Quadsimotto on Simic Tap Dance (shark-tempo-crab)

2 weeks ago

As cheesecake mentioned the familiar with the growth chamber guardian is bonkers. After looking at both of your brews I took a copy of mine and made a more aggro version and those two go together hand in hand. During testing I am seeing 2-3 4/4 GCG on board really early game. T1 lawnmower elf, T2 growth spiral into a off land biomancer familiar, turn three you can have just about 5 cmc card down or you can play a GCG adapt him for one G pull another and drop him on the board too. Turn four is adapt the fresh one tap the familiar to re adapt the first one and refill your hand with the last GCGs. SO now on turn five your opponent is looking at a 1/1 2/2 6/6 4/4 and knows you have two more elf crabs in your hand to pump up for cheap.

I have also had an incubation druid get seriously out of control with the familiar. My brew uses the Enter the Unknown over stony strength as If it misses and hits a land I still get to flop it on down. If it hits and I have a land in hand, its a a counter and I get to flop another land down. Several games goldfishing I have had five lands down on turn three plus a llanowar and druid. That is a buttload of usable mana on turn four. Now with red burn in the format as strong as it is I need to find a way yo stay alive for a while longer. I guess krasis is my best option. Still working on the aggro version. Ill put it up when I feel it is refined.

In your sideboard(unless this an arena BO1 brew) I would add some Skatewing Spy or Tower Defense

I do like the idea of Talons of Wildwood and I believe I'm going to test it out with my playgroup and see how it goes. As far as Shapers' Sanctuary and Colossal Majesty go I actually haven't found much need for them as Shapers' Sanctuary is very situational and would probably work best as a sideboard and Colossal Majesty is to large of a mana sink in that by the time you could drop it, your mana would be better spent on other creatures since the avg CMC of all the cards is so low. I don't quite understand what you mean by adding Tower Defense , because if I do have a problem with any sort of flying creatures I will actually just throw in Crushing Canopy or Kraul Harpooner from the sideboard and neither of those cards will leave during the next rotation of Fall 2019. I do appreciate the suggestions!

Talons of Wildwood You have some great creatures in here but giving them trample and not getting two for ones as it has some recursion would be a sweet fit. Also Shapers' Sanctuary or Colossal Majesty might help with some card draw along the way. With rotation hitting Tower Defense might be a good fit for those harpooners as you already have fat bodies to knock down those pesky fliers.

Original idea.

Both are scary though... Tower Defense

Thanks MyojinsBane! Arcades is definitely a really fun commander. Tower Defense is sweet, I'll definitely have to find a place for it!

Thanks for the upvotes.

@Homelessguy: Tree of Redemption is on my Maybeboard and I just need to aquire it. Triumph of the Hordes is a good addition for the deck. Thank you.

@MurrSheep: Aegis of the Heavens is just a placeholder in the deck, until I get something better but Hold the Line, for my opinion is too defensive. Tower Defense is much more better for this deck.
