Fellow Zegana mage! I love the deck, but there are just a few things:

  1. I feel with so much ramp you are able to cut a land or two

  2. Disallow is strictly better Voidslime, but I'd probably play both if you have the room/want more counters

  3. Unexpected Results seems very weak, is it in the deck for personal reasons?

  4. I have had unbelievable results from Greenwarden of Murasa and because you have Deadeye and E-Wit, throwing in an extra turn spell (like Time Warp) gives you access to an Infinite Turns Combo!

+1 from me!

Prisms of Reality


At the beginning of your upkeep, choose a color, then but an X/X illusion token of that color on the battlefield, where X is equal to the number of permanents that color as the token comes into play.

: target spell that has a single creature changes to target an illusion you control.

Make something for controlled chaos (ie, has some element of randomness, but targeting or result must be beneficial, like Unexpected Results, for example)

Rzepkanut on Cascading Chaos, Decent into Madness

Hey! Got some ideas for your chaos deck....first a combo with cards that are intersting alone but hilarious together, Timesifter + Stranglehold = extra turns for only you, other people get turns too just less often... some more free stuff...Omen Machine, Temporal Aperture, Unexpected Results, Master of Predicaments, Hazoret's Undying Fury, Mind's Dilation, Eye of the Storm ... fun and useful thingys like Clever Impersonator, Mirage Mirror.... Homeward Path combos with the Perplexing Chimera and probably other chaos cards in here already. Teferi's Realm is crazy, Zur's Weirding is troll status for sure plus cascade is unaffected by it, Nature's Will and Bear Umbra because they're so good with Yidris. Good luck :)

Hey and welcome to edh. Thats a pretty nice deck! Seems like its a lot of fun to play, but you might get some issues with the mana base. If you want to go the route with lots of basic lands, then go heavily in favour of Forest, and play more basic fetching cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation and my favorite in green decks Blighted Woodland. These will fix your mana better then say Nature's Lore, which is better if you have non-basic forests. If you want some more cheap duals then try Yavimaya Coast, Temple of Mystery and Lumbering Falls. Other fun cards to play with are Unexpected Results, Bounty of the Luxa, Diluvian Primordial, Coiling Oracle and Blatant Thievery. These are just some of the cards I play with these colours. They are not the best, but they are fun. I hope you have a lot of success with your deck.

Exist2Cease on Omni - SCIENCE. How to join the Q continuum

3 months ago

This is one of the most fun and consistent combo decks I've come across. I'm considering buying it since it's fairly cheap and has gotten me wins against some of the best decks in the meta. The main headache is U/B of course. I've made a few changes:

Really don't like the tap lands. I almost never enjoyed drawing them and often it kept me from going off a turn sooner. I replaced with basics and Mana Confluence because as Abthos22 mentions Blood Moon without Blooms/Prisms is often a scoop.

  • 4x Vivid Creek > 1x Forest, 2x Plains, 1 Island
  • 3x Vivid Meadow > 2x Mana Confluence bringing the count down to 60 (sorry)

Unexpected Results over Wargate because I'd rather hit a combo piece or ramp a bit rather than pay 3 for a Bloom.

Maelstrom Pulse and Violent Ultimatum in the board for better answers to trouble permanents.

xyr0s on Simic w/ evolve HELP!

4 months ago

Is this a relatively competitive deck, or a casual deck? If casual: enjoy. I'm not gonna ruin your day.

If it's supposed to play against somewhat competitive decks (fnm-level), you need to change it quite a bit. Starting by buffing Experiment One up to a full set. Remove 3 of the most expensive creatures to do this. Then you could use 4 Hardened Scales. For that, goodbye Plummet, Unexpected Results, and Urban Evolution. Since +1/+1 counters is a theme, Strangleroot Geist fits right in, and so does Avatar of the Resolute - again, remove the most mana-demanding creatures to accomodate (and this is probably going to be some of those you really like, due to their funny and gameturning special abilities - sry about that).

Land: Anything blue-green that comes into play untapped is good. It's an aggro deck, and it shouldn't sit around waiting for mana to get ready.

Iamme10000 on Battle Box - Simic

5 months ago

Oh boy. Simic value is the best value. +1 from me.

This deck feels like a basic value deck: play 2-for-1s, ramp, play big things. While fun, and a core idea of Simic, you might want to split the deck: one for value, and one for +1/+1 counter shenanigans. A few endgame mana dumps would make for some ridiculous plays, and some flicker effects could help abuse all the juicy ETB triggers you got going on. Progenitor Mimic, Mystic Genesis, and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter are some examples.

If you want to keep this as one deck, it'd probably be better to double down on the counters: there are a ton of value cards that still use +1/+1 counters: Fathom Mage and Primordial Hydra and Altered Ego are a few. Sub a few of them in to cement the counter theme and get the evil laughs rolling.

Also, for all casual Simic decks: play Unexpected Results.
