Tatyova, Benthic Druid Discussion

Murphy77 on Simic Merfolk

I like the idea and the Merfolk work well together. To take this deck to the next level, I would look to bring in Evolution Sage that just keeps adding +1/+1 counters to your Merfolk. Jadelight Ranger is normally standard in a deck like this.

My recommendation would be Evolution Sage for Incubation / Incongruity and Jadelight Ranger for Silvergill Adept .

This change would most likely mean replacing Wizard's Retort and Dovin, Hand of Control in the side-board with Enter the Unknown and maybe Tatyova, Benthic Druid

Declaration of Naught to lock an opponent commander, can replace Phyrexian Revoker

Back to Basics is going to kill you more than the opponent you have only 8 basic land.

Phyrexian Arena instead of Tatyova, Benthic Druid (only 3 mana, and you will draw every turn and it's an enchantment)

if you don't want to play Toothy, Imaginary Friend , play Winding Constrictor instead of Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Simic Ascendancy would be really powerfull in this deck ! win condition + enchantment + counter

Atraxa is your only big creature so i will replace card like Mikaeus, the Lunarch , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit with card like Forgotten Ancient and Evolutionary Escalation to give a lot of counter to atraxa.

Could be fun to play some exltation things to kill you oponent with atraxa. Rafiq of the Many can be really fun withatraxa x).

Good luck with your deck ^^

If you care more about color combination, I'd suggest you play Grand Arbiter Augustin IV or Brago, King Eternal instead of any of those. Of course, the choice depends on your meta so it's hard to make calls without that, but generally I think that both of these would hold their ground better than the 3 you mentioned.

As for what would be the best of your picks, again, this depends a lot on your meta. But generally, I'm a fan of Tatyova, Benthic Druid here. Green offers more for control game plan than white does and Tatyova itself makes a good use out of green's ramp spells. Locally, creature-heavy staxy meta that doesn't care much about graveyards, we have a Tatyova turns deck that does strangely well considering that she's usually the lowest ranked deck at the table by this list. There are always bigger threats than her to worry about, she dodges most of our stax relatively easily and she can get out of control quite easily. I'm more than a bit biased here and she works in my specific meta that might be quite different from yours, but I've seen Tatyova do stuff that make competitive decks scared. Stuff that I don't really think either Geist or Noyan can pull.

I'm getting a little itch to play a control deck. I'm leaning Azorius, either Geist of Saint Traft , or Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper , the latter of which doesn't seem to have a win angle other than grinding out the table and praying? Any thoughts on those two?

My third option is maybe Tatyova, Benthic Druid , who seems a bit more versatile by having green, but I'm still leaning Azorius.

Anyone have experience with the abovementioned generals?

Congratulations for your deck! I like the idea of cloning stuff, and I am still trying to find a build that works. If I can give you a hint, prefer cards that can clone any creature on the field over the cards that can only clone your creatures (everyone should have a Consecrated Sphinx , right? Not only your opponent).

I don't feel like would help you much with cloning. The best (and maybe only) white card that refers to cloning is Mirrorweave .

If you look at https://edhrec.com/themes/clones, you will see that almost all clone effects are blue: Clone , Vizier of Many Faces , Gigantoplasm , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Body Double , Mirror Image , Supplant Form , Blatant Thievery , Clone Legion , Mirror Match . If you want to copy spells aswell, Insidious Will , Swarm Intelligence and Spelltwine are there for you.

gives you Mirror Match , Dack's Duplicate , Dualcaster Mage , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Protean Raider , Flameshadow Conjuring and Sunbird's Invocation .

gives you Evil Twin and all black tutors and removal.

gives you Altered Ego , Progenitor Mimic , Spitting Image and all of green ramp and removal. For me, it is the best color to splash on a blue clone deck, because it also allows the Biovisionary alternative win-condition.

As long as commander suggestions are concerned, here are some ideas:

Riku of Two Reflections is the go-to clone commander. He has all the relevant colors for cloning (), but he is crazy expensive at 20 dollars, so it might be good to consider other options:

You can have Keiga, the Tide Star as your commander. This way, you can clone him and let the copy Keiga die to the legend rule. When the Keiga copy dies, you can steal an opponent's creature, while still having the original Keiga.

You can have Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as your commander. He is a win condition by himself, giving tokens haste and making all of them bigger. Red gives you a lot of token generators: Brass's Bounty , Flameshadow Conjuring , Storm the Vault  Flip among others. Imagine creating a token copy of a Kokusho, the Evening Star , then turn all your tokens into Kokusho, then sacrificing all them to the legend rule, then draining all your oponents for lethal. Great value!

You can have Tatyova, Benthic Druid as your commander. She doesn't refer to a clone strategy, but she gives a lot of card draw by just playing lands (your hand will always be filled). You can clone Rampaging Baloths and Avenger of Zendikar for a massive win. Also, you have access to all the blue-green clones and the Biovisionary + Rite of Replication combo.

If you want to use altogether, you might consider Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis . Yidris allows you to use Evil Twin and all the black removal. Yidris also increases the value you get from playing spells by cascading into other spells. // K&T, on the other hand, gives you card advantage and makes you less threatening while you build your board. White also gives you access to great boardwipes ( Austere Command ).

All in all, good luck in your deckbuilding and have fun!

Tatyova, Benthic Druid really likes lands

Very well might as was my initial assumption, but there are people at my LGS who are playing it. Even if Oathbreaker crumbles as Tiny Leaders did, I still own all of these cards; I could make an excellent UB lands matter-ish style commander out of this with Tatyova, Benthic Druid .

Tiny Leaders had issues, namely a smaller amount of people playing Commander when it was proposed and Baral, Chief of Compliance style decks nigh solving the entire format. As of WAR I feel that we have enough Planewalkers for a good variety of decks which can stop any kind solving.

Out of curiosity, why do you think Oathbreaker will peter out like both Brawl and Tiny Leaders mikeb388? Reviewing your profile only shows standard decks: do you even play Commander?

Sylvan Library would have an interesting interaction with Toothy, Imaginary Friend . You draw the two extra cards, so Toothy would get a total of three counters.

Tatyova, Benthic Druid would provide excellent value in this deck. I also think you should run some sac outlets to take advantage of Toothy's card draw. Evolutionary Leap is good, Ashnod's Altar , Birthing Pod , Altar of Dementia , High Market and Claws of Gix are other options.
