Unstable Mutation Discussion

Noctem so far I've played it against Jeskai Control and Grixis Delver. Both fared extremely well and lost an equal amount. So it really comes down to how fast we can establish a board. The countermagic interactions with Mausoleum Wanderer has really come in handy, especially when you flash spirits in to pump it up.

I have recently made some changes. I still felt like I saw way too many lands so I cut a basic, and Unstable Mutation was a fun-of and not worth it. Phantasmal Image has been included to act as a backup Lord, and Sphinx's Revelation has been added as a one-of, in case I ever flood out.

I'll be taking this to MDN night on Thursday so I'll find out how other archetypes are!

Rubalu Thank you very much! And the anime is tremendous!

White destroy all creatures type cards mixed with blue counters and unsummons could help beat it. Wrath of God is a good example and there are many variations of it. A heavy control deck with a few unblockable creatures like Latch Seeker buffed with Unstable Mutation would help help you beat him. I dunno what your budget is or cards on hand but a white blue control usually (in my experience) murders any green deck. Make a human variation and use Bonds of Faith and Neurok Invisimancer

Did they just colorshift Unstable Mutation? I mean, I can totally see it being Red. But wow... That's an old card to pull forward.

Being a purveyor of Simic Bogles myself, I have a few suggestions for you.

First, try adding a little more power and toughness to your creature. An effective option for me is Unstable Mutation. If you like instant speed pump spells better, Might of Old Krosa & Groundswell are decent choices. The way I add massive power& toughness to my Bogles is by running more land so that I can play Auramancer's Guise (which basically ends the game when played if you're running the right build for it).

So what to switch out for these suggestions? Try ditching Spider Umbra and probably also Ordeal of Thassa since it's too slow.

Second, you need a bit more card advantage, and in a quicker, more lightweight form than the Snake Umbras that you have in the deck now. Might I suggest Curiosity or Keen Sense? & by the way, 2 Aqueous Form mainboard is good, and probably also the right number to run mainboard; having an extra one in the sideboard is useful though.

Third, having enough targets for your auras. I don't mean to rub it in, but you saw the earlier comments, and I agree that you could benefit from a couple or a few Silhana Ledgewalkers. Also an honorable mention for a bigger creature to include is Witchstalker; just in case you find Silhana Ledgewalker to be a bit lackluster when compared with Invisible Stalker.

Fourth, having a proper land base. You don't have to go all out like I have with fetches and shocks, but nevertheless a land upgrade would greatly benefit you. Hinterland Harbor is a great choice, but for your build - Since you're running Yavimaya Coasts - I would say that Botanical Sanctum is likely the better choice. Personally, I'd recommend replacing the temples with the check lands and the pain lands with the fast lands.

Last but not least, regarding your counter-magic suite, try running Stubborn Denial instead of Rune Snag or Mana Leak once you've improved your ways to make those Bogles BIG!

Best of luck with your improvements...

P.S. I thought about running the man lands - Specifically the Treetop Village & the Faerie Conclave. Ultimately, I think that they just slow the deck down and are inifeective since they aren't hexproof.

P.P.S. Surgical Extraction is great to have in the sideboard if your oppent is running board wipes.

Why use Unstable Mutation? Also, where are your lands?
