goodair on God Father (Derevi EDH)

2 days ago

First off, really appreciate the feedback!

Birthing Pod is a remanant of the original deck when I was going heavy stax focus, but I feel its just too good to cut. Sacing derevi for the many 4 drop utility creatures over and over again is unreplaceable as a toolbox card. Sacking the mana dorks for 2 drop hatebears was also very good. Since the transform, I got rid of alot of cards because I would be killed first "kill the stax player". I don't play in a heavy competitive meta but there are some shenanigans that go on and even light stax is more of a threat than someone comboing off, bad threat assessment in my eyes but I guess its the stigma of a stax deck. Since I'm not going that build anymore, I don't have the 1 drop dorks since this deck is already fragile to board wipes/ping damage and there's no need to drop as many stax pieces as quickly as possible. Now I just run more utility lands and having turn 1 green is not consistent enough.

The hatebears that stayed are the ones that have flying, aka Aven Mindcensor/Trygon Predator/Windborn Muse etc... Having a mass amount of flyers is like you said, just fuel for derevi triggers! Thank you for Remorseful Cleric, did not know that card existed.
As for those storage lands, saw those in your deck and will try them out next time I play and see how they do.

Personally, I'm not a fan of running many tutors, pod and evolution are enough. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is bonkers and is something to also try. Would be an auto include if running mana dorks but I explained why those aren't in anymore.

Sigil Tracer lets you copy your opponents spells, Opposition might end up getting the boot. Scavenging Ooze is a mana sink that becomes a good threat, but with Remorseful Cleric he might get replaced, just need to test to know for sure. Give Mirror Entity a try, having a few flyers in the air with a entity can straight up kill someone, its pretty strong when you go wide.

Thanks for all the suggestions capshanks01

Edric, Spymaster of Trest has it's own deck and I don't have enough unblockable / evasion Maybe  Bident of Thassa because it  won't help my opponents.

Cutting cards like Avenger of Zendikar Myr Battlesphere Hornet Queen seems like a bad idea because they give me many experience counters and/or blockers. But worst for me seems to get less experience counters.

Cobra Trap is 1 mana most of the games

Deadeye Navigator can abuse most of my ETB's like the high cmc token makers.  Getting four Myr Tokens for just 1{U} seems pretty solid.  Or two cards with Mulldrifter

Fertilid was cut in my last deck change. Too slow,  too much mana. Getting two lands for 7 or 1 for 5 mana is just not good. Even if it's a creature. And if I have nothing to do with ezuri than putting counters on fertilid something went wrong.

Fauna Shaman discarding doesn't seem that good without recursion. And getting a creature is good  Protean Hulk or  Sage of Hours but revealing is a huge downside in my opinion.

Fungal Sprouting looks good, but I don't think 4mana for most times 1-3 Saproling is that great.  Also it is sorcery speed, that can be very slow.  And not sure when to cast.  First mainphase I will get less counters because ezuri hasn't put counters on something yet. Second mainphase I will get more saprolings because Ezuri could put something before this card.  But the amount he puts on a creature is lower. (I have this Problem with many cards in this deck to be honest)

Wirewood Symbiote I don't run that many elves...maybe okay to run.

Spike Feeder doesn't seem useful. Getting life instead of smacking faces/killing People

There is nearly no targeted removal, you are right.  I just need a day of and rebuilt this deck completly :( But takes time:D

Acidic Slime

Trygon Predator

Scavenging Ooze

That's all. I see the Problem, but bounce isn't the answer.

Broodhatch Nantuko I wanted a second morph,  so my playgroup always knows what's under the morph. And even getting only 2+ tokens out seems okay.

Glimmer of Genius is Instant speed, seeing up to 4 cards isn't bad. And if you don't scry away, the cards you get are good. And I may play an  Aether Hub so it may be more useful.  What draw spells would you play rather?

Fact or Fiction Instant speed, worst case getting only one card I really need, with the option to get  up to 5 cards. (Since politcs is a thing in my group there is a high chance of getting 4 or even 5 cards). Same for here,  what would you play rather? Needs to be instant!

Lightning Greaves yep had this Problem, thought of Neurok Stealthsuit because for {U}{U} it's Instant and I can remove it, by putting it on anything Else

Panharmonicon won't be in here.  It's an really great card,  but not in this deck.

Now to the more positive part :D

Sakura-Tribe Scout seems good, especially if I build more draw into this deck.

Snake Basket never heard of this card before.  Seems pretty solid  in my opinion!

Spellskite oh hell yes I need this card.

Glen Elendra Archmage if I get one, I totally play this wonderful piece of cardboard.

Inkmoth Nexus would be solid, but Infect isn't really my strategy. Blighted Agent has the unblockable thing, that's why he is in. If I ever trade an Inkmoth, he will have a place in this deck.

Shrieking Drake at first I thought this card is weak.  Than I realized that he can bounce himself  (I assume that's what you wanted to say) :D getting experience for just {U} seems broken. I need this immediatly! And if bounce one of my high cmc token dudes to replay them? Even better.

All in all I need to build this deck from zero, and I need to be sure what tactic I'm playing. I need to get cards that I don't have right now. That takes time/money. And then I need time to brew. You can always suggest more, I try to answer fast. But it while take a while to get everything, but I'll Update as soon as I can!

Thanks a Lot for all this help

Another good option: Trygon Predator

Hi Jbot9,

We like your deck a lot; reminds us of our Ezuri deck.

Your land-count seems a bit low to us, for a two-color EDH deck. Even most non-competitive decks would have at least 35-36 lands on average. Especially when it's not filled to the brim with cheap ramping stuff. Aside from some more lands, we would therefore also recommend stuff like Birds of Paradise, Rampant Growth, Cultivate/Kodama's Reach, Simic Signet and Chromatic Lantern.

Some more draw options like Coiling Oracle, Bred for the Hunt and Rhystic Study wouldn't hurt either. Maybe even a Sensei's Divining Top or Scroll Rack for filtering purposes. Also, Nissa, Steward of Elements is an exceptionally strong planeswalker if you want to gain some card advantage; her second ability in particular is one of the strongest non-ult planeswalker abilities we've seen to date.

Other stuff we'd recommend would be Thrummingbird (for some more proliferation) and Simic Manipulator (for some more control). We'd also recommend some more options aside from Lux Cannon to destroy (non-creature) permanents. Trygon Predator and Krosan Grip come to mind.

Hope any of this is useful to you. Good luck with the deck.

The other modes are kinda meh in EDH, so I kinda think its mostly ever only a Disenchant on a stick. When compared to other similar cards in EDH, it stops seeming as great as it does for in 60 card formats. A few other cards that compete with Knight of Autumn off the top:

And I really like Omnispell Adept seems awesome! It's like Elvish Piper for spells!

I like the Blue splash here, but I'd have to agree with Boza that you would probably rather a Nature's Claim or Natural State type effect than Trygon Predator. I also think that you should cut the Spell Rupture and Logic Knot from the sideboard for 3x Negate. I think that Icy Blast is frankly terrible, as is Skaab Ruinator and should both be cut for better cards (perhaps some card advantage?). I do like this concept though!

It surely is modern legal :) It's true it's a little slow. Do you have any particular removals and counters in mind? For now, it contains removal mechanics from Trygon Predator (enchantments and artifacts), hexproof provided by Plaxcaster Frogling +Simic Charm 2x Voidslime and 2x Essence Scatter

Dieball on Classic Simic deck - Comeback ...

Hi everyone! I've recently started playing Magic again, after 12 years of break. My Trusty old Simic gathered a lot of dust, so I started to rebuild it using what I managed to get fast (and cheap). I wonder if it's any good and if anyone could provide any constructive feedback on what I should still change in it. I would greatly appreciete that. The card list is as below:


4x Thrummingbird 1x Vigean Hydropon 3x Trygon Predator 3x Plaxcaster Frogling 1x Vigean Graftmage 2x Vorel of the Hull Clade 2x Skyrider Patrol 3x Cytoplast Manipulator 1x Simic Ragworm 1x Cytoplast Root-Kin 1x Momir Vig, Simic Visionary 1x Experiment Kraj


2x Everflowing Chalice 1x Simic Charm 2x Essence Scatter 2x Voidslime 2x Give // Take 4x Blessings of Nature 2x Doubling Season


5x Island 5x Forest 4x Simic Growth Chamber 2x Hinterland Harbor 3x Llanowar Reborn 1x Oran-Rief, the Vastwood 2x Temple of Mystery
