Nice decklist, not sure if there's enough here to deal with mono-red though. Have you considered Leyline of Anticipation to help keep your mana open during your turn (adding two to the devotion count doesn't hurt either =)). Sphinx of Foresight might be a nice fit as it'll help smooth out draws and has flying to boot. Stern Dismissal can also help out in a pinch. Hope this helps.

What about Brazen Borrower?

Faerie Miscreant can be useful. Maybe Hypnotic Sprite, but it's a pretty weak card.

I'd definitely remove the Air Elementals. If you want a big beater, rather play Cavalier of Gales or Sphinx of Foresight. Heck, even Faerie Formation is stronger.

Cerulean Drake is a must-have for the sideboard in a deck like this.

Doritoboy100 on Deck help Oko+Simic guild+simic mutology ...

2 weeks ago

Hello all, I have been playing with the Oko structure deck, that I updated using Affinity For MTG's youtube video, and just bought the Simic Mutology structure deck as well as the Simic Guild Kit, as well as some booster pack cards. I'm trying to combine them into a 75 card deck, with 15 cards I know to take out for 60. Based off the cards in these 3 decks I'd like to build the deck around a constant flow of powerful monsters through the +1/+1 counters, as well as overloading on mana and drawing a lot. Some of the main points of damage right now are Oko who can just turn everything into a base 10/10 and distribute lots of +1/+1s, vorel who can double somethings counters, zegana who gives trample, galloping lizrog which can take all the +1/+1s and double them onto himself, nylea's forerunner for trample, progenitors mimic and miming slime to make clones, and wild born preserver for reach and his +1/+1s. But I also have things like coiling oracle/fathom mage to draw a lot, and gyre sage/maraleaf pixie for tons of mana. So I'd like to just find a good strategy in this mess lol.

The total card list of everything I will have is: (stuff with "x" seems important to me) Creatures: 1 Oko, the Tricksterx, 1 Vorel of the Hull Cladex, 1 Zegana, Utopian Speakerx, 1 Momir Vig, Simic Visionaryx, 2 Cloudfin Raptor, 4 Coiling Oraclex, 1 Cytoplast Root-Kin, 1 Elusive Krasis, 4 Faerie Vandalx, 1 Fathom Magex, 1 Frilled Mysticx, 1 Galloping Lizrogx, 1 Gyre Sagex, 4 Keeper of Fablesx, 3 Maraleaf Pixiex, 1 Nimbus Swimmer, 1 Nylea's Forerunnerx, 3 Paradise Druid, 2 Plaxmantax, 1 Progenitor Mimicx, 1 Protean Hulkx, 3 Spectral Sailorx, 4 Sphinx of Foresight, 2 Surveilling Sprite, 1 Trygon Predator, 2 Vigean Graftmage, 3 Vigean Hydropon, 1 Wildborn Preserverx, 2 Zameck Guildmagex,

Instants: 1 Applied Biomancyx, 1 Disdainful Strokex, 1 Gift of Strengthx, 2 Oko's Hospitalityx, 3 Optx, 1 Prying Eyes, 1 Quenchx, 1 Radical Ideax, 2 Rapid Hybridization, 1 Return of the Wildspeakerx, 1 Voidslime,

Sorcery: 2 Flash Foliagex, 1 Maximize Altitudex, 1 Miming Slimex, 1 Selective Snarex, 2 Shielding Plaxx, 1 Urban Evolutionx,

Enchantments: 3 Charmed Sleepx, 3 Frogifyx, 2 Setessan Trainingx,

Artifacts: 2 Simic Signet,

Land: 4 Simic Growth Chamberx, 4 Simic Guildgate, 4 Thornwood Fallsx, X Forestx, X Islandx

Thanks!

I love the list. I had the feeling once Thassa, Deep-Dwelling was revealed that mono-blue would be a more competetive list going forward.

I have to say tho, I feel like Vantress Gargoyle feels like the weak link here.

In mono blue, and with the SWEET emry synergy, it is a playable card, but I feel that if instead you ran Fae of Wishes as well as a few one off card in the sideboard ( Flood of Tears , Commence the Endgame other one off's, ect) you might be able to squeeze some more value out of the two drop slot. Fae still blocks just as well, but gives you a bit more to do with your mana generated from nyx lotus/kiora, and you can even pull vantress from the board given that it is an artifact if I am not mistaken. ( maybe not considering it is a creature artifact :P )

Also a card to consider would be Sphinx of Foresight . I have a blue green Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner deck built around Lotus Field and use him to great effect.

That said, I have yet to try the list out to see how it plays and to see how consistent you can get vantress to attack/block anyhow.

Sweet list +1

After some research, looks like other people are using 5 lands and building around Deathmist Raptor with some of the morph cards and megamorph cards out there. Temur Charger and Ruthless Ripper seem like good options to trigger Deathmist Raptor . You could remove Fork in the Road , Sphinx of Foresight and maybe one copy of Undercity Informer . I dont think sphinx does enough for you. The game plan seems to be mull until you get one forest and land fetchs. so why bother stacking your deck for the hope of moving one land to the top? Fork in the Road just seems like the worst fetch in the deck. i can see it messing you up when you need that other land. What do you think?

Opportunistic Dragon to is a sideboard card at best to me. Your point of getting the extra point of damage is fair, BUT you need both Sarkhan AND the dragon. The odds aren't in your favor when you aren't even running a playset of either. The abilities on the other hand... only being able to target humans and artifacts may be too specific. Depends on your meta if you wish to main board it or side board it. Asside from that, you should look for better 4 drops. Right now, you have 5 cards and 2 adventures totaling 7 different 4 drops you could play. Ral, Storm Conduit and Fae of Wishes are both great. BUT if you don't need the Opportunistic Dragon specifically for your meta, it will probably feel a little sad to draw. Maybe consider these other powerful cards you could play.

Drawn from Dreams is great for card advantage that will keep you going by churning through your deck for what you need.

If you are looking to add in creatures, consider the following: Dungeon Geists can be effective at stall and is a decent body with flying, Sphinx of Foresight can be a awesome starting card or decent beater with draw fixing, and Nightveil Predator who is just a great card for stalling.

I’d personally shift out Senate Guildmage , Sphinx of Foresight , Dovin's Veto , and Consecrate//Consume for the Knight package with hero and Worthy Knight .
