Mists - Anthem affects are ok. They are usually considered "win more", meaning, if you are winning (have an advantageous board state filled with drakes/creatures), then they will help you "win more." If someone wrathed while you were tapped out and you draw this, then it will be effectively useless. You want to limit the number of "dead" cards in EDH.

Shorecrasher Elemental - No real way to abuse it (unless I'm missing something?). Replace with a 3 CMC counterspell, draw or bounce effect.

Simic Fluxmage - You are not playing simic, don;t use this card. Very weak effect with little to no synergy

Simic Manipulator - See above

Bruxo on Modern Casual Simic Evolve

Hi!
I like your deck and also I have a quite similar Evolve deck.
Some changes that I would made:
- Remove Unsummon to add Simic Charm, since it is more versitile.
- Cytoshape is good, but I don't think that it works well with evolve. I would put another Master Biomancer, Fathom Mage or some high power or thoughness 2 drops to help your creatures evolve.
- Add another Cloudfin Raptor. 4 are essencial.
- I would remove a couple of Simic Manipulator. They are good, but I think that 4 of them is to much.
- With Give / Take I would definitely play Fathom Mage, since it can draw you at least 6 cards if you play the Fuse cost.
- Zameck Guildmage is a good "+1/+1 counter manager". You should add him.
- Cytoplast Root-Kin + Renegade Krasis combo well togheter if you evolve the Krasis with the Root-kin.

I leave the link to my deck here if you want some ideas or other suggestions of cards to try in your deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/01-10-14-simic-evolve/
Have a nice time evolving your little mutants! ;)

I'd probably go for a lower manacurve, as this is a somewhat too slow for modern... 4 Cloudfin Raptor and 4 Experiment One. In turn, I'd drop most of the Simic Manipulators, as they are 0/1 creatures, with a rather conditional tap-ability.

Cytoshape sounds like a bit too circumstantial, as does the plan of recasting anything unsummoned. But Ghostly Flicker could probably accomplish pretty much the same, without letting your opponent get to play counterspells or discard along the way. Isn't there some fight-card, that puts a +1/+1 counter on your creature pre-fight?

If you splash white, you could play Gavony Township... or the somewhat harder-to-use Novijen, Heart of Progress without splash.

Thorbogl on Ultra-Budget: Teenage Mutant Ninja Wizards

How about Simic Initiate as alternative one drop?

It feels like he has better synergy with Hardened Scales and Simic Manipulator.

even though it might not be the best card to draw into, it seems to be a bit more aggresive and abusable.
