Loaming Shaman could help with the mill problem I know he isn't human but he helps me out a lot. I found some humans and elves you might like Deathrite Shaman,Grim Flayer,Grim Haruspex,Meren of Clan Nel Toth,Master Biomancer,Hamlet Captain,Kazandu Tuskcaller,Lighthouse Chronologist,Xathrid Necromancer,Zulaport Cutthroat they are all under 3 so you can use them with Abundance. Have you thought about Sultai Ascendancy to help with your draws or Rhystic Study? Also if your doing humans for the main theme I would try and use allies and werewolves they are pretty strong as a group plus you are already using Moonmist its just a thought sorry do make this so long hope some of these help you out! =)

I have some recommendations for you:

I choose to run the above cards to have more control over my discard because there is nothing more frustrating than dredging Animate Dead into your graveyard and then drawing a huge creature you can't cast.

These are all great main targets for The Mimeoplasm.

Your build doesn't very many fatty to exile to put couters on The Mimeoplasm.

All three are better than compulsion IMHO.

Drawing cards will win you games.

There are more ideas of course but those are what comes to mind right away for me. I'm basing my recommendations off of my own build, check it out when you have some time. You may find something else you like that I didn't mention.

I use a lot of things like Compulsion, Frantic Search, Thirst for Knowledge and Forbidden Alchemy. These are all nice as they allow you to maintain card advantage while still filling up your graveyard. Survival of the Fittest, and fauna shaman are also good but can be spendy. But they are nice as they can tutor specific creatures to your hand so you can either play them or pitch for mime fodder. Things like Entomb, Buried Alive, and Corpse Connoisseur are also nice as they can also tutor cards to pitch directly into the graveyard. If you liked Sultai Ascendancy, then you would also probably like Monastery Siege. Using there, you should be able to start pumping your graveyard fairly fast starting around turn 3 or 4.

I would try to stay away from treating the deck as like a legacy reanimator deck though. I don't feel like Mime is best played as a deck that aims to throw big huge creatures into the graveyard and renanimiate them with Mime on turn 3 for a huge creature (if this is your aim, you may as well play Hermit Druid Combo). I think it should be an option, but not the primary aim. Rather, I think Mime is best as more of a midrange toolbox list -- able to consistently re-establish board presence and exhaust your opponent's resources. As such, it isn't super important that you load your graveyard by turn 3 or 4.

Thanks for the comment and the suggestions! Some of them like Consuming Aberration, Corpse Connoisseur, Necromancy i have already on my list. I think my main problem is to get the creatures into the graveyard fast. How do you handle that? Therefore Sultai Ascendancy is a card that will defently go on my want list :D

Granted my Mimeoplasm deck is much more combo oriented, some cards I have found to be super useful fir Mimeoplasm are Pathrazer of Ulamog, Mindshrieker, Consuming Aberration, Corpse Connoisseur, Havengul Lich, Sepulchral Primordial, Diluvian Primordial, Sphinx Ambassador, Compulsive Research, Thirst for Knowledge, Sultai Ascendancy, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, Shadowborn Demon, Compulsion, Frantic Search, Forbidden Alchemy, Cyclonic Rift, Alchemist's Refuge, and Progenitor Mimic. Some of those aren't the cheapest things in the word, although I did try to exclude things that I think are a bit pricey. I guess it depends on your budget though. I have also had a lot of success with Worm Harvest.

Spicy Maro

Creature - Elemental

Spicy Maro's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in your hand.

Discard a card: Spicy Maro gets +2/+2 until end of turn.


Create an ascendancy (like Sultai Ascendancy and Mardu Ascendancy) for a shard of Alara.

landofMordor Thank you for the suggestion (some of which I used). The main reason I had a few evolve cards (some of which needed to be replaced) was partially to have a place holder, and partially for subthemes. I think that Yidris is best used with somewhat random cards, that have some amount of synergies, in order for the deck to be fun. Thank you also for the advice on Archmage Ascension which I have had no experience with.

Berrin7, as per your advice I took out two panorama's and added Sultai Ascendancy back in from the maybe board.

Sultai Ascendancy is great because it's basically a free scry 2 on your upkeep. Also, Esper and Naya Panoramas probably aren't necessary. Two should be fine.
